Guns, Freedom, Money & Change

Post by Spark »

Some change ??????????? But then I didn't vote for him, but still stuck with what I got. Do you have any concept of what kind of damage this President can and will do to us over the next 3 1/2 years ?????

The bail out money wasn't for us slobs the tax payers or jobs, it was for big banks and investment company's, the sleaze bags of the earth who gave out loans to folks that shouldn't have gotten them. It was for greedy Detroit and the horrible defect prone cars and trucks that they produce and the fat unions that took the companies to their knees.

The banks we bailed out are still paying their chief executives big bonuses and flip us the Brooklyn Salute while doing it. My God 3 1/2 more years of this.......

Responding to this is difficult, so many directions that one could go - so I pick humor:

George Bush, Queen Elizabeth, and Vladimir Putin all die and go to hell. While there, they spy a red phone and ask what the phone is for. The devil tells them it is for calling back to Earth. Putin asks to call Russia and talks for 5 minutes. When he was finished the devil informs him that the cost is a million dollars, so Putin writes him a check.

Next Queen Elizabeth calls England and talks for 30 minutes. When she was finished the devil informs her that cost is 6 million dollars, so Queen Elizabeth writes him a check.

Finally George Bush gets his turn and talks for 4 hours. When he was finished the devil informed him that there would be no charge for the call and feel free to call the USA anytime.

When Putin hears this he goes ballistic and asks the devil why Bush got to call the USA free. The devil replied, "Since Obama became president of the USA, the country has gone to hell, so naturally it's a local call."

I'm optimistic about this opportunity:

Eligibility issue goes 'mainstream'
Exclusive: Joseph Farah emphatically declares,'Day of reckoning coming for President Obama'

After all The Pres can only be a part of the issue, there's also the Media...

Ya know, you bring up a good point.

Although our politicians, etc. make glutious maximi out of themselves, the media is not innocent itself. The saddest thing is that so many Americans seem to believe that the US media is all out for our benefit. The truth is that the US media operates for their, the US medias', benefit and not the average american citizens. The sooner people start to recognize this, the better. The US media could not care less how it affects the average american citizen, all that matters to them is the dollar sign.

Someday, people will start to realize this...problem is, it is going to take a dramatic sequence to get people to realize this.

Some of us already do. The media died a long, long time ago, all that's left is a bunch of big paychecks, excuses for new, fancy cameras, and minimal education. Nobody bothers to actually research anymore, there is no doublechecking of facts, and even the first year college intern doing basic spell-checking is optional. Case in point, Geraldo's live coverage of the current war. Absoulte travesty. Everybody that deserves the name "journalist" died years ago, or gave up when their writing wasn't sensational enough for Rupert's juggernaut.
