The idiot-in-chief is doing this solely for political gain.
He wants to paint the repukes as the party that came to the rescue. These are essentially swing voters for whom this program is designed to help.
I am truly saddened and sorry for the people caught up in this, but they entered into a legally binding contract willingly. When someone buys a house or a car with a substantial loan, it is incumbent on that person to make the correct decision on a finance arrangement that can be maintained. I'm no conservative, but it is not the role of a public government to intervene in a contractual agreement that was not deceptive nor unfair.
The past R.E. boom was ultimately just another fictitious product of the current administration to begin with.
Like all of the other outrages that this moron has caused, he is positioning himself as the only one who can fix all of the things that he broke in the first place.
This is yet another dangerous precedent that this fool is setting.

9-11 could have and should have been prevented.
They had credible information that was either ignored or discounted.
Compounding this was the complete incompetence of airport security at that time (I suspect at this time as well) and their inability to stop the alleged hijackers from boarding. All of us who have to travel on airliners are paying the price for this now with the current idiotic regulations.
ALL of this has happened since the current administration was appointed.

I heard the title statement recently and your thoughtful post reinforced that idea to me.
Forget about the past, we really can't do anything about it. But don't we want something more?
As a species, don't we want to evolve and grow ?
We all come from inherent prejudice. Take that misplaced energy and hate the hate.
Thanks for the book tip!

...and that was to ruin the labor movement.
I don't think for a minute that corporate America would entertain any objective that would cut into their profits (even short-term) and their absolute control of employees.
I also believe that that philosophy is short-sighted. In many cases, unions would help productivity and efficiency.
Unfortunately, the model most feared in the auto industry. No, it wasn't the lack of innovation, poor quality, and an absolute disregard for the market demand that hurt the auto industry, it was the unions!

First, let me set the record straight by saying I am firmly a Labor Union supporter, but not a member of any.
But what amazes me to this day is working people, be them blue-collar or others, parroting the Great Republican lie that Unions are bad for the country.
This misinformation campaign, which has been in full gear for decades, has been enormously effective.
Now in 2006 America, we have little wage escalation for hourly workers with professional workers sucked into the 50+hour work week under the myth of productivity.
Vacations are few and far between - indeed many workers are so immersed in the work culture (or too broke) that they don't even take the vacations that they did earn!
Unions brought the U.S. safe working conditions, a 40 hour work week, benefits, vacations, paid time off, and pensions. They also brought America a world-class work force when America commanded respect for the goods produced here.
Now we have deteriorating working conditions, a 50+ hour work week, reduced benefits at best, no vacations, and greatly diminished pensions.
Progress is record corporate profits, no innovation in manufacturing, and a "global" economy (good for the U.S. when we get to exploit poorer nations for their workforce).
I'm in management. I would prefer a union workforce: Proud, competent, and enjoying a fair share of the pie.
Of course, we couldn't compete like that in the current economy.

According to a story in today's WSJ, Repukes are actually wishing for a full recovery for the great bearded one. Why?
Because they fear a huge migration to the U.S. rivaling the infamous Mariel days when the doors are finally swung open.
...and that, my friends, can't be good for the Jebster.
On the positive side for the American Nazi party, Cubans are more likely to vote republican (they can relate??!), but their votes are not considered automatic.

No problem with the government listening in on phone calls if it keeps me safe.
No problem with moronic draconian checkpoints at the airline gate if it keeps me safe.
No problem stripping and bending over if it keeps me safe.
No problem with cancelling the elections if it keeps me safe.
No problem with installing a one party system if it keeps me safe.
No problem curtailing my freedom if it keeps me safe.
No problem at all when I have no choice.

In my sweetest dreams, I envision some enterprising journalist nailing the string of fake terrorism alerts to the administration's directives.

SOmeday, in my most optimistic hopes, this will happen.

The biggest lie is increasingly accepted as fact these days: Iraq.
I'd be willing to bet that most Americans accept the Iraq debacle as a legitimate part of the fictional "war on terror".

Once Lieberman lost (as he should of), the dogs were released.
The AM TV shows were ready with their Rovian analysis of the shift to the left (in their words) for the Democratic party.
"soft on terror: was a phrase heard and read many times.

I am absolutely convinced that this "liquid lunacy" was all staged.

You remember, don't you? The memo: "Bin Laden determined to attack inside the U.S."??
You know, the one that Condaliar misplaced in her pile of unread Cosmo's??

This administration's gross imcompetance led to the conditions that caused 9/11.

That's why flying has become ridiculously inconvenient. We all have absurd stories about our experiences in airports lately, I'm sure - I know I do.

This so-called alert is, IMO, a Rovian ploy to turn a lemon into lemonade.

Want it to go away? Stop flying. I know it's very difficult, but if enough people turned their backs on this sort of nonsense, we would have compentant security and safe travel.

Did you see the pictures of the bins and bins of "contreband" seized at the gates in the past few days? Does ANY of this stuff really cause a security problem?? NO!

Incompentance at it's highest degree of disruption of normalcy.

Folks, it's going to get worse before it gets better. That's what we have in place of a government these days.

In light of the ABC News debacle, please offer a true patriotic response to this poll.

So far, it's doing good.
