Do me and your country a huge favor. Don’t vote for:
Know why? Because they are running for President of the United States of America and are about to waste a ton of money. They are going to (if they have’t already) waste money creating commercials putting the other candidates down. They are going to raise millions in campaign funds so they can plaster their faces all over the Internet and TV.
How about campaigning on free or cheap outlets like blogging and youtube.com?
They would certainly reach Generation X&Y that way, since all they do is spend time on the computer and phone. But I digress.
Vote me for President. Here’s an idea….
Remember taking history in school? Remember learning about factories? Remember when things were made in America and people WORKED in America?(Remember when Betsy Ross made the American flag - not some worker in China) It’s time to repeat history. This is why study history. Open factories here and put Americans to work. Make local, shop local. “Oh but local is so expensive, it can’t beat Walmart.” Give Americans tax incentives to spend their money locally for the first few years, that way, we can on our feet.
Do you have any idea how many different people a factory can employ? Let’s see -
Anyone with little to no education all the way to someone with a college degree can all work in the same building. Doesn’t that blow your mind??
Hey you- ya you- sitting on your butt all day, (dishonestly)using government assistance, not working - get a job at the factory. My tax dollars could go to something more important like a library or paving roads.
That’s all for now…..
"Where has that patriarchy gotten us? Double digit inflation, economic freefall, oil spills, war in Afghanistan. Boys have made one hell of a mess……………….."
Coming from someone who is a “republicratist” (aka does not belong to one single party), I think these ASSHOLES who are running for president have it all wrong.
Instead of bashing each other in public venues and on TV, and spending gazillions of dollars on campaigns, they should take their time & money and have a good old fashion competition. If you can raise millions of dollars for a campaign, maybe you could save the economy with it. There should be race to see which candidate can give the most money to the best cause. Save a small business going under! Save a library! I would probably vote for the candidate who did that. Because that would help our economy. People would have jobs again, a community would have their library back and we’d have a good president(hopefully who would continue this behavior).

I think Americans have finally realized our government isn’t working, and thanks to outlets like the Internet, they are not afraid to say it. Maybe it is time for a new government. I’m not a socialist, communist or anti government, but it is time for change. And it is great that Americans are finally speaking up about it.
I heard on AM radio last night that there were riots about Wall St and the protestors were seriously hurt. Why? Because people with the money are getting nervous. Remember, it is the middle class who is eager to have the things they cannot have like fancy houses and expensive accessories, so they put themselves in debt to buy high class items, which in turn just makes the rich richer, like CEOs of credit card companies and mortgage companies. Eliminate them, and the rich lose their money.
Ah, but I digress as always. I think we just want to be proud of our country and be happy. We should probably enjoy the earth and our lives before the next tsunami swallows us up, right? Until then, I end this post from my couch„ rock my shirt from Savers, wear the new bracelet I bought from a local merchant, and hit up the local farmer’s market.
A poll published in the September 19th, 2011 issue of Newsweek magazine states that Americans would trust BILL GATES, WARREN BUFFET, and OPRAH among others to serve as our
President. I have to say, some of those choices make sense to me.
But what I found sad, and totally true, is the other poll listed on that page regarding the people or institutions most capable of solving our (economic/political) problems, had representatives and senators at the very bottom. I can’t blame Americans for feeling that way. I heard on the radio that one of my local reps spends thousands of dollars on his plane rides to and from the capital, which is ridiculous. You know what would be cool? If all the reps took the bus to their sessions. I’d be totally thrilled if reps showed up in handmade clothes by local shops and rode their bikes to session. Instead of Pelosi having a facelift, or whatever work she had, she should have bought some really cool jewelry by some local artist and rocked it with some clothing from Savers on national tv. That would be awesome.
