Obama should make Bush, Cheney, explain actions
The first thing Id like to see Barack Obama do in 2009 is force Bush and Cheney to explain what happened to their promise that Iraqs oil billions would pay for their (fake) war in Iraq. Instead we taxpayers got stuck with the bill. This was classic bait-and-switch. Obama should seize their assets and Halliburtons and force them to reimburse the trillions we lost.

The world celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ
Re Dennis Middlebrooks letter, There are other holidays besides Christmas, Nov. 28-30: There is no other feast celebrated all the world over like the birth of Jesus Christ. Its mighty hypocritical of people of faiths other than Christians to try and demean the meaning of Christmas. Granted it does not mean what it used to because its a commercial business, its about stuff instead of salvation, but if Jesus would not have been born and his message passed through generations, what would merchants be using as excuse for selling toys and cameras? I think we should take away the national holiday and make it a personal or floating day we can take any time to celebrate whatever we feel like.
