Who is your favorite vice president?

I'm going with Al Gore, Walter Mondale, and Joe Biden.

There is something wrong with the court system in this country when...

the president isn't impeached for lying us into war, torturing prisoners, murdering 130, 000 people, and signing illegal legislation (PATRIOT ACT), but he is impeached for cheating on his wife and getting a blowjob.

President Carter's Parade magazine interview

Just read it. Great interview from a great man. Keep up the good work, President Carter.

Isn't it funny?

When Governor George W. Bush ran for the Republican nomination for president in 2000, none of the conservatives/Republicans were questioning his political experience. But in 2008 when the Muslim, Antichrist, terrorist, black, Kenyan America-hating Senator Barack H. Obama was running, people were. Let's see. Before his time in the US Senate, Obama spent 7 years (1997 - 2004) as an Illinois State Senator. In 2000, when the Dub ran, he had served for five years as Governor of Tennessee, fool me once and shame on you, I mean Texas (1995 - 2000) and that's it. Hmm... Seems unfair doesn't it. The Kenyan muslim who obviously chilled with his homie Osama bin Laden actually had more political experience (11 years) than President Shrub, and they aren't questioning the minscule Bush? What's going on here? I'll tell you...political bias. I mean, not that it NECESSARILY matters how much previous political experience, if any, a person has, I just want someone who can get the job done. I'm just saying that it is unfair.

What are your favorite movies?

Besides an interest in politics, I am a lifelong film buff. In fact, I wanna be a screenwriter, producer and director someday. I like any genre (drama, thriller, horror, comedy, documentary, political, animation, etc.) you name the genre, I like it. Anyway, here are my 10 favorite films in order:
1. The Dark Knight (2008)
2. Saving Private Ryan (1998)
3. The Kid (1921)
4. Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)
5. The Road (2009)
6. Pulp Fiction (1994)
7. WALL-E (2008)
8. Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004)
9. The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
10. Fly Away Home (1996)

Bill O'Reilly criticizes Iraq War and Cheney

I am posting this from my phone so I can't put up the video, but you read that right. Last week, Former President Cheney (notice I said president and not vice president) appeared on The O'Reilly Factor and the Fox News host accused the former president of having lied to get us in and saying "what was it worth?" Of course, Shrub's puppetmaster was responding saying, even though this has all been debunked, that there was a connection between Iraq and 9/11.

Your thoughts on Harry S Truman

I just read that he left office with a 28% approval rating and that his lowest Gallup rating of 22% recorded in March 1952 is the lowest ever recorded in the history of the poll (Richard Nixon's lowest was 24% in August 1974, Shrub's was lowest was 25% in October 2008, Carter had only 28% in June 1979, and Papa Bush had 29% in February 1992). I can't see what was so bad about him. The Korea War was kind of out of control and slightly unnecessary but other than that, I really can't think of anything bad about the guy. Your thoughts?

Casey Kasem's wife says he is dying.

Casey Kasem, 81, the former radio-personality is in terminally ill health and has only a few months left to live, according to his wife. I am posting this on my phone so I can't post any links, but this is definately sad news, being that I was a HUGE Scooby-Doo fan when I was younger.

Am I the only one who thinks The Beatles are overrated hacks?

And who thinks their music sucks and suffers from crappy writing? Not trying to piss off Beatles fans. I'm just stating my opinion and trying to see if there others out there like me.

Lies about Ronald Reagan

1. Lowered taxes. (Not true Reagan RAISED taxes by 11% 7 out of his 8 years as president. He is the only president in history to lower taxes on the wealthy while at the same time, raised taxes on the poor.)
2. Was against immigration (wrong again. Reagan granted amnesty to illegal immigrants)
3. Loved America (No he didn't. He hated America and as a result, began a destructive path of destroying America.)
4. Loved the constitution and freedom (Again, WRONG. Broke the law by illegally selling weapons to Iraq to fund Contras in Nicaragua and was against Separation of Church and State. Oh and by the way, Reagan was for gun control and was reported as having said himself "why do ordinary citizens need the same kinds of weapons as the military and the police?").
5. Reaganomics was a success (No, it was not. Reagan spent more than any president between Washington and Carter. Worst spending president in history. Reagan inherited a debt of $8 billion and ended his presidency with a $3 trillion debt.)

The only people who like Reagan are the rich who benefited from his policies.
