The first pizza i consumed from this restaurant, was a regular flat pizza, and, it was quite tasty. i returned,and, ordered a pan pizza. It consisted of a pile of canned tomatoes on top of a bland tasting dough.
You have ignored(much like Obama ignored his question) the only presidential candidate who sponsors total legalization of drugs, not just the hypocritical medical variety. Gary Johnson for president 2012.
Our global military empire combined with massive entitlement programs in the US, have created our present economic predicament. Name calling and raising taxes will not solve it, all the overseas military bases must be closed, and the handouts must cease.
"The voters of Southern Arizona are more concerned that Giffords voted to cut $500 billion from Medicare and that Giffords bailed out Wall Street than they are with what some Washington, D.C., paper thinks," Kelly says. This is correct, and it must be mentioned that Giffords would lose 49 out of 100 elections.
Instead of advocating solar powered tanks and a phony war on terror, why does she not pursue a real issue, such as, who was really responsible for 911?
Excuse me,but, "the congresswoman" has done nothing but support special interests. Big banks, big brokerage firms, big pharmaceutical companies,big health insurers, big builders and big motors are the main benefactors of her votes on bail outs and mandatory health insurance. Social Security is a ponzi scheme that will soon fail and needs to be replaced with a honest investment strategy that will benefit everyone (including some millionaires but not any billionaire corporations).
"Wacky" derivatives did not create this economic mess, it was created by the fed,s meddling with the interest rates. What we need is less regulation , not more.
It is a good thing that she is supporting disabled veterans because her congressional voting is creating more of them. Last week she voted for the war supplemental appropriations bill. This means we will be sending another $106 billion we don't have to continue the bloodshed in Afghanistan and Iraq, without a hint of a plan to bring our troops home.
As Americans struggle through the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression, this emergency supplemental appropriations bill sends $660 million to Gaza, $555 million to Israel, $310 million to Egypt, $300 million to Jordan, and $420 million to Mexico. Some $889 million will be sent to the United Nations for so-called "peacekeeping" missions. Almost one billion dollars will be sent overseas to address the global financial crisis outside our borders. Nearly $8 billion will be spent to address a "potential pandemic flu" which could result in mandatory vaccinations for no discernable reason other than to enrich the pharmaceutical companies that make the vaccine.
Perhaps most outrageous is the $108 billion loan guarantee to the International Monetary Fund. These new loan guarantees will allow that destructive organization to continue spending taxpayer money to prop up corrupt leaders and promote harmful economic policies overseas.
We are buying nothing but evil and global oppression by sending your taxdollars to the IMF. Not to mention there is no Constitutional authority to do so. Our continued presence in Iraq and Afghanistan does not make us safer at home, but in fact undermines our national security.
