didn't say a word as he went into the conference room to meet the General. As he
finished, the vehicles took him to the ClamShell (pretty much a big top tent that military personnel can play basketball or work out in with weights) so he could take his publicity pictures playing basketball. He again shunned the opportunity to talk to Soldiers to thank them for their service. So really he was just here to make a showing for the American's back home
that he is their candidate for President. I think that if you are going to make an effort to come all the way over here you would thank those that are providing the freedom that they are providing for you. I swear we got more thanks from the NBA Basketball Players or the Dallas
Cowboy Cheer leaders than from one of the Senators, who wants to be the President of the United States. I just don't understand how anyone would want him to be our Commander-and-Chief. It was almost that he was scared to be around those that provide the freedom for him and our great country.")
Female: "He definitely cares more about his image than anything else. That's
don't matter. If you want to change that, we need to kick a lot of folks out of Congress - especially any who have supported such stupid legislation as SB2433 or the Employee Free Choice Act (includes all Arkansas reps, I believe), and who have done nothing to fix the gas
price issue, such as authorizing drilling offshore and in ANWR. If they don't have the sense to do that, and party means more to them than their constituency so they support Democratic idiocy and Obama, we need to kick them out."
the world a BETTER place. Especially the media. I think we were better off in the 30s, 40s and 50s when we were in blissful peace without the media brainwashing us. I'm embarrassed to admit I went to school with those people that are in the media now."
their entire lives. The media (most of it) is enamored with the idea that government, with cool, "intellectual", non-religious, liberals in charge, can be parents to us all. That is the neurosis you are dealing with. Look at how many of them did what you did, and took the first opportunity to wean yourself off any dependence on your parents - how many are still living with or indirectly supported by someone else?"
that are still dependent on their parents, at 25-30. Sad. They need Big Brother. Always.
And...Big Brother scares me. Terribly."
the federal government - that bill, sponsored by Obama, would have us give 850B in aid over the next three years to the UN to distribute as those anti-American socialists see fit. We would also be placed under International law on subjects such as the environment, labor rules, etc.
So that when you vote you change or influence nothing, and the US government over time becomes a mere middle manager for the larger world government. These people want John Lennon's "Imagine" to be put in place, with no borders, nations, churches - what they don't realize is that when that happens, unless that world government is armed, omnipresent and ruthless, there will be anarchy and chaos. I won't even get into what happens to free speech and freedom of religion. Just remember that Bridget Bardot went to jail in France for saying the
muslims should shut up and quit rioting."
also be the first to yell and holler "where's my government?" "where's my freedom of speech?" "where's my protection?" when all hell breaks loose. I have decided I'm not personally going down w/out a fight. "

- Table manners. Children these days have none.
- Respecting authority/adults. Children these days have none.
- Earning privileges. Children these days believe they are entitled to everything they have and have to do nothing to earn the "fun stuff." Can you blame them? They have TVs, DVD players and video games in their bedrooms. They have personal laptops by age 5 and even cell phones!
There seems to be a huge trend on allowing the child to make decisions he or she is not capable of making. Children can't decide what is best for them UNTIL THEY ARE TAUGHT what is best for them. You don’t have to be a parent to see or know that. You don't have to be a parent to know that it is actually quite simple to make the little kid sit at the table and behave—or suffer the consequences. And this day and age, consequences do not have to be physically hitting a child (though I believe a good spanking works every now and then). It is highly likely that the kid has video games, DVD players, TV, or a cell phone. Start there. Take THAT away from him. Perfect consequence. You don't get what you want until you act the way that is expected of you. Some mothers just don't want to take any criticism (and it is usually constructive criticism offered up by--OTHER MOTHERS). I don't know, maybe they are afraid of how society will see them (but honestly--why would you care how society sees you if it is for the best interest of your child)? Parents don't want to nit-pick their children. Ok. But when your child has NO respect for authorities, NO respect for rules, NO concept of what is right or wrong and NO concept of how to treat other people (peers, siblings, adults, etc) I think you, as a parent, are WAY BEYOND the point of nit-picking. I think you are most likely headed down a very dark path once adolesence hits. I'd invest in some locks on your bedroom doors.So here's to the mothers that would rather be their child's friend than their child's teacher. And here's to us--those childless women in the world--may we learn how NOT to raise our children by the mothers shining examples!
