Re: When I Look Upon Pelosi & Reid I Get......

I have not problems with the viewpoints of others... unless of course they start to tell me how I am wrong and stupid or something else like that...

I am 'liberal' to the neo-cons and 'conservative' to the leftist....

I don't care about the guns... I think I have a .22 rifle somewhere in the house... it was my father's, but might have given it to my BIL... he has many guns... but, it is in the constitution and don't mess with that...

I also agree that they have been abusing thier poweres... have been torturing people, been listening illegally, etc. etc... but, nobody seems to be doing much about it.... so I DO hope the dems dig in and stop it now...

But, PLEASE do not go on a spending spree... like I had said once, spend only the revenue earned.... not more... and you can spend it on those programs you like... but please not more... and if the repubs get back in.. they can stop spending on your junk and spend on THEIR junk... but PLEASE not more than what comes in...

well, so far in the last quarter century only one president has done as you asked. And he was a democrat.

This is why all the comments about the free-spending democrats are so misguided. But that 's the usual right-wing tactic--Repeat the same disinformation enough times, people believe it regardless of whether or not it's true (I'm not talking about you here, Texas Proud).

democrats are whimps, and I fault them for not standing up to the republican lie machine. I fault them for going along with Bush's insane agenda out of fear of the political consequences. I fault them for for not defending the constitution against the assault. I fault them for not standing up to Bush's hypocritical bashing about judicial appointments after putting up with the Ashcroft-led total refusal to confirm any appointments in the last 2 years of Clinton's presidency.

But it's simply not fair to criticize them for being fiscally irresponsible when they are the only one that have shown any semblance of fiscal restraint in decades. Not that I trust them that much either, but it seems unfair to criticize the dems of today for what Lyndon Johnson did.

Technocracy, anyone?
Seriously, we can do a lot better than a bloated system that feeds itself money in order to maintain its own survival, feeding on our hopes that we are being offered a serious choice that might actually make a difference in our actual lives. Corporations are taking over the world. The average American is exposed to 20000 advertisements in a single day. Consciously or not we are all playing the game of buying into the game of branding and corporate identity... and these same corporations will leave our children to foot the bill when the ecological and humanitarian damage assessment comes rolling around in about half a century.

And taking a look around the neighborhood... not many people put their bin out yesterday... maybe 10 to 15%... so, in real dollar terms it cost $30 per household who recycles....

But, as I said, this was just an example of how 'liberals' want to govern..
Recycling DOES pay for itself. The city in which I live makes money from AL, cardboard, and paper recycling (shipped to China). It loses money recycling glass and plastic but, overall, it's PROFITABLE.

That doesn't even include the money saved from less dump space.


Edit: I should've written that recycling can pay for itself. It doesn't always.

I tend to agree with that statement, however many of the costs are hidden, so it's hard sometimes to compare.

Here's an example (and I'm not saying this is all fact, it is more to illustrate the point):

A: If coal fired plants emit mercury, and
B: that mercury causes health problems, and
C: the coal burners are not paying the health costs

then the true cost of burning coal is not captured in the commodity price of coal.

For reasons like that, I tend to side with the environment, even if it costs a bit more. But, it can be overdone from both sides. It is a tough call sometimes.

Re: When I Look Upon Pelosi & Reid I Get......

After being away for a couple days I had to read seven pages of this thread in one sitting.

Don't think I missed anything. I won't be reading further posts in this one, either.

If they were in Afganistan & Iraq right now - they would be kicking ass, taking names, spreading democracy, and converting the Taliban & the Jihadists....
