    The cost of living has been raised so high that both parents are always at work, rather than spending time with their children (single parents stand no chance) . Parents were told ‘No you can’t discipline your kids’. Well, now most of those kids are rude and out of control.

Despite the Democrats’ penchant for defending terrorists, aiding illegal aliens and thumbing their noses at counter-terrorists and police, law enforcement officers, intelligence community and the military are warning Americans to be aware of this plot by the Muslim Brotherhood and do everything in their power to prevent Islamic jihad from occurring on U.S. soil,

      The active duty military are not using lethal force. They have been using teargas and rubber bullets, and then only on people carrying out ILLEGAL acts. The LAW ABIDING “gun-toters” are at home minding their own business, while criminals loot and burn( you know, illegal stuff).

    All the states and cities (especially the deep-blue Democratic ones) are broke and begging for a bailout to survive. Close our businesses down for three lousy months and everything goes to hell. Taxpayers matter. Government doesn’t. Deep-blue Democratic cities and states, led by liberal mayors and governors who want to keep the economy closed forever, are the most destitute and desperate. Obama is proven a liar again. It turns out he didn’t build anything. Businessmen and businesswomen in the private-sector economy build everything and pay for everything the government does.

    Obama lied about Obamacare. Read his lips. He said, “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan.” That was the biggest lie ever told in the history of politics. The moment he told that lie, he was in possession of internal documents that projected over 90 million Americans would lose their insurance. He also said the cost of health insurance would go down dramatically. Instead, it went up dramatically.
