28 years of Bush and Clinton. Had enough?


A Bush or Clinton has been on ticket for 28 straight years folks. 28 straight years.

Are we insane? Are there any other families in America than the fricking incompetent and corrupt Bush's and the dysfunctional and weird Clintons?


80: Bush
84: Bush
88: Bush
92: Clinton & Bush
96: Clinton
00: Bush
04: Bush
08: Clinton
12: Clinton & Bush?

300 Million Americans and all we get is Bushes and Clintons?

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. Can we finally move on, and maybe try to get something done?

History will consider this Bush/Clinton generation not only as pretty fu*ked up, but also extremely destructive. The downfall of America happened on their watch, and the clueless voters went along for the ride.

Who cares, it is too late to prevent economic collapse anyway.

"Of every 100 containers that crossed the Pacific Ocean from Asia to North America last year, 60 came back empty, according to Drewry Shipping Consultants, a research organization and consultancy.

The containers that did come back full were often transported at a steep discount for lack of demand.

Shippers are so eager to fill their vessels for the return voyage to East Asia that they accept many types of unprofitable cargo, like bales of hay.

"It's hard to believe, but it's one of the main U.S. exports to Asia,"

BALES OF HAY! One sure way to economic success!

What I think is amazing is that Clinton and Bush II are two of the five least popular presidents in American history (Truman, Nixon, Carter, Clinton and Bush II) and people still consider their family members as potential candidates. Why would anyone consider another Bush or another Clinton when both were absolute disasters as presidents. But, Hillary is a front runner and Jeb would be a front runner if he entered the race. Rediculous.

" ...

Oh come on ... the downfall of America started with Roosevelt and the New Deal. The Clinton's and Bush's are just carrying that screw up to its logical end.

Actually, if you want to REALLY get down to the root cause though, its the fact that there is no explicit separation of economy and state like there is church and state. The government being involved in the economy is always a recipe for disaster. Always.

Downfall of America only if you are a tin foil hat wearing, extremist, renting fool who was passed by the 25 year economic boom.

It's Bush's fault you rent and din't buy in 2000. It's Clinton's fault you kept you money in a 4% during the 1990s. It's Bush's fauly you dropped out of high school and thought a job at the "plant" would be good enough.

Keith,
Spot on, and let's throw in all the elites as well. Folks forget about Republican and Democrat. Both can give a rat's ass concerning your welfare. It's joe six pack against the IMF,CFR,BIS,UN and any other alphabet group you can think of.

Everyday they transfer your wealth to themselves while making everyone a debt slave. A popularist candidate is what is needed to bring back sanity to America.

It's amazing how you numbnuts talk. You complain that "they" are fucking you over as you sit and type on your laptop, connected to the ineternet via high speed, all the while sitting in an air conditioned home/apartment or office. And you have all the time in the world to surf blogs and bitch. Yeah some fucking oppresive society you live in. Are you starving? Are you sick and can't get a doctor to treat you? No. You are in the top 5% of the world's wealthiest people. There are literally billions of people in the world who don't have enough food to eat on a daily basis and here you are complainig.

Step back from it for a second and you'll realize how utterly foolish you sound.

Shit Kieth,you're just starting to notice?The Constitutional Republic is a fable from the so called birth of this country.Just accept this ,and the adventures into the universe of natural laws(Not Manmade) will start.Here for you are some examples to dispute.
The Constitution is not binding upon men, and women,nor does it grant any right or priveledge.
From it's inception,the US was asserted,and structured as a a"corporation".See Universal Commercial Code,and keep a copy of Blacks Law dictionary.
Your powers come from an unknown source,and are not limited to any writings or laws of any government ,church,nor are they protected by such.These natural rights of men ,and women are usurped by Governments,churches,and the like by Constitutional Contracts,force,frauds,or schemes of advantage.(Ignorance is a very powerful natural law in which every man or woman has complete control over).CHOICE.Your Power.
By choosing ignorance,we have chosen,non responsibility,Thus we have chosen to lay our power,and responsibility in the laps of Presidents,Congress,Senates,Judges,and Policemen.No one is happy with the decisions of leaders,and as a society we have failed.
We never were "America".We were always subjects of Leaders.
It doesn't matter who really runs the world,for no leader can truly accept responsibility for anyone elses decisions,although those in power may take full advantage of any ignorance that exists.A judge relies on your ignorance in a hearing.The Predidents rely on your ignorance to wage economic,and military war.The day we decided to lay our powers down ,the crafty,and knowledgable were there to pick them up.
Bill,Hillary,George,Ronny,Jimmy,Gerald,Richard,Lindon,John,Dwight,Harry,and Frankiln D.Thats Half a century of the same ole stuff.Every one of these promised to make things better,every one of these were leading when millions were killed in war,taxes were foisted upon the subjects,property confinscated,prison populations increased,Stock markets wiped out savings,riots ensued,gangs increased,devalution of currency ran unabated,small businesses,and inventors were trampled by their laws,and regulation,schools of limited,and questionable teaching were enforced,and all the bright young minds were corralled ,and tamed for "Our Leaders" own protection.
Let me Be Blunt,Do you fucking Idiots get it?Keep blaming the man,and keep giving him your hard earned money,so he can regulate you to the grave.Your children be damned.Fuck you all, I'm Out.

Immigration Deal Under Threat in Senate
Jun 5, 1:45 PM (ET)
By JULIE HIRSCHFELD DAVIS


WASHINGTON (AP) - A broad bipartisan immigration deal was threatened Tuesday as the Senate prepared to vote on a Republican proposal to make it harder for millions of illegal immigrants to qualify for green cards.

The proposal by Sen. Wayne Allard, R-Colo., would eliminate extra points that illegal immigrants could get toward lawful status for work done while they were in the U.S. illegally, owning a home, or having health insurance. The proposed merit-based system would award the most credit for employment criteria such as education and skill level.

The Senate also planned to consider a bipartisan bid to require employers to recruit U.S. workers before giving a foreign laborer a job under the measure's controversial new temporary worker program.

Showdowns were expected on Democratic efforts to allow more family-based immigration under the bill and more Republican proposals to make the path to legalization for illegal immigrants more burdensome.

Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., an architect of the bill, said he would oppose the family changes despite his sympathy for the efforts.

"I'm going to stay with the agreement," Kennedy said of the so-called "grand bargain" he struck with conservative Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., and other Republicans and Democrats from across the political spectrum.

That leaves in doubt the fate of a proposal by Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., to allow more than 800,000 people who had applied for permanent legal status by the beginning of the year to get green cards based purely on their family connections - a preference the bill ends for most relatives who got in line after May 2005.

A close vote was also expected on a bid by Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, to bar illegal immigrants who have defied deportation orders from gaining legal status. That could cut down substantially on the number of unlawful immigrants who would be able to take advantage of the measure's path to legalization.

The bill, a top domestic priority for President Bush that poses a perplexing political dilemma for Republicans and Democrats, is widely regarded as the best chance for Congress to take action on immigration - possibly for years to come.


"There are a number of threats and opportunities before us," said Frank Sharry of the National Immigration Forum, part of a coalition of liberal groups pushing hard for passage despite some grave concerns with the measure.

Kennedy said lawmakers who listened to their constituents over a Memorial Day break last week heard that, "the American people want action on immigration reform."

"We know that we are facing some challenges," Kennedy said, referring to a host of amendments that could scuttle the deal.

"Those of us, the dozen or so, who have put this bill together are finding it very, very hot to handle," said Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa.

Specter said he'd like to support some of the changes being put forth this week, "but if we're to keep this bill intact to the extent of being able to pass it, there are going to be a lot of very tough votes."

In addition to Menendez's proposal, several Democratic presidential hopefuls have proposed family-related changes.

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., is proposing allowing more spouses and minor children of legal permanent residents to immigrate to the U.S., by exempting them from visa caps.

The Senate also is considering a bid by Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., to more than double, to 90,000 a year, the number of green cards available for parents of U.S. citizens.

Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., plans an attempt to phase out the point system that gives little credit for family ties to a U.S. citizen or permanent legal resident.

I'm not so sure Hillary is going to make it on the ticket and I don't think Jeb has a chance for decades. The new Republican governor here in Florida has spent his first 6 months in office undoing a lot of the crap that Jeb did. The only reason people down here liked Jeb so much is because he managed hurricane disasters well. Maybe he could be head of FEMA. George Jr. has tainted the Bush name for a while. Jeb won't be able to run until our collective memory of the Bush nightmare has become hazy.

Wait until all the ignorant sheeple vote Giuliani into office, just like they did with the Bushes. That's when the country will really collapse and then his little secret group will make up another phony war or terror event to deviate attention. Once a sheeple, always a sheeple.

I remind you all again. Some secret group bough a gazillion stocks from OSI Systems on Friday, a day before they exposed that phony JFK terror plot. OSI Systems is a mjor supplier of airport security technology (scanners, biometrics, etc). Nobody gives a damn. Some secret group did the same maneuver with airline stocks before 9-11, and it was traced back to some neocon and Israeli figures. Nobody did anything about it, again. Some secret groups are creating phony terror events for political and financial gains, but the sheeple is more worried about American Idol.

Here, check the rocket ride of OSI Systems stock on Friday:

Are you serious?

We've had one Clinton so far. Why make it out to be a dynasty?

Hillary hasn't done much more than Elizabeth Dole.

Can we keep a little perspective on the power of the Clinton family, please? They are powerful today, sure...but please....The Clintons have not been relevant for 28 years. That is what you are implying.

It's obvious that Hillary has had a little nip and tuck surgery.

By the way, you forgot Johnson. So unpopular that he lost to the third party wackjob Eugene McCarthy in New Hampshire before letting his running mate lose to Nixon.
