    You Deleted my post about how jobs are there if you posess skill and determination. Not "the poor me's". this is a forward that i got that i'll sign my name to as well:

    "DIVORCE AGREEMENT

    THIS IS SO INCREDIBLY WELL PUT AND I CAN HARDLY BELIEVE IT'S BY A
    YOUNG PERSON!!! WHATEVER HE RUNS FOR, I'LL VOTE FOR HIM.

    OUTSTANDING!

    Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists,
    Marxists and Obama supporters, et al:

    We have stuck together since the late 1950's, but the whole of this
    latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I
    know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future
    generations, but sadly , this relationship has run its course. Our two
    ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what
    is right so let's just end it on friendly terms. We can smile and
    chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.

    Here is a model separation agreement:

    Our two groups can equitably divide up this country by landmass each
    taking a portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our
    two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be
    relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly
    divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate
    tastes.

    We don't like re distributive taxes so you can keep them. You are
    welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU. Since you hate guns and
    war, we'll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military. You
    can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O'Donnell (You are, however,
    responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all
    three of them).

    We'll keep the capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical
    companies, Wal-Mart and < span class="ececececececyshortcuts">Wall
    Street.. You can have your beloved homeboys, hippies and illegal
    aliens. We'll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO's and
    rednecks. We'll keep the Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood .

    You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we'll retain the right
    to invade and hammer places that threaten us. You can have the
    peaceniks and war protesters.

    When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we'll help
    provide them security.

    We'll keep our Judeo-Christian values.. You are welcome to Islam,
    Scientology, Humanism and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U.N..
    but we will no longer be paying the bill.

    We'll keep the SUV's, pickup trucks and oversized luxury cars. You can
    take every Volkswagen you can find.

    We'll keep The Battle Hymn of the Republic and the National Anthem.
    I'm sure you'll be happy to substitute Imagine, I'd Like to Teach the
    World to Sing, Kum Ba Ya or We Are the World.

    We'll practice trickle down economics and you can give trickle up
    poverty your best shot. Since it often so offends you, we'll keep our
    history, our name and our flag.

    Would you agree to this? If so, please pass it along to other like
    minded liberal and conservative patriots and if you do not agree, just
    hit delete. In the spirit of friendly parting, I'll bet you which one
    of us will need whose help in 15 years."


    Sincerely,

    John J. Wall
    Law Student and an American


    P.S. Also, please take Barbara Streisand & Jane Fonda with you.

    if any of you have red the "Ash's" Series by William Johnstone, I agree with the above post, as well as how Ben Raines described the Tri-States government in his fictional portrayal after a large nuclear and biological war. The first 8 or 10 books are scary, because the steps that led to this worldwide holocaust is exactly what is happening to the world as we speak... and if I'm not mistaken, those books are pretty dated [​IMG]

    It looks like I'll have to put new books on my summer reading list. They sound very interesting.

    Ummm. It think it was the greedy capitalists at AIG that awarded themselves millions of dollars in bonuses with money they received from the taxpayers as a bailout after they ran the company into the ground. You can take them.
