    It will be the same class war clap trap with more spending and taxes. (Warning the Vat tax is on their minds.) While trying to appear that spending has been cut during his entire Presidency. New roads, bridges, free education, free medical and everone treat equal. Let's just throw out our Constitution and let everyone be treated equal and follow this new one.

    Article 39. Citizens of the USSR enjoy in full the social, economic, political and personal rights and freedoms proclaimed and guaranteed by the Constitution of the USSR and by Soviet laws. The socialist system ensures enlargement of the rights and freedoms of citizens and continuous improvement of their living standards as social, economic, and cultural development programmes are fulfilled.
    Enjoyment by citizens of their rights and freedoms must not be to the detriment of the interests of society or the state, or infringe the rights of other citizens.

    Article 40. Citizens of the USSR have the right to work (that is, to guaranteed employment and pay in accordance wit the quantity and quality of their work, and not below the state-established minimum), including the right to choose their trade or profession, type of job and work in accordance with their inclinations, abilities, training and education, with due account of the needs of society.

    This right is ensured by the socialist economic system, steady growth of the productive forces, free vocational and professional training, improvement of skills, training in new trades or professions, and development of the systems of vocational guidance and job placement.

    Article 41. Citizens of the USSR have the right to rest and leisure.

    This right is ensured by the establishment of a working week not exceeding 41 hours, for workers and other employees, a shorter working day in a number of trades and industries, and shorter hours for night work; by the provision of paid annual holidays, weekly days of rest, extension of the network of cultural, educational, and health-building institutions, and the development on a mass scale of sport, physical culture, and camping and tourism; by the provision of neighborhood recreational facilities, and of other opportunities for rational use of free time.
    The length of collective farmers' working and leisure time is established by their collective farms.

    Article 42. Citizens of the USSR have the right to health protection.

    This right is ensured by free, qualified medical care provided by state health institutions; by extension of the network of therapeutic and health-building institutions; by the development and improvement of safety and hygiene in industry; by carrying out broad prophylactic measures; by measures to improve the environment; by special care for the health of the rising generation, including prohibition of child labour, excluding the work done by children as part of the school curriculum; and by developing research to prevent and reduce the incidence of disease and ensure citizens a long and active life.

    Article 43. Citizens of the USSR have the right to maintenance in old age, in sickness, and in the event of complete or partial disability or loss of the breadwinner.

    The right is guaranteed by social insurance of workers and other employees and collective farmers; by allowances for temporary disability; by the provision by the state or by collective farms of retirement pensions, disability pensions, and pensions for loss of the breadwinner; by providing employment for the partially disabled; by care for the elderly and the disabled; and by other forms of social security.

    Article 44. Citizens of the USSR have the rights to housing.

    This right is ensured by the development and upkeep of state and socially-owned housing; by assistance for co-operative and individual house building; by fair distribution, under public control, of the housing that becomes available through fulfilment of the programme of building well-appointed dwellings, and by low rents and low charges for utility services. Citizens of the USSR shall take good care of the housing allocated to them.

    Article 45. Citizens of the USSR have the right to education.

    This right is ensured by free provision of all forms of education, by the institution of universal, compulsory secondary education, and broad development of vocational, specialised secondary, and higher education, in which instruction is oriented toward practical activity and production; by the development of extramural, correspondence and evening courses, by the provision of state scholarships and grants and privileges for students; by the free issue of school textbooks; by the opportunity to attend a school where teaching is in the native language; and by the provision of facilities for self-education.

    Article 46. Citizens of the USSR have the right to enjoy cultural benefits.

    This rights is ensured by broad access to the cultural treasures of their own land and of the world that are preserved in state and other public collections; by the development and fair distribution of cultural and educational institutions throughout the country; by developing television and radio broadcasting and the publishing of books, newspapers and periodicals, and by extending the free library service; and by expanding cultural exchanges with other countries.

    Article 47. Citizens of the USSR, in accordance with the aims of building communism, are guaranteed freedom of scientific, technical, and artistic work. This freedom is ensured by broadening scientific research, encouraging invention and innovation, and developing literature and the arts.

    The rights of authors, inventors and innovators are protected by the state.

    Library, yes...and hours vary. A google of Rochester libraries shows hours are limited, some close as early as 5PM, others as late as 9PM.


    Work, yes...if your employer allows internet access during work hours for personnal communication. Many do not, and if not blocked directly, is discouraged.


    iphone, yes...but that is internet access.


    Earlene has been on RTF and PP for quite a while now. She expressed a lack of desire to hear/view the SOTU. She is free to make that choice.



    The SOTU will be replayed, analylzed, critiqued for days to come.



    and ....as she says, she has a radio.



    I think her OP was meant to be a statement that she is less than pleased with the POTUS, and that it was posted to garner, as someone posted earlier, a "high-five".

    Lennie/Earlene....consider yourself "high-fived". JD


    BTW Dan Storts, do you really believe that the constitution of the former Soviet Union will be adopted and ratified by the Congress? The Scotus? The voters? Really?
    Or, are you just looking for your PP "high-five". JD

    Articles and time in the speech.

    Article 39) 3:30 & 33:00
    Article 40) 2:50, 13:30-16:30, 23:30, 45:00
    Article 41) 33:00
    Article 42) 6:30
    Article 43) 7:00, 9:30
    Article 44) 24:00
    Article 45) 6:30, 16:30-18:00, 23:30, 25:00-30:00 which also covered Articles 46, 47 & 48

    Article 49) 53:00 - 56:00 Vote on proposed guns laws. However, he then immediately followed up with the statement, "No one law will prevent all gun violence." Thus, leaving the door open for more guns laws. Why don't we propose a ban on multi passenger vehicles, like buses, so if there is a accident only 4 people could get hurt or possibly die.

    Article 50) 51:00 indirectly with the voting act.
    Article 51) 4:30
    Article 52) 58:00
    Article 53) 25:00-30:00 which I also listed as being covered in articles 45 through 48
    Article 54 through 57) at the 41:00 for about 10 seconds
    Article 58 & 58) In the first minute and 37:00

    From 10:20 to 13:30 he was in dictator mode on global warming.

    From 37:00 to 41:00 was his look at me moment.

    Articles 60-63 which are not listed) 42:00-44:00 (USSR wanted to increase and thought every citizen should be a part of the military.) He wants to decrease. Then in 48:00-50:00 he did a 180 appearing to be a supporter.

    I wasted a hour tonight to not be accused of cutting and pasting. BYW I did cut and paste the earlier post. However, I could have saved face and just summarize Rules to Radicals.

    No JD, it would never be adopted but it is his line of thinking. When government starts trying to be a cradle to grave care giver it becomes the downfall of the people/society.
