That is interesting, Marsha, and I learned some things I didn't know. Thanks!

Pure unadultered crap.

You only say that because that's exactly how you feel about the United States. And that's sad.

Tend to agree, TSK.

Anarchy isn't right wing.

Military dictatorship is.

I wonder how impure, adulterated crap would look on a graph.

Being among the naive here, I liked the video as it reflects how I was taught to live. I am beginning to realize that politicians do not reflect those beliefs-rather late in my life to become aware, I know. I was also taught to respect the US flag and the office of The Presidency whether I agreed with the policies or not. Just curious about how the Bush-Bashers feel about the rather secret paper notice of more troops being sent to Afghanistan- both Russians and French got butts kicked there in a ground war. I know the president has people "studying" the situation but a head commander said there will have to be a strong US presence there for several years to come. Some on the other hand saying it is a dangerous thing to have any strong force there before a policy has been firmly set in place for the entire Middle East. He has said Gitmo will be closed but a district court just overturned a Supreme Court decision saying that some Chinese 'folk' should be released in the US since they will be tortured if returned to China. In short they remain at Giitmo with no provable criminal charges against them. I know everything is under control because Eric Holder will be there shortly to sort it all out. Hopefully whatever ideas he comes up with will not leave me as uneasy as the words of Tim Geithner did. Perhaps it is time for him to quit campaigning like making the promise that no one will be helped with their mortgage if they got into something they couldn't afford. Without the techniques supposedly used at Gitmo being used on the borrowers don't know how it is possible for anyone to determine that. I am still not sure exactly who owns my mortgage as it seems this will only work if Frannie or Freddie are involved If memory serves me the taxpayers recently gave them a huge amount of money. Please forgive my ignorance........ Linda ;s

Before anyone calls med on it I KNOW he said that people who did not live on the property and were simply speculating that values would go up will not be included. Like so many other things don't see who is overseeing anything like money in the hands of states from this last mess....

Linda, the troop movements to Afghanistan are not secret. I just don't understand the objective. That moonscaped country is never going to become anything. A military victory there is impossible. So why do we need so many of our troops there for what is essentially a holding action - keeping really bad things from happening?

No, Andy, you cannot keep large troop deployments secret. It was, however, done as a paper order with no announcement right after he signed that "MESS" into law. I am glad you know that his reason is just to keep something really bad from happening. Seems like bad things are already happening in Pakistan. Glad you also agree that any ground war there would be his Viet Nam- Linda

No, Linda, I don't know why we need more troops there. In fact the new admin told the Europeans that they could have more say if they sent more troops (to Afghanistan).

The world has more Republics than any other form of government. Great information ... worth the 10 minutes.

It fails from the beginning when it tries to define things on a linear chart with a left and right end, when in reality it is a circle joined by libertarians/anarchist who have either some so far to the left or right that they have met themselves coming from the other direction.
