Right back at ya ;)
I disagree. NATO members cannot by definition be buddies with Russia. Could we still trust Turkey to come to the defense of another NATO member? Nor should we be allies with what has steadily turned in to an authoritarian state, a process that started over a decade ago, at least.
No, in fact it’s been quite the opposite in my experience.
Time to recognize that Turkey is not an ally and nor should they be part of NATO.
I hope you don’t reinforce a victim mentality with your kids. I have 4 millennials. On the very rare occasion when one of them acted like they’ve been handed a raw deal, we have had a discussion. While there are certainly challenges that they’ve had that my wife and I didn’t, I can name an exponential number of challenges that I grew up with that make there’s look tame in comparison. In my family, challenges are things to be overcome, not feared and not an opportunity to point the finger of blame and play the victim card. So far, they are all hard working, quality human beings. I wish the best for your kids in these challenging times.
Ha! The girl doll has a busted off bottle! That cracked me up for some reason :P
Depends on the person, same as alcohol, I suppose.
Look up the golden ratio in architecture and you’ll know why, in part, that many Palladian buildings as well as others that fit the ratio, inherently appeal to people. :)
Somehow I either forgot that or did not know it to begin with. Thanks!
How do you know that bonuses were in lieu of permanent pay increases? All bonuses?
I’m not sure where you get the notion that Pres. Obama reduced our deficits, budget or otherwise.
President Obama reported budget deficits totaling $7.27 trillion during his eight years of presidency.
Obama added $8.335 trillion to the public debt – more than any modern president.
By the way, I think it’s useful to look at debt to GDP ratio as more of a full picture. In this case the numbers during Obama’s 8 years shows a jump that greatly surpasses what is projected through 2022 (which will only be half way through the next guy’s term).Under Obama it increased from 77% to 105%. The projected ratio through 2022 is ~109%. All these numbers are awful, by the way, and I am not pleased with either the debt or the direction of the debt:GDP.
