“These are called "entry level jobs" meaning they arent meant to raise a family on. When we used to have a decent economy, these are the jobs that college and high school age kids worked. They arent "career" jobs to raise a family on. When does the individual ever have to accept some of the responsibility for having a family before they have a career that can support them. That isnt on McDonalds its on the worker. I'm not willing to pay 10 bucks for a Happy meal just so workers who feel entitled can raise a family on a cashiers wages.”

“HF just couldnt help themselves with their bias......"let killer go" . This was such an open and shut case it shouldnt have garnered such attention....Why didnt the media focus on all the killings in Chicago, like on the 4th of July weekend when there was a drive by shooting that killed 7 innocent black people who were merely going about their daily lives...could it be that that since the shooter was black it didnt fit the narrative the media and Al Sharpton want to portray this country as? Interesting HF and other media outlets like to show Trayvons 12 and 13 year old year old photos, not his 17 year old photos to try and distort the image and make it look like a scrawny little child was murdered by this huge hispanic fellow the media is portraying as white so it will help create the image of this racist, rotten country and fan the flames of riots.......”
“Yeah, man.............If we also legalized people coming to this country illegally that would lessen the strain on law enforcement- oh wait we are working on that now! If we legalized cocaine that would also lessen the burden as well as increase government revenue! On the other hand, making it legal may eliminate people like the KENNEDYS who got powerful from smuggling and distilling alcohol during the prohibition, so maybe you have a point........”

Yes, they would LOVE for you to grow it in your garden as they crave tax revenue to further fund their irresponsible spending. So, no it wont be free, that is a "pipe dream".”

“YOU don't understand !!!.
Since 2009, Obama FROZED ALL government employee wages ( NOT necessarily restricted to the political PEEMPS in Congress, but it also included them ).
It's correct, Obama signed an executive order lifting that restriction and it just so happens in this case, the HIGH TIDE is lifting ALL boats..

“Seems like you can always count on Obama to do the wrong thing.”
“LAUGH- You are keeping a stright face when claiming Obama is for LESS spending? Are YOU KIDDING? He has skillfully kept the eyes on the "fiscal cliff" so no one notices all the new Obama care taxes kicking in this year. Oh yes, I did some fact checking, from the Governments own GAO, Yes, VERY clear how much of an increase in spending we have had under this guy. MORE than all the others......COMBINED!!!@!@ Now he claims If we just had ANOTHER stimulus bill(so I can repay my favors I owe for the election) The economy will grow- Just like it did the last 2 times?”
“My kids all use the same excuse as you...."Everyone else is doing it too." So does that make it right, to keep a Government that spends beyond its means? Why does most in this country keep thinking that we can defy the laws of physics (spending more than we have)? You could confiscate all rich Americans assets and get us about 1 more weeks worth of spending. Be real, we are really talking about taking more money from anyone in this country who works for a living, which, under this administration is becoming less and less. The only growing sector is Government, but those jobs are a net loss to the economy.”
“They are just pointing out that, once again, there is a double standard. Did you see any headlines about Nancy Pelosi's dated pansuit with stains on it and putty caked all over her cragged, surgically manipulated face? If they did I doubt you would be out this am defending those headlines.”
“Gee, I notice once again how their is a double standard on the left. If an article appeared about say, Hillary's pansuit and caked on cremes and strangely tweezed eyebrows last night you would all say how hateful to women the right is! When was the last time you complained about a political man's ensemble? HMM. Your very headline is sexist- which apparantly is always ok to be sexest or bigoted ONLY when you are targeting a conservative. I find it strange how whenever a conservative woman gets a chance at power the left goes intensely after them out of fear they wont have the "they dont put woman in power" arguement. The dems spend a fortune to keep a conservative woman/minority from getting elected into a senate or house seat because of how afraid they are that people will see there are women and conservative minorities and women and that might make voters stray from the democrat "plantation"”

Its all about trying to keep musicians and actors "on the democrat plantation" and make others afraid to come out of the closet and admit they actually have common sense and are conservative. Its amazing how we are all preached to about tolerance when it comes to gay, transgeneder, etc but then its OK to go after a conservative.”

“Under Bush gas was $1.77 in my town after 8 years of him and the media claimed gas was sooo expensive because Bush/Cheney and their oil buddies were gouging. After 4 years of this current clown's administration gas has more than doubled- and yet no cries from the media about the price of fuel. Obama states he is comfortable with 8 bucks a gallon. He's probably comfortable with that since he personally has never paid for anything. He HAS NEVER HAD A REAL JOB and as such has lived at the US taxpayer's expense (during the years he actually resided in America). Romney has actually started businesses like Office Depot and has employed thousands of Americans. He has gotten wealthy because he took risk and EARNED it. My question is, with all the liberals pre occupied with Romney EARNING a lot of money, why is is that they are never worried about Obama, who HAS NEVER WORKED ANYWHERE in the real world, getting rich when he has only been a government official? THAT is MUCH more disturbing common sense would dictate.”
TennesseeTruth on Aug 26, 2012 at 13:58:39
“Your memory is faulty. Gas prices peaked in some areas to $5.00 and reached $4.00 in many parts of Tennessee in Summer of 2008. Let's not forget the stock market failure (many lost life savings and their children's college fund). Let's not forget the housing bust. Forclosure reached a peak. This all happened during Bush's administration. This is the reason Obama won with such a large popular vote and electorial vote, people were fed up with Bush and the republicans.”
Burt65 on Aug 26, 2012 at 13:56:47
“So, you base your whole analysis of the state of the nation on the price of gas? A variable that the Potus has virtually no control over or effect on? With voters like you at the helm your nation will get exactly the leadership it deserves, which is unfortunate for the many otherwise intelligent Americans who also have to live with your narrow minded, self serving, shallow, gredy choices.”
AllenD on Aug 26, 2012 at 13:42:30
“The only reason gas fell to $1.77/gal at the end of Bush's term was because Bush and his ilk caused the global economy to collapse. I remember gas prices being north of $4.50/gal during the summer of 2008. Elect Romney and gas may well fall below $2 gal again. Of course, that would also mean a collapse of the global economy.”

“All well and good......but the biggest reason many think we've never been there is the fact that we've never gone back. Where else in human history has mankind failed to exploit a new discovery? Could you imagine Columbus discovering the new world and no one bothering to EVER go back? And don't say it costs too much because the Governemtn just spent a trillion in stimulus that no one knows where exactly it went so obviously money is no object when it comes to the government. I'm not saying I am one who doesn't beleive we have never been there but the fact that we never went back is a little odd and inexplicable when you look at mankinds history.”

“Except for the fact that 10 of the 19 Apollo missions went to the moon and 6 of them landed and did experiments and took samples.
We have had no reason to go back, it is extremely expensive and there is really nothing there that we need to go back for.
The stimulus was paid back with interest, that's not a luxury you an expect from a moon landing mission.
It's not odd at all that we didn't go back, why would we? We were there 6 times and gathered as much information as we needed.”

“Actually, people who bother to pay attention to facts and reality and evidence know exactly where it went: to creating 3 million plus jobs. That we have evidence of. I saw that little fibbing RNC commercial where they claim that we've lost 500,000 jobs since the Stimulus, which is flatly untrue, except for the public sector job cuts that the same RNC demanded which they're now trying to blame the President for even though it's their policy and they did it.”

“Yeah, Now, instead of "It's Bush's fault" you've moved on to "It's Romney's fault!" When is it ever going to be Obama's fault? Also- NEWS FLASH TO YOU- The US has historically gotten rooked by judges who are anti American, remember the 1972 Olympics when USA beat the Soviet Union in basketball and then the judges decided to put more time on the clock and give the Soviets a "do over?" Remember when USA got jobbed out of the gold medal in boxing when the olympics were in Korea? The US has been victimized by judges for years- you don't need to blame Romney for heaven's sake!”

“totally agree. I have two children who passed away during their birth. I had taken care of myself, had good prenatal care. Never so much as ate chocolate (which is ok during pregnancy I was just being extra careful) some might say I should feel sorry for this "mom" but sorry I don't. I'd never drink while taking care of my baby. That is mindless stupid careless, perhaps she loved the bottle more than her baby. I doubt Nancy grace's interview had much to do with her suicide, knowing she caused the death of her child would have been enough to throw her over the edge.”

“This isn't about abortion which many people do not consider murder. Another day, another story for that one.
It is about this woman's tragic life and its ending, caused by who knows what. When someone is significantly depressed they do things to self medicate such as drinking, drug abuse, etc. They also kill themselves. Words such as those that Nancy Grace uttered may or may not have been enough to push this woman over the edge. She should have been off the air a long time ago. She is rude and inflammatory and often plain wrong.
As for mom rolling over on top of her baby, yes, it did occur. But deaths like these occur when parents and babies sleep together. Not all of them are alcohol related. I am sure some are, as hers was. In any event it is not murder, but a tragic accident.”
RobH413 on Jul 12, 2012 at 14:24:58
“Oh, boy. Before you mount the high horse, you should make sure there is a saddle on it.
A homicide is the killing of a person. A DUI that kills a person is a homicide and is typically charged as vehicular homicide or vehicular manslaughter. Same thing. It is based on a lack of intent to kill, but a level of negligence that rises to the level of criminality. If I make a mistake and run through a red light and someone gets killed, I am negligent and civilly responsible for the death but we dont send people to prison just for making mistakes. If there is an intentional act that leads to a death (forseeable but not intended), you then have criminal culpability, though less than you would if you intentionally killed someone. Manslaughter is homicide. This case WAS charged as a homicide - second degree manslaughter.”

“in a car its called 'vehicular homicide' or criminally negligent homicide or manslaughter --things like that --means its different from having INTENT to kill anyone --still an accident but adjudicated differently because of the KNOWN dangers of drinking and then driving
getting drunk and sleeping with ones baby is not against the law --getting drunk and then driving IS --see the difference now?”
