Austria is giving 16-year-olds the power to vote in elections. Is 16 too young to vote?

Too young to vote? Yes in the US, no in most of the rest of the world. Sometimes I'd put the voting limit in the US at 40 or so and even then - ooopppppppssssssss! just saw blog about "amputated penis" gotto go see what happened there.

Do you think children who are bullied should seek outside intervention or stand up for themselves?

There was a time when "stand up" would have been the only reasonable response but the times in which we live now seem to say to me discretion is the better part of valor and to wait 'til you can blow the bully away some night.

GOP legacy

And once again I ask, "Were there not Democrats in a position of authority and power in Washington during this 'rape' of America?"Of course there were but the LTE writer (and a number of others) seem to forget this one small point!Now I dislike Bush, Cheney, Rove and the bunch of 'em as much as the next guy but let's be honest the Dems ain't done us no good for eight years either.
