Jack is Back: Time to be honest!
A short time ago, Sen. George Allen made a racial comment that he tried to explain away. His explanation was about as weak as you could imagine. He claimed he didn't know where the word came from and that he is not sure why he said it. Huh? How about just tell the truth George? Tell us that as a kid your Mom and Dad used that word all the time and you actually never understood what it meant. Now that you said it, and people have told you what it means you should tell them the truth. Your a dork and it should cost you your seat. As the commercial says, " People judge you by the words you use". You lose!
Having said that, how about the rhetoric from the Democrat's this election season. If we elect the Democrats we will have lower gas prices along with less dependency on foreign oil. How is that possible so soon? If we elect them they will fix Health care so that every American has coverage. How is that possible in a free market? They gonna force insurance companies to provide health care to anyone that applies to them at no cost? Or are they going to institute a Government run health care program? If so, then how do they intend on paying for it? Who is going to manage it? Imagine the cost to manage a program like that let alone the annual cost to maintain the health care rolls. Do you force Doctors to take less money, yet still have to pay huge insurance premiums for E and O coverage? As it stands now we are losing Doctors left and right because of the costs to run an operation and costs they incur to pay for litigation and malpractice insurance. Trial lawyers support the Democrat party, I wonder why? Seems like hypocrisy to me. ( I spelled it correct Chris. lol ).
How about the War's? They are going to bring all the troops home or as they now say position them "outside" the hostile zones and be ready to come in with-in a moments notice. Ok, so where ya put them? Saudi Arabia? Kuwait, UAE? According to UBL, having US troops stationed in their holy lands is why they are so damn mad at us to begin with. So where exactly is the " zone", Nebraska? Detroit? That's effective. Well, maybe the Detroit part is.
Lastly, as Robert Kennedy Jr. has claimed, George Bush has single handedly turned back the fight on global warming by 50 years. His crowd claim's that if in office they will sign the Kyoto protocol and start to reverse the damage he has done. How? Read that darn thing. We would have to close all refineries, coal plants ( read electric generating plants here ) and cut down on vehicle emissions. Do they understand that an economy runs on fuel? What exactly will we replace these sources of energy with? Nuclear? Well that would just bring out a whole new batch of ticked off people now wouldn't it! Or since they would be in power would that then be ok? Anyone but them attitude?
I am not a scientist, by far to be sure. But when I read all that I can on the subject I see one thing that no one discusses. Yes, CO 2 is a culprit in the greenhouse effect, but the largest culprit is water vapor according to every scientist. How do we fight humidity? What if we go to hydrogen vehicles? Isn't the by-product of hydrogen water? Seems like that would be the biggest threat to global warming.
Ok, so lets recap. If we elect the Democrats we will have No War, Health Care for everyone, Stop and reverse Global warming, and eliminate the need for foreign oil by making our own or doing something else they wont tell us about. Seems GREAT!!!! I'm a Democrat at heart for sure then. I want all the above and want it NOW! But, at what cost will this all be, if possible....................
How about some of the highest taxes in the history of the world. How about drilling for oil everywhere on US soil ( That's the only way to reduce dependence on foreign oil today ), how about building a wall around the entire USA and every time there is a problem in the world we ignore it and just tell the UN or whom ever that its "Not our Problem". How about another 50 nuclear power plants spread out all over the country. Net result would be the biggest depression in the history of the world. Imagine the unemployment rate if we where to do these things. There would not be enough people making enough money to pay all those tax's so they would have to raise tax's again and again and again. That would have a great impact on what's left of our economy don't you think?
Ya see, lies are lies. Whether its a goofy guy from Virginia claiming the unbelievable all the way to the talking heads from the Democrat party saying that George Bush and the Republicans are responsible for everything that's wrong with this world and by electing them they will fix it all and make us utopian perfect.
This is what is wrong with politics. Say ANYTHING to get elected. I think we are all smarter then these folks give us credit for. I'm voting for Steve Allen, not George Allen.
