Our economy has basically tanked ever since we went to an "Information-based" society. Since NAFTA back in the early 90's most of our manufacturing base has moved out of the country. We now have "retrained" our workers, so there's no journeyman base to train apprentices to manufacture goods. Other than the Louisville Slugger, try to find any sporting goods or electronics that are made in the United States. And remember, this all started with NAFTA.
The government is going to rape us for over $700,000,000 to bail out AIG, because the company is "too big to all to fail". I'm sorry, but if it's too big to be allowed to fail, it's too damn big to start with! By buying this out, does that mean that the government will be foreclosing on your home?
According to "common knowledge", Republicans are all fat cats while Democrats are the poor disenfranchised. So how come the Democrats can raise and spend tens of millions (at least) more each month than the Republicans? Oh, right - most of Hollywood, most of the music industry, etc.
And finally, Since his Taxes = Patriotism speech, has anyone seen Joe Biden? Do they have him tied up in a safe house? Did they have him go hunting with Cheney? A friend told me the latest rumor is that immediately after the vice presidential debate, Biden is going to come up with the creeping crud, drop out and Hillary will step in.
That could be a giggle!
