    Default Party Politics aside......

    Regardless of who got elected, this stimulus stuff is just flat Bull$hit!!

    Bush would have run something through too.

    I really think this is US VS THEM and the "them" being all the politicians.....

    From the random bank bailouts to AIG etc and now this pork laden bill they are trying to stuff down our throats.....

    I really think we need to band together and send DC a BIG message that we are unhappy with EVERYONE.

    We need to send some serious fear into the hearts of the politicians that they are about to lose their meal ticket.

    Both parties are broken, out of touch and inadequate. I salute those Republicans that voted against this scam. However, too little too late and if GW wasn't such a bust, we wouldn't be headed to hell in the hand basket the Dems have picked out for everyone that works to make a living.

    Maybe from this failing of our government, a new independant party will arise! Lets face it, the Republican Platform, though slightly better than the Democrat's, isn't what America needs either. I didn't think I would live to see the destruction of the USA but, it is happening. With the passage of this insane bailout bill, we have become a socialistic country. Our health care, the best in the world will soon be third world quality.

    Hold on to you cash, I'm not leaving any of mine in a bank. I took it all out today, liquadated my 401k and all savings.
    Look for the Dow to hit the 2,000 range as foreign investors liquadate thier investments.
    Stock up on survival items cause it IS going to get a lot worse!

    Late last summer I took a trip to Costa Rica. There are an estimated 225,000 Americans living there and I wanted to see for myself what all the buzz is about. Great climate, health care(mostly American doctors), a real republic and the natives love Americans and their money. I was attracted to one villa on the Pacific coast, about 1,800 sq ft under roof. Only 600 sq ft had walls as the weather is similar to San Diego's, no need for air conditioning, so much of the villa's space is open. They were asking $125,000. US dollars at the time. The place sold for the asking price of $350,000. last month, sold to Americans moving there. Real Estate has gone sky high in Costa Rica since our last election. I just booked at trip today for the week after next and will shop for what is available in my price range! I may not move right away but, when things get really bad here, at least I'll have somewhere else to go.

    Tim, I'm just a working chump/stiff. I've saved $ all my life and worked for all of it through good times and bad. I'll be damed if Obomo is going to give a way what I've worked my entire life for! And, he will try and give it away.

    I'm glad to hear you are fan of Costa Rica's health care system. It does have a good reputation.

    Did you know they have nationalized health care down there? Canada does, too. In fact, pretty much any first world country that you want to flee to when 'things get bad here' has a single payer health care system.

    Are you sure you want to live in one of those 'socialist' countries?

    The Stimulus should be renamed The Big Hand Shake.

    I may be completely wrong but it seems that much of the advancement in medicine comes from the US. With no incentive to excell won't that hurt medicine world wide.

    I admit I am no medical expert.

    I can't imagine he would want to live there. It's another 'socialistic' country with nationalized health care.
