“Yes they should. Instead of some of these complaining how much is being spent on unemployment extensions, maybe they should be worrying about finding ways to get some of these jobs back in this country. Of course they won't do that though.”

“" finding ways to get some of these jobs back in this country.".... like reversing our INSANE trade policies? That is the only way as far as I know. Sure prices will go up a bit - BUT we will have jobs, and money to spend - which means more JOBS.

“I hope congress is enjoying their spring break while no one is talking about the fact that thousands will lose UI benefits Apri 5th. It's ok to bail out banks and pay for wars that make no sense, but ask the US to take care of it's everyday people is too much. Did Obama even mention the fact that many unemployed will lose their benefits soon? Or was he to busy patting himself on the back for the health care bill and making recess appointments? F* the teabag movement, and F* the politicians who only care about political posturing. Reid didn't have to adjourn for break until this UI matter was taken care of. Yes, the Republicans are evil and the Democrats are on their a$$ in second place.”

“It matters little what party holds what seat if Washington. The Democrats and Republicans will do nothing to make things better for every day people. I don't see how this senate seat loss for the Dems is a wake up call? America has been asleep for years buying into left vs. right. If you idiot Republicans think your party gaining control again will help, then you are truly fools. Keep buying into the Dems and the Repubs BS while they rob you blind right in front of your faces. Obama is a total joke as well.”

“You are correct sir. The American public is so wrapped up in the
phony Left / Right paradigm that they are blind to the FACT that BOTH

“We're all so gutless in this country that the banks are justified in screwing us anyway they can. We tolerate our troops dying in wars that make no sense. We live materialistic lives. We teach are children to be shallow beings. We teach them to vote democrat or republican and we get what we deserve electing them. I could care less if the banks screw us. we deserve it. When we are in 3rd world status, it will be deserved. We gutless. I'm going to go follow how many women Tiger Woods has slept with now.”

“This mirage has been created by us. Voting for these fools like we have for years and believing the lies they tell us. We have let the crooks get away with this by buying into the propaganda the corporatist types spew. Obama being the latest one spewing it.

Everyone get out there and get your Chinese made products this holiday season if you still have a job. There are millions and millions of Chinese that need jobs. Just remember the free market will correct this mess.”

“Of course this deal is huge for insurance companies, congress works for the likes of them after all, not the people. The small percentage of Americans that are interested in political process would be better suited to just go follow stories like how many women Tiger is sleeping with or the fact that Meredith Baxter came out. What good does it do to be politically aware when you actually don't do a thing about the bought and paid for crooks in Washington? I won't pin my hopes to the Democrats or Republicans, they have already proven time and time again who they are and who they work for. Do yourself a favor and go back to sleep, it does no good to be awake.”

“Yes we do need to. The thing is will the private sector step up and actually allow that to happen? They outsource every chance they get. They really seem to have no interest in doing that. Few in the government that I'm aware of have stepped up and said manufacturing in this country needs to be stepped up. Where are the 'patriots' in the private sector taking a chance by investing in this country? I always hear how the free market will handle all problems and right itself. Well, it isn't happening.”
