    Ahhhhhh....

    1.) He just comes out and says they are wealth redistributing socialists.

    2.) They are using the same tactics they decry. Goebbels and Goering both talk about using "patriotic" overtones to get the masses to do what they want.

    3.) Do they really not understand the idea as to how the economy works? Can't they see what happens if you tax the wealthy and large companies more? or do they just not care, because they are looking for their moral equivilant of war. The thing they need to keep our eyes off the ball and looking instead at the evil <insert whatever here> that is to blame for our woes.

    Of course, in THEIR context its a good thing, right?

    If this was not so serious, it would be funny.

    Time for theater of the mind.

    Close your eyes and think.....Bush-Doctorin'. Bush Doctoring......Not Doctrine, DOCTORING!!!!

    He was merely inquiring about Palin's grooming and dipilatory practices.

    Got it?

    -----------------------


    I had to laugh about the Sara Palin email site getting hacked,

    A woman news 'presenter' wanted to know if any of SP's emails were of the kind that would be harmful to the vice prez cnadidate.

    Now, the same people who are so adamant about the government looking at THEIR EMAILS are having a field day looking into the SP inbox.

    If that had happened to them they would be SCREAMING about privacy and looking toward the same government (the one they want to stay out of their emails) to enact some laws to keep their postings under wraps.

    How dumb do you want to be?

    You want to exchange chain emails, exchange pics of your ugly family, dirty racist jokes and stories to your friends about how you hate your SO, think the person that delivers the office mail is cute and the video clip of the stripper that pulls down a chest of drawers on her head.


    You want the freedom to send it all across the planet but don't want anyone to laugh at the wrestling midget video you watch once a week? Then don't bother hitting the send button.

    If it happens to you, you will cry for the sky to meet the earth and for a LAW TO BE PASSED to keep your boring Inbox outta sight.

    Clear as mud Richard. So it was just a pipe dream of yours.

    What, getting an answer about it? Or Charles Gibson being banned to the local topiary beat at News 9, Your Local Station?

    Neither.

    Unless Palin pulls a "Spears" we will never know!

    I was just making light of CG's question and the way people have reacted to SPs reaction to the inquiry. Gibson sat down and injected his own bias/take to the interview.

    Bush Doctrine? Like WTF called the bumbling pres and his questionable conclusions a "Doctrine"? I guess it's harder to pull questions out of your head when you get to Gibson's place in life.

    That one must have caused a need for a tube of Prep H. He was stretching for it, all the way. It's way too enjoyable to watch everyone act and be stupid until the 4th of November.

    Both sides got tweaked by the question. The Dems got aroused because she didn't know about "the doctrine" and the Reps were bothered by the invention of the term!

    And Charlie snickers about the gotcha moment he invented that made everyone waste 3-4 days trying to figure out what the eff a Bush Doctrine
    is-Since I thought it was a 'doctorin' question I saved myself some time.

    --------------------


    Both of the FN bobos waste time traveleing to places they wil never visit again, as president or citizen, shaking hands with people looking to get a close look at a saviour, it's the ultimate political/seasonal holiday.

    Think about it.

    It's like Christmas. You have fake 'blue and red' Santas visiting people and asking them what they want-doesn't mean they will get it. Politicians spend money like home owners looking for the ultimate outdoor decoration -a fake, feel good warnth that masks a nasty attitude for the rest of the year. You get taken by the plastic snowman or the fake reindeer standing on the lawn. And the LIGHTS!!!!

    Political ads are like Christmas lights, They waste electricity, they show great promise then you get used to them and don't even bother to pay attention after a while, then you get tired of them and finally pull them down.

    The good part?
    You can't reuse political commercials!

    When the day comes and your guy doesnt' get elected, It's like a run to the tree and finding out that someone saw your list then said, "Tough S, they will get what Santa says and can afford".

    On Election day half of us will be ticked off, another group satisfied,

    As citizens we get gifts but nothing like we wanted. Then there will be the rich people who can afford to give and get what ever their heart desires. They bought the office seat for a chump that will make it Christmas, for them, every day for four years.

    I don't really bother with what ends up under the tree for me. I think I have what I need. What matters to me is the Message Of The Season.

    After all, Isn't that what an Election is? Wishing and hoping, then ending up with something you didn't want, and can't return!

    Maybe I do like Christmas better.

    On a similar note... Is Mrs. Clinton ignorant of history, or does she just see this as an opportunity for more government control of our lives?

    http://wcbstv.com/politics/hillary.c....2.823496.html

    The stock market crashed in 1929. But the Great Depression did not get going full tilt until the government got involved in 1933.

    Those that do not know their history are doomed to repeat it.

    I can just imagine our 'leaders' in Washington rejoicing about the economy. What better way to get he sheep more in line than the economy going to crap? The perfect "moral equivilant of war."

    So it's the use of the term "Bush Doctrine" that riled you up? I've heard
    it before. I read quite a lot on politics & have seen it used regularly.

    I guess I am a moron because I hadn't heard that term used before....
    Riled up? No, because immediately my mind went to the gutter - I was having so much fun with the Bush Doctorin' I wondered why some other filthy pig like me hadn't thought about that joke.

    PS31,

    The "UN"!

    If you catch a movie called Idiocracy- I know, I have been raving like an idiot about it- they have a funny little part about how the 'UN' solves the problems of the world. If you like stupid movies, you'll love this one!

    You know what I find amazing? How most people in "the biz", either plitician or 'journalist' are looking at what is going on with our economy.

    In the Carter years and expanced upon in the Clinton years, Fannie, Freddie, et all...were REQUIRED to give loans to people who could never pay them back. All the while, politicans, mostly "D's" but a lot of "R's" too... Pocketed lots of money from them. NOW, when those loans go bad (shocker) we have our current crisis.

    But what pisses me off the most... MORONS on both sides are STILL trying to point fingers and make political hay out of this. McBush surely is not a stroing one on the economy. But I have yet to see how Obama's plan to increase taxes on the "rich" will help? Come on Liz and ES... Explain it to me. Please. I really want to know what you are thinking. Perhaps you might sway me? But I just gotta know where the logic is.

    Or you can continue to ignore me, which speaks volumes all its own.

    I want a honest, open and non partisan talk about this. This issue effects us ALL.

    Common sense?

    10 bucks says just the idea that we are going to explore for our own oil drops prices... Lets see what happens.

    No kidding,

    Here's a little tidbit on the safety factor of OSD.

    How much money was spent cleaning up the oil spills from hurricanes Gustav and Katrina?

    For years the tree huggers/ocean embracers have steadfastly thought that OSD was a tragedy waiting to happen.

    I think your 10 dollar bet should just about cover the cleanup costs for both hurricanes!
