    Lieberman is also Pro-War and has been ticking off his fellow Democrats.
    As for our Oil dependency, everytime someone mentions drilling off the coast of Florida or in Alaska it seems that most people get their panties in a bunch.
    Don't really matter what us Americans would be willing to pay anyhow, you have China and India willing to pay twice as much. As for the American Economy, heck everytime a CEO of some major company farts Stocks go down. Just my .02:big_smile:

    Hey... At least we all have brothers and sisters around the country willing to help us all catch fish and do so consistently.
    That almost makes our big problems pointless, doesnt it?

    I dont have anything nice to say beyond that... so that's what I'm posting here.

    Tight lines folks. We're gonna get through our fiscal problems in time. Till then, I propose we maim a few baitfish with big steel hooks, lay our heads back, and watch some shootin stars and thank God we could be here on this green and blue floating ball to witness it for another night.

    Get my drift? :smile2:

    why the Bush bashing? Damn man! be glad that george bush is in office at a time when we need someone just like him to step up and make the unpopular decisions that ultimately will benefit the U.S. and the world! be thankful that idiots like kerry or gore or clinton arent in there!
    Stop believing the liberal media. the liberal democrats one agenda is bashing the Bush administration even if it means hanging our troops in Iraq out to dry!
     
  8. If this country hits bottom at least we will always have fishing.

    I'll agree 100% , Bush didn't ask for terrorist to strike on our soil how was he to know the middle east was going to hell in a hand basket. The man has his hands full give him a break! I wouldn't want to walk a day in his shoes. He is doing the right thing in keeping the fighting over there.
    Or would you rather it be in your neighborhood?
    He didn't get elected for a second term because he was doing a bad job.
    He is just the president of this country, the UN is the governing body for world affairs not the USA.

    In all this what amazes me is ,what are we doing trading with a commonest country in the first place? Wait I know the answer to this.
    So corporate greed can be fed.

    AWESOME!
    Im so glad I walked out of the High Intensity area. Its such a breath of fresh air NOT to read all the negativity and political acid splashing around in a place that is supposed to be a brotherhood... a beacon in a safe harbor where folks who just like to catfish can get together and assist each other.


    Oh... umm... yeah... forget that thing I said above.:roll_eyes: :roll_eyes: :sad2:

    I look at these figures and just get mad as he#$ that we can spend all that money overseas but can't give Americans health care. Too many of the folks that are footing these bills are dying for lack of health insurance. It's sad.
