    Hmmmmmmmmmmmm interesting..................The Laissez Faire policy of the previous administration has worked so well, why would we want to change that?
    I think we would all agree that we are in some kinda mess here. Decisions have to made and policys must be changed. We could argue what those changes should be and for certain we are not going to like all of them, but I am fairly sure most of you see the folly in continuing down the road we were on.

    You just can't help it, can you? It's the default position to go to the "failed policies of the last eight years" card. No need to discuss the merits of the current issue being discussed. It would be funny if it weren't so sad.

    While I am still affected by the policies of the last eight years I am not about to forget "W" and his minions. Nor will I let up on criticizing them.

    Nobody expects you to change your mind about the Bush years. Nobody expects you to stop speaking your mind about it. I just find it ridiculous (and telling) that some of those on the left can't manage to have a conversation about the actions of a Democrat without comparing it to the actions of a Republican. Why can't you just discuss the issue at hand? For example, I will not justify the excessive spending and pork-barrel projects that happened while the Republicans controlled Congress by citing examples of the same thing since the Dems took control. I was pissed off when the Republicans did it and I'm pissed off that the Dems do it. I will not justify Bush's actions in Iraq or Afganistan by comparing them to Clinton's actions in Bosnia or Somalia. I will, however, discuss Bush's actions, Clinton's actions, or Obama's actions on their own merits. From my perspective, the inability to directly discuss the issue without inserting the dig at Bush seriously diminishes the credibility of the poster. One man's opinion.

    Last week I completed a series of finals on how the Soviet Union came into existence. what is scary is how similar the political climate In Russia was at the time of Lenin's rise to power is to the political climate of America today.

    The people willingly let Lenin and the Bolsheviks in and it did not take too long before they were sorry for their decision. By the time they realized what Lenin's ambitions were, it was too late the Bolsheviks had power and eerily enough for us, the first thing they did was ...take over private industry and banks.
    I am not suggesting that Obama wants to be another Lenin ( although i honestly don't think that would break his narcissistic heart) But I do believe the example is not lost on him that in extreme times extreme social changes can be made by the government. I would not trust this move by the Administration a bit ...It should scare the crap out of you.
    Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle?
