Thank Republican in congress for helping and making rich the ARAB world and oil firms.
Donot blame BILL LAN~din High intrest rate are bad for banks specially when BOA hold 10% of US deposit's Someone has to pay higher intrest to all that money in the bank
Presently for the last twenty or so in the USA (which has become a banana republic for lack of interest in true public service).
I grew up in Chile.
The mea culpa comes from the fact that I recognize that at times I could have done more than just be aware. Then again the price of honesty or excesive self righteousness is a lot higher than being a pasive "no evil spotter"
"Where did I get the stat mentioned?From the US military.Women recieve less treatment for combat related stress."
Do you suppose that it's because they are not deployed to frontline combat duty??
Just a logical and factual comment, not emotional.
I like well versed arguments that stay within the reasonable decor.
One could argue that messianic devotion to humna rights is a weak political plataform.
I tell you that this premise changes dramaticaly when it is your kin and blood that for what ever reason begin to disappear with total impunity. It is even more disconcerting specially when you grew up in a western democracy.
Again from an anglo european perspective, just a banana republic if you may.
The scary part is that it reveals the human capacity for ill greed ( must just be the money to be made) or what? that enables such horrible things?
The funy part is that I think that the same ethical corrosion that permits human rights abuses , is also behind business thievery.
We have been paying for that now here with enron, tyco, and perhaps even the phony oil crisis.
You can put any name on the blame but after all it belongs to all of us , as in one way or another we are all enablers.
Then you could say clintons years were growth,when in fact wall-street fleased 8 tril from the american's retirements,Fanny mae,enron,world con,etc,etc, ran wild,...it was all smoke and mirrors while the real economy was moving off shore.
"Women have less problems as they are better able to handle the stresses of combat."
Where on earth did you come up with this one. The fact is that it is the policy of the US services to NOT assign women to frontline combat duty. Yes, they have seen action and have been killed while serving but that goes along with the type of terrorist fighting going on, not traditional combat.
"Women more emotional,that's a myth."
It's a FACT based on countless studies conducted. My guess is you are a women and just don't like this fact. Sorry, as I said it's not intended to be a put down but should be celebrated as part of our DIVERSITY...
