My boy spent a year working with Americorp, one of their projects was tutoring in a black ghetto Charleston South Carolina Elementary School, opened that North California hillbillies eyes.

By the way Americorp was one of the best things ever to happen to him.

I'm with anyone who is against Republicans right now, and until the Democrats screw up worse. Then, I'll be with anyone who is against Democrats. But, since Nixon, the Republicans have generally screwed up more than Democrats, in my opinion, and they're really screwing up, right now.

You forgot interest on the national debt, paid to the rich folks, corporate investors and foreign governments who fund the national debt. I found one interesting quote, "It takes ALL the taxes paid by ALL the individual taxpayers west of the Mississippi river just to pay the Interest on the National Debt each year."In 2003, over 40% of the national debt was owned by foreigners. The figure is likely higher, now. In other words, close to half of that interest leaves the country and contributes nothing, while costing the taxpayer.

A high national debt is nothing but welfare for the rich and foreigners, because of the interest we pay them.

I would love to see a centrist party. no luck though, although the Dems are being pretty Centrist. I know folks like to think Pelosi and Boxer are extreme libs, but if you look at the fight to pass the Iraq war funding bill, they worked hard to bring in the lefters to a centrist position.

a total far right Conservative Republican. Dont like the Neo Cons, or the moderate Republicans like Snow and Chafee. Bush is way too liberal for me, but not so liberal i would vote for Democrat over him

Pelosi also declared "hands off" on impeachment, even before taking her seat. There were plenty of radicals in the party who wanted to push for impeachment immediately. Of course, I don't know if that makes her a centrist, or just an astute reaction to the possibility of President Cheney... ...I do know it makes her a heck of a lot smarter than the dumb crowd that brought impeachment against Clinton and then lost.
