    Please do not misunderstand my statement. Hubby and I changed our lives (separately) while Obama was still in his short pants. And during the year that Obama came to office, we lost a lot of our investments. So YES! for once I will agree with you -- WE WILL NOT LET THIS REPEAT ITSELF IN OUR LIVES AGAIN!! because my husband and I WILL vote your Obama out of office. Do I make my myself clear now???

    I lost my job as a trimmer in the furniture industry March 26, 2009. I decided to go to college as the furniture jobs have seen wages steadily drop over the last few decades and I was ready to get out. I signed up for my unemployment and drew it for two months before classes started. The unemployment office told me that I could keep on drawing my unemployment insurance as long as I put in two applications each week and when I was offered a job I had better drop out of college and take the job. If I didn't I would be charged with Felony Insurance Fraud.

    Now, since I'm no longer drawing unemployment compensation I am not included in the unemployment statistics. I am no longer considered to be unemployed as far as the government is concerned.

    I agree that our government has lied and is still lying about how bad the economy really is.

    You are correct. There are 545 people that are directly responsible for our money problem. These 545 people can also fix our money problem. We the voters have allowed these 545 people to create this mess by continually re-electing them. We the voters can also fix this mess by voting new people into this group of 545 people. These are the 545 people that have the constitutional authority to allocate funds. I know some of you might be getting tired of me saying this. I won't have to keep repeating myself if or educators were doing there job.

    Damn! Those were the good old days,B.O. (Before Obama)! I much prefer those days to the last two and one half years under the "Annointed One." Bush may not have been the best president we have ever had but he was brilliant in comparison to what we now have. There were a couple of events that contributed to Bush's presidency and caused some consternation among us all, i.e., 9/11, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. but we don't want to confuse the issue there, huh? And what about all of the spending Obama has done? Hasn't that all but failed and left us in worse condition than before? I think Bush's idea of Homeland Security was right for the time but has since morphed into something out of control and mostly clueless in what it is supposed to do. Things still aren't right in this country but I would much prefer the conditions under Bush to those under Obama.

    Obama supporters are still drinking the koolaid and refuse to take their rose colored glasses off. Keep in mind, Obama has no constitutional authority to allocate any funds. All he can do is ask to spend. It is our 545 senators and reps that have the constitutional authority to allocate the funds he has asked for.

    The government is reporting that unemployment is 9.2% but everybody knows they don't count everyone who is unemployed. There are many articles out there disputing the government numbers. Here's a quote from one and their link if you'd care to read the article. This is from June, 2011, the latest figures I could find:

    Raghavan Mayur, president at TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence, follows unemployment data closely. So, when his survey for May revealed that 28% of the 1,000-odd households surveyed reported that at least one member was looking for a full-time job, he was flummoxed.

    “Our numbers are always very accurate, so I was surprised at the discrepancy with the government’s numbers,” says Mayur, whose firm owns the TIPP polling unit, a polling partner for Investors’ Business Daily and Christian Science Monitor. After all, the headline number shows the U.S. unemployment rate today is 9.5%, with a total of 14.6 million jobless people

    And yet out of all your rambling you still did not acknowledge that because of those big three that is why we are where we are! Alot of the spending was already in the works before OBAMA swore in you moron! Look at the facts instead of glen becks distorted reality!

  11. You are right about the Bush spending. However, if you would for a moment take your head out of your anal cavity you would see that this Facist who by the way urinates all over the White House, turbo charged three fold our deficit not to mention what is in store for us when the Obama care kicks in in 2013. By the way...name calling is a tactic the liberals with metal disorders do... I can only assume you are above that tactic.
