    By then it is too late!
    The Supreme court isn't on our side,Acorn was just doing the devils work I guess?
    They push a fake outrage,fake community organization(tea-party)that just can't stand the government,
    Only problem is,It was millionaires,and politicians who went to washington to vent the rage of the people??
    America will have a hard time coming back toward resembling anything great as long as the divisive thinking/argument drives the conversation!for example,if you're going to overlook a persons whole argument because he said two words you don't like,then everything goes off subject and still there is no answers to the problems??

    @T....How true. If there is one politician that does not have his hand where it doesnt belong, let me know. This not a dem. vs rep. or anything about race. This is the path are elected leaders are taking us.

    @Proto....You know this is the nature of the beast. Give them an inch, they take a mile. The sad part is it takes money to fight money. Unfortionatley that is in short supply for most. The voice of one will never be heard. Maybe an organized approach is what we need. The rich get richer and we add more people to the poor.

    • Mmmmm

      Too bad we can't smell a congressional hearing: seems like congress has also stamped "a don't ask and don't tell" card for halliburton. Apparently, they are all in bed with each other...

    Man, I thought we had finally caught and exposed Satan (oops, I mean dick cheney) for the evil man that he is. He sits in power and decides to go to war, using up the lives of our sons and daughters, blows up other countries, then his company gets the contracts to rebuild them. He and his oil budy bush jr, only seem to be interested in countries that have lots of natural resources. HMM, whos doing all the dying here and whos getting rich?

    Poor countries eventually oust the oligarchy and America usually give them shelter and tries to put them back in power everytime??
    They know the American populace is spineless and looking out for themselves only!
    Why should a moderate muslim go against the terrorist of their country when Americans do nothing about their own terrorist!
