Push us over. Another four years of Obama's "more of the same" and he is Herbert Hoover. Such high unemployment rates (double digits amongst blacks and hispanics), continued government bailouts of the super rich (while those less rich are allowed to go down the tubes) and the ever growing national debt... maybe Jeb Bush will run and save us all next go around.

Boehner is right, as long as we allow republicans to control our government, we will go nowhere. Openly admitting he refuses to negotiate, and the only thing he will accept is complete and udder surrender to the GOP. The GOP lost the election, but he is making demands as though he won the election.

Jeb bush??? Hey, that would be great. We could have another 9/11 style attack, but this time on San Francisco. What landmark do you think Jeb should "allow" to be destroyed?

Then he could continue to transform America into the kind of nation that can't compete with Somalia economically, and US worker's wages will be lower than Viet Nam's. Just think how much extra money the monopolies will get. Just think how much they can funnel to the bush family.

Hey, then he could start a few wars. What nations do you think he should attack?

Important -Search "They Live moment of revelation" on Youtube if the above clip stops working.

If this was real what would you do? If there were really aliens that saw us as dumb expendable animals would you just sit back and take their abuse. Would it make any difference if "they" were a small group of people known as the illuminati?

The movie "They Live" made in the 1980's predicted everything that has happened and will probably come to pass in terms of citizen surveillance, drones, and psychological warfare in America. Watch the whole movie.

The same thing that happened to Nazi Germany when the citizenry embraced Nazism is happening to us. The populace was dumbed down and manipuated by the illuminati and their bought out politicians and media into being a prideful yet mindless war machine. When the illuminati were done with Germany they were left a defeated, bankrupt and villified nation. No one gives a crap today when the German people say they were lead astray by their bought out politicians. The world is simply glad that in the end they got what they deserved.

America is heading down the same path. We used to be the beacon of freedom to the world but now our country has become a modern day Nazi Germany war machine starting unprovoked wars across the globe. Many people now spit at us when we visit their countries like we are villains.

If and when we are weakened internally/financially to the point that we leave ourselves open to military attack by countries like Russia and China people will cheer our demise. We have become the bad guys because we presently ALLOW a psychopathic offshore banking cartel to run our country through bought off politicians.

http://www.youtube.com/watch...

That Three Stooges clip sums up the illuminatis mindset very well -our last few Presidents have acted just like dictators.

Occupy Wall Street was started by the illuminati to weaken America and take the focus off them when the global economic collapse occurs. It then got out of control because people started focusing in on the private Federal Reserve. Now the illuminati is trying to clamp down on this movement because citizens are focusing on them and they are extremely nervous.

Wallstreet and the banks are a symptom of a greater problem. There is nothing wrong with capitalism or corporations however what we now have is crony capitalism, not true capitalism. We must swarm Washington DC and the 12 Federal Reserve Bank locations in the U.S. with massive demonstrations if we are going to take our country back. Any Occupy Wallstreet movement outside of Washington DC or the 12 Federal Reserve Bank locations is a distraction designed to keep the movement fractionalized. We must occupy the main problem, not the symptoms.

Never take freedom for granted. If you love America defend it today by getting informed and taking this country back for Americans. We WILL prevail because Americans aren't going to put up with this shit any longer. The time is now.

This one show explains everything going on. It will change your life when you see how the mainstream media is manipulating us like cattle using the political Left Vs Right paradigm. Download the podcasts and listen.

Here's my take on it. Don't be afraid to speak out as we are all on some type of list by now:

You have to understand that free speech on the net is about to be clamped down on in America -mainland China/Syria style. Get the sunglasses and spread the word before it's too late. Learn to spot/ignore government paid trolls.

The high unemployment rates, ever expanding national debt, government bailouts and interventions in the internal affairs of Moslem countries started under Bush have all continued under Obama. The only thing he has done that is not "more of the same" is Obomneycare and he borrowed that one from Romney.

Have you not noticed this arab spring thing? Obama is much more reckless in the Moslem world from Yemen to Egypt to Libya to Syria to Iran to... and in spite of his lies we are still in both Iraq and Afghanistan/Pakistan. Way to breed terrorists accross the board.

Hey moron Boehner, "Let's not kid ourselves"

We are already over the cliff. Stop the charade. The plunge happened when our Debt to GDP ratio hit 101.5% in May.

It's game over boys and girls. They are not going to save you and they can't.

Anyone who believes these idiots that caused the problem can fix the problem need some serious self examinations.

Make sure you got your guns, food, gold and silver, because it is going to be a bumpy ride.

Debt to GDP ratio was 112% at the end of WWII.

We survived.

Jeb Bush? Yeah, right.

As long as he doesn't follow in the footsteps of his
daddy and his brother who together contributed around
$10 trillion to our federal deficit.

Oh, and no phony, trumped-up wars either.

Just what this country needs, another Bush! You are a glutton for punishment.
One Bush (Idiot-in-Chief #43) was largely responsible for the problems you're complaining about. Be thankful Obama prevented total financial disaster.

Obama is a financial disaster along with the dems who passed CMA and pushed fannie/fredie, meathead. Biggest cost to US jobs, union and entitlements, 17 failed jobs and green energy programs, both dem supported. Obama exteneded the Bush tax cuts which even he said prevented the recession from getting deeper.
The only thing saved the country was the election of 2010. The re-electioin of the republican house, even in counties that obama won should tell even you something!

The terroists attacked many times while clinton was in office, so he attacked Mt. Carmel. Whew, that really helped didn't it? If it's left up to you socialists, there will be no more businesses, clown.

Before the Bush Straw Man was put in the White House unemployment in America was 4%. Under Bush unemployment in America shot up to 7.8%, where was, and remains under Obama.

You don't see a reason we are in the Middle East, I never seen a reason to deploy to the Middle East?

Gerrymandering prevails! The House of Representative Democrats won half a million more popular votes than the Republicans in 2012.

The top income earners in America never experienced the economic constraints of the recession. They simply cut their labor force and continued to experience exceptional profits the last 10 years.

This forum sounds and acts just like Congress and our president.

Point fingers and blame and follow the party line and bring no solutions to the table unless you can put your name on it and it panders to your political base.

2009-2010.....Blame the other administration
2009-2010.....Democratic controlled House and Senate and White House, nothing accomplished
No federal budget.
2010-1012...Campaign and vilify the other party
2012-2013...America votes to continue doing nothing but keeping a handout to the federal gov't.

I guess we are fine with $3.30 a gallon gas?
I guess we are satisfied with 8%+ unemployment?
I guess it has become more profitable and personally rewarding to collect unemployment and food stamps than it is to work?

I guess learning how to navigate the unemployment line and the welfare office and collect foods stamps are necessary traits we are going to need to teach our children. Since that's the only thing mom and dad really know how to do anymore. That and make babies they don't intend to care for unless they receive outside aid.

I say hit the gas and floor it for the fiscal cliff and while were at it pull the pin on a grenade and sit on has we go over. Enjoy

So what you're saying is you are blaming yourself. Instead of pointing the finger at Congress and the President. Because if you're not then you're a hypocrite. And your "solution" is do nothing.

Gotcha. I agree. You ARE to blame.
