Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Perhaps that Jesus’ way of telling you to stop drinking. Friends don’t let friends drive drunk. Thankfully for those suffering real emergencies, FEMA is there to help. President Obama would never “privatize” FEMA as Romney advocated.
Ah,yes FEMA. Where else can you spend 100 dollars to make sure that person in need gets 10 dollars in aid?

Our ruling
The ad says Romney "left Massachusetts $1 billion in debt."
That is inaccurate or misleading in several ways. The Red, White and Blue fund cherry-picks the highest number from a range of estimates. Also, it was not a "debt." It was just one projected shortfall for the upcoming year -- and one that ultimately didn't materialize.
Like most states, Massachusetts must have a balanced budget every year. And in keeping with that requirement, Patrick, the incoming governor, submitted a balanced budget within a few months.
We rate the claim False.
http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/state...
I guess Romney's comments on the 47% is a false claim. I guess Romney's support for Atkin and Mourdock are also false claims. We also can add Romney turning his back on 170 workers pleas who begged him to save their jobs is another false claim. Romney killing jobs Bain is another false claim. And Romney hiding his taxes is another false claim? Right.

Bill Clinton's sex life wasn't getting soldiers killed in a needless war in Iraq. No wars budget surplus. Obama's second term will resemble Bill Clintons and that is good for America.

Clinton's repeated tepid responses to attacks on us and our interests directly emboldened the 9/11 masterminds. Bush made them pay.
Bush made them pay alright, over 4000 Americans & God know's how many 100,000's Iraqi's dead. All this for a new democratic government that gets a car bomb every week as a present along with waring factional religious interests. This is what Bush delivered to Iraq, I bet they are sooo happy about that. Along with Iran when US & English treated them like a colony of the US to over throw a democratic elected government to install a puppet Shah who looked after US interests and starved his own people. Was this another gift from the Republicans as well ? Then Reagan arming Saddam to fight the Iranians because of an Islamic government. Drugs for Arms the list goes on and on. I'm sure the American public were happy about that, inciting hatred for the US which was not looking after the American public but US comercial interests. In other words an overthrown government for profit. Look back in History and see how many times that has happened in the middle east and you wonder why you get the likes of Bin Laden. I'm sure you would love for them to do the same to you. This is the party of God, or so they say. Republicans for the people, or should i say Corporations no matter what the cost. Obama wants to correct this wrong and would restore American reputation as doing good things in the world not creating new enemies.
Americans remember Republicans in power, so will vote Obama 2012

Ordinary income is usually guaranteed. If you work a certain amount of time, you are legally entitled to the pay that you were offered when you took the job. Capital gains involve risk. They are not guaranteed. You can invest your money and lose it all. Moreover, the year when you receive capital gains may not be the same as the years when they were earned.
It would appear that you are the idiot, or at the very least deliberately dishonest in your assertion.
First of all, by truncating my original post you're showing yourself to be intellectually dishonest and sidestepping the question of who the 47% are that pay no federal income taxes.
But to respond to your narrow interpretation my response is so what? Sure there's risk involved but there's also risk in a trip to the blackjack table. Why not give a special rate for gambling winnings?
Most of those who get their income from investments don't keep all their eggs in one basket and can leverage their losses against their gains at tax time. If you put all of your cash into a single investment and you lose then those are the breaks.

<your post that I replied to in its entirety>
You're either a liar or abysmally ignorant. When Obama took office GDP was at -5.6% we moved out of the negative area by the third quarter of 2009 and since then growth in GDP have averaged 2.16% per quarter.
Corporations don't want government to stop spending dimwit, they just want a larger share to be shoveled their way.
The people who don't pay federal income taxes are retirees on Social Security, veterans on pensions or living on disability checks and those who even though working don't make enough to pay income taxes.
Another group that doesn't pay income taxes are millionaires and billionaires whose income is derived from investment income. They pay a capital gains tax which is half of what people who actually work for a living pay.
You're an idiot!
<end your post>

You accuse me of being intellectually dishonest and then make a comparison of investing in the economy to gambling at a blackjack table, like they should be treated similar in regards to taxation. You never posed a question as to who the 47% are to answer, so this would be just another demonstration of “your” intellectual dishonesty.

Your lack of understanding of how the taxation system works and the general principles of success in this county appear to be your biggest problem though, as your reply did nothing to address what you state as my narrow interpretation of your response. This is most likely why your hand is out like many of the 47% in this country.

Get a clue.

2010 Census data on Mass's economy--Another factor has been the transformation from a manufacturing economy into one based on high technology, leaving limited employment options for lower-skilled workers, particularly males.

As in UNDER-educated, UNevolved enough...with tobacco pickers yewneeyun level unskilled in abunDUNCE.

WHY?

As of the 2006 election, the Republican party holds less than 13% of the seats in both legislative houses of the General Court: in the House, the balance is 141 Democratic to 19 Republican, and in the Senate, 35–5.

As in, too many DUHHHHHHHMMMMMMMMMMMMMBO Duhmocrats.

But still, in the TOP FIVE states for doing business.
For those who can handle REALITY, TAXES and PRIORITIES of PAYING BILLS and realizing there's NO SUCH THING as a "FWEEDUHMship lollypop".
