So much for the lie the GOP spreads that these parents are desirable because they are social conservatives. If they have 'family values' then why are they abandoning their children so that others are forced to take care of them?
More addle headed nonsense from a social conservative. Ridiculous. It's not our responsibility nor our humanitarian obligation to take care of every child in the world. We don't have the resources to do it, and it's not even a good idea morally when we continually let countries like Mexico and countries in Central and South America off the hook to do the right things to improve their lives. Force them to take charge of their own lives and their destinies IN THEIR OWN COUNTRIES. Those people aren't coming here to be Americans--they are coming here to avoid taking that responsibility.

Don't like the Constitution? Amend it

If the result here is elimination of BOTH union and corporate monied interests in elections, I am in favor of this Amendment. It does bring up an interesting point in my mind--what happens when one Amendment (28) clearly violates another Amendment (1)? Would the 28th negate the free speech clause in the 1st?

Pretty clever of the government, eh? Get the taxpayers to pay for a renovation that most likely won't be successful, wait for the inevitable decay, then rent the remaining buildings out for more government offices for peanuts.

Urban planners assumed boomers would move to the city once their kids were gone? Whatever gave them that idiotic idea? Really, only a crazy person would VOLUNTARILY move to the rotten cores of any of these metro areas--more crime (getting your car broken into is a 'normal' thing; as is being mugged. Really?), more drugs, bad schools, more Demo-rats, more decay, more ...((add your favorite urban decay here). In my neighborhood, a 'burb, EVERY SINGLE ONE of the parents whose kids graduated from school and left home has MOVED farther out from the urban core, not closer in. I've lived in a large metro area for over 25 years, and in my knowledge I am aware of ONE person who moved into the city from the suburbs. ONE. And dozens who have moved FARTHER from the city core.

What guarantee that something good will happen if the Republicans control both houses of Congress? They've had it before, in our recent memory, and spent like Demo-rats. What makes any of us think things will be different this time around?
I should have said "NEVER EVER vote for a black Demo-rat or female Demo-rat." Of course I would vote for a conservative Republican black or woman.
In the category of "Worst A**Clowns" we get...drum roll please....tie for first! 1) Obama and 2) Holder. Holder calls us cowards for not addressing race issues. Well here you go, every time someone DARES criticize the President or make political satire with Obama as the subject, that someone is called a 'racist.' Sure, no black man has ever screwed up, right, jerk? Holder is PART OF THE PROBLEM, obviously, not part of the solution. Given how the MSM gives the President a 'pass' because he's black, and the likelihood any Demo-rat woman will also be given a pass, I can most assuredly state that I will NEVER EVER vote for a black person or a woman.

Socialism Punk’d You, Millennials

you're wasting your time--Millennials will never realize it, they will never realize that it's their poor voting choices, collectively, have cause their poor financial state. They can't (or won't) make that connection because they won't take responsibility for their status.
If your child is 'living on his own' and you're giving him money, he's not really 'living on his own.' Start by getting rid of that false conception. If you're still giving him money after his undergrad degree, even if it's for graduate school, he's still a leech on your bank accounts. And if you're still doing that, goodness sakes, when are you ever going to expect this boy to grow up?
The problem appeared to be not enough military assets--read this story again--the assets Issa, etc. thought would have been available were NOT because they were protecting other Americans.
