What are your colors?

March 30, 2013

I'm 78. I remember my first time at the playground by myself. I'm minding my own activity when I'm approached by what today would be called a bully, "hey, give me your apple; no I sa....

Sometimes the bully does not see themselves, ie conservatives blaming government, liberals, minoritites, illegals, communists, .....

And I thought the bully was that person limiting the amount and types of food that those high school students can consume!

Presuming a GOP victory in 2016, I take comfort in knowing that conservatives will hold their newly elected president fully responsible for the $20 trillion dollar national debt from day one.

Very presumptuous.

However, that is a part of why I voted for Ted Cruz instead of David Dewhurst in the primary. Dewhurst, even though far better than the Democrat opponent(s), is more of a crony politician doing the same ole', same ole'. Dewhurst would have been stellar in bringing more of that pork (or bacon as some have described it) back to the state of Texas but in the long run, that is one of the big factors in our country debt. I am glad that Cruz is on the front line pushing some fiscal prudence; I just hope that he can keep the focus.

Sham- Still blaming Bush? How about most any politician that comes out of D.C. Look how "poor" the Clinton's are. Face it, politics is a get rich profession for the "better off" crowd.

..."Face it, politics is a get rich profession for the "better off" crowd." - Why stop a Washington? - Give us an FYI of any country or nation, where the ruling party has less influence than the people it rules. Political influence, corporate influence... Seek out the most powerful, and you'll uncover who is truly in charge.

Try not to hold a grudge. When he grows up he will not remember you. When confronted with a bully: Take him down: His minions will fade.

A bully tries to force you to do things you do not want to do.....like raise taxes, give amnesty, promote abortion and spend money we do not have.

No, but we will hold him/her responsible for every dollar over $20 trillion, just as we hold President Obama responsible for every dollar over $9 trillion.

@eriklatranyi

I'm sure you are as equally outraged at the tripling of the national debt during the twelve years of the Reagan & Bush presidencies.
