I know this is going to piss you off but here goes:
I used to like GWB, a lot. I thought he was very solid and staid in the aftermath of 911. I also believe that his "asleep at the switch" was passed down from Clinton. They did not pay nearly anough attention to the threat. They had to know something was coming. There was already one "successful" attempt to knock those buildings down. The onyl thing that saved towers one and two the first time is their dumbass placement of the bomb and lack of proper research into engineering.
I think GWB has done an absolute horrible job at the "war on terror". He has alienated almost every, no not almost, every nation except Great Brittain. The lastest pictures coming out of Iraq with the humiliating torture by Americans will get worse. His inept regime failed to stop that when even the Red Cross was aware of it. Rumsfeld should go.
They will not let us elect GWB for a second term. Look at oil and natural gas prices. Then there's terror. They completely changed the outcome of the Spanish presidential election, no two ways about it. They will do the same here.
Sad days coming.
We should have stayed in afghanistan and got OBL, and let the UN take care of SH no matter how slow they wanted to do it. There is no way he could have gotten wawy with anything with that close a watch on him.
Our country is in grave danger now, worse than before he was elected. Before there was a handful of radicals against us. Now the mainstream muslim is getting pissed.
Like I said I used to like him. Not any more, and I have never voted anything but straight R party line.
Wealthy, just got off my soapbox when I answered your post, sorry if I came off as too strong.
I have 4 children; twin soon to be 24 year old boys (One of them is the returnee from Iraq), a soon to be 21 year old girl and a soon to be 8 year autistic son.
<< es. I have made a free choice. I don't want the government to try and decide these things for me.
If the government was serious trying to stop engineering and programming jobs from going over seas, they would teach REAL math and science in the public schools, instead of the "politics of inclusion." >>
Take it easy Pkewl, it seems as you take every post very personally...I was just making an off the cuff joke.
<< I write this as the parent of an Autistic child, too. >>
I'm assuming this isn't the child that just got back from Iraq...
Robert. Yep. If we stopped all outsourcing and other countries did the same the number of jobs lost in the U.S. would make the Clinton recession look like a cake walk. (I just couldnt help myself with the Clinton quip. LOL The devil made me do it.)
>>This is comming from the guy who wouldn't drive anything but an American car?<<
Well, there building Hondas and Nissans in the US.
The government had to decide some time ago what is foreign and what is domestic so they could figure out import/export reports.
Now, I see a Honda drive down the road and now that's domestic because it was assembled in the states.
I'm driving in my Buick down the road. But that's foreign because it was assembled in Canada.
I'm getting confused and don't know what to do anymore when wanting to buy American..LOL
Wealthy observes, "This is comming from the guy who wouldn't drive anything but an American car? :)"
Yes. I have made a free choice. I don't want the government to try and decide these things for me.
If the government was serious trying to stop engineering and programming jobs from going over seas, they would teach REAL math and science in the public schools, instead of the "politics of inclusion." I write this as the parent of an Autistic child, too.
What's the matter Adolph are you tongue tied or just not able to take up my challenge of facts like a man? No you just make infantile comments about diapers like a 7 year old. You're sad and without backbone a sniveling child that is reduced to mommy's diaper comments I feel sorry for you. Can't intelligently converse is typical of the ignorant right wing RepublaNAZI's unless they can fabricate lies.
Prove me wrong Adolph or maybe ask some of GWB's Nat'l Guard pals to help you if they can ever be found. But you're so F'ing stupid since the repubs planted the Stepford chip in your Neanderthal area where a brain should be. Oh & by the way this will make you happy as reported by Tom Brokaw tonite that Greenspan said that the "Bush Budget deficits pose large risk � Greenspan..
"Shortfalls threaten America's long-term economic stability" This may be why the overall mkt fell. link below to report for the BLTI board this is too deep for Adolph the Stepford chip will not allow for comprehension if he did understand it Ashcroft may come after him for having a brain & put him in jail without due process..Adolph don't forget put your hood on> http://msnbc.msn.com/id/4915573/
no that it matters, but Cinton signed NAFTA and then strong armed the Democratic Congress to pass it. It was his finest moment in another wise wasted presidency...
You have confirmed my opinion of you. Clinton was elected in '92. He raised taxes after promising to lower them. A majority of republicans were elected to congress in '94. They forced him to sign NAFTA and Welfare reform. He was and is a fool. A clever fool that is beloved by the left wing media and who continues to meddle in the political arena.
You keep bouncing around on me oldbold. Are you sure you're not a retired politician?
LOL I'm sorry for confusing you. :-)
That the regions inhabitants are usually called Arabs is unfortunate. Arabs are from Arabia. They have migrated to many areas, mostly in the middle east but also all over the world although very thinly in the far west and asia. There are Arab jews, christians, and other religious sects. They are predominately Muslims and a small minority of them are Wahabi which is the extreem form of the religion.
Islam continues to expand and is now in almost every country in the world. It's extreem manifications are seen in what many are now calling, and I did not invent this term, Islamofacists. These people have decided to destroy western culture by what ever means it takes. Since death is not a problem to them and, in fact, they actively seek it, then if we want to keep on keeping on we are going to have to fight them and give no quarter because they will certainly not give quarter.
The islamofacists are the main enemy. Unfortunately, the muslim religion is fertile ground for the promotion of the extreem fringe. The religion provides a rational, an excuse for mayhem. This is why prisons are such fertile ground for converts. Nothing is too dark if it is done in the name of their version of God.
This is the same position of the Christian religion in starting in about 800 to 1500 AD as evidenced by the Spanish inquisition, to name the most extreme case. We got over it except for a few very minor and marginal sects. Remember the coolade, the treatment of the Mormons, etc?
Well enough of this. Back to the fiberglass.
