  1. This article is boring, so let’s start a political debate. KERRY FOR PREZ! Bush is a neo-Nazi spendthrift crazy bigot man!! Yeah, you conservative right-wing jackals– BRING IT ON!!!!

  2. Al, what? Please tell me you just left off the winky face of your message. Every one of the products named by sjk is correctly spelled, and while his phrase may not be a complete sentence, it’s perfectly intellgible.

  3. Very interesting….. and a bit scary

    At about the time our original 13 states adopted their new constitution, in the year 1787, Alexander Tyler (a Scottish history professor at The University of Edinborough) had this to say about “The Fall of The Athenian Republic” some 2,000 years prior.

    “A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury.

    From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship.”

    “The average age of the worlds greatest civilizations from the beginning of history has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

    From Bondage to spiritual faith;
    From spiritual faith to great courage;
    From courage to liberty;
    From liberty to abundance;
    From abundance to complacency;
    From complacency to apathy;
    From apathy to dependence;
    From dependence back into bondage.”

    Professor Joseph Olson of HamlineUniversitySchoolof Law, St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the most recent Presidential election:

    Population of counties won by:
    Gore = 127 million
    Bush = 143 million

    Square miles of land won by:
    Gore = 580,000
    Bush = 2,2427,000

    States won by:
    Gore = 19
    Bush = 29

    Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by:
    Gore = 13.2
    Bush = 2.1

    Professor Olson adds: “In aggregate, the map of the territory Bush won was mostly the land owned by the tax-paying citizens of this great country. Gore’s territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in government-owned tenements and living off government welfare…”

    Olson believes the now somewhere between the “complacency and “apathy” phase of Professor Tyler’s definition of democracy; with some 40 percent of the nation’s population already having reached the “governmental dependency” phase.

    Pass this along to help everyone realize just how much is at stake in this Election Year and that apathy is the greatest danger to our freedom.

  4. Observations by an Air Force Pilot.
    I’m confident that in approximately 15 minutes this article will be in the inboxes of every resident of the free world and maybe even a few people in France. Chris Thomas, Air Force Pilot: I would like to add my two cents about my John Kerry experience. During my career as an Air Force pilot, I spent two years flying a small twin engine prop plane around the Pacific from my base in Okinawa, Japan. On one trip we had to fly Senator Kerry, his congressional aide, and a Navy Captain (Vietnam, A-4 fighter pilot) who was also in Kerry’s party to various locations in Vietnam and Cambodia as part of the MIA/POW talks. When I met him, he was wearing a shirt with a picture of his sailboat on it. I told him I had a 27′ sailboat in Okinawa, he remarked “Oh I never sail on anything less than 135 feet.” Thanks, Senator, “I feel even better about the meager salary I get paid for flying you around the Pacific.” When we first flew him into Phnom Penh, he went to the back of the airplane and grabbed the pizza that was put aside for the crew and passed it around to his staff. He was never offered any pizza because they were supposed to have lunch with the Cambodian government when we landed. The pizza was the crew’s only meal for that day and he ate it. Then when we picked him up in Cambodia, he was an hour late getting to the airport. Because fuel was an issue, we could not start the engines and therefore the air conditioning until he arrived. Phnom Penh at that time was over 100 degrees with 95% humidity and we were basically sitting in a greenhouse behind the cockpit windows. When he finally did arrive, we were wringing out our clothes from the perspiration. He walks out of the air conditioned car, into the airplane and asks us “Could you guys get the air-conditioning running, I’m a little warm?” The other pilot had to physically restrain me from going back there and picking a fight. Then we took him into Noi Bai airfield in Hanoi. After we picked him up the next day (he stayed the night in Vietnam, we stayed in Bangkok) we taxied out, ran up the engines for take off and noticed that our prop rpm was vibrating all over the place.

  5. We taxied off to the side to look at it, but there was a good possibility that there was an engine malfunction and the engine may fail if we took off with it. Well, Mr. Senator sticks his head up in the cockpit and says “This plane WILL take off, I have a press conference in Bangkok in three hours!” (Maybe this is an indication of how he will run the FAA). American service members lives be damned, we had our Senatorial orders. We ran the engines again, and did not have the problem, so we took off and made it back. During the flight, he told everyone how he had taken a Cessna (a small General aviation plane)up with a fighter pilot, and the fighter pilot remarked that Kerry was one of the best pilots he had ever seen. I don’t know about other pilots out there,but it’s hard to imagine a little, single-engine prop plane pilot being able to show the “right stuff.” After Kerry left the plane, the Navy Captain came up to us, apologized and said basically that “he knows Kerry is a jerk” and that we should be glad we don’t have to deal with him every day. Your choice folks. Elections in November. You want a mega-millionaire ego-maniac it’s-all-about-me crew-eating-pizza-ite like Kerry or maybe a Green Party candidate like Ralph Nader? Or, God forbid, maybe even re-elect George Bush, a nice God fearing Christian bent on protecting us from terrorist attacks on US soil?

  6. “They have a saying in the news business,” Geraldo Rivera
    related this week. “Reporters don’t report buildings that
    don’t burn.”� And with that introduction, he told a TV
    audience about the story that is being systematically
    denied to our entire nation: the success story of
    post-Saddam Iraq.

    Are we losing some soldiers each week?

    Is there some frustration in the public
    about electricity and waterservice?

    Are some Saddam Hussein loyalists
    throughout the land, making trouble?

    Has this opened a window for some terrorist mischief?

    But that’s ALL we hear.� No wonder the country is
    in a mixed mood about Iraq.� If you hear about the
    buildings that are not burning, though, it is a
    different story indeed.

    Rivera is no shill for George W. Bush.� But Bush, Condi
    Rice and Colin Powell together could not have been as
    effective as Geraldo was Thursday night on the Fox
    News Channel’s Hannity and Colmes program.

    “When I got to Baghdad, I barely recognized it,”
    he began, comparing his just-completed trip
    to two others he made during and just after the
    battle to topple Saddam.� “You have over 30,000
    Iraqi cops and militiamen already on the job.

    This is four months after major fighting stopped.
    Can you imagine that kind of gearing up in this country?
    Law and order is better; archaeological sites are being
    preserved; factories, schools are being guarded.”

  7. But what about the secondhand griping that the media have been so efficiently relating about power, water and other infrastructure?

    “To say that Iraq is being rebuilt is not true,” answered Rivera. “Iraq is being built.� There was no infrastructure before; we are doing it.� I just think the good news is being underestimated and underreported.”� At this juncture, one must evaluate how to feel about the voices telling us only about the bad news in Iraq, whether from the mouths of news anchors or Democratic presidential hopefuls.� At best, they are underinformed.� At worst, their one-sided assessments of post-Saddam Iraq are intentional falsehoods for obvious reasons.

    If I hear one more person mock that “Mission Accomplished” banner beneath which President Bush thanked a shipload of sailors and Marines a few months back, I’m going to spit. That was a reference to the ouster of Saddam’s regime, and that mission was indeed accomplished, apparently to the great chagrin of the American left.� No one said what followed would
    be easy or cheap, and that’s why the dripping-water torture of
    the cost and casualty stories is so infuriating.

    Remember we pay our soldiers whether they are in Iraq or in Ft Bragg, North Carolina.

    We should all mourn the loss of every fallen soldier. But context cries out to be heard.� Our present news media is not performing this task.� As some dare to wonder if this might become a Vietnam-like quagmire, I’ll remind whoever needs it that most of our 58,000 Vietnam war toll died between 1966 and 1972, during which we lost an average of about 8,000 per year.� That’s about 22 per day, every day, for thousands of days on end.
