What tax cuts are those?


Uh, that would be the tax cuts that all the Democrats say need to be repealed.
Those would be the tax cuts that every tax paying American received and will receive in the future.  What's the matter Fluffy?  Surely you are a tax paying American...didn't you get your tax cut check in the mail?

You thinks wrong.  I drive everywhere.  I fill up my truck about every other day and it costs about $35.00.  And excuse me but,  I am not complaining.
I just don't see the big whoop-de-doo about the price of oil in Iraq.  Give the Iraqis a break.  You want everyone to pay $6.00 a gallon because you do?

As for socialist government... wha?


Come on dude.  Don't play that game with me.  You mean Britain is Captalist and not Socialist?  You mean that your taxes are so damn high because you don't have to pay for health care for everyone and everything else under the sun?

oh?

You know what...

Where I live in the States there aren't enough jobs

I know friends who finihed collage and the only job they can find is to flip burgers *AND THEY HAVE DOCTORATES*

I have no problem paying for things Bath... I just have a problem with all the inflation.  It's almost as bad as in the 30's when families had to take a whole wagon load of money to the store and all tehy could buy was a loaf of bread.

And does the Pres do anything about it?

Yeah.. He sends our men and women of the armed forces to go fight and die so that he can milk more money out of us and stay in office.

Or am the only one who thinks that?

Then again Where I live, I can't breathe outside because it's too humid for me in the sunlight.  So I have to drive.  And the only thing to really do is go to one of the bigger towns because nothing to do here.

*Wonders who's bloody idea it was to shut everything down at 6 pm around here....*

Oh....

You mean the whole 300 dollars extra that some families got that made it possible for them to at least have a home for another month.  (Seriously, this happened to one of my friends families)  

She found out from snail mail that her parents were selling off their things so that they could afford to live.  Both were well up there in age, and taking medications..

THe Tax cut was a joke okay.

A verry bad one

When you said you have a truck, did you mean a Tonka toy? You have all the political awareness of a 7 year old!

America has a welfair program too you know.... OK it sucks, but its there. Does that make America a socialist country according to you?

One policy does not a political outlook make.

Yes the NHS was brought in by a socialist government...... we had a shedload of nationalised industrys back then too. There hasn't been a socialist government here since before Thatcher, she took politics in this country FAR to the right of where it was and the Labour party went with it.... NEW Labour is about as socialist as smallpox.... IE not at all and as well as Blair being a glove puppet for Bush, he is also the true son of Thatcher.

Perhaps the current Government isn't socialist but your gas prices are the result of Socialism.   You are reaping the Socialist reward...equal misery for everyone! tongue.gif

You need to wear thinner trousers, those are muffling your voice... or you could simply stop talking out your fundamental orafice!

You can't blame one aspect of policy for that. Over its entire history the NHS has only cost a fraction of what the American space program cost. Plus if the NHS got the level of funding that the government reaps in from fuel duty then even with the mismanagement its been subject to it would still be the best in the world by a significant margin. (Which it isn't.... a combination of mismanagement and systemic underfunding saw to that)

Why don`t we just stop using oil and drive around in solar panel cars at a whopping 30km/h  thumbsup.gif

sorry just had to say it. tongue.gif


Down in australia its over  $1.05 per litre.

I do believe we will eventually recover who knows this may open peoples eyes to our dependence on oil and how we need a better energy source because it is starting to run out. thumbsup.gif

Well said,  thumbsup.gif we should look into eletric or solar energy cars. But will never happen as long as the oil barons have influence on western governments.  sad.gif

And while we're at it can be rebuild the rain forests before we run out of oxygen.

When someone creates a car with solar panels that can actually perform at speeds of up to 120 mph and perhaps we all will. wink2.gif

We are not starting to run out of oil!  Not even!  Scarcity of oil is not the reasons for the increased gas prices.  Oil is not scarce.

I don't know about the UK but in the states we already have many different models of hybrids....they don't perform as well as the rest but it is a technology that is gaining rapid acceptance.

That being said...it is all about performance...On America's highways, every other vehicle is an 18 wheeler carrying tons of things that people will go buy.  Jets won't run on electricity.  Ships aren't powered by electricity either  (unless you want to count the nuclear powered ones).  Oil is what it is:  a necessity that will be with us through out our life times and our childrens lifetimes and our children's, childrens lifetimes.

If you are truly concerned about Oxygen depletion you should consider cutting down all of the jungles and making them golf courses, because it is  a fact that grass lands produce more oxygen than forests! thumbsup.gif

Oh, we have electric and solar cars also, what I mean is they will never become mainstream because it would cost the oil industry so much, and the oil barons have massive economic influence on government. sad.gif
