I generally stay away from this place (too many complainers offering too few solutions), but its getting cold and Hunting season is over till next year...so........(meat in the freezer (or jars) is as good as wood in the woodshed 8-)
In a so-called 'free country' whining and complaining (name calling) about 'any' administration and then blaming 'it' for all your 'perceived' troubles is about as far away from democracy as one can get IMO. In case some have forgotten, Obama only appointed Immelt to satisfy the demands from the right, or have some of you been misinformed? And GE has been doing its dirty business for a very long time, well before Obama was even born (there it is, if you have to put a face on the problem, its that little electric guy from GE, now that's a good place to start).
For those earnest students of history out there you already know; Its hard to please everyone in a democracy and ours is a particularly messy one, but just compaining about it does little to correct anything and in fact helps those who wish to do us harm (see the cat, see the cradle). And just voting every four years, that really counts for very little IMO. It is our duty as 'freedom loving people' (right???) to be involved and aware every day, not just on election day (too few of us are aware even on that day).
What happened to America? We happened to America. The mess we find ourselves can be blamed only on us, not the 'tools and fools' we send to elected office, and most Americans are either too lazy or too overwhelmed (by debt or TV) to do anything other than survive another day, week, month.........and endlessly complain instead of getting involved.
Its 'your' country people, get busy if you got a gripe. Get involved with the process (sorry, but that doesn't include sitting on the sidelines complaining, wah-wah) before we all lose the right to change things (we're pretty close already as most can attest). Get informed (start by changing the channel....often or better yet, just turn that crap off and go to the nearest library).
There's no such thing as an innocent bystander, cuz if you're just standing by (complaining), you're not innocent (you're the problem).
Sorry if anyone is offended by this rant, but sometimes this site needs some reality injected (be happy I don't visit more often :-D
So, bring on the clowns, idiots need not apply :-D
