I do agree that it is a bad thing for average citizens to gun down our
gallant pResident -- better that he should be left alone in a room with
the three million or so citizens who lost their jobs because of Bush and
his tragic policies. If Bushit lived three minutes, it would be cruel and
unusual punishment -- with torture being the most likely outcome.... :)
Better to raise taxes on the rich, and give them tax incentives to hire
new *American* workers. I'm not big on telling the free market what
to do, but do we use tax policy in this manner all the time....
