Thankfully (so far) I have been cushioned myself to paying less into their entitlement programs but unfortunately, I think that will end when Obama is president (almost a sure thing)... I don't lke Obama or McCain, both pro-entitlement and handout politicians... yes the majority are selfish idiots and it shows when we have two candidates that reflect their ideology and policies..

Turn off Limbaugh, man....don't let some fat-assed drug addict do your thinking for you.
Republicans in Name Only (RINO)... they behaved as liberals while in the big house... reflective of their constitutients that voted them in... I don't pretend to lump Republicans in one category and Democrats in another... I label my category as Liberal and Conservative... Liberals HAVE republicans as well.. and Conservatives HAVE democrats as well... the past 36 years HAVE been liberal policies... that I blame..I don't listen to Limbaugh.. never have, never will...

Actually you are stealing from the American consumer at the pump. You are a huge part of whats wrong with this economy.

All of that aside, 25% unemployment by Jan 2010 is almost a sure thing.

No, marxist, the federal reserve is stealing from all of us. I'm simply protecting my wealth.

Yeah, I'm kind of glad I listened to the so called by many tin foils and got out of the market when I did. Now the question remains when or whether to get back in...

Do you see ANY good news on the horizon that will drive this market up? Pretty much everything is primed to get worse before it gets better. Just wait till the first bank goes under. If it's Citi, they'll probably have to stop trading.

No, I personally don't see anything good in the future. As far as this manipulated market goes, ain't got no clue no more... Just look at the headlines in subsequent days... sometimes the same day! Stocks rally because oil is up one day; stocks in the drain because oil is up the next day. A few days ago stocks rallied because consumer confidence was at 16-year low! They don't even listen to their own BS within a DAY!

The bottom line is the goal is the murder of the middle class and its achievement has been greatly accelerated lately and the process will continue until we're reduced to a 3rd world country.

Many think SoCal is a third world country now. You can walk through LAX and not hear a word of English. The melting pot has stopped melting and we are seemingly en route to some sort of European two-class society. The question is, how long and painful will the transition be?

Who knows... last few years it's been going on at head-spinning speed.
