Dear Comrade Kerry,
In February 2007, when the terrible, evil George W. Bush was president, there were 2,427,000 more jobs than there are today.
In February 2007, when the terrible, evil George W. Bush was president, there were 5,167,000 fewer unemployed.
Theres more money in the system, going to fewer people than ever before.
The average American cant afford to buy a new car now. Thanks GM/Obama.
The average American is watching as home prices climb for rich Americans, but stagnate for everyone else.
Top tier homes are selling- and have been selling since Obama became pope- outpacing middle tier and lower tier homes.
The rest of us have to make due with home prices that equal those seen in 1894 Thats 1894 not, 1994.
Whether real or manufactured by record-low foreclosures, bank supply withdrawals, and fed-subsidized cash REO-to-rent trades, writes Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge, the sad truth is that jobs (and the GDP-enhancing multiplier effect that they create) are just not coming. Even Bob Shiller prefers the potential for 4% gains in stocks over housing risk in the medium-term as he points out that - inflation-adjusted - house prices are back at levels first seen in 1894... now that is a long-term investor.
And just because the Dows making new highs, you think everything is wonderful. What happened toOccupy Wall Street?
This is a system that was deliberately crafted by your buddy BHO.
Congrats Comrade Kerry!
Youre right: In America, you in particular, have a right to be stupid.

Dear Comrade Doctor,
Yes, this is the standard response that you give when anyone points out that your heroes dont quite live up to the ideals that they supposedly embody: Everyone does it.
Spoken like the true union stooge that you are.
Stealing is OK as long as each side gets their cut.
Im not sure what political point that you are trying to make is, but Im of the opinion that self-dealing amongst our political class is the worst of all possible crimes. Its the thing that has done the most to undermine the credibility of our American system in the last two decades.
Take, for example, Obamas real estate deal with Tony Rezko.
Obama was paid off on a real estate deal by Illinois fundraiser Tony Rezko, even though Rezko was already facing indictment for political corruption.
The deal only happened because Obama was a United States Senator at the time. As Obama told the Chicago Tribunes editorial board when he threw himself on their mercy saying it was a bone-head mistake, he was already having a hard time buying the house without the cash sweetener that Rezko brought to the table.
Obama knew that Rezko was bad news, but he did the deal anyway knowing: 1) the hometown paper would give him a break, slapping him for poor judgment but not veniality; 2) the party of the people, the Democrats, instead of holding their own to high standards decided a long time ago that they would hold their leaders to no standards at all, thinking it the same thing.
Morals and ethics and such are just for us little people.
Harry Reid never spent a day working for anyone but the government but yet has an estimated net worth of between $3 million and $6 million.
And thats not all.
As Senate Majority Leader, Reid dumped his holdings in energy companies in 2008, right before the energy market crashed and bought healthcare stocks with the proceeds. Within 6 months Reid was heavily involved in re-writing healthcare laws.
You want to get the money out of politics? Then get politicians out of the business of regulating everything.
Living under different laws than the rest of us is so ingrained in our national leadership, that it seems they hardly give it a second thought.
The present era of incredible rottenness is not Democratic, wrote Mark Twain, it is not Republican, it is national.
And thats the paradox that all of us must grapple with seriously if we wish to preserve both our free markets and our free people.

You go John Ransom. Liberalism is a disease, a mental disorder.
