    The only thing good about it is it's culling the herd for my kids. There are so many young adults walking the streets with 3rd-grade educations, it's dumbfounding, yet they've got that high school diploma somehow. Most American minorities are falling further and further behind in most every category, despite the fact that the political party they blindly support is winning elections at a record pace.

    It's criminal.
    Is that not the fault of the parents? parents over the last decade or so have let technology raise their kids just so they don't have to. TV, Video games, internet, and so on have become baby sitters. Don't blame the Government for fat,lazy kids, that's all on the parents shoulders.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    He's a bottom feeder.

    And there you used Bush as a comparison again.

    Don't worry, your state and local taxes will go up to make up the difference....
    Space Exploration, education grants, turtle tunnels. And thats just off the top of my head. I actually PAY someone to come up with such ideas (the President). Dont worry, your taxes will go up instead.

    Of course, but the topic is Obama. And he is responsible for day to day expenditures. Congress makes the laws. He implements them.

    I didnt put blame soley on him. Im blaming him for HIS part. Maybe you should check the spending forum where I blame everyone in a topic where its appropriate. But THIS topic is about Obama.

    True, but you know how they'll vote, and their numbers are becoming too great to overcome by the boot-strappers that used to win American elections.

    If that were the case, then you'd be griping even more about the Congressional vacations than about the Presidential vacations...especially in view of how many vacations Dubya took, and for how long.

    Answering my post that Bush took more vacations with a comment that Bush actually got things done - implying that Obama hasn't which is demonstrably false. And which is completely beside the point in any case.

    If you didn't mean that as a dodge to avoid criticizing a Republican president for the same behavior you criticize Obama for state so. If you're going to criticize one you need to extend your criticism to all.

    That I dont respond to every post on ever topic is not indicative of my lack of opinion. Congress isnt the topic.
