CCM doesn’t care who you vote for as long as you get informed in a balanced way and vote. We believe there should be a compulsory voting law, much like compulsory jury service, which by the way takes much longer. We don’t think the penalties for not going to vote should be harsh, especially on first offenses, but repeat offenders maybe should face small fines or the loss of their voting privilege.

The U.S. went to Afghanistan to attack Al Qaeda for attacking New York. The war started and for sure sent many terrorists running and dethroned the Taliban. Then W decided that Saddam had something to do with the invasion of New York, invaded Iraq, took down a statute of Saddam, then parachuted onto a Naval Carrier Ship and declared the now infamous “Mission Accomplished”.

What a week this has been. Just as President Obama’s ratings were falling, gas prices rising and the disastrous tornados in the South which killed about 345 people, President Barack Obama’s timing could not be any better for the killing of the most internationally wanted, mass-murderer of our time, Osama Bin Laden, on May 2, 2011.
