    i believe if our nation would give pres obama half a chance to do the things he proposes to help us to get out of the enormous hole gw bush left us in i believe he could another thing i also believe no pres goes into office as wise as when they leave so if he would request pres clinton to sit in on budget plans i think it wouldnt take as long to accomplish this after all he did leave office with surplus monies thank u for ur time

      Really? You have no clue to how the government really works, you just listen to partisan rhetoric and accept it for gospel. Try reading, look up the facts for yourself on the govenment OBM website and see for yourself. I wish both sides wuold just stick to the factual data and quit using outright lies and exaggerations. And I wish the news agencies would force them to do so...You see they all think that we are all weak-minded and uneducated. Please...prove them wrong for once

      Hasn't anyone figured out that Obama could run the country if Congress wasn't running. Hello? The Republicans are running the show and you blame Obama. Pfft. Go eat a bagel or something while we talk true politics.

    If we go to look at how much we can cut in our budget and before we cut into the Social security and medicare we should look to cut one of Former president Bushs' changing the way regulates, tax, and fund charities and non-profit initiatives for religious organizations.In 2004 and 2005 recieved 2.2 Billion dollars. Shouldn't we cut where it will not hurt our seniors and poor. This legislation removed reporting requirements, which required organizations to separate their charitable functions from their religious functions.Federal aid goes to faith based organizations. We could also get rid of this part of the government could be shut down and have alittle smaller government. It saves more than if we take $500,000. from planned parenthood for 5 years. $2,200,000,000. Billion with a B. in 1 year.

    The media coverage on this Casey Anthony has been insane down south. Now it's everywhere. The really bad thing though is the amount of taxpayer's $'s that are being used for this. It's a heinous thing and to think what that poor child went through is a nightmare. Personally, I think they should just lock up the whole Anthony clan and be done with it. They are all involved in it, I'm convinced.

    But if you must, the best resource for following this (in my opinion) is following Marinade Dave's blog. Seriously. Haven't been to his site in awhile but it looks like he may have moved from WordPress to his own domain.

    Why are the royals trying to change the monach rules: I think because Prince Phillip married a divorcee and thats a no no Phillips father King George took over the Throne because his older brother married a american women her last name was Simpson. He was thrown right out of England, and the family. Now if this rule is not changed, Prince Phillip cannot
    become King & he wants that. Wifee dear wants to be queen. The only reason he married Diana was because he had
    to produce an heir. Unfortionatly nobody told Diana that her marriage was a farce. He never stopped seeing his honey,
    but the Queen knew. How sad that must have been for Diana
