I am Snohomish tribe, family of Elsbeth. I don't need a political party to tell me of the foolish excesses of so many transplanted Europeans to the western Hemisphere. Why so many TPs need to feed their shiny 11MPG, 44 gallon vehicles is a mystery to me. My 20 year old 50MPG car does me well. If all the TPs drove such cars as mine, we would have no fuel crisis. I have said this twice. Your refusal to understand is the way of the TP.
Feed the starving. Then you will see your excesses.
Ho!

marie,
There you go again.
Lies, lies, and more lies.
You just never stop.
I have never known anyone who is so addicted to telling lies, half-truths, and deceptive fabrications as you.
You made one of the most outrageous accusations I have ever heard when you wrote to Rick.
You wrote:
"Republicans condone unnecessary wars and the killing of innocent men, women, and children,"
Let's be clear about something. No political party has an exclusive right on the subject of WAR. And, if they did that right falls to the Democrats.
Who was President during World War II?
Well marie, there were two Presidents in office during that war.
Franklin D. Roosevelt DEMOCRAT
Harry S Truman DEMOCRAT
Who was President during the Korean War?
Harry S Truman DEMOCRAT
Who was President during Viet Nam?
It technically began under Dwight Eisenhower - REPUBLICAN
Grew under John F. Kennedy - DEMOCRAT
Became full scale conflict under Lyndon B. Johnson - DEMOCRAT
It ended under Richard Nixon - REPUBLICAN
So far, your accusation that Republicans condone unnecessary wars, has become another one of your lies.
Now, let's talk about your accusation that Republicans condone the killing of innocent men, women, and children.
I'm trying to remember, now, who was it that dropped that little thing called an, ATOMIC BOMB?
Oh yeah, I remember now. HARRY TRUMAN.- DEMOCRAT.
How many innocent men, women, and children do you think perished then?
You know, looking back on what I just wrote, I would say your Democrats have the advantage over Republicans in the War Dept.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, marie, STOP THE LYING. I KEEP SAYING THIS TO YOU, BUT YOU DO NOT LEARN.
It's not very becoming for you
#1 - I was exaggerating to make a point. I'm sure you are familiar with that phenomenon. Would you like me to give an example of yours here as well? I'd be happy to enlighten these folks on this thread!

#2 - I was not referring to WWII as I don't consider it an unnecessary war. I was referring to the war in Iraq.

You really are a drama queen Tom. And you do go on . and on .... and on ...and on ...and on ... and on ... and on... and on ... and on ..

it's been cybbereal - not much else.

Haven't you guys noticed that women have a memory like an elephant - especially for the things that men say? That's why it was the women who kept the record of the Longhouse meetings for the Iroquois - in their memories, not on pieces of paper. It was the women who could shut down a man in the middle of his speech. And it was the women who chose the Chiefs, as they were the ones who raised them and knew their character. A modern day Iroquois leader told me that their government served as a model for Ben Franklin and others, when they were constructing the US Constitution. But he said one of the problems with our current government was that they left out the women. Nowadays we have more women there, but I think part of the problem is that they try to play by the mens' rules. I'm pretty tired of that. Maybe I'll just leave this game to you boys.
Know part of the reason that Chief Joseph and the Nez Perce were able to evade the US Army for so long? They relied on the women - on their intuition and especially their dreams. If a woman saw in her dream that the Army was near, they would break camp and pick up and leave in the middle of the night. Well, happy trails boys.

If only I thought that were true.:)
The clouds would disappear, the sun would shine brightly, the birds would be singing, the Bee's humming, the rancor would end, and life could be good again.
If only I thought that were true.:)
I would walk with a bounce in my step, a song in my heart, and a smile on my face.
The Royals would play .500 ball, and the Chiefs would be in the Super Bowl.
If only I thought that were true.
But do I? Nah!!
I thought you said I didn't have much impact on you.

I work in a school and I pray there almost every morning I work that things will go well and everyone will be safe. Prayer is a private thing as far as I'm concerned - it doesn't require legislation either way. I suppose this will confuse Tom D. or cause him to call me some more names or make some more accusations or whatever. Carry on boys. Have at it.
Keep on praying, Marie.

Thanks, litesong. I drive a small chevy which gets 30 to 35 mph on the highways. I use fluorescent spiral bulbs in my home. I recycle recyclables. I save my plastic bottles and refill them from my PUR filtered faucets.
Thank you for cutting back! Efficiency is what the World needs & people must tell others to conserve. I don't know why you didn't read my first statement tho, instead of assuming my stance came from an organization. Public Transit is difficult(PT is very difficult here), but I do encourage people to use it if at all possible. Many of the poor have to use PT. My own car with careful feather footing, gets 11+MPG over the EPA highway rating. I've driven other cars to 13MPG over their EPA highway ratings. Recently, I've gotten great MPG in the mountains too. Sounds like you do OK. Increasing traffic is making high MPG driving very tough.

My apologies if I were a little too quick.
Public transportation in this area is present but not feasable for some of us in the better areas.

marie,
There you go again.
You quoted me and then posted some of your typical crap.
You posted this:
Tom D wrote:
"By the way, I bet you can't find one time when I lied."
Then you responded to that challenge from me with:
"What we have here is a gen-you-wine liberaaaaaal.
You and your kind are a danger for America.
If I ruled America, I would line you up in front of a firing squad.
And watch your little weenie butt squirm, while you pee'd your pants.
Then say, "any last words? OH, never mind.....FIRE!!!!"
What makes you so mean-spirited?
Do you like your mother, or pee to bed?
I don't see any lies there. Yes, I did write that.
You CAN say it was an outrageous opinion, or over the top, or the rantings of an insane man, but there are no lie in that response.
Truthfully, I question whether you know the definition of a lie, or do you confuse an opinion with which you don't agree to be a lie?
Actually, I did make one statement that proved to be absolutley true.
I wrote:
"I predict all the lefties in here are going to have a hey-day with this post. LOL.
At least the gay one's will"
AND YOU DID!!!!
by the way, I love that post of mine.
You post 50 lines to Marie's 1 or 2. I doubt anyone is fooled by these protests of yours. I don't see anyone chiming in to support you - I suspect the opposite is true.

You are proud of that post? I see what Marie meant when she said "Just being Tom D. is punishment enough."

Why not offer ideas, please, and stop the partisan bickering!

How can we best use a $700 Billion bailout from taxpayers to actually benefit America? Use it to underwrite a renewable energy boom overseen by the Dept. of Renewable Energy!

Maybe banks that speculate on unsound mortgages should pay pay for their own mistakes? OR

Maybe everyone should take a 25% reduction in the market and tax value of their home to correct the housing bubble? Particularly real estate investment gamblers!

This is going to sound terribly liberal for me, a conservative independent, but before we go forking over billions to companies that have been stupid, there need to be some rules set down. Rule number 1 should be any company that gets a bailout also gets a new CEO and upper management team with the outgoing teams getting the ax with absolutely NO compensation. They've taken enough money for stupid decisions.
