So, Jeff, are you part of the Grand Old Patsy party?

God Bless this Country, and keep the fools that believe the Republicans(aka Royalists)away from the ballot.

Usually, I would LOVE the play on words, if only this wasn't such a desperately tragic situation for our children's's just not fair to them.
I remember the beauty of Reagan's Morning for America. Many knew there would be ' mourning' for somed in America with Obama. NOBODY ever thought there would be COSTLY horror & blunder piled on top of horror and blunder. Main Street, middle-class taxpayers, with decent fixed loans, long-term jobs, equities intended to assist kids in college(NOT for purses & cruises...... would be the ones ending up home values below loans they'd had for 10-12 years, and LONG-term semi-professional job that disappeared when the company disappeared...this year WORSE than LAST. Last year was mostly people that really weren't so well planned or secured in the first place...tragic, but not too surprising. But their tenuous lack of preparation eventually caused even those with, education, JOBS, & 75% mortages unfairly suffered consequences.... as well ass THEIR children. Those children of the poor and poorly-PLANNED will still be 'taken care of' and will be recruited & ASSISTED to the MAX with pitty. However, those who have ALWAYS PROVIDED the TAX $$ used for those poorly-PLANNED parents, are now the children who the Obama administration chooses to forget....their parent still have assest ! ! WELL, MAYBE they do and maybed they don't.... but still the administration chooses to only help the SAME children that we've always covered anyway.....screw the middle-class KIDS who would like to attend just a simple state college. The POOR and minorities will be the LUCKY ones who will get free-rides at the UNIVERSITIES. FACT. MOURNING in America for the next generation. Pelosi, Boxer & McNerney have been in the MAJORITY for .FOUR. YEARS ....Pelosi has controlled the entire AGENDA , including FINANCIAL for .FOUR.. years ! ! Obama was a silent SENator while SPEAKER PELOSI was running everything for two years before he became President. They didn't care what the results and effects of their crappy legislation was on the folks here are home ! ! !
