Romney already got his butt kicked on Libya. He demonstrates his total lack of experience in international affairs.
Before you blame people, you need to be sure. That takes time.
It is sad how Romney is using the deaths of these people for political purposes.
It is actually sad you are so gullible. Lying to the american people for political protection, as Obama did, is not presidential.

You must view Nixon as a national hero.

That's why they hate unions.
I saw an article about unions that said only about 52% of union people will vote for Obama.
You'd think the right would try and court the union vote since its already so close to even.
But no.
They want to destroy unions for the exact reason you stated.
Unions were once great institutioins, and they acomplished great things for workers. Now unions are ruled by greed and protect lazy, substandard workers.

The Case Against Slave Reparations
Submitted by NLPC Staff on Wed, 05/13/2009

This 48-page monograph was written by NLPC President Peter Flaherty and NLPC ...olicy John Carlisle. First published in 2004, it was extensively updated in 2008. NLPC recently gave permission to Cengage Learning to reprint pages 18-20 in a forthcoming book titled Global Viewpoints: Slavery.

http://nlpc.org/stories/2009/04/29/monograph-...

Shakedown Via the Courts
Slave reparations ... High-profile lawyers have
filed class-action lawsuits against
corporations that they allege
profited directly or indirectly from
slavery. According to Brooklyn Law
School Professor Anthony J. Sebok,
..l under successor corporation laws.
These laws facilitate lawsuits against
companies that have been sold or
merged many times.
25
...
26
The
suit puts the value of slave labor at
$1.4 trillion—almost as much as
the federal government collects in
individual and corporate income
taxes each year. One of the plaintiffs
was Deadria Farmer-Paellmann, an
activist attorney who is credited
with helping to initiate the current
reparations movement. In 2000,
Farmer-Paellmann, then a student
... ney, a law professor
at Emory University in Atlanta,
says,“If I’m a stockholder and the
company decides to give away some
of my money [for reparations], I may
not be very pleased.”
27
.. CSX was formed in 1980
and represented the end product
of numerous railroad mergers and
acquisitions going back decades.
FleetBoston Financial Corporation
can be traced to hundreds of 6 www.nlpc.org
predecessor banks, only one of which
the plaintiffs can single out for its
links to slavery. Providence Bank,
which no longer exists, allegedly
profited from a loan it made to a
Providence, RI slave trader.
28
...
But the reparations movement is
not interested in legal probity. After
Farmer-Paellmann filed her suit,
reparations suits against corporations
proliferated. Richard E. Barber, a
former deputy executive director
of the NAACP, filed a lawsuit in
Newark, NJ targeting New York
Life Insurance Co., the Wall Street
investment firm Brown Brothers
Harriman & Co., and the railway
company Norfolk Southern.
“This is just another step in a
series of upcoming political and
legal moves that will address the
issue of reparations for American
slave descendants,” said Edward
Fagan, Barber’s attorney. Fagan was
involved in the Holocaust-related
lawsuits against German companies
and Swiss banks. He vowed to file
similar slave reparations lawsuits all
over the country.
... tobacco and railroad
firms. These included JP Morgan
Chase & Co., Brown & Williamson
Tobacco Corp., RJ Reynolds
Tobacco, Union Pacific and Lehman
Brothers. Reparations lawyers argued
that the corporations’ ancestors
profited by insuring slave ships,
using slaves, or financing businesses
built with slave labor...ducation that would
benefit African Americans.
But reparations activists lost this
round. On January 26, 2004, Illinois
.. Congress to pass a bill
to study reparations and a national
disclosure bill based on Chicago’s
disclosure law.
The activists are currently appealing
Norgle’s decision to the U.S.
Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals.
Lawsuits are just one part of a broader
strategy to agitate for reparations
compensation. After the unfavorable
January ruling, Farmer-Paellmann
said that advocates will start using
other tactics to pressure companies:
“The next stages will include boycotts
and ads in university (newspapers)
and major press.”
33
... An unidentified lawyer
for one of the targeted corporations
says business believes the reparations
issue will fade away because it doesn’t
resonate with the public.

Obama is pro-abortion. He won't be satisfied until they are available at Walmart on the spot.

By the way you should be pro-choice. I am certain your mother would have picked abortion if she had the choice way back when you were born.

The two previous Democratic pres. nominees:

1. John Kerry: net worth 240 million

2. Al Gore: net worth 100 million

These two wealthy millionaires live a pampered life of luxury, while the 99% are starving.

Just think if each of them had only donated 25% of their net worth to support the occupy movement. The money could have gone to job training for the 99%. The money could go educational programs to help occupiers get college degrees. The money could been used by occupy leaders to help reduce income inequality.

Kerry and Gore are fat cat millionaires who fiddled while the occupy movement burned.

Little Red Hen 2012
"Who will help me plant my wheat?" asked the little red hen.
"Not I," said the cow.
"Not I," said the duck.
"Not I," said the pig.
"Not I," said the goose.
"Then I will do it by myself." She planted her crop and the wheat grew and ripened.
"Who will help me reap my wheat?" asked the little red hen.
"Not I," said the duck.
"Out of my classification," said the pig.
"I'd lose my seniority," said the cow.
"I'd lose my unemployment compensation," said the goose.
"Then I will do it by myself," said the little red hen, and so she did.
"Who will help me bake the bread?" asked the little red hen.
"That would be overtime for me," said the cow.
"I'd lose my welfare benefits," said the duck.
"I'm a dropout and never learned how," said the pig.
"If I'm to be the only helper, that's discrimination," said the goose.
"Then I will do it by myself," said the little red hen.
She baked five loaves and held them up for all of her neighbors to see. They wanted some and, in fact, demanded a share but the little red hen said, "No, I shall eat all five loaves."
"Excess profits!" cried the cow..(Nancy Pelosi)
"Capitalist leech!" screamed the duck.(Barbara Boxer)
"I demand equal rights!" yelled the goose.(Jesse Jackson)
The pig just grunted in disdain..(Harry Reid)
And they all painted 'Unfair!' picket signs and marched around and around the little red hen, shouting obscenities.
When the farmer (Obama) came he said to the little red hen, "You must not be so greedy."
"But I earned the bread," said the little red hen.
"Exactly," said Barack the farmer. "That is what makes our free enterprise system so wonderful. Anyone in the barnyard can earn as much as he wants. But under our modern government regulations, the productive workers must divide the fruits of their labor with those who are lazy and idle."
And they all lived happily ever after, including the little red hen, who smiled and clucked, "I am grateful, for now I truly understand."
But her neighbors became quite disappointed in her. She never again baked bread because she joined the 'party' and got her bread free. And all the Democrats smiled.'Fairness' had been established.
Individual initiative had died but nobody noticed; perhaps no one cared so long as there was free bread that 'the rich' were paying for.
And perhaps....this is the end..........
And the next week, there was no bread, or anything else to eat. So, they all starved equally.
EPILOGUE
Bill Clinton is getting $12 million for his memoirs.
Hillary got $8 million for hers.
That's $20 million for the memories from two people, who for eight years repeatedly testified, under oath, that they couldn't remember anything.
DO WE LIVE IN A GREAT BARNYARD OR WHAT?
November is coming
Truer words have never been spoken!

Obama made no mention of the Occupy movement in the debates.

Obama, a community organizer, with a background in organizing street protests, made no mention of the occupy movement.

We need to send a powerful message that occupy is not to be overlooked.

Vote your progressive conscience.
