Crap, looks like one of my posts actually made it in while Sprint was taking a dump on me. Oh well, same post twice with just a little difference in it.

Ol' Jebthro ain't it either. My dad use to say (he might have ripped it off) "the only thing that should disqualify someone from elected office is the desire to be elected." I agree. WE figured it ought to be done by lottery. You lose? Too bad, you're in charge now.

OTOH I could fix it with a few simple rules.

Job one, nuke K street & outlaw lobbying. Salaries for elected officials are just enough to provide room and board. That way they've got to get back in the real world once their term is over.

No campaign money raising. No negative ads. That would cut corporate influence off at the tap. All candidates compete in debate format. The fee for an FCC license includes providing air time for debates. If one of 'em utters a negative word about another a gert big ol wrassler runs out and squeezes 'em till their nuts or breasts rupture. Just a good ol' debate telling us what they'll do, not what is wrong with the other guy. Then we go to the polls and vote.

Two term limit on all elected offices at the federal level. If you make it to a second term a special "election" occurs at the end of your second term. If you "lose" that one you get drawn and quartered.

How else is someone supposed to interpret the comment, "They're all "gimme gimme gimme". Gimme gay marriage. Gimme HIV cure. Gimme Obama plan. Gimme Obama care. Gimme gimme."?
"Gimme gay marriage..." "Gimme HIV cure..."
Tsk...
And I was just beginning to think you were real deal. Such a disappointment.
That's OK. You disappointed me a long time ago.

You are all gimme gimme. I support SSM. Those too statements are not mutually exclusive. Calm down power ranger.

Buddy, you don't seriously believe that they're gonna let someone in, who'll want to fix what's wrong, do you? Look at Perot. Look at Ron Paul. How close did either of them get?
Nope, you and I don't matter a bit. You gotta be in the club.

Would you also include the defense department, which siphons off over $500 billion dollars each year? And we know that the majority of this spending is for corporations saying "it's all about me" and "what can I have next".
We spend more on defense than (something like) the next 15 closest spenders combined.
The Iraq war has cost over $1.4 Trillion. And exactly what did it do? It is less stable and more of a training ground for al Qaeda than ever before.
W. Bush was pissed at Saddam because he threatened to kill his daddy, H. W. Bush. He used the events of 9/11 to whip the world into a frenzy and go after Hussein. There's no doubt that Saddam Hussein was a bastard. But he was never a threat to us. The Bush Whitehouse lied about there being WMDs.
At least if Obama spends money on social programs REAL Americans can benefit.
I don't care why. We needed to kick someone's ass after the towers went down. Iraq was as good a place as anywhere else. Better. It destabilized the middle East. Obama is finishing the job. Now we have a hornets nest of hate for generations to come. But at least they're killing each other.

I still don't understand why they didn't go after the little ratfaced stain in Iran.

As an aside, that gaytard Kuh-Daffy went out the hard way, didn't she?

It was a three dollar bill. Had that unmistakeable look.

Yeah, guess we should all just forget about all of that and try and be friends with all them huh? Lay down all of our arms, let THEM call the shots for a while. Hey, at least they wouldn't put up with your self pleasuring persuits of rear smacking fun. Better yet, you go live there.

And, Hitler without Jews would have made us remain an isolationist country, and therefore, with no Emergency Wartime powers to assume (and refuse to relinquish later) we'd not be world superbully...I mean superpower. Imagine where we might be and what we might have accomplished without the interference, subversions and infiltrations that have corrupted America.... WWII was the beginning of our downfall...
