Let's review once again...<br><br>The most pressing issues in American's lives today are health care, how to get out of Iraq, gas prices, and the economy.<br><br>...and the Senate just voted to make English our national language.<br><br>...and they're thinking about bringing back debate on gay marriage.<br><br>This has to be pretty damn near the nadir of our plutocracy.<br><br>-- Charlie Alpha Roger Yankee Whiskey
Are we going to have a pop quiz over this later ? <br><br><br>well more power to them... the more they fsck up - hopefully the faster they can join the unemployment line !! (at least part of them)<br><br>People are getting fed up, but I don't think they're as POed as they should be. Maybe 4-5 more months of record gas prices and record oil company profits will get them there. <br><br>on another note- Iraq has gotten nastier again... 2.7 deaths / day last month and this month is averaging >3. ..we're about 45 from 2500 ! <br><br>... and still no Govt ! ... even if/when they do step up, how long will that last ??<br><br>David (OFI)<br>
I think your starting premise is false.....<br><br>The most pressing issues in American lives today are: Do I have a roof over my head, Is there food on the table, Can I keep myself warm, and do I have a job to provide for these things.<br><br>A large portion of people always vote the same way in an election - hence the incumbent tends to keep his seat.<br><br>A large percentage of the people think congress/senate are broken.<br><br>A large percentage of the people think it's not their representative that's a problem (so they'll keep voting for them).<br><br>The only way most people show displeasure with their party line is to not show up at the next election.<br><br>The one thing I'm not sure about is whether most voters connect George Bush to their representative if they're a republican!<br><br><br>- This is gonna get pretty interesting. <br>- Define "interesting". <br>- Oh, God, oh, God, we're all gonna die..
_________________________ I used to think it was terrible that life was unfair. Then I thought what if life were fair and all of the terrible things that happen came because we really deserved them? Now I take comfort in the general unfairness and hostility of the universe.
Yes, that is for most people.<br>For me, I'm trying to figure out how to travel back in time 30 years. <br><br>Most if not all of our representatives in the House and Senate are millionaires.<br>Why do we think they can relate to us? <br>Of course there are probably a couple millionaires on this web site like steveg for example.<br><br>
Let's not forget that just today the Corps of Engineers reports that oil production has peaked and supplies will be gone in 41 years.<br><br>. . . . . Here's lookin' at [color:red]you</font color=red> kid.
