Yea sure, whatever.
Have you ever tried any intellectual, progressive, forward thinking before?
He seems smart enough to know he's in the first group, and to recognize the obvious superiority of the second, so maybe there's some hope for him, too.

Caring what people think of you is childish. I have an opinion, you have one too. If I can state mine, then you can state yours. I find that sometimes that is an excuse to not speak out for what you believe in. I did not vote for Obama. Skin color had nothing to do with it. Politics carried no weight with my decision. I dont trust him. He has to many loose ends that didn't get tied up. Also taxing the rich is down right crazy. When you tax the rich what really happens? The price of their product goes higher, thus more expensive for the working class to buy, or they fold or they leave this country. EIther way folks, the working man gets the bill. We need to grow, manufacture, design etc. our own stuff. We need to get jobs going for the people. We MUST understand that businesses are struggling too. If you tax them. They will fold. When they fold, many will loose jobs. Taxing the rich will shut the country down. Tourism is great, but when a state or local gov. depends on it (like Bunc.Co.) they are destined to fall.

Through all of our post back and forth I knew we had something in common. You need to bring your Mommy over to my grandma's house and they would have a good old time discussing Roosevelt. I made a mistake of saying something negative about Roosevelt and you need ed bar the doors with she got finished with me. It's all my mommy and daddy's fault I don't understand hard times. She told them not give me everything..on and on.
I hope Obama will take the steps, to surround himself with intelligent people (both Democrat and Republican) and bring this nation back to prosperity. I do not feel know one person can change the nation without the help of all. At this point and time no matter who you supported in the Presidental election we need stand as one for our nation.
WOW! You got some nerve saying something negative about Roos E velt! LOL LOL
I thought I was the only one left that was raised like that.I talked to mama a few minutes ago and this is what she said. Remember she is 90 and sharp!
We need to sit back and be quiet a little bit. He said he'd reading up on some of RoosEvelts stuff, now that gives us some hope she said. LOL If he'll just take what he read to heart, he'll turn this thing around. Yep! She said, since I heerd he was studying the best president ever, I ain't half as worried about things!! LOL What a hoot she is !
PS She said if they had a run RoosEvelts shoes for president, they'd a probably got elected. LOL
