Is needing help. Someone to bounce ideas off and think things over with. Usually this person is Jenn, or Katelyn. One is not online and the other absolutely hates my guts and I have no idea how to reverse that. So....help? Before I completely lose my mind. I can bribe you with music? Or fic! Whichever you prefer. Even both!

It has been waaaaaaaay too long since I have posted on here. And even longer since I've written anything. But, I am back! :) With the help of my beloved Jenn! :) I've missed all of you (especially you Jenn!!!) I know I've been horrible with updating and keeping in touch, but life has been overly hectic. I am contemplating writing/posting something new. It is not a fanfic sadly, though I do plan on getting back to that sometime soon. It's just a general fiction. I might post a little snippet later, just to see if anyone is actually interested in reading it! If you are, let me know and I'll share. Otherwise I'll just be posting random stuff here lol.

The Outsourcing President
Author: Dustin Ensinger
Published On: 02/09/09
Source: www.EconomyInCrisis.Org

Despite frequent and oftentimes heated rhetoric opposing the practice of outsourcing during his presidential campaign, President Barack Obama seems to have had a complete change of heart on the issue. He now seems to be embracing the job-killing practice, based on some of his most recent appointments.


During the campaign, Obama often said things like, “We're not looking to create just any kind of jobs here; we're looking to create good jobs that pay well and can't be shipped overseas.” His actions, however, indicate that he is not very committed to creating jobs that cannot be outsourced.

Earlier this week, President Obama named Diana Farrell to his National Economic Council, where she will also serve as a deputy economic advisor to the president. Farrell is known as one of the most vocal cheerleaders of outsourcing in America. She is the former director of the McKinsey Global Institute, McKinsey & Co.'s economics research arm, where she was the lead author of a report titled "Offshoring: Is it a Win-Win Game?" that wrongly concluded outsourcing provides “substantial benefits” to the U.S. economy.

In addition, Obama has named former Senator Judd Gregg to become the nation's next Commerce Secretary. Gregg has a long history of supporting policies that displace American workers by favoring cheap labor from low-wage nations. “The choice of Sen. Gregg makes sense only if the president wants a secretary of Outsourcing,” said Kevin Kearns, President of the U.S. Business and Industry Council, which represents domestic manufacturers.

Amazingly, Gregg somehow believes that H-1B visas actually create job opportunities for Americans. Gregg believes in the job-killing program so much that as a senator he once tried to increase the limit on the number of H-1B visas issued each year from 65,000 to 115,000.

“The selection of Sen. Gregg completely contradicts what domestic manufacturers understand to be the president’s stated views on U.S. trade policy,” Kearns said. “Sen. Gregg has voted nonstop for bad trade deals that have shipped overseas thousands of factories and large numbers of high-wage jobs, helping to create today’s economic crisis.

These appointments clearly signal that President Obama has little regard for American workers and is already under the influence of corporate and foreign lobbyists who are much more concerned with providing their clients with the cheapest labor possible than doing what is best for America.

Obama “is either ignorant or naive about the real job market for American IT workers,” said Ron Hira, an Assistant Professor of Public Policy at Rochester Institute of Technology. “He is doing his level best, with these appointments, to undermine American workers and their livelihoods.

-*-*-*-

In conclusion...the man is an outright moron. Here is your so-called "hope" and "change" hard at work doing NOTHING of use. He's been accused of so many shady and poor connections, and while in office as senator did NOTHING. Voted on nothing. And yet, somehow he must have the plan to save us all!

Er, no.

Our economy may be out of whack but it is not nearly as bad as the media continues to push. We are just a bunch of ingrates who got so used to the gimmegimmegimme factor that now that we actually have to learn to live within our means, we're falling very, very short.

Either way, seriously? Who in their right minds could vote for such a lying, idiotic, poor excuse for a man. He won because of his color, that's what's sick. And may I remind you, he's only HALF black. And seriously? WHO GIVES A FUCK. What's important is his character, what he can do for this country-not what ethnicity he may partly be. Jesus, this country is getting dumber and dumber everyday. How fucking scary is that?

Why are all the women on the view such bitches? Seriously. They just completely gang up on one of their own? That's pathetic and disgusting. What makes them think they're so much more important than anyone else or more intelligent anyway? They're CELEBRITIES. That doesn't make them intelligent. It makes them famous. I think they should stick to what they know. Hollywood. End of story.

And the red-head bitch? Ugh. Can't STAND her. She's loud, obnoxious, rude, and she can't even have a discussion without attacking people. She's so crass. She thinks she's funny and I find her downright disgusting. At least Whoopi Goldberg can have a discussion without turning into an obnoxious, know-it-all. I find her to be possibly one of the most intelligent celebrities I've ever heard speak. She's kind, funny, and she tries have an open, intelligent discussion without attacking or blaming. That is something I find all together refreshing. Whoopi and the blonde girl are the only ones on this show who I find to have any intelligence or respect. Star Jones and that red-head bitch, though? Ugh. Please. I'd rather take my eye out.

WTF?  
Okay, seriously? People are getting ridiculous.

Believe me, to spend a half a million dollars on ANYTHING is ridiculous in my personal opinion-especially if it's not a necessity. BUT. It is tradition. No taxpayers pay for it, and neither does the White House. It's tradition. EVERY First Lady has done it. Including the democrat's precious *cough* PSYCHOTIC *cough* Hilary Clintion, who FYI, spent 250,000 on HER pick for china. Which, comparing the prices of everything from then to now, would really be very close to the same thing. So HOW in God's name is this inappropriate? It's PUTTING MONEY INTO THE ECONOMY. The china companies are going out of business, the economy needs more money-and by the way, the economic situation is entirely OUR fault. The economy is PEOPLE driven. WE control these things, not the president. He's just a convenient fall guy for a spoiled, greedy country who doesn't seem to realize that they have MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE IN THIS WORLD. No matter how bad off we are here, there is always someone else worse off in another country. Is that not completely obvious?

So, instead of complaining and looking for someone to blame? How about we actually try and change the way things are ourselves and try to help each other out instead of acting like spoiled little brats who the government owes. Cuz I got news for ya'll. They don't owe us jack shit. They were created as a safety net, and they do a hell of a lot for us. Have you heard of disability or welfare or food stamps or free medical care? Don't get me wrong, we are SO flawed. But instead of whining and bitching, how about we DO something and practice being grateful. Your parents weren't money trees and neither is the government. NOTHING in life is free. Get that through your head and we might be a little better off.

I am sooooooo sick of stupid teachers. Do they not realize that school is supposed to be politically impartial? It is not about THEIR political beliefs. At all. People are so God damned set on no one being allowed to talk about religion because it might be offensive to someone. Well, fine. WHATEVER. But it OFFENDS ME when teachers begin to preach their political views. This is NOT what we spend valuable money on to learn. If I wanted their opinion on something, I would ask, and I damn well expect not to be charged!
