It disturbs me deeply to see how right wing Americans publicly throw abuse at president Obama. The man has done an admirable job in extremely difficult !$%*!$%*!$%*! and I applaud him for it. How can anybody claim that he does not address the economic problems of their country? If anybody hid from the truth, it is the last two Republican presidents who fought very costly wars and ran up unbelievabley high deficits to pay for them effectively ignoring the problems they were creating and leaving them for their successors to deal with.
This is an international forum. If I disagree with my government, I make that known in the poling booth. In this room I wouldn't dream of venting disparaging remarks about my government and I hope others will follow that example. This is Dilbert.com and not the local bar, pub or whatever.
Again, this stuff is analogous with the Federal government. They enact a policy to "fix" some problem in society, and as the problem is merely exacerbated BY the policy, they keep throwing more money, create more programs and bureaucratic policies as anyone with a brain can see that it's all making matters worse. There are several hundred pointy-haired-bosses in Washington, DC with their collective heads stuck in a place where I can't say here, and they don't CARE if the country literally goes down the tubes. All they care is that they can tell their "constituents" that they are TRYING to "help" them, and more often than not, they can count on their votes on election day.
