    Dear Uncle Jay the Senate jumped all over the auto makers for flying their company jets to Washington. I heard that the speaker of the house Nancy Polanski(??)
    uses a miltary transport to move her and her entourage around. Thanks, Uncle Jay for checking this out.

    Thank goodness you were able to work in the “analog lady.”
    And really, it’s been almost a week, isn’t everything fixed yet? What’s the hold up?
    Wait, you mean it’s politics as usual? Well at least we can count on another year of Uncle Jay’s analysis.

    Uncle Jay, Bristol Palin writes, “Is the ‘Honeymoon’ supposed to take place before or after the baby is born, and if after, then does this ‘Honeymoon’ take place before or after the wedding?”

    And why do people have their honeymoon in Viagra Falls? Does it rise or does it falls. I feel like such an oxymoron

    Dear Uncle Jay,

    With all the name calling flying around I have found myself a little confused about what these “-ism” and “-ist” words really mean. Mr. Obama is called a “socialist” and lots of people are using the word “facists” about lots of other people. What do these words mean? I read about it on the internet and it seems like one uses money to make people depend on the government, and the other uses force to make people depend on the government. But isn’t that kinda the same thing in the end? Then why do some people think socialism is a good thing? I sure hope you can explain it for me. Thanks Uncle Jay.

    y’know, i’m starting to wish your videos were FOUR minutes instead of ONLY three… sometimes there just doesn’t seem to be enough time to REALLY get all the zingers in!

    love the programs! don’t stop!
    i’m still in withdrawal from Calvin and Hobbes.

    I’m shocked he didn’t say anything over who is in charge of the white house or maybe who has the real power.

    Nancy Pelosi claims she can get anything done because the people love her. Rahm Emanuel, his chief of staff claims Obama does nothing without his OK and Obama answers no questions at this time.

    Maybe next week.

  7. Nick Says:

    Dear Uncle Jay,
    I love the programs; I only wish you could make the show longer to answer some of the great questions I see posted here every week, such as the differences between fascism and socialism. Or between socialism and communism. And all the other -isms that confuse adults who never had Uncle Jay to explain it to them.

    Keep up the great analyses, and keep disillusioning our children before they’re fully indoctrinated. It’ll prevent midlife crises!

    My tax dollars [50 billion dollars worth of bailout] went to Citigroup. They just bought a new 12 seater airplane. How long do i have to wait to get my “ride” to the west coast? Would 2 weeks be to soon?
    Do you know where i can buy a used Persian rug for $187,000?

  9. Denise Says:

    What does it mean when Uncle Jay becomes front page news on the Chicago Tribune’s webpage?

  10. Stephen Scott Says:

    Dear Uncle Jay,
    Last week, President Obama told Republicans not to listen to Rush Limbaugh. Is he an elected official? Or just some radio D.J? If he’s on the radio, how come he never plays the cool music I like to listen to. All he does is talk, and talk, and talk. And if that’s the case, then why do Republicans listen to him. Frankly, I wish he would be quiet and play some cool rap music.

  11. David Bareford Says:

    Hi Uncle Jay,
    My Dad says Mr Obama has turned this country into a “Banana Republic” in one short week. Is that because of global warming? Does everybody get the bananas?
    What’s a “short week”?

  12. daisyfae Says:

    Dear Uncle Jay,

    Will the United States get “Honeymoon Cystitis” next week when the presidential honeymoon is over? Will there be burning and urgency?

    Concerned and hoarding antibiotics,


  13. truecardinal Says:

    President Obama’s honeymoon period is almost over, and I think that from then on he will make many new great changes.
