“The Best Deal is stay away from consumerism; bad for your health your pocket book and if your loved ones don't know you love them without this great deal then maybe you have raised them wrong or you are the back sheep.
Oh a black sheep on Black Friday How appropo!”
“I agree. I remember once I told my doc about an angry moment with my mom. and responded she probably deserved it.
I'm tired of all the civilities we grant to others with.....what happened to manners.......what happened to respect.....”
“I am very suspicious as to why he would be leading in the polls... But it's money.. all about money and who gives the pollesters the most. You forget all the factors that this administration put in place in 7 + years and all that vanishing mola from Iraq... it's now showing up in McCain's account, news outlets, etc. If you read the plan, you will be astonished.”
“I'm afraid you may not understand this correctly. The people most responsible for this debacle are the mortgage lenders (banks mostly) and financial institutions (investment banks) that bundled the mortgages. The bundled mortgages were made into securities and sold them on the stock exchange. (people are responsible and it's a guarantee) the mortgager says I don't have to worry about those anymore because I sold them..so banks make more loans tby either reducing their requirements or out and out lying to the mortgagees.
At least six months, the defaults started due to adjustable rate mortgages. that led to more houses on the market more houses dropped everyone's value... financial institutions that made the bundles didn't care about their investors. .everyone knows a security can lose value and continued to sell them. They put their businesses at risk because they bought more than they could sell... hence the bail out of Bears Stern.
the worse off are those that can't pay their mortgage due to lay offs, or adjustable rate. the recession has been here since May '07. Those are the people who need to be bailed out, then the rest of the people get their money. Those that bought on spectulation...
All Financial institutions need regulations again. Unfortunately this cycle keeps repeating itself as the hedge funds and savings and loan debacles of the 20 th century can attest to.”
Where did our educational system go so wrong as it is the heart of this problem...people thinking without a brain...people thinking killing is right.
Religious Right and Greed what a combination.”

“Bravo, MysticInd! It's our educational system that is breeding Beves and Buttheads ... and Antichrist! Thomas Arnold, D.D., the Victorian educator credited "with changing the face of education all through the public schools of England," declared that "education that does not stress morality alongside intellectual power and knowledge, threatens to produce one of the most fearful forms of Antichrist which yet appeared" (Letter to Rev. G. Cornish, Laleham, 18 October 1825, in the British Library). America is now reaping the fruits of the liberal, godless education, which cripples critical thinking vital for strategic planning!”
“Let's see now... they bought a channel; they still do excellent reporting but no can see them; they mysteriously dropped from my channels I could view. I think that is the reason for the low ratings. Shame on you directV”
“Totally Agree! We'll be seeing more of this for the next 14 days and then again around Christmas. Super tension in the air.”

“We wouldn't be experiencing desperate times & there would be lots of jobs if if we had a decent government that decided to once again be for the people instead of politics, but that's not obama's agenda. He wants the U.S. to continue spirilng so that the formation of a New World Order in joint with other countries will become a reality, & if you think people are reacting poorly now, wait until that happens. We don't need mental health clinics & a pill for everything, just a good old fashioned moral-thinking country of citizens & leaders who once again feel the same way.”
“Smiley has some good points; additional items I ran across today: semi/Automatic weapons are used at gun ranges for the fun and thrill of it, the gun manufacturers could equip the safety with an autoconnect to a bio-chip of the actual owner, and ALEC has weakened gun safety in 36 states.
Three highly publicized cases involve gag clauses to prevent the public from knowing the dangers of Pharma involved in those cases. So mental health even has another back door to capitalism. It's time we start taking care of one another.”
