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)

Congresscritters Rated by Veterans Group--Democrats Rule!

Wow. Take a look at this table, listing the ratings of current congress members by the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. Everyone rated above a C is a Democrat, save Independent Jim Jeffords, who caucuses with Dems). Every single C and below is a Republican. Our own Jim Talent earns a big fat D+, which actually stands him rather well in comparison to the rest of his Republican brethren and sistren.
