It amazes me how some people are still in denial. I worked hard to defeat "OBAMA" in November. I believe he did/does not want what is best for our country. I stepped way out of my comfort zone to campaign against him and to save this country. Though we won North Carolina we lost the country.

I now have a new attitude. We who are expecting the worse will be able to deal with issues better than those who believe government will take care of them and that everything is okay. Boy are they in for a shock. Higher food bills, electric bills and medical costs are just the beginning. Margaret Thatcher said it best "The trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money".

Increasing the minimum wage to $9.00 is absurd. Unemployment will go from bad to worse if this occurs. Companies just can't afford it.

Crime rate is skyrocketing (because comunities can not afford to pay law enforsement officers) but yet they want to take away our guns.

Common sense has gone out the door. I recently heard about the 5th grader who bought a paper gun (a folded piece of paper with the corner torn off) to schood. She was searched and called a murderer. Come on folks...it is paper and looks like an "L". And that is called protecting our children. I believe that is the worst kind of child abuse. Mentally attacking a child is so cruel.

I pray that people will wake up.

Geri: Thank you for working so hard to defeat Obama. Many conscientious Americans did also. At least you got to see your state
defeat Obama. Many of us did not. God bless you for your work.

things are getting rough--thats for sure. but the world has survived much worse than this just in the 20th century alone. lets all toughen up and stop being chicken littles.are we gonna be crybabies??

there is a lot of good news going on in the usa now economically----of course not due in anyway to Obama intentionally. Many municipalities are finally going bankrupt(esp in California)-and especially in highly liberal municipalities.This is very good news because horrible union contracts and out of control spending can be legally confronted.--And of course the irony is that these positive changes are being done by those of the same party that caused much(not all)of the mess.

so lets get out there..work hard,fight hard and create the future vs being do-nothings who stand by and get swept along by events.

Exactly; I'm generally referring to the destruction of this current society. Not of humanity. It'll just be a rather bumpy shift from our society to whatever follows.

There'll be a good die off, people might find their diabetes meds are too expensive, or that importation of antibotics is interupted, and that factories making stuff aren't in operation, and that supermarkets aren't stocked with box macc & cheese.

Plus all the kids playing World of Warcraft might be in for a shock.

I will miss my Draenei Shammy though. ;_;

Money, lands, titles, power..nothing...those pro-life Catholics fight for something that I've never had, and I took it from them when I betrayed them and I saw it in their faces on the battlefield, and it's tearing me apart."

I like to think that society is poking the sleeping giant.

The Church will wake up eventually, when it does, there'll be trouble.... Lion

Based on my understanding, the ruling elites, or at least the most influential of them, deliberately have created this massive economic crisis to wreck economies as well as to consolidate their own power over those ruined economies. The end result probably will be that they cause a huge collapse and take everyone down with them. These people have a habit of self-destructing.

I wish they would apply their overpopulation beliefs on themselves. All the talk about excess eaters and lives not worth living definitely could be argued to apply to members of these incredibly wealthy families.

Ed, on CM, we have been very aware of the liberal bend of the media. As a matter of a fact, it is more than a
liberal bend. It is down right lies or truth stretched to point of not being relevant.

Personally, I don't know how listeners can ever believe a word the President says when he says one thing
one day and the exact opposit the next day. He may not be the fourth estate, but he messes with truth
just like the media does.

How do you find your fellow military? Are they very liberal or conservative, or mixed?

The MSM are a source for mass confusion regardless of whether they are right or left or in-between. There just aren't many dissident media.

the second time.

Dennis Rodrick as Ambassador to Korea

Government in Sequester

Incarcerated people let out on the streets

US sending aid to rebels in Syria

Same sex marriage all of a sudden condoned by Obama in his second term, not his first

True cost of Obama's healthcare kicking in (and it is a pain in the pocketbook)

Prices in grocery store skyrocketing

And stock market is about to hit its highest point ever................

Nothing makes sense anymore.

(And additional news is that we will soon have two Popes.)

I think the US Guvmint figured we needed to send someone to North Korea just as loopy as Kim Jong Un to relate. Appears to have worked- they are now bosom buddies!
