    The countries economy is in the crapper. The people are livid and tired of the propaganda. Wall street can go hang themselves...PLEASE DO! The debt bill is just another spending bill when what we need are spending cuts, tax reform and legislation that will bring jobs back to America that doesn't involve inflating the dollar even more.

  2. The Day of Financial Reckoning is HERE - The Great Democrat Welfare Society Ends

    Its called a vote of NO CONFIDENCE in Obama and the Democrats.... 2012 can't get here fast enough. Until then, the Obama recession will have to be endured.

    And yet, there's STILL a myriad of hypnotized sheep that think Obama is faultless and can do no wrong. We are surely screwed.

    We need the nearly 50% of Americans that pay no taxes to pay their fair share. They need to start contributing to this great nation. We also need to get 50% of the people currently on the government dole OFF. How many people are collecting money for being "anxious" and "depressed"??!! WELCOME TO LIFE! Then adjust the retirement age UP to better suit the reality of 2030-2075 and not 1930-1975.

    Well Wulf, if all of these companies are making such substantial profits it disproves the theory of trickle down economics!

    Okay here goes. Raise taxes on the rich; end corporate welfare and make them pay their taxes; get out of Iraq, Afganistan and Lybia. Then close all the bases we have in Europe and Asia, these people can pay for their own defense and cut the defense budget by half. We don't need a bloated military, we aren't threatened militarily by anyone that requires the gigantic military we have. Are freedoms aren't being threatened like they were in WWII. Cut the crap, these wars are for corporate purposes only. Then, and only then do we start to balance the budget on the backs of the working people of this country
