Hugh Hefner, Crystal Harris Engaged Again: Couple Set To Wed On New Year's Eve (REPORT)

Study: American Households Hit 43-Year Low In Net Worth; November 30, 2012

WASHINGTON (CBS DC)– The median net worth of American households has dropped to a 43-year low as the lower and middle classes appear poorer and less stable than they have been since 1969.

According to a recent study by New York University economics professor Edward N. Wolff, median net worth is at the decades-low figure of $57,000 (in 2010 dollars). And as the numbers in his study reflect, the situation only appears worse when all the statistics are taken as a whole.

Our deficits began in 2002 Mr. Liars and so far have never recovered. One would assume that launching two wars while cutting taxes would be an unviable proposition, but apparently not so when Republicans are at the helm. In other words you can’t buy a new house and cars then quit your job and complain you have a spending problem.
But to your point, any new revenue coming in will reduce the deficit no matter how slight and 968 billion is nothing to sneeze at. Ben Stein is no friend of Obama’s but unlike most Republicans he’s pretty sure about his arithmetic.

Year of our lord 2000, GWB loses popular vote but is nevertheless elected president by the supreme court. GWB is left a budget surplus of $400 billion by president Clinton. He manages a modest surplus the first year. Then grants huge tax cuts to his rich buddies, and initiates Afghanistan and Iraq war. GWB does the unthinkable, the unimaginable, reels off 7 (SEVEN) deficits in a row, and if that is not bad enough, through mismanagemetn, failure of govt oversight of Wall Street, brokers, bankers, mortgage moguls and assorted crooks, presides over a final twelve months of presidency that may be as bad or worse than the great depression. Not satisfied with dragging the US in such a financial mess, he sucks the rest of the world in with him.

Obama is elected. Assorted nutballs, birthers, green partyers and various nazis, want those disastrous 7 years and recession fixed in 4 years. Yeaaaah. Well, it didn't happen. The damage was so bad, so deep, so horrendous, folks, it can't be fixed in 4 years, maybe not in 8. Obama avoided catastrophy, plain and simple, and never more so when he prevented "offshore" Romney from gaining the presidency.

If Europe can even slightly right its ship, the US will continue recovering, and the rest of the world will follow. Americans duly and rightfully re-elected president Obama on November 6, a second time, and without the assistance of the supreme court. Hail to your chief.

Sooo, what is the BIG difference between June and November? Well, in June most investors were very optimistic that there would be a Republican in the White House early next year and now we know that will not happen. And everyone knows Obama is anti-petroleum!
You see, if investors see little profit in their future, they switch there investments. Just think of all the jobs that will not materialize next year because investors are still worried about Obama will do.

Gulf of Mexico Lease Sale Draws Little Attention
Posted: November 30, 2012

The US Department of Interior’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) on Wednesday held a lease sale for approximately 21 million acres of US outer continental shelf open for development in the western Gulf of Mexico. The total of all bids came to $157.68 million for 653,00 acres. That’s a far cry from the June sale, which brought in $2.6 billion on leases for 2.4 million acres.

The budget surplus was left not by anything Bill Clinton did but by ..... Newt Gingrich. If Bill Clinton had not signed four or Newts balanced budgets, seven of the ten point of the Contract with America and the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997, there would have been not surplus.

Now I will address the budgets under G.W. All where Speaker Dennis Haster's budgets and Hastert is a County Club RINO. He honchoed the first six budgets and then San Fran Nan Pelosi became Speaker and her first budget, FY2008, had double the deficit that Hastert's had. And the very last Bush Budget was trashed by San Fran Nan and totally rewritten and signed into law by ..... BARRACK H. OBAMA and the deficit was THREE TIMES what Hastert's last budget was!!!
2002 $157.8 Billion Deficit $201.02 Billion Deficit R D R

2003 $377.6 Billion Deficit $470.82 Billion Deficit R R R

I know Libtardian logic, if anything bad is happening, it is the Republican's fault. But if anything good happens, it is the Democrat would did it.
Now, how has Obama done?

I'm sorry, but you cannot prove reality wrong through reductio ad absurdum. You can only prove a premise to be false that is inconsistent with reality.
The reality is that an alien criminal who commits a crime in the US by being tried and convicted in US courts is in fact subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. This fact proves your premise (only citizens are subject to the jurisdiction of the United States) incorrect, but you cannot prove REALITY incorrect. REALITY proves your premise to be pure fantasy.
Indeed, if "subject to the jurisdiction of the United States" is equivalent to "subject to the jurisdiction of the Constitution" the reality of aliens being subject to the jurisdiction of the United States would make it true that they are "subject to the jurisdiction of the constitution."
Again, a false premise cannot prove reality unreal.
That is, of course, unless you live in a dream world.
Now go put your play robe and gavel away in your toy box where they belong and grow up.
quite the contrary, to bind a German citizen to the Constitution is Unconstitutional, this is a process that only he can do through the naturalization process, not through an act of lawlessness.
Does the German criminal have a US citizenship after his crime spree? According to your theory he does.
Sorry, only US Citizens are subject to the US Constitution, which has jurisdiction over the US, remember it is the supreme law of the land.

Sorry, only US Citizens are subject to the US Constitution, which has jurisdiction over the US, remember it is the supreme law of the land.
The rationale of having the phrase "subject to the jurisdiction thereof" in the first sentence of the 14th Amendment wherein it set forth who is a citizen of the United States is to EXCLUDE indians who were members of tribes that existed within the boundaries of the United States. Congress acknowledged that INDIANS were not citizens despite the fact that they lived with the borders of the United States.

That is why the Civil Rights Act of 1866 had language that excluding INDIANS as citizens:

"Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That all persons born in the United States and not subject to any foreign power, EXCLUDING INDIANS NOT TAXED, are hereby declared to be citizens of the United States"

In Elk v. Wilkins, 112 U.S. 94 (1884), Justice Gray noted the legal status of Indians tribes and their members:

The Indian tribes, being within the territorial limits of the United States, were not, strictly speaking, foreign States; but they were ALIEN NATIONS, DISTINCT POLITICAL COMMUNITIES, with whom the United States might and habitually did deal, as they thought fit, either through treaties made by the President and Senate, or through acts of Congress in the ordinary forms of legislation. The members of those tribes OWED IMMEDIATE ALLEGIANCE TO THEIR SEVERAL TRIBES. and were not part of the people of the United States. Id at 99

The drafters of the 14th Amendment understood that Indians were not citizens of the United States and as such incorporated "subject to the jurisdictioni thereof" language in the 14th Amendment to EXCLUDE them in setting forth who is a citizen of the United States.

Your folderol theory that this language also exludes aliens as being subject of the jurisdiction of the United States has no basis in fact or in law.

Do yourself a favor and read the congressional debates during the drafting of the 14th Amendment.

As usual, you DOH all that you read. oh thickest one. Who ever said Rogue was responsible, save that I opined that he was of the happiest of dolts when things go wrong with what he calls his country?. There is no containing his glee when numbers are bad, so long as it spites Obama?
