This 1,000,000+ unemployed are probably living on the 3rd or 4th extension of their unemploymentRead More benefit...what is wrong with another extension? Obvious this benefit is not an incentive to get the unemployed back to work but rather (unfortunately) an incentive not to work. As the president claims the economy is getting better and expanding so why not try work incentives, training, job counseling and development rather than more unemployment. We do not want to turn into Europe with a permanent cadre of unemployed living off entitlements.

Let's look to the future and see what effect Obama(s)care will have on us and the economy. Look atRead More how it will set back medical care for the average American, how money is being wasted by the roll out, fraud due to the lack of a secure web site, increased co pays, premiums etc and how it will impact our access to doctors and health care.

Take a good look at who is committing most of the crime,who our jails are holding the most of andRead More you tell me!!!

Ken, this will never happen as long as obama, reid, pelosi and the rest of the democratic party seeRead More them as a potential voting block and members of their dependent entitlement army of lemmings.

This country has wasted more money and continues to waste more money trying to enforce unenforceableRead More laws when it could take in a whole lot of money by way of taxes (and act humanely) if it could find an organized, rational way of putting those who want to be citizens on the proper path. As for the silly comment about the prison population: poor people who see no hope commit crimes, and that does not apply only to immigrants, legal or otherwise.

Quotation marks or not ....why would you assume what he meant? Being for something does notRead More necessarily mean that I am against something else. You and those like you may accept "non traditional" marriage and have no problem with it....others of us do not accept "non traditional" marriage on the basis of moral or religious reasons.

I don't have a smartphone - can't afford one and don't want it anyway. Starbucks coffee is tooRead More strong and too expensive for me, and I would drive a prius if I could, but I'm stuck with my 2002 beat-up cavi. Don't assume anything.

I don't know how this argument has turned into a "is he against gay marriage" debate. HeRead More donates to anti-gay political organizations, which was the whole point of my comment not whether or not he is against gay marriage. Once again I don't care if he is against gay marriage (or not, for that matter). I care that he donates to anti-gay organizations with company money. So lets say that he supports the traditional family unit and somehow is also for gay marriage and on top of that donates to anti-gay organizations (which is the scenario you're suggesting), then I still have a problem with him because of what he does with company money for "moral and religious reasons".
Do you think the debt ceiling should be raised to avert the country going into default on its bills?
Tony T October 8, 2013 at 02:56 am
Maybe the gov't should look at what and how we spend the taxpayers dollar before we rise the debtRead More ceiling and add to the national debt and the burden on our children and grandchildren. It's time to put the credit card away and start to eat peanut butter sandwiches for lunch until we get the budget under control and America in fiscal order.

The fact that it's even a question is ridiculous. If we don't raise the debt ceiling the economicRead More disaster that follows could be nearly impossible to recover from. You don't play politics with the debt ceiling and not raising it would be downright irresponsible. It doesn't mean we're spending more money, it means we're allowed to pay back the money we already owe and if we send a message to other countries that we can't pay our debt, not only would that be catastrophic to our own economy, it would also negatively affect the worlds economy, most notably countries that we trade with. We have always had to raise the debt ceiling and to tie it to fiscal responsibility is downright incorrect. The republicans have raised the debt ceiling 49 times, the democrats 29. Reagan himself said that the negative consequences of a default would be impossible to predict, in other words, there's no telling exactly how severe it could get. so why would we risk that?
