The Bush family have been oil giants for years...and good friends, very good friends with a very powerful family in Saudi Arabia. This was a blatant attempt to bring in under the radar...if I didn't know this, I'd probably believe that Bush knew nothing about this sale. Also, I admire Lou Dabbs for bringing this out in the open...he's now being threatened by the Saudi Embassy telling him to "shut up" and those were their words.
Thank God for him bringing this out in the open. I don't know how true it is, but have been told the Bush family owns large amounts of stock in Channels 3, 6, and 10...and none of those channels were reporting this until it became big news...first reported by Lou Dabbs.
And oh, by the way, there were more terrorists involved in 9/11 who were from Saudi, then 2.
All this information, will come out, after the Bush administration is out of office. I say again, in all seriousness, our plight cannot be about the parties...we have to stop backing people who are corrupt simply because we voted for them and are afraid to say...man, I made a mistake. Both sides are corrupt, there is no doubt about it...but, it's up to us...to shake them up so that they become more concerned about us, then they do their pockets.
We can debate until the cows come home, but it's not going make American soil a better nation. We are becoming a weak nation...if you look back through history, when did every great nation fall...when they became immoral and corrupt. We're moving there fast...
Bush is also very good friends with the Mexican President. That is why nothing has been done about immigration. And as much as we should be concerned about other nations taking our ports, we should also start concerning ourselves with legal immigration.
The Bush family, are very influencial rich people.
This entire situaiton, I'm afraid, will cause severe ramifications, whether the Saudi's purchase goes through or not. Their embassy is already screaming "this is blatently prejidice on the part of America" Will they retaliate? I think they will. The Bush family has really gone and done it this time. They wine and dine a very powerful Saudi family.
Well, there are good Arabs and Bad Arabs...just like in any culture...and it's time we stop being so sensitive about this issue, and take care of this country. I'm not prejidice...but...if you want to come to America and live, it should be deemed a priviledge and no one should be here illegally.
We have opened a can of worms that I fear has and will continue to put us in danger of a complete take over of this country.
Challenge me now, call me rediculous...but I guarentee you, if we don't change things, these things will come to pass. We've got to get hard and say no...we've got to bring back manufacturing in this country.
There is a secret agencay called and forgive me if I get this wrong...who are in charge of screening any foreign nations who purchase property & businesses in America. They only turned down 1 country thus far...and there have been thousands both properties and businesses sold to other countries, including China.
I'm not here to bash parties or to argue views...I'm posting this, b/c I am realistically afraid.
We were discussing this issue yesterday at work...one gal walked in on the conversation...and said, after listening to us...geeze, you guys ought to talk about something more positive. She's young and doesn't understand...my point is...perhaps this is an uncomfortable subject, but it's reality, it's happening. People believe when they go to the polls and vote, they've done their job. We believe b/c we voted for a certain party, we've got to defend them when they do wrong...b/c if we don't, then we'd be admitting we were wrong...and human beings don't like to admit they are wrong. Point being...we've got to insist that our government stop being bought by lobyists and start doing their jobs.
I said it before, and I'll take it to my grave...Bush and his administration scare me...and when all is said and done, after the next election, all the books and information will start surfacing, and Bush will go down in history as the worst President of the United States.
I think, we should get ready for the next election by insisting, "we don't only want to hear, you have a plan, we want a full scope presentation of the plan (s) you have in mind, to staighten out this mess. It can no longer be about party, we've got to come together as citizens of the US and demand change. Otherwise, by the division of this country right now...I'm afraid we're eventually in for big troubles, nothing of the likes we've ever imagined or thought we'd see.
Personally, I'm going to write Lou Dabbs and thank him for being courageous in bringing this story to the publics attention, cuz if he hadn't, none of us would be talking about this right now and the sale most likely would have gone under the rador like so many others.
It is our duty to come together, and get involved, not defend them, but honestly figure out, what is right and wrong...stop being so liberal with the rights of others who come to this country illegally. You guys have no idea what is going on, unless you live in southern states, where they're coming across the border. This is going to be very dangerous for us, and for our pocket books, not to mention, it's an easy take over for future generations.
We've deteriorated as a nation...our agencies are a joke...we are out of money...we have farmed out the manufacturing of our products to other countries...our properties, our businesses, and I haven't even touched base on our banking systems.
We're in trouble, and I hope more then anything, we learn from this, and come together as a country, instead of being divided by left and right wings. Otherwise, they've got us right where they want us.
Take for instance that shooting incident with Cheney. It was an accident, and as much as I don't like the guy, but, I feel badly for him, b/c he shot his partner by accident. But, the episode was blown way out of porportion by those who hate the Bush administration. Yes, there are accidents like these, sadly, unfortunately they happen. But it was in my opinion, foolish of the American public to mock this incident...as I believe in my heart, Cheney was really scared, upset and sorry. Who wouldn't be? I think sometime, we laugh at things we should deem immorral and corrupt and other things are not laughing matters...myself included...it's perhaps the way we cope? I dunno? But this verbal war going on between the Right and Left wings...I think, they've got us right where they want us?
Maybe it's me, perhaps I'm full of it? Just seems more logical to me. Blame it on my upbringing...
Another point I'm going to stress...if Hillary runs for President, sit back and watch how many woman vote for her, simply b/c she's a woman. This is the non-intellectual concept I'm talking about. We don't ask questions...we vote and think we've done a good job???? Its up to us, to get together and demand they do a better job, right along with us...we pay their salaries...yanno?
And by the way, is anyone interested in really knowing what is going on down south in the after math of Katrina. It's an embarrasement to the U.S.
I know I should have taken some of this information into other subject forums...but I couldn't help it, or stop myself from venting.
This stuff really, really gets me down, and I apologize to anyone if I've offended anyone...I just cannot see the logic in defending a party when one party is as bad as the other????
We need more Parties...we really do.
