Why is it that the Redskins symbols were OK for decades, but now are all of a sudden WRONG? Could it be just that the progressives now feel comfortable enough to do what ever they DaXX well please. Just as no one holds Obama responsible for any of his acts or deeds, good or bad, no one has any control over the runaway Bureaucrats either. We the people no longer have any say or control, period!
Hey Andy, I'm as fired up as you. However I see a major road block. That is, the sitting politicians have rigged the system where 80%, or more of them from both parties will get re-elected again this time as usual. They stay and stay until they die or move over to K street and make some big money before they hang up their political spikes. The new entrants into the process get eaten up by this rigged system and most don't get past the primaries. I don't have any answers either. Maybe a revolution, but I don't believe enough people have the guts for that.
Woodpacker, I fear that there is one great road block to what you propose. After the election in Nov. we will still have well over 80% of the same people occupying the seats in the House and Senate. This will be the result of a entrenched system that the professional politicians have built for themselves over time. Therefore, I really don't expect any of the steps you suggest to be accomplished, though I agree with all that you propose. Odds are that the slide into the swamp will continue!
Right on Foxfire! And then there's this thing in the sky, called the "SUN". That heavenly body and distance of the earth from it, as well as the speed of the earth in orbit around the sun, has more to do with conditions here on earth than the puny activities of humans.
Carlos, I agree with your observations. However, I believe we must also be aware of the fact that due to creeping socialism in the U.S. for many decades, what some condemn as the current "failure of capitalism" is in fact the failure of the very socialistic system that those critics have put in place! We haven't had true "free markets" nor "capitalism" in the U.S. since the days of Woodrow Wilson.

pamela247, My thoughts also. I hope enough of the American people also see this. We really need a TRUE leader who will lead us in the correct direction.

And then there is a simple little thing called "Common Sense". Remember Cold Fusion? I'm not a scientist, but I use the laws of Physics everyday in my field of aviation. As for the global warming or climate change or what ever one want's call it, I just look at the sun. It has a lot to do with it, I think. As for pollution of the plants atmosphere, let's just plug up all the active volcanoes. I'll bet the earth would "blow it's top" over that!
johnm h, Very well said. True free markets and true capitalism are the best wealth builders for a society. I keep stating, in the U.S. we have not had TRUE free markets or capitalism in nearly 100 years. ( The 16th Amendment and the Federal Reserve ). I say lets give them ( free markets and true capitalism ) a try! It couldn't be any worse than the manipulated mess we have now!

This all sounds correct to me. Just about every decision and policy of the clowns in charge in D.C. have been just the opposite of those needed to grow the economy. Was this all on purpose? We haven't practiced true capitalism or free markets in many decades in this country. The socialists have slowly taken complete control of the economy. Now they say "see capitalism doesn't work". I'll keep saying this until at least one other person agrees with me!

The pie charts on the back of Federal Income tax instruction Booklet show that approximately 2/3 of the spending of the feds is for "Programs" ( we're not allowed to call them Entitlement Programs ) for U.S. Citizens. One wonders, what percentage of this spending goes to folks like our couple who enjoyed living on a Yacht? Doesn't it make you feel really great to go to your job ( if you have one? ) so that you can pay your taxes to support such needy people? Have a nice day!
Sadly, with all the tax payer programs available, there is no worry of hunger or destitution these days. One would only wish that those card carrying union members would actually use their brain power to actually think things through to the logical conclusion that they can always do better when they depend upon themselves rather than socialist union goon leaders!
