Wow Geneesis... there is a smart one...

Didn't you have enough of GW Bush and Chaney and their crooked friends? That mentality is what lead the world to its current state.... more of that corruption will only lead to more disasters

Prof – I found you comment to Geneesis a little insulting. Not that it is surprising. Mentality? I like Bush, present tense. He was President during a very hard time, 9/11. I know that was a cause for celebration among some people. I saw women leaping from buildings, holding hands with co-workers, and those emptying trash cans or fire fighters, dying. Now, tell me about crooked? What does that mean to you? I call is murdering innocent people in its most extreme, fanatical form.
