Lost greatness

Are we now living in a third world country? Our federal government is shut down, school bus drivers walk off the job with no warning, people out for an anniversary celebration are accosted and beaten for no reason, the city of Detroit is just one of many cities in bankruptcy, people are being killed at an alarming rate in Chicago | the list goes on and on and on. What have we lost, where did it go, and how do we get it back? How have we allowed these things to happen? Scary, isn’t it? Does anyone think we will ever reach our former greatness and courtesy or is it gone forever?

Time to go

Obama orders the Park Service to make the shut down as painful as possible. Armed guards disperse World War II veterans from seeing their memorial in an open air park! But Obama approves an illegal immigrant rally in the same closed park! Time to go, Barry.


I don’t think it is hypocritical to have a position you believe is right and be willing to adjust it only through a good faith negotiation. I do however think it is hypocritical to refuse to negotiate and say you are willing to but only if the items in contention are taken off the table. As the previous contributor notes there is definitely double-speak here but only by the president and current administration, in my opinion. Double-talk is so offensive to me and I would bet many others.
