You get out the car and get into a shouting match. Out of the corner of your eye you see what you think is a gun. What do you do? Stand there? Run? Get in the first shot? Look, in my day to day travels I get far more grief from white people than blacks. I usually don't lump people into groups. I take each person on their own merits.
If I stop at a store & a carload of kids have the music blasting, I would think "kids".

After all, in our youth we probably let the music fly.

Only an anal retentive, troublemaker would tell the kids to turn it down.

The idea this guy was a toter explains the entire affair.

With the threat of a Romney presidency no longer an issue I think we can all relax a little.
Take some time off to hug loved one or maybe take in a movie with friends.
With the dark cloud of Mitt no longer hanging over our heads it's time to look towards the future.
So we can look forward to a President who wants only tax increases and is unwilling to discuss any reductions in spending or entitlements, as evidenced by his campaign commercial today.

<quoted text>Of course, old, heartless, and barren, carol never worries about the children unless they're hers and still sucking public funds to get a four-year degree in six years. "AUSTIN -- Texas has the second-highest birth rate in the nation, and more than 25 percent of those children live in poverty, according to the annual Kids Count survey released Thursday.
The number of children in Texas rose by nearly 1 million between 2000 and 2010, and they accounted for more than half of the U.S. child population growth. But 39 percent of Texas mothers received no, or very late, prenatal care, and the percentage of babies born underweight jumped 13 percent during that same period, according the Texas survey, conducted every year by the Austin-based Center for Public Policy Priorities and funded by Methodist Healthcare Ministries and the Annie E. Casey Foundation."
Don't mothers have to WANT to receive prenatal care?

Or is government now responsible for hauling them off to the doctor's office?

What does your post have to do with anything I posted anyway?

<quoted text>Dear phuckface, So you are saying that government spending can actually pull a country out of a depression?

Perhaps, when the spending is on the production of necessary goods and not merely a wealth transfer resulting in no productive activity, such as Obama's stimulus.

Apparently so. This president walks out in a huff if he doesn't like the game when it's not going his way.
Or leaves Washington before a potential crisis instead of sticking around to try and avoid it.
Even had his picture taken waving good-bye last week.

One might think he doesn't really want to be the president.
Obviously, he doesn't, which is why he hasn't accomplished anything worthwhile. However, he really does enjoy the spotlight, the travel, and the adoration of his rock fans, which is why the nation must suffer through 4 more years of the same...or possibly worse.

<quoted text> Obama needs all the help he can get, since he is still so completely incompetent. No wonder he is having Romney visit; Romney actually has the experience and successful background to teach the incompetent Obama how to be a successful executive, despite the Obama worshippers who only seek magic hopey-changey fantasies.
Big Bird is set to attend the White House meeting between Romney and President Obama. He tweets he will not ruffle any feathers. The Bird Summit is expected to have tight security for all parties involved.

Hah! Fat chance.

Clearly, Obama is determined to continue with the successful economic strategy that marked his first four years. With any luck, we can expect 8% unemployment and GDP growth of 1%.

If we are lucky.

Obama's plan included spending cuts. When the f*ck will you right whiners pull your heads of out of your asses for a change. Quit being so damned uninformed.

The last time Obama reformed an entitlement, you fricken morons went screaming through the streets how Obama gutted Medicare.

Make up your mind.

i can't respond to a hypothetical that i wouldn't respond to in the first place.

why should i care if they're playing loud music? what business is it of mine? i'm going to be sitting in front of the store for just a few minutes. so unless i'm not of sound mind, which includes being under the influence(i don't drink), i'm not going to be acting like an arrogant idiot who has entitlement issues.

it seems like you're looking for some sort of justification for the shooting. you should take into consideration that there may not be any.

Obama was referring to addressing global warming. Increasing CAFE standards & his green energy programs were starters.

We need a cap & trade in his second term.

Obama's speech today demanded only tax increases on the wealthy, without any discussion of spending reductions. Once the Republicans concede on tax increases, any discussion of spending and entitlements will cease.

Obamacare is a new and hugely expensive entitlement passed at a time when reduction of entitlements is necessary. A step in the wrong direction.
