Try it

Watched the state of the union tonight. If you think you can raise a family on $15,000 a year, try it!

We can do better than one pipe-line.

We are a strong tight knit family who has made it through some hard times.

Tightly knit.

Tightly knit.

I heard the President speak for: Childcare, college students, immigration, voting rights, Civil Rights, the working class, women’s health, common ground, free speech, and more.

I have been watching State of the Union speeches since I was a pre-teen. And, I have watched, been interested in and smiled and cheered and cried through all of them no matter the party. I just wish that everyone could be open minded enough to know the importance of listening to what our president says no matter party affiliations. I get so disgusted that so many people are so narrow minded that they have a fit that makes it impossible for teachers to show a state of the union speech or an inauguration speech in class. If nothing else it is a learning curve on who the leaders are that are in the room at the event.

    I’ll bet if the other party was giving the address, lots of teachers would make their students watch it! Around here anyway! I think parties should be done away with and everyone had to be Independent . Then, we would find out who the best person for the job really is. Here in SD, a monkey running on the Republican ticket would beat any Democrat! Sad state of affairs!!

    I would think showing a state of the union or inauguration would be almost mandatory. It is so important to at least be aware of what is going on in and around us.

      Thanks, my thoughts, but our area is so partisan that showing the inauguration of the current president was almost a job ender. Some parents kept their children home and some insisted their child be allowed to sit in a study hall rather than in the classroom. This was in a couple of different schools and a few years ago.

    Good for you to be open to what people have to say, regardless of their political affiliation. Things in this world are very rarely black and white.
