    Would you make one for Mel Donovan, perhaps including a mountain resembling Mt. Hood atop or behind the words "Mel Donovan, Senator for Oregon"? If not, then an evergreen would behind the aforementioned words would be great. Y'all we really need to give Bolster a round of applause for taking the time with these designs!

    SmL Proust on Reported GOP Controversy "I don't really have much interest in whatever it is actually going on in the GOP right now with regards to the Whip position, their caucus and how its run is up to them, but I will say that so far Majority Leader Allen and I have had square dealings and amiable relations, and he seems like more of a square shooter to me than many I've dealt with in my career"

    The deleted text did come back. I have not revisited editing the hopper file yet; I will check.

    Mr. President, If I may respond to my colleague from Indiana. I understand his concerns about the issue of women's health and his arguments that this bill may not have the effect of reducing abortions I have. However, those arguments miss the point of this bill. It is not a question of women's health or reducing unwanted pregnancies in our society or even fighting what many call the culture wars. No this bill is about who we are as a nation. About the moral bedrock of our society. Are we a nation that endorses a cruel and inhumane form of torture just because it benefits a few in our society? I pray that we are not. I pray that we are wise enough to understand how to help the unfortunate and downtrodden in our society, while still sticking to the morals and norms that guide our society. I yield.

    Mr. Daniels, for himself and others proposes A Resolution Condemning and censuring Senator Mollie Fowler of Hawaii Whereas the Declaration of Independence declares, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." Whereas recent remarks made by Senator Mollie Fowler bring shame and disgrace upon the United States Senate and all of congress Whereas the remarks by Senator Fowler promote an infanticidal agenda that has no place on either side of the debate concerning abortion and reproductive issues Whereas the remarks by Senator Fowler do not represent the views of either party in Washington D.C. and are disavowed by all members of this chamber. Now therefore, be it Resolved, That- (1) The United States Senate strongly condemns the remarks made by Senator Mollie Fowler of Hawaii which dehumanize the lives of innocent unborn children and promote an infanticidal agenda contrary to American ideals and beliefs; (2) Senator Fowler of Hawaii be censured; (3) Senator Fowler present herself in the well of the U.S. Senate for the pronouncement of censure; and (4) Senator Fowler be censured with the public reading of this resolution by the President Pro Tempore

    Mr President, I'm a conservative. I believe in balanced books. But I have to ask, what on earth are my colleagues thinking, politicizing the debt while we are at war? It was not even two years ago when I joined my colleagues in one of the first major acts as a United Senator to vote in favor of the decision to send our boys to war, following the dastardly attacks on our country on September 11th, 2001. When we voted in favor, we were committing to the long haul. At the very least, surely we were not going let our debts lapse, less than two years later, while American fighting men and women are on the ground, under fire, in another country. Let's not forget, Mr President, how privileged we are to sit here and grandstand about dollars and cents while others are risking their lives on the other side of the world. So I say this: let's pay our bills, whatever the cost. Let's get our armed forces the resources they need to finish the job. Let's keep the lights on at home. And when the job is done and our boys are home, then we can talk about balancing this budget. I yield.
