Not that I think Obama is going to fix anything, but the majority of these handouts and market dives were before Obama ever set a foot in office. much less started anything in motion as President.

Why aren't we complementing the Bush administration on their excellent work as well?

"The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight-of-hand that was ever invented. Banking was conceived in inequity and born in sin. But if you want to continue to be slaves of the bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let the bankers continue to create money and control credit."

- Josiah Charles, President of the Bank of England & 2nd richest man in Great Britain (1880-1941)

And risk being mistaken for a rational, objective, non-partisan critic? Hell no! Let's just blame everything on Obama, that way we can still retain the title of "Republican party mouthpiece" and not have to worry about silly consistancy in our criticisms.

All cigarettes are bad for health, and everybody knows that. It was the cigarette smokers' claim that they were smoking "Light" cigarettes so as to avoid relatively more of the health problems as the manufacturer claimed. Obviously they knew their habit was unhealthy if they were choosing between a "Regular" and "Light".

Why, then, is the tobacco company responsible for the consumers' health? Why does the responsibility of the consumer go out the window when the consumer is uneducated? Whose responsibility is it to educate the consumer, and why does this person / entity bear the responsibility instead of the consumer that you claim should be responsible for him / her self?
What about the on oing lawsuits against fast food companies? They are being sued for precisely the same reasons that tobacco companies are. You cant sidestep a perfect analogy that points out the glaring contradictions in the law.

I have come curiously close to the end, though
Beneath my self indulgent pitiful hole. Defeated I
Concede and move closer. I may find comfort here
I may find peace within the emptiness. How pitiful.
It's calling me...
