This looks like where I'm going to end up seeking out the truth.

So I'm reseaching web hosts because i want to make a portfolio site and learn how to do joomla, drupal, blah blah blah.

Thus far http://www.justhost.com/ seems pretty straight forward - although they want a 4 year commitment (all due up front)

As a fellow Georgian, I'm sure you are familiar with the saying, "I'm so mad I could spit".  Well, that's how myself, my family, circle of friends, co-workers, and everyone else I engage feels about the current situation in Washington, DC.  However, you should feel very proud of yourself:  Not one of these souls thinks you're the problem.  In fact, we're very proud of our senators and we know you are doing everything in your power to not let the thousands of lobbyists and millions of influential dollars wreak havoc with our livelihood.

Not too long ago I wrote you regarding the outrageous economic stimulus bill (we spent our $1200 on the house we just bought, along with a new car to support our growing family), the Wall Street Bailout, and most importantly, the auto bailout.  I'm sorry, but just these three pieces of spending which are HUGE one-offs account for more money than I can imagine.  I really can't imagine that much money.  Not many Georgians can.  So how do you intend to rise above business as usual in the capitol and say, "We're spending more than we're bringing in";  anyone who feels comfortable with that needs to be shown in the worse light possible!"

I have yet to see where any federal program has had to undergo any sort of budget cuts.  We've seen it here in Georgia with Gov. Perdue mandating education take a huge hit, with Mayor Franklin having to take a hard line on emergency services, but nothing from Washington.  When will you take the position of, "something needs to be cut if we're going to go down this path?"  From what I can tell, several programs needed to receive budget cuts even before we talked about new spending.

The people here in Georgia are tired of spending when there is no money to go around, seeing our hard earned dollars decrease in both value (lower interest rates) and buying power (higher inflation due to printing of new $$).  We're tired of the media, lobbyists, and politicians skewing commonly used rhetoric like some backwards 1984 excerpt.

If you don't start speaking against the obvious nuances which over time cause people to become so disgusted with our government, then you will see the end of your party's and our government's relevance.

Thank you,

Jack McClure

We need to give this money to the people who earned it. I am sick of Washington millionaires trying to decide which of their cronies should get the next wad of taxpayer money," Rep. Louie Gohmert said.

The Fairtax will solve these problems, even with vague numbers and statistics which are not defined nor cited consistently from story to story.

This is so cool! They got light to bend backwards. Although it's just a proof of concept, it's a breakthrough. Now if they can get it down to something we can use with fishing, those little guys don't stand a chance!
