Another definition of fascism is a state that allows private business to exist, but under heavy government regulation. So who closed down all those auto dealerships, had the CEO fired, closed down roll-your-own smoke shops, closed down Gulf drilling, forced banks to stop charging fees to irresponsible customers, harassed Gibson guitars? Who did all that (and more) again?

Right now, the US is the closest we've ever been to Communism in the history of our country.

XXX, no one can touch Bureau Of Labor and Statistics numbers. Nixon tried and he coudn't. Go to the site and see. You should be glad we are recovering, albeit not fast enough. You seem like you are rooting for the country to fail, Obama aside.
Obama is already a goner no matter what happens this next month. I want honesty and not some made up figures that don't match up to actual figures. We are not recovering yet. A recovery takes place when all numbers are in a positive direction. That's not happening now. If by some chance DumBama remains in office and Republicans can't stop those tax increases next year, by this time next year, unemployment will be over 10% no matter how they try to fudge the numbers.

tab....Let alone millions. Why do the democrates see what he is doing, buying votes is illigal,
but the dems hand was out, take a phone.
How many illigal way can you win an election,
ask a democrat...They have pull out on the stops.
TO even tell you what you have seen, YOU didn't.
We did see Biden, no matter what you say.
Giving illigals photo ID to vote is surly honest

I'm sure they are begging now. It's just that applying unions will never solve the problem. All it would do is cause the companies to fold up or leave the country. That's what's been happening the last few decades leaving us to where we are today.
Let me put it this way: let's say the Democrats take leadership in all branches of government after next election. They then make a law where every business has to be unionized. What do you think the outcome will be? Higher paying jobs? Don't kid yourself.
There is an old theory out there that states every action causes a reaction. This is a theory liberals, Democrats and yes, unions hate. They want to believe that when you take an action against somebody with money or a corporation, everything will remain the same and in fact, only get better because there will be no reaction.
Nearly all actions cause a reaction. That's just a fact. When your gas station increases the price of their gasoline, you look for stations with a lower price. If you are a tobacco user and have an increased tax of $150.00 per month, that's $150.00 per month of residual income you will not circulate in society. If government makes a law that your bank can no longer charge irresponsible people for being late on their credit card payment or overdraft on their checking account, they are (and are) going to recoup that money from responsible paying customers. If Time Warner increases your cable bill, you will likely look at satellite television or a competitor like Wow Cable. It's the nature of the beast.
Warren Buffet is not in a struggle with the IRS over paying too much in taxes. Bill Gates off shored some of his operations to escape American taxation. John Kerry docked his boat out of state to avoid paying state taxes, and these are all liberal people shouting that the wealthy need to pay more in taxes. But as I stated, every action causes a reaction, and liberals are not exempt.
You just will not stop blaming the union boogeyman for forcing jobs out of the country. It's greed. That's it. What's the reason Apple doesn't pay their Apple store employees a competitive rate? An Apple store employee can bring in $500,000 worth of sales and get paid $11/hr. That's laughable. Apple store workers have it easy when compared to the slave camps Apple is tied to overseas. The company makes a ridiculous amount of money and pays like crap. Is that the fault of some union boogeyman in any country Apple employees people?

The banks were basically robbing people. Why are you sticking up for financial institutions that practice shady policies? I don't care that they have been called out on their shady practices. If you are sick of banks, credit unions are an excellent option. Boo hoo. The banks can't nickle and dime people with overdraft fees so they are looking for other ways to suck blood. Just close your account and deal with a credit union. Hey look, just like your action equals reaction theory.

I hope the anti-union people get their wish. Let the rich win. Screw overtime. Let the peasants work 12 hours with two unpaid breaks. Screw vacation days. Screw regulations that make the work place safe. Complying costs the billionaires and millionaires yacht money. You lost a finger working your job? So what, get back to work. If you don't, you're fired.

Sooner or later, people will be back forming unions like they did last time the rich had full control of the workplace. When people finally realize corporate greed is behind jobs leaving and people being paid wages they can't live on, they will want unions back. They can always read history books and find out how people did it last time around. Wait....the anti-union people don't read history. lol

Has anyone noticed the similarites between the democratic party and the Taliban? The Taliban shoots a youg girl for speaking out against them. A young US girl is tossed out of her classroom for wearing a Romney Tee-shirt. The Taliban committs terrorist acts, the democratic party lies about terrorist acts, the Taliban use videos to promote their cause, the Democratic party uses MSNBC to promote their cause. The Taliban doesnt like any other views, the democratic party doesnt like anyone who dissagrees with them. The Taliban does not tolerate other points of view, the Democratic party doesnt tolerate any other views. The similarities are astonishing. The Taliban have a chosen one, The prophet Muhammad who they follow blindly, The Democratic party has their chosen one,the media darling Obama, who they follow blindly. The Democratic party needs to change its name to the Talicrats.
You do realize that the Republican party is a better example of a Taliban-like presence in the United States. Republicans are the party with the religious nuts who think the earth is 6,000 years old. They are the party that wants to teach "creation science" in school when kids should be learning math and real science. They are the ones who worry about spirits being in zygotes and want to prevent women from taking day after pills. They are the ones with the people who are all to eager to drop bombs on people without any proof of wrongdoing. They are the ones who are not ashamed to be tied to torture.

And look how they treat vets when you guys get home. They love to thank you for your service by cutting back on services for vets. They are quick to send you to war, but they are even quicker to tell you to p@ss off when you get back. At least the democrats pretend to care.

Along with people who are not rich, military people are definitely another demographic who should not be supporting Republicans.

So what you are saying is that when we elect a fascist dictator, we should be forced to quit using our banks? Do you know how un-American that sounds? How about this: elect a President that will stay out of the private sector and allow them to call their own shots.

Here we go again with the action-reaction theory. Banks didn't stop charging those fees, they just charge them to responsible people. That was the whole idea. We all know that irresponsible people vote Democrat, so DumBama made sure he took care of his voters. Now they are nickel and diming responsible people instead of the irresponsible. But that is the Democrat mantra, reward irresponsibility and penalize responsibility.

Yeah, that is the MILLION JOB A MONTH HOLE that your boy Bush, you uneducated slob, pushed the USA into AND which Romney/Ryan/Antichrist 2012 promises to push us back into. God I hate your stupidity and you are an ugly troll to boot.

If you want the Administration to get anything done, they must work with all - Republicans & Democrats. Obama has not and has not even attempted to. As the Governor of Massachusetts, Romney did. Democratic legislators in Massachusetts state this and state he was a good Governor.

Wow. A Fascist dictator? Seriously? How exactly is he the first president to figure out how to beat the checks and balances that the U.S. government has in place? That's funny.

Banks are crooks. End of story. Join a credit union and you'll be fine. There are plenty of great ones. Stop defending your precious banks and look around.

Banks actually penalized the poor, working-class stiffs. Those are the people more likely to get overdrafts. The way they processed deposits and withdrawals was set up to maximize the chances of overdrafts occurring. A lot of working-class, Republican stiffs got caught in the crossfire. Remember, irresponsible people are less likely to have bank accounts. They use check cashing places. LOL The banks preyed on the very people who are sticking up for them. I find that hilarious.

Obama sure wasn't protecting the minority vote by going after the banks. Have you seen all the check cashing places in minority neighborhoods? So who was he protecting?

Did you ever think maybe McConnell's comments were made because of Obama's failure to work with Congress for 2 years!

Obama has not had a budget for 3 years! This is outrageous. This is proof he has not and will not work with all of Congress.

Congress hasnt made a budget in three years that is their responsiblity.

United States budget process

The process of creating the budget for the United States government is known as the budget process. The framework used by Congress to formulate the budget was established by the Budget and Accounting Act of 1921,[1] the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974,[2] and by other budget legislation.

Prior to 1974, Congress had no formal process for establishing a coherent budget. When newly-elected President Richard Nixon began to refuse to spend funds that the Congress had allocated, Congress needed a more formal means by which to challenge him. The Congressional Budget Act created the Congressional Budget Office and directed more control of the budget to CBO and away from the President's Office of Management and the Budget. The Act passed easily as the administration was embroiled in the Watergate scandal and unwilling to provoke Congress.

Boy you are grasping at straws, a childhood prank thats never been proven over 40 years ago, Homosexuality wasnt even tolerated by the democrats back then, Obama is going to steal your votes Ohio voters, he will be a lame duck president if re-elected. He will have no use for you after if he wins. What motivation will he have to do Ohio any good after he wins? Nothing!!! Just like he has done for the rest of the country.
