We are already selling off my children's future with these bailouts... why don't we just cut to the chase and sell the kids right into slavery now? Let's see, if we could get $20,000 each, with maybe 50,000,000 kids in the country, that's a cool trillion right now! Unfortunately, we would flood the slavery market, and the price would go into the toilet. So let's stick with bailouts. They'll figure out how to earn those bucks somehow.Comment Posted By Simpleman61 On 9.02.2009 @ 23:15
We are irresponsibly running up deficits and obligations for social programs that our children will one day have to pay for. Our children just became obligated to pay back a debt for a stimulus check of $700 each. This, from income they don't yet know how to earn. It seems somehow just that we suffer a bit while leaving vast wealth in the ground, untapped.
One day WHEN the oil reserves run low in Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Venezuela, those untapped reserves may be available for my children's generation to use.
At that time, who will be funding the terrorist cells and Hamas? Maybe without huge sums of oil money to spend, the Middle East will be a more peaceful place.
We are leaving a world of economic desolation for our children... small price to pay to leave them a bit of our untapped natural resources.
We need to focus our attention on solving the problems at hand weather we drill now or later. Our energy policy needs to be MUCH more comprehensive than simply extracting our energy reserves. If that’s all we can figure out to do, then I say leave the reserves untapped.Comment Posted By Simpleman61 On 17.06.2008 @ 12:32
I read almost all of your blog entries, and respect your viewpoint on most things. This was not your best entry.
I reject banana pudding. I don't like it, and never have. If you do like it, that's fine by me.
I denounce trans fats. This man-made poison should not be in our food supply, and I encourage all who eat it to quit.
Yes, there is a difference between rejecting and denouncing. Rejecting is a personal choice. Denouncing includes rejecting, and goes far beyond to include finding something worthy of rejection for yourself AND others.
Obama lost the chance to win this point, but he still made Hillary look petty.
As for some of the "attacks" on Catholisism, would it be an attack on Catholisism to say that some priests acted very poorly toward young men in the past? They are not alone in this horrible behavior, but they should be held responsible for their actions. I denounce the actions of crusaders in the dark ages as being brutal toward noncombatants. It is implicit that I also reject them.Comment Posted By Simpleman61 On 1.03.2008 @ 19:58
Having Obama lead black people to a more empowered, self-reliant and less victim-oriented mindset than their mainstream leadership is extremely appealing. It would almost justify the fight it would set up in congress to ward off the inevitable avelanche of socialist policies.
However, he vows to pull out of Iraq at any cost. This would leave a power vacuum more dangerous than 2001 when we had Sadam in Iraq kicking out inspectors and Osama bombing embassies and attacking the trade centers and the pentagon.Comment Posted By Simpleman61 On 1.02.2008 @ 14:57
