Can someone tell me what this means? I was following a car with an Obama bumper sticker today and this person had another sticker that said "the more you learn the less you need" or something like that. Is that some socialist sticker thing? I really don't know. I've never seen it before.






"the more you learn the less you need to follow the republicans". Rick Santorum (former senator from PA) would say, the more you learn the more of a snob you become. Mind you, he himself is a lawyer. Curious, wouldn't you say?

Well, that explains why it was on the back of an Obama fan then....I just thought it meant they meant they were going to take steal or kill.

See, we both do not have health insurance and yet they claim to speak for us! I do have a religous freedom sticker. My sister wrote a letter to the editor of Harrisburg's city's newspaper....someone called her to ask if the can print it...I can't wait to read it as she is very scared for our constitution also.

I would like to thank all the Obama supporters too for all the layoffs...my sister's employment....AMP is laying 5% of its people off....she doesn't know if she is going to have a job and her husband lost his already...she is very worried because if they both lose their jobs, they could lose their home....so thank you Obama supporters for costing my sister her job and the rest of us our religious freedom! Maybe I should start a thread thanking them.

What a concept, Joe! It's going back to basics. Spiritually, we Catholics return to the New Testament. Secularly, as a Country, we can turn to our inspirational document (for USA and many other countries) of our Constitution (and Amendments).

A letter to Cheryl:

Cheryl, as an Obama supporter, and one who understands the dynamics of the economy fairly well, I can tell your sister and brother-in-law this much, and with conviction. The American economy is steadily on the mend. The policies laid out by the Obama administration in the last four years are beginning to work.
She should take heart in this scenario: In January 2009 when Obama took office, 800,000 people were laid off in that month alone, and 700,000 every month after that until the stimulus package was passed, money disbursed, and war-rah the job hemorrhaging stopped, the domino effect of large financial institutions collapsing stopped. Then a modicum economic growth ensued.

In order to get a better grip of what happened in the previous years picture this: eye-drops are great cures for a red eye. But, if one dripped eye-drops (please let no one try this on anyone, they will get hurt and you will go jail or face the death penalty) into a friends glass of water over a few years, you will slowly poison them to death. That in a nutshell is what the entire republican administration did to this great nation's economy for eight years! Bush, Cheney, Newt, Sununu, and Rove with Romney cheering them from his golden stands passed policies that took this country's economy back to the similarities of the great depression of 1929. Although the rest of us kept saying, please stop, the misinformed conservatives' followers had no idea! Unpaid for medicare drug package, two unnecessary unpaid for wars that consumed both blood and treasure from the bottom of the granaries of the American economy, and gutted the regulatory framework that eventually destroyed the checks and balances of a confused capitalist philosophy.

Cheney and friends got rich, they financed more corrupt elections so they can continue the plunder, and to add insult to injury, they redistributed the surplus of the Clinton economic years to among the top wealthiest Americans, who often screamed that they did not need it. But, Bush/Cheney had a plan, give the money back to the wealthy and then call them up to cough up political contributions to finance their next elections. It is a circular dance of the absurd. And as the banks collapsed, citizens lost their savings, health benefits, home values disappearing,....Romney again stood on his golden stand and said...let the real estate bottom out!

So, Obama comes, puts policies in place in an attempt to reverse the eight years of the Bush/Cheney economic abuse, all this while the conservatives, mainly driven by primal, visceral rage, and an eye on the 2012 elections did their best to stop the passage of the economic policies. Do not mention health care, it will confuse you.

Now that the majority of the American people have tamed the republicans by voting back Obama, there is a great chance that his pro-growth policies will have minimal opposition. The result, as we can all see is an expanding economy and more jobs being created. So, to your sister and brother-in-law, I would say; take heart, Obama is back in office, and the good Lord is watching over us. We will be fine, the nation is in good hands!

As for you, I recognize that you are both a sceptic and virulent cynic, but you should find comfort in this letter, too. Thank you!

I can't get past your first sentence and biggest lie...the economy has steadily worsened in the last four years and more people are being laid off now then ever...my family is PROOF of this...we all had jobs prior to this president....I, especially, really don't care to hear your lies...neither do the plethora of babies who will die because of your vote. However, planned parenthood thanks you and so does GM who didn't apy any taxes in 2010 thanks to their buddy, Obama....solyndra supporters thank you for your support too...oh, so many people thank you. Comfort....can you afford to pay for my family...send me YOUR money....that might comfort me....oh, don't worry...we will all be on govt. support soon enough....and one thing I know for sure...is that you do NOT understand the economy....unemployment is higher than ever. Only an idiot with a job would believe we are going "forward"....the rest of us are suffering and in the midst of that suffering have to pay for tripled gas prices....next year if this president keeps going "forward" the dollar will be worth less and jobs will be even harder to get....we posted dozens of links showing all the jobs laying off....what don't you get????? Something liberal is going on there....cynic....LOL...we don't have jobs and those of us who do are losing them (except in good states that have less govt. control and haven't let him mess them up yet perhaps because they will ban obumacare)
