Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.
Someone is WRONG on the internet! -XKCD
I think one thing we all need to remember is that most, not all, but most people posting on this website are going to say things are better than they were 3 years ago. Someone who is worse off, struggling to feed their family, struggling to pay the bills, is not going to have the time or inclination to get on the internet and post about politics. I could be wrong, just my opinion.
I will say some things are better, some are worse. As a Christian, its very inconsiderate of me to doubt the path my Lord has taken me on. That would mean I doubt His will for my life.
However, I can comment on the direction and path of others lol. I will say that our gov't has leveled out it's craziness in preparation for the elections. I can't remember the last time so many controversies hit at the same time though. Trayvon Martin, the Secret Service, the GSA trips, the numerous incidents in Afghanistan, it's been crazy. I would say I'm better off than I was 3 years ago. I would say the country in general is much worse.

I don't think there is an imbalance in this forum, I have seen many, many 'conservatives' post in many, many threads. Perhaps your fellow 'conservatives' are just ignoring you? Seems a possibility...
Perhaps 'conservative' enthusiasum is much lower than moderate, progressive, liberal outlook.
I am better off now than 3 years ago mostly because after BushII I figured no one could stop another great depression. That we are not makes me feel 122% better.
I don't see Willard doing any better for your 'shipmates'. He doesn't have a lot of empathy for anyone below NASCAR Owner.
I'm surprised NP is so concerned about his 'shipmates' that fail to plan for their retirement like he did. He has shown utter distain for those who fail to plan in the past.
I doubt anyone really thinks we can put humpty Dumpty back together in 3 years, it took decades to remove enough jinga sticks to do the damage done.
Don't you do that with gas prices, though?You can't figure it half way my friend......
I mean, it's not like we didn't see more than $4 a gallon 4 years ago (July of 2008), but when you talk about it, it's the magical January 2009 number which was caused by the tanking of the economy that happened in October of 2008 (read: before Obama was even elected).
As I said in another thread, if you want to see cheaper gas, root for another economic collapse.

I guess this thread didn't turn into the "Obama Hatefest" you seem to be aiming at.
Sorry to add to your disappointment but I and my family are doing a lot better then we were 3 years aqo.
My primary resturant posted it's best year in profits last year,and this quarters profits has been the best since opening in 1994.My 2 other resturants have shown steady growth for the last 3 years,and I am about to open up a fourth one in Vegas,this coming August.My catering company gearing up for what looks like to be a very busy summer.
Thanks to my stock broker my investments and stocks are doing nicely.
Me and my (2nd) wife (first one was killed by a drunk driver in 96) are just about to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary in June and we plan to renow our wesdding vows.
My eldest daughter gave birth to twins last year,the middle daughter is about to graduate Le Cordon Bleu in Paris,and my youngest is gping to Tulane Medical next year.
My wife's medical practice is doing nicely.She broke her leg playing raquetball a couple of months bac,but the leg is healing nicely and the cast should come off in a couple of weeks.
I've also lost 50 pounds and I quit smoking 2 years ago.
I attribute my family and I's prosperity and well being to our hard work and careful planning.
Obama and his administration had nothing to do with it.

MUCH better now dispite the rightwing efforts to keep sticking it up my ass.
We won't get fooled again. (At least not for a few more years until everyone forgets what turmoil the GOP causes. But it will only take 2-4 years to remind us again. by now you would have think we already should have learned.)
And the beat goes on. Life is GREAT in America. Thank you President Obama.

Diplomacy is the art of saying 'nice doggy" until you can find a gun.
my life gets better and better... and has been getting better, year in and year out, since the early 90's.
no credit (or blame) for my lot in life goes to any politician or political party though...none of them had any real impact on my choices.
I don't care if Jesus is the Prez, or Attila the Hun... i'm going to do my thing, and i'm going to succeed...
that's a philosophy i've held for many decades, and will continue to hold until i exit the pool.
