    Will our Enemies Launch a Sneak Attack?

    December 7th, is right around the corner. We are just weeks away from the automatic defense spending cuts. I hope China doesn't try to make a move, while "The One" is destroying Military Morale. Wish I had a bunker to hide in. How many know we are spending more money on this fun loving, Presidental Couple, than the British spend of their entire Royal Family. For a poor girl, the Daughter of a bus driver I believe, Mouchelle sure does have expensive tastes.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • Well it's Dec 7 and no sneak attack. What other #$%$ do you have?

    • Daughter of a bus driver I believe"

      You have a lot of brass to lie about a good man: You have the nerve to sit on a chair posting nonsense messages all day while Americans are out working.

      Quote:
      "Fraser was born on August 1, 1935 in Chicago, Illinois. He grew up there and married Marianne Shields who was also born in Chicago. They had two children, Craig and Michelle LaVaughn, who they raised on the southside of Chicago.

      Fraser was a pump worker for the City of Chicago. He tended the boilers at a water-filtration plant. On the 2008 campaign trail, we learned from both Barack and Michelle, that Mr. Robinson developed multiple sclerosis as a young man. In spite of having this disease, he continued working and according to Michelle, he hardly ever missed a day of work.

      Michelle told how she would see her father walk to work using two canes. Even though he had to sometimes struggle to get ready for work, he knew this was what he needed to do. Certain things just took a little longer for him.

      He was also active on the political front. Fraser Robinson was a Democratic Precinct Captain. Michelle and her brother, Craig looked up to their dad as their hero. They worked hard not to disappoint him.

      Both Fraser and Marianne valued hard work, independence, and honesty. They worked together to instill these values in their children.

      Craig tells the story of how he and Michelle ended up attending Princeton after they finished high school.

      Coming out of high school, Robinson was heavily recruited by both the University of Washington and Princeton. The former was offering a full ride, Princeton a financial-aid package that would leave his parents with a bill of $3,500 per year.

      "It might as well have been a million dollars," Robinson says.

      He told his father, Fraser Robinson, that he wanted to go to Washington. His father asked why, and Craig said he didn't want his parents to have to pay anything. The response prompted his father to drop his head, and shake it.

      "If you pick a school based on what I have to pay, I'll be very disappointed," Fraser Robinson told his son.

      Fraser Robinson suffered from multiple sclerosis, an affliction that did not stop him from going to work every day in Chicago's water department. He was a man that you desperately did not want to disappoint.

      Fraser Robinson's son wound up at Princeton, his parents funding it with cash from an insurance policy and a credit card.Says Craig now, "My father's decision changed my whole life. It changed all of our lives. If I hadn't gone to Princeton, my sister probably wouldn't have gone to Princeton and she never would've met Barack and none of this would've happened. All because of my father."

    • "Wish I had a bunker to hide in."

      On that, many agree with you

      Sentiment: Buy

    • Maybe you can hide in your Prius, jon2retard.

    • Gosh. Where is Pearl Harbor? The Sandwich Islands? Was that the Japanese or Chinese? What year is this?

    • America's real enemies aren't in China. They are in DC and Wall Street. People like Ca. Sen. Diane Feinstein do business in China and ship their junk to us putting American workers out of business and helping fund the Red Army. Many firms listed on Wall Street do the same thing. "Why do none dare call it treason? When treason prospers none dare call it treason."

    • why would china want to attack us when they hold all of our bonds and we buy everything they make

      • It's a theory. China has talked of refusing to lend us any more money. Their economic head, asked the question, "why should we lend you money, to pay your unemployed, more than we pay our employed?" You see, the Chinese are afraid they may never get their money back. So it only stands to reason, they may decide to come here and take back, what they feel is rightfully theirs. You see the takers refused to vote a businessman as President, Mitt Romney. Someone who openly asked the question, of all Fed spending. Is it worth borrowing money from China (at a very high interest rate), to pay for said program? The answer is likely to be no. This would include, Cash for Clunkers, Unlimited unemployment insurance, and benefits for illegal aliens. A no brainer. This administration, really does practice vodoo economics.

        Sentiment: Strong Sell
