...before it gets better?
Personally, I think it's going to get worse... much, much, worse.
Ever since Obama has been in office I've had a nagging concern that we're headed for an incident(s?) of politically-motivated violence. There are a lot of guns in this country, and the political rhetoric, vitriol and verbal warfare has been escalated to quite a dizzying height. I truly hope nothing happens. The real question is: how can we dissipate this pent-up anger in a non-violent fashion?
Are you ready for some FOOTBALLLLLLLLL?!
Sorry. Just kidding.
AFAICT, most of the pent up anger is based on misinformation. Obama is a non-native Muslim socialist who initiated the disastrous bailout that will bankrupt the USA if SS or HCR don't get us first. Looks like a little edumaction might be a good place to start?
Not a single part of that sentence is factual. It is also a "known fact", which scares me.
To get an idea what the average American is like, there is an excellent rendering by Sven Nordin as Kjell Bjarne in the movie Elling.
Do we want to dissipate it? Or do we want to point it in the right direction?
It already has. Violence against minorities since Obama was elected has gone through the roof. I googled it and could not pick just one article. Then you have idiots like Rand Paul, Sharron Angle and Christine O'Donnell up for election. It should be no surprise when after the election it becomes open season on any minority.
This country has so many morons in it, it is unfathomable.
Years before the economic collapse, people like Ron Paul, Peter Schiff, - and yes Glenn Beck - were predicting the collapse due to over spending, over borrowing, over leveraging... at that time they were called cooks and lunatics, until their predictions came true.
Yes, things economically, socially, etc. are going to get worse before they get better. There's a bubble which still hasn't popped yet and as a country we have to decide whether to keep protecting and growing the bubble or get it popped and start to rebuild. There isn't an easy path out, it's either a lot of pain now or unbearable barely survivable pain at a later date.
I hope the time of massive government has come to an end. It's unsustainable. It's fairly ironic that the Brits are running away from big government just as our President and OLD congress were running towards it. Thankfully, America seems to have come to somewhat of an awakening and will be voting in some REAL small-government constitutional conservatives in a few days! Hopefully this REAL change lasts, and we don't go back to giving into the false promises and false utopia promised by the big government progressives.
I think it has gotten steadily worse since Hasselhoff and Bolton were eliminated. I thought there was hope until Audrina was eliminated last night. Bristol seems to, unfortunately, have some staying power.
So yes, I agree. It's going to get much, much, much worse, before it gets better.
Fun thread. It allows anyone to project their fears for the future onto "it".
In the immortal words of Yazz and the Plastic Population the only way is up baby
I personally think that it's going to get better before it gets worse, but then it gets better again. Then worse. But it's only for the better.
Now, if this becomes true, I expect some worshipping and a minor Nostradamus-like following. Even a half-baked cult would be nice...
haha, I was going to post something along the lines of "whats the point of this thread" but I see you found it. Good show, lol.
Also, I'm going to ride a unicorn to work next week.
You mean there's someone who still has a job?
no, i'm really going to ride the unicorn to the unemployment office
I don't know why though, since I'm a namby pamby "librool", who apparently thinks everyone else should give me their money.
You want my job?
I reckon it was too early for some American's to deal with a black president with a name like Barack Obama. A lot of the tension is racially rooted I have no doubt.
I not only have a job...
I work for the government...
and am a member of a union.
Making generalizations is fun, maybe that's why the teabaggers do it so often
Oddly enough, after nearly two years I've just managed to find a job. So on a personal level, I'm hoping that it's gotten as bad as it's going to get, and it's all up from here. Knock on wood.
Silly librool! Get back in the unemployment line! Don't you know that everyone else should pay your bills?
I was going to respond substantively, but instead, I had a question. Is there a single liberal who would NOT vote for a tax cut for the wealthiest 1% if there was statistical and historical proof that such a tax cut would be the best way to stimulate the economy, create jobs, and benefit the average American?
(edit) Who are the REAL small-government constitutional conservatives and what are they going to do?
I know, I'm such a librool leech that after 2 months of unemployment I scrounged up a part time job that paid the same as unemployment and worked that instead. It's practically socialism, I tell you.
