As we approach Election Day ask yourself if you'd
rather see gas prices or ketchup prices go up.

As we approach election day I am becomeing convinced we deserve Kerry. We are on a downward spiral culturally and ecconomically that blends well with his "hate anything Bush does' mentallity. Where is his, or our, outrage at the beheadings? Where is his sense of fairness in giving even any marginal degree of credit to the present or past armed forces that protect us? He knows the economy will not bounce back from the dot com world of the mid-nineties but will say anything to get into the chair, then only to blame the congress, as they will still be Republican.

At least, if we elect him, we can go back to pretending France is a world power and that the UN serves some purpose for our money and efforts. We can tax small businesses into turning their growth efforts overseas. We can finally redistribute the wealth so that no one but the upper class bears all the tax burden and appoint some of the Hollywood Stars to their deserved posts in embassy's around the globe. Bush will no longer be drilling for oil in grade school playgrounds and burning black churches in Baltimore.

The Trial Lawyers Association will finally be able to get fair compensation for those who spill hot or cold coffee on their laps and The Man/Boy Love Association will no longer feel disenfranchised. Mormons can marry as many as they want, cattle can marry consenting men and all of Arabia will know we understand their inner child and play nice with us. We can give Libia back it's WMD's and feel "accepted and nurtured" while on vacation in Europe. Stem cells will be harvested, Superman will walk and Jane Fonda can sleep in the Lincoln bedroom again.

So, you guys have now got me on your side. Vote Democratic and Vote Often, regardless of citizenship, age, or if you can locate your home precinct. Can't quite get those nasty little chads to fall out, let me help....

When I am in my Dodge Ram Quad Cab Long Bed, driving down the road after filling it's 30 gallon tank, well, shucks, I feel really IMPORTANT, with So Cal gas now at $2.39 a gallon! It also makes me proud to know that I am helping the peace process by enriching our Muslim brothers!

At least I am not contributing to killing off all of our OBGYN's by enriching junk science tort lawyers, buddies of Edwards.

I am also not wearing a blue beret, and helping our allies, France and others, to enrich their politicians with billions of dollars worth of kickbacks from rogue oil nations. Tell me that will not happen again, and that our 'allies' love us. Kerry would make a terrific U.N. Kommander, he only thinks of his personal power, and his personal bank vault. Past performance is a swell indicator of future rape ("How I went from po' boy blueblood to the worlds most impotent husband).

EGG, you are absolutely right. I haven't
been this gloomy &amp; doomy since LBJ &amp; Nixon
were in office. I keep telling myself that
they both are bad but everytime I see bush
smirking &amp; strutting &amp; I think about that
nutty war I get really, really depressed.
I hear you guys spouting all this right
wing bs on here but it just doesn't ring
true to this ole West Virginia boy.
Everytime somebody expresses a little
compassion for his fellow man you guys
ridicule him &amp; start up with the name-
calling. I had hoped we had progressed
a little since Nam but it doesn't appear that way.

That is as far from the truth as you can get. How about casual observer of stereotypes. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif However, after stating all that, all I simply did was highlight something you yourself said. Nothing more. You chose to mention the state, when it served no purpose, not me.

represents your values.

Yeah. I hear it. WV is NOT occupied by your basic dumb hick. Yeah, we got some...but we are more than that. Ask our current Governor. He will not tolerate (http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2004-03-23-tshirts_x.htm) Ambercrombie and Fitch poking fun at the Westward state and I won't tolerate it here! /ccboard/images/graemlins/mad.gif

However Hondo, WV is voting Bush this year. Two election years in a row a liberal state votes republican? That's gotta say something, IMO.

The gun issue, landshark, killed Gore and it's going to
kill Kerry. It's that simple and it hurts me because
I believe Bush is a bigger threat to us losing our
guns. West Virginia has joined the South in jumping
on single issues and forgetting that republicans
could care less about poor people.

Hondo,

This may not be news but, nobody, in the political arena, cares about poor people except poor people. The politicians, both sides, only use them for votes and to stir up anger. Entire socialist systems for centuries have been developed to exploit the poor and the downtrodden. Name one, excepting free enterprise, that has ever effectively brought any number of them, aside for the leaders out of poverty. Redistribution of the wealth is the always last gasp of society trying to come to terms with want.

Before the campaign, how many soup kitchens did Kerry man? How much did Teresa give to the truly needy? I don't mean the Arts Council! I mean the food bank? I know, Bush probably didn't either, but he ain't claiming the role...However, if you are truly committed to the poor as Kerry is, how much of your income would you give to help? 50%, 70% Surely they have wealth beyond that to more than sustain themselves while their brothers and sisters are starving. What did they pay in taxes? 18% I paid more. You paid more.

Yeah, it's not fair to ask them to give more than their "fair share" but if they are wanting the idle rich to buck up and share more, wouldn't they have already started at home? Would they have not forgone those big tax write-offs and let the treasury have those monies as who is better to re-distribute the wealth than the state?

Hondo, I respect you a lot. What am I missing here on the right.

remembers when Teresa was a republican.... /ccboard/images/graemlins/cool.gif

<hr /></blockquote> This statement is a bit ignornant and would lead someone to believe the democrats actually care about the poor. If you stood back and took a look at how the Dems portray the poor you would see they exploit the poor. They use the poor to keep themselves in office and do nothing while they are there. Tell me how the Dems have helped the poor financially by stealing from the rich? The poor are still poor, and it really does not matter how much money you throw at them.

Your statment is astounding to me to believe you might actually think Kerry and Edwards care about the poor. Kerry has done nothing for the poor and if you don't believe me, show me how he has helped change the position of the poor in his home state. Kerry has been a politician a long time, what has he done to move poor people into the middle class? Minimum wage has increased, more money has been pumped into education, blah blah blah, but nothing has changed. However, the poor seem to think the next Democrat will do even more and believe all the lies all over again.

The same can be said about the elderly. Every election they hear the lies about the Republicans taking away SS. Even this year the Kedwards were out telling them SS was going to be done away with and plans to begin would start in Jan. LOL, the poor and elderly consistently believe this crap election after election. All these years with Democratic House, senate and presidency and nothing has changed. If you were to believe Ross' doom and gloom, then it has actually gotten worse for the poor and lower-middle class. All this happened while Dems have also had control.

To be completely honest, I don't think any of the politicians care about the poor. Most of the politicians are making a great paycheck and most do even better once they leave their office.

Well, I admit that I am not really up to date on the gun issue. I know that the right to bear arms is a big issue with alot of my family members and they are also all Bush supporters...so I can't imagine what you are refering to. /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

As far as the name calling it happens on both sides and believe me, Ross is right there also. A little selective memory seems to be your push.

As far as adding Q to your post, well, it all went down hill at that point. If you think Q participation on this board has been classy, then I just was not aware of how low you will go. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif I believe highsea pointed out all the class Q has offered, and if that is who you want to align yourself with, well then by all means.
