    Geez, Yabs, is that the Leona Helmsley coming out in you? It's their own fault they're poor because they keep having kids? :confused:

    I think it means, "I've got mine, and I'll make no apologies for it. Ah, I feel better now."

    I didn't feel bad to begin with. That doesn't mean I'm not sympathetic to the plight of the millions of poor people in the world. Rather than being so judgemental think about this:
    All the rich countries in the world have secure and well defined property and contract rights. All the unsuccessful ones lack them.

    Either that or somebody's got a complete and total authoritarian fetish.

    That comment makes no sense whatsoever.

    One of the main points Tokyo Rose used to break the will of the American fighting man was the U.S. President was lying to them.

    Chicken little was right! I just saw a piece of sky fall and nearly hit me!
    Oh, wait, it was just from a bird passing over head!

    So buy low and sell high? What is Citibank at now? 26? Before it was at around 56?

    Bush's solution is to give money out to the tax payers? What? about $900 or so? That will take 10 weeks for Congress to decide if they give it the go ahead. What are people going to buy with that $900 or so? Probably or mostly items made in China!

    The lies in chronological order, with dates:

    Cut and pasted(sorry Rhoody) from Findlaw.com via CNN News.

    "Right now, Iraq is expanding and improving facilities that were used for the production of biological weapons."

    United Nations address, September 12, 2002

    "Iraq has stockpiled biological and chemical weapons, and is rebuilding the facilities used to make more of those weapons."

    "We have sources that tell us that Saddam Hussein recently authorized Iraqi field commanders to use chemical weapons -- the very weapons the dictator tells us he does not have."

    Radio address, October 5, 2002

    "The Iraqi regime . . . possesses and produces chemical and biological weapons. It is seeking nuclear weapons."

    "We know that the regime has produced thousands of tons of chemical agents, including mustard gas, sarin nerve gas, VX nerve gas."

    "We've also discovered through intelligence that Iraq has a growing fleet of manned and unmanned aerial vehicles that could be used to disperse chemical or biological weapons across broad areas. We're concerned that Iraq is exploring ways of using these UAVS for missions targeting the United States."

    "The evidence indicates that Iraq is reconstituting its nuclear weapons program. Saddam Hussein has held numerous meetings with Iraqi nuclear scientists, a group he calls his "nuclear mujahideen" -- his nuclear holy warriors. Satellite photographs reveal that Iraq is rebuilding facilities at sites that have been part of its nuclear program in the past. Iraq has attempted to purchase high-strength aluminum tubes and other equipment needed for gas centrifuges, which are used to enrich uranium for nuclear weapons."

    Cincinnati, Ohio speech, October 7, 2002

    "Our intelligence officials estimate that Saddam Hussein had the materials to produce as much as 500 tons of sarin, mustard and VX nerve agent."

    State of the Union Address, January 28, 2003

    "Intelligence gathered by this and other governments leaves no doubt that the Iraq regime continues to possess and conceal some of the most lethal weapons ever devised."

    Address to the nation, March 17, 2003

    interesting, whether I believe anything those guys are saying to sell their show, well it has to be taken with that in mind. But it wouldn't surprise me. The Bush administration has strengthened the executive branch and now seems to operate as if there were no checks and balances.

    And more to the point, if you now disagree with presidential policy your not a disenter or loyal opposition your a traitor. Look at Logic wings post, a case in point, no other opinions can be tolerated, if you don't agree with the agenda, your a traitor like Tokyo Rose. Look at Cheny's latest retorts, much the same rhetoric.

    However, Conspiricy theorists are never staisfied, there is always another conspiricy over the horizon. If you deal with even the facts it is bad enough.
