USA citizens die in Europe! Warm beer? Nasty sausage?
Does the President personally figure out every citizens security detail on foreign soil?
Of course not!
Can we learn a lot from this terrible tragedy?
Yes!
Just like Bush/Cheney lining the Iraq street corners with our citizens: they were picked off in drive by's!
On video!
Bush/Cheney: they love us over there! Welcomed us in! REALLY?
oh one more thing loser: fffffffck you!
"Every citizen deployed to a foreign country is told "you could be killed over there." EVERY SINGLE ONE."

Are citizens deployed in highly volatile countries warned that State WON'T increase security even when a deteriorating environment forces consulate security officers to request additional protection?

Call me old fashioned but I think they should pay minimum wage and make them work for their tips. It may cause the food and beverage price to go up a bit but the service would be much better,IMO. I refuse to go any place that has a built in tip on the receipt. Tips are for rewarding good service not part of their pay,IMO. I'm a very good tipper if the service is great but goes down from there.

Once took the President and Vice-President of Honda Mexico to Hooters. The waitress took our wing and beer order and then talked to her friends across the room. I had to get up and get our beers then the wings. Even had to go to the bar for a pitcher refill. Time for the bill and there was a 18% tip built into it. I told her I wasn't paying for the tip. She called the manager and he threatened to call the cops. I said go ahead. He didn't call them but he took the tip off the bill. I wasn't even paying Honda was.

No I don't blame Bush. Bush had his time in office and what he handed to Obama was less than desirable and would have been a big job for McCain as well had he been elected. But hey, keep thinking that our problems started with Obama.
Did I say all our problems started with Obama? I am saying they didn't improve like he said they would, and now he saying he needs 4 more years to get it done. How can he get it done, when he didn't get started on it?
He didn't improve things, did little to nothing, and not really knowing what the hell he was doing in the first place. It only made things worse. All that man did was tell lies, go on talk shows, and make a fool out of himself with a Cartoon Film (Lion King) and Big Bird.

We already know Mitt Romney is cutting social security & medicare by making seniors pay more. What's he cutting from veteran benefits?
You see, Mitt says saving money in the medicare program is bad. So he just decided to make the recipients pay more.
Education is a matter of national security & you want o let it to states that teach there is no evolution & cavemen rode dinosaurs.
so you refuse to address the problem of entitlements and government pensions....stick your head in the sand and hope it goes away......

agree with you....would prefer that the prices reflect an adequate wage, without tipping....but tips added to the bill automatically are offensive.....
