Any other tips?
I sure you can give a lot of tips on how to avoid becoming a washout
Yes your favorite is weak and exhibits nothing resembling American Exceptionalism , something the strong of America believe in. We will free you whatever the cost.

That's exactly why strong leadership and the VOA has to be heard, we cannot suffer being lead by weak minded people who have not the authority to take command and be our leader.

Funny how the tea baggers can't ever attack what I say, they have to invent something I did not say and attack that.
If you want to compare apples to apples, darling, then compare the records of Christians to Muslims and Muslims to Jews, and Jews to Christians.
You don't get to pick and choose pieces of the records.
Get teabagged often?

You have a problem with the facts, Fatty?
When we identify Romney as the draft dodger that he is, yes, I think it is interesting to note that no one in his family as served this country.
It would enter in the decision when making statements endorsing going to war when one has no family experience, yes: as it may have entered Bush's thought process when he sent thousands of Americans to their deaths when trying to get a leg up in the 2004 election, knowing his daughters were not going to be in harm's way.
Everything you say even if true , is irrelevant to the fact he is the best leader we have to put in office now.
Obama is a coward and exhibits no strong leadership. Has no competent void of strategy and has no ultimate plan.
True leadership does never say ugh duh ugh ugh.
Romney had Obama on the ropes saying ugh duh ugh ugh.
Our leader has risen and it isn't Obama!
Obama is a world renowned chimp-monk.

Romney is a draft dodger.

He demonstrated for the war and for the draft and when his number came up: he got daddy to write him a prescription to run away.

Romney won't even post his taxes online.

Take a clue from Romney: grab your bags and run away to France.

Romney has had five positions on a woman's right to choice.

So far...

If the polls get close, he' have another, he needs some votes from women.

Your leader rose eight times so far this year, starting with Palin, working your way through Bachmann, GingRICH, Perry, Cain, Perry and Frothy Rick. some twice, and a couple more almost rans but not quite.

Try to think of it this way: Just because you have a right to pick your nose in a public, does not mean it is appropriate.
Getting head in a public restroom is inappropriate too, but nobody called you on it, did they?

The consequences of that act were benign though.

"Rational" responsible adults take care of themselves. SSI is something rational responsible adults have paid into for their working lives and 401Ks and IRAs pay for the the nicer things that SSI doesn't cover.
Children grow up and pay their own way.
There are occasions in many "rational" responsible adults lives where temporary circumstances they have no control over make it impossible to cover needs and that is what government is for.
Earth.

I like the idea of giving people a "hand up, not a hand out" to quote our President. A variation on the 'give a man a fish / teach a man to fish' thing ... sounds good on paper. That's not what we're doing. That's not what we're going to do ... whoever is President. People are not encouraged to become productive members of society in the current "plan". They are rewarded for being idle and having more babies when they need a raise. It's a self defeating, self consuming, non-sustainable program and the only one's served are those whose ultimate goal is the dissolution of the Great Society and seeing the USA knocked down to Third World status.
