I think it is pathetic, they don't know who the first President was, or the Vice Presidents name,Secretary of Defense, and other questions when asked but yet they get to vote and now look at the mess we are in.You should have to score so high on a test to vote.

There is relevant wisdom to be mined from the Constitution on the issue. Our founding fathers referenced the age of 26 as the earliest age for a person representing citizenry in government.

The 26th Amendment to the Constitution has shown itself the silliest, most harmful distortion of our electoral process. It should be repealed and replaced with one allowing voting only at the age of 26, after the human brain has stabilized physically. There should be exceptions only for younger persons actually in uniform serving the nation in the armed forces.

You wouldn't know culture if it smacked you in the face . Geoffrey Beene , Chaps , LL Bean . All Made in Guatamala , Thailand , Indonesia. Obama nor Romney isn't bringing these jobs back . It's the amerikan way . If you can't make a profit we'll go somewhere where we can.

Keep a needle and thread handy to sew all the seams and buttons that fall off or open up in the first washing . They both belong in the jungle where the make this crap.
