So are the college republicans who don't want to waste their beautiful minds in the military because they're in training to be the next Georgie, Dickie or Karl. And their mommies were the ones laughing at funny-boy McHenry's stupid remarks.

The economy has not been in the tank like this since the first Bush was in office and yet this election year Republicans are in a dead heat for the WHite House?
A very unpopular war and 81% of the people know we are on the wrong track but
Republicans arfe in a dead heat?
I don't get it. The polls are telling us that most people don't care that we're going
in the wrong direction and they will vote Republican anyway.

Democrats take over in 2007 and they raised the minimum wage. I said at the time that it would cost jobs, especially in the small business sector.

Of course, the media and the Dems blame Bush, but we all know better.

"but we all know better"

Oh grand Pubah of all things financial, we humbly bow at your feet of knowledge for you to explain how raising the minimum wage caused all of this to happen... and we need links, pie charts and some cool coloured squiggly lines over some bars.

I'd love to see some current numbers on how many Americans have been forced to work their full-time job PLUS a part-time job in order to keep afloat.

I'd bet it's a lot.
10:54 AM on 04/04/2008
You'd bet it's a lot?

Later, the 57-year old Mornin tells Bush that she works three jobs, which the president deems "uniquely American" and "fantastic." He asks her if she gets any sleep.

But it is so why dispute it? Take responsibility for your heroes actions for once. The economy is a big mess. The neo-cons enginnered it. You wanted it you got it. Embrace. Smell the Failure coming off the Monkey you voted for. You support a bunch of lying white collared Mafia. Don't hide from it. Be proud!

The Democrats like the Republicans are just another corporate party. Check out the front page of the Wall Street Journal yesterday.

The article is titled: Business Donors Bypass McCain, Democrats Rake In Cash From Industry by Brody Mullins. Mullins reports that both Obama and Clinton have been cleaning McCain's clock "among business interests that give mainly to Republicans." Of seven major industries that have been the most reliable Republican resources, McCain has raised $13.1 million through February, compared with $22.5 million for Obama and $27.1 million for Clinton, the Journal reported.

If the Democrats were the party of the people, if they were truly going to make the corporations serve the American people, would the corporate executives be dumping millions into their campaigns?

They just want to be on the side that will win. It's what you do after your elected that matters. Corporate execs will dump milions into any coffer that's in power. So the answer is yes they will dump regardless.

Vote for Obama. He wants to change the crony culture.
11:23 AM on 04/04/2008
Why would Obama accept the money in the first place? No need to.
11:03 AM on 04/04/2008
Yes, HaveaBud.......I don't like that beer, bud (pun intended). It may provide millions in profits for Cindy McCain....the second wife he married after dumping the first wife who waited for him whilst in the Hanoi Hilton.

The "Democrats" who take from these Corporate oligarchs are DLC and DINO types. They vote with their kissing cousins, the neocon Corporate Republican Neocon shills predictably on all votes that feed the wealthy at the tax trough of the poor who get nothing for health care, education of their children, or help for seniors in need.

Obama Democrats - regardless of their place on the political spectrum - believe that an involved citizenry is necessary for control of a democracy or a representative republic....or the Corporate fat cats and their lobbyists will set the agenda, write the laws, and elect their own shills.

So disingenuous Clintonistas.....do not lump our Obama campaign with the Neocons and DLC Corporate shills of Clinton and McCain.
11:25 AM on 04/04/2008
Again why would Obama accept the money in the first place? Would not rejecting it send a far more positve message.

Wow we are almost getting down to the clinton average. The reason people are negative on the economy is because everyone is screaming doom and gloom. Its a down turn. It happens. Don't freak out.
10:50 AM on 04/04/2008
I agree. It will pass and good times will return. In the meantime, I will worry as much as I can so as not to be perceived as unconcerned with my fellow americans.

I'm more concerned about the trend than the absolute numbers.

Sure, we're cruising down the interstate at 70 mph but the oil pressure needle is dropping fast and there are strange noises coming from under the hood.

Let's be clear. When the government is speaking of the economy, its only concern is with the health of big business. That's why they continue to suggest we're not actually in a recession; however, America's other economy, that of middle income America, knows and feels what the government is unwilling to acknowledge. That congress would actually listen to oil execs say with straight faces that their pornographic profits have not risen as fast as the profits of other segments of big business is incomprehensible. You've got to love those guys whose profits are the largest in history still reaping the rewards of tax breaks while cutting back on production to tighten the supply and drive profits up even more.

I have gathered from some comments on here that if a person has a job and is doing well during an economic downturn that that person is selfish and the way to not be selfish is to worry more about those who are struggling. Is that right?
10:41 AM on 04/04/2008
That is correct. Worrying is a sign of superior morality. If you march around with a sign you get a couple extra karma points in addition.
10:47 AM on 04/04/2008
Dems used to get all wet when Bill Clinton said "I feel your pain".

That was back when the Clintons could do no wrong.

Now that they know how they were played by the Clintons, I wonder if Dems are reassessing their convictions of the last fifteen years.

Huh?

Not all people with jobs (say 95%) and doing "well" (say down to 70%) in a downturn are of like mind or political disposition.

Of THAT set (the 70%), those that are of one political inclination want the government to DO something, as opposed to wring hands.

And of THAT subset, a good number of us saw it coming and were saying so all along.

Feh.
