The End of Fun and Happiness

I have a sick feeling that Obama is going to be elected president and the conversion to living miserable taxed out lives will begin. We will be paying more to the people who sit a home all day and spit out welfare babies.

There seems to be a market for a hero that kills useless welfare check people.
The people who do not work when they clearly can.
The people who have babies just to get a larger check from the government and to avoid taxes.

So what are you guys going to do for your last bit of fun before he takes it all away?

Just really frustrated with our potential future. Free healthcare? Have you seen Europe? Have you been to Europe? People could not be more miserable! Taxed for everything they do.

(I hate paying excessive taxes, a little is fine.)

What gets me is just how many instances the tax money is wasted.

How can a criminal who shoots a judge in the court during a trial still be fighting for his freedom?

America is getting crappier.

Oh, and buy a big engined car if you have been planned to get one as they will all be extinct in the near future or at least come with a $10,000 V8, V10, V12 tax that Obama will make...

AARRGGGHHH!!!!!!!!!!!

California needs to sink into the ocean! $1,000 fine for not sorting your recyclables correctly?!

I believe in equal opportunity, not just equal everything no matter how little you contribute to society.

(These are only my opinions and rants.)

Here is what you do. Be like my friend. More welfare recipients means easier to make money selling junk.

1) Find a small town with a depressed economy with a lot of low income folk

2) Open a Chinese restaurant and sell lots of fried food to said people.

3) Live frugally for 18 years while making sure all your kids get straight A's in school, then send them to Harvard or Yale and further on to medical school.

4) Sell the restaurant to Arby's or Burger King or Walgreen's so they can continue selling fried food to low income people.

5) Go back to China and start a clothing factory.

In other words, always stay ahead of the curve . . . .

Do you think things are better under McCain? Besides, you are electing a President not an Emperor.

I remember dire warnings just before the 1992 election. "If Clinton wins, watch your wallet!"

Well, I watched my wallet grow and grow, only to see the economy tank in 2000, once it was clear exactly who would be replacing Bill.

fun and happiness ?!?!?

- economy in the tank
- we invaded a country
- we went from a surplus to being trillions in debt to China & Japan
- 4000+ soldiers are dead
- We're paying 300% more for diesel than we were 5 years ago. If your income has gone up 300% in that time frame, I salute you...
- constitution has been dismantled
- I'm paying more in taxes

I'm having a $hit load of fun. I can't wait til it gets BAD....

Don't let the facts get in the way.

Regarding taxes, unless you're one of the top 2% of earners you'll get a bigger tax break under Obama's plan. Also Obama has worked hard to reduce enrollment in welfare. Get your facts straight.
