    Why do you say "We" and "Our's"? Isn't this suppose to be YOUR opinion, not ours?

    What is this, Kelly has something other than glorious praise for his savor Obama. How dare he question his plan to create or save jobs? I can understand him taking a swipe at Sarah Palin with his "we've got some candidates who've proven they don't have a good handle on history in the first place." comment; but she isn't even running as of today. And then there is the stimulus, 30K for research on giving brown trout glasses and 5 million for a new runway at an airport in a town with two residents. (These are just examples of the way some of his shovel ready jobs where thought out). I could care less about the rest of the world and if they go into a depression. I care about the USA and if we don't stop spending we will end up just like Greece and head down the road of Europe. Can you imagine if we cut of free college education to illegals, cut off all benefits to illegals and anyone failing a drug test? That would not be good, no we need to have the drug addicts on SSI and welfare so they can buy the drugs from Mexico and keep the drug lords in power. Now that is the way to run a county, I thought Obama was going to make this a utopia like he did for Illinois and Chicago.

  • My Mom was on Medicaid the last couple years of her life. She lived to be 91 yrs old and she had a nice chunk of savings, however that dwindled down fast when I put her in the nursing home. She got a retirement check and all but a few dollars each month went towards her payment to the nursing home the rest of it Medicaid picked up. She had dental care which medicaid paid for. She needed dental work and didn't have but a few dollars in her checking account.

    When she died what was left in her checking account the nursing home got that.

    You have to be pretty much penniless to get medicaid....

    There are many many elderly on medicaid living in nursing homes...

    The example of the guy that won millions in the lottery but is receiving food stamps (credit card) from taxpayers. He is still eligible to receive the handout since they don't consider lottery winnings as income. He also stated he will continue to collect since they can't stop him even though he has millions in the bank. This is how these freeloaders think, give me...give me...give me. I shouldn't have to work or try if some sucker will work two jobs and pay me not to work. Let us do away with all these entitlements unless you are too old, sick, or can't take care of yourself. I don't mean he/she has bi-polar so let's give them SSI, I mean your mental so we are going to commit you sick and you will have someone appointed to oversee your welfare. No voting and someone will make all your decisions for you if you get assistance. I was watching JAIL on TV one night and a guy was brought in for stealing from his mother, he flat said he already spent his SSI (government check) on weed and needed to get more. He smokes pot all day and the taxpayers (you and me) pay for this. My favorite is to watch the welfare junkies buy steaks and brand name products with their food stamp card then buy beer and cigarettes with a roll of cash, topping off with getting into a newer car or truck. Freeloaders got to hate them, where is the drug testing? It is good enough for the military it should be good enough for the freeloaders.

  • I checked out your link Homer

    Did you see this

    The aritcle also states that the poll in the first June of the election cycle bears little resemblance to the final outcome. It predicted Reagan to lose to Mondale, It predicted Clinton to lose to Dole all had a mid 40's approval rating as Obama does. The poll means nothing at this point and Gallup goes to pretty great lengths to let you know that
