    I'm going to Pontiac, MI to help register new voters. Real poor black neighborhood. We're signing up young kids, firing them up and helping old people register online and get absentee balots. This is what makes America great.

    Fuck just having one vote. As a community organizer, I can do so much more. And Michigan is a batteground state.

    I think I'd shoot myself if I lived in a red state. Its hard enough when 49 percent are gop. Imagine a state where Conservatives out number the liberals.

    That's it. Divide into states. Red states get expensive insurance, no abortion, pay for war, privatized military, tax breaks to the rich, deregulations, privatize social security, christian state, teach creationalism, zero social programs, no child left behind, outsource jobs, trickle down.

    I guarantee middle class reds would defect. Illegal immigrants would serve the rich in the red states until their economy completely collapsed, and then we'd probably bail them out as usual.

    McCain's Economic Adviser is ex-Texas Sen. Phil Gramm. On Dec. 15, 2000, hours before Congress was to leave for Christmas recess, Gramm had a 262-page amendment slipped into the appropriations bill. It forbade federal agencies to regulate the financial derivatives that greased the skids for passing along risky mortgage-backed securities to investors. And that, my friends, is why everything's falling apart. That is why the taxpayers are now on the hook for the follies of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Bear Stearns and now the insurance giant AIG to the tune of $700 billion.

    The Community Reinvestment Act has NOTHING to do with the crises we're having now.

    Nice try, though.

    Sorta like how JP Morgan, Rockafellor & Carnege bribed Congress in 1913 to let them own our Federal Reserve and Hoover approved it.

    If you look at the Great Depression & also the Guilded Age, you will see that today history is repeating itself. It's desaster capitalism at it's finest.

    Makes me believe it is on purpose. Power is now consolidated into fewer hands.

    Thru the years they'll sell off pieces of their business and then when the whole thing crashes again, they'll get it all back free, because the tax payers will bail them out time and time again.

    Suckers!!

    You're not exactly the only person who notices that.

    Of course, the fact that others keep missing that is simply mind boggling, isn't it?

    Just look at the great city of Chicago to get a glimpse of a future Obama admin... 10.25% Sales tax (highest in the country) State pension fund $44 Billion in debt, worst in country. Chicago school system one of the worst in country. Body count, in the last six months 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago, 221 killed in Iraq.

    I guess some people think this is good....

    I wasn't aware that Obama was ever in the City of Chicago's administration.

    Hey,while you're at there be sure to register and vote for all those dead people, too. That's a fave ploy of your guys.

    And be sure to encourage voters to vote once using their actual names, adn once just using their first and middle names.

    Then be sure to tell them if they don't vote your way martial law will be enacted, they'll lose their pensions and retirements, and probably their children will be speared and eaten by the evil Republicans.

    It wouldn't be an election without some democratic voter fraud.
