I listen to some old farts at work describe how to take care of the problem in Iraq. Their plan revolves around just killing anyone who has even heard of Al'Zucari. They are clearly not happy with the way things are going, but they also seem to be pro bush/republicans. Its tough working on a military base and not being a republican. Most everyone seems to be republican, if only, because they fear for their jobs. I would be happy to trade world peace for unemployment.
That was the arguement last time around.. I got from Mike Polly... Don't vote Gore, he'll cancel NMD. As I said at the time, I would be happy to find another job if they cancelled the project. I still feel that it is a waste of money.
Part of defending america is defending america. I am all for strong environmental laws. What is the point of keeping americans alive if we are all going to be poisoned by the water and living in a polluted wasteland?
