Once again thinking is not knowing...
Convictions are not truth...
I didn't have time to go point by point but I'm pretty sure that the federal gov. grew the largest and fastest in the Bush years...http://www.independent.org/newsroom/news_detail.asp?newsID=31
OK, pretty certain.
As far as drawing AQ in Iraq because it was most favorable, I think that Iraq was most unfavorable, we're still there and they were not there when we got there. They'll be there and in most of the Arab world long after we leave. More favorable would have been Liban, Syria or anything with water front, not some land locked country. (this paragraph is opinion based, not fact checked, though I guess I could research it a little..No time. Sorry.
The Afghan front is not so much about Afghanistan, but more about the Pakistani NUCLEAR arsenal and it's precarious government, (BTW Pronounced : new clee ear, not nucular)
On the Collapse mode, I agree we have to turn this thing around, seems to me that most of the bailout money has been recovered already excepted from AIG
GM and Chrysler bankruptcies resulted in striving companies that are now growing and tons of jobs nationwide that didn't get canned.
Another great move!
And Ford is an example of a company that has their eye on the ball! No bailout and going strong!
On Health care, yes we Americans pay the most in the world more than any other people, yet where do we rank?http://www.photius.com/rankings/healthranks.html
Why?... Something has to be done, step by step the journey of a thousand mile is cover one step at a time...
Well...I think Obama is doing a pretty good job, had we had McCain who can't do Email with Palin...I'll leave her alone, but unpredictable wing-nut is close to as good a description I can think of.
I think that before we post hearsay, we should check all facts from a variety of sources in order to be more informed rather than restating the Glenn Beck and Rush BS that is now so prevalent. Most of their stories start off with: "I heard that..." The magical phrase that they can fall back and hide behind to avoid libel suits, ..."Just repeating what I heard!"
If they want to be part of the news reporters they should check their facts if not hey should have a disclaimer saying that most of what they say is BS and that they are in the entertainment busines. And personally I think that those who regurgitate this unjustified BS are not worth much in terms of positive contribution to our National well being.
I would like to stay away from the racism issue that is so prevalent in between the lines, I don't care what my president looks like, I want a leader who get things done to position our country to be able to stay relevant in a changing world.
We are no longer or soon will no longer be the biggest economy in he world, we ought to wake up and make sure we don't become the Dunces of the planet.
BTW Life in the hives...Communism! At least Socialism! All for one, the one being the whole.
So there we go for another round of opinions. Please take the time to research and prove your statements.
