I love how most of the questions center around what I call the "What are you going to give me?" type.

The problem with almost all of this "Crisi" (is that plural for crisis?) is that there is too much Government interference.

The Federal Government should not be in the the education game, the federal government should not be in the housing game, etc.

The Federal Government exists for the sole purpose of creating and maintaining non-human infrastructure and protecting the country.

We have become a country where when anything goes wrong we immediately look to the Government and ask "How are YOU going to fix MY problem?"

All that does is create a new Oligarchy.

Our Populace definitely has the mentality!

Nobody is asking the question "How will the government stay out of my way?"

That is what the Government should be asking.

Kinda confusing is it not. Communist government tells the people what to do and normally get it wrong so the people ignore them.

Western government are told what to do by the people and ignore them, do it their own way and get it wrong. The only difference is in the west the blame the government and instead of ignoring them.

See this is where the vast majority of people in the world (Including our country) get it wrong.

Government is supposed to get its power from the people. The problem is that our politicians (I am sure it is the same throughout the world) bribe the voters into keeping them in power.

The vast majority of people in this world are sheep. They want to be taken care of and left alone to graze in the meadow.

The problem arises when the "Shepherd" starts trying to take care of too many flocks. Local shepherds for local flocks is the best answer. The local shepherd is forced to live with his flock not with the other shepherds.

Shepherds though, want to make their lives easier. So they appoint a group of shepherds to make rounds during the night and foul weather so they can stay inside where it is warm. They justify this to themselves by saying they are working on ways to keep the sheep safer.

Problem is that the wolves come out at night and the sheep dogs are forced to stay with the shepherds.

On and on it goes "With acceptable losses" of sheep because I mean really, how can one or two sheep really patrol the hundreds of pastures?

But the shepherds are working on a way to keep the sheep safer.

"No longer accepting new questions at this time."

Well, I guess that means they have the media on top of that one, you know to clear the serious hidden truth questions away and make way for a few mind washing "I'm still a virgin, when is it the right time for me?" questions.

What the hell is wrong with "yous" people. To my recollection this is the first time any president has ever offered such a direct ability to be heard and get your opinion across, but yet you mock it out of ignorance or cynicism. Sad.
