It's the President's Fault

2422 Views 13 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  Col Maddog
Why is it that people give the President (any President) so much credit or blame? Does everyone really believe that our current economic situation is the direct result of something President Bush personally did? There are an awful lot of people that are planning to vote Democrat (House and President) just because they think Bush is a douche. Help me out here. Didn't the Dems just win a majority of seats in the house, running on the promise that they would change things? :duh:

Anyone here seen "Boondock Saints"? "Bad television! You only see this shit in bad television!"

There are several factors that have caused our country to be in the crapper.

1) Ratings driven media - sensational news. Most "news" isn't. It's just a ratings draw for advertising sales.

2) Poor parenting - single parents, two working parents, just plain piss-poor people who shouldn't have had kids in the first place. TV and Xbox are not substitutes for an involved parent.

3) Irresponsibility - "The secret to success is knowing who to blame for your failures." Most people will be promoted to their level of incompetence.

To name a few. I could go on, but I have to go home.
Is it true they're making a Boondock Saints 2 ???
According to what I've read, "The Boondock Saints: All Saints Day" is in pre-production, and the only cast member who won't be back for the sequel is Willam Dafoe. Instead, Agent Smecker's protoge', played by Julie Benz will be introduced. Allegedly, the story takes place 10 years after the original.
Boondock Saints is one of my top ten favorites!
It's squarely at number three for me. Right behind "Snatch" and "Pulp Fiction".

"So uh, what's the symbology?"
I have raised two kids to be responsible, well-mannered, respectful adults and a third who is still attending the "Nunya D. Binnez Adulthood Prepartion Academy". My eldest child and son has already served in the Army, during which time he was a "tanker", where he did two tours of Iraq and learned never to retreat, only to "advance to the rear". My elder daughter is out in the workforce pulling her own weight and paying her bills on time.

<sarcasm> How did I accomplish this amazing feat? </sarcasm> It's easy.

1) I take a personal interest in what my children are doing.

2) I make it my business to know who my kids are hanging-out with. If I don't like their friends, they cannot hang-out with them.

3) I PUNISH BAD BEHAVIOR! Swiftly, firmly, fairly. I'm not afraid to spank my kids. I haven't had to spank my youngest since she was 6. She's 12 now. All of my kids have an intimate understanding of "consequences".

4) I reward and praise good behavior. My daughter recently made the A/B Honor-roll. I paid her $20 for every "A" and $10 for every "B" and gave her an "A/B Honor-roll Bonus" of $20. She chose to put it into her savings account. I also made it a point to call her (she was at a friend's house) when I found out and tell her how proud she had made me.

5) I spend time with them. Frequently, that time is spent at the range, but it could be just sitting down and watching a movie together.

People who either lack the time or the will to meet these requirements, have no business being parents. Period!!
