Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them do Unto You.

Growing up how many times have we heard this? Those of us who participated in Kindergarten, heard it recited daily.

The so-called "loosening of Credit" has taken this to a new level.Big Banks, Investment Firms,and Big Insurance,have shown us what it is they will do to us. They will gamble our money,take theirs off the top for salaries and bonuses,lose the rest betting against us,ask us for more,we give it to them,they take theirs off the top in salaries and bonuses,and refuse to invest and promote hiring while sitting on a nice little nest egg of our Money!!!

Why are we literally begging them for loans???Why are we fighting with them to release our Money, that they have technically deemed theirs?? Why is poor ED Shultz going on his show railing at the Institutions of lending,practically begging them to help the little guy???Does he realize that they are pushing to do away with community investment??

Now that we know what it is they will do "Unto us" My question is....What will we do 'Unto Them"??????

its time to get out the vote.I hear people in Detroit don't want to vote.

Well with 26.5% unemployment it seem like there is a reason to get out the vote. I wonder do Detroiter's know that Republicans and Tea Party Candidates feel as though Unemployment Benefits make people lazy and don't want to work. So if Mr. Rick Snyder is true to republican values why would he create jobs in Michigan??And do they remember when their unemployment benefits were put on hold twice in one year (Sen.Bunning,Sen.DeMint)?? That was due to Republicans. I know that most people need their unemployment benefits so they can meet some of life's expenses. The Republicans do not feel that way Sharon Angle Joe Miller). Now Mr. Rick Snyder may want to create jobs but at who's expense???

Hey autoworkers how would you like a right-to-work state. Mr. Snyder has made no comment on this matter. And what administration gave you the Bridge Loans that everyone called a bailout. Had to be a Loan because you are paying it back!!!! There are some who are mad because the auto industry took a hit. Think of everything else involved and it could have been worse. There could have been no automakers. Which means losses to parts and suppliers,steel,plastics,vending machines,newspaper stands,stores around the plants,bars and taverns around the plant. It even affects advertising jobs. Now Automakers are hiring but at lower starting wages,but you can thank republicans for that (Corker,Shelby).They have foreign automakers in their states.Which brings me to the question How would a Republican govern a state that has such an industry??

What about the rhetoric they use when talking about poor people. The comments about they want to drug test clients who receive food stamps??? Seem like with 26.5% unemployment in Detroit,and 13.5% in the state,somebody is getting food stamps.Go to Media matter check out some of the things that republican candidates say. Take a look at Thaddeus McCotter,Candice Miller. These are Republicans.Use Google.

Not voting???? Well if you don't vote and things get worse I promise I won't be the one that said told you so. I'll say it now. I told you so!!!!!!!

went to work and found out that I and fifty of my co-workers are laid-off.The first time I have been out of work for twenty years. I am fortunate I have my life,health and strength and marketability. Some of my co-workers were in tears. I hope they find their way. Looks like I will have plenty of time to get on the repugs nerve. Because with no job it will be my job to GIVE THEM HELL!!!!!!!!!

For quite a while I have been listening and watching right wing mouthpieces with their bold,brave Patriotic,I want my country back, "this President is a socialist", "this President is a marxist", Follow the rules of the constitution,if you see someone with an Obama bumper sticker on their car pull them over talking points and I was just wondering,why is it that they all need body guards when they appear in public.
I know they couldn't be scared that someone would bust them in their mouth. I just know people like Rush,Glen,Michele B.,Michelle M.,Sarah,Ann C.,(lil)Sean,Mr. Billo,Dick A.,Shooter,Dubya with all their bad talk couldn't possibly be afraid. They speak so eloquently their positions on all the things that are wrong with this country and this President,write books on what they see as their view of America and some don't want to even be part of America. I mean the way they talk especially old we eat therefore we hunt Sarah,what are they afraid of. I mean I wouldn't waste my time catching a case over one of these repugs. They say they are not saying anything to inflame the masses,so why the bodyguards? Aren't they the brave American pioneers of this generation? Does anybody have an answer ? I am just wondering.

If i go somewhere and see one more damn person outside, at the grocery store,the bank or doctor's office with them funky ass pajamas on i think i will scream.These are clothes made to sleep in or wear around the house. They are not for everyday public wear.Somebody call the fashion police.

My dear beloved Valentine (The Democratic Party),Why have we grown apart (low spirits),I miss the way we used to talk and hold hands (when our objectives bring determination).I remember the very first time I noticed you right after graduation. You were in the mall looking extremely beautiful (I had just received my voters registration card and was one of America's proudest citizens).I was shy about approaching you,so I would make it my business to show up in places that I thought you would be (I could not wait for an election to participate in the process that my ancestors have struggled for and earned as a right as a U.S. citizen).The Mall,the movies,the local book store,and was amazed at all the books you would purchase.I said to myself that you must be super intelligent or something.I didn't care I just wanted to be near you.Not stalking just admiring from afar(The Democratic Party had become something that was more in line with the vision of what I thought an inclusive Democracy could become.So I started voting in every election since.may have missed a few primaries because of illness or work,but would make sure I would not miss a general election for mayor,governor,or President).And one day while I wasn't watching,you saw me and came and sat beside me and asked if this seat was taken.I took one look in your eyes and fell like a ton of bricks.I could not believe my good fortune (I had voted and was feeling that I was in the party by myself.I watched an actor become President and was furious.I watched as him and his cronies run up the so called deficit,break up unions,let foreign corporations take over the American job market for monetary gain,cut social programs,and make a mockery of the American People in the name of religion).In no time at all we were married with children (We came together to elect President Clinton.Managed to pull ourselves out of the hole and create job growth,raise taxes on the rich,reduce the country's deficit,and create a surplus).After eight years and three kids you started to feel a little taken for granted, we both were working and kind of got in a rut.But instead of just letting things be you took the initiative and booked a first class vacation for just us.And the fire was turned back on.You had it going on in the way it was when we first got together.(I started working on friends and family and anybody who would listen to elect V.P. Gore as President)Then we had that Stupid fight and things just went down hill from there.I was never so sad and lonely. My beloved had lost all interest in me.What was I going to do? I had to get the spark back I had to make my beloved see that i was the one with the ability to bring happiness.(George "dubya" Bush had stole the election.And the Democratic Party came alive.It was like someone had turned the lights on.They banned together with their knowledge and their disgust for what was going on in the country).I started bringing flowers,candy,took you to dinner,spent more time with the kids that were still at home.You said you were happy but I was looking for that spark.That one thing that would unite us the way it was.I remodeled the house,bought you a new car,a toy poodle and still no spark(America watched as Bush/Cheney era drove us to the brink of ruins.It was hell on earth.There was 9/11,two wars,Hurricane Katrina,Housing market crash,Banks too big to fail,unemployment at an all time high,401k plans worth almost nothing,education failing at an alarming rate despite 'no child left behind",tent cities inside cities,Karl Rove,Condeleeza Rice,Donald Rumsfeld,and all the other hateful hot mess).But being the beloved that you are you took matters into your own hands.You sent the last child off to college and put your plan into action.It must have took you all day to get everything just right.When I got home the aroma of a delicious meal being prepared.A warm bath was waiting.Candles on the dinner table,soft music playing.When it was time for bed you broke out with the his and hers and BAM!!!!!!!Now its on and popping.We got our mojo back.I'm singing in the rain,I'm singing in the rain what a glorious feeling I'm happy again(This time we will not fail.We had had enough.We cried our last tear and made up in our mind that Bush/Cheney and any facsimiles will be out on their ass if we have anything to do with it.And with one sincere voice the people stood up an elected Senator Barack Obama as our 44th President, who is intelligent,educated,charismatic,and not too bad on the eyes).Now me and my beloved Valentine have our ups and downs but we are still in love and whenever there is any trouble we put our heads together to come up with a solution and break out with a few new tricks and the spark returns with just as much intensity(Even though as a Democratic party, we feel that are own personal issue is of most importance,but unless we help each other none of us will get what we need.The only way for our Democratic Agenda to succeed is for us to ban together and get ready to have the passion and the drive to not let our hard work be for nothing.There are some Blue Dogs and some trolls that need to vacate some congressional seats.And we need to make sure we stay with a clear and concise message so that the only thing a tea party person can do is divide the troll party,while we as the Democratic Party continue to clean up Capitol Hill one room at a time).You fired up beloved Valentine!!!! You ready to Go!!!!!!!
