CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL BORN IN 1930's, 1940's, 50's, 60's, 70's and Early 80's !!! First, you survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they carried us. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a tin, and didn't get tested for diabetes. Then after that trauma, your baby cots were covered with bright colored lead-based paints. You had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when you rode your bikes, you had no helmets, not to mention, the risks you took hitchhiking .. As children, you would ride in cars with no seat belts or air bags. Riding in the back of a van - loose - was always great fun. You drank water from the garden hosepipe and NOT from a bottle. You shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and NO ONE actually died from this. You ate cakes, white bread and real butter and drank pop with sugar in it, but you weren't overweight because...... YOU WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING!! You would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on. No one was able to reach you all day. And you were OK. You would spend hours building your go-carts out of scraps and then ride down the hill, only to find out you forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times, you learned to solve the problem . You did not have Playstations, Nintendo's, X-boxes, no video games at all, no 99 channels on cable, no video tape movies, no surround sound, no mobile phones, no text messaging, no personal computers, no Internet or Internet chat rooms..........YOU HAD FRIENDS and you went outside and found them! You fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no lawsuits from these accidents you played with worms(well most boys did) and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever. You made up games with sticks and tennis balls and although you were told it would happen, you did not poke out any eyes. You rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just yelled for them! Local teams had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!! The idea of a parent bailing you out if you broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law! This generation has produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever! The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas. You had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and you learned HOW TO DEAL WITH IT ALL! And YOU are one of them! CONGRATULATIONS! You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids, before the lawyers and the government regulated our lives for our own good. And while you are at it, forward it to your kids so they will know how brave their parents were.

We have a government sending out thousands of Social Security checks to dead folks- because they claim they can't figure out who died- now wanting us to believe that they will be able to keep track of Obamacare scammers.
Those checks to the dead were being sent out under the Bush administration. There is better scrutiny under the Obama administration.

"In Southern California and elsewhere in 2008, investigators analyzed 305 Social Security beneficiaries who were recorded as deceased in their Social Security Administration files. At least 140 of them were still alive."

"Social Security officials already have recovered some of the improperly paid-out funds. They further agreed to investigate "as quickly as possible based on available resources" the correct status of 6,733 potentially deceased individuals identified in the 2008 audit."

Interesting.
A GOP congressman from Indiana a few years ago sent "inappropriate" text messages to one of his pages, he was out of office in less than 90 days and hasn't been a public figure since.
A GOP congressman from Idaho a few years ago allegedly played "footsie" in a Minnesota men's room, he is out of office and politically insignificant now.
A GOP Speaker of the House a few years ago made kind remarks at the 100th birthday of DEMOCRAT senator Strom Thurmond, who was a noted racist decades prior, the GOP Speaker is drummed out of office in a couple of months.
A SOCIALIST/DEMOCRAT President has his genitalia sucked and ejaculates in the face of a female employee, commits perjury when questioned about it, becomes the second president in US history to be impeached. Years later he gives the keynote speech at the S/D convention and NOW HE IS SWEARING IN THE NEXT MAYOR OF NEW YORK CITY.
First, I wonder how anybody thought it was appropriate for a person who lies under oath to "swear in" anybody. Second, I wonder what level of debauchery a leftist has to achieve to lose the support of the brain-dead S/D voters.
And while we're at it, why do the S/D parasites think the guy's wife has the spine to be a president when she wouldn't stand up to HIM?
Debauchery is a career enhancement in the libtard party.

When Reagan took office, unemployment was 7.7%. It declined steadily during his eight year term and was 5.5% when he left office. While Obama talks vaguely about saving jobs while unemployment remains in the high 7% range - not even including those who stopped looking - Reagan created nearly 20 million jobs.
Under Reagan, productivity grew at a 1.5 percent annual rate, This was lower than in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s but much higher than in the post-Reagan years. Under Clinton, productivity has increased at an annual rate of just 0.3 percent per year--the worst presidential performance since that of Herbert Hoover.

How members of congress under Reagan took an oath to destroy his presidency? The only lesson to be learned is to keep Republicans out of Congress.

When I was younger a guy I worked for got fired. The day before my interview for his job he told me to put as much distance between us as I could. Instead I defended him and didn't get the job. I learned you can remain loyal to someone and still put distance between yourself and their policies.

Are you always so clueless and into childish finger pointing?

The government cannot keep track of who is dead -a fact that named no one

Therefore:

The inability of government to monitor massive programs leaves little hope that they will be successful at tracking a new one.

Your comment did not refute what was stated.

The New American Economy: The Failure of Reaganomics and a New Way Forward
http://www.amazon.com/The-New-American-Econom...
As a domestic policy advisor to Ronald Reagan, Bruce Bartlett was one of the originators of Reaganomics, the supply-side economic theory that conservatives have clung to for decades. In The New American Economy, Bartlett goes back to the economic roots that made Impostor a bestseller and abandons the conservative dogma in favor of a policy strongly based on what’s worked in the past. Marshalling compelling history and economics, he explains how economic theories that may be perfectly valid at one moment in time under one set of circumstances tend to lose validity over time because they are misapplied under different circumstances. Bartlett makes a compelling, historically-based case for large tax increases, once anathema to him and his economic allies. In The New American Economy, Bartlett seeks to clarify a compelling and way forward for the American economy.
“Bruce Bartlett, who took the measure of President Bush in his New York Times bestseller, Impostor, has written another highly useful winner: The New American Economy. In this short, tough-minded and often amusing book, he lays out what the Obama Administration is doing to the economy and tells why it will work.”
—Richard Whalen, Senior policy adviser to Ronald Reagan and author of The Founding Father: The Story of Joseph P. Kennedy
Obama. deficit? spending? revenues? do you even know the real numbers?
Again, you're criticizing the guy who at least places in the high-jump hurdles and pretend like the guy who's dead last and who can barely make one hurdle is the winner instead.



Why do you keep doing that? There's absolutely no comparison to Reagan's policies and Obama's. Even if Reagan comes in second or third.

One last one before I go!

A South Carolina football player was driving when he saw the flash of a traffic camera.. He figured that his picture had been taken for exceeding the limit, even though he knew that he was not speeding... Just to be sure, he went around the block and passed the same spot, driving even more slowly, but again the camera flashed. Now he began to think that this was quite funny, so he drove even slower as he passed the area again, but the traffic
camera again flashed. He tried a fourth time with the same result. He did this a fifth time and was now laughing when the camera flashed as he rolled past, this time at a snail's pace.

Two weeks later, he got five tickets in the mail for driving without a seat belt.

You can't fix stupid!

With this administration, the more corrupt the navigators, the better. Makes it easier to deflect corruption at the very top when the low man on the totem pole gets blamed.
