Re: Group Runs Anti-Kerry Ads on Black Radio

I can't beleive it. I'm agreeing with Jim Babcock for a change.

Jim you're right. From what I understand if Harry Thruman didn't use that tactic, he wouldn't have won.

All of which goes to prove, "All's fair in love and war."

Bush Overhauls U.S. Regulations
By JOEL BRINKLEY

Published: August 14, 2004


WASHINGTON, Aug. 13 - April 21 was an unusually violent day in Iraq; 68 people died in a car bombing in Basra, among them 23 children. As the news went from bad to worse, President Bush took a tough line, vowing to a group of journalists, "We're not going to cut and run while I'm in the Oval Office."

[COLOR="Red"]On the same day, deep within the turgid pages of the Federal Register, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration published a regulation that would forbid the public release of some data relating to unsafe motor vehicles, saying that publicizing the information would cause "substantial competitive harm" to manufacturers[/COLOR]

If you want to read the whole thing it's on

"Substantial competitive harm!" What about my poor sorry rear end?

Let's be totally honest!

Honestly now; would you invite Bush to dinner? How about Kerry?

Ha! Just as I thought! You wouldn't have either one of them in your house for dinner! Well, neither would I!

Jim:

It just goes to illustrate a point that has often been made. Get the government involved with anything and it turns into multi-armed octopus quagmire.

As for any national security I feel that it is only a gigantic "show." Red, Orange, Yellow, hell what does it mean to anybody. I don't say it is totally hopeless but I could guarantee that if a corporation was running the show I'd feel a lot more safer.

Why should we expect one Presidential candidate to better on this than the other?

Absolutely not. I doubt if either one could understand what was going on in the first place. Smiling for the camera yes, nuclear physics HA!

Joe:

I suppose you'd also include in that judgment Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy, Johnson, Carter and Clinton. Hell, I thought the Vietnam War was a P of S. Does that make me a traitor also?

I just love those who classify people who dissent as traitors. Keep in mind that this nation was built on dissent. It's one of the prime liberties that we all have as long as we protect it. It's only when we let the bullies cowtow us will be loose that precious liberty.
