what to do?

Should we just let the taliban take over Afghanistan and Pakistan? Or go full force into the tribal areas on the border and take em out and then get the hell out of there? But that would make the price of oil go way up. The oil countries are hurting, too bad war doesn't make the price of oil drop, maybe there wouldn't be any.

No more troops to Afghanistan, Obama!!

What the f**k, do we really need to send 60,000 more troops to Afghanistan? No, No, No WE DON"T!!! No empire has EVER won a war there. We don't need more disillusioned combat veterans coming home with PTSD. We're fighting this war so the certain parties can still have access to those f*****g poppies. We didn't learn in Vietnam and we're never going to learn in Afghanistan and Barak is going down the wrong road here.

Only THE DEAD know the end of war.

Never, ever thought I'd see Spiro Agnew get quoted around here, even if it was to tar his own ilk.

Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

Hey CC, I hear ya'; thanks CG

I'm not pulling down our system of checks and balances, just creating a new paradigm for our time in the sun. I'm also pokin' a little fun at the mania sweeping our country right now around Barak. There is some fear, justiably, given our dire situation and Barak's orartory skills, that our country, cringing with fear of economic loss, will tilt toward the fascism of a strongman political leader.

Still, imagine if the Green party were the new opposition and the Republicans, totally discredited as they are, become the very distant third party in our country? That would make me a very happy person. The Republican ideal of Leave It To Beaverville One Nuclear Family in One Big House with four cars in the driveway is just not sustainable anymore.

I try really hard to leave no tracks and a very small energy footprint. I'm not off the grid, yet. but I would be if I could....

Wish It Was That Easy

Hey now lamagonzo,

Saw your post and liked it. But, we as a country were founded on checks and balances, so if we were to wipe out the Repubs and all the political crap....where would we be today?

Just a thought.

Outlaw Republicans, Barak Omania!

Now that Barak Obama has been crowned President For Life in America, it is time that we abolished the Republican Party and had all of them arrested uder special provisions of the Patriot Act. Then we could repatriate the hard-core ones who can't be rehabilitated to political correctness to prisons in third-world countries where they could be waterboarded (hey, THEY said it wasn't torture, remember?). Then we could find out things like where Madhoff hid his billions and make money running these prisons (Like Dick Cheney did when he was veep) to support unniversal health care, the arts and social welfare programs. Next, we can elevate the Green Party to the new opposition and let this country move so far to the left that the military will have to hold a bake sale to build a new aircraft carrier!

Seriously, if the Republicans run Alaskan trailer-trash beauty queen Sarah Palin in 12 or 16 they should just hang it up and relegate themselves to the trash heap of history. I can't think of a better place for those nattering nabobs of negativity who just voted unanimously against the stimulus package.

OK, rant over. I feel better!
