    Some things are inevitable, unless we change direction.

    Perhaps now we can actually address the problems and halt the cries of ‘it’s all the pubs fault’ that we have heard around the rest of this board. The problems are real and NO ONE is actually trying to address the problem.

    That includes the right BTW.


    The super committee was a grate outline of this. We are operating around 30 percent over budget and we charge 12 people to get to a solution that would cut a measly 3 percent of the budget. What did we get? NOTHING. That’s how fail this government has become. We can’t get a tenth of what we need.

    Obama has been more interested in using the treasury as his own personal political checking account. History shows that already. When has any other president got our AAA rating lowered?

    I don't blame Obama at all for this, but he can't do anything about it (even if he WANTED to) because those Special Banking Interests Own Him.

    Until the Bankers are booted from our Political and Monetary System, this problem will continue to get worse no matter who is President.

    That's a cop-out. He can do what he wants. And you are ignoring his waste. Utter waste. As far as banking goes; I doubt Obama knows the first thing about fixing it. And since his ego won't allow him to not be the smartest guy in the room; it won't happen.
