modern-day-rome asked: You do realize that the impeach-mint thing was a joke right?? That maybe every president since Hebert Hoover is a financial criminal. FDR should be tried. Nixon and Truman. The fact is you can't create a defense for any of these 'men' because they're the ones who make sure that nobody can get a job. All of these people make sure that the economy wont grow. God Bless the USSA right?
Yes, sir. I do believe we’re saying similar things. I definitely was not creating a defense for these ‘men’, as you put it. I was merely stating the fact that you cannot solve the problem of corruption and/or incompetence at the top through the process of impeachment…it would be like asking Al-Qaeda back in the day to turn in bin Laden to international court, then sit in as a jury on the hearings. All the people that would be involved in the impeachment proceedings are just as useless and as much at fault as our supreme leader. To condemn him, they would probably shed light on all the fraud and scandal that they themselves have been involved in.
Also, it’s probably not that those individuals at the decision-making levels of government want to purposely hold down Americans and keep them from getting jobs and making a living. It is that there is no back bone and no moral integrity anywhere in sight in the Oval Office and the majority of Congress. Extreme statement, perhaps. But what do Americans expect? If people paid attention in high school US History, they’d understand that the underlying problem is Democracy and Capitalism has the kind of love story that only exists in relationships like Rihanna and Chris Brown’s.
I’m not overly pleased with or teeming with confidence in myself. I am just happy. I know I’m going to get where I’m going. That is truth which is self-evident.

This post should be titled “things I can just ask my parents”.
**Unless your parents are immigrants who brought you to America in hopes of better opportunities, but had no idea how to navigate the system themselves and were scammed by manipulative persons left and right, and through the process lost all their savings. My parents taught me to be responsible, and warned me to stay out of debt, but how could they know how to apply for school loans, shop for the best mortgage rates, or how to negotiate on cars, when the English they knew barely helped them get by at the grocery store? This is my personal story; there are other circumstances to consider.

BUT, I have come to figure these things out. And these will be things I will teach my children. Rather, I will teach them how to save money to buy a house, buy used cars that they can afford, or not use a car at all; I will teach them to fix their cars themselves, and educate themselves beyond the college classroom, because no amount of paper - whether they confer degrees or have “legal tender” printed on them - can measure their worth.
