    Ok the tax cuts for the upper class have been in place for a decade, the stock market is up to 11k+. Wall street and GM was bailed out. Where are the jobs?

    Nothing is gonna improve because our political leadership is stuck on stupid. Creating class war and fiddling with tax policy is Voodoo.. We need leaders that are talking about transforming America workers skill sets to adapt to Global economics. Emphasis on R&D -- not subsidizing existing products. Education, foreign corporate cash repatriated.

    There IS no leadership to keep America out of decline. A poll today says that 65% of Americans now believe America is in decline.. How's the Hope And Change thingy working out????

    Ohh I have heard of a con job ans have been watching it happen for 3 decades.
    And yes we are in decline and denial of that fact.
    And virtually NO political leaders have the balls to admit it.
    Or to admit the real reasons for the decline.

    Tax cuts for the wealthy have been happening consistently for almost 40 years now, while the middle class have to pay for them. Its time the Middle Class united and took back America from the Wealthy!

    As technology advances the need for man made labor decreases. Combine that with an increasing population and it doesn't end well.


    Oh and the fact that 7 year Chinese kids work for cheaper.

    I guess they need to keep MORE of their money. If we went to public financing of elections, they wouldn't need to waste their money bribing our representitives and would have more on hand to create jobs. EVERBODY WINS!!! :cool:
