“Why do you call it a "hate-fest"? Do you honestly expect those who said that this program was flawed from the beginning and were called every name in the book by it's supporters to keep their mouths shut when everything they said would happen actually happens? You were warned and would not listen. I feel for those who are going to suffer because of the hubris of the Democrats.”

“"Obama continued, "We will not likely see the likes of Nelson Mandela again."
History is full of courageous people. It is a great loss to lose such people, yes, but they do call on each of us to be stronger, better, bigger than we are.”

“because to women, "being a real/grown man" = DOING WHAT WOMEN WANT YOU TO DO (i.e. getting married, committing to her, etc). lol this idea can only last for so much longer. One by one men are starting to realize that they don't really need women in their lives for much more than a good roll in the hay. Men do not have to listen to or provide for women anymore. We define ourselves as men, we don't look to what a woman's idea of a real/grown man is. We can cook and clean for ourselves, so what do we need you for? Marriage rates will continue to drop, you'll see.”

Not really sure why you would give up the term entitlement. It's fairly clear what it means and in fact many on the right think social secruity is not an entitlement, which just means they don't realize their legislators are about to dismantle it.”
