    Are you expecting me to argue that wouldn't likely be full of rhetoric also?

    P.S. I never did get an answer to my question it seems.

    Meh, what to one just seems like effective speaking, to another it is an accurate description of our situation and what we need to do.

    P.S. I never did get an answer to my question it seems.
    What question was that?

    It wasn't directed specifically towards you if it appeared that way. Post 136.

    Your question was directed at Blue State. What "money" are you referring to?

    People like you claiming it's the Right Wing that harms the Middle Class! This is just one sure sign our Education System really HAS failed miserably.
    What the hell are you talking about? My post said the middle class along with the poor are this countrys saving grace!

    Re: Obama sees 'make or break' time for middle class

    People are still buying this American dream crap? I thought we moved past that after the 60's and 70's.

    Hmmm... on second thought, maybe we should make a new law that requires government to install white picket fences on the property of anyone who wants it.

    Maybe we should stop talking rhetoric and pretending like we don't know what the source of our economic problems are. Obama knows them, so does the rest of Congress. As long as we keep pretending that economic depression is not happening, or that hardships are due to the reasons constantly outlined in these vague, amorphous political speeches, our country is going to continue going down the tubes.

    Maybe I should stay in Canada. It's colder but the government isn't as obtuse.
