You know what. You are right. Screw everyone esle. Bring our troops home. I am sick of hearing about this war in Iraq that is doing nothing but draining us dry. Why bother helping people that won't help themselves and obviously don't want our help.
Funny. While you Republicans act like "our mission from God" is to save those poor fucking Iraqis from themselves, you espouse exactly this philosophy about American children, old people, and others who have fallen on hard times. Why do you hate America so?
We really need to just stay out of everyone else's business and work on growing the global economy. Clearly money is the driving power in the world.
Fuck the global economy. Bad times are a coming, and we will find out exactly how stupid and short sighted "outsourcing" was when we find we don't have the skills necessary to actually build the things we need to stay on top. The global economy is fine with me only when it serves America's interests. When it competes with America's interests is should be bent over and ass fucked for long periods of time.
We should stop spending all this money globally and start spending it at home on things like cheaper education and energy research.
I am not with you on "cheaper education." I would like better education, like maybe the "premium" kind for our kids. I think we have a pretty cheap kind right now, you know, the kind that doesn't teach jack shit to anyone. And energy research to get us off the mideast dope is actually a good idea.
After watching Palin on TV tonite I am convinced that she has no backbone and she is utterly clueless on the global scheme of things. She will simply march on in the name of the father and follow in the GOP footsteps set before.
I would have to agree with this sentiment, even if your entire post is facetious, as Ms. Palin is busy being brainwashed by the GOP. There may have been a time when she was "her own woman" but that time is now long gone. You will see her back away from her church and the support she earned from Alaskans for playing Washington, DC for the corrupt source of funds that it is to benefit those Alaskans. In short order the aerial hunting will be a forbidden subject, as will her other peculiarities that made her Sarah Palin, Govenor of Alaska by way of Mayor of Wasilla. She is a tool. About a 7mm combination wrench as I see her now.
Hopefully if Obama gets in office the world will start to think that the US has wisened up and decide we aren't the world's police force. Everything always turns into a pissing contest with us. You poked us in the eye now we will kill your whole family. What a waste of resources and human life.
No, I think you mistake many of us, as well as Obama. You poke us in the eye when Obama is President and America will punch your lights out. Not some guy down the road a few thousand miles. A few of those lessons will go a long way to restoring America's image in the world as being competent. And, for the rest of the conflicts we will face, before anyone does any eye poking, America will be on the correct side of conflicts, which will also be something the rest of the world will note and breath a big sigh of relief. The America that earned her place in the world will be back, seeking to earn respect instead of beating fear into people. An America that leads and that others follow, confident in our leadership. Instead of the America that herded weaker nations like cattle with prods.
I don't believe in global warming but I do believe in the fact that our resources of oil are limited and we need to do something soon or we could potentially see a Mad Max type future.
You have made it clear you believe things for what amount to random reasons - such as faith. Faith is great for spiritual circumstances. Faith has no place alongside the Scientific Method when trying to understand nature. So the fact that you say you "don't believe in global warming" is about as valueless from a scientific perspective on global warming as saying you don't believe in the teachings of the Koran. It is really a kind of personal shortcoming that might be better left unsaid.
