"[W]hen Congress gets back from recess, I will urge them to immediately take some steps -- bipartisan, common-sense steps -- that will make a difference; that will create a climate where businesses can hire, where folks have more money in their pockets to spend, where people who are out of work can find good jobs," said Obama. "Both parties share power in Washington, and both parties need to take responsibility for improving this economy. It's not a Democratic responsibility or a Republican responsibility; it is our collective responsibility as Americans."
That was part of O's speech today while he put his pen to the tea party powered debt ceiling bill that will have A-merry-ca on her knees within a few years.--- If she isn't there already. The Dow dropped over 200 points today, and we are under that 12,000.00 mark again. It's time to check your 401k's people. If you are working in hopes of collecting a pension one day keep your fingers crossed. It just might not be there.
Yes O, people need jobs, but big business is not hiring because they are not confident that their companies will be able to prosper in this environment. (Or so they say.) Who is going to spend money with these businesses if people don't have jobs? Oh my, what a Catch 22 situation we have here in A-merry-ca.
No wonder we A-merry-cans feel so bad about our future. "It's those evil Chinese." No it's not. It's those evil A-merry-can corporations shipping jobs oversees and paying slave labor wages to foreign workers. A-merry-can factories are shutting down in record numbers because the fat cats who run these corporations can afford to do that.
Meanwhile, the really rich folks here in A-merry-ca just keep getting richer. The top 1% of folks with loot here in A-merry-ca control about 40% of the wealth. They used to control about 10%, but thanks to their new found influence and power in Washington that has changed. They would also like to thank you dopes who will never have anything even close to the amount of wealth that they have for fighting so hard on their behalf and against your own best interest. (Please watch this wonderful little video and you will learn what I have been trying to tell you in about 2 minutes. It's side- bar worthy.) It always helps to have a lot of stupid people in your corner.
"Simply put, it will take a balanced approach, shared sacrifice, and a willingness to make unpopular choices on all our parts,"... "That means spending less on domestic programs," the president explained. "It means spending less on defense programs. ... And it means taking on the tax code, and cutting out certain tax breaks and deductions for the wealthiest Americans."
Yeah right! O, I think there is a Mr. Koch on line one for you. He says that you don't have to take his call. Your black ass will be gone soon and he will put someone on Pennsylvania Avenue who will.
