    With each passing generation more and more are brainwashed into believing socialism is a good thing by our socialist educational system. The result is an expanding base that believe in, and votes for, more socialism.

    Midalake,
    Does our Constitution mean anything to you? The pres. is supposed to uphold it not hold it up, How about GM, Chrysler, Banks, Illegal aliens, diverting NASA $$ to muslim countries, apologizing for Americas greatness, $4..0 gas and rising on purpose, 12%+ real unemployment etc........,

    Wow,I didn't realize so many on this site made over $200,000 a year.Because I belive even Romney feels those below that are in the 47% range.I'm over 60,retired,yes,from auto industry,and feel I do NOT ask for hanouts,but my income puts me in that 47% range.Romney just plain let it all hang out at an elite dinner,trying to impress his fellow millionaires.Not proper,but hey,what do you expect from a politician.He shouldn't try to undo it,it happened ,just like missing a bird,live with it.

    Like Ryan told "Plugs" the other night, "As you know, sometimes, in politics, words don't come out of your mouth right." Amen.

    Well said tigman,

    In simple terms, if the job requires sweat and physical exertion the left has labeled it "evil"

    Logging, mining, farming, energy are all evil

    computer, ipod, iphone, video games are all to be the answer to all our needs!

    Timber,

    With the obvious inclusion (to the thinker's in the crowd) that Computers, Ipod, Iphones and video games are all outsourced..to China! Just another way to give our hard-earned country over to the global cabal.

    Then let's add, the incredible shrinking dollar (lost 30% of it's buying power from fiat printing), intentional mis-information to facilitate self-enrichment (all the Demo leaders are 1%'ers, themselves - all have gotten richer since '08) And, my personal favorite - 72% of GM sales is going to political subdivisions, so we're paying for the GM bailouts a 3rd time.

    Sooooo let's all chant together; "we shall under-come, we shall under-come". A half-million dead and illegal voters can't be wrong? And, we must band together to keep the war-mongering military from voting. Our Demo state Attorney's General will see to that.

    IF Zero is scam-elected again, it's welcome to the Weimar-American Union.

    Damn!,
    Kip

    It's so sad to not seeing the youth pursuing the machine trades. I was the Human Resources Manager (now retired) with over 30 years of experience for a steel processing company and a company threading pipe for the oilfields. It was so difficult to find skilled trades people younger than myself and I'm well over 55. The attitude is the kids think this work is dirty and technically inferior to the digital age work requiring a college degree. Hey, many college degreed people have graduated and have to move back with Mom & Dad. This is sad because the skilled trades are to be respected and has provided a good income for so many. My brother works for a Gulf oil drilling equipment manufacturer in Houston, TX and has the same problem with finding qualified machinist. Machinist can find numerous jobs in the oilfields of N. Dakota, Texas and many other states. It's sad that we can't provide enough skilled workers for real jobs. If I'm wrong tell me? BT100dc

    BT-100, it's bad in all the trades, we can't find any for HVAC, plumbing and electricians and all of us old farts are getting too old to keep doing it

    Some of our HVAC techs gross right at or over $100,000, it takes a while to get that good but if you apply your self not that long

    BD they have really limited the shop classes because of safety, and it's all BS, I have a buddy that was the shop teacher in Plainview Tx the school board wanted to shut down his wood shop class, so he made the tools hand powered and it was okay then

    But he appealed to them and they decided their idea wasn't so bright, and he got to re-power the tools
