I think some of you have some confusion about reality. If a president stands up and says something, it isn't neccessarily the truth. If fact it rarely is. Unless you have already made millions and are just trying to hang onto every penny by using the current policies created by the current administration then you have got a lot to loose and nothing to gain by this administration. I live in Texas and have been closely monitoring what GW and his cronies have been doing for some time. It's not borderline criminal, it IS CRIMINAL. Tom Delay's situation, rezoning the freaking voting districts to squelch opposition in the poles, Proposition 12, the list goes on. The admin. here in Texas has been working overtime to figure ways to hold on to their fortunes no matter what. That's ok for the most part but, when that money is stripped from the places it belongs it's wrong. IE. When you promise to save the public tons of cash on medical expenses, insurance, etc. by squashing frivelous law suits (Prop. 12 which caps medical malpractice suits to $250,000) and once it's passed it is all forgotten about then it's wrong. It's been two years and I don't know anyone that has saved money on their med insurance. They definately haven't sent me a check for a portion of the billions they are saving. But there have been a lot of doctors and insurance companies let off the hook for their "oops I killed your wife, child, mother, etc" screw ups for chump change. I'm sorry but my mother was the recipient of medical malpractice and she was worth a lot more than $250K. Seriously, if you want to post beepbeepbeepbeep like "food for thought", then do yourself and us a favor by researching both sides of the fence. I'm not totally against everything Bush has done. For instance, I can't fathom the thought of having to drive an electric car only on paved highways like Gore's tree hugging beepbeepbeep would of had us. And I enjoy having my AR15 and other guns to shoot any time I wish to legally. But, I would much rather make enough money to pay for the food me and my family eat then to be forced to go out and illegally hunt for game to eat. Because, when the middle class is disolved and society turns into the "haves and have nots" I doubt I as a career professional firefighter, as most people will not be included in the "haves".
