Romney saved the Olympics?

I have a question for Mr. Romney:

Did you save the Olympics or was it hundreds of thousands of brave and loyal Americans that attended the events and paid $5.00 for a Coke (Not to mention the the $224.5 million in security costs contributed by outside sources....)?

And what did you have against the Boy Scouts?

"Romney barred Boy Scouts from public participation in 2002 Olympics
The 2002 Olympics - run by Mitt Romney - was the only Olympics that restricted the Boy Scouts from participating. According to news reports, this was apparently because of pressure from homosexual activists. (But also, according to reports, homosexual groups participated fairly prominently.) Romney would not respond to reporters' questions about that action."

McCain wrong on military...

John McCain says that it is no waste of young American lives to have standing armies in Iraq, South Korea, Germany, etc. Evidently he has not viewed the movie, "Jarhead." While I agree that standing armies are preferable to fighting armies, losing American lives or having Americans in foreign POW camps, I believe that this point of view ignores get the facts: National spending on military is money that is not being spent on education. Resources that are used for the military are not being used to develop new energy resources. Doctors that are serving on the front lines are not developing a cure for cancer. At best, military spending will produce little to nothing, at worst, when wielded, it will be destructive. And guess whose money will be used to rebuild what we have destroyed. We need to use diplomacy to actually solve issues in the world, use science and economic incentives to stop our addiction to foreign oil, and use bio-medical resources to allow more Americans to have longer richer more productive lives. Finally we need to get our troops off the front lines and into Colleges and Universities, which is where they will prepare themselves to solve the world’s future issues that we are only beginning to foresee.

Healthcare, Cancer and Autism.

We will save money as a nation if we have a healthy population so it behooves us to provide the entire population with preventative health care and encourage the agricultural producers to provide healthy foods through the usfda Cancer and Autism spectrum disease rapid and sudden increase in incidence demand research into there causes and cures. This is the new AIDS of the Millieneum. Check the numbers. This is growing faster. And it shows no signs of letting up. I am grouping the two because I believe the cause will eventually be show to be the same: Pollution of our environment.
