When Obama said laser like focus on jobs he was referring to laser guided missiles on search and destroy missions.

All the federal money sent to California for Obamacare, for you sheep federal money comes from Washington and comes from your paycheck, wasn't used on any doctors, hospitals or anything related to healthcare. It went to unions, it went to community organizing groups to help them fund democrat party awareness. LOL! Just like the stimulus. Has nothing to do with helping you insects, you stupid little insects. It has to do with power and controlling you, and squashing you if need be.

No mention in the article of the young people coming out of college who cannot find any job, no job at all. They are not eligible for jobless benefits and as such are not counted in the statistics, but it is the worst now than any time since the Great Depression.

Believe me when I tell you that the majority of your polticians know this. Their concern is no longer you or tgis great nation. rather, they are only concerned with clawwing their way for their own spit at the global table.

if you still cant see it you will soon understand. most of you probably already feel something is off, way off, beyond political party. remember, you cant eat gold and bullets. when preparing make food your first priority. :)

that was an awesome spring! By now there should be no doubt there is corruption in every level and dept of our failimg govt.

now, on to summer, on to financial decay. The bailout money wasnt spent, it was saved. We have no physical gold. The big banks have been,shortimg the paper gold and silver market to slash the price while buying loads if the physical with bailout money. It will soon end. When the bubble bursts in the bond market, the banks are going to dump their t_bills and buy, buy, buy oil, metals, agriculture, and other commodities. Thats coming. All your paoer wealth has been stolen. Now, the banks are going to buy uo all the resources with money they took from you. You are going to lose your country thiis summer.
