The point was that the (average) price would be lower and would have been lower for the past forty months if not for Obama policy.

Carol,
Any plans on getting back to me on allowing all children into that religious school to get a better education?
Sounds like you're arguing my point for me.

Otherwise, I have no idea what you're talking about.

And try as Republicans may to deny it, most of the borrowing occured during the tenures of their presidents.
You overlooked the last two years of the Bush administration. Democrats were in control of Congress - and spending.

You also overlooked the spending in the first two years of Obama's administration. Democrats were in control of Congress then too - and spending.

The question now is. Which party finally gets the status quo can't continue?

Yes I would mind; and that's funny, I was going to say that if the public tax payer has to pay for religious indoctrination; well then it would have to be fair; christian, Hebrew school, Muslim schools, and on and on, I'm sure you can't fathom that.
I have no use for organized religion, it's a business and teaches people to hate others. I'm sure that is not what God intended.
I sent my children to Lutheran school and paid for it myself. After middle school, they went to public high school. Everyone has a choice, pay for it.
Most parents choosing a Christian-based school are Christians themselves.

Again, it's a personal choice - not coercion - by parents of which they have a right to make.

If Muslims wanted to send their children to Muslim schools, they should also have that right as well.

Taxpayers pay for education. Not dictating parents' rights and their freedom to choose the schools.

While President Obama was attending a series of fundraisers in Minnesota on Friday, he made the unexpected decision to pardon an (adorable) criminal he met at one of the functions. Tyler Sullivan is in the fifth grade, according to HyperVocal, and he skipped school on Friday to attend go to work with his dad, Ryan Sullivan. The President was scheduled to make an appearance at the Honeywell factory where the elder Sullivan works. The Sullivan two would up meeting the President, and Obama didn't hesitate to whip out the Presidential parchment and write a note to Tyler's fifth grade teacher Mrs. Ackerman explaining his absence. A "he was with me!" note from the President should do the trick!
I read about that. Actually thought it was very sweet.

It's not about Obama, the man. It's about Obama, the man in power.

You're going to have to first prove Bush was single-handedly responsible for the recesssion.

Then you'll have to prove the housing market collapse, Fannie and Freddie and those who encouraged the ongoing bad loans, the greed on Wall Street and the banks and the Democrats had nothing whatsoever to do with it.

Only insurance covered by religious-affiliated institutions.

I am saying that tax dollars should not be filtered into religious schools.
If public schools would do a better job of educating the children,this wouldn't be such a hot topic. Right now,much less than fifty percent of tax dollars for education actually go to teaching the children. If we get rid of The Department of Education that number will go up,but there is too much money wasted for bureaucrats,administration and mandates.

Why is Obama attacking capitalism?
“Hey, let’s keep talking about Bain Capital!”
Mitt Romney proudly rolled out Bain’s investment history, in which their businesses succeeded in boosting profit and viability in 80% of the cases — keeping in mind that private-equity firms and especially Bain tend to focus on already-troubled firms. Only 5% of their bets resulted in bankruptcy later, which is a rather remarkable record for a private-equity firm.

Bain Capital investments of private equities into the Silicon Valley are what give us the opportunity to use this forum. One third of all venture capital investments go to the high-tech innovation found in Silicon Valley. These investments allow us to use the internet,cell phones,television and many other modern convinces that we all take for granted.

I'd like to share the following comments from a black American

A Black man's point of view.

A BLACK MAN, THE PROGRESSIVE'S PERFECT TROJAN HORSE
By Lloyd Marcus

As millions of my fellow Americans, I am outraged, devastated and extremely angry by the democrat's unbelievable arrogance and disdain for We The People. Despite our screaming "no" from the rooftops, they forced Obamacare down our throats. Please forgive me for using the following crude saying, but it is very appropriate to describe what has happened. "Don't urinate on me and tell me it's raining." Democrats say their mission is to give all Americans health care. The democrats are lying. Signing Obamacare into law against our will and the Constitution is tyranny and step one of their hideous goal of having as many Americans as possible dependent on government, thus controlling our lives and fulfilling Obama's promise to fundamentally transform America.

I keep asking myself. How did our government move so far from the normal procedures of getting things done? Could a white president have so successfully pulled off shredding the Constitution to further his agenda? I think not.

Ironically, proving America is completely the opposite of the evil racist country they relentlessly accuse her of being, progressives used America's goodness, guilt and sense of fair play against her.. In their quest to destroy America as we know it, progressives borrowed a brilliant scheme from Greek mythology. They offered America a modern day Trojan Horse, a beautifully crafted golden shiny new black man as a presidential candidate. Democrat Joe Biden lauded Obama as the first clean and articulate African American candidate. Democrat Harry Reid said Obama only uses a black dialect when he wants.
White America relished the opportunity to vote for a black man naively believing they would never suffer the pain of being called racist again. Black Americans viewed casting their vote for Obama as the ultimate Affirmative Action forAmerica 's sins of the past. Then there were the entitlement loser voters who said, "I'm votin' for the black dude who promises to take from those rich SOBs and give to me."

Just as the deceived Trojans dragged the beautifully crafted Trojan Horse into Troy as a symbol of their victory, deceived Americans embraced the progressive's young, articulate and so called moderate black presidential candidate as a symbol of their liberation from accusation of being a racist nation. Also like the Trojan Horse, Obama was filled with the enemy hiding inside.
Sunday, March 21, 2010, a secret door opened in Obama, the shiny golden black man. A raging army of democrats charged out. Without mercy, they began their vicious bloody slaughter of every value, freedom and institution we Americans hold dear; launching the end of America as we know it.
Wielding swords of votes reeking with the putrid odor of back door deals, the democrats landed a severe death blow to America and individual rights by passing Obamacare.

The mainstream liberal media has been relentlessly badgering the Tea Party movement with accusations of racism. Because I am a black tea party patriot, I am bombarded with interviewers asking me the same veiled question. "Why are you siding with these white racists against America 's first African American president?" I defend my fellow patriots who are white stating, "These patriots do not give a hoot about Obama's skin color. They simply love their country and oppose his radical agenda. Obama's race is not an issue."

Recently, I have come to believe that perhaps I am wrong about Obama's race not being an issue. In reality, Obama's presidency has everything to do with racism, but not from the Tea Party movement. Progressives and Obama have exploited his race from the rookie senator's virtually unchallenged presidential campaign to his unprecedented bullying of America into Obamacare. Obama's race trumped all normal media scrutiny of him as a presidential candidate and most recently even the Constitution of the United States .. Obamacare forces all Americans to purchase health care which is clearly unconstitutional (thus unlawful).

No white president could get away with boldly and arrogantly thwarting the will of the American people and ignoring laws. President Clinton tried universal health care. Bush tried social security reform. The American people said "no" to both president's proposals and it was the end of it. So how can Obama get away with giving the American people the finger? The answer. He is black.

The mainstream liberal media continues to portray all who oppose Obama in any way as racist. Despite a list of failed policies, overreaches into the private sector, violations of the Constitution and planned destructive legislation too numerous to mention in this article, many Americans are still fearful of criticizing our first black president. Incredible.

My fellow Americans, you must not continue to allow yourselves to be "played" and intimidated by Obama's race or the historical context of his presidency. If we are to save America , the greatest nation on the planet, Obama's progressive agenda must be stopped.

... and it keeps getting better!

One fallout from Friday's poor jobs report: President Obama will almost surely have to win re-election with a record high unemployment rate for modern incumbents.

No president since the Great Depression has won re-election with a jobless rate higher than 7.4%, and the latest Labor Department report says the current rate has now ticked up to 8.2%
