Panelite

I just wanted to make sure everyone knows that panelite went out of business last month. They made the highest quality chrome accessories and now they are gone.

Frankly, I assume that this is a result of the agenda our president has set and it pisses me off. I'm sick of watching business after quality business go under due to the government choking the life out of them. The entire trucking industry is in jeopardy due to the attacks on it from washington. The financial and structural well-being of our country relies on the trucking industry.

Anyways, there's another notch in Obama's belt. You all can guess what I'm thinking.

Now that is really stretching it, their web site is still up, and it would have nothing to do with the ability of people to get imported goods cheaper. What was the name of the light and lens outfit that went out of business about four years ago, was that George's fault? What I am thinking is you need to get laid. Just a thought!

The economy under Bush was healthy. The economy under Obama is pathetic. I'm a capitalist and understand companies going out. But I don't like seeing quality American businesses going out due to a socialistic government leadership.

Stop trying to piss me off.

You must be right under BUSH UNEMPLOYMENT was 750,000 a month higher and it has been going down under Obama every month. Under any math you are BLABBERING, and should be ignored. Ignorance is bliss and as far as I see you are a very blissful type of guy.

John,

you say it right in your description - "retired." Those of us that actually are working in the trucking industry are sick of seeing so many people we work with struggling to keep their heads above water. The trucking industry is the backbone of the US economy. and it is right in the crosshairs of the current administration. i'm a long way from being retired. and cause of that, anyone that attacks my ability to provide for my family is gonna be on my bad side.

The unemployment new fillings in Dec of 2008 was 750,000. Now it is less than 35,000. What do you expect he could do fix everything in a week. Being unemployed or under employed, having to take care of other family members is what happens in hard times. Having someone saying that it is all "Obama's" fault, that is dumb. And having the group that was in control for 6 years totally, and has done nothing but obstruct since then, Blabber about how they know what to do, that is choice. If they knew why didn't they do it. All they do is lie about everything, spread hate, and fear. They talk the talk but never walk the walk. Can you name one thing the Republicans did that lowered the deficit, or in the long run was not proved to be a lie. We have the same group here in Canada, never has a Conservative Government in Canada or the US ran a government that ran a surplus. Where is all the outrage about having all those brave men killed over a lie. Being involved in politics is great but you have to listen to what people are saying and think, history is the best judge. If they have to resort to Hate, Lies, and Fear, then you are being played. Just a thought!
