Commentary: Black Unemployment Is Even Worse Than You Think The national Black unemployment rate is bad enough, but in certain parts of America, 13.6 percent is nothing.

He delivered change, that's all I have now is change.

They Tax our earnings, Tax our property, tax our gas, tax our food, tax our water, tax our clothes, tax or medicine, takes our entertainment, tax our toys, tax our education, tax our roads, tax tax tax.

Over 90% of your income is GONE from the start!

Then they lower interest rates so any money you have in the bank doesn't earn any interest.

You have 1000.00 in the bank @ 1.97% interest you make 10.97 on it over a year IF it sits in the bank.

Then you have a credit card and you spend 1000.00 @ 18% interest, that equals out to 180.00 a year.

1180.00 owed 1010.97 made. We are being ripped off at every turn. Then you still owe another 100,000.00 for every man, woman, and child for the next how many generations to pay off the current debt?.

LMAO wake up America.

I agree with you that the gop is not conservative, and look we have rhinos, and yes young people are very gullible politically, I voted for carter when young, and it did it bring misery with double digit interest rates for many homeowners...

If I may steal and adjust a quote from one of the best sci-fi shows made, Babylon5:

"The Constitution was our last, best hope for peace... It failed. But, in the Year of the War against the Globalists, it became something greater: our last, best hopeĀ… for victory."

Doesn't the tea party endorse the gop candidate? You haven't grown out of it, you're still pretty gullible if you think romney will be a change from what we've gotten so far from the gop.
