That's not a real question. That's a Question that you made up. Why can't us republicans & Democrats agree on something instead of blaming each other?

No wonder we are in Debt. Everything is going up in price, nothing is cheap anymore & you all are blaming President Obama.

A real republican can't aggree with a communist even if that communist is calling themselves a democrat.

Again why do democrats steal?

Is the Tea Party Over?

The only factor more vital to the Tea Party’s success than Fox News is the financial backing of Charles and David Koch and the billionaire brothers are pulling their deep pocketed funding to the Tea Party movement. In an interview with Forbes, Charles Koch claimed that the brothers will spend the 2013 financing the fight against corporate welfare, something the Tea Party has never cared about after all corporations are people.

Fox News has dumped two of it's most extreme right wing pundits (Karl Rove, Dick Morris) the billionaire financiers (Koch Brothers) have abandoned the Tea Party movement leaves them left out to dry.

With the movement dying, maybe people that think roaming people that are starving, will not break into their home, and take what they have.

1. Will they unload their assualt rifles, and get some rest?

2. Live like Democrats, in a sensible manner?

Let's hear from the mentally disturbed!

Tell you what, when Europe has to deal with the fact that a quarter of its population is Third Worlders who hate the society they live in, and somehow fix this, I will listen to them.
Great, look at Canada, then.

The sad reality is that we have not increased our post-secondary matriculation rate and others have.

This has economic consequences.

You can blame it on the supposed individual choices of groups of people (that somehow never seem to include yourself), or you can start to consider what it takes to change that reality. It is largely a question of whether you prefer to fall back into mediocrity or continue to lead the world.

You know what leads to mediocrity? Hand outs and assistance and not forcing people to stand on their own. Whether it be over protective parents or governments.

I'm all for helping those down due to circumstances beyond their control for a bit, or those who are disabled and cannot work, but the welfare system has ruined this country and created 39% that do not support themselves without some type of assistance. It's an impossibility for the other 61% to finance them, massive government spending, government over-employment and send financial aid to countries that, for the most part, do not like us much.

The tune has stopped, it's time to pay the fiddler and all the libs can do is cry ' waa don't touch my entitlement.'

Nothing was averted last night. We are on our way to a credit downgrade, faltering market and greater financial crisis. And the inflation is going to be more crippling every month.

They didn't have much, but they had each other. They were billionaires in my way of looking at things.

The underclass person of today, especially the poorest, have far more than The Waltons could ever dream of having, and they have been utterly destroyed because they don't have the family structure and the love and warmth that only comes from FAMILY.

That is the root of our looming national bankruptcy ... one part socialism and liberals' denial of the human behavior element that practically always makes socialism unsustainable ... two parts destruction of the family.

Millions destroyed ... financial bankruptcy on the horizion ... and the libs own it.

You left out one other small difference--the land that they lived off of.

You might also consider the historic role of the federal government in agriculture.

I've gone into great detail about why communism wasn't sustainable, from the notion of taking assets from those most capable to shepherd and nurture them, to the notion of people not wanting to do any more than required because 1) they didn't benefit from the extra effort and 2) they didn't want to be considered suckers.

But the most destructive element you unleashed was by throwing out God and that nobody had any right to tell you that you weren't allowed to give in to your temptations. Be it sex, drugs, gambling, adultery, homosexuality ... your definition of "freedom" was to encourage people to engage in behavior that has ultimately destroyed them.

Engaging in the kind of sex you shouldn't engage in is no different than becoming addicted to drugs. That's why after you lefties started patting people on the heads and told them whitey has no right to judge you, the wheels fell off of society.

Hey Bob. You and I happen to share the same profession, and similar educational and cultural backgrounds (I know, you don't believe it but its true) but we happen to have very different opinions on this issue.

I have one simple question for you, and it is based upon what I do for a living.

When was the last time your work actually required that you physically visit the home of someone living on an income close to the poverty line, on either side of it?

The work I do requires that I do it quite frequently, but there are many variant areas of our profession, so I'm just wondering about you.

Hey, Duke. As mentioned before, I am a child of immigrants. I am well aware of what it is like to not have things both because I grew up in an environment where gratification was delayed because of something greater in mind.

I was joking around with another member of our esteemed profession, a woman with a background similar to mine. She wasn't amused with one of my off-color jokes and said that she grew up in a strict Catholic home (as did I).

All I am saying is that I come from people that grew up without much, came here from zero and with zero. But their values and the way they live were not part of the gutter, nor did they encourage their children to wallow in the gutter.

That is what is wrong with much of the underclass. People like YOU who ostensibly are trying to help them, but despite your good intentions have destroyed them.

I am saying I can show you poor people who don't live like the people you visit, and used America as a stepping stone to a better life.

It seems to me that they can learn more from me and my experiences than they can from what you're pushing, which is to make more excuses for basically their hedonistic behavior that keeps them where they are.

Not everybody is as smart as you and I. Not everybody has the inner drive, or parents who instilled that drive to become what we are. And as Wise American correctly points out, there is a sense of worthlessness some people have that they can't even conceive a better life for themselves.

THAT SAID, encouraging them or looking the other way when they engage in behavior that is destructive to EVERYBODY, especially them, solely because you guys want to stubbornly cling to your anti-religious dogma, is what holds them back.

I am where I am because of the generations that preceded me. I am the sum total of my paternal grandfather who came here to work in the steel mills, and used that to become one of the largest landowners in the village he is from. I am also the product of my maternal grandfather, who as I mentioned was a royal guardsman in his country and came here and ran a small business for 34 years with the rabble of society.

I am the product of their cultural and monetary help, family stability, and high level of values that were emphasized.

One generation helping the next ...

Never encouraged to drink, do drugs, or follow the crowd. Always encouraged to live a life of thrift, with traditional (strict) Catholic values (rarely went to church), and to put your kids on a pedestal.

That may not work for Americans, though a less strict version of this culture worked will in prior generations.

But the one thing I do know is that without family, you can't get ahead. I wouldn't have gotten ahead.

You what you have pushed on them have robbed them of family. That is how you robbed them of the ability to get ahead.

I have 50 years worth of statistics to prove my point.

Reader you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink. The same is true for education. If you even look at the most wealthy school districts in Ohio they still have students who don't graduate high school. If a student in Dublin or upper Arlington won't finish school and has every possible resource, then how can you force the child in inner city school district to graduate?

Ohio pumps some huge sums of money into its public education system yet gets beat in graduation rates by states that spend far less. More funding does not equate to better results always. It would be nice if it did. That would be any easy fix.

Our problem isn't a lack of education or even a lack of higher education. Our problem is our country does not value education. Why is that? Well I can tell you from my perspective it's insulting to work hard your entire life and spend over a decade in school then turn around and give a huge chunk of your income back in taxes and the other huge chunk goes back to student loan repayment. Meanwhile you see others with little to no education living the same life style with much less effort. I believe you refer to these folks as those with a job with a live able wage. As I've said before it would be awesome if we could pay someone 60k a year with awesome benefits to do something that a person with no education and minimal on the job training could do, but sorry it's not feasible. Well not without extreme inflation that is.

My theory is that this entire drive and focus on technology, from computers in the classroom to all the fancy technology only confuses kids and distracts them from the learning at hand. Computers have their good points, but at the end of the day, my thoughts are more focused and collected with an old-fashioned pad and pen.

Take reading, for example. For some reason, I read better when it's printed than I do on screen where I tend to skim. I think you spend more time getting distracted with what's going on with your computer, than with the subject matter.

Part of the reason schools aren't doing their job.

The Waltons didn't farm, Reader. They used their land for hunting and timber harvesting while running a sawmill.

Hey Bob.

I was simply asking whether your work has taken you into the home of a poor family lately. You never answered, but I'm gathering from your response that the answer to that question is "no".

I know you may find this hard to believe, but not everyone who is poor lives as you think they do, or lacks the values that you think they lack.

My work doesn't require me to "push" anything, and were I acting beyond the bounds of my authority from the Court, pushing some sort of agenda or religious dogma upon the people I visit, I would lose my job.

You really should get out of that office more often. There's a whole world out there that doesn't fit into the presupposed box you have constructed within the confines of your tightly closed mind.
