The BIG problem that people dont understand or comprehend is what I informed everyone for the last 2 years.

If you VOTE for a Liberal Democrat you voted yourself, family member, out of a job.

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME THAT A POOR PERSON HIRED A WORKER??????????

Get it?

Get informed and if you value your job or carrier you will need to take a good look and reevaluate your voting practices.

Liberal Democrats like Obomo, Gillibrand, Clinton, Schumer and the NYS senate and congress are out to suck the blood taxes from your paycheck and family.

Just take a long look at what's happened since Obomo got elected. Business are laying off all over NYS because of the financial mess and deficit and Taxing business more and more and more.

Plane and simple.. If you lost your job you can thank your Liberal Democrat that STILL gets PAID by YOUR Taxes as YOU are unemployed and trying to keep food in your kids mouths.

But, then again... It doesnt matter how much I inform you that voting Liberal Democrat is screwing yourself because Liberalism IS a PROVEN Mental Disorder and take a look around you...

The End!

Thats sad. The lord works in wonderful ways.

The reason ALL of this happened...the housing problem...the banks...everything...was because of the 21st century Robber Baron mentality I warned about years ago.

You have pretty much every company owner spending far beyond their means on stuff like 100K cars, 20 million dollar summer "camps" and not investing any money back into their companies for advertising or paying their employees good money.

I saw this happen in nearly every company..from the local restaurant to the fortune 500 companies.

The same jobs that paid $15-$25 an hour 30 years ago now pay $10-$15 today.

We created a fragile system where the expenses and interests were huge (we used to hang people for charging over 20% interest...for good reason!)and the pay and benefits were shrinking.

All it took was a spike in gas prices to completely eat up what little money workers had start the Domino's of our economy falling.

Banks, CEO's, and both parties are to blame. They continue to get huge bonuses and pay raises allowing them to not even have to live if the "REAL world" so they had no comprehension of it and didn't care to fix it.
