For the last two years I have been in a hiring delima over the root mindset here. People come out of college thinking that PC discussions trump everything - including getting their job done. It's ok to spend an afternoon on the phone promoting their particular social issue - and just telling the client that their deadline will have to be extended. It's expected that they can spend time promoting homosexual marriage in the office place and they expect the management to punish anyone who is against it. They expect you to put specially marked trash cans in every office for recycling and if you don't do it, they expect that they will be given money to go do it themselves. They have no issue with telling a client that the client is being irresponsible if the client isn't driving an electric car (never mind that the client would rip the bottom out of a Prius driving it across the construction site..) Tons of more examples and about a dozen young people who are now looking for a job somewhere else while being totally confused about the fact that I actually want them to do their job... I am convinced that the private sector businesses need a boot camp for people coming out of college. In the boot camp we get rid of all the attitudes that Ms. Abbate and her ilk have jammed into the empty heads of young people in the lie they continue to call "higher education"...

So all we have to do is find a candidate that actually has some skills to be president and they will take over... yeah, right.
Get lost ya heterophobic bigot.
Someone must have told them that this was serious.. There is no one in this administration with the skills to actually figure out that this is serious.

Yeah, except we would have to borrow about $1700 of the $3300 to make those payments... which is just part and parcel of the same amazing level of stupidity from this congress...
So what do you call someone who purposefully puts the people of this nation in danger? How about a policy that signals thugs world wide that you can trade an American hostage for your friends who are in jail in America? How about a policy that strengthens a dictator just off our coast? How about a policy that results in more Americans avoiding medical treatment due to costs and the loss of access to their preferred doctors? I understand why no one wants to use the word, but I'm beginning to wonder how we avoid calling the Post Turtle a traitor...

Yep, that's exactly what we voted for in November... /sarc off
The Republican'ts won and still the Post Turtle gets everything he wanted for Christmas.
Hmmm... I don't know, but it is hard to be concerned... That probably doesn't reflect well on me.....

The President and first lady are victims???? Cry me freakin' river...
I have been known to express some disgruntlement about my inability to tell the difference between the democraps and the republican'ts. This morning Rush had it about right - compare Hillary to Jeb.. They have the same view of amnesty, common core, welfare, foreign policy, obamacare, etc... They aren't exactly the same, but its' really, really close. Why don't we do away with all this bickering - lets have a Jeb / Hillary ticket that both parties support. The national election can just be a decision as to who is president, but the other one automatically becomes the vice-president. It's as bipartisan as you can get. It provides both parties with everything they want.. you suddenly have two people who know they are going to work together and during the campaign they are spending more time telling us about how much they can do for us rather than pizzing on each other. And finally, we get to a situation where if one is unable to fulfill their duties - the other can take over and never miss a beat.
