Tweedles Dumb and D

I agree with Governor Jindal that the Republicans have to stop being the stupid party; especially when it comes to social issues and policing the planet. But the Democrats have to stop being a stupid party, too. These whole notions that a) we can balance the budget simply by taxing rich people, b) we can save the planet solely by reinstituting a 16th century energy-diffuse power system, c) simply by throwing more and more money at an inefficient/corrupt public-school system the results will somehow improve, and d) more and more regulations are invariably the answer are hardly the types of ideas that you're liable to hear at a MENSA meeting, either. The bottom-line here is that BOTH parties (hey, they both supported ethanol, correct?) need to get their acts together, think outside the box, and enough is enough with the platitudes and simple solutions already.

I couldn't have said it any better myself! Keeping up with these political parties is like watching the NFL. The parties have become like football teams, sponsored by the names we all know about. In the end, they get nothing done anyway and their solutions are very watered down, vague and generic.

I got a new computer a few days ago and it's working beautifully. It's one of those HP Pavilion g6 models.

HP rocks. Now I'm jealous as my HP is 5 years old.

And yeah both parties are pretty much blind to their own shortcomings. Voting for the lesser of two evils" (or the 3'rd party candidate) will continue into the foreseeable future.

I was watching the gun hearings today and Senator Sessions talked for like ten minutes and asked one question. ONE! He basically just gave a speech. Yeah, I'm pretty much done with the two parties, too.
