    Re: Are you going to warch the State of the Union?

    That a significant majority(73.7%) of honest members? .. ..or scammers? ... declare this "non-watch of Our Presidents address" , I find to be disturbing.
    Are so many of us full of hatred and fear ?
    I think not.
    I prefer to think is a problem of "run-away dishonesty " .
    But how to deter the scammers ?

    Re: Are you going to watch the State of the Union?

    As painful as it will be to sit through this SOTU, I'm going to watch it. I want to see the reactions of those on the left and the right to Obama's comments especially if he has the audacity to blame Republicans for his failed policies. And if he continues to threaten over-riding Congress with his pen to get what he wants, I'm afraid there will be a visible reaction from the Speaker of the House seated directly behind him and others present. It could get ugly. This guy thinks he is a king. I am also looking forward to the rebuttal to be given by the highest ranking female in the People's House, Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington. Already outlets like Time are claiming she is a dull speaker, while most have never even heard of her. But then again these were the same bunch that made a big deal out of Rubio taking a drink of water during his rebuttal and when Jindal gave his, the MSM called it flat. They don't tend to focus on their message but attack the messenger personally.

    "Full employment "
    This will not be until our education and job training are bought up to 21st century standards..
    We have jobs that go begging for QUALIFIED applicants and , at the same time we have 10 applicants(qualified) for one position...
    Industry, the unions, the people, and government MUST work together..
    If we do not know how to do this "team effort", we can ask China, or Germany, or France for help ...

    How is it scamming if it is not watched live? "Live" being the key word.

    Yep. My guess the write ups about "dull" McMorris-Rodgers is to encourage folks not to bother listening to the rebuttal. For in doing so, it may give some fruit for thought and they don't want people thinking too much.

    I will find it funny when 77% of people say they will not watch the SOTU address but come tomorrow 90% will be talking about it.
