    I didn't watch it; I really don't see the point right now-it's so freaking early and so many things are going to happen in the next year.

    Technically these days, English has become the international language.

    English is our national language, but the ongoing political bullshit idea that everyone who lives here should speak English is ridiculous. 1. It's not an easy language to learn, and people might never pick it up perfectly - but they are trying. 2. If learning the language is so important, they should make classes readily available for free. and 3. People need to just understand that there are neighborhoods all over this country where people don't need to speak English. As long as that phenomenon exists there will always be non-English speakers, so get over it or move to Chinatown and teach for free on the street corners.

    Yea, Gravel was doin' great until he said that. I'm so tired of that English Only crap.

    that's pretty shallow of you
    whether someone declares a "national language" on paper will have little effect on your life

    War/International Trade decides that quality of life you live
    i wanted to like Dennis Kucinich, but his comments on dropping out of WTO and reversing NAFTA just shows how dense he is.

    Mike Gravel's comments on "following the money" is right on about alot of things.
    And did u even hear his comments on gas prices. Tell me what politician besides him has the balls to say that.

    GAS PRICING IS A MARKET PROBLEM !!! You either:
    a) charge more for it
    b) use it less
    c) use a substitute.

    THERE ARE NO OTHER SOLUTIONS
    if you start hearing some lame-o "im gonna punish the gas companies or tax blah blah blah..." just shut up.

    I agree with your comments on Kucinich.

    And I agree with Gravel, except why a)? Why do they have to charge more for it? So they can just keep making more money? Obviously, supply and demand will always be a factor, but when the oil companies aren't necessarily having to pay more, why do we?

    Just tryin' to make sense of it all. So when it comes down to it, I can actually make an educated decision . . . for a change.

    Oil is like $65-$70 a barrel. On 9/11 it was like $25 a barrel. Why do you say oil companies aren't having to pay more?

    Because I am seeking information, facts. Thank you for the insight, clearly that changes my perspective.

    How much has oil gone up since this time last year?

    well charging more for gas is an economic policy that forces people to use it less & look for other ways to getting around/using energy. This is a policy China is currently emphasizing.
    80% of the oil fields are now controlled by other Governments, NOT companies. So the more we consume the more we will be at the will of other leaders. Not good for Americans.
    Plus of course the big one: it is a finite resource.

    There are probably three reasons that gasoline prices appear so high to us today. First, many don't fully appreciate the long run effect that inflation has on prices. Second, many don't appreciate how much our incomes have increased relative to prices. Finally, we still remember 1998 very well, the year in which we encountered the lowest gasoline prices since 1949. Gasoline in 1998 sold for $1.03 per gallon, the equivalent of $1.21 in today's currency. Adjusting for growth in per capita income yields a price of $1.35 per gallon in today's terms. Today's price is more than double that and people resent the increase over the last several years, in part, because they think that 1998 prices were normal. But they were not.

    Now let's put the recent price increase in terms of real outlays. The average household is spending $136 more on gasoline every month than it was in 1998 and $114 per month more than it were spending in 2002. But, believe it or not, real (inflation-adjusted) disposable income per household has increased even faster than have pump prices; by $800 a month since 1998 and $279 a month since 2002.

    Accordingly, Americans are still, on average, economically ahead of the game.

    No one likes high gasoline prices. But they are not as bad as most people think. Keep that in mind the next time some politician or media populist starts handing out the pitchforks.

    You are naive if you think making it a national language has "little effect." There are large legal implications (as was pointed out to Gravel in the debate) that can definitely make things difficult for non-native speakers.

    As for Kucinich, I'm incredibly happy there are candidates that understand that our policy of trade has been moderated for far too long by organizations and trade agreements that pander to the "free trade" exploitations of MNCs.

    Gravel was a disaster every time he started talking. The man is a fool and if you honestly consider him a viable or even desirable candidate so are you.

    The media would beat him up one side and down the other. I also don't think he's going to run.

    Although, I would feel some sense of catharsis to see him win the general election, I would just try to pretend that the last eight years were a dream and that Gore really did win Florida.

    What solutions? The solutions that require a mumble-mouthed dimwitted crotchety old jackass yelling from the side of the stage like someone stealth-fertilized his Metamucil? He's a fucking buffoon.
