14% unemployment is sure coming through with the jobs. Kind of like the promise he made to to our returning veterans that he would speed up the process through the VA to get them the help they need. The VA is our government run healthcare system for our veterans. Claims processing delays went from 36% backlog in 2008 to the new "fixed" number that reflects the great work and promises the president made. The backlog is now at 68%. A story this morning on the only channel that will bring news critical of the president, Fox News, had a soldier that has waited two years now for a basic check up through the VA to help manage his Chrones Disease. Turns out that Benghazi was not really an official Embassy, but rather a secret CIA headquarters where we took prisoners to be "interrogated". The attack was by the radicals to end that practice by the USA, or more directly, the policies of the president of the United States. The icing is that the President himself instructed his administration to cover up the truth, and tell the American people, and even his own party, a total fabrication of the events surrounding Benghazi. In other words, he lied. Not a big deal though. Just a bump in the road to democrats, who want us to believe that the liar Susan Rice should not be punished for her "talking points" discussions with the American people. After all, she was only lying to us because the president told her too, so it's not her fault and we should appoint her and move on. Thats what the democrats would do if there was a republican president, right?

The VA is our socialist system to help veterans. Claims times went up because President Obama greatly increased spending at the VA which encouraged more veterans than ever before to use the facility.

Between 2009 and 2010 (two years) Republicans in the Senate filibustered more bills than in the 50s. 60s and 70s combined. Keep in mind that Medicare, Medicaid, Civil Rights, Voting Rights and many other controversial bills were passed during those THIRTY years as opposed to the TWO years of ensuring President Obama was a one-term President. We are lucky the Republicans were not able to keep more hard-working Americans out of work.

IF I had a problem with your spelling, I would have said so. Can you point out where I said so?

It's not very hard for one to determine by your posts that they are a better person than you; spelling errors aside.

GQ: How old do you think the Earth is?

Marco Rubio: I'm not a scientist, man. I can tell you what recorded history says, I can tell you what the Bible says, but I think that's a dispute amongst theologians and I think it has nothing to do with the gross domestic product or economic growth of the United States. I think the age of the universe has zero to do with how our economy is going to grow. I'm not a scientist. I don't think I'm qualified to answer a question like that. At the end of the day, I think there are multiple theories out there on how the universe was created and I think this is a country where people should have the opportunity to teach them all. I think parents should be able to teach their kids what their faith says, what science says. Whether the Earth was created in 7 days, or 7 actual eras, I'm not sure we'll ever be able to answer that. It's one of the great mysteries.

Should be a fun four years.

So the job losses being announced by American companies that are going to be hugely affected by BarryCare are the fault of the republicans? I don't remember even one single republican voting for that job killing act. Thousands are losing their jobs over the next month or two as a result. Doctors are retiring in record numbers. So your telling me that more money is the problem with getting our veterans the services they need? That could only make sense to a liberal.

First you are assuming that the job losses being announced are directly related to Obamacare.

Second, why would any lay-offs occur so early, even before it costs a corporation a dime?

Finally, some companies that were listed on "the list" such as Boeing have absolutely no need to layoff anyone due to Obamacare. The insurance program that they have carried for the last 20 years more than meets anything required by Obamacare......and yet it was on "the list." HINT: The list is a sham.

Show me one place I said more money was necessary to get Vets needed care.

SHow me one reason ANY business would layoff now due to Obamacare.

Did Rubio commit to any answer or even say he had a preference for one answer over the other?

No, he did not. Again, I thought he gave a very balanced answer that there is room for discussion of all points of view. So what is wrong with that?

Because the discussion do not belong in the same place for the most part. One discussion belongs in school science classes and the other belongs in church or at home.

The alternative of course is to allow the discussion in school and in church with each saying the other is wrong.

I will go one further, the day that people start looking at religion and science as equals, religion will lose. Science is backed by physical evidence and experimentation that is reproducable. As a general rule, the world of science, world-wide is in general agreement over most things.

You can not even get religion to agree much with other religions or even within itself. Catholicism, the largest Christian religion has no problem with evolution or with world being old. Even a majority of Protestants do not believe young earth ideas.

Why the fear of allowing discussion on differing views in schools? I don't believe in a young earth but at the same time, I have a very difficult time accepting that we are an accidental product of the big bang. The odds are stacked so tremendously against it that it isn't even feasible let alone reproducible. If minds are to be opened to ideas in the search for truth, then all possibilities need to be presented. They don't need to be promoted but just presented as ideas.

If you want church views made to look silly in science class go for it. And understand, there are about as many different church views as there are religions. What are the churches that believe in creationism and "new" earth going to say when the HS science teacher shows students how silly those idea's are?

Are we going to teach the Catholic view and the Hopi Indian beliefs as well?
