I have to apologize for my rants, normally I just pay, keep it on the down low... when I watch the politics on TV i start getting ticked because its not fair & balanced news reporting.
I like John because he never sold out his country, and of course it my counrty too, I was born here, I got my SS number when I was a kid, my first job I made $1.75 per hour at minimum wage
I paid my own way thru school, same for my wife. I hear people talk about their parents giving them money for a house, paying for their edu.. etc.... Boittom line, I had to work the good old fasion way, hard work.
>>>1st of all John is a traitor to his county. he was given an early release from captivity for GIVING UP
>>>Military Secrets. Also you sound just like obama. he worked his way all the way to harvard on his
>>>own and then to grad school all on his own just like his wife did. then after that he became a
>>>community organizer to help his detriot community where he lived which was not suburbia infact quite
>>>the opposite. you make it out like you're better and more of an american? maybe i'm reading to far
The problem I have with Barack (not sure on spelling) is that he is a lawyer. I've seen the picture of him and the Hillary-witch standing in front of the American flag... everyone with their hands on their harts except Obama, he thinks its a violation of his rights to be expected to put his hand over his hart while listening to the nations greatest song. I just don't get that??? call it "my bad" but i just don't get it.
>>>it is a violation of his rights...? he doesn't have too. just google it. just because i don't get on my knees or >>>hold my hands claps does it mean i'm praying wrong?
He never served in the US armed forces. Why not? Lawyers don't have too? or is it a violation of their rights to serve for their country...
>>>you can serve your country by more ways then by serving in the army. in a hell of alot more ways. he
>>>educated himself, worked for the people...decided to not join an army lead by old bitter men, who
>>>take commands from other old bitter men. not to take anything away from the men in our military they are >>>doing a great job and i thank them. but educating yourself, helping your fellow american, etc is just as >>>patriotic imo.
Sarah Palin has written more bills then Obama has, actually Obama has never written a bill. I think she'* more qualified to be the VP then Obama is qualified to be the prez...
>>>you'd rather have palin vs obama???? you do realize there is a reason obama is for prez vs her right?
>>>again i can't honestly understand how anyone things she is suitable for the role.
i don't think John is the best fit for the prez but he'* the best of the two when choosing between the two candidates because he believes in his country and he'* not interested in getting rich, he'* already set FWIW. He'* willing to do it for the greater good of the country.
>>>by that do you mean: To “occupy Iraq for 100 years”, “bomb Iran”, and “just keep Afghanistan”.
Obama... I can't figure it out, what can he do besides tax me more, give it to people like my in-laws who don't come to visit because they don't have money for gas. they hate me because I have a job.
>>>uhhh? he Veto'd of bush tax cuts on the middle class. you know the middle class what you and I are.
>>>McCain wants to extend the Bush tax cuts on special interest and big business(which may be good
>>>or bad but mainly bad imo because who and why get the tax breaks). Obama'* been proposing new
>>>spending for health care, wants to boost taxes on wealthier Americans.
That excuse was fine 17 years ago when I married my wife but after all these years they still haven't done squat with their lives.. but i still pay my taxes and I also paid for a share of their 4 childerns hospital bills because they still don't have jobs with medical. That sucks for them too.. i guess.. I would imagine, somehow the bills do get paid and that really beggs the question, how do they pay their doctor bills?
some people born poor stay poor. others rise. i feel sorry for your inlaws. have you tried to help them be better Christians and help them achieve both financially and spiritually?
I'm all for re-newable power resources, I'd love to be involved in new technology, that'* why I'm in my industry right now anyway, i want to be part of the future.
>>>great. me too man i know EXACTLY how you feel. the sooner the better the fact we ship millions and
>>>millions of american money into the arab states and the rest into china we'll be in alot better shape.
>>>we don't make anything in america anymore. which means we have to be the 1st and best in
>>>techonology and innovation.
So I submitt to you that I am totally on the fence with the energy issues.
>>>understandably. both dems and reps have failed on this issue. kinda like when ever there is a major
>>>problem in america america just stagenates on it: heathcare, alt. energy, wars.
I like the idea of being the last nation standing with oil.
>>>i like the idea to be the 1st nation off oil. not requiting it and destroying our environment and our
I like the idea of drilling American oil because its a bridge to get the US into the new technologies without going broke on foreign oil supply.
>>>possibly. i like the idea of keeping it incase the world runs out we can be the last to have it. gives us
>>>a HUGE power and leverage over other people.
Bio-diesel smells, I don't like the smell. why can't we just move forward. The confusion for me is, why are we doing nearly nothing. just because we don't know the approach doesn't don't make a move. Let'* start trying new stuff. let'* try and fail, how many inventions are made from mistakes anyway? let'* go make some mistakes.
>>>just like i was saying america seems to stagnate on these major issues instead of moving forward AT
>>>ALL. healthcare, energy, environment, oil dependence, etc. etc.
Let'* build some nuke plants, then develope the more efficiant reactor. wouldn't it be great if we could use more then 5% of the rods at those nuke plants? I think so.
>>>I'm all about more nuke plants. but as you said we REALLY need to build more efficient* reactors. >>>Did you know only Nixon polled worse then Bush junior? and now we are looking at electing this guy: >>>McCain Voted with the Bush Administration 89 Percent of the Time. Since President Bush took >>>office, McCain has supported Bush’* positions 89 percent of the time. McCain’* support of Bush’* >>>policies reached as high as 95 percent in 2007. [Congressional Quarterly Voting Study, 110th >>>Congress]
With alkl the mechanical energy in water, it will make some awesome engines wen the day'* all done.
Did you know that with solar we can only capture 18% of the energy from the sun, wouldn't it be more efficiant to capture 80% of the energy. we can only capture the IR band, nothing from the color spectrum. We can transfer heat for our swimming pools thou-
>>>i agree. interestingly enough a kid developed a way using nano tubes to RADICALLY increase their
>>>efficiency rating. it'* already heavily invested in and i can't wait fro the results. assuming they make
>>>these at close to the 65% as they are hoping for and cheap i'd line my roof. hello paychecks from the
>>>energy company when i start feeding back into their grid!
Sorry about the colorfull conversation, FWIW, I'm registered to vote and I will.
