    *standing ovation*

    That's what I think too. Ok, I think more about it, but that's all I'm going to say, for now.
  2. Nikki Says:
    Talk about straight to the point.
  3. Jaimie Says:
    You know I only lasted about 5 minutes through that speech. I went from that to A&E, which is always more entertaining and informative than Bush.
  4. Wadena Says:
    Didn't watch. He's stupid, not entertaining. It will be a pleasure to see him impeached.

    Are you aware that your center column extends across your right-hand column and both become unreadable?

    I use the Firefox browser, maybe that's the problem.

    I should think you'd want to fix that, though, because a lot of people use Firefox.
  5. James Manning Says:
    i've never seen that wadena. I'll check it out.
  6. Peace Says:
    Ditto. I was watching A&E too.. and Animal Planet. So much more entertaining :)

    James, I use Firefox and don't see what Wadena is talking about. Maybe it is in her text settings.
  8. Wadena Says:
    It's just the top post, possibly due to that huge cartoon. I have only seen this on your blog....no others that I can think of.
  9. Wadena Says:
    I scrolled on down and it appears it IS related to your pictures and cartoons.

    It happened on "Soul Food" and also on the one a bit farther back that had a large cartoon.

    The text follows the pic or cartoon and goes just as far to the right as the pic did, thus overwriting the text in the right-hand column.
  10. James Manning Says:
    Ok, yes that does happen and it depends on the screen setting. for those using 600X800 they may have some problems. the pictures are generally 500px so that will skew the viewing. i'll look to see if i can do somethign about it. thanks for the heads up.

    Bush: blah blah blah 9/11 blah blah blah bringing democracy and liberty to the middle east blah blah blah reform social security blah blah blah meaningless education reform blah blah blah our brave men and women in uniform blah blah blah Osama Bin Laden blah blah blah tax cuts blah blah blah cutting programs that are not working (read all programs for the poor) blah blah blah God bless America blah blah blah.

    Oh yeah, and arrest Cindy Sheehan. She's wearing a t-shirt which actually bears the number of American dead from the War in Iraq. That's got to be illegal.

    Only question: Who's the dog and who's the pony?

    Also, this stolen from a comment on my blog:

    Black Congressman Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., was asked on public TV about President Bush.

    "Well, I really think that he shatters the myth of white supremacy once and for all."

    The economic stuff is all that I liked in the State of the Union, but of course the immense deficits almost make them moot, but at least we know that part of the deficit would go to a decent cause.

    Free trade is one of those things that hurts (badly) in the short run but is good in the long run. If we have to trade jobs going overseas for entire enterprises going under, I'll take the jobs overseas.

    The problem that most people make is viewing the US economy as a zero sum game. Competition from foreign workers causes American entrepeneurs to 1) find new markets to capitalize on and 2) become more competitive in existing markets.

    It won't be easy, but it's better than protectionist and isolationist policies that do nothing but delay the inevitable. We have an amazingly strong economy, but it's not strong enough to ignore the market forces of the entire planet.

    Not for too long anyway...

    i really thought it was good -- i think he raised many valid points.
  15. Tif Says:
    LOL. I much rather like the expression of the Bush's during mention of: war; Luoisiana; wiretapping, as they sat behind speakers at Coretta Scott King's funeral. Priceless.
