    todash...you are so right...they are not earning their paychecks...but their own constituents keep sending 'em back...
    because, of course, it's always the other guy who's messing it all up...not their guy...just ask 'em, they'll tell ya

    shippy...not sure how old a tyke you are...but prices have been going up on all that stuff since time immemorial...this is nothing new to obama...it is a cornerstone of capitalism

    i can remember the day when i could take ten cents into a store and come out with a bunch of candy i did not steal...
    my 1st gallon of gas cost around .75...and it's pretty much gone up every year since then...

    i watch a heck of alot of news shows..including business news shows...

    and, since before bush left office...everything was supposed to tank so bad, they were calling for a world wide depression, just as todash alluded to...

    the closer-to-clinton-esque-than-to socialism obama policies did help stem some of the worst of all that from happening as bad as it was being predicted by just about everyone...and all the independant news sources have been saying that for years.

    obama did, repeatedly, force his left wing to adopt more centerish policies on almost every item in their agenda...just ask them how much of thier policies they've even been able to even bring to the table...the entirety of the health care bill is a republican plan...

    sure, it ain't pretty: no one ever said anything like this would be; heck, the president has been saying since before he got elected the first time that it would a long, hard row to hoe...

    as to your stunning intellect...heck, from what i read...you're in the same boat as all the rest of us: a little rusty...a little leaky...but, it all floats down here !

    keep posting you thoughts...we'll keep posting ours, even if they diverge a little. that's what makes the new world so great...if we can all just agree to get along, in the end, everything will be just fine

    and, remember: don't sell yourself short - you can still put a sentence together...and that's more than 50% of the people anywhere on the 'net can do !


    sorry the economy hasn't come back for you yet...i really, sincerely hope it does...and soon...good luck

    OK didn't wanted to post this in the Cantina thread cause it's Valentines Day today. But after the School shooting threat they
    got in Koupio yesterday and all police survey, seems like all got crazy in this country. Four school got shooting threat yesterday and
    some school had to keep their door closed today because of this and all of the school where the threat had been confirmed had to
    have police survey today. What is wrong with people. They seems not understand, that it's serious stuff we talk about and nothing
    to kidding with. Makes me angry when I think of it. Three of the school that got the threat, was about 24 miles (40km) from my hometown and
    one of the school was in the town where my sister study now. Let's hope people calm down here in Finland and nothing serious happen.
    All the threat had been wrong alarm of course but police had to be sure.

    Definitely worth reading! Probably the most effective method to stop another tragedy as seen at Sandy Hook. I would support it for our schools in a heartbeat!

    I'd pull my kids out of that school instantly.

    After the ****storm following a teacher testing a taser in her classroom, I doubt that many parents will send their kids to a school with armed teachers.

    Well we could continue with our Charge of the Light Brigade to regulate assault weapons and magazine sizes… which most experts say wouldn’t do a thing to protect our kids from a tragedy like Sandy Hook. Or we can actually do something to protect them. I say protect them! We have armed police at our schools, and they are almost never in the same location twice when I drop my kids off. I’d venture a guess that if someone wanted to do similar harm they would bypass our school and go instead to one that would be supported by some (not naming names) methinks, with devastating consequences.

    From my article... That is the kind of school I would want my kids to attend.

    From the other article... I doubt that substitute teacher would ever pass a reserve-officer-training program. But that teacher will someday get tenure, no doubt.
