One thing has been a real success in the present administration. It is bringing the country to bankruptcy faster than old Ronnie did.

I'm somewhat conservative, a registered Republican all my life, and can't forgive the present-day Republicans for their "spend without taxing" policy.

Since I'm not at home in today's GOP and wouldn't feel at home as a Democrat, where do I go? Certainly not a Libertarian ... the "I'm all right Jackf" party.

Both major parties seem to be pandering to unhealthy elements.

I think you'll find that the number you're searching for is "6", SASless.

6......

Oh, and another thing, SASless..... these references to my "bush-bashing".

As I said to Paterbrat earlier this evening, instead of putting words into my mouth why not quote a couple of examples where I've actually indulged in this heinous activity?

You know......put up or shut up, sort of thing?

Please feel free to hold your breath while you're looking for an example.

Prediction

The 2008 presidential race will be between two heroic mayors:

Rudy Giuliani and Ray Nagin.

Spuds, Lima, OW,

So sorry you are reduced to cartoons, expressions of disgust, and inside jokes. May you always have each other with whom to giggle and chortle at we, the unenlightened.

You guys need to realise that the vast majority of the world outside the US can't stand Bush and they think he is a misguided fool.

The quicker you guys get rid of this embarrassment to your once great country, the better.

That's just the way it is.

Don't get agro at me because their are a couple of billion who agree with me - sorry, just the way it is!

Perhaps as the leading nation in the world and the self-appointed world policeman then America should allow all the world's citizens to vote for the next President of the USA.

Trouble is if the vote doesn't suit some then they will still cry "Foul" and not let it rest!

People. Democracy is all about respecting the wishes of the majority and quietly getting on with the business of opposition -which involves coming up with sound arguments which will convince the majority of people to vote for your lot next time around. It does not consist of pathetic whinging and banging on about "we wuz robbed - the guy's and idiot etc etc etc".

As I have said before - this seems to be a modern malaise of anything broadly described as 'left of centre' who seem unable to accept the refs decision. There seems to be an arrogance that there is only one way of doing things - their way. Generally speaking, anything 'right of centre' tends to quietly get on with it.

Are you including China and India in that, Ben? Do the two most populous nations on the planet follow the Bush line?

I think your presumed majority exists only in Europe and the world-wide left, which doesn't have the only say in defining who is an American embarassment and who is not. And my country remains great, your opinion notwithstanding.
As you rightly say - your nation and its people are, and will remain, great. Only a fool would say otherwise.

Your politicians, like ours, are a different matter altogether.

The wise do not confuse the two, or pretend that they are one and the same.

The focus should be on a group of mostly Jewish bunch of pseudo politicians known as the neo-cons.

I'm not sure if folks understand the purpose of this thread so perhaps I should reiterate. Only folks who have a beef against the US government should be posting here. Think of it as the watering hole where they can engage in mutual backslapping and great rejoicing in their shared mindset of hatred for said government. It should also serve as a place where, when posts in other threads start to turn into just another Bush/US rant, then they can be deposited here instead of the original thread and thus keep that thread on track.

Folks who don't fall into the above designation don't need to post here at all. Just let the usual suspects spout their anti US/Bush vitriol here amongst their own kind.

Hope that helps.

Thanks Ozzy! As I said it's a great idea, i don't think you need to explain it!

But one thing, please don't say Anti US/Bush as if they're not Mutually exclusive. I am an American after all and I am anti Bush. So does that make me anti-American as well? Am I somehow anti-myself?

Or do you have some other classification for me and nearly 50% of the US population?

A typical sly tactic of the right wing neo-fascists, classify anyone "Anti-Bush" as "Anti-American"

Also, Ozzy has a mate in US Customs and Immigration who told him that it would be just great if we could all be organised into a single thread. That way, they can more easily keep track of us and ensure the welcome mat is put out for when we eventually fly through there. Can someone tell me how they check to see if anyone's making an ass of themselves?!

Sorry OW22, "US/Bush" means "US or Bush" there are some, not you, who hate the US as much as they hate Bush, so this is their forum too....

Think of it as your opportunity to have a central place to bitch and moan about Bush et al and then deal with others who in general think the US is a decadent, capitalistic, world ignorant, soda pop guzzling, World Series Baseball (when it's only the US in the running), grossly obese, thick in the head, tartan pant clad, redneck, gun toting, SUV driving, drug plagued, racist, self centered, gas guzzling, and celebrity worshiping society.

Ozzy

PS and when you throw logic at the lefty luvvies they get all emotional and resort to throwing insults

Hmmm, "with or without you" might have been more apt, if no less controversial, and definitely less offensive. But I suppose one rarely heard U2 in the Dixieland bars George used to frequent...?!
