Every election the American people practice mass insanity...they vote for someone in the hopes that things will be different then realize the more things change the more they stay the same. Then they do it again from the beginning. I understand....I did the same thing for 20 years but I am done with it now.

I'm voting a Libertarian and/or Constitution Party ticket and walking out of that booth feeling good for a change. Vote for the lesser of two evils....not anymore. And two years from now when people are crying about the republicans I'll be able to say that I voted...just not for those con men. Just like I do today when people cry about comrade obama and the dems.

Ever since I was 12 years old I have heard every president cry about the annual deficit and the total debt that was going to be passed on to the grandkids. At first I was one of those grandkids and the debt was about 1 trillion....now I'm a step-grandpa and the debt is coming up on 14 trillion and the con men are still talking about the unfairness of passing this debt on to the grandkids. And what used to be done with $5 now takes $20.

People say this election is a referendum on comrade obama. Well in 2 years, no matter what, comrade obama will be a lame duck. Presidents come and go but CONGRESS remains the same. But we the people dont think about this. People need to realize that CONGRESS writes the laws...the president merely says yes or no and is sometimes overridden when he says no.
These congressional con men are the ones that have put this country where it is today and these guys have "served" decades. But they wont give up the power. Rangel is in his 80's I think and under a cloud...just go home Charlie...you've "earned" it but he won't...it's his honor at stake...whatever...I bet he runs in 2012 if he wins in 2010. The guy up in Michigan whose daddy first won the seat in the 1930's same thing...just go home and enjoy your golden years in retirement. And this is from both parties and both houses. Stevens from Alaska didnt leave until he was put on trial and defeated in an election. Voinovich worked his way up from mayor to gov to senator while his buddy DeWine got thrown out of D.C. but now wants to come back into state govt....just catch a ride home with George and go fishing Mike. But they won't...because they know what is wrong and they have the answers...just give them some time. Well they have had 150 years and I say their time is up.

The voters will be out in full force. It is time for us next to make sure that the Secretary of State fix the voting machines, purge the dead from the alive voters. Purge the eligible and the ineligible voters.

Allow the soldiers to vote on time.

One thing about all of you. These soldiers are all volunteers. What do you do when they start staying home from the recruiting stations. You will know what your precious freedoms are when you are drafted. You won't have a choice and your butts will be in the trenches.

Be greatful for the soldiers and let the votes be counted on time. Who knows they might vote democrat.

Have a nice voting day on Tuesday.

AND MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE DEMS SAY THEY DON'T WANT THESE BOYS TO STAY HOME.

The Republicans want to destroy Social Security, lower the minimum wage and reward the big corporations and themselves.

For the last 24 years of climate crisis warnings, the IPCC climate scientists have continued to agree that the overall consequences of Climate Change on the planet are still estimated to be anything from catastrophic and unstoppable warming, to negligible, if any effects, and may include more extreme weather events. Meanwhile on this course of scientific endeavor, the UN had carbon trading to trump 3rd world fresh water relief, starvation rescue and 3rd world education for almost a quarter of a century of attempting to do climate control, as apposed to addressing population control.
Human contributions of CO2 into the atmosphere have dropped over the last several years of world economic downturn, Yet the CO2 levels continue to increase on the planet. The causes? Besides the Powers of the Cosmos, the missing link in understanding climate has always been causation, and the IPCC scientists now claim that the missing link of causation may have been found, Humanity. The public’s confusion is centered around they, themselves actually experiencing this climate crisis. As opposed to learning of reports of the crisis, on mountains, glaciers, jungles and polar caps, and far away from the source of the crisis, humanity. After 24 years of observations and study, the latest scientific evaluation from the IPCC is that extreme weather is now being forced by the influence of human’s CO2 pollution and thus the need for combating Climate Change now more than ever. Now all weather is influenced by human greenhouse emissions.
Dissenting views and opposing views and alternative theories would stop all AGW/ CO2 research, an important part of media’s survivial,CO2 taxes, lifestyle sacrifice and an overall common purpose in the human population of virtually saving the planetary life from extinction. In other words, the gravest emergency for us. Removing the CO2 factor from the environmental equitation leaves us with energy issues, continued pollution management and the real cause humanity’s future problems, birth control.

I say go ahead and give congressional control back to the republicans so that it will be demonstrated, once again, to these ignorant, bigoted hillbillies just how little the conservative party really cares about the needs and freedoms of the common American. This article starts out with one of these clueless, narrow-minded bigots demonstrating her own ignorance and prejudice by claiming that Obama is ruining this country - forgetting all about the fact that all of our economic problems started under the Bush administration, not to mention that Bush got us in two senseless wars and stripped us of our constitutional freedoms and rights to privacy, gave tax breaks to the rich, and then gave away what was left to all of his buddies with the bailout.
None of these racist hillbillies want to remember any of that, do they...
So go ahead: give control back to the corporate shills in the republican party so that maybe these bigoted ignoramuses will finally learn their lesson.

The media, including the Dispatch, has done a deliberately terrible job of explaining to the voters what the problems are and what are potential solutions.

Just look at the Dispatch's opinion page--full of angry, superficial rants by radical conservatives, with no balancing opinions from moderates, progressives, or environmentalists. Hardly the kind of deep thought and analysis we need as we move into a future in which income inequality, declining economies, peak oil, and climate change are all going to need to be addressed.

The Republican solution is real simple: war, military spending, cutting taxes for the wealthy, and letting corporations set policy for themselves. It didn't work under Bush, and it won't work in the future.

Come on, journalists of the Dispatch, get some integrity!

Well, now. There's two parties listed that people didn't get what they wanted. First the Republicans, now the Democrats.
Instead of the party faithful mindlessly following the party line, I'd rather see statesmen working and cooperating toward the good of the country as a whole.
Party time should have been left behind at the fraternity. Acting childish should be left to childrent.

Where do the people razing our forests think the air we breathe comes from? Do they know the forests sustain us?

The primary way in which the Earth generates oxygen for the atmosphere is through photosynthesis. Photosynthesis accounts for 98% of the world's atmospheric oxygen. It is the process plants and trees use to extract energy from the sun. Water and carbon dioxide are taken in by the plants and trees, and sunlight provides energy for converting these substances into sugars and other energy-rich substances that nourish them. Oxygen is a byproduct of photosynthesis, and when the Earth is in balance, enough atmospheric oxygen is produced to replace the oxygen that is used.

All forests have global implications not just on life but on the quality of it. Trees not only improve the quality of the air that species breath by trapping the carbon and other particles produced by pollution, they also determine rainfall and replenish the atmosphere. As more water gets put back in the atmosphere, clouds form and provide another way to block out the sun's heat. Trees are what cool and regulates the earth's climate in conjunction with other such valuable services as preventing erosion, landslides, and making the most infertile soil rich with life. Mother earth has given much responsibility to trees.

How much forest are we losing? Global annual estimates for 1990-95 show a net forest loss of 112,600 square kilometers per year. The world’s rain forests could completely vanish in a hundred years at the current rate of deforestation.

What would our world be like without trees? What will we breathe?

If you read my previous article, "Regulations" you might think that I am against Business. Not at all. I am not unmindful of the benefits I have reaped working for Big Business. But I think most of you will agree that things are out of balance in this country right now.

U.S. executives earn about 400 times the pay of the lowest paid workers in their own companies. In Europe and Asia, the pay of executives is about 10 times that of the lowest paid worker. And, that does not include the generous stock options or severance packages that many top U.S. executives receive that increase the value of their compensation. These compensation packages of American executives have received a lot of media attention during the current economic crisis, especially when corporations with high pay rates for CEOs and other top employees are also shipping jobs abroad, laying off employees or closing plants.

As Harvard law professor Joseph Singer put it, there is "a disconnect between widely shared moral intuitions and our prevalent economic institutions and norms. We can bridge this gap between our values and our institutions through policy and law: the law is the site where [our] values are effectuated and implemented." That includes "corporate laws that balance employee, community, and shareholder interests."

I remember reading about Aaron Feuerstein, the owner of a textile factory in Massachusetts. His factory caught fire and burnt to the ground. At that point, he could have walked away. But, instead, Mr. Feuerstein promised his workers and the community that he would rebuild. And, while he was rebuilding, he continued to pay his employees. Here is a man who was tested and did "what everyone would agree was right, but what few people actually do".

Our workers, the most productive in the world, do not deserve to be abandoned by Big Business in their time of need. It is time to bring the jobs home.

I am tired of the labels Conservative, Liberal, Progressive. We are all Americans, together. We should not tear this country apart for a political agenda.

GOPers will find it is much harder to govern than to sit on the sidelines and talk about governing.

People forget the bad old days of Taft and Bush and the hole they dug us into. Cutting taxes for companies and wealthy does nothing if the middle class can't stimulate demand due to being too far into debt or losing a job.

In 2 years, after months of stalemate and bumbling, 2012 will see a swing back and the angry independents turn on the incompetent Republicans. That's the pattern in midterms.

There are factories in Jackson county that are empty. I promised myself that if they were empty at election time i would vote against the incumbents. Not that I think our new representatives would be any different. As a nation we need to get out of NAFTA and we should force the return of our outsourced jobs. Large corporations,lobbyists and unions own our politicians. The people should demand that this stop.
