    The Coming Fury of an Angry America

    The Coming Fury Of An Angry America


    In 2008, America gambled on hope, as hope is all it had. A new administration faced the growing catastrophe in the only way it could understand, frantically pumping in dollars to resuscitate a prostrate consumerism. An insane amount of debt piled up, the annual deficit soaring through $1,000,000,000,000.00. One trillion dollars. Absolutely none of it was used to purchase plasma TV's, hot tubs, or bling. The richest of Americans - as they always have - prospered along Wall Street and summered in the Hamptons while the drought stricken middle class waited for a rain that will never fall.

    The American middle class will not spend its way out of disaster, if only because it can't. There are no savings. The house is worthless. The credit cards are gone. Jobs are disappearing. Today is bad and tomorrow looks worse. People are nervous, frightened, worried. They are behind in the mortgage, and struggle to make health insurance payments. All the while, they watch the stock market explode, the bonuses arrogantly roll on, and their government lie to their faces that the "recovery" is underway. China is booming, so is India and Brazil. Beneath the hope, patriotism, and the flag, the American middle class can feel it all slipping away.

    In a nation consumed by politics, where pandering and lobbying are two sides of the same platitude, what will the increasingly angry gentle folks of Ohio, Iowa, and Florida demand of their philandering representatives in Washington? What form of instant remedy will some baseless political hack come to offer them as the snake oil for what ails them? .....

    Right now, most of the people in America believe we are in Recovery. They have heard on the evening news that the Unemployment Insurance claims have gone down fairly consistently since September and that Manufacturing is showing strong improvement and that house sales have started to soar and that the decrease in house values is a thing of the past and that Unemployment has started going down from 10.3 Million to Ten Million and All Is Right With The World.

    Of course, if you have been paying attention, you know that all of this shit is lies from the Obama administration.

    LIE AFTER LIE AFTER LIE AFTER LIE AFTER LIE AFTER LIE WITHOUT END.

    It is time to remove this crook and all of his fellow criminals from office and prosecute them for Treason.

    Returns on domestic policy is not MacDonalds. President Obama and this administration inherited the worst economy since 1929. They have to deal with two failed wars, and a continueing terrorist threat. Then there are the normal daily disasters.

    In the meantime, they also set some ambitious goals concerning Health Care and addressing Climate Change.

    A continued economic recovery will bode well for the President and Democrats. A lack of it will hurt them in 2010. People who wish to see the President fail will continue to lie concerning the state of the economy and everything else.

    Sorry. Obama inherited an economy that if he would just leave it alone will correct itself. But he insists on punishing those that keep the economy going.....and he seems to be more worried about what other countries think of us then what his own people think.

    We were winning in Iraq and maybe a year or so away from ending that chapter but now who knows when we can say the war is over with. Obama promised a quick exit and instead got us even deeper into two conflicts.

    Obama's policies are good for our enemies and bad for America...so it's small wonder that many want him to fail.

    Its sounds like something Gomez Addams would say, "Obama inherited a struggling economy and in 18 months plunged it into bankruptcy, now there's a man I can work with!"

    Depending on how MA goes, Dems could face triple digit House losses
