The Commons is a weblog for concerned citizens of southeast Iowa and their friends around the world. It was created to encourage grassroots networking and to share information and ideas which have either been suppressed or drowned out in the mainstream media.

"But if the cause be not good, the king himself hath a heavy reckoning to make, when all those legs and arms and heads, chopped off in battle, shall join together at the latter day and cry all 'We died at such a place;' some swearing, some crying for a surgeon, some upon their wives left poor behind them, some upon the debts they owe, some upon their children rawly left. I am afeard there are few die well that die in a battle; for how can they charitably dispose of any thing, when blood is their argument? Now, if these men do not die well, it will be a black matter for the king that led them to it; whom to disobey were against all proportion of subjection." (Henry V, Act V, Scene 4)

May Belle Osborne Letter 9/04/04

Dear Editor,
Arnold Schwarzenegger rewrote history in his RNC speech. Richard Nixon and Hubert Humphrey never debated in 1968. Presidential debates took a hiatus from 1960(Kennedy/Nixon) to 1976 (Ford/Carter)

True to his acting career in a make believe world, Arnold ignored reality and lied about the fundamental values on which he said he based his entire political code of beliefs for his life.

Dismissing reality (education, economy, healthcare and national security) and denying historical fact and truth is a flaw of the Republicans of the current administration.

It is frustrating to witness an administration built on secrecy and deceit with the money and majorities on the FEC and FCC controlling the airwaves. The current administration shows total disrespect for the reasoning intellect of average citizens, expecting us to live their sad lie. We never hear the truth. The average citizens are smarter than that, are they not?

May Belle Osborne Neosho,MO
