So are you saying it is better to be living in a time when more than twice as many African-Americans are killed by other African-Americans each year as were lynched in 86 years? Judeo-Christian values do not endorse murder, and you embarrass yourself with such statements.

But his "prowess" is limited. Some people are incredible musicians, some amazing authors, etc. Einstein said something aong the lines of every man is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will be considered a failure. Obama is gifted in manipulation, but seems to have difficulty in remembering that with technology, there are records of the conflicting statements he makes. He does not understand capitalism, and projects his dependence on others for his achievements onto others.

I didn't feel Mona was opposed to women distinguishing herself in a male-dominated field, but to putting the emphasis on the gender rather than the accomplishment. As a mechanical engineer I would be offended if I were praised for being a woman, rather than for my contributions toward the projects.

While he should have said an increase of 110%, or that the cost has more than doubled, at least he wasn't rude about it.

And could we make it mandatory that in order to be on welfare/other subsidy programs that if you are older than 19 you must have at least a high school diploma? That would decrease motivation to drop out, and if teachers would require students to actually earn passing grades before passing them, it would be a win-win situation.

in http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/federal_debt_chart.html the 2012 Federal debt (not deficit) exceeded the GDP. We are fortunate interest rates are as low as they are, we'll be in big trouble if they rise to relatively moderate levels. I think that injection of money into the economy by printing unbacked money lessens the value of our income, making everything more costly, though it cheapens the value of the debt bonds (cheating the buyer of the bond, who might decide he should cash it in before it is worth even less)
And than the companies become dinosaurs because they do not own their own future.
The explosion of debt has not been because of roads, space program, stc., but largely because of entitlement spending. You set up a straw man that you could easily knock down. Many companies cut back on their own research spending when the government started handing out contracts for wide ranging projects. And too often, as in bureacracies, the objective eventually becomes continuation rather than problem solving.
