Jayne, well said! I could not agree more.
Wink, we need a large prescription of that medicine, please.
Unclebuck, I have to parse your quote a bit to respond:
unclebuck Wrote:Do you know only about 25% to 30% of the people want this bail out,and that the majority of this country want us out of this war.
And in WWII the majority of the US did not want to enter the war, and millions perished for our hesitance and ignorance. Regarding the war, IMHO, we have leaders now that did what was right in spite of public opinion. Lets hope they do the same with the financial mess. That does not mean I am happy with it, but something needs to be done. The majority opinion can still be the wrong opinion.
unclebuck Wrote:I also want to state how McCain and Bush and Obama have met to discuss this issue and are thinking on postponing their campaigns, think about that so who will be in charge if no one is running?
Oh, believe me, they are running. McCain's manuever over Obama with "let's get back to Washington and do our job" shows that you should put your money on old age and treachery over youth and inexperience any time.
unclebuck Wrote:and if this crises gets worse remember Bush has the right to suspend this election and not leave office.
Please cite the specific clause in the Constitution that specifies that.
Bottom line, we will survive this. Is it a big problem? Yes. Can we overcome it? Of course. We're Americans. We've faced worse evils, and have triumphed. But first we need to believe in ourselves and our country. The Revelations Armegeddon, doom and gloom apocalyptic scenario you promote has been around a long, long time. It was last going to occur in the new millenium. Even the bible says you will never know the time, and beware false prophets claiming that knowledge.
In my opinion, man has been predicting the end of time since, well, the beginning of time.
And finally, Tuffy, we'll all still be here and it will still be beautiful next May. First round of Rum Balls are on me!
