Sux, unless you have a Link card or work in the QC or Peoria. Or if you are one of the lucky ones who work in banking or some kind of management position with a decent company. I'm joking about the Link card btw.

OR you wanted "CHANGE"......well you got it!!!!!!! Going into depression, we lost our AAA rating for the first time in history due to OBONOECONOMICS. Wake up before it is TOO LATE!!! Obono wants to destroy the America DREAM! Maybe you have already given up....but the rest of AMERICA has not!!!!!!!!

You talk about Blogovich......who wanted bribe to get Obono in office. Why don't you log onto NEWSMAX and see the BIG picture.

Sigh,

America22,

We haven't been using Obonoeconmics or whatever you want to call it.

Please define Obamaeconomics for us please. I'm betting you don't know the first thing about economics but that's an area I will very glady debate you on.

We did not lose our triple AAA rating but not because of economics or our inability to pay back our debt. If you read the report, which I did, you will see that Standards and Poor downgraded us because a small faction of the Republican party used the debt ceiling as a bargaining chip for their master plan of austerity. If you know anything about austerity, you would know that they are engaging in the practice in Europe and the european economy is in big trouble.

Obama, I'm pretty sure of this, doesn't want to destroy the American dream. I'm also pretty certain that that statement alone (overblown rhetoric) got you the nut rating.

Probably, that statement and the fact that you get your information from Newsmax. LOL

We very well could see a double dip recession (depression might be pushing it) but we have not been using progressives economics in this country for decades. We instead, are still using Friedman's supply side economics that has been shown not to work time and time again. And yet, for some unfathomable reason, Republicans continue to insist that it's just great.

So, please define Obamanomics, or whatever it is, to the rest of us. We anxiously await your response.

We lost our AAA rating because that is what they planned. The NWO can't move forward with it's plans for one world currency until the American economy & it's dollar are trashed. They sure are having their fun, aren't they?

Get Help, I don't think they will wake up. I think they are bunch of mush minded brainwashed crazy people who are so ignorant that they believe everything that is told to them except facts.

It's up to the rest of us to educate the unbrainwashed masses and lead the way for them.

It's a long hard road, but together we can do it!

And I thought the same thing when I saw NewsMax!!!!

Get it straight dummy, the economy is in a downward spiral because of past administrations- Clinton and Bush. The irresponsibility of lending during those periods caused this. Many companies made bad real estate investments and insured them with mostly one company - AIG. When bad mortgages given to under qualified people when bad, the insurers couldn't match the payments with qualified funds. AIG at one point insured 60% of all mortgages in the U.S. The bail outs were just a life line so the entire country didn't go into a depression. Instead of blaiming the government blame the mortgage hungry banks and the people who borrowed outside of their means using an A.R.M. The American public needs to stop spending outside their means. The government (now matter the administration, going back to Reagan) needs to stop spending outside their means. If we stop paying for illegal immigrants, who make up for somewhere between 12%-18% of our population now, imagine the savings!

Here is my proposal to make illegal immigrants pay their way. Lower the personal income tax. Not everyone pays in anyway. Raise the sales tax 1%. That way ANYONE in the country has to pay for services, whether they are legal or not. Many states are thriving without a state income tax. Texas and North Dakota for example are doing great with jobs, state spending, etc. The American public loves to spend, so lets fund the American public programs and such with these dollars!

Obviously I know a heck alot more than YOU!! Check the facts:
The troubling economic developments coincide with increasing worries about President Obama’s performance. His disapproval rating of 71 percent on the economy is 11 points higher than in May and well above the previous high of 63 percent in November.

Gallup also found that 76 percent of Americans cite economic issues as the most important problem facing the nation, the highest percentage since April 2009.

The most commonly mentioned specific problems are the economy in general, at 31 percent; unemployment or jobs, at 29 percent; and the federal budget deficit and federal debts, at 17 percent.

Meanwhile, President Obama’s overall job approval fell to an all-time low of 39 percent over the weekend, Gallup reported.

Diana Furchtgott-Roth, a Hudson Institute senior fellow who served as chief of staff for President George W. Bush’s Council of Economic Advisers, tells Newsmax that Obama’s low approval numbers are without doubt related to the nation’s economic woes.

“He can’t really go on blaming Bush two years afterward, when President Obama was the one who called for the trillion-dollar stimulus, which has succeeded in raising the unemployment rate by almost two percentage points,” she said.“At some point you have to just step up and accept responsibility.”

YOU are in the MINORITY, YOU better do the research....because I HAVE!!!!!!

Thank you for your intelligent comments.....sometimes I think this country is filled with SHEEP!!!!! They wanted "CHANGE", well they are getting it!!!!!

Did you see the latest polls, if not these are the latest:

I understand what you are saying.......BUT.....I can easily afford another 1% increase in sales tax. I live in Florida and have no income taxes. But it will be a burden for true AMERICAN'S too!! I say "SHIP THEM ALL BACK"!! Do you know Hewitt-Jackson income tax company actually posted a signs at their locations stating that 9 out of 10 Americans DO NOT PAY INCOME TAXES!! I for one pay PLENTY, much more than "MY FAIR SHARE"

Increased Sale tax is really not the answer.....just kick the illegals OUT, re-examine EVERY Social Security disability.......we have millions sucking on the government tit. It is time to STOP IT!!

Sometime check out WHO owes huge amounts of income taxes......it is shocking and disgusting!

I know people will disagree, and they have that right...but there are many intelligent solutions to our economic woes! Take care

Here's just a few critiques of the website where America 22 is getting his "information."

From an article titled: NewsMax's Reality Distortion Field by Terry Krepel

"Alas, NewsMax is so enmeshed in its own biases that it doesn't see them for what they are. Overall, the site is such a shoddy work of alleged journalism that, as Brendan Nyhan writes in the American Prospect, "it's certainly questionable that (Ronald Reagan) would endorse NewsMax magazine as the key to his legacy." It's obviously, however, the legacy that Christopher Ruddy and Michael Reagan want.

NewsMax is a place where, when campaign finance reform is mentioned, "reform" is always in quotation marks. It is a place where Bush's faith-based charities plan is really about stopping "federal discrimination against religious charities," as one recent front-page blurb put it. And it's a place where the Clintons are never less than evil.

It's an amazing distortion field of self-delusion. All the better to sell more magazines."

And from an article titled: NewsMax is not a Reliable Source of News:

"For those of you who rely on Newsmax for your news, you should be aware of some of their more notable screw-ups:

On May 26, 2000, Newsmax published an article claiming Hillary Clinton refused to meet with the Gold Star Mothers.[18] According to the Gold Star Mothers organization, this was false and "Senator Clinton greeted us graciously on Gold Star Mothers Sunday, 2005. This story was also debunked at other websites[19] and eventually led to a retraction by NewsMax.[20]

A 2005 NewsMax.com report about Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, claiming he was "teaming up" with rock band U2 for a fund-raiser, gained considerable attention. Santorum had actually purchased 66 tickets to a sold-out show and was reselling these to campaign supporters at $1,000 per seat. The band issued a statement denying it was involved in the practice, saying, "U2 concerts are categorically not fund-raisers for any politician; they are rock concerts for U2 fans."[21] Rather than admitting the error and issuing a correction, Newsmax simply changed its article about the fund-raiser without telling readers it had been changed, stating that the story was misinterpreted."

It goes on and on with factual errors on other stories.

In other words, let's all take what America 22 says for what's it worth: That would be nothing!!!

Seriously America 22, find a new source of information.
