    Don't you think that continuing the policy of lowering taxes while increasing spending will bring about change?

    Well, maybe not change, but more people in the street with hands out asking for it at least.

    Why, I see lots of change. Why in that very picture you posted there is proof of change - now he is wearing a flag pin.

    That being said, more spending is not change at all. But more spending on socialism is. And sadly people will not even be aware of what they have lost even when they have lost it - if they are lucky.

    For example, when congress was debating the income tax the opponents were aghast that in order to enforce it the fed would have to become very intrusive. They would need to be asking employers how much a person earned. Before that it was unthinkable that our government should get so nosy as to be that interested in our private lives. Today we debate whether or not they should put chips in all our cars so they can tax us by the mile instead of through toll booths.

    Oh yes, the flag pin. I bet it's burning his skin just wearing it, much like the devil wearing a cross pin.

    Obuma's handlers obviously told him he needs to have a more patriotic look to appease the right, so now he has flags everywhere. Here a flag, there a flag, everywhere a flag flag.

    I hear his bath towel is now a flag!

    I'll agree with that....

    Anywho, you didn't address the main topic of this thread.

    Avoidance, yet another trick in the bag of liberals.

    You know of someone besides Dems that have shown the experience to clean-up after Bush economic-debacles??

    Watch and learn......again!!

    :p

    (I know....I know....expecting "conservatives" to learn much-of-anything IS somewhat over-reaching.)​

    In no way did that address the statement. It was just an empty slam on Republicans, not conservatives. You lose.

    More left-wing radical garbage. If you were a teacher our schools would be worse off than they are now...

    I will, however, give you points for the All in the Family link, one of my favorite past times...
