Barack Obama, our next President

One Million Strong Against Mitt Romney in 2012 via PoliticusUSA:
‎"Hostess’s failure was compounded by having six CEO’s in 8 years who had no experience in the bread or cake baking industry. Despite their financial woes, the company’s CEO got a 300% salary increase from $750,000 to $2,250,000, and other top executives received raises worth hundreds-of-thousands of dollars; all while the company was struggling. Instead of acknowledging the lack of competent leadership and exorbitant executive salaries as contributing to the company’s decision to close its doors, CEO Gregory Rayburn issued a statement saying,“We deeply regret the necessity of today’s decision, but we do not have the financial resources to weather an extended nationwide strike.” However, Rayburn and Hostess management claimed the strike would be responsible for closing plants even before there was a strike, and they had made plans to close plants whether or not workers accepted the Draconian wage and benefit cuts the company offered, or if they went on strike."

I have overcome the technical bottleneck, straight shooting of the traditional Assault Rifle, this is an ideal gun for urban combat for looking around the corners of buildings too. You have not heard in your dreams, but this is real and trusting. The CSAR is a "revolutionary weapon system that enables military and law enforcement to effectively observe/engage targets from around the corner/behind cover without exposing any part of the operator's body ".
I have found a method to resolve the problem on straight shooting of the traditional Assault Rifle, Many people have expressed surprise or disbelief that a firearm can be made to shoot around cover; yet this is precisely what the unique and intricate manufacturing technology enables this weapon to do. The unique concealment—shot technology was the fruit of experiments.

The company was struggling primarily because of a decrease in sales.

When you work for a company whose products aren't as popular or profitable anymore, you have to take what they can offer.

The Bakers' Union thought they could squeeze blood out of a turnip.

Union wages and pension costs also led to Hostess' unprofitable cost structure.

Employees who made the dough were earning $17 an hour. That's a lot of dough for making dough.

The Palestinians supported by Hamas cause trouble wherever they go.

It was Hamas who started firing rockets into Tel Aviv. Why didn't you tell THEM to stop?

Palestinians went to Lebanon in the 1970s to launch attacks on northern Israel and airplane hijacking campaigns worldwide. Palestinians were fighting the Lebanonese at the same time they were launching attacks against Israel. Following the Lebanonese War, Palestinians in Lebanon lost their fight there too.

Even after the Israeli-Palestinian peace process led to the Oslo Accords in 1993 allowing the PLO to relocate to the West Bank and Gaza Strip, it had significant opposition among radical Islamic elements such as Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad who immediately initiated a campaign of attacks targeting Israelis.

In 1969 alone, the PLO was responsible for hijacking 82 planes.

They murdered 11 Israeli athletes during the 1972 Olympic Games.

Nobody wants this rag tag group of violent people. Not even their own. Jordon didn't want them either. Look up Black September.

They won't be happy until they kill every Jew in Israel.

They kill innocents in the name of hating Israel.

And you're blaming Israel??

A Few Forgotten Facts

1. Israel became a nation in 1312 BCE, 2000 years before the rise of Islam.

2. Arab refugees in Israel began identifying themselves as part of a Palestinian people in 1967 two decades after the establishment of the modern State of Israel.

(Very important: The term "Palestine" only materialized after the Russians coined the term in the 1960s.)

3. Since the Jewish conquest in 1272 BCE, the Jews have had dominion over the land for 1000 years with a continuous presence in the land for the past 3,300 years.

4. The only Arab dominion since the conquest in 635 CE lasted no more than 22 years.

5. For over 3,300 years, Jerusalem has been the Jewish capital Jerusalem has never been the capital of any Arab or Muslim entity. Even when the Jordanians occupied Jerusalem, they never sought to make it their capital.

6. Jerusalem is mentioned over 700 times in Tanach, the Jewish Holy Scriptures. Jerusalem is not mentioned once in the Koran.

7. King David founded the city of Jerusalem. Mohammed never came to Jerusalem.

8. Arab refugees were intentionally not absorbed or integrated into the Arab lands to which they fled despite the vast Arab territory. Out of the 100,000,000 refugees since World War II, theirs is the only refugee group in the world that has never been absorbed or integrated into their own people's lands.

9. The PLO's Charter still calls for the destruction of the State of Israel. Israel has given the Palestinians most of the West Bank land, autonomy under the Palestinian Authority.

10. Of the 175 UN Security Council resolutions passed before 1990, 97 were directed against Israel.

11. The UN was silent while 58 Jerusalem Synagogues were destroyed by the Jordanians.

Almost everyone asked about the Republicans' election drubbing this year seems to agree that an update is necessary for a party that appears to be running years behind Democrats in adapting to rapidly changing campaigns and an evolving electorate.

Interpretation: Almost everyone asked about the Republicans' election drubbing this year seems to agree that an update is necessary for a party that appears to be running years behind Democrats in smear tactics, spreading outright falsehoods and intentionally dividing the electorate.

People tend to forget that if the election had been held before Hurricane Sandy, the outcome might have been a lot different. Romney lost his momentum while Obama could look presidential in the spotlight.

Obama was losing in the polls and his approval rating didn't improve until after the Hurricane.

Pretty much.

Obviously you tell that teen the consequences. Who the heck doesn't know that? Even telling a teen the consequences, doesn't always work. For some it will, for others it won't. My niece was told the same thing, but, she was head over heals for this guy and went all the way. So...the option should have been there. I'll bet now, she wishes she HAD used protection, and it's just possible that she knew about condoms, but didn't care. Anyway, if a teen really wants condoms, they can get them. I also think that some don't like using them because it just isn't as pleasurable. This is why I believe in planned parenthood. This isn't 40 or 50 years ago. Teens today also seem to physically develop at a younger age than when I was a teen. Probably due to all of the hormones pumped into cattle, chickens, etc. We're all sexual beings and teens are no exception. They'll do it no matter how much you may discuss it with them. They may understand the circumstances and consequences involved, but a teen's brain isn't fully developed yet. Pleasure, emotions, peer pressure; often take precedence over common sense or discipline. That's why many teens get into "trouble" in the first place.
No, left wing brainless moron, you just teach them to be equitable and handle their crush as young as 6. Maybe they go out and have sex because their sexual feelings have been wrongly condemned and so their needs aren't met with their crush, so they have to dump their parents and actually have sex to feel satisfied because they feel guilty about their sexual feelings and have to have sex with their crush in order to feel satisfied about rejecting their guilt their parents inflicted, or at least what they get from others.

Yep, the hurricane did it.

It wasn't the trashing of blacks & Hispanics by Romney & the right. Nope.

It wasn't trying to blame Obama for the Bush recession, Nope

It wasn't running a Candidate that flipped Flopped on each & every issue.

It wasn't running a Candidate the flubbed his first overseas trip.

It wasn't the constant flow of lies from Romney.

It wasn't his picking a really poor choice for VP.

Nope. it was the hurricane that demonstrated how good Obama dealt with it & an honest Republican Governor that acknowledged this.

Republicans - keep thinking it was just the hurricane & remain the out of touch party that would rather look toward winning the next election rather than help this country.

The problem with the Republican Party was not the hurricane. there weren't enough dumbasses like you who fell for there crap.

The really pathetic part ids that the Republicans called Obama a marxist, socialist, unAmerican while claiming it was his fault for the poor economy & how he dd a terrible job with foreign policy & hell, you even called him a murdered for Benghazi.....And you still couldn't bet him. It says either you people lied or you are evidently at lot worse than the things you said about Obama because he kicked your candidate's ass.

You first have to educate yourself as to the context of that phrase and where it was first said.

You won't find it in the Constitution.

It's intent was to merely prevent another Church of England which dictated one size fits all in the new country.

You all keep getting it backwards. It was to keep government from enforcing one religion for all, not to prevent people from their right to exercise and express their own freedom of religion. Which IS in the Constitution.

O'Reilly Blames Potential Romney Loss on Hurricane Sandy


In the aftermath of last week’s presidential election, one narrative that has emerged in an attempt to explain Mitt Romney’s loss is that Hurricane Sandy halted the Republican candidate’s momentum in the final week before the election.

It’s an interesting theory. The problem is that it isn’t really supported by the facts.

A look back at the data of battleground states that decided the election indicates that Mr. Romney’s rise in the polls there—which was quite real through October—had stalled out the weekend before the hurricane hit.

http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2012/11/13/hurr...

Romney's polling "surge" ended Oct. 12
