Obamism. The new religion. Do you have tee-shirts? Of course you do. Just one question who generated the revenue for the government to create the infrastructure? How many DARPA servers run the internet backbone today? How many internet servers and fiber are run not for profit or for free? Have you ever tried to get internet in the country? I don't think you'll find any subsidies but good luck.

Comment Re:Stop redefining proverty. (Score 1) 696

I expect a term to remain unchanged. Did I grow up in poverty? No cell phone, no AC, only basic cable. Must have! It's crazy to compare what we now call poverty to what was just 30 years ago. Or 40 years or more. The idea of basic necessities has been so bastardized that people feel you can't raise a child without disposable diapers. So strange that my Mom raised 9 kids with cloth diapers. So strange.

Such as? More government spending? More bailouts? The largest spending spree in the history of this country with bipartisan support wasn't enough? Its still a republican issue? Lets ignore policies that have historically improved the economy and stick to policies that have shown weakness and created both a sense of helplessness and entitlement. Lets not create a system where an individual can thrive but instead lets only allow those who are politically linked to manipulate and control us. You think higher taxes on the rich will change things? More taxes. Why not. That must be the problem. Hell if we all just relied on the government to provide everything (Spending) and accepted what our job chip told us we could do it would be much better. We can all just work for the government. That system has proven so successful through the years. Why should things be fair? Why shouldn't we have an entitled subclass that feels the wealthiest should pay 70% of what they make? Heck it even makes sense to then send out to that voting populace a check at the end of the year instead of having them be invested at all in an accountable government. Why encourage investment? Lets stop that! Never mind that almost all of us have our retirements tied to investments. It's all going so well lets push for more of the same! More spending! More regulation! More ways to cripple each and everyone of us! That is OK we are losing our good credit rating and before long we can all strike in the streets like Greece about our government check not being enough and the US Dollar not being worth a cent. Hurray!
