    Is that the first you've seen of it?
    I have not seen one myself because I think that in my part of the woods,
    the response to that is a foregone conclusion.

    however, a friend of mine that travels in less blue areas of the country said he's seen a couple. Then, Tea Harpy Palin referred to one of these last week.

    The Miami-Herald has a story on it

    http://www.miamiherald.com/2010/05/19/1638252/i-95-billboard-features-george.html

    Of COURSE the people behind have remained anonymous and the message board has been lit up and remains full
    To me that message is obscene icon_confused.gif

    I liked George W. Bush as our President, and do NOT like Barack Obama. His policies and appointees are leading us down the garden path to socialism, and will be the ruin of this country.

    Seriously--
    What's wrong with Socialism?
    It seems to work in most countries in Europe, who are older, wiser, have better healthcare (accessible to everyone), free universities, a higher per capita living, a higher STANDARD of living, and a happier population.

    I think a nod to our elders is in order here, in a nation where 1% of the population owns 36% of the money.

    The destruction of the middle class will be the ruin of this country and that eventuality thrived under the Bush Administration. If concern for the well-being of the country were truly your primary concern. I expect you were incredibly incensed by that. I also presume you are very worried about the lack of access to affordable education in this first world nation and that you are keenly aware that if we do not have a highly educated workforce ( or electorate ) we will be overtaken and become little more than a marketplace for more advanced nations.

    If you are concerned about deficits, a point of contention over which I would wholeheartedly support you, then surely you are watching keenly over military spending and have great misgivings about the cost of our military engagements. Right?

    Now what is it that you liked about the Big Dubya?
    It couldn't have been his approach to domestic economic issues could it? because he spent a good bit of his presidency tryin to convince us that we should Privatize our Social Security
    .............................. News Flash ................. you would have lost your entire retirement after the 2008 crash
    How about regulating corporate America? Yeah the corporations regulated America very well under Bush
    Then there was the downsizing of Government where the EPA and The FDA
    FEMA were staffed with cronies and goofballs remember Katrina? and Chairman BROWN icon_eek.gif

    Foreign policy ............... icon_rolleyes.gif He was a friggin War Criminal of the first order
    Torture anybody?

    Intelligence ...... 3 words
    MY PET GOAT

    and that's off the top of my head

    NOW Socialism
    Do you even know what the word means?
    If you think that barack Obama is actually going to transform this country into what YOU believe is a socialist state I don't need to be talking to you because you haven't taken the prescribed set of meds from your doctor yet
    and I'll ask you a set of questions
    Do you want to disband your fire Dept?
    your police dept?
    Your local school system?
    Because my man .... they are paid for by your government
    which makes them YES
    SOCIALIST .................

    I hope that has cleared up any confusion icon_wink.gif

    I would think it merely serves to reinforce existing political loyalties. Republicans & Teabaggers will relate to it, everyone else will be sickened.

    To me it's a reason to NOT vote Republican this November, reminding me of the Bush disasters, lies, deceptions, stupidities and illegal actions. Republicans will be happy to see the goofy face of St. George once again. What next, Dick Cheney?

    This is the one in Miami-Dade County, Florida, along I-95:

    Hahahaha

    Americans never cease to amaze me with statements like these.

    Dude, you wouldn't recognize socialism if it would jump out of a cash dispenser naked and waved a red flag right in your face.

    Having seen a significant portion of the former-communist and modern-day European-socialist world, I can tell you with the utmost confidence: you have no fucking clue!

    Actually I think it was supposed to be a satire. But if nothing else it remind me of two things:

    1. Bush was a spoiled egotistical, privleged idiot.
    2. Never waste my time on another Oliver stone movie, it's netflix.

    Are you aware of what's going on in Greece, Spain, Portugal, Ireland and the UK at the moment?

    They're collapsing under the weight of their social(ist) programs.



    Nice try mate, but sorry.

    They're collapsing under the weight of their debt.

    Just like the US is heavily burdened by debt. Borrowed from the largest communist country in the world, by the way.

    All in all it has very little to do with their social security systems, which is what Americans commonly refer to when they bark 'socialism'. The problems of the UK are also hardly comparable to those of Greece. Greece is a basket case that entered the EMU under false pretenses, and is endangering the entire union as a whole.

    Both Greece and Portugal have social security systems that are not even close to the level of those of for example Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark and Finland. Yet you hear nothing about these countries, other than in the context of having to bail out the Greeks.

    At the end of the day let's stick to math: out of the top of my head the US defence budget for 2011 is 641,000,000,000 dollars. Divide that by the number of Americans and see what the number is. I'm pretty sure that number covers the average health insurance policy.

    No offense... but you're 24 years old... you don't possibly have an understanding of socialism and its impact on societies and economies.



    Right, absolutely impossible that I have an understanding of any such things. icon_rolleyes.gif

    southbeach150 - mate it was the corporate greed of the free market Wall St boffins under Bush and his cronies that caused the global financial crisis in the first place ...so don't go citing Greece, Spain etc...

    Australia would be seen by you as socialist (horror of horror - a great health system, proper support for everyone who occasionally fall on hard times etc)...and yet it is the ONLY country in the world not to experience a recession..

    The rest of the world is not missing Bush - it is still heaving a collective sigh of relief that he is gone...gone...gone...
