My point is that these problems being pinned on Obama were problems long before he was in office.
Thinking back to when Clinton was in office, we had zero debt, and the worst thing he did was get a head job.
I remember when my older brother turned 16 ( during clinton admin) he was able to go find jobs all over town like it was nothing, if he didnt LIKE his job he would quit and find a new one, in a snap. When I turned 16, 6 years later, I had to walk all over town applying for jobs for over a month before I was finally interviewed and hired. Then I was so grateful to finally have one I stayed there even though they FAILED to get me my checks on time. Then when I was finally fed up, I quit and it took me about 6 months before I was able to find a new job.
Now its about ten years later, things are not better, but they are not the WORST. George Bush was a TERRIBLE choice, and I havent been alive more then 24 years to really have experienced alot of history, cept you can see where I get the idea that democrats are better at handling money then republicans.... as soon as republicans took office everything hasnt been as good as it once was.View Thread
Lets ask ourselves, what we want out of a president, who should the president strive to be?
In my opinion he should be a man for the Americans.
One example best illustrates who wants to be a man for the Americans.
One candidate believes FEMA is unecessary, one candidate feels it is.
During Hurricane Katrina, George Bush was on vacation, and genuinely slacked off yet again, when his country was in crisis. Not only was he at a loss when the predicted terrorist attack struck us on 9/11, but he let people die waiting for rescue on bridges etc in New Orleans.
Im actually quite happy with the way things are being handled in regards to superstorm Sandy, evacuating folks, and sending trained rescue folks in, is what should happen. If it were up to Mitt, those people would be just as bad off as the folks who were hit during Katrina.
There has been alot of catastrophe, and a man who does his best to make things "RIGHT" for Americans, is who I want to be our president. Not someone who is doing it for the money and the power and the fame, and the limousines, and whatever....View Thread
The trash talking in the election reminds me of a movie called Idiocracy.
If youve never seen this movie, you might want to check it out, its kind of a slap-stick stupid comedy, but its fairly entertaining, it had Luke Wilson in it, and the girl from saturday night live. Luke plays a man from our time who travels to the future. In the future the president is a professional wrestler who stands on the podium and cusses, enters to loud metal music, everyone in the crowd is cheering and drinking beer, they had decided to water the nations crops with Gatorade to make money off of the company for supporting their product. Well all the nations crops died because they need water, not Gatorade. And dust storms were plaguing the people, because no one could water the lawns and make things grow.
Lukes character turned out to be the smartest man left alive. Simply because he had common sense.
Todays elections follow the theorized trend of intellectual decline that this movie was based on.
Most folks are out there commenting things like, "I like Obama cause hes black" "I dont like Mitt because his name is Mitt." Those are things that have nothing to do with politics, and thats what politics are coming to. arguments over nothing important, to blow smoke up everyones behinds.View Thread
I cant watch this video while Im at work I dont have access. But on facebook last month a friend of mine shared a different video of an oriental woman just whomping and beating on her 8 month old daughter. The person who filmed this video sat calmly in the same room with this woman with out intervening as the baby kept trying to crawl inot her mothers arms for comfort and the mother would swat her as hard as she could and kick her. Its VERY disturbing. I know no background to that video, except the disclaimer at the bottom said shes been arrested...
If my neighbor was doing what I saw in THAT video, you bet Id call the cops.View Thread
Ok, so Ive read alot of these replies, I didnt finish, but I was provoked to reply myself, and share a story in which I witnessed a woman breast feeding that bothered me some.
As a woman who works in the medical field, I have my own boobs, so why do I care if I see some one elses? Nudity does not bother me in the least. I have not had any children yet, but I would like to breast feed when I do. I plan to do it with a blanket or in a closed room if I happen to be in public and my baby needs to be fed, or I could always pump, and give them a bottle, but I hear that causes nipple confusion.
Anyways, Im at the public pool last summer with my two girlfriends and my friends 4 year old son. There was a woman in the pool, carrying her baby in 3 feet of water, breast feeding. she had her bikini top wadded up in one fist and the other arm was under the baby. Everything was exposed, there were teenaged boys in the pool staring at her. I thought "She wants those young boys to make her feel like shes still got it." And yes, this was a "whipped out" situation... That was so unnecessary the only reason I can see for a woman to expose both of her breasts in a swimming pool is to get attention from males.View Thread
