Changes in America Since 2006 and the Real Cost of Illegal Immigrants

Part 1:

This has all taken place in just two years.
Remember the election in 2006? Thought you might like to read the following:
A little over two years ago:
1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high;
2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon (national average);
3) The unemployment rate was 4.5%.
Since voting in a Democratic Congress in 2006 we have seen:
1) Consumer confidence plummets;
2) The cost of regular gasoline soar to over $4.00 a gallon;
3) Unemployment is up to 5% (a 10% increase);
4) American households have seen $2.3 trillion in equity value evaporate (stock and mutual fund losses);
5) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $1.2 trillion dollars;
6) 1% of American homes are in foreclosure.
America voted for change in 2006 and we got it!
Remember, it's Congress that makes law not the President. He has to work with what's handed to him.

Part 2:

Taxes...Whether Democrat or a Republican you will find these statistics enlightening and amazing.
Remember, the Clinton column is where Obama wants us to

Taxes under Clinton 1999 Taxes under Bush 2008
Single making 30K - tax $8,400 Single making 30K - tax $4,500
Single making 50K - tax $14,000 Single making 50K - tax $12,500
Single making 75K - tax $23,250 Single making 75K - tax $18,750
Married making 60K - tax $16,800 Married making 60K- tax $9,000
Married making 75K - tax $21,000 Married making 75K - tax $18,750
Married making 125K - tax $38,750 Married making 125K - tax $31,250

It is amazing how many people that fall into the categories above think Bush is screwing them and Bill Clinton was the greatest President ever. If Obama is elected, he says he will repeal the Bush tax cuts and a good portion of the people that fall into the categories above can't wait for it to happen. This is like the movie 'The Sting' with Paul Newman; you scam somebody out of some money and they don't even know what happened.

Excellent post. I wish the newspapers would print something like that but we all know they aren't intersted in truth

Amazing, dems have had control for 24 months but the previous 12 years that the republicans had control I guess everthing was just peaches and cream. What, things turned to shit in that short of time. Lets see. They have to have 60% control I believe and the president can veto that.

So under Bush this is what happened.

Emergency Management: They completely failed to manage the first large-scale emergency since 9/11. Despite all their big talk and hundreds of billions of dollars spent on homeland security over the past four years, this administration proved itself stunningly incompetent when faced with an actual emergency. (Katrina Relief Funds Squandered)

Fiscal Management: America is broke. No wait, we're worse than broke. In less than five years these borrow and spend-thrifts have nearly doubled our national debt, to a stunning $10.2 trillion. These are not your father's Republicans who treated public dollars as though they were an endangered species. These Republicans waste money in ways and in quantities that make those old tax and spend liberals of yore look like tight-fisted Scots.

This administration is so incompetent that you can just throw a dart at the front page of your morning paper and whatever story of importance it hits will prove my point.

Katrina relief: Eleven thousand spanking new mobile homes sinking into the Arkansas mud. Seems no one in the administration knew there were federal and state laws prohibiting trailers in flood zones. Oops. That little mistake cost you $850 million -- and counting.

Medicare Drug Program: This $50 billion white elephant debuted by trampling many of those it was supposed to save. The mess forced states to step in and try to save its own citizens from being killed by the administration's poorly planned and executed attempt to privatize huge hunks of the federal health safety net.

Afghanistan: Good managers know that in order to pocket the gains of a project, you have to finish it. This administration started out fine in Afghanistan. They had the Taliban and al Queda on the run and Osama bin Laden trapped in a box canyon. Then they were distracted by a nearby shiney object -- Iraq. We are now $75 billion out of pocket in Afghanistan and its sitting president still rules only within the confines of the nation's capital. Tribal warlords, the growing remnants of the Taliban and al Qaeda call the shots in the rest of the county.

Iraq: This ill-begotten war was supposed to only cost us $65 billion. It has now cost us over $700 billion and continues to suck $10 billion a month out of our children's futures. Meanwhile the three warring tribes Bush "liberated" are using our money and soldiers' lives to partition the country. The Shiites and Kurds are carving out the prime cuts while treating the once-dominant Sunnis the same way the Israelis treat the Palestinians, forcing them onto Iraq's version of Death Valley. Meanwhile Iran is increasingly calling the shots in the Shiite region as mullahs loyal to Iran take charge. (More)

Iran: The administration not only jinxed its Afghanistan operations by attacking Iraq, but also provided Iran both the rationale for and time to move toward nuclear weapons. The Bush administration's neocons' threats to attack Syria next only provided more support for religious conservatives within Iran who argued U.S. intentions in the Middle East were clear, and that only the deterrent that comes with nuclear weapons could protect them.

North Korea: Ditto. Also add to all the above the example North Korea set for Iran. Clearly once a country possesses nukes, the U.S. drops the veiled threats and wants to talk.

Social Programs: It's easier to get affordable -- even free -- American-style medical care, paid for with American dollars, if you are injured in Iraq, Afghanistan or are victims of a Pakistani earthquake, than if you live and pay taxes in the good old U.S.A. Nearly 50 million Americans can't afford medical insurance. Nevertheless the administration has proposed a budget that will cut $40 billion from domestic social programs, including health care for the working poor. The administration is quick to say that those services will be replaced by its "faith-based" programs. Not so fast...
"Despite the Bush administration's rhetorical support for religious charities, the amount of direct federal grants to faith-based organizations declined from 2002 to 2004, according to a major new study released yesterday....The study released yesterday "is confirmation of the suspicion I've had all along, that what the faith-based initiative is really all about is de-funding social programs and dumping responsibility for the poor on the charitable sector," said Kay Guinane, director of the nonprofit advocacy program at OMB Watch.." (More)
The Military: Overused and over-deployed.

Former Defense Secretary William Perry and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright warned in a 15-page report that the Army and Marine Corps cannot sustain the current operational tempo without "doing real damage to their forces." ... Speaking at a news conference to release the study, Albright said she is "very troubled" the military will not be able to meet demands abroad. Perry warned that the strain, "if not relieved, can have highly corrosive and long-term effects on the military. (More)
With military budgets gutted by the spiraling costs of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, the administration has requested funding for fewer National Guard troops in fiscal 2007 -- 17,000 fewer. Which boggles the sane mind since, if it weren't for reserve/National Guard, the administration would not have had enough troops to rotate forces in and out of Iraq and Afghanistan. Nearly 40 percent of the troops sent to those two countries were from the reserve and National Guard.

The Environment: Here's a little pop quiz: What happens if all the coral in the world's oceans dies? Answer: Coral is the first rung on the food-chain ladder; so when it goes, everything else in the ocean dies. And if the oceans die, we die.

The coral in the world's oceans are dying (called "bleaching") at an alarming and accelerating rate. Global warming is the culprit. Nevertheless, this administration continues as the world's leading global warming denier. Why? Because they seem to feel it's more cost effective to be dead than to force reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. How stupid is that? And time is running out.

Trade: We are approaching a $1 trillion annual trade deficit, most of it with Asia, $220 billion with just China -- just last year.

Energy: Record high energy prices. Record energy company profits. Dick Cheney's energy task force meetings remain secret. Need I say more?

Consumers: Americans finally did it last year -- they achieved a negative savings rate. (Folks in China save 10 percent, for contrast.) If the government can spend more than it makes and just say "charge it" when it runs out, so can we. The average American now owes $9,000 to credit card companies. Imagine that.

Human Rights: America now runs secret prisons and a secret judicial system that would give Kafka fits. And the U.S. has joined the list of nations that tortures prisioners of war. (Shut up George! We have pictures!)

I could go on for another 1,000 words listing the stunning incompetence of the Bush administration and its GOP sycophants in Congress. But what's the use? No seems to give a fig. The sun continues to shine in this fool's paradise. House starts were up in January. The stock market is finally back over 11,000.

But don't bother George W. Bush with any of this. While seldom right, he is never in doubt. Doubt is Bush's enemy. Worry? How can he worry when he has no doubts?

Oh i forgot, the Republicans make no mistakes and we liberal Dems are not true Americans. GIVE ME A BREAK!!!

Wow, talk about spitting back up everything the liberal media feeds you. You must have been taking it in for quite some time.

Yes, "the sky is falling"!! Get rid of the republican president.
I will NEVER forget when Clinton defeated Bush 41. Going into the campaign the media was actually referring to Bush as King George because of his liberating of Kuwait and the Berlin wall coming down and all the other good things that happened during his presidency.
Then the Clinton's ran for office. Yes, the tag team. Anyway, next thing you know we're hearing "it's the economy". Sure, it's the economy. As with every other election season we get fed the crap about things being worse than they were four years ago.
The part I will never forget was right after Clinton took office there was a graph in the paper the next day showing the economy was actually on the upswing beginning September before the election. Huh!!?? Now why wasn't that reported before November??? It's a fact. No questioning if that actually happened. Look it up.
No media bias there.

I can honestly say, under ANY administration, things always got better for me every year. Even if it was a little better. Why??? You might ask, oh tree hugging friend of mine. Well, I'll tell you why. Because I don't look to the goverment to make my life better. I wish they would let me keep my paycheck and I will "redistribute" my income the way I see fit. If money's tight, you don't live above your means. If you need more money, get a second job.

I'm lower middle class. I'm the people Obama is trying to get fired up to hate anyone making more money than me. I'm smart enough to know business owners are necessary for the country to thrive. Imagine if the Dems had their way during the industrial revolution. Sure, there were a lot of millionaires made during that time. But let's just say we made them give over half their income back to the government. Why the hell would they keep their businesses open? They have enough money to retire. They would have just shut down and people would have lost their jobs but it's always the republicans fault when that happens.

We are not a free country as long as there are flaming liberals who still believe government knows better than its citizens regarding what to do with their money. I'm sorry if there are stupid people out there who feel they need to be protected from their stupidity. I'm not one of them so why should I suffer?

And no, I'm sorry, liberal Dems are NOT true Americans.
Please put yourself back in 1776 and see how everyone would have reacted to you wanting to take the word GOD out of any documents, take away the right to own a gun, insist that any settler who comes here decides she doesn't want her child, she may kill it once the head comes out.(thank you mister partial birth abortion supporting Obama) Then you would protest the thought of going to war against England, and you would have said, "oh, yes, I believe we should give more money to the Queen, after all, we don't know how to take care of ourselves. The Queen Mother will redistribute it as she sees fit".
Yeah, you're REAL American.
Oh, and one more thing Mr. Anonymous, I guess that's how a real American would have signed the Declaration of Independence too. I may not have my real name posted but at least you know it's always me and my email is there too.
John Hancock would have been proud of you, Mr. Anonymous, for being such a "real American"

Thanks for replying to Mr. anon. I just couldn't make it through more than his first 2 paragraphs of utter bullshit. Thusly, I wouldn't have been able to formulate a proper response.
