I love this greasemonkey script. It fixes any curse words that have been censored, and returns them to their normal form. It also has an added entry that, anytime it sees George W Bush, changes it to George W Douchbag, and "the Bush Administration" becomes "The Douchbag Administration." it makes reading articles like this, and the front page of CNN much more entertaining. Even the title of this thread now makes me giggle!

Just thought I would share. Carry on.

I agree,, not just in leadership. He is also the worst because he is the most misleading president that I have ever seen,,

if I was a hostel country I would not trust him at all. If the US wants peace with the world it will never happen with Bush.

I see The Daily Show and im thinking when bush is gonne how will they manage to get something that tops him

I believe the one good thing he did was tax cuts before his re-election
I would never wish bad things but I dont wish you well !

LOL!! Okay, douchebag is now an accepted word here, just for you!! See, unlike GWB, I am flexible and will fix the internets for ya! :wink: :lol:

True, in order to get re-elected! But it was a good thing nonetheless... but less tax revenue to pay for the billions ( eventually trillions ) the war in Iraq will cost the US...hmmm...mebbe not so good in the long run for the country, but given current state of things, it is a good thing for the working people of the US to have lower taxes.

I thought his tax cuts really only affected the wealthy?

Probably, but at least some citizens of the US are getting a break on taxes, which is very unusual in this day and age. Greasemonkey script rulez! :lol:

The tax-cut on the re-election was to the mid-income family,,if I remember correctly

I think Clinton was the one president who gave a dum about the economy and imposed new tax needed and also the one who achieved a surplus since a decade I might be mistaken 8)

I saw the movie of the Dixie Chicks (SHUT UP & SING) how they were crucified for saying ( We are ashame the president of the US is from Texas ) how stations stopped airing their songs ,,Nice movie

The most stupid thing in the movie or in their actions was they made a picture of them Naked and Traitors to boost PR really dont know how that will help.

If the US economy wasn't so strong and driven by the Industry instead of the government the US would be Bankrupt

...GWB is at his second tour of duty... I'm thinking about one thing - while the US is losing tons of money in Iraq, China invests in developing it's infrastructure... nobody in the US scared by this? In 10-15 years, at this rate, the US will be only a military superpower and only due to WMDs, and not an economical one... I think...

I find it funny that when George W. Bush was running for his chance at the white house a friend asked what I thought of him...... at the time my only opinion was "he's not prepared and he's not a statesman" I didn't like Gore so it was a toss up.

then 9/11 and everyone considers Bush a Hero..... wow Bush is incredible and I'm asking a friend "why does everyone think he's accomplished something..... tragedy aside he's been handed more goodwill than anyone could possibly manage?"

so he proceeds to * it all up and piss every iota of greatness and opportunity the U.S. had been given and here we are today....... with a loser who's greatest claim to fame is his obstinate embrace of stupidity and village logic to which he appears to believe is a good thing.

I'm not sure Bush is the worst I haven't studied U.S. history but I do believe without a doubt he's a terrible president who's devolved the U.S. social landscape by 50 years along with being responsible for the rebirth of the cold war.

Most people here think war is good for economy ,It may be because durring WW1 and 2 Europe paid in gold for supply.There is nothing that would indicate bombings ,rotten bodies ,hunger and despair caused on "enemy"by military.So far no aparent signs of stress and if any centralized and unified information controll take care of what is being said on mainsteam media ,along with ridiculus approach towards independent outlets
See , average people owning homes and new cars don't buy info from internet ,they read newspapers , listen to radio and watch TV .
let me give small example
in my work there are constant discussions about:
How Iraqis are unnapreciative about schools and hospitals we are building there

Everyone thinks we should stop giving loans to foreign bastards

Afganis are ugly SOB's who hate freedom/yep ugliest on earth man/

Democrats in power means another depression

Yankees won over Red Socks

Definitively not good, that makes a country very susceptible to masked dictatorship, because the democratic process always works based on the info available.
I remember a thing I heard once or twice in 1989, the year when communism fell in Romania, something that Lenin said: "If you are not with us, then you are against us."
Scary, and once ideas like that can be thrown around and are accepted, anything can be justified and the voters will support it with cheers...
Aside from a few things, looking from outside, the US seems something like the Soviets... with better marketing...

More like asleep at the switch. Yes, the amount of foreign ownership in both USA and Canada is kinda frightening for sure. Not to mention the constant erosion of the manufacturing base.

Graf is right , WWI and II was paid by gold, selling bonds, and borrowing a little ( not all of it like Iraq war ). The huge debt is going to crush the USA in the future, and devalue their currency.. the Canadian Dollar just shot up to what, 96 cents USD value today did it not?? :roll:

What really worries me is that even a short period of severe economical crysis in US would send huge shock wawes into the whole world economy. Another Great Depression is a frightening perspective...

I believe it's not far off, you can see the signs of cracks already well on their way, Florida's housing market is in a shambles as is the rest of the states, the job's market reports now include temp jobs because the outlook is terrible in regards to full time jobs, gas prices will certainly slow the economy in every market........the U.S. population is aging and that money isn't available so here we have a huge voter base that's motivated to make certain their pensions are paid even though lax U.S. protections made it easy for companies to walk away from providing what they offered.

Japan is a huge buyer of U.S. bonds via forwarding which has artificially kept the U.S. bond market high all the while George has been throwing it away as fast as possible on his stupid little war and the Japanese are getting older with a stable pension system that will need the money back sooner than later....... so which way will the bonds go and who will want them once they aren't worth the paper they are on......?

his stupid little war is pushing debt and debt servicing towards a critical mass all the while corruption and entitlement strangleholds the government.

one need only look at the looming energy crisis to see yet another problem all the while the rich invest in China taking even more money out of the U.S.... I'm not sure the U.S. can buy its way into China's bed but they'll certainly take the money.

we are about to see the end of the dominance of the English speaking ppl's let's hope we survive it without giving to much away.

I think the military can only be super with super spending hence super power so if economy falls US military falls. Also the US is largest country in the world that spends on military above 300 Billion more then the budgets of 90% of countries.

The war would go alot better if they changed the government of Iraq 2 Years and instead of improvements they lose ground 4 times a rocket fell on them during the news.

Though US economy is suffering. It wont loose its maybe a lil set back but China still has along way to go to catch up to the US.

The most sad thing if the US withdraws from Afghanistan and Iraq,,both governments wont last long. Specially Afghanistan a year top.

in the next election the focus should be on the economy instead of war on other countries.

By the way gas prices are high because the Oil industry in the US wont invest in Oil Processing Plants. and 50% of the US processing Plants are in Katerna hit province.

see at my current work i think it is a doomed place to be because if we were to be audited the laundry list of broken regulations would be through the roof. But even with the insecurity what i love about the job is that you never ever have a boring day at work given the chaos the place is in every day. My new manager's words to me after being there for a month is: Every Friday I leave the place thinking I have gone two steps forward, only come back on Monday to find out that she is now four steps back.

So com'n let's all cheer up and say that Bush is great when it comes to generating a stupidity bashing conversation with even a stranger. He is bringing many people together. Weird twist eh? :twisted:
