    Uh boney , its called out-sourceing the U.S. Industry has been shipped over-seas , unemployment is HIGH !! , and american jobs are being handed out like condoms at a GAY-BAR to illegegals this is not the result of the citezens , the blame belongs to our knuckleheaded puppet politcians in Washington , but since you r a female you would'nt understand the difficulty or pressure this puts on men trying to take care of themselves and/or a family in this struggleing economey. Does that sum it up for sweetie / go now and wonder no more.

      Jeff is right, we do have a lot to be thankful for!!! For example, the fact that 2100 is not a part of immediate family. What an unhappy, finger-pointing, ignorant little person. Happy New Year to All. May next year be filled with compassion and tolerance, ya I'm talking to you 2100! See conservatives have a heart too.

    ...not to mention Boney was referring to the earthquake in Haiti as the reason this is happening. If an earthquake of that magnitude hit your hometown, you yourself might not be here picking on her. Whoever is in charge of earthquake target's, you missed.

    2100 – You are a sad example of why everyone in this country shouldn't be allowed to vote.
    Boney + everyone else – Haiti's 200+ year history of corrupt government leadership, environmental degradation, violence, along with the free hand-out practice by the West has built an enormous hole to climb out of. We all need to sacrifice to offer help to our neighbors in ways that gives economic opportunity (micro-finance) through public-private partnerships.

    @2100...me? Liberal? If you've folloowed my post's at all, you would know that tag doesn't fit me. Have you ever read Orwell's "Animal Farm" where the pigs are not unlike democrat and republican leaders? Well, if that book were updated and had a sequel, it might be called "Animal Farm 2: the Pig's unite". Why? Because your leaders from both party's only pretend to be like one of us, alway's fighting and bickering. But in reality, the leaders are on the same page, using the same age-old (D) vs. (R) scheme to keep people divided and under control that crooked politicians have been using for centuries. Amazing how people still fall for it after all those years.
