Quoteit\'s gonna take a lot of hard work... but it can happen.
QuoteDo any of you think that media outlets such as CNN, NY Times, ABC, CBS, NBC are glad the Dems won?
Quote Now that the party you feel can better solve americas issues is in power how would you like to see such problems such as illegal immigration, the terrorist threat by radical islamists, and soaring health care costs solved. Please give specific answers.
QuoteHey Pharty! Long time no rant. How it hanging bro? Anyway,WE ARE ALL GLAD! Unfortunately, at the moment it is going to be tough enough simply cleaning up the messes that were created while our balanced power system was running under haywire conditions. Face it, our system works best when there are competing voices in positions of power NOT when we have a single party that can rule as it sees fit. MHOFWIW.
QuoteWE ARE ALL GLAD!
Quoteall i can gather from that is you really have no solutions to problems but in the same breath think you could have made a better system than americas founding fathers
QuoteSo, you are saying the \'Founding Fathers\' planned on having a single all powerful voice running the government?
QuoteOldfolkie, I was wondering where you went. Did you do the novel writing thing again?
QuoteI\'ve been away part of the time & swamped at work the rest, buswolley. I started a novel again but it won\'t get done this November. It got hijacked by a cold & more of that pesky work. Let\'s see now, if I had a vote (and I don\'t, not being an American citizen ) I\'d want to reverse the recent abrogation of my Constitution & civil rights, dismantle the crypto-fascist organization "Department of Homeland Security" into its component parts (some of which were actually doing some good for USAmericans, in their former incarnations, like FEMA), and follow the money that\'s been going to the "war on terrorism" to see just exactly where it has been going. I\'d want to subpoena the "Commander in Chief" and the "President of the Senate" and the outgoing "Secretary of Defense" as part of an investigation into the Iraq war. Just to be getting on with. (Not that I think they\'d have any more compunction about lying under oath than they did without...or wait, isn\'t the oath of office a kind of oath that should require you to tell the populace the truth? hmm) Of course, if I could make better use of the money than bombing Iraqui civilians I\'d be delighted. By spending it on things like health care, education, infrastructure...you know, the "public good"?To be fair, right now I want to ask the current regime in my own country (more oil-patch fundamentalists, bottom-line feeders, makes me kind of queasy to listen to their rhetoric echoing their southern cousins) questions about why we\'re in Afghanistan, mopping up after B/C/R\'s failed attempt on Osama bin Laden, and get some more resources directed to our own health care, education & infrastructure, too. Oh and by the way, I do ask those questions, in editorial letters and questions to MPs and Ministers. It\'s my duty as a citizen of a democratic nation to do so. Funny thing, I always thought it the duty of citizens of your Republic to do so too. Lately though, I\'ve seen an awful lot of people expressing their opinions being tromped on as "unpatriotic" by people who simply have a different set of opinions.That constructive enough? specific enough? All IMO. Nobody need agree with my personal views, even if I think it would be nice if more people did...
Quote...i hope its discovered that saddam did in fact have weapons and that the 14 month period we wasted at the united nations making the case caused the saddam regime enough time to move em elsewhere so americans can finally realise the UN is a worthless body and we may finally tell these thirld world thugs to pack their shit and go home.
Quoteold folkie why do you feel its someone elses responsibility to pay for your healthcare? and why stop there? why not we all get free food, free cars,free gas for said cars, free pot, free housing, free internet, etc etc seriously man get a real job and pay for your own health care.
Quotetrust me the subpoenas will start rolling out very soon
Quotei hope its discovered that saddam did in fact have weapons
QuoteI, and everyone else who works here, undertake a social contract that says it is for the public good to provide basic healthcare, education, infrastructure, for everyone in the country.
QuoteI believe Cheney went on record recently that he would use Executive Privilege to avoid a subpoena.OMG. Is this what you dream about at night or is all of your time caught up in some sick fantasy world?
