To be fair, not many would want to put on the uniform of a cop nowadays.

But no one gets more angry than me when cops overreact and abuse their advantage over a subdued criminal. Or throw women onto the ground after being stopped for a traffic violation because they didn't get out of the car fast enough. Or shooting people who are unarmed.

Those cops should be removed from the police force immediately.

Thank goodness progressive secularists haven't won yet.
The state will take the place of religion just as it has in all communist countries - present and past.
Interesting......

Now you're claiming the Church does currently run the country.....

What happens when the food chain and food web gets interrupted?
Answer
All the animals will die. If the producer in a habitat dies , the herbivores will have nothing to eat and will die .The predators also having nothing to eat will die. If the predator dies, the herbivores will increase in number. But the producer cannot produce enough to feed all herbivores. Thus, they will all die.. This means all animals depend on each other for a complete food chain or food web.
Also, if the food chain is extremely top-heavy, then lots of ordinary people will die... Finally! Your conclusion is correct, in my opinion, except for the single most powerful species that ever roamed the earth looking for deals or someone else's nuts to steal, republicus enannimus. This is the only known specious that can survive by eating and then regurgitating it's own shit over and over.

Doesn't bother me. I'm a party of one. What does bother me is that this administration is rotten to the core and you lap dogs just eat it up. These eight years will go down in history as the most corrupt, dishonest, lying administration to ever run the United States of America.

Well, geez, carol, don't forget all the nice cops who'll let a good looking blonde drive 92 mph in a 55 zone as long as she hitches up her dress so he can see her panties when he pulls her over... boys will be boys... but I agree it's something else for you to worry about.

downplaying the housing bubble because....
Lawrence Lindsay, Bush's first chief economic adviser, said there was little impetus to raise alarms about the proliferation of easy credit that was helping Bush meet housing goals.
"No one wanted to stop that bubble," Lindsay said. "It would have conflicted with the president's own policies."

Did you just say "first CHIEF economic adviser.?" A real adviser? Not a made up one?

God forbid that anyone would cite a campaign adviser while discussing military or economic strategery like Carol did yesterday.

<quoted text> You are dense as a brick. Yes I was. That was the whole point of posting what the president said. What I had been saying for years. Here is what a real president said about fixing healthcare without all the government control.
Another priority in my budget is to keep the vital promises of Medicare and Social Security, and together we will do so. To meet the health care needs of all America's seniors, we double the Medicare budget over the next 10 years. My budget dedicates $238 billion to Medicare next year alone, enough to fund all current programs and to begin a new prescription drug benefit for low-income seniors. No senior in America should have to choose between buying food and buying prescriptions.
To make sure the retirement savings of America's seniors are not diverted into any other program, my budget protects all $2.6 trillion of the Social Security surplus for Social Security and for Social Security alone.
My budget puts a priority on access to health care, without telling Americans what doctor they have to see or what coverage they must choose. Many working Americans do not have health care coverage, so we will help them buy their own insurance with refundable tax credits. And to provide quality care in low-income neighborhoods, over the next 5 years we will double the number of people served at community health care centers. And we will address the concerns of those who have health coverage, yet worry their insurance company doesn't care and won't pay.
Together this Congress and this President will find common ground to make sure doctors make medical decisions and patients get the health care they deserve with a Patients' Bill of Rights.
When it comes to their health, people want to get the medical care they need, not be forced to go to court because they didn't get it. We will ensure access to the courts for those with legitimate claims. But first, let's put in place a strong, independent review so we promote quality health care, not frivolous lawsuits.
My budget also increases funding for medical research, which gives hope to many who struggle with serious disease. Our prayers tonight are with one of your own who is engaged in his own fight against cancer, a fine Representative and a good man, Congressman Joe Moakley. I can think of no more appropriate tribute to Joe than to have the Congress finish the job of doubling the budget for the National Institutes of Health.
So exactly what did Bush do to secure social security surpluses?? By law, surpluses are loaned to the federal government. Are you saying Bush changed that law??

BTW, that drug expansion to seniors was not fully funded at all - in fact it was a long way from being funded.

I always new you were a Bush lover even though you have denied it in the past.

I am so glad you think a "real" President takes this country from a balanced budget to the worst recession in 80 years & lies to get 4000 soldiers killed in a war about oil.

You people are just sick.

the Bush apology tour. will it ever end?

pretty sure history will bear out the fact that Bush was exactly what you try to lay on Obama. consider that the Iraq war was why Obama got elected in the first place, and i think what you haters lie about won't be of much consequence in the future.
