Randy's right about fear. Fear is actually the enemy, in the US and to a lesser extent in Canada. The leaders and right wing pundits create a culture of fear so that we will continue to support the poor decisions made by the leaders. Fear was and is used to sell us on everything from the war in Iraq, to the right to bear arms, to ballistic missile defense, to attacking Iran, to Obama's preacher. The sooner people see that they are being played, the better.

For a lot of those things but not all, yes, us. "In the US, and to a lesser extent in Canada." That said, how about "the American people."

Such a waste; think of all the used cars that could have been sold by now.

Also keep in mind that Dubya (where we would we be without him?) gave us the keen observation that, "The French don't have a word for entrepreneur."

Randy Newman is brilliant, but so is Martin Simpson.

Between the politicians keeping me scared shitless to the advertisers keeping me constantly horny, I'm starting to get a rash.

You left out global warming, so beloved by the left side of spectrum
