    OK, lets have a little fun...
    On this thread, lets be politically opposite...

    If you are a conservative, on this thread be a liberal
    If you are a liberal, on this thread be a conservative...

    Walk a mile in your brother's shoes...


    OK, I'll start...
    Since I am a conservative.. I'll be a liberal.


    Here goes nothing....

    Praise God for the Healthcare bill. Now people that can't get insurance because of pre-existing conditions can. For instance, my wife, a diabetic couldn't get insurance... now she can... (well, shortly she can...)

    See.. that wasn't sooo hard.

    Your turn:

    Sorry, no can do. I don't like even reading liberal stuff, much less pretending to be one. :saint:

    I'll bite.

    Tim, that is good that your wife can finally get the insurance she needs, but why is that my responsibility to pay for it? In fact, how will we afford this expensive plan on top of the ill-advised bailouts and two overseas wars? You liberals always forget that these social programs have to be paid for by somebody.

    Bizzaro Salty says in his infinite wisdom: Education in the USA has went to pot - other countries are light years ahead (why do we have so many foreign doctors in our hospitals). Therefore, when I run for office, my platform will be to provide up to a masters degree, at no charge for any student desiring one, all they have to do is to maintain a minimum of a D+ average. Then our country will reap excellent benefits from our kids who now have good education.

    I'll try, but every time I started to type I kept trying to lose my lunch. :D

    There should be stiffer penalties for crimes against ecology and nature. Animals have feelings, too, you know. Killing an animal, any animal, should carry as stiff a penalty as killing a person if not more! Except for abortions... that's neither a person nor an animal; it is simply a lump of tissues and an inconvenience.

    You forgot to mention socialism. A conservative would definitely mention socialism here.

    In my John Birch Society days - before some of you were born - I would have written that this is the greatest country in the world (still true) and there are no ECONOMIC/POLITICAL reasons why anyone who grew up here should be living in poverty (still true).

    Back then I didn't understand the psychological reasons why some people don't take advantage of their opportunity.

    Olivia is a lonely woman. She is a single mother of 2, who is struggling to make ends meet. She has a broken down car that she has to depend on to get back and forth to her minimum wage job. The two men she slept with, left when they found out she was pregnant.

    She gets up in the morning, gets her oldest to the bus stop, 6 month old to the babysitter, and arrives just in time at work to hear her boss chew her out for being 5 minutes late.

    She is over worked and underpaid, she is worried about the bills at home that are piling up, and the bill collectors that keep calling her. She has no healthcare, and goes to the ER if her kids get the sniffles.

    She struggles through her day, calling her babysitter at 3:30 to make sure her oldest got home after school. At 4:30 her boss tells her to work over until 5:30. She just hates working!... and really worries about getting overtime... if she gets too much, she loses her food stamps... and there is the children's Birthday party next month.. .she has to keep her stamps in order to buy the cake, pop, ice cream, candy, chips, etc.

    At 6:00 when she finally gets home, her babysitter tells her that if she is late 1 more time, she will have to find another babysitter.

    She finally gets dinner, helps with homework, bathes the kids, and gets them to sleep… at 9:30 pm. She goes to bed with a headache, knowing she has to get up at 5:30 the next morning. Life is horrible. But she has hope... She is hoping that her future changes... She hears there is help coming from the Government. She hears that one day, things will get better and she won't have to work a full time job to supply their needs. She hopes that one day, she can get more help from the Government. But she worries that those mean conservatives will try to stop the change that is coming. Imagine them saying she should work hard! That's just wrong!... Next thing you know they will try to make abortion illegal.. and that's her only hope if she gets pregnant again!!!

    The only political/economic system in which single mothers will NOT be at the bottom of the food chain are those which consider children to be state property. Someone will always be at the bottom of the food chain.

    There is an economy that comes from having two adults in one family. But say that three single mothers decided to share one residence. The two with the best earning potential could work while the 3rd baby sat all the children. They could possibly have a higher standard of living than the "traditional" family.

    Progressives RULE!!!

    At least we are not stuck in a rut!.. . It's time to move into the 21st century... And let's face it, there are somethings that will require the Federal Government's overseeing.

    Take education for instance..
    If we allowed the Federal Government to oversee it, we would have a consistent educational system nationwide!... All students would be on the same page.. (no pun intended)... There would be no controversy like we saw in Texas where local BOEs could write their own textbooks... Each textbook would be approved at the Federal level.. and EVERY school district would use the same textbooks.

    And most important we need to have universal full day pre-K for all children starting at age 3! The public school knows much better than parents. You see, our teachers have at least masters degrees and have all the latest information and studies from the DR. Beninjiam Spock School of Education.

    The topic of post #12 is that a single mother has a hard row to hoe. My response is that except in a commie country a single mother should expect to have a hard row to hoe. She made her bed and no one on this list will or can propose an antidote to solve her problems. TinyTim infers that she isn't smart enough to keep her pants on or use birth control except for abortion.
