    On Morning Joe, he talked about a partnership between government and business that rebuilt Europe in 1946, 47 and 48.

    He said we could do that for America but ideology from one party, he's not going to say which party, is holding us back.

    He said there was a Democratic President with a Republican Congress and they worked together.

    Of course, that president wasn't black, Republicans still had many liberals and their only goal wasn't to see the president "fail", so there were some "slight" differences. I think he was referring to that in his "ideology holding us back" statement.

    He said Starbucks is accepting $5 contributions that are going to "small business" and similar loans that would be used to "rebuild" America. He said these plans have worked better in the past when there is a "partnership" between government and business.

    He said if we could rebuild all of Europe and countries in the Middle East, why can't we "rebuild" America. Joe spent the entire interview trying to take "diggs" at Obama, but this guy wasn't having it. And Meeka? She represents blondes on TV in a way we haven't seen since Goldie Hawn on Rowen and Martin's show.

    Get prepared folks. These people are BECOMING scary with their thinking.

    They are warning us EXACTLY what we can expect coming up.

    They over-roast their beans and over-brew their coffee. And it's over-priced. And this guy's over-the-top.

    You don't have anything. Why would anyone want to work with you?

    Remember, "our money" for Republicans is NOT "our money". The money belongs to those who have purchased YOUR politicians. Politicians that gleefully screw you over. Glad you enjoy it.

    Republicans never mention "supply and demand" with talking "capitalism".

    I'm curious. Do they even know what capitalism is? I would like to have them explain it. Right wing explanations are always, "enlightening and amusing".

    Why waste time trying to explain anything to you? You're mind's about as fertile as the Sahara.

    I'd rather drop $5 into the Ronald McDonald House bucket.
