They fund weapons manufacturers. They pay themselves outrageous salaries.
They make enemies then fund the military with 51% of our budget and give education 6%.
They incarcerate people for drug addiction and spend more money with them in jail than it would cost to pay them to go to school and give them hope.
When will Americans say enough is enough?

Lieberman lost his bid to be reelected in the primary. His conservative leaning, pro-war stance was rejected by his Democratic base.
Will the others in the Democratic party take heed?
The upcoming elections will be interesting.

Recently, British Petroleum revealed that it is shutting down the Alaska pipeline from the largest oil field in America which it owns. 15 out of 22 miles of pipeline have to be replaced because of a leak from corroded pipes that have not been maintained because they did not have the money to keep the maintenance up!
A huge oil leak has resulted in fines against them when the US government discovered the leaks and filed criminal charges.
Now, prices of gas are going to skyrocket!
The largest oil field in America owned and operated by British Petroleum!
How do you feel about this?

Universal Health Care
UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE
A movement is underway to provide health care for all Californians by www.HealthCareforAll.org and www.OneCareNow.org. They want to see SB 840 passed in the California legislature. Currently, it appears that the Democratic challenger Angelides is promising to sign the bill. While unlikely that he will sign if it passes, Gov. Swartzenegger has not signaled his intentions.
Under this bill, ALL people physically located in the state, including illegal immigrants will be eligible for health care. The argument is that people who wait to get medical treatment because they cannot afford it, end up costing more money because their conditions get more serious and they go to the emergency rooms.
This plan aims at prevention. It allows people to get medical assistance at affordable rates.
This is a great idea. What is questionable is:
1. When people hear of a universal health care system will it encourage more illegal immigration?
2. Will cancer and diabeties patients from all over the country/world come to California to seek medical treatment?
3. Can tariffs be placed on the imports of goods of countries with citizens using this program to recoup our tax dollars? Can international aid be cut to recoup the costs? Can other countries be billed for the health care received by their citizens?
A lot needs to be thought out. It is in principal and idea of merit.

Who Will Stop Israel!
The illegal formation of Isreal in 1948 has lead to this "War on Terror" and America being hated all over the world.
Our government gives 100 Million dollars to the Jewish state that could be used to build schools, repair our roads and provide health care to Americans.
Now, the Jews murder helpless people with weapons the American people give to them. The oppressed have become the oppressors. Who will stop them? Who will stop our government from squandering our tax dollars and causing people all over the world to hate us?
