Your thoughts on Bush's speech tonight? I do not like the way he talks about Iran. It seems he is leading America into another war with a far greater enemy that will cause A LOT more Amercian casualities than Iraq. I fear for this country, I reallu do and he is not doing his job. His job is suppose to protect America not destroy it. Now I am not an Isalationist, but I do not think that war with Iran is going to solve the problems ofAIDS in Africa or the starving of humans in other parts oft he world. He said that immigrants help out our economy and that the government needs them. Yet about 10 minutes later he states that he wants to control America's borders and keep illigal immigrants out. Is he contradicting himself? I do support the Survelliance act because obviuosly we need to know what is going on in our borders to keep us safe. Of course they need to put a set of laws down so he can not just survelliance everybody. Hopefully they have something some what similar to a warrant the police need to get to search a persons house. He barely touched on Welfare, which I found horrible. All it seems like is that he wants to go to war and control the country. He seems to be turning his attention to our countries resources and security in our country, but terroism does not start in the united States and yet he expresses hoe he wants the US not to be a Isolationist. He was appluaded not by Democrats, but usually by Republicans. And when he contradicted Congress for not passing the Social Security Reform the Democrats stood and appaulded. The Social Security Reform was actually horribly put together. His polls have gone down to 42% before the speech and this is the worst a President has had in a second term, since Nixon after the Watergate Scandal. The President boasted at our employment and yet Ford is laying off thousands of people over the next couple of years. And where as the topic of tax cuts? He didn't touch on that at all! Bottom line is that I think President Bush is leading us down the wrong road, his reforms are not getting us anywhere, war seems to be imminent, and our economy's state is not as good. I guess we will have to wait and see his improval ratings after his speech. I would value anybody else's opinions?
Eh, I didn't watch the chimp.
If they attacked iran or tried to invade, iran would launch all of its 2000 shahab ballistic missiles, all it takes is 500 or so of them to pretty much destroy israel, and the rest will be aimed at the U.S, I really do wish they would try to invade iran because then Bush would be scrwed permanently.
Bush kept saying what they will do, but now how they will do it. Also I didn't like the way he referred to the "activist judges" trying to "redefine marriage" as the downfall of our culture.
I'll write more when I think of it.
that man makes me proud not to be american (no offense to americans,cause 99% of you are cool as hell :bows:)
Invade Iran?, shit, I must come back to church and mosque and synagogue and pray for my sins because we soon will die and be in front of God and I don't know exactly who is the right one
"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist." :p (hope you whom this quote comes).
"In a case of doubt, kill them all, god will recognize his fellowers " :lol:

No more foreign oil dependance by 2025? Who the heck does he think he's kidding? By 2025 there won't be much oil left PERIOD, God only knows where it's going to come from.
oscar989 I do support the Survelliance act because obviuosly we need to know what is going on in our borders to keep us safe. Of course they need to put a set of laws down so he can not just survelliance everybody. Hopefully they have something some what similar to a warrant the police need to get to search a persons house. [/quote] God I don't support that; I like the fact that the 4th Amendment exists and what it is intended to do, and I don't want to always worry that the government can pry into my life. If he wants to make finding terrorists easier, he should push for a bill that will make getting a search/tap warrant easier, NOT do away with them entirely (which is what he has done now).

Yeah I agree with you, the problem in this country isn't the citizens, it's the fact that all the people who try to run it are just flat out stupid. I still say the best way to increase voter turnout is to find a person who is open to suggestions, and takes everything with a nice big does of common sense...as if we'll ever see THAT while everyone tries to cling onto party values:rolleyes:
