    Re: Obama Announcement

    It seems as though many of us agree that things would not be much different if John McCain had won the Presidency. I ask the Forum, if neither party has a solution to our unsecured borders, rising debt, growing unemployment and other serious problems, are we headed for a depression?

      Re: Obama Announcement

      personally I think McCain did as well as he did because of Palin,

      McCain turned his back Republican efforts more or as much as any on his side of the isle and voted with the Democrats when Bush was president,

      IMO all McCain was and is, is a RINO, (Republican in name only), after the republicans pushed McCain into the lime light and pushed him to Candidate status,

      when it came to the last presidential election we IMO had a choice of a ultra liberal or a moderate, Democrat,

      I really do not know what the Republican party stands for or is or there goals or principals are any more,

      at least I know what Palin stands for and what she believes,

      IS she the person for the job of president, I do not know,

      I personally think if she was president there would be less problems than what Obama has made. I think there would be more jobs and the economy would be better, and less pitting class against class, and race against race, and religion against religion,

      and as far as mis speak,
      you can see Russia across the Bering Strait, at one point it is only about 2 miles apart,

      it was Tina Fae that said you can see Russia from my house,
      These two islands are situated in the middle of the Bering Strait 3 km apart. The Russian/American border (also the International Date Line) runs between them. The smaller of these granite islands is American. http://www.angusadventures.com/beringstrait.html
      here is a web cam on the American side if you want to look at Russia your self,
      http://www.webcams.travel/webcam/123...iomede-Diomede

      and the main land masses are only about 50 miles apart. bypassing the two small islands,

      currently the only hope Business have Under Obama is more taxes, more regulation, and less reward for your hard work, and more much more control over your personal life, and business life, and untill these things fully kick in, (health care) who is willing to step out and hire or enlarge there business, even if there doing well.

      even this new proposal on the infustructor is to tax the oil companies to build it, there goes fuel prices, UP and UP and UP,

        Re: Obama Announcement
        Palin said, "They're our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska"

        This is technically true if you consider the island of Little Diomede. You can see the Russian island, Big Diomede. Here is an article from CNN:

        "Just when you thought the whole 'I can see Russia from Alaska' thing couldn't get any funnier...CNN's Gary Tuchman delivers the goods: it turns out that Sarah Palin has never seen Russia from Alaska.

        "Tuchman went up to the part of Alaska from which you can actually see Russia, a remote island called Little Diomede located just 2.4 miles from its Russian twin, Big Diomede.
        It turns out Gary Tuchman's trip to Little Diomede sets him apart from Sarah Palin -- because she's never actually been there, nor has she set eyes on its neighbor in Russia.

        "Tuchman says that only 150 people live on Little Diomede, and that the town of Diomede has no streets and no cars. The poverty rate is over 40%, there is no television, and the only practical way to reach it is by helicopter. Anchorage (near Palin's hometown) is 550 miles away.

        "No Alaskan governor has ever visited Little Diomede, though indicted U.S. Senator Ted Stevens has made the trip. The town's residents barely knew who Palin was, and one of them didn't know she was the VP nominee.

        "It's going to be fun watching McCain-land spin this one, and it's going to be even more fun watching Tina Fey parody it."

        Next, here's a link to a video of an interview that Palin gave to Katie Couric. This is a follow-up to the original interview she gave to Charles Gibson that started the whole thing.

        http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/0..._n_129318.html


        Now, the point of the issue is not the geography of the Bering Strait. The point is that this person has no qualifications in international diplomacy (or anything alse, as near as I can tell). Not to say that Obama is much if any better. But Obama's failings don't give Palin any more credibility.

        The other point is that Palin did not come up with a better answer for Couric than she did for Gibson. Had she even laughed at herself, it would have been a better answer than persisting in claiming that this gives her experience in international diplomacy.

        What "I" know about Palin is that she hasn't actually proposed a single thing that will help with the economy or any other serious issue this country faces. She has almost no relevant experience as a significant executive leader (just over a year as governor).

        Would she be better than Obama? I don't know. If you give enough typewriters to enough chimpanzees and wait long enough, statistically one of them will eventually type out "War and Peace". It would be a long wait.

        What I do know for a fact is that she turned her back on Alaska (they probably didn't mind) to promote her own White House aspirations.

        I certainly support almost nothing Obama has done, including today's proposed $200B in corporate tax cuts. I do however, shudder at the notion that Palin is even spoken about as a potential Chief Executive. It scares me that folks take her seriously.

          We've been headed for a depression since 1990. I think it's here.

          From wisegeekdotcom:

          "In general, the Great Depression was marked by a significant decrease in industry and significant job loss. Earning less money meant less money for purchases of consumer goods, or for investments. Failure to invest or purchase meant companies could not rehire workers. There was a greater dependence on public assistance, and job recovery was minimal. "

          The other thing they say is that in a depression, there needs to be a significant decrease in the GDP. We haven't seen that part... yet. But I wonder if a lot of that has to do with accounting.

              Re: Obama Announcement

              The Sarah Paline thing is sort of a really bad joke, IMO. But the economy and the country is in such a bad state after the Bush administration, almost anything looks good.

              But as far as the Obama "announcement" is concerned, I think it has some validity. This countries infrastructure is falling apart and it has been for half a century. At what point does someone, anyone step forward and spend some money, create some jobs and get America's infrastructure back under a proper maintenance plan. We are spending a fraction of what other countries are spending.

              But, I do have to agree that this isn't going to really fix America's unemployment problem to any large amount. Yes, it will make jobs and it will give a larger number of workers and income. In turn they will be buying more lunches, more motel rooms, spending more time traveling to and from the job sites. They'll be making more money for thier families and that means they'll be buying newer vehicles, TV's, refrigerators, clothes, etc. And of course with that comes durable goods... inventories will be used up and need to be replenished.

              But that is where "helping America" would probably stop. For as Andy_M points out... most of those goods will be coming from China!!!

              So at what point does our government, both Democrat and Republican, put their heads together and make some decisions that are good for the American worker?

She has a degee in communications, was the mayor of a podunk city in Alaska, and served as Governor for a very short time when she was selected as VP. She was a TV commentator and, oh yeah, won a beauty pageant or two. She bailed on Alaska after just two years, demonstrating her clear resolve to support her state. Clearly she has stars in her eyes.

                  This impresses you? Does any of this in any way shape or form qualify her to hold the nuclear codes? The prospect is terrifying.

                  Obama was also painfully light on experience, but at least he has a strong education and was in the Senate... which is more impressive than Palin's "experience". But let's be clear. The Dems presented two options in the primaries. Clinton, who was expected to carry the female vote by a wide margin, and Obama, who was expected to (and did) carry the black vote.
                  I would MUCH rather have Palin with launch codes, than this turkey we have now. How does a racist and a man with ties to terrorists (Bill Ayers etc.) win a Presidential election? Obama should of been investigated by the F.B.I. for the people he associated himself with in the past. If Obama was a regular citizen, he never would of got into the F.B.I. because of his background..and that's a fact. But yet he won an election, and we put him into one of the most sacred offices in the country? lol Unbelievable!!

                  Palin bailed out on Alaska..is that how it went? I didn't realize she wasn't allowed to leave on her own terms to better herself politically. Since when does she need to approval of the American people with what she does for her own career? She stepped down so she could be more of an attack dog and line herself up to make a run at the Presidency in 2012. Last time I looked..there is nothing wrong with that. Have you not left a job in your life to better yourself? Or shall I say... did you bail on your fellow workers for your own personal gain?

                  Obama is nothing more than a Novelty...and you voted for that. You helped put a racist and a man tied to terrorist's into the white house..how does that make you feel now? I see you obviously want him out now..but to me that tells me you didn't know what the heck you were voting for. Everything is well documented on this guy..and that was acceptable to you?

                  So it was either the war hero and woman with executive experience versus..a community organizer - racist - and ties to terrorists, and a blowhard senator from Delaware that most of the Democratic party didn't even like. Which one makes more sense to you?

                  I'm glad to see that the people who voted for this clown, is showing America's children that it's OK to be a racist and terrorist.

                    Not as bad of a joke as Obama, and the people who got DUPED by him. That's more laughable in itself, because these people think they are educated! lol

                        I know once again your just stating your 'opinion' which you are welcome to have, but do you care to back up this opinion with any facts? You are claiming Obama is a terrorist? Could you please provide some terrorist acts he's committed? You are claiming he is racist? Could you please provide some racist acts he's committed?

                        If you are simply playing the guilt by association game? I can play that to. Name any politician and I'll connect them to racist and terrorist acts through association too. It's a fun game to play but it's entirely meaningless.

                        When comparing Sarah Palin to Barrack Obama I'd take the Constitutional scholar over that moron any day.

                              I guess sitting in Reverend Wright's church for 20 years listening to hatred of white people didn't happen. Calling white people "typical" isn't a racist statement either. Eric Holder..Obama's appointee for Attorney general..swept the black panther case under the rug after the incident in Philadelphia (my city) in where the black panther was calling for the killing of white babies. Why were no charges brought up? How about Michelle Obama's thesis she wrote 20 years ago using words like "Black power"?

                              Isn't association with terrorists an act itself? Being friends with Bill Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dohrn doesn't count? How about Van Jones who wants militant type attacks in the streets of America. How about Andy Stern? Who advocates violence as well, and video captured of his members attacking others at Union events.

                              While you're chewing on these concrete facts for awhile, e-mail the Constitutional scholar, and tell him that we only have 50 states in America..not 57.

                              You're right..none of this stuff happened and I'm using my biased opinions as facts. hehe

                                The Bush justice dept. reviewed the BP case and did not pursue it. It was a two goofy looking black guys in front of a polling place in black neighborhood. Who in the Hell were they going to strong arm into voting for Obama?
