    Default Just feeling the pulse a little

    [B][I] I had posted this on another site. It created a little stir. I am just curiuos as to the pulse politically most of you have here, it does'nt make any difference to me and that's what's great about being American "The Freedom to Express our Views" if we were not allowed we'd be no better than China.
    I'll tell a few things about where I stand first.
    # 1. Gun control, I believe its every law abiding citizens right to carry to protect person or property.
    # 2. Social Security,,, promises made better be promises kept, I don't like lookin' at that FICA on my check but better be there for myself as well as my retired parents (and no they are not bleeding the system dry they are recieving what is rightfully thiers)
    #3. Trade. Protectionism in the form of tarriffs is a good thing.How are we to compete with folks working for fifty cents an hour when it costs 75 bucks to fill your car ?
    #4. Capital punishment.. If you are guilty beyond a doubt you should swing quickly (here's your meal eat it fast cause the hangman has things to do)
    # 6. Abortion.. I believe in pro-choice God gave us free will and with that our actions come with reprecussions. Personally I would not to answer to him for that but some people feel the risk is worth it.
    # 7. The Welfare sytem. I believe as a society we need safety net all too many times people are put out of work and fall on hard times.But those that take advantage should weeded out & put to work or face the consequences of thier actions (aka jail time)
    #8. why is leaning a little left makes one darn near the antichrist ??? Could it be far too many have swallowed hook line and sinker all this crap from the radio ? So far my experience with free unchecked, unabashed capitaism is putting myself and fellow Union Brothers & Sisters and countless Americans in the proverbial "Outhouse"
    Now onto the issue at hand..
    "W"
    By Snortin Nortin

    "W" you took office 7 years ago withoiut the popular vote....

    Now your oil rich buddies are getting richer, while I am late on my house note....

    When 911 happened we went to Iraq without propely placed blame....

    But that's ok "W" because when you leave we have McCain....

    My wallet can't take anymore of you and your cronies capitaists views....

    And every nite when I turn on the t.v. some factory closing headlines the evening news....

    Times are tough, gas is high and food ain't cheap....

    But 4 years of McCain governing like Bush,,gives me the creeps....

    You both say you never pass the EFCA....

    You don't care about working Americans, only what your corporate cronies have to say....

    You blame the Unions & our enviromental policies for sending our jobs overseas....

    But it has always been about cheap slave labor, and now you have working Americans on our knees....

    The Republicans can be proud they brought us Hoover and the Great Depression....

    And "W" who brought high oil, the housing crisis, and this darn near if not all out recession....

    Now I'm saying vote Hillary or even Obama....

    But why is it we satellites that can see me in underwear,, but you can't find Osama ????

    So all of you right wingers go ahead and give us McCain....

    But in 4 years when you are out of a job, don't point at our side and yell blame....

    "W" you say "free the markets and it will unchain the shackles from our feet"....

    But every time you do another factory sits empty on our streets....

    So vote how may and vote how you will....

    But don't complain if your side wins[ and our economy is at a standstill....

    I too agree Brother. With a little twist.Hope ya don't mind.
    PS: MA/ means My Answer
    # 1. Gun control, I believe its every law abiding citizens right to carry to protect person or property.
    MA/ Use both hands to steady the aim and get lots of practice.Keep a tight shot pattern.
    # 2. Social Security,,, promises made better be promises kept, I don't like lookin' at that FICA on my check but better be there for myself as well as my retired parents (and no they are not bleeding the system dry they are recieving what is rightfully thiers)
    MA? I whole heartly agree- It should go to those of us who pay or have paid into it all our lives. ( Not for illigials )
    #3. Trade. Protectionism in the form of tarriffs is a good thing.How are we to compete with folks working for fifty cents an hour when it costs 75 bucks to fill your car ?
    MA/ If companys move over the boarder to save money on labor then make them pass the savings on to us if they got to sell their stuff here because nobody overseas wants it.
    #4. Capital punishment.. If you are guilty beyond a doubt you should swing quickly (here's your meal eat it fast cause the hangman has things to do)
    MA/ Once found Guilty give em thirty days till they swing or fry. If they are innocent and its proven they were framed then give the ones who framed them the same punishment.
    # 6. Abortion.. I believe in pro-choice God gave us free will and with that our actions come with reprecussions. Personally I would not to answer to him for that but some people feel the risk is worth it.
    MA/ I feel I don't have the right to tell someone else what to do with their personal lives.They have to live with it.
    # 7. The Welfare sytem. I believe as a society we need safety net all too many times people are put out of work and fall on hard times.But those that take advantage should weeded out & put to work or face the consequences of thier actions (aka jail time)
    MA/ Make them work somehow for it.Example: Picking up litter -cleaning graffitti-That sort of thing. Also wear a colored vest stating they are on welfare while doing the work..Exemptions to this rule would be medical reasons by a reputable Dr.
    #8. why is leaning a little left makes one darn near the antichrist ??? Could it be far too many have swallowed hook line and sinker all this crap from the radio ? So far my experience with free unchecked, unabashed capitaism is putting myself and fellow Union Brothers & Sisters and countless Americans in the proverbial "Outhouse"
    MA/ Left Right or in the middle-who really cares. Its just a damn label given out because of that damn Pollitical Corectness Crowd. Always a Damn label.

    Right on Brother !!

    I got a question why is it when a big-a$$ wall street firm needs help we bail them out, but when Joe Blue-Collar needs help he should pull himself up by the boot-straps and try harder ??? I guess those rich guy's have far too many people relying on them ?? What about Joe Blue-Collars family ??
    I guess the point is everybody needs a boot up now and again but when you or I get it we bleeding the system dry but when some big entity does it "we are saving America" go figure I assumed free market meant the next vulture in line would come along and gobble up the fallen company like a vulture does dead possum on they highway.

    Default Old Mexico


    Down in Old Mexico....

    If your job has not yet relocated, thats where it may go....

    I was listening to the news and the last thing I heard....

    Another factory was relocating,,I thought to myself how obsurd....

    "W" was talking about some more free trade....

    Why don't he do us a favor and include our factories closing dates....

    They are sending our jobs across the Rio Grande....

    In the name of free trade, while screwing the working man....

    They want to send their truckers up here to travel our roads....

    Taking more jobs and hauling our loads....

    "W" was told more no than once...

    But he thinks he is a king,,man that guy is a chump....

    What we really need in this country today....

    Is a politician with big enough cajone's to say....

    We are going to raise tarriffs on all foreign made goods....

    And if you are an American company sending from abroad,, we will double your tarriffs just like we should....

    So when you go to bed and think about the shape our country is in today....

    Ponder the thought of shopping smart and buying "American Made"....


    Just a little more

    Brakes Hell. There ain't a lot left here to outsource unless it's the politicians. It needs to be done retro active. Go back over the last 25 years and sock it to their butts.
