    Well, First thing that came to thought while watching this dweeb's video was, why no mention of money dropped into the abyss called the Military Ind Complex and Gov'ts superior handling of Wars without cause and Foriegn Nation Bldg? Who needs social programs and bail outs domestically when, out of our generosity, can do it overseas in a desert ?

    Secondly, without googling powers, isn't there an Article or a Constitutional amendment stating that Congress has the power to collect and levy taxes for the welfare of the US. Is that really trashing the Constitution?

    Otherwise it was a nice kiddie political porn flick I'm sure many Teabag types will get off on...:no_flames:

    Perhaps because whether you agree with our overseas activity or not they are not the reason why future generations who have not been born yet are already trillions of dollars more in debt than we are now.

    Only to the extent to the general welfare of the nation as a whole. It does not mean the government has the authority to mandate healthcare for everyone. Nancy Pelosi's response to such a question is very telling of how the democrats feel about the consititution. That it is more of a hindrance to be ignored rather than a guide to how this country should be governed.

    DOJ bans media, non-residents from future Ferguson town hall meetings
    After Ferguson, Mo., issued a press release promoting five town hall meetings to address concerns of the community, the Department of Justice informed the city that no media or non-residents would be allowed to attend.

    “This was not and never was a decision made by the City and it will be up to DOJ to enforce it if that is their policy,” Ferguson spokesman Devin James wrote in an email to the St. Louis Post Dispatch. “The City simply wants to do what’s in the best interest of residents so they can have the opportunity to have meaningful dialogue.”

    The meetings are being conducted by the Department of Justice’s Community Relations Service, which generally handles conflict resolution, but it is “required by law to conduct its activities in confidence and without publicity.”

    Some argue I post to many. If I didn't know it just pisses so many off, I'd probably not bother posting any!

    Well you got it half right. Make another post with video, insert the other party and then you can pat yourself on the back for a complete and well done job!
