Selling America

What is with our elected representatives, both the Senate and Congress? Why have they rolled over and playing dead? They have sat back and let George and his henchmen do as they please. Why have they not taken up and used the Constitutional powers designated to them?


Why indeed? Remember the dummying down of this country as begun by Reagan and company? Well, it has at last been successful. The truth is the American people do not have enough knowledge of how this government is supposed to work. They have bought into the idea that the President is the supreme ruler of the country and has the power to do as he pleases. I'm afraid, too, that there is gross ignorance within the legislative bodies and they don't know what to do either. A good course of study in civics should be a requirement for them before they take office. Is civics even taught any more? What about ethics?


How can this president and his people negotiate unilaterally to sell off to foreign powers our most critical assets? Six, I believe it is of our largest ports, which are critical to every aspect of our being. Can we afford to let foreign powers control this? Let's go ahead and let him sell off the other vital assets of our infrastructure. How about our hospitals, schools, power generating plants, water treatment plants, and our Interstate road system? Someone stands to profit handsomely from shenanigans like this, and it won’t be the American people.


I'm not sure Cheney hasn't already cut a deal with the energy companies to allow them to sell out to foreign interests since we have never had any report of his secret meeting with them.  Congress must reassert itself. This country must be returned to the people. Examine critically those candidates running for Congress this fall, and let's get some legislators in place that are not a bunch of wimps and yes men, someone that will do the job and earn their salary.

I think we can see where this is going. First, he sells off the ports. Don't we carry out a lot of military activities at the ports?
Next will be our military bases. Much of the logistical operations have already been turned over to private concerns. Providing meals, transportation, etc.
After selling all these off and dividing the profits, next will be additional massive tax cuts for the rich because those assets sold will not be included any more in the budget. It all comes down to greed and money. That's the bottom line – the only bottom line, and we all know who will benefit.

    Maybe a lot of out ports are run by foreign companies, but in this one is a part of a foreign government. A government that is connected to terrorism, excuse me if I’m wrong but isn’t that why we’re in Iraq?

    Do you wonder why Bush wants to make this sell? If so, this might answer a few question.

    Video-QT
    DOBBS: President Bush's family and members of the Bush administration have long-standing business connections with the United Arab Emirates, and those connections are raising new concerns and questions tonight in some quarters about why the president is defying his very own party leadership and his party in defending the Dubai port deal.

    You guys are just going to have to learn to trust the President. He knows what he's doing and wouldn't ever sell us out to the terrorists. This is not a treasonous President, if he says the ports will be safe then they'll be safe. I know a lot of people hate Arabs and that's what a lot of this boils down to, just racism. That's wrong and I'm surprised that liberals who say they're for equality would discriminate on race.

    What is racist about wanting to protect ourselves from terrorism? Blondie you said we should “learn to trust the President” but why? Was he telling the truth about the WMD?
