    The only manure being peddled here is the denial that the President of the USA does not have as part of his office a duty to recommend policies that he thinks are for the good of the nation. That is what you are denying with your silly comment about cows and waste.

    Hyperbole and over the top partisan exaggeration simply make for a good laugh and are no substitute for rational thinking or solid evidence - both of which are lacking in your comment about animal waste and clowns.

    all through history empires have fallen because of the mistreatment of the working class and the over indulgence of the rich of the poor, that was my point

    what did you tell your students that this phrase meant? that the tenth amendment means nothing and if congress claims some spending is for the "general welfare" that alone makes it constitutional?

    no wonder we have a government 5X larger than it should be
    And you are still impotent to define either phrase that the Constitution tells us is the purpose of government.

    An interesting read

    but when people think congress can pass anything it wants, no wonder they whine that someone like Romney isn't paying "enough" taxes. they are going to need every penny we have to fund the crap they want

    you seem to think that massive taxes on the rich actually help the poor. rather, the dem party has done to the poor what drug dealers do to addicts

    You seem happy to pontificate telling us what you believe the Constitution DOES NOT mean but you are impotent to tell us what the language does mean.

    Interesting.

    its dicta. and what you seem to miss is that UNLESS congress was given a power specifically, it doesn't have it. since those phrases do not meet that test, I couldn't care less.

    Comparing apples to cinderblocks using this type of hyperbolic partisanship is hardly a substitute for ration discussion of a national tax policy.

    More pontification without a shred of supporting evidence to support your own belief system. We know what you believe Turtle. That is now irrelevant. You have to go beyond that statement of belief in debate.

    Can you?
