Bush may have done a service to us all. The eight years gave us lay offs and unemployment not seen since the great depresion, wars and attrocities commited in the name of advancing american multi corporate agenda and white Christianity, we saw the rich get richer and the poor become even more poor, we heard slogans such as jobless recovery, strategery, modern economy, trickledown effect Ad nauseum. The values of Bush are the values of the capitalist system, another word for fascism. the eight years of Bush proves capitalism is a failed system. We see more debt, unemployment and 100 years of war. When Bush started his first term I was also confident. I had a good job as a consultant with a firm in Palo Alto, where I worked for twelve years. I had a house middle class wage a dog and a car, then Bush took reigns, gave tax cuts to the rich guys and I got laid off and replaced by a Yemenese to cut labor. Why didn't the tax cut save my job? After this I lost my house my savings and my car and I went to work at Burger King. Then I lost that job because they began laying off workers there! I was homeless for 3 years, I lived in alot of places and I was chronically unemployed. I now live in a crappy studio apartment in Duluth Minnesota and I work as a janitor for seven dollars twenty cents an hour. Four years of university, working hard and saving didn't pay off. I tried sending my resume to other countries but they didn't want me. Part of the reason I believe is because I was homeless in a shelter. Lots of buinsesses discriminate against the homeless even those who used to be homless! Im still sending out resumes like crazy everywhere! They all tell me they have no openings at all. Didn't the policy of Bush and the republicans supposed to stop this from happening? The truth is that Bush's tax cuts and pandering to big buisness didnt create jobs. We had losses except for 2003 and 2004. The only jobs that are being created now are low wage jobs that pay little and they are all being taken by immigrants and other people who have no jobs! We have also had our national debt sky rocket under Bush. Capitalism really is a failed economy. We are going to go the way of the soviets. Dont believe me? Look at the people out of a job looking for work, look at the people homeless, WE took 2 trillion dollars out of Social security to pay these cuts, and then we cut welfare benefits for the poor and the disabled! America even downplays unemployment and homelessness! I remember when I was at the Union Gospel Mission this guy told me how he had been out of work for over a year. One of the reasons he couldn't get work is because homeless people are discriminated against in the workforce. the government helps them by screening out and excluding those who are residents in shelters or who have been out of a job for more than one year to help keep them down and keep unemployment levels down. That way Bush and the republicans look good and capitalism looks good. That is life under capitalism, the worst economy ever! Even worse than socialism! There is only person who can save us! Barack Obama! When Barack Obama is in charge, he is going to end the tax cuts for all the rich folks sending jobs to other countries, and bring our troops home. He will bring life giving change to america. Barack Obama can do it! Obama will require big buisness to obey mandates to keep jobs in and make new jobs raise wages or lose their tax cuts. (I think we should get rid of them anyway.) Obama will also impose pricing caps to keep them from cheating. Also Obama will criminalize wrong attitudes towards, minorities the weak and the poor. When I was homeless all the compasionate conservatives said I should be killed just because I had no home and no job. That should not be allowed anymore. Obama will also lock up Social Securiy and put more money into that and domestic programs. He will also end the fascist war in Iraq, restore the constitution and habeus corpus and bring the troops home.
“Criminalize wrong attitudes”. STFU!
ZOT YOU YOU IDIOT!
Even worse than the "Worst Economy of 50 years" (Bush I 1992)?
Same rhetoric. Must be a presidential election year.
What has that Democrat majority Congress done FOR the economy?
Revealing your thinking process tells us why you’re employed in the job you’re employed.
IBTZ as well.
Another loser who doesn’t know what a paragraph is.
In before Kitties?
rich ppl stealed ur parragraf tagz
Earth to sometimes:
Do you enjoy reading other peoples rants without the benefit of paragraph breaks? Paragraphs are your friends! I know you want to leave FR readers in the dustbin of history but don’t throw away paragraph breaks along with us. Paragraphs will make it easier for you to communicate with your pals when you all inherit the Earth.
Well that's because Congress mandated an $8/hour minimum wage.
Maybe if you learn Spanish and are willing to work below minimum wage you can get a job in this country.
Don’t you know how to do paragraphs?
Did I make it? I just saw this when I was logging on!
Awesome! Consider this stolen.
Or maybe I'll just use up to four words from it and avoid paying you $12.50
Did I make it? I just saw this when I was logging on!
Apparently not. I guess after the third or fourth time of the boss having to stop him from reaching into the hot oil to get that last french fry the boss decided he was too much trouble.
Then I lost that job because they began laying off workers there!
