The largest flag to survive the attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 is hung outside St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Tucosn, AZ., as family, friends, and the nation gather to say goodbye to a young life that began on a day of national tragedy, and whose life was shattered and taken in another national tragedy.

The tide may be turning against years of effort to restrict the influence of money in federal elections.
Will President Obama – who surfed to an election victory on a towering wave of campaign donations – be able to hold back the threatening tide?
One potential setback is beyond his control. The Supreme Court will likely decide in its next term whether to alter more than a century of restrictions on corporate campaign-finance activity in federal elections.
But the president can influence other key issues, if he can summon the political will. So far, he hasn’t shown much.
In his run for president, for instance, Mr. Obama promised to rely on public financing in the general election. The limited funding is meant to act as a brake on spending and donor influence – and put candidates on equal financial footing.
But Obama reneged, becoming the first general election candidate to refuse public funding. He raised record private donations and had a huge war-chest advantage over Republican John McCain, who accepted the $84 million limit of public money.

It has been said that if you want to know what is going on in Washington, just look at the record. From the record, it appears that as the clamoring began over the fact that Sen. John McCain was born in the Panama Canal Zone to American citizens (serving in the military), Barack Obama attached himself to McCain’s cause as a means of protecting himself as well.
A bill known as S. 2678: Children of Military Families Natural Born Citizen Act. The bill was co-sponsored by Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL), Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY), Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ), and Sen. Thomas Coburn (R-OK), in February 2008. This Act attempted to allow the Senate to make changes to the Constitution’s Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 with reference to the definition of “natural born citizen” and that requirement as it applies to the eligibility of the President of the United States. This bill met the same defaet that similar changes to the Naturalization Act had faced.
Is there irony in the fact that this legislation was sponsored by Presidential candidates in the midst of the elction, one now being the subject of more than 30 lawsuits, challenging his eligibility!
