    this poll is exactly what is wrong with America! Your all to busy playing the blame game and taking sides instead of actually paying attention to whats going on. Honestly don't care who gets elected next year I juust hope who ever does can actually govern without all this party politics BS.

    Then we need to throw the bums out. Virtually all of them.

    Both are cancers upon the American people. I said that in 2003 back on Whistlestopper and it's just as true now as it is then. I take it you're working with the third party initiative? IMO, if that actually gets off the ground a puts a sizable portion of candidates into Congress, we'll see some real changes real fast.

    That's true. Remember how Navy was bashing Obama over casualties in Afghanistan during the Afghanistan surge? Same ****.

    and while your argument may have some merit, some can honestly say Obama an Reid are so bad for America engaging in such actions is -in the long run-better for America
    Obama and Reid are no more better or worse than Mitchell or Boehner. However, Mitchell edges them out in IMO by a hair. When you make it your #1 goal to get rid of Obama, that's not good.

    Getting Americans back to work? Not as important
    Getting the economy back? Not as important

    It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that the GOP is deliberately stalling the economy to reduce Obama's chances in 2012. The voters should punish them for that. They are putting politics above people, that should be a cardinal sin for public officials.

When I deposit my money for safekeeping I am no more loaning it to the bank than I am loaning my coat to the coat check. It is mine, I am entrusting it for safekeeping, and I do not expect that the bailee is going to turn around and use the money for his own money-making purposes.
    Then don't use a bank? And do they not keep all of the checking account on hand (I am not sure about that one)?

The repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act in 1999 was a precursor to the financial speculation leading to the housing bust and a deep U.S. recession. HR 1489- Prudent Banking Act of 2011 separates commercial banking from investment banking and would once again prevent banks from doing business on wall street, and the other way around.
