    Looks like the 'modest proposal' has picked up gravitas...I heard a bit ago that this indeed is what may play out:

    Let's form the American Shell corp. Then nationalize the port facility and lease the operations contract to The Shell corporation. Voila. No dubai government at all.

    That's right, unless I'm down with Muslim GOVERNMENTS running our ports, I'm a RAAAAAAAAAAAYCIST.

    Now that would require consistancy and integrity. While they trash the NSA, Patriot Act, The war in Iraq, racial profiling etc etc they think we shouldnt lease a port to an Arab country? You've bought a pig in a poke --run like hell before liberal cooties crawl in your ears and eat your gray matter!

    I agree, of course they won't. Just like I posted earlier...they'll turn on a dime to attain their objectives--- which in this case was to attack Bush from the right. Of course now Hillary is moderating her position. :puke: Before this port issue libs were all supportive of Muslims-- then all of a sudden any Muslims, even Muslim allies, are to be feared. :terror: My lying-lib-o-meter started acting crazy as soon as I learned that Chuckie Schumer was the one who first started the bruhaha.

    Like most people my very first reaction was also one of abhorrance that we would allow any middle easterners to "control" our ports. However, looking at the actual facts, they are NOT controlling our ports and security is the same as ever...which was pretty bad to begin with anyhow. If this bruhaha leads to greater port security, I am all for it. There is a lot of room for improvement. Also, I agree that if this type of ownership plan is instituted, it should be done to ALL foreign companies dealing in areas of security concern. Closing the borders would also help. Time to lock this country down! Let the profiling begin! :terror: :firing:

    I'm glad the Dimmies are finally on board. :laugh:
