Off the track, but did you hear that Louisiana voted in the Jefferson dude after finding $90,000 in his freezer wrapped in foil? I am so glad to be away from there!!

You mean William Jefferson Democrat Louisiana? I don't think he put that money there. Go to that conspiracy website I heard Bush had Cheney put that there, it was money he was laundering from the oil in Iraq, he was trying to frame William Jefferson.

The food for oil program was a payday for a lot of those crooks.

I would give you points for that one, but haven't spread them around enough...lol. Great post and sense of humor...too funny!

It is very frustrating, though, that the education of many Louisiana people allowed him to be re-elected with flying colors. To me, that's a major red flag for Louisiana...much like almost everything else.

When both parties are done running for reelection with the 36,000 profesional lobbyists-..plutocracy votes, then they promise us this that and the other what ever we want to hear, of which nearly none ever happen, so we the government can vote. George Washington new we needed more than a two party system playing off themselves, we need a strong third party! The New Christian Reformation Party of the Libertarians of America.

Being we the people are the richest people on the planet, the world will always dam us if we do or dam us if we don't, the UN is no exception, THEY ALL JUST WANT MONEY! no matter how the double souled can get it from us.

SWCMale, I think I understand where you're coming from...however, President Bush has done or attempted to do everything that he said he would do. I voted for him because I think he is trustworthy...not perfect...trustworthy. I also voted for him because Kerry said what people wanted to hear...very conflicting at times. Even though there have been many scandals within the last few years, I still believe that the Republican party is much closer to the traditional views of most Americans...and I'm a little old-fashioned. Ok...I'm ready for the beatings....

That's like saying a blowtorch is a lot colder than the sun. True? Maybe. But neither are exactly cold.

I have to agree with that. Bush has not changed, you know where he stands on what whether you agree or not. Kerry is another story, we really don't know what he's like.
