As it stand right now, we are about to find out exactly what this means to American homeowners and their related business counter-parts and to the millions of currently unemployed across the nation!

Unfortunately the actual full ramifications will probably not be truly felt until approximately around October of 2012.

Thanks Pink Mindy, thanks pink Mindy, thanks pink Mindy...

I think Mindy gets paid enough so that your thanks are superfluous. For "her" this seems to be a full time job, digging up right wing Corporate think thank propaganda by the bushel. You "followers" of Mindy are nauseatingly naive. During the Bush years in which Bush gave huge tax breaks (which they still enjoy, due to Corporate lobbyists and you deluded baggers who work for them) unemployment took the worse downturn since the great depression. Talk about failed economic policy. It was never 98% of us that got a tax break worth a damn, and what the 2% did with it was invest it over seas. That who Mindy works for. Those who employ the Chinese, Pakistanis, etc, who work to survive doing what we used to employ people right here. Our Government gives subsidies to Companies who are doing this. Re-baggers lead the pack which won't stop doing this, while preaching the Freedom. Freedom to starve for Americans duped into subsidizing those who already have it all, while American workers are on the street. Sure....American Biz needs more tax if they won't send that over sees too. There should be a price for being an American Corporation. Pay your taxes, otherwise fly the flag of China, and don't come running back, ever.

It really looks more like 'same of the same' and 'business as usual' to me.

People that believed Obama's silver-tongued-devil speeches brimming with empty promises and falsehoods should have their heads examined by professional therapists. (They shouldn't have let Obama's original speech-writer go, because his new speeches just plain suck rocks lately ... Have you all noticed this too???

We have absolutely NO, NONE, ZERO public background records of Obama's past and what is made available across the Internet and research libraries contains only hearsay ... ... only hearsay descriptions of Obama's prior achievements ...

And even from what is being described as Obama's background, there are NO KUDOS OF GREATNESS in documented form ... WHATSOEVER!

If that's not mind-control of the masses, then I will never know or understand what is!

It fodder for the idiots who wish to believe it to be true and that is all that it is.

I researched Obama and in one day (actually in 30 minutes I suspected) found a vacuum of DOCUMENTED FORMS AND/OR RECORDS on then Senator Barack Obama ... something was not right with that and something is still not right with that!

I do not side with GWB or Republicons or Democraps, but I could produce a documented history paper with many full details on any public official ...

But NOT for Obama ...

Hmmmmmmm, someone has been stacking our deck and filling our heads with crap about the glorious enlightened Lord Obama.

If you take the time to look close into this, you'll find out that Obama has spent us into oblivion and it's just a matter of time before the U.S. Government defaults into bankruptcy.

> Quote:

"No, President Obama is not 'totally responsible' for the mess that our nation is in, however he is still responsible for the continued severity and misdirection that everything is heading; especially regarding the totally empty promises concerning massive job creation, which President Obama has near-totally ignored!!!

The White House was fully economically advised that the United States would seriously suffer if there were not 2+ million jobs created beginning in late 2009 and into 2011... well guess what! ...

And looking at the hardcore reality of evidence or rather the lack thereof, as we watch our nation derailing and skidding into the gutter at a frightening pace.

We are probably already beyond any possible recovery, unless President Obama enacts one of his empty Campaign 2008 promises to rebuild America's infrastructure with GREEN ALTERNATIVE ENERGY reconstruction projects, that would help to save the environment and lift the United States of America up from its impoverished D+ infrastructure safety-rating as of 2009, which would rebuild America's roads, bridges, dams, tunnels & electric grids; thus creating those aforementioned 2+ million desperately needed jobs across the nation!

There 'would have been' or could still become our 2+ million jobs creation, but the monetary allocations have already become known as the STIMULUS PACKAGES, which has also miserably failed.

Is President Obama going to start throwing 'clunkers' at the problem (referring to Obama's 2008 cash for old American automobiles = 'clunkers' program, which also shriveled and disappeared!) and try to trade them to pay-down our toxic multi-trillion dollar debt to China???

Am I the only one who can see this travesty and to the depths of peril that we are currently heading????


Laugh now, because by this time next year we may perhaps all be eating nothing but BEANS and after that working in sweatshops behind Chinese sewing machines!

No one can prove that this is not that severe, because all of the economic indicators predict the probability of a 1 in 3 chance (last year it was 1 in 5), so why are we continuing to lose our chances while President Obama and the U.S. Congress just toddle-off to their restful vacations.

You should at least be indignantly ticked-off, mad or even blood-eye angry, but that's right we are still backing a promise for ....

*********** 'HOPE'??? & 'CHANGE'??? *********


Show me these invisible pipe-dream miracles, because I really want, no I really need to see them and not just magically believe in pixie-dust and glass-slipper fairytale endings either!

The Democrats had better push Hillary Clinton into position or else find another front-runner, because "Obama Is Toast"!!!!

The best existing argument in favor of point-blank stopping President Obama from being re-elected in 2012 is to say:

"How will America survive for '4 More Years' with a continuation of this lame-duck presidency stuck inside a perpetual grid-lock???".

Good job, Robert S., for calling out this corporate-sponsored, poorly written, conspiracy-theory economic gibberish. Conspiracy theorists always have wide streaks of superstition and paranoia, but the current crop have added an unprecedented level of malevolence.

What's a UK website doing weighing in on the American economy anyway?

We've tried that way three times, the Gilded Age, the 1920s, and the Reagan era and in all cases it led to human misery, poverty and serfdom for the great majority of the American people.

Even Adam Smith approved of progressive taxation.
"the expense of defending the society, and that of supporting the dignity of the chief magistrate, are both laid out for the general benefit of the whole society. It is reasonable, therefore, that they should be defrayed by the general contribution of the whole society, all the different members contributing, as nearly as possible, in proportion to their respective abilities."

"When the toll upon carriages of luxury, upon coaches, post-chaises, &c. is made somewhat higher in proportion to their weight, than upon carriages of necessary use, such as carts, waggons, &c. the indolence and vanity of the rich is made to contribute in a very easy manner to the relief of the poor, by rendering cheaper the transportation of heavy goods to all the different parts of the country."

(The Wealth of Nations)

Substitute corporate jets for "carriages of luxury" and there you have it.

Once again PinkMindy does a disservice to Care2 community members. By linking to this horrendous piece of economic ignorance, she perpetuates the myth that an economic recovery based on past practices is even possible; it's not. Population and available resources are now in conflict, and Capitalism (as we've always known it) is no longer possible. The only way out of this mess is to either change the economic system to one that is both people- and environment-friendly, or reduce the global population by 80%.

Pink Mindy, this is right-wing BS that you expect us to believe. This writer sounds like he has a big brain until he starts spewing about capping the debt. The government is not a business and it should not be run as such. It needs to be able to flow based on the needs of the country. Cantor just shot his mouth off and said these people who need help from Irene can forget it unless some other spending cuts are made. That is un-American. Congress could barely pass the latest debt bill; can you imagine trying to get money if we had a real war to attend to instead of these wars that Bush got us into? We need the big government to regulate the big corporations otherwise they would pollute and rob us to death.

Look Robert S. has enlisted some of his few Left-Wing-Nutter friends to defend an almost non-existent president ... I mean by documented evidence, that is!

The only evidence that any of you might even produce is that Obama is human, but that too is sorely lacking in verifiable proof; however we will concede to the visible reality portrayed on television ... that Obama is at least human ... although NOT 100% verifiable!

Barack and Michelle are nothing but greedy, environment-destroying, lying, money-hungry Chicago politicians, who are flirting up the skirt of the G-8 for a possible presidency post within the European Union (EU) ... And they exhibit no regard for the United States of America or anything else that does not put $$$$$$ into their pockets!

There is no excuse good enough to protect President Obama as being a Deity or Demigod, because he is just barely verifiable as being human in origin.

The Democratic National Convention (DNC) had better impeach Obama, then put Hillary Clinton or at least another Democrat in his place and then ....

Let's move on with really rebuilding America's decaying infrastructure using Green Alternative Energies, thus creating 'real' jobs by the millions and also let's move on to really saving the environment and not listening to anymore of the Obama lip-service brigade.

President Obama only pretends to listen to the will of the American people, but truly is more interested in his hairstyle and personal bank account, than rather if we starve or become enslaved ... God forbid!!!

We are being sold-out in this nation and Obama is NO BETTER than any other third-rate politician, so what more could I possibly say!?

The truth is extremely painful for those living inside a deluded bubble of self-political-protectionist state of mind.

Whether it be a Republican or whether it be a Democrat elected in 2012, it will not matter much NOW after Obama's Titanic Budget that stimulused US to death and even now we cannot turn around without running into a Chinese accountant or a repo-man coming for America's (our) economic jugular vein!!!

Greed begets narrow-minded self interest. Abject greed results in total blindness, including passionate denial of the horrific impacts such greed has inflicted on society, the environment, etc., by 'unrestrained' capitalists. The purpose of government is to protect its citizenry against self-interest run amuck. Since the death of social capitalism (thanks to abject greed), the need for government has never been more critical.

I'm impressed, Mindy, that you actually borrowed the spirit of progressives, in knowing the truth will eventually prevail. Unfortunately your version of 'truth' is akin to an "S"-shaped baseball bat.

'Some on the progressive side are already well aware that the GOP is, and has been at least since 2005, mounting a large and well-funded campaign to plant phony 'progressives sick of the Dems' comments on various liberal sites to split the vote. Their masters know the psychology well: a percentage of the population, no matter what their politics, is 'suggestible,' meaning if they read a string of comments excoriating ALL Democrats as frauds and liars, that will become their opinion, if nothing to the contrary is offered.'

These 'suggestibles' are not necessarily stupid, but they do readily conform to whatever opinion is dominant. That's why the GOP, through their paid operatives, flood progressive sites with so-called 'former Democrats' and 'angry progressives' who do nothing but harp on how horrible the Democrats and Obama are. It's insidious and underhanded, but look at who's doing it -- the party of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder and Ohio Gov. John Kasich. All of them were elected on a promise of jobs and better times, only to use their office to reward the wealthy with tax cuts and lucrative contracts privatizing public services at the expense of middle-class families who work for a living.'

'At one time, some of the 'tells' of the right-wing ‘sock puppet’ troll was their use of terms such as 'DemoRATS' or ‘Demonrats’ for Democrats, and their repeatedly calling Obama 'Obummer,' 'Obomber' or 'Obomba.' But they've mostly changed that language as actual progressives began to notice those repeated constructions and the fetid and simpleminded opinions attached to them. Some current 'tells' are when they don't mention the GOP at all, or CLAIM BOTH PARTIES ARE JUST AS 'EVIL' or try to shut down the conversation with insults, or PUSH READERS TO VOTE FOR A THIRD PARTY, or say that they'd rather vote for a Republican than a Democrat, or make statements with no factual basis, or refer you to a right-wing website to ‘confirm’ their assertions.'

Does any of this sound familiar, Mindy?

'Incidentally, there is no comparable effort by the left: if you try to post comments opposing the GOP or corporatists at right-wing sites, in most cases you will quickly be banned from posting there and your comments removed. They aren't about to let the other side play their game on them, even if we had the money to fund such slimy baloney and the inclination to do so.'

'Our only protection against such ersatz assaults is to use our heads and common sense: if someone is a little ‘too’ enraged at Obama and the Democrats, be suspicious, especially if they never talk about Republicans. Ask them a couple of polite intelligent questions on the comment thread’s topic; if they respond by condemning or insulting you for questioning them rather than engaging you, they’re likely a sock-puppet troll; it’s in their nature to consider any question or disagreement as tantamount to treason.
Also, if they keep reposting basically the same idea in one comment thread, they’re probably a sock-puppet troll; they’ve been instructed by their masters that repetition works. And don’t be swayed if they accuse you of being a ‘shill’ or ‘troll’ for questioning them -- they are trained to do that.'

'Finally, always remember: you can pretend to be a progressive, but you can’t pretend to be smart, and these paid ‘blog warriors’ decidedly aren’t.'

Thanks MJM for the info and link

So true, so true. Thank you for forming that truth so expertly, eloquently and accurately, Mr. R. Unfortunately, I fear that using our heads is losing the battle against those who can't, thanks to the puppet masters' supremely effective tomes of paranoid hypnosis... It's draining as hell, but I can no more give in as I can resist responding to nonsense such as Mindy's. Somebody's got to, right?! And until the Prez decides to move a few degrees away from his supreme mission of dignified unifier, as honorable as it, and he, is, the numbers out there sabotaging our country are so pervasive that many more of us need to stand up to these sock puppets, don't you think? And speaking of thinking, I sadly think that, if Mindy could 'hear' what you've so excellently explained, she would've retired a while ago... Where does that leave us, all?

"Thank you for forming that truth"

I didn't form it, so the expertise, and eloquence are not mine. I simply observed it, noted the truth in it, and shared. I posted it not so Mindy could "hear" it, but so others might see it, and by what and who it describes...see if for the first time.

"many more of us need to stand up to these sock puppets, don't you think?"

Oh yes. The more the merrier. I have been impressed at your fine efforts recently, Mr. D. I hope you stick around.

"Where does that leave us?"

Some have been informed, others like myself have been confirmed in there suspicions..and others like Mindy have been exposed. Tomorrows another day. Keep on Truckin.

If there is nothing to what I am saying, then why are there soooo many Anti-Obama websites being erected by Republicans and Democrats across the Internet right now???

the GOP, through their paid operatives, flood progressive sites with so-called 'former Democrats' and 'angry progressives' who do nothing but harp on how horrible the Democrats and Obama are. It's insidious and underhanded, but look at who's doing it --the party of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder and Ohio Gov. John Kasich. All of them were elected on a promise of jobs and better times, only to use their office to reward the wealthy with tax cuts and lucrative contracts privatizing public services at the expense of middle-class families who work for a living.'

Sooo many, says PinkMindy. But we already knew that.

*** Trying to reach everyone ***:

Don't just tell me to vote for Obama ... Convince me why I and others should do so!

We must review ALL of the facts and we must know the whole truth and not just half-truths before making a rational 2012 election decision!

If we go around wearing 'rose colored glasses', then how can we ever make the right choice???

I myself will either vote Third Party or else exercise my right to not vote at all, but I refuse to just vote for Obama because a few Care2 bullies 'try' to force me to!!!

It's my decision too, you know!

Post any and all counter-evidence here or on the main site comment line, in order to prove beyond a shadow of doubt that President Barack Obama deserves another 4 More Years in the highest office of the land.

NO Republicanophobia or Anti-Social Racism!

Hot...yeah right. You approach this site as if it were Ebay and you were desperate to sell crap. Its a shame, you make this whole site less, by your monotonous silly efforts and presence here. When caught in lies, you just move on and tell more. Networking skills....What a laugh. Enjoy the dirty little stain you make here. Its obviously all you've got..

*My Latest Care2 News Articles @

A federal investigation has been launched into this Obama Team stimulus investment using tax payer's monies, as financial auditors were warning of possible bankruptcy, which has caused everyone to scratch their heads and ask "Where is the $535M???".

> "Obama Team Backed $535 Million To Solyndra Solar Company, As Auditors Warned Of Troubled Finances" @ Care2 News:

We have to seriously wonder if Vice President Biden's blunder (remember him?) was just a prelude to Obama's failed economic policies, because now we understand that Obama's solution was and still is to throw money ( 1+ trillion $$$) at the problem.

> "Jobs: Obama's Most Dangerous '3-Letter' Word Reflects Failed Economic Policies" @ Care2 News:

American Jobs Act: Take this jobs plan and shove it! This is the best plan coming out of Washington D.C. since (wait for it ...), yes, since Clash of the Clunkers.

> "Al's Emporium: He's Not JOBama" @ Care2 News:

Watch and experience the most pathetic presidential speech in the history of the United States of America, not only the worst speech in the tenure of President Obama's political career, but spells the end of that career as his days are surely numbered.

> "President Obama Sends American Jobs Plan To Congress - Rose Garden Speech - Video @ Care2 News:


To The Reader;

Do you feel that President Obama is a lame-duck leader stuck in perpetual grid-lock and do you further suspect the Democratic Party is about to ask Obama to withdraw from the 2012 re-election race, in order to clear a path for real viable Dem candidates???

Then here is the alternative Care2 group for you to join, because we have daily articles that do not protect Obama with any kind of 'white kid gloves'!! : > > > >

Couldn't be more true. Just listen to them starting to suck air on the jobs bill, since it would require revenue from people so rich they couldn't even tell you how losing that money has effected them in any way,
