I listened to Bush this morning, blaming Congress and everyone else under the sun, except himself for the mess we're now in economically.

No, I never took Economics 101. I never needed to; because my own intuition has always been my own Economics 101. I've lived as frugally as possible, trying to save a buck or two for savings, but sadly, it appears my miserable little dollars are quickly becoming cents!

I recently sold my car and although it was a bit of a gas guzzler, I managed to sell it at the same price had bought it for, making it possible to buy myself a two year old, fully loaded, and VERY ECONOMICAL car, since I saw no end in sight for the skyrocketing gas prices, and the latest news that it will most lightly go up as high as $10.00 per gallon by next year! By and by, it's as cute as a BUG! :o)

Why are the Republicans so leery about mentioning to the public the R and D word?!

Kids, we've been living on borrowed time; living high off the hog, and I honestly believe it will soon come to an END. You better believe we're in a severe recession, a recession that actually began months ago, and a recession that will eventually go into a DEPRESSION as has never been known before!

By and by, I’ve finally found a cure for my insomnia! All I have to do is listen to McCain, and watch his ridiculously mechanical mannerisms to ...YAWN…ZZZZZ. This man STILL refuses to SUPPORT the new GI Bill of Rights.

I’ve been reading and watching Youtube videos about McCain, and seriously, it frightens me to no end, that he becomes our next president. Why? Because of these quotes:

John McCain: "I wish interest rates were zero."

John McCain: "In America today we've got a very strong economy and low unemployment, so we need addition farm workers, including by the way agriculture, but there may come a time where we have an economic downturn, and we don't need so many."

McCain: "I know a lot less about economics than I do about military and foreign policy issues. I still need to be educated."

"I want to convince you of my belief and my firm conviction that Americas economy, the fundamentals are strong, the fundamentals of America are strong, were the greatest exporter, greatest importer, the strongest economy, the greatest innovator, the greatest producer."


Senator McCain, you have said repeatedly: "I know a lot less about economics than I do about military and foreign policy issues. I still need to be educated."

McCain's Answer: "Actually, I don't know where you got that quote from, I'm very well versed at economics, and I was there at the Reagan revolution."

John McCain confuses Iraqi cleric Al Sadr & Prime Minister

1. I've heard way too many times that McCain has a temper. HOW BAD IS HIS TEMPER? Will his temper affect us when it comes to that little red button?!

2. If he becomes our president, how many more Senior Moments will he have?

3. Why do the media continue NON-STOP their smear tactics and video on Obama and the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, when we the people are sick and tired of it? Don't they get it, that we the American people are more interested and concerned about how our critical economy can be FIXED? I mean, I don't want things to get so bad that we'll eventually become cannibals!

4. I’ve often wondered how many years Sean Hannity, O'Reilly, Dick Morris, or any members of their families, OR all those other media warmongers served in the military (besides McCain) served in the military?

I know Bush served, but did Dick Chaney ever serve in the military?

OPPS! I almost forgot!

1. I listened to the entire Rev. Jeremiah Wright speech yesterday morning. How I wish he would shut the F-word up!!

2. My THINGY has a name; it's a highly sophisticated FORUM. I worked like a dog this entire weekend and yesterday night, perfecting all the little nooks and crannies, and should have it up sometime within the next few days. I promise!

3. And on a last note: I can hardly wait to get the miserable $600 which Bush says is a lot of money, and that's supposed to boost our economy, so I can go and give it to the gas companies, who by the way, happened to make 7 BILLION DOLLARS in their first quarter profits, just so I can get to work! Althought I feel it’s too late to remedy the economical fiasco the Bush administration has created, please VOTE OBAMA!

R & D word?

Zero percent interest would be good. Though, good luck finding banks that'll give loans.

The current recession is due to it being an election year. It'll begin to pick up circa October-November.

The seven billion profits are a bit misleading. When you consider inflation, then you'll notice that the oil companies have retained their past buying power. However, you have not, thus you're feeling the costs.

Today's media is all about entertainment and propaganda, not news.

btw, I defended Wright from the resideual smears but yesterday he was acting like a jackass and Obama did the right thing repudiating him and basically cutting himself off from him.

It sucks, but he did the right thing. He wasn't given a choice. If anything it allows people to concentrate on ..oh I don't know The Economy!!!?

I mean my poison still makes more sense than the other two. We have one guy who flies over to Coral Gables Florida in his wife's private jet to tell an affluent crowd that Obama is insensitive to poor people? :)

We have another one who is downing shots of whiskey and acting like Annie Oakley tellign stories about how she loves shooting Ducks with her grandfather Elmer Fudd.

I mean Jay Leno and David Letterman are probably saying "God, what good deed did I do to have you be so good to me" ? :)

Honestly, aren't we adults? When will we get back to issues? I just paid almost 40 bucks for half a tank of gas. I don't give a f&$k about someone's crazy pastor.

McCain has Hagee and even though I think Hagee is an asshat, I don't think McCain reflects any of his bizarro views either.

Obama’s worst nightmare! Obama’s worst enemy!
I did, too. Once! And even went so far as to admire the man, but yesterday was just too much, because I finally saw what I hadn’t before, and that was that this man never gave a damn about Obama; a man who has become quite well known throughout the news media, thanks to those videos of him ranting and raving in front of the congregation.

My question is, why did he choose such a time to make those statements which managed to divide many people apart? How did the news media come about those videos? Did he have something to do with it? Did he do these things purposefully, at the expense of Obama, a man of such integrity, that in the beginning, he refused to speak ill of the man, even if it would cost him his chances for the presidency, because he has written a book?!

Unbelievably, but Rev. Jeremiah Wright has proved to be Obama’s worst nightmare! Obama’s worst enemy!

As for the issues at hand you’ve mentioned. What issues? I’ve got the TV on right now, and guess what they’re all talking about? The Reverend Jeremiah Wright!!! Try watching Hannity & Colmes (I like Colmes), and I’ll betcha’ my last two bucks that Sean Hannity is waving his pencil between his two fingers, and uttering the word OBAMA as he makes slanderous accusations about him and his wife, while the Wrights video is on the air, for the 400th time!!!

Is it any wonder this country is quickly taking a nose dive down in to the abyss, when all we hear are STUPIDIES? We’ve become a country that’s more interested in beauty creams, Viagra and The Inquire bull corn, than we are about how we’re going to save this beloved country of ours!

En otra onda, muchas gracias por esta receta de las lentejas! Siempre me han gustado mucho pero no me salen bien. Voy a tratar de cocinarlas y ojala salgan deliciosas.

No se si te gusan el caldo de avas, pero gracias a mi mamá me enseñó, salen muy ricas. Si, es un caldo especial de Pascua, pero son tan saludables y nutritivos que cuando me siento poco recaída, en poco tiempo empiezo a sentirme fisicamente y mentalmente bien otra vez! Son baratas y muy fácil hacer.

Tarde o temprano las haré y pongo las fotos del platillo con la receta.

if I was Wright, I'd be a lot more pissed and vindictive than he's been. I lost a lot of the respect I'd gained for Obama in the way he handled this situation. shows a lot about his character.
the stuff Wright (and Obama by proxy) was being lambasted for were clips taken out of context and repeated with no input or response allowed from him. even if Obama had disagreed with him about details he didnt have to turn on and help assassinate the character of someone who had supported him for years as a friend for political expediency. Hillary hasnt turned on and abandoned her husband who has repeatedly been an ass and betrayed their marriage and cost her politically... because she assumes people can differentiate them as 2 separate individuals with their own minds. I think she underestimates the cartoonish level of association the public generally has, but I respect her for not crapping on her husband when he has hurt her campaign.

that aside, I think the Obama/Wright "issue" is a waste of time and energy and a deliberate diversion away from issues like the economy and the troop-meat-grinder in Iraq. keep the discussion focussed on idiotic gibberish rather than say the lack of health care or the global food shortage or potential wars etc...

Apr. 29th, 2008 11:50 pm (UTC)
Sweety Pie, you’re wrong about Obama. When all the hell broke loose with Wrights videos, Obama refused to relinquish his friendship with the man, all the while knowing that his decision to do so could very possibly cost him the presidency. You’d think Wright would stop right there and shut his mouth up, but not so. I watched and listened, from beginning to end, Wright say terrible, unforgivable things about this country. He even made some unfavorable innuendos about Obama, which could further hurt him.

Enough is enough! It’s about time Obama realized that Wright is not friend, but foe!

Hillary Clinton didn’t leave her ADULTEROUS husband because she already had plans for running for president. She’s a shrewd, ruthless woman, who has continuously fought dirty against Obama.

Perhaps you should learn about economics before denigrating someone for saying they do not know enough about economics and need to learn more.

By the way, if you actually knew economics, you would know that the fundamentals of the economy are actually pretty strong. There are two things dragging the economy down: real estate and energy.

In a very real way, everything that is being done to prevent a recession is just making things worse. It is definitely increasing inflation and that is a very bad thing. I see stagflation on the horizon.

Of course, if you would learn about economics before spouting off you would understand that and a whole lot more. Instead, you proudly admit your ignorance and then judge other people's comments as though you are an expert.

I will not vote for Obama because I do not trust Obama.

Apr. 30th, 2008 01:53 am (UTC)
Of course I proudly display my ignorance...
Oh, but I’m not the one running for the highest position of the land. Besides, I know enough about economics to keep myself from running into the RED, unlike those who are ECONOMIC SPECIALISTS who have not only run our country into the red, but in the deep PURPLE. Besides, common sense, a sparkling personality, and my diplomacy, have gotten me a long way in life.

Our economic fundamentals are strong? I believe I have lots of company when I tell you they’re not.

Of course I proudly display my ignorance, because from what I’ve seen, the intellectuals haven’t been doing such a great job at all. Not only should have all those running our government spent our tax dollars more wisely and frugally, but they should have also seen this mess coming LONG before it got so bad.

Obama won’t need your vote, because he’s going to win, with or without it, come November.

As for spouting my mouth off, I’ll continue to do so; after all, I believe I deserve this right, after serving my country for 4 long years.

that McCain has a temper!
Well if he has and the a bad guy like akamademjad pisses him off the Iranian will get the worst of it. A point for us.

I only heard the highlights of the press conf and you are right, he blamed congress, easy to do. Lame ducks want to look good, they all have done it. I will be very very happy when he is gone, gone, GONE.

Still can not agree with you on Obama, he is weak in many areas and the media, if they guit giving him a pass, may chew him up and spit him out. I do not believe he is electable. (my opinion only)
Apr. 30th, 2008 02:59 am (UTC)
I respect your views, but disagree...
I have actually never been an Obama supporter, from way before the Rev. Wright scandal. I do not agree with much of what he says or stands for, and I honestly believe he is not the right person for the job. I think he is far too inexperienced and somewhat unrealistic. I do not think he has the power to unite America the way he says he can. Mind you, I'm not saying Clinton or McCain are the right people. I just think that either one of them is more qualified.

My best friend and I were talking earlier tonight, and I said that I hate to agree with Hillary, but I think Obama has had it too easy in the media for the last 6 months or so. This Rev. Wright scandal might be disgusting, but I think it's time to see that Obama isn't the squeaky-clean guy everyone thought he was for so long. I do give props for shooting Wright down, though - that man is an ignorant, hateful biggot, and the best thing he could do for Obama and America is to hide away and keep his mouth shut.
May. 1st, 2008 06:05 am (UTC)
Re: I respect your views, but disagree...
And I not only respect your views, but appreciate you taking the time in sharing them with me, too!

As for squeaky clean, who is? :o)

You say Obama doesn't have experience. Don't you think it’s about time we give someone with no experience a try? Just look at where the guys with experience have gotten us in.

As for Obama having had it too easy, I don't believe so. I've watch some vultures on Fox News knowing on him to the bone from the very beginning. Hillary hasn't been such a nice girl either, when it comes to saying nasty things about Obama.

Obama has been in a position where he's damned if he does, and damned if he doesn't.

Anyway, I never imagined politics were so dirty!

We are this planet's worst enemy. One day, Mother Nature will have had enough, and just end it (us) all and start all over again. And the abuse will start all over again, because humans have a tendency of never learning from past mistakes.

If I were Mother Nature, I'd create critters ONLY!

I only feel sorry for the animals of this world, because they've been the only ones who have loved and respected this earth.

I've heard tell that certain people are taking to Vespa scooters in the face of rising gas prices. While the motorscooter thing has a distinctly Eurotrash feel, there's no denying the mileage you can get out of a Vespa.

Obama and Reverand Wright... maybe you should care a little more about the connection. If somebody is willing to entrust his spiritual welfare to someone who is an unabashed bigot, what kind of policies is he likely to endorse? What sort of positions might he take? Obama's connections are worrisome, no doubt about it.

As for McCain... well, crap. I don't like him. That guy is a politician in the worst possible sense. His admission in your post to knowing "a lot less about economics" than on other things just proves my earlier contention that he's a bad candidate for president.
May. 7th, 2008 06:44 pm (UTC)
Those Vespa scooters sure are cute! I'd buy one, but the only thing I'd accomplish would be to end up splatter all over the freeway! You have no idea how many giant rigs we have to deal with, thanks to NAFTA, and living right across the border. I, as the rest of the motorists, constantly find ourself fenced in to the right, left, front and rear of these rigs that have a tendency of speeding beyond the speed limit. So scary!

As for Obama, he has nothing to do with that Rev. All the suspicions you speak of, have been shoved down our throats by the REPULICAN midia who will say LIES about him, so McCain will be our next president.

Do you trust a FLIPPER FLOPPER of a man who says we wouldn't mind having 100 more years of war, or a man who sung "BOMB BOMB IRAN, a man who is a clone of Bush"?

Obama is for real Dave, believe me, and he IS going to be our next president, mark my words. I'm never wrong in my predictions.
