In mourning

Many Americans feel great distress and the loss of hope with the re-election of Barack Obama.

I would suggest that any of you who have flag poles to fly your flags at half staff to show we are in mourning over the death of our country on Nov. 6, 2012.

Who are the real losers

So Obama won. OK! What next? Does it affect me? Probably not, I'm 79 years old, I worked all my life, served my country for six years, starting during the Korean War. 

What about those who voted for Obama and have all those years ahead of them?  Trillions of dollars of national debt, over 40,000 on welfare, unemployment over 8 percent, not counting those who gave up hunting for a job.

I got a great idea, let's tax those people who have worked hard and invested their money in businesses. They're making profits. That's a dirty word to those who have never spent a moment of their lives helping the American dream. 

Sure, let's get rid of profits. Where were all the clear minded voters who knew better? Is the business community going to invest in a country that makes it a sin to make a profit? 

I think not and unless you're a complete fool, you don't think so either. Why don't we just take the money from all those people who make profits and distribute it to those who don't have anything. Sound like Socialism/Communism? That's the agenda for the Nancy Pelosi's, Harry Reid's and Obama's. 

This election boiled down to race, class warfare and all those senior citizens that thought they were saving the future for their grandchildren. Guess what Grandma, they are going to pay for your vote.
