Am I the only one who was offended when he said he wants to "create a society of ownership" or something along those lines? Sounds pretty conspiratorial to me!

Corporations are viewed as a person under the law. Ownership by corporation’s constitutes private ownership.
The filmmakers show four examples of corporations at work -- including garment sweatshops in Honduras and Indonesia -- to demonstrate that this ”legal person” is inherently amoral, callous and deceitful.
The corporation, the film points out, ignores any social and legal standards to get its way, and does not suffer from guilt while mimicking the human qualities of empathy, caring and altruism.
A person with those character traits would be categorized as a psychopath, based on diagnostic criteria from the World Health Organization (WHO), points out the film.

Nah, Bush isn't on the verge of mental retardation. Bush probably has an IQ of 90, thats my guess.

personally i don't think that bush's IQ is all that low, I'm gonna say that he is 110. I just think that He's not living in Our world, he sees his own goals(or that of his group) He is almost the same thing as a really pretty woman that doesn't use her brain becasue she doesn't have to.
Personally i'm not a democrat or republican. and i hate all this Liberal/conservative talk. people are too busy trying to be one side to be seeing at what the other side actually wants or needs. It's not even about how we can make this a better country, its more of how we can keep the other side (liberal/conservative) from Ruining what This side (liberal/conservative)wants
I don't have anything against making the world a better place, i just don't like making the rich richer while the rest of us work longer hours. I have three of the four childhood friends i grew up with in Iraq right now. One in the marines and two in the army. I respect my friends for their choices, and i do feel that the iraqi's should have the right to have freedom. but I don't think that is why bush started the war. and to me that is what is wrong. it's wrong to lie to the american people, it's wrong to not admit your mistakes and be greedy and it sure is wrong as hell for the people of this country to spend so much time bickering about this side/that side instead of trying to work together and make the world a better place.
I don't know what's wrong with the media for not tackling the truth, I don't know why everything in the media is "this side that side" i don't know why we are not trying to make a better life for the people of this nation? I don't want to blame anybody who is part of either party for their ignorance. I don't even care who is to blame i just want someone that will fix our problems at my level, or at least try?!?!?!
I obviously don't like bush, he is a scammer and a lier, more so than clinton. I understand that poloticians have to help out the people that support them first, but that doesn't mean i'm going to let them walk all over my way of american life.
Where are all the conservative democrats? where are all the liberal Republicans? where is the balance that makes progess?
Why the F**k hasn't minimun wage gone up in my state since high school yet i'm paying 40% more for rent and i'm paying 40% more for gas, and i'm not seeing any raises for the majority of people? i'm talking about working class people! I live in a building where there alot of latino family are having to double up on two bedrooms just to try and live out of debt!
why is it more important to run the country into debt, while education in the public school system goes farther down into the crapper than when i was in school?
Abortion? Gay Marriage? trust me i have my own views, but these arent' even secondary choices of things i want changed in this country , MY country , Your country! I know i don't have a point but really , what do you actually what from this administration? what do you want them to do? it doesn't matter who's side your on , they still need someone there to make sure that they don't take care of their own before us! Sorry for the rambling , i just see too many kids that will end up working their asses off 50hrs a week to make due , when they could have better oppurtunities offered to them.
They're are too parties in this system , The rich that can mostly agree (15/85) and the Not rich who are too busy fighting over points of views to get anything done!
I pray for our family and friends over their every day(even though i'm not even religious), i want them healthy and at home to raise the boys and girls , to make proud the mother and fathers, and to keep the no-good friends like me out of trouble. they deserve better than the fate the fate the voluteered to have.
yes i'm ranting and i'm sorry if it has disturbed you
Thanks dgtempe - its in speaking with people like you that I know that America is not without hope....we just have to get through the next 4 years.
