Very annoyed that corporations are experiencing record profits while wages are at an all time low. It's as if they are trying to undo all that makes America great. But, hey, SOMEBODY'S got to build the pyramids, right? And if we are indeed a christian nation, they aren't acting like it.

Bleak outlook if leadership (or rather lack of it) remains. I firmly believe that a lot of what we are going through is due to the immorality of our nation. A quote I heard: "Fiscal bankruptcy always follows moral bankruptcy", and I know we must pray the Rosary daily for world peace. Our mother will not fail us. She promised. Sadly, I don't think that many people do so. Quite scary. And I'm a Realtor! Thank God for my faith that keeps me sane!

Obama's net worth in 2008 is $300K. In 2011, $7.3M. Average American family's net worth is down $200 from 2008 to 2011. Government legislators net worth also increased. More millionaires now in government workers. While we are advised to plan your trip so you cut on trips and cost of gas, Obama's family goes on vacation--either Martha's vineyard or Hawaii, by Air Force One, one by one. First Michelle, then Obama. At least the dollar we spend on gas is our own. The dollars they spend on jet fuel is also our own.
I feel sad when somebody not really moneyed enough goes into some high office. They used it as "What are we in power for?"

This nation needs to turn back to God, and honor him . This great nation of ours get heavily involved in corporate America and forgets that this nation was built under God. Maybe if we start honoring Him and His son our economy will recover. There is so many corporations in America that support issues that are very improper in the eyes of God, like aborting little babies.

Being in real estate for ten years I rode the high and in the last few years, definitely the low. The only real estate business is bank owned repos and short sales. THere is no happy ending, there are no happy sellers and buyers. People are losing their homes every day. Until improvement in jobs become prevelent, we will be in this for a few years or more that's for sure. True, home prices and rates are at historical lows, but when no one can qualify without a job, it is just one big vicious cycle. I believe we will get out of this mess eventually, but we need more jobs and hope:)

President Obama has hurt our Country in many, many ways. But sticking with the topic of the economy going further in debt with so called stimulas packages have proven, since his Presidency to be a total failure. The same goes for many in Congress backing these stimulas programs. It's the private sector that contributes to the economy across the board.

Jobs are not returning. Without jobs, consumers have no money to spend. If Consumers are unwilling to spend, corporate heads don't make any money. If corporate heads don't make any money, they're unwilling to invest in employees. If they are unwilling to invest in employees, the consumers don't have the jobs, perpetuating a vicious cycle.

I just read what I had written. I sound like a racist. I am not. I am a immigrant. Once deported back to my own country with all my family. At that time it was called 're-patriation'. I later on immigrated legally. Educated myself. Raised a family and educated them. Adopted a child from another foriegn country. Served in Vietnam. I am proud of God and country. I have paid with taxes and battle scares. I have earned the rights of the constitution. I see a cloud over our flag. God will help us...I still believe in miracals. Our needs now are: JOBS FOR AMERICANS. A US built economy by the gods people.Feed those who are unable to work, not those that are too lazy...and use the muddled system.

Bring back ''MADE IN THE USA''...give jobs to the our countries people. Stop giving to people who are 2cd and 3rd generation welfare. Educate and direct them into national projects. Help the retired tax payers with social security. Charity is great ...but, supporting other nations is not in our national budget now. Help your people by not creating a welfare country. I see now more non-working american minorities driving exspensive autos...buying Big screen tv's on credit. Why? Because we have just given them food stamps, paid housing, free medical and pay no taxes. They owe nothing...because the former middle class has just paid for it all thru some govt program. Soon we will all have a welfare tax added on to our pay checks. I am retired and live on a fixed income. When I went to the Social Security office to set up my retirement.....there were around 90 people holding numbers waiting to see about their benifits...as I looked around the room....I counted only 4 white seniors. The second time I went there were only two white seniors and 90 some odd others. People go to your social security office...count the numbers and do the math. God bless those that really need it. Damn those that steal from the poor box of America. Pray to god that we put an end to this by finding a honest elected offical to manage our country. God bless us!!

Louis has it right! I have been saying the same thing for years. Both parties are controlled by the same group, the mega rich. They play us off of one another while they get richer; they have divided us the question is have they conquered us? A while back I received an email that was a joke but sadly was very true. It said "I wish that congressmen would wear suits like NASCAR drivers, that way we could tell who their corporate sponsors are". Those that think that it is OK to give away our manufacturing jobs are fools. The US can't keep spending more that it takes in, pretty much like your own personal economy. How long can you spend more than what you take in before you loose it all? When you buy inexpensive things at Walmart from third world countries you are voting saying that it is ok, you are spending your children's and grandchildren's future. We can compete with Canada and Western Europe we can not compete with third world slaves making $2.00 for a ten hour day. Wake up people.

By the way, I read some comments below arguing about Democrats and Republicans. Folks, it's a one party system. It's a dog and pony show and the joke's on us. Notice how the parties always get things done when it comes to major agendas (bailout, Patriot Act, Health Care all passed.) There is absolutely no difference between the two parties who serve coporate interests and the banking cartel. The longer they can extend the fraud that one party is different from the other, the longer it will take for us to win our nation back and start a real manufacturing base and a real economy again.

The U.S. is $14 trillion in debt, which doesn't include unfunded liabilities like Social Security and Medicare which really put our debt beyond $50 trillion, an unpayable amount. Real unemplyment (U-6) continues to be over 20%, 40 million+ Americans are on food stamps and 54% of Americans live on some kind of government entitlement. We haven't even seen the real depression yet. They have delayed it with the stimulus but if you go to certain parts of the country (California, Detroit, big cities) you know the depression is already here.
At the end of the day, the dollar is worthless paper, which is why gold, i.e., real money, continues to break record highs against all paper currencies. Anyone who is not sure about the economy or what is happening needs to watch the video "Meltup" on Youtube. An absolute MUST WATCH.

Fr. Corapi it right, the real threat is morality. We can't expect God to bless our country when people keep voting in immoral leaders.

I just saw an article today that said Obama might not win in next race.

Dreaming, and Sloganeering are not what is needed. We are now seeing what happens when you elect bitter socialists to high office. They see every problem as the Govt. needs to strip $$ from the greedy capitalists and give it to the poeple. The problem is that you need capitalists to create jobs and wealth. The government cannot do that and in particular for the current group in power. The 80's and 90's were the engine that lifted huge numbers of people out of poverty. In my family, those would get off their a#$ and get it are still suffering and crying that the Gvt. should do something. I went back to college, bought a reasonable house and both kids are College Grads. My brothers are in the exact place there were. Nothing given to you will last..

The real problem with the current administration lies not in its economic policies, we've seen the like in the past, but its blatant disregard for the basic rule of law. Obama has time and time again overstepped and violated the constitution in his approach to running the country. A prime example is health care. The federal government has no constitutional jurisdiction in health care as set forth by the 10th amendment. Or how he "saved" the auto industry by allowing the car companies to illegally violate their contracts with their dealerships without repercussion. Don't be too distracted by the economic side, there's a whole lot more going on with this administration. What good is a booming market when your fundamental liberties begin to come under attack?

It doesn't seem to me that the current administration knows or cares what the American people are concerned about.

Well, there are no such things as out of cycle elections, it's constitutionally impossible. The constitution clearly sets forth that elections are to be held every 2 years with presidential elections held every 4 years. There are clearly defined rules for presidential succession. Upon death or other such incapacitation, resignation, or impeachment and removal of a president, there is a statutory line of presidential succession starting with Vice President, then speaker of the house, then president pro tempore of the senate and so forth, all the way down to the secretary of the most recently instituted federal department, which would these days be Homeland Security.

Our government has lost all sense of morality and ethics. Unfortunately the present president believes in a socialist philosophy and wants to destroy all semblance of the principles on which this country was founded. He has no respect for the country and no allegiance to a christian morality. Our only hope is impeachment for his violations of the law in the
Sestak case and the disregard for our constitutional rights of free speech. Maybe we can have an out of cycle election and put in someone with some morals (if there are any politicians out there with some).

As the great Milton Friedman said "I think the government solution to a problem is usually as bad as the problem and very often makes the problem worse." So long as governments believe they have a role in the economy's recovery, the economy will, at best, sluggishly recover. To take a thought from Thoreau, thank God the economy is made of Indian rubber, or else it would never manage to bounce over the obstacles legislators are continually putting in its way.

The only jobs being created are government jobs, which only help to bring the economy down, as these people don't produce anything. The REAL unemployment rate is around 17%, as many people have stopped looking for work. These little runs to the upside are only temporary. I agree with Rebecca, times will get worse, (maybe for quite a while) before they get better. Our president is no friend of this country, he will keep the Fedgov interfering in the economy, which only hurts things longterm.

In the end times an economic crisis is supposed to happen that is going to see the whole world as being bankrupt. The stock market is supposed to crash and banks will go under. People are supposed to be destitute. These are visions by Catholic saints. This may not be it, but I do believe that a collapse is coming within the next 10 - 20 years. If society can't see things, then either they have to be in denial and Godless. So many visionaries and saints have foreseen such turmoil and the loss of so many souls caught up in the world. The push for so many rosaries is important to help save many souls and convert Russia. Our Lady promised to help all those who will remain faithful to her rosary.
