The dems., blacks and latinos voted for obama. But with the obamacare  so many will go broke with it, business will not be able to keep employees. But with more people on the dole then work, sooner or later all that free money, phones and insurance will run out and then where will they be?
You`re not even taking to consideration that these idiots are printing 86 billion bucks a week just to pay the interest on the debt, the dollar will be no good in about 6 to 7 months, then all heck will break loose, we learned in the 5th grade why you don`t print more money to solve the problems!

That's not even close to accurate. The US Government takes in revenues over 10 times more than the interest it pays, so there is no need to "print" money. They also only paid out $212 billion in interest in total for 2012, which is significantly less $86 billion per week.

We have a 17 trillion dollar national debt. Obamacare is destroying jobs. The financiers are buying massive qualities of gold. Homeland security has recently purchased 1.6 billion rounds of ammo and is beginning to buy up the storable food supplies. The police have been militarized. If you haven't bought some extra food, water, and some precious metals, I would and soon.

The economy surely isn't going to get any better with most people having to take part time jobs because the full time jobs are decreasing every day - except of course for government jobs.

Back where they started from - having nothing on the road to nowhere  :'(

Oh, yeah Obama couldn't have gotten elected without the help of white people. Short-term memory loss is a terrible affliction  :sad1:

Yep, I know so many people with BA's and higher who work government jobs or part time jobs.

Don't hold your breath. They raised the income tax 66% back in 2011 saying they'd set it back to its original level by 2015. Then they said they were only going to decrease that raise by 50%. Now they're saying it's going to remain permanent. Businesses are moving out as well as the people. I myself am hoping to get out of this state in the next 2-3 years-- I own a small business and this state is just crippling people like me with the mystery taxes that keep popping up.

I would not put your hopes on it. The economy was thought to be getting better until I heard the Detroit Bankruptcy. This tells me the economy is still in a bad shape.

I would really love to visit this utopia people were living in prior to Obama taking office. I really would. Also, apparently in this utopia, it takes less time to fix something than it does to damage it. Also not being immediately out of the woods in one bound means we haven't progressed at all of course.  ::)

I can't even engage people like this anymore. Ridicule is all I have in the tank for them.

I don't think the economy will improve for a while especially now that the US will be involved in the war in Syria.

Preferably I'd like us to stay out of the conflict, but it seems we're attempting to get a coalition to stop the chemical warfare happening over there. If that's all that happens, I'd be okay with it if it stops those weapons (even though nothing is going to fix Syria for a long time). Obama said it best last night- getting majorly involved in the conflict will just set us up to take control of the entire situation like it did in Iraq. It will cost a lot of lives and $. So I'm crossing my fingers that this won't be another Middle Eastern disaster and end up crippling our economy even more.
