“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

The worst ever...

Not satisfied with holding only the title as "Worst President in U.S. History", this weekend, former President Jimmy Carter cemented his legacy as "Worst Former-President in U.S. History" as well...

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Former President Carter says President Bush's administration is "the worst in history" in international relations, taking aim at the White House's policy of pre-emptive war and its Middle East diplomacy.
The criticism from Carter, which a biographer says is unprecedented for the 39th president, also took aim at Bush's environmental policies and the administration's "quite disturbing" faith-based initiative funding.
"I think as far as the adverse impact on the nation around the world, this administration has been the worst in history,".

Then, not being satisfied with attacking Bush, Jimmy the Dihimmi felt obliged to attack our best ally in the world too...

Carter also lashed out Saturday at British prime minister Tony Blair. Asked how he would judge Blair's support of Bush, the former president said: "Abominable. Loyal. Blind. Apparently subservient."
"And I think the almost undeviating support by Great Britain for the ill-advised policies of President Bush in Iraq have been a major tragedy for the world," Carter told British Broadcasting Corp. radio.

As President, Jimmy Carter gave us the highest gas prices ever, presided over 14% mortgage rates, high inflation and unemployment, a botched hostage rescue attempt, and the invention of something called the "misery index", used because the media had run out of terms bad enough to accurately describe how awful the Carter presidency was. Since the voters unceromoniously kicked him to the curb, Jimmeh has been lashing out in lots of ways...snuggling up to various third-world, murdering dictators, criticizing America's ally's around the world for siding with the U.S., befriending terrorists who want to destroy Israel and the U.S., and abandoning all historical precedents of decorum by bashing a sitting President.

Thank goodness Jimmy Carter is just as irrelevant as he is embarassing.

What's a little war (and thousands of American lives) against high gas prices!

PS: Gas prises from around the world:
Netherlands 6.73
Norway 6.27 (world's 3rs largest oil exporter)
UK 6.13
Belgium 6.10
Italy 5.91
France 5.80

Americans pay about the same as they do in India...

Earp, what in the world are you yammering about now?

I'm not defending Bush's Iraq policy...in fact he's botched almost every decision there to the point that there's no good way out now. Not to mention that he, if he signs this disastrous immigration bill, along with the botched Iraq adventure, may have handed over the presidency to Hillary.

As for comparing gas prices in other countries, they are socialist or quasi-socialist countries in terms of onerous taxation on fuel. We tax fuel at an absurd rate as well but not like them.

If your only defense of Jimmy the Dihimmi is that gas prices are high now as they were with him, then allow me to give you a brief historical and economic lesson...

Jimmy's first mistake was to pull the rug out from under the Shah of Iran, allowing the radical Ayatollah to seize power, and in doing so, ushering in the age of anti-American radical Islamism. The resulting revolution in Iran led to a shortage of oil supply, so world prices naturally rose. Then Jimmeh stupidly compounded his first error with his second...price controls. Any first-year econ student can tell you what happens when the gov't sets prices lower than the market dictates...you create even more shortages and even higher prices, which create more shortages etc..etc..etc.

Earp, I never complain about gas prices as long as they are a function of the free-market dynamics of supply and demand.

I don't get your constant economic and cultural relativism. Why do you insist on always comparing the U.S. to other countries, which have different governments and economic forces?

Apple and oranges my friend, apples and oranges.
