Mr. Hageman I must agree with your statement about "tough times". My parents talked about rationing during the war. Many things that we take for granted were not available during that period. While living in Europe I spent a lot of free time researching what life was like for them during the war. It would make you hair stand on end!

If you want an example of how well the federal government can take care of people just look to the American Indian. What a success story that is!

No MotorSports liberals are in control of our education system. Of coarse you knew that but it is much "cooler" to be snarky. Liberals, you know, people that like to stomp on our flag and say "It is just a piece of cloth". As a veteran I find this really offensive.

Star: Western European countries still have the trade school/college prep type curriculum. Around junior high school they are evaluated and counseled to provide them a positive direction based on their individual abilities and interests. In the Netherlands they have legislation in place to make loans easy for individuals to start their own business. One or two man companies are very common. So people that go the trade school route can borrow money to buy equipment to start a business as a painter, bridge welder etc. The government strongly supports this type of enterprise because it has less people on the dole.

MotorSports is bashing the GOP for our failing education system. An education system that is "owned" by the liberals in our country but it is somehow the GOP's fault.

Mr. Lind says: The immanent demise of what is left of the middle class is what has created income inequality.

Mr. Lind I believe the word you are looking for is imminent, not immanent. They mean different things and in your context imminent is correct.

When you have built your reputation on lies and deception is a really long road back.
Chelsea was jogging around the Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. (She was in bed watching it on TV.)
Hillary was named after Sir Edmund Hillary. (She admitted she was wrong. He climbed Mt. Everest five years after her birth.)
She was under sniper fire in Bosnia. (A girl presented her with flowers at the foot of the ramp.)
She learned in The Wall Street Journal how to make a killing in the futures market. (It didn't cover the market back then.)
She didn't know about the FALN pardons.
She didn't know that her brothers were being paid to get pardons that Clinton granted.
Taking the White House gifts was a clerical error.
She didn't know that her staff would fire the travel office staff after she told them to do so. She didn't know that the Peter Paul fundraiser in Hollywood in 2000 cost $700,000 more than she reported it had.
She opposed NAFTA at the time.
She was instrumental in the Irish peace process.
She urged Bill to intervene in Rwanda.
She played a role in the '90s economic recovery.
The billing records showed up on their own.
She thought Bill was innocent when the Monica scandal broke.
She was always a Yankees fan.
She had nothing to do with the New Square Hasidic pardons (after they voted for her 1,400-12 and she attended a meeting at the White House about the pardons).
She negotiated for the release of refugees in Macedonia (who were released the day before she got there).
