    No. Politicians don't define me at all.

    Post-Sandy it was awesome on my block. People, without any help, rigged their trucks to pull down broken down branches caught in wires because we didn't feel like waiting. We helped each other with generators and sharing of gas. My pride resides in within the US people, which i totally believe in. Not alphabet agencies.

    Good point..same here

    But I have to say, after about 3 days...folks were stealing gas, generators from old people...IDK. I hate to be pessimistic

    Anyway, this thread is more about the leaders...not the general population. People are people...anywhere, it's the same shit. good and bad

    From what you could see, he squirmed, tried a thinly veiled insult...just like the rat he is

    I just read that on average, those voting YES to go into syria, received 87% more campaign funds from military contractors than those who voted NO...disgusting

    I mean, that shit is treasonous

    I'm embarrassed at the way most of the rest of the world views America.

    Stew I agree with you. People are people all over the world. Trying to work for a living, providing food and shelter for their families, looking to make things better for their kids than it was for them. It's this way with 99% of the people on this earth. It's that 1% that fucks it all up for the rest.

    Ehhh, judging by what I see, yes. America is descending into a pit of stupidity, and it's sad to see.

    Great flick. Not so great that it is probably where we're headed.

    seems so....we LOL @ european taxes....yes, they tax their rich heavily. But their wealth gap is not insane like ours. I mean, if you tax the super rich, whats the diff to them whether they have 20 million dollar or 40 million dollars? And at what cost to the general public. Isn't it better for the rich if they aren't surrounded by a populous that is destitute?

    I have no problem with people getting rich. My problem is with who it is that's getting rich. Does someone that entertains us deserve to make millions of dollars just to make a movie or throw a pass? Not really. Does a doctor that can operate on your brain to save your life deserve to be rich? Sure. Should someone like Howard Stern damn near be a billionaire? Hell no. Does someone like Bill Gates deserve to be a billionaire? Probably.

    How about a salary cap Stew :jj:
