Dear Bobby Jindal,
Your attempt to wake up the party of stupid was a very noble jesture, and is the best advice for your declining party platform with the American public, however, it is my regret to inform you that it has fallen on deaf ears and simply not working. Evidence is available here for your review.
Yours truly,
2013
The Commucrats keep pumping up and quoting Jindal, if you want him in your party all you have to do is ask him to come on over.

And if you truly believed your rhetoric of "once born in America" line, then why so serious about socialism?
Every has the right to try or fail. As you eloquently point out, there are no absolutes, right? If you truly believed that then there wouldn't be any need for entitlements for the "economically challenged" folk because of their inability to manage their wealthy or money because that would be considered an absolution to their survival.
I do not see being on welfare as winning. Being on welfare is simply surviving.
Would it be more motivating for one to work if welfare did not exist? Probably, but note that in nations with no welfare, people do starve and live in horrible conditions. I just feel no one should live in such conditions. I know you have no empathy for these people and thus I get why you hate welfare. This understanding of you is not going to make me want to take welfare safety nets from the people. It is going to make my resolve for it stronger.
Again, being on welfare is not living the good life. It is barely surviving.

Dear Bobby Jindal,

I think you will need to give this Republican a personal call.

Thanks,

There were protests to a you tube video outside the embassy in Bengazi, so it was not unreasonable to assume the attackers motivation may have been the video. In case you have not noticed, the Muslims get pretty worked up over something like a cartoon or a video about Mohammed.
Why do you blame America first?

I just saw that on the news. I was going to write Bobby Jindal and asked him if the explosion outside the US Embassy was due to a you tube video.
Thought I'd ask while I was at it, what are the 1300 people in NC and Oregon going to do AGAIN, now that the unions have decided to close the plants for a while because of the weakening economy. Maybe he can explain why the American people are being told the economy is getting better and the last quarter GDP dropped and unemployment rose.

Well Duh Mike, it could be because Obama and Hillary went on the apology tour for a video made in the U.S. by an American. Guess we were under the false impression they knew what was going on since they ran out and owned the attack being because of America first.

Funny that you should mention a drop when there were 36 months of growth previous to that. How observant.

VP Joe Biden admits yesterday that new gun control laws won't work!
"Nothing we’re going to do is going to fundamentally alter or eliminate the possibility of another mass shooting or guarantee that we will bring gun deaths down to 1,000 a year from what it is now,” Biden told reporters Thursday afternoon after he spent over an hour lunching with Democratic senators at the Capitol.
If they're not going to work, as the FBI reported weeks ago, then why waste the time and money debating the issue?
Do you know what the word "fundamentally" means?
The laws in America are not to form a Utopia. They are to just help us improve. That is all we can do. You seem to expect government to fix all our ills, I do not. I do expect them to help if they can, you do not.
The laws they are talking about are not very restrictive, so it is reasonable to assume they are not going to stop the nuts. Our constitution prohibits absolute gun bans, so their is no way to make fundamental changes. I am not for absolute gun bans, because of the constitution and the understanding freedom has its safety risks we must bear.

Mike, I see both sides of this issue but is there a solution? I know people who admit they will not take a job because: I make more if "I draw", I'm gonna take the gov. for everything I can, or (this one is my fav,) I only work for cash 'cause I get a check. I SWEAR I have heard each and every one of these excuses. Lady came in the store a couple weeks ago bought about $200. in ammo and is on a list for 2 Glocks. Asked me if we "were hiring" said "I ask everyone, I have to to keep drawing". Could it be that finally people are abusing that system and it's out of hand?

Contractors, queer bait. Just like when you go take a physical for a job. Oops, I forgot. You don't have a real job. My bad, let me dumb it down for you.
When you work in the real world, they require accountability, part of that accountability is maintaining a fit workforce. No drugs and minimal health or safety risks to its personnel.
Yes, growing government was my words, as you are to stupid to understand your suggestion would just make government grow.
Nothing you said has anything to do with what we were discussing.
Your suggestion was tried and failed, yet you wish to expand the big government idea that is a proven failure. How stupid can you get?

The question is, does Biden, know what "fundamentally" means?:)

Thank you Arnold on me being observant. All good things must come to an end and 36 months of growth has hit the skids along with the rise in unemployment. I notice you didn't address that issue. Maybe you can write Bobby Jindal another letter and ask him why.

<quoted text>If you can not see the difference in the step up in terrorists threats then and now, put you head back in the sand. Ambassador Stevens told the State Dept. of a threat, he was ignored. Stevens and his team were in a "hot zone" that was the reason he was sent there, according to the Sec. of State, in front of Congress. Yet, your "team" ignored his warnings of a threat. I don't believe an Ambassador told President Bush squat. You know Mike, it's easy for you and I to be "armchair" quarterbacks here, I try not to do it on this issue because I knew someone who died on flight 93. I know her family and they were briefed extensively on that event. I don't believe any American wants to "sweep that under the rug" as you put it.
Bush was warned of 9/11. Do I blame Bush for 9/11? No. I am just showing the comparison between the attacks. You have yet to show my comparison is not valid.
Knowing someone who died in the attack does not make you correct.
I believe Bush failed and I believe Obama failed in preventing the attacks.
The difference I see is the massive difference in the number of people who died,health hazards caused, property damage done and the fact one was on the homeland.

Lu, they use their EBT cards to buy lottery tickets and scratch offs. This I have personally witnessed. I guess Mike's resolve is to make abuse of the system stronger. Gotta wonder why this country is going broke, we're buying guns and lottery tickets for those that won't/don't work. Geez, go figure.

So one month with less than good numbers means America has "hit the skids"? I wonder what you called the poor numbers in the Bush days as they took a massive downward spiral?
