    I read through this article and one sentence stood out...

    http://nbcpolitics.nbcnews.com/_news...the-union?lite



    "the president vowed to take executive action if Congress would not act."

    This worries me. Shows a president who won't even follow the desires of the elected officials by the people.

    This country is going to go to **** if this is the type of president (dictator) we vote in.

    He sits there and says the families of the fallen deserve a vote but will bypass congress to get his way?

    What a hypocryte.

    You've a lot of reading to do, Sly; your surprise seems quite naive.

    Not naive. Dissappointed in this country. And thanks for comment. Got all warm and fuzzy. I guess EXPECTING more from our government is naive.

    Sorry, I guess I nothing to add.

    Expecting anything from government is the country's problem. It's grown beyond anyone's ability to control, and there is no chance those in power -- regardless of party affiliation -- will even try. For some to prosper, others must be made poor; that applies whether we're talking about money, ideals, influence, or raw power.

    Some of it is worth listening too but most of it is just fluff.

    I understand the point of the movie but the point could have been made in 3 minutes.

    Food for thought. Many people do not find it acceptable.

    A whole lot more than you think. You just have to look in the right places.

    I would question whether it was the size or the invasion of corporate entities. Were you referring to the welfare state?
