    Every politician has done the same.

Once, she witnessed him get out of his truck, walk into her yard and blast it point blank. She called the cops but was left un-assisted. They suggested that she remove her Obama sign to avoid further trouble.
    Okay, I shouldn't laugh - but I'll admit it, I did laugh.

    You should come to NH. Since the Libertarians moved her in droves a few years ago, every town has at least 5 speed limit signs with a half dozen bullet holes in them. We're trying to compete with our neighbor to the west, Vermont, where every town has at least a half dozen Planned Parenthood offices.

    I laughed too. But just a little.

    So in other words, when you referred to the 47% as "non-workers" in post #44.....you didn't really mean it......riiiiiiight.......

    2 years ago. But that's what the thread is about.

    Greetings, CJ.

    My main concern has always been what happens when they have no choice but to be responsible for themselves and they honestly don't know how? Schools aren't teaching Home Ec and other programs like that any more, it seems, and few know how to even bake bread to stay alive. That is the only reason I volunteer to teach people how to can and dry foods for future use, and CJ, the classes are getting so large that it might become impossible to help everyone that wants to learn, unless more people volunteer. Math and Engineering are important, but it doesn't feed hungry little kids when there aren't enough jobs to earn money, and the Moms I teach are so happy to learn that some have cried. Even the poor worry about the future, and what it might be like for them and their families when government isn't there to help them. We've been very fortunate so far, but our $17 trillion dollar...and climbing...debt will one day catch up with us, I fear, because a rise in interest rates will take money away from those that need help. Sad...

    Yeah, but I laughed about it. I'm not a feminist, and it takes a lot more than that to get me upset.
