I got this in an email, thought it was pretty interesting!

IN JUST ONE YEAR!

This email comes in three parts:
Part 1
In just one year. Remember the election in 2006?
Thought you might like to read the following:
A little over one year ago:

1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high;
2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon;
3) The unemployment rate was 4.5%.

Since voting in a Democratic Congress in 2006 we have
seen:

1) Consumer confidence plummet;
2) The cost of regular gasoline soar to over $3.50 a
gallon;
3) Unemployment is up to 5% (a 10% increase);
4) American households have seen $2.3 trillion in equity
value evaporate (stock and mutual fund losses);
5) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $1.2
trillion dollars;
6) 1% of American homes are in foreclosure.

America voted for change in 2006, and we got it!

Remember it's Congress that makes law not the President.
He has to work with what's handed to him.

Quote of the Day........'My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the
history of the world. I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it.'
-- Barack Obama

Part 2:
Taxes...Whether Democrat or a Republican you will find these statistics
enlightening and amazing.
www.taxfoundation.org/publications/show/151.html
Taxes under Clinton 1999 Taxes under Bush 2008
Single making 30K - tax $8,400 Single making 30K - tax $4,500
Single making 50K - tax $14,000 Single making 50K - tax $12,500
Single making 75K - tax $23,250 Single making 75K - tax $18,750
Married making 60K - tax $16,800 Married making 60K- tax $9,000
Married making 75K - tax $21,000 Married making 75K - tax $18,750
Married making 125K - tax $38,750 Married making 125K - tax $31,250

Both democratic candidates will return to the higher tax rates
It is amazing how many people that fall into the categories above think
Bush is screwing them and Bill Clinton was the greatest President ever.
If Obama or Hillary are elected, they both say they will repeal the Bush tax
cuts and a good portion of the people that fall into the categories above
can't wait for it to happen. This is like the movie The Sting with Paul
Newman; you scam somebody out of some money and they don't even know
what happened.

PART 3:
You think the war in Iraq is costing us too much?
Read this:
Boy, am I confused. I have been hammered with the
propaganda that it is the Iraq war and the war on terror
that is bankrupting us. I now find that to be RIDICULOUS.

Our biggest problem, a two party system if you ask me.
We have a great welfare system for those who need it.
The problems are the loopholes for people that are too lazy to work and want to abuse the system.

I have no problem helping a man in hard times when he needs it. I have a HUGE problem giving money to someone with a head on their shoulders, two arms and two legs that work fine and they are just too lazy to work and better society from their efforts.

I'm sick of hearing...I can sit at home and make more money than I can going to work. Guess what, you sitting at home costs me money...you and your 8 kids from 6 different baby mamas.

Find a better job, get two of them...like our parents had to do and their parents did before them to make ends meet.
I never heard my old man sit on the couch saying....by the time I figure gas, time on the road, etc., I can make more sitting at home... NEVER...

We've got a great system, it just gets abused...

I was reading a column in our paper about the price of gas. An economist was laughed at a few years ago when he said we'd be paying 100 a barrel soon. This is when it was 40 a barrel. People are paying more close attention to him now.
He says because of the booming economy elsewhere, it's gonna keep going up to about 200 a barrel.
Don't know about you guys...but Memorial weekend has come and gone. We're still at 3.95 to 4.09 a gallon around here...it sucks!!!
