    I disagree on both accounts. Governments are essentially businesses, and they can fail if deficits are continually greater than assets. I am not much of a fan of Romney, but his success in business tells me that he is successful in financial ways of conducting business and that he knows when dumping money on something is not beneficial.

    The 2006 election is history. I know that I am better today then I was in years past in many aspects. The same is true of Romney. Obama seems to be stuck in a Socialist agenda with an overbearing disdain for the U.S. of A. being such a great nation and Americans being good citizens of the world.

    The logic of the illogical...

    Say you buy a company that's in trouble. You analize the problems it has, you remedy the problems. You hire a new executive, sales and manufacturing staff. You stay long enough to make sure everyone knows the plan. You develop a five year business plan that if followed is a map to success. You leave the company and it explodes with success, hiring hundreds of people to fill the orders. You can't take credit for those hires?

    Yes, if the failures after said individual leaves are his responsibility also.

    What matters is the net gain or loss of employment. Romney has quite a net gain of Americans employed in the private sector, where they will be the most beneficial to the economy. In contrast, Obama has a net loss of all Americans employed, and an even greater loss in the private sector. Obama's only gain for employment is in the public sector, where their employment is a burden on our economy.

    Overall, since Obama has taken office, the U.S. has many more workers who burden the economy than those who are benefitting the economy. Every job that Obama "creates" in the public sector is another nail in the coffin of the economy.

In my book, "None of the above" is as just and viable --and guilt free-- an option, as any currently out there.

    My God does not have a flat spot on His forehead from continually facepalming himself, saying, "I can't believe that guy is getting away with all that...". Nor is He anxiously wringing His Hands wondering who is going to get the big prize in November or whether this Republic survives another 10 years.

    Like Him, I'm waiting on His Church, to see what it's going to do now. If those plans don't include confession, repentance and seeking His Face quick, fast and in a hurry, I can assure them with full confidence that, regardless of their political aspersions, leanings and ideologies, the next four years are going to be filled with much weeping and gnashing of teeth.
    So, are you saying that Obama is bad but you don't know what Romney is? Do you doubt his belief in God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit?

    Your post was kind of hard to follow/interpret...

    That's a huge lie, look on this site, but forget the article. Look at the graph from department of labor statistics. The increase under Obama in the federal government has been in Homeland Security, other Federal law enforcement, Veterans Affairs, and military. This has been more than offset from reductions in other branches of the goverment.

    Actually, we went to the moon and found out it was not made of cheese. That's why we haven't bothered going back to the moon....The power of cheese!

    This past week, Obama commemorated Neil Armstrong's being the first man on the moon by posting a photo of himself looking at the moon;

    This is accompanied by a short statement from the President: “Neil’s spirit of discovery lives on in all the men and women who have devoted their lives to exploring the unknown – including those who are ensuring that we reach higher and go further in space. That legacy will endure – sparked by a man who taught us the enormous power of one small step.”

    Interesting words from Obama, since his administration has just about insured that the U.S. space program is dead.

    Actually...while those might be the obams words the photo thing is just some jackass with some time on his hands.

    http://barackobama.tumblr.com/post/3...in-all-the-men

    The above website is where the photo and the story originated. Clearly a blog site someone with some talent.....and time on their hands....probably doing this at work.....lol put together.

    I wish I had the time to do something like that...... at one time I used to post "news" articles on forums and I would use a reuters or AP tag at beginning of my "story"..... it was pretty effective 10-15 years ago.

    I just dont have time to dream up and build fake blog sites..... I cant even get around to making one for myself and my pictures of my woodworking and blacksmithing adventures.

    The people who make stuff up like this are actually the ones who are s******* all over neil armstrong, his family and his memory.

    RoBoTeq, Did you think you could pull a fast one by changing your lying post? Above is your exact post you put up on 01-13-2012 12:47 PM. Computer memory is great, and yes I record what I post to. BTW would this be a Violation of board rules, for a Moderator to change post after they are replied to?
