    It's unacceptable in every sense of the word yet those we vote into office are the problem when they should be the solution.

    If you think these numbers are staggering, you should see a printout of the amount of your and my money that gets collected on April 15th then sent to countries we can't pronounce to people that hate us.

    This crap MUST STOP!

    I think if Americans had to physically pay the IRS quarterly taxes like the self employed, things would change. people that get a check for their net income don't necessarily feel the pinch like those of us that fire off a check. When it's simply deducted, it's easier to bear. Having to pay hits home.

    Peanuts.

    We can bail out the jackasses that caused the mortgage and economic crisis in one week to the tune of 700 billion. or more.

    Government is out of control. I know I have the broken record thing goin. It just pisses me off to no end how irresponsible our government is that we elect to convey our views as citizens with their actions and they do exactly whatever "they" want to do. Illegal immigration must be stopped both for economic and national security reasons. I find it amazing there is no one on the table willing to take the bull by the horns and demand US Immigration law be followed.

    Iraq war estimated cost = 100-120 billion a year just for comparison to above numbers. Our government is going to spend 7 years of Iraq war equivilent to bail out a bunch of greedy people half of which should be in jail while homeowners continue to lose their homes or struggle to live decent lives. Not to exonerate homeowners from blame but really, which is the worst here? Wall streeters who encouraged the continuance of risky loans by buying them and making millions or the homeowners who were for a large part lured by mortgage brokers in the frenzy of skyrocketing home values that would seemingly never end (flippers excluded)? My vote goes on Wall Street.

    I have an idea. Why not just use this money to pay down the homeowner's mortgages directly and let the greedy Wall Street buttheads get in the bread line instead of the homeowners?

    And back to the immigration issue. Simple solution. Take the jobs away by fining employers who hire them (big fines). They will pack up and leave and take their anchor babies with them in droves. No exportation cost other than the cost of enforcement. Export the criminals immediately and put military assets on the border to assure they don't return. I bet a hell of a fence could be built for a few billion dollars. Complete with a 20000 volt wire through it.

    Government for the people. Yeah right.

    Should make the decision on who to vote for far simpler. The Man who wants to end sending money overseas to countries that hate us, wants to eliminate pork barrel earmarks, and the man who wants to cut taxes and unneccessary endowment programs. And that Man is John McCain.

    A vote from O the other guy will do nothing but accelerate our economic woes.

    No gamble here, it's a sure thing......
