Ok I get it, when you become a President who promotes CHANGE you come into office and make drastic changes. But rather then proving a point at the US citizens expense, I plead with you Mr. Obama slow down and look at the future reactions to our economy. Obviously his CHANGE phenomenon does not include looking into the FUTURE. Do not get me wrong I know the Bush Administration did not leave the White House on a high note; it actually left most of us with a bad taste in our mouth.
What chaps my hide is my whole life I have lived well within or below my means and now I will be paying up to 39% of my paycheck to help out others who lived above their means!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was taught my whole life to first tithe 10% and then save as much as I can. This means I choose to spend my money in certain ways. I shop at outlets and thrift stores, buy off-brand groceries, go to matinees, rent library books, only buy things on sale, maintain side jobs for extra cash, pack a lunch and buy used cars. If I would have know that I could have been a Materialistic Obsessed American (MOA) and bought 5k Gucci purses, Prada stilettos, Luxury Cars and a house I cannot afford just to have a "Savior" come in bail me out then maybe my life would be different. Oh wait, I would never be obsessed with stuff I can’t take with me. Sadly enough life is not like “The Girls Next Door” reality show that claims to be reality fooling my generation of Women that these 3 blondes have it all, well all I can say is OY VE!
As a Matter of Fact! (cited: Americans for Prosperity)
When you fight, the politicians get awfully nervous – even on a bill the President, Speaker Pelosi and Senator Reid assumed was an easy victory.
While Americans are losing jobs and seeing life savings evaporate this Obama/Pelosi/Reid $410 billion
Omnibus funds earmarks like:
$2.1 million for a Center for Grape Research in NY
$1.7 million for pig odor research in Iowa
$951,500 for Sustainable Las Vegas (I'm not making this up)
$2 million for "the promotion of astronomy" in Hawaii
$200,000 for a tattoo removal program
President Obama, after campaigning on a pledge to veto earmarks, now says $7.7 billion for 8,500 earmarks is ok with him. Sadly, the President cares more about letting his friends in Congress stuff pet projects into an already massive spending bill than keeping his promise to protect the American people from earmarks abuse and waste.
Are you angry that the Administration and some in Congress rolling up deficits that will destroy us? Everything you have worked for is in jeopardy. The worth of your 401K has been cut in half.
The inflation that will follow these huge deficits will devalue the dollars you have left. The stock market has plunged 50%.
Between 1 January and 11 October 2008, owners of stocks in U.S. corporations had suffered about $8 trillion in losses as their holdings declined in value from $20 trillion to $12 trillion.
Household debt grew to $14.5 trillion in midyear 2008, 134% of disposable personal income.
Housing prices continue falling. U.S. homeowners lost $3.3 trillion in home value in 2008
***Call your two Senators today and tell them to vote NO on the Obama/Pelosi/Reid $410 billion Omnibus.

- I AmERICA
- Update: I left the political life in DC behind, moved to Chicago and joined the corporate world at Groupon. And now life has changed forever as I am a new mama of Mateo!!!!!!! I need advice all the time so I am starting this blog to get it:) past info.... I was born in raised in Michigan; I have a passion to help the economy back home. I am in DC learning how to do that and advocating for my Michigan home and family. I was in a boat crash that should have been fatal but God protected me and now I am not wasting my second chance at life. I believe that Leadership is taking action. If I say I am going to do something I do it no matter what. My family is everything to me and I surround myself with friends who inspire me. I am a young conservative woman; I like fashion, beauty and appreciate gentlemen who hold the door for me. I also support women and think we need more as CEO's and Political Leaders. Yes, you can be conservative and for women so that is why I am going to blog. If you are the same way then get your voice out there too at this website!
