@Smilee I think you'd better talk to people who live in Britain and Canada and ask them how great their health care system is.  It doesn't matter if the insurance and health care is less expensive if the care is WORSE.  Long lines in doctors' offices, long waits for urgent medical needs, denials of urgent and necessary medical needs based on some arbitrary formula on whether it a certain person is "worth" spending money on.... those are common in Britain and Canada.  That is not better health care.

@popham I agree.  Unfortunately, it took about 20 years to get from Roe v. Wade, which allowed only first trimester abortions except in extreme situations, to allowing 3rd trimester abortions.

It's going to take some time to scale it back, so we start with not allowing late term abortions.  

As we get more and more technological advances (especially with birth control methods), the less and less even most pro-abortion advocates will have an excuse for abortion.  Then, only the most rabid abortion proponent will be for abortion, and they will be in the minority.

@shamwil The last time blacks were brought to America to be slaves was 1808.  Slave importation was outlawed then.  From 1808 to 1865, all slaves were born here.  That was over 200 years ago.  Slavery was terrible and wrong, but it is over, and has been over for over 150 years.  There is no one alive today that has been a slave nor a slave owner. 

Yes, slavery happened in America.  It was bad. It does not happen anymore, nor has it for over a century.  My people were slaves in Egypt and you don't hear them whining about it.  Get over it and get on with your life.   This dwelling on the past that has been rectified is poisoning your mind and keeping you from doing better things.  I know you have it in you to do great things; we all do.

@shamwil Yes, shamwil, it is partly the education system's fault, but not for the reasons you claim.  Any child can pass the standardized test if he tries to learn and if the school system will teach him.  There are a lot of blacks who have started out very poor and have pulled themselves up from their bootstraps to be at least middle-class.  They didn't sit around feeling sorry for themselves, blaming everyone else for their situation.  They took responsibility for themselves, and worked hard to make something of themselves!

The reason the education is failing the blacks is because in predominately black neighborhoods, the schools don't teach the kids at their own grade level, so the entire school can get more money for special education.  They don't have as high standards for the black kids because people have accepted that black kids don't do well. There is no excuse for this.  Black kids can do as well as anyone.

@GrumpyOldMan,Ron Paul actually said that he was not spending time wooing voters; he was spending time getting delegates at the State and County Conventions, so he could have as many delegates as possible at the RNC Convention.

Here is a website detailing the plan of some Ron Paul delegates to vote for Ron Paul, no matter what their constituents want.  http://ronpauldelegates.wordpress.com/

I have NEVER been able to vote for the candidate of my choice in the primary.  By the time the primary gets to my state, my candidate has already dropped out.  There is something wrong with that.  It is not allowing all people of that political party to choose who they want to nominate.

I was a delegate at my state convention, and witnessed the tactics of the Ron Paul delegates.  One delegate from my district got nominated to deliver the people from our district to represent us at the national convention.  Instead of delivering our vote as we had decided, she put in the name of a man who lost (and who was a Ron Paul supporter).  

Also, the whole attitude and demeanor of the Ron Paul supporters was very rude and disruptive.  They did not want to follow the rules of the convention. Why doesn't Ron Paul tell them not to act like this?  He was at the convention.  He even gave a speech. Yet, he did not.

@Evermyrtle@DMJ@GrumpyOldMan@James Star@BobE@DE NavarroI have some theories, vermyrtle.  One is that some blame all Jews and their descendants for the actions of some Jews over 2000 years ago for what happened to Jesus.  Not all Jews of that time condemned Jesus to death, but some like to lump all Jews into that group.  

Second, there are some radical religions that hate all that are not their religion.  Although Muslims are the first that come to mind, they are not the only ones.

Third, jealousy.  Jews, as a group, are hard-workers, wise businessmen, and responsible people. For this reason, they have a high success rate.  Those that don't have success are envious. They also tend to choose careers that earn a lot of money, so they are well-off.  Those that don't earn as much, are envious.

The Left is very good about camouflaging what they really want because they know most people don't want it.  When they get a majority in both Houses and the Presidency, that is when they show their colors.  That's when they lose a lot of seats in Congress during the mid-term election.  That's when they find out most Americans don't want their liberal utopia, so they start being sneaky again.

@mandrake1348 From what you describe, your sons do have ADHD.  It is an idiosyncrasy of people with ADHD that they can hyperfocus when they are really interested in something, to the exclusion of anything else going on around them.  Some people think this proves that the person doesn't have ADHD, but this is an incorrect assumption.

The problem with what your ex-wife did was that she probably had the kids on too high a dose of medication (I assume Ritalin), and then didn't raise them to be responsible. It wasn't the "theories" that destroyed your life; it was a lazy mother who thought she could just subdue her children with medication and forget raising her children.   Even if your children didn't have ADHD, they would have these problems if raised with no standards!

@patriot53 @DMJ I raised a son who has ADHD and have several nephews as well who also have it.  I also have two children who do not have this condition.  Having raised three children, I too, know the difference between real trouble and fake trouble. I can tell you, without a doubt, that ADHD is NOT fake.  I think there are a lot of kids who are incorrectly diagnosed with this condition, but that is another story.  Just because some are mis-diagnosed does not mean that there aren't some who do have it.

I have never made excuses for my son's behavior nor let him get away with bad behavior, even if he couldn't help it.  To do so would be handicapping him for life.  I had the same standards for him as I had for my two children who didn't have ADHD.

Even before I discovered my son had ADHD, I knew something was drastically different with him and he needed help to overcome it. Once I was able to identify what he had, I was able to find ways to help him..

My son had trouble with controlling his impulses until he was 12, and it wasn't for lack of trying, either.  He also had and still has trouble being organized and completing tasks.  To this day, he has an amazing amount of energy.  Because I told him that he had to overcome the obstacles and difficulties of ADHD and not to use it as an excuse, he is now a very responsible young man in control of himself.  Most people don't even know he has the condition. 

But to say that his difficulties do not exist is to deny reality.  You can call it another name, but the condition is still the same.  An excellent book that discusses this, and other difficulties some children have, is "The Difficult Child" by Stanley Turecki.  In the ADHD section, it describes the difficulties that these children have and what to do to help them.

@patriot53 I agree; everyone needs to stop having per-marital sex. As for your acquaintance who gets seriously ill when she gets pregnant, IF she gets pregnant again: she should have the doctor induce labor immediately when she finds out she's pregnant.  No need to inflict pain on the developing baby; just induce labor and omit the dismembering, stabbing and other heinous acts that are committed today in the name of "reproductive freedom".

If she hasn't done so already, this woman needs to have her tubes tied immediately since it is obvious she cannot carry a baby to term.

@BobE @Bill Senior First of all, the majority of American people did not elect Obama in a landslide.  Of the people who voted in the 2012 election, only 51% voted for Obama.  He got less votes in the 2012 election than McCain got in 2008.  Voter turnout was only 57%, which means that only a little over one-fourth of eligible voters voted for Obama.  Hardly a majority of support.

Second, we don't want Obama removed because we think he is a Kenyan Muslim communist.  We want him out because he has violated the Constitution multiple times, and covered up at least two major abuses of power.  All those are crimes, and no one is above the law in America, no matter what anyone thinks.

It is NOT a fictitious disease!  That it is being over-diagnosed, I can agree with.  But there are some people that do have ADHD.  There are several members of my extended family that has this condition and most are not on Ritalin.  They have just learned the difficulties caused by this condition and learned how to deal with them.

@john811c @OLDAD There's no use starting the impeachment process right now.  Yes, the House of Reps will impeach the President, and then the Senate will clear him of all charges.  

We need to see what the results of the 2014 election are to see if we get a majority in the Senate.  If we do, THEN we can start impeachment proceedings and then convict Obama.  It's the conviction that gets him out of office.  As we saw with Bill Clinton (and more than a century ago with Andrew Johnson), impeachment isn't enough; it's the conviction that kicks the President out of office.

@CodyFlecker @JaclynBarnes @Edward53 Cody, a person must be born in the United States to be a citizen at birth. His parents do not necessarily have to be citizens.  That is called a "native born citizen". At least that is how it is interpreted today.

However, a different level of citizenship is required for a person to be President.  In order to be President, a person must have been born in the United States AND his parents must have been citizens when he was born.  That is called a "natural born citizen".

The distinction is very important.  The Founders wanted to make sure that the President did not have any divided allegiances.  It could be very dangerous for the President to have an allegiance to another country, especially if war breaks out with that other country.  The President must unequivocally have allegiance to this country and ONLY this country because he is given so much power.

@RobertHayesHalfpenny It's not attacking the Obama girls to question their excessive vacations on our dime.  That is questioning their parents for sending them on such vacations.  It is OUR money, after all that is paying for these vacations.  If the Obamas would pay for everything on these vacations, including the pay of the Secret Service agents, the planes, the gas,etc., then it wouldn't be an issue.

@CodyFlecker@SkyeADG@bcluks NIce try in trying to pin the Conservatives like the Nazis.  It's not us that is fanning the Race Warfare.  It's Mr. Obama , Jesse Jackson, Eric Holder and their crowd that continually fans the flames of race warfare, class warfare, anything warfare.

Obama routinely denigrates rich people, conservative people, successful people, people who don't agree with him, any person who is Black, Hispanic or a woman who is conservative and religious people (clinging to their guns and their Bibles).

The only reason people mention Obama's biracial make-up is because his supporters routinely claim that we don't like him because he is Black. This is just done to attempt to bully dissenters and get them to shut up.

It's an old tactic of Governments to get the citizenry divided so they don't notice what the Government is doing.

@CodyFlecker @bcluks Not true.  People also had cannons, swords, grapeshot, blunderbusses, long knives and daggers, bayonets and sabers in addition to the flintlock rifles and single shot pistols.  These were the state-of-the-art weapons of the day.  The ordinary person had the same firepower as the military.

The Founders specifically wanted the citizenry to have the same firepower as the military so the people could prevent tyranny of the government.

@SkyeADG @CodyFlecker @bcluks Actually, IMO, it would be illegal for an amendment repealing the 2nd amendment to be brought forward.  To do so, would be infringing on the rights of the people to keep and bear arms, which the 2nd Amendment forbids.

The first ten Amendments were meant to be set in stone forever.  To infringe on any of these rights would be defeating the purpose of our country (to ensure freedom and liberty).

@texaselect Fine, then you and other like-minded individuals can put your money where your mouth is.  YOU start a fund for children who "don't have food at home for lunch", and you supply lunches for those kids.  I, for one, know that there will be several that don't truly need any assistance and will take advantage of you, because that is human nature and unfortunately more so now than in the past.

On a personal note, for at least half of my children's childhoods, my family earned just above the poverty level.  People who earned just slightly less than we did, lived better than we did because they got all the freebies - free breakfast and lunch, food stamps, etc.  We were just "doing our best", just like the family that you described above.  Somehow, my children always had enough to eat, had clothes to wear and a house to live in.   How did we do it?  We were very careful with our money, I cooked from scratch, bought our clothes from thrift stores and garage sales, mended our clothes, used coupons, used unit pricing to determine the best price on groceries, and we fixed our own cars.

 If we can do it, then why can't these other families?  My guess is that they are living too expensively for their means and that is why they don't have enough food.

I think the point of this article is not that we should be prying into the Obama children's lives.  He is asking why it okay to pry into the Newton families' lives but not the Obama's children's lives.  Why do his children deserve privacy but not the families of the dead Newtown children?  It's a double standard.

There should be no school lunch program.  All kids should bring their lunches from home.  Those who currently qualify for "free lunches" (i.e., subsidized lunches), are most likely on the food stamp program.  Their parents can get their groceries from the store with those food stamps and then pack their kids a lunch.  

This completely eliminates the cost of paying cafeteria staff and the cost of the cafeteria equipment and associated costs.

@DavidLeoHeatherly @ashforkdan @whisperatnight The Founders did not mean regulated by the Government!

Govt. to regulate the militias, when the purpose of the militia and the 2nd amendment was so the People could defend themselves against tyranny of their government. How exactly are the militias supposed to defend the People and put down a tyrannical government if the government controls the militia?

@Joy JObama was re-elected because most incumbents win.    It goes along with the idiom, "Better the devil you know, than the devil you don't know".

'Going back 17 Presidents (to McKinley), 10 have won re-election.  2 could have won re-election, but they were assassinated, so to be accurate with the statistics, 10 of 15 Presidents won re-election . Of the ones that didn't win re-election, 2 were assassinated (Kennedy and McKinley),  one was facing the worst economic times the U.S. had ever faced (Hoover), one was never elected in the first place (Ford),  another was so inept and uninspiring that even Democrats couldn't get enough enthusiasm going to get enough votes (Carter) and another broke his promise of "No New Taxes" and then went back on that promise which infuriated Republicans. Plus his New World Order speech was creepy.(George H.W. Bush).


So there you have it.  Statistics show that Obama was re-elected due to incumbent advantage.

Evermyrtle, Mitt Romney is Christian.  He believes that Jesus is the savior. You may not like the sect of Christianity that he is, but that doesn't mean that he isn't Christian.

As far as Herman Cain, he was my first choice.  He did not do what his accusers said he did.  It was such an obvious lie to anyone that dug a little under the surface of the "story".  The reason this was done was because the Obama campaign knew that Herman Cain could defeat Obama in the election.

In my county, several mortgage loan transfers were not recorded.  The homeowners were not notified that their mortgages were sold to another mortgage company and they kept paying the original mortgage company.  Then, the homeowners started getting foreclosure notices from companies they never even heard of.  Our county clerk estimates the county lost $1 million in recording fees.

Great article!  The only part I have a problem with is letting insurance companies sell across state lines.  As it is, the Supreme Court said that the Federal Govt. has no jurisdiction to control health insurance because all insurance is intrastate commerce.  The Feds only have jurisdiction if it is interstate commerce.  If the insurance is sold across state lines, then it will be interstate commerce and the Feds can get involved.  Don't open that can of worms!

Fortunately, it is very hard to add an amendment to the Constitution.  First, the bill has to get a 2/3 majority vote in both houses of Congress and then 3/4 of the states have to ratify it.  Seeing that there are currently 26 states that sued the Federal Government over Obamacare, I'd say that it is pretty safe to say that there is no way that 38 of the states are going to ratify a bill that will allow Obama to serve a third term.

You are absolutely right. If you look into the history of public education, the whole reason for it was not to give children a good education. It was to indoctrinate the masses and teach them to be "good little citizens" who do what their government leaders tell them to do. The leaders and the elite never planned to send their children to public schools, on the other hand. Those kids were to go to private school and learn how to rule the masses.

The problem with public education is not new. Several years back, my local newspaper ran an editorial article from 1945. It was an editorial on how we need to reform our public schools.

Nullification seems to be the only way to go. Our leaders will never let it go, as it gives them more power.

The Founders were "extremists" in their time. It was very extreme and radical to think that people belonged to themselves, not a king or emperor, and that they should have the freedom to run their own lives as they saw fit. Prior to the U.S., people were subjects of their countries' rulers, and those rulers had no or few constraints.

If we really are extremists and radicals as the Left claims, then we are in very good company and we are on the right side.
