    You wanna know another reason for Americas decline. Greed.

    If I become the best firefighter in the world, I'd consider myself ****ing successful. Would I make alot of money... no!

    You can have all the money in the world, and not have accomplished **** all. I'd rather have done something meaningful with my life, then have heeps and heeps of cash that I earned sitting behind some desk denying people Health Care Coverage to keep a healthy profit margin.
    I got ya. And I even said that there are many facets of success. I am by no means rich, unless you count my family, and my beautiful wife of 22 years as being rich. You do have a point that wealth not necessarily success, but if your goals are to live a good life, and make sure your children have a better life than you did, then wealth is a part of that is it not? Nothing is free in this world.

    It has been my observation that the kind of people that participate in such false witness are a proud bunch. They rarely, if ever, admit they were wrong regardless of the writing on the wall. And I do not recall, as of late, any of those FAUXsters ever apologizing for spreading these falsehoods. They usually just disappear from the thread and pop up on another trying to spread an altogether different lie.

    But they don't do it because Obama is black/muslim/democrat/liberal/foreign born, or whatever, right?
    I have challenged a few of my email friends who send out that kind of stuff, and only a few will send out a new email admitting their "mistake", which is repeating something before verifying it to be true. It is as if they really WANT to believe the worst of Obama.
    I tell them that the truth makes a stronger argument, and that lies damages their own credibility, but somehow that message has no legs...
    I also tell them that the GOP is to blame for a democrat being in the Whitehouse....and most of them will accept that as true. If the GOP was doing a good job, the voters would support them and re-elect them. But that didn't happen. They had better hope that the DEMS haven't learned that lesson, as well. Or 2102 could see a shift back to a democratic party control of both houses, and Obama serving a second term...

    While I think that's hardly what he's doing, why would it be a problem if that were what he's doing?

    Pride should never stand in the way of intelligent, rational thought. If India could help you all with your massive economic woes, you ought to readily admit that you have massive economic woes and ask India for help.
