What a surprise, when you stop paying people to not work, employment goes up. who would have thought? Wasn;t there a European study in the 1990's that came to the same conclusion? When people work they begin wanting lower taxes - bad for Dems. When they are paid not to work they want tax increases - good for Dems.

Not continuing to proceed down this road to ruin might be an imperitive for you and I but is it also an imperitive for those who profit from the unsustainable? Or those behind them and next in linne?
Republicans do believe in immigration reform just as they believed in it during Reagan's amnestry. What they don't believe is Democrat honesty, integrity, etc. because the evidence is before them. Why omnibus bill I ask - why not incremental change as a more prudent step in the repair? Democratic policy is to pander, to offer "fish" while the GOP offers fishing poles and instruction on use
U.S. used to produce 25% of the world's goods & services and they did that while consuming 20% of the world's energy but in Obama's world that was not a key fact. The key fact is that they are 2% of the world's population and their "fair share" demands an order of magnitude reduction in energy use. Seems to me that he has been pretty successful so far.

The article lists a number of administrative shortcomings and adverse federal activities followed by a summation of all of these as "ineptitude". Very kind but is this what it is? Ineptitude? 2008 campaign statement "I will fundamentally change this country if elected". Doesn't sound like ineptitude to me, sounds more like a lying, cheating racist bunch of anti American creeps who belong in jail at the very least.
Bad policy chasing more bad policy - isn't this a predicted phase on the road to dissolution? A return to the concept of private property including money and the labor it represents would put all these quacks out in the cold.
I'm sure its been polled just as the birth control issue and Sandra Fluff (sic) had been polled and it was found that there were votes in the lie - female votes. Speaks well for this half of the country's voters?

detriment of the rest of us and, once again, the country. This student of Alinski whose slogan is "there is only the fight" and is lauded by the present occupant of the White House as the most effective Secretary of State ever (taking time from his important work on his brackets).

But isn't that the issue, the psychology rather than the numbers?The "snout in the trough" rather than fiscal prudence? The politician coming to town with his truckload of hot water heaters to trade for votes? The crassness of this administration and the ignorance of the constituency, those who considered that voting for a black man was more important than the well being of the country , , , granted that the alternate was no "silk purse". Those same people will "double down" with the coming choice of a woman for the same position to the detriments
