I liked the old paths, when Moms were at home.
Dads were at work. Brothers went into the army.
And sisters got married to actual men BEFORE having children!

Crime did not pay; Hard work did;
And people knew the difference.

Moms could cook; Dads would work;
Children would behave.

Husbands were loving; Wives were supportive;
And children were polite.

Women wore the jewelry; and Men wore the pants.

Women looked like ladies; men looked like gentlemen; and children looked decent.

People loved the truth, and hated a lie.

Cursing was wicked; drugs were for illness.

The flag was honored; America was beautiful; and God was welcome!

To be called an American was worth dying for;
To be called an American was worth living for;
To be called a traitor was a shame!
I Miss the Old Days...

I agree, but that took place when General Eisenhower was president and taxes on the rich were 91%.

Reagan through Obama started the meltdown and has gotten much worse on average Americans.

Can You Afford To Retire? Video / http://tinyurl.com/h8xdx
The baby boomer generation is headed for a shock as it hits retirement: many of them will be long on life expectancy but short on savings. The two main strategies for funding retirement -- lifetime pensions and 401(k)-style savings plans -- are in serious trouble. In "Can You Afford to Retire?" FRONTLINE correspondent Hedrick Smith ("Is Wal-Mart Good for America?") investigates this looming financial crisis and the outlook for middle-class Americans.(more)»

Let's see how long it takes him to remove your head because if you don't beleive in what he believes in then you are an enemy and must die...

Cut the national debt:
Military 20%, pensions and social security 23% and healthcare 22%! The interest paid on borrowed money is more 10% or $220 billion. Of course none of our politicians dare to touch these items or even whisper it. Especially the military part of it, as it employs hundreds of thousands of Americans in manufacturing, research and many other related activities that earn people a paycheck. It is famously referred to as the MIC or Military Industrial Complex! And then of course are the insane tax cuts supported by most republicans, seemingly intelligent people acting like friggen troglodytes!
There is no single policy passed by congress that has added more to the debt, or that is projected to add as much to the debt in the future, as the Bush tax cuts, passed in 2001 and 2003 and extended again in 2010. Yet republicans insist, with a straight face, that more tax cuts will end the current recession – what the f***?

There is a serious underlying problem that is rearing its ugly head year after year and the public is slowly catching on to it. When 0.1% percent of the population owns 99% of what can be owned (aka assets) in this great land of ours, there is something seriously wrong with our society and its government or its governing. And the whole picture looks even darker when it comes to income distribution which is lopsided in the extreme!

It did not fail either in the USSR nor in China! It takes time nothing else. It takes time to change a society. For instance the change of feudalism to capitalism is still not finished yet.

Exposed by itself looks like you may be on to something.....UNTIL you realize that the most common type of injury accident involving children are those that also involve motor vehicle collisions. According to the National Center for Statistics and Analysis (NCSA), nearly 250,000 children are injured every year in car accidents....and how many children are killed or injured by drugs each year? Gun injuries and deaths pale in comparison so why are you as dilligent in new laws and bans on drugs and cars??? Because like gun laws and bans, they ONLY work if people abide by them...
Yes of course, you are now reverting to the standard gun-nut-rhetoric, following your logic you might as well cite Life itself as the big killer - it kills 300,000 people every day.
Your half baked excuse is rather like desperately grabbing for straws.

A man armed with an old military rifle and a handgun shot and killed three women and wounded two men last night in a southern Swiss village, police said. Police shot and wounded the suspect after he threatened to also shoot officers who arrived at the scene in the village of Daillon, said a police chief. The gunman was then arrested. The chief said the suspect was using a military rifle that was once standard issue in the Swiss army during the first half of the 20th century.

A police rep said the shooter lived in Daillon, and the motive for the shooting was not clear. A prosecutor said the shooter—who was not identified—knew several of the victims, but "he was not known for making threats." He was unemployed and had been receiving psychiatric care since at least 2005, when he was first admitted to a psychiatric hospital, and was under the care of an agency that provides services and counseling to the disabled, she said. It wasn't immediately clear how the shooter obtained his weapons...

However I am sure it is clear to frankie, this nutcase did not murder these people, the guns he procured illegally did...

For you...What is a tectonic plate?
A tectonic plate (also called lithospheric plate) is a massive, irregularly shaped slab of solid rock, generally composed of both continental and oceanic lithosphere. Plate size can vary greatly, from a few hundred to thousands of kilometers across; the Pacific and Antarctic Plates are among the largest. Plate thickness also varies greatly, ranging from less than 15 km for young oceanic lithosphere to about 200 km or more for ancient continental lithosphere (for example, the interior parts of North and South America).

How do these massive slabs of solid rock float despite their tremendous weight? The answer lies in the composition of the rocks. Continental crust is composed of granitic rocks which are made up of relatively lightweight minerals such as quartz and feldspar. By contrast, oceanic crust is composed of basaltic rocks, which are much denser and heavier. The variations in plate thickness are nature's way of partly compensating for the imbalance in the weight and density of the two types of crust. Because continental rocks are much lighter, the crust under the continents is much thicker (as much as 100 km) whereas the crust under the oceans is generally only about 5 km thick. Like icebergs, only the tips of which are visible above water, continents have deep "roots" to support their elevations.

Most of the boundaries between individual plates cannot be seen, because they are hidden beneath the oceans. Yet oceanic plate boundaries can be mapped accurately from outer space by measurements from GEOSAT satellites. Earthquake and volcanic activity is concentrated near these boundaries. Tectonic plates probably developed very early in the Earth's 4.6-billion-year history, and they have been drifting about on the surface ever since-like slow-moving bumper cars repeatedly clustering together and then separating.

Like many features on the Earth's surface, plates change over time. Those composed partly or entirely of oceanic lithosphere can sink under another plate, usually a lighter, mostly continental plate, and eventually disappear completely. This process is happening now off the coast of Oregon and Washington. The small Juan de Fuca Plate, a remnant of the formerly much larger oceanic Farallon Plate, will someday be entirely consumed as it continues to sink beneath the North American Plate.

So hank, what do you think about the old adage that There are NO athiests in Foxholes?

A feel good story for you and francis...
Senator Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), who will return to Congress on Thursday one year after suffering a major stroke, said that he saw angels while recovering in the hospital last year.

In an interview with the Daily Herald published Wednesday, Kirk said that before he woke up from a medically induced coma, three angels appeared at the foot of his bed and asked if he wanted to come with them.

"No," Kirk said. "I'll hold off."

Kirk told the paper that he wasn't sure if the vision had been a dream or a near-death experience, but acknowledged that his stroke and subsequent recovery had impacted his faith.

"I would say that I definitely became much more religious," Kirk said. "They say there are no atheists in foxholes, and this stroke put me into a very deep foxhole. Yet, that feeling of faith sustained me, so I have no feelings of anger or regret."

The Republican senator is scheduled to arrive at the Capitol Thursday morning, in time for the opening of the 113th Congress. He will be greeted by Vice President Joe Biden, along with Sens. Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and other Senate colleagues. Kirk intends to walk up the steps of the Capitol without assistance.

In the Daily Herald interview, the 53-year-old Kirk said that he visualized the walk up the Capitol steps to help motivate him during physical therapy.

"I kept imagining going back to work and the irreducible physical amount of effort I had to put in," he said.

Awwwww, the life of an elitist congress person...back to work with ZERO medical bills and no obamacare paperwork to fill out...try going back to your job of tarring a roof after a massive stroke...
