“Amen! Is there any chance for my family to purchase another home? Everything we had was in our 1st and only home but we have 4 children now. We will never have the money to purchase another home again. We also have a child with autism and things are very different now than it was before our children.”
“Before another poor and uneducated person goes to prison for pot or drugs etc. the Bush administration should have a full and complete investigation by an independent body. The investigation should NOT be conducted by any member of congress or the senate as they had their chance and blew it. The coruption that has been allowed to bring down our country should be aggressivey investigated and all members of congress and the Bush administration should be punished so that the country will know what happened and there will no longer be any questions.”
“Very well-written article. The problem with the article is that we have been in a trade-war for some time and places like China refuses equal trading with America.
When 4-year-old children in other countries compete against adults in America for jobs, the trade war has already begun.
To say; if we only buy American (now) will begin a trade war is too much, too little, too late. Please go back and update your data. Rewrite the article to inform readers to fit the issues of today and not from years ago.”

“At a time when my school district is cutting and eliminating everywhere possible this story seems unlikely. What will our society do when the economy normalizes? We will have uneducated citizens and uneducated citizens makes for an unhealthy society.”
“I'm not going to TRUST another politician again. I would rather stay involved and watch them to ensure they do what they promised and were elected to do.
TRUSTING politicians got us into the mess our country is currently in.
At this point of history citizens must participate. The future depends on it.”

“Are you saying we TRUSTED Bush and his cronies? I didn't in 2000 nor 2004 and I certainly don't now. I do trust Obama (as much as I can trust any politician) It is time to stop second guessing, armchair quarterbacking and complaining about his choices He's not a hasty man and he is making thoughtful choices based on what he thinks is best for the country and who will be able to get something done post haste. After watching the train wreck of the last 8 years, I am hopeful and excited that Obama is already moving to make changes and to make a difference. We seem to think that because we voted for him, we should be able to control and approve his every decision and move now. Our control was in getting him elected. Sure, we have to keep our eyes and ears open and speak out if we see another train wreck coming.. But, we have to remember that this country isn't just a right country, a left country, a blue state or red state country. Not everybody is going to be happy with any decision all the time. I wouldn't begin to know how to do his job nor would I want to. None of us know what is going to happen. It is all opinion and speculation. It's a thankless job. He told us how he was going to govern....now let's get off our high horses and let him do it!”
