"The Cafferty File": Teddy bear outrage?If Iraq is the third most corrupt country in the world, why does the U.S. continue to pour hundreds of billions of dollars into it?
It's easy, Jack: the corrupt politicians here in America are receiving kickbacks from the corporate greed that has grown up around the Iraqi government that we are backing. It's easy for Bush to request more money because the more he spends of our money, the more money the American corporations make for providing supposed services for rebuilding. -John
Jack, The simplest and most accurate way to answer this question is with one tiny little greasy word "OIL". -Mike, Loveland, Colorado
Jack, The answer is simple: we keep pouring money into Iraq because we have one of the most corrupt administrations in American History. Teapot Dome? Watergate? Small change compared to this bunch. -Jim
Good question, Jack. I wish I knew the answer myself. It's so warming to know that we keep pumping billions of dollars into a country that is getting more corrupt by the day, and fail to notice our own economic shortcomings here at home. -Bob, Ann Arbor, MichiganWill Mitt Romney's speech about being a Mormon faith help or hurt his campaign?
Jack, It won't make any difference. Those who are not part of the Christian right don't care. Those who are will settle for nothing less than a "savior". -Daryl, Ontario
It doesn't matter to me what religion a candidate is. I think most of us are interested in what they are going to do about the issues at hand, like immigration, Iraq, high gas prices etc.-Janet, Live Oak, Florida
It is likely that Romney's speech will only hurt him. As a former practicing Mormon myself who is still sympathetic to the religion, I have found that openly discussing the faith only stirs up more questions than it answers. -Dave, Seattle, WashingtonIs it the government's job to limit junk food sales in schools?
I am a tenth grade high school student and I am writing a article in our school newspaper about banning junk food but as soon as I shared it with my class, everyone jumped on my case asking me why is it my business what they eat. -Sade, Maryland
The local schools here make a ton of money off of the selling of junk food. The soda and candy vendors give them a cut. The schools won’t want to loose that money. -Chris, Scranton, Pennsylvania
Jack, is this a serious question? We need to get the government out of the child-rearing business and let parents do their job. Don't our politicians have other things to be concerned with?-Charles, Arkansas
Jack, I think that if this law actually passes it will wind up in the Supreme Court within 6 months. While they may mean well, the federal government has no right to dictate what children eat. -Michelle, Somerville, New Jersey
