I know of a company that was making 184% profit making Phillips bits in USA; in Taiwan they could make 210% profit. So they moved to Taiwan.

You can't believe anyone. Period.
Romney feels that he deserves to be president, and will say anything to do so. The republican party will twist any facts into "truths"; they have the art of spin down to a science. Democrats are no better; their just not as good at it yet.

Bottom line is greed.

How is a man (woman) worth 5 million $ a year? That's what CEO and upper management get. Some much more. But do they care about others that are less fortunate? No. Henry Ford paid $5 a day so that his worker could afford to buy his cars. Companies today cut workers wages and have no care as to if they can afford to buy their products because someone else will. Stupid.

Politicians have scared the average Joe. Blame it on the terrorists, Blame it on the auto workers, Blame it on the public employees, the Teachers, the Elderly, and what next, the Middle Class?

There has been such a disconnect between politicians and average Joe for many years. Frustrated, we have voted in term limits in hopes of getting in new people to do the job right, when that hasn't worked, we vote out the incumbent, again in hopes the new one will listen. Now, us average Joes are voting on propositions that will change individual states constitutions because the legislatures still do not listen and do what they want. We have even started new parties in hopes of getting the change average Joe wants. Still no luck.

On my 18th birthday, my father sat down with me and discussed how to vote. He told me at times, I would have to chose between the lesser of two evils. For the past 20 years I have done that, only to find that the winner declares that"they have a clear mandate from the people" to enact action. His action that is. His parties action too.

He doesn't have a clear mandate from the people to enact action. Not really, the other guy sucked more.

So, I have come to the conclusion that they all lie, they do not care for average Joe, and they refuse to listen to average Joe. They will tell us what we want, what we are going to get, and what more we are going to give.

One politician said that teachers teach for the love of teaching, not money. They cut teacher wages, health care, retirement, and then made teachers pay more. I wonder if politicians would like to be treated the same way.

So, on Tuesday, I will wake up, go to the voting booth and hope, really hope, that on the ballot there is a third option, the option for "None of the above and we start will all new candidates". Maybe then, politicians would listen to average Joe.

What to do you think?

What do I think?

The best Liar always wins.

Most likely the youngest people in this country will determine our future, scary!

Requardless who our president is, nothing will get passed the do nothing House and Senate.

Reguardless of all the spin put on Jeep, looks like China will be making Jeeps soon. Bet China's Jeep parts will find their way to the US.

We are all going to be in trouble real soon and it will be the other guy's fault.
