Obama dares Ohio State graduates 'to be better'

May 5, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: ClickOnDetroit

President Obama told graduates Sunday that "the institutions that give structure to our society have at times betrayed your trust" but called on young people to take a more active role in the political process as part of the solution.

Pretty much what I thought. "I'll help you - to a point, then you're on your own."

Like I said. You and personal responsibility aren't friends. Read the give a fish, teach to fish saying.... then read it again. Yes, we "throw them out" after a time, but not until they have a plan, and we help them with that. We work with the local crisis/mental health center and have their full support. It might not seem like much to you, since I'm not throwing five figures of cash at every problem that comes down the pike, but it's a pretty big deal to those we help... people who've had their whole lives turned upside-down and fall through society's cracks (don't qualify for government help) for one reason or other. We're one of about fifty families who take in battered women, and one of less than twenty who'll take their kids too. We make a huge difference in these peoples' lives, for the cost of a couple spare bedrooms and a little food.

[QUOTE] Sickening. I'm quite certain I've done more than my share to help others and I have given when I didn't have a whole lot to give. You'd rather kick people while they're down and make sure they stay on the street. How much have I given of myself out of my comfort zone?
Comfort zone? What? Did you break a nail or something? You're talking to someone who has had to eat off the land or out of dumpsters... and you want to talk about comfort zones...
More than you'll know. I'm fortunate to have what I have and I've worked hard for it. I also know that I had a great family who helped me and friends who were willing to lend a couch if I needed one from time to time. Now that I've achieved a relative level of success, I make damn sure to pay it forward. That's what people should do. Buying groceries for someone who can't afford them or volunteering to watch a woman's child while she goes to night classes isn't giving them perks - it's helping them become better, more successful people. I don't expect you to understand that concept. You're too worried about yourself.
Well that's the thing. You might think so, but I'm not, at least not too much. Since I've had to scrounge for a lot of my life, I'm kinda "not unused" to it, so even a little bit of "not having to scrounge" is a great gift to me and I share my bounty. Always have... Always will... You can't take it with you, you know.

<quoted text>Dante, you would be wise take the comments of "hilarious" for the brain-dead babblings they are. I've been crossing verbal swords with this teabagging sock puppet, for my amusement. But I grow weary of his feeble retorts, and will soon be rid of him.

Actually I shouldn't be so sure "hilarious" is a male. At first I thought, well, women are not that dumb. But then Sarah Palin came to mind. So now I'm not certain.

President Boehner to you chump.

after the felons Obama, Biden, and Clinton are jailed for manslaughter, and President Boehner fines all network television with exception to Fox, for collusion to cover up, so a criminal could be re-elected.

I would see a trillion dollar fine per network as just fine. After the government bleeds them dry well short of their fine, the broadcasting license can be canceled.

Tiny bubbles will be the memory of your failed and jailed Gods, who defiantly are not smarter than a 5th grader.

All I see is a bunch of people arguing over something Im either not interested in or I really don't care, the fights here I must say are fun to watch but I see so much hate. You remember the days when you pissed off people for the fun of it, not because you are passionate about something? Ahh those were the days

Not one American lost their life in any of those attacks. In Benghazi they tested the waters a few days beforehand. Remember the hole in the perimeter wall? When repeated calls for additional reinforcements go unanswered then you have place blame on those who ignored such pleas.

yes, topix has about run its course, it'll probably go the way of yahoo chat rooms....one thing it did identify though, was the hatred that the libs have for their home. Who would have thought that so soon after 9/11, they would elect a muslim friendly political rookie, with a muslim middle name?

Yes, inbred, these frightwing goons who spout their propaganda of lies, hatred and disrespect about our country and president are feeding successfully into those who hate our country and home.

Sshhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, that rookie with the unusual middle name that sounds more intelligent than inbred and genius (now that's an oxymoron) has been voted in for a second term! LOLL

Good grief, when will you stop projecting your pathologies on Topix? I didn't think people actually measured their 'intellect' based on a their prolific postings of juvenile dribble. I was wrong and you are here.

The fact this false president spoke to the graduating class at the largest university in the nation, is proof alone how far from the tree America has fallen.

And the fact that a wonderful football coach and man, was bushwhacked by the same idiots that allow the soon to be impeached President to speak to tomorrows leaders.

would not local business CEO's not make much better speakers, than a gang banging thug from Chicago soon to be fired for gross negligence, and possibly manslaughter?
