    Yup, it's me...PatriotsReigh...and I've got something good to say about our president.

    Today before a national television audience, he proposed some solid changes in the financial industry. I liked what I heard. He proposed that no FDIC insured bank ought to be able to make trades for their own accounts. He also proposed prohibiting banks from owning or investing in hedge funds.

    He also proposed limitting banks size...i.e. enforce anti-trust laws.

    All of the above are good for our economy and good for Americans. Kudo's to Obama and I hope to hear more proposals like these.

    Hahahahah...Props where Props are due....right?


    This is funny, because I'm a supporter of Obama...and I wanna see him walk the walk on this one. So far he's been pretty huggy and kissy with wall street, banks and the FED. So for us to praise him on his words at this point is premature.


    This dude said Gitmo would be closed by now...


    I like what he said, I just want to see some action on this one before I start cheering for the man.

    I agree....I also feel he and congress have no choice but to impose these changes. Unless they want history to repeat itself.

    Hey, look! We agree on something :)

    Meanwhile Lloyd "God's work" Blankfein and Goldman Sachs made another 4.6 billion in profits last quarter.

    One area where I'm pretty liberal is corporate America and gov't policy Jack. I'd like to see all corp. lobbyists outlawed permanently. I'd like to see more anti-trust laws enforced as well.

    Raise the rewards for corp. whistle-blowers...I'd consider them hero's!

    But, I don't want a European style business environment either. So if we can walk that tight-rope, I'm all for it.

    He has to announce something today to divert attention from the squeaker admitting she doesn't have the votes to pass the Senate's Health Care bill :D

    He's trying to turn into a populist which is interesting as he continually sticks his nose up at the average person.

    You will be seeing a "New Obama" thanks to Scott Brown, the Messiah is running scared, if he means what he says good for him but I don't trust him, he knows that November is right aorund the corner and he knows the American people have had enough of his cheap lying bullsh!t.

    Yeah, that damn Obama, always sticking his nose up at the average person. Some might call that, I don't know, uppity.

    Fine, that's what he is then.

    It's funny seeing a snob try to be a populist but I hope the proposals help.

    How is Obama, in any respect, a snob? Have you met the man?

    I love how you can't even being yourself to give him credit under any circumstances. Hackish, much?

    It's fairly clear just watching him. His snotty attitude towards Brown's truck was just the latest. There may be many good things about obama but being one of the people is absolutely not one of them.

    Oh, right. I'm not going to make this explicitly about race, but your comments speak for themselves.

    Now a comment about a truck is racist Jack? WTF? I think it's fine & dandy if someone considers Obama's comment about Brown's truck, "Snotty". What the hell does it have to do with race?

    My personal opinion is that ALL americans should totally stop trying to look into the meaning of comments. Especially those who ask themselves....

    "Was that racist?"

    We're WAY beyone that Jack.

    NOW...I think we all know who likes Obama and who doesn't. My own position is that he seems like a good man. But his policies have driven me nuts and I don't like THEM. But whether you like him or you dont, it's ok...we're all entitled to feel what we feel.

    But let's try to leave RACE out of it and pretend he's just another human being.

    What on God's green earth are you talking about?

    I've been reading this guy's tripe since the days of KFFL (where, if I recall correctly, he was banned). You may be beyond that, but many people aren't.

    Almost all politician seem uppity to me. I think purple Barney Frank is the most uppity of them all...does that make me a homophobe?

    Mmm... I suggest, if you're not aware of the connotations, that you avoid using that term :)
