So given that yes I will pay more for Chinese made crap sold for a higher price elsewhere it if will help keep the local shops in business which in turn keeps the community more vibrant and helps hold the very fabric of our nation together.
On a side note Homer will always seek out products made in the U.S. even if they cost more.
So, Homer will buy a US-nameplate car even if it is crap compared to other options?

I didn't have any issue with going in to Afghanistan to get Bin Laden and blowing up terrorist camps along the way. But don't give me this crap that Afghanistan attacked us, that's rewriting history.

<quoted text>Both Germany and Japan declared war on us first, both were actual threats to the entire world unlike Iraq and the fcking Afghan gov't.
Hitler committed suicide and most of the German govt was destroyed by the Russians. As for Japan, the emperor of Japan was in fact still the emperor up until he died in 1989, 44 years after WWII ended.
The US removed and executed the leadership of both countries and forced the Emperor of Japan to give up all power.

I dunno, I may buy a foreign car if it's built in Tennessee or South Carolina. Homer does recongize we live in a global economy. I just like to bust Flack's chops as he buys most of his crap from his Communist Chinese overlords.

I stay away from Walmart because I have seen the devastation first hand what they do to a community, I'm not keen on malls either.

You rightwingers pine for the 1950's yet promote the very things that have destroyed that era and then bitch about it.

To further respond, any US administration that would allow any foreign government to detain and/or prosecute any former US government official not subject to any charges in the US should be removed in disgrace.
Any such action by a foreign government should be met with immediate action, including military force as necessary.
Yeah Galt__pay very close attention here K?

None of those fks is traveling overseas (Cayman Islands don't count) so we'll never know will we?

Carter, Clinton and even Bush I jetset around the globe__while Shrub paints his feet and Cheney hangs out at Republican affairs.
I haven't kept up with Rummy, Wolfowitz and the NeoCons. Have You?

See, common ground. I've always said you were the smarter of the dumb rightwingers. Given a chance you could become a real conservative and maybe even learn to respect other's opinions.

"They (Bush and Cheney) have global warrant's on them for war crimes, if they weren't guilty of the crimes and charges they are wanted for, "why are they scared to leave the USA". Anyone innocent wouldn't be scared to face the global judges at the Hague to clear there names.

Just like when Bin Laden was caught, it made all US Americans dance and cheer. Once Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Yoo, Rice, Wolfowitz are taken to the Hague, the whole (bleeping) planet will party."

Didn't Romney want to ease the tax burden on manufacturers to bring back products made overseas and employee more Americans?

Some people just like to complain - defending the problem makers and criticizing the problem solvers.

I believe they love him in Africa -

Popular in Africa: Bush has given more aid than any other US president

When President Bush came to power in 2001, the US spent $1.4bn a year on humanitarian and development aid in Africa. By 2006, the figure had quadrupled to $5.6bn a year. And it is likely to get bigger. The centrepiece of Mr Bush's aid to Africa is the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (Pepfar), a five-year,$15bn Aids prevention and treatment programme launched in 2003. His most recent budget proposes doubling the funding to $30bn over the next five years.

Ah the Bush big spender legacy.

Thanks for the reminder Flack.

You do understand what you are talking is complete bullshit! Looking from the outside in, you're saying (hypothetically speaking), Afghanistan has the right to invade America because, the acts of a group foreigners that now reside America warrants the invasion? There are terrorist in every country & the KKK has a govt if the Taliban has one. They may have community organizers, but no one can govern land they do not own. Otherwise, the country Afghanistan would be the country Taliban!

It was an Allied effort against two countries who wanted world domination. Comparing WWII Germany and Japan with Iraq and Afghanistan is the most assine thing I have ever heard.
