Had any buses blow up in your neighborhood lately? Any buildings have planes crash into them? And its not the federal governments responsibility for Hurricane Katrina, was Louisiana & its government at fault. Exxon sells gas because thats what drives our economy, governments arent in the gas bussiness. China, Walmart, ya lost me, must be your own little conspiracy nut thoery. The border, I'll give you that, he has done terrible, and isn;'t a democrat one that will do any different.
