    Anyway around it, we're limping along. It's in the right direction though.



    Under current circumstances, don't know anybody else would do better.
    No other western country is. In fact most of the free world is in a "austerity" driven double dip recession. Romney wants us to join them.

    I enjoy you and others on here posts though. Like I mentioned it's fascinating.
    HARK!!! did i hear a dog whistle?
    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

    Hmmm, I guess you are losing a grasp on reality!! The only reason I believe it is because it is TRUE!

    Socialist utopians?
    Read their words!

    Synthesizer for the Muslim Brotherhood?
    Read their words!

    Destroy the nation's greatness?
    Read their words!

    You've not only drunk the kool aid but you've chugged it.
    Drank* Haha, chugging kool-aid is to IGNORE corruption, not acknowledge it!

    I enjoy you and others on here posts though. Like I mentioned it's fascinating.
    You can laugh all you want! But I will call out these people for what they really are! I am not ashamed, because I know that it is true! Does that mean I want them to be corrupt? No! I actually hope I'm wrong sometimes, but they keep proving me otherwise!

    Maybe I am. Maybe 9/11 was planned by Bush, Aliens did crash in Roswell, the Pyramids were built by Aliens civilizations, the Illuminati left clues in works of art, and JFK really killed by a group led by LBJ.
