    “The countries that are most efficient in energy use, not only do they not subsidize energy — in fact, they tax energy use,” Obama said. “So you look like — in a country like Norway, which produces a lot of oil, but gasoline there is still $6 or $7 a gallon, which in liters — who wants to do a liter conversion for me?” “Anyway, it’s very expensive,” Obama added. “And we’ve doubled fuel-efficiency standards on cars,” he continued. “So in a few years, by the middle of the next century, by 2025, you won’t be able to sell a...

    When it comes to economic policy, ...Bush has all the luck. He's like a drunk who wanders across a six-lane highway and somehow never quite gets smushed. 1-Bush proposed enormous tax cuts to shore up his conservative credentials in the 2000 primaries. ...after the first reckless cuts were enacted, along came the perfect after-the-fact justification: terrorism. Suddenly people were terrified about air traffic grinding to a standstill, consumers being too frightened to go shopping and buildings being uninsurable. The economic boost from the tax cuts seemed almost prescient. 2-the post-Sept. 11 economic trough ended in time for Bush's reelection. Bush...

    Tuesday, Sen. John F. Kerry (D) Massachusetts demonstrated in the OP/ED Pages of the New York Times in a piece “The Speech the President Should Give” one reason he stills sits at the same Senate desk he’s held down since 1984. Mr. Kerry’s remarks seem a grab bag of initiatives untried by the Bush administration in Iraq for one giant reason: They will not work. With so many initiatives, Mr. Kerry must be duck hunting again with his scatter gun. Where to begin breaking down his missive is the least troubling question presented. Mr. Kerry calls for a U.N.

    According to psychiatrist Dr. Justin Frank, writing in his book, "Bush on the Couch: Inside the mind of the President," Dubya not only suffers from a "sadistic streak," and "megalomania" and "grandiosity," but while "his alcoholism [may have] been arrested," it nevertheless remains "untreated." You have to wonder, don't you, if old Dubya hasn't merely swapped one addiction for another - one opiate for the enthralling enamor of God? Professionals working in the field of recovery have often observed the addicted personality turn towards God as their savior. Typically, though, they, like Dubya, are merely substituting one addiction for another....

    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

Officials were worried that the visit signaled that a draft may be at hand. In follow-up meetings, draft officials urged the...

Let us not forget, as 19 soldiers lay dead in body bags that before this war and 9/11 for that matter, this fraud was started and conceived by Bush, Rumsfield and the other chicken hawk neo cons down in Texas BEFORE the attacks of 9/11. Do the math right- wingers. You are cheerleaders for a regime that is bent on world dominion and to line their pockets with massive oil profits. Let's not forget that Israel is also involved in this international fraud.

    Good evening. I want to have a frank talk with you tonight about our most serious domestic problem. That problem is inflation. Inflation can threaten all the economic gains we've made, and it can stand in the way of what we want to achieve in the future. This has been a long-time threat. For the last 10 years, the annual inflation rate in the United States has averaged 6-1/2 percent. And during the 3 years before my inauguration, it had increased to an average of eight percent. Inflation has, therefore, been a serious problem for me ever since I became...

Or, in two words -- suitable for a picket sign or a T-shirt -- ``Out now.''

    In Canada, if the Prime Minister took over a record $230 billion surplus and four years later had turned it into a $300 billion plus deficit there would be no fn way that he'd be elected to another term. He'd be toast. Bush will be the first president since Herbert Hoover to have a net loss of jobs during his tenure. If this was an election in any western democracy but the States they'd throw the bums out just for this singularly inept economic performance. No question. But Bush faced no challenge for the Republican nomination and is not just...
  • ZOT: Republicans

    I think it is absolutely hilarious how you people get so upset by what others have to say about you. Are you really THAT insecure about being a republican that you have to bash down anyone else's views. REPUBLICAN IS NOT the only party out there. Deal with it. Bush is a moron. The war on terrorism is stupid. I think Ani Difranco summarized it best in her poem. So how about you quit your whinning and deal with the fact that the whole worlds population IS NOT REPUBLICAN. If I remember correctly, freedom of speech is one of our...

    Like a lot of you, I was willing to cut Nick Berg's father a lot of slack considering the tragedy of his son's death, but this is disgusting: George Bush never looked into Nick's eyes. Even more than the murderers who took my son's life, I condemn those who make policies to end lives.

    WHEN I eulogized my son Nick, I said that he was my teacher and my hero. He was the kindest, gentlest man I know -- no, the kindest, gentlest human being I know or have ever known. Did you know that he quit the Boy Scouts of America because they wanted to teach him to fire a handgun? Nick, too, poured into me the strength I needed and still need to tell the world about him.

    The High Representative of the European Union for the Foreign policy and Seguridad Comu'n (PESC), Javier Solana, noticed of the inconvenience of an out of proportion reaction the terrorist threat and affirmed that Europe is not "in war" against the terrorism after the attacks of Madrid. After the attacks, in which 202 people died, "Europe is not in war", emphasized Solana in an interview granted to the newspaper German ' Bild a.m. Sonntag'. "We must energetically oppose the terrorism to us, but we do not have to change our form of life. We are democrats who love their freedom. If...

    Why Can’t Bubba Vote Democrat? by Allen Snyder OpEdNews.Com ‘Bubba’, you may recall, is the generic name for the guy Democratic presidential contender Howard Dean appealed to; the blue-collar white guy with the pick-up, Confederate Flag (if he’s a Southerner – the North has its Bubbas, too), gun rack, spit cup, NASCAR ball cap, ‘I Pledge to One Nation Under God’ bumper sticker, and big chip on his shoulder. It’s false that people who like NASCAR, Confederate flags, and guns are Bubbas and, being a professional critical thinker, I see the gross overgeneralization involved in saying so. Instead, we’ll say...
