    Either option will work! Work harder and you will lose more...or dont work and the Obama will take care of you anyway!

      A knickname like that IS only approprite when its used to describe black REPUBLICAN politicians. Not democrats.

      Are you sure he did not compare him to "Uncle Sam?"

      Also, I am a bit jealous Obama won. The time he spent in Illinois the only change was our state went in the dumps. At leat we got that first! Look at Illinois, and so will go the rest of the nation.

        You mean FREE healthcare. It will never happen. Obama goes with the polls. Less than 10% said healthcare was an issue on why they voted. Why give the people something they dont want?

          Re: Congratulations Barack Obama!

          I worked thrity years in the Bronx and watched buildings being rehab'd with new walls, real hardwood floors and new appliances, all for folks who did not work. Nobody did that for me and one third or more of my pay check went to taxes. That bothered me and still does, at the same time wealthy folks worked all the tax loop holes and paid very little taxes. The system is unfair to the working middle class and unless there is some kind of flat tax it will continue. I agree that either way, those who do not work and earn income don't pay. Who will pay for the war in iraq, the bailout? Us, the folks who are reading this. Our government can't hand out money unless they collect it from working people. We have a lot of debt to make up and we are going to pay as long as we earn, so make up your mind and get on with your life. I don't agree with welfare if people are fit and there are jobs, same goes for bailouts and tax loopholes for the wealthy.

            Please don't put anything there that is not there. I was referring to Uncle Obama as in Uncle Sam. It has to do with Obama's Socialist leanings.

              Northern Illinois Plumber,


              Uncle Tom is a pejorative for a black person who is perceived by others as behaving in a subservient manner to White American authority figures, or as seeking ingratiation with them by way of unnecessary accommodation.
              It has NOTHING at all to do with what party, Dem or Rep. The context used was clearly aimed at being a racist remark toward our new Commander in Chief. I guess real patriotism only goes so far with some "patriotic" folks. Then look at the comments made in another thread about "there is no first family." Gee, wonder what THAT meant!!!


              This stuff is getting out of line here.

                I doubt it meant anything more than the fact that his picture didn't show up. Similar comments have been made about a non photo in other threads as well. The original poster understood it to mean he did not attach his photo. So he re-attached it.

                There is no need to look into something any more than it is.

                    Mark, I think some of us are expecting the worst responses but I don't think that was your intention. I believe you are a good man and hope others will follow your lead. I just don't know what people can realistly expect now? Will Obama go after bin laden in afgahanistan, will he work for alternative energy, will he have any positive impact on all these serious problems facing our nation? I have a bad feeling much of it will be out of his control as I believe it would have been had Senator McCain been elected. I don't blame President Bush for going into iraq and he had no control onver the economy or oil prices, but together with the rest of our legislators some things should have been done and still need to be done.

                      "..and God gave them over to a reprobate mind..."
                      So, how do you like your unborn/nearly born/newly born murdered, with scissors jammed into the back of skull after pulling the baby out MOST of the way or go ahead and deliver them and put them on a shelf in the dirty linen closet. Pretty soon, you'll be paying for it with YOUR tax dollars. Obama promised it.."The first thing I'd do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. That's the first thing that I'd do." -- Senator Barack Obama, speaking to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, July 17, 2007

                      Oh, and if you've got a 401k, you might want to cash it out now and take the 40% hit. The last I heard, O'admin intends to take it over, pay you 3% (basically inflation rate) and add a measly $600.00 a year.
                      But you know, "..the simplistic notion that people with wealth are entitled to keep it.." dem rep Jim Moran

                      The elitist media chose who they wanted to be president and the sheep obediently followed.

                      Welcome him? No, I think not. I will fight against the principles he stands for and his distorted vision of our country.

                        Okay to prevent this from getting closed please try and act like adults. If some were offended by my comments because they care to take them out of content that is on them. My Uncle Obama comment had absolutely nothing to do with "Uncle Tom" it had to do with "Uncle Sam". I guess when you don't think in those terms it doesn't cross your mind others might. As more my comment on the missing picture YOU MUST BE KIDDING! Had you actually took the time to read the post you would have clearly seen the OP's link was broken.

                          I agree with Mark, this is a highly emotional time for all of us but we can rise to the occassion. Surely there are some who are upset for reasons other than our new President's politics but they are not the majority. The honeymoon with the media will end soon and President Obama will either deliver or face the music. I still think this Forum is better than most of the Internet sites where people speak their minds.

                            Joe the plumber will not be taxed higher now. If you still think that you are not paying attention. Your prerogative.

                            Every citizen of Alaska got a stipend from the oil industry under Palin. That is by definition socialism. That is spreading the wealth. That is freaking Marxist. But if a dem hints that those who are very well off and above the middle class pays more a whole lot of folks who will never see that tax bracket believe they are going down even when the plan calls for them to get tax cuts.

                            That is partly why I wanted politics opened up on here again, people were just flat wrong in their interpretation of the tax plans. It is not on Businesses that sell over $250,000.

                            But hey, if y'all want to get out cheap let me know your asking price. I'll take it over and keep you on as an employee if you want. Hell, after I collect a few of you and I'm making over a quarter million a year personally I'll even donate the equivalent of my tax increase to charity. Still think I'll be doing pretty good.

                              It depends on whether you believe Obama. I take the stand that I have no reason to trust him. Others take the stand that they have no reason not to trust him.

                              I disagree, the state has an asset (oil) that everyone in the state owns. They could sell it outright and get a bunch of money and then cut everyone a big check (or save it for a rainy day), but instead they lease it with royalties and pay a dividend.
