    I'm exploited every week when I get my paycheck and get the honor of seeing how much my wonderful gov't steals from me to give to others.

    Great point, and if you want to follow the ratio for our dollar's downfall for the next year or so, use the price of oil. Keep $50 a barrel as your benchmark for the ratio. In other words, if oil sells for $50 a barrel, your dollar is worth $1.00.

    So, if oil is going for $100 a barrel, then your dollar is worth $0.50.

    So, if oil is going for $200 a barrel, then your dollar is worth $0.25, and so on.

    EDIT: FYI: When the new currency is brought out for use, this ratio will no longer work.

    My local and state governments exploit me every 10 years to get more federal funding for their pet projects.

    The presentation depicted President Barack Obama as "The Joker," Nancy Pelosi as Cruella De Vil and Harry Reid as Scooby Doo

    Sounds "Spot On" to me, but I also think Pelosi has a clown look with her fake smile.

    So the DNC NEVER EVER exploited the negative feelings about either Bush for fund raising? I am sure they were also upset about all the depictions of W dressed up like Hitler. We are circling the drain and this is the problems we talk about?:dunno:

    If you're a taxpayer, then you're exploited.

    Did this happen to you when Republicans were in charge?

    Something to think about.

    And the Democrats didn't do that last election? Politics as usual, both sides use all means possible, ethical or not. Both sides use statistical analysis, social 'engineers', psychologist, marketing experts. It just gets press when the GOP does it.
