This has been pointed out, I am sure, many, many times.

I am not scared of Bush and Bush alone. Rather, he is the most public character in a gallery of horror, in my opinion. He almost...sums up the scary things contained in his squadron of attack dogs. Some of them have one trait, more so than others, and he seems to be, aptly, the man who covers it all, to some extent or another.

Anybody else noticed this/think so/want to tear off my head metaphorically and tell me why I'm wrong?

No, you don't have it wrong. Bush cut all kinds of business taxes and property taxes in Texas, then ran on that for President in 2000. The next budget year, cuts were made in school funding, children's health care, mental health funding, arts and virtually every other state funded program. The result was that property taxes were then raised again for the next 5 years, until this year - when Rick Perry cut property taxes and raised business taxes and instituted new taxes on alcohol and cigarettes.


that's what i thought - his big tax deal pretty much led to the collapse of the state, right after he moved into the white house. which was way i could never get why congress was so determined to vote in tax cuts, given that bush had just demonstrated what a horrible mess such a thing would
make.

guess they had to see deficits nationwide before they would believe they were real. Rolling Eyes

I seem to remember a large tax refund (money owed to the american people as they put it at the time), that inexplicably turned into a no interest loan, rather than a refund. WTF?!

well that was right around the time I went into glasses, as I recall. I probably couldn't see the fine print.

I can't really have a go at Bush. I'm English, so it's not much to do with me, however the way the countries interact makes it something to do with me.

Firstly, I don't think George W is a bad guy. In fact he seems pretty funny, and fairly good, if a little...ermm...dumb.

But I think it's more creepy what goes on behind him. It does look like his dad, and most other companies and people, are manipulating him. I think the biggest problem is the oil industry.

When you've got the guy in charge for enviromental affairs, a few years ago, telling people that global warming doesn't exsist, something is up there. And when you look how many of his cabinet are ex oil company employees, and still have links to the industry, you can see what it is. I mean an oil company was going to call one of their barges the Condaleza Rice. There's a clear conflict of interest there.

But maybe it's one thats working. I just worked out how much petrol prices are here in US Gallons. It works out as 6.715733 U.S. dollars per gallon.

even though i don't believe in The Big Guy Upstairs, i refuse to believe that The Big Guy Upstairs is _really_ telling him to do the things he does.

....you _did_ realize that he's said right out that that's the only father he listens to, right?

He has more than one!?!?!

My dad was saying how the oil companies are only driven by the market and if hydrogen and other alternative fuels were that amazing (cheap, safe, etc) than they would have been out by now. Bush would have no reason to interfer with the market. ::sighs::

If I was to sum up Bush's presidency up until this point, it would be...

"He defied logic"

... in just about every policy decision I've paid attention to. Very Happy
