When did I EVER say I like George Bush?
Although I did meet him...


I have nothing against Bush as a person. He's a nice guy and a great father. A lousy president and not very bright but pleasant none the less. Reminds me a little bit of Gomer Pyle.

Teacher...

What do you think of this?

"More schools opening Advanced Placement courses to all students"

"Some students may not be adequately prepared for the rigorous classes and high achievers may be shut out. But supporters see equal access as an educational right."

"Washington Mutual has formed a strategic alliance with the Johnson Development Corporation, Beverly Hills, California, headed by former basketball star Earvin "Magic" Johnson. The development corporation, which was founded in 1993, is dedicated to attracting businesses such as supermarkets and movie theaters back to urban areas. The aim is to revitalize communities and provide jobs."

If he can get blacks to stop raping and robbing those supermarkets and theater/theater-goers then I will truly call him Magic.

Otherwise, f*ckoff and keep your hands out of my pockets, dood.

It starts with teaching children by example.

Note: obesity is a national epidemic for both adults and children.

So much for teaching our children.

The Obama administration has decided to release more than $1.6 billion in aid to Pakistan, a senior administration official said.
That's great!! It means things have improved enough to allow the money to flow again. The Pakistani government has gotten over their outrage over the bin Laden raid. Finally!

We have to resume aid if we are going to withdraw out troops from Afghanistan and leave Pakistan to fight terrorism on their own.

so ia corporation is found guilty of a crime, with deliberate intent, what prison does that entity serve time in??
oh wait, the officers of said corporation do the time, like Ken Lay did for ENRON
"Most" people *get* that corporate heads tend to settle and pay out instead of serving time for any crimes committed, whether deliberate intent is proven, or not. Everybody knows that the wealthy rarely ever get the punishment they deserve for their crimes.

I met Clinton in 97. Very personable, approachable. A little silly but someone you could go shoot hoops with and talk about normal things. Not outwardly focused on the mission though...

I met Bush II in 07 and he was very quiet and business only. He came across as being Extremely humble though. Mission focused. stuffy...

Politics, in eyesight of the media, is sometimes just an act...
is what one old Congressman once told me...

Cruz doesn't have to worry about motivating conservative voters, he's got the full backing of theKoch brothers. He only has to answer to them, and so far he's doing a fine job.

You continue to prove your illiterate. The Roman Empire fell because the Senators of the day were selfish and self-absorbed, determined to hoard the huge wealth of the empire. The common people lost all power and were lucky if they had enough to eat.
That is where we are headed IF we allow Republicans to take control. The truly informed among us are doing everything possible to see that doesn't happen. Obama is stopping the flow of money to those who would take us down (CEO's and the well connected) and reforming the bloated financial system that has feathered their purses.
Stand firm Obama!!!
The truly informed among us? LOL! Truly informed? What does that mean? Those who swallow everything the Obama administration feeds them?

In other words you've actually bought into the left's lies about republicans "wanting dirty air and water, starving the elderly and children, and letting those without health insurance die in the streets? Is that your definition of "truly informed"?

Just admit it - you want a government which will take as much as they possibly can from those who have and give it to those who have not.

your assumption that people who have never bothered to have a family doctor and have always relied on emergency rooms for routine problems will suddenly change their behavior because they have insurance is completely illogical...
What is completely illogical is your statement. The reason people don't have a family doctor is precisely because they don't have insurance and can't afford to see a doctor on a regular basis. Providing them with insurance, they will be able to see a doctor, take advantage of preventative medicine, quit relying on the emergency room for care after their condition has worsened and reduce medical costs across the board.

Serious dude, using the moniker of John Galt is an oxymoron in your case

But then again, I'm assuming you know who John Galt is and where he's at. I very much doubt you are that well versed in literature

Because I kinda have a connection with History...

So, what did you get?

On the Stimulus...
Nov of 2008

"If you add up just the funds that have already been committed, you get a figure, according to Jim Bianco of Bianco Research, that is larger in today’s dollars than the costs of the Marshall Plan, the Louisiana Purchase, the New Deal, the Korean War, Vietnam and the S.&L. crisis combined."

I'm guessing he doesn't notice the hypocrisy in claiming to value his privacy and actually writing an autobiography about himself simply to make money off being Barack's brother?
Anybody who appreciates how short life is won't waste any of their precious time or money on his "story".
The entire family is a tribe of confused exploiters.

Righties are always counting on any and ever thing bad to happen, with little to no respet for fellow Americans their addiction to power and greed is overwhelming. Just reading the sheep on here which never changes is proof of that. Their real problem with AHC is that it will be successful. Plain and simple.
Yep, it's worked in every other country for the past 40 yrs but somehow must fail in the USA. Those tea baggers need to learn to walk forward instead backwards all the time, at least they could see where they are going if nothing else.
