Politicians! You can't trust a damned one of them.

Consider this: We know that Hamas in the Gaza strip is using children as protection for their stash of missiles when they put them in those children's schools and use the deaths of those children as propaganda. To put it simply, they are using children for their own purposes. How is that different from what Obama is doing on our southern border?

If you really want to change things have your state legislature pass a bill that requires every taxpayer in the state to pay their federal taxes to the state coffers. The state could then forward the amount they deemed necessary for the feds to run what the constitution says they can run. If this was done by at least 25% of the states the feds would be hamstrung into confining themselves to their constitutional assigned duties and nothing more. The fed would be unable to force the states into knuckling under they way they did with highway funds and educational funds. I would bet you that the federal payroll would shrink tremendously and the IRS would be laying off droves of agents.

There is an election coming up. If the majority of voters voted for the person running against the incumbent you would see DC change in one hell of a hurry. The new guy would get the message and so would the politicians left in their seats.

What, and vote for republicans? They are just as happy with big government as the dems are. The last time they were in power it cost you and me a ton of money. If you want to change things vote for the other guy. THAT will send a message and every politician will be quaking in his or her boots. Things will change then.
There are a lot of nyt best sellers that I wouldn't think are fare for children nor for adults. Just because thee can hawk a ton of books does not an author make. And the reason you shouldn't is because it is peddling porn to children. I would think that you, supposedly being an adult, would know that without someone having to explain it to you.
J, you ask: "does it help 19 Minutes's case that the extramarital sex has horrible consequences for both involved? That it would be impossible to read the book and think Piccault was recommending premarital sex?" I, therefore, have to ask, could the scene not have been couched in less offensive terms? Was it not incumbent upon the author, if this book was made for your impressionable children, to generalize rather than to make it explicit? Decorum. You might want to look up that word.
Suppose that would mean anything to those who voted for him (over and over again)? Suppose that would mean anything to those who engineered his election? No, there are smart liberals [some of whom are elected (with the exception of this and a few other dupes) and/or those running campaigns and the bureaucracy] who use the rest of them (the mass of unwashed fools who really do believe in liberalism) to get themselves into positions of power. As long as the ones in power can reach into your pocket and give what they steal to those unwashed fools they will always be in power.
Her election merely proves that there are loads of liberals (read: fools) out there. She and they are on the same intellectual plane. She is the product of her environment. Seems to me, seeing what is coming out of colleges these days, that we, as a society, are sliding more and more toward her mindset. After all, we elected then re-elected what we have in the white house didn't we?
