    The man is right. He does NOT exaggerate. For years, we have been victimized by politicians who would be run out of other countries. In America, anything is tolerated, as long as the party in power gets its way. When you are ‘blessed’ by the head crime
    boss/politician, you’re protected. Blend taxation without representation, no accountability by those who wield power, no way to address legitimate grievances, no checks and balances, a lunatic, power-mad Congress and White House, America has
    the perfect storm. America is not obligated to suffer for elected or appointed scum. If those ‘in charge’ will not do their job(s), then let them step aside, or learn the hard way that history speaks with a voice that forces ALL to listen.

    I met a young man (about 25 ) who was born and raised in Iran. I asked him what he thought the recent election in Iran. He smiled and asked why Americams were surprised about the election results. He said the election was the same as all the elections in recent years in Iran. ALL CORRUPT!
    He added that everyone in Iran or other third world countries (His words) expect their elections to be corrupt. He added that the big surprise for him was that American elections were also corrupt. The greatest nation ever, controlled by thieves!
    We talked a little more and I told him I watched Chris Dodd make statements about a Senate bill and he said he had nothing to do about certain changes and the very next day I watched him say the opposite?? I also read an article that stated Obama and Dodd and McCain all got money from Fannie mae and or Freddie mac.
    We have congressmen and senators in prison too often.
    There are too many stories about improper greed of politicians to be listed here. I have lived a long time and am delusioned!! Did I mention Nancy Pelosi. Nuff said.
    What do I tell my grand kids about our politicians??
    Can you imagin=e the Chairman of the banking committee getting mony donatioins from BANKS??? What a country!

    I agree with Craig and I am not paying more taxes either. If enough people say ENOUGH! I am not paying for things I don’t agree with, I have to keep a budget the FEDS should to! and we are all defintiely Mad as Hell and we are not going to take it anymore… Jn

  • rice,charlotte

    I agree with Craig T Nelson, I just wish he would form a group to march on Washington. Most Americans are upset and want to stop this countries race to Socialism. They mail congress, have tea parties and marches but they need some ‘star power’ to get all of the tea parties together to march, what a mighty army we would have. Thousands of people go to each tea party but they get no press coverage. If Mr Nelson and some of his Hollywood friends would get together and get all of these groups together we could take back America! Trouble is we all complain ,write our congress and call radio but it gets nothing done. WE NEED A LEADER.

AND I HAVE SAW OTHER RATINGS AND POLLS WHERE ODUNBO LOST THIS ELECTION A LOT OF FOREIGN MONIES WAS PAID ON THIS ELECTION, OH AND ELECTION 2010 IS COMING UP FOR YOUR SENETORS.

  • against fascism

    I agree with Craig Nelson. I have already quit letting them take tax money out of my check and have decided that as long as I don’t have any representation I won’t be paying any taxes either. And I believe NOT reading the bills before they are signed, or Congress not making the 3:00 am amendments available to my congressman to read is NO REPRESENTATION. There doesn’t seem to be any orher way to make them listen to us. They have forgotten that it is our money, not theirs! It’s time we withhold it I say!

    Obama gave a good speech tonite about what he wants for healthcare , but the government may not get this throuh the senate Nobody trusts the government being able to Run the big Insurance cos , big banks ,the bankrupt auto companies . Health care might even be a legitmate concern for the government to be concerned with , but the others were not . We better sell those companies as quick as we can before they start costing us money we wont have

  • Amol

    Obama’s healthcare is nothing but a power grab. When they control healthcare they will be able to tell you what to eat, drink, smoke, what time to go to bed, anything else that has an effect on health. This has to be stopped. Every time Obama opens his mouth he lies.

  • BARB

    The man child has Ruch Limbaugh calls him has never liked America and what it stands for he grew up with the teachings of his Mother whom was a 100% socialist and raised in muslim he has a very warped mind and has set out to bring down this country so we can all bow down to him he thinks he will be head over the whole world and they will have to listen to him. If you ever listen to his speaches he gave in other countries he thinks he is the anit-christ all though he is not he very well might be a the false prophet making way for the anti-christ not realizing he his a puppet thinking he his a King.

    I totally agree with Craig about not paying taxes, but have no way to gather the entire population into doing the same. Our government officials have taxed us to death. The IRS is more like nazis than anything else. I live on 13,000 per year with a $500 mortgage. I barely make it month to month. The IRS needs to be FIRED. There needs to be a fair taxation across the country that we as individuals pay heed to without penalties or threats of jail & fines.

    Keep in mind that it’s the house of representatives & congress that pass the laws & bills that tax us so heavily. 545 people decide for us. This can be stopped.

    Then there’s Obama. People are still trying to prove his birthplace & he pays so well to keep that hidden, plus now, thank God, they are looking into his passport(s). He became an Indonesian citizen when he moved there with his mother at an early age. He was allowed to have duel citizenship until age 21. Then he must choose to be a citizen of Indonesia or America. His mother was American born in Kansas. In 1983, just about the time he would have to renew his Indonesian passport, he traveled there on the pretense to see his mother, who at this time had divorced her 2nd husband (Soetoro) & was in Hawaii in 1983. Indonesia requires one to renew their passports every 5 years. Do the math.

    There has been some new findings with the Supreme Court, but I doubt it’s public knowledge yet. He went to college as a foreign student & got government funds for school. Which means he was not here as an American citizen.

    ( “Americans for Freedom of Information” has Released copies of President Obama’s college transcripts from Occidental College. Released today, the transcript school indicates that Obama, under the name Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia as an undergraduate. The transcript was released by Occidental College in compliance with a court order in a suit brought by the group in the Superior Court of California. The transcript shows that Obama (Soetoro) applied for financial aid and was awarded a fellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program. To qualify, for the scholarship, a student must claim foreign citizenship.)

    So there may be hope yet to get him out of the white house. If there was nothing to hide & he’s telling the truth (doubtful), then why pay so much money to hide his past & where he was born???

    Craig, if you can put together a group of big names that will do the same as you, & put up a site where people can sign on to “stop paying the IRS), plus have one good attorney to help all of us, I know the list will grow in minutes. I, for one, would sign it.
