    Just remember, if you write cheat notes in your hand....don't raise your hand facing the professor. Works really well I hear....

    I got a B in polical science for having a right-wing view and voicing it, when the prof had the Soviet National Anthem on his voice recorder. It should have been a clue, but I missed it.

    So ask yourself is a good grade more important than being right, if you choose to disagree with him. If he quotes Rush and Glen Beck in his lectures, that would be a good indication of what position you should take.

    When and why did your view change Sambo?

    Do you discuss politics with your wife? Meeting her last Fall, I got the impression that she's a bit more conservative than you are.

    The answer is.....It's All Bush's Fault!!!

    You should make a 100.

    During Bush's second term. It seems like no matter where I live I'm on the wrong side.

    They made me a good Rebublican when I was at Texas A&M and then when I went the University of Chicago, I found them much less conservative than at A&M. Austin Goolsbee (he is one of Obama's economic advisors) was my first econ proffesor there and he and I argued politics all the time. This guy was brilliant and I was full of Rush, but we had fun and drank lots of beers while arguing the subject. Then I went to work on Wall Street and I thought surely they would agree with me about politics there but they didn't, and now back in Texas my view has changed and I'm out of place here too.

    The bottom-line is I'm conservative in my own business dealings and when they talk about balanced budget and no deficits, that agrees with how I run my business. However, having been told this before every election and then watch them do the opposite, I don't believe them anymore nor should anyone else. I watched inflation get out of control the last couple years of Bush's administration as he funded two wars and a large tax cut for people that did not need a tax cut, while elderly people were making hard decisions about whether they should by food, medicine or gas, and that is when the more human side of me stepped in and said this is not me.

    My view of healthcare is that if we have the money to fight two dumb wars and give tax cuts to people that the extra income does nothing for other than give them more wealth, we can afford to provide healthcare to the less fortunate.

    You have Kari's number...she is a military brat and works for an oil company, so you and I will agree that the past adminstration was good to the oil industry, so it is probablly not good policy to speak ill of the devil.

    Very nicely said. Your conservative roots will be doubted by some here, unless you spew Beckisms and blindly agree with them. Ask me how I know!
