President Addresses Congress

by David Friday, September 9, 2011 3:25 AM

Yesterday, Sept 8, 2011, President Obama addressed Congress and explained his new bill that he is sending before Congress called the “The American Jobs Act”.

Interesting speech, but then again President Obama is renowned for his great speeches, how he can turn heads, make people listen, get people to believe, but actually deliver nothing.

I am a regular American man who is tired of the politics that go on in Washington, everyone is out to either make a name for themselves, get money from lobbyists', or whatever it is they do except doing the job they were hired to do.  Yes hired, WE hired you, remember us, the people that voted you into office.  We interviewed you, you told us what we wanted to hear, how you would change things, make things better, but you lied to us.

Anyway, back to the Presidents speech.  It was interesting, he had some good ideas, but as always failed to explain how he was going to pay for it.  Something I find very interesting about this President is how he is always doing whatever he can to push legislature down our throats for “our own good”, but always failing to explain how the hell he’s going to pay for it.

Christ, we are in debt past our proverbial eyeballs, the United States credit rating has been reduced, we’re in the depression/recession that is damn near as bad as the great depression, but you just keep bloody spending money.  I know it’s printed on paper, but Holy Crikes Batman, you can’t just keep printing money and think that will solve it.

Lowering taxes, offering incentives to companies for hiring people out of work, that is all great-n-dandy, but it isn’t going to solve the problem.  The problem is companies aren’t hiring, in fact they are cutting back.  They ship jobs overseas because it’s cheaper, and they reduce their workforce here but are still able to make a return on their investment and make as much, if not more, money then before.

All in all, what the President outlined was interesting, will it actually do any good, I hope so but I sincerely doubt it.  Under the cover’s you could tell it was politics' as usual. As of yet, the GOP hasn’t really responded, but they better be damned careful when they do, and watch what they say, because the American people are fed up, and rightly so.

It will be interesting to see how this play’s out, and to see the outcome.  The elections next year are going to be driven by what happens, but in the end politics' will win out and unfortunately, we will lose.

Our jobs going abroad

by David Tuesday, August 23, 2011 11:27 AM

Could someone, ANYONE, please explain to me how companies in the United States can willfully fire people then send those jobs over seas to India and be able to sleep at night?

Millions of people are out of work, good hard working talented people who would take almost any job they can find to just have one, and companies in this country just send work to India and elsewhere because they can get help for 25 cents on the dollar.

Congress and the President don’t know what to do to help the country, well let me think, hmmm, maybe STOP shipping job’s over sea’s when you have perfectly talented people here willing and wanting to work!

I love this country, I really do, but each day I love it a little less. 

It’s so damn sad.

Corporate Boom Town

by David Friday, July 22, 2011 10:07 AM

Strong second quarter earnings for most of America’s top corporations.

Unemployment still high.

Corporations still laying off and not hiring.

Sometimes it ain’t worth getting out of bed.

Thanks Congress

by David Saturday, December 4, 2010 6:08 AM

2010, the Republicans took back control of the Senate because of the way the Democrats crammed the healthcare bill and other things down the throats of Americans, told us what we needed, refused to listen to us, and did what they wanted.  In the end, putting this country in deeper debt then ever before.

The republicans took back control of the Senate because the American people had enough, and the republicans said we will work for you, we will fix this and make it right.

So what have they done so far?  Well at this point they have let the unemployment benefits package extension end instead of renewing it, and now they have gone and blocked the extension of tax breaks put in place during the Busch era because the Democrats don’t want to extend the tax breaks to those making over $1 million per year.

Wow, I just want to say Thank you My Republican for working for me the little guy in America and setting an whole new record in fucking me over.  Thank fully I have a job, but I know many that do not, and some of those people lost their unemployment benefits Tuesday, and now face losing their homes and God knows what else.  The Republicans want to play political games already.  The middle class is getting screwed, and they are holding a shotgun to our heads and telling the Democrats, do what we want or we let them die.

It’s time for things to change, it’s time for all of Congress to be fired and people put in that will work for the American people and not themselves.

Sometimes Revolution can be a good thing.

Well, maybe it’s time.
