Youtube of PM Brown being given a tongue lashing as only the British know how to do.

This is the equivalent of one of our House members lambasting our President..face to face...in public...

Said as only the British can say, in the only system that I know of that allows such public, uninterrupted, face to face disagreement with a leader by one his/her "subordinates", making it clear that the PM is subordinate to the PEOPLE.

If you want a breath of fresh air, I recommend you listen to it. It is from Britain, true, but we will have the same numbers as he is talking about in this clip in just 2 short years. The question is not Republican versus Democrat, since Republican "leaders" were complicit in getting us here and virtually silent as our Admin made it all worse, it is one of what is good for the future of our country.

Use your good sense, do you really want our kids to be burdened with 4 times the budget deficit of Bush, and more trillions of national debt that most of us can even fathom, so that they are the ones who have to live through our collapse? Are we really that selfishly ignorant, that we want what we want now, with no adult long term regard to the future? Do we really want to finish destroying the upper 10% of this country, who paid (paid) the majority of this country's bill until now? If they no longer can make the money that foots the bill, what happens?

Combine that with the fighting in South Korea's Parliament and you can wish for more of that and less of the insincere collegiality of our legislatures.

There you go again, taking your clues from foreign governments.

I have a paternal affection for South Korea, having helped preserve it.

You missed the point, Walter. You're not supposed to go native.

Hey, you're not one of those Manchurian Candidate types, are you?
