    "Don't look back" Van Morrison ! Dismiss with best wishes the Obama Economic Team and get the USA back in the saddle ! Who does Obama think he is ? Robin Hood ? We'll all get little green hats with a feather and we're all in the economic woods in this country. See the forest for the trees ! We see the tree marked American Jobs Act and it's even been sold on U-tube. Is there anywhere without the selling invasion of govt.interference ? Seriously,some of this American Jobs Act is good but Bill Clinton needs to work with the Republicans to tweek it. They've gone mad as hecks ,bells and cocktail shells.Not seeing much about it that stimulates the economy and creates jobs. We heard all that on the last 800 billion dollar stimulus and where are we now ? We have the bow and arrows to play Robin Hood in Obama's economic regulations and policy in the woods.
    0 corporate tax rate for our American textile manufactures and we'll buy silk only from China. How's that for revise NAFTA ? Will it work for American citizens ? How much out of a dollar does the govt. want Americans to keep ? Where is our Post Office and it says closed ! Gee wiz,the 70's generation sure got left holding the country's broke bag. Why ? Bill Clinton needs to revise and please go get Hillary Clinton on it. This is not her economic agenda and don't try to copy her paper in the classroom either. The goal is seen and how do we reach that goal ? Get the govt. out of the way and get the regulations and policy straightened out so that Americans are back to work. Big Govt. is choking the economy and so are Obama's regulations and policy. Now tax the rich ? Oh yeah,the country is about bank-rupt and who's got money ? The rich people do and we'll tax them ? Penny Mack and Gang of 6 Plan is looking better and better. Have Bill Clinton call Senator Coburn and allow them to work together. Do that reach across the river politically divided thing called team up. Save America From Going Bank-Rupt ! "Jobs Baby Jobs." Hillary was yelling that two years ago ! Who is Gov Perry giving a speech ? Is he getting National Security breifings already ? "Don't Look Back" to ya by Van Morrison. Buffett compared to a school teacher ? See 15 % capital gains and get real. The weathy do pay their share and then give some more. Be fair and class is on the inside and we're not doing class warfare. Clean up your govt. waste of American tax dollars spent like fools. Thank-you ! Crank up James Brown and rock on go Bill Clinton !

    The filthy rich should stop copping out, and pay taxes suitable for their income bracket.
