    Simple Solution

    A friend emailed this to me recently. Asked that I send it to 20 people. I don't like doing that so I picked EP to post it. Does this make sense or am I crazy? My apologies for simply copying/pasting someone's words. I usually avoid that. Congressional Reform Act of 2012...

    George Carlin Said Well When It Comes to Politicians.

    It has to be blamed on the morons who keep voting them in. He said it so much better than I ever could, and every election, I just remember the words:  >>Now, there's one thing you might have noticed I don't complain about: politicians. Everybody complains...

    I find it hard to trust anyone, espically if I do not know them personally so why should politicians be any different.

    Not a big fan of Obama!

    The middle class has suffered under his leadership. Last year GDP grew by over 300 billion dollars and 95% went to top one percent. That probably made republicans happy too. Since 1980 middle class has lost 40 % of their purchasing power. Few good years under Clinton. That's it...

    You can tell there's a general election around

    the corner when the vague and illusory rhetoric of politicians starts to become ever more vague and illusory. I used to believe some of what politicians said, which was fine when they actually said something. Now I notice - more than ever - what isn't said, and the tactics used...

    Seem to Only Look Out For Themselves

    With each passing day it becomes more clear that most of them make decisons based on who will get them re-elected.  No thought as to the affects of what they do to the whole is given.  Only thoughts to what it will gain for them and the group that will provide the most...
