monsta you a funny dude. I had a convo with one of my boys the day, he asked me why I didn't get into politics since I'm so passionate about it.

My first response was, "cause I'm not a scumbag". But after further reflection, I would be brutal dictator, cause I can't handle stupidity well. I would however treat everyone equally bad, if that helps any hahahah.

I find it hard to find unbiased media coverage of any of this, but if you take a little from each source, you can come to an equilibium at some point.
I agree with you here. There isn't much unbiased coverage out there.

Not all of his "tax cuts" are for social programs though. While he is "raising taxes", the majority of taxpayers will end up paying less because of the tax credits. Because of how ignorant and uninformed the general public is, I would call it "tax cuts" also if it was my campaign. In the end, that's essentially what it is. That's half of the issue anyway. You're right, part of it is being used for social programs.

Obama is catching a lot of crap over his tax plan from McCain for the very reason that you mentioned. McCain is doing the very same thing to fund his health care program, but he's not being attacked as much about it. Shows you how important semantics are.

That's my take on things at this point anyway. I think this is unarguably the most interesting election in the past twenty years. I think everyone has an idea of what's probably going to happen, but it's still unprecedented. Then again, the world has been going nuts this year, so who knows? It will make the next election pretty interesting also.

I wonder what all they know/have seen that we, well, wonder about! I think they've seen aliens, may even have one, or parts of one.

I wonder how many assassination attempts there have been on the president. I know there must have been a lot over the years. It's something that would never be talked about because if it seemed commonplace, more people would try it.

I've been told that whenever the pres. makes a public speech, there are plexi. shields in front/to the sides of him, and that you can sometimes see them on TV.
