On top of that it won't amount to squat, it's purely a game Omama is trying to play but people are tired of his games. They want answers to our problems and Omama doesn't have them. When Omama says the taxes on the wealthy will help reduce the deficit, he's FOS and everyone with more than one brain cell knows it. You're a dumbazz pops. Wake up! Four years in office and he's done nothing, well except spend money that isn't his. Typical for a common garden variety con man. DoDo bird. LMAO!!
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 canít 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 Obamaís but unlike most Republicans heís pretty sure about his arithmetic.

You've pretty much figured it all out, haven't you? Like the presidential election? Like the Supremes' decision on Obamacare? Lke the 175 verdicts on Obama's BC? Like the birther mayor (ha ha) of Jacksonville? Like Obama losing Florida? Like Obama slipping in Michigan? Like Obama losing some black and a lot of latino votes? And the list goes on. Yes, Rogue, you've got it all figured out, your credibility is surely on the rise, ha ha.
Itís hard to imagine a consortium of individuals who actually thrive on being dead wrong about everything. In birfistan Rogue is not the exception heís the rule. I suppose these dire Obama predictions will continue right on through 16 and beyond. LOL

Obama suppressing the military vote: Overseas service members unable to access the polls Washington Examiner
The men and women who risk their lives to preserve freedom for all Americans are at risk of losing one of the very freedoms they protect.
Overseas military absentee voting was abysmal in 2008 ó only 20 percent of overseas military turned in absentee ballots ó and it looks like itís going to be even worse in 2012. In Virginia and Ohio, military and overseas ballots have fallen 70 percent since 2008, according to the Military Voter Protection Project.
Ohio received only 9,700 ballots in September, whereas in September 2008, it received 32,000.
So, why arenít soldiers voting? In many cases they simply canít, and they have their commander in chief, President Obama, to blame.
Hundreds of thousands of our uniformed personnel have been shut out of the process, and we can thank the Obama administration and even the Obama campaign for this tragedy. After poor turnout in 2008, Congress passed the Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment (Move) Act to ensure that all military are provided with the opportunity to vote.
The act put standards in place, such as mailing absentee ballots no later than 45 days before an election and requiring installation voting assistance offices to be built at most military bases and posts.
The Pentagon has utterly failed to meet these standards.

Why Obama was "Chosen"
I've been asked by readers here and elsewhere "Why would anyone choose a Kenyan name Barack Hussein Obama as a Manchurian candidate?". This is a reasonable question and one I once asked. The answer is simple and logical, once you're considered it. The key to understanding is that Hussein Obama is not the only person chosen by America's enemies to infiltrate our nation and try to seize the reigns of power.

Normally the unemployment rate goes down the closer we get to Christ Mass as people get temporary jobs usually with retailers. October's unemployment rate went UP from Septembers. What will November's unemployment rate be? We will know of Pearl Harbor Day, Dec. 7th. Will this be Obama's Pearl Harbor Day?

Last weeks new unemployment claims dropped to 393,000 with the Average four week rate being 403,250.
http://www.dol.gov/opa/media/press/eta/ui/cur...
This is very, very bad and it would be much higher except for the fact that many people who lost their jobs did not have enough credits to refile.
The U-6 unemployment rate is 14.6% which means 23 MILLION Americans are either unemployed or under employed. Yep, Obamanomics is wurkin' as planned!

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

Sounds like these exes are giving their love another shot.

According to TMZ, Hugh Hefner, 86, and Crystal Harris, 26, are engaged again after Harris called off their first wedding in June 2011. The couple is set to tie the knot at the Playboy mansion on New Year's Eve -- and don't expect Harris to be a runaway bride twice.

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

WASHINGTON (CBS DC)Ė 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.

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 Interiorís 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. Thatís a far cry from the June sale, which brought in $2.6 billion on leases for 2.4 million acres.

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!!!

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.
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.
