um... bush doesnt seem to understand that eventually we need to pay back all this debt. that seems to be whats up. i dont know where bush thinks money comes from, but he seems to think that war costs are like college loans and that his dad will pay them off within the next couple years. thats the only way i can explain this...

I saw it, and I completely agree. Me and a friend were watching it from about half-way in (we tuned in a minute or two before he mentioned the big numbers) and we couldn't help but continuously comment on what a dumbass he was. Then when they threw the numbers back up on screen when he finished, we got to really gape at his idiocy.

My friend (and Keanu Reeves) said it best: "Whoa."

my favorite bush line ever came right before the iraq war started..

"and iraqi people, do NOT burn oil wells, that will be your economy in the future. i repeat do NOT burn the oil wells. this is vital for YOUR economy"

Yo, when is the movement to stop corporate politics and war going to happen? I'm serious, things have to change.
As terrible as 9/11 was, it was more of a wake up call than anything.
.....but I guess we're getting all the terrorists with the war in Iraq.......yeah.

i think reason hit on a good point. as easy as it is to blame bush for iraq solely, hes really just playin by the rules to get re elected.


if he invades north korea or iran because there would be too many casualities and it would probably be seen as another vietnam, lowering his chances of getting re elected.

if he invades saudi arabia gas goes up to 20 bucks a gallon and theres no way he gets re elected

if he does nothing people notice hes fucked up the economy and he doesnt get re elected

he makes up a war against iraq and takes his chances.


unfortunately thats politics these days, do what you have to do to get re elected regardles of the ethical consequences...

Unfortunately, that is how politics are working these days.

But does anyone think that a movement to reform American government is actually possible?
I think that it could be, but this apathy bred by society seems to be quite a hurdle to get over, it would have to start with hip hop, but the kicker would be mainstream rap.
Those mothafuckers have so much influence on American teen culture that they could really do something.
Any thoughts?

But i think that mainstream rap (in general) is very conservative. Don't think they will be pushing for an overhaul of the system when they are thriving under the current system. This is obviously a generalization. What Russell Simmons has been doing is interesting, but i don't know how much good it will do.
