Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Gained it all back and then some.
So many people seem to miss that tidbit. The capital markets exploded during President Obama's time in office. If someone's 401k has kept on losing money since the President took office either the company sucks, your financial adviser sucks or there's some stealing going on.

You may need to set each of the below charts to the 5 year setting. I know most of the ignorant or blind to the facts type won't bother to even check this data out but it's there to see.

Republican Rep. Virginia Foxx sure loves her traditional values.
She believes defense authorizations bills are the perfect place to include some good old fashioned discrimination against gay service members, just like Jesus said.

She has "very little tolerance" for people who need to borrow money to put themselves through college instead of doing it the traditional, non-loan-needing way she did when she went to college 700 years ago, as the Declaration of Independence clearly demands.

And she's an old school feminist, which is why she is an ardent supporter of any and all bills to strip women of their reproductive rights, just like the suffragists did when they marched and starved themselves, demanding to have fewer rights. In fact, as Foxx explained, "[N]obody has ever fought more for the rights of women than I have."

My company does extensive work for our school system.
And every sporting event has a winner and loser at least as far as score goes.
Interesting part is the losers don't think they won like tea baggers do.
Not talking about sports but in the classroom. Not every classroom. Not every school. But an underlying progressive philosophy of political correctness is permeating and taking hold in all public schools - some to a greater degree than others.

It's not that much of a stretch to know some people are going to throw in the towel and get on the bandwagon. It's human nature not to want to feel like you're getting the short end of the stick.

Or feel like you're the schmuck busting your butt.

I love it when you right whiners throw Bush under the bus after kissing his ass & worshiping his feet for 8 years.
You are so f*cking stupid you think if you give the CEO of Apple a tax cut that he will hire more people.
This is because you are stupid, ignorant, & uninformed
For the unpteenth time, we all pay from the same F*cking chart.
Learn how to use that chart someday & maybe you will cease to be so naive & uninformed.
If you make $50k taxable, Bill Gates pays the same rate on his first $50k as you pay on yours..
What is not fair about that?
But hey, what do I expect from an Anti-American POS like you who thinks supporting his country is being punished.
"real dumb"
You continue to prove the ignorance and the fact you are a coward. The question was and is why should American's be punished for success? Why because the make more monies should they be taxed at a higher rate than others? Fuckthe tax tables, no deductions. Lets make it fair. Flat tax all pay the same rate.
You are just an envioussonofabitch with your hand out. You talk about others being anti-American, big talk from a coward who has never served his country in any way.
Answer the question, why should any one pay a higher rate on their income than you do? You are special, not likely you are a cowardly piece ofcrap.

<quoted text>That is because the goals of the educational system are no longer serving our students, nor are our students serving the needs of business. If the goal is to prepare students for the world of work, we should be offering trade and living skills classes as a prerequisite to graduation, rather than attempting to prepare them for college degrees which most of them will not pursue. In fact, even if we ARE successful at getting kids to apply for college post-graduation, we are still not preparing them to be productive citizens. More than 80% of the subjects offered at the high school level, contain material which the average student will never use again once they graduate. This has to change.
I agree 110%.

Ann Coulter shocked Sean Hannity on Wednesday when she conceded that she thinks Republicans should let tax rates for the rich go up.
House Republicans are currently battling President Obama over whether or not to hike taxes on the top 2 percent of earners in the negotiations over the so-called "fiscal cliff."
After Coulter started to say that Republicans should concede on taxes on the very rich, Hannity wondered why the House didn't just pass a bill extending the Bush tax cuts for everyone.
"OK fine, let's do that, but in the end, at some point, if the Bush tax cuts are repealed and everyone's taxes go up, I promise you Republicans will get blamed for it," she said. "It doesn't mean you cave on everything, but there are some things Republicans do that feed into what the media is telling America about Republicans."
"So are you saying that, for PR purposes, that they should give in to Obama on the tax rate?" Hannity asked.
"Not exactly, I--" Coulter said, before stopping herself and saying, "Well, yeah, I guess I am."
"You're saying capitulate to Obama?" Hannity stammered. "We don't have a revenue problem, Ann."
"We lost the election, Sean!" Coulter replied.

Republicans should make it very clear they are not going to stand in the way of the majority's wishes.

And remind them of the old adage, "Be careful what you wish for..."

Actually not.

Obama would have a much better chance of getting what he wants if he fought for it instead of doing infomercials.

The "fiscal cliff" is the best chance presently available to attack the deficit problem.

With anybody other than Obama, the market would be much higher now.

Recall last year the brouhaha caused by Leftist teachers who refused to use Red markers when grading student papers because Red was to harsh a color and hurt the student's feelings and self-image.
This sort of Airhead Liberalism pervades ALL of academia today.
Exactly. One of the many subtle examples.

However, teachers can no longer give a student an encouraging pat on the back or an understanding hug because it is considered politically incorrect and "inappropriate touching". Yet, teachers having sex with their students has become an epidemic.

A student can assault a teacher verbally or physically with little or no consequence. Yet, teachers are expected to know how to deal with this without crossing any politically correct lines and with little, if any, support from administrators and parents.

It's to the point where public schools are almost like a madhouse - run by out of control students and disgruntled parents with the politically correct police waiting to pounce on any teacher who dares use common sense in maintaining a disciplined and learning-conducive teaching environment.

If it happens just once in one school, it's happened too much.

But in some schools, especially inner city schools, this is more the norm rather than the exception.

He already tried working with the cons and they got "belligerent."

Seems to me all he needs to do is show how the cons truly are and let the people decide whose to blame.
