      you go out of your way to berate somenoe who just said s/he's been unemployed for a long time and totally broke because they weren't sufficiently adoring to your dear friend the POTUS?

      Jesus, this fucking place.

        ...But I did get a $10/hr 6-7 hr a week job so not technically unemployed now.

        However, If I had the answers and or his power I would be doing more even if it was only charging those who crapped out the economy in the first place.

        But in reality I would be cutting the defense department.  I mean really cutting it even if people do earn a living off it.  The return on investment for guns and bombs is really crappy compared to even pure research.

      •  I am really getting sick of... (0+ / 0-)

        ...this 'powerless president' meme people keep putting out there when people criticize the president.  I know he is not a miracle worker but he has more power than he is using.  He just doesn't want to be tagged as the uppity black man even though they do it to him anyway.
