All you racist fools are just mad because their is a black man in the White house now. Obama promised all of us - and you included - that we wouldn't have to worry about no more bills if he got elected and he meant it.

well! Where you going?? or running to? The world is only so big and if you are not satisfied where you are, you are not going to be anywhere so just humble yourself and respect our leaders. Do you think you can do any better,(MY BAD) of course you do. I heard one time that some men ( i'm not naming) was moving to the moon i guess they found out who owns it and that the man in the moon have rules too!!! LOL (peace)

I am African American and I want to know who's going to pay the bill? Our elected representatives don't make money they print it and someone has to pay the cost. So, as our elected representatves print money and provide free health care; which the Canadians, British and Germans say doesn't work who's going to pay the bill? What ever happened to teach a man to fish and he eats for the rest of his life, give a man a fish and he eats for a day. I'd rather be a fisherman, than a beggar for fish, when I can get my own fishong pole, find my own bait , bait my hook and catch as much as I can. There are no free lunches, becuase someone has to pay for the food, dishes, the chef and every thing else that goes with that meal. So I ask who is going to pay? I decide how I will live and die by my choices, not by someone who doesn't know me. I pray for our African American President to do the will of God and not the special interest groups that he is beholding to. So, proud African American who's going to pay the bill?
