Is there an echo in here??10 Things You Didn't Know About Paul Ryan
1. Paul Davis Ryan, the youngest of Paul Sr. and Betty Ryan's four children, was born in Janesville, Wis., on Jan. 29, 1970. Ryan is the fifth generation of his family to live in Janesville.
2. Sharing the same first name as his father, Paul had a childhood nickname: "P. D." (Paul Davis). It was often mistaken for "Petey," which caused Ryan to dislike the nickname.
3. Ryan's father died when Paul was only 16. Using the Social Security survivors benefits he he paid for his education at Miami University in Ohio,received until his 18th birthday, where he completed a bachelor's degree in economics and political science in 1992.
4. Ryan worked as a marketing consultant for his family's construction business before being elected to Congress. Ryan Incorporated Central began as an earthmoving business created by his great-grandfather in 1884.
5. At 28, Ryan was elected to Congress in 1998, and he has been re-elected six times, most recently in 2010.
6. Early in his career as a representative to Congress, Ryan held office hours in an old truck he converted into an office. This allowed him to visit the more far-flung towns in his district.
7. Janna Little, the future Mrs. Paul Ryan, was a Washington tax attorney living in Arlington, Va., when she met him. The Oklahoma native graduated from Wellesley College and George Washington University Law School.
8. Demonstrating his love of the outdoors, in April 2000, Ryan asked Janna to marry him at Big St. Germain Lake in northern Wisconsin, one of his favorite fishing spots. The couple was married in Oklahoma City in December 2000.
9. Ryan and his wife are raising their daughter, Elizabeth, and two sons, Charles and Samuel, in Ryan's hometown.
10. Ryan's hobbies include hunting and fishing. He is a bowhunter and belongs to his hometown's archery association, the Janesville Bowmen.

When a father dies when the child is still under 18, the mother qualifies for Social Security to help with raising the child without the other parent. This applies to everyone, including you should that happen to you. His mother gave him her monthly allotment, and so what? He had the foresight to save it for his education. His father died at a relatively young age of 55, and just maybe she saw a future for her child, and just maybe she did not need the money since his father was an attorney and might have set her up with an insurance policy.
You don't know and neither do we.
It's pretty apparent that he is highly intelligent, most likely and honor student which would have qualified him for scholarships, just like it does every other kid in America with a high IQ and good grades.
He saved that to pay for his education and graduated with a BA Economics and Political Science, Miami University of Ohio (1992)
What you don't seem to grasp is that he was only 16 when he worked at McDonalds. You know nothing of his mother and have no right to be judgmental of this family.
Why don't you look into Obama's government assistance as a foreign student. Tell us where Obama got all his money and who paid for his education --- then you have a right to complain.

MY reply was:
WHERE is any "profanity" in mine?
YES, I "can" lose my cool occasionally, when I get "fed up" with you "obots IGNORANCE"....but there's NO profanity.......
It TAKES the patience of a SAINT to put up with this CRAP daily....
I've done IT this LONG.....
NOT stopping now :)
Til November .....:~)
That is mainly WHY I copy/paste so many of my comments, instead of making my own.... can't STAND a LOT of the "ignorance" on here! Soooo, really HARD to respond! You DO know the ones I'm talking about :)

Yes, yes, yes all I'm saying when he had a chance to use Gov't money given to him he accepted and put it use as he should! Why would he now want the Gov't to stop doing the same for others? I think it’s a reasonable question ...

Frank --- I have been reading his web site, it's huge and takes time to go through it all, but I don't see anywhere where he says he doesn't want the same as he got for others. What he's saying and he is right is, we will not be able to sustain the path we are taking. Too many people on government aid, all kinds of government aid. Billion/Trillions all coming from people busting butt to make a living for themselves and their families. You can't keep taking from the haves and giving to the have-nots, it's resented by those who work hard and find it almost impossible to keep up themselves.
Obama wants to print money as we need it. He wants to legalize 1.8 million illegals to compete with those out job hunting now - and I know several people doing this right now - and the most they can get is part time. Who can live on four hours a day's salary?!! That puts these people on government assistance. And we go round and round spinning our wheels!
You folks who want to tax the small businesses scare them into not wanting to hire for fear that they won't be able to maintain their businesses. And if they can't they simply lay off and double the work load on those who are there. This is the real world, not the multi-multi- millionaires lifestyle these other folks live in.
What is it about we can't keep growing government and expect to ever get out of debt that some people just don't get? You and I can only spend up to our credit card limit. After that we pay huge penalties or we just ask for a few thousand more on the card to cover our over spending going further and further in debt. It's so simple. Government is doing this every minute of the day. Where do you think this kind of illogic spending is going to take us? Do you not worry about this?

Who is this lowlife Canadian? He or she should stay on their side of the border and worry about what's going on up there. They don't live here, they don't deal with American issues, and if they have nothing to contribute other than blasphemous remarks, I probably would have said this and ended with KMA!!!
As for copy and paste. If you do some don't like it, if you don't you get accused of not having a reliable source. So copy and paste is easier. You didn't say it, but you want others to read it without you having to leave half of it out. I have no problem with someone applying a source to their opinion. In a way it has more credibility. A chat board like this is a great way to exchange ideas, bring forth some things you may not be aware of: enlighten and challenge. There is nothing wrong with a good debate, but if you call me an a$$ most likely I will return with a comment.
This comment to you: "All together, you don't amount to a pile of fresh farm manure." Shows ignorance and immaturity. Consider the source!!!

Manifesto puts Hillary chief in Saudi plot
Huma Abedin worked for family institute tied to establishing Islamic America
Although President Obama lavishly praised her over the weekend as an “American patriot,” a manifesto commissioned by the ruling Saudi Arabian monarchy effectively places the work of an institute that employed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s deputy chief of staff at the forefront of a grand plan to mobilize U.S. Muslim minorities to transform America into a Saudi-style Islamic state, according to an Arabic-language researcher.
Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin, was an assistant editor for a dozen years for the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs for the Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs. The institute – founded by her late father and currently directed by her mother – is backed by the Muslim World League, an Islamic organization found in the Saudi holy city of Mecca that was founded by Muslim Brotherhood leaders.

The way Holder tells it he didn't have a clue so I guess he didn't get any info since he knew nothing about f&f. Whoever got the info was duped because they sure didn't get info that those guns would be used to kill the Border Patrol guy. Nothing is ever the fault of Obama and this crooked bunch on the Hill. I can't wait til the whole lot of them are gone and forgotten. Come on November and lets put the trash on the curb and get America back to being America!
