What poor reading comprehension we have. The Sequester was owned by both parties.
And please provide some substance re: your tax hike comments.
What part of the article that I posted did you not understand? According to two high level white house aides, it was Obama's idea?

In terms of the Sequester being owned by both parties, that's also not true. Obama lied and said it wasn't his idea, so as to disavow any ownership of it.

Before edog provides some substance how about YOU provide some substance for the things you say...

I wasn't defending him at all. I believed in the beginning when he said whatever it was that was anti-gay marriage, he lied and knew he was lying at the time. I told people that at the time. Iwas not surprised in any way when he "changed his mind." Or had a change of heart or whatever.
Frankly, I've been following John McCain's political career longer than most people. And he was GREAT until the GOP got ahold ofhim and started sticking their puppet hands up his posterior. His flip flops are ridiculous lies. I think he believes what political "experts" tell him, that if he wants to get elected, he needs to pander to X group.
He's starting to speak out more these days -- and military-related stuff is when he really sticks to his beliefs and his character. He won't compromise that stuff, in general. Too bad he's really starting to get up there in years. I expect he'll retire after at most one more term.
Fair enough, Angela. However, I still wouldn't characterize your statement about him lying as "bashing" him.

See, I wasn't the only one. That's exactly how I interpreted her initial comment. I didn't come off as bashing at all.

Whats your point? You did not even provide a link to a news sight, just some latchkey site that promotes its own agenda.

Oh, and your story only proves my contention that gun safety should be taught in schools. This is just another example of a tragic accident, just like so many car crashes involving youngsters who get behind the wheel of a car without adequate training.

We cant go round and round sam unless your actually in the loop!

I just dread the DRAMA (yes it's necessary that it's capitalized) that I *know* is coming with her. I'm glad she's leaving before her POS husband is released from jail, but she's cutting it so close (he gets out in April).

She's a lot of work. Even knowing I'm only going to help her to help herself, she's a lot of work...

True. I didn't want to drive. It's a freaking apartment. Two and 1/2 bedrooms (the 1/2 is really more like a large walk in closet, but it has it's own closet-ette so...) and yeah my niece and HER daughter.

My niece doesn't get along with my sister AT ALL and is still (recently) bitching about a fight they had FIFTEEN years ago. Seriously? Let.It.Go!

Niece's daughter is apparently going back to Oklahoma..in MAY, but ok at least she's *going*. They are waiting for her aunt (I think) who works for Southwest to get her some kind of cheapie ticket. I looked up fares (one way) online the other day. Dude, don't wait,*I* will buy the ticket...just go.

/rant

Next time I move, I'm not telling anyone (ANYone) where I am. Word.

Take the Serenity Prayer and secularize it any way that works for you. I wish you luck and am keeping you in my thoughts.

Well good luck holding up. I hope on some level she appreciates what you are doing for her.

Wow. This kid is definitely beyond rehabilitation:

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/ohio...

He's a teenager who killed 3 other teens, and at his sentencing hearing he wore a white t-shirt on which he had written "Killer," and he flipped off the victims' families. Lock him up and throw away the key.

Where is the 12 year old? Will he be transferring schools?
Given your recent comments about not asking for help, do you have a support system in place to take care of YOU?(Besides us of course) Seriously, this is a big undertaking.

You have hung tough before. Hang tough on this one lady.

As soemone else said, at least its Amtrack and not Bakersfield.
