          I edited my post for the reason being that this thread will go in many directions. All I will say is that we as americans need to open our eyes to see what the hell is going on. We are supposed to be the land of the free and home of the brave. I see things for what they really are and I have lost all faith and hopefullness for our president and government. Look at the BP oil spill....................hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
          God Bless us Americans and Hope that we do indeed stand for what we believe in FREEDOM!!!

          Obama is truly a wonderful President!  Let's see:  He promised to close down Gitmo and it's still opened.  He told us if we DID pass his stimulus package (800 billion in MORE barrowed money) then unemployment would not go over 8%.  (It's now nearly 10%, NOT including those who have stopped looking for work.)

          We are still using the US Military to police the world, espeically in Afghanistan and Iraq.  Then SENATOR Obama was opposed to such actions.

          For the first time in US history, the average government worker earns more than private sector workers.

          When states like Arizona try to pass laws to protect themselves against criminal illegal immigrants, Obama has DOJ sue the state.

          Obama played more golf in his first 6 months than Bush did in 8 years.

          Small business owners are scared to death to hire new people for fear of taxes.

          And.......the BEST of all!  10 Trillion (That's trillion with a big "T") in national debt which effect our grandchildren and great grandchildren.

          GREAT JOB Obama!

          dab....right on.  Case in point:  Obama's housing stimulus.  He supposedly created a plan to save the realestate market.  Well, guess what?  Housing starts in June were the lowest since the Depression.

          Obama should be impeached.

          Hey Man  .

          I don't think it was HIS fault, even though I didn't vote for him.  I like him now, even though I didn't vote for him.  If I could go back, I would vote for him.

          So lets just clear some things up.  Perfect unemployment is at 5%.  Research it.  If you guys don't mind paying $7.50 for a gallon of milk, then just chill out. 

          Because the US did so well in the mid and late nineties, we were due for some inflation.  Remember, inflation is caused when the economy does well over a length of time.  In efforts to avoid "hyperinflation", policies are put into place.  Let's face it some people loose their jobs.  Heh, mine was outsourced to Mexico, and I am Mexican.  Now, those aren't the policies I am referring to, but a stimulus package includes improvements in infrastructure. 

          All over our state, there are stimulus improvements being made.  Guys are getting back to work, Wall-Street is actually hiring again, when we see this trend, the economy does better.  Much of what the Gulf has had to endure will be absorbed by BP. 

          The unemployment % is skewed.  Unemployment is people "actively" looking for work.  They are filing their claims, and being payed unemployment.  This figure doesn't include discouraged workers (people not working, not actively seeking), nor does it include over-qualified workers (people working "under" their qualifications). 

          The real problem is the "underground" economy.  This "economy" is estimated at about 1/3 of our GDP (Gross Domestic Product).  How many people do you know, filling up with gas on the company card, hiring employees under-the-table, failing to report changes in traffic tickets and fines so to save in insurance premiums.  The list goes on you get the idea.  Even little Cindy from next door, making $100 a week in babysitting, is a part of this, "underground economy".  There is much more money that through corporate sanctions, and so on. You get the idea.  Its our REAL PROBLEM.

          Freddy:

          Please site a source (any) that 1/3 our economy is "underground?"

          Also, please share how Obama can repay the 8-10 trillion $ we owe as a nation.  (Mostly borrowed under his 18 month rule.)

          What is it exactly that you guys are expecting from this president? I'm sure he would walk on water if he had the power to do it.

          Obama is not the one that got us in this mess....remember!!! He is trying to get us out..give the man a chance.
          Why is nobody talking about Paulson..he is the one that got the first big bail out money under Bush...that money went all in the wrong hands and some of it in his own pocket.

          I'm sure Bush was glad that his term was over and he could get the hell out of there.

          I feel very strong that while Obama is in office we will find some of the culprits that are behind all of this. It is happening right now...just give the man a chance.

          Unemployment %, well I know a few people myself that just look online to find the 5 jobs a week they need to collect. Takes about 5 minutes and you get another check. Why go to work somewhere.

          And the polls that show, I think they are taking a poll among the tea parties and that are the results. It is made public because it will influence some people to not like him either.

          Ok I have to step in here... For the unemployment comment, its not us Americans fault that we are in a depression not a recession a depression! If the government can send money over seas and bail out the banks why not fund the unemployment. There are NO jobs out there no where. The county where I live is the highest unemployed county of the state of Kansas, Mcdonalds isnt even hiring. Ugh I get so frustrated sometimes that people dont really see the light as to what is going on. Our president is a puppet plain and simple. There is also proven facts that the BP oil spill was done on purpose, Goldman Sachs owned 44% of BP stock and pulled all of it out a week before the spill happened, what would you think?

          When the states are cutting people off of foodstamps to help fund the unemployment something needs to be done. Everyday it gets worse instead of better and we as americans need to stand up and voice our opinions to get your country back together.

          You are absolutely right ishin.....:) I never knew any of the stuff that goes on until one day when I opened my eyes and started seeing it for myself. It makes me sick to my stomach that our leader would do some of the things that are being done. May God Bless us all!!!!

          It is not our leader that is doing everything wrong. I can't figure out why people point the finger at him....everything is done in the Senate and House. He can't do anything without them. Even if he tries, he gets shot down in a new york minute by them.

          Just look at the 6 month drill stop he ask for. Some judge overturned it and come to find out...the judge had a big interest in the oil industry.

          A very important bill HR4899 should have been signed into law back in May. Congress is holding it up because they are bickering over some extra funds a few asked for and would benefit them next election.

          It is greed and politics that are ruining our country...and not our Leader. When you open your eyes, open them wide enough so you can look at the whole picture instead through a telescope looking at one man.

          Sometimes I wish we could find out what really is going on but then I have fear that it would be too overwhelming for us to conceive. And I wouldn't doubt that Goldman is behind a lot of it.
