Papal Visit

It's so nice of the Pope to visit the United States during the election year. What surprise me is none of the candidate has taken the opportunity to have a tete a tete with his holiness. Se. Mc Cain has been with the Pope but outside USA.Maybe none of them are eager to see the Pope.Maybe they think the audience with the Pope will alienate the Muslim,Jews and other non Catholic voters.There is one funny moment in this Papal visit.It happened when the Pope completed his speech . President Bush stood up,shook the Popes hands and said ' Awesome speech ' to the Pope.
What is wrong with Bush ? He could have chosen a more dignified and statemanlike compliment,dude !


Tax Break For The Likes Of Exxon.

There is a recession now. No doubt about it despite Dubya's denial.Every Tom,Dick and Harry are feeling the pinch except maybe the oil people.How dare the oil company executives asked for a tax break for their firms despite the billions of dollars in profit ! Why did the government provided these ultra profitable companies this break. Give the break to the ordinary people and small companies.How screwed our priorities are.Only in America !
