I'm speaking for myself Marmel. I supported Obama simply because Mitt Romney would have been a nightmare beyond historic comprehension. His campaign was poorly ran and he flip flopped on multiple issues. I would never vote for someone who hides behind a smokescreen full of lies. Mitt Romney wanted to turn medicare into some form of a hideous voucher program. Plus this man assumed that people should borrow money from their parents for college? I'm paying $1,000 per class right now! I can't imagine how out of touch a person has to be to assume that a person's parent has an avaialable golden egg sitting around somewhere. He was too out of touch for me to vote for him. Simple as that.

That was a joke Einstein. Remember your post about your extensive typing training? Sigh.. Yet you vote for those that enable such behavior so you are not part of the solution. You do know Obama took Clinton’s and Gingrich’s work requirement clause out of welfare? So you are, in reality, contradicting yourself. You praise one party and degrade the other when the one you praise is worse, not by much. Your last post is a blueprint for self-dependence and success which is more of a libertarian or true conservative (not republican) characteristic or policy wish list item. That’s what we need to foster not cradle to the grave dependency. You make it so no one has to work and they won’t. You take more money out of our pockets the less the economy will grow, less jobs created, more people get put on the dole and the harder it is to get them off it. It is a spiral that we have been in that was curbed somewhat with welfare reform. Not anymore.

Typing degree. LOL there's no such thing. There are plenty of American moochers Marmel. We both agree on that. I NEVER defended lazy do-nothing people. I'm a workaholic and I wouldn't expect anything less from another person who is able to be productive. My father instilled STRONG work ethics in me at the age of 16. I didn't have a choice for employment either. I was FORCED to get an application from a fast-food restaurant and had to apply there for a job. The point my dad hit me with was that people who do poorly in school or never push themselves to be better would have limited choices for employment and fast food was one of those examples. It really worked for me.

"Business people are less trust worthy than the government. Why make it easy for them to rip people off?"

What an insane completely false statement Enigma. Government is historically the most untrustworthy body in in the world. Dear lord how brainwashed are you?

The thing you fail to realize is that people are compensated based on performance. This creates competition among workers to perform well. This is GOOD! You are in part taking that away. It is not easy to prove productivity. This opens the flood gates for extremely frivolous lawsuits. It will hurt women.

Enigma How in the*****do you tell what is fair. Just by proclomation. "this is on fair" and now I will go back 20 years and say that it has all been unfair.

This is an attempt to socialize non union work places and to garner votes. Both end up hurting the "intended" beneficiary.

LOL!

the ar-15 your govt controlled media sold to you as being used in sandy hook and firing 100 rounds per minute was never used. the guy was refused that rifle when he tried to buy because of background checks. so, he killed his mom and stole hers.

however, he left it in the car and only took in 4 handguns! LOL!

what that means, is the president going on TV with all those children, passing EOs, and talking about how bad rifles are....all staged, it was based on a lie.

BWAHAHAHAH!

“Sixteen F-16s and 200 Abrams tanks are to be given to the Egyptian government before the end of the year under a foreign aid deal signed in 2010 with then-Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak,”

of course, its considered foriegn aid...you know...to help the poor and suffering people of the country.

LOL!

"The State Department has refused to cancel or delay the delivery of several American-made F-16 fighter jets to Egypt, claiming that the arms deal serves America’s “regional security interests,” according to an official State Department document obtained by the Free Beacon."

enigma....i dont know why though ya know? just like this headline. he is sending 16 f-16s and 200 abraham tanks to an extremely unstable middle east nation being run by the muslim brotherhood...a terror group.

so, yea, i agree that its terrible that americans are supporting this man even when he is arming the muslim brotherhood. its sad.

i have no idea what purpose we are arming middle east nations to go to war with each other? what good does that do?

LOL @ Marmel. Do you REALLY want grammar patrol? That whole paragraph was beyond hopeful editing. There are questions asked ending with periods. Words are spelled wrong throughout the entire paragraph. What is your major? Was it lawn care? Weight lifting? Or are you an employee with Labor Ready?

Blues & Marmel- my previous comment is accurate.

Good Year went unpunished and did not have to pay Lilly Ledbetter anything because they paid her unfairly long enough for the statute of limitations to run out. By the time she found out her pay was much lower than men in the same job, it was too late.

The court ruled in her favor but could not order her employer to pay her the money they owed her.

usblues- educate yourself about the Ledbetter Act. Lilly proved in court that she was paid unfairly but never got a dime from GoodYear because she didn't find out about the unfair pay until the statute of limitations was up.

I'm right about this... look it up. That's why the law was changed.

Our politics and our politicians are a God-awful joke of the planet. Each president is becoming worse than the one before.

Barak Obama and George Bush are the two worst presidents in the history of the United States of America. To applaud either one of these...humans...is to applaud debt, war, bombs, financial bubbles, middle class theft, currency manipulation and eventual destruction, lying, cheating, unconstitutional legislation and acts, Wall Street mega-banks, corporate power monopolies, and 100% unamericanism.

into excess spending and unnatural, undeclared, senseless, and neverending wars.

It's a joke. What we have allowed our government to become and what our perception of what government means and is suppose to be is backwards.

Term limits should be a no-brainer, but they are not.

Politics should never have been allowed to become a career. It is leading us down.

Service through elected government was never intended to be a career. It wasn't meant to be a job. It was not intended to be a way to make a living.

I attempted to read the comments here, but could not bear to read them all. What politician that you know that we could accuratley label a statesman or a stateswoman? None of them.

We now have kids wanting to grow up and be career politicians. I don't know how many of you grew up wanting to go into a life of servitude, but I didn't.

When an American makes politics a career, eventually they will begin to serve themselves and their interests first and the country comes second. Reelection becomes a spending mania, promises to the people will be made and not kept, deals will be brokered with special interests and favors will be given and then returned, and soon even the constitution becomes negotiable and issues that were never meant to be determined at the federal level are used to divide and conguer a willing population....

Marmel- The Ledbetter Act allows the statute of limitations to reset everytime an employee gets an unfair paycheck. That allows an employee to take legal action once they find out they have been paid unfairly.

Businesses could go unpunished if they rip-off an employee for long enough without them noticing.

Business people are less trust worthy than the government. Why make it easy for them to rip people off?
