"Why Work Anyway?" -Exactly. More government dependency. It's what Obama wants.

A dependent person is far easier to control than one who stands on his own. That's what Obama and the Democrats want.

Let Obama have it! As I said earlier, when enough people are out of work, hungry and homeless, Mr Obama won't be in office long after that because the people will fight back then.

Let's go over the fiscal cliff and then America will begin anew, a fresh start like it was in the beginning when our forefathers took control of this country from the British. History repeats itself.


The problem with America is that the government has no fear of the people. If they feared the people, they wouldn't do the things they're doing. When the people get mad, and the government fears the people, guess what will happen then.... Till then, let them play... FORWARD!

Let me give you a fine example of fear.....

Why for the time being? Because we can't keep going like this, spending more and more while taking in less and less. Eventually, those 2 million people WILL lose their benefits, and so will millions more people.

And then the revolution will begin anyway. I say - let those people lose their benefits, let the revolution begin NOW.

The 2 million will just move over to the welfare line or rather sit at home and wait for the check to hit the bank.

I was shocked by something I heard from one of my friend’s sons the other day.  He is a college graduate with a business degree and fortunately has a job.  We were all talking about the fiscal cliff and how it would affect people making over $250K a year.  His reaction to the top rate rising to 39% along with the California State tax increase due to Proposition 30 prompted him to say, “Whew, I think I dodged a bullet! I was up for a promotion with a pay raise but someone else got it. I’m pretty sure my...
