Mr. Lohrmann -

To echo Carl's question, "Who are you supporting in this year's presidential 

Or are you simply a representative of the "Oh No" squad who stand around an 
accident saying "Oh no.  Oh no." without anything of value to add?

Tom Hansen
Intolerista Liberal Elitista to the Stars

Americans? So what?
>    Don't tell "our" voters/consumers that they're lacking the "vision thing." 
They should
just be happy that we still even have the choice of Coke or Pepsi,,,um....
>    Allow other candidates (candidates with their names on the ballots in 
enough states to
win the Presidency) into debates to present their views to voters?
>    Naaah, leave it to us---we've gotta repress...er restrict political 
debate. We dont
want  "our" debate watching audience getting confused by ideas. 
>   After all there IS a genuine difference in how these two candidates would 
take the war in Iraq for example. Sure they're both for it---one proposed it 
and the other
voted for it. The difference is.....lessseee....oh yeah....Kerry would send 
40,000 more
troops. Yeah, that's it!

millionaire, sure he
and his family's massive trust profits directly from a huge multi-national 
companies that
outsource jobs while campaigning against it, sure he is for the war, NAFTA, 
FTAA etc. etc. just like his "Conservative" opponent.

I'm stunned.  Tim-- are you implying that here, in the United States of 
America, major
political party candidates are not selected from the check-out line at the Wal-
Mart?  That
we don't look in the oil pit at Jiffy Lube for our commanders in chief?  Good

handed social
safety net featuring universal health care, a guaranteed living wage for full-
time work,
and a good, well-funded, accessible state education, I don't think there will 
be any
future presidents born in the Stadium Way Trailer Court.  Sorry.  This is not a
meritocracy, and that's a shame.  A terrible shame.

their SAVINGS . . . thanks to this lop-sided tax cut are far larger than most 
of our
annual incomes.  The rich are truly getting richer, and the poor are getting 
poorer.  The
question, for me, is not whether George and Dick are as rich as John, but what 
intend, respectively, to do for those who haven't been born with a silver foot 
in their
mouths -- those who instead got a mouth full of athlete's foot, or Plantar's 
wart, or
toenail fungus.  I hate to get all Biblical on you, but "to whom much is given, 
from him
that much more shall be expected."  Our rampant tax-cutting friends have been
systematically turning this maxim on its ear since the early 1970s.  Enough.
