"Politics is the Art of Looking for Trouble, Finding it Everywhere, Diagnosing it Incorrectly, and Applying the Wrong Remedies"
Ahhhhhhhhhhhh...the sweet smell of Freedom
Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life
Smells like French Toast....dipped in sheet
Gas is going up....Taxes are going up.........the mail stamp is up a penny.............and last but not least do not forget the new obama health insurance proposal...
You all who voted for obama got what you deserved....Only thing is you dragged us normal citizens with ya! down the tubes we will go.

What's the point of posting that stupid video?
Is it the after-taste of the throw-up the right experiences after Obama got reelected and now inaugurated again?
That 4th amendment is so stupid right????
I hope nobody got to rowdy and decided to practice thier 1st amendment rights around him......
Obama is just the next Corporate Statist to take the job. Who hates our liberties just as much. Get in line.
That stupidity goes along with complaining about Obama's kids possibly having a security detail.
I come to the point to think that you actually want another Reagan or Kennedy event.
You don't even have to support this President to realize the idiocy behind your thinking that anybody going to the inaugural event of the President has to be searched. What you are doing is utter hatred.
Gas goes up because that's what your energy companies do. Not because of a certain President or economic times.
In this chart you can see that prices go up and down, up and down. It has yet to reach the height of Bush's term though.
Then we have the issue of taxes. No income taxes for 99% of Americans go up. Or have gone up or are higher than before Obama took office. The only "increase" is the payroll tax which was a 2-year temporary reduction enacted in 2009 by Congress. It was always supposed to go back to its original value regardless who would be President. You failed again!
And your last failure is our beloved/hated USPS. The USPS is an independent agency of the US government and has received no funding since the 80s. And since it is technically still a government agency (but run like a private business) the Bush administration had Congress enact a new PAEA in 2006 in which the USPS has to send all its profits into a 75 year prepaid health retirement fund. 75 years prepaid and not allowed to make a profit. The cost: 500 Billion over 8 years. The amount of the prepaid fund is almost equal to the debt load now. And please understand the prepaid fund has nothing to do with paying current benefits to retirees. The USPS never had a payment problem.
They have every right to increase their stamp rate. Nobody screamed bloody murder when a Republican House and a Republican Senate voted and ratified a bill which made it impossible for the USPS ever to make a profit again. It was signed in December 06, one month before the house changed into democratic hands. And then it was signed by a Republican President.
1 cent? If you send 100 letters every month your extra cost are: $1!!!!!!!!
Have you tried to send a letter through alternative ways (FedEx, UPS etc). The 46 cents sound much better right?
This thread is a failure.
