I answered that the constitution covers what the governments rights are not whta the individuals is. and of course i got a bunch of thumbs down. people dont know what the constitution even is apparently. Here is the text of the first amendment... you tell me is it talking about what individuals can and cannot do or is it talking about what government can and cannot do "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances"

The numbers to me show that there is no other conclusion than to say we have a spending problem, not a revenue problem. the fed government has been trying to spend their way to prosperity for over a decade now and judging by the unemployment rate, the housing market, and multiple other factors it doesnt appear to have worked.

The Senate Investigation committe under Carl Levin said among other things that Sachs "..created conflicts of interest with the firm’s clients and at times led to the bank’s profiting from the same products that caused substantial losses for its clients.” Levin Said they misled congress and investors. Yet the DOJ released a statment saying that there is not a viable basis for criminal prosecution of Goldan Sachs or its employees. Eric Holder defended the DOJ saying they had brought 2100 matters involving mortgages in the DOJ and the nottion that they are being inactive in the matter is troublesome. The administration was quick to fine Goldman Sachs but isnt going to try and prosecute them..... Goldman Sachs made 75% of its political donations to Obama and the DNC in 2008, this year they have given 70% of their donations to republicans. Taking it easy on Goldman Sachs to try and get some money back into the campaign coffers perhaps? Is it just about the money? do they really care about punishing abuses on Wall Street?

Raise taxes on the weathy maybe you make a few billion. Does that solve a problem? no it does not. Why will people not face the real problem?

How about if it was a muslim organization? they are against gay marriage. Boston Mayor Tom Menino who had stated his intention to keep Chick Fil-A out of Boston previously granted the building of a Mosque in Boston. Not only that but donated over a milllion dollars of city land for the Mosque, he attended the ribbon cutting and gave a speech. one of the leaders of the mosque has at one time stated that gay marriage is wrong and should be punished by death. So what is it about this this crazy leftist mayor and his issue with Chick Fil-A?

However the accounting part was pretty sketchy and had some criticism that USPS needed reform and this wouldnt solve the problem. USPS scheduled to end Saturday deliveries after the end of the year. However the problem is hitting quicker. USPS cant make its 5.5 billion dollar payment and retirees may not get their money. USPS may default on its payment. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872... The Obama administration really isnt solving the problem , just putting a bandaid over problems

    Came across this MEXICO CITY (AP) - Amnesty International called the abuse of migrants in Mexico a major human rights crisis Wednesday, and accused some officials of turning a blind eye or even participating in the kidnapping, rape and murder of migrants. ..Central American migrants are frequently pulled off trains, kidnapped en masse, held at gang hideouts and forced to call relatives in the U.S. to pay off the kidnappers. Such kidnappings affect thousands of migrants each year in Mexico, the report says. At present, Article 67 of Mexico's Population Law says, "Authorities, whether federal, state or municipal ... are required to demand that foreigners prove their legal presence in the country, before attending to any issues." And there is about half a dozen articles that could be linked regarding murders by the cartels. I guess I cant blame immigrants for wanting to get the hell out of there, however the usa .. even this AZ law.. treats immigrants better than Mexico does. Mexico requires their officials to demand you prove your right to be in the country.
