<quoted text>It's MUCH MUCH worse. However, the dumb liberal haters still think it is the people that happen to read a bible that is the big problem.

How many wars will Obama be involved in during his second term? How many more "green revolutions" will he sponsor? Finally, how many other diplomats and seals will be left hanging dry? Well, as long as the media keeps giving him cover, quite a few is likely.
Until the money runs out and then he will blame Bush and liberals will believe him and he will make a speech and will say "it could be worst" and they will applaud the dictator, facing their rises right hands toward him and chanting "Hail Berry"!

But soon China will realize that Obama can not afford the interest on the debt and Americas downgrade and will stop lending money cause India, Russia and Saudi Arabia have actual cash at hand instead.

So what will little berry dictator to do to please his unions after taxing the rich again and again until they pay their fare share of 100% tax?

He will raid our 401k but that is just the beginning!

With no money to control Americans he will let states fire police, teachers and firemen and will successfully blame it on Bush and the Republicans for no taxing more the rich who makes $100,000 or more! No typo I wrote one hundred thousand only!

So if you make less than 100k you will be unemployed in welfare and food stamps. If you make more than a mere 100k you will not be paying your fare share, even if taxed at 100%.

That is liberalism in action!

Alot more than one to check out.
You spread your BS on every thread you post on.
Like a disease.

You have 2 and 1/2 "fans" and a possible.
Who is being cautious after reading your inane babble. Wise.
The other ONE of the two needs you for back up.
And the 1 and 1/2 ...
Well their judgement has somewhat lessened of late.

While you think you're going to The Hospital, I'll take you to The Morgue. That's how we "Guineas" work.

You are wrong, Dude! Very wrong!


Conservative give more in charity than liberals!

Mitt Romney gave more in charity by percentage than Obama and Biden combined!

In his book, Who Really Cares: The Surprising Truth About Compassionate Conservativism (Basic Books, 2006), Brooks discovered that approximately equal percentages of liberals and conservatives give to private charitable causes. However, conservatives gave about 30 percent more money per year to private charitable causes, even though his study found liberal families earned an average of 6 percent more per year in income than did conservative families. This greater generosity among conservative families proved to be true in Brooks’ research for every income group,“from poor to middle class to rich.”
This “giving gap” also extended beyond money to time donated to charitable causes, as well. Brooks also discovered that in 2002, conservative Americans were much more likely to donate blood each year than liberals and to do so more often within a year. Brooks found “if liberals and moderates gave blood at the same rate as conservatives, the blood supply in the United States would jump by about 45 percent.”

and it had become a household custom, for the mother was a born singer.
The first sound in the morning was her voice as she went about the
house singing like a lark, and the last sound at night was the same
cheery sound, for the girls never grew too old for that familiar
Jo was the first to wake in the gray dawn of Christmas morning. No
stockings hung at the fireplace, and for a moment she felt as much
disappointed as she did long ago, when her little sock fell down
because it was crammed so full of goodies. Then she remembered her
mother's promise and, slipping her hand under her pillow, drew out a
little crimson-covered book. She knew it very well, for it was that
beautiful old story of the best life ever lived, and Jo felt that it
was a true guidebook for any pilgrim going on a long journey. She woke
Meg with a "Merry Christmas," and bade her see what was under her
pillow. A green-covered book appeared, with the same picture inside,
and a few words written by their mother, which made their one present
very precious in their eyes. Presently Beth and Amy woke to rummage
and find their little books also, one dove-colored, the other blue, and
all sat looking at and talking about them, while the east grew rosy
with the coming day.
In spite of her small vanities, Margaret had a sweet and pious nature,
which unconsciously influenced her sisters, especially Jo, who loved
her very tenderly, and obeyed her because her advice was so gently
"Girls," said Meg seriously, looking from the tumbled head beside her
to the two little night-capped ones in the room beyond, "Mother wants
us to read and love and mind these books, and we must begin at once.
We used to be faithful about it, but since Father went away and all
this war trouble unsettled us, we have neglected many things. You can
do as you please, but I shall keep my book on the table here and read a
little every morning as soon as I wake, for I know it will do me good
and help me through the day."
Then she opened her new book and began to read. Jo put her arm round
her and, leaning cheek to cheek, read also, with the quiet expression
so seldom seen on her restless face.
"How good Meg is! Come, Amy, let's do as they do. I'll help you with
the hard words, and they'll explain things if we don't understand,"
whispered Beth, very much impressed by the pretty books and her
sisters' example.
"I'm glad mine is blue," said Amy. and then the rooms were very still
while the pages were softly turned, and the winter sunshine crept in to
touch the bright heads and serious faces with a Christmas greeting.
"Where is Mother?" asked Meg, as she and Jo ran down to thank her for
their gifts, half an hour later.
"Goodness only knows. Some poor creeter came a-beggin', and your ma
went straight off to see what was needed. There never was such a woman
for givin' away vittles and drink, clothes and firin'," replied Hannah,
who had lived with the family since Meg was born, and was considered by
them all more as a friend than a servant.
"She will be back soon, I think, so fry your cakes, and have everything
ready," said Meg, looking over the presents which were collected in a
basket and kept under the sofa, ready to be produced at the proper
time. "Why, where is Amy's bottle of cologne?" she added, as the
little flask did not appear.

If you think unemployment is bad now, wait until obamacare kicks in. You are going to see unemployment at up to around 15 to 20% because it will be cheaper in costs to do so. In a strange way, I am starting to think that maybe it is better this way, in order to let liberals see what a disaster this obama law is. I mean common, unlike seatbelts or the requirement of having to purchase vehicle insurance, when you are forced as a business owner who is trying to get by in this obama economy, to purchase health insurance for your employess or else, what is the best option? Down sizing is optimal, pay a few employees a little more to do the job that it would normally take a regular crew to do. It's coming folks, if you think it is bad now, just wait. I wish obamacare was available for all, dont get me wrong, in an thriving economy in a country like ours, in another time, yes maybe. But to throw this at an already suffering economy that is barely getting by?? What the hell was obama thinking?, my God, this is economics 101. May God help our country.

Oh, by the way, there was a poster HERE a few times who doesn't like you at ALL on that OTHER thread.

I've held back his full on assault on your character. Helped you save face.
He has the ability to destroy THAT persona.
Out of respect for me, he hasn't.

Things can be undone. So Quickly.

Sleep tight ... so to speak.
