Politics. Don Granberry on the old Spork Boards was quite fond of talking about them, and here we continue on in that fine tradition.

What a journey.
There are a lot of Dems that donate extra money to the government. Ask one of them how to do it. Well, at least they say we all should.. I'm assuming that means they do and have been doing it and like it so much they say we should too. So, there has to be SOME mailing address for donations.

What a journey.

So, I'm starting to 'come around' to this national healthcare debate. I mean, I know longer violently erupt at the radio/tv when I hear talks about. Should I see someone? I mean, am I OKAY? What more can I expect? What are the symptoms? :)

What a journey.

The stimulus package is like getting one of those free credit cards with an extra line of credit. Well, at least the whole thing comes crashing down after the new prez is installed, Bush won't take the blame then.

And don't you think at least some of it is deserved?

While the borrowing may occur during the term of one president or another, but who really cares? I mean only a complete head-in-the-sand type would care about the raw numbers -- now if that debt is used to build things/create something of long lasting value then most people would be fine with it. The real problem is that Bush did not have the capacity (?knowledge, ?desire) to expose law makers who grew that debt to building literal bridges to nowhere.

Further Bush will be remembered for "weapons of mass destruction" in the same way that Richard Nixon will be remembered for "I am not a crook"... Perhaps a decade or so after Bush is dead (which given his relative youth might not be until Chelsea Clinton's grandkids are elbowing George HW & Barabara great grandkids for their turn on the throne...) he'll be remembered for SOMETHING less negative, but I won't hold my breath.

I think Bush will most be remembered for the amazing, generally unwarranted, confidence with which he makes every decision. And his continued certainty that every past decision will eventually be proven to have been correct.

I think it's asinine and immature to lay the world's problems at one man, period. And because others can't form a decision, be steadfast and self-assured is not a good reason.

What a journey.

I don't. Some people created more problems than others, though. And I seem to remember one president saying, "The buck stops here."

Sure. But if one makes an incredibly bad decision, being steadfast and self-assured about it is not a virtue.

My Car is 11 years old. My computer is a used 4+ year old tower. My clothes come from Target or Old Navy (walmart will never get any of my money). My TV is 6 years old, but it's only that new because the kids literaly smashed the old one.

If it wasn't for $1K a week coke habit, I'd be swimming in money!

Oh, come on... who would be stupid enough to teach that when you're struck on one cheek you should turn the other one in order to ... keep the peace or something?

How insane is THAT! I mean, that would have to be some seriously deranged loony... He'd probably be one of them hippie wackos that would give all their money to charity and "live off the land and niceness of others" or something.

How can any sane person talk about ethanol as a competitive solution? Bio-diesel, perhaps. E85? Heaven help us.

yeah we've known ethanol to be a bad gig for a long time, just didn't realize how bad. Biodiesel is better but not the silver bullet some (myself at times) like to make it out to be. Were still going to need plenty of personal electric cars and find a different way of shipping mass goods (semi trailers are convenient but terribly energy inefficient).
