It’s the one day of the year that you (wish) your fathers a happy day, not trounce on them.

And I always though Father’s Day was a day in which you celebrated, not criticized. That’s why there’s 364 other days to do that…

[quote]CHICAGO (AP) – Barack Obama celebrated Father’s Day by calling on black fathers, who he said are “missing from too many lives and too many homes,” to become active in raising their children.[/quote]

[quote]”They have abandoned their responsibilities, acting like boys instead of men. And the foundations of our families are weaker because of it,”[/quote]

[quote]There’s a reason our families are in disrepair … but we can’t keep using that as an excuse.”[/quote]

[quote]”That was when I wasn’t black enough. Now I’m too black,”[/quote]

Race has nothing to do with it. Some fathers are great and responsible, others are not, most in between the two. But to call on race to criticize fathers on Father’s Day is a bit off, to me at least.

It’s the one day of the year that you fathers a happy day, not trounce on them.

[quote comment=”85189″][quote comment=”84983″][quote comment=”84962″][quote comment=”84934″]Quick points. The free market is the opportunity for anyone to make it – the essence of hope, which doesn’t come from others, but is the context in which an individual is not impeded by authority, or the elite to make it. Emphasis on opportunity, not guarantee, not entitlement. It’s an evironment in which the consumers exercise free choice, and maintain the health of competition.

What Easy is complaining about is the historical act of human corruption which reaches across all models of government and business structure. There is no other model, except the free market, in which a person who has an idea, can come to market without the authorities, the elite, the monarchy, et al being protectionists and stopping you short. Corrupt humans who run the corporation type are akin to communism in that the centralized elite and loyalists conspire against free market competition. Now, I know some of you here are more in favor of socialism/communism, so think about this.[/quote]

Yes.

Honestly, you nailed it better than I was able to.[/quote]

Uh – so you praise the free market & competition with one part of your rant, but you then turn around and say you loathe the competitive response of “corporations” to new competitors with the other? Basically, you hate corporations. I get it………[/quote]
It’s impossible to make any sense of what Obama’s saying or what his disciples believe.

I know the old guy wants us in Iraq for another 100 years.
