    The Mother of All Messes By Paul Craig Roberts

    "Republicans are sending around the Internet a photo of a cute little boy whose T-shirt reads: “The mess in my pants is nothing compared to the mess Democrats will make of this country if they win Nov. 2nd.”

    One can only wonder at the insouciance of this message. Are Republicans unaware of the amazing mess the Bush regime has made?

    It is impossible to imagine a bigger mess. Republicans have us at war in two countries as a result of Republican lies and deceptions, and we might be in two more wars--Iran and Pakistan--by November. We have alienated the entire Muslim world and most of the rest.

    The dollar has lost 60% of its value against the euro, and the once mighty dollar is losing its reserve currency role.

    The Republicans’ policies have driven up the price of both oil and gold by 400%.

    Inflation is in double digits. Employment is falling.

    The Republican economy in the 21st century has been unable to create net new jobs for Americans except for low wage domestic services such as waitresses, bartenders, retail clerks and hospital orderlies."

    The two biggest problems we face are the National Debt and our dependency on foreign oil.

    Reagan and Bush are responsible for 90% of the National Debt. Both parties are responsible for no policy for American Energy Independence.

    Reagan and Bush are responsible for US dependence on foreign oil? LMFAO! Twisted.

    Our dependence on fossil fuels beyond our ability to produce them is repsonsible for our dependence on foreign oil, Einstein.

    Gunny, did you read my post?

    "Both parties are responsible for our dependence on foreign oil."

    Where are Reagan and Bush in that sentence?

    I wonder if politicians turn into "fossil fuels" when they die? If they don't then at least there will be no shortage of fertilizer!

    Woohoo!!! Things are lookin up!!! :dig:
