    Not excited personally. Since not many seem to care about the middle class – my family and I intentionally stopped going to movies, buying expensive purses and other things years ago just to boycott the rich taking ALL the profits and giving NOTHING to the country in return. If they won't hire – let them expire. Say what you want – but if we ALL start treating them as they are "humans" not "gods" their profits would go down and then they would realize their "glory days" of milking the system are OVER. Hopefully, they would get the message and start using those Bush tax cuts to actually hire instead of shipping our jobs overseas. People are tired of sacrificing and trying to make ends meet when the top 2% keep getting all the breaks. I say BOYCOTT these selfish people and let them expire!

    Hey I am not with these repugs ideologies of sitting back a d funneling money to corporations, a d hope that they feel sorry for us and give us a job instead of china. I've never been a person to sit back and watch as the world past us by. It's time for the president to use the American people as a weapon, to get past the repugs blockade on our crumbling homeland. It's time for the biggest modernization event this world have ever seen. High ways under the great lakes, new bridges and airports that makes visitors have a Aaahhh look in their faces, competition and innovations of star ships who will hunt for new energy a d precious stones on distant planets and rocks. It's time we get out of our dormant position and explode on a universal quest. I want to see congress folks taking plans to their constituencies and showing them their modernization gimmicks, let's put uneducated, educated, white, black, colored, let get people proud of America again, let us have the glass pavement which every country use to think we had, come on America let's get our representatives to look about our home
    land for a change.
