markhighwater/willygarr/canook,

I'm still waiting for math class.

If the following is true, I was ten when you started your tour in Vietnam. Do you honestly expect any of us to believe you talk like this, a person of your age and hopefully wisdom. If I was ten then you would have to be almost 80 now. It's hard to deceive for that long.

Started tour on May 15, 1968 at Bien Hoa Province, South Vietnam..My rank is Captain, Us Army. My MOS {training} is 4800D Maintenance Officer for Ordnance and Civil Affairs...Units served; A Co. Army Depot Long Binh Army S>P>T>, CMD Saigon, 1st LOG CMD, USARV... Medals: Purple Heart

"Democrat partisans will not accept any criticism of the current administration's policies or the current Senate majority leader's policies" Loco

What does "accept any criticism" mean? Does it mean we're suppose to throw our hands up and say "ya got me, you're right, I was wrong all along" "Yep, we are trying to destroy the country, we do want to wreck the greatest healthcare system that every existed"? Well, we ain't gonna "accept" that sort of criticism. Your criticism has got to have some basis in facts. Not just propagandistic hyperbole.

"Not a sliver of foresight or fortitude just the same old petulance you & your party are known for..."

Yeah, that Obamacare thingy passed by Democrats is still just sunshine, light, grins, and giggles.

Am I going to say "only Republicans can fix things?" No. What I will say is that certain Democrat partisans will not accept any criticism of the current administration's policies or the current Senate majority leader's policies, ever, at all.

Why does the critical thinking go all house-on-fire fashion when it concerns Republicans and stop once the conversation turns to Democrats and what they do and say?

veritas...stop drinking the eggnog!! You seem off your rocker more tonight then ever. Is this why? More voters have a positive opinion of former President George W. Bush than President Barack Obama. But former President Bill Clinton is liked best of the three.

The poll finds 50 percent of voters have a favorable opinion of Bush, while 47 percent have an unfavorable view.

By contrast, Obama has a net negative rating: 46 percent have a favorable opinion of him, while 52 percent have an unfavorable opinion.

Views of Clinton are far more positive: 70 percent favorable vs. 26 percent unfavorable. That gives him a huge net positive rating (+ 44 points).

People are blowing a cork here and other news papers. Veritas, you seem to be freaking out about something. Bush is NOT president. Obama is. Impeach him, he is back in Hawaii. By the way, fire them all, none and I mean none have done there job, just changing the Constitution and the rules. I thought Obama was a whiz on the constitution. He has an agenda, and we the American People are not included.

President Bush will leave office as one of the most unpopular departing presidents in history, according to a new CBS News/New York Times poll showing Mr. Bush's final approval rating at 22 percent.

Seventy-three percent say they disapprove of the way Mr. Bush has handled his job as president over the last eight years.

Mr. Bush's final approval rating is the lowest final rating for an outgoing president since Gallup began asking about presidential approval more than 70 years ago

Well, two people voted "disagree" with my 9:35 post.

Apparently they didn't read the post, or they don't have souls.

Test...

"Not being Navajo, there were no “first laugh” ceremonies in my household. But who could forget their child’s first laugh? It’s like having one of the mysteries of life presented to you out of nowhere, right in your own house. That laugh comes from some unknown place deep inside. It may be a response to surprise (peekaboo... now, I’m here, now I’m gone, now I’m back again!) or who knows what, but it’s granted to us, imprinted on us, with a kind of inexpressible joy. The Navajos evidently consider a baby’s first laugh the moment you become a social being, enter the human community, and join the rest of us -- and the person who induces that laugh has the honor of holding the ceremony. Anyone who has ever gotten a classic “belly laugh” out of a baby certainly has a sense that an honor has indeed been bestowed and that a ceremony should be in order."...Lewis Lapham

Well, we certainly hope we can tell our kids that, Mark, and let us hope we learn from history. If not, they will have to survive another recession and economic collapse. After all, the righty's say that they can straighten all this out, if they can just get back into the power seat. Well, lets look at that seat: Reagan-voodoo economics and massive deficit spending- "deficits don't matter": then, we move on to Bush I and more deficit spending. Oh, we then had some common sense and a balanced budget with a surplus..... So much for that with Bush II and economic disaster. Now we have the obstructionist Republicans blocking every recovery bill, gerrymandering voting districts, taking the government to the brink of economic disaster and default. Certainly our right wing zealots want to repeat history. SAD.
