And once again the American people get screwed without being kissed first! So someone tell me again what the real difference between the Democrats and the Republicans are? Because I don't see it with this slap in the face!

Let's see how she does as the Speaker of the House, before we try to elevate her to Sainthood, okay???

Not trying to start a fight, but there are people here already putting the "they've failed" stamp on this new session of Congress, or trying to beatify them.

Let's see what happens with the 100 Hour plan, and then let's see how they've done after the first 6 months?

I have grown children who have children of their own, so I will stay because they do not have the means to leave, also if it comes down to a fight, then I'd rather be here to fight for what I believe
in.

In WWII, German Jews did leave Germany, unfortunately they didn't get far enough away, those that were able to escape to other Western European countries, just got picked up when those countries were invaded by Germany.

Even if you and others leave, what makes you think that a US dictatorship won't start invading other countries to the north and south to secure it's borders and to bring the Americas under one roof. Then just like the Jews, you and your family will be rounded up and placed in some camp or holding area, and the results will be the same, only you will have lost everything without even being able to
put up a fight.

Those men that helped to create this country had wives and children as well, they held property, and yet they were willing to give it all up for a belief, and in some cases they did lose everything including their lives.

If something is worth having, then it has to be worth fighting for. How will you explain that to your child when you didn't want to fight.

As several have already stated, you don't need anyone's permission, you have to do what you think is
right for you and yours.

If they start with this, when will it stop? I never had any problems with my state drivers license while I was in the military.

Let the states decide on their own, and not under threat from the federal government.

If you and others are willing to give up on this, how much more will you be willing to give up so that you can have some false sense of security or whatever it is you're advocating?


The things that need federal standards, like clean air, drinking water, and land, are the things that
the federal government are trying to do away with.

Personally I don't trust the federal government as much as you seem to.

I guess she must be Gollum, right before he fell into the molten lava of Mt. Doom. Come to think of it she does look a little like him, especially around the lips.

When they came for the Chinese illegal immigrants,
I did nothing, for I wasn't Chinese, illegal, or an immigrant

You can guess how the rest goes

But based on Bush's concept of pre-emptive war, Japan was well within its rights to attack the US.

After all the US was responsible for cutting off important resources like oil and rubber, which they
defined as an attack, and so they were acting in self defense.
