I'm glad he won,
and I'm glad he lost.
but I don't know what all this "let the healing begin" stuff is all about.
Now if I could just find a way to get more Pastry Chefs in on those cabinet jobs, life in America would be a much better place.
Pastry Chefs should rule the World.

Of course Pastry Chefs should rule the world. The only qualifications Politicians need is the ability to get themselves elected. Pastry chefs, on the other hand (and Cooks!) can't get a job until they know something and can prove it...

Exactly what part is good about him getting re-elected??????.....the billions spent, the number of soldiers that have died, the fact that the rest of the world has bailed out of Iraq, the fact the price of gas is still going up, the fact that we are no safer today then on 9-11, that we have the biggest deficit ever, the fact that Osama is still on the loose, the fact that the enviroment has been destroyed by this administration?????????
No, let me see, let's look at what the administration has instilled by fear on our nation's weak, religious mind.......homosexuals will take over if we don't ban abortions now!!!!!!!!!.....well it worked!

Hi Chef Manny,
I grew up in England, they've had gay marriage in England since I was a kid and it didn't affect anything in reality.
America isn't ready for that. Its just too soon.
People are just afraid, it takes tolerance.
The world is pretty darn nuts but thats exactly the way it should be , based on the insane decisions people make, they get the consquences they choose.
|By Chefspike (Chefspike) on Tuesday, November 09, 2004 - 12:07 am: Edit|
come on, its over. we don't need to rehash that stuff do we?
one won, and one lost.
thats how it always is. been like that forever.
but ya gotta admit, there were some great lines to laugh at.
"I'm a hunter, I'm a gun owner"
now THATS funny. LOL!!!

Nobody won, we'll all be paying for this for generations.
Not that I thought Kerry was the answer, they both were bad.
|By Jonesg (Jonesg) on Tuesday, November 09, 2004 - 12:11 pm: Edit|
They're both decent guys, both want the same thing, Kerry wasn't different enough, not clearly defined as an alternative.
Don't believe that Michael Moore dogma.
My buddy had a couple of beers with Kerry decades ago at Legal Seafoods in Boston, just a regular sort of guy, same as Bush.
|By Chefspike (Chefspike) on Tuesday, November 09, 2004 - 06:18 pm: Edit|
ya well, i think we are all right.
we as a Americans can go back into our history and find all sorts of bozo's.
But, we keep roll'in on, thats what we do, and at least this election brought out more people that voted.
no matter how they voted....right?
maybe thats a trend we can improve on in the future.
that and selling Flor-e-da to Cuba. HaHaHaHaHa!!!!....just kidding Manny, just kidding.

Formed my opinions about politicians when I was in grade 11 after our Highschool organized a debate with two local politicians gearing up for an election. In my essay I concluded that all politicians are power hungry, dangerous, and foolish to think that they can appeal to all of the public all of the time, (like, "you can fool some of the people some of the time...") Twenty five years later, I still can't find fault with my logic.
I don't play favorites, I can't stand any politicains, on any level of government.

Manny, do you need to call into the Hanity show and rant about the loss of Kerry? You seem a bit too hostile over this election. Did you vote Kerry? Why?
|By Chefmanny (Chefmanny) on Wednesday, November 10, 2004 - 10:10 am: Edit|
I don't care about the loss of Kerry, I care about the state of the union!
I would of voted for Pee Wee Herman if he would of ran against Bush; so yes I did vote for Kerry, not because I thought he was the most effective candidate, but because we've had enough of Bush!
|By Chefgibz0 (Chefgibz0) on Wednesday, November 10, 2004 - 11:02 am: Edit|
Sorry Manny but "we've" had enough of Bush is not valid seeing as how he is still in office. And yes I have had enough of both. Only time will tell if this was the right choice for the union or not. Next time lets kick both of them out of office.
|By Snuffaluff (Snuffaluff) on Wednesday, November 10, 2004 - 04:26 pm: Edit|
So, you're telling me that you didn't like Kerry, but voted for him anyway? Like that would be a good solution to the "problem". That's the reason Kerry wasn't elected, noone liked him, they just voted for him b/c they didn't like Bush.
I'm not disagreeing with you that the state of the union is in trouble, but it has been slowly crumbling long before Bush became President. If you think that Bush is the sole contributer of the destruction of the great nation, you need to wake up.
|By Chefmanny (Chefmanny) on Wednesday, November 10, 2004 - 06:09 pm: Edit|
I know it's not all Bush's fault. I just don't see any movement to a resolution from this administration!...domestically or abroad.
|By Chefspike (Chefspike) on Wednesday, November 10, 2004 - 09:26 pm: Edit|
we need to keep walking forward, and take on these people as they pop up.
limits on how long they can hold a position.
2 terms for everything, and maybe we can get rid of some of these entrenched do nothing losers who couldn't do anything else in life.
more Spanish and Blacks and Women should be appointed to positions that affect our everyday lives.
GET MORE PEOPLE TO VOTE.
don't let anyone group run our country, we as a people, Americans, should run this country.
get rid of those lobbyists, they are evil.
we will be fine, we always have been.
We Are Americans.
we do more, produce more, spend more and GIVE MORE away than anybody else on earth.
now that says something.
and we have great allies, and getting more everyday.
End Of Rant.

"more Spanish and Blacks and Women should be appointed to positions that affect our everyday lives"
President George W. Bush chooses Alberto Gonzales to succeed Attorney General John Ashcroft. There's a start right there Spike...

and I'm happy for it.
maybe it will show, once again, to those who think that repub's are mosters, that we are not.
we are,just everyday people.
except here in Los Angeles. HaHaHa !!!

and what does everybody say of libertarians??
|By Point83702 (Point83702) on Friday, November 12, 2004 - 04:29 pm: Edit|
I'd say from the information listed on their site I generally agree with about half of their platform. I agree in part or completely with the libertarian stance on drugs, social security, gun control, taxes, foreign policy, the environment and welfare. That being said I do disagree with quite a few of their positions. To get in depth on these issues would take forever. I have friends who are libertarians and the conversation is always lively. That's my $.02.
