Election of 2012....Who ya got?

Page 12 of 41 First ... 1011121314 ... Last

  1. I'm going to stick with Obama. It looks like it will be either Romney or Perry. Cain will be another "Flavor of the Month" and then be forgotten. Perry is just Perry and Romney has flip-flopped way too many times since running. The same party that criticized Kerry for doing do should have the cojones to realize that and call him out, but Romney is their best chance in beating Obama, so why would they?

    I found it amusing.I cannot figure out why the GOP hitched their wagon to these teaparty idiots,thereby validating the teabaggers movement,whatever the hell it is.I don`t even understand what their fundamental ideology is.What exactly do they stand for?Isn`t this the group that initially formed in protest of the supposed death squads?

    Depends...there is the tea party, and then there is the tea party that Palin, Backmann, Glenn Beck and the mainstream infiltrated.

    Really...now we have the new Wall Street movement which will be infiltrated by Obama and his zombie followers and distort that too.

    Best way to squash a genuine movement is to become it.

    Clearly we need to make cuts. The idea that the wars will be anywhere near done with in the next coming years is nuts. We're still going to be in Iraq and Afghanistan until at least 2018, as much as I opposed us being there in the first place. Same time, reform is another word for cuts when it comes to Medicare and SS. So why do the people that rely on those programs have to be punished because BOTH parties can't properly spend our money where we aren't spending more than we are pulling in? I support the millionaire tax or whatever they want to call it, I'm not falling for their bluffs and the whole "job creators" nonsense. What really needs to happen now is setting up Washington so this country never has to deal with this again, even with the political BS we deal with every year.

    We build a Embassy in the heart of Baghdad the size of the vatican...we are not leaving 2018, neither are we leaving in Afgan in 2018. We will be there way beyond that.

    We still havent bought our troops home from WWII.

  8. And that's the problem, we don't need the numerous bases we have all around the world. With the communication technology, planes, and missiles, the need of these bases barely exists. Have one for every continent at least, but no more.

    Wether we need it or not is one thing. I usually express my personal feelings over, but if Im right or wrong doesnt matter as the fact is we cant afford it this country is broke and in debt. We can continue borrowing money from the Chinese. I know the corporations making billions and trillions of dollars in War profits would love to sustain everything as long as possible.

    Of course we are. But 9,9,9 will hurt us more than help on the first 3-5 years.

    Halloween is around the corner, just a coincidence w/ timing. They will be wearing Santa hats before you know it, maybe throw a parade with Disney balloons.

  13. Looks like the new hot candidate is putting himself in hot water. Herman Cain has come out and stated (paraphrasing here) "if you do not have a good job, or are not rich, dont blame the rich or the government, blame yourself."

    Wonder how this will effect his numbers

    Definitely not an intelligent thing to say in today`s economic climate.So much for any chance that Cain had for winning the Presidency.The
    more I watch him,the more he reminds me of a used car salesman.

    In some ways...but America is turning into a caste system and the government has every intention of not only keeping it that way, but building on that.

    Also, I think the illusion that if you work hard, go to school, etc..that you will be that top 5% rich is an un-reasonable false expectation. In this country people are generally taught to dream big, and when they dont get there as expected they carry themselves as miserable and start getting addicted to lottery tickets as their key to happiness.

    Is the government or corporations stopping people from educating themselves or spending more time on their children's education? No, and the value of unskilled uneducated labor drops each year by supply vs demand.

    Again look at unemployment by education level.

    Some do sure, but anyone can make it to the 100k a year level and live well.

    Yes...anyone may have a chance, and I also agree you can make far less than that and live well.

    That chance though is only limited and there are only a small % of jobs available that even make 100k. According to the 2009 census 9.7% of Americans make 100k and up. I know there are far more than that that qualify for the same type's of jobs but are in a impossible situation of limited work.

    I feel that if everybody gets a master education, and is equally as competitive, hard working and smart..still only 9.7% will make 100k.

    This is what they told people in China that if they get an high education they will do good. With the increase and overabundance of college graduates in China many and more in the future are being left out with no real job opportunities because you can only supply a certain amount of jobs.

    In any monetary system most have to be poor and there is no choice. The only solution to this is to ban the monetary system and to move on to a resource based economy.

    this is just not true. not everyone has the same opportunities as others. Not all circumstances are the same.

    Additionally, the value of degrees has changed. Currently, a bachelors degree is the equivalent to a HS degree of 20 years ago.

    Your oversimplification does not address the realities that are being faced.

    And attempting to hold the government and corporations responsible for a population that makes more effort to watch tv than improve skills its no different

    These are obvious issues I agree with you on completely, but its just a part of a complex equation that there are no single answers too. The answers are found on more of a individual bases than the country as a whole.

    again....an enormous generalization. Are there those who fall into your assumption? Of course, but by and large that does not seem to be an accurate depiction at all

    I dont know what is going on today E, typically I am pretty much with you on these issues, but we are having a rough generalization day today

  25. I'm extra grumpy because I'm traveling for work. The things you have to do to make that $

    Didn't he say that to the occupiers? Don't be made at wall street, be mad at yourself for not being rich (sounded like)

    Stopping them no, certainly not. I got all my college education from grants, but that was 10 years ago. Tuition keeps getting more expensive and last I checked they were talking about cutting grants if they haven't already. Community colleges were the way to go when I was in school to save on fee's for your first 2 years and then only have to go into half the debt for the State or University college. Community colleges are twice what they cost from 10 years ago. Unemployment on the other hand is higher also. So its safe to say its not easy to get an education for some.

    Cain was Chairman of the Federal Reserve branch in Kansas (but they market him a pizza guy.) He will say whatever propaganda it takes to cool off and invalidate any enemies of his corporate/banking interests.

    exactly, its not easier now by any stretch. Add in the value of a bachelors in todays job world (which is minimal) and you realize how difficult it is.

    With the folks he is trying to attract to nominate him, that might get more cheers than the execution of 200+ people.
