    So you're a better American than me because you fought for this country. I work in a childrens hospital helping to save their lives. Many of those children had parents in the military, so keep in mind that I may not be fighting in the military for my country but I am saving the children of people like you.

    Middle of the road doesn't see the writing on the wall. talk about eyes wide shut. apparently he's perfectly satisfied with giving the country away.

    Anyone who thinks this country is in the worse shape it has ever been in should read a little history. One of many examples, in the not so distant past members of a certain race could be lynched with impunity. There have always been crime and criminals. Better communication makes us more aware of it. Get a grip, the sky isn't falling.

    The U.S. will be little better than a third world country by the year 2050.

    FACE IT PEOPLE....This country isn't for "us" anymore. Our country said "give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses", well....thats what we got, along with their criminals as well. You people better wake up and see that this country is destroyed.

    On the other hand, children should have to work for what they get. Teaches them values.
