Why don't we just say it, GOVERNMENT IS A FAILURE. It's just going to get worse. How far it will go is anybody's guess. Whatever the amount of time it will take, don't hold your breath. MM

More wealth was created under Bush than any time in history. The bad part is that the vast majority of this wealth was formed trading in what was really trash stock. When the bottom fell out more wealth was lost than any time in history. Why would they allow this type of trading which was once banned by law?

Bush came into office with a surplus and no end in sight. He made more tax cuts than anyone ever and just let the deficit grow and grow. he didn’t do anything about the climbing gas prices like opening the reserves to stabilize the market as a result the entire populous was fleeced of unimaginable wealth.

I wont even mention Medicare D or the endless wars that helped to backrupt the country.

The collapse under Bush looks like an engineered failure.

WHY?

I'm originally from the deep south and am in contact with a dozen or so people who are 'tea partyers' and you know what they tell me they want? In their own words they want that god da^%@ N!g#@! out of the White House. Make no mistake, THAT is what they want. They are thrilled to have a movement which allows them to be racist in public.


To be honest, I think you are outright lieing about having friends that said that. I think you are making up an example to push your own racist agenda. I am from and still live in Louisiana. I have been to tea parties here and there are a mix of all races there. You know what they really want? They want the rights granted by the Constitution to be upheld. They want less taxes with more fiscal responsibility by the government. They want smaller government and less intrusion upon their private lives.

You know what I want? I want people like you that know nothing about people like me, a person that attends tea parties, to stop pretending you know and spouting off your mindless rants.

You're damn right. But prepare to be raked over the coals by all the good M'urkans who get their news from bumper stickers.

And, Whats your point? You really think they would let one man bring us down? There must be a reason for it, maybe competition with cheep labor else were in the world.
E.G.
Devalue the dollar, sell the populous poor quality/cheap merchandise in place of the quality good we are used to, keep the pay the same. Problem solved. Or maybe they just tried to force the Chinese Yuen up and screw with their cheap labor that way.

It’s all very scary friend. Have you noticed there is no ammunition on the shelves? It does make you wonder what’s next!

You tell me who Glenn Beck is? What did he do? You see I really don't watch CNN or FOX news, but from what I've heard when flipping the channels, Glenn didn't seem to be so far off, but again, I only watched him for about 3 minutes...

He is a good speaker, he carries himself well, but all I've heard is that he cried or something like that when talking to Orielly, or something to that nature... Sorry if I misquoted...

I am really curious is he that different than Sean Hanity or Michael Savage? Again, I don't really watch CNN or FOX at all but thought I would ask... Did Glenn do what A. Jones did and just make a complete arss of himself?

But I do like to listen to Michael Savage and Sean Hannity on the radio...

Hey now, I resemble some of those remarks! Nothing will change --don't let anything fool you. So many factors need to happen for change.

Everything from not reading legislation to companies can fire long time employees without getting their retirement. Everything from the past 20 years and even longer has been set against us, little by little.

Nothing will change because there's too many armchair quarterbacks and backseat drivers. Nothing will change. Too many people who only look forward to getting hammered every night after work instead of getting caught up and getting involved with their families and country.

A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both.

A website needs to be set up. A website of watchdogs and whistleblowers. People who can report from all states on laws that aren't getting attention. A website of action, instead of words. A website of knowledge instead of rumors, confusion and disinformation. A website of people who love this country and are tired of the crooks getting away with it all. A website of people with contacts, friends and a desire for truth, justice and, Oh My God, the American Way!

The American Way is NOT about screwing your best friend, or the people of your district! The American Way is NOT about not reading legislation before your important vote is counted! The American Way is NOT about a law with 2000+ pages that can't be read in time for the vote that happens in 20 minutes! The American Way is NOT turning your head and looking the other way --it's about looking someone in the eye and telling them exactly that what they're doing is wrong!

The American Way is about working together, not in opposition like they've conditioned us to believe lately, tending to your family and your country and THEN if there's time going to that baseball game.

The PTB have played a smart middle game, and just like in chess, they've gotten control of the all-important middle of the board! They've done everything on such a small scale that many have not noticed their crimes against God and Country and their fellow countrymen.

But is it time to say game over? No! For that's what they want us to believe --make us think it's too late so why should we even bother? I personally have won a chess game after being down a rook, my Queen and a Knight. It is not game over, it never is!

Yes, this is One Nation Under. But under "what". It isn't God anymore. Perhaps we can say under "fear." Or under "the gun." Whatever it is, it's time to bring this great nation back over to us so it's once again by the people and FOR the people.

Peace and not pieces.

In order to get elected to the House you need to make approx 21 thousand dollars a month in donations.

In order to get elected to the Senate you need to make approx 100 thousand dollars a month in donations.

Are you beginning to see the problem???

From Congress Daily:


In 1976, winning candidates for the House spent an average of $87,000 on their campaigns. In 2004, they spent an average of $1 million. For Senate candidates, the average cost of winning jumped from $609,000 in 1976 to $7 million in 2004. The Center for Public Integrity's study was sponsored by the Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy.

And I think YOU are lieing. Where is my proof?


“Tea Party” leader Mark Williams appeared on a CNN panel on “Anderson Cooper 360″ last night and promptly set to work discrediting himself and his movement. Williams denounced those carrying blatantly racist signs against President Obama during the tea parties as “no more part of the mainstream of America than the hippies who wear nipple clips and feather boas in San Francisco streets during so-called peace demonstrations.”

Cooper had done his homework, however, and caught Williams blatantly misrepresenting himself: “What you’re saying makes sense to me here when I’m hearing what you say but then I read on your blog, you say, you call the President an Indonesian Muslim turned welfare thug and a racist in chief.”

Williams shrugs and responds, “Yeah, that’s the way he’s behaving.” An incredulous Cooper asks Williams if he really believes Obama is an Indonesian Muslim and a welfare thug. The tea party leader digs the hole a little deeper: “He’s certainly acting like it. Until he embraces the whole country what else can I conclude.”


what proof do you have?

Ummm, lol, the tax revenue records during the Bush years was greatly due to SALES taxes, and corporate taxes, not INCOME taxes.

Meaning you get to SPEND more of your money. Meaning the places you spend your money at have to pay more in corporate taxes....

Get it?



LMAO are you for real? What do you think happens when corporates have to pay more tax? The pass these costs on to the consumer. Your 'more money' is an illusion. Get it?

Give them hell bud, I understand your frustration. You just have to understand what you are up against and it is easier to take. I'm an artist, an inventor with two new US patents for robotic painting tools I use in my art. Some of us are born to do such things, the mind just works in a way that starts breaking down whatever it encounters to attempt to understand it. Natural born engineers, scientist, artists, writers, etc, do it because we are born to do it. We have the right type of analytical brains and are born into environments that allows us to express and nurture such abilities. Others, not so. Now remember the Bell Curve in all things you assess like this issue. You know there are people out there who couldn't figure out how to use a wrench, they cannot draw beyond stick figures, or have trouble figuring out how to email. We have no choice but to live with those on the other end of the bell curve and our best hope is that we bend that curve to create a more high end educated society to diminish this problem. That is not happening, their trying to bring teaching the bible into the schools down here in Texas now. So, after the frustration of seeing the politics of the last year, and a heart attack a few months back, I've decided to simply not worry about it, smile at the stupidity and cruse on down the road. All you can really do is vote for intelligence and enlightened government when the opportunity comes.

They only pass it on to the consumers because they will not accept a shorter profit margin. It is up to the consumers to refuse to buy products that they deem to be too high priced.
