Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

Just to be fair to other past presidents we will wait till he dies first .

<quoted text>Your ADHD is really starting to show. Who said anything about food stamps? We were talking about EBT cards. Retailers may not enforce it but the law states that you do have to show photo I.D. And you cannot withdraw cash from any ATM machine using one. The only way somebody could use an EBT card to buy drugs would be to buy some food and sell it or trade it. I doubt if you could get very much crack for a loaf of bread.
There is a such thing as EBT cash & EBT food stamps so I don't believe there's a law that states that. They both come on the same card.

Hannity Guest Confronts Steven Crowder:‘You Deserve What You Got’

Crowder described the scene yesterday as a “melee” and said even if he had lacked restraint, it would not have justified his getting assaulted.

'he lacked restraint'

that should settle the issue. if not, let's talk about edited video.

Steven, stop whining, take your licks, and accept that getting hit in the face is a hazard of inserting yourself in the middle of an argument between billionaire-funded know-nothing ideologues and people whose livelihoods and stability are being threatened by the insatiable greed of the super-rich and the blind extremism of their wooden-headed political allies. In exchange, liberals will buy you a band-aid for the cut on your forehead and re-iterate that Punching Is Bad. Sound good?

<quoted text>In response to your first point, republicans should get over Benghazi too. It's old news. Get over that already.
On your second point, I agree. Native Americans were slaughtered by white people by the millions. Now they're enslaved in remote concentration camps white people like to call "reservations". White people sure do like to slaughter and enslave people don't they. It's in their nature.
No , no one should get over what happened in Benghazi, it was and still is a SAD sitution, especially for the LOVED ones of those whose lives were taken out of NOTHING but barbaric, stone age brutality. And you're a LOSER for even making such in INHUMANE comment.

Secondly, many of us ALREADY KNOW the historical plight of the Native Americans, we do NOT need any "skewling from that of the twisted and distorted"...and your posts ARE rather TWISTED and Distorted, because there are PLENTY of the same, that refused to use the lame whine crutch of "we duh victims" and CHOSE instead to make something of their lives-THEMSELVES, by WORKING and EARNING their places thourhg out their lives THEMSELVES, rather than being dependently stunted relying on duh givverment, snatching from the pockets of OTHER peoples HARD EARNED doings.

Your posts come across as nothing but a whine and blame idiot.
I will have to basically ignore responding directly to them after this one, because I have a low tolerance for willfull, abject ignorance--and find such diseasedly, plague like , SICKening.

But in prelude to such-Merry CHRISTmas, since it IS the season that expects MORE from those with a little MORE sense, decency and actual humaness in humanity, than the "whine and blame crutch gimme gimme" lesser evolved lemming type herd pack mobs.

have you ever heard of self responsibility you only produce what you can afford and can take care of. Can you imagine if everyone in US Society did that US Society would be done for because there would be no one that could take care of themselves.

Among the laws set to change at midnight on December 31, 2012, are the end of last year’s temporary payroll tax cuts (resulting in a 2% tax increase for workers), the end of certain tax breaks for businesses, shifts in the alternative minimum tax that would take a larger bite, the end of the tax cuts from 2001-2003, and the beginning of taxes related to President Obama’s health care law. At the same time, the spending cuts agreed upon as part of the debt ceiling deal of 2011 will begin to go into effect. According to Barron's, over 1,000 government programs - including the defense budget and Medicare are in line for "deep, automatic cuts."
http://bonds.about.com/od/Issues-in-the-News/...
Let it happen, cut spending and let the temporary tax cuts expire, do it now!
We're broke.
Homer would be willing to compromise on this -
'temporary payroll tax cuts'
Finally - we hear from another true conservative.

Brava Bravura Brava, Homer!!

Safe to say Homer is a deficit hawk/fiscal conservative, the rest of you 'conservatives' are fakes/social conservatives.

WRONG.

Reason number umpteenth-

MANY people celebrate the CHRIST part in CHRISTmas.

Dayum, did your parents dip you in ignorant for life water when you were born or something?

Outgoing Sen. Jim DeMint said Thursday President Obama will "get his wish" to raise taxes as part of a deal to avert the fiscal cliff.

"We're going to be raising taxes," DeMint told "CBS This Morning."

These facts explain why the tax pledge that virtually all Republicans blindly support is ultimately self-defeating. Refusing to raise revenue automatically leads to higher spending for interest on the debt. However, Republicans routinely deny this, asserting that capping revenue at some arbitrary percentage of G.D.P. will somehow or other force huge cuts in spending that will prevent deficits from rising to inconceivable levels. Implicitly, they believe in a nonsensical theory called starve-the-beast that is totally refuted by the budgetary experience of the last 20 years.
The frightening thing is that the projections for interest on the debt assume that interest rates don’t rise in the near term and don’t rise at all even as the federal debt rises to 200 percent of G.D.P. in 2037 and to 885 percent of G.D.P. in 2082. The G.A.O. assumes that short-term rates on Treasury securities average 1.3 percent through 2017 and 3.7 percent in the long run, and rates on 10-year Treasuries will average 3.4 percent in the short-run and 5 percent in the long run.
These assumptions cannot be taken at face value. Federal borrowing of the magnitude projected would undoubtedly raise inflation and real interest rates, both of which would raise market interest rates far above those projected, sharply raising federal spending for interest. Rising inflation would also force the Federal Reserve to tighten monetary policy, which would also raise real rates.
In short, the G.A.O. projections are a best-case situation insofar as interest on the debt is concerned. It could get a lot worse very quickly, and at that point it is almost a certainty that taxes will rise far more than would be necessary to stabilize the debt-to-G.D.P. ratio and hence interest on the debt. Therefore, the absolutist position against raising revenue is essentially penny-wise and pound-foolish.
It’s too bad that misplaced fears about the fiscal cliff have taken off the table the option of simply letting all the automatic tax increases and spending cuts go into effect. While this would indeed reduce short-run growth, the Congressional Budget Office says the reduction in projected deficits would actually raise growth in the medium- and long-term (see pages 24-25 of the report).

It's that whole 'big picture' thing....Thanks for posting this, as it's what I've been prone to advocate for the last 6 years.

<quoted text>Even Crowder himself said there were no police because they weren't necessary at first. It was an extremely peaceful demonstration until he started running his big mouth and insulting the union members. Even his cameraman was telling him to shut up. He was just trying to stir the demonstrators up so Fox would let him appear on TV. If he hadn't stirred things up the whole event would have been a non-story.
It was historical day-progress in the making--FOR the Working People, By the Working PEOPLE of the Working PEOPLE. Too bad the apeman missed his chance to speak intelligently and CHOSE rather instead to act like an ignorant animal.

GOOD for the (intelligent type) PRO-DEMOCARCY, ANTI-CommieTIC Working people--MORE in THEIR pockets-NOT in some neaderthal fist slinging, UNaccountable THUG's pockets!

GOOOOOO NON-THUG, more intelligent type working class People!!!!!!!

What hype don't you believe?

The Feds stepping in to help the economy because of a "grave concern" over the high unemployment rate, warning Congress to avoid going over the cliff to prevent another recession in 2013?

Or Geithner telling ABC that Obama is absolutely willing to go over the fiscal cliff?
