Some of these people we elect were raised and taught that the Earth is only 6,000 years old -- and that you can fit all the World's animals on a boat.

SMH

I'm not sure who is more idiotic -- the people we elect, or the people voting?

Writting bad checks, bankrupting businesses, can`t even get credit cards because of bad credit ratings, yeah these are exactly the kind of folks we want in charge of the country`s finances.As a country we are screwed there is absolutely no hope that deadbeats like these are ever going to be able to fix this financial mess we are in. Quit your jobs now and get on the government handout gravy train,get what you can while you can because this ship is going down fast don`t be the last one to the lifeboats because there might not be any left when you get there.

My only problem with this is that it doesn't give the names!


It would be nice once and for all to break the back of the left/right paradigm so that people would realize these criminals are nothing more than two wings on the same bird..........

No no no! It wasn't against your post man, it was the people who wrote the article you referenced too.



I believe it, but my problem is why would someone write it and give numbers without including the names referenced to? I am willing to bet, you as a measly citizen, (as am I) would have a difficult time trying to get the names!

I do not in any way expect you to try to find out or even waste your time trying......
