Well said Mr. Peyton. Apparently Mr. Katrin has never served in the military and does not
understand that all the freedoms that he currently enjoys in America is due the the young men and
women has served or is currently serving in the military. Freedoms that allow him to comments
like he previously made concerning our military personnel. If it was not for "discarded working
class" he would not be able to make the idiotic comment that that he has so proudly made. I
severed in that Air Force and was proud to have the opportunity to serve my county. I served
so Mr. Katrin would have the freedom to make stupid comments to amuse himself.
What Mr. skylinefirepest forgot to mention was that the cost of the was not included in
the budget under the Bush administration. Mr. Obama was the first recent president to
include the cost of any war in the US budget. We are currently involved in three wars which
was started under the Bush administration with a declining tax base and no way to pay for
them. This declining tax base was and still is due a lack of jobs. The lack of jobs is also do
to the Bush administration lack of management. So get real Sky, how can you be so blind
and narrow minded.
You are blaming Mr. Obama for our current problem, but deep down inside you know that this problem existed under the Bush administration. Yes it is Mr. Obama's problem now because
he is the president and it will be the new president problem in 2012 if he loose the election.
Where are all the jobs, that is a very good question. Supposedly, all the corporations CEO’s are supposed to be using their tax cuts and credits to create jobs to put Americans back to work. So where are these so called jobs? These companies have been getting tax cuts for the past ten to twenty years, were are the jobs that they have created. They are in China, India and Vietnam just to mention a few offshore countries, but they sure are not here. But yet some members of our government still want to give them tax breaks and tax loop holes. Each party want the blame the other, but the truth of the matter is that they all are corrupt. The members of our political system that are fighting against during away with corporate tax cuts and loop holes are trying to protect the interest of the people who put them in office. These Politian’s need to be kicked out of office and in some cases jailed. They were elected to sever all the people not just the wealthy. As for as the Obama job bill it might not be 100 percent correct but it is a start. We need to do away with corporate tax credits and loop holes and use that money to help America. The more people that are employed the larger the tax base. If people are not working then they don’t pay and taxes, and that reduces the government’s tax base and that reduces the amount of services that they can provide to the general public. Come election time we need to look very closely at who we are electing. We need to give a lot of our current politicians’ their walking papers. That will be a major step in getting America back on it’s feet again.
Carl, I am glad that someone finely realize that or current deficient is not the current
administrations creation. This deficient is the product of 10 to 20 years of out of control
spending and mismanagement of our tax dollars. I understand that President Obama owns
the deficient problem now and he looses the next than that president will own the deficient
problem also. I think the people who are blaming him for creating the deficient are two french
fires short of a happy meal. I am sure that there are lot of things in the budge that can be
can be eliminated are put on hold until we correct the deficient crises. Things like the space
program, ear marks, the two wars that we have going right now and cut aide to some of the
countries that don't need our help and more. I am sure that there more, but I have not seen
I listen to the President talk about his new job program and I have a few problems with it. First, his job program target is bridge and highway repairs across the nation. That is great for the unemployed construction workers in Americans. But what about those who are unemployed, and are not construction works. They need jobs also. I know that jobs in any sector of the job market will help the economy, but I don’t think that jobs in the construction industry is going to give the economy the spark that it needs to catch fire again. There need to be some assistance help to retrain the displace works in America. The companies that close down shop and move their business oversea should be required to pay for the retraining of each laid off worker. Maybe that will stop companies from closing down shop and moving overseas for cheaper labor. I am not saying that companies should not allow the move their business but I do think that they should be responsible for the retraining of their displaced workers. Some of these workers have worked for the same company for over twenty year, and that is only trade that they know. Then there is the aging factor, looking for a job in your fifties or sixties is a big handicap. In most cases, companies do not like to hire out of work aging employees. I think his job program need a lot more meat. Right it does nothing for the average unemployed worker.
You can say the same think about the Republicans, when are the Rep going to stop blaming the current administration for something that was part of the past administration. Obama did not start two wars with no money to pay for them. Like or not all of that was part of the Bush administration.
I can also remember having to standup in the class room every morning and recite the
Pledge of Allegiance when I was in school too. That was part of the morning devotion that
we had each day before class started. I can also remember having to learn and recite the
Preamble to the Constitution. I think that those type of things help mold most of us into
good citizens and built character. It is a shame that the First Amendment which was
designed to protect our rights has taken so many away.
I am aware of Steve Spinner but currently I do not have enough knowledge about him to give you an opinion. I will do some research and maybe voice my opinion about him later. Thank you for the nice comment about my posting.
