Happy with change so far?



Courtesy of "Doc Holiday"

George Bush has been in office for 7 1/2 years. The first six the economy was fine.

A little over one year ago:

1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high;

2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon;

3) the unemployment rate was 4.5%.

4) the DOW JONES hit a record high--14,000 +

5) American's were buying

new cars, taking cruises,

vacations o'seas, living

large!...

Are you with me so far?

Is any of that not true?

But some American's wanted

more & thought 'CHANGE' would be good............So, in

2006 they voted in a

Democratic Congress &

yep--we got 'CHANGE' all

right!.....

1) Consumer confidence has plummeted ;

2) Gasoline is now over $4 a

gallon & climbing!;

3) Unemployment is up to 5%

(a 10% increase);

4) Americans have seen their

home equity drop by $12

TRILLION DOLLARS &

prices still dropping;

5) 2% of American homes are in foreclosure.

6) as I write, THE DOW is

probing another low~~11,300--

$2.5 TRILLION DOLLARS

HAS EVAPORATED FROM

THEIR STOCKS, BONDS &

MUTUAL FUNDS

INVESTMENT

PORTFOLIOS!

YEP, IN 2006 AMERICA

VOTED FOR

CHANGE!...AND SURE GOT IT!!!....

Be careful what you wish for. I am not sure we can handle any more "CHANGE" that Nancy will give us

if "her President" is elected & she has a "veto free" green

light for her parties programs

& the TAXES it will take to pay for them.

JUST HOW MUCH MORE 'CHANGE' CAN YOU STAND???....
