Barack Obama, our next President

QUOTE who="USAsince1680" <quoted text>
You have watched too many movies. Ladder 49, Towering Inferno and
Backdraft are not true life.
If you were, indeed, a firefighter with the US Forest Service then you
are to be commended but there is no comparison between that service
and city/county fire departments. US Forest members routinely transfer
to city/county fire departments because they know a good thing when
they see it.
I have spent time at local fire departments and ridden along with local police
officers across California. Fire Departments were BORING and, with a few
exceptions, so were police ride-a-longs. Since you admit that a career as a
firefighter is "90% boredom followed by 10% sheer terror" it would
only make sense
to pay firefighters on a sliding scale...minimum wage with an
allowance for hazardous duty pay when actually on the frontline of a
fire.
The truth is, the only time many firefighters are ever inside a
burning structure is
under controlled conditions during training. Standing on the outside,
with hoses in
hand is the norm. They will stand on the outside, patting themselves
on the back.
Not exactly heroic duty.
lol! Oops! An other lie on your part son!

That makes three consecutive!

I've never seen someone so intent on hacking themselves to death with their own machete!

But you're giving it your all!

no idiot, its a tax on the employer. Idiots like you think that won't be passed to the employee. Stupid fckn libturd.
Not your day, is it.

Explanation

"Under Section 9001 of the ACA, health insurance issuers and sponsors of self-funded group health plans will be assessed an excise tax on any benefits provided to employees that exceed a pre-determined threshold. This is the same tax that the general media has labeled as the “Cadillac” tax. The excise tax is imposed beginning in 2018."

Now class, who gets taxed?

All together now : Health insurance issuers & sponsors of self funded groups.

i.e. insurance companies

Certainly you have more than this, right?
I'll even ignore your ignorance in stating the Cadillac tax. It is not a tax on people, it is a tax on insurance companies. Try to become better informed, Eman, you're embarrassing yourself again today.
The problem with your analogy is the Union Insurance companies are owned by the unions themselves--who is going to pay the tax? Santa Claus? O'bama the Great? Illegal Messicans?

Inequality of the distribution of our laborers productivity in San Joes Calif. demonstrates that their austerity, to address their fiscal irresponsibility is prevalent even among some democrat leadership.
Services have been cut to their libraries and community centers closed, laying off and reducing salaries to their employees. Resulting in new facilities empty, from pot holes to home burglaries are increasing.
Silicon valley in decline. Similar to rust belt municipalities failures. Both exhibit how austerity does not address a solution, only increase their demise.
Democrat Xavier Campos councilman is perplexed as to what to do.
Democrat Mayor Chuck Reed is following the same ideology of cutting laborers pensions and increasing their co pays.
Democrat Rahm Emanuel of Chicago and Gina Raimondo treasurer of Rhode Island are of the same mind.“I think it needs to be led by Democrats,” Mr. Reed said.“It can’t become something Republicans are doing to unions.”
All and well yet though the colors are different from red to blue the results remain the same. Laborers will be required to work unlimited overtime to remain at the same levels that they now exist in. Relying on that much overtime being available has many laborers skeptical of their security and are leaving their positions.
Bankruptcy lawyer Karol K. Denniston of the Schiff Hardin firm stated; “There is growing recognition that there is not enough money to keep doing what they’re doing, and something’s got to change.”
Laborers have already received a 10% cut in their incomes and are told its not enough. Pension and health care will also need to be cut!
Thousands of laborers have been sent to the unemployment lines or early retirement. Veteran officers have taken their lifetime experiences with them. Vandalism is no longer controlled. Crime is increasing. Security is decreasing. No one wants to cut workers and yet there it is. City auditor Ms. Erickson questions “We have a huge opportunity here to get it right, And if we can’t get it right here in San Jose, where can we get it right?”
As with the republicans these democrats and in the article that was written by By RICK LYMAN and MARY WILLIAMS WALSH ; Struggling , San Jose Tests a Way to Cut Benefits
Published: September 23, 2013 N.Y. Times ;
All of them failed to address the root of their problem.“The Price Of Inequality” That is why they will continue to digress with austerity ideologies.
Technology boon made Silicone Valley the new gold rush of our 21st century. Apparently they have forgotten the lessons of the past. Gold mines wealth soon went to the few, a minority, with no distributions to their miners. Resulting with a haunting sprinkling of ghost towns.
Presently we are facing the same forces that promoted desolation to our mining towns of yesteryear. Today we call them Bankrupt towns. Whether we be red, white or blue, together we need stand together to reign the abusive inequality of our national wealth and income. http://neweconomy.net/content/wealth-inequali... video chart USA wealth Distributions.
Nay, Nay, Nay on increase taxes on the wealth and income of the minority is no longer acceptable. Royalties to the laborers, on their past productions, that are still being collected by the minority with no distributions, wouldn’t hurt. Oh Pensions that are stagnated and evaporated by political winds is not proving to be a secure reliable benefit for the elderly retiree. Its Time For A Cool , Cool Change…
You need a plane ride and a time machine, so you can go back to the U.S.S.R. several decades ago, Boris.

Islamic Terror Groups Are Killing Christians All Over The World And Obama Wants Us To Ally With Them

2013 Westgate shopping mall terrorist incident in Nairobi, Kenya - Photo by Anne KnightOver the past couple of days, we have witnessed some absolutely horrific examples of Islamic terror groups specifically targeting Christians and those from other non-Muslim religions. Sadly, this is not a new phenomenon. Radical Islamic jihadists are constantly attacking churches and slaughtering Christians all over the planet. The recent events in Pakistan, Kenya and Egypt may have taken this persecution to a new level, but this is just the continuation of a trend that has been building for years. Unfortunately, Barack Obama does not seem too concerned about Islamic terrorism. In fact, he specifically directed that “all references to Islam” be removed from terrorism training materials that the federal government uses. If that wasn’t bad enough, now Obama is actually supplying weapons to the radical jihadist rebels that want to take over Syria, and he appears to be very ready to use the U.S. military to attack the Assad regime directly if “negotiations” with the Syrian government fail. In essence, Obama wants the United States to be allies with psychotic jihadists that have the exact same radical philosophy that those who are killing Christians in Pakistan, Kenya and Egypt have.(Read More.....

Nation Of Sickos: Should We Be Concerned About The Moral Collapse Of America?

The Moral Collapse Of America - Photo by NazzzHow bad does it have to get before we admit that America is an absolute cesspool of filth and wickedness? The horrific Navy Yard shooting that took place on Monday is yet another reminder that the thin veneer of civilization that we all take for granted is rapidly disappearing. At this point, nobody is fully safe anywhere in the United States at any time. Sadly, the Navy Yard shooting was far from an isolated incident. Every day, there are news reports that detail some of the most heinous crimes that you could possibly imagine. In this article, you are going to read about incredibly disturbing things that sickos have done to animals, young children and elderly Americans. The goal is not to entertain you. Rather, I hope to spark a discussion about the moral collapse of America. The United States has become a nation of perverts, sickos and psychopaths, and we need to ask ourselves some very honest questions about why this is happening. No matter what other solutions we may come up with politically and economically, this country is not going to have any kind of a future unless we are able to address the moral decay that is rotting the foundations of this nation at an absolutely astounding pace.(Read More.....) http://endoftheamericandream.com/

Under Barack Obama, the U.S. economy has performed worse than it did under any other president since the end of the Great Depression. After every other recession since World War II, the U.S. economy always regained what was lost and got even stronger before the next recession began. During this “economic recovery”, we have not even come close to getting back to where we were in 2008. In fact, the number of Americans living in poverty and the number of Americans that are dependent on the government both continue to explode even as Barack Obama runs up trillions of dollars of new debt. Anyone that believes that Barack Obama is going to “fix the economy” if he is given another four years in the White House has taken way too many sips of the Obama kool-aid. The truth is that Barack Obama is not going to save you. Barack Obama has royally messed up our economy (along with a lot of other things) and that is not something we should be thanking him for.(Read More.....) http://endoftheamericandream.com/...

15 Reasons Why The Obamacare Decision Is A Mind Blowing Disaster For America
By Michael Snyder, on June 28th, 2012




You can almost always count on the Supreme Court to do the wrong thing. In fact, just about every major decision by the U.S. Supreme Court over the last 40 years has been bad for America. Many were hoping that the Supreme Court would strike down Obamacare, but the truth is that we all should have known better than to expect them to get something right. So now America is headed for a complete and total disaster as Obamacare is fully implemented over the next several years. Obamacare is going to absolutely shred the infrastructure of our medical system, it is going to send health insurance premiums soaring, it is going to dramatically expand the size and the scope of government, it is going to fundamentally alter the relationships between doctors and their patients and it is one of the largest tax increases in U.S. history. Not only that, it is also going to add about a trillion dollars to our national debt over the next decade. So no, the Obamacare decision is not good news. Obamacare was one of the worst pieces of legislation in American history, and now we are stuck with it.

It was a 5-4 decision to uphold Obamacare, and the swing vote was Chief Justice John Roberts who was appointed by George W. Bush.

After the vote today, it is hard to have any faith in the U.S. Supreme Court. Many constitutional conservatives kept voting for Republicans in the hope that the direction of the Supreme Court would change, but it hasn’t.

Prior to the Obama administration, Republicans controlled the White House for 20 out of 28 years. If Republicans were going to fundamentally change the nature of the Supreme Court, that was their opportunity.

But it didn’t happen.

Instead, what we have is a Supreme Court that is dominated by judges that have very little respect for the U.S. Constitution. When I was in law school I got to study the Supreme Court pretty closely and I quickly realized that most of the time they simply do whatever they want to do and they make up whatever reasons they can to justify their decisions.

That sounds really bad, but that is the truth.

The more things heat up with radical Islam, the more silent moderate Muslim clerics and prominent peaceful Muslims become.

I know they fear for their safety, but so do I. If nothing else Bob Beckel says is true, his strong belief that Muslim students should no longer be allowed to come to this country and Muslim mosques cannot be built until we hear a collective outcry from the rest of the Muslim world has a clear ring of truth.

Which actually surprises me considering the source.

And thanks to the Supreme Court, we are stuck with Obamacare – at least for now.

The following are 15 reasons why the Obamacare decision is a mind blowing disaster for America….

#1 According to the U.S. Supreme Court, the federal government has the power to force you to buy private goods and services. Now that this door has been opened, what else will we be forced to buy in the future?

#2 Obamacare is another step away from individual liberty and another step toward a “nanny state” where the government dominates our lives from the cradle to the grave.

#3 The IRS is now going to be given the task of hunting down and penalizing millions of Americans that do not have any health insurance. In fact, the Obama administration has given the IRS 500 million extra dollars “outside the normal appropriations process” to help them enforce the provisions of Obamacare that they are in charge of overseeing.

#4 Obamacare imposes more than 20 new taxes on the American people. You can find a comprehensive list of Obamacare taxes right here. If you love paying higher taxes, then you are going to absolutely love Obamacare once it is fully implemented.

#5 In an attempt to “control costs” and “promote efficiency”, Obamacare limits the treatment options that doctors and patients can consider. This is likely to result in a decrease in life expectancy in the United States.

#6 Obamacare is going to impose nightmarish paperwork burdens on doctors, hospitals and the rest of the healthcare system. This is going to significantly increase our healthcare costs as a nation.

#7 Obamacare is going to send health insurance premiums soaring. This is especially true for younger Americans.

#8 Many small businesses are going to be absolutely crushed by the provisions in Obamacare that require them to provide expensive health insurance coverage for their employees. This is going to make them even less competitive with companies in other countries where businesses are not required to provide healthcare for their workers. This is also going to make it even less attractive for businesses to hire new employees.

#9 Obamacare is going to make the emerging doctor shortage in America a lot worse. Surveys have found that we could potentially see hundreds of thousands of doctors leave the medical profession because of Obamacare.

#10 Obamacare has already forced the cancellation of dozens of doctor-owned hospitals.

#11 Obamacare is going to result in a much bigger federal government. In order to fully implement all of the provisions of Obamacare, hordes of new government bureaucrats will be required.

#12 Thanks to Obamacare, you are going to have to wait much longer to see a doctor. Just look at what happened once Romneycare was implemented in Massachusetts….
