2011 is all about making the tough decisions and executing a plan to grow the economy and create jobs. This is a critical year with a new congress in place and a tough situation to address. Let's see some decisions that actually work and make an impact outside of Washington DC. Republicans brought us a plan and we gave them a mandate on it. Democrats need to show now that they can govern in a bipartisan environment. It's time to get this done.
My resolution is to call people on the carpet for making promises or political slogans that sound good but they never really follow through on. basically, for the republicans to actually put up or shut up. they talk about fiscal responsibility, but they were asleep for most of the decade and drove up a huge portion of our debt. they come at us with pamphlets long on promises but short on details. and guys like Orlando Patriot and Four and the Door buy it hook line and sinker like little misguided children. finally, hold the baby boomers actually accountable for something in their lives. that's the resolution.
1) “U.S companies are hiring, just overseas”
2) “Deadly Afghan year takes toll on 101st Airborne”
We have to focus on these two issues, these are not good news
But our Politician from state to DC change 14th amendment, find a real birth certificate , debate repeal health care then they can waste time and divert us from real issues
Obama need to stop making the repugs have their way, they've allowed the corporations to do what they please and got rich, yet they refuse to share their bounty, by reinvesting back into the economy, they know that without demand money mainstreet won't sustain their businesses plus make a profit. So they are gearing up to invest where the money at, and that's over seas. Mainstreet got to compete with over seas interesses for jobs, and they've been loosing that fight for years now, yet the media seems to turn a blind eye to this situation. The repugs idea of empowering big corporations, are sucking all the money out of the economy, the cycle of the capitalistic system have been broken, because when money goes up to the supply, it is not cycling back around in the form of jobs because the rich is either hoarding the money on the sidelines or they are taking their business over seas depleting our money out of the economy, and taking the middle class jobs abroad depleting our middle class. The middle class is the only people that are supporting our housing sales, vehicles and all the high end items.

1) “U.S companies are hiring, just overseas”
Small businesses hire Americans in America. This is where we will find our quickest path to recovery.
Pennsylvania Super Patriot Deluxe....has got it correct. Vacuous neo-sheep like Four and the Door are the ones who voted in the very party that repeatedly FAILED in just about every policy arena over the last decade and casued this mess. After being voted out of power, they have been long on deflection, obstruction, and empty political rhetoric, but quite short on anything approaching political accountability and learning from their mistakes. Anybody who actually thinks that "Republicans brought us a plan" in the 2010 election needs to have their heads checked; where's the PLAN? Furthermore, [D]s have an ACTUAL successful track record of governing in a bi-partisan environment; [R]s just have more empty rhetoric to feed their deluded lemmings. Purposeful ignornace and repeated, unquestioning fealty to rightwing fairytales and failure is the very definition of insanity.
And these neo-[R]s have the unmitigated gall to label themselves as "patriots"? This is what passes for "conservative" today?!! The true conservatives in the old [R] party must be absolutely apoplectic...
My wish for Obozo is that he realize he is clueless. Enough of the endless spin, attacks and class warfare. It isn't that he hasn't given enough speeches, given enough interviews (to people who won't ask hard questions), gone on enough TV shows, attended enough campaign fund raisers and campaigned for enough people that ultimately LOSE. The majority of American people ARE hearing what you are selling and they just don't buy it. When you lose 66 seats in the Huse and the Republicans lose 3, the message should be VERY CLEAR to anyone actually listening.
I want the Congress to focus on CUTS in the government and spending. I want a plan to balance the budget in 5 years. I want a reduction of entitlements and a repeal of Obozocare. I want EVERYBODY paying taxes, not a minority of Americans. I want Congress to STOP ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION and GUARD THE SOUTHERN BORDER. I want illegals DEPORTED.
To stop the public lying by so many republicans. I can't believe I use to be one. I want them to work together for a change without the bargaining. Everyone knows that jobs are growing overseas. Next time the vote comes up in the congress to close the "loop hole" that awards this behavior I would love to see it pass...not fail because every republican voted against it. Re write the tax code to be fair and equitable. Invest in our infrastructure. Tax cuts only cut this service. I don't mind taxes going up to support us where private business really lacks.
How about getting serious and cut spending, balance a budget for a change? And thank you NYS for my 44% property tax increase, I'll be living on the street soon.
Jobs please. I personally, am sick of social issues on both sides and think we should worry about the economy before anything else in 2011
Please resolve not to run in 2012 so that we can get out from under your socialist policies and get back to being the democracy we were before you took office.
I resolve to not post on Sarah Palin articles. If people don't respond to such things, maybe CNN will stop running them.
I resolve to respond to political lies with the truth and by calling out the liars, be they democrat or republican, as often as possible.
I resolve to not drink anyone's kool-aid. Their scotch, maybe, but not the kool-aid.
