No New Deal, Mr. President!


I listened to the President speak to the nation a few nights ago and the bottom line was that he urged Americans to call their elected officials and urge them to “make a deal.”

Now, I don’t know how you feel, but I called my officials and told them that they’d better not “deal” if they ever want to see another of my votes!

It is the Deals that have put us where we are today.

It is the Deals that have created a debt that my grandchildren will never be able to pay.

It is the Deals that have cost many their retirement funds.

It is the Deals that could very well take this country to the bottom before it is over.

No, Mr. President, I will not be asking for any of your Deals. The New Deal of my parents’ generation began paving this road to no where, and the Deal you offer today will push us right on over the cliff.  However, believe it or not, it is not just your actual “deals” alone that are the problem…nor are they the only danger.

No, worse than the Deals themselves are the mind games you and your Congress play. You are perfectly aware that the American market runs on emotion, and you are equally aware that your words of Deal or No Deal have the power to eradicate the retirement funds of thousands…and yet you are willing to sacrifice those American people…and all in the name of your party. Shame on all of you!

    A deal is like an alliance in international politics, the union of two thieves who have their hands so deeply inserted in each others pocket that they cannot separately plunder a third

    I agree with you Fredda, and the scary thing is there are still people who believe Obama.

    His Big DEal is stealing from future Americans. Big government is not the solution. We really are

    on the road to serfdom. I pray it is not too late to save our wonderful country.

    Show me where the money went!!!! DEALS??? I’ll show YOU a deal Mr. President…it’s a BIG DEAL that we lost thousands of acres of land and Texans lost their homes, but YOU didn’t think it was a big DEAL and denied emergency funds. I think it’s a big DEAL when YOU and the FIRST LADY take off to see SPAIN, AFRICA, and parts unknown for the experience it is for your girls. The big DEAL for me is, YOU should be paying for this, not ME!!! It’s a big DEAL when you lease out numerous hotels suites for the tons of friends and family you bring on trips, not to mention the added security. THAT is a big DEAL to me, sir.

    The U.S. needs to live on a written budget….til we can pay as we go. No more giving here and there when we don’t have the money…offer volunteer help or stored resources, but keep the CASH at home. That’s the DEAL I hope to see. Pay with cash, cut up the credit cards, GET on and STAY on a written budget. Mr. President, you should make Dave Ramsey Secretary of the Treasury and we’d be solvent by the time you are VOTED OUT OF OFFICE!!!

    Sorry Fredda, I couldn’t help myself. I am so tired of his hyperbole and rhetoric….Kid <

      Someone remind me exactly what’s wrong with a balanced budged amendment!

      Kerry, I’m with you on more than one level on this one. Yes, I want Congress to get itself under control; however, I also want the President (the guy who spends a lot of his time talking about helping others) to quit spending our money on friv. for family and friends when there is no money.

      And in case we forget, the House did pass Cap and Balance, which would cut the required TRILLIONS, and it’s lying on a desk, dead in the water.

  4. Dennis Marken says:

    Want to solve this problem??? Get out of the box and don’t vote dem/rep or for anyone over 8 years in office. Seem KISS to me.

  5. Dennis Marken says:

    Make that seems.

    In this money saving DEAL they have passed now, all the media has said on where the cuts are to be made is domestic programs. Now I know that Medicare and Medicaid are the biggest expense that we have. But foriegn aid is also a big draw from our pockets. Not one domestic program should lose anything until they stop all money going to other countries. That includes closing all overseas military bases, getting out of all the wars we are in and paying for. No more restoring Iraq, no more helping Egypt, or any other country, until we fix our own country. Have you ever thought of WHY the Muslim terrorist hate the U.S.? Because the U.S. has been the Bully of the World for over 50 years now. We stick our noses into everything that goes on in the World and try to tell everyone else how they should run their own country. We need to withdraw from the UN and quit funding them and move the UN headquarters to Europe, end all free trade aggrements we have and make American companies pay an import tax on all goods made in another country. I can remember when the Corp tax was close to 75%. Now I will say that was somewhat high a tax for any company to pay, but the Corp tax should be around 50%. I just burns me when Exxon/Mobil releases their quarterly profit report of their profit in the $Billions. Who is paying those $Billions? We are.. In Iraq last month gas was .26 a gallon.

    Just came across this and it explains why Social Security should not be cut and I guess it could include Medicare too as it has been paid for by taxes through the years.

  8. Sam Vineyard says:

    News tonight said even after passing the bill, the United States credit rating was going to be downgraded. I thought that was the reason they had the fight and passed the bill, to keep that from happening.

    • Fredda Jones Fredda Jones says:

      Ric says it is the best thing that could have happened to us because MAYBE it will be a wake up call to Congress. As to why it happened, when you cut spending by raising your spending…well, you know.

  9. Connie Reed says:

    Not agreeing the US has been the biggest bully in the world. If that were our true aim, why not just lob missles at every undeveloped country we disagree with? Why are we not at war with Iran? North Korea? Because we think diplomacy comes first, as it should.

    What country does the world turn it’s eyes to every time there’s a tsunami in Indonesia, an earthquake in Haiti, or famine in Africa? The U.S. gave 307.65 billion in charity around the world in 2008. If our decline continues, however, the world can look to another ‘bully’ in their time of need.

  10. Sam Vineyard says:

    Well for what ever reason they seem to think fits, they go into a country and take over, on the ones we are at war with now. But a lot of other countries we use the CIA to go in and pay off people and bully them to do what we want them to. I saw a report the other day, that the CIA had been funding and helping Al-Quada in some of the Middle Eastern countries in order to change the way they were doing. I thought we were at war with Al-Quada? We use any means possible to make another country do what we want and come into the line.

    As far as declining more, we are going to decline in our country like the Great Depression in the 30’s the way they are going at this time, but they will still be funding other countries and sending $Billions overseas. I was talking about the U.S. can no longer afford to be a World Power, we can no longer afford to give Billions for just any reason they think is just. I saw one person predicting 50% unemployment and two year of double digit inflation in the next 2 years. How will that suit for declining?

    • Fredda Jones Fredda Jones says:

      I hope you are wrong on the 50%, but you are right that for fairly intelligent people, we sure do a lot of stupid things. Of course, you and I both know it all comes down to who we are in bed with; if we knew, I’m sure it would scare us to death.
