Returning from his eighth trip to Iraq, McCain didn't back down on his promise to see the war through despite yesterday's tragic milestone of 4,000 deaths. "We're succeeding. I don't care what anybody says. I've seen the facts on the ground," the Arizona senator insisted a day after a roadside bomb in Baghdad killed four U.S. soldiers and rockets pounded the U.S.-protected Green Zone there, and a wave of attacks left at least 61 Iraqis dead nationwide.
On The Economy:
McCain wants to cut government spending and make the tax cuts for the wealthy permanent and eliminate the estate tax. I ask you, where are we going to get the money to pay for the $2-billion per week war we're fighting, pay for VA benefits, bail out homeowners to avoid foreclosures, and give Americans the Social Security funds they've worked hard for and paid for? It sounds like a bunch of smoke and mirrors to me. You can't reduce revenue and increase costs then expect to have all the money needed for the social programs we have in place.
Who'll lose out ... not the rich.

For those of you who can identify with the above issues you belong in the McCain camp. If he is elected this is what we'll get.
Leave your company and become Vice President under a Republican administration. The Dick Cheney's stock options rose 3,281% last year Link
And why are the McCains so hesitant to disclose where his wife's money came from Link? I think we've had enough of Republican "entrepreneurship".
A POW from Vietnam who was tortured yet supports Bush (a chicken hawk) in his use of torture. Friend to Big Money and enemy to the common person. I wonder if Hillary will vote for McCain and look to expand the river of blood we have spilled in Iraq?
What will we get with McCain? More of the same.
Call me wrong but:
Uninformed? A scary notion for our president to be uniformed. Or bad judgement ... even worse.
With this blog the 100,000 point level has been broken, and even though the points do not covert to cash they do show how much work you can do. If I the dial up boy can top 100,000 point level in six months then I know everyone else can do it too, so the more all of you use this website the more our right to freedom of speech is exercised. Please contribute your efforts as much as possible here, and rock n’ roll this country back to a democracy that we can all be truly proud to say is the best.
