Do you often find yourself having to remember to breathe? Doe sit hurt terribly when a logical thought enters your head? Like most on your side, I suspect you voted for Obama simply because of his color, and to this day, you remain so enamored as to not be able to admit when you have made a mistake. Riddle me this- how perturbed are you going to be when a republican president is handed all of the power and authority you and your ilk seem to be willing to hand to the dictator that Obama has become? Most of us would not care if it was a repub, or a dem in the seat. We don't want to hand that kind of power to ANY president. It's why our constitution was designed the way it was designed. And fortunately, George Washington set the precedent for how a president is to act- though he was offered a monarchy, he and his kind gave us a republic- now the only question is if we can keep it. When the government fears the people there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. Thomas Jefferson said that.
Please tell us when you are prepared to give up your AC, your heat, and your running water. Or, how about that plastic water bottle you carry? Or, maybe even the vehicle you drive? Perhaps you'd like to go back to living in a cave, and scratching for survival. I think you need to take a cold hard look at where most of your comfort is derived, and realize how uncomfortable you would be without fossil fuels in your life. Or, perhaps you are too uneducated to understand from when comes those conveniences that we engineers have put into your hands? You have a very simple minded approach to trying to understand just what happens in the background before you can simply flip a switch, dial a knob or turn a key. I am prepared to have a rational discussion when you are prepared to give up all these things we have done to make you comfortable. Until then take the next opportunity to simply shut up.
My mind bounces between believing Obama is a total idiot- lazy, listless, and out of touch and being controlled by the likes of Soros- and believing his is actually doing this on purpose. The point is that either is inexcusable, and makes him a lousy example of a president. He has been fond of repeating that old Marxist saying "to whom much is given, much is expected". Well, he was given the most powerful position on the planet, and I expect a lot more.
America would love to embrace an entrepreneurial revival, However, such a revival has been deemed illegal by a slew of regulations that prevent ANYBODY from actually innovating and making something new. And if somebody slips up and does so, we have a slew of lawyers waiting to sue their butts off for being so bold as to cause us to strain our necks looking their direction.
Wow- And here, I've just always been appalled by Barney Frank. In addition, I've been appalled by a voting block who would send such a worthless POS to congress term after term.

Democrats' Impeachment Fixation

this is exactly ho9w I feel. there should be NO consideration of the political outcome, only what is right for America. I grow weary of politicians who couch their every move on how it will be interpreted, and what it will mean to their political futures. We need to kick all of the politicians out and elect some representatives instead. Perhaps we should try for some ordinary citizens who do not have law degrees to start with?

The mistake made by the republicans in the infamous "government shutdown" was not sticking to their guns- instead they folded with the winning hand. Where is Newt Gingrich when you need him? It is not Obama's popularity or his legacy we should be worried about increasing, it is the rule of law, and what is right in our government. I pray that the republicans are not letting this ruse by Obama and his cronies scare them out of doing what is right. Impeachment may be the ONLY thing left that will derail the Obama agenda. Otherwise, as in the case of Woodrow Wilson, we are in for another 100 years of recovering from his actions. Come on you whining republicans you need to do what is right no matter what the political fallout. Yes- fall on your sword to save our country. It's what we elect you to do. Yes, you may put some Dems back in power, but the next ones will think twice about bypassing our constitution. RIGHT IS RIGHT!

Brit Hume: GOP Won't Impeach Obama

So, now that they have been double-dog-dared, the republicans a running away from what every person n the US knows is the right thing to do. Once again- as in the government funding debacle- they show the yellow stipe that only politicians have running down their back. We need to eject these politicians and elect some representatives!
I find it hard to believe that any Democrat would consider ceding to a Republican president the type of authority they seem to have ceded to Obama. I hope their voices will not remain silent as we endeavor to remove from this office- this position- not just this man- power that was not granted him by the constitution.
Our original immigration laws (meant to be enforced) were put in place to balance out the flow of immigrants versus time, and regulate the effect such flow had on our economy, including jobs and welfare systems. Ignoring that policy simply puts the whole system into turmoil. I suspect that even if we put in place a "comprehensive" reform, people would find things they did not like about it, and circumvent it just the same. Anything for an opportunity to live in the USA.
I must admit that I never had a desire to own an AR15 until they spoke of the possibility of banning them. Now own one, and don't really like it all that much, but I will keep it as long as it is a source of contention. I mean, it's fun to shoot, but not nearly as fun as say an old Lugar, or a lever-action 30-30.
