Better way to deal with Property Taxes

Lower Pa Sales tax below the States around Pennsylvania then set up outlet malls near every major highway along the north at where between 81 and 29 in Susqueahana county, rt 15 in Tioga county,rt 219 in Mckean county 82 in warren county and 90 in Erie county and rt 220 in Bradford county. This as an example and do this at every major entry road along the Pa Board with Ny, Ohio and Maryland and New Jersey that is at least 70 miles from the Delaware Boarder. So more or less north of rt 276 and West of the Susquehanna River in Se pa.

This would Bring People into Pennsylvania from New York, New Jersey, Maryland and Ohio to avoid the taxes on large items in their state that they can bring home with them in their car. This would greatly outstrip any gain that would be had by raising Pa's state tax. Raising Pa's state tax will simply cut consumption in the state and encourage people to go to other states to Buy and live.

We finally have Proof Bush is Deranged and a Danger to the troops

It is clear from this latest story that President Bush has completely become detached from reality. Based on this story Bush has deluded himself into thinking that most Americans still support staying in Iraq. When in reality most Americans are simply want to find the quickest exit from this insanity. Most Americans think there is no "WIN" in Iraq that the only question is how many more Americans will die because of this.

I believe that if the Democrats had come out and said we are voting for this Bill to give Bush funding for Iraq not because we believe it's the right thing to do but because we are afraid that he might leave the troops there to die if we don't. I think most Americans might have believed them. Bush is a danger to America now and a Danger to the troops. There is no way to remove him because the Republican elected offials are willing to allow this insanity to continue because either they are as deluded as he is, or care as little for the troops as I think.That the only thing they are to them is a campaign prop and nothing more and they are showing it by not standing up to George BUsh

Bush adm Flips off the troops

Bush in response to Congressional attempt to raise Soldiers pay and the Death Benefits is to call them excessive.

Military Pay: The Administration strongly opposes sections 601 and 606. The additional 0.5 percent increase above the President’s proposed 3.0 percent across-the-board pay increase is unnecessary. When combined with the overall military benefit package, the President’s proposal provides a good quality of life for servicemembers and their families. While we agree military pay must be kept competitive, the three percent raise, equal to the increase in the Employment Cost Index, will do that.

More or less Bush is opposing giving the avg soldier any extra 6 dollars a month.

Beyond this he refuses to increase death Benefits by 40 dollars a month and refuses to increase the total death benefits for troops killed in battle an extra 100k to 600k for life time benefits.

The Bush adm also told the Soldier that they shouldn't get the discount on drugs that most people get from their plans, at a regular Pharmacy.

Finally the Bush adm told the American public screw you by asking the cost controls be put on contractors. Asking that negotiation requirements be removed from the bill for military contracts. i.e. to stop companies like haliburton from screwing the tax payers again with over priced food and goods.

It's kinda funny Bush and the Republicans accuses the Democrats of not caring about the troops but the republicans and Bush only seem to care about the troops when they are being used for his insanity.

How Al Qaeda's number 2 is setting Us Policy

Iman Al-Zawari seems to now be setting US policy in Iraq now. Yes I'm saying Al-Qaeda's number two is setting us policy. No, I'm not asserting collusion between the Bush adm and Al-Qaeda. I'm saying that Al-Zawari seems to have figured out how to get the Bush adm, to do exactly what he wants. It seems that Al-Qaeda has figured out that the best way, to win is to get the us to do what it wants. They are doing this by dropping fake messages about how important Iraq is to them. That are easily found by Us or Allied intelligence and playing on the Neo-cons and Bush's ego with mocking videos.

The simple fact is Iraq is not very important to Al-Qaeda. While they are keeping us bogged down in Iraq with the help indirectly of the many other insurgent groups. That they really have no control over. They are building up all over the rest of the world.
Such as in Pakistan,Afghanistan,Philippines, Indonesia,Thailand all over Europe. While we are wasting our resources in Iraq they are getting stronger.

This government simply doesn't get this,it takes whatever Al-qaeda says at face value. Therefore they are able to set our policy.
