It doesn't matter whether or not parents are too busy or unprepared. It is not the President's job to take of their responsibilities.
Thank you for enlightening me with the technicalities.
Thanks! One can only trudge through the scum at the HuffPo for so long before the lunacy starts to take hold. It is like a breath of fresh air being here.
So who has or will be throwing a Van Jones farewell party? I want in! It is nice to have something worth celebrating every once in a while!
What's up 9/12ers! It is good to be back. I just discovered this site.....
"Fear is the foundation of most governments; but it is so sordid and brutal a passion, and renders men in whose breasts it predominates so stupid and miserable, that Americans will not be likely to approve of any political institution which is founded on it. "
John Adams, Thoughts on Government, 1776
"No taxes can be devised which are not more or less inconvenient and unpleasant. "
George Washington, Farewell Address, September 19, 1796
"The basis of our political systems is the right of the people to make and to alter their Constitutions of Government. But the Constitution which at any time exists, 'till changed by an explicit and authentic act of the whole People is sacredly obligatory upon all. "
-George Washington, Farewell Address, September 19, 1796
"Your love of liberty — your respect for the laws — your habits of industry — and your practice of the moral and religious obligations, are the strongest claims to national and individual happiness."
George Washington, letter to the Residents of Boston, October 27, 1789
I think products would last longer. Our wants as consumers are quickly becoming second to the compliance with incredible amounts of regulation and rules that almost every industry has to endure in order to manufacture and sell products. They probably can't use materials that would be more durable and cheaper due to one enviromental concern or another....
Well I do think that the government needs to make sure that healthy competition is taking place, which is why I support anti-trust laws.
I agree, that really was a terrible way for Bush to exit office, admitting that he is abandoning the principles he believes in. What a shame...
I understand your point, I guess in my mind if you disregard the principles that the constitution was founded upon than you aren't really defending it, you are simply seeking to manipulate it into conforming with your agenda. I mean if you asked yourself whether or not the New Deal, the Fed, and other progressive programs (auto bailouts, cap and trade) fell in line with the principles of the constitution even if they weren't expressely forbidden by the constitution, you would be making a very tough case. But if it helps to clarify, than sure, we are defending the principles upon which the constitution was created.
