Heck of a job Bushie.

And the stupidity and ignorance of some people never ceases to amaze me. Bravo. Lord can tell you probably voted for Bush twice.

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Did you find out yet that the "War on Terror" is a sham? You will.

Hermann Goering's Quote
On War And The People

"Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, IT IS THE LEADERS of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is TELL THEM THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY."

--Goering at the Nuremberg Trials

If you keep reading and learning, and not from corporate media, you will come to the only conclusion you can come to. I already know.

What an fantastic post, Gort. Amazing. I fit into some of those statistics. Job loss is a bitch, especially when after two years, you still can't recover from it because your country's economy is shit. And to think, I was doing rather well prior. I suppose I can recover. EVENTUALLY.
