And, in the fullness of time, I've come to realize, nether dose anyone else. All I have to offer are questions. So ... Here's the short list

What are we up to here???

I mean as a Nation, as a People, as a whole. I don't think humanity has ever considered anything together, as "Humanity". However, our fore fathers did relate to the world on the Level of "Nation", and so, created this great Republic; and in so doing a gave purpose to a people, to settle a content, to give birth to a new Nation, a grand experiment in self-government. They did this in a time when British Power was at its zenith. OK, so what? ... Well ... They succeeded folks!!!

"If there is to be trouble, Let it be in my time, that my children may have peace."

Thomas Paine

Well? … Get it? ... WE are the "my children ", (see above). Us!, all of us!, you reading this now, yes you! us Americans. We have been granted the privilege, the honor and just plane blind luck to complete the great circle of life our fore fathers vision and courage and yes, FAITH, started. The source of our problems as Americans, as I see it, Are that we have no freq'n clue what to do with this great shimmering jewel that sparkles in this dark world we call liberty. Perhaps, If we could just, as a "Nation" admit this to ourselves, and the world, I'm thinking our credibility around the world would improve, probably markedly. The point you say ... the point is, What the heck are we up to??? Now that that grand task is complete! A man on the moon? Foot prints in the lunar dust? A frail egg shell outpost on the edge of space? A mission to Mars? The entire content of Africa in degradation and plague! What are we working this hard for? Simple survival? I can't speak for any of you gentile folk here today, but this is just simply NOT sufficient payout for living my life as a Wage/Tax slave! For prostrating myself and my fathers heritage to yet another gaggle of pompous and/or corrupt special interest hoes, "the finest politicians money can bye". If I am to sacrifice the promise my life was when my father left it in my care, then

I DEMAND THE GOAL BE WORTHY OF THE COST!

Worthy of the losses that came before me!!! I demand a task worthy of the toil of the uncounted multitudes that our blessings have been built on, of the OCEAN of blood that was the price our fore fathers paid in full for these privileges. Privileges we now seem to be so willing to casually surrender. Most casually it seems to me, when the privilege we are surrendering are someone else's. I suggest to you here and now, it is time to renounce Stonehenge, it is time to lift our heads out of the primordial mud and look past Tranquility. It is time to believe, it is time to chose, that we are not only standing on the shoulders of those that came before us. T house who gave us the vantage from witch to recognize that we stand at the threshold of Mankind's Great Golden Age.
Before I moved to Chicago, a friend, a new grandmother, showed me a picture of her new born grand child, oozing with pride, and she announced to me: "This is the one, This generation is going to be the one to colonize the moon. Take the next step up evolutions ladder. Take man kinds first step to the stars." Now That, my friends, is a task worthy of all this sacrifice, worthy of a free and proud people, worthy of America for generations to come. The question is …

are we worthy of that task!

Sorry 'bout those dreams.......
The liberal/democrat/socialists have decided that the wealth and riches of
what was once called, These United States, are now to be re-distrubited
to those less fortunate. Red China and Russia now OWN your grandchildrens
future. You can thank Soros; his puppets, Reid, Pelosi, Soetoro, Christ, Frank,
and slick Willie.
It's only a matter of time.

I have an answer, but you'd not like it.

I no longer ponder our democracy, though I embrace it. The American people are diverse and resilient and they overcome themselves in their political choices.

Might I remind you the Republican party was in charge when everything went to hell in 08? The sooner the conservatives stop blaming the liberals for everything and start looking in the mirror and try to find out what part they have played in the crap that is flying and start trying to think of a solution that will work for EVERYONE and not just the rich they might be much better off. just my not so humble opinion

As for dreams. The sooner we fix the schools in this country the faster those dreams will be realized. All great strides in history are powered by knowledge. Without that there are no dreams and no strides forward. It concerns me that our country is falling behind everyone else when it comes to the education of our children. And anyone who thinks this does not apply to them had better remember that one of these kids are going to be president one day or in the house or the senate. One of these kids witih the right education might just save your life as a doctor one day. We should be funding and pushing education because that is the future of our country. That is how we are going to get to Mars and beyond. That is how we are going to cure diseases that are a death sentence now. That is how this country is going to remain great and not slide into a 3rd world nation falling apart at the seams. I just hope these kids can forgive us for the mess they are going to have to fix that our generation has made.

Actually, until 1992/3 the gap between public debt and gross debt for the U.S. was fairly minor, raising little since the FDR years in the 40's where it was next to zero.

Then, in the early 90's China was allowed to purchase both large amounts of currency and treasury bonds, as well as U.S. Debt. At the same time the debt gap was allowed to grow.

What this means is that, yes, debt was sold to the Chinese (and RJ is right because it was the Bush/Cheney administration, not the Clinton or Obama administrations that happened in) but the debt was not only personal unregulated bank debt but also government debt. However it's important to note that the republican administration was who did pus for financial deregulation (and they are still pushing for it) which was what allowed the private sector sales in the first place.

And to be honest, I'd love to hear the answer 40DWM proposes, as long as it's not greater deregulation, trickle-down, or supply side economics that got us into this in the first place. (I have noticed that doing more-of-the-same rarely fixes things.)

But I worry the real "cost" GryGoast refers to is more strongly related to the nationalist politics that keeps sucking us into needless conflicts that are bleeding away our greatest resources.

As a Libertarian, I believe that both the Republicans and Democrats have
not done a good job for this country. Things might seem like they went to
hell in '08, but that's when the damage of Fannie/Freddie really hit the fan.
If you check your Google, you might learn it was an idea from ACORN leaders,
supported by Barney Frank, and championed by Bill Clinton. Many people
that have bought houses in the last 20 years, overbought. They could not
make payments on the house, hubbys Diesel Dullay and the wiffeys Hummer
after Wall Street manipulation got a gallon of gas over $4.00

You can blame the Republican Party all you want, as many of them are
''rino's", Republican in Name Only.

Around here, they fix education by throwing more money toward all the new
schools that have been built in the last 2-5 years, yet have piss poor books.

My fix, would be to CUT most Federal Bureau funds, shut down most of Federal Departments, the regulations that choke small business, freebies to foreign
countries, and cut slakers off the Govt. Tits. More $$ is blown to feed, house,
health care, and educate Illegals each year, than is spent in Iraq and Afganistan.
Entitlements, by and large, would GO. Free Heath Care and lifetime retirement
pay for those that have been in Congress, the Senate, or 1600 Pennsylvania, I'd
pull the plug on that too. When it's commited, shoot high officials for treason.
When someone like Rangel, Eddie Johnson, or Waters steals from the public,
so the same to them as was done to Tom DeLay.

But, that's not Politically Correct.

Why is it that the far right on here feel free to post political diatribes on what is supposed to be an adult dating site?

I have no doubt you'll respond that those on the left do it as well, but I almost never see political posts from the left except in response to stuff like this.

There are all kinds of sites for that kind of discussion. Why not take your political rant to those sites?

First of all I agree this site is not supposed to be for political blogs.

But trying to blame the Clinton era for our problems might have more credibility if Bush and friends had not been running the country for 8 years when the economy crashed. Blaming the party in power before you does have an expiration date and I believe that date should be at about 6 years unless you inherited a real mess like two wars we could not afford and an ecenomy in the toilet.

The problem with the economy was not that they were too regulated, it was that you cannot trust big business to police itself and do what is right. There has to be a line somewhere they cannot cross and to let them set those lines is like buying a fox to guard your hen house. More than a few chickens are going to come up missing.

As for small business. The right has proved over and over again that they do not really care about the mom and pop type of business. I know why too. These are not the kind of people who can afford to make the big donations to their campaign. If you regulate campaign donations you might get a few more politicians on both sides willing to do what is right for the country instead of their pocket and their political career.

I have a theory that if the right would get their news from a credible news source instead of one that twists the news for ratings and profit by keeping their viewers scared of what the big bad left is up to they might see what is really going on.

Ok I am off my soapbox now.
