    This is the best part about Lieberman's statement
    He wants to start a Federal investigation on something he will not even define. :rolleyes: Dietary and health experts will have have a hard time defining it as well. They can consider processed sugar and fat grams in food, but it is all relative to one's diet and ratio of those types of foods consumed by a person. Does Lieberman want to investagate everyones diet?
    Yeah, you are right Moi we have better things to do.

    I re-read the article. Now all I can think is Junk Food Tax.

    And don't forget your mandatory calesthenics. I mean, if we're into health only now, let's mandate exercise, outlaw alcohol, tobacco, junk food, cars (damn lazy people), public transportation (again the lazy thing), high heels (bunions, sprained ankles), short skirts (think of all those male whip lash sufferers)....

    Singing together was nothing more than fear for their political lives, in my opinion anyway.

    Unfortunately, we will never see our government 'work together' on money issues as long as its republicans vs democrats.

    we need a hundred or so independents, true independents, to be hammering out the pork barrel when it comes to legislation and spending bills.

    DKSuddeth, as long as the "us v them" ideology persists in this country we won't see that kind of ideology seriously persued. And you can take that either way you want to.

    :clap: :clap:

    That is EXACTLY what I think the problem with this country is today. People have forgotten the anger, the sadness, the true emotion that we ALL felt that day. I'm 30 - 35 minutes from the Flight 93 crash site, but even people in California were screaming "someone will PAY for this!!".

    On September 11th, there were not Republicans, Democrats, Blacks, Whites... we were Americans... and pissed off at that. Give a little time, take down the ruins of the towers, clean up the Pentagon and the field in Pennsylvania, the memory fades. I, for one, refuse to allow myself to forget the emotion of that day...

    Sorry for getting a tad off topic...

    No apologies. The topic is why are we, as citizens, allowing our ruling bodies to waste like this...one of the answers many of us have given is that citizens are apathetic and many politicians are so afraid of losing power to do anything they trade too much away.

    It is the fact that as intelligent human beings we can get past all the anger, sadness and true emotion that makes us a civilized nation. I think it is so sad that our politicals play on those emotions to lead us into unjustified national policy and into unjustified wars. Education is the key. Education is also the most feared by the politicals.
