    Habakkuk 2:5 – 2:10

    The arrogant and greedy man is never satisfied, because he has enlarged his appetite like Sheol; and like death, he has never enough, but gathers to him all peoples, and draws near to him all nations. Shall not all these take up a parable against him, and a taunting proverb against him, and say, Woe to him who gathers and increases that which is not his! How long will he load himself with earthly goods? Behold, they shall rise up suddenly, those who shall bite you, and awake those who shall cause you trouble, and you shall be for spoil to them. Because you have plundered many nations, so the remnant of the people shall plunder you; because of men's blood and the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that dwell therein. Woe to him who defrauds and heaps up evil for himself, who sets his nest on high that he may be delivered from evil! You have devised shame to your house, you have plundered many peoples and caused our soul to sin.

    We should pray that the curse of the many trillion dollar fraud of the CDS will be miraculously lifted from the world who bought them, and the Americans and Brits who sold them, as if they were AAA bonds. Even Sec. Paulson says … the US has embarrassed itself in front of the whole world, economically. Enron 1,000,000 bigger.
    That quote comes from the Shabbat service I attended tonight, led by a revival Jewish Messianic preacher. He couldn't have picked a better prophecy portion.
    Shalom

    Well Wolf, you hit the nail on the head, how can we have a strong economy if we're outsourcing all of our jobs?

        That was great, in my opinion there is no reason that we cannot return to making everything in America. My God, do you know that we cannot even make military missiles without parts from China? Most of our American made cars are full of foreign parts. I think this is the first thing we should do to improve the economy, by putting America back to work. There is no reason that everyone who is willing to work should not be able to earn a livable income. There are only a very small percentage that wants a handout, most people just want a job with livable wages.

    I'm not arguing with much of what you are saying, but I do have a problem with the Republican Party taking all the blame. You have to admit that the Democratic Party shares in that blame for the economy. It was a Democrat who pushed for and passed NAFTA which caused many American jobs to leave the Country.

    Sorry Pet, but the recession is has purely a Republican brand on it. I think it's a smoke screen to keep people from looking at why we're in a recession. Yes, President Clinton adopted the Republican plan and pushed for NAFTA to his shame, but it was still a Republican plan. That is not why we are in a recession now; 8 years cutting the tax rates of the rich while the wages of everyone else went down was just the start of the Republican recession. Americans had less money while the cost of everything went up. So what did they do? They borrowed and borrowed and now most Americans owe and don't have anyway to pay off their debt. When the Nation needed leadership and regulations the Republicans just kept saying to let the Market take care of it, but how well has that worked? It is just so crazy to say that Corporations don't need rules! I was looking at the debate between Nixon and JFK; even then Nixon wanted to have businesses act voluntarily without having the government force regulations on them.
    This has been the Republican religion for years; regulate private citizens but not the corporations. Republicans have controlled the congress since 94. Yes, I know that Democrats won technical control of the leadership in 06, but that was by a slim number and Republican filibuster everything so to control the congress. That has changed now and that means that only as the new congress take charge and Obama becomes President will Democrats be able to change the economy.
    I used the picture of the wishbone because Republicans have been trying to switch attention off their failure by saying that there were Democrats too. They are like little kids caught doing something wrong and pointing at some other kids saying they did it too. I'm sorry, but this recession and everyone that I've read about were owned by Republicans. Wishing that it was otherwise won't change a thing.

       The logic behind the blame game is to give cover for the failed Republican economic plan. The right wanted to hold off any economic news so that they could claim that the recession started on Obama's watch. Limbaugh tried to blame Barack while excusing Bush, because that would have allowed them to do it all over again. The latest news is that the recession actually started in December 07 a full year ago. This is from CNNMoney.com

    The National Bureau of Economic Research said Monday that the U.S. has been in a recession since December 2007, making official what most Americans have already believed about the state of the economy .
    The NBER is a private group of leading economists charged with dating the start and end of economic downturns. …The NBER said that the deterioration in the labor market throughout 2008 was one key reason why it decided to state that the recession began last year.
    Employers have trimmed payrolls by 1.2 million jobs in the first 10 months of this year. On Friday, economists are predicting the government will report a loss of another 325,000 jobs for November.

       With that said, most people are not interested in who or how the recession came to be; all they want is to see it end. The best way to do that is through a twinkle up rather than a twinkle down, for the more people who have extra money, the more that will be spent and thus stimulate the economy.

    I just don't see how some people can be so heartless about that! There's just something ungodly and un-American about the “I have mine, so the devil with everyone else” attitude! Don't they realize that what comes around will go around till it hits them? I guess not! These are scary times that we live in. I'm so glad that Obama will be in the White House instead of McCain. That gives me hope, maybe we will pull out of this recession.
