Questioning Authority

Reporter Helen Thomas was finally allowed to ask a question in a press conference (first time in three years). She took it right to Bush:

Helen on Wolf Blitzer's show

While Bush's response was ridiculous and it was a good thing (for him) that he kept cutting her off because she was trying to call him on his BS. But the main point is, someone questioned authority and our country is still here. Questioning those who supposedly represent us IS patriotic.

We should be questioning ALL our representatives...local, state & federal. They work for us. We pay their salaries. They supposedly represent us.

People in Ecuador are in the streets because of a proposed trade agreement with the US. Thousands of people are risking arrest and more. To us, forwarding an e-mail is our "duty". We've become too soft.
