We spend a lot of time bitching about politicians and how they are failing at bringing jobs to hard workin' `Muricans, and crying about how the big bad one percenters drated up the banks and sent all our jobs overseas. However, we don`t spend much time talking about one of the main features that made America great in the first place. (Yes, I said America`s great. My opinion. No apologies.) We didn`t become awesome by needing someone else to babysit us. We dreamt poo up and got others to join us in various endevours. Our generation doesn`t need to worry about the politicians or the one percenters, we just need to remember we got a pair of balls, and get out there and chase dreams.

"As for the jobs thing, they DID go overseas to India and China and other nations. Once again "fact" is called racism in politics."

It's a fact that wealthy business interests moved the jobs overseas to increase their own wealth, NOT that foreign people took them. Big difference.

I just think it`s racist that foreign people are, once again, the only representatives of this dynamic.

A french guy with a french accent while speaking english is not racist... so why is an chinese chick with a chinese accent "racist"?

I bet if I tried to speak Cantonese I'd have a horrible accent.

As for the jobs thing, they DID go overseas to India and China and other nations. Once again "fact" is called racism in politics.

As for the candidates implication that his reduced spending would somehow cure those problems, Well that`s a Pie Crust Promise - easily made, easily broken.

Re. Suicism:
It's not the "broken Engrish" dude - `tis the coupling of `stereotypical foreign-types` with `domestic employment issues` that`s the problem.
