    Seeing this is where most companies get their raw materials from I really quite confused .. I guess we need to bow down to the companies making these products that have only increased prices an average of 1.6 % over the last year .. and absorbing all those price increases so we the consumer aren't faced with higher prices ..


    what are the housing prices in your area compared to 2008?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Exactly. The one term Marxist president Obama increased the size of government. It is he who massively increased spending. It is his fault and it is his problem. Republicans need to walk away.

    President Bush set the stage for the one term Marxist president Obama. But Obama is no clone.

    What is right for the American people is to cut the size of government. It is not to raise taxes. It is to solely cut spending.

    If the Republicans just walk away on August 2nd, the new Independence Day, the one term Marxist president Obama will have to pay our debts and figure out what to cut. He will not get any more money.

    Personally, I love it. Now if only the Republican leadership will stand fast.

    Let us only hope this is the case. No compromise. Cut. Cut. Cut. Cut.

    Let us hope that the one term Marxist president Obama will stand fast. Then let's hope the Republicans also stand fast.

    What do we get? August 2nd we get the New Independence Day. The one term Marxist president Obama has to pay our debts. After that he cannot spend what the nation does not have. I love it.

    I just have to smile.

    The right answer is that the American people lose if taxes are raised. And conversely, the American people win if the size of government is cut. So let's cut and cut and cut.

    LOL. The nation wins if the Republicans just walk away. No voting is required. Just cut, cut, cut.
    The one term Marxist president has no options if the Republicans just walk away. So I hope they will talk and talk and talk but make no agreements to raise taxes.

    The let the one term Marxist president stew in his own juices.

    Then perhaps the best thing to do is to get the people who got the free lunch (meaning receiving benefits without paying taxes) to begin paying for those lunches. We have about half of Americans who do not pay any Federal income taxes. Let's broaden the tax base by adding them to the taxpayer rolls.
