First off, I would like to qualify my proceeding statements. I do not like Bush. I voted for him but if I could take back my vote, I would in a heart beat. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t of voted for Kerry either.
With that said, I like how everyone implies like Bush single handedly passes every bit of legislation through his office. People, there are 3 branches of goverment: legislative, executive, and judicial. Guess who passes these laws through? Senate and House of Reprensentatives aka legislative branch which the Democrats now control both. The idiots in your state vote on this garbage and then the president oks it. If he vetos it, the Senate can overturn his veto with a 2/3 majority or 66%. You know, I saw something scary the other day. I was watching kids Jeopardy and the answer came up, “This amendment has Freedom of Speech in it.” You know who answered the question? No one, zilch. Can you say I heard the crickets chirping, yes.
I would agree with you on the current generation of kids have several education issues. Most can’t even tell you where Canada is. I went back to college a few years back and I thought that I would get wasted in English class by these kids coming straight out of High School. Well, it turned out to be, that most couldn’t even spell or write a proper sentence. Needless to say, I got a straight A while the others were struggling with a C.
Now what I don’t agree with is when you say we don’t make anything here anymore. That is somewhat true with some industries. However, usually, the innovation is done in the US while applying or manufacturing that innovation is done in a country with cheaper labor and less restrictive labor laws.
On your foreign doctors working in hospitals, well here is the problem. Alot of hospitals are closing due to the influx of illegal immigrants. An illegal immigrant can go to any public, not private though, hospital and it is required by law to treat that person. Well, guess what, the illegal immigrant ends up not paying their bill and the taxpayer is left with the ticket. This is the fault of, rings bell twice, politicians again thank you very much. Also, another problem, foreigners come here to have their babies because the hospitals are the best around then leave and go back to their country of origin leaving the tax payer flipping the bill yet again. So, why do hospitals have foreign docters? Take a wild guess…
