Thirty years of Republican apostasy — a once grand party and it’s grand forward looking ideas, embraced the welfare state, the warfare state and the Wall Street-coddling bailout state — have crippled the engines of capitalism and buried us in debt. Mr. Ryan’s sonorous campaign rhetoric about shrinking Big Government and giving tax cuts to “job creators”(read: the top 2 percent) will do nothing to reverse the nation’s economic decline and arrest its fiscal collapse. Mr. Ryans ideas are strictly reactionary and not about prudent governing. Mr. Ryan professes to be a defense hawk, though the true conservatives of modern times — Calvin Coolidge, Herbert C. Hoover, Robert A. Taft, Dwight D. Eisenhower, even Gerald R. Ford — would have had no use for the neocon-conservative imperialism that the G.O.P. cobbled from policy salons run by Irving Kristol’s ex-Trotskyites three decades ago. These doctrines now saddle our bankrupt nation with a roughly $800 billion “defense” budget in a world where we have no advanced industrial state enemies and have been fired (appropriately so) as the global policeman. America needs a leader who can spell out what he or shy thinks a modern government should do or not do — and then how to pay for it. Knock on wood, the debate will push either Mr. Obama or Mr. Romney to do that. At the moment, neither seems to understand the central domestic challenge of the next presidency.
Who started the welfare state Frank??? Democrat(Roosevelt)around 1935..

The history of welfare in the U.S. started long before the government welfare programs we know were created. In the early days of the United States, the colonies imported the British Poor Laws. These laws made a distinction between those who were unable to work due to their age or physical health and those who were able-bodied but unemployed. The former group was assisted with cash or alternative forms of help from the government. The latter group was given public service employment in workhouses.

Throughout the 1800's welfare history continued when there were attempts to reform how the government dealt with the poor. Some changes tried to help the poor move to work rather than continuing to need assistance. Social casework, consisting of caseworkers visiting the poor and training them in morals and a work ethic was advocated by reformers in the 1880s and 1890s.

Prior to the Great Depression, the United States Congress supported various programs to assist the poor. One of these, a Civil War Pension Program was passed in 1862 and provided aid to Civil War Veterans and their families.

When the Great Depression hit, many families suffered. It is estimated that one-fourth of the labor force was unemployed during the worst part of the depression. With many families suffering financial difficulties, the government stepped in to solve the problem and that is where the history of welfare as we know it really began.

Under President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the Social Security Act was enacted in 1935. The act, which was amended in 1939, established a number of programs designed to provide aid to various segments of the population. Unemployment compensation and AFDC (originally Aid to Dependent Children) are two of the programs that still exist today.

Republicans are outrageously unpopular. A Gallup Poll registered a 10% approval rating, less than pornography, communism, and BP during the oil spill.

So why didn't the Mexican government know about this as they did when they worked in concert with Operation Wide Receiver? Currently, the Mexican government *claims* to not know anything about this. It appears they are quite angry with the US for not informing them.

So, Mr. Zambada-Niebla believes that the documentation that he requests will confirm that the weapons received by Sinaloa Cartel members and its leaders in Operation ‘Fast & Furious’ were provided under the agreement entered into between the United States government and [a Mexican lawyer]??? My guess is that Mexican lawyer if acting not on behalf of the Mexican government will end up hanging from the gallows.......if this guy is telling the truth.

And so he claims,
"he was working on behalf of the U.S. Department of Justice, Drug Enforcement Administration, FBI, and U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, court documents show."

But of course Holder and Obama knew nothing about this, right?

Yeah right!!

Of course I do, and have done so for a couple of decades now as have many others. The idea that the T-bags and the GOPers have found a new issue is laughable; the policies they are proposing are entirely reactionary and have nothing to do with intelligent, practical and prudent governing. I supported Reagan for one reason and one reason only, his effort to reduce Govt’t and look what he and his party of buffoons did ... it was in fact, the Reagan administration that pushed the federal Gov’t into mega-spending mode. Look at the numbers, between Reagan, Bush I and Bush II they pushed the national debt to an unprecedented $ 9 Trilllion. You and I are in agreement except for the reactionary wingnuz BS! America needs a leader who can spell out what he or shy thinks a modern government should do or not do — and then how to pay for it. Knock on wood, the debate will push either Mr. Obama or Mr. Romney to do that. At the moment, neither seems to understand the central domestic challenge of the next presidency.
Here are some very sobering thoughts from the Economist:

And with Obama the debt has risen $5 Trillion more as you know.

I think this is what the Romney/Ryan team is trying to make us understand, and what they are saying.

Using your words......." America needs a leader who can spell out what he or they think a modern government should do or not do _and then how to pay for it."

Is this not what they have been saying?

Anyway, this is what I've been hearing.

She's is a liar. She knows plenty......it's her job to know. Sidestepping the issue, playing dumb and pretending she hasn't looked into to something makes her look at stupid as she is. Tell me after all this time, she still needs time to look into it?

It wouldn't surprised me in the least if these corrupt people destroyed evidence. Isn't this the best way to say it doesn't exist?

I cannot offer an opinion," said Clinton.

I don't know," she continued.

"I cannot offer you any opinion on that," said Clinton. "I don't have the information or any analysis. I can only tell you the facts as we know them in the State Department."

She's responsible for knowing the facts and with all the time passed, she has had plenty of time to investigate and answer the questions.

Fraud!!!!

Mine, too, whitehair.

She knows everything. It's her job to know. But when they're cornered they plead that they haven't had the time or chance to review the situation. Or that they're not aware of something and must look into it further, bla, bla, bla.

Heard that from Nancy Pelosi and Janet Napolitano, too. Two other frauds!!!

First off-no one hates anyone.
Second-you missed the point of wanting to correct the laws and tax codes we have today,and so help me,none that are listed in the Congressional rolls will do it.They are too inbedded with the broken systems,collecting money from the lobbyists and special interests to want to change anything.
But,we have to obey and to use what the Congress and the leaders have given us.What do you do?

Attention all posters!

Beware a virus poseing as computer anti-virus software. Name Security Shield. Cant get past your startup program if you have real software in place, Internet Explorer and Programs. Looks like the real deal. everything you click on takes you to page to buy their nonexistant product, designed to empty bank accounts and credit cards. does fake scan as well and tells you that your computer is under viral attack and infected with all sorts of things. Easy to fix, once you figure out how. Google steps to remove "Security Shield Virus" and print them. in case you need them. reseting computer to an earlier time will not work. I reset my startup program through several trials and errors. I think it is relatively new and allmost fell for it! It asks to many personal questions in addition to the normal ones, date of birth, home address, home phone number,ect. this is not a joke nor am I trying to misslead anyone, figureing out how to fix it on my own is why i've not posted in two day's!!!! I am trying to figure out where it came from? It is possiable,from a posted link from this site? be careful.
