Right now Amarillo is the second lowest in the state, but time will take care of that then the recession hits us like it did last time. The recession will come this way and when it does hit us just as hard as any other big city; no one is or will be immune to the B.S. that Clinton and his cabinet started. All this crap is due to stupid decisions made by so-called intelligent people that also happen to be lawyers. Now Obama has put some of the same numbskulls in office that had a hand in creating this crap. The bailout monies being given to people as stupid as those that started this BS, just look at how they are giving it to CEOs as bonuses for running their companies into the dammed ground? When will the stupidity and idiocy end? It was once said a revolution every now and then can be a good thing.

No, they are not that stupid. George Bush left our country the way it is. Stupid are the ones that call themselves "Who Cares". I did't think there was someone worse than Bush. Tontis!!!!

Oh yea stupid huh 76 temps and 200 Owens Corning employees are getting the old heave ho I know cause I'm one of the Owens employees. Look at the past recessions itís in print! They did eventually hit Amarillo and they did affect people. Its because of people like Citizen and Who Cares the country is going to shit, allowing the elected officials to tell us how to live, not vice versa they work for us; but when is the last time you wrote your senator, congressman, governor or any elected official. Pull your head out of the sand and open your eyes donít be a dumbass your whole life. Itís just begun!!!!!!!!!!

Of course the recession will hit Amarillo. Why should it be immune? Those elected officials and the Amarillo news media like to pretend that nothing bad happens in Amarillo. Bragging is not going to get us anywhere. I hope they have the decency of accepting the stimulus money so that those unemployed will at least file for unemployment compensation for a longer period of time. Politicians may not feel the pains of losing a job,it's the regular workers that are not rich and are losing their homes. Politicians need to feel the consequences of a recession. How about them losing an election?

I think politicians will feel the consequences of the recession by losing elections. Just look what happened in the presidential election. Those that still complain and blame President Obama for spending too much, need to remember who started the spending. Aside of the millions spent on two wars, there are the lives lost of some of the finest young men and women in our country.

Come on politicians never feel the consequences of anything except being caught. Your right of course remember who started this whole mess Bill I need some head Clinton cause if your wife looked like mine you would want something decent too. I digress, anyway he issued the executive order for the banks and the fedphuckingzilla to give financial loans out so people could buy houses. The banks just took it further by giving loans to people that were not able to finance a piece of bubble gum. So those boneheads put the bonuses in their pockets after the sales. Mean while the people that received loans are now over their head in debt and loosing the property that they bought. Along with that phucking farce of a war over seas and greedy oil companies have caused this damned situation. But do the politicians loose their jobs or feel the crunch everyone else does? Hell no and they never will cause the people give them the power to do whatever the hell they want to.

So. Where did this lovely conversation go? Yes, recession will hit Amarillo, just as it has hit every single city, small town, large city, burg in the country. However, it does appear that Amarillo may be a bit luckier than some areas. Just count your blessings and quit knocking heads.
