Your age, but definitely not your maturity group...
Maybe you should be looking for new friends at a frat party. At least they would have the excuse of youth for their drama.

Obama admitted he was being naive at the time, so yeah... I'd call him "Buck Obama". The other difference is we weren't struggling to get out of a recession in 2006.
Oh, I think he knew all too well what failing to raise the debt ceiling at that time would have meant. Are we really supposed to believe that he had no clue that defaulting on our debt obligations in 2006 would have had dire consequences? Please. If he was that naïve, he had no business running for President a mere year later and being elected 2 years later.
Uncle_Joe wrote:
<quoted text>"I think that it’s important to understand the vantage point of a Senator versus the vantage point of a President. When you’re a Senator, traditionally what’s happened is this is always a lousy vote. Nobody likes to be tagged as having increased the debt limit for the United States by a trillion dollars… As President, you start realizing, "You know what? We– we can’t play around with this stuff. This is the full faith in credit of the United States." And so that was just a example of a new Senator, you know, making what is a political vote as opposed to doing what was important for the country. And I’m the first one to acknowledge it."
He can say what he wants to now, but he just sounds like a hypocrite to me. It's pure politics.

Also, his comments ignore the fact that we wouldn’t have to play around with the debt ceiling or have a fight if he would put something on the table in terms of cuts. He doesn’t want to put anything on the table. He just wants to keep spending us into oblivion and expects Republicans to just go along with him.
Uncle_Joe wrote:
<quoted text>Throwing dueling quotes won't change the fact that a sudden pull back on government spending is likely to kill any recovery we have. We need long term deficit reduction & it needs to include military spending as well as domestic programs. It also needs to include more revenue. Spending is high as percentage of GDP, but revenue is at a post WWII low as a percentage of GDP. Obama has said as much. The Tea Party is in denial about the cost of having a nation worth being a citizen of.
Who said anything about drastic cuts, right now? How about we just start with some cuts? As of now, there are no cuts on the table to non-discretionary spending programs and he has never given any indication that he will ever be serious about cuts. Instead, Obama spent his whole campaign deceiving Americans and doing nothing except talking about taxing folks making over 250k, which is nothing more than sticking our finger in the dyke.

I'll say it again, every economist with any credibility has said we cannot get out of our debt situation with just tax cuts or just spending cuts. We need a combination of the two. We've already raised taxes a little bit (and we will need to raise them more). Now is the time for a little bit of spending cuts....

True. My friend is 34, and the woman he's had 5-6 dates with and he are friends on FB. No way would I do that.
I *met* J on MySpace. I think "friending" kind of worked the same way on there, no? But another guy I met on there and briefly dated, I blocked him the second it went south.

<quoted text>Hah! I did that! I have a fake page with no content on it. I took a picture of a celebrity off the web, entered an obviously fake set of personal details, and started friending people.
I stocked the pond by friending some local celbrities so it looked like I had some friends. Then I started adding people from HS and college and then random people that would show up on the "you might know" list. I log in every few weeks just to see and to try adding more friends. I think I have like 50 friends. Some people have even sent me a friend request first.
That is exactly what J did/does. Then he trolls. His first account, he was a hot chick (random innanet girl) and "she" got up to about 900 friends. Facebook shut that one down when people started complaining. New profile is a guy and doesn't have as many friends.

People are just that dumb. They'll see that they have 10 friends in common with him and friend him. Like, "I must know him from somewhere..."

I would be open to friending someone I had gone on 5 or 6 dates with. As you say, you can dink them from your friends list if things go south.

I would be annoyed if she was posting stuff to me all the time. I don't post much on there. My buddy was dating this crazy beyatch who was blowing up his wall and getting into fights and arguments with other women on his wall. It was so funny to observe, but Bambi and I were thinking, why is he dating someone like this. Fortunately, it didn't last.

This is why I do not get into FB all that much. That "friending" business beyond those that you actually know is silly.

So it's good she was friends with him on FB, so her crazy was public and she couldn't hide it!

I accepted all kinds of friend requests when I was new to FB -- mostly, former coworkers and HS friends. I've since gone through and deleted a lot. AS in, "Oh, after we became FB friends, we never talked, so after two years, I'm cleaning this up a bit."

I wish FB would make it easier to delete friends. It's three clicks per friend now.

Oh, we all got to see it first hand too...

We went out as a group one night and had a few drinks at my place before we left. She broke a glass (no big deal), but kept going on and on about how sorry she was ... to the point where it was annoying.

Then while we were out she for some inexplicable reason clawed my other buddy in the back ... so hard that it left scratch marks on him through his shirt. Guys wife, who was with us, was pissizzed. Just weird, that one.

We are kind of a close group ... we all ride together and go to the lake together ... go down to Myrtle together ... go out on the town and try to meet up about once a month for dinner. After that, we were all telling him he needs to lose that chick. It lasted a little longer as a booty call before he finally kicked her to the curb.

I must say, tho, that the facebook stuff was f'ing hilarious for me and Bambi. So bizarre.

That's what friends should do, IMHO. Be the voice of reason when you're thinking with your crotch.

Yeah, after 5-6 dates, sure. But not after zero dates.

FWIW, if you read that story about the boy in Indiana who was abducted by his grandparents and he's been found 19 years later in Minnesota, please know that what you've read probably is wrong and misleading. The stories I've seen in non-Minnesota newspapers have been inaccurate and paint the grandparents as saints and the mother as a homeless person living in her car.(Something she did do for *three days* while waiting for housing to open up.)

AFter she got back on her feet and got an apartment, the courts said she deserved to work on getting her son back full time (she had him on weekends so she could focus on employment), and that's when the grandparents took off.

This is what her lawyer is saying, there is no proof of any of that yet.
I also read she is mildly retarded (other words used).
Much to this story, and I am favoring nobody.

Not just her lawyer, but the cops involved as well.

I would prefer that the grandparents be sent to prison until they die.

Chicago papers were saying that the boys father was not in the picture. That presumably would be the grandparents son.
It would be awfully hard to hide 19 years when they were able to track the boy through his social security number, which means someone knew the number.
Separate and apart from the grandparents actions, it doesn't sound like anyone was looking for the kid too hard.

FYI, if you know someone's SS# and have a valid reason to search for them, you can send a letter to the IRS who will send a letter to the last employer who shows wages paid in on that number and tell the "lost " person someone is looking for him.
