  • So Grandmarg and the Anons........The RECORD HIGH deficit is OK with you? There is no way t predict the future?? SERIOUSLY? There is a way to make an educated guess. What happens in YOUR house when you spend 3 or 4 times the amount of money you have coming in?? Well in grown up land in the big people world China is going to OWN us and thats not a joke or DRAMA.........its the honest TRUTH. But hey....if you are so caught up in the ideology of your "side" that you cant see the writing on the wall you just go ahead and play in the sand.

  • Obama DOES want to collapse the economy AND the general living of Americans. He wants us all dependent on the government. He is not concerned with TODAY (as obvious by his current actions as POTUS, which is NOTHING), he is concerned about his future role as an international power player. He is setting himself up with good relationships for a global dominance. He does not, nor is he concerned with, the petty things of today -- like creating jobs or helping us financially.

    He has most of the American public fooled like he actually cares about us - thank you media. I wonder how many people are still hoping for the change.

  • I for one am glad that some people are paying attention to this stuff, and at leas TRYING to show people what is happening to our country. If we don't stand up and try to stop some of this BS and change this and slow this down, there will be nothing left for our children and grandchildren except being owned by another country. I will die before I just sit back and say, well, there was nothing I could do about it. America is a free country, but freedom IS NOT FREE! We must keep vigilant, and stay on top of things and keep our reps in DC accountable for what they do, or we will not keep our freedom. What are you anons going to say then? I bet there will be some drama then! But it will be too late. Better start brushing up on your Mandarin, and I'm not talking about the oranges!

  • I find it astonishing that people are okay with this elephantine deficit.  It's Obama's baby, he is the one growing it.
