Yes, it means your statement required clarification. You're welcome.

I would suggest that it is drewprof's statement that requires some clarification, perhaps then I can answer your request.

Ha, like you're now ass-u me ing that my statement needs clarification If you want facts go ask Cheney why is gas at the pump heading for $4 a gallon stripping the middle class of any chance into venturing onto his world of lala land? Did he get us some bonus points from his last visit to Saudi or just made sure that his transition to "civilian" life will be paved and greased for him and his people to line up their pockets even more? How about that kiss up trip to Israel eh? Prosperity through destabilization at its finest, but for whom?

So back to the point that YOU started. Why is it that YOU feel: "those ragheads live on top of our oil"?
Should we just jump up and take it from them?

Don't call Bush and Cheney 'ragheads'. It's disrespectful.

Don't know but how much did you fill your car for this morning? Did you get a special discount for supporting their slaughter? or at least for pretending to be a "patriot"? Is that Bush/Cheney sticker still on your bumper? Ask them, they know where the profits are going... Just tell them how much you supported them and they let you in on their secrets and stuff, that's the least they can do for you.

OK, other than being the biggest military power [and China might just dispute that with 2.3 Million Troops *], is there ANYTHING at which we are a POSITIVE Number 1?


* People's Liberation Army - Ground



We used to be able to make a list a page or two long.
