President Elect Obama -- A fix for the economy

Both Lucid and I have blogged on this extensively Mr. Obama, and it cannot be foreign to you at all. It's called 'The Fair Tax".

If you are serious, and I mean really serious about putting America back on the right economic road and get us back on track check it out: Fairtax.org.

2.5 Million jobs? Easy with the Fair Tax
Economic Stimulus? Easy with the Fair Tax
Save Social Security? Easy with the Fair Tax

What are you waiting for? You told us you were about Change.

So much for "Change" Mr. Obama

There goes Change right down the drain.

Barak Obama is filling his Cabinet and other posts with Clinton Cronies...

I thought he was going to "Change" Washington?

The Great Melting Pot

Last night I had a wonderful discussion with a neighbor of mine who is from Puerto Rico. He is a layer who still practices in Puerto Rico but is looking to retire in the US. During that conversation we spoke about the great melting pot that WAS this country but how it has become more of a country where people are now offended when someone disagrees with them. What I miss most is the ability to have an opposing viewpoint, get into a difficult debate, and then go have a beer with that person... no hard feelings... and perhaps a compromise at the end of the debate. Now if I were to go and say that I disagree with somebody but they are from a religion, color, background, race that they can use against me they may say that it is because of their religion, color, background, race that I am arguing with them, or disagreeing with them.

I find that in my travels everyone is just trying to do the best they can for themselves and for their families. They are trying to do what is right according to what they know is 'right'. Everyone has different life experiences... which is what makes (or made) this country great, powerful, a place everyone wanted to live. Now we are no longer celebrating our differences, but continuing to maintain protected classes and groups. Idiocy.

How about this: Now that we have elected an 'African American' President (I prefer to say we elected an American) can we finally put a nail in the coffin of Affirmative Action? If an 'African American' can be President why give special treatment to any class of people? Is that not the highest office in the free world? Does that not show everyone that the American Dream is real?

Tolerance? Brave 8th Grader...

This is an amazing experiment by young Catherine Vogt. I will not plagiarize the article but I recommend reading it.

I find it interesting that 1) a 14 year old girl came up with this... she gives me hope for the world and 2) that the supporters of the candidate of "HOPE" and "Change" would be so rabid and hateful because of a T-Shirt.

Amazing and interesting at the same time.

My daughter is 15 and is in the Young Republicans club. They had a sign at her high school that correctly stated that Dr. Martin Luther King was a Republican and received many slurs for having such a sign. There could be many books written about discrimination and how it is not unique to skin color as a result of this past election.

Taking a Page From Michele Obama's Book

Today, I am not proud to be an American.

Why? Because today we (the collective American people) have shown to the World that the Presidency of the United States may be purchased by the highest bidder. And for us, the highest bidder is someone that we do not even know. He cannot be questioned, his past associations cannot be discussed, and his citizenship cannot be proven with a valid birth certificate. But none of this matters because he is beyond question - thanks largely to the liberal media.

I'm sorry George, I'm sorry John, I'm sorry Thomas, and Benjamin, and Alexander. I apologize to all of the founders that we were not able remain true the their intent and to the Constitution that has served us so well. We have now elected a man President that believes the Supreme Court should make decisions based upon emotion rather than reason and that punishing accomplishment through taxation will somehow make the economy stronger. Taking money from the "rich" and giving it to the "poor" will only limit additional investment by the rich and encourage the poor to continue their current path.

I hope that the America that I do love is strong enough to survive the "tests" that have been promised by the now Vice President elect.

God be with us all.

##That's my opinion##
