Due to lack of time and patience, I have only read about 10% of posts on
this latest political rounder, but I have to respond to this..
James, I totally agree. (I never thought I would say that to James of
all people, but I absolutely, positively, 100% agree)
I'm not a Bush fan, but fair is fair. When does Congress take their
share of responsibility for this "lie" to the American public?
The bourse, as well as a having a strategic location/base for future
conflict(with Iran,Russia(please start reading up on the Georgia/Russia
conflict), or China)-those were the reasons we invaded Iraq. Taking out
Hussein was a plus as well as he had already shown a willingness and
ability to use weapons of mass destruction and of course he was an
environmental criminal, too.
It's funny to me that people think of Bush as an idiot(which he is), yet
they think he is capable of all of this deception..remember that this is
a man who couldn't even keep a straight face in a classroom of kids on
In this world, there are those with power whose names would never be
associated with the presidency or with politicians in general. These
guys are the grand puppetmasters. I think there were huge financial and
strategic reasons for our invasion of Iraq. They control not only the
presidency, but public opinion and Congress as well through control of
the media and the economies of the world. Congress is just as
susceptible to being manipulated as the president or the public is.
The public is in denial about "the long emergency". Most folks can't
tell you where Afghanistan is or what is going on in the Darfur. Most
people who drive SUVs can't even calculate their own MPG or be able to
tell you how far in miles they commute or taxi their kids everyday. I'd
bet, too, that most Obama supporters couldn't point out Indonesia let
alone Jakarta on a map(I know you guys on the list can, but you guys
aren't representative of the sheeple)and probably don't even realize
that it is another country, let alone has the largest Muslim population
in the world.
On the CNN page there is a poll...60% of folks would rather live in the
country than the city..I don't believe it..what they want is the
romanticized view of the country...again, it's the sway of the media and
not reality that drives the masses..it's only when someone finally
gets the reality that they realize they have been duped..think back on
how sick of scandal the people were when Clinton was
president...everyone was pro-Republican then, almost as strong as folks
are pro-Democrat now. People want to live in the country right up
until they find that first snake in the house...lol...
Slightly off on a tangent, here's a good story...
