So, Homer buys nothing made in China. or just pays more to buy the same products elsewhere?
Unfortunately due to Republican and corporate policies, mostly, there are some things that are no longer manufactured in the U.S. so there is not always an option.

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.

<quoted text>Saddam was getting old (born 1937) he was slowly but surely losing control of Iraq's Shiia and Kurdish communities__the Baath Party was losing influence and his sons (heirs) were fkn morons incapable of controlling the military, Baath Party or managing the nations oil business.
Saddam was a paper tiger, the paper tiger who knowing that it wouldn't end well faced off against the most powerful (by far) military force on the planet.
It was a stupid war__it was ill conceived, poorly managed yet it cost the US trillion$ of dollar$ the respect of many allies and even foes.
A former US President, Vice President and certain appointees cannot travel abroad comfortably, Generals were shamed and on and on.
Saddam was maintaining a firm grip on power by killing all opposition.

Your crap about Bush and Cheney being unable to travel is Soros propaganda.

Pathetic a-hole.

Think of Rove like your Soros.
Maybe it will put things into perspective.
Rove no longer has any influence but he and Soros have always just worked behind the scenes.
Could you have possibly made a stupider comparison?

Hmmm, Hitler, Japan leaders, Germany again
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.

I NOW supplement my family's income working part-time at home as I have done for the past 5 years.
I WILL in the near future supplement my SS income doing another part-time job that will not affect receiving SS and still supplement my family's income.
(I gave up teaching to learn a new career that would allow me to work from home and still raise my daughter, working full-time with a flexible schedule while being there for her 100%.
I'm actually proud of that.)

No Flack, the fact is, you won't admit Bush's incompetency, so you use out of whack arguments like this to try to strengthen his credibility. In your logic, Bush should've blew up the WH because, he was informed of the eventual events, informed of the eventual hijackers & their actions as far as, taking flying lessons & not taking the taking off & landing part. He ordered the CIA & FBI to stand down/terminate the investigation, so in essence, he aided & abetted, harbored & enabled 9/11 to happen. If Afghanistan was guilty, so was Bush, along with Syria, Sudan, Iran, ect... He invaded Afghanistan because Osama was there. Otherwise, we would've been at war with the entire middle east.

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.

Are you black?
You are a boy.
Even though president nobama dribbles a basketball like a girl I will continue to call the president a boy. A boy who has failed to do a man's job. His color is not the point in any ones mind but yours.
I will call you and president nobama boys. Color matters not a wit.

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.

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.
