The waste of the day is a good idea, finally.
The GOP needs to man up and get things done....the things WE want done!
Couldn't that Dumb @$$ BAINER line item these out of funding? Doesn't the house control the purse strings?
A lot of us 'seniors' already played 'World of Warcraft' for real, in places like WW2, Korea and Viet Nam. Bet you'll never see the libs linking seniors to this game, it's 'insensitive'. ;-) ;-)
Get back to me if you can beat 47,000 without killing a hostage. ;-)
Unfortunately, unless we forward these to friends and family, we are the only ones who will know about this garbage. Here is my charge, FORWARD it to everyone you know. Let's continue to do the work the media refuses to do.
Government Gone Wild! They (Progressives/Liberals) on Both Sides of the Aisle are the Enemy of Freedom and all things great about The United States of America! Only a Revolution will change the course we are on. It won't be pretty. Prepare and be ready for the crash, mark my words it's coming.
Have you ever had a child, who refuses to do his homework, finding reason after reason why he can't do it right now..well that is what this administration is..They want to play petty games blaming anyone but themselves for why they aren't doing the work grown men and women must do to pass a budget..For gosh sakes all of U.S. have to have a budget..why in the heck is it so hard to cut out the b.s. and cut out the b.s..?? All the "Great Ones" really have passed on ...all we are left with is a bunch of selfish babies, who care nothing about future generations, or the old or anyone..they just use everyone to get what they want..
There is an organization called Citizens Against Government Waste that does
a good job of tracking all the pork. They name politicians names. And they
elect a "Porker" of the year.
It really irks me that everytime these libs are talking about cut spending the ONLY thing they can think of is our Military!
Excuse me, but those people ARE the ones fighting for YOUR freedom to be able to SIT ON YOUR ASS and do nothing all day. Show some appreciation for these men and women why don't you!
As far as this fiasco, if you're wanting to study the affects of video games and their players, why choose seniors? If anything, you won't be seeing them playing First Person Shooters, it would probably be more casual like flash games or Mario (you know, with their grandchildren). And assuming where I can see where this is coming from since the talk of gun control, study the effects of people in my generation and younger. Because those are the type of people who spend most of their teenage life on video games. (which IMO, is absurd to say that violent video games will cause them to go violent)
Don't worry guys, you'll never see a news story about a grandmother on a shooting rampage becuase she was playing Mario! -_-
I wonder when someone will think of using virtual reality and games like MW3 to train soldiers........oh wait.......i just did, an average 14 year old teenager just thought of how to train soldiers, and yet Obama says it'll be cheaper to take money out of the military. he does know that doing that may cause some soldiers to lose or quit they're jobs and that might lead to more unemployment......right?
Waiting for the libertarians to complain about this... come on... where are you guys? Or is it just the those wasteful trips to Israel done by Rand Paul and Rubio that boil their blood.
Not sure what libertarians you speak of, but this libertarian doesn't hate Israel(I support them, and Senators who back them), but think this kind of crap is ridiculous. Though it is a start, it isn't enough. We have to take baby steps to fix the problem, not blind leaps into empty pools head first to fix them. I believe there are many other places that could have much bigger impacts of fixing it, but you cant get it all done in one fell swoop.
There's your ad campaign against the government threatening cuts on more important items. BO would rather spend money on this "x", than to pay for "y"- Tell D.C. it isn't a game, stop spending our children into poverty.
Seems to me the House (which I thought was Republican owned) could defund nonsense like this.
Boehner? Boehner? Anyone?
John Boehner is a waste of skin
He has no resolve
He should be embarrassing this preezy on so many levels
I believe that Boehner is being extorted
Aren't we all tired of saying the same thing repeatedly?
How can you find all the pork they stuff into bills, then you will know why they wont stop it. They all have their heads buried in the trough
I'll raise you two porks for your three pork barrels. Also, we presume they know how to read since two lawyers claimed they did not know stealing people's guns was in a bill they signed. Which is worst lawyers who sign documents without reading or lawyers who cannnot read.
GOP (and especially you Rubio) take note to Rand Paul's move. Good for him!
Personally, I want a grant for playing the Sims and study if that changes my interaction to real people. I find it would be much easier if real people just had a sparkly plum-bob over their head to alert you to their mood. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/14/Sims3gameplay.png
I know that it does make me hungry--those little guys seem to be eating all the time!
Come-on, you're not serious are you?
Think about it, in order to KNOW it, that would mean that they would have to read it, and more so, study it.
How much chance is there that will happen?
I once had someone spit right in my face. It was more of an insult when the Speaker of the House of Representatives, who is intended to be the TOP spokesperson for "we the people", stood in front of a TV camera and said that to our face.
I've listened to a lot of people from different sites for the last 18 years and the one thing we have in common is that the government is broken, and what's worse, we allowed it.
Budgets allot grant money, but it gets decided on how to be used later on.
Also, there's been no budget for about 4 years now.
Actually Cantor was incorrect. The study was $5k and not from the NSF
I'm a Conservative and a WoW player.
