    I'm not saying my observations are true for all people - I'm actually saying this is either intentional or un-intentional. If intentional - then it's as bad as I think it is. If un-intentional, it's simply being ignored due to the political benefits. I used to doubt, to think it couldn't be possible... that's now passed. If Democrats wanted it to change, they'd change it. Why haven't they changed it Mega? Government created the problem and government has to fix it - and it's not being fixed. If the DNC leadership over the past 30 years has been what they say they are - we wouldn't be having this conversation.

    Fake crying ... is that worse than the fake outrage of an Olbermann? Seems the same to me... How about the fake shock value of a Rep. Grayson ...

    You scared of something? What if he is (he's not) doing it for the money. Anything wrong with being successful? Why do you desire to stop an American from making a good living? Is he picking your pocket somehow?
    What's it your concern if people want to circle a douche?
    Do you complain when they circle Jon Stewart or Chris Mathews? They are douches in my opinion but anyone is welcome to circle them. I wouldn't waste a wish on getting them to stop.

    True.

    It is possible that this may be unintentional, as Star brought up, people are going to vote in their interest. However, I have trouble with the idea that the system was designed for power over an attempt to help people. Also, I have trouble with the idea that government created the problem of poor people, they have been around for thousands of years. Personally, my suspician is that the attempt to help the poor was genuine, but it does not get to the root of the problem, which is often the people themselves. If you never change that, than you are never going to truly lift people out of poverty. This is why I think that people on welfare should have certain requirements they must meet, such as getting an education, both professionally and how to manage their personal lives. I also think a job should be assigned to them if they cannot find one. My ideas on this have been attacked from both the right and the left for various reasons. Because of this attack, it reinforces my belief that many want to take care of the poor rather than give them the tools to take care of themselves.

    I knew I should have mentioned the Vicks. That was used for a staged photo shoot. He can't cry on cue.
    To me , that shows his tears are real.

    I see. His tears are real because he can't cry on cue, so he has to use Vicks Vapo Rub in order to cry, but it is all real.

    Got it. Jeez. LOL.

    Name:The 9/12 ProjectCategory:Common Interest - Beliefs & CausesDescription:Glenn Beck has started a project called the 9/12 project.

    "This is a non-political movement. The 9-12 Project is designed to bring us all back to the place we were on September 12, 2001. The day after America was attacked we were not obsessed with Red States, Blue States or political parties. We were united as Americans, standing together to protect the greatest nation ever created."

    We need to unite on principles and values. We will always disagree on policies and candidates but it's our principles and values that unite America.

    Unite with me?

    The 9 principles are:

    1. America Is Good.
    2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.
    3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.
    4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.
    5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.
    6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.
    7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.
    8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.
    9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.

    The 12 values are:

    * Honesty
    * Reverence
    * Hope
    * Thrift
    * Humility
    * Charity
    * Sincerity
    * Moderation
    * Hard Work
    * Courage
    * Personal Responsibility
    * Gratitude

    Sorry I can't watch/listen to video on this POS PC.
    The 9/12 project looks non political to me. No party affiliation.

    Only those that can't refute a person would attack them on other than their positions.
    There is no such thing as a “Natural Born Dual-Citizen“.
