  • moncon

    Never said anything about invading Syria so don’t put words in my mouth. But if I see my President speaking on TV I want it to be about updates on status of Syria, the terrorist attack in Boston, what he has done this last week to work on our budget problems, etc. I don’t want to see him on TV $ucking up to one of his donors.

    I deal in contracts & deadlines. If I don’t update everyone on these deals they get a bit upset. My job as the person in charge is to keep everyone informed. The President should be coming out and letting his Employers (Us)know where we are on things. Not hiding away and perpetually campaigning. I know I am wasting my words because you just respond with babble and insults, but I won’t let you articulate my thoughts.

    Paul–hopefully, you have done well in the recent upswing of the Stock Market…. as the economy improves, it will get even better. Too bad the right wing GOP (and I know now you are not one of them) objects to sensible fiscal policy (an even monetary policy), but hopefully the economy will gain more speed which will improve the markets..

  • usa8888

    Moncon–I think Obama has to take his time getting the latest CIA updates–information is hard to come by. Also, it’s possible–if al qaeda is supporting some of the rebels, al qaeda might be trying to get the US to do its dirty work for it and then try to take over…complicated situation….

  • Chriscee

    Once (and if) the Feds ever stop pouring 85 billion dollars a month into the economy….the economy will take a nose dive..the stock market will drop…and then we’ll tell the left wing idiots….THAT’S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU PROP UP THE ECONOMY WITH FAKE MONEY.

    I just came from a visit to the daily cable ratings page and saw a show named “Hillbilly Blood” on the list. :shock:

    I just came from a visit to the daily cable ratings page and saw a show named “Hillbilly Blood” on the list.

    It’s a good show about folks that live way out in the woods. Off the grid as the older fellow calls it. The younger one has a family, with one kid, 18 to 24 months old and another one in the oven. No money no food.

    The show I saw last night showed the two fellow making a crossbow of gigantic proportions and a bear to carry. Went out hunting for deer but caught one in a “noose trap” and not killing it with a bow and arrow or with the huge crossbow.

    All in All interesting.

    Do not know if “HB” was one of the stars or that they are some of his family.
