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.

"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."

So, Homer buys nothing made in China. or just pays more to buy the same products elsewhere?
Didn't Romney want to ease the tax burden on manufacturers to bring back products made overseas and employee more Americans?

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!

Most thought that the economy would remain in shtter for a decade or more__within five years time the US economy is churnin and burnin like never before and even the housing-construction industries are beginning to make a comeback well ahead of predictions.
At the same time there have been large reductions in government spending and "No New Wars."
You're blinded by an adopted ideology that you can't comprehend.
BTW__what's going to happen when it's learned that many of these newly formed 501 (c) organizations have been derelict towards their federal tax obligations?
Well, may I first commend you for getting through an entire post without insulting me?

However, this should make you and most liberals happy.

Yeah Flack__me to!

Shrub has indeed traveled to Africa, twice maybe three times since leaving office. Not all of Africa mind you but a specific place in Zambia and maybe once to a different African nation as a follow up to his involvement with AID's and other diseases that plague parts of that continent.

Let me know when he starts cruising around Europe eh?

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.
Union militancy and environmental regulations are the primary drivers against manufacturing in the US.

the dollar is worth so little under the O'bama administration policies-the reason the gas prices are so high also. So you go ahead and tout his policies.

As the U.S. dollar continues to weaken, the Chinese renminbi, or yuan, has been appreciating at a 4% annual clip. Many believe this will accelerate in the near future. Continued depreciation of the dollar will further bolster U.S. manufacturing and exports.

Why does O'bama want to continue depreciation of the dollar? because it steals money from people who have saved all their lives that's why.
