    That’s about how it feels. I don’t see any help for working people to feel comfortable or secure, and yet, the stock market is booming, bankers are making huge bonuses again, and the rich don’t even know what to do with all their money, except not pay taxes with it. Do you remember when taxes were higher and everyone paid their share? We used to get roads, bridges, repairs, decent public works and buildings, now it’s all cut costs, the rich need their tax cuts.

    Bush (the first) told us this about NAFTA. The only boats which rose were a few huge yachts.

    To be fair, Clinton also championed NAFTA.

    Yeah, let the dwindling middle class pay for everything, the rich need tax breaks. Too bad there is only room for a few multi-millionaries and billionaires. No matter how hard any individual works, only a few can be the CEOs of huge bonuses and gigantic salaries.

    “Shhhhhhh. That would not fit their agenda to blame Republicans or conservatives (they are not necessarily the same) for everything.”
    The only truly successful aspect of the bush-cheney regime was their wanton shifting of wealth from the poor and middle class to the 1%.

    I am still wating for the trickle down; if the senate goes republican I expect it to start the trickle down.

    We ARE the 99%—- that means we have the votes to elect people who will actually represent middle class workers and provide a safety net for those who are trying to get into the middle class.We all need to know who is supporting each candidate. That is who they will be working for. They have no choice if they want to stay in office. You have to do the bidding of whoever who is paying your way, just the same as we all do in our jobs. So, before going to vote, look it up on the internet. Open Secrets is a good site, but there are plenty.If the candidate is getting their money from small donors or from unions, they are going to be working for middle class working people. If their donations are from corporationsor from 1%ers, don’t figure they are going to go against them and do anything for the middle class.It would be political suicide.

    Now that you bring it up, I’ll now tell all of you what I think. True, Clinton did.

    Before the election, Bill Clinton was saying that he didn’t think the Act was going to benefit the U.S., that it would probably cost us too many jobs. At the same time, up in Canada, Jean Cretien, soon to be Prime Minister was saying the same thing. Both said that if elected, they were going to look it over and maybe make some changes. Both were elected.

    However, soon after assuming their respective offices, both did an about-face and worked hard to push it through!

    It is still my suspicion, my belief, that NAFTA was written by those who wanted it. Bush the First was expected to glide it through Congress into law. But when Bush lost, those authors were alarmed. I suspect strongly that both Clinton and Cretien were “advised” that NAFTA was a done deal, that no amendments were to be made, and that they MUST see it through.

    We were told that NAFTA was to make Canada, the U.S. and Mexico a solid economic block so as to compete with Europe and Asia. Since Mexico’s standard of living would increase, more Mexicans would purchase U.S. made goods, and illegal immigration would soon disappear. I can still see Bush on TV telling us A RISING TIDE LIFTS ALL BOATS. But, within two years, the NAFTA sponsors discovered that Mexico is still a land of bandits, with a tiny oligarchy, and bribes demanded at every level. Then, the focus shifted to Asia, then Eastern Europe..

    Do you think NAFTA helped the U.S.?

    By the way, Tigger, I voted for Ross Perot twice, and I agree totally with your comment.

    You clearly do not understand that only so many people can be the CEO of big bonuses and gigantic salaries. Those positions are very limited.

    And yet, the republicans insist on telling us Clinton was a “liberal” (either Clinton – you pick).

    so your message is, “You have to work yourself nearly to death, get divorced, ruin your health, estrange yourself from your family and friends…”
    Ever hear of a term called “Quality of Life”? Here’s another one (and it’s in the Constitution): “The Pursuit of Happiness”.
    You make the best of the time you have, and the abilities that God gave you. If a person doesn’t have the wherewithal to be a (expletive) CEO, then what kind of Darwin universe do you live in to say that person should be kicked to the curb because he doesn’t measure up to your standards of near-sighted goals? Because the policies of the elected officials who espouse does exactly that: “I got mine, and screw the rest of you, because I had to suffer to get where I am.”
    (and in many cases, they had to suffer with a silver spoon, and never worked in the way you described)
    I suppose you “win” if you get the most toys and die with broken health or with a mean, vicious outlook on life and your fellow human being?
    They say nice guys never win. I say they’re just running in a different race. Just how much (expletive) money do you need in order to be “happy”? How many college degrees do you need before you have the acclaim or whatever it is you feel you are missing in life?
    Think about it, next time you look down from your Silver Tower, and sneer at those huddling masses who didn’t have the “right stuff” to do what you did.
    Here’s a clue: the graveyards are FULL of rich people who “succeeded”.

    When you make it to the 1%.

    And good luck with that; they have the means to restrict access to all but a very few.
