Thank you TOFU, That was a decent and factual thing! I note you don't respond too me, and I don't relly blame you; I have been a bit out of line with my comments about your party, for you only I am sorry for a lot of things I say, I get carried away? The reality is none of those mangy bastards are on our side!<quoted text> I probably disagree with 90% of John McCain's politics but to infer he wasn't smart because he got shot down in a time of war is past the point of disrespect and a slap in the face to him and all of
these men who flew valiant missions over enemy territory!A total of 3,032 aircraft were lost to hostile action during the Vietnam War (the actual total was considerably higher, as these numbers don't include Army rotary-wing aircraft), which means at least that many pilots were shot down (yes, some were shot down more than once, but they are way more than offset by the many aircraft that had two pilots).
The Air Force lost 1737, the Navy 530, the Marine Corps 463 and the Army lost 302 (fixed wing).
Do some reading once in awhile before you nullify a man's valor and sacrifice for God and Country!
Or you could just say they weren't smart enough to do their job!

Probably a waste of time to repeat what most of us know,but last May the House passed a bill to extend the Bush tax cuts and sent the Bill to the Senate .Harry Reid never took it out of his desk drawer or where ever he keeps them,so we end up with a rush job at the last minute ,caused by the Senate Democrats ,and never any less spending,but more special interests loopholes.
Two things done against common sense by the --no party--- Democrats.No budget for years as required by the rules,so they do not have to live within any budget.They just collect money.

Al Gore lives (or did live at the time of the photos)- in a 29,000 sq.foot two story mansion. Two people, with perhaps maids and butlers?
In the grand scheme of things he could have turned off half the lights in this mansion - including all those lining his driveway, swimming poor with guest houses. All this was lit with lights everywhere in every window. Perhaps he should rethink his own lifestyle before he dictates ours.
Republicans are still laughing.

Hey libs, heres some more of that high quality education you charge students $100,000 per year for. These are the top 8 college degress with the least return on investment, yet the universities crank out thousands of these each year!
And you all say a college education - regardless of what it is in is the answer to all problems.
1. Communications (news reporter / copyrighter)
5. Religious Studies/Theology
7. Fine Arts

If you are still believing that tax breaks for the rich create jobs you are a weak minded fool. If you still believe that producing more oil in the US lowers gas prices you are a sucker.
No proof lower taxes ever created ONE job.
US EXPORTING more oil than anytime since 1949. Drill Baby Drill -- China needs American oil. Suckers !!!!!!!!!!
