Look at the steel mills? Gone. Since 1986, 15 million high-paying manufacturing jobs have left the US and American workers. When American workers lost their blue-collar jobs they stepped up to the plate and educated themselves in the technologies that they were told would assure them security. Sadly, corporate America lied. Not only are American workers losing their coveted jobs, but in unprecedented moves they are being asked to train their replacements. How many of you have heard that? I seen it happen with Lexmark. So they could compete with or try to, with Hewlett Packard. While every damn worker there complained about the big boss getting a bonus of over $1,000,000 plus salary. If you think a million is high, it is nothing compared to the salaries that was allowed to go on under George W. Bush.

Maybe you are a Republican, maybe you vote for them, believe me, you have that right. But I am here to tell you. I am for the little man. There is at least 1,500,000 or more of us. There is a whole lot that have more money then we do, and just 400 or less of them, could buy us out lock, stock and barrel. But of those 1,500,000, we do the work. We can control what congress elects. If we don't band together for change soon, China is going to own America. If we don't form an Independent Party, that represents us. Represents our thoughts, we aren't going to be free a whole lot longer. Let me tell you straight up, I am not one that votes Democrat, all of the time. But I am from Kentucky, and I will be damn, if I ever vote for a Senator, that says, I am going to spend the next two years trying to defeat the President. Hell, I want a Senator that is going to ask for spending cuts. Going to do all he can to save our country from bankruptcy. Take a peek at what Rand Paul is trying to get done as I write? Look it up. Look up what the other Senator is doing? Not a damn thing but saying a few words, that everyone already knows. Remember what George Bush said? The Democrats are going to raise your taxes. Hell lets face the facts, you damn right, just as soon as this economy gets a little steam. And it will not matter, who is in office. They will have to raise it on the wealthy to begin with, hell they can afford it. Those of us in the 1,500,000, don't worry, you aren't rich. Oh! There might be a few well off, but not rich. Don't listen to those that are paid $30-40 million, telling you, we can't afford a tax cut. Tell them, if anyone can afford to pay more it is you. The super rich, pay those bastards to tell you, we need those tax cuts. What we need is about 1200 radio stations, a bunch of TV stations across America, telling the rich to step up to the pump and help America by investing in America, by paying more taxes. Hell how hard is that to understand. Call every radio station, call every newspaper, tell them. Take a damn stand where it counts. For everyone that is in that 1,500,000. I could care less if you are Republican, or Democrat. There are more of us then there are of them. Tell them we need to keep our borders shut down as tight as Dicks Hat Band. You can say what ever in the Hell you care to about me. There is nothing I haven't heard before. I have written for T. Boone Pickens, in newspapers, magazines, Huffington Post, as a Rapid Reponder for Kentucky... Pale Rider

Please...more rambling. This is called change and you voted for it. There are fewer doing my profession that in the past because of automation. Because of computers, I can do what 10 could previously do. Not only that but my responsibilities increased. My grandfather worked in a steel mill that is now closed. Why, because someone else could make it as good but cheaper. 40 years ago I was told to get an education. I took that advice and I cannot complain. Many didn't and they are the ones you speak of.

If you want to look fondly at the past that is great. If you expect these things to always occur get real.

You may be good with words, but you are one hell of a long ways from the 2% that don't need a tax cut that I spoke of. the past has a way of repeating its self. I am glad you have an education, nothing wrong with that. You may drive a fancy car, right? I wonder what kind it is?

We could and can compete in the world. It is people like you, that don't give a damn if every job goes over seas. You are one of those that think everyone owes you something. Well, The next time you go to Kroger's, who do you think stocks those shelves? Who do you think is up at the crack of dawn to plant corn. One of those men spend more on a combine then you have as net worth. Your education has only made a fool out of you. You think you have an answer for everything. But I have news for you, you have a lot to learn. It takes all kinds to make the world go around.

Its all about choices. Things change and if you don't have a plan you could end up on the short end. I believe that 90% of things that happen to you are within your control. The other 10% is fate and the Lord.

I have had hardship and set backs. However, I am not going to blame others for my problems. I have moved on hopefully learned from them and will not make the same ones again.

What I will not do is feel sorry for myself as I control my future. That is the difference between you and me. I see it half full and you see it half empty.

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.

Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home.
The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude... I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.

And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes.

Positive attitude is a great attribute indeed. No argument there. The only problem is that it's hard to stay positive when there are more people searching for decent jobs than there are decent jobs & you happen to be one of those seekers.
Let's be honest about education. Not everyone is capable of higher learning or even have the opportunity to do so. But most of them are capable of successfully working in manufacturing/blue collar jobs.
These folks can't support or sustain their families on jobs paying minimum wages @ McDonalds. That income won't pay for housing, utilities, transportation, insurance, clothing & groceries.
Our middle-class is quickly being dissolved due to the lack of available jobs that promote finanicial security.
The wealthy aren't the ones who keep this country strong, it's the middle-class workers & we need to get them back on their feet.

Opportunities exist when policies allow for people to put their $ at risk without being taxed at a rate that makes the risk not worth it.

If business policy by the Dems would be pro-business you'd see hiring. Would you risk your $ if the risk was greater than the reward? Healthcare costs, increased taxes, other business costs (electricity due to cap and trade), regulation....Why? These are all job killing practices the Obama administration is using that has created a continued recession with risk of double dipping into another with increasing government debt and higher interest rates. This guy has no clue as to what to do.

Thank god the republicans are back influencing policy.

So said Charles R. Swindoll word for word. Now wouldn't it be nice to know what you might write or think on your own. Without another copy and paste. Please make your commentary in your own words, your thinking. We want to here from you. Not Plagiarism.
Dee Lay? Is that to much to ask of you? Do you not have a thought at all in that empty head, that you can share on your own, without stealing what someone else has written for you?

I don't know how you know who I voted for? But it wasn't for Obama. I voted for experience. I voted for John McCain. I wish more would have. I don't have a clue what Senator McCain would have made as President, no more then AlGore would have made. I am sure Gore would not have invaded Iraq. We may not have had 9/11/01, I guess we will never know.

Whatever the case may be. It has nothing to do with what I wrote about. The Rich (2%) verses those that will never be billionares. And how they manipulate the government, influence thinking by use of newspapers, by a constant blasting your (propaganda) head through radio, TV. It is not about, trying to be all you can be. It is our government being manipulated by the filthy rich. That pass laws, that give contracts that the little people pay for. It is everyone that reads this, the majority of voters. Those that started the Tea Party, and others want as a fair shake. You may be worth a $100 million or more, but you are far from those that are the filthy rich, that control the USA. There are more of us then there are of them, why can't we take back America, and we could if we stood together. Then we would tell them how we want change.

The Republicans have had 8 years, I did not vote for Obama. But there has been a lot of money spent since he took office. There has been change that has taken place. There has been a massive amount of monies spent. No one likes that. No one likes the idea of North Korea, Iran with nukes. They were working on them when Bush was in office. So what do you do? The country is nearly broke. Two wars. Health costs are out of control. Unemployment above 9%. Jobs that were once here are gone. Mexicans have came in to do what the lazy fat Americans will not do. So what would you do? Probably no one person in America knows. Bush never. The Tea Party is all but dead for now. Can we keep spending? Isn't it time to think about a balanced budget? How about just buying what is made in America.

Lyndon Johnson 11.9 million
Jimmy Carter 10.5 million

Total = 57.5 Million jobs by the Democrats
Dwight Eisenhower 3.5 million
Richard Nixon 9.4 million
Gerald Ford 1.8 million
Ronald Reagan 16.0 million
George H.W. Bush 2.5 million
George W. Bush 3.0 million

It's all Bush's fault.
That's where most Americans still put the blame for our economic problems, even though it's been more than three years since George W. Bush left office.
A new Gallup Poll shows 68% of those surveyed say the former president deserves either a great deal or a moderate amount of blame. Thirty-one percent say he deserves not much or no blame at all.
Compare that to the man who has actually been steering the ship for the last three-plus years.
Fifty-two percent say President Obama deserves the blame for America's economic troubles. Forty-eight percent say he's not to blame.
The relative economic blame given to the two leaders is virtually the same as September 2011.
As is usually the case, there's a partisan divide here, although Republicans are more willing to blame Bush than Democrats are willing to blame President Obama.
As for independents, they are substantially more likely to blame Bush than Obama.
With the economy the top issue for November, all this is very good news for President Obama.
Even though Americans have more negative than positive views of the economy and the direction it's headed people are more likely to blame the president's predecessor.
It kind of makes you wonder at what point President Obama will own this nation's problems.
Meanwhile all this comes on the heels of another poll that showed President Bush as the least popular living ex-president.
Mitt Romney may want to keep this in mind as he selects his running mate. Several of his potential vice presidents have close ties to Bush, including folks like Rob Portman, Mitch Daniels and, of course, Jeb Bush.
