This is doable, I'll get the preferred method payment over to ya and soon after you'll receive your authentic title to this property complete with pre built nuclear shelter bunker able to withstand the worst nuclear attack and mushroom cloud. You'll feel much safer believe me, you know in case Haiti flies one of those nuclear drones over (heard they were friends with al qaeda).

Good doing business with you and is their some 'hidden' ethnic jab with the Obabalaba reference? Just wondering.

But does it have a "Hurricane Proof", Helipad roof on it?
Insulation in the attic that can double as "flotation devices" when needed?
Wouldn't want another Katrina fiasco. cool

I agree, using some 'scary' words to get an agenda passed. Reminiscent of 'Mushroom cloud over US city' and 'Iraq able to launch a Nuclear attack on US in forty minutes'. But, you know, the fear of our economy getting even worse seems a little more real to me then the mushroom cloud. That never really scared me.

Sounds to me like the bill is turning into a mushroom cloud. $900 billion? Good grief. I'm going to need one of those shelters you were talking about just to hold provisions in case the economy goes belly up again before this gets paid off.

SoCo you really need to stop living in the past. Bush is gone - past history - let it go. We're talking about President Obama now.

Bush's past actions do not negate anything Obama does or doesn't do.

The news media that once kow towed to him are now turning on him. I am seeing reports that Obama is not keeping his promises more often.

I just don't understand the logic behind the whole mess. Over the course of my career, I've occasionally had to deal with the wreckage someone's made of their life by running their finances into the ground, and trying to help them out of it.

So here I am with a client who has overspent himself, can't make the mortgage or car loan, and is having trouble putting food on the table for the kids.

From what I'm seeing in the news, I'm apparently supposed to tell him to get another Visa card and go out and buy a new stereo, surround sound system, a special refrigerator for chilling wine, and an air conditioned dog house. It's OK, because it's like a reverse mortgage -- his kids can pay it off when he's gone.

So we're gonna fix our debt problem by borrowing more money...do I have that right?

Yeah, good job it's been a month and according to your reports it's already been a failure. Can't wait to see what the half year mark will bring regarding your critique. Hell, by then (according to the dire reports from the extremists on the right) we'll be living in a dust bowl and Bin Laden will be the new Vice President.

Another words you give the man no margin for error at all as well as looking at him hyper critically under a microscope and expect unrealistic perfection from him in only one months time. Why don't you cut him one iota of the slack you cut bush screw up after screw for eight long years. There were tons of excuses given by the extremists after each screw up but no questioning the rationale with the actions leading up to said screw ups.

There -- I fixed it. Changed "Bush" to "Clinton" and "right" to "left" and that could've been cut and pasted from February 2001.

Welcome to the big leagues. Don't worry...we'll show your president the same level of respect you showed ours.

If, I recall most were doing well during the Clinton years can't say the same for 'your' president or the mess he left us.

expat, in your case I know this gives your life meaning (bitching about dems) so, carry on my friend.

There you go again, my slippery little friend...shifting what was said to avoid discussing the issue at hand.

I said nothing whatsoever about economic success under Clinton. The point is that all the libs saying we need to be nice and give Obama a chance are the same ones that were ripping into Bush on Day 1.

What goes around comes around. The difference is that Republicans endure criticism, and Democrats think it should be outlawed.
