    God help up. It has been reported that Nancy Pelosi said the stimulus package must be voted on today because she has to go to Europe to receive an award from an Italian legislative group. Okay folks, the biggest pork spending package in the history of the U.S. is being voted on without sufficient time to read the 1,000+ pages. What does that tell you about the state of our country? Add to that Pelosi is getting an award from Europe. The last thing I want is to see our country going the direction of Europe, but that is what is happening. Americans are too lazy or disinterested to see what is happening to us. The current administration and Democratic Congress is in a big rush to change our world so they can maintain control forever. The government is quickly taking hold of your health, finances, what news you should hear and how you live your life. But don't worry you can still watch American Idol. Sadly, there is no place to run to.

    Lots of Republicans voted for these people also.


    It is time for the United States of America to clean house.


    If not every American in the United States is willing to do this, then whatever comes down the pike all will live with like it or not.

    I couldn't agree with you more. Our politicians really don't care if the stimulus bill is right...they just care it's a stimulus bill. Obama wanted it by the 16th...so *puff* there's a stimulus bill. This is not the way to do politics that affects over 300 million people in the US, plus not telling how much it will affect billions in the world. TwoGreen is right about people watching American idol. They know more about that program, than they do on what's going on in America, and how the decisions will affect them. I've always thought that people live in their bubble, and nothing bothers them until it's way too late. Then wonders how did this happen? For all you liberals, Pelosi has one thing on her mind, and one thing only...well maybe two. Number one is she want to bring full blown socialism to our great Nation, and number two, she wants globalization of our country. But first she and the hard left needs to dummy down Americans. Looks like they are doing one hell of a good job.

    I can care less which party it is. They are both in need of a good house cleaning. You woud sure think the Democrats and Republicans would have all gotten that message at this point.

    If the citizens do not demand that their representatives start actually representing their best interest overall the counrty is going down hill worse than it already has.

    I for one have five grandchildren I would like to see have that same liberty and freedom to have dreams that can be actually realized without depending on some corporate thugs along the way mugging them.

    No, that was another lie.

    So no one will have an opportunity to read the 1100 page bill before they can vote on it.

    It is disturbing that huge bills are passed without Congress having enough time to read and analyse them, isn't it?

    Your complaints about this bill being rushed into law were exactly my reservations about how Patriot Act was rushed into law, too.

    But, amazingly, many of the same people who ushare my pain about this bill, simple could not understand my reservations about rushing though that bill.

    I wonder why?
