Barack Obama, our next President

Do you listen to the nonsense that you spew out of your shyt hole? Nobody responded to your bullshit so you respond to yourself huh! Who the hell said the white man owes us anything. You so stupid you dont know the difference between progress & racism. You vote republican huh! If the democrats didnt fight for everything to help the poor & middle class, it's almost a certainty 1/3 to half would die from hunger because there just ain't enough jobs. And contrary to your belief"this ain't when slavery 1st ended. Not many people live off the land & even if they wanted to, you need money to by land & that leads us back to my 1st point", there just ain't enough jobs. You got whatever material shyt you got, cool be happy, you've been blessed, but your ignorance is disgusting. What are you doing to help the less fortunate climb from the bottom? Pointing the finger isn't a escape from reality. I don't know what planet you live on bra, but you need to come back down to earth. Your DELUSIONAL!

There is far too much at stake for political gamesmanship," he said, suggesting that Democrats were playing games. "The sticking point appears to be a willingness, an interest or frankly the courage to close the deal," McConnell said.

"I want everyone to know I'm willing to get this done, but I need a dance partner," McConnell added, saying that he had reached out to Vice President Joe Biden in hopes of breaking the logjam.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) acknowledged that the sides were stuck

LIAT
what on earth is whiteness that one should so desire it?" Then always, somehow, some way, silently but clearly, I am given to understand that whiteness is the ownership of the earth forever and ever, Amen!

Now what is the effect on a man or a nation when it comes passionately to believe such an extraordinary dictum as this? That nations are coming to believe it is manifest daily. Wave on wave, each with increasing virulence, is dashing this new religion of whiteness on the shores of our time. Its first effects are funny: the strut of the Southerner, the arrogance of the Englishman amuck, the whoop of the hoodlum who vicariously leads your mob. Next it appears dampening generous enthusiasm in what we once counted glorious; to free the slave is discovered to be tolerable only in so far as it freed his master! Do we sense somnolent writhings in black Africa or angry groans in India or triumphant banzais in Japan? "To your tents, O Israel!" These nations are not white!

After the more comic manifestations and the chilling of generous enthusiasm come subtler, darker deeds. Everything considered, the title to the universe claimed by White Folk is faulty. It ought, at least, to look plausible. How easy, then, by emphasis and omission to make children believe that every great soul the world ever saw was a white man's soul; that every great thought the world ever knew was a white man's thought; that every great deed the world ever did was a white man's deed; that every great dream the world ever sang was a white man's dream. In fine, that if from the world were dropped everything that could not fairly be attributed to White Folk, the world would, if anything, be even greater, truer, better than now. And if all this be a lie, is it not a lie in a great cause?

What's happening in Washington right now is pathetic. When you think about what the revolutionary generation did, what the civil war generation did, what the World War II generation did -- we're asking not to bankrupt our children and we've got a shambolic, dysfunctional process," Brooks said during an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press."

"Most of the blame still has to go to the Republicans," he continued. "They've had a brain freeze since the election. They have no strategy. They don't know what they want. They haven't decided what they want."

Since the Ford administration, year over year spending has gone down once and that was with D President and D's in both houses.

However, it was down over the previous year which included the "stimulus" so it wasn't any feat.

The Clinton Tax Challenge for Republicans

Republicans are adamant that taxes on the ultra-wealthy must not rise to the level they were at during the Clinton administration, as President Obama favors, lest economic devastation result. But they have a problem – the 1990s were the most prosperous era in recent history. This requires Republicans to try to rewrite the economic history of that decade.

....According to the Congressional Budget Office, the federal budget deficit fell every year of the Clinton administration, from $290 billion in 1992 to $255 billion in 1993,$203 billion in 1994,$164 billion in 1995,$107 billion in 1996, and $22 billion in 1997. In 1998, there was a budget surplus of $69 billion, which rose to $126 billion in 1999 and $236 billion in 2000 before it was dissipated by huge tax cuts during the George W. Bush administration.

.....This has created a problem for Republicans, leading to economic revisionism.

Last year, the Republican anti-tax activist Grover Norquist asserted that the boom of the 1990s resulted from the election of a Republican Congress in 1994, because business people and financial markets somehow knew this would lead to a cut in the capital gains tax. The capital gains tax was in fact cut in 1997. But the boom and the improvement in the budget deficit long predated that event.

In July, Charles Kadlec, a Forbes columnist and author of the book “Dow 100,000”(New York Institute of Finance, 1999), insisted that it is a “myth” that the economy prospered under President Clinton’s policies. He offers no actual evidence for this assertion except to say that the economy would have done even better under Reagan-type policies. Like Mr. Norquist, he attributes anything good that happened in the 1990s to the Republican Congress, which did not take office until 1995.

Last week, the investor Edward Conard, author of a recent book glorifying the ultra-wealthy, addressed the Republicans’ Clinton problem in a commentary in The Wall Street Journal. He said that the boom of the 1990s was the result of Internet-driven growth and that President Clinton was just lucky that it happened on his watch.

Maybe so, but Mr. Conard left unexplained why the budget went from a large deficit to a large surplus simply because of the Internet or why the big tax cuts on the rich he favors failed to raise growth one iota in the 2000s.

I would not argue that tax increases are per se stimulative. It all depends on circumstances. But it is clear from the experience of the 1990s that they can play a very big role in reducing the budget deficit and are not necessarily a drag on growth. And the obvious experience of the 2000s is that tax cuts increase the deficit and don’t necessarily do anything for growth. Those arguing otherwise need to make a much better case than they have so far.

Don't you think it is odd that some of the richest people on the planet are Liberals. I mean you have to go outside the top 10 richest people in the world down to the Walton family (11) before you get into the greedy republican supporters list.
So it seems to me this label of Liberals with their hand out is exactly the opposite. Of the top 10 richest ppl in the world they are known for their giving more than their taking.

So its another example of the warped universe you righties live in, which distorts reality in order to push a message which is total BS.

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Howls of protest filled the halls of the U.S. Senate today as dozens of Senators expressed their outrage at having to work through the weekend to save the United States from financial Armageddon.
“We’re hearing a lot about the country plunging back into recession and millions of people being thrown out of work,” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky).“What we’re not hearing much about is how our Sunday is being completely and irrevocably ruined.”
Senator McConnell said that when President Obama called the Senate back to work on a budget deal this weekend,“At first I thought he was kidding. Not only have I never worked on a weekend, I’ve never met anyone who’s done such a damn fool thing.”

See how foul and ignorant and inferior you really are? You poor reject of humanity, you are too blind to see even what is there. No chance of you having what the wise folk call "inner vision." For if you could glimpse that, you would surely commit suicide. Which by the way...isn't a bad idea. You will perish in the same ignorance you refuse to let go of. Thinking you by virtue of that pasty, colorless skin tone of yours, that you...YOU are better than me. What a fool you are. Does it upset you that I do not believe in your delusions? poor soul.

The only reason that sorry lot called "the house of representatives," and "that dazed looking Mofo Boehner," will not work with President Obama is because they hate the fact that the brother is in charge. Anyone deny it is a delusional, lying S.O.B.itch. We ALL know it. That old racist propaganda about whites being somehow more important (as if God had nothing better to do)need to be buried so the worlds people can advance to levels of civilizations practiced long before you space cadets fell from hell, contaminating the purity of God's "chosen" people. You are so self absorbed in your physical being that you have grown even more pathetic than you were in days of old. The "mirror" is NOT your friend! If you are hearing one tell you that "you are the fairest of them all" You are in never never land! You break faster, wrinkle faster, die faster and have more deformities and crack faster than all other races of man on the planet and yet...It is always YOU who want to judge and defame others. The time is at hand, and soon we will revise the constitution written by YOUR forefathers. We will change the words and take power away from those who fail to perform (like todays' Congress and Republicans.) We will make it a crime punishable by death to insult the "elected" commander in chief as it is in other "civilized" countries. Many of you here today would have your heads on the chopping block. You are not worthy of "freedom of speech" because you have nothing to say except for useless bytching and moaning with nary a solution. I am looking forward to the day when this happens because it is YOU bytchers and Moaners who should be filling prisons and not black men. It is YOU who are terrorist, shooting up your fellow citizens because you are a bunch of egotistical, self absorbing, delusional, crazy azzes that need to be in solitary confinement or in straight jackets. I can see from your posts that you too are a threat to society. No wonder your people commit so many senseless mass murders. 90% of you are damn NUT CASES!
