"I expect this died.because of the Christmas aspect, not because of the fees.
I suspect it died because the Obama admin seen with what little common sense they have how bad it would hurt their image come election time and someone called the idiots who come up with the brilliant idea and let them know if they wanted their over paid salary they better remove the idea from the plate. I almost wish the idea would have been pushed along so it could have been used to for ammunition come election time.
All this stuff aside now, I hope their is a future for this country and that the state of our economy and other issues we are suffering with today bring some common sense back to our people and subsidies are eliminated, free trade eliminated, and tariffs on imports reborn. There was a day in this country before the federal reserve was created when income tax was not needed and corporations did not ask why they should hire you but told you why you should work for them. In this time of prosperity, people did not talk the talk, they walked the walk. Whole communities would rise and block the imports of foreign goods that threatened their quality of life. Its amazing how fast a people with a history of pride can turn into cowards.
I dont care what anyone's opinion is on whether you should be a natural born citizen in order to be a president of this country. What should matter is what the law says and if it says you need to be than you need to be. The fact that obama can be president without providing proof of it blows my mind.
I dont know where the saying comes from but I love the saying "what makes a man a man is how much he can take and keep moving forward" Our country does not move forward any longer.
I dont have the answer to solve the problem. I dont think the situation can be solved. I honestly think our country has no hope left. The kind of people needed to fix it dont exist. You see if the people who are filthy rich in this country actually cared about you, your families, our history, our future, etc. they could do something about it. What could they do? For one they could provide honest media, back honest politicians, back honest legislation, an on and on but those kinds of wealthy people dont exist any more. Im sorry if I irritate any of you but I dont believe there is any hope for this country. All that is ahead is a long steady decline in the quality of living until our nation becomes a country that was ONCE great.
If there was one billionaire in this country who really cared about this nations future it could be fixed. If they would put our nations future ahead of their own, they could fund the truth and create a tv channel thats sole purpose was truth, 24 hours a day. In a matter ten years, serious improvement could be made, in twenty years this country could rise to be the greatest country ever to have existed.
Do you realize how ridiculous it is that we are suffering as a nation. We literally have just about all the natural resources we need for everything we consume. There should not be poverty for those who are not lazy, and are not disabled. Nobody should struggle to provide; a home for their family, transportation, food, health care, ........................
There is enough for all of us, unfortunately it only takes on bad apple to spoil..........
Im sorry, it all just drives me nuts
One more thing that gets under my skin. The fact that people (politicians, corporations, etc.) study psychology to find the best way to manipulate peoples emotions to minimize our outrage or to simply blind people to what they are doing etc. I could literally choke the life out of the guy who is in charge of policy, wages, etc. at my place of employment. Most people there are to weak minded to see what he does and how he does it. I could literally beat the tar out of this guy for how he does what he does and I could just slap the employees with an open hand to knock the ignorance out of their brains to this tactics
