I don't think it was about GW, Linda......oh, wait, a potential resident asking about taxes in the VI - that one took a hard left and morphed off into something different, it surely did!

Don't join the guard if you think you might not want to be activated.

I always loved Jimmy Carter and his 18 pct interest rates. That guy was a real winner. Might even be a bit responsible for what many of the problems in the Mid East.

But I digress so to keep on topic.....pay your income tax.

Lets see....I suppose I would prefer the days of Kobar Towers, USS Cole First World Trade Center Attack, TWO different U.S. Embassies in Africa attacked by scum bag terrorists, Pan Am, Achilles Lauro.....It was much better when the United States did absolutely nothing about it and they kept coming at us.....I kinda enjoyed the good old days.....it kinda stinks that they are so busy fighting us in Iraq that they can't get here......its just wrong......AND may I add that Iraq NEVER did anything to provoke us......well that is unless you look to those silly U.N. resolutions that were ignored (17 of them to be exact).... should I even mention those pesky Iraqi Mirage Jets that killed 37 U.S. Sailors on May 17, 1987 when they fired two exocet missiles through the port bridge-wing of that great ship USS Stark....Or the thousands of attempts to shoot down U.S. planes over the agreed to no fly zones.......Ah, the good old days!!!!
And topping my list is the attempted assassination of George H W Bush by Iraqi agents in Kuwait .......And Promo, we really need to celebrate Jimmy Carter and his economic policies, I too miss the high interest rates and let us never the misery index!!!!!! I feel better too!!! 🙂

Thank You Jay for putting it in writing. The facts are what they are with regard to who declared war on whom. It is also fact that the U.S. Military is a strictly volunteer Military. We don't get to pick and choose which battles our President determines are worthy, despite what congress is attempting to do.
So, in keeping in context of the original post, the divide our country is experiencing as a result of this war is "taxing" my brain.

Glad to see that there are others on here who do not suffer from BDS.

"We don't get to pick and choose which battles our President determines are worthy..."

Which of course begs the question in what way is he really "our" president when we don't have a vote.

"...despite what congress is attempting to do."

Most American citizens, through their elected representatives, can impeach and remove from office a president who abuses the power of the office by instigating a war to increase his personal wealth, but of course the representative of the Virgin Islands has no voting power in Congress.

Listen if it bothers you so much and you want to be an active part of the political process, get yourself out of territorial status and come home. If you don't have a home, find one on the mainland,

BUT STOP COMPLAINING since you have no impact. Of course, those with BDS love to complain for complaints sake.

Context means every thing so you should have written what I said, not what you thought I said.

Linda and dnt: You might be surprised to learn that there are still Americans who support their president.

I had hoped that this conversation would have died a natural death. However it's still here.

I would like to comment on two statements.

We are not complaining and will not be shouted down by Rush's mob. We will exercise free speech and try to make change happen.

Yes, I am surprised that anyone who cares about America's freedom and future supports the President.

I don't agree with the President's way of doing things, but it isn't so black and white as you all want to make it. Think a little bigger and a little broader. Yeah, we don't need to be in Iraq anymore, but if we had not gone to war years ago, we might not have any gasoline to drive. Can you imagine what terrorists could do if our means of transportation were taken out? They could have shut us off completely from the oil in the Middle East. Our reserve ain't that big and ain't that generous. Just one little point I wanted to make. It isn't just about Bush wanting to keep his family rich. I hope you can understand what I am saying, because I am not a Bush groupie or anything. I just am smart enough to know that there is more to it than what politicians and the news wants us to think. Thinking is something many Americans lack. Doing is another thing Americans lack. Bitching and moaning about something we have no plans to do anything about is more common than salt in the ocean. Just my two cents.

Teresa
