This has been asked a thousand times...

I have to ask this one more time, even though everyone else has asked it.

If Bush wants us to sacrifice for the war on terrorism, and conservatives are saying we should stick together and not let the media make us chickens, then why aren't they advocating raising the income tax for the top bracket to 70%?

Oh, I know why, because that would solve the deficit problem and fund the war and then there'd be nothing to complain about.

And it figures that he's leaving his successor to weave everything that he unraveled back together.

Even his dad wasn't this stubborn. Even Bush Sr. had to renig on his "Read my lips!" mantra after Gulf War I started getting costly.

Dubya, I think, is the only president in history ever to cut taxes during war time.

I don't think raising taxes will ever pay off the deficit. The more money coming in, the more politicians will find to spend it on, Democrats and Republicans alike.
