In response to Godvernment's comment:
Mark this day. For the first time in history, a Democratic president has officially proposed to cut the Democratic Party’s signature New Deal program, Social Security: President Obama next week will take the political risk of formally proposing cuts to Social Security and Medicare in his annual budget in an effort to demonstrate his willingness to compromise with Republicans and revive prospects for a long-term deficit-reduction deal, administration officials say.
In a significant shift in fiscal strategy, Mr. Obama on Wednesday will send a budget plan to Capitol Hill that departs from the usual presidential wish list that Republicans typically declare dead on arrival. Instead it will embody the final compromise offer that he made to Speaker John A. Boehner late last year, before Mr. Boehner abandoned negotiations in opposition to the president’s demand for higher taxes from wealthy individuals and some corporations.
And I believe it was a 2 term Republican that put this Country in 2 Wars and we are still looking for the supposed Weapons of Mass destruction-Oh well at least Bush/Cheney and friends profited from the NO-BID Military and Construction Contracts,(Iraq) and the hush-hush pocket payouts from Big Pharma to said group for the Heroin Supply,(Afghanistan = 75 percent of heroin-poppy fields), to make Billions on the Pain Meds being sold in the USA--stick with Football dude you embarrass yourself!!!!! BTW I would tend to believe most, if not all our elected officials are somewhat corrupted to varying degrees. "Power Corrupts, Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely".
i dont think ricky is a republican.
the rest of your info of course is spot on.
except for the power thing. there are leaders of other countires who are not making billions on genocide as we in the u.s. have been doing for years.
on edoes not necessitate the other. being born male does not mean one is powerless to NOT BE a rapist.
