Obama Vs McCain

Posted in Politics at 4:36 pm by snag

I seriously don’t understand why anyone in the middle class would vote for McCain. I mean, come on.  a $19 tax break for people making less than $19k a year?  $19?????  In his speaches you hear him talking about tax cuts to help people pay for gas and food and mortgages.  Who needs the most help paying for gas and food?  Uh, the poor.  I don’t think $19 is going to go that far for these people.  And mortgages?  Those would be the middle class folk that are in danger of losing their homes.  Their tax break?  $113-$319.  That’s not even one monthly payment.  I understand there are more issues at stake but come on.  $19??????

Lee Iacocca Is My Hero

“Am I the only guy in this country who’s fed up with what’s happening? Where the hell is our outrage? We should be screaming bloody murder. We’ve got a gang of clueless bozos steering our ship of state right over a cliff, we’ve got corporate gangsters stealing us blind, and we can’t even clean up after a hurricane much less build a hybrid car. But instead of getting mad, everyone sits around and nods their heads when the politicians say, “Stay the course.” Stay the course? You’ve got to be kidding. This is America, not the damned Titanic. I’ll give you a sound bite: Throw the bums out!

You might think I’m getting senile, that I’ve gone off my rocker, and maybe I have. But someone has to speak up. I hardly recognize this country anymore. The President of the United States is given a free pass to ignore the Constitution, tap our phones, and lead us to war on a pack of lies. Congress responds to record deficits by passing a huge tax cut for the wealthy (thanks, but I don’t need it). The most famous business leaders are not the innovators but the guys in handcuffs. While we’re fiddling in Iraq, the Middle East is burning and nobody seems to know what to do. And the press is waving pom-poms instead of asking hard questions. That’s not the promise of America my parents and yours traveled across the ocean for. I’ve had enough. How about you?”
