I've gotta laugh when I hear people calling the Democrats 'socialists'.

As the conservative French president Sarkozy made clear recently, Obama's 'socialist' policies are fairly similar to European conservative policies.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Most Americans wouldn't know a socialist if one bit them in the face. It's almost entertaining when the Tea Party calls Obama a socialist because the socialists are as annoyed with him as they are with everyone else.

____ The Economic Bailout, We the people bailed out the very thieves that stole our money. Then the GOP claims we are on the verge of the greatest transfer of wealth on record, I'm Sorry it has already happened.

____ Congress is bought and paid for by Corporate interests.

____ Lets just say you have gone to town hall meetings, and found a Represenative that shares your views. Then they go off to Washington, they are there a month and some person comes into their office with a way to pay for running for reelection in Two years, how do you think they are going to vote, for ideals or the cash?

____ Now they come back to their home district, and explain that its complicated to vote Ideals in Washington.

____ Tsk, Tsk, Tsk, Seems all the candidates have the same platform this year, and it doesn't matter what side of what pond you seem to be on.

Clearly the answer is to eliminate, or at least reduce, regulation and oversight of these financial companies and let the free market adjust itself.
