Pass it along! Better get filled up again if you can as it's going to go up more still.

Sorry to write so much. I'm off from work today, and technically all this week until next Tuesday as things are so slow where I work. I have no hours for a check next week, no vacation pay, but at least they gave me some sick time. It's the same with others there, almost all of them have had their hours cut which I and even they expected. We're not dumb, we can see what's happening at our company and in the world.

economy. The wealthy will one day regret what they've done to us and even to themselves, because in making us poorer here in this country, and keeping people poor in the world and making themselves richer, they keep themselves from becoming even wealthier still and keep things from growing and eventually, it will all get worse. Throw in what's going to happen with natural disasters of every variety and it's really going to be bad.

Then, all these people have the audacity to make the statistics look great for their reports, but if you research enough and read what they've done, then you'd be like me and 10k. They use all the people working part-time, whether it's 25 hours a week or 5 hours a month, as full-time workers to make everything look and sound better. The Dow is orchestrated to make it look great and that the economy is doing great, when in fact it's not. If the economy was doing so great, then the numbers for those on food stamps alone wouldn't have gone up all these years since Reagan's or Carter's term in office, they would have declined. Here in Florida and up by you in Michigan, both of our states have more people on food stamps than ever before and more than most of the rest of the country, percentage-wise and actual numbers as well. It's only a little better than it was four or five years ago, but mainly with more working part-time. Eventually, that's going to help cause another crash in this...

When they were killing off almost a million jobs before Clinton came into office, I thought, what the hell are they doing. People need those jobs! It was the same under Clinton and Gingrich when they killed off another two to three million jobs. Then Bush did another whopping batch of about six to nine million with Congress's help. Then Obama has put on the icing on the cake with the one million or so jobs he helped to kill off and he and the government and analysts can all make it look and sound good like he and they are helping us, but those like me who truly have to live in this crap of life, we can see what they've done. That's why one of my buddies 10k, a fine Democrat mind you, he's had it as bad and worse than me and others. These last four helped to create the lowest wage paying part-time jobs out there in the service and fast food industry, while shipping out the better jobs.

No, I can't on that one as I don't like them either! Life has been worse under them all since Reagan has been gone and I could see back in 1990 that it would be worse still, the same in 1991, 1992, 1993, and onward. These last four Presidents and the Congress right with them helped to kill off more jobs than all the previous ones before them combined. They helped the rich get wealthier, nothing more. Reagan, Carter and Ford spoke up, the Democrats and Republicans in Congress with them, they helped to keep jobs here. These most recent people, Obama included because he was in Congress helping to vote for funding these things, voting in favor of giving himself and others immunity, voting in favor of thing that would benefit the few and the wealthy, they, almost all of them, including Ron Paul, have screwed us over to one degree or another more than those last three did. Ron Paul might not have been as bad, bad just a couple of things has made me realize he helped to screw us over as well.

You're a little like me, reading all the magazines [I read various newspapers as well as get my news from a multitude of sources, foreign and domestic, not just CNN and Fox or even ABC and CBS for that matter--they're nothing more than the propaganda arm of the government and wealthy and corporate realm], you have a good education, I've got more than just the AS, just haven't been able to finish up, plus that Thorium is and will be a good fuel. Who really needs oil and gasoline in large amounts? Even without the Thorium, I could cut back on what is being used today in the world by a third fairly easily. They don't want that to happen, those at the top, which is why it hasn't been done yet. It'll be done when they can all have their hands in on it.

...the chose candidates from the party(ies) they plug to us. They all talk a good job, they sell you and millions on what they're saying or doing, all the while helping to screw most of us in life. Just because they sound good doesn't mean a thing. The best ones don't want to be in there and aren't in their any more of their own choice. If you're not a team player for those in power, in the corporate realm, you won't like being there. If they were good people working for us, our lives would be different and better, all of us. Even this stuff with the cops being out of hand, that wouldn't be going on either in this country. Under trickle down, most everyone I know, black white, rich and poor, Atheist, Christian, Muslim, Jew, Wiccan, etc., we all did better. Under this version of trickle down they're doing [taxes are lower than under Reagan or the first Bush or even Clinton for the most part], they've set it up in such a way that it's the wealthy, those in power, who benefit the most.
