The spending continues, the Republicans will be blamed, and the consumers will
luv Obama.The cycle will continue until there's nothing left,
and the entitlement plug is pulled. Riots in the streets will bring this once
great nation down to its knees.Pray that I'm wrong. I'd
rather be a fool then see my country fall.
All day today I could not get it off of my mind about just how we are ever going
to get out of this horrible situation that we are in. I am angry beyond who
knows what. My husband and I have been one of those who have been hit hard with
over the last three years. So to you Tolstoy get a clue there are people out
there hurting not because they are lazy but because of the things that have
happened to the economy. YOUR PRESIDENT now owns this mess no longer Bush. He
did nothing to help out over the last four year except go out and spend our
money that we work hard so that him and his family can have all of those
vacations and flying whereever they want to go. He acts more like a movie star
than the President of this great Country of ours. He has a chance now to prove
to this Country that he really does want what is best for us. My guess though is
he is going to do what he wants to do for himself and not for what is best for
@country mom...thank u for caring and you thoughtful concerns about
this country... Tolstoy is not living in the same reality... it is one thing to
support Obama, but it is another thing to be ignorant to the severity of 16
trillion in debt...
@country mom so in other words you are feeding your children with the same
lies about the world around them and the people in it that you post on these
threads. YOu are teaching them the world is evil and out to get them. Thanks but
I prefer to feel my child's head with the reality that she will have to go
to school and work hard just like I do and just like her grandparents did and
their parents before them. I talk to her about the With the reality that while
we are not a prefect society and that people are not perfect that vast majority
of people are just good honest hard working people trying to get by just like we
do and that though the wheels turn slowly and there are those that like
"country mom" that want o vilify anyone not like them we are slowly
moving towards a better world and we must not allow nay sayers to drag us down.
Instead of telling my children as they graduate, someday you will be rich, I am
telling them someday you will find a job. That sums up this current economy. The little children know, their parents are not making much, they are the ones
living in one pair of shoes, wearing holey jeans, eating mac and cheese and
romen noodles. Going home to empty homes while Mom and Dad are doing whatever
they can to make ends meet. They also see their classmates, that they know
neither parent works, getting ipads.
@country mom their future will be the same as ours was when we where kids
and people where using the same fear mongering rhetoric about crushing debt
hurting our children's future you are using know. OUr country is not in a
crisis and we will have as bright a future as we decide to have. Now do you want
o offer some common sense solutions to move our country towards that future or
stay stuck in the same old rhetoric our grandparents used?
Tolstoy. It is your turn to explain to the children how they will pay off the
massive debt. How will they find jobs? How will they be able to find freedom to
pursue their dreams? I dealt with a group of children who were trying to make
sense of why they will be left with so much debt that they will never see the
end. Give them an answer! And every President aquires debt is not an answer!
Tell them what their future will be like. Try to make it sound happy and free to
dream and be rich, or powerful, or famous. You know like little children dream.
no fit in SG, you have the gaul to talk about negative posts?
Well gosh, sounds like bipartisanship and compromise are right on the
horizon.Just finished reading these wonderful, positive posts!Thanks, guys!
its sad to see the far right posters continues to refuse to learn from their
past mistakes. rhetoric lost you this election and the election in 2008 it is
not magically going to help you or our country now.
if you are white, straight, hard working and care about your own well being then
u are at least one of the following: a bigot, a racist, and not doing your fair
To Barack Hussein Obama:• You cannot bring about prosperity by
discouraging thrift.• You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening
the strong.• You cannot help little men by tearing down big men.• You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.• You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.• You
cannot establish sound security on borrowed money.• You cannot
further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.• You cannot
keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn.• You cannot
build character and courage by destroying men's initiative and
independence.• You cannot help men permanently by doing for them
what they can and should do for themselves. William J.H. Boetcker
"You made your voice heard," Obama said in his acceptance speech,
signaling that he believes the bulk of the country is behind his policies.The bulk of the country?? If the truth were known, the bulk of his
voting block didn't know Iowa from Idaho, let alone any of his
"policies". You mean his policies of "destroy Mitt
Romney"??? Or does he mean his policies of the last four years which have
all but destroyed the American economy??You think things are bad now
- just wait for the next four years. We have been snookered.
BSU Bronco: "Never" is quite a strong word, one my kids would use!
It's pretty hard to beat Santa Claus. Socialism is now alive and well in
America.Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of
ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of
misery.Winston Churchill Obama ran on Nothing - and won. Says
a lot about the people in this country. We had a chance to elect a great
President, and blew it. This country is set back 50 years - or more.
Yea, now Obama can't blame the previous president (unless he blames
himself). He got "overs" (as in when children play a game, mess up, and
then say, "I get overs"). NOW, Mr Obama HAS to deliver. He's got
the bulk of a decade, like "W" & Clinton before him. He can't
continue to blame others. He's got to deliver results. And that is a far
tougher task.All those speeches at the DNC by him and Clinton.
Let's see if he can deliver!?!Of course, it is curious to me to
see those who bought his line. That he needs to "finish" the job. Well,
I'm afraid, once he's done, so will this nation be done! But, how do
those who voted for him suppose they'll get something different when
they've elected the same man? How is he going to improve things? His
current course isn't working. More Americans die now by suicide than by
auto accidents. That statistic alone is extremely telling.Hope? No,
rather discouraging and damaging despair.Hey, we're still in an
economic depression. In the Great Depression, things got better, then worse
again, over and over.
Here's to walking in high cotton...high taxes, high unemployment, and high
Four more years of High unemployment, record debt, 8 dollar a gollon gas and
massive incresing energy prices. Way to vote America!! The Nation as we know it
will never be the same.
he's off to vegas. nothing will be done because he doesn't know how to
