Puffery? Please explain. If you are serious, you need to do a reality check. The author simply points out that the current occupants of the White House really have that overused Latin word, gravitas. They are serious, good people who respect and care for their country and its fellow citizens far more than the children of the previous administration. Trust me...I am being far too kind in my description of the Clinton's but I just don't have the time to write a book on them...and they've already been written anyway. Get one...read it...the truth will set you free. If that causes you heartburn, then you really are in a state of denial and need to come to grips with reality. This country is vastly better off, especially now that we are at war, than if Bill Clinton or AlGore were residing in the White House. If you are jesting....you got us.

Lets not forget about the problems in front of us just because Bush is on time, Christian, and wears a tie! Enron is a huge scandal that reveals how the election was bought. ANWR was sold out to the big oil companies. The execution of the prisoners in Cuba is beyond all law! Don't market this as a "War on Terrorism" and then use it to deny justice to accused criminals/POWS. Is it a war or not? I'm thrilled Bush is Christian, but as the Lord said, "You shall know a tree by its fruit".

No, Enron is a non-issue that the Democrats desperately WANT to pin on Bush but is blowing up in their faces. Only media-brainwashed idiots believe the Bush administration is involved with Enron's collapse.

If you were kidding, please excuse the rant. [:)] If you are serious, you must be out of your frigging mind for buying the leftist BS hook, line and sinker! First--Enron is NOT a Bush scandal. It is leftist "repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth" propaganda. The election was bought? Bullshit. It was nearly stolen--by Gore!! ANWR contains a tremendously huge reserve of oil that WE OWN--and it can be acccessed by encroaching upon less than 2% of the land area, making us much less dependent upon foreign sources of petroleum. This is very important to our liberty in ways too far reaching to explain here. What execution of prisoners in Cuba? Where did you hear this? They are living much better than they did while "free" at home. [rolleyes]

"Every good tree bears good fruit" You left the quote off. Its Matthew 7:16 and elsewhere. ANWR stands for Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Its a national refuge. If you want to see what its going to look like drive through Texas and see how the big oil companies clean up their mess. The Afghan prisoners are either criminal deserving representation, or POW's. Which is it before they are executed? Just so we all know. We are all mad as hell at these guys, but we still need to follow the laws of this country(remembering that they were apprehended abroad)and that not every Moslem carrying an AK47 in Afghanistan took part in the attacks here. The United States has a long way to go if it wants to regain the status it once had as a Christian nation. We are presently in the "Post Christian Era", and missionaries are sent here to preach the Word from Christian countries. The world is watching to see if we are a nation of justice or vengeance. The idea spread on this page is... Never Forget! Never Forgive! What a pathetic anthem! Hardly Christian.

OK - only a Democrat would accuse a company that just went Bankrupt of having received special favors from the administration. If the administration was working in Enron's favor, wouldn't logic dictate the company would do better? Democrats can rake in hundreds of thousands in shady business deals and it is not a scandal. A Republican cooperates with the heads of major energy industries to develop an energy policy (I guess liberals would prefer he call Miss Cleo). One of these companies goes under. Now people are accusing that Republican of preferential treatment. I just don't get it. Adam

It is nice to see someone treating this job with respect. Although I pretty much just figured that Bush was the lesser of two evils I am sure glad that I voted for him. (Keys was the best choice IMHO but he really didn't have a chance.) As far as Bush respecting the house too, I don't think he will be trying to steal the furniture when he leaves. As far as the ANWR, it sounds like you haven't been working in the oilfield lately. When you work in any wildlife refuge you can't even take a leak on the ground. Ever seen a location covered in thick black plastic with a drilling rig on top of it all? Oh yeah, and if you are worrid about the drilling mud they use, around here they use it as fertilizer. No joke, its free, works great and the farmers love it. Even if your not on a wildlife refuge and work for a major company spills are not tolerated, not even freshwater. No, I think the ANWR will be just fine.

Regarding ANWR... People need to drive smaller cars. Its the patriotic thing to do. The EPA regulations limiting gas mileage for SUV's would have prevented drilling ANWR. That legislation was shot down in favor of a continuance of gas guzzling auto's that make the oil companies rich. How did it happen with a Texan in the White House? Hmmm... Everybody will remember Bush's presidency as a return to the slavery of the American people to big companies, big oil, big banks, deficit spending and voodoo taxes that favor the rich. Nice ties though.

Quoted by grimshaw: ANWR was sold out to the big oil companies.
View Quote
Only 8% of ANWR will be probed for oil (leaves no traces). If oil is discovered, only 0.01% will be altered for drilling. To put that into perspective for your unisynaptic brain [b]grimshaw[/b], if ANWR were an entire football field, the amount altered by drilling would be about 1.5 square ft. More than 75% of Alaskans favor exploration and production in ANWR. The Inupiat Eskimos who live in and near ANWR support onshore oil development on the Coastal Plain.

SUVs and Gas Mileage? Droll, very droll... I, for one, am immensely sick to the teeth of hearing this tripe spouted over and over! You want to rant, get after the housewives taking the Expedition to the corner store for a quart of milk and some bread. Before anyone asks - I have a brace of Jeep Cherokees - 87, 88, and 89. Average mpg is 21/23 for all - and I maintain my vehicles. All are pre-OBD-I engine control. All still produce tailpipe emission lower than most 1996-1998 models. All get better mileage than these so-called "SUVs" thrown up at me, and I have more usable power besides. Do we need to exploit domestic national resources? Yes. Why? National security - our defense establishment (and most of the economy tied in with petrochemistry!) is helplessly linked to the Middle East, and that needs to be corrected. On the "monster SUV" issue, I know ONE guy that has a Suburban and actually NEEDS it - he's married with 5 kids. They actually USE all the seats in it... Of course, energy markets and conservation are also tied in with the pertoleum economy. I'm doing my part - I have installed energy-efficient lighting all through my home (as of three years ago, before the KSSR energy "crisis,) and I have replaced desktop computers throughout my family with laptops - save one. I have to keep an online server for data storage for two home businesses. Why laptops? A laptop running full tilt uses less power than a desktop sitting idle with the monitor turned off. The LCD displays are VERY efficient, and the advances made to extend battery life apply to conservation as well. Add in the benefits derived from portability, and I'm starting to get somewhere... The kids got their laptops for their birthdays this past Summer. I'm conserving just as much as I can, but I still see the need for the increase in the use of domestic resources vice those overseas... FFZ

Ya know grimshaw if you have such a problem with"big business" like you say then maybe you should go and live out in the woods somewhere! You stupid moron who do you think gives you your job?? OOPS that would be "big business"!! You could work for some small company, but in one way or another "big business" would be connected to that job. So if you dont like haveing a job then why dont you go live in some third world country where poverty and sickness runs rampant.Oh by the way do you realize that the people who make the most money pay the greatest taxes? So of course they are going to get a huge amount of money? If you had any idea about economic principles you could see that reduceing taxes for Big business is going to help out the economy, extra money means investment into company, which means jobs, which means money because people are getting a pay check, which means demand for product because people are spending money, which means economic stability because demand for product keeps the businesses in business you moron!!!! I think that is economy 101 which you learn in High school!!!!!!!! You say maybe we should all drive smaller cars! My question is why? Why should I drive some small little piece of sh*t that cannot fit my family of four plus passengers in? Why should I drive some small piece of sh*t that wont pull my boat? Why should I drive some piece of Sh*t that wont make it into the woods so I can go and shoot my guns? Oh your liberal mind says rely on public transportation right? Well you dip wad public transportation wont pull my boat,and go were I need to go when I need to go? Oh and by the way oil drilling brings employment, that translates into money spent to help the economy! Oh and the EPA has made laws that are so strick that you could not even piss on the ground without getting a big fat fine! Oh and by the way it is in our national security to drill for oil anywhere in the US, that even means off shore oil drilling, I am for it, because less dependency on foriegn oil means better leverage and better economic growth for america you dip wad. You say Bush is involved with Enron? That is bull? My question to you would be I wonder why in the Eight years that Clinton was in office why did he not have an energy plan? Maybe because clinton is involved with this Enron scandal some way? You see the Bush administration is needing to clean up all of the messes that the Clinton administration made and the democrats are trying to pin it on Bush! Oh and all of the accounting policies(accounting laws) that are in effect today would be the result of the previous administration not keeping tabs on what was going on and not doing anything about preventing illegal business practices from happening? Oh yea blame bush, but the real culprit is all of the messes that clinton made and know bush a rightous man is needing to come in and look at what a sad shape things are in and clean it all up? To bad that in the future some other stupid democrat will eventually get into office and F**K everything all up again! But I suppose that is the nature of the beast? So grimshaw pull your head out of your ass and take a good whiff at reality!!!!!!!!!!

Korea (with the obvious exception of the gun laws) is in many ways freer than the US. This has led to economic growth that would cause anyone here in the 70s or even the early 90s to stare in disbelief. The end state for Joe here is that he can purchase a cell phone in the cut throat market here for dirt cheap and call home for 9 - 10 cents a minute. You can also use the internet for barely 80 cents an hour nearly everywhere you look. Korea has one of the highest percentage of broadband internet connections in the world. Thus anything US related that you do miss is usually deliverable within a week or so from some company doing business on the web (the price with shipping is always better thab the PX for the stuff you CAN find here). Thats not to say I don't have lonely, homesick soldiers - I probably do. It's just that there is no where near the feeling of isolation that there used to be here.

There are a lot of things that Bush can be attacked for, but you seem able to do nothing more than parrot the erroneous socialist tripe of the day. Most of us realize that anything beyond 'Bush=bad, Clinton=good', things such as facts and reality, will merely get filtered out of your mental processes. Hence there exists no need to expend time and effort to turn your sights to the painfully obvious. Speaking of one party government, I have to find it interesting that there are still large pockets of libero-socialists who still feel it necessary to moan and complain over the election (I've heard 'resident Bush', and Commander-in-Theif quite often).....yet the conservatives for some reason don't still bemoan the Jim Jeffords switch. They simply decided to move on and do their job. If you truly have a wish to debate these things, then develop a reasoned position and at least provide SOME facts. If you are simply trolling for reactions, please waste someone else's bandwidth.

Grimshaw's just d*ckin with you folks! Kinda like Imbrog meets Gecko. Personally, he's cracking me up! Edited to add: Trickshot may be more talented than grim though, he got this whole thing rolling with one little post!
