Lost is the credibility you once had with Charlie Gibson and John Stossel. Thank goodness I found Stossel on Fox business! You guys just give this president a pass and you deceive yourselves.

That's just the point. We don't want the government involved in every aspect of our lives. But for Obama, Government is the ultimate solution to every problem Americans face. He has always been on the Government teat or someone's teat and has no concept of self-sufficiency. We WANT to be separated from our government. That’s just the point.

Strange word to filter out. anonymous, now you are giving your own opinion about s o c i a l is m. That's changing the subject. You are free to your opinions but that doesn't take away from the point made. Not seeing the difference between Stalin and Marx is like not knowing the difference between aspirin and cocaine. Not sure why you are acting like we were having a conversation where I was defending so ci a lis m and you were against it. That is an assumption on your part. "..that's where your facade falls apart and most disagree with you." What facade. Please quote my words to justify your comment. I am fine with someone arguing with something I state but don't argue with me on made up arguments I never expressed. I repeat what I stated above: Look around and observe and go talk to others. You might find those simple little narratives that you subscibe to are off base. Finally figured out why my posts wouldn’t go through. Strange word to filter out.

The individual human no longer exists. We are all at the mercy of a handful of greedy old men who view the common folk as no more significant than a stray bit of ash they brush off their shirt.

He has done nothing but lie since he got into office and before. He says he is listening, he says he understands- but wait- he is giving the ground rules he wants, not what the people want. If he was truly listening, he would say "OK protestors, make an organized list of what you would like to see change and I will look at it as well as congress." But that isn't going to happen- THEY DON'T CARE FOLKS! Obama is lying. He has done nothing but lie since he got into office and before.

Nothing surprising there, I suppose they are mostly jealous that the current protests are an exotic mix of working class American's and a large portion of young students and not crusty old trailer park trash and ignorant WASP's that has them all upset and whiny, and the fact that the OWS haven't been bought out and co-opted (yet?) by big money fascist corporatists like the Koch brothers---really bothers the tea baggers.
