economic stimulus package
needs to put people back to work not just hand out money to banks and car
companies that cut jobs and overpay their executives. The rest
of the money should be helping the home owners with lower interest
rates, fix roads, improve the educational system (from the top
down,) build and distribute solar cells and other energy
saving businesses and create integrated circuitry right here in
America, not like Intel! It's a shame to think the world has gone Hi-Tech
while American has been setting on its hands watch millions of
people's jobs get unplugged.
If the economy isn't any better in
two more years, why not get ride of the remaining Republicans so
America can get back on its feet. By the way, 'Buy American'
sounds great, but let's start with proving we can build quality
goods with qualified people!
President Barack Obama!
I'm glad Bush is finally out
of office, but everyone can stop accusing him of everything that's
gone wrong, after all the congress seemed to agree with everything
he has done otherwise they should have stopped him.
set the facts straight shall we, banks and mortgage companies are
not in trouble because of home owners! Their demise
is almost solely a result of greed and financial
mismanagement. Each time a potential home owner buys a home,
the mortgage holder jacks the interest rate as high as possible so
they can collect on extra interest rates and closing fees
(bonuses.) You and I never get the best interest rates or a
real break in closing costs/fees, and if you have a history of slow
payments, you'll be making the mortgage companies extra money by
paying higher interest rate and higher closing cost (called risk,)
but should be called rip off the little guy, because if the leaner
was fair, why would they tack on interest along with higher payments
to a person that has already shown they are struggling? Does
higher interest rates make the buy a better customer? Of
course not. This excessive capitalism technique,
adding as much as possible to the sale has finally caught up to
lenders and now all the politicians are on board to make sure their
largest contributors and lobbyist (working for the bank and mortgage
companies) get help by asking the little guy to bail them out. Try to get a loan when you have shown you can't
manage your money, it's nearly impossible and so why are we bailing
out large corporations since they have proven they can't manage
stimulus package makes very little sense. Instead
of pumping in a little to late, why not put a few of the unemployed
back to work building roads, bridges etc? After all, they'll
be proud they are working while buying things which just adds to our
tax base. "The more you make, the more you'll
spend!" And this generates more and more tax which goes
right back to the government and repays the money spent on the new
that has taken economics should know a capitalistic country depends
on spending, not cutting government cost. After
all, you can't can't generate tax if there's no money being spent.
Postal Service USPS has a new phone number: 1.800.275.8777
USPS will no longer accept your phone calls, all local United Post
Office phone numbers are now invalid. The US Post Office has
consolidated their phone services to just one automated phone
number: 1.800.275.8777. Now you can call their machine,
and press more and more numbers without the aid of a real
human. Isn't it nice to know your time is worth nothing to the
United Post Office?
is an idea which can help the US economy while putting people back
Let me start by saying, over 70% of businesses listed on the
Stock Exchange depends on retail sales, and we all know what the
average American does when they receive their paycheck, SPEND!
then initiate a short term economic stimulus package
why not launch a national transportation improvement package along
with green full alternatives which will provide jobs, create better transportation
and a cleaner environment with less dependency on oil.
The immediate benefits would also include, new tax revenues (the
average worker in the US only brings home 72% of their gross (before
taxes) pay and
the rest is tax, which would go right back to the government,) and
everything the worker spends their earnings on is of course also
taxed which again brings in more money to the government and cities and States will also benefit from their respective tax
revenue. And what do you think the cities and States will
do with their money, that's right; SPEND IT, which will generate
more jobs and tax revenue from those that get paid! From here,
the cycle just keeps going on.
thing that has bothered me for years; why would the government stop
spending? They should be told to stop spending overseas, not
in the US because through taxation they'll get 100% of their money
back in just a few years, while creating new jobs and wealth in
the US economy is bad, like it is now (July 15, 2008,) you know who
the government is going to ask to make sacrifices. You!
Primaries are finally
over so the Democrats can finally go back to pretending they like
each other again.
If I've learned anything from the
Primaries, it must be one of the following is true: Either
they really do hate each other and they don't really believe the
others really have anything sensible to offer, or their simply
liars. If they're liars than I don't want them in
office. If they really do hate each other then I don't want
any of them in office.

History lessons that all of us should
National news in America needs to get back on track and start reporting real news instead of offering news according to what coincides with their personal agenda. Even the Presidential runoffs are reported by giving specific politician more air time than others and when it comes to Iraq, almost all the news is anti Bush and anti military.
So who really wins when it comes to how national news is reported in America?
Hint; it's not you! Click
- - - - - -
Between the national news and our
politicians, I'm not sure which one really does a better job of
buffaloing their listeners. Each refer to their listeners as
being smart enough to determine what's right and what's wrong like
we each have some kind of magic crystal ball and each also
refer to us as "the American people" like we all
think exactly alike and wouldn't question anything they have to say
as long as they refer to us as "the American people."
I'm personally insulted when I
listed to the national news about Presidential debates and whom they
think did the best job especially when they give one candidate 30
minutes worth of air time and the new guys 3. And when they
talk about President Bush's policies, they are always against
whatever he offers. And no, I don't personally like the guy
either, but I do believe national news should be reported as news,
not their slant on things and besides; the national news decision
makers are no more qualified than the President, are they?
Why is it that every President
since President Kennedy has expressed their concern about the
slanted viewpoints our national news? In my opinion it's
because we should be concerned. No one can get anywhere
in politics unless you have the news behind you, and to me;
that's simply not the news, that a monopoly on communications.

Instead of reflecting our love for our country, we get photos
of flag burning incidents at Abu Ghraib and people throwing
snowballs at the presidential motorcades.
Tragically, the lack of accentuating the positive in Iraq
serves two purposes:
It is intended to undermine the world's perception of the
United States thus minimizing consequent support, and it is intended
to discourage American citizens .

everyone hates President Bush. On NPR today President Bush was

leader bits the dust. Will President Bush be the last arrogant

power-hungry leaders? 08/27/2007
Bush's aids are jumping ship why doesn't he? This is just
another example of the lack of ethics Bush's aids really have for their
country. They can't even stay to the end, they have no country
loyalty and that's probably part of the reason why this country is so
messed up. With no ethics, how could they run a country?
It's a shame that we
(USA) have a President like George Bush, while he seems to have great communication skills when talking with the general public, he has little or none when he talks with the rest of the world. His advisors project Mr. Bush as the "know-it-all, answer-it-all, my-way" President.
Personally he comes across as a genuinely nice guy with a major ego problem.
Last week I was invited to meet with President Bush, to which I immediate replied "no thanks." When I look back at my response; it's a shame I felt/feel this way about my own President. President Bush, on the outside, seems to really care about others no matter what country they come from or live in, however his persistence coupled with his inability to be flexible causes more problems and issues then if he and his cronies would just keep quiet and let other countries take over the actual communication side of things.
So to the rest of the world, I'm sorry about President Bush, we're really not as bad of a country as he projects.
boycott?! It has been suggested that if the general public were to participate in a boycott of all Exxon-Mobile supplied gas stations it would have little or no effect on the price of gas. I fail to understand how a significant decrease in their sales volume would fail to get their attention. The public would need to know all the names under which their product is sold. I would willing play my part in such an action, would you? Someone should provide a state by state list of all retail points of sale for gasoline produced by Exxon-Mobile.

of big business doing what it does best; selling out the little
Where does your
future stand with the corporation you work for?
Fuel prices in
America are just another example of why big business should not be allowed
to self regulate and monitor itself. For the little guys
government makes rules, regulations and laws backed by costly legal
expenses and often jail time. But for big business the government
seems to think self regulations and the honor system works best. So
why would you think a petroleum company would lower their profits at a
time when they're making records profits? Do you really think BP,
Shell and Chevron really care about the American economy? Not unless
it effects their pocket book and let's face it; American citizens aren't
organized enough to team-up and do anything together. After all when
it comes to big business, it's these same large corporations that make the
enormous contributions and offer all the perks to our politicians, not the
little guy, and who's listening to the little guy anyways unless it's
re-election time? Yet it's the little guy that pays most of the
taxes, sends their kids off to fight foreign wars, tries to pay for
healthcare, education for their children, property taxes, federal, state,
and sales tax and more, all on what's called middle income earnings.
So who's really watching out for whom? When will enough be enough
and when will America start watching out for Americans instead of big
business and politicians? Unfortunately, never. 05/15/2007
Tony Blair is
stepping down after 10 years of service. Blair's started off in
office with a great reputation and a huge following, but when Tony took
sides with President Bush, his following and reputation went straight
down hill with him. So what's my point? First of all,
I'm embarrassed to have President Bush represent the USA, secondly I
think the world can bite the big one! Yes our politicians have their head
up their asses, and yes they don't have a clue when it comes to taking care
of anyone other than themselves, their families and friends, yet whenever there are injustices in the world, it's
the world that looks to the USA to take care things and pay for
agree Bush and the majority of politician are self-centered, self-service
ego maniacs, but they don't speak for our country, they just paid more
than the next guy to get in office. America is, in spite
of the political arena, a great place; we care about not only our own
people, but we care about others no matter what country their in. We send our money, support and
our own children off to foreign countries to make things better, not for
us but for you! We go to these other countries not with our hands out, but with our hearts
out. Yes we have a few bad apples, but it's the US news that reports
those bad apples and what they've done. I bet, you can't think of another country that actually
takes action when it comes to protecting other people and other
countries, and no country has sacrifice as much as the US in both money
and our own peoples lives. So if the rest of the world wants to hate us, I'll say it
again; they can bite the big one. 05/09/2007
world opinion: When people used to think of America they might have
few bad things here and there, however eventually they would come back
with something about how America reaches out to the poor, needy and
helpless, but today America stands for greed, power and insincerity.

feels, everyone else's opinion simply means almost nothing. I guess
he's just part of the "ME" generation.

It's incredible to
hear the Democrats and Republicans criticize President Bush for his
actions in Iraq, yet both parties has been directly responsible for
authorizing and acknowledging each step along the way. I personally
don't understand how they can keep criticizing yet they can't seem to come
up with any better solutions other than asking the U.N. to get involved
and for the U.S. to pullout.
First of all, the
U.N. has already told the world they're not interested in getting
involved, so stop talking like it's an option. If
you really want to stop the war in Iraq or elsewhere, give them
electricity, jobs, food, shelter, and a future. You can't
blame anyone for helping whichever special interest group that offers to
pay, feed and shelter their families.
is it so important for the news media to broadcast every step our military
plans to take before it happens? If our enemies would do the
same, we wouldn't have to worry where they're at or what their up to, we'd
just do what our enemies do, what the news! This reminds me of our
original 13 colonies battling against the British. The British did
everything by the book while our colonies used every sneaky little trick
in the book. The British chivalry and ethics help give us our independence.

rich he is, and didn't go bankrupt (just took advantage of the
situation). You'd think the news would zero in on these two adult's
childish behavior but instead they talk about how each is actually
promoting themselves "bad publicity is better than no
publicity", which I totally disagree with. These two, not to
mention the news are setting a poor example to everyone on how to behave

either one is associated with, I'd sell it! 12/28/2006

Democrats and Republicans,
grow up, each of you know neither party admits anything unless they get
caught with their hands in the cookie jar.
Why is it ok for each party to make faults accusation against the
other party when they know what they're saying is a lie? Recently I
notice politicians running inexcusable ads against the other party only to
say, we didn't authorize the ad and we're trying to get it off the
air. Is there any accountability, or do politicians just keep
breaking laws because they know they won't be held accountable anyways? 10/28/2006

driving, rape charges, leaving the scene of an accident, careless driving,
etc they simply manage to get the charges dropped and off they go to a
luxurious rehab center for the week, where you and I would end up being
fined beyond our imagination and forced to serve real jail
time. So why doesn't anyone do something about this type of
one sided legislation? Answer, because the public just sites back

good for business? Well, you might say, it depends on where you
live, but for many US businesses, outsourcing has brought on an entirely
new problem; poor support has meant poor customer loyalty. And many
companies are losing customer base by the thousand mainly because their
customers simply can't communicate or get help from their outsourced
support teams. By the way, calling your help desk 'technical advisor',
'specialist', 'consultant' etc doesn't make much sense if they don't know
that their doing. 10/08/2006
We're losing the
war in Afghanistan and Iraq, not just because President Bush is

agenda against everything in America. We're losing the war because
all of these things and our enemies love to hear it! My advise would
be a little more patriotic, freedom of expression is a nice privileges to
have, but bashing everything about America isn't news, it's a simply a
matter of a negative opinion controlled by people with money.

Who really runs
this country? It's the news! Despite the media's claims,
the news slants political stories and certainly seems to have a hidden
agenda against any political power that's in office. It's almost as
if the media automatically takes odds against whatever party that's in
office and seems to relish any and all signs of negativity. Our
media has turned from a reporting agency in to an entertainment series
capitalizing and theatrisizing each incident at the sake of the victims evolved.
If you ever wonder why anyone would want to run for office, become a
police officer or hold a public office, you would have to contribute most
of the criticism if not all to our media. Mean, vicious, relentless,
opinionated stories without a rebuttal. Is this really what freedom

spur economic growth? Personally Ragonomic's trickle down theory
didn't work then and it surely isn't working now. America is losing
thousands of jobs both overseas and over our boarders while large
investors like Warren Buffett spend their investment money in foreign
investments and stocks. The only thing worse is the Federal Reserve

little guy and small businesses that can't afford to borrow money overseas
at near zero percentage rates. How much more can America middle and

country has to offer without following that countries laws? I for
one am in
| favor of legalizing migrants that apply for legal work permits
and/or citizenship, but it simply makes no sense to allow people to sneak
in to America then make demands. If they can't follow America's laws,
we don't want them here anyways! 05/04/2006
illegal aliens etc, it looks simple; have every illegal alien, migrant
etc register as visiting, working or as citizens of America and arrest,
fine and deport the
rest. If an employer has an illegal alien
working for them (without the legal identification) fine them!
America needs to know who is living within our borders and every person
and business needs to be held accountable. I wouldn't think about hiring an illegal alien in my
small business because it's illegal!
Personally I love
most people from Mexico and think most are hard working, polite, happy

President Bush has
requested an investigation in to rising gas prices. Who does he
think he's kidding? He's from Texas! Bush knows how gas prices
work and he knows there's always a few (10% or so) that take any advantage
of whomever they can, whenever they think they can get away with it.
Bush also knows the only people that can get in trouble for price hicks is
the individual gas station owners, not the corporations that are making
billions on the higher cost of fuel. I personally think President
Bush thinks he'll look good to the public while not losing a dime of the
larger corporate campaign contributors. 04/25/2006

are Christians. So what's wrong with nondenominational prayer
in the morning? 2.) By listening to the press one would think
America is full of racism and hatred and yet the vast majority of
Americans have friends that are of another race, religion etc.
3.) The press would have you believe "freedom of speech"
means any person or organization can and should say anything they want
anywhere no matter whom or how many people it offends. Well, I think
"freedom of speech" is great but still needs to be controlled
just like anything else. Protesting at funerals, blocking abortion
centers, harassing religious and ethnic organizations and broadcasting
where our troops are located and what their plans are, including the
"imbedded reporters" need to be controlled. 4.) I'm
not a Republican nor a Democrat, so it really gets me when the press
pushes everything off as American's being one or the other.
Sometimes Republicans win, sometimes Democrats and occasionally
Independents win, why? It's simply, most Americans vote for the
person or organization they most believe in, not along partisan lines!
Justice David Souter issues another blow to hamper the police
investigations by stating, police can not enter a building if one of
the occupants object without a search without a search warrant even if the
others give authorization. More
on this store....
Comment: It's just a
shame to think judges can interpret the laws anyway they want, if a person
asks the police to come in to a building, I would think the police have
every right to search. So basically if a person has something to
hide, they can tell the police to leave while they get rid of the
evidence. What a shame! 03/22/2006

Judge Alito is
really none of your/ my business, no one has ever asked what I think about
a supreme court justice and probably never will. The entire process
seems to be just between the President and the congress cronies.
They approve or disapprove along party lines and decide who best fits
their particular interest. Have you ever met a judge that just
seemed to be a normal citizen? I haven't.
approval rating is now near 30% and slipping. So what can this
guy do right? First George could care about America and take care of
the issues at home. Low paying, unskilled jobs are taking over
America while our technology companies are leaving as fast as
possible. George might want to stop rubbing shoulder with his VIP
buddies for a while since he can't run for another term, and maybe he
should start addressing the issue of industrial plight! Let the
companies and congress know it's not ok for the companies that have made
their fortunes at home to simply pack up and take our jobs, skills and welfare
elsewhere. Be a friggen leader and a true American! Make a
stand for your country! It's simply not right to profit in America
then leave to China, Indian, Malaysia, Mexico etc. And as far as the
American people, stop doing business with companies that abandon
you! Wake the heck up!

he gets whatever it is that he wants and doesn't seem to care who it

2005 will prove to be record profits for the oil sector. High

of the picture. BP, Shell, Exxon, Mobile and others are all in
cahoots with each other protecting their production, shipping, refining
and exorbitant profits at your expense( price fixing?)! Oil could be sold for less
than the $60.00 plus a barrel, but why should it? They own the companies
that buy their own products, then own the distribution end of

they own it all! So do

looking forward to buying this book until I listened to his sour and often

including Donny Douche. None of the guest would allow Bernard time
to answer their questions and when they did, he was rude and extremely arrogant.
One of the biggest complains I have is that none of the guest including Douche
even taken the time to prepare themselves by reading the book. What
a waste of TV time and paper.

not really sure how things really work in America, but it
sure seems like we give an awfully lot of money to foreign aid and
goodwill, while at the same time, millions of us live on very
little. I don't think the President, the Senate or the House of
Representatives really know what it's like to live in America on a less
than average household income. I just keep hearing President Bush
repeating how America sacrifice, yet all I see is how the middle to lower
class families sacrifice. I have been working for over 40 years and
yet I drive around in a vehicle that's over 12 years old. I'm also
not willing to have my kids go fight battles on foreign soil while the
upper class kids go off to college and move on with their couriers.
What am I missing besides money?
By the way, I just
heard on NPR that some government employees are now being guaranteed to
receive their average annual income once they complete 15 years of
service. How can they enact such a law when these are the same
people that are cutting every other American's jobs, medical benefits and
social security? Who's representing the middle class, nobody?
Piston's Basketball game erupts, so who cares? American athletes

are because of brain power. I personally think, all the attention, prays
and glory and sometime reference to "heroes," goes way beyond
what the athletes deserve and/or give back to the people. There's
dollars in athletics because of the entertainment value, nothing
more. Athletes are glorified entertainers, so don't expect more out

wins re-election by a narrow margin! Does this really
mean as the press has been stating for the past year "America has
been deeply divided?" I think not! As evident by the
previous election, each state kept its Democratic and/or Republican
majority vote. So why does the press keep saying Kerry and Bush have
this deep divide in beliefs? And what's this bunk about 60% of all
Christians voted for Bush, while 70% of all non-believers voted for
Kerry? This is not reporting, it's more guess work. How could
the press really know who voted for what, they're all secret ballots,
aren't they? (11/03/2004)
last night one of Bush's campaign managers contacted a spokesperson in
Kerry's camp asking for Kerry to formally concede the election victory to
President Bush. Kerry's people stated they were waiting
for all the votes to be counted, after all, the election count was not
final. Bush's people than lashed back by stating Kerry was holding
on to foolish hopes and basically wasn't in touch with reality. My
quest is, why would the morons in Bush's camp feel it necessary to contact
or riddle Kerry at that time, instead of waiting until the votes were officially
embarrassed to be called an American at this time.
Is Bush and Kerry the best America has to offer? I'm embarrassed
whenever I think of how many times I've watched both parties dodge
question and avoid the issues, then turn to the crowd holding their thumbs
high in the air as to celebrate victory.
It's sad to think
that most American's can'tt point out what either party really stands for,
and it's more of a shame to have to wait until we get to the voting booths
to know what the really issues are. With all the unaccountable
advertising, signs, phone calls and more, it would seem like at least
someone would have addressed the facts and laid them on the table for all
runs these campaigns anyway, a bunch of rich, intellectual
and Kerry met for staged debate #1, no surprise questions
allowed. I'm not a Kerry fan so it came as no surprise when I
thought Bush looked and acted most like a knowledge, home town
President. But when I watched the debates the second time, and yes I
fell a sleep a few times, I began to believe the news panel; Kerry looked
and sounded good especially when he wasn't reiterating himself,
which Kerry did over and over again.
I personally think we
need to reunite our allies, however I also feel most of our allies are
fair weather friends at best (France, Russia, Germany etc.) Besides
most countries hate us anyways unless they need aid or military
support. At the same time; I guess the U.S. does push its weight
around a little too much. In the past our political and military
involvement was fairly secretively, but since Bush came to office; it's
done like a bull in a China shop. It might be that the silent method
had proven to create less enemies, therefore Bush really should go back
and speak with his dad about politics and public relations. Other
then this, Bush is an excellent military President, he's just out of touch
with the common folks of America and the rest of the world. Maybe we
would be better off with a wishy-washy President like Kerry in office. (10/01/2004)

went as well as the final balloon mishap.
The balloons didn't fall when they were suppose to and Kerry didn't
deliver anything new, just the same old political jargon he used to
be against. I don't like Bush, but I sure don't want someone
in office that doesn't have a clue what he's going to propose once in
first before good old common sense and a little humor. In a speech
in Ontario California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger
claimed Democrats were holding up budget proposals, however all the Democrats
seemed to have heard were his comment about "girlie men."
Why can't the Democrats just laugh it off and get to work for their constituents?
Details regarding Schwarzenegger's speech are listed below.
ANGELES (July 19 Saturday ) - Democrats are upset by Governor Arnold
Schwarzenegger's claims Democrats are delaying new budget
proposals by catering to special interests. Democrats protested that the
remark was sexist and homophobic. Schwarzenegger also mocked Democratic
law makers by calling them "girlie men''.
said Schwarzenegger's remarks were insulting to women and gays and
distracted from budget negotiations. State Sen. Sheila Kuehl said the
governor had resorted to "blatant homophobia.'' Kuehl
is one of five members of the Legislature's five-member Lesbian, Gay,
Bisexual and Transgender Caucus.
Mark Leno, a San Francisco Democrat who is chairman of the Lesbian, Gay,
Bisexual, and Transgender Caucus, said he was glad Schwarzenegger didn't
repeat the "girlie men'' remark Sunday, saying it was "as
misogynist as it is anti-gay.''
disparage a group of law abiding tax paying citizens is just wrong,'' Leno
Speaker Fabian Nunez, a Democrat, said that while he wasn't upset by the
remark, his 13-year-old daughter was.
a young girl who knows the governor and really likes him a lot and didn't
find the term to be a positive term, and finds it to be derogatory,''
Nunez said. "It was no question a very, very insensitive comment to
make. I personally am not intimidated or threatened by it, but I think it
really is beneath Gov. Schwarzenegger.''
spokesman for the governor said no apology would be forthcoming. Go
Don't vote this November, let the world
know we know we don't have any real leaders and get it over with.
Maybe, if other countries knew we're not all that proud of our leaders
they wouldn't hate us Americans. It's hard to believe our country
can't do better then John Kerry and/or President Bush. Take Kerry
for example, he's accomplished virtually nothing while in the
Senate, in fact I had never heard of this guy until he started running for
President. While Bush, on the other hand has managed to, at one time
or another, pissed-off most of the rest of the world. Yes, I know
Bush was raised as a spoiled little rich kid that was used to getting
things his own way without having to answer to anyone, well, his daddy
isn't there to get him out of problems any more. And let face it,
Kerry has been completely out of touch with the Senate and for that
matter, the rest of the world. So how can we allow either of these
two to represent and shape our country for the next four years? Stop
backing either of these egotistical morons and let's find a couple of
real candidates, we must have at least two don't we? (07/09/2004)
"Nuradin Abdi of Somalia had been
arrested, back in November of 2003, for plotting to blow up a mall in

If Nuradin had been picked up in one of many third world country, Nuradin
could be tortured, then face a firing squad. So, why would he be
tortured there but not here? Well, mainly we're a country of softies
that turn the other cheek unless we're directly effected. We're so
used to hearing about death and destruction both here and around the
world, we don't pay much attention to what it must be like for the victims
surviving families. We seem to be impervious to other's pain and
suffering, yet we fight for other's protection and rights when their out

proven guilty' but I'm tired of watching us chastise our police
departments, FBI, President Bush and many others who are merrily trying to
protect us. "War on terror" will never end unless we get
tough, root out our enemies, press for answers and plan for the
future. I would like to ask you why are there more successful
terrorist attacks in Iraq today then there were when Saddam was in
power? The answer is easy, Saddam, although crazy with power and
guilty of using extreme inhuman torture against his opposition, took the
offensive and routed out his enemies. So for all of us here in the
U.S., let's learn a lesson from those that have been fighting for
thousands of years; take action against those that are trying to eliminate
us, let's root out our enemies and where needed, do what's needed to
protect all of us. Who know, may be someday we will even take action
against crime in America"

might see a few signs of economic growth here and there, but growth isn't
a bad thing, it's exactly what the U.S. needs; to help offset Mexico and China's new found economic boom. Greenspan needs

Jobs and security
for March of 2004: Contrary to public opinion, I believe
President Bush has been doing a great job fighting terrorism.
Also Bush was right on the money regarding war on countries like Afghanistan
and Iraq. If Bush would have stood by and listened to more of the rhetoric
as many of you "turn the other cheek" do nothings would have,
our country would have been infiltrated by more Arab sponsored terrorist
then it has. If America continues to just turn the other cheek,
you'll just make an easier target for the terrorist. The terrorist
aren't going to take the time to come over to your house, turn their bombs
off, have a cup of coffee and discus things. Keep in mind, "you
are the enemy!"
On the other side of things, President Bush has a
complete disconnect from reality when it comes to foreign trade. His
new ads say he knows exactly where America is headed and he knows exactly
how to get there. The only thing he doesn't say is "America
jobs will be sacrificed in order to get there!"
Sending jobs and technology over seas is close to the
stupidest thing I can think of. I don't care if Chinese made
toasters will cost less for American's, not if we're all unemployed!
I can't eat a toaster! And I definitely will care, if we have
another war and all of our technologies has to come from Arab countries
that don't like us anyways. Even our Allies aren't really Allies,
they're fair-weather friends. As long as they need us, we're great,
when they don't need us, we're power mongers.
Then again, all of us Americans are exactly what's wrong
with our own country. We buy imported goods instead of American, we
hirer non-citizens because they'll work for less and they're more
dependable. At least for a while. They also do what their
employers ask without calling the NAACP, Better Business Bureau or their
attorneys. Let's face it, we are a country of selfish nearsighted
egotistical goofballs that think everyone owes us a living!
If we don't
watch ourselves, America might just go down in history as the shortest
lived world super power!

legislation in his own state, how is he going to pass any as

let him take his $150,000,000.00 that he's raised and distribute it back
to the poor people of America. After all, Bush claims that the money
that goes back in circulation will spur the economy." PP/FL 03/11/2004

Greenspan is looking to cut the Federal deficit and wants your

the economy is moving forward. The bad news is we need to keep

baby boomer's up coming retirement and social security benefits.
you're just a number to this economist and since you didn't elect
him, you can't fire him.

congress towards cutting your social security.
Greenspan is an appointed officer and has a few years to go before

duty when he lead the country in to the recession.
Not to mention his total disconnect from reality. He needs to
do more than clean his glasses! "This guy is bad for

did all the honey bees go? Last year as I was watching honey

behind the honey bees as they gathered pollen. Suddenly the strange
looking bee would fly down on the honey bees back and hold the honey bee

same to other honey bees. That by itself was strange enough, but
more difficult to understand was the honey bees once let lose of by their

question is this; was the strange looking bee depositing a parasite on to
the honey bee or stealing pollen? And since this strange looking bee

is a shame President Bush didn't get the generators, water and State and

this on the US and European press. After all, if they didn't point
out everything that was negative over and over again, most of us would
have thought Bush was right, the war was over. Instead the press
keeps giving a blow-by-blow like it's a play-by-play only all designed to
negatively portray President Bush and our military. Have you ever
heard anyone on the news talk about where the US spent its billions in
Iraq, or how the young men and women in our military gave their lives for
doing what they thought was their duty. I'm personally ashamed and embarrassed

people simply won't rest until Jerusalem belongs to them and Israel is eliminated.
Since we know what the Palestinian goals are, what should America do
with/for Israel? I personally feel Israel has been way to concessionatory
with the Palestinians. Arafat was a pin head and represented the
Palestinian people, teaching hatred and animosity whenever he wasn't pined
down by the Israelis. Bush doesn't seem to be much better when it
comes to foreign public opinion, but the nice thing about America is that
we bash or leaders on a regular basis and we really don't go out an kill
others because of how our leaders feel, or do we? Maybe there really
is little difference, and maybe we need to sit down and re-think our
polices with the Palestinians and Israel. We need a continuing
dialogue and we need the Palestinians State's economy to grow, which will in turn
pay for better education, jobs and an economic life that might eventually
lead to peace. Wars, segregation, separation and illumination all
only maintain the status quo which is sad and fruitless. Good luck
to the Palestinians, Israelis and America. 12/09/2005

either resign or let's give him some military attention. I'm sick
and tiered of hearing countries yelling and screaming about how bad the
U.S. is and how they want to kill all of us. You babies can sit on

you want to help the situation in Iraq, we need to start by helping
the Iraqi's economy, they need jobs, electricity, food, trade, fuel
etc. And the world needs to realize we (the U.S.) made a mistake in
stating "weapons of mass destruction." They may or may not
have had them and they may or may not have been working on the
technologies, but the simple fact is Saddam wouldn't allow the inspector
to do their job and continued to play games with these issues. Saddam
was repeatedly warned and the Arab world seemed to support his games.
So Saddam and his followers got what they asked for. But this doesn't
excuse the U.S. for not helping the infrastructure of Iraq and from
providing jobs, food, water and education in Iraq.

as Mr. Abrams asked an expert on Al-Qa'ida which method

our enemies all the press coverage and support they're looking for.
Each kidnapping or killing of U.S. troops are plaster on every TV channel

"If the U.S. allows proliferation of nuclear weaponry,
our future as a world power is certain to be short lived. The
U.S. has only two bargaining tools, military and trade. The U.N.
has proven it no longer looks to the U.S. for guidance or leadership,
and only concerned when aid is needed. Our jobs and technologies
have all but gone overseas in favor of the all mighty dollar and our
technologies all come from abroad. American ingenuity is not
going to keep America safe forever.
I believe the U.S. is helping build its own guillotine."
A view from one of
our very troubled readers: "Pakistan apologizes after
getting caught selling nuclear information to Libya and elsewhere.
So what's going to be our reaction this time? Nothing? After
all, how can Bush do anything? Every time he does act or says
anything negative about any country true or not, he gets bashed by the
press and Democrats. By the way, where was our intelligence on this
one? Were they on top of things like their suppose to be or did this
one simply get by them like everything else? I'm beginning to
believe our Intelligence committees really aren't that intelligent, in
fact even our military really isn't run as well as I thought it was.
After all, with all the new technology and money supposedly at their
figure tips, why is it our soldiers are having to fight a war in the
streets of Iraq instead of on the battle field? Didn't we supposedly
liberated the Iraq people?
When I think of the economic side of things like
our Federal Reserve board chairman, Allen Greenspan, this guy has
never heard of being optimistic, he's doom and gloom 24/7 and he's
obviously never heard of retirement. I know that the press likes Mr.
Greenspan, but why? Is it the negativity they like? He's
always been way to late when it came to reducing the interest rates and
now his pre-mature talks about raising the reserve rates are confusing at
best and terrible for our economic recovery. Personally, I'm glad to
see the Yen and Euro high, now may be some of these countries will start
purchasing more from the U.S., which helps our economy. Of course we
still have time for Greenspan to ruin it. So let's wait and see how
long it takes for him to start the interest hicks.
We are a country of mismatched state laws, most state
governments, police departments and intelligence gathering agencies won't
or can't share data with each other. At the same time our country
has a history of crime and yet, always opted for "early out"
jail sentences just to save a buck. It also seems that only
our politicians, lawmakers, movie and sports stars receive fair treatment
when it comes to the occasional brush with the law. Not to change
the subject but what's with all the junk on TV? The violence, sex
and continuous beeping out of the way-to-often swear words. This
can't be good for the moral fiber of our country, if there is such a thing
Even President Bush's "no child left behind"
isn't working, unless we do like they did in Texas, lower the grade
standards. If we're not careful, we won't have any schools receiving
government aid. After all, it's exactly these intercity schools that
aren't getting the needed grades, education and environment, and yet
they'll be the first to be cut. Personally, I know my kids do twice
the homework as I used to have to do when I was a kid, and what's funny is
the school system has sent numerous notes home demanding parents spend
more time helping their children with homework and taking a more of an
active part in school programs. Do they forget that as parents, we
not only help with homework each night, but we need to get some sleep to
be able to work the next day and pay for our homes, car, utility, college
education fund, charge card payment and retirement, if there is such a
thing as retirement. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for helping our
children whenever possible. Unfortunately when your children reach
high school, most parents aren't able to help. Which brings me
to my next point, college tuitions, how can the average pay rate decrease
as people are having to work for less pay, while school tuitions keep
rising? Do the people that run these colleges know anything about
the current economic woes? I sometimes think their totally out of
the loop. You never hear about any college president, instructor or
coach taking a pay cut because of lowering funding, yet you hear how the
colleges cut library hours, raise tuition and keep on building these
multi-million dollar sports and tech centers. If I have to take a
cut in pay, so should these profs!
You know, even our inter-cities aren't safe.
Whenever you travel you're warned to watch out for certain areas in just
about any big town or city. Most of this is because our poor are
getting poorer, while we're giving millions away to countries that hate

You know what? I don't care if they find any. I guess
everyone has forgotten how Saddam kept playing games with the U.N.
inspectors and how Saddam killed thousands of his own people, his
invasion of Kuwait and how he was going to wage the "mother of
all wars" against the U.S. I just don't care if we find any
or not. I'm proud of President Bush for doing what he felt was
necessary instead of sitting on his thumbs like the rest of the
world. If you look around, for the first time, you see North
Korea, Iran and Libya talking about setting aside some of our
differences. Viva Bush!" CC/SC
"The U.S. will be allowing Canada, Germany, France and Russia
to bid on reconstruction in Iraq. This is bull! Our
country sacrificed hundreds of soldiers lives because these same
countries wouldn't stand together against Iraq before the

but, by being wishy-washy the war on Iraq was needed, otherwise we
would still be playing the cat and mouse game. I don't believe

able to credit more than 3 months back, at the same time they switch me

on collect calls from International Satellite Communications while staying
at Barcelo Hotels in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic 05/10/2006
Regarding Zero Plus Dialing, Inc. /
International Satellite Communications.
My family and I took an AppleVacation "all
inclusive vacation" to Barcelo Ixtapa Beach Resorts. I must
say initially I was impressed with the arrangement made by AppleVacation.
The flight was great, the ride to Barcelo Ixtapa Beach Resort and their
services were definitely outstanding. Great people! And I
wished my story ended here, but of course it doesn't. While staying
at Barcelo Ixtapa Beach Resorts I was told I needed to call home.
Before calling my wife said I should ask how much the call was because she
has heard of many travelers being bilked out their money calling long
distance. So I did. Initially I asked the Bell Hop at the
front entrance of Barcelo, he thought it should cost about $5.00 American
money, from there I went back to the room and spoke to my wife and was
told to call the front desk or operator. So I did. Here again
they felt it wasn't much and said I wouldn't have any problems. So I
called and spoke to my son for 7 minutes. Guess what? That 7
minute call cost me $58.66! I was shocked, so I call International
Satellite Communication Services and was read a prepared statement ending
by stating I could contest the call through our local phone company but
the hotel nor International Satellite Communication would offer or make
any reductions. My point is, there's a thief in every country, town
and office, this thief has cost AppleVacation, Barcelo Ixtapa Beach
Resorts and International Satellite Communications services my business.
You can't make money by cheating people and I'll
remember not to do business with any of these thieves in the future.

I called my "local" Citizens Insurance agency
asking what my policies covered, a week later I received a phone
message that they had been trying to contact me. So I called
again, this time my representative was out to lunch, so I
waited. Never did get a return call, but I did receive a cancellation
notice. When I tried to go online to Citizens there was no
contact information or method of making an online payment, next I
called Citizens but there was no option to speak with a real
person. So now I'm stuck with expired insurance, an overdue
payment and possibly a State penalty for not carrying proper
insurance. This is just another sign of big business not
knowing how to run a business. They might be worth millions
but they'll have to do without my money. Is there an
insurance company that really do care about their customers?
out for 'spyware' pop-ups, they are the spyware.
Even Google is now tracking its users with their new 'pop-up
blocker.' What can a person do to prevent 'spyware' besides
staying off the Internet? 12/02/2004
and religious stereotyping seems to be the rage on TV lately?
Comedy Central and others seem to think slamming all segments of
society, both foreign and stateside is the only thing that's funny
these days. Is this another form of "Reality
TV?" I guess we're back to the 60s. And this means,
5 to 10 years from now, we'll be talking about the early 2000s as
being totally racist. My it's funny how history repeats
itself. We just never seem to learn our lessons.

singer Glenn Campbell was sentence 7 days in jail, $900 and
70 hours of community service, however Glenn also receives 12 hours
off each day as a form of work release. How fair is
this? If you or I were involved in a 'hit and run' we'd be in
prison not jail and we surely wouldn't get time off for work.
So when will the legal system get fair with their punishments?

why are EPA performed in a near vacuum environment? SS/MN
had a lot of love for President Regan, however I also remember when
Regan was President and remember watching the little guy's interests go
right out the window in favor of supply side economics and big
business profits. Yes, it, along with many other things,
finally got our economy back on track but Bush's tax cuts aren't
much different. Again, the little guy pays the way for the big
guy, so as long as us little guys don't mind sacrificing our
jobs, retirement and family's future, America might someday be back
on top. Keep giving, middle and lower class
America! (06/12/2004 LM/OH)

If you want to do something about SPAM
and you're not a huge company, conglomerate or government
agency, try emailing the SPAMMERS like this: info@eAnthology.com,
also include their respective hosting company which may be found at www.Namesecure.com.
This really works! Again, just ad 'info', 'support' and 'webmaster' in front
of the domain names. Also remember to add 'remove' to the subject line.
Hosting companies don't like SPAMMERS any more then we do, however SPAMMERS
pay big bucks for added bandwidth and emails, so remember to complain
directly to the offenders hosting companies.
needs to cool it when it comes to racial overtones, sex and bad
language TV. Comedians for years have used curse words whenever
they can't think of anything original or funny to say. Same with
sex, obviously people will watch if they have a chance, so why push it
on programs that are geared for kids?" ST/MI
Donald Trump's show "The Apprentice"
is doing much better then Donald's personal finances. But then
again, Trump is no financial wizard, he's a realtor and
salesman. What does surprise me is that banks line up just to
bail him out without costing Trump any real cash. After all,
it's not like Trumps ever going to be able to pay all that money
back. You simply can't pay off a loan by borrowing more then you
make. It's almost like LendingTree.com helping this guy!
But then again, Trump's real secret weapon is TV. Without
TV, Trump would be just another person like you and I, in debt
up to our eyeballs! If you or I owned these same investments
with the same financials, we'd be out in the streets of Harlem, not in
some big high-rise with our name plastered all over the New
York. This reminds me of the last time I tried to borrow
millions more then I made, ya right! Full
story regarding Trump's financial position. In all honesty,
I think Donald Trump is a great salesperson, after all, for what he
had to work with and what little money he really had, he couldn't get
to where he's at if he wasn't one of the best.

"Where is Hilary Clinton?"
Why was Janet Jackson not allowed to perform at the
Grammies but Justin Timerlake was? (02/15/2004)
"I was listening to
favorite radio station (NPR) tonight as they talked about Child
protection legislation in Cambodia and the responsibilities of being a
good news reporter. I was shocked to hear the NPR
announcer suggest he felt that his job and duties as a reporter came
before getting actively involved in helping someone in need.
After all, he was sent out to do a job, he said. If I didn't
love the radio station so much, I'd tune him and NPR out
forever. News reporters, Judges, attorneys, insurance salesman
and many Ministers are like car salesman, they only think of what
they're needs are and what they're hired to do, no ethics, compassion,
sympathy or even care for life and death, unless it comes to saving
their own worthless ass. It's funny how a news reporter can
be hired to report on a story and be near sighted at the same
time." NN/NY (02/05/2004)
"So is congress
going to do anything about SPAM or not? I have been
receiving over 400 emails a day from companies I've never bee to or
heard of. I've repeatedly asked them to stop, I've tried the
"remove" thing, but most of my 'reply' emails come back to
me as rejected, "no such recipient. What can I do?"
Clinton, out of grace?
"Ok, Hilary Clinton made a
mistake, not just about Gandhi and the gas station, but the joke
wasn't that funny. On the other side of it, Hilary has done a
lot of good for people of all color, race, religion and belief.
This only makes her human." MT/MI (01/08/2004)
"Hilary Clinton should forget the
politics and run for President! No pun intended. Hilary
obviously is smarter then our past presidents, including Bill and can
even out-sweat-talk the best of them, again, including Bill. The
best part about Hilary is she knows the issues and has some genuine compassion,
are you listening Howard Dean?" (01/02/2004)
"Hinckley now 48, has lived at St. Elizabeth's
Hospital, in Washington since 1982. Hinckley was acquitted by
reason of insanity in the shootings of President Reagan, presidential
press secretary James Brady and 2 law enforcement officers. Reagan was
nearly killed and Brady was permanently physically disabled. Now
U.S. Attorney Roscoe C. Howard Jr. has agreed with Hinckley's lawyer,
Barry W. Levine in that his client was entitled under the law to
receive unsupervised visits, and the judge's conditions should
alleviate any concerns about public safety. I say, let
Hinckley live next to the judge and lawyer for a couple of years, if
everything works out ok then let him go. Besides, we could also
stop spending the tax payer's money on the security issues."
"I just received a notice one of my

Re. State of Michigan Tax Division.
"I'm a small businessperson located in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and been in business since
1996, both the Michigan State Tax
Division and Michigan State Collections Division have been mailing me
overdue tax notices and computerized assessments for most of the 8
years I've been in business. The State of Michigan has even
placed a lien on everything I own stating that I haven't paid
Michigan State monthly and annual tax returns. I've not only
shown both proof of payment, in full, but mailed and faxed copies
of both the front and backs of each check, including copies of the certified
mail delivery, and provided monthly as well as annual tax copies
over 20 times for each month in question. Yet nothing ever seems
to get changed except the representatives in the Michigan State
Collections Division and then we start all over again.
Why can't the State of Michigan simply allow me to speak with one
specific tax assessor or spokesperson and get this over? Each time I call or mail, the person on
the other end of the line tells me I need to resend everything that
I've already sent numerous time in the past. Isn't there
anything I can do to resolve this and don't I have any rights?

Outsourcing is killing middle class
Americans. Yes, a global economy is great as long as you're not
living in America. The big guys are totally in favor of outsourcing
because their the ones making the money on lower payrolls and
little or no benefits for their own employees. America is the
only country in the world that is not standing up its workers best
interests! Even President Bush is supporting outsourcing, buying
abroad, freer trade and more aid to foreign countries in favor of
cheaper toasters and appliances for those Americans who are lucky
enough to have a job. I guess working at McDonalds is the only
safe job in America. (06/03/2004)
