Within the last hour CNN

Yawns....watching CNN is your first problem. No bias there at all.”


It is not CNN it was the Video Clip of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs before Congress, the Quotation of the Army CoS and the statements of General Powell. If you think these opinions are boring you need HELP! That goes without saying. Who cares if was on CBS, CNN, Fox or what ever. It is the SOURCE that is significant AND CNN was...

Am I the only one who sees the humor in those?

It's like a little kid who screams for attention when people ignore him.

I also notice in genes articles he never "cites" his sources.


Let me provide a source. Today on Late Edition on CNN Gen Powell was interviewed and asked about the deployment levels in Iraq. As part of that clip, CNN played a video of the testimony of the Chairman of the Joint chiefs before Congress as well a...

I sight what the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs and Army Chief of staff said and some how I am blasting McCain. NO I am pointing out the inconsistency between what our top military leaders are saying and the position of Bush which McCain supports and says he will continue.

Gene has switched from bashing Bush to bashing McCain. I wonder which payroll he is on....Obama or Hillarys.

I see gene is still try to speak about what "Americ...

The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs will report to Congress that we MUST reduce the Army combat tours from 15 to 12 months and provide longer periods between combat tours and his position is in agreement with the Army CoS.

This puts our top military leaders at odds with a policy that we continue troop strength in Iraq at anything close to the 130,000 levels Bush and McCain support. In addition it does not appear our NATO allies are willing to increase their troop commitments in Afghanistan w...

“That's because this bill was meant to stimulate the economy not help the poor. The money was put in the hands of those they believed would best use it to stimulate the economy. Paying bills and putting the money away for a raining day will not stimulate the economy and is what most likely will happen if the money was given to the wrong people.

Besides, money will go to more people than you said they would, maybe you should read my article and begin to retract your articles you fool! “

GOP blocks Senate stimulus package
The Senate has failed to break a Republican filibuster on an economic stimulus bill that would give $44 billion in rebate checks to the elderly, disabled veterans, the poor and unemployed. The tally was 58-41, two shy of ending debate.. ... The Associated Press and New York Times have more on the political wrangling.

One of the no votes was Senator Reid to enable the bill to be voted again. The truth is that had McCain voted YES this package would have pas...

Bush, McCain and the GOP Ignored our Disabled Vets! This is true no matter who said it!
February 7, 2008 by COL Gene
It took the Democrats in the Senate to help our disabled vets. Bush, McCain and MOST of the GOP Senators ignored the needs of our disabled Vets. When Bush and the GOP members of Congress tell us they are the party of national defense you know they are full of BS. How could any Commander in Chief or Member of Congress who exclude our disabled Vets be supportive of the military?

Now people on JoeUser claim extending unemployment benefits and including rebates to people who make less then $3,000 is PORK. WHAT BS! These are not only the two actions that would be MOST successful in providing a more effective stimulus to the economy but also help those who need help the Most. The illogic that appears on Joe User and is shown by the Conservatives in the Senate is amazing!

If we give that money to individuals who spend it at Wal-Mart, it will NOT create U.S. Jobs and will not help our economic problems! It will just add more to the national debt![/quote]


Glad to see you read what I write. What I said is consistent. People with a job and some income are very likely to spend some or most of the rebates in Wal-Mart. However people with NO job or people with incomes below $3,000 will spend it on food and more essential things more of which are made in the U.S. A...

My Blog about the GOP help for disabled vets and the poor says “These people not only have denied the most effective elements of any stimulus package” The truth is that the very elements that would be MOST effective to stimulate spending are the very elements that the GOP blocked.

What is more effective then extending unemployment benefits? People without a job do not spend money. The continuation of the unemployment benefits would have mean they could continue to by food, clothing etc.

WHY did McCain not vote on the Senate Bill to give disabled Vets and the very poor rebates? Why did McCain not support millions of unemployed from receiving unemployment benefits? McCain’s vote to pass the stimulus bill would have been the 60th vote and would have passed this bill. He choose NOT to vote so he did not piss off the Conservatives while turning his back on our disabled vets, the poor and the unemployed. If that is what you mean by being a Conservative I want none of it. McCa...

The GOP senators have blocked help to 250,000 Disabled Vets who do not earn enough to receive the rebates and have blocked millions of unemployed from extending their benefits.

These people not only have denied the most effective elements of any stimulus package but show they DO NOT care about the people in our country that NEED help. For the GOP to tell us they care about our military and deny 250,000 disabled vets the rebates is sickening.

All the leading GOP Presidential candidates tell the voters that if Obama or Clinton is elected their taxes will go up. That is a LIE!!!!! I looked at the positions of both Clinton and Obama and they support increasing taxes for families making OVER $250,000 per year.

I looked at the latest income data and that means only 5% of Americans would have a tax increase. McCain, Huckibee and Romney make it sound like all of us will see our taxes increase if a Democrat is elected. NOTHING could ...
