And they found who did it, but instead went to war with Iraq. And declared victory in 2003 Then they did go into Afghanistan. Then Bush decided he "didn't spend much time thinking about bin Laden. And 5,000 Americans died and who knows how many innocent Iraqi and Afghanistan civilians. Then Obama said during his campaign that if he found where bin Laden was, he'd get him. Which he did . But yeah, Bush sounded touch on 9/11 and all of the American people were behind him. But that united patriotism seemed to fade when Obama was elected twice.

Bye-Bye Burger King: High Taxes to Blame

I'm not an economist and really know nothing about the difference in tax rates among countries. But, I did find out that the corporate tax rate has been 35% since 1986. The Republicans have the House and only Congress can change tax policy. Why not put together a bill/proposal that would address the problem. Obama can do Executive Action, but it is the job of the Congress to change the tax code. Although so many US based companies actually pay virtually no taxes that I suspect no politician really wants this change
When your party is seriously mentioning Perry, you know you're scraping the bottom of the barrel. He spoke in Des Moines a day or so ago and when he came off the stage, an organizer thanked him. Perry said and this is an exact quote "Thank you. I'm awesome" Seriously......
Families move around the country all the time and schools adjust. A total of 4,700 kids in the entire state of Texas, which has 5,000,000 school age students as of the last census should not be a problem. Do the math; I think it's 1/10th of 1% right?

why not give the name of the mall so they can tell their side of the story?
I'm an atheist and give very generously too many charities. But now not to religious ones.
Only Jesus? Jews, Hindu's, Buddhists don't give to others? Mormons give only to their own church, which only gives freely to other Mormons, Catholics and Evangelicals build really nice churches. Jewish Americans are the most generous givers to charities that provide basic services to others of any falth. Look it up.
Fine with me. Do you want to help people or are you interested in turning them to your religion? Are you all incapable of offering help with the promise you won't proselytize? If now, you really don't care about helping others. It's all about you.
Women graduation from college make less than a man when taking the exact same job. When women pay for their own health care plan with their employer, said employer can decline to provide contraceptives, a legal prescription given a woman by her doctor. Total opposition to family planning, to include abortion. Even for rape, incest, etc. You gotta keep that baby from that stranger who raped you in a back alley. Childbearing rearing is not "sacred" . It is not a "revered state associated with holiness. If the GOP believes it to be sacred, maybe they could pass a bill that mandates paid maternity leave. The USA is the only industrialized country without paid parental leave. So you all love children in theory, but not in practice. That goes along with your hatred of food stamps, supplemental milk for babies, Head Start, mandatory kindergarten and pre-K, etc. Love 'em only until their born, then it's all on Mom.
