    Buffalo, NY: $398,550,--- and rising...

    District of Columbia: $2,187,566,--- and rising

    Consider the costs...

    * $4,681 per household.

    "Taxpayers in Olympia, Washington have paid $76.4 million for the Iraq War thus far. For the same amount of money, the following could have been provided:
    1,023 Port Container Inspectors
    "

    Now, granted the Port of Olympia wouldn't need anywhere near that number of port inspectors. But we could share them with the rest of the Puget Sound area.....and probably still have enough to spare. And do a Hell of a lot more to protect this country from any real potential terrorist threat in the process.

    Better yet, stop importing so much fucking Chinese crap and there won't be as much to inspect.

    Well, that’s one way to beat Communism.
    Flood them with all our worthless currency. Borrow trillions we will never be able to pay back. Pretty soon all that cheap shit they are sending us, no one will be able to afford it here, thus making China the holder of worthless currency, enormous debt and products they can not sell………………………………............

    Wait a minute? You don’t think….Nah…that was just happenstance, right?

    Ignore him, kwame...

    we all do.

    He's only here to hijack threads between beer runs to AM/PM for another 18-pak of PBR

    He'll tank up, and go surf for gay amputee porn soon enough...

    Someone told me long ago theres a calm before the storm,
    I know; its been comin for some time.
    When its over, so they say, itll rain a sunny day,
    I know; shinin down like water.

    Chorus:
    I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?
    I want to know, have you ever seen the rain
    Comin down on a sunny day?

    Yesterday, and days before, sun is cold and rain is hard,
    I know; been that way for all my time.
    til forever, on it goes through the circle, fast and slow,
    I know; it cant stop, I wonder.

    Which is why I'd rather go back to when we actually made stuff in the US. Imports existed, but there were tariffs in place to keep the corporations from doing all the shit they are doing now, outsourcing for cheap labor.

    There were plenty of Japanese and German cars here in the 70's, and Japanese electronics for that matter, but it wasn't killing US business or labor.

    Essentially, we need to undo everything done to the economy over the last 28 years. "Trickle Down Economics" amounts to pissing on the middle class, and they have just about pissed it out of existence.

    Damn dude, it's nearly impossible to find anything made here anymore. Off the top of my head I can think of Buck Knives. Actually one of the products made much better than any other & proudly in the USA. But even the long time American staples Chevy & Ford have most of their parts made overseas or Mexico.

    Just remembered Budweiser, Miller & Coors. But just the beer. If you get a Budweiser t-shirt, chances are it was made in Taiwan.

    Why do they need me? The Repukes have already lost...

    BTW Thome, you keep spamming this thread (which is typical when a bee gets into your panties about something), your responses will be removed to another place...

    I still wanna know why I have to "Enlist "in order to post my op?

    You all post non-stop about "Things" and I see no stripes on your shirt?

    If I wasn't to old, I may think about it.

    Too bad the war isn't at club med, they always fight these things in the bad areas of the world against the real assholes of the world.
