Why is it always all or nothing with you people?
Rights and Principles are funny that way. You either have them or you do not have them. There is no 'kinda principled' in life.
Yes. Its a shame that we put so much of our tax money into an educational system that yields professionals who do this to people.
1. Consumers in America are terrible. It is the only reason goods cost so much. Obama is right there.
2. As for his extreme spending--unless you are willing to use your life savings as kindling, his spending to keep the global economy afloat is why you aren't dead or starving. And if you are dying or starving you should probably be doing something other than posting here. Conservative economic philosophy is what made the Great Depression. Liberal economic philosophy (ie spend more so you don't have to start from scratch) would have curbed that catastrophe before you could spell shanty town.
Not having insurance is terrible consumerism. What is more important--you being entertained or your family being even more crippled because daddy got cancer from all the terrible food he eats? It's just greater proof of how terrible consumers people are. A man reaps what he sows and yet when his crop fails because he skimped on seed water and labor it is the worlds fault.
