Checking out any news site is about enough to scare the crap out of anyone.

What's the biggest thing going on right now in your mind? Mine's Jon and Kate's big announcement-ooooh, I wonder if it's divorce! OMG!

Haha, ok, just kidding, North Korea is on top of my scares the crap out of me list. How about you?

Does it concern you in the respect that you want it, or that you don't?

I was reading some interesting findings on the proposed plan from the CBO. It's a little concerning that the plan out there right now would cost 1.6 trillion dollars. That's a LOT of dough we don't have. They also indicated that nearly 10% of those we consider uninsured are illegal immigrants, and an additional 50% of the uninsured could buy and pay for their own coverage, but instead don't.

No matter what though, I think we can all agree that the things going on now are crazy all around!

The loss of our individualism.

I think the abundant ignorance and lethargy in America and how easily we've allowed the progressive/marxist movement to gain such a foothold has me most concerned. It's a tremendous eye-opener to see how much power a politically-corrupt media has over we Americans. I thought we were a stronger nation of individuals. Instead, I see a bunch of scared zombies, hooked on 'Dancing With The Stars' and willing to aimlessly follow whichever direction the media and some smarmy politician points us toward.

I'm concerned simply voting out or impeaching the current administration won't be enough to regain our swagger and individualism. I'm concerned too much damage has been done by inept, lying and deceitful leadership.

I guess all of them can be serious depending on who you are & how you look at things. The GM bailout leaves me a lil p.issy for the fact that they brought all this stuff unto themselves. The Healthcare is spinning out of control too. I pity alot of people that are basically screwed by the whole system. Terrorism I think is ALWAYS in the back of everybodys mind. I guess it could be scary if you let it. Jon & Kate...geez all I can say is PATHETIC! Now she made the headlines by smacking the crap outta her daughter in public? These two get what they deserve when you go & make your WHOLE life public! Get divorced...WHO CARES!...=0)

Our testicle free President will push Nationalized
Healthcare through quickly, like the stimulus package was pushed.

I think alot of our problems could be solved by dealing with illegal immigration to the US and by booting the illegals that are already here.

It's all scary so I'm just focusing on getting through college right now and ignoring the rest of it. I don't feel/believe worrying will change anything in the grand scheme of things anyhow. I kind of think we're already screwed!! So college is the focus. That and getting into the salon for a pedicure. Seriously.

I didn't even know who the Gosslins were until the whole marriage going south rumors started. I look at them and they kind of make me nauseated; I get the feeling she sees dollar signs in those children. Granted I don't know much about them...so I may be wrong. I feel badly for the kids. It's like they have been/are being exploited for their twit parent's financial gain. My opinion, based on the few articles I've read anyway!

Good Day,

I voted for Iran. I now wear a 2" wide green wrist band I made out of felt and velcro in support of those fighting for freedom. North Korea, most of their rockets fail any way. If the leadership wants to be xenophobic, fine. Close the door and make sure it stays shut to keep arms and any nuclear technology from getting out. The defecit, while extremely concerning, what can we do about it except vote for fiscal conservatives. Nationalized healthcare is starting to look, thankfully, like a dead horse and won't happen at least this year.
