Come on Pole, I said no one I know.......we think he is a baiter and makes money promoting himself selling helplessness.
I don't know why anyone would listen to Sharpton, he is a total clown. He certainly is no hero of the left, believe me, no one I know that is a Dem cares for this guy.
we have to stop agreeing with each other......this is getting a little scary. I do believe there are good people who could do a good job governing, yet, are scared away by the dirt that is politics. I think it needs to start with dialogue, not insults, just fix a few things, and go from there.
I don't know what "prog agendas" are. I just see a lot of divisiveness and no want to understand how we got here to begin with. And which politician of late has really worked for the 'will' of the people? I'd be good with voting them all out. Is McConnell or Pelosi really looking out for us or themselves. Vote them out, can it really be worse than the gridlock and animosity we have today?
you are not very nice........I hope you rethink aligning him with ISIS, that really is not that funny.
This happened earlier today, was getting ready to take my dog out and walked out the front door. At the same time there were two guys walking by my house holding handguns. Needless to say, not what you want to see and definitely freaked me out. These guys were just holding them in their hands and bantering about. I was pulling my dog back inside while looking at them and then realized that although the guns looked real, that they were plastic. I was going to have called the Police had I not spotted that they were pellet guns.
If I was in my car driving down the street I would have definitely called. I'm thinking, what are these two guys thinking? I wouldn't be surprised if the Police were called and then another shooting happens because the guns looked real and given what has been going on lately, that every Officer is completely on edge.
What is wrong with people?
Pole - first of all, I appreciate the civil discourse.
I worked for an Investment Mngt firm, and I saw first hand how things were collapsing around us and Bush and Obama did the right things regarding bailouts (I can't believe I'm saying something positive about Bush). However, the failure to break them up and make them manageable to stop the too big too fail scenario is where Obama really failed. He is beholden to Wall Street, and it is horrible.
As far as him lying, they all lie, and I do believe he told the truth re: Benghazi (I know we'll never see eye to eye on that).
Remember Reagan, he tucked tail and ran after the Marines were killed in Beirut, and he was right. If Obama did the same thing, it would be 24/7 Fox coverage of what a wuzz and failure he is.
Hypothetically, if you and I were in charge of the Houses, I bet we could agree on a few things and compromise, not all things you write I disagree with. I think the Politicians are so afraid to compromise or agree that we are stuck in perpetual neutral and nothing gets done.
Pole, what you describe is true.....however, that doesn't mean that the police need additional training in use of force as well. One does not cancel out the other. There is plenty of white trash around, they happen to be in rural areas vs. concentrated in cities, so they get much less news coverage.
Also, he has catered to Wall Street like no other, that makes him a capitalist......much to the chagrin of those that thinks he is a socialist. His immigration policy is a complete mess....I can go on and on.
Pole, there are many things I am not happy about with him, and have put that on his MB. He had an opportunity to break up the big banks to stop having the too big to fail scenario and setting us up for another economic disaster. Not letting the Patriot Act expire, very odd and wishy/washy foreign policy and an ACA that could have been much better to name a few things. However, he came into office at a very difficult time with us being a step removed from a depression. He has had his back against the wall as everything he tried the Repubs have worked so very hard to stop. If the scenario had been reversed, and the Dems were in charge of the house and did everything possible to stop a Repub Prez, how would you feel?
you have issues if you believe that......please get help
Rob - you make a lot of sense. Remember though, everything this Administration does is to destroy America, they will never give him credit for anything he has done that is good.
say Hello to Cuban Stogies!!!! Remember though Elk, regardless of what Obama does, it is always a failure, just ask the RWNJs, they'll gladly remind you every day.
