    Good afternoon V1.1 - Personally, I think the man is dense and tone deaf, unable to understand the extra meaning to words he spews. However, for those who consider him brilliant, the best orator ever to grace the Oval Office, one can only assume that his words had purpose and there's only one logical purpose.

    There is no extra meaning in the words; they are chosen carefully, and I'm sure they are poll tested as well...

This won't happen right away, but eventually I think it will.

    The government will eventually grow so large that it will have no other choice but to start defunding programs that people have relied on for generations in some families. Once those programs are cut, people will be out on the streets and the crime rate will skyrocket.

    What is needed is responsible oversight to social and government programs for reform and in some cases cut completely. which is something the government is INCREDIBLY LACKING because it has grown so large.
    Greetings, TheNextEra.

    I have been hearing the word "hydra" a lot lately when the government is being discussed, and I was puzzled why "water" would be a descriptive. So I looked the word up, and here is what I found:

    Hydra: noun. Classical mythology A water or marsh serpent with nine heads, each of which, if cut off, grew back as two. Hercules killed this serpent by cauterizing the necks as he cut off the heads.

    Hydra: noun. Modern era.. A persistent or many-sided problem that presents new obstacles as soon as one aspect is solved.

    Now I understand why I'm suddenly hearing this word when describing the government! It seems apt!

    President Obama didn't say that race relations in the USA will deteriorate, he said that could happen, Which is a reasonable thing to say.

    "Better days are coming." ~ But not for today's out of touch, running out of time, GOP.
    I'll put you down as "undecided" about Limbaugh.

    It was an odd place for the President to insert race. It's almost as if the President is using fear of black violence to get what he wants.

    You guys keep saying that the GOP is "out of touch" or some such. The evidence is very much to the contrary.

It provides them a man-made "excuse" for themselves.

    You never hear Obama, and especially the Sharptons and Jacksons, lecture on personal responsibility except in one direction.

    The strategy is clearly to divide us as much as possible, then capitalize politically.
    Sharpton and Jackson would be without income if racial tension could not be stirred on a regular basis

    So you were just pondering a hypothetical, were you? No safety nets have been destroyed under Obama's term in office but you can see class warfare getting worse because............

    No I am saying that if we were to get rid of all the social programs at once that the right hates, it would create chaos. You do realize that Obama is not the ONLY person that affects social programs right? So does the house and senate.
