“Government testing .... once again. Do some research. There is plenty of declassified evidence regarding the government poisoning ...the first that comes to mind is Prohibition and poisoning the alcohol.
Could be the government was testing their "new" means of crowd-control for next year's New Year Eve's bash in NYC ... and need to test how much is too much?”
“Hmmmm .... I didn't see anyone complaining about how much the Bush Iraq "war" has been spent in dollars [and lives]. Does anyone have that dollar figure? I don't see that as "news" anymore. So all of you Faux News zoombies, what's that tally?”

“The current administration is spending more than all previous administrations COMBINED.”

“$18 million/hr. last I heard.
Not a Faux News zombie, just wanted to add to your point.”
“The same thing happened here in the Hampton Roads area. Obama's two latest visits drew crowds of 20,000 - 25,000 each time, while McCain drew only around 1,000 .... that is why I am so surprised as to how close the "count" was. Hmmmm ...”
“Why doesn't someone mention that our troops enlist, go thru boot camp, get shipped-out to Iraq, and then serve back-to-back tours ... and the Iraq's themselves, after 5 years, still, don't have it together? Seems to me that they are milking this ........ free (US) money to them?”

“Here's the most likely scenario for a McCain/Palin administration: it is business as usual in Iraq as we have a seamless move from Bush to McCain.. and 2 to 3 billion a week continue to flow directly from here to there.. any attempt to downsize our military presence in Iraq will be deemed a white flag by McCain, because McCain's standard for "victory" is unattainable during a military occupation... meanwhile the taliban continues to thrive while our military men and women and their families continue to be run into the ground.. then two years down the road an isolated Iran figures the only way to get anyone to talk to them is to develop a nuclear weapon, which either then gets us to talk to them or ... we "bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran" and military units are cycled between Iraq, Iran an Afganistan between 2 month stints at the "homefront".
The other scenario, McCain has a coronary in February 2009 and is in a persistent vegitative state. Palin has no idea whats going on in any of these countries and enlists Paul Wolfowitz and Dick Cheney as her advisors . . . . .”
“Ohhh, she crammed for this exam very well .... now let's see if she retains any of it. I doubt it, especially since she couldn't even state what recent periodical/magazine she's read to inform her of what's happening in the world.
Another thing .... drop the "slang" talk. Bad enough we now have the "village- idiot" representing our nation, we don't need a wannabe sounding like some kind of bar-fly. (I guess this is something she picked-up in "finishing school".) With all of her rehearsal and studying, I really thought she would have had more polish and class.
As for her verbatim cliche`s ... right out of the Repug playbook.
I was hoping Gwen would ask, "What do you think is the most important issue inner city children face at this time"? Being a country girl ... I don't think she could answer or could relate to big city life. She has no idea what goes on in the real world being she always touts about Wasilla Main St.”
“That is a bad, bad, BAD power of suggestion ... bad omen ... I hope I never see it play. Most people catch the beginning of an ad/commercial as they are walking out of the room and they may only see the first part of this and miss the last part ... which is the real message.
I would rather see an attack ad then this.”
“Does anyone know about THE CARLYLE GROUP and how involved they were regarding this economic collapse?”

“YankeeYahoo: I don't know all the details about this corruption, that caused this financial crisis, but I STRONGLY FEEL THE CEO"S SHOULD GIVE UP THOSE MILLIONS THEY WALKED OUT WITH, WE KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CHICKEN SALAD AND CHICKEN S--T”

“Don't say anything about str0kes. It will get a pending comment approval and will disappear.”
“I think the debates should be just that .... a debate. They should be sitting down at a table just like its done every Sunday morning with the pundits. I think we would get better results. This stiff and standing stuff just doesn't cut it. If anyone watches the Sunday morning programs ... they really get into it .”
