"I'll make a prediction. George Bush, nor any main stream responsible Republican will call Kerry a "moron" a "Nazi," "stupid" or any other name.
Is anyone willing to bet that Kerry or some other main stream responsible Democrats won't call President Bush one of those names?"
I guess its conceivable I knew about this before I made my prediction (I didn't) but to maintain an air of fairness I'll not count this as a vindication of my prediction"When Teresa Heinz-Kerry arrived, she handed me a pin that read in the center: “Asses of Evil” with “Bush”, “Cheney”, “Rumsfeld” and “Ashcroft” surrounding it."
"Oh and Haggis, yes the US does practice sterilization on women in this country. Parents of minor women (in some states - not all allow it) who are mentally retarded can ask the state to sterilize their female children.
” Haggis, missing the point. It does not matter if it is "national policy" or not. The US justice system allows these laws to still be on the books. And a parnet, in many states, can petition the courts to have a child under go this procedure. If the courts let it happen then it may as well be "offical national policy".
“They included women released from prison, the mentally ill, people with learning difficulties, the poor, epileptics, alcoholics and women of "mixed racial quality".
Spending is up but personal savings/investments are at an all time low. The economy is solid if you look at it from the point of a CEO. Worker productivity is way up but that's because one person now does the job of two. And a company is not going to hire more people if their current work force is meeting the demand. The indicators are right but you have to look at the other side of the coin.Originally posted by jmfryar:
We're a nation obsessed with luxury - lives of leisure without paying dues. To blame politicians for the current state is not only inaccurate - it's irresponsible. They are the mouthpieces that we put into office. Just because the general population is not paying attention, doesn't mean that they are any less responsible.
How accurate are the indicators that they use? After all, according to them, spending is up, the economy is solid, but hardly a job has been created. So how much of the information that's being disseminated is really accurate?
