Thats right Obamatons! Time for you to listen to this savior of yours and BUY! BUY! BUY! Sure he said this on the 3rd, and on the 5th the market dropped over 280 points, BUT THAT IS MEANINGLESS, if the messiah said so, so will it be!

Obama said that because he knows that 2/3rds of the market is private capital, and he knows that no market can survive without it. So lets see here....

He wants you to buy into the American economy to prop it up and "help" us make some money.... Yet his own policies will prohibit people earning over 250k a year from donating to charities by as much as 28%....... riiiight...... Why would he do this? It eliminates tax deductions for the wealthy. Ironically, he wants to use this extra revenue to help pay for his "universal health care program", and 74% of all medical research is funded by.....you guessed it......private donations...... yeah this is gonna work out real well. Who needs research anyway! Cancer!? Stem Cells?! Who cares!? Certainly not our Government.

So many of us screamed out loud that if the government tried to bail out GM and the rest of Detroit, that it would be detrimental to the dollar and irrelevant to the workforce. Well guess what!? We bailed out GM and the UAW, GM took that money and opened a plant in Brazil, and today they are saying that will probably file chapter 11 anyway. And 600,000 more people are out of work. And what does CNN do? They post an article about how Obama plan has already created 60, yeah, sixty jobs. Yippee

But don't fear, Obama will cut the budget, after he spends an amount equal to half the GDP


I am pissed. I am pissed off at every single talking bobble head on TV. I pissed that a person can get elected in this country by campaign on "hope" and "change", and literally, nothing, and I absolutely mean, nothing else. I am Pissed that The Media Built up McCain, Built up Obama, and made the masses choose from that load of worthless crap.

If you insist on participating in this left/right fracus to it's final stupidity then fine, come on this thread and tell me how GW did it, Tell me how the Republicans destroyed the economy. Then sit there with a straight face and say out loud how you opposed the Bush bailout, but approved of the exact same one Obama did. Tell me how You are against the war, and then tell me that it's ok when Obama Bombs Pakistan. Tell me Gorge Bush is a mass murderer, then tell me how you enjoyed watching Bill Clinton Impose an embargo on Iraq that staved over 1 million people to death, of which most were children under the age of five. Tell me all about how Clinton had a budget "surplus", then tell me that it was ok that he moved Social Security to a different balance sheet that had the US at 25 trillion dollar in debt, IN THE LATE 1990'S.

This entire Government is complete crap. It is a steaming pile of fecal matter, it and everyone associated with it, needs to be flushed.

That is Obama talking out both sides of his mouth. You also forgot to mention that we need health care reform and we need to do it now, but he doesn't know how.

Sounds about right for someone like him. We are going to continue to act like we are on the campaign trail and not actually put forth any policies. We are going to spend a bunch of money and call it policy.

Makes me sick!

A star and a flag from me

I get really annoyed at the closed mindednes of most people. It is unfortunate that they only seek out information that supports their existing beliefs and then only regurgitate the same garbage over and over again.

If they were honest, they would agree that there is, now, very little difference between the Dems and Reps. The elites, that WE have put in Washington, do not care about US or U.S. Their only concerns are for those who purchase the $10,000.00 plates, at the "fundraisers". A large amount of the funds, from the "stimulus packages" and the "omnibus spending bills" will, ultimately, end up at these "fundraisers".

Yes, I am furious that the CEOs of the failing companies are being paid enormous salaries for doing crappy jobs. But, I know I don't want the government controlling such things.

Yes, I am furious that Bush and Obama have only worsened the situation, by throwing money at it. And, apparently, have plans to continue doing so.

However, my extreme anger is toward our Senators and Representatives, who have ignored the wishes of their constituents, at every turn. Their smug, elitist atitudes make me sick.

The most recent stomach turning incident was when Tim Geithner, the Treasury Secretary, announced the Obama administration would begin to seek out and prosecute those who abused the tax system and failed to pay their taxes. Pardon me while I shout a few expletives.

Geithner, who had avoided paying at least $10,000.00 in taxes prior to assuming his current appointment, is chosen to announce this? Can you get more 'in your face' than that?

Hypocrites one and all.

At least Bush had the god damned common decency to come off as a man who cared about people, but had unfortunately surrounded himself with advisors and administration higher up who held self interests above the interests of the nation.

This worthless horse's ass currently occupying the White House, however, seems for the life of me to be purposefully and actively pushing an agenda specifically directed at wrecking not just the economy, but any hope of recovery as well. It isn't even a socialist utopia he's leadimg us to at this juncture. It is more and more looking like he's driving us toward Hell itself. What a great tribute to the legacy of the nation that proved the world wrong and actually elected a black man with an advertised (since proven to be a lie) "progressive" platform.

Would any of you be willing to buy government bonds knowing they may be worthless but as a gesture of your patriotism? Could we call them patriot bonds? I would buy a few even believing they were worthless but then, I don't want the President or our government to fail. If I get a stimulus check I'll spend it right away on stuff made or grown in the USA for that matter.

Well over 650,000 jobs lost in feb. But the great obama has created.....wait for it.... 60 jobs............ WOOO HOOOO

You know what is funny? He says his program will create or save 4 million jobs, how the hell can that possibly be measured? It can't, I guess that's the whole reason he said it.

It's almost sad watching Obama right now. Though he tries to be stalwart... its like watching a person at the beach trying to stand up against a big wave. You see it coming.

Though, he's doing nothing to endear me to his position, as I think he is getting some very bad, idealistic, advice.

Do you really think anyone is purposely trying to destroy America, or that they could possibly be incompetant or ill-advised?
Anyway, I started buying stock before Obama suggested it....

If you buy stocks based on what a politician says rather then earning reports and the general economic outlook you deserve to lose money. Economic darwinism in action...

Everybody I know actually thinks that he hated people.

It's fascinating how socioeconomic status can shape perception.

(For the record, I think that Bush seems like a very nice person. I was just making an observation that is interesting to probably nobody except myself).

Don't worry he'll be coming after what's left of your 401k/IRA soon. It'll be hidden in positive euphemisms like "to protect your future", "for your own good", "for the nations good", etc... What will he do with it you might ask? Why use it to buy treasuries when foreigners stop of course.

I for one DO think there are those who are betting on America to fail..OBAMA for one..
Lets see..everytime the stocks go up the least bit, OBAMA comes on TV and talks the market down..
Everything Obama has done these past weeks is making the economy fall..and fall fast...
Don't think for a min. he's not singing "Ring around the rosies" and praying we all fall down..because thats when...
WE ALL MUST DEPEND ON GOVERMENT TO SAVE US..
Which is EXACTLY why he has been rushing to get in all these new big goverment policies...
Obama was a nobody, from nowhere...and THATS where he is taking all of us....
He is a con artist, leftist, socialist, with an agenda that will not be stopped unless WE THE PEOPLE wake the hell up BEFORE its to late!!!
We all sit here and bitch while a madman destroys our rights, our Liberty and our Freedom...
I hope anyone who voted for the bum hides that fact because when "we all fall down" we wont just be going after those ass's in Washington...

Liberals have been trying to destroy the United States for at least the past 50 years.

They have finally achieved their ultimate goal with this rotton scumbag in the white house and his scumbag cronies in the legislature.

Wake Up for Christ's sake!



Buy stock's...yeah thats right. I can eat stocks. Yumm
