There are few, exceptional good examples of our government at work. They waste as much as they criminally embezzle.
Yep about as random as the ever adjusting and shrinking economy. Six years of this man and his policies and the incompetents he appoints to run his sinking ship and the middle class is disappearing. He is supported by many rich individuals and organizations and still preaches that the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer, but his solution is in trying to increase the wealth of the poor but to reduce the wealth of the rich...except of course those rich that support him and other Democrats.
The tax laws and the corporate handouts aren't made to happen by the people. They are made to happen by the laws passed or bad law ignored by the members of Congress that are professed to be the representatives of the people. The tax laws, the loopholes, and the ability of corporations to not pay their 'fair share' are because of the laws written and passed by these representatives.
Which Party has led this parade for most of the past century? Come on Echo, tell us. Wall Street doesn't pass laws. They do create the text for many of our laws then make a huge campaign contribution to those with the power in Washington, or promise them a lucrative career when they lose and election or retire (which doesn't happen much in Washington). Those poor laws and lack of attempts to change those bad laws are a direct result of the money coming into Washington, the greed and lack of personal integrity of those same 'representatives.
Those laws and conditions that harm our economy and livelihoods are not there by accident, they are not passed by the folks on Wall Street. People demean those that make these political contributions in attempts, often too successful, for the poor performance in Washington. Because an offer is made doesn’t mean it has to be accepted. Those accepting these offers and those performing their in the best interests of their personal wealth, power and futures are to blame.

Hey Lady Echo, when did you decide to use this alias? I don't doubt that the earth is a bit warmer than in the past. I don't think that the varied and many so called 'experts' have a clear handle on all the causes or a solution. Just like they didn't have all the correct data and/or solutions when they claimed a coming next ice age.
Do you really have a high level of confidence in folks that seemingly can't make up their minds of we are cooling or heating and comparing data from less accurate sources 30, 50 or 100 years ago to make their case?
Why do the majority of the suggested solutions (which aren't really solutions) need to be implemented with a new tax or an increase in costs to the general public? Why So those making the suggestions can become what the Democrats insist then despise...rich.
Nah, I am in the Hillary camp...what does it matter now? they're dead, she is out of office, Obama says it was all because of a stupid video and he has tried his best to get the MSM to ignore the entire incident. What difference does it make because he said it wasn't his fault and he didn't know about it. That make it OK!
You were the one that started using a license or identification as the subject of your post, which by the way had little or nothing to do with the original subject. That is called 'deflection' and is something at which both you and this administration are quite adept.
If old Albert Gore would tell the truth the largest source of methane gas in our country is the air coming out of Washington. It truly is a chocking hazard...too bad it doesn't choke more of those generating it.
And you don't have to possess any type of identification or license to vote. There are people out there that should not be allowed to vote or reproduce...you might fit those categories quite well.
Ah, the SSA, yet another decades old problem that the folks that created the mess have insisted they are they only one's that know how to fix it but for one reason or another (mostly political or career threatening) haven't.
Really? You picked this as a shinning example of our government at work. And...who was it that brought this 'problem' to the Trademark Office? Who instigated this idea in the first place. Could it have been good old Chucky Shurmer...the same old fool that insists that the WHO has to be concerned with World Cup returning visitors for disease risk, but said nothing about all the illegal immigrant children that are more likely to bring even a more varied and dangerous list of maladies to our shores.
Keep digging, just try to remember the age old adage...when you find yourself in a hole, it is time to stop digging.
This will likely be blasted by Ricky and Lady Echo as just more conservative bias, but me thinks the lady makes excellent points, if correctly attributed. If not, the author is right on the money.
“The American public overwhelmingly regrets ObamaCare, our veterans are dying waiting to see doctors, the IRS intimidates conservative groups, the southern border is compared to a sieve and the president assures us not to worry – smiling, golfing and at this very moment partying… Because the fundraising never stops – not when four Americans die in Benghazi, and not when Baghdad is at the brink.” —Megyn Kelly
I personally dislike him because he is a weak leader, a phony, dishonest and self interested in his future and his legacy more than he is the welfare of this country and its people.
Does anyone ever consider all the 'scientific' data a decade or so ago that insisted we were headed for another ice age? Does anyone ever consider that that weather and temperature data collected even twenty years ago, let alone 50 years ago or longer was not as accurate as it might be today? How do we know for sure that the average temperature today is REALLY one degree higher than it was then? There is no guarantee that the difference in the temperature's are really higher, or lower.
The data today is assumed, as probably rightfully so, to be much more accurate than older data making any comparison questionable at best.
The key to finding the real truth is to take a much closer look at those making the millions for this quandary and discussion and more closely review their sources of data. As typical with our government and big business, follow the money to find the truth and real reasons for most actions.
Deflection is the correct term. There aren't more pressing matter for our government to be tied up with at this time in our history? There aren't more important issues that Congress has to be involved in managing? Why is anyone in the government involved in this anyway. There is no Constitutional right for anyone to never be offended by something someone does or says. If we get so caught up in our underwear worrying about what has offended the latest minority group, we are doomed as a nation. We are not paying attention to, managing or resolving the most important issues this country faces. Our 'representatives' apparently don't understand the concept of acting in the best interests of the country, our security and our economy and future.
And all of this proves several points. First that there never has been peace in the Muslim world and likely won't ever be peace in the Muslim world. Second that our foreign policy of stand back and watch until it is too late for any meaningful action is going to cost us dearly.
It is the typical double standard applied all too often by both Party's, but lately we have been getting heavy doses of it from the Demorats...if you don't agree with Obama or Harry, you're a dirt bag that wants women and children to die, the earth to melt and never give a woman a good job. If you debate, suggest a debate or make a comment about a fair debate, you will be put on an enemies list and Boy Wonder press clown will get you. Of course even he couldn't take it any longer and is bailing the sinking ship.
I used to work for a guy that said with respect to corporate rules, 'keep doing what we are doing until someone tells us to stop. It is much easier to beg forgiveness than to ask permission.' Obama apparently ignores anyone telling him to stop and never begs for forgiveness.
This entire release and its timing is simply political deflection and it could very well blow up in his face. But it does distract from his new EPA rules, the VA, Benghazi and the IRS mess. No one is talking about those things today. If this blow up, he will simply say we didn't have all the facts, but now we do and we act appropriately and it will disappear from the news and little or nothing will happen. SOP!
