In review some of the comments here, it's obvious there's desperation in the Air.
I read a statement by a poster the other day on these threads... I found this to be a profound statement.
"Republicans are addicted to lying"
In grade school Ms. Wilson, my Third Grade teacher used this mantra.
" if you lie you will steal, and if you steal you will Kill, and if you Kill you'll never amount to anything"
A word of advice to the Republicans posting.... stop lying.....
Obama must be the new definition of republican.

Yesterday one of my friends that is a attorney for the Obama administration resigned. He told me that he had made a huge mistake in supporting Obama and that Obama and his stafff were to MOST inept people he had ever worked with. He is moving back to CHICAGO to spread the word.

I totally agree with this assessment.

America is to large and diverse for two political parties. It's evident that the two choices are purchased and their votes and representation are packed and paid.

The cost of the two invasions and new security measures are cripling America. The errosion of our Constitutional Guarantees has not been worth the cost. A look about any Air Port in America reveals just how we have regressed into a police state.

Immigration has to be addressed. The cost of deporting 12 Million illegal immigrants around the globe is going to be extraordinary. Something and very comprenhensive has to be done.

Lily - Independents are a growing segment of the voting
American populace now approaching 30%. If independents
are those who do not identify themselves as Republican
or Democrat, how did 30% of the voting public become
Libertarian?
Why is it do difficult to understand or appreciate that
a large segment of us are simply turned off by the choices
that have been available to us. We are equally turned
off by the nanny-state "We know what is best for you"
attitude as we are the "Lets go build a nation somewhere"
attitude of the neoconservatives. Those are two lousy
choices, but that does not make independent voters
Libertarians who suggest that "We push the envelope, but
we just don't mail it because the post office is socialist."
The evidence is clear from the election results virtually
everywhere. Where are Libertarians pulling 30% of the
votes?
The thing to note is that when a third party or non-partisan
movement becomes popular it is almost always appropriated
by one of the major parties .... usually the one out of
power.
I posted opinions about reducing the size of government
by concluding the military operations in Iraq and
Afghanistan and making deep cuts in American troop
presence in Korea and Europe. That could just as easily
make me a Kucinich-style Democrat.
In 2000 Bush campaigned in part under the "no nation building"
mantra because Al Gore refused to repudiate Clinton's support
of our involvement in Bosnia. I supported Bush because I
believed nation-building to be wrong and foolhardy. After 9/11
Bush became a nation-builder and I withdrew my support.
I do not believe it is our job or commission to "nation-build"
or interfere in the political or social processes of any other
nation because I do not believe they should interfere in mine.
If that makes me a Libertarian am I forced to conclude that
that is because BOTH Republicans and Democrats do?
Its a significant point because we are spending millions-by-the-
minute all over the world trying to force feed democracy or
representative government at the very least. I am not OK with
that. Are you?

Things should be getting better.

Real unemployment is still close to 17% and 20% of the jobs created were by government. What a mess.

The 9.9% number doesn't include people who have given up.

We have a long way to go and Obama's attacks on the system are keeping the economy down. We've spent trillions and all we're getting is more liberal debt.

Things should be much better by now. How much more debt is Obama going to shove on our kids?

You may have said it (and even think it), but it's false. Obama is a Left Wing Marxist, what I call a Modern Liberal/Progressive. He's anti-American.

You lefty's hate Bush so now all of a sudden you quote him?

Regardless, the quote is wrong:
http://www.factcheck.org/askfactcheck/did_pre...

"The report that Bush 'screamed' those words at Republican congressional leaders in November 2005 is unsubstantiated, to put it charitably."

"We judge that the odds that the report is accurate hover near zero. It comes from Capitol Hill Blue, a Web site that has a history of relying on phony sources, retracting stories and apologizing to its readers."

You've probably repeated it many times. Say your sorry for lying.

You're doin' a fine job, Brownie, I mean Obama!! A fine, fine job. Look at all those jobs you "created!" Outstanding "plan" you have, Mr. Obama. Those census workers really boosted the numbers.

Unemployment up to 9.9%- big deal!!! I'm sure you have other "plans" to get it back down. And after all, its all Bush's fault, and the "Party of No."

Democratic slaughter coming in November. 9.9% unemployment!!

Yet, The Kenyan had this "plan" (downloaded from when he ran):

Jumpstart the Economy
Enact a Windfall Profits Tax to Provide a $1,000 Emergency Energy Rebate to American Families:Barack Obama and Joe Biden will enact a windfall profits tax on excessive oil company profits to give American families an immediate $1,000 emergency energy rebate to help families pay rising bills. This relief would be a down payment on the Obama-Biden long-term plan to provide middle-class families with at least $1,000 per year in permanent tax relief.
Provide $50 billion to Jumpstart the Economy and Prevent 1 Million Americans from Losing Their Jobs: This relief would include a $25 billion State Growth Fund to prevent state and local cuts in health, education, housing, and heating assistance or counterproductive increases in property taxes, tolls or fees. The Obama-Biden relief plan will also include $25 billion in a Jobs and Growth Fund to prevent cutbacks in road and bridge maintenance and fund school repair - all to save more than 1 million jobs in danger of being cut.
Provide Middle Class Americans Tax Relief
Obama and Biden will cut income taxes by $1,000 for working families to offset the payroll tax they pay.
Provide a Tax Cut for Working Families: Obama and Biden will restore fairness to the tax code and provide 150 million workers the tax relief they need. Obama and Biden will create a new "Making Work Pay" tax credit of up to $500 per person, or $1,000 per working family. The "Making Work Pay" tax credit will completely eliminate income taxes for 10 million Americans.

Stooge "plan", continued:
Eliminate Income Taxes for Seniors Making Less than $50,000: Barack Obama will eliminate all income taxation of seniors making less than $50,000 per year. This proposal will eliminate income taxes for 7 million seniors and provide these seniors with an average savings of $1,400 each year. Under the Obama-Biden plan, 27 million American seniors will also not need to file an income tax return.
Simplify Tax Filings for Middle Class Americans: Obama and Biden will dramatically simplify tax filings so that millions of Americans will be able to do their taxes in less than five minutes. Obama and Biden will ensure that the IRS uses the information it already gets from banks and employers to give taxpayers the option of pre-filled tax forms to verify, sign and return. Experts estimate that the Obama-Biden proposal will save Americans up to 200 million total hours of work and aggravation and up to $2 billion in tax preparer fees.

Invest in the Manufacturing Sector and Create 5 Million New Green Jobs
Invest in our Next Generation Innovators and Job Creators: Obama and Biden will create an Advanced Manufacturing Fund to identify and invest in the most compelling advanced manufacturing strategies. The Fund will have a peer-review selection and award process based on the Michigan 21st Century Jobs Fund, a state-level initiative that has awarded over $125 million to Michigan businesses with the most innovative proposals to create new products and new jobs in the state.
Double Funding for the Manufacturing Extension Partnership: The Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) works with manufacturers across the country to improve efficiency, implement new technology and strengthen company growth. This highly-successful program has engaged in more than 350,000 projects across the country and in 2006 alone, helped create and protect over 50,000 jobs. But despite this success, funding for MEP has been slashed by the Bush administration. Barack Obama and Joe Biden will double funding for the MEP so its training centers can continue to bolster the competitiveness of U.S. manufacturers.
Invest In A Clean Energy Economy And Create 5 Million New Green Jobs: Obama and Biden will invest $150 billion over 10 years to advance the next generation of biofuels and fuel infrastructure, accelerate the commercialization of plug-in hybrids, promote development of commercial scale renewable energy, invest in low emissions coal plants, and begin transition to a new digital electricity grid. The plan will also invest in America's highly-skilled manufacturing workforce and manufacturing centers to ensure that American workers have the skills and tools they need to pioneer the first wave of green technologies that will be in high demand throughout the world.

In another sign that the recovery in the U.S. economy is taking hold, employers added significantly more jobs to payrolls in April, according to a government report released Friday.
There was a gain of 290,000 jobs in the month, up from a revised 230,000 jobs added in March. It was the largest number of jobs added to the labor force since March 2006.

I feel the same way. Calling someone antiamerican is just another version of the left wing name calling. When they have no logical response and they know they are wrong they take out these labels, just like the racist label.
In law school, the professors have a saying that is applicable:

When you have the facts on your side, you argue rationally. When you don't, you pound the table.

The Obamatrons are furiously pounding the table, calling any critics of Obama's failed promises and silly plans names, like unAmerican. LMAO.

These Obamatron Loyalists believe that political dissent, which is exactly what we are doing, is unAmerican.

I can call names too - their Nazi tactics will not discourage me in any way. In fact, I hope they ramp it up!
