On this date, in 1972 the first article exposing the Watergate scandal was printed in The Washington Post.
The subsequent articles and investigations were spear-headed by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein.
Watergate eventually brought down the Presidency of Richard Nixon.
IMHO the Watergate scandal is the epicenter of where politics in America went wrong, on BOTH sides of the aisle.
Since this time our public officials have been more concerned with “gotcha” than service.
Today was a historic day for America! The United States Supreme Court ruled that DOMA was unconstitutional and did not issue an opinion on Prop 8, which in effect allows same-sex marriage in California. Read about it here, here, here, here, here and here.
Posted from my Facebook page earlier today…..
Watched Paula Deen this morning on the Today Show. She is 100% right, if ANYONE on this earth has not said something they shouldn’t have, let them be the one to step up and throw the first stone. Until then, how about we all start showing a bit of compassion. This world would be a much better place if we were not always trying to play “gotcha” with each other.
I have no doubt Paula Deen has done a lot more good in this world than bad and that should count for something, not just the mistakes of her past.
And now I step down off my soap-box.
