I believe President Obama is sincere in his desire to want to improve the conditions of America. It's just too bad tht he cannot do it alone. The game stands - Republicans are always looking to remove the Democratic President and vice verse.

See, to be perfectly honest, it is not really about what is best for the country.

Still, I enjoyed President Obama's enthusiam.

Good speech. You know even his supposed "opponents" were sitting there in the audience, wishing they had the charisma and intelligence that Obama has.

Yeah, it was a great speech. He almost brought John Boehner to tears a few times, which was priceless.

My beleaguered take on the State of the Union Address;Obama once again did not take advantage of an oppertunity to level with America on the eve on the greatest financial collapse in American history. He seems to have no idea what is going on, he says the economy is recovering, nothing could be further from the truth. He disingenuously made a big deal out of a $400 billion spending cut over 5 years, that's how much we've increased spending just this year alone. He's not cutting spending, he's decreasing the rate of increase in spending. He tries to dress it up by calling spending "investing" like "we're investing in in education", but we're not investing, we're not even educating people, we're just spending money on education, investing means you purchase something because you want a return on your money. There are people with college degrees who are unemployed now and working in McDonalds, how will more educated people help the economy? The education is secondary the whole purpose is to spend, spend on anything to keep the bubble juiced for another few months.

(fixed-why am I digressing if I'm aware of it? )

Sorry to pop the sunshine bubble. If it makes you feel better 2x Bush, Clinton, Reagan were just as bad, and the republicans will make all the same mistakes when it's their turn to be president because all they do is waste our money on different things. I hope he loses the election just so that the shit goes down on someone else's watch and the idea of a black president doesn't become a national joke. That's the best I'm hoping for :( .

Reflect upon the conditions of America back when MLK stood and made his famous "I Have A Dream" speech, then tell me if the idea of a black president is a joke.

Thanks for phrasing an asshole version of what I said (a thought I attributed to other people-not to mention it only existed hypothetically and in the future), don't you know what the cultural effect will be if Barack were to be the best or worst president in recent memory?

BTW take that!

Honestly, I don't really care what Schiff has to say. The argument is as old as the departure from the gold standard, and its never panned out. You think this is the first cry of doom? Its like crying wolf at this point.

We'll see in a couple of years and revive this thread.

Not really, maybe in the sense that I've found ways to be more proactive than just paul revering my views. I've been studying sustainable agriculture so I can meet my own needs and help others with their food/energy/money situation, which I think'll be pretty bad once everything hits. As far as inflation, I'm less focused on it, my main thing is we have a 100% chance of total economic meltdown, and whether that represents a 9/10 chance of hyp inflation with a 1/10 chance of deflation is not really important to me to think about, I'm looking at stuff like the rates on ten year treasuries to rise and signal the last five minutes of our proverbial fourth quarter. Some huge news relating to this that came out a few days ago was China said they are no longer going to increase their reserves, that is they will not loan us $100 billion a week anymore, fed'll have to make up that slack, think that's a point for hyp inflation.

Check back with you in a year too. The medicare expansion rolled out with just about the same reaction. I year later, seniors loved it and nobody has talked much about it since.
