Links to Make You Think

When asked about the economy, Bush said, “You know, you need to talk to economists. I think I got a B in Econ 101. I got an A, however, in keeping taxes low and being fiscally responsible with the people’s money.” In college, he actually got a C- in Economics.

List of countries by their account balances. Who is in the red? It took me a while to find the United States.

Jon Swift asks the question: Are We Tasering People Enough?

So you’re about to be invaded by the United States. Advice for Iran. (via Grow-A-Brain)

The US Embassy in Baghdad. This is the largest US Embassy built – roughly the size of Vatican City – and at $600 million (£300 million) the most expensive. At a time when millions of Baghdadis outside the green zone receive only a couple of hours of water and electricity daily, Iraqis observe that this project has been completed on time, on budget, and is entirely self-sufficient with its own fresh water supply, electricity plant, sewage treatment facility, maintenance shops and warehouses.

British health care professionals react to Michael Moore’s movie Sicko. They are appalled at the American system, think that the British system may not be as great as the movie paints it, but that’s only because the British don’t spend nearly as much money on health care as Americans do.

For Miss C and others: What grade did you receive in your Yale economics class? If you didn't attend Yale, what grade did you receive in your college economics class?

Why don't you post examples of democrat flubs like, Ted Kennedy getting expelled from Harvard after getting caught cheating on a Ethics exam.

Or Kennedy, being the only Senator know who got away with murder?

Or Byrd unanimously election as Exalted Cyclops by his fellow KKK members.

Or Kerry's grades at Yale being generally lower than President Bush.

Or Hillary Clinton failing to pass the the D.C. bar exam which is widely regarded as about the easiest exam in the country to pass.

Until you, Miss C, begin posting detractors about some of your fellow liberal democrats, your simply come across as "petty another Bush hater."

I got an A- in Econ, but I didn't go to Yale. Have any democrats recently misrepresented their grades or expertise? Have any democratic presidents ruined our economy lately? Send me a link.
