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)

Bush Most Unpopular President Ever

Buried in the last paragraph on p. 12A of the USA Today:
Meanwhile, Bush reached an unwelcome record.
By 64%-31%, Americans disapprove of the job he is doing. For the first
time in the history of the Gallup Poll, 50% say they "strongly
disapprove" of the president. Richard Nixon had reached the previous
high, 48%, just before an impeachment inquiry was launched in 1974.
