At that time I was being a survivalist....unemployed and needed $$$ to survive.

I made money on every sale however.

Right now we are holding cash but hope to soon convert it into useable goods and products to survive the next few years.

Toilet paper, small engine repair knowledge + other skills to barter, guns, and silver are MORE than good enough.

But dontcha know that he is powerless to stop the extra spending? He powerless to repeal the traitor act, and he's powerless to shut down Gitmo's gulag. Sort of like how a person who had their adjustable mortgage rate double says "I was put into this mess".

10 months in to the job, I think Obama has made valiant efforts to undo the economic delinquency which Bush inflicted upon your economy.

For example in 2002, the US was importing $671billion more than it exported.
US govt was borrowing $55billion per month or $1.8billion per day to fund it's activities.
In 2002.

2002 was the year before Bush lied to the world in order to organise his war in Iraq.

Here's a piece written by Huck Gutman in 2005, regarding Bush

"Mr Bush has embraced deficits which will undermine the long term health of the American economy. The numbers are staggering. The budget deficit is $512 billion.
The current accounts deficit for the first quarter of 2005 was $195.1 billion, which projects to a deficit for 2005 of $780.1 billion. That means that this year alone the United States has financed its lowered taxes, its costly war in Iraq, its hunger for cheap goods, by a total of $1.29 trillion."

How long does it take to unwind all that economic damage?

You tell me?
But unwind it must - and Obama is making the right moves.

What valiant efforts?
Interest rates still low.
Uncontrolled spending.
Expanding the war in Afghanistan.

Okay thought so....then what business is it of yours when it comes to our internal affairs???

Not trying to sound harsh but what we do in our own country is not your concern.
