wake up folks! Our economy is doomed unless we begin cutting this deficit NOW! Not freezing parts of it in 2011, not just growing it less, but CUTTING IT NOW!
For those who are blindly saying GLW is a Double, or what a great future this stock has, you are looking into a future government environment that will make this impossible. I am a huge fan of GLW, and own lots of it, but I know that the future of GLW may not have anything to do with how good of a company this is - if the government sours our future with an out-of-control, ruinous deficit.
Government employment and programs have grown hugely over the last year - that is a good place to start with CUTS, but then it must go to the welfare state, and all of the vote-for-me socialist programs. And it must start NOW!
Think about job creation. Idiots want to create more and more gov't jobs, federal and state. Idiots think gov't jobs pay a lot of taxes. The entire payroll of gov't jobs is paid for by the people in private industry. Gov't employees salary is just re-shuffled taxes paid by income producing employers, the private sector. Did you see recently that congress just raised their salary about $5,000/year. Like the old saying; "When the hogs feeding at the trough can dictate the kind of slop being fed, the farmer is in big trouble". Your hard earned money.
