It's all useless, apparently. Yes, I love Jesus, but I know that I (and anyone else) will never get anything back for that. Don't be too pragmatic, my Christian friends. At the end you will be all together with Muslims, Buddhists and Atheists in the same place, wherever it is.
Though I always appreciate a good word or a link to my site.

Ted Turner called Bush a reformed alcoholic. Can he prove that Bush actually reformed? He looks like a victim of abortion with brain damage complications most of the time…
Thanks Ted for supporting the president!

Gutierrez, secretary of commerce, is bullying China that protectionist measures will damage China much more than United States. Those measures could be applied if trade deficit is not reduced.
I'm sorry, Gutierrez, it's China who holds us by the balls, not vice versa. If tariffs are introduced, it's our economy that will slump, not Chineese. It will be 1973 in best case, 1929 in worst case. Let see the simple sequence of events.
The lack of cheap import will trigger inflation, which will make Bernanke to go ballistic and raise rates over 6%, which will just destroy the housing market at current prices. During the slide back to 1995 real estate prices all the construction business will flop, personal consumption decrease by huge amounts and stock market retreat back to 2002. The bad investment climate will stop capital inflows and make us live by what we earn. The borrowing spree will stop and both corporate and personal finances will force us to dramatically reduce the consumption. In other words, the quality of life will decrease a lot. You will see unemployment, crime, drugs and rock'n'roll all around.
And one of the main problems is the lack of brains in Washington, from the president Bush himself, who is a total idiot to the last Gutierrez.

The recent facts only supported what I was saying for months: Bush was determined to invade Iraq even as he knew that Saddam had no WMD. He went as far as suggesting to provoke the war by "painting an American U-2 in UN colors and flying it over Iraqi gun emplacements hoping to draw fire and trigger a war". My statements were opposed by a small herd of bushlicking rednecks, from other blogs and in comments in my blog, but time brings only more and more proves that I was right. But I never can tell those brainwashed from those malice. Can you help me?

Few days ago the "Simply put" show on Bloomberg radio rose this question again: Tom Moroney argued that leaving Iraq will slide that country into blood bath; Michael Goldman called to remove most forces except those that will protect Kurds. While I see valid points in both sides, I
have to disagree with both. While I clearly understand that the real reasons of this war are not WMD and terrorists, but oil, I call to stick with our official
position, which calls us “liberators” and not “occupants”.
Iraq has now its own elected parliament, which is supposed to be responsible for the country future. Should we ask first this college of representatives about the future of American forces in their country and deliver the answer to the American public? Should we also conduct public polls
to get the answer on the question if Iraqi public regards us as liberators or occupants, and what they expect us to do to be more liberators and less occupants? And just to lift the concerns of the liberals (as myself) that we (thanks to right wing and m**rfucker Bush) came to Iraq for oil, should we make
all steps to return the control over oil fields back to Iraqis?
I have similar accusations toward left wing as well. Why do I see photos of Cindy Sheehan with the 2245 number on her T-shirt? Are her boobs too small to fit the number of 100,000 (or something like that) dead Iraqis, choked with the democracy we had showed into their throats? Are they,
according to Sheehan, second-grade animals, not worth counting in their mass graves? If we just leave right now, will the Iraqi civil war sink the country into bloodbath, which we can and must prevent? And if another 2245 Americans have to die – its their duty and our responsibility is just to train them better and deploy wisely.
What I want to see is the Iraqi representatives, and not Rumsfeld and Sheehan, to decide should we leave or should we stay, and if we stay – where exactly we should stay and how exactly we should behave.

The news release at realtor.org says market is stable. Should we look at the numbers instead?
The median price of existing homes fell from its maximum of $220k last August to $209k in February. If you take into account 1% iflation it would be 6% price decrease. Some places do better, like Northeast, where prices increased. But that is offset by obvious sell-off on the West, where the $26k price decline from last November spells over 8% decline in just three months, inflation adjusted. You call it the boost? I call it sell-off.
I rather view that as a positive sign. The economy is not too bad now, and global prospectives are positive. It might be a good thing to take the hit now, which probably will not bounce us into recession. When the change is propagated down the food chain the economy will have enough speed to change the focus from brick an mortar business to energy efficiency, solar and wind power plants, fuel cells and stuff like that. People will borrow less and save more, which could also mean than more of national debt will stay home.
Do you still own that second vacation home?

There is a picture posted on Internet all around the place showing the man very similar to Bush-father, then undercover cia operative, right on the spot during Kennedy assassination. Posts here and here claim that George Bush does not recall where exactly he was at that moment, due to foggy memory.
Stop for a moment and think. Suppose a person at the bus station or cachier in the shop tells you – “President of United States was murdered an hour ago”. And then, few years later, someone asks you about your whereabout at that moment. And you just don’t remember. You totally forgot. It’s like that moment is not imprinted into your memory like a dinasaur step in the stone. Like it is not one of the most memorable moments in your life.
Can you beleive that? I can’t.
If you want something interesting to read for years to come, just bookmark the Google search “George Bush November 1963“, show this link to your kids and visit it every time you ask yourself the question “how this world works”. It should inspire you.
