Once again proof that Democrats refuse to accept basic economics and yet another reason I will never vote Dem.


Yeah.... like the basic economics of spending every penny ourselves, children, and grandchildren are likely to make -- stripping aid to those in real need -- and refusing to raise taxes to pay for any of this madness. Bush really understand economics all right. What a genius!

And... the Democrats are not compassionate and caring like the Republicans who care SO much for the elderly that they have caused them nothing at all but grief:

This country is on the verge of breaking apart.
(I'm serious about this.)
Families have broken up since the Republicans have taken office -- broken up to the point where brother and sister and parents no longer even speak to each other. People talk of leaving the country altogether. Others talk of some states breaking away and forming their own nation. Yet others talk of the shame they feel that other nations see what we have done and are doing wrt torture and thumbing our noses at real freedom and democracy while we march steadily toward a kind of theocratic fascism.

This is the first time I have ever heard such talk or witnessed such personal devastation on this kind of scale in this country. I'm not sure if it is too late to turn it around or if it is simply beyond saving at this point. But the cracks are there and they are widening.

This is really serious stuff we are talking about here -- way more serious than "I'm right, you're wrong" arguments between Democrats and Republicans. I just wonder if enough of us have the smarts to recognize what is happening ... or will we simply continue annointing those wheels of division as we continue down the road to ruin...
