      No you cannot stop corporate america from buying america, look at Wisconsin, Brown said there would not be any layoff if they gave up Union benefits, Union agreed to give up benefits to help the state, then he put in taking of bargaining rights, now he already had their money why their rights? Because if the republican voters do not start realizing that corporate america is making us into a 2 tier system, the have and have nots by taking away the only thing that gave us rights as workers. They say they will be generous and give it, but isn't that what the coal miners, oil worders, and car manufacturers had to fight for. The foxes like Koch Bros. Walmart and countless other corporations on daily basis tell their workers you don't need unions we are great to you. Propaganda and BS, they make absorbant amounts of money and buy the seat of republicans who believe capitalism is all their is, not for you and me regular Joe and Janes, if you keep up the votes for republicans you vote against the middle class and for oil rich non tax paying. They will always throw in the gay or abortion card to get the religious right going, all the while stealing any right or any benefit that was ever bargained for. Who has the slick tongue?

    Wow, look at all the snacks! Michelle Obama is clearly being hypocritical by demanding that our nation's children work harder and eat less while her own brood sits around eating and watching television on a Sunday afternoon, living the high life on the backs of the American people.

    (You get 5 points if you correctly guess whether I'm being serious or sarcastic!)

      I'm guessing you're one of the 48% of people who don't actually pay any income tax in this country, so STFU.

      Looks like a healthy snack of tomatoes and greens. I believe she said don't ever think you will always eat healthy. It is funny how a first lady chooses to tackle a problem of fat america and the republicans have a hard time even supporting a good cause of Democrats. Sounds as if they have republicanitis, cannot disguise hatred even when something is good.

    I like how they seem to be trying to hide their beer and wine behind themselves. Anyways, my main question is how they are possibly concentrating on the soccer game when there's someone there photographing them. If I'm watching sports, everyone better get out of the way cuz it's sports only time.

      Wahhhh. Wahhhh. You are not the only ahuh person that can have free speech. Your comments are not based on fact. Must have hit a nerve, which seems you have none. You cannot debate anything I have said, so you revert to verbal harassment. Sad,sad little lonely troll.
