I don't have anything against your ID. I just think that his name and that ideology has no place in modern government and is usually used as bait. I do not care to go down that road today.

You still do not have a clue. It IS NOT student loans, it is called the GI bill which soldiers PAY IN from their checks. Well guess what! Obama took that too. My family members paid in thousands and at this moment cant use it. They paid it in from their paychecks. It was not tax free. Its tbeirs. Thank - God for the republicans, they are in the process of trying to get it reinstated. Why are you always talking about the military when you never have a clue what you are talking about? And about those sign on bonuses, that is bogus now. They haven't done that in a very long time. Now why don't you talk something you know and shut up about the military. Cause you are obviously in the dark!

Okay. You and I totally agree here.
The only thing that you and I disagree on in your previous post is that I have no admiration for Obama. I DO think the election was thrown the first time he ran. We'll never know what kind of president Romney would have made because he lost. Any judgement toward his ability is nothing more than speculation.
Obama had nothing in his background to show he was qualified for the job. It is STILL astounding that he got elected.
your last sentence is interesting and I have often wondered about that myself.these are the best explanations that I can come up with.(1)McCain made a poor choice for a running mate(palin).(2)Obama is the type of black that most whites find least offensive(half white and somewhat articulate.(3)his election would help rid our 'collective guilt' for slavery and show the rest of the world that we are not a bunch of hypocrites.there are more reasons but,as you know,i can not count higher than three so I will have to stop here.

Based on my own experiences. Some will look no further than your ID. It is a liability and destroys your credibility that you're unbiased to the facts. Most don't know anything about Gen. Lee other than he fought for the south and the south fought for slavery. I think it's race baiting if you're smart enough to understand what you're doing.

Your initial assumption and response to me was just another form of race baiting. As far as credibility goes, based on my own experiences, those who jump to conclusions as you did are biased and lacking in credibility.

On the positive side Obama is moving the economy to where all of we non-wealthy can have a little more piece of the pie. There is no help for hardcore repubs but it does make me happy to see them soooo upset!
We must pity Right Wing Republicans who actually work for a living, as they
suffer from a painful emotional illness called "Cognitive Dissonance."

Republicans believe:

- that government spending causes unemployment - but we can't cut the defense budget, because that would put people out of work;

- that the wealthy need the incentive of massive tax breaks to create jobs - but every tax break for the rich has always resulted in less employment, not more;

- while they make billions sucking dinosaur juice out of the ground in Texas- the Earth is only 6,000 years old;

- we don't need to regulate Wall Street investment bankers while we're still cleaning up from their financial Katrina;

- it's fine to use the bailout money to give themselves bonuses for having ruined our economy, otherwise they'd quit, and we'd lose their "brilliance";

- it's great Congress just passed a new farm bill that subsidizing corporate agribusiness billions - while decrying "welfare";

- even though there are 3,615 times more UFO sightings in America than there are cases of voter fraud - voter fraud is "rampant";

Imagine how their brains must hurt as they try to make these contradictory positions make sense.

As Mr. T would say "I pity the fool", who is placed in such an obviously hypocritical position.

God bless their tiny hearts.

Didn't read past the 1st paragraph of your post.
This belief that poor people on the public dole is this countries problems is a political tactic, nothing more. The numbers don't back that claim up at all. Our funding problems are and have always been social security and Medicare. The middle class is having fewer children because they just can't afford more, so the pool of money to pay for the baby boomers is just too small. If you believe Social Security is a savings program, itís not, it purely an insurance program. Itís really a Ponzi scheme with current workers funding the program.
As for the media not being believable, thatís nothing new. But it was taken to an entirely new level with Fox News Channel, backed and funded by the conservative wing of the Republican Party. MSNBC after a few years has tried to do the same, but they are not in the same league. People driving cars with bumper stickers saying ďdon't believe the main stream mediaĒ and then believe every twisted comment on FNC is what makes me sick. You can smell a FNC fanatic a mile away.
We ALL need to realize the current problems were created by my generation, baby boomers with lots of credit and little common sense. People playing the blame game and not even considering how we got in this situation and just how close the banking and auto industryís came to complete collapse. Always blaming politicians that WE elected to office. Georgia is a good example, Saxby in his last term attempted to work toward a compromise that might actually get government moving. And conservative wanted to hang him for his work. This is a majority rule country, and a minority unwilling to compromise is stupid and unproductive. Never has it been like this in the history of American. And things will not get better until we learn to work for the common good again. Or just wait until hispanics are the majority voting block in this country and let them fix the problem.
Sorry about the you make me sick comment, but thatís just how I feel about some people who rant on this site with little understand, a whole lot of hate and a "my way or no way attitude".
Just to give you a small amount of information. This country is supposed to be a Republic, not a Democracy. So therefore the majority is not supposed to rule. Where did you pick up the phrase, "work for the common good"? Sounds like the Democratic Socialist Party has been giving you your information.

Palin lost it for him, from the VERY moment he announced her as his running mate. Then, MSM made sure of it, as we watched it crumble before our very eyes.

Actually, it's a democratic representational republic, thank you.

And as for the "common good" - synonymous with the phrase "general welfare" - where have we heard that phrase.

Why, it's from those damn "Democratic Socialist" who drafted the Constitution of the United States of America:

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, PROMOTE THE GENERAL WELFARE, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

"Promote the general welfare" - Washington, Franklin, Hamilton, Madison and that gang of liberal Democrats.

Try to change everything. Words mean things. This country was founded as a Republic. Where did you come up with Democratic representational republic? Did you just make that up? What left leaning site died you pull that off of?
Also I see nowhere where it says "work for the common good", except in the communist websites.
This country has become a form of a democratic republic over the years as the state legislatures used to pick the representatives to be sent to Washington. Now the people vote on it and are not doing a very good job for themselves or their states. More and more people are being taught that this country is a democracy. It was never meant for this country to be ruled by a mob of people. That is a majority rules concept. If majority rules we need no laws as the majority will decide what will and should be done with each situation.That is what is happening now as people have started voting themselves handouts. Our republic has been changed into a form of a democratic country, where almost anything that the brainwashed majority thinks is o.k. is done.It will be the downfall of this country.
In my mind there us a lot of difference in the meaning working for the common good, than promoting general welfare for our defenses and secure blessings of liberty to OURSELVES.

"Promote the general welfare"

We know Right Wingers find it boring, but maybe they should put down their TV remotes and actually read the Constitution of the United States of America.

"Promote the general welfare"

Those clear unambiguous words of the Preamble to the Constitution,(enumerating the very reason the government was created), must burn like acid in the Right Wing brain.

According to very Preamble to the Constitution, our government exists to "promote the general welfare". That must make the Founding Fathers liberal Democrats,("Libtards "). Only socialists care about the common good. So, Washington, Hamilton, Franklin, and the rest of the signers were all "Libtards" because they created the government to pursue the common good.

As for me, if supporting the Constitution of the United States makes me a "Libtard" - I'm proud to be one.

A good post but If I may, I would like to add my two cents.
I feel that you are correct on most everything that you wrote. I do see Palin somewhat differently. McCain was giving absolutely no effort to win. He didn't attack Obama and let Obama walk all over him. McCain then asked Palin to be his VP. She accepted and begin a fierce campaign against Obama. The News Media went into its usual offensive assault against Obamas new challenger, which was Palin. Palin disputed many of Obamas statements and challenged him whenever possible. McCain just sat back doing nothing. Several weeks later Palin was told to shutup, back off and lay back and do what she was told to do by McCain and his staffers. I am not saying that she was all that qualified but her credentials were better than Obamas at that time. She at least had spunk and gave some life to an old farts bid to lose. McCain never had any thoughts that he was to win. He purposely threw that election and it was so obvious. Any 16 year old kid could have run a better campaign for class president then McCain did running for president.
Romney is another man and the same story. He didn't want the job and it showed. Romney came after Obama the first debate but after doing so good backed off as he almost screwed up and might have won the election by mistake.Just another rigged election for our first Black president as McCain nor Romney could get the conservative voters to vote for them. Probably because neither were conservatives. Bush was also a fairly liberal. He was just another RINO. Republicans will never win again as long as they keep running liberals and keep trying to act like Democrats. I think the Democrats have that field covered.
