Considering over 50 years of my life's experience, I've found that liberals embrace a responsible view point rather than a "pass the buck" ideology. Conservatives, on the other hand, tend towards the "it ain't my fault, but I'm gonna keep the profits anyway" ideology. I know this is confusing for a number of you so please let me expound a little. Environmental damage is done second by second in this country and world by various manufacturers and abundant energy absorbing/generating entities. They claim no responsibilities for the damage they do. In fact, they call opposition to their practises " faulty science" and get a few of the more ignorant amongst us to buy into that bullshit. Forget the accelerated occurances of cancer, emphesema, asthma and many other environmentally born diseases of the industrial age, it's just all "faulty science" in the views of the profiteers. Do you think "global warming" is a myth? Beware, defenders of industrial waste and abuse. The cost of American labor seems to be a sore spot on the asses of many of our more "corporate" minded. The work, although less expensive than what might be available in other more impoverished areas or countries, that Americans do is unsurpassed by any other society. Considering the logistical, tool-up and linguistic problems that we experience the long term picture is pretty dim. But short-term objectives are titillatingly met. Short-sightedness is never the fault of the short-sighted. It was a gamble on the front end, wasn't it? Beware, stock investors. Energy shortages caused by market manipulation in California are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to market manipulation in all forms of our "retail" system. From guitars to energy to knick-knacks on the curio shelf, the American buyer should beware and purchase reponsibly as far as availability will allow. Trouble is, when the markets are being unfairly manipulated, the availability side of the quotient is severly diminished. It's all in making a buck and long term effects be damned. We got a war that our prez pretends is important for world security. I'm not talking here about the "War On Terror", I'm talking about the war on a traditionall peaceful society that we are now engaging despite the fact their former idiot in chief was captured long ago and his power was eliminated even before that. At this point, I have to believe that there was a more tangible reason for this war of which I speak. Profit, maybe? There are many more countries and governments that present much more danger to us, the US, than anything I've seen produced from Iraq since the inception of this war. War hawks, beware. I could go on, but let's discuss the issues I've presented so far, OK?
