Senbon...you sound surprised that an Oil Tycoon would be running government...yeah...shocker! It takes a LOT of money to get elected, and a lot of clout and a LOT of knowing (and kissing) the right butts.

Not a lot of Politiians go into it because the "want to change the world", they do it because they only want to change their little corner of it. Y'know...make it bigger, better, etc.

The kicker is that although he needs a lot of money, and a lot of clout, he needs YOUR vote more than anything else...and enough "your"s gave it to him, in spite of any misgivings to the contrary, that he is able now to finish his agenda, and move back into his new and improved corner of the world.

Kimm you should know damn well that i`m not oblivious to the actions of government. The economic tycoons have always manipulated the government. Its probably the traditional way the U.S. is run.... I mean I dont have to question where government official get their paychecks from. I`m just furious about the rash increase in petroleum prices. Means more money to pay for gas and that means i`m gonna really need my motor cycle now.
It seems that a large majority of the CR users (adult and noob alike) make it seem that their focus is democratic. Perhaps this is the response to President Bush in the Big Chair of the Whitehouse.

I'll stay out of the political debate because arguing about the politics of a foreign country because I can't have any effect on the outcome.

@Thefinalword, I was justified in my original post because if you had read the article you would have seen that the copypasta you pulled was somewhat incorrect. As for my later outburst it wasn't directed at you but rather at Noddle. Anyway I hope no harm done.

the upcoming election seems to me to be more of the same. the people are differant, but their funding all comes from the same people. special intrest groups and lobbying firms control what happens any way. they write the laws then send them to the appropiate sentor or rep. for their sponsership. what really needs to be done is to have the "iron triangle" broken down. get the lobbyist the hell out of policy making. that would improve things so much. "I believe politics at it's best is a war or idea's" or something like that. there are to many things that are wrong now to focus on just one topic. healthcare, poverty level, problems from OPEC gouging, unemployment, campain reform, lets not forget the growing problem of illiegal immigration. Too many problems and not enough room for the daily sound bite on cable news next to paris or lindsey, or what other kind of fluff story they fill our head with to distract us. listen to npr if you want news, or at least keith olbermann. You don't even have to report the truth on the news. You can lie and insinuate til people dont know fact form fiction.

I could make an American sterotype joke right about now, but it would just be way too easy.

Hint - Not everyone in the world is American

dood I didn't give a shit so don't worry, takes more than to even make me flinch.
I simply copied and pasted to get opinions, read the article but didn't think too much of it. Wanted to see what other people thought.

wow this topic sure meanders away from the origional post!


But...


The prohibitions in subsection (a) of this section include, but are not limited to, (i) the making of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services by, to, or for the benefit of any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order, and (ii) the receipt of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services from any such person.


If you actually read this and not put your own bullshit into it...
It's trying to stop the funding of terrorism in from the US.

There are a lot of people who are funding it in from the US, and even taking tax deductions for it!
They passed a new tax law for this year, any amount of cash donation over $600. must come with documentation. Dr's and designers were sending a large portion of their money overseas to fund terroristic activities, and this new act, (which is NOT a law btw just an ACT) helps prevent that.
However, the money doesn't just come from the states, and terrorism is being funded by multiple sources, diamonds from Africa, oil from Venezuela (sp), cocaine from central America.. the places for funding are limitless... but congress and bush want to try and stop it AT LEAST from the us....
so stop reading shit into this... it's not stopping your 1st or your 5th amendments... i could scream from the to of the roof, "I HATE THIS FUCKING WAR IN IRAQ! IT SHOULD BE STOPPED IMMEDIATLY!" I won't but i could, and i'd be fine. Nothing can happen to me.

If the government were to seriously pass a law that restricted our 1st or 5th amendment rights (or ANY amendment rights for that matter )

just remember the Preamble to the declaration of independance.

We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are ENDOWED BY THEIR CREATOR with certain UNALIENABLE rights...
Life, LIBERTY and the PURSUIT of happiness.
That governments are instituted, among men, deriving their just powers from the CONSENT of the governed, that if any potion of this government becomes unjust it is the RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO ALTER OR ABOLISH IT!

(sry it's from memory so i'm not sure it's correctly worded, or punctuated...)

That is awful. Thank God we only two more years with "W" in office. He's worse than Hoover was during the Great Depression. Why are we losing our rights as citezens. We should be able to make a stand and say what we believe whether the White House likes it or not. this stuff really makes me angry

I don't really see the Bush-monkey connection, but whatever.

Seriously politics are about to make my head explode.

What I think-

When everyone talks bad about Bush, it's not helping at all. He hasn't actually done anything against the law, so he won't be impeached.

I say cut him some slack and see what he can do when he's not under pressure.

I still don't agree with Republican or Democrat.
