You would have a very interesting perspective on this subject. I'll have to check out some of your other posts.

Actually I think Obama may have done this country more of a service than people think. I think that Obama, Pelosi and Reid moved too soon on their agenda. This has served to call attention to what is going on. Hopefully it is in time to correct the damage and save the country.

....That's what I'm opposed to. A dumb war. A rash war. A war based not on reason but on passion, not on principle but on politics.

Now let me be clear: I suffer no illusions about Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal man. A ruthless man. A man who butchers his own people to secure his own power.... The world, and the Iraqi people, would be better off without him. But I also know that Saddam poses no imminent and direct threat to the United States, or to his neighbors...and that in concert with the international community he can be contained until, in the way of all petty dictators, he falls away into the dustbin of history.

JIMC5499, I've made this reference's before: Some Quotes from Mao's Little Red Book: Chapter 2 --- Classes and Class Struggle.

Classes struggle, some classes triumph, others are eliminated. Such is history, such is the history of civilization for thousands of years. To interpret history from this viewpoint is historical materialism; standing in opposition to this viewpoint is historical idealism.


I firmly believe Obama and Biden and Reid and Pelosi believe in the one elite class of peoples and the rest of us are their serifs or camp followers and workers.

Chapter 4 --- The Correct Handling of Contradictions Among the People


We are confronted by two types of social contradictions -- those between ourselves and the enemy and those among the people themselves. The two are totally different in their nature. To understand these two different types of contradictions correctly, we must first be clear on what is meant by "the people" and what is meant by "the enemy." At the present stage, the period of building socialism, the classes, strata and social groups which favor, support and work for the cause of the people, while the social forces and groups which resist the socialist revolution and are hostile to or sabotage socialist construction are all enemies of the people.


Just some of the likenesses I see in the present administration and the American People. We or should I say, Most of us are not like them and we don't want to be told what to do and controlled from Cradle to Grave, but they have another idea of how your daily life should be lived.
The type of car you drive is one of those ideas and what you use for your fuel for your car and heating your home.

I didn't want to see us go into Iraq either. I still believe that we could have effected a change in Iraq's government without invading. That being said, I still believe that our main problem in Iraq was that we won too fast. There was no time to setup an infrastructure for dealing with Iraq's population after Sadam's defeat. Our second mistake was in disbanding the Iraqi Army and police forces. This created a vacuum that others were quick to fill.

Tell that to all the seniors who have paid into SS who are raising hell at the thought of it being privatized. Are they all Socialists? Or just people who see the benefit of a program tat clearly helps them avoid absolute poverty?
Until we come up with a better solution, as wonky as many programs may be, or even wrong-headed, often something is better than nothing. And 'nothing' is all the deregulators have to offer.

Anybody live in the remote town of Hana on the Hawaiian island of Maui?
If you do, I wanted to ask you,,,,, Do you believe Obama feels your pain at the pump with gas prices there being $6.03 a gallon as of today I heard

Do you really believe Obama cares about you?


How about in Death Valley at the Furnace Creek Resort, I was told by a girl friend of mine on the phone not two days ago, they are traveling in their truck and 5th wheel trailer. Gas was $5.75 a gallon there.


Obama cares, you can tell by all the drilling for our own resources here in America that's go on as we type,,, NOT!

They really need to get over all this political BS and allow us to drill our own damn oil.

I wish we can hold special elections where we vote on what to do with hot Topics.

Drill for oil in Alaska?
(X) YES
( ) NO

Stuff like that. Because our politicians are clueless as to what we acually want.

Mikeyy, Brilliant Idea, That is a Absolutely a Great Thought,,,,, You're an Average American with bills and a life to live,,,,, Not a Politician with the Tax Payers being strangled paying all their bills and filling-up their fleet of cars and trucks and paying for their mistress or stud-muffins apartment and wants and needs,,,,Lets Not Forget,,, Their Vacations! No you're a Commoner with Responsibilities to your family and not worth listen to,,, Or paying attention to until it's eletion time and now your important.
I say, FIRE THEM ALL!!!

Put in people who know, We'll Fire Them Too,,,, They need Term Limits and Earn Their Salaries, Or Your FIRED!

It should be a mandatory requirement that all Politicians live in the Middle Class or Lower Middle Class or the Poorer Neighborhoods they represent. Yes, Live, Eat, Sleep and Get Gas and send their kids to the same schools you do. Live The Dream,,,, A&&H@les

there are some people who can really understand the pain of those who suffer because some of them also came from that kind of situation of life.

toepick, OK, I think maybe you grew-up with TV, YES?
I didn't, Yes, I'm very sure I'm older than you, but even my husband who is a little older than me, remembers watching TV until it went off at night and the American Flag or Indian Head With Feathers came on at 11:00pm or midnight and NO, he wasn't a child at the time.

I hadn't even seen a TV until 1980 when I came home for a visit and it was a 13 inch black and white, our neighbor had two floors up in their apartment.
You have to remember, even though my father work in our Government and my mother was a University Professor, we're issued our homes and much of what we had in our homes, earnings was small and only payed for maybe 2 pound bag rice and two chickens and vegetables every two weeks.

Yes, TV was interduced into China in about 1958, The first broadcast includes a 10 minute report on Labor Day, with a model workers report on production outputs and a documentary called "Go to the Countryside" showing Communist officials working with farmers and other segments include cultural programs, dance and poetry readings, and a Soviet program.

There was only one channel, which went on the air a few times a week, for two to three hours beginning at 7:00 PM. The black-and-white broadcasts consisted of news, documentaries, entertainment and educational materials, and reached only the Beijing area. Initially, there were only 50 television sets, for use by Government Officials!!!!
The first news item produced by the Beijing TV Station, was a report on China's success in making its own cars. Its first newsreel covered the Red Flag, the Party's theoretical journal. News consisted mostly of still photos, text, and talking heads, along with news documentaries.

TV dramas were also produced, with heavy political tones Loike this, "A Bite of Cabbage Cake" contrasted life under the Nationalists before 1949 with life under the Communists. It was broadcast live, I don't think you would want to eat Cabbage Cake on Live TV!!!


I was raised in Harbin, 24 hour train ride North from Beijing. No TV For us.
This is something you don't know,

TV stations were under tight control: Between 1967 and 1976, the only so-called "entertainment programs" shown on Chinese television were eight revolutionary model operas. A British broadcaster, who happened to visit China in 1970, found, much to his surprise, that within a 26-minute principal evening news broadcast by the Beijing TV Station, 18 minutes were devoted to rolling captions of Chairman Mao's quotations against a background of music praising Mao.

Chairman Mao's quotations is known as The Little Red Book, You Had To KNOW That Book and Have it On You Always!!!
Here's something else you would never see in a Western Nation: In 1966,

With the Cultural Revolution, China's TV service comes to a standstill. Beijing TV Station announced:


In answer to Chairman Mao's call that "you people should be concerned about the important affairs of our country and should carry out the Great Cultural Revolution to its full extent," we have decided to launch a general, all-out offensive on a tiny handful of inner-Party power holders who have been taking the capitalist road. As a result, from January 3, 1967 on, this station will suspend normal broadcasting service except on important matters and occasions

I'm sorry I could go on about marching in parades and singing songs for the Destruction of America and for our Atomic Bombs to Fall on your Cities, but I have Hijacked my thread and change the topic, I hope the MODS don't get upset.

Lady,I just became a fan of yours.

I have had MANY older people who have grown up in totalitarian countries of the Eastern block say to me the exact same thing.

I used to be amazed at the ignorant people who were calling Republicans fascists as if they knew what the term was.

The problem is most of the voting public in the U.S. is very ignorant and vote for a person based on his or her looks.

Every person of authority in this country is a Socialist.

Look at all the Czars( I shutter at the use of that term) Obama has appointed.

If some how we the people remove this man and his minions from power this country may survive.

But I doubt it will happen.

I wish some times I had not had children.

They will become old in a very different society than I had the privilege of living in.

IamJustanAmerican, 1966 The Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution and Yes, I was there!
I'm not in this video your about to watch, But it was mandatory that we all had to memorize the song.
This was about:

China has announced It's Cultural Revolution and that by reorganizing the current small farming collectives into great communes workers would be released to work in industry.

And many in my family died because of this that followed, Famine and many went to re-education camps because they themselves were highly educated in Science and mathematics.

With the Cultural Revolution came persecution of radical students and teachers and colleges were effectively closed down, and Chairman Mao also used the time to purge his rivals. A bi-product of the Cultural Revolution was that grain output declined leading to the country's largest famine in history.

I don't believe Obama feels my Pain or Your Pain,,,, He has not had to work a day in his life that I know of, he did not Actually Walk 8 Kilometers one-way to school, I did! Has Obama ever, missed meals so the family next door to you could eat because their husband and father was out of work due to an injury?
Has Obama ever share a kitchen with 4 other families or the same bathroom and shower?
Has Obama ever walked to school in the winter, our winters are on average. -15 below.
Did Obama wash his clothes on a wash-board in a tin wash bucket and dry his clothes on a stem radiator?
Obama is a Fake Person, in China we call him a Non-Spirit, or Non-Person.
Still waiting for the release of,,,, Obama's Little Red Book!

Umm, we DO drill for our own oil. Even in Alaska. And have for decades. But i'm curious why you think drilling even more is a good long term solution. What do we do when it runs out if we dont save any?
