Golly, now there's a unbiased, objective news source: DPC.


Not saying there hasn't been war profiteering. Those two things have gone hand-in-hand since recorded history. I'm in favor of prosecuting suspects. But only a fool or fanatic gets relies on a political party for his news source.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.

Everyone is biased dude including yourself
Oh, yeah and it's ok to have some war profiteering because everyone did it in the past, yes Bot, you're right
The suspects are clearly there, are you going to deny it because they are the ones you would hate to see go down? Maybe if it was the American Association of Sandal Wearing Dudes with Socks (like myself) you would be a lot happier wouldn't you?

Hey, That's FTL's company you're talking 'bout there, jack. better watcherself or you'll start gettin' Nazi'd by the expert.

Uh, you do know the difference between a political allegation and a court conviction, right?

Concerning, profiteering -- read my post again. Either your reading ability is impaired for some reason or your cognitive skills are deficient.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.
