Again, I’m choosing to publically answer someone that addressed me, yet, when I tried to respond… I ran into a brick wall of arrogance.
Gerald said: “The only thing I can think about is that racist and
USA hater Obama and his wife are; not to mention his lies and
poor judgment. And, the liar and deceitful person Hillary is.”
No presidential character in either of the two losers!”
My Answer To Gerald
Another “educated” individual. Oblivious to the obvious.
And the Republicans are beacons of hope? Did you know that any and
all speeches are available to view in their entirety? Try reading
these for yourself, rather than spout rhetoric you’ve heard. It
would allow you to appear less foolish.
Do you realize the next president will inherit more problems
domestically and abroad than any president since Johnson… 4000 dead
US citizens, over 50,000 wounded, an Army that failed to admit to
closed head injuries, $3000 a SECOND for a war that seemingly appears
endless, hundred billion dollar bailouts of unregulated investments
houses and the resultant foreclosures on homes of a multitude of hard
working people through no fault of their own…due to predatory
lending practices. (Many did qualify for conventional loans but were
steered into ARM). What ever happened to the “truth in lending act”?
Ask yourself, Gerald, are you better off now than you were 8 years
ago? I didn’t even touch on rising health care cost, energy or
tuition. You really want to lay your lot with someone that wants to
continue this? Are you ready for more of the same.
Then I get up this morning and read that Former Texas Senator Phil Gramm has dubbed the United States as a “nation of whiners in a mental recession”. This man has a doctorate in economics?! Where has he been that he sees our nation as one of whiners in a “mental” recession? Is the disconnect that severe with those at the top? Evidently it is! Of course, this is Senator Mc Cain’s economic advisor. Will he soon become his “former economic advisor”? It appears Senator Mc Cain is trying to distance himself from Gramm, so I suppose we’ll have to wait and see.
EXCUSE ME, but the price to keep ones home, purchase food, utilities, tuition and gasoline (all of which are necessities) is not ‘mental’…but a reality. Let’s get a clue here…we are not having a “mental recession”…it is in fact reality!
Yet, nothing really surprises me anymore…especially when VP Cheney said he was not part of the Executive Branch of government. I want to yell…IS ANYONE AWAKE? It appears the “powers that be” have fallen asleep at the wheel and “fiddled while Rome burned”.
As the title of this post suggests…THE LIGHTS ARE ON…BUT NOBODY IS HOME!
