Subject: A New Direction?


Received this from a friend, I can't vouch for the statistics/


The Democrats now promise "A New Direction For America."

The stock market is at a new all-time high and America's 401K's are back. A
new direction from there means, what?

Unemployment is at 25 year lows. A new direction from there means, what?

Taxes are at 20 year lows. A new direction from there means, what?

Federal tax revenues are at all-time highs. A new direction from there
means, what?

The Federal deficit is down almost 50%, just as predicted over last year. A
new direction from there means. what?

Home valuations are up 200% over the past 3.5 years. A new direction from
there means, what?

Inflation is in check, hovering at 20 year lows. A new direction from there
means, what?

Not a single terrorist attack on US soil since 9/11/01. A new direction from
there means, what?

Osama bin Laden is living under a rock in a dark cave, having not surfaced
in years, if he's alive at all, while 95% of Al Queda's top dogs are either
dead or in custody, cooperating with US Intel. A new direction from there
means, what?

Several major terrorist attacks already thwarted by US and British Intel,
including the recent planned attack involving 10 Jumbo Jets being exploded
in mid-air over major US cities in order to celebrate the anniversary of the
9/11/01 attacks. A new direction from there means, what?

Just as President Bush foretold us on a number of occasions, Iraq was to be
made "ground zero" for the e war on terrorism -- and just as President Bush
said they would, terrorist cells from all over the region are arriving from
the shadows of their hiding places and flooding into Iraq in order to get
their faces blown off by US Marines rather than boarding planes and heading
to the United States to wage war on us here. A new direction from there
means, what?

Now let me see, do I have this right? I can expect: The economy to go South
Illegals to go North Taxes to go Up Employment to go Down Terrorism to come
In Tax breaks to go Out Social Security to go Away Health Care to go the
same way gas prices have gone

But what the heck! I can gain comfort by knowing that Nancy P, Hillary C,
John K, Edward K, Howard D, Harry R and Obama have worked hard to create a
comprehensive National Security P Plan, Health Care Plan, Immigration Reform
Plan, Gay Rights Plan, Same Sex Marriage Plan, Abortion On Demand Plan,
Tolerance of Everyone and Everything Plan, How to Return all Troops to the
U. S. in The Next Six Months Plan, A Get Tough Plan, adapted from the French
Plan by the same name and a How Everyone Can Become as Wealthy as We Are
Plan.

I forgot the No More Katrina Storm Plan.

Now I know why I feel good after the elections. I am going to be able to
sleep so much better at nights knowing these dedicated politicians are
thinking of me and my welfare.

Please pass this good news along to all of your friends so they can feel
better also.

Happy New Year!

I think this is largely a bunch of bull, but I hate almost all politicians and especially hate political talk on TT. I'm not impressed with either group that we have.

Most of these that have some truth to them are actually credit to Greenspan and now Bernanke

I don't think my house has done this?

Home valuations are up 200% over the past 3.5 years.

Well, maybe the Democrats can find a way to stop from loosing another 3000 soldiers in Iraq ... look at how a nation mourns a dead president who lived into his 90's, and compare that to how a nation hasn't appropriately mourned the loss of 3000+ soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan ... IF we need to be there, surely we can find a way to prevent the loss of life at its current rate ... our soldiers are heroes, they deserve better from the politicians (all of them, republican and democrat)

As an employer I would never ask my employees to do a job that I was not willing to do myself, perhaps some of the politicians can do a job swap for a week or two, put their money where their mouth is. (starting from the top down Mr. Presidet / Mr. Vice President / etc ...)


I think we can give John McCain a pass, so he can have my vote for President

The "new direction" means higher taxes, inflation, and unemployment, more spending on welfare to give money to people that have no desire to work, less spending on defense and the military and a basic undoing of the economy. I am like Leroy in a previous post when he said "I hate most politicians", I get sick of all of the political propaganda.:twocents:

Ah.....politics! if this thread keeps going some who are friends will become enemies. p.s. just to throw my thoughts in..... i don't hate our president, it is heartbreaking our young men are dying, the ecomomy is good, my house has tripled in value, my employees came to me looking for a job,( they didn't volunteer) and my stocks have done well. Most of us get up, go to work, and dream bout the next boarding/skiing run! pretty damn good life we live. sometimes we have to fight to keep it this way.....and before all the questions come... yes...i had a dog in this fight.

Ok then, They say "low stretch " will stretch 1% under normal load, and "no stretch" will stretch 1/2% under normal load. Which would be better for someone 6' and 250#...?

Federal tax revenues are at all-time highs.
Well, when you're throwing away hundreds of billions of dollars in the desert, I guess you need the money.

Several major terrorist attacks already thwarted by US and British Intel,
including the recent planned attack involving 10 Jumbo Jets being exploded
in mid-air over major US cities in order to celebrate the anniversary of the
9/11/01 attacks.
What!?!? I never heard about this. :eek: Can somebody point me to a reliable source to confirm this?

I forgot the No More Katrina Storm Plan.
Looks like the Republicans beat them to it. No storms last year. Thank you George Bush! :)

Just remember, "reliable" depends a lot on what your political leanings are.

I heard this on Bud Hedinger's talk show the other week in Orlando....I'm not sure if he is the author, but some good points nevertheless. Bud's show is from 3-6 pm EST on AM radio... www.540wfla.com if you want to check it out. He's one of the few I can actually listen to for any lenght of time.
