    If they can do this, not the stockholders deciding to sell because of salaries, it's a matter of time:

    History repeats itself for those who do not learn the lessons of it. This Obama menstruation is mirroring Jimmy Carter's perfectly, over-reaching and drunk with absolute power. They are incapable of controlling their urge to control. And clearly either they're not students of history or, they simply blame others for what happened post-Carter.

    Obama's power grab is beginning to look slightly familiar. I wonder what was really inside the book that Chavez gave him. Instructions on how to become a dictator in ten easy steps perhaps?

    "In recent weeks, he ordered the nationalization of the foreign-owned cement industry and the country’s biggest steel company. He also nationalized one of Venezuela’s biggest milk producers, its largest cold storage and distribution company and several sugar plantations.

    It is hard to know whether Mr. Chávez will get the full political bang that he is seeking. His popularity has fallen steadily since December when voters rejected his proposed constitutional reform that would have allowed him to stand indefinitely for re-election. If nothing else, the nationalizations will allow his government to use cheap milk and cement to bolster his support among Venezuela’s poor."

    This is worse by powers of magnitude.
    Now the politicos have learned of and are taking advantave of the basic ignorance of a whole new generation of Americans about the way their government works; enabled by the MSM, and a failed educational system induced by the NEA, no questions are asked as Americans lives are being potentially turned upside down.

    Total right wing slop.

    If Bush had handed off a functioning economy, this wouldn't be happening.

    Wonder if some folks on the upper right have wanted this type of crisis all along in order to do away with SS, medicare and caid, public education etc.?

    Keep up your socialist drivel.:cuckoo:
