    For the record, this email was not intended for the message board. George sent it out to a list of friends to let them know he was ok after the accident. I left it in its entirety. Berz is pretty passionate about politics as well. When I first met him it was right before the election. We talked around 3 hours, 80% of which were politics.

    Why would the political insite of any U.S. citizen be less due to a public profession? When it becomes so, we will be bordering on communism.

    Just thought that was a strange/pointed type of comment.
    Sort of like it would justify:
    "I could have done without the political "insight" of a <insert>."

    <STRONG>Glad we agree, I have used that if we all agreed line the world would be a boring place many times it makes perfect sense to me. I can see that this topic definitely means a lot to you, and the fact that you are well read on the matter is obvious to all no doubt. I try hard not to make any assumptions about anyones intelligence with the limited info shared thru posts to this bbs. We are a community of all kinds…varied ages, locations, spaces and occupations. .. some fully cooked and ready to go others still in the formative stages, which is one of the cool things about freakscene. So opinions shared are cool, no matter how developed or underdeveloped they are at least its a start.

    Ummmmm…..attributing the economic good standing of the US for the last 20 years (not just eight, as many want you to believe) to the Clinton administration is a complete riot. Ya think it may have had something to do with the technological revolution?? Or maybe…just maybe, the last ten years or so may have given us a "false economy" of sorts. Credit can be a very bad thing.

    It cracks me up that people will bash the Reagan/Bush years as "mismanagement" while turning a blind eye to the fierce corruption which will likely put the US in great danger (China has many "rogue nation" friends in the world, ya know). Can anybody point to even a shred of competent energy policy during the Clinton administration?? I suppose folks on the left will be pointing to the huge deficit during the ’80’s…..blaming it on Reagen b/c, everybody knows, he constructed the budgets, correct?? And putting an end to the Cold War….hell, that pales in comparison to enacting "don’t ask, don’t tell" policies.

    Hager……I do understand your plight. I get my friends all worked up about personal freedom, liberty and responsibility as well as pointing out how we are SEVERELY over-taxed, much of that money spent on pork-barrel projects used as leverage to get representitives elected. They agree with every word. They get mad. They get upset. Then they vote for Gore or Nader b/c "conservatives are mean." I’ve got a feeling i’m less Libertarian and more of a Conservative than you…..but I understand your point well, none the less. I’m sure you know by now that when discussing politics with a leftist, if you don’t agree with them, it’s "obviously" b/c you don’t TRULY understand, don’t follow the issues or are just plain dumb (ya know, like Harvard Business Grad GeeDub). Eh. What the hell are ya gonna do??

    I’m gonna go listen to go listen to some Astrud Gilberto and have my morning cup of kitten’s blood.

    Jeez! The last thing that I was thinking about when I wrote that thing was creating a political discourse. I do believe that everyone has a right to spout their opinion. I certainly find the vast majority of politicians inthis country to be utterly repugnant. This certainly includes Clinton/Gore as well as George W. It’s just that I find the Christian Right agenda, which holds a disproportionate sway in the Republican Party, to be more scary than the Democrats pablum. I mean you’re getting fucked either way.
    I also think that this country gets the politicians it deserves. I can’t believe how many of MY friends don’t vote. I think that it’s every citizens duty to be well informed, and vote in EVERY election, both local and national. I’m sick of listening to people bitching about Giuliani, and then telling me that they didn’t vote. I bitch about him, but I voted against the prick TWICE!
    Lastly, I would like to put my feelings at the time in context. We had just been in an accident, and we received top-notch care without sweating the bill. In our great land, that first day alone would have been about $20,000. I just think that it’s great that this is available to EVERY citizen of Sweden. I do not have health insurance. I make a middle class income, yet I have to be very careful about seeking medical services. I think that’s wrong. I feel that everyone should have unfettered access to quality healthcare and education. Then let the capitalist chips fall where thay may.

    <STRONG>Well, I’m glad everyone is okay, but I could have done without the political "insight" of a professional musician. George W is basically a power mongering big-government-aholic, as has every Democrat and Republican since anyone can remember. There is nothing wrong with greed and selfishness…serving your own self-interest is healthy, and it assures that no one else has to carry your ass and do it for you. All the stupid liberal voodoo about being altruistic and self-sacrificing is the cause of all the evil institutional (and forced) redistribution of wealth taking place in America. I have to look out for you because you are looking out for your neighbor who is busy looking out for his neighbor…it never ends, all at the point of a gun. The government is enslaving us to eachother. Things cost too much in America not because of the greed of businessmen, but because of the overregulation by the government. It’s an indisputable fact. Yeah, I hate George W, too…but no more that I hated Clinton, Gore or any of the other evil big-government fucks. Wake up people. Read some Ayn Rand and stop swallowing all this bullshit brotherly-love propaganda. Everyone agrees with me when I start talking about personal freedom and the freedom to do what you choose if you don’t hurt anyone else…and then all the people around me who seem to agree go and vote for the big-governent, prohibition-happy, freedom-stomping Democraps. Talk about being blind…they are as much the "establishment" as any Republican ever was.</STRONG><HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    You mean people in the U.S. dont have health insurrance??? That’s unbelieveble!! In our country (Netherlands) the most important task for the government is to protect its people and provide education, a place to live and health insurance for them, like providing enough hospitals and stuff. I had no idea this is still different in other countries like the U.S.
    This shocks me…

    at least George W hasn’t sold the US to China.
    Oh, but I forgot, the Chinese love extremely loud American rock and roll. You guys think playing any kind of music can come without freedom? You think freedom is free?

    suckers……..

    I believe the republican operative *cough* excuse me, the poster is trying to claim Clinto sold the US to the Chinese by taking campaign contributions in 1996. As though Clinton wouldn’t have thumped Dole without the money. [img]images/smiles/converted/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    Speaking of bad drivers, I actually yelled, "What are you doing, Jerkwater!?!" the other day at a guy.
