Since OBAMA got in office, sometimes i think it would be better to live in Germany or Russia. Thats is horrible for an american to say. but the way our country is going maybe it would be better atleast then i would expect to be treated like this.

How are you treated? Badly? And by who?

The reason the country is in it's worst economic depression and environmental disarray is due to the republicans. Nice try to blame it on a new president. Oh, and if you don't want that check, just let me know, I'll come and take it off your hands.

You retarded partisan hack. Is your screen name ironic judging from what you posted? He's been in office since January 21. It's now HIS war, HIS deficit--which by the way tops 1 trillion, his liberal agenda to pass as much social reengeneering through congress before they lose their seats in 2010 due to their unpopular and absolutely stupid ideologies.

You have no idea what you're talking about. You sound like one of these people that relish taking money from all those "evil corporations" that just let people die in the street. But where do you work? Who pays you? Do you think the stimulus money was free? Obama is keeping the printing press turned on 24/7 to finance the banks who gave the people loans they knew they couldn't afford. If you want a name to associate the precipitation of this recession--you might start with Bill Clinton and the creation of the Community Reform Act in 1996. Barney Frank was the person prodding the banks to loan money for all those poor inner city folks who had a right to live in a 500k house. So before you start mimicking something you have no idea about--check your facts. You sound like a parrot--everything is Bush's fault...it's all Bush's fault...ad nauseam. It's not D vs R. They're both guilty. They both ignore their constituents. And neither one of them give two sh!ts about YOU.

ps. please explain how the country is in it's "worst environmental disarray." And then explain how all those evil Republicans are responsible for this disarray.

I can throw more than one-liners. However, it is my experience that when dealing with people like you is better not to say anything. You have been bathed in ignorance and that is what you exude.

I do work for a corporation. I, and yes, I get paid by the owner. There is one small difference, I make 60k a year. My boss makes 10 million. I am making his life style possible. It is only fair that I be remunerated fairly. Insofar as you idiotic complains about Bill Clinton and Obama. They are utterly baseless. It is the republicans who has defecated on this country and many others around the world. A word of advise, stop listening to Rush!

Wow where to begin with this... Let's see. Your boss employees you, but you're entitled to more, right? You're entitled to take money from him because it's just not fair? Come up with your own product, idea or service. Then mass market it. Voila--you'll be rich. Until then be greatful that you have a job in a recession. And you should be VERY greatful you have a job that pays 60k per year in this part of Texas.

As far as the rest of your post--it's completely lame. I'm just as against all the Republicans as I am the Dems. But what I posted was 100% correct. Google "CRA 1996" and see for yourself.

You still haven't refuted one single thing I said. So i'll give you even more since you're a simple minded sheep. Obama has spent more money since January than Bush did in all 8 years in office. Obama campaigned against tax hikes on the middle class, but what do you think is going to happen with cap and trade and the 500 million tax on cell phone carriers? He has a tax cheat running the IRS. Eric Holder brokered the deal to get Puerto Rican terrorist bombers off the hook for jail time in the 80's. He has a member of Raza Unida in his cabinet. He said the stimulus HAD to be passed or else the sky would fall and unemployment would climb drastically. Congress passed the bill without reading it, and Obama waited a WEEK to sign it-- and unemployment is still climbing. GM absolutely HAD to have billions or else they risked bankruptcy. He gave them the money and they still went bankrupt. For the first time in history the government actually owns a public, share-holder owned corporation. Show me where that's legal in the Constitution. And speaking of the Constitution, Obama usurped the 14th amendment numerous times by forcing states to accept stimulus money when several clearly stated that they didn't want it.

Obama has tasked ACORN with census taking--despite hundreds of allegations of fraud. He promised and open, honest government that would post bills online and leave them up for 5 days for public opinion. The stimulus bill never went up before the public. And the list goes on. Now rather than retorting with your little insults, why don't you show me where i'm wrong. The problem is that you have an inflated sense of entitlement--just like so many others. And ps--I absolutely abhor Rush Limbaugh.

I hate to burst your bubble....the real beginning of the present economic crisis was Jimmy Carter. Oh we can go back to when LBJ privatized Fannie Mae, but it was the peanut farmer's "Urban Redevelopment" debaucle that started the ball rolling. Then Slick Willie re-invented it when he set the legislation in place that forced banks to loan to more minorities and the underpriviledged, even though they did not qualify financially. Then he allowed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to bundle these bad loans with good ones into "investment bundles." Next he put the pressure on investment bankers to buy these bundles. I blame Bush for allowing the ultra conservative side of his party to put a halt to this. It was the wrong time, with 9-1-1 emergencies to deal with.
Now, make all the claims you want and protect Obama all you wish, but do in the right way. Bush is no longer in office...this is Obama's watch, and he is screwing up royally...highest deficit ever...highest spending ever...nothing but a rush to do all he can before the American public can become informed of what his real agenda is. He will sell out to those who champion the illegal alien agenda, the gay agenda, and the environmental agenda in order to get his own socialist agenda passed. Someone will have to come in behind him and clean up the mess; if not America is in the can. The Arabs, Russians,and Chinese are high fiving and back slapping while they laugh their asses off at the United States. They are getting just what they wish...the downfall of American democracy and capitalism.

It is not that I cannot show you where you are wrong. You cannot see it because you have been imbued in some misguided ideology that has placed a thick veil before your eyes. Take some kaopectate and put a stop to your verbal diahrrea.

Republican Nazis:

Don't be mad that you're scumbag president from Conn,not Texas, got booted. Your fear only makes you look weak and senseless.

Obama won by a landslide. Bush has proven to be one of the worst presidents ever. Proven by Americans. You are dinosaurs that will soon die off and hopefully this society can actually embrace positive change. Keep fighting a fight you already lost. Sorryazz closed minded fools.

Obama may have won, illegally, but just like a dog chaising his tail, he hasn't gotten anywhere, or done anything. Bush has accomplished more than Obama, he got out of Office. And Obama did not carry the majority of the votes in the State of Texas.
