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?"

Sadly we have a president that does not believe in the American way and believes in Socialism. I do not see much change until a change in power.We need the Reagan Paridyme. Give the power to the people. Political Hacks spending money, has never done anything for anybody! History shows this.America is not the problem it is the Solution!.A country that was founded on the idea, In God we trust! God Bless America.

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:)

The US Economy has had it bad break, but the worst that it went through was falling for the scheme of 'foreign investments' a better word for plunder. The Economy will remain in the doldrums for quite some time, until America gets smarter again. There will be no actual recovery until the jobs recovery kicks in, if it ever does.

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!!

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. Obama is the most pro-abortion president ever, that sent a clear message to God as to what our counrty thinks of His laws. We should expect the economy to get much worse.....

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.. You have to make a bit of your own destiney.. Just my quick (and somewhat disjointed) thoughts.. g

A big change in November will send a message that the American people dissagree with the direction this country is heading. The reason this country is great is because of free enterprise. In the constitution we are given the persuit of life, liberity and happiness. They are not guarenteed. Smaller government not government banks, healthcare and insurance.

With real unemployment at 20%+ (http://www.shadowstats.com/) and interest rates poised to go higher this year from printing all this worthless money, things are not good for the future of American business. You really have to be ignorant or anti-American to have voted for the crazy Kenyan who doesn't even know how many states there are in this country (see the moron in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpGH02DtIws). And with the Egyptian foreign minister telling the world that Barry admitted to being a muslim ( http://www.wnd.com/?pageId=166905), I mean...really. Turn your TV's off people and pick up a book to turn your mind on already! He's a Marxist liar and he's less intelligent than Bush, not that he was any good. At all.

I have to agree with Ron below. Several years ago, an orthodox Catholic newspaper talked about just that. I have seen it happening. Maybe that's why they are trying to do away with our Constitution? And what about the paper dollar? We (U.S. Canada, and Mexico) will be called a "region" and we won't have our wonderful country anymore. How will everyone feel when they cannot think of themselves as "an American" any more? A sad, sad, sad, day is coming!

Prediction: the market will crumble when people least expect it. Dump stocks now and put your money in hard assets like gold, silver, and property. The dollar will be replaced by a world currency or a currency combining Mexico, Canada, and US (Amero). The Private Bankers of the world know if they can control the flow of currencies then they can manipulate mass populations and global markets. Sorry about the gloom and doom, just being honest. God Bless.

The banks have to stop paying themselves. The oil companies have to stop paying themselves . The Govt. needs to live on the money us middle class are living on and see how they like it ! Is this the kind of "Change" people wanted ???? And how about Obama on gay issues and shoving it down our throats ? Or his wanting more abortions ? I don't even want to think how upset God is with this " A Godly Nation " ?? We were suppose to be founded on Christian principles . What happened ? Where did they go ? Did I sleep for too long and miss something ?
