7. This is what I think the problem is with so many people
Edited on Sun Sep-02-07 09:21 AM by notadmblnd
who have no clue as to what is happening. They are so caught up in themselves and their daily lives that they can't pay attention. And they won't until the policies this administration have implemented effects them.

So I don't bring it up until I hear them complain about their Dr bills or the price of food and gas, or the lack of jobs and quality education. Then my response to them is that they can thank their president for that. I've found that if you talk to them about the events of the past six years in that context, they become much more open minded and willing to listen.
