Openly Bribing Corps?????????WTF?????????

News Flash,

Obama desperate,breaks law,to help with elections,
makes innocent tax payers criminals!!

This maniacal narcissistic will do whatever he wants to get reelected. Can you imagine the media outrage had a republican tried this.

Since the taxpayers will be paying the cost of breaking the law, could they be considered accomplices????

OMB: We’ll Reimburse Employers for WARN Act Fallout
Alana Goodman [email protected] 10.01.2012 - 4:03 PM

The Office of Management and Budget is now promising to compensate defense contractors for any legal penalties that would stem from violating the WARN Act, a federal law that requires employers to warn employees at least 60 days in advance of mass layoffs. The Obama administration had already been urging contractors to ignore the WARN Act in the case of the looming sequestration cuts, since the 60-day-minimum would mean hundreds of thousands of employees could get notices of pending layoffs just days before the presidential election.

But it’s one thing for the Obama administration to tell contractors that they shouldn’t worry about the law. It’s quite another to promise that the cost of any resulting lawsuits will be covered by the government (read: the taxpayers):

But the Friday guidance from the Office of Management and Budget raised the stakes in the dispute, telling contractors that they would be compensated for legal costs if layoffs occur due to contract cancellations under sequestration — but only if the contractors follow the Labor guidance.

The guidance said that if plant closings or mass layoffs occur under sequestration, then “employee compensation costs for [Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification] WARN act liability as determined by a court” would be paid for covered by the contracting federal agency.

There’s also a catch: employers have to agree to play by the “Department of Labor’s guidance” if they want any potential legal costs covered. The DOL’s guidance asks them not to send out layoff notices before the election.

That seems to have satisfied defense contractors. Today, Lockheed Martin announced it would not issue layoff notices in advance of the sequestration cuts. Where is the campaign media on this? The Obama administration just told defense contractors that taxpayers would pay for any legal penalties for not complying with a law that would have complicated Obama’s reelection campaign. Does that not warrant some scrutiny, or do we need a billionth article on Romney’s “47 percent gaffe” instead?

What a stinking Chicago Ghetto Style Cess pool this current admin
has made of our WH????? UGH..

Listen People, Do You Realy Want A President That Truly Believes This Crap?
"Celestial" marriage, as this eternal marriage is often called, is essential for Mormon women. Without being celestially married to a holder of the priesthood, a woman cannot be "saved" (Green 154). Mary Ettie Smith, a Mormon woman who left the church and Utah in 1856, said that "women do not amount to much in themselves," and that women in those times were often celestially married to men they had no intention of ever living with, so that they could have a man who would be able to get them into heaven (Green 154).
In the temple marriage ceremony, women are given secret names known only to their husbands, for identification purposes, so their husbands can pull them through to "the other side" after death (Laake 118). During the marriage ceremony, until 1990, men made their temple covenants directly to God, while the women had to make their temple covenants to their husbands (Laake 328). This means that while male temple workers representing God lead the men through the cloth representing the veil between worlds, husbands, symbolically, lead their wives through. Women also promise to obey their husbands in everything as long as their husbands obey God (Laake 108). As part of the ceremony, women also receive their endowments. These are sacred ordinances and promises which make a person eligible to enter the highest level of heaven, and Mormons receive them on their first visit to the temple (Laake 93). Men usually receive their endowments when they enter the temple to become a priesthood holder or go on a mission, but women enter the temple for the first time to be married.
After death, while their husbands are creating and ruling over planets, the women have the questionable honor of bearing his "spirit children" for eternity. These spirit children descend to their Father's planet to inhabit bodies as mortals, who are then ruled over by him. Mormon Doctrine states that these celestially married men and women "will live eternally in the family unit and have spirit children, thus becoming Eternal Fathers and Eternal Mothers" (516). A man who has multiple wives can beget many more spirit children, making him much more powerful. Birth control is, of course, very strongly discouraged. Ambitious Mormon men must beget many children with as many wives as possible, for "their glory (in heaven) is in proportion to the number of their wives and children" (Snowden 141).

Perhaps your racial hatred is the primary motivation for your desire for a race war, one that in your imagination you win, right?
I'd suggest you not start that race war you want.
I'd also suggest you not start that class war you want, either.
I don't think either will end as you fantasize.
And, you should be thinking about what you will do when the pendulum swings back. Just keep pushing that pendulum. It will swing back at least as far as you push it. Perhaps when it does swing back, there will be people doing exactly what the Democrats are doing now and add a little push to it, too.
You seem to forget you're dealing with a culture that has not been anyone's subjects for over 200 years. Just how are you going to convince that culture to change that and become subjects?
An idiot can predict what will happen next.
Try reading it again.

Ryan is on record as saying his $716 Billion in Medicare cuts is part of the 'baseline' of his budget.


"The Congressional Budget Office concluded the cuts -- which do not come out of the Medicare trust fund -- actually make Medicare more efficient and extend the life of the program. Additionally, all but four members of the house GOP voted for those same cuts in passing Ryan's budget plan."


Why you attacking Obama for exactly what the Republiclown Congress voted for??

You obviously never read Ryan's budget plan, and he's not talking about it anymore!!

You lose again, Dweeb. But you're used to it.

Send Romney your money, minions.
Only in Las Vegas have the Republicans ran more ads (and without much impact; Obama is ahead in most Nevada polls).
As you can see in the Wesleyan report, in most markets, it hasn't even been close. In Norfolk, Virginia, for example, Obama and allies ran 3,387 ads compared to just 1,583 for Romney and his allies.
When the history of this campaign is written, there could be be a chapter on how the Democrats managed to bury Romney with a barrage of [largely unanswered] negative ads in the battleground states.

More Race Incitement in Obama Speeches from 2007. It’s like that whole “post-racial” thing was just a scam or something.

UPDATE: If this is “old news,” as some are saying (see Elizabeth’s post just above) then it raises two questions:(1) Why is the backlash so desperate, then? and (2) Does Obama seem less angry or divisive today than he did before being elected?

The Clinton White House had more than “openly called for the overthrow of [Saddam Hussein’s] government.” Under President Clinton, the objective of regime change in Iraq had become American law.

On October 31, 1998, President Clinton signed Public Law 105-338, known as the Iraq Liberation Act. The purpose of the Iraq Liberation Act was to “establish a program to support a transition to democracy in Iraq.” The law also stated that the “sense of the Congress regarding United States policy toward Iraq” is “[i]t should be the policy of the United States to support efforts to remove the regime headed by Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq and to promote the emergence of a democratic government to replace that regime.”

Obama insisted we need a series of new federal programs, including one to teach punctuality to the poor:
"We can’t expect them to have all the skills they need to work. They may need help with basic skills, how to shop, how to show up for work on time, how to wear the right clothes, how to act appropriately in an office. We have to help them get there."
This is the fault of whom? This is to blame on what?

You know this is art of programs like job training for welfare recipients.

I mean, you do want to get people off of welfare or do you want them there so you can bitch about them 24/7?

As polling guru Nate Silver explains:
Pollsters, at least if they are following the industry’s standard guidelines , do not choose how many Democrats, Republicans or independent voters to put into their samples — any more than they choose the number of voters for Mr. Obama or Mitt Romney. Instead, this is determined by the responses of the voters that they reach after calling random numbers from telephone directories or registered voter lists…
Party identification is not a hard-and-fast demographic characteristic like race, age or gender. Instead, it can change in reaction to news and political events from the party conventions to the Sept. 11 attacks. Since changes in public opinion are precisely what polls are trying to measure, it would defeat the purpose of conducting a survey if pollsters insisted that they knew what it was ahead of time.
Here’s the deal:“independents” are the largest group of self-identified voters today. But there are very few genuine independents — most lean towards one major party or the other. So, voters’ partisan self-identification is a proxy for their enthusiasm — when a party has a strong candidate and a solid platform, the number of people who identify with that party rises, and when they have an awful candidate it falls.
