I hope you're sleeping in this morning! I imagine that it was hard to sleep for most of us. :-(

Words of wisdom in that link! Actually, I started consolidating and cutting back several months ago. Now I am glad I did.

We have no idea what lies ahead, seat of the pants mgmt. can take the country almost anywhere.

Oh contraire....we DO KNOW what is coming...THE LOOTER/MOOCHER SOCIETY! They are fixing to be rewarded for every bad financial decision they ever made. Their homes, cars and credit cards, that are now in default, will be paided for with the monies of the ‘Forgotten Man’(that’s us).

Hide your wallets folks. Market already down 172 points.

I never owned a Slave. And what about my Grandpa who died fighting for their freedom? If God is punishing us because of slavery, my family should get some reparations for fighting against slavery.

It is a sad day-no doubt. I could not get on last night so watched TV. I have read the posts. It’s daylight now the birds are singing. It’s a sunny day in Ohio-quite warm. Life goes on folk. It’s an election. There will be another chance for congress in two years. In four years, there will be a chance to win back the presidency. We should support President Obama where we can...it won’t be easy, but maybe we can find some common ground and work hard to help the country. Times are really bad right now. We should at least try.

As many of you know, McCain was not my guy;however, considering the economic situation McCain ran a decent race. I don’t know of anyone who could have won for the GOP this year. Also, I am now in Ohio. Yes, two moves in a year-job transfers. I hope I can keep my job-praying hard.

President Bush (I like the guy don’t get me wrong-good man)hurt McCain in Ohio. For heavens sake, Bush kept pushing the Korean and Colombian trade agreements. Come on, the Mid West has been badly hurt by unfair trade agreements as have Pennsylvania, Indiana and the entire Mid West. North Carolina has a garment industry on the ropes as well. (any of you drive through Gary Indiana lately?) Many of my neighbors considered trade the most important issue. This is also combined with health care as most who lost manufacturing jobs have lost health insurance. The GOP is blamed for trade (yes I told them Clinton signed NAFTA).

I have to say, you can not take an entire region-the Mid West -and lose thousands of good jobs without serious problems. Warren Ohio looks like a third world country in some places. Youngstown is ...awful. It is not enough to tell people ‘these jobs are not coming back ‘ as McCain did in Michigan. They will not vote for you. The Midwest is going to be very difficult for the GOP until trade is addressed. You all know where I stand. All great countries need a manufacturing base.

In closing, I am deeply saddened by the outcome of this election, but we can reshape our party into something all Americans will want to support. We can win the hearts of minds of America. The future is bright. In the words of Arnold, ‘we will be back’.

Thanks for the post and sharing your views. Ohio is really screwed now that your state has helped to usher in socialism. Manufacturing is going to flee this country in record numbers. I am putting some of my money into ‘Big Liquor’ for the next 4 years....lol!!

The only jobs left really outside of the health industry is Auto, Just before the election, the financial channel announce that the feds had turned GM down for a bail out. Of course Wall street gets a bail out, but not main street. This hurt McCain badly. No really, it’s bad here. I spent ten years in Georgia. I came to the Mid-West last year (Wisconsin and now Ohio). I don’t know how the GOP held Ohio and the Midwest as long as they did really.

lol..if you knew me, you would know that I am about as far from a racist as one can get. But we are in for a ‘Looter’ society and it’s time to call it for what it is!!

Good News on the front though...when the economy goes into the toilet, the illegal immigrants will be flocking back across the border (just like they did when gas prices went through the roof). After all, why come to America, when it is no longer the land of opportunity?

Onward Christian Soldiers!!! It’s a sad and quiet unbelieveable outcome but we will become stronger. Hopefully we have something to work with four years from now.

Excellent point! I was in Silicon Valley during and after the Dot Bomb and US naturalized citizen engineers from India and China we're heading back home too. If we make it sound like its sinking, the 'rats will flee.
