    Why didnt Manny go to DC

    Why has Bush not put as much money into finding sustainable forms of energy that will not force us to be pressured by countries that have a stronghold on oil, as he has into a war that has done nothing to improve either our country or the country we are fighting? REALLY?... UMM he and others wanted to opne ANWAR becomeing more self sufficient.� HE tried to get more SOLAR stuff (WHICH we actually have a lot of companies workingon) OH AND HE TRIED TO GET AMERICANS TO ACCEPT NUCLEAR PLANTS.... which would remove our reliance on oil for electricity meaning more oil for cars......� AGAIN, you must givehim credit when he deserves it.. SOLAR/WIND?ANWAR AND NUCLEAR have been in his last several addresses to the public.� WHY didn't YOU demand nuclear power?.... It can supply the greatest amt of energy with the least cost to the environment (in the form of ELECT). AMERICANS want an easy answer..... we have become a society of SLOTHS! Doesn't the fact that he has put the power back into the hands of the companies that are destroying our environment make him to some degree at fault with what is happening to our environment? Well if you buy the story that CLINTON did anything to protect the environment then YEP it would mean that.� However as I posted elsewhere this country doing major environmental stuff by ourselves (without China Korea et al) would bankrupt this country.� HOWEVER many forget to look at that... but will in the same breath gripe about the economy!� GLOBAL WARMING is a HOAX- being perpetrated on us by whomever just like the OIL COMPANY hoaxes of the 40's-60's which made us relaint on them.� 400+ WOrld renowned scientists say Global Warming is a HOAX.. AL GORE says it is the end of existence.. we give him a NOBEL PEACE prze and ignore them.� Allthe while he flies his personal plane and uses 1200/month in ELECTRICITY.... He creates a bigger Carbon FOOTPRINT than my entire family - and I am supposed to believe his gloom and doom forcast which is reputed by some scientists?.�� NAW!!!!� We need to do something with the environment... I AGREE... but I DO NOT BELIEVE THE STORY!!!!!� and the latest info shows Global cooling for two years.... HMMMM? I "Fear" GLobal warming is the next hoax of "WE DON:T WANT NUCLAR POWER.... it is dangerous.... but the US NAVY had 80 ships using it daily with nary an�incident and 18 year olds running the reactors..... HMMMMM? �

    wwsf4ever,Your not going to believe this, but I am actually going to give you a compliment. I agree with everything you posted in your political diatribe. The leftist communists (Clinton, Obama, Kennedy, Pelosi, Reed and other Democrats) in this country for some reason want us to be a weak nation. The turtle up like a wimpy kid with the school bully talking to them and yet they want everyone in this country to be like them. Why????? What this country needs right now is to be strong and unified in this fight against terrorism, but we are not. Don't people realize that we are in the fight of our lives right now and that extreme Islamic beliefs want the destruction of the U.S., Israel, and the West and will not stop until they are dancing in our American blood while we are lying dead at their feet. Sure Bush hasn't been the greatest president, but I do think that over time it will show that what he has done in his stance against terrorism will have been the right call and might have saved thousands, if not, millions of American lives right now because terrorist attacks may have been prevelent in the United States without the course of action he decided to take after 9-11. Sure, Bush has taken some lumps that he has rightfully deserved (Hurricane Katrina, Mission Accomplished and his non-action to secure the boarders and deal with illegal immigration), but not everything is Bush's fault. The terrorists have been at war with America and the West for 30 - 40 years now and America only woke up during 9-11. Bin Laden was offered up the U.S. on a silver platter by Egypt but Clinton refused allowing Bin Laden and the terrorist to fester and plan. In addition, the enviroment has been changing a bit more�since the Industrial Revolution began but nothing like the left in this country want you to believe. Truth is, the world is constantly changing. Just look at world maps from different periods on the earth and you may have a hard time even realizing that at one time Kansas was the West coast of North America. Also, Bush's tax cut have actually stimulated the economy and because of those tax cuts America and Wall Street have boomed with great prosperity in many sectors of the ecomony. Unfortunately though for America, we had a policy put in by Clinton where people could buy homes with SubPrime home loans and many of them didn't read the fine print of the contract. Now we are stuck with the bad decisions of some banks and people who bought something that in reality they could never afford and that will bring down the economy into a reccession. Shame on the banks and the people signing these contracts for leading us into this mess. As usual, it looks like the responsible American tax payer will have to bail us out of another problem.�Let us all�hope that Clinton or Obama will not get into the seat of the President and allow the leftist communists of America to take over and slam there liberal policies of surrender and �cut and run in Iraq, high taxes, bigger government, allowing illegals to flow endlessly into�the country while catering to the extreme Islamic terrorists who want Americans to die to be the norm. To me, that will truly be the death of America.

    Obviously we are both biased. You have indicated that you work for a huge multinational corporation, thus you are going to�be biased toward�industry. I have a background in environmental education and have spent ten years of my life as a teacher. I know I will never be wealthy, while I would assume you have the potential to do so (possibly at the cost of the environment). This statement is as judgemental as your statements are toward me. I am a Christian and my father and grandfather are veterans, so try not to make assumptions about who I am. We all can believe what we want to believe. Yes there certainly are scientists that believe that Global Warming does not exist, but in the global scientific community they are the minority. Of course your scientists know more than the majority of the world's scientists. Do you also believe that pollution caused by industry around the world is a myth? Let me guess, you think that�increases in illnesses to humans and animals living around bodies of water that have been heavily polluted by industry has nothing to do with pollution. We can both make intelligent arguements for our case, but we can't prove 100% that we have the right answer. I do appreciate the men and women that dedicate themselves to making us safe, whether they be in the military, police, fire department, National guard, etc. They fight for us to have the freedom to disagree. Just because I disagree with your views on Bush, war, etc.�does not mean that I am the one�who is wrong or that I don't respect you as a person. It just makes us different, which is what makes our country great. We have every right to have different views. This is the end of my political rant. This is a sports board and I will not revisit politics. You are a welcome to have the final word and I won't argue against it.Go Sox.

    Hey WWSF,
    Things are going well up here.� We just got hit with a storm that dumped about 5 inches of slush on us.� Snow I can deal with....slush....not so much.� I HEAR what you mean about SLUSH>> YUCK! I do still love the snow though, I will admit.

    I had to throw in my little little "so how bout' dem Sox" comment to lighted the mood a bit.....I meant no offense....you know where I stand.� Keep fighting the good fight my good man!!SORRY I get to adamant about certain things.. but RIGHT IS RIGHT.. and LEFT IS WRONG... Heheheheheh�� J/K WACKO's!� NO OFfense taken.� NONE AT ALL! How you been?� Still in the Chi-town area??� How are you feeling?� Last I heard from you it sounded like you finally "rounded the corner".� We are down near the LAFAYETTE, IN area. 200 miles from CHI-TOWN or so.� Well that "Problem" I had is under control.� I sure an glad I got that PArting gift from my service time.� I think I am around the corner, but I lost that job I had, and had to find a new one... don;t pay as well, but it is a living wage.� LOL�� I'm gonna turn in in a bit.� If you don't hear back, I'm not ignoring you.� I'll respond in the morning.SLEEP TIGHT FRIEND!� Remember their is a soldier a sailor an airman and amarine allowing you to dream safely tonight!�� Think of them before your sleep!

Now if Manny makes a political statement out of it....then it is an issue. However, the season hasn't begun yet and I am sure that Manny won't disappoint me as far as things to talk about when he acts like a fool, plays bad defense, runs himself into outs due to bad baserunning,� and his always dependable MBM's. In short, I am sure you and I will have our battles again over him as the season goes on.� Get your rest.......you will need it.

I have a background in environmental education and have spent ten years of my life as a teacher. I know I will never be wealthy, while I would assume you have the potential to do so (possibly at the cost of the environment). OKAY.... Now thatwas kind of foolish for you to say.. but here let me help you out... I DID A 22 YR CAREER for the US NAVY..

SO WELL keep ASSUMING! As far as becomeing wealthy that would depend on what you think is wealthy?

YOU ARE "HATE AMERICA FIRST" and I AM LOVE AMERICA FIRST!

THAT IS WRONG!� ALSO you appreciate the men who protect you (like you would a German Shepard) but alas... you do not respect the fact that they are where they are when they are to insure your freedom.. NOW that is a typical left wing thing.� YOU MUST PROTECT ME.. when I say and where I say or I will spit in your face. This is the end of my political rant. This is a sports board and I will not revisit politics. You are a welcome to have the final word and I won't argue against it.YEAH LETS STAY ON SPORTS BETWEEN THE TWO OF US...� I AGREE.. glad to have you working on the environment, but to protect the environment at the cost of human lives and food is ignorant..
