I had to laugh when Biden brought up the patrons--while shopping at Home Depot. He mentioned their fear about the current financial crisis & slowing economy. Obama/Biden have promised to raise taxes on business/corporations & people, including Sub-S corporations who are the backbone of job creation in this country. Well, Joe do this--& you'll not only be talking to the shoppers at Home Depot, but the employee of Home Depot that just got their last pay-check. That's what Joe means by being Patriotic. THIS IS CALLED TRICKLE DOWN PAIN!
