Then it is all just more of the same as any other president. No real change, just band-aids because they don't have guts to make changes we really need.
    Other than legalizing it and NASA, I think he said everything you asked for.

    Indeed! I was even impressed he gave a shout-out/acknowledgement to 3D printing as that's got serious untapped potential!

    Because our government are such show offs, that instead of keeping the money while being quiet, they flaunt it as part of programs to funnel it to their 'friend'. /sarcasm

    I don't have a tv and my satellite internet won't let me watch it live. But I would be pleasantly surprised if this is indeed the case. Legalizing marijuana will happen soon enough. the increased tax revenue is insanely hard to overlook.

    Before anyone jumps at me for being Liberal or Leftist or whatever. I have traditionally sided with conservatives, but I have come to realize neither of the two major parties have our best interests in mind. They always play to an agenda. So I tossed away my party ties and started thinking about what would be best for everyone, and I just can't implicitly trust either major party now. I kinda wish Gary Johnson was elected.

    Well his stance (and the whole Dem side) has never been "Ban guns" ever. They've always advocated for better control.

    I don't think a man of his complexion can touch that issue. Not that I think he should care about that, but I don't think he has the fortitude to do it. Look at people in this thread talking about him giving away sell phones, how do you think they will respond to him legalizing it? Buying the drug addict and dealer vote?

    Not sure what part of the world you live in but fast food has been getting bigger and bigger. If anything the $1 double cheeseburger at McDonald's was smaller 10 years ago.

    ...did you seriously suggest him to compare a quarter pounder from today to a quarter pounder from 10 years ago if they're the same size?

    Also - do you happen to have on you either a 10-year old Fast Food burger or a Time Machine we could borrow to help make this comparison?

    Yet, he still buys it. How much smaller does it have to get before people stop buying it? Not to mentions that portions have sky rocketed and giant size promotion is dead.

    It is quite simple just follow the money everything he has ever purposed that cost tax money eventually goes right into the pockets of his contributors

    LOL yeah. Some people strike me odd. it's like they want to give zero help for anyone just because someone they don't agree with might use it.

    Stopping all aid is like saying let's ban cars or guns completely because someone might misuse them.
    But what about better regulation?
    That makes too much sense.

    Oh the silly people that believe that it is this cut and dry. More cash being in the hands of the spending demographic also means more people buying more.

    Well... there was that whole "ending the war in Iraq" promise... oh, and the "redirecting troops from Iraq to Afganastan to help get Osama Bin Laden"

    ...but I'm thinking you were too busy blaming Clinton for 9/11 to remember small little insignificant details like that. :P

    You are actually suggesting that any effort to use taxes to help Americans, is just a ploy to get their vote?

    It was never just Fox news. It could be a real concern. Giving the government too much leeway with no way to keep them in check and they will run wild. people like you give Fox too much power imo.

    ....umm...nobody is talking about Cell Phones being given away. You may want to clean those glasses your wearing... I think your roomie might've played a practical joke on you and wrote "Damn Obama is giving away Cell Phones!" in very small print on the bottom of your reading glasses.
