    Thank you Brian and I respect yours to. It is difficult to me to put into words my sadness seeing some of these posts when my son and other sons and daughters risk their lives every day to keep us safe. It's good to see communication opening up. There are some great thought provoking posts here that I am glad to see. I am struggling to put perspective on things. No one is more angry or disgusted than I am with our current leadership that wants to send 21,500 more troops out. I am fervently praying that doesnt happen. It is my focus at the moment.

    I hope we can all get through this gambling issue together and maintain positive energy. (sorry kwblue, I know and agree with what you are saying).

    I am particularly agreeing with this post by elgoog right now as I fear I am to emotional, especially with the recent events with our military. I don't think I am the only one.

    i did quit politic discussion years ago, srry guys

    Thanks,
    Mojo

    Unfortunately, the "Bush Dynasty" are the most agressive and single-minded bunch of uninformed people that have ever made it to this position of influence.

    No-one can seriously claim that George W has a handle on the situation, or that his decisions make rational sense. The man is truely an idiot - who is out of his depth.

    If he was in a corporate he would have been replaced as incompetant months ago - but because he's president he'll continue to inflict misery for the full term.

    He is simply going out to "god damn finish what my pappy started " ...
    He doesn't care about tens of thousands of civilians killed - they're "collateral damage".
    He doesn't care about thousands of US soldiers killed - they're a "necessary sacrifice".
    He doesn't care that the people who elected him don't suport this action ..

    He just doesn't care ... and that's the most damning indictment of all.

    Absolutely no apology necessary. My post came across the wrong way and I didn't mind being called out on it

    Actually, Gooner, he has the highest educational degree of any President (MBA). As for the corporate world, he also owned the Houston baseball team at one time. See education is not everything that it is cracked up to be!

    I don't think it counts when the degree is paid for AND he likely has the lowest overall GPA of any president EVER. It also doesn't count when (in essence) his father paid for everything he ever got.

    Earned is much different than 'given to'

    No, he owned the Texas Rangers. Here's a quote from About.com regarding Bush's ownership of the Rangers:

    "It's what happened (and how it alledgedly went down) after Bush became an owner that leaves some folks skeptical about his integrity and honesty. Basically, skeptics contend that Bush and his fellow investors attempted to blackmail the city of Arlington (home of the Texas Rangers) into paying for a new stadium through a sales tax increase by threatening to take the team elsewhere."

    Sorta... but Lemme set ya'll straight on sumthin' right now:

    Bush may claim to be a Texan. He may have a ranch. He may even have an goofy accent. But he aint no Texan.

    The Bush family originally came from New England... which is why Bush senior has a home in Maine. They moved to Austin politics cuz they couldn't cut it in Boston politics.

    Kinda like when Hillary moved from Arkansas to become a New York Senator... just pure politics. Hillary's as much a New Yorker as the Beverly Hillbillys were Californians.

    First, you americans have elected this person and his family more than once
    that is a question that continues to bother me. Nearly every person I've ever asked has denied voting for him.

    More likely is the scenario he cheated his way in (at least the second time, probably both)

    I will fully admit I voted for him last election... here's why:

    At the time, September 11th was still fresh in my mind... the war seemed to be going well... the nation appeared to be mostly united on the issues... we believed in our cause for being over there... well, most did.

    Remember all the American flags on the cars? It was a different time... we were still emotionally raw, and easily manipulated. Times have changed, though. I guess the truth about these things really does come out in the long run... even in politics.

    Would Al Gore have signed anti-gambling legistlation? My guess is yes... but it woulda been attached to a "Greenhouse Gasses" bill.
