Q & A

What can be done to prevent the United States from going the way of the Roman Empire?

Remove hundreds of military bases that are in other countries.

No more pre-emptive wars.

Reduce the gargantuan Pentagon budget.

Stop shipping jobs offshore.

Increase taxes on the richest.

No more Bushes in the White House.

Secure the borders and ports before the terrorists start detonating dirty bombs.

No more toys with lead paint.

What should be done to reverse the Army's highest suicide rate in 26 years?







What does it say about the U.S. that seniors are going to Mexico for affordable nursing home care?

It says that the U.S. health care system is a rotten, broken, disgraceful, tragic, and criminal system, and I doubt whether any new president will have the guts and testicles (excepting one candidate) to change this rotten, broken, disgraceful, tragic, and criminal system whose main care is profits AND not patients!


A Dutch Catholic bishop says people of all faiths should call God "Allah" to ease tensions with Muslims. How much sense does that make?

It doesn’t make much sense

Let people have a multiple choice.

Choose one of the following:

Jehovah, Absolute Being, All Knowing, All Powerful, Almighty, Creator, Deity, Divine Being, Infinite Spirit, Man Upstairs, Prime Mover, God or Allah.

If you don't like these then choose your own name!

I remember what the writer William Burroughs once said:

(I am paraphrasing):

"We are all shit eaters.

We worship a nameless asshole."

Crude but true?

How concerned

should the U.S. be about joint Russian and Chinese war games?

The U.S. shouldn't be that concerned right now, but the psychological and geopolitical implications are important for the not so distant future.

Bush was hell-bent on ordering and re-ordering the world.

It is no shocking surprise that two other powerful nations are looking at the roadmap and road plans that Bush and buddies have designed and implemented.

Russia and China are making theirs.

China has our money.

Russia has Putin's soul that Bush saw.

I don't know how closely the Decider looked into Putin's orbs, but he ought to look again.

He might see a Chinese flag next to a Russian flag.

Two years after Hurricane Katrina, why hasn't more attention been paid to restoring New Orleans?

Ask Bush.

Ask Congress.

Our government (I mean their government) is more concerned about elections.

It's easy to start wars.

It’s difficult to receive help at home when your leaders are blowing billions of your tax dollars on a beastly and blundering war.
