I am reading online about Petitions that are arriving at the White-House asking for the petitioners State to Secede from the Union. Most of these States are from the Old Confederacy and the most letters have come from Texas. These people are unhappy that we have had Another election and the President is STILL Black.
I don't think there has been such a time since the last civil War when the country was so Divided between US and THEM. All the leadership of the House can see as a Role for itself is to OPPOSE the President. The ONLY thing that seems to be Important to the Losers is some kind of white-water-gate-Lewinsky Dress.
Remember Benghazi is REALLY still a Rebel Base in a WAR ZONE set up to fight against Tripoli . It would be GREAT if we could figure out a way for US to set up a shop there that was GUARANTEED SAFE - But that does not happen when there isn't even a Real Government there yet. REAGAN Lost 241 Americans in an attack in Beirut and we WENT HOME - This time we are Still There.
JUMP! -If the ONLY way we can Reduce BLOATED Military spending and End the subsidy of Billionaires by higher than necessary Taxes for the Middle Class - we should JUMP Off the Cliff! It s Not Like we don't have a Bungee cord tied to Our foot. The GOP may have sworn to the Norquist it will NEVER raise taxes but it can LOWER them for the 99% that the President will not VETO. OR we can make that same deal NOW - Its Up to Speaker Boehner.
It would be a Better opportunity to serve our community if we used the $60+ million Dollars to Built a NEW Charter School at the Lincoln High school site.
We should use the $60+ Million to turn Lincoln into a CHARTER SCHOOL
"About 11.8 percent of all workers belong to a union" - That is quite shameful and the source of Much of America's Misery today . The worker was much better off when Labor Unions had more members. ThinkProgress reported last year that, the relative decline of unions over the past 35 years has mirrored a decline in the middle class’s share of national income. If it were NOT for Labor Unions there would be No 5 Day 40 Hour Week - which means No Weekend for Families. And CHILDREN must No Longer work like SLAVES in the Coal Mines and Sweat Shops - because of the Unions. We don't all live in Company-Owned Homes in Company-Owned Towns and shop and Company-Owned Stores. The New Feudalism that the robber Barons of the 19th Century envisioned for America was largely Defeated by the Labor Unions.
You are so very Right. But we should examine a False Dichotomy that is being offered by the Author of the Post we are commenting on. We are asked why the President responded to a Hurricane he watched come up the coast for Days and a Mission to take out Bin Laden that he planned for Months - DIFFERENTLY than he Responded to a Sudden Attack by a Terrorist HIDDEN in a Crowd of Protesters who fired an RPG into a US Compound that we had set up in a War Zone. These are NOT Equivalent.
People should be asking why the CIA flew Bin Laden from Tora Bora to a Hotel in Pakistan after the Bin Laden Family was home after flying back from Texas and their meeting with their Oil Business Partners in the Bush Family on 9/11.
I believe there will come a Day when the Greatest thing a Person can do will NOT be to Kill and to die for a Blood-Thirsty Country. Twice as Many AMERICANS were killed in Afghanistan and Iraq than on 9/11 and HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of Iraqis and Afghans were killed in Wars of Mass Distraction . Without soldiers HITLER would NOT have been able to round up and INCINERATE over one million Jewish children, two million Jewish women and three million Jewish men. War is HELL and Hell is Populated with DEMONS. About 500 mostly women and children and the elderly were murdered at My Lai - Vietnam in 1968 by US Soldiers. Many of the women were gang-raped and their bodies were found to have been Mutilated. SOMEDAY I hope we now longer WORSHIP War.
Walla Walla STILL - as of Sunday Morning - has NOT even counted HALF of its Ballots. We are the WORST County, in the State that was LAST of any US Race to Declare a winner for Governor . The SYSTEM operated under a GOP Secretary of State is ONLY Less suspect than the one run by the GOP of FLORIDA. But Even so - We have a GREEN Governor who has focused his career on Clean Energy like wind and solar and even with the rise of the KKK/Tea Party we STILL have a Kenyan-Born-Muslim meaning BLACK President.
