Funny you should bring this up. Reminded me of something I saw the other night.
That Annual Kennedy Center Honors event was on the other night and presidents always attend sitting next to the honorees.
One of the honorees was a ballerina formerly from Russia. In the telling of her story, it was said she ended up leaving Russia to come to the United States because the Russian government wouldn't allow her to have artistic creativity and dictated what kind of music and dance she had to do.
She said it took away her incentive to dance. She came to America and ended up started the American Ballet Company.
I couldn't help but immediately think of Obama who was sitting just two people away from her.
Taking away incentives is right up his alley.
Would you happen to have a small, bit-sized piece of left over chalk, and a slab of black slate to write upon?
There appears to be some posting from hamlets, that seem in need of good reprimand for being disrespectful of others nobility.

" I shalt not be disrespectful of others nobility " five hundred and ninety nine times, in Latin, should be sufficient for starters....

I simply stay up-to-date on current events and the news. You should try it yourself sometime.
his isn't the first time I've had to get you up to snuff on what the main stream even reported after hearing it first on Fox News.
http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-18563_162-5756089...
"Last week's retail analyst "Shopper Trak" projected a 2.5 increase in sales for November and December. But Wednesday, "Spending Pulse" said holiday sales went up only 0.7 percent.
"That would make this season the worst since 2008."
You're welcome.
ummm Carol, if sales were up over last year, wouldn't that make them better than last year & if so, how could it be the worst since 2008?

1) Evidently, there were no wealthy people prior to the Bush tax cuts.
2) You right whiners keep insisting that someone is demanding equal outcomes. Who? Other than you liars is saying this?
3) The idea that what you get on welfare & other such programs is equal to what you can have by working proves once again just how f*cking stupid you people are.
... idiots.

Regardless of when wealthy people began to inhabit the Earth, those the Democrats call "rich" don't even have that much money if you taxed them at 100 percent and made them destitute. There just isn't enough money available to be taxed to pay for the Obama government. So...
Where do you plan to get the money from to pay for the Obama government?

Equal outcome... do you mean like ObamaKare? It seems everyone is equal there without exception of who pays for all of it. The crackhead is equal to the engineer in every way except who pays for the whole goddam thing. This is unquestionably Marxist.

A person works to have a mobile phone. Ever hear of the ObamaPhone? A person works to eat. Ever hear of foodstamps? A person works to buy a house. It was the Democrats' Marxist subprime housing mortgage underwriting program that collapsed our economy in an attempt to create equal outcome.

Again, we are back to the question. Where are you going to get the money from to pay for the Obama government?

The only sane thing the government did in the past 4 years was to create this fiscal cliff if the insanity of our government didn't cure itself.
We need cuts to the government. The fiscal cliff makes those cuts. We need increased taxes. The fiscal cliff increases taxes.
Problem (sort of) solved. That's better than the headlong sprint to a collapsed government we've seen for the past 4 years.

One more thing for the American Public to blame on the Republiclowns for refusing to go along with Obama's plans, which were approved by the voters on Nov. 6th.
You know they're gonna cave on taxes, but they had to put all of America through pain before they do so.
That's why they're on the verge of extinction.
Do you always dream so delusionaly during the daylight hours? Is it the light that sets it off?

Still think a Fed SALES tax ALL across the boards is "FAIR and EQUAL"..NO exceptions.

I'm not a Democrat and I told you no amount of twist and spin can negate the facts these numbers reflect. Don't like the period, use the data and see if you can't make it work better for your argument but I'm tellin' ya, I've looked at every permutation and the end result is that since the "Republican Revolution" the roles have completely changed with the Republicans having by far the worst spending record. So save your bombast and come back with some numbers or shut your little fat as s up!
The period isn't reflective of how the government of the United States works.
How about this permutation:
January, 2001, total public debt 5 trillion dollars.
dot-com bust
Arab jihad declares a global war against the United States
January, 2007, total public debt 8 trillion dollars.(+3 trillion dollars; 0.5 trillion per year average)
Democrats take control of all the purse strings of the government of the United States.
January, 2012, total public debt 16+ trillion dollars.(+8 trillion dollars; 1.6 trillion dollars per year average)
January, 2007, annual deficit 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollars. The average annual deficit since the Democrats took control of all the purse strings of the government is ONE THOUSAND PERCENT MORE THAN THE DEFICIT THE REPUBLICANS TURNED OVER TO THEM.

And, now, the Democrats propose a government that is impossible to pay for.

So, answer this question:

Where are you going to get the money from to pay for the Obama government?

Please tell me where Boehner's name appears in the below post:

What have the Democrats done to that deficit since?
When the Democrats took control of all the purse strings of government, the total public debt was 8 trillion dollars, only 3 trillion dollars added to the debt since January, 2001, the year of the dot-com bust and the Arab jihad declaring a global war on the United States.

Congress obviously can't solve the problem of spending more than the economy is capable of supporting.
Let the fiscal cliff come.
The government needs to cut spending. The fiscal cliff cuts spending.
The government needs to increase taxes. The fiscal cliff raises taxes.
Problem solved... well, Obama and Harry Reid are trying to continue the insane rush of our government to fiscal insolvency and collapse.
No deal. Keep the cuts. Keep the taxes.
And, no more debt. Make the government grow up and live within the means the economy provides.

I do believe he's one of the thousand or so paid trolls Obama hired to post the indoctrinated party line bull to counter the volume of stuff on the internet negative about Obama.
You'd think Obama would have a thicker skin than that.
That's not a very good sign. It seems more like Hitler and Stalin than it does a president of the United States.

If Obama read from the teleprompter more times during the Christmas season, that would have fixed our problems.
Please help us, Obama. Read from the teleprompter. Save the world and read from the teleprompter.

... it's funny how someone reading from a teleprompter creates such an impression. We used to call people like that frauds.
