The laws are on books. However the Federal govt. either cannot or is not able to enforce the law. This leave the states to enforce the law. What is wrong with this pitcher. Wake up people, pay attention to what your reps. in the federal legisture and the state house want to do. Our rights not stolen all at once but are taken slowly one by one and a tiny a bit at time. We are liable to wake up one day with no rights at all.  (May 27, 2010 | post #7)

Why is Obama failing so miserably?

Looking around the world at other systems use the VAT to help prop up the health care. This is the reason why there is now a push to enact the VAT here in America. When you allow others to pay for anything that is a service to you then you give them the power to say what services you get. This is true no matter if it the governement or the company that you work for. You want true cuts in any service then you must make to where YOU choose what type of service it is that you are paying for. This is true even in health care. Get governmnet and employeers out of proviiding health care and have people go out and shop for the level of care that they want, allow health care companies to compete in a truly open market and health care for millions will come down. We do not alow the govnernmnet or any one else to dictate that we must buy any other service Why in the world are we going to alow the governmnet to dictate the type and amount of health insurance that we buy?  (Apr 9, 2010 | post #5939)

No get out of jail free card?

Not a reason for the assault however when you pay in fake money what do you expect. Everyone should be arrested and charged.  (Mar 9, 2010 | post #1)

Can't vote them all out. The ones in power do not remember where the light switch is. and the new ones would not be able to find it to turn it back on. LOL.  (Mar 4, 2010 | post #2218)

Bunning refuses to back down

I never said that I am self made man. I have received help from many. First and fore most my parents and family. Friends and employeers who saw something in me. I have however had to reinvent myself a number of times and learn to mover on from job to job and even career to career. I am currently an out of work OTR truck driver. I am not able to go back OTR at this time because of family illness. I will more than likely completely change career again. As for SS yes I will take my SS payments just like everyone else I know. I have paid into for many years. I though also have streams of income and not wholely depend on SS. I also tell others who are younger than I am that even though SS will be there for me in some form that it may not be there for them. So that they should start up IRA's and 401's so that they will have somethng in their old age. It is a sad fact that when SS was started over 16 people paid into what it took for one person. With longer lives and more and more paid out of SS that has gone down to about five people now pay in for one person. Evern that is expected to go down to three. Unless the age for retirement is raised or income is lowered on SS it is in for some rough times ahead and our children and grandchildren will not want to pay the taxes to support it. When people realize that they can vote themselves entitlements and that government will support them they also are voteing for government to tale over their lvies and make decions for them. A GOVERNMENT BIG ENOUGH GIVE YOU EVERTHING IS BIG ENOUGH TO TAKE AWAY EVERYTHING.  (Mar 2, 2010 | post #290)

We as a nation must stop demanding ENTITLEMNETS the Consitution and Deceration of Indepence say that we have the right to LIFE, LIBERITY, and the PRUSIUT of happiness. I do see where it says we have the right to health insurnsce, the right to old age penions, the right to live off others beause we are disabled, or the right to buy a house that is to big or one that we can not afford because of subprime loans. My rights are to be able to go out and succede to my own my ableities. Not to live off your or any one elses hard work.  (Mar 2, 2010 | post #247)

I agree. I would however like to see that money turned back to the people by way cutting the deficet. We must get government to stop sending any money that it does not have and pay the American people back the money that the government has borrowed. Government CAN NOT create jobs. Get government out of the way and let the PRIVATE sector go to work and new jobs will be created.  (Mar 2, 2010 | post #243)

Then there are those of us who get nothing when they lose jobs. No unemployment or any other help. I have no symathy with those who get a free ride compain when it is not extended. When are those of us who fight with the system get nothing.  (Mar 2, 2010 | post #239)

Obama picks Sotomayor for Supreme Court

Here it is the begining of March and so far that is what has happened. She has not made any earth shattering decions. Justice Stevens may leave the bench at the end of this term along with Gensberg. These appointmnets would have more impact in the future than Sotomayors appointmnet. However as long as liberal Presindents appoint liberal jutices and conervetive Presidents appoint conervitve justices the balance will be about the same as it is now.  (Mar 2, 2010 | post #458)

We have had pay as you go passed the past. However both sides have always found a way around it. Thomas Jefferson way back when said that no bill that spent money shoud be passed until Congress had the money to pay for it either by getting the people to pay higher taxes or cut spending on other programs. It is over 200 years later and we still are fighting about it. Lets get real and make the government survie like any faimiy or bussiness in this country. True a lot of entitlements would be stopped but then people would become more self relient. Take care and be safe out there.  (Mar 2, 2010 | post #222)

I take it that you would have rather had eight years Al Gore and letting the terrorist attacking with no response. Cap and trade limits. Industray and personal limits on what carbon limits imposed on us. The attacks on Sept 11 th were an act of war not the act of some spoiled rich malconents. What would your have done if you had been the one to respond?  (Feb 26, 2010 | post #2068)

Free speech wasn't meant for this

I did not say that I either agreed with or not with Scott Roeder or Dr. Tiller. I was only calling to fact that this thread had to do with free speech and what was said by Scott Roeder not DUI's or the right to drive drunk or not. As far as I am conerned this whole thread has been wasted on wether or not there should be free speech in this country. What a shame.  (Feb 25, 2010 | post #46)

The above may be true but what happens when government fails and goes bankraupt. Who pays when there is no more money and government can no longer keep its promise. California is on the brink of finding what happens in that case. The American people should watch and learn what is happening in California. People who do not pay attenion to history not ony repeat the same mistakes they will make even bigger ones.  (Feb 23, 2010 | post #1975)
