<quoted text>Even socialist Sweden just is lowering their taxes. The Swedes are smarter than O'bama-damn.
STOCKHOLM--The Swedish government Thursday said the corporate tax rate will be lowered to 22% from 26.3% in its 2013 budget proposal.
"This is to improve the conditions for new jobs and investments in Sweden. The significant lowering of corporate tax is expected to strengthen the investor climate and growth in Sweden," the government said.

Someone get Sweden on the phone to call the idiot in the White House-look at what their own government said. Even Socialist Sweden is falling apart under entitlements and all that health care crap. They are running out of everyone else's money.
Stopping a Financial Crisis, the Swedish Way
By CARTER DOUGHERTY

Published: September 22, 2008

A banking system in crisis after the collapse of a housing bubble. An economy hemorrhaging jobs. A market-oriented government struggling to stem the panic. Sound familiar?

It does to Sweden. The country was so far in the hole in 1992 — after years of imprudent regulation, short-sighted economic policy and the end of its property boom — that its banking system was, for all practical purposes, insolvent.

Sweden did not just bail out its financial institutions by having the government take over the bad debts. It extracted pounds of flesh from bank shareholders before writing checks. Banks had to write down losses and issue warrants to the government.

That strategy held banks responsible and turned the government into an owner. When distressed assets were sold, the profits flowed to taxpayers, and the government was able to recoup more money later by selling its shares in the companies as well

Now, from Libya, reports are that even while the Misrata rebels (NATO allies responsible for the murder of hundreds of Libyans, including Moatessem Qaddafi) attempted to scale the petroleum platforms in Brega (an important oil town in Libya),..(10/12/2012)

---------
Geo-political expert Dr. Webster Tarpley also told the Alex Jones Show today that wider war is being planned for Libya, while the count of simultaneous U.S. wars has reached five conflicts– including Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya and Yemen. The potential for an even greater spread of regional conflict could well provoke a World War III scenario, drawing in tenuous nations like Syria, Lebanon, Iran or even Saudi Arabia, according to Tarpley.

For his part, President Obama has brushed off demands to answer to Congress for continuing military action beyond the 60 day limit set under the war powers act. The engagement he first claimed would be over in mere days, Obama then dubbed a “kinetic action” rather than a war. Further, Obama has justified his commitment of American forces under a United Nations mandate, unconcerned by his own admission with the will of Congress. Now, with significant overlap in reports, we can confirm an apparent decision by Obama to support wider war and a longer-term involvement in Libya.( infowars.com 6/15/2011)

Saddams WMD was transferred to Syria before the invasion.

All intelligence agencies, Brits, French, Italian, CIA said that Saddam had WMD. 500 tons of yellowcake uranium was found. WMD was found. Plans to quickly restart production was found.

Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals (originally titled Rules for Revolution)

Truth is truth. Period. End of Statement.
Here's some truth for you:

The Republicans gave to the Democrats a declining 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollar deficit in January, 2007, after the dot-com bust and fighting a global war the Arabs started.
What have the Democrats done to that deficit since? Did you say increase it by ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED PERCENT?
The Republicans gave to the Democrats a 5 trillion dollar debt in January, 2007.
What have the Democrats done to that debt since? Did you say they more than tripled it to the 16 trillion dollars it is today?

And why hasn't the government been able to budget itself since Obama took office? Do you think the Democrats' inability to budget a government is related to the ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED PERCENT increase of the deficit and tripling of the total debt?
Only an idiot would think not.

Legal debates - UN security council resolutions

Debate about the legality of the 2003 invasion of Iraq under international law, centers around ambiguous language in parts of UN Resolution 1441 (2002).[52] The UN Charter in Article 39 states: "The Security Council shall determine the existence of any threat to the peace, breach of the peace, or act of aggression and shall make recommendations, or decide what measures shall be taken in accordance with Articles 41 and 42, to maintain or restore international peace and security". If the Security Council determines that the charter's requirements are not met, international law then describes it a war of aggression.

The position of the US and UK is that the invasion was authorized by a series of UN resolutions dating back to 1990 and that since the UN security council has made no Article 39[53] finding of illegality that no illegality exists.

He can't leave the country, he'll be arrested. He's hiding out in Texas where there's a sign that says "No Negroes Allowed", they have to smuggle Condi in, in the trunk.
