Obama vs Free Enterprise
#1
One of the very best analysis of what the President is likely to do comes from the man who engineered the campaign that put Bill Clinton into the White House the second time, Dick Morris.
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.dickmorris.com/blog/2009/01/21/the-obama-presidency-here-comes-socialism/">http://www.dickmorris.com/blog/2009/01/ ... socialism/</a><!-- m -->

My wife doesn't want to even hear what he has to say because he was such a disgusting pig as to be on the phone chatting with Bill while in the midst of toe-sucking. She is an interesting case-study in someone who has lived as a conservative continuing to vote for democrats, but she is not the point. The point is not the messanger, it is the message Mister Morris makes so well that all the 'right-wing-hate-radio' talk shows have been talking about it.

Morris outlines the political events that will cause the creation of a permanent democrat voting bloc ......
................ by removing people from the tax rolls.

When people do not pay taxes, they do not care how much those who do pay taxes pay, and they will vote for the party that keeps it that way.

What the heck does this have to do with Amway?

Jim Floor has been saying this for more than twenty years.

Maybe you should pay attention to what Diamonds say.

By that logic *anything* a Diamond says is therefore relevant to Amway. I would instead suggest that Mr Floor's comments would not pass accreditation standards.

This post is not relevant to Amway, I've moved it to "anything goes"

Shatto - I made mention earlier of my concern about your continued posting about topics that are not relevant to Amway. This forum is not here for you to promote your personal religious and political beliefs, and so far you appear to have little interest in using it for the purpose it IS here for.

Please redress the balance and contribute to the discussion about Amway.

I disagree here IBOFB. Political talk with regards to the U.S. free enterprise system is relevant.

Whether it is right or wrong, we agree or disagree, it is relevant nonetheless.

Now that Obama is my president, I will give the guy the benefit of the doubt and some time before passing judgment or criticisms. However, expect in 30 days to hear from me about...good or bad! :wave:

Again, by that standard, virtually ANYTHING is relevant. Shall we fill the website up with nothing but links to articles about different peoples opinions on the different goverment policies of every government of every country where Amway operates?

All relevant!

And why stop there? What about discussion on the various crises in the middle east? Clearly Amway won't be opening in the middle east until problems there are sorted out - and that's affecting my business! I've had several Iranians want to join and start building networks in Tehran.

So anything about that region is relevant, is it not? Even if the post makes no mention of the Amway business and the link makes no mention of Amway?

If that's what you want, then I recommend you go start your own forum.

While we are on the subject.... This story is just in from the AP:

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama wants automakers to make greener cars at a time when General Motors and Chrysler are hanging by the thread of a massive government loan and auto sales have plummeted to their lowest levels in more than two decades.

Obama's plans could bring smaller cars, more hybrids and advanced fuel-saving technologies to showrooms, but car shoppers will probably pay more upfront because the new rules are expected to cost the hamstrung industry billions of dollars.

"The consumer needs to understand that they will see significant increases in the cost of vehicles," said Rebecca Lindland, an auto analyst for the consulting firm IHS Global Insight. Her firm estimated the upgrades could add $2,000 to $10,000 to the price of a vehicle.

Look back in US history. Most of the presidents give away their real "agendas" (harsh word...not meant to be..synonym anyone?). The first 30 days is where they "set the tone" for their administrations and what they want to accomplish in 4 or 8 years.

One good thing, if the Obama regime potentially perpetuates our economy in a downward spiral, more folks will be more open to making additional income. :grin:

Remind me again what the title for this thread is called? Is it ANYTHING GOES? In the GENERAL CHAT section??

It is not my choice to have a thread called "ANYTHING GOES"...and then question what is put in that particular category...when it is CLEARLY CALLED ANYTHING GOES. Is there some other definition of GENERAL CHAT and or ANYTHING I am not aware of?

I come up with this
Quote:Anything
–pronoun
1. any thing whatever; something, no matter what: Do you have anything for a toothache?
–noun
2. a thing of any kind.
–adverb
3. in any degree; to any extent; in any way; at all: Does it taste anything like chocolate?


Quote:If that's what you want, then I recommend you go start your own forum.

This is just childish dude. This is a 4 yr old's threat. Similar to, "I am mad so I will take my ball and go home"

It is also a tired excuse for when things are not going YOUR way, or the WAY you see them.

TB2IBO,

This thread was not initially posted under Anything Goes. Shatto posted it under Amway/General (after I had at least twice previously asked him not to post such articles there). I moved the article to the Anything Goes thread.
