    Well its try. Why doesnt the UN or NATO do something with our out of control government and the genocide they do by not feeding our own people and letting them die or the neglect to our citizens by not providing shelter and they die. If genocide is the killing of people by their own country than why hasnt our anyone done anything to our govt for crimes against humanity.

    All of you oh so smart people do know how our out of control govt works so I shall explain. We elect a group of pathetic losers that are unable to obtain real employement and then we pay them 1000% more than the actual worker makes and then let them tell us how to run our lives like dictators then when things go wrong we blame the oppisite party of dictators.

    We complain about our economy being so bad there is a simple cure to our econimacal problems make gas $1.00 a gallon and the problem will cure itself. If our out control govt can give billions to banks or to bail out car companies or fight losing wars then fix our economy and set gas prices at $1.00.
