This is just like the Old Testament. The people wanted a king SO badly instead of letting God lead them that God gave them what they asked for. It was the WORST thing that could have ever happened!! Problem here is that I didn't ask for a "king", I prefer to let God lead. I don't see people turning back to the Lord as the country collapses. Maybe that's because of the liberal media, but this country's getting more corrupt as the years go on!

AND if we don't put up a STRONG candidate next November, we're gonna get 4 MORE YEARS of this crap! The country will have completely gone to Hell by then!

COME QUICKLY, LORD JESUS!!

I can do this, with God's help!!!

With God, ALL things are possible!!

Now all glory to GOD, who is able, through HIS might power at work within us, to accomplish INFINITELY more than we might ask or think!
-- Ephesians 3:20

Read about this only a Socialist Democrat could get away with this, because the Media is in bed with him.

"A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government."

"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. "
Thomas Jefferson

The race card doesn't seem as if Obama is going to profit as much in the next election from that strategy, so he is falling back on another, older, more Democrat form of politics - just buy the vote.

I worked a 40 hour week as I struggled to get the right classes for my major. Yes, my mom and dad did let me still stay at home, but I also contributed to the food budget and I paid "rent" (It was less than the 1/5th I should have paid to be 100% equitable), but mom and dad were just happy I was showing the willingness to take responsibility for "me".

Do you think the Democrats have suddenly switched over to taking credit for the Civil Rights laws and ignoring the immigration laws because they have a real concern for illegal Mexican nationals in our country? Not a bit. If they can somehow get all of those crooks to be granted citizenship, all of their votes will swell the Democrat ranks so that never again will there be enough people to enforce our Constitution.

Just think, between 10 and 20 million new Democrat voters.

Please Lord, take me before that can happen.

it is just more of the same .... the 'entitlement' mentality of these people. Whether from mommy and daddy or the government. These people are railing about corporations and how bad they are ..... while they are tweeting, texting and posting on their ipads, & iphones, wearing all the north face, pantegonia, and other high end clothing, sleeping in and on high end gear, eating from 5 star restaurants for FREE while they "occupy" whatever state or site they deem worthy.Most of the 99% they claim to be fighting for can't afford all this stuff because they are being taxed to death supporting these idiots! What a bunch of spoiled hippocrates!! The sad part is they really don't GET the irony of it!

No, I think you are wrong. It is true some of it evolved into a push for communism, National Socialism, and economic socialism but that is not how it started
They did not like the Idea you needed government permission to live with someone. and just having sex was illegal. they did not expect others to feed and house them. they knew if the government give you a house, they also tell you how to live in it

I'd have to argue with you about that. What most of the hippy-dippy (hehe, just love that phrase btw) flower children wanted was Communism/Socialism/Nazism/the same koolaid Obama supporters drink.... They may have thought they were advocating for free love and freedom in general, but they never stopped to really think about the way the world would have needed to work. In their minds somehow Communism would have worked (but umm no, not ever). Just more pretty packaging over a rotton to the core idea.

And it's getting really hard to type here so i'm off to bed, night all!!

I smiled when I heard about this student loan thing. It passed off a lot of people in groups who would normally vote Dem. People who did not go to collage and say "Why are you giving money to fat cats?

The kids in collage do not care, their loans are not real to them, to the newly graduated they are piss off because they are not getting the Jobs the Big O promised. and those who have been out ten years have other "real" issues they care about

Reagan said "The basis of conservatism is a desire for less government interference or less centralized authority or more individual freedom" not so different from what the flower people wanted in the 60's

I read about this earlier today.

I'm not sure what I find more interesting, The fact that the rules are already in place that say that no matter what you owe in student loans, as long as their federal aide loans you can cap what you pay back to a certain percentage of your income (It's something like 15 to 20%, regardless of what you actually make) and that as long as you consistantly make those payments for a certain period of time (I think it's like 25 to 30 years) whatever the remaining balance is, it's forgiven. Seriously, I'm surprised people aren't advertising these facts to begin with. Think about it, it's like a college recruiter's best dreams... come to our Ivy League over-inflated tuition school. It doesn't matter how much you borrow from us, you can legally cap what you pay back to us at a certain percentage and then after X amount of years you can just walk away from whatever the balance is!

Honestly I'm not sure that I would be getting so super worked up about Obama relaxing the limits on this kind of crap, I think I'm more angry about the fact the loopholes exist in the first place. They're using our money to hand to the schools basically upfront, and in the end we get stiffed as taxpayers.

Just my two cents!

Obama offers cash-for-votes student loan policy
President Barack Obama’s new student loan policy will force working class Americans to pay the ballooning college costs of middle class Americans, and will also hinder needed reform of the bloated education sector, say critics.

Obama is “shifting the burden of paying for college to all of those Americans who did not graduate from college — the waitresses, construction workers, mechanics — and that should infuriate the taxpayers who worked hard to pay off their loans, who decided to live a modest lifestyle to pay off their loans,” said Lindsey Burke, an analyst at the Heritage Foundation.

Obama’s policy is also widening the class division between working-class Americans and those with college credentials, said Matthew Denhart, a researcher at the Center for College Affordability and Productivity in Washington, D.C.

Whatever the real costs, the new subsidy could benefit Obama’s standing among the disenchanted voters in the coveted 20-something demographic. Almost 70 percent of that group voted for him overwhelmingly in 2008.
