#1 This can't be true, ABC/NBC/CBS/CNN/BBC/NYT say there is no electricity in Iraq. They wouldn't lie, right? Hello?

#2 "My family is happy," he says. "I am also more focused on my job because I no longer have to worry about money."

Screw those people/groups that are questioning our commitment in Iraq. Stay the course and see it through to its logical conclusion. We will all be better off for it.

#3 There's no electricity because of all the folks buying power hog window ac units, electric water heaters, stereos... etc. It's a terrible thing.

#5 â€™I am also more focused on my job because I no longer have to worry about money.’

I bet this also cuts down on the corruption since the police (and other government officals) dont have to take bribes just to keep their head above water.

I wonder what the pay rate is in some of the surrounding countries? Any idea?

#6 Damn,how come things are cost so little there and so much here.
Been seeing tv adds for"The Canadian Drug Store"claiming the same high quality meds made by the same companys,for 1/3 the cost of the price as sold here in the U.S.

What the hell is up with that?
Sounds like the American consumer is getting hosed!
