    mccain is running unchallenged for the most part, right now. Once it’s one on one, it will be exposed how uneducated he is about the economy and American life. They will wipe up the floor with him……I’m certain of it….just wait and see.

    I read the article where Bush asked Congress to reconsider the Columbia Trade Agreement or United States can not be trusted to support our Allies….What about supporting the American people…….

    Can’t you envision it?
    There are Millions of unemployed, American citizens, if we all got together on the white house lawn and were chanting,
    The Senator even said “He’s not King George, he’s President George”

    If they keep it up riots will be happening , I agree with you Illinois, I saw where more robberies have been taking place and people killing themselves. Why has this country turned their back on their own people.

    Maybe that is why Halliburton is building all of the detention camps across the country. They know what is comming

    Well, just saw the posting on careerbuilder for an interview I have next Wednesday. I’ve been working with a recruiter for over a month on this position and she has already sent 3 people with over 20 years experience, that they rejected. Guess they’ve already decided to look elsewhere. But I’m going to stay positive anyway. Most places generally post on all sites, but I’ve been looking everyday…and today, after over a month,…there it is!!!

    20 Years of experiences?
    Dang, talk about picky!
    Seems like most of the companies are getting that way.
    Good luck to you

    People are spending more time watching Crap on T.V. instead of paying attention to how they are getting shafted.People go to the internet to download songs instead of watching and reading the affairs of the Country and how it is going to affect them , Most fools that are going to get the stimulus check will go buy something they don’t need , ours of course will go to feed our families.

    Unfortunately that’s probably true. It doesn’t get their attention until it effects them directly.
    Again, unfortunately, it won’t be long before more and more people are DIRECTLY effected.

    It is happening all over. Crime is skyrocketing. About that post about the detention camps, it is true. A wile back I researched them and found the Halliburton contract to build them and I looked at some on Google Earth. There is supposed to be over 600 of them. I wonder what the hell they plan on using them for. Google it and you will find tons of info.

  • Patriots 04/19/2008 7:33am

    We have become a county of sheep it seems.

  • CApe 04/19/2008 7:39am

    Detention camps for influx or natural disasters. Right!!!!


  • Anonymous 04/19/2008 7:43am

    Here is some more info on them, http://www.truthout.org/cgi-bin/artman/exec/view.cgi/47/17936

  • Patriots 04/19/2008 7:49am

    Maybe that is their plan for all off the millions of homeless starving people that we will have soon, us included. Is that why Bush says we don’t need a unemployment extension? Because he already has a plan?
