How Reagan raised taxes and still ended up with a deficit just goes to show ya.....
You remind me of my stepsisiter who said she was glad to pay more taxes, who subsequently had the IRS slap a tax lien on her home.

Do you drive a Ford Escort with a Bush Lied bumper sticker too?

The latest jobs bill from Senate Democrats - a plan to punish firms that ship jobs overseas - failed to clear a key procedural hurdle Tuesday after even some Democrats complained that the measure would hamper the ability of U.S. companies to compete in foreign markets.

That's right, throw the coon card. Try a parachute when you dive out of perfectly good plane.
What you lack is respect for mankind, nothing to do with race... just being different: short, fat, man or woman is not a good reason to look negative on a person... just do your job.

And yes,,, I AM A SOLDIER ALWAYS; I have Served My Country Proud in times of war(Just Cause, Desert Storm, OIF) and in peace. And will continue to do just that, in and out of uniform!!!

My Faith, My Country And My Family In Arms "ALWAYS ON WATCH".

LOL you are a good candidate in serving yourself and thats why we are in the shape,,, that we are in; NO THANKS TO YOU!!!

Soldiers think "Mission First" regardless who stands side by side or even if WE have to stand alone. Maybe you lack that too!!
