    Hi Kibler. Well, I have to say you surely know how to open a can of worms! lol…no really, those are some great points you’re bringing up. Unfortunately, I think that most people in this country miss one big thing: all this bailout, Obama, pharms stuff – it’s all a sales gig. It has nothing to do with what good this will do to everyday Joe – These guys are masters of selling their ideas. That’s why most of the time they get to push the little guy any way they choose. As long as enough of the right people buy their ideas they will do what they want to do.

    Glad I stopped by, interesting blog =)

      Hi and thanks for your response. I do agree with you that we definitely get caught up in all the rhetoric and sales blitz being promoted and no one ever really wants to get down to the issues. The issues that really mean something to the average person in this country. And it is a shame. A country that has the potentional to offer and do so much for the average Joe, seems stagnated and paralyzed to really make things happen to make a difference. Maybe some day we will wak up and see what is really going on in this country. I just hope it is not too late.
