Wow, is this guy about the most dull character the democrats could find or what? And you thought Gore was bad. I think this clip from the Daily show was funny.<br><br><br><br><embed src="http://biosci-dhcp19.biosci.arizona.edu/~hunter/test/daily.mp4" width=320 height=240 autoplay="false"><br><br>
It's like somebody combined Dan Quale and Al Gore. Stupid and Dull. I mean, come on. If you're going to really screw up the country, at least be entertaining.<br><br>50 cents added tax? Another fine example of someone who's completely ignorant. Oh, we have unemployment? Well, lets just tax the people who are working? Even more unemployment? More taxes are the answer. <br>I'm sick of it. <br><br>
It always seemed to me (and it could have just been my perception) that when I was paying more taxes that the economy was better- for whatever reason...<br><br>That could have just been under Clinton, but I wouldn't mind paying more if it stimulates growth...<br><br>[color:red]You slap my back, I'll slap yours!</font color=red>
is kerry proposing a 50 cent tax increase during this election or is this something being trumpeted up from his past? i haven't heard anything about this, but i think that would be political suicide if it is current, which i doubt.<br><br>----<br>"even if we get bin Laden or Zawahiri now, it is 2 years 2 late.

No, you're not mistaken, but it was only a short term fix. That's why everything began falling apart near the end of his term. Airlines were circling the drain, stocks were starting their slide downward, etc. But I don't want to start yet another pointless political post, which seems to be the entire point of this forum lately.<br><br>
50 cents a gallon tax.... hmmm... that seems to be A LOT!!! WOW!! NOT 50 cents..... ouch<br><br>US Gas $ when Bush started: $1.25/gal<br>US Gas $ after 3 years of Bush: $2.35/gal + rising<br><br>Yeh, I guess that gives Bush more credit! <br><br>_________________________________________<br>You expect me to sign here or somethin?

Considering you're supposed to be so well versed on the world while we Americans don't see beyond our borders, I'm surprised that you omitted that the gas prices have gone up all over the world, because, you know, that little collection called OPEC plays a tiny part in gas prices, but I'm sure that's Bushs fault too. sheesh. If you're going to splash around in the Bush bashing pool, at least try not to be so obivous about it.<br><br>
I can't believe that I have to defend dubya once again (I'm not a fan really!), but I hate hypocrisy. I was paying more than $1.25/gal in 2001 so that must have been the national average. And for 2004 you chose the highest price you can find. The national average is $1.74/gal last I heard (about a week ago).<br><br>And I was only having a little fun with the gas tax thing. Kerry is not dumb enough to bring that up now, but he did propose that as senator.<br><br>
Call me stupid (ok, I know you all don't need the encouragement ), but I'm pretty convinced that gasoline should be taxed at a higher rate than it is. If people want to get vehicles taht guzzle the gas, they ought to be made to pay for it. It's bad for the environment, bad for the economy, bad for international relations.<br><br>edit: I'd also make the new revenue pay for upgrading the public transportation system.<br><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by yoyo52 on 04/05/04 07:53 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
