P.S. Don't assume if we start something that we will win. Maybe we will give a number of nations an excuse to dominate and control us. Be careful what you wish for because you may not get it!

35 years ago (ala 1972) as a teenager, I was sure that a more compassionate evolved society would be in place in the United Statesby now. From what I have seen, we have gone way backwards. Attention all baby boomers. You failed and are more selfish and cruel that your WW2 parents. You know nothing of service and are truly babies. Boom..... Sha Boom...... La,lalallalalalala. Boom... Sha Boom... lalalalalalallala. There is plenty of money in this country to help all people. Does anyone remember what a social program is or do we just take over countries? Some one said to me a few days ago, "If we do not take over the world, someone else will." So there goes your money. One minute I hear people talk about the United States, the next they talk about the global economy. Which is it then? What exists now? Why don't we just have a World War Three and get it over with if that is the attitude of my generation of which I am truly ashamed.

I hope he did more than that to get stuck in a mental facility for over two and a half years.,if not then Bush ought to be sent up for life!Meanwhile the Taser walks! Excuse me? What about the Sandoval guy with the Samarai sword? do you think he'll bo out soon? and will they agree not to let him "have contact" with said victim? Who are the criminals., the Bureau of Prisons, the OLCC?, the DEA? and what's the real function of jail space when medicare funds are slashed or dissallowed, turning elderly or otherwise "care intensive" patients out to the street from long term care facilities?, while the state safely houses, feeds and releases, according to the letter of the law,(and loads of cash for humanitarian legal assistance from balanced minded lawyers I'm sure)., the likes of Taser man! I think I'm going to be ill!
