    The Democrats have had Congress for Year.

    Let's see where we're at, everything they have proposed is anti-business, anti-oil and tax increases. Unemployement is rising the ecomony is in the sewer, oil prices are only going to get worse. Their energy package has nothing in for new existing sources, no nucular, no new clean coal power plants, no new oil. The Chinese and Cubans will be drilling oil off our shores and we'll have to buy it from them. Like or not we'll be running on oil for at least the next 25 years until something better comes along.

    They want us to be like the Europeans so take a quick look. They drive small cars and motorbikes and have good public transportation. We have awlful public transportation our roads are not really set up for safe communting by motorbike and most small cars will never get to the consumers in this country.

    You see it, I see it, but it seems like general population doesn't. The media puts a whole different spin on it and majority of people believe them. My own governer who is a republican and who I voted for is jumping on the global warming bandwagon. He just signed some energy pact for renewable energy. Energy is just going to get more and more expensive until the economy crumbles.
    The statements and opinions made here are of Copper51's only. They do not reflect my department or the city I work for.
    So lay off, I'm offduty and spouting off.

    Hey, but at least the Great Alaskan Snail Darting Swamp Rat Flea has been saved from extinction...

    I hope people wise up and see what's going on. Yea, Great Alaskan Snail Darting Swamp Rat Flea hangs around the pipeline which gives it a better environment to live in, keeps it warm in the winter, just ask the caribou.

    I think fair tax alone would boost our economy significantly.

    What this country does is punish the successful, and encourage/support the poor and Dependant.

    If I can go out and create a successful multi billion dollar business, why must my profits be taxed excessively? Where is the motivation when I'll be lucky to see 65% of what I make?

    Why must my hard earned cash go to support those who choose not to work, and not to strive for success when I have tried so hard to earn my current economical status?

    Taxes lower hard working Americans motivation from working hard and being successful by taking inproportionate amounts of tax, while the poor continue to get support in the forms of Welfare and Medicaid for doing nothing.

    Where is the motivation to work harder, earn more money, and spend it (which keeps our econemy going strong)? I get taxed earning my money, I get taxed spending my money, and I get taxed for owning my own home that I worked hard for.

    Why even bother Uncle Sam?

    For anyone that is thinking of satalite radio, look up Andrew Wilkow on Sirius radio, and join the Wilkow Majority.
