    This email comes in three parts:

    Part 1: Remember the election in 2006?

    Thought you might like to read the following:
    A little over one year ago:

    1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high;
    2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon;
    3) The unemployment rate was 4.5%.

    Since voting in a Democratic Congress in 2006 we have seen:

    1) Consumer confidence plummet;
    2) The cost of regular gasoline soar to over $3.50 a gallon;
    3) Unemployment is up to 5% (a 10% increase);
    4) American households have seen $2.3 trillion in equity value evaporate
    (stock and mutual fund losses);
    5) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $1.2 trillion dollars;
    6) 1% of American homes are in foreclosure.

    America voted for change in 2006, and we got it!

    Remember it's Congress that makes law not the President.
    He has to work with what's handed to him.

    Quote of the Day........"My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world.
    I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it." -- Barack Obama - CHANGE? See Below

    Part 2:
    Taxes...Whether Democrat or a Republican you will find these statistics enlightening and amazing. www.taxfoundation.org/publications/show/151.html

    Taxes under Clinton 1999 Taxes under Bush 2008
    Single making 30K - tax $8,400 Single making 30K - tax $4,500

    Single making 50K - tax $14,000 Single making 50K - tax $12,500

    Single making 75K - tax $23,250 Single making 75K - tax $18,750

    Married making 60K - tax $16,800 Married making 60K- tax $9,000

    Married making 75K - tax $21,000 Married making 75K - tax $18,750

    Married making 125K - tax $38,750 Married making 125K - tax $31,250

    Both democratic candidates will return to the higher tax rates.

    It is amazing how many people that fall into the categories above think Bush is screwing them and Bill Clinton was the greatest President ever. If Obama or Hillary are elected, they both say they will repeal the Bush tax cuts and a good portion of the people that fall into the categories above can't wait for it to happen. This is like the movie The Sting with Paul Newman; you scam somebody out of some money and they don't even know what happened.


    PART 3: You think the war in Iraq is costing us too much?

    Florida teacher speaks out!!

    Letter by a Florida teacher................ A teacher speaks


    This is a subject close to my heart. Do you know that we have
    adult students at the school where I teach who are not US citizens
    and who get the PELL grant, which is a federal grant (no pay back
    required) plus other federal grants to go to school?


    One student from the Dominican Republic told me that she
    didn't want me to find a job for her after she finished my program,
    because she was getting housing from our housing department
    and she was getting PELL grant which paid for her total tuition and
    books, plus money left over. She was looking into WAIT which gives
    students a CREDIT CARD for gas to come to school, and into CARIBE (google it)
    which is a special program (check it out - I did) for immigrants and it
    pays for child care and all sorts of needs while they go to school
    or training. The one student I just mentioned told me she was not going
    to be a US Citizen because she plans to return to the Dominican
    Republic someday and that she 'loves HER country.'

    I asked her if she felt guilty taking what the US is giving her
    and then not even bothering to become a citizen and she told
    me that it doesn't bother her, because that is what the money is
    there for!


    I asked the CARIBE administration about their program and if
    you ARE a US Citizen, you don't qualify for their program. And all
    the while, I am working a full day, my son-in-law works more than 60
    hours a week, and everyone in my family works and pays for our
    education.

    Something is wrong here. I am sorry but after hearing they want
    to sing the National Anthem in Spanish - enough is enough.


    Nowhere did they sing it in Italian, Polish, Irish (Celtic), German
    or any other language because of immigration. It was written by
    Francis Scott Key and should be sung word for word the way it
    was written. The news broadcasts even gave the translation -- not
    even close.Sorry if this offends anyone but this is
    MY COUNTRY IF IT IS YOUR COUNTRY SPEAK UP -- please pass
    this along.


    I am not against immigration -- just come through like everyone else.
    Get a sponsor; have a place to lay your head; have a job; pay
    your taxes, live by the rules AND LEARN THE LANGUAGE as all
    other immigrants have in the past -- and GOD BLESS AMERICA!
    Whats left of it!!!!


    PART OF THE PROBLEM?


    Think about this: If you don't want to forward this for fear of
    offending someone -- YOU'RE PART OF THE PROBLEM!

    Democrats and Republicans have both had the time and power to fix things and here we sit in worse shape.

    The $$$ and two party power system have destroyed us, or will before long.

    JW is pretty close to the truth. I think it comes down to our own gluttenous nature. Now days there are just too many pigs at the trough and were all getting nervous because we see 'our fair share' shrinking. Don't think its true? Just compare your current lifestyle to the typical American 40 years ago. Need more proof? How do you feel about that hoard of Mexicans pouring over the boarder? I gotta admit that I'm one of the piggies.

    turds draw flies.

    The governing class has had a blank check from us for so long it's taken for granted.

    Lobbyists slip millions under the table in one form or another to get their pet pigs fed.

    Archer Daniels Midland used millions in lobby money to get the Ethanol boodoggle shoved up our keister, and they are raking in profits big time. this is notwithstanding the fact that eth is a loser, in addition to pressuring our food prices by diverting production to their sow.

    And this is only one instance.

    We need Bill Proxmire back. (gogle "Golden Fleece".)
