    Seems to happen a lot on these pages when one is asked something they would rather not address.

    It'll be very popular in Cantor's district....until there's a natural disaster there. Then they'll be looking for the "scary big government" to swoop in and help.

    Exactly... thanks for affirming my expectation.
    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.

    That's part of the problem. Too many believing that it's up to the government to provide for them anytime things aren't going the way they expect it to.

    It's called dependency. When people do not plan for disaster and they expect others to pick up the pieces for them. Disaster happens to all of us at some point - better to take on that eventuality instead of expecting others to do it for us.

    On your first statement. I can understand it with some people. I've not noticed Ockham to have been out of line though. There are many accusations passed around that are just that. Seems to me that he just wanted you to back it up.

    Now, it's not about Cantor. I care less what happens to him. Throw tomatoes at him, I don't care. It's the big picture. We are broke and simply can not continue down this same path. We caused this and unfortunately there are negative consequences when you do stupid things.

    As I said, why doesn't Obama take this to the public like Reagan did when he wanted something? Even as Clinton was able to. Go on television and state that people need help but we do not have the money and that he believes we need to raise it by doing this or that and he expects the American people to support him on it.

    My memory is exactly why I asked you to back it up, and why you cannot, proving your statement simple rhetoric.
