Read my reply to NTR. It fits just as well here. The next time you two want to double dog me, have your facts straight and don't twist or mischaracterize my position. I just did not think you or her required it to be dumbed down to what has been obvious to others that have been part of the discussion. Unlike you, we come to an agreement and move on to the next topic. We don't carry on by knit picking everything and we are not letting articles and videos do our thinking or talking. Most of all, we [from both sides] are able to communicate and discuss without the sarcasm or insults. Too bad you can't say the same thing.
This is really simple...which is why I thought you might get it without the use of flash cards to get the point across.

You claimed that the government only creates government jobs. You were wrong.

I have a friend who owns a company that has the contract to feed service members at a local training facility. His company has contracts and does business in the private sector too, but without that government contract and that government spending he would be forced to do away with half his workforce.

Those are real Americans working real jobs for a private company, but those jobs depend on government spending.

Still not clear to you? How about this...

How many pencils, pens, paper products and so forth does the government purchase each and every day?

That spending creates jobs in the private sector.

Want to build a new aircraft, missile system or tank? The companies that get those contracts create tens of thousands of jobs.

Getting it yet?

Like I said earlier, I think we can both agree that the government should not be the primary source of job creation, but when you insist that the government doesn't create private sector jobs you are simply displaying your own ignorance about how the real world works.

Their bank accounts really need to be defunded as well as paid back to the tax payers by means of depositing it all into social security for starters. They also need to have their wages decreased significantly to were it was intended to be when it was originally set up in the beginning.
They did not get paid. In the beginning it was an honorary position. They met once or twice a year, or as needed, and only expenses were repaid. This went on for more than 100 years. Most in Congress spent only 2 terms. Only with the "progressive movement" did they decide to pay themselves and make a profession out of it.

They are a very dangerous terrorist group and not a group to take lightly. Obama underestimated their power and how dangerous they are. On the same note, Americans wanted our troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan. Obama did get them out Iraq. I do not think we can now take them out of Afghanistan now. We can pass judgement back and forth but I would just soon we exercise that energy of and come up with an effective plan to deal with it. We have been threatened and put on notice. I do not doubt war is coming to America. Now is not the time to be poking at each other. We need to start planning and be prepared to act. This is not going away unless it can be stopped. Take them all out (Isis, Al Qaeda, Hamas, etc).
Many have said Oblamer's weakness has emboldened them, makes sense to me

We also have the corrupt wealthy that we can't turn a blind eye to. Unfortunately by clumping all the wealthy together, it makes it difficult to deal with the corruption. Until that distinction is made it will be business as usual with no end in sight. Let's not punish the wealthy that do play by the rules within the laws of doing so. On the same note, we will always have corruption no matter how much disdain there is towards them. We need lobbyists out of our government for starters.

Man Killed by Off-Duty Officer in Dallas
http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/Man-Dies-In-...
Collette Flanagan, with Mothers Against Police Brutality, said the shooting should not have happened.
"Just because he has an arrest record, his life doesn't belong to the Dallas Police Department," she said.
Flanagan's son, Clinton Allen, was killed in a March 2013 Dallas police-involved shooting.
Flanagan believes too many people die at the hands of Dallas police, and she supports calls for a U.S. Justice Department investigation of those cases.
"We have a really bad problem in Dallas," Flanagan said.
In response to complaints and lawsuits, Dallas Police Chief David Brown revised policy and training standards for use of force in January.
I guess you've never been to Dallas.

If the Fancy Farm picnic is the lowdown, GR, everybody and their grandmother/grandfather who reads the news in the entire state has been provided the lowdown. You actually can do better than that if you infiltrate the right circles in politics. No, I'm not implying I have, but I'm positive you don't have a clue.
I just provided you a little backgrounder on Alison Lundergan Grimes' family that you "think" you know something about. She stands on her own merits as an attorney who graduated cum laude from American University Washington College of Law, working as an associate at Stoll Keenon Ogden and serving as Kentucky Secretary of State. I don't bark orders. That's something you try to do, and when anybody tells you to KTA that they're independent and not under your thumb, you freak out entirely. You're some kind of mentally compromised control freak. < end >

You seemed to be accusing or assuming something. I get it now.
Here is what you were after X-Man? Like I said I don't post on here very often so I know the timeframe. Your pal is accusing me of being GR. Sorry pal but you and NTPR will have to p!$$ on another tree.
Apparently anyone who does not agree with them are "GR" or socks of his. A whole new level of paranoia in one place. Interesting.

<quoted text>I can't help but have a problem with posts that attribute to the President situations over which he cannot dictate. He is not a dictator and is subject to the legislation that is introduced in Congress, passed by both houses and placed on his desk for signature. He seldom even has the chance to veto legislation that conflicts with his election promises because so little legislation has been placed on his desk to sign. He is frequently blamed for the gridlock in Congress which is primarily a function of the Republican led House where nothing he has recommended has been deemed acceptable.
Now, what specific ideologies do you object to about this President that are not part of his promises leading up to his re-election? I did not agree with everything he said he wanted to do, but I also certainly didn't want to follow the Republican plan for the country, and neither did the majority of American voters.
Prior to Obama's first election, I was a registered Republican of long standing. I voted for Bush the first and W. not once but twice. Almost immediately after I voted for W. the second time, I deeply regretted my foolishness. I abhor the direction we have been headed under Republican rule which is personally intrusive, panders to the wealthy elite Oligarchy and is totally indifferent to the plight of America's working classes whose income is derived from wages and salary. I'm currently a registered Independent, but I'm waivering toward registering again - as a Democrat. Of course, many of you here have been responsible for my further estrangement from all things "Republican". Moderate Republicans are excoriated and denigrated here. They, like America's middle class, are a dying breed. I find that to be very sad because I believe a two party system works best. Most of the folks on the extreme right here dismiss polls summarily. You may be the exception.
Anyhow, specifically, what policies of Obama's upset you greatly, and what were you expecting him to do about intransigence in Congress? Did you think he should forget about the promises he made when we elected him and surrender to Republican demands? Would that make you think more highly of the man and his principles?
"ntr"
You are a troll.Why do you not be honest for a change? The House has passed more than 300 bills that hairless reed of the Senate will not allow a vote on. If they are so bad why will hairless not permit a vote? Could it be he is afraid some of the bills might pass forcing the boy president nobama to veto the? For you cooperation between the congress and the president is a one way street, congress should do the presidents biding and nobama should completely ignore anything that comes from congress.

The voter-fraud problem that plainly doesn’t exist
http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/the-v...
Just so we’re clear, Republican policymakers have launched a national campaign, imposing the most severe voting restrictions since the Jim Crow era, all the while characterizing voter fraud as a national scourge that can only be addressed through voter-ID laws.

Except the only genuine fraud here has been the GOP argument.

That's what happens when you have "ten fingers" and half a brain and that small half is prone to sexism.
