    The very same people that profiteered off the 2 wars that were funded through borrowed money (to be re paid with interests).
    Are the same people that will not have to pay those 2 war loans (re paid with interests) because they are getting the biggest tax cuts and already have all the tax credits and such.

    That leaves the poor and middle class to repay the Afghanistan and Iraq war.

    The GOv’t went to war and borrowed for it.
    The Gov’t cut taxes on the wealthy and corporations.
    The Gov’t gives the borrowed money to the wealthy/corporations to prosecute the wars.
    The Gov’t continues to keep the tax cuts in place for those they gave the money to those who profited from those wars.

    That leaves the middle class and poor to repay those loans with interests.

    A thft of American economic security.

    The same thing ocurred with the Bank Bail outs.
    They gave the bail out money to the wealthy and kept the tax cuts in place that they do not have to repay any of the borrowed money to bail out those banks and repay the interests on it.

    So now we have to make those wealthy union teachers pay the price………………..

    Should all those Wall Street executives get these big tax cuts after taking tax payer bail out money for such a fine bankrupting job they performed on their companies and the American econommy?

    After taking tax payer bail out money (TARP) and giving themselves multi-million dollar bonuses?
    I am not in favor of them getting the TARP, giving themselves multi-million dollar bonuses and now tax cuts on those tax payer funded bonuses.
    They willnot create jobs with their tax cuts. They will try to hide it in offshore accounts. Because they aren’t going to invest it in anything they are selling to us, that is for sure.

    Think about it, It is reported Rush Limbaugh earns and estimated $58 million a year. His tax cut under the Buah cuts continued will give him about #2.7 million dollars. You really think Rushbo will hire 52 people at $50 thousand a year with his tax cut?
    And how many jobs will Paris Hilton create?

    American corporattions have no incentive to create jobs here. They like China’s communist labor force and their market is selling things like tooth paste to a billion Chinese. Then there is Indi;s market. They do not have any, ANY reason to create jobs in Amrica when they gave up on America as a market.

    One other note:
    IF a web site began leaking a lot of secret/ not known sex scandals of republicans.
    Would they call it ” Icki-Leaks “?

    To our President

    “Nothing is ever accomplished by a reasonable man.” Bernard Shaw

    Mr. President.

    I voted for you.
    There was a special energy then. The hopes were high.
    I realize that the situation you inherited was grave and nothing could be fixed overnight.
    But there was hope.
    Hope made you the President.
    Hope that you would end the devastating wars.
    Hope that you would stand by your principals
    Hope that you would be less of a politician and more of a leader,
    Hope that you would fight for what you had told us you believed in.
    Hope that you would understand that when the future of our country was at stake there could be no compromise.
    Hope accomplishes great things, Mr. President.
    We were with you Mr. President; ready to support you in that good fight.
    We did not elect you to be just another politician.
    We elected a Leader.
    There are limits to compromise Mr. President.
    There can be no compromise with people without morals; whose only goal is unlimited power.
    There can be no compromise when what you believe in is at stake.
    Great things are accomplished against all odds Mr. President.
    There can be no compromise when the results are half measures that make things worse, such as healthcare reform, where the insurance companies gained even more power because you abandoned the public option.
    There can be no compromise allowing tax cuts for the rich to continue while the rest of the country sacrifices.
    There can be no compromise with big banks conducting business as usual after almost destroying our economy.
    Hope, Mr. President is a powerful force.
    Do not compromise your principles.
    Do not let hope abandon you.
    Because Mr President when we lose hope you lose votes.
    And one of these votes is mine.
