Mmmmkay, I'm a little late on this one, but hear it goes.
1. Two anwer a question from earlier "What happened to the knife debate"? Regulation is political tool to control you so discussing a president who now in hindsight is going after your second ammendment rights as recently posted in this very forum does tie into this thread, ummm, albiet loosely.
2. No president past, present or future has ever created jobs or lost them.
The only exception to this is if he gives you a post or fires you from said post. This notion that any president will ride around on white stallion flinging job faries out of a magical saddle bag granting you a job is ridiculous. For the last time CONGRESS controls the purse strings and passes legislation spending money that they do not have. The president can ASK for things, and declare emergencies, and execute into law what CONGRESS puts in front of him, etc... (OBTW CONGRESS is and has been run by the dems for the last couple/4 years now, but somehow that was conveniently glossed over). Our current crises really evolved from the type of CONGRESS we elect.
The repubs do share the blame for these current problems we face. They have deep roots some going back to the 70's when we didn't learn our lesson from the first gas crunch! They ran things for about 12 years and didn't do a darn thing about it either.
3. 99.9% of politicians are professional liars. Most of them were lawyers. (First clue)! Obama bin Biden included. 'Nough said.
4. I'll reserve judgement on Obama bin Biden and their redistribution schemes as far as the economy/infrastructure, health care and other needed social programs (yes I do believe there are a few important and needed assistance programs), but I just don't like a person who wants to take fundamental rights. It smacks of populist ruling (i.e. Chavez in Venezuela). I'd rather be self sufficient and free to succeed or fail as the social norm rather than the welfare style and "you gotta give me cause I'm this, or I'm that", which in my experience is abused more than most dems would admit. (It is their personal voting block, just another way to "buy" votes).
Back to deer this just depresses me [:-].
Veni, Vidi, Sagittam Mittere, now I'm ready for my nap
