Look at this story of a great American. He is a first generation immigrant that chose hard work over free stuff. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yNHywGefNnQ&feature=plcp

Good post.

All the free loaders would have revolted Greece style if we had opted for austerity. It was never an option though. Even Republicans were for a stimulus package. Their package was heavily focused on infrastructure and lowering taxes for struggling families. Obama's package was full of pork and programs that did not create jobs like funds for green energy projects Here is a draft of the Republican optionhttp://www.cbsnews.com/htdocs/pdf/RealStimulus.pdf

The election clearly shows that Americans want the country to be like France, a socialist republic. Problem is we're gonna end up more like Greece. Enjoy.

That reminds me of Chris Rock way back in the day when OJ was acquitted, he kept saying "where's my OJ prize?".

Maybe there's something wrong with me but I wish the government would stop promising and get the fck out of these matters.



I wonder when a politician will say he will end grants to college kids and get the government out of student loans all together, remove taxholes that subsidize poeple's lifestyles (ie the mortgage interest deduction), cut the army down and get out of countries America shouldn't be in. Instead each group panders to their group and promises things we simply can not afford.

Where's the white text?

The election clearly showed that the American voting public sees that the Republican model of economics championed by Grover Norquist has been PROVEN to be an utter failure. Deregulation and tax cuts for the top 2% of the population nearly dragged us into another great depression. Those institutions simply and clearly do not work. It's not arguable at this point, we saw the experiment play out before our eyes, and it failed. It's time for the Republicans to come to terms with this and get out of the way of progress. No more roadblocks, hopefully they will be reasonable during tomorrow mornings meetings.

Rasheed, I remember you being a Ron Paul activist a few years ago. If this is correct, how does one go from a Ron Paul supporter to a Barack Obamaa supporter? Their ideologies are night and day.

great question


I see this as two tracks...

I still like Ron Paul because he has integrity (thats the biggest key with me when it comes to selecting politicians) and he would get us outside of a monetary system that I hate.. We get outside of the FED, and we could give all that money back to the people. You cant just cut everything off and be draconian, (and Paul acknowledges this) but we could be a better nation if we work together and get off the Keynesian monetary system.

But the problem is that the GOP froze Ron Paul out because they know he isnt bullsh*ttin. They love handouts more anyone else in the country, thats why they project onto to poor and middle class people.

If we are trapped in Keynesian economics? Then I have to side with the people who would regulate it, because greed is the biggest problem here.. Greed in a system that will cripple everyone but the people who have the money to buy the politicians...Thats what we'd have.

All we did was buy ourselves some more time to get ourselves in order as a country..

Obama isnt great.. But Mitt Romney and the GOP are crazy..

PPl who wanted Romney to win should just hand their tax money to the Rich, that would make them happy. But you know they won't.

Here's some text for you: Let's see if we can tax ourselves out of this. That should work. More governmental control of everything is always a great idea.

Be careful what you ask for
