But but but "We are not Greece or Portugal says Obama"...famous last words by the man who has less leadership and financial experience than a 7 year old kid running a lemonade stand!

The worst part is that, while Obama has turned out to be a joke, the joke is on us.

His worst sin is his embrace of the bankster criminal gangs. Listen to Rickards. Obama has continued this racket.

We've been at war with Oceania since 12/7/1941. And, as Cheney said, "This war (with Muslims) will not end in our lifetimes." And Halliburton immediately, and gleefully, decamped to Iraq. And Cheney actualy said, earlier, "Reagan proved deficits don't matter."

Republic party = pro slavery, pro child labor.  Sorry.  This website's underwear is showing.  Tyler never ever complains about the past 30-40 years of gubmint/conservative screw ups.  Heaven forbid the Tyler's pet party get a diss.  Obviously, this all Barry's fault.  Yeah, Barry sucks, but when you blame him without calling out the republics, then I'm saying to you Tyler, fuck you.

So please go back to your conservatard utopia where we can all live in the blissful land of Somalia.  Heaven forbid that we have mean words spoken of our Republic party/fascist overlords.

I came back to perhaps edit my comment for being unduly harsh.  But after consideration, no.  One has to be incredibly moronic to be a Republic party supporter these days.  They are without question even more resistant to intelligence than the moronic Dems.

We need more and bigger government, more regulations on business, more stimulus, more people asking for handouts, more monitary easing, more cash for clunkers, free healthcare for everyone, more sub-prime lending, more people on medicare, welfare and social security, more wars, a higher debt ceiling, more harvard and yale professors in government, more imports from China, more outsourcing of jobs to India, more high speed train projects, nationalizing of all private industry, especially oil, like Venezuela. Then this country will be on the right track.

What Dick-Sucking 0bama said in 2008:

Obama told reporters he would ban pork-barrel spending projects known as earmarks from his proposal to stimulate the economy. He also vowed to make the difficult choices necessary to curb runaway deficits and debt.

Dick-Sucking 0bama also voted against raising the debt ceiling in 2006

Deficits do matter. But I do not get why you got junked. Unless it was completly political.

Dick Fuck Cheney did say, Deficits "Do No Matter". Do not blame the messanger. Blame Cheney.

I guess Deficits matter when they benefit the ones who earned their Social Security and need it.

But not when the elite, who got paid for the war, enjoyed the money and profits made from it.

Things that make me go Hmmmmm.

Deficits do not matter, as long as they are deficits small enough to pay back.

Let's stop chunkng rocks, and taking things of of context and time periods.

When you have a 5% UE rate, and a healthy vibrant economy,lots of revenue streams,then they do not make a crap.

When you have a 14.3 Trillion deficit, 22% UE Rate,and nearly no revenues, it do make a huge difference.

Actually 7 year olds get a bad name when you make comparisons like this.


It would be more proper to say a 7 year old running a lemonade stand thus generating at least one new job and what Obama has done to the economy and employment are completely different beasts.


The lemonade stand owner probably hasn't figured out how to bankrupt the USA yet.

Yeah, where are all those bible-thumpers who show up to quote scripture.   Obama knoweth not what he does, so he should be forgiven.   If he is all that stupid/smart then how can blame be properly and fairly placed?   If he's so stupid then it's not his fault -- he's just stupid.   If he's all that smart, then it's not his fault -- he has a hidden agenda driven by other in conspiratorial circles.   Facing facts, it's the hot seat that he occupies, and those not smart enough to lay blame where it belongs pick the low hanging fruit of the Presidency.  

Me?  Glad you asked.   It's coming down, folks.   Enjoy the show.   It has been everyone's fault, including mine, for about 50 years +/- 20%.    It's not the sole responsibility of some current occupant of a high elected office.

How so?, for not getting involved?.


Otherwise NO one here is to blame, unless you had a hands on , and the ability to CHANGE things on your OWN.

You had to go along with the system, or move overseas.


I have voted, sent letters,emails, phone calls for 25yrs, and have I done anything to maybe even slow the process down?.


Surely we have...........but, it wasn't enough.

I have done as you, my friend.   But I've not been active in the sense that would make any difference.   All the voting and communication don't mean shit -- never has.   The only thing that will work is revolution, and there just aren't enough of us to form a coalition... yet.   Things will have to get worse before that can happen.    Things just aren't bad enough.   I have done much of what I can as an individual.   The chore is going to have to migrate to either an organized effort, or an unorganized mob.    We can have orderly change?   Nah.

those who voted for him and expected him to solve all their problems because they "invested" a few hours of their life going to vote.

That don't make him the anti-christ.

And what do you expect? He had to fund his campaign with corporate funds. Do you think that was for free?
