Let’s see now. We have a complete failure of the public education system with dropout rates equal to or exceeding graduation rates. Larry Oscar We have lowered our standards and test scores for employment requirements until it isn’t even worth having standards anymore. We have teachers, ministers, priests, politicians, and just about every other form of our leaders having sex with minor students and their staff.
Those employers who are hiring can’t find qualified workers, except in other countries. It is easier to do business in almost any country in the world other than the USA. The American population has turned into a bunch of government handout ridden lemmings. And the one who is supposed to lead us out of this mess says, “We’ve lost our ambition, our — our imagination, and — and — our willingness to do the things that built the Golden Gate Bridge and Hoover Dam and unleashed all the potential in this country. What a crock!
This bozo has no idea what he just said. For one thing Mr. B.O., the Golden Gate Bridge and Hoover Dam could not be built today because of all the EPA environmental and OSHA safety government regulations you helped create. Meanwhile B.O. continues to make it worse. Why have any ambition when you can just sit back and let the government take care of you?
And those with a creative imagination dare not invent something here. Why you might just make millions of dollars with your imaginative invention, and then you would be one of the “Evil Hated Rich.”
Now I know that B.O. has had a rough time quitting smoking, but I thought it was tobacco he was smoking. Now I see it was something else. Our government has done more harm to our society than any of the founding fathers could have possibly dreamed up.
For starters in 1995 the government had the audacity to tell Americans that home ownership is the “American Dream.” Then the government started forcing banks to loan money to subprime borrowers so they could “Live the American Dream.” How dare anyone in the government tell us as individual Americans what the American dream is! The so called “American Dream” is for us to decide on our own, not the worthless government.
For many Americans it’s owning your own business. For others it is not even owning a home, but rather living where you have no upkeep or maintenance. And just why is it that some low life politicians think they can run our lives better than we can? Babbling Barney Frank of Massachusetts is a fine example of this. Who would want to trade places with this slobbering ugly wad of fat?
Yet this clown thinks he is a genius and knows what we want better than we do. Our nation is indeed in decline, and people like him are leading us there. This may be the first time in American history that the next generation of Americans will have a harder time being successful than we did. And we have the government to thank. It is time for new leadership in this country.
We need leaders who will step up to the plate and stop blaming others for the circumstances we are in. Blaming others will not solve the problems, and solve them we must. We need true leaders who value the rich and poor alike. Our next President needs to understand that he or she is the President of ALL Americans, not just the poor, or the middle class, but the rich as well. We should celebrate the economic diversity that this nation has produced rather than trying to tear down the successful Americans who pay the vast majority of the taxes collected.
Our politicians have made “wealth envy” a national fad. Shame on us as voters for electing these cads. Let’s show some good old American Christmas spirit this season. Let’s find a rich person and buy them a drink. Tell them how much you appreciate their tax contributions and ask them to keep paying their taxes, keep working hard, and please don’t move to China.
We need more wealthy people in this country. The richer people get the more they spend. With 70 percent of our economy based on consumer spending, we need more wealthy people to buy some very expensive things. And if you know some very rich dude who is looking to unload some cash just send him my way….I could use a new TV! — Larry Oscar
