    It's a start. few things are done in a wholesale way. Change is often slow and painful. Need often brings about real change. Too often we get complacent and wait when SOME action would do us better.

    What we do need is those man enough to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth - no matter how much its hurts.
    Yet we still have the intellectually-challenged who subscribe to the right-wing agenda...
    Also, I'd be more concerned about the possibility of America's Chennoble....(I advocate far more nuclear power).
    We have far too much fear and ignorance

    "Contributions" to any elected offical must be stopped.
    Part of reform.....
    Taxes must be increased and the government must bear a limited(very limited) cost of a man running for office.
    The question is " Is our government up to this added duty?"..

    That person would never get elected.

    Didn't the Supreme Court just strike that idea down as unconstitutional?

    Re: Palin says Obama is in bed with big oil!

    "Palin says" I stopped right there and started laughing

    Doesnt mean its not true what she said and doesnt mean that anything she says cant be sound and logical its just at this point anything that comes out of her mouth is laughable and meaningless.

    AGain she should say something true and smart but hey its her. It be a like 8yr old telling you about brain surgery, he might have just seen something on TV and be 100% right but you just laugh cause he is 8
    PURE STUPIDITY 1.) Glenn Beck doesnt lie. 2.) Obama is Jesus like 3.) Sara Palin is so smart & shes a great speaker. 4.) Obama does just about everything perfect. 5.) Fox doesn' t lean right 6.) Pro-Choice is no different than Pro-Slavery 7.) MSNBC doesn't lean left. 8.) What TSA does is no different than sexual assault & child porn.

    Oil companies are not intrinsically bad, but after watching the coverage of the Gulf Spill, you can't help but know that oil companies sometimes do some pretty stupid and bad things in the name of profit.

    Re: Palin says Obama is in bed with big oil!

    It always makes me laugh when Palin wants to talk about someone being in bed with Big Oil. However she is probably right about Obama being an oil sucker. After all, the corporations seem to have the upper hand when it comes to getting laws passed or removed. But don't forget... This is the same woman who said "Drill baby Drill" every time someone handed her a microphone. Maybe she is just a little upset because Obama gets to sleep right next to the CEO and she doesn't.

    They're not bad, as in morally reproachable. But they are bad as in criminal negligence.
