Are you suggesting that the Government should set housing prices? To whom do you want to give authority over "the economy?" The Communist Party of the United States is the only one with an idea for directing "the economy." My observation is simply that the US government does a great many things quite well. All this chatter about how terrible the government is just rubbish intended to make pols who want to pose as populists while they try to get hold of the reigns of power look like they are helping the people when they are really just helping themselves. It was rubbish when Reagan said it and it's rubbish now.
Ah, I see my check has arrived.
Ciao
I'm suggesting that government is the reason for the housing crisis. Read up on the causes. What Reagan said so eloquently probably went right over your head. So here it is one more time for you. "Government is not the solution to the problem, government is the problem". How right he was.

Do you read anything other than liberal dribble? The Social Security Trust fund is going broke. Something must be done, again to fix the problem. What we were once promised by our government, a DemocRAT in particular was that participation in the program would be completely voluntary. A lie. That we would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of our annual wages into the program. A lie. That the money we put into the fund would be deductible from income for tax purposes. A lie. That the money the was to be put into the
independent trust fund rather than into the general operating fund, and therefore, would only be used to fund the Social Security Retirement Program, and no other programs. A HUGE lie. That the annuity payments to retirees would never be taxed as income. Another HUGE lie. And who perpetrated all these lies upon the American people? The DemocRATic party, thats who. So take your piffle and your dribble and stick it where the sun doesn't shine.

Piffle. I've been hearing self styled conservatives talk that trash since 1960. "Oh!" they cry, "Social Security is going broke and we're all going to be murdered in our beds because of the naughty liberals!!!! EEEk! The liberals are coming!" And so on and so on. Don't you know that the United States is currently the laughing stock of the world because our elected representatives can't find their own asses in the dark using both hands? "Help! The liberals are coming!!!!!" .... and so on and on and on.

Ho hum. The lunatic right has been trying to dress itself in the clothes of conservatism quite long enough. Now, perhaps, you would like to shriek a bit less loudly and turn your attention to actually running the affairs of the country instead. Come, now, you can't run the country by whining about gay marriage and abortion all the time. Like Kurt Vonnegut wrote, "You have been very sick, but now you're better and there is work to do."

The buck stops at the top. Obama has made many many promises. And by all accounts he has delivered absolutely nothing. Look at the damage he has managed to do to this country in two and a half years. What an accomplishment. He is not a leader because he has no clue how to lead. Now more than ever a great leader is what this country needs. Sniffle, tiffle, biffle, piffle, diffle all you want. You have no clue either.

Being an ex Surprise Res. and having made the mistake of voting for McCain more times than I care to remember, because of his POW status, it's nice to see John sinking his teeth into something that will, I hope, keep him out of Washington. He has become a goofy as half of the recreation committee in Sun City West. Gambling on a reservation is for sure much more important to America than defense, or the lack of funds to pay our bills. So before you can screw up any thing more than you already have John stay with that gambling thing.
For those of you that think remarkes directed at the fool in the WH, let me remind you that bozo is half white, yes the bastard is in fact, half white, try not to forget that. Now if you all think I'm a racist, too damn bad, because I don't care!

How many votes of gratitude does John McCain deserve. The people of Arizona have supported and voted for him many times without the rewards many other senators have secured for their states. He has been riding the hero train for much too long, for someone who was an incompetant pilot who got shot down and spent the rest of the war in a prison camp. Sure he suffered, but billions of people have suffered equally without the rewards heaped on his head.
He has proven to be as incompetant in the Senate as he was in the military, with his main thrust directed toward increasing to number of illegal aliens who can cross our borders .
Not even mentioning the spiritless campaign he waged against the Kenyan, which was further proof of his incompetance.
