For normal forum viewers, be forewarned; Obama has thousands of people who lurk on the forums all over the country and who do nothing but spread Obama propaganda and seek to discredit those who would speak up against Obama. They scream,'racist','bigot','liar' and fear 'monger'.
They refer you to 'FactCheck'- which is useless because it is owned by George Soros who sponsors Obama.

Congratulations, it looks like you are pursuing the American dream. That is until next year if Obama gets in, your business will be taxed up the wazoo because you will have made to much money. I guess it doesn't pay to be a law abiding, hard working American. And your not in the minority. The media has put Obama right there next to Paris and Brittney just like McCain said earlier in the campaign.

If anyone out there listens to Howard Stearn take a look at his sight later when today's show is posted. One of the guys went out on the street and asked people these questions: Do you like Obama's pick of Sarah Palin? Answer: Yes. Do you agree with McCains belief of Pro Choice? Answer: Yes. Hello!!! There is something really wrong here!

Wouldn't it be nice if the media would report this, or better yet McCain should bring this up. It's so convienent that it is swept under the rug.

The last 168 BILLION dollar stimulus check did little to stimulate our economy. Why don't they instead use that money for a more long term solution such as making electric plug in cars or hybrid cars more affordable to the average person. Or to promote the installation of wind turbines to provide free electricity. We HAVE to become a more energy independent nation. The high cost of oil has all but ruined our economy. We need our officials to look at things in the long term such as getting us off oil and utilizing other sources of energy. Jeff Wilson just released a new book called The Manhattan Project of 2009. I wish our elected officials would buy themselves a copy.
Another great read is Apollo's Fire by Jay Inslee calling for a plan to be energy independent in the same model as we had for getting to the moon in 10 years by Kennedy.

More rebates are ridiculous. They are just a band-aid that will forestall the pain of the recession that we already are in.

Until the housing issue is solved we will not get out of this mess and that will require stemming the foreclosures and making money available to borrowers to buy homes to reduce the housing glut. Perhaps they could use the $300 billion to attack that problem instead of pumping up the holiday season.

I have a great idea and here it is below. I propose that the government issue everyone an ATM/Debit card. On every Friday, the government should load it with $1000 so we can go shopping, dining at fine restaurants, watch movies, use it for recreation, etc.... This way, we end up stimulating the economy. How will the government pay for it? Easy, we have a triple AAA credit rating (S&P, Moody's and Fitch say so, thus they must be right) and thus our government issues treasury bonds and the Chinese, Germans, Dutch, etc.... will be tripping over themselves to buy them. Thus a win-win situation for all parties; Americans get to shop til they drop, and our foreign creditors get a Treasury Bond with a triple AAA rating backed by the full faith and credit of the United States Government (the most powerful entity in the Universe).

Bush-Cheney, Inc. "Stimulus Packages" are defined as Budget Deficit Extension and National Debt Expansion. Of course, these numbers
are too infrequently highlighted, and never seriously analyzed, discussed
in accordance with true importance!?!

Everyone demands low taxes and/or
tax cuts from governments (peoples at all levels), yet demand extraordinary services and benefits.
Governments need revenue to function
adequately. America is in a decades'
on near-free ride mode. The time is
NOW for realistic, permanent, progressive taxes reformation,
including appreciable tax increases.

It's time to send our elected officials a WAKE-UP call. We don't need a quick fix, we need a long-term solution. Unfortunately, with the elections around the corner, they're more focused on self preservation and attempting to buy our votes with a another stimulus package. What a joke!

Until we learn to live without credit cards and taking loans out for everything all that can be accomplished by this bailout is a smokescreen. Eventually we're going to have to pay for our lack of fiscal responsibility and I say let's do it now. Let's get the national debt eliminated, (that was one thing B Clinton did), let's make it tougher to get loans for anything and let's quit trying to protect idiots from themselves, this includes Wall St and the homeowners who are in foreclosure.

And I don't mean the homeowners who have had catastrophic events happen to them, I mean the nuts who took bad mortgage deals and maxed their CC's out and are now crying poor. As for those who have true need I'm not even sure we should help them, no one said life was fair.

Bill Clinton did not eliminate the national debt.

There were a few years of surpluses because Congress and the President wanted to fight rather than create laws to spend our money and everyone projected those surpluses indefinitely into the future.
