    I am an American living in New Zealand. Sorry about the beating you took the other day by the All Blacks. That said, rugby sucks.

    I do not know.
    So we do have one honest man here, if nothing else.
    The conservatives and liberarians will tell me that it is too big.
    The liberals will tell be its not.
    All these "tellers" can go to hell with their sick and not so sick agenda and lies.

    It seems that you tolerate lies being repeated by your corporately run media and government, but get all squirmish and uncomfortable when the truth is aired in public

    I can understand that - its difficult, I realise that, but you must muster up enough personal courage and character integrity to face up to the moral monster that your Corpocracy has turned into

    This is not the time to run away or bend over in front of the Corporate Tyrrant to be spiritually de-rimmed
    Should this not be in the conspiracy-theory section of debate politics ??

    Good is bad, black is white, up is down, right is left, freedom is slavery, democracy is Corpocracy......

    Quite the assessment from a man 5,000 miles away...do you listen to our right wing talk-radio ? Or, is this possible...?
    But, I am right here, and have been for nearly three quarters of a century.....you have a rich imafination....based on what ???
    But, yes, in my opinion, we do have a propaganda machine...and things can be much better, but your CPs ...well, they are off the wall male bovine feces.

    The problem is not with the size. It's with the purpose and effectiveness. It does seem to be corrupt and incompetent in many ways. Not much chance of that changing in this millenium.

    As I see it, the incorrect purpose and ineffectiveness are both the symptom and the reason for it's size. Kinda.
