Happy 'Character Counts Week' Y'all !!!!

Betcha did not even know it was 'Character Counts Week' did you?

Well it is. The Preznit even proclaimed it, so clean up your acts you miscreants.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim October 15 through October 21, 2006, as National Character Counts Week. I call upon public officials, educators, librarians, parents, students, and all Americans to observe this week with appropriate ceremonies, activities, and programs.

Cuz' you know Bush is all about character and not lying and stuff. In fact, you could say that we've "turned the corner" on lying and declared "mission accomplished" on being forthright. Bush and Castle are just brimming with character so this week do as they say and not as they do. Got it? Good!

Reid to Reimburse Campaign for Donations
AP ^

By JOHN SOLOMON Associated Press Writer


Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid has been using campaign donations instead of his personal money to pay Christmas bonuses for the support staff at the Ritz-Carlton where he lives in an upscale condominium. Federal election law bars candidates from converting political donations for personal use. Questioned about the campaign expenditures by The Associated Press, Reid's office said Monday he was personally reimbursing his campaign for $3,300 in donations he had directed to the staff holiday fund at his residence.

Reid also announced he was amending his ethics reports to Congress to more fully account for a Las Vegas land deal, highlighted in an AP story last week, that allowed him to collect $1.1 million in 2004 for property he hadn't personally owned in three years.

In that matter, the senator hadn't disclosed to Congress that he first sold land to a friend's limited liability company back in 2001 and took an ownership stake in the company. He collected the seven-figure payout when the company sold the land again in 2004 to others.
Dear R-cubed,


Thank you.
