No, you tell me everything they tell us is wrong. So I asked you " what is your plan" on how this should work.

You answered : I don't have one". Exactly what I am talking about.

There is a problem with their solution. You have a problem with our concerns . But you have no solution .

So, what's the point in attacking those, who every day, try to find a better way to do our jobs? We help people. We want to keep doing that .

You call yourself a health professional?

Condoms and Pills don't work without education.

Personal responsibility? Do you really mean, "just close your legs"?

I tell you that everything "they" tell you is wrong?

What the hell are you talking about?

Where in that post, or anywhere for that fact have I said such a thing?

Start making sense man!

But, yeah, it's amazing how someone who is trying to come off as so intelligent really can't spell very simple words correctly, or put together a coherent sentence with correct grammar.

usually I start writing and am interupted several times. I have been here 4 days straight. So if a post seems disjointed, it is, because I had to go somewhere else in the middle of it.

now you know.

Obama Job Approval Rating Down to 38% Among Independents

Overall job ratings for the president continue to be below majority levelby Jeffrey M. Jones


PRINCETON, NJ -- Thirty-eight percent of independents approve of the job Barack Obama is doing as president, the first time independent approval of Obama has dropped below 40% in a Gallup Daily tracking weekly aggregate. Meanwhile, Obama maintains the support of 81% of Democrats, and his job approval among Republicans remains low, at 12%.

These data are based on Gallup Daily tracking interviews conducted the week of June 28-July 4.

Over the past year, Obama has lost support among all party groups, though the decline has been steeper among independents than among Republicans or Democrats. Today's 38% approval rating among independents is 18 percentage points lower than the 56% found July 6-12, 2009. During the same period, his support has fallen nine points among Democrats (from 90% to 81%) and eight points among Republicans (from 20% to 12%).

Overall, 46% of Americans approve of the job Obama is doing as president in the June 28-July 4 aggregate, one point above his lowest weekly average. Obama's average weekly job approval rating has not been above 50% since Feb. 8-14, though it reached the 50% mark as recently as May 3-9.

Obama's lower ratings come amid a still-struggling economy, the ongoing difficulties presented by the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and the recent change of command in the war in Afghanistan. Underscoring the challenge at hand, Obama's 44% approval rating in July 2-5 polling (Gallup did not interview July 4) ties his lowest three-day average to date.
Obama Job Approval Rating Down to 38% Among Independents

I didn't realize how small of a minority I was in among Republicans, in approving of the Job Obama is doing currently.

Once again with your sneering anti-Obama rhetoric. Why can't you. . .

Oh, wait.

Oops.

Sorry.

"Condoms and Pills don't work without education."

Evidently not.


"Personal responsibility" I guess I dont have to ask that question.



Maybe the Government should regulate condoms ? Condom Czar?

Harvard doesnt have a class for it that I can recall. If you don't have any idea about a condom or the pill, or what personal responsiblity is, that's probably would exclude many from getting in.

Maybe MTV could help? Or mail in for a no obligation self help video.

The Pill.... Pretty simple for most people. Put it in mouth and swallow ?

Any comments on why the Obama/Holder Justice Dept dropped a voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party, dating back to Election Day '08?

It's a sole nut job that has been ordered to stay away from polling sites in the future. What is interesting is this would NOT be a non-story if...

...a clear case of a lone white racist intimidating black voters had been dropped by the Bush Attorney General.

...or an employee of the Bush Administration's DOJ quit his job and testified he was told "The Department will not pursue voting rights cases against 'black' victims."

One can only imagine.

Missed my point by miles again and even still in your post you show how disconnected you are.

racism is much worse when it's white people who are the victim. it's difficult being white, i agree.

also, fabricating pretend scenarios and then predicting a likewise pretend response is a great way to make a point.

It's a great way to point out the huge double standard that exists in reporting on race in this country. Imagine a Republican calling Barack Obama "clean and articulate" or talking about his lack of a "Negro dialect" then.

and yet, Rush has millions of listeners and is the leader of the Republican Party. seems like his listeners, and the GOP, give him a pass on his well-documented racism.

Of course you compare two preeminent senate Democrats to a radio talk show host because the more apropos comparison of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to Senate Majority Leader Lott and Joe Biden to George Allen would prove my point.

first, Rush is as important as any other Republican, and he's vastly more popular than any of the above elected officials, so sympathy for racism is broadly widespread among conservatives. they've been offering a safe haven for racists since at least the Civil Rights Movement, and will likely continue to do so as it becomes increasingly impossible for minorities to consider voting for the GOP due to their policies.

there is, however, a gulf of difference between "Macaca" -- a clear racial slur -- made by a man with a very checkered "southern pride" past and a dog named Sambo and who thinks the word "Jewish" is an insult, and two older white men making verbal faux pas.

i will say, however, that the GOP -- and even GWB -- did a very good job denouncing (eventually) Trent Lott's advocation for a racially segregated society.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Nearly 60 percent of American voters say they lack faith in President Barack Obama, according to a public opinion poll published on Tuesday.

The results of the Washington Post/ABC News poll are a reversal of what voters said at the start of Obama's presidency 18 months ago when about 60 percent expressed confidence in his decision making.

Confidence in Obama is at a new low but the poll found that his numbers are still higher than lawmakers of either major party four months ahead of the November congressional elections.

Asked how much confidence they have in Obama to make the right decisions for the country's future, 58 percent of respondents said "just some" or "none."

Sixty-eight percent expressed the same sentiments about Democrats in Congress and 72 percent said the same of Republicans.

The Post said problems in the housing industry, sluggish job growth and other economic issues may have taken a toll on Obama's approval rating.

Just 43 percent of all Americans, including a third of Democrats, now say they approve of the job Obama is doing on the economy, while 54 percent disapprove.

The survey also found wide anti-incumbent sentiment with 62 percent of voters saying they were not inclined to support their current representative.

All 435 seats in the House of Representatives are up for grabs in the November 2 election as well as 36 of the 100 Senate seats.

Democrats now control both houses of Congress, but a slight majority of those polled said they would prefer to have Republicans in control to serve as a check on Obama's policies.

The poll of 1,288 people was conducted July 7-11 and has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

Serve as a check on Obama's policies? He can barely get anything passed with his own party!!!!

Republicans have been doing a great job of destroying or modifying every bill that comes through with scare tatics and just plain old bullshit.

And yes i realize that the Dems would be doing the same exact thing if a R was president....although you could argue they wouldn't because they're not as organzied as the republican party.

I have zero faith in any party or any politician. What a fucking mess we are in, and all we can do is argue.

it's tough out there, and bad news (oil spills, Afghanistan, slow job growth) has been plaguing us all summer. Obama has done some very difficult legislative things -- especially health care, but also the much-needed stimulus, and he's now almost there on banking reform -- and one could argue whether or not he should have only focused on jobs/jobs/jobs, but he may have calculated that he wouldn't have a democratic-controlled congress/senate after 2010 and chose to go that route while he could.

long story short, the crisis of confidence and his lukewarm polling numbers aren't at all surprising.
