What the hell is wrong with us?
Why can we not control our ports?
Did we forget how to do that?

The Dubai Company owns many ports around the world.
Think of the power in that. Do you know who usually controls the ports?
The Mob. Not the in your face type of control, but the secretive money laundering kind. Anyway, why do we not buy our own ports back and keep them in our control?

Why does Bush contradicts his beliefs by saying lets go to war, but then he says let\'s sell our ports to these terrorist harborers? 2008 comes soon a new president, maybe one that cares about our freedoms and right to privacy as well as kicking some terrorist butt.

Most congressmen except bribes it\'s just not reported until a career is needed to be ruined by someone’s opponent. Or maybe a congressman actually showed that he cared about the American people. Then uh oh a leak comes out about you accepting money when Joe blow over there and a couple of Joe whoas did the same thing but they are still in good graces with the rest of the congressmen.

Another thing that bothers me is why does our government cut programs that are needed? They cut Medicare, financial aid and close programs that are needed by the public. Are they broke? No of course not. Ok the U.S population based on a 2004 figure is 293,655,404; ok so lets say that only 100,000,000 of them work and pay taxes, let\'s theorize that they all pay a minimum of $43 a month in federal tax times 12 months. $43.00x12=$516.00 then $516.x100,000,000=$516,000,000. So even at that min. amount they still get alot of money. and we all know that we pay much more then that.

We should increase the (EIC)Earned Income Credit to the working poor and give them an option to deposit a portion of their money into an account. Also make them deposit money yearly into an account set up for their children that the children nor the parents can touch until they are 18. The parents should never have access to the money unless the child dies then it will cover funeral expenses and the rest will be deposited into the accounts of any remaining children. When the child turns 18 he/she must provide proof of smart choices on how to spend their money and provide reciepts. Like they must use it to better themselves (college or university), invest, or for living expenses. Any remaining money that they have not used can be saved for their children and deposited into their long term savings account.

What do you think about my rant and ideas?
