<quoted text>Well, who says that we still have a Democracy? Bush and Cheney thumbed their nose at the Constitution. We are spied on, illegally seized and held, tortured. We could always continue Corporate well fare. Did you see those latest CEO salaries and benefits on Maui? Large number of workers laid off at that company. That is happening all over America. Or American jobs could continue to be out sourced to the Phillipines such as Hawaiian Air. Call tech support for MSN and end up in India or South America. Really Patriotic these companies,huh? Tax those oil companies. About time. The oil profits at the expense of so many human beings deaths Iraq, American, etc. are obscene. How about those Bush tax cuts for the rich..big raise in Billionairs. Didn't help me. How about you? Universal Health Care is essential for America's citizens. Insurance companies and drug companies should not be controlling our right to affordable health care.
You half wit ignoramus: we have NEVER had a "democracy"?
Here's a clue: What is the SIXTEENTH word in the Pledge of Allegiance?
You HAVE heard of the Pledge of Allegiance, haven't you?
How about the U.S. Constitution? It's a thin book. Try reading it sometime; you might learn something.
One of the things you have clearly NOT figured out however comes through loud in clear in your idiotic notion " Tax those oil companies."
Corporations do not PAY taxes -- the COLLECT taxes.
If nincompoops like you succeed in efforts to pass a "windfall profit" tax on the oil companies hypocrites like YOU depend on to fill up the tank, just who do you think will pay for those new taxes when YOU pull up to the pump, eh?
All of the goodies you think you are entitled to at government expense will be inefficiently provided by credulous saps like you by more paycheck with holding ....of course this assumes you actually are capable of EARNING a paycheck and are not merely a no load free loader living at the expense of others. And from the silly things you have to say, that may not be such a red hot assumption.
