    Seriously, do some research about what life was like before. I certainly don't want to go back there.
    What makes you think I didn't already know what it was like? And many did not become socialists and join the Communist party, nor died in alley's. Go to any major city today and bums are dying in alleys even with the many socialist welfare programs. Why is creating mo.re welfare programs or extending existing one's going to make any difference? You're pissing in the wind. You can't stop people from themselves nor can you alter individual's reality of an early death. Allow people the choice and freedom to do what they want WITH GUIDANCE, and they may not be as stupid and illiterate as you think they are.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Its only more important if your president says that fighting the war is vital to our national security and BO says that Afghanistan IS that important.

    (for the record, Im on the record as saying we should have been out in 2006)

    I kinda like the cars and that lifestyle. Though the radioactive water would be a drag. Seriously... have anything to back up that view?

    Or, one could say it would force people to take accountability and responsibility for their lives instead of deferring to Government, who steals, misuses and lies about it all the while, creating yet MORE legislation to fix a problem THEY created in the first place. You're dire futuristic view while hyperbole and a false choice... shows a lack of ideological creativity.

    By not following bad interpretations of Keynesian economics and spending us and the rest of the world into oblivion? Wow... I guess I've been a closet anarchist all along. Cool!

    Here is the other side of the coin...

    We still are attending theatres in droves. restaraunts are still packed. WalMart parking lots are still packed. Every welfare recipient in the country cant afford food but somehow manages a cell phone. Game stations still do a thriving business.

    Maybe the problem isnt a lack of jobs but that we have 20 million people TAKING jobs that 'no American would do' and then sending that money down to mexico. We incarcerate marijuana users. We give hundreds of billions a year out in free foreign assistance. We give billions to arts programs to create **** no one wants. We give billions to university students to study **** no one cares about.

    If that ever comes to pass, I hope we also have good snipers available.

    Re: Boehner wants to raise the retirement age to 70

    And waaaait a second... I thought they were talking about temporarily lowering the retirement age to get older workers out and let younger workers in to help drop the unemployment numbers? WTF happened with that idea? My dad was all sorts of excited. He's gonna WTF pissed if he has to wait until 70 to retire.
