Americans must get a grip and stand up for what is right... Americans first!

The summer is over and school is starting -- Tempest Fugit! I am not happy with our Government.

I cannot comprehend the state of America. We are living in a world where values are non-existent and corruption is in total control.

My soldier son has been stationed in Iraq and is scheduled to return February 2004. Obviously, we have our children over in an uncivilized country with unidentifiable terrorists living under ground and daily casualties are reported. I thought when you go to war, you conquer, set things straight and balance the economy.

The Prez had barged into Iraq uninvited; unwanted; unsuccessful -- Happy Birthday Big Daddy Bush -- and believes he is going to civilize the savages of Iraq -- WHO is he kidding? Trillions of American dollars are being spent on unappreciative savages on the other side of the world and the Prez is ignoring all America's problems -- to be exact -- I think,:
American Indians should be on the war path; Black Americans should be insulted; Senior Americans are all shook up. WHY? WHY? Ans: Charity begins at home.

The white man has uncivilized the world. It is time to put women in office who are not tied to the "good old boys" club; a woman who does not owe or do favors; a woman who will BEGIN with the END in mind, thus eliminating the unreal, unsafe, unstable, unacceptable state of America - TODAY. or possibly an Actor who has their own money -- more up to date ideas -- BECAUSE whatever the crooked white men have done and redone is not WORKING.

Needless to say, we must face the reality and be prepared and be alert ~~ terrorist are animals -- no consequences -- no morals -- no conscience -- no values. We have no protection in America. Electricity shut down NYC, Detroit, etc., recently. Let's give $$ to Africa for aids. Right On?

I will vote for Hilary Clinton. The world, especially the USA needs a total paradigm shift across the board. We must update our laws; our punishment; our security; our programs to take care of our seniors who are devastated and incarcerated in a helpless and hopeless reality of neglect. They have contributed to Social Security for years and years; they deserve what they were promised --
but instead are subjected to the double talk Medicare Options that confuse licensed insurance agents who are responsible to explain to the Seniors the sad news!

YET, MEDICAID gives free; food; prescriptions; medical, dental, vision to anyone from anywhere who qualifies. WELCOME TO AMERICA ! Land of the FREE for YOU NON-AMERICANS! Land of NEGLECT for American Indians; Blacks; and our sweetheart Seniors.

What are you going to do? I am very concerned - I am a babyboomer and my years are numbered. I have worked with the Seniors in Tampa Bay for 11 years. I have seen first hand the OTHER side of RETIREMENT. For the majority, it ain't pretty folks.

If you love yourself and take care of your body like the temple it is, you could easily live to the rapidly growing group of 100 year olds.

God helps those who help themselves!

God Bless America

"Injured Troops Multiply Quietly"
by Vernon Loeb - The Washington Post

Bottom Lines:

. Casualties are increasing with almost ten servicemen declared "wounded in action." The number of wounded has grown so large and attacks so commonplace that injuries go unreported until one or more is killed in the attack.

Out of Site out of Mind?

. Central Command keeps a running total of the wounded -- and releases the number only when asked.

Very well written Karen...and passionate.

I don't agree with you on Hilary, but I understand your frustrations.

The sad truth is that we have two major political Parties with anti-labor views.
The Democrats are, in reality, the Democratic Socialists of America and the GOP is a Corporatist (fascist) Party...both believe in a partnership of government & business. The Dems see a government run/regulated economy, while the GOP sees a government designed to serve the best interests of the Corporate "Founders of the Feast." That's why the Dems favor rampant immigration that lowers wage rates for American workers, while the GOP favors "free trade" treaties that allow "American Corporations" that get gobs of "Corporate Welfare" here at home, to move their production facilities offshore so they can pay Third World workers a pittance compared to even America's Minimum Wage.

This is a disatrous policy and it has to end, but where will it end? Neither the Dems nor Republicans have any interest in ending it and the Libertarians are seen as a "Party of kooks" by far too many Americans. I don't see any end in sight.

Fine writing and great passsion in this piece none-the-less!
