The other 2 must have been in a coma for the last 8 years. And or were just names taken off grave markers to fill the quota.

Edit: Never mind i found a pic of the 2 people that say its better out of the 10

So what's that make the GOP nomination worth? John Garner's "Bucket of warm spit?" Maybe the GOP should cancel its St Paul gab-fest and take their money to Vegas or the Cayman Islands? Depending on where it came from. Acting outside Congress, Bush43 dropped $200 b. on the Wall Street boys and he implied he would drop another couple hundred billion to bail out the BIG speculators in unsecured mortgages. Sweet Jesus, where are the FREE MARKET people when you need them?

Neither Bush43 nor Chairman Bernanke offered ANY help to the millions of poor working stiffs who were conned into this scam seeking the fulfillment of the American dream now turned nightmare. For them it is a real prospect of joining the 500,000 other Americans (25% are veterans - hey GOP mantra we love our vets) whose address is "On The Street." Thank You Republicans! You do take care of your own! Family Values.

Q. For bragging rights. Will the Bush43 Mortgage Meltdown EQUAL to or SURPASS the Reagan Savings and Loan CRASH?

Yesterday's Old Senator "Grand-dad" McCain will crash in the sharpshooting of the Youthful Senator Obama as the Next Change Agent!

Did I hear it right today?
Sen. McCain was ballyhooing his love for MLKJr today when someone said he voted AGAINST making Jan. 15 a national holiday? Surely I misheard?

About hese 'poor working stiffs' who were allegedly 'conned' ...
You make it sound like they are all blue collar hard working people who aren't smart enough to read a mortgage contract. The fact is that people overextended themselves. They bought when they shouldn't have. Eyes bigger than their stomachs sort of thing.

Many people were into a speculative market. They bought outside their range because they wanted to make money on an inflated market.

So sad .. too bad.

This is how capitalism works. I shouldn't have to bail anyone out just because they over extended themselves. I bought responsibly. I shouldn't have to pay for irresponsible people.

The market is going through a NECESSARY CORRECTION. Prices of homes were way too high. It is correcting itself. People who bought while prices were high took a chance ... they lost. That's the way of Capitalism.


Did I hear it right today? Sen. McCain ... said he voted AGAINST making Jan. 15 a national holiday?

He first voted against it. He said that all the files on him should be released before they make a national holiday out of someone.

A while later he then decided to go ahead and vote for it anyways. Even without the files being released.

Cleaning house means getting rid of all of them, FF... D, R... you can keep any other parties there. What'll that leave ya'? 3 from the Senate and 7 from the House? (fictitious figures, I may be high)

I think everyone knows this system is so horribly corrupt and broken that there is only one way to fix it. And the Fed and this Admin. are in the process of doing that right now. Only to even more so benefit to the elite, not you and me... I hope we all know what is to be done when the time comes.

This is how capitalism works we shouldnt have to bail out anyone and that includes oil companies with their corporate welfare, big pharma and their welfare, and the big banks who is lobbying as we speak to have the fed buy all the bad debt on their books (from bad investments) and let us foot the bill and yes the banks that made bad investments should of been allowed to file bankruptcy that is how it works in a capitalistic society.

The reality however is its capitalism free market on profits (no regulation, no wealth sharing with the people, no taxes) but socialism on losses (government bailouts, corporate welfare, Socialism for the rich)

Thing is .. the dems run congress. They have a lower approval rating then ewen the Bush adminisration. Everyone forgets that. So I figured I'd beat the 'it's Bush's fault' group and make sure everyone remembers that the dems control congress. Gotta get rid of them too.

ALL OF THEM! You are right!

Fair enough there Flyers. I wasn't addressing that when I said what I said. One important counter I would add though is that, although Congress typical have "the say", as was the case during prior Presidencies, that became less and less so with the current Administration. If we vote Mcain into office that probably won't change..

And I agree with you. On voting the Dems out. Personally I seldom approve of either Republicans or Democrats

Survey: "19% Say USA on Right Track." Who ARE These People?

www.huffingtonpost.com...

"The surprising thing to me is not that 81 percent are depressed and say that "things in the country have pretty seriously gotten off on the wrong track" but that 19 percent are not. It means that out of 233 million noninstitutionalized American adults, 44 million believe the country is "generally going in the right direction."

Think about it - 44 million noninstitutionalized adult Americans with continuing faith that our ship of state is sailing on the right course.

A puzzler is that 28 percent of those surveyed think Dubya is doing a great job, i.e., 65 million Americans. So 21 million Americans (65 million minus 44 million) think the United States is on the wrong track but Dubya does a great job. The ship is heading in the wrong direction, but the captain is a heckuva helmsman."

81% is a bit promising for me... shows me some hope on my running common sense issue.
