Yah, Topix, what's with this cranky system? How is it we can use paragraphs and punctuation yet end up with such a garbled ugly mess. And, is it too difficult to give us preview? I know, beggars can't be choosers, but for those of us making an effort to post something of value, well, we're not exactly getting paid for it...

Heck, lets try this another way (I doubt anyone really cares...)

"WITH UN TROOPS OVER SEEING DAILY GOVERNMENT" (In Iraq)... are you sure you mean "troops?" I doubt those fanatics will tolerate anyone but themselves running anything. And what government?

"Like to see SOCAIL Security increase to all Seniors..." --- sounds good, guess I'm waiting to see National Healthcare for all US citizens ... including Seniors.

"(5)Give are MILITARY PAY INCREASES AS WELL AS POLICE,FIREFIGHTERS AFTER 911" --- Shouldn't that be "Our Military?" - some around here are sticklers for accuracy... And from what I see of the pay and benefits for our police & firefighters, we can hardly afford to hire any more because of it... And didn't the Military just get a raise; and remember, they're all "volunteers."

"(6) AS PRESIDENT I WILL WORK WITH THE BORDERS OF OTHER COUNTRIES WITH IMMIGRATION BORDER PACTS AND HELP OTHER COUNTRIES WITH STOPPING DRUG IMPORTS TO THE UNITED STATES" ---(are you yelling at us?) First off, do you "believe" in borders? Some don't. Actually, it appears that most "other countries" are helping themselves at our expense; I don't envision any of them willingly working with 'you,' or us.(man, there's 15 of these!)

Here it is: "...ALSO I THINK THERE SHOULD BE A UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE THAT EVERY AMERICAN CAN AFFORD" --- We'd better be able to afford it, we'd be the ones paying for it! How do you plan to tackle the current entrenched so-called Healthcare system? They sure tookout Hillary, in fact, how do you plan to tackle 'her?'

"(8)EDUCATION IS ONE OF MY MAJOR PROGRAMS I LIKE TO SEE IMPROVED THRU THIS GREAT NATION. I LIKE TO SEE EVERY CHILD PASS WITH THEY 3R'S AMD HAVE TESTING EVERY 3RD GRADES TO SEE THERE LEVEL THRU HIGH SCHOOL ALSO I THINK THERE SHOULD BE MORE GRANTS OPEN TO STUDENTS TO GO TO COLLEGE EVERY CHILD DESERVES TO GO TO COLLEGE AND LEARN TO HIS OR HER DESIRES" --- Watch it... there are some dudes around here just itchin to get after your grammar... But I'm not one of them! Let's see, I'm afraid they're gonna have to do a lot better than their 3R's. We're up against worldwide trends of nonstop-education. Education in this nation's been an ignored luxury for decades.. If we continue to (attempt) to educate every American child to the level of their competition, their parents and community are going to have to value education a lot more than they currently value sports. Testing wastes time, it's strictly a tool to pit school against school while punishing teachers in the process. The students hate, and are further turned off the educational experience because of it. Community Colleges were 'designed' to serve the students you're likely speaking of... They're overused and underfunded but expensive. I envision there being a glut of college educated in this nation (if there’s not already?), just how many attorneys can one neighborhood support?

Nope, that didn't work, same garbled crap. PS, I'm not running on beer here...

If you go to 'his' site, you'll know what I had to work with... anybody understand this..? Just when I thought I had it figured out?
