I got that pic from troops based over there and they thought it was about being a chicken. I wonder if the "who ever smelt it delt it" thought is apropo here? ;)

Extremesism be it the Taliban, Conservitive or Liberal is a bad thing. Once the pendulum swings too far one way it goes back too far the other.
If you didnt mind the patriot act infringements on your freedoms. Imagine those same laws with someone you don't like as President.

Which is worse corporate welfare or welafare for the poor? i'm against both when they are abused.
You are conservitive and are anti abortion. Yet you don't support welfare for those same babies that were born because of your beliefs? Explain that.
Should the banks be alowed to self regulate? What about the lead being found in our kids toys? Regulations have a place. We need to use our heads and not go to extremes.
I get really tired of hearing each side explain how the other screwed everything up.

Again I am an independant and think of the whole picture.

That sounds kind of scary. If you're into identifying racism then I guess you must have your own brand of prejudice. I like my own tribe. Most self-righteous people who say they aren't racist live in all white neighborhoods, with all white friends. If you can help me not be afraid when I'm watching American culture slowly but surely destroyed, please do so. Maybe you would like to take a stroll through the streets of Plainfield with me, if you're not confused as to what country you're in and you're not afraid for your life, then you will have my respect.

Kind of like driving your new caddy & parking right in front of the soup kitchen to have dinner.
Vegas is losing billions because of greed. The casinos in Pa. at least the one in Erie & washington are doing great. Maybe people that have money to lose figure they can lose more without air fares & expensive hotels.
I think everyone is staying a little closer to home these days.


Sam, I didn't give them a pass, I said when you play class warfare the little guy is always gonna lose. Maybe not a caddie in front of a soup kitchen, and I understand the thought process. Now this: http://www.nj.com/south/index.ssf/2007/ ... llion.html

I do work for P&W and others, I'm a blue collar guy as well. Just love hearing that guy they call a president talking down an industry to make a media sound bite and cost thousands of jobs. :? And he's on our side?

I thought P&W was pretty much a shadow of what it once was, at least what I remember of it. My mother lived in Hartford area for many years & my sister at that time in Storrs & now Windsor. My brother -in-law worked forP&W years ago before their big lay-off. I know the cost of living up there is still way high, I feel sorry for those that are out of work.

Yeah, it is. First thing, the Pratt & Whitney Airfield is now home to UCONN's Football Stadium called Rentschler Field and right next door to Cabelas Sporting goods now. They still have manufacturing and engineering right there just not the hugre complex you remember. They still have the Middletown facility too.

The Support manufacturing from surrounding area get smacked around, resturants, gas stations....we are all intertwined.

Thank NAFTA for that (and how many other lost American jobs?) One of the stupidest things to come out of BUSH 1 and then Clinton for thinking his changes before signing early in his first term would help save American jobs.

They went south to Florida and SC, not out of the country IIRC.

Happy that I am wrong - I read south to mean Mexico. NAFTA still stinks. :oops:

Sending jobs south to Mexico in and of itself is not a bad thing. It would be nice if the people there had nice jobs that paid well and they were safe from crime. That would keep our neighbors at home instead of here picking our pockets. The problem comes when there are not better ones here to replace them. When they sent them south, it should have been balanced with new high tech, medical or similar jobs here. Since we are turning into service society, we now have too many college graduates that are overqualified to peddle hamburgers. :roll:

Companies ran to the southern states to get away from snow & heating costs. First day of buck, things like that. Didn`t figure in the air conditioning & hurricanes not to mention whenever the catfish are biting. If you go to a lot of areas down there it`s all transplanted northerners. Just like now a lot have to pull up roots & follow the jobs.
