    The federal government cannot, legally. We the people let them get away with violating the 9th and 10th Amendments and the Supreme Court makes rulings that dishonestly interprets the law to how ever they want it to mean. In other words, the executive and judicial branches act as they are the legislative branch and all three branches disregard the Constitution when it suits them.

    To those membes of Congress who feel they are underpaid, then resign. There is no shortage of people willing to take that job for even less money.

    Obama does know what he is doing, but he isn’t doing the job of president of the United States. I really don’t think Obama is interested in faithfully executing the laws of the United States. I believe he would rather not be bothered with international situations except where he can promote “equality” and “fairness”. Obama is only concerned about “equality” and “fairness” on a global scale with a belief that economics is a zero sum game.

    Sure, shoot the messenger rather than address the message. Is his message wrong? If it is, why not shoot at that? The Left attacks the Constitution saying the Framers were slave owners rather than pointing out what is actually wrong with the Constitution. This is because they don’t really have a good argument against the Constitution. So they have to create distractions from the real issues.

    How about a society that CHOOSES to be moral? The choices are not simply forced morality or unforced debauchery. You and way too many people make arguments based on false choices. Far too many times only two choices are presented when there are actually more available and that are better than the choices that are presented. The rhetorical technique of false choices it what politicians often use to corral us into going along with their bad idea.

    People need to choose moral behavior and start teaching their children moral behavior instead of getting their moral values from entertainment media. It is not about forcing morality on anyone like you suggest. Forced morality never works anyway. People must choose it on their own.

    Ugh. amerigirl, you don’t understand basic economics. Hiring isn’t only about the necessity of filling certain essential positions, it is about making more money if a person is hired. Why would you hire a person if that person is going to cost more than what the person produces? You wouldn’t unless you are a foolish business person or are forced to because of government regulations.

    If you want to go to a 4 day workweek and make the same money, your productivity has to go up, which is what computers greatly helped. But people would rather make more money than go to a 4 day workweek. I certainly do. For a company to pay more without having made more money would be foolish or forced to by law.

    There is nothing wrong with making a profit by legal and moral means. If you don’t make a profit you cannot expand your business and hire more people – putting more people to work and supporting more families.

    Free market capitalism (not crony capitalism) is a good thing. Employees work by choice. Free market capitalism is not feudalism where the workers are essentially slaves. If you don’t like the job don’t take it. If employers can’t fill the positions they have to make it more attractive. If someone else is willing to do the job that you are not, good for that other person. If you don’t like any available job then do your own business. Freedom is a great thing.

    This law is either a shot over the bow or an act of a Congress too cowardly to do their job. That job is to impeach the president for habitual violations of the Constitution. If a shot over the bow, the next step should be impeachment.

    This is the way it should be towards any president. I believe that is the way our system is supposed to work to prevent tyranny.

    It is certainly a very bad idea to get within striking range of the bad guy.

    The GOP needs to be both the opposition and show the way. If just a “positive” campaign is run, the Dems will promise the “oceans will stop rising and the Earth will heal”. (It is pretty amazing that no one called Obama on that.) In other words, they will just make bigger unverified assertions. The people need to be shown that utopia is the fantasy that it is. Conservatives must also show that Conservative principles are based on experience that has been effective, not untested ideology or failed experiments that supposedly only failed because not enough money was spent.

    Good young man. We need more like him.

    In my view, what she defines as Feminism 1.0 is inherently what we consider today a Conservative cause. It is for liberty and equal justice under the law. But Feminism 2.0 is some utopian movement. As all utopian movements are, it tries to deny and suppress human nature.

    According to a friend of mine that lives in Japan, the original intent of the capsule hotel makes perfect sense. They were originally not intended to be what one used a normal hotel room for. They were for people that were out late drinking and missed the last subway train of the night. Not coincidentally, capsule hotels are commonly located near subway stations.

    Gibson’s explanation doesn’t make sense to me. So, it makes more sense to stay do defend people who MIGHT be attacked where there is no indication there will be an attack than go and defend people who are definitely under attack? Perhaps I am dense but I don’t think that makes sense.

    A Labrador being aggressive? The breed is famously friendly, especially a service dog. It probably just wanted to greet the cop and be petted.

    To my eyes, that ad seems to be much more about selling alternative lifestyles than selling GM autos. I am actually ok with that as long as GM isn’t getting any more taxpayer money. Let GM take the consequences of their choices of using capital. If it causes them to thrive, more power to them. If it causes them to go under, then they didn’t deserve to be around. Sure, it is too bad for the people that will lose their jobs but that frees capital that was allocated ineffectively to be allocated to, hopefully, productive activities.

    Freedom can’t be made extinct. It will come back. But in the mean time it can be heavily suppressed and the people oppressed. People living in liberty is a small minority throughout history.

    I wonder if it is actually the government behind the ad. What business feels it is their business to directly promote “social change”? A business wants to sell as much of their product as possible. With the effective gov takeover of GM by the bailout, perhaps GM’s main product is no longer cars but furthering the gov’s utopian ideals.

    Speaking of Utopia, all the various proposed utopian societies are actually miserable. What thinking person would want to live in such a society unless one is part of the ruling class. It is an empty existence for everyone else.

    When I was in college I had a friend that was studying graduate astrophysics. He professed to be an atheist but he admitted to me that when he examines the universe and observes the beauty of it (not in the visual sense but in the artistic sense like a well performed play or musical composition), he has a hard time not believing that there is an intelligent being that created it.

    The puppy/Clydesdale was cute but my favorite is the Tim Tebow T-Mobile commercial. It is clever and it illustrated the point the product feature and it has a tie to football. But I enjoy the web version better than the version that actually aired.

    I am an American of non-White ancestry as is my wife. I speak three languages with American English being my first. My wife speaks two language and English is her second language. We agree with GoodStuff. Knowing English well is important for many reasons, not just for cohesive of the people. Communication in the workplace is always extremely important and should be. Communication between the government and the people is extremely important. Sure, voting materials are printed in languages other than English but are proposed legislative bills? For the Left to demand that voting materials be printed in other languages but not legislative bills suggests to me that they only care about the votes, not real participation in government by the non-English speaking. How much education is there being done about the founding principles of the United States in other languages? My guess is zero or next to zero. The Left only wants the votes of the non-English speakers, not their real participation.

    Multiculturalism is cutesy but it is a sham. It is meant to keep the people divided, ignorant, and more easily ruled.
