So you trust the government? I believe that corporations know that if they don't meet my needs I will spend my $ elsewhere. The government doesn't have that requirement. They take, steal and waste. BTW, I don't believe I said trust a business instead of the government. I said there are fools that trust the government even though they are the largest monopoly there is.

So you trust the government? Naive liberal you are.

You sound like the low information voter that believes everything a politician says.

How does Republicans fighting for loopholes that help send jobs overseas working out for America.
Right whiners think we can trust corporations to do what is best for America. This is how fricken stupid you are. How many near financial collapses, how many Enrons, how many Bernie Madoffs do you need?
You evidently think Corporate America gives a rat's ass about you? My God, they only care about how much short term profit they can make regardless of people or this country.

The Democratic Governors Association vacuumed up $11.6 million in contributions -- mostly from corporations and unions -- during the second half of 2009. For the year, DGA raised $23.1 million, a record.
The contributors included hefty checks from nearly every top lobbying firm in Washington and from such multi-national giants as Exxon Mobil which pitched in $50,000.
...Democrats catering to corporations "to some extent" is an understatement.
Carol,

A rather ugly side to the way your side "debates" is to dance away from the facts you can't answer.

I refer to the arrangement the Bush Administration made with pharmaceutical companies, where reprsentatives of the latter were allowed to participate in DEA evaluations of new drugs produced by the same companies!

This is a clear case of conflict of interest.

But even worse, it shows the extent to which Republicans not only fail in their obligation to be a watchdog over the private sector, but actually allows corporations to co-opt the watchdog function and bring in line with their goals.

We saw this again with MME, which allowed oil companies to actually fill out the government inspection reports of their safety standards. The BP diaster followed.

This underlies the true nature of the Republican Party which is to betray the public trust to corporate profit.

You'll have to be more specific as this doesn't tell me much.

I will simply reiterate the passage from Prouty's "The Secret Team". Prouty states the CIA had operational control of all U.S. military units from 1954 to 1964 until the regular combat troops came in.

The CIA also ran an operation known as OPLAN34 (in "The Pentagon Papers" it is entitled 34A) which made use of unmarked aircraft and ships which attacked the North.

I don't think the Maddox and Turner Joy were part of OPLAN34. More likely they entered an area where OPLAN34 forces had just left, with North Vietnamese patrol boats in pursuit, mistaking the two destroyers as part of the raiding force.

I see that Cway approach is to belittle and discredit anything not flattering to government or liberal interests. When pointed out weaknesses in his argument, he plays the spin game remotely linking some conservative conflicting point.

These are how liberals operate. The belittling and name calling because no one can have a different opinion. I believe in the first amendment and those that try to shut me up mentally challenged and afraid of the truth.

Cway believes the government is the answer. I believe the people are the answer. Government suppresses, people achieve.

What the heck you think built the skimped on levees to start with?

You know how many MILES of "sandbar type land" there is in the US?

(approx 12,383 miles (19,928 km) directly-that's not counting how far some of that extends inland.

Although anyone who would build/buy a place next to a levee system, or any similar type of scenario, should at least common sense enough to realize, the chances being taken in doing such, and have considerations enough that such then becomes a personal issue, between the doers of such and insurance companies, that should honor those who have sense, decency and honesty enough to faithfully contribute to the same.

I could see introducing the Pentagon Papers as good applicable use of resources when discussing Vietnam.

Is that better?

Hope so-cuz that's all you get lol.
