    I am amazed that liberals always want to use the courts in a perverse manner to circumvent the true nature of our constitution (Roe v. Wade as a perfect example) …. even though I believe everyone who is a legal citizen should have the right to vote the wise men who wrote the Constitution did [...]

    to me, the “what” is — the world currently is in desperate times and the U.S. in particular has been demonized for our way of life … PAST & PRESENT …. in order for us to protect our way of life the President must have all resources available to them — including the ability to [...]

    Did not both Bush and Lincoln suspend habeas corpus ? funny,how most historians regard Lincoln as a hero who saved our country and Bush rather the opposite. I think both should be regarded as heroes !! PLEASE NOTE: •President Lincoln’s action suspended the habeas corpus rights of U.S. citizens. The Military Commissions Act of 2006, [...]

  • I guess there exists a double-standard for the Dems with their President’s own beliefs ….. “elections have consequences” — the people of Indiana had their say at the ballot box and all elected officials should just vote the way they want … if you lose you lose, if you win you win … just be a man about it !!

    I think the students sprayed were lucky — if these protests keep going on the US will likely have another Kent State incident on it’s hands. Everyone needs to just chill out … students need to stop protesting and there will no police around to have these silly encounters !!

    if I remember correctly was it not the liberal left’s golden boy … JFK — expousing “don’t ask what your country can do for you but what can you do for your country”

    my vote goes to the person who expouses the policies of self reliance … here are my facts — laid off from my salaried position at a large central PA heavy-highway construction firm in 2008 … was re-hired in 2009 … made $54,000 last year and because of my contributions to my company was rewarded [...]

    I’m getting tired of this same old s**t … to me there is 9.1% of our country who are idiots and just they just “don’t get it” !! … or if the underemployed number is really 20% … get off your ass and make something happen — get a job !! You do understand simple [...]

  • that would be fine with me … let the 10-person panel submit the 20 issues for Congress to pass into law. I’m all for “Rule of Law” … should Bush have been impeached ?? — maybe so ?? I’ve gotten over my anger at the whole Clinton episode (you do know that lying to Congress [...]

  • let me enlighten you my fellow citizen …. far from “lazy”, a round of 18 holes for me is about 4.5 miles of walking and enjoying the beauty of the outdoors … far from “entitled”, grew up in low-income family and got teased at school sometimes for the Sears mail-order clothes I wore … put [...]

  • ain’t America great … freedom of speech is one our most important rights and I support your right to call me names but I cannot force myself to stoop to that level …. my own personal experiences guide my beliefs and even though we are in rough times as a nation, our country will survive [...]

  • WOW !! ….. what a great piece of fiction Charlie !! …. a gripping thought-out plot to the very end !! …. certainly an award-winning short story … now you can quit your day job and concentrate on being a full-time author — LOL

  • funny thing is …. don’t watch Fox news (too much jibberish) — only MSNBC (for some laughs) and NBC (for the actual news of the day) …. just say’n !! …. banks, businesses and homeowners, etc., etc. — no one should be bailed out.

  • personal experience … got laid off from my salaried position with a heavy-highway construction firm here in central PA in Nov. 2008 …. got my job back a few months later … have never made more than $55,000 in one year im my life and have always voted for Republicans … am 54 years old … wanted to boot Bush out of office early when he gave all the money to the banks because it smacked of progressive ideology …. RESPONSIBILITY … there should not be such a thing as “too big to fail” … but isn’t that the progs usual excuses for the downtrodden … not their fault for signing mortgages that were “too big to pay back” and so on and so forth … each person is responsible for their own successes and failures.

  • I’m a voter from PA but isn’t Grayson the loudmouth from Florida who the PEOPLE voted out of office …. guess he still doesn’t know what he is talking about !!

    good post — thanks for your insight — the more we all learn from each other life’s experiences the better we will be as a society. A little of my personal experiences — have two wonderful daughters, both in their mid-twenties and very self-sufficient, I have been deep in debt a few times and worked myself out of each time — been through several marriages and now married to my soulmate — and throughout my up and down life I have always believed that my life is what I make of it … good or bad.

    the taxes I pay still should not be used for someone else’s “bad decision” — your words not mine.

    okay, I’ll give you that fair analysis of my statement but still the purpose of my post was to point out your statement that included the “bad decision” terminology …. my bad decision would be my problem, not yours or anyone elses’ … also, as a matter of fact I give to charitable organizations that assist fellow citizens in their time of need but I also truly believe that it is a personal “good decision” of mine — the government has no role in making that decision for me just as the government does not partake in any bad decision the I or anyone else might make.

    I so much disagree with almost all progressive ideas but agree with your statement “bad decision” …. I should have not have to pay for other people’s “bad decisions” —- it starts out in our schools with parents thinking that their children can do no wrong, must be the teacher’s fault that Johnny can’t read — NO PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY has been the downfall of our society and progressives are the enablers !!

    I know for a fact that a right-to-work state is probably a better fit for state workers. I was a state employee in northern VA for about 15 years and always thought I was paid a deserving salary for my contributions to the welfare of the Virginia citizens. In 2003 I moved back home to [...]
