    Government organizations

    I just found out some things on what the government's doing. No wonder
    people are mad at our president. I will tell you why after your response.

    Lets be careful and not start a laundry list of foibles, faults, and fallacies that will be misused once again as we have seen in the past. My Aunt May from Sweden once told me: *If you have nothing good to say about a country then don't say it*.
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    The FBI,CIA, and Homeland Security is having President Bush to keep
    his mouth shut on a lot of things. I found it on a you tube video.
    He wanted to warn us of a terrorist who is here in the US who has
    access to the atomic bomb and plays with guns. But his speech was
    censored by the government. That is the reason why Mr. Bush will
    play with words when asked any questions. He wants to do a good
    job and the government won't let him. Now that's sad isn't it?

    It's not all the president's fault ya know ... Congress is as much to blame, as they are the ones who create the (f)laws, and vote themselves raises every year.

    It was a Democratic president who vetoed drilling for oil in Alaska - Thanks to Mr. Clinton, we have these insanely high gas prices, where if that bill had passed 10 years ago, we would not be so dependent on foreign oil.

    I only have to fill-up every three weeks - each time I go, the cost has risen 28 cents ... with record "all time" profits being claimed by Exxon/Mobil ... appears the government has their hand in this, too.

    That is very true Krummhorn. The government will even assassinate the
    president to keep him silent. Remember what happened to Kennedy in
    the year 1963. I was three years old at the time. People blame it on
    Johnson and the others blame it on Oswald. I don't think so. Someone
    was there to shut him up with a bullet. Now President Bush has a fight
    on his hands with the congress and the rest of the government. They
    will sit there and argue with each other. I watched it on C-span one
    day. This is what makes him look so bad.

    Afraid, we're already sorry
    Too much damage has already been done, and not just from the present administration nor just from the White House. Congress and the Senate themselves are just at much at fault.

    Our kids today will possibly never have what we adults have ... a paid off mortgage and financial security. The distinct possibility is that by the time my son, now age 21, gets to retirement, there will be no monthly social security income, even though he is required, by law, to contribute towards that. Imagine all the lawsuits against the government in about 45 years - I won't be around for those, thank goodness.

    And 45% of working-age Americans are employed by Government and/or in the Government feed trough. No wonder that there is no wealth creation in America. Government does not sell a marketable service - it consumes taxpayer dollars to fund everybody on Government payroll.

    Pretty soon everybody will serve the Government - which is the antithesis of what the Founding Fathers of this Nation envisioned. Refer to the quote in my signature - we will soon be in thrall to the Government - Slavery will then be upon us. Americans will be like the Israelites in the Egyptian Bondage.

    I would be willing to wager on that bet, CD ... We will all become employees of the government and will be told when to wipe our noses and where. So much for democracy - but it isn't going to happen within my lifetime ... I bet our country forefathers are rolling over in their graves right now.

    So true. Here and now these school kids are having to live by the same stupid dress
    code as we did with a difference. Thanks to the ACLU. I wished they would go and
    play somewhere and let these school kids wear what they wished as long as it is
    modest. A school here has the stupid rule where kids aren't allowed to wear anything
    that is print. They can't wear holiday prints or anything like that. Believe me the
    schools would have a time with our generation where everything was either print or
    psycodellic.
