In a recent survey, more folks think that politicians should be drug tested than they do for those on welfare.
I find it amusing how those who aren't struggling find ways to justify their thinking about those who are struggling. How many of you could raise a family on less than $300 per week with no benefits? The fast food business and customers have adjusted to the significant increase costs in meat, bread and other materials. They can also adjust to a much needed minimum wage increase.
I'm not a Catholic, but Pope Francis is a breath of fresh air compared to this country's political and religious blindness to the economic disparity between the have and have not's.
Maybe this President has the foresight to only cut the fuse in Iran, whereas the last near-sighted President poured gasoline on the fuse in Iraq.
Thursday evening in Virginia two guys got into a tussle over a parking spot at Walmart, one allegedly pulled a gun and knife then cut a deep gash in the arm of the other. This is how many in this country have degenerated in their warped sense of "freedom to protect one's self". Politeness will soon be dropped from the dictionary.
By this time after the elections next November, the guy sitting alone in the outdated kitchen will be history. Voters will remember the misguided and unproductive chaos he and his friends caused to the country.
It doesn't matter which side is in control, filibuster was a roadblock. The voters should decide the issues, not the Senate minority. Hats-off to Majority Leader Reid for finally killing this ridiculous rule.
Sorry Maximus, but there' plenty of us Democrat hunters out there in the woods among you. We're easy to spot-- We'll be the ones outfitted to give the game a sporting chance. I was raised hunting rabbits and squirrels with a .22 single-shot.
Either Obamacare will be working smoothly by next November, or the Republicans will have won an election mandate to fix it. They will by replacing it with Obama's first choice-- a single-payer govt-run system like Medicare.
Why did the roll-out of the Obamacare web site fail? All the govt computer geniuses were too busy over at NSA. Having worked on major projects in private industry, I don't remember any rolling out flawless as planned. The site will be fixed and millions of uninsured will have insurance.
