    Good evening Polgara.

    Obama only uses his phone in the Ovala Office for staged photo ops. Have you noticed there's always a tea cup without a saucer sitting on the desk ? Or maybe it's pantywaist coffee cup ? I drink my coffee from a coffee mug.

    Obama coming right out saying he wont negotiate with the Republicans is unpresidential. That's suppose to be his job.

    You have to wonder if instead of attending his high school government class Obama was truant smoking pot and drinking beer > Because he doesn't seem to know how the federal government is structured and that their are three branches of government.

    Congress writes the laws and the President is suppose to enforce those laws.

    The President submits a budget and Congress picks through the budget and decides what parts of the President's budget that Congress will appropriate funds for. I've been told it's something to do with check and balances.

    The insanity is merely visible lately.

    We didn't get a $17,000,000,000,000 debt because people in Washington weren't nuts.

    I know why the Buddhist Monk set himself on fire in Saigon in 63. I know why that beard scratching liberal set himself on fire in front of the Pentagon while McNamara looked through his office window.

    But if you're trying to send a message, it doesn't do any good unless the people know what the message is.

    Consider what happens when the State controls Public Education, generation after generation.

    We got a republic because Americans, especially successful Americans questioned and challenged Authority.

    However, any ruling class has a vested interest in a compliant citizenry. It stands to reason that they very traits that made us a free people would be culled out of the people at large when the political upper class has the means to accomplish that. And so, we have an electorate now that eschews thought, analysis, individuality, exceptionalism and arithmetic.

    Exactly,
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    ... that's certainly not my President you're talking about, but I've always preferred strong executives who rule from the center.

    If the Founding Fathers had wanted the President to be a tool of the legislators, they wouldn't have given him the power of veto.

    Nah, just sayin' that an anti-war protest in Vietnam in 1963 didn't necessarily have to be all about you and the USMC. Those people had endured war long before the first shiny American boot touched their soil.
    And it's 'way wrong to compare some nutjob in DC with a Buddhist monk in Saigon.

    Like you said, that's definitely not your President.
