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 ...

Of the 33 nations that the US has invaded since 1945 none have ever had nuclear weapons. Iran needs a nuke to protect itself from the US.

Will Vote for Tax Cut wrote:
<quoted text>
Since WHEN do House Reps consider actual issues such as this? You know full well exactly what they will do on 1/2/2013 - vote for a fake tax cut thereby approving a tax hike. Do you think there is any other ending to this game?
Who knows what they will do. Boehner is a Democrat. So, he will do whatever he can to prevent any cuts to government spending.
There is no reason to hurry this. This can be addressed at any time and any agreement can be made retroactive to the first of the year.
There is some hidden reason why everyone is being led to believe this is an emergency. This is just like when ObamaKare was rushed through without anyone even reading it. Even today nobody knows what's in that law.
The government doesn't have a revenue problem. It has a spending problem. Cut govenment spending first. After government spending is cut, then let's talk about revenue issues... like increasing the number of people paying income taxes.
Any country that lets half the population mooch off the other half won't last long.
The only way to fix the insanity in our government is to have everyone dependent on their decisions. EVERYONE should have to pay income taxes. If everyone paid income taxes, the wouldn't be voting for a bunch of criminal frauds flying a Marxist flag, that's for sure.

When you take into account the extra energy needed to extract and refines the heavy carbon laden tar sands oil it would actually cause fuel prices to rise.
The rest of your post is just too ignorant, delusional and racist to even bother with.

Wrong again moron. Maybe some day we won't but as of today, we still do.

For the umpteenth time, Bush was promoting home ownership.
When will you quit lying about this?
The only thing Bush did was try a power grab to put Fannie & Freddie under White House control to satisfy his banking buddies.
Clinton + Congress = balanced budget
Bush + same Congress = deficit & debt
You can keep saying "for the umpteenth time" until the cows come home. It's not going to change the facts reported in the liberal talking points newspaper, the New York Times, in 1999:

Home ownership has, in fact, exploded among minorities during the economic boom of the 1990's. The number of mortgages extended to Hispanic applicants jumped by 87.2 per cent from 1993 to 1998, according to Harvard University's Joint Center for Housing Studies. During that same period the number of African Americans who got mortgages to buy a home increased by 71.9 per cent and the number of Asian Americans by 46.3 per cent.

In contrast, the number of non-Hispanic whites who received loans for homes increased by 31.2 per cent.

Sorry for my ignorance topix fam. I was partying lastnight & didn't hear the good news. Republicans came to their senses huh! Finally! Holding america hostage is only a bargaining chip for terrorist. The question remains, how now can republicans expect thee president to trust them when they admittedly tried to sabotage his entire 1st term & went against the will of the people & almost pushed the country into another recession? How can they expect him to extend the proverbial olive branch when every time he's tried they tried to takes the whole damn thing? How can republican constituents be mad when it wasn't just democrats held hostage & used for bargaining chips, they used them to. After long negotiations if the republicans aren't exposed to the representatives selfish ways, then I'm forced to believe they're just slaves to the rhythm & are really republicans because the word has more letters than the democrats.lol!

No spending cuts... no deal.
And, no more debt. Not for any reason.
The fiscal cliff was the only sane thing the government did in the past 4 years. Let it come.
Take the cuts and the taxes, and live within the means the economy can realistically be expected to afford.
There is no reason to hurry this. Any agreement can be reached at any time during the Congressional Session and made retroactive to the first of the year.
People should be asking themselves why they are being told this is an emergency.

So.

Iran has always had the capabilities to ply havoc with the world oil markets.

Unfortunately for them, they depend on these oil markets.

It would take little effort to use military fore to destroy their oil industry & cripple their economics even further than the sanctions.

I hear the pundits and politicians talk about how the middle class is being protected.
bullshit.
No spending cuts means inevitable collapse of the government. Thus, the middle class gets anihilated.

Dufus, what do you do when the Chinese Navy begins to escort Iranian tankers? Start a war?
Democrats are too ignorant to avoid this.

The deal....

Increased spending.
600 billion dollars additional revenue over 10 years.
Reality:
We have a deficit of 1.3+ trillion with no plan to reduce it.
Without the economic burden of ObamaKare, the already obscene debt doubles in 10 years. When ObamaKare starts sucking every dollar out of the economy, that 16 trillion dollar debt will probably double in half that time.

The only problem we have is government spending. The only thing that cuts government spending is the fiscal cliff. Let it come.

That was her specific job, dufus. And, you're right. She didn't verify anything. If she did, then Clinton wouldn't have bombed Iraq every other goddam day.
Valerie Plame was the managing director for the CIA's intelligence operation on Saddam Hussein's WMD programs.
Vallerie Plame reported to Bill Clinton that Saddam Hussein had viable WMD programs. Valerie Plame reported to Bush43 that Saddam Hussein had viable WMD programs.
Valerie Plame was responsible for the WMD part of the 18 UN resolutions being ignored justification to remove Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq.
That was her assigned job. She headed the operation. She generated all analysis given to Clinton, who used it to bomb Iraq every other day, and to Bush 43, who used it to remove Saddam Hussein from power.
If she never verified the intel Bush used to go to war, how was it her fault??? Bush should have not used the intel until it was verified.

But hey, that would take common sense. Something a dumbass like you knows nothing about.

Semantics.
The Constitution doesn't say anywhere that the government society has a different set of rights than the non-government society.
It is unarguable that every private citizen has every right to possess every weapon any agency in government can possess.
You have to get rid of the Constitution and the concept of civillian government to change that.

That's ok with me. If the police think the only thing they need to protect me is a .22 single-shot crack-barrel rifle, then let that be the case.

Boehner walks a very thin line between hard-right conservatives and hard-left liberals and the demands of both with the country's best interests hanging in the balance. You should cut him a little slack.

He risks republicans being labeled obstructionists and democrats ending up smelling like a rose.

Which is exactly what the democrats are counting on. He has no choice right now but to compromise.

We have a good chance to come out on top in 2014 and 2016 by playing the democrats' game for a while.

The repubicans succeeded in upping the tax increases. It ain't over til it's over.

I'm hoping it doesn't come to that. Everyone on our side works for a living and don't have the time.
We definitely need a new Speaker of the House. Boehner is unquestionably a Democrat. We have no chance of reducing spending with him as Speaker.

Because it was her job to verify that intel. She took money from you with the understanding that she would verify intel about Saddam Hussein's WMD program.
What she did was, she falsified the analysis. Valerie Plame was a critical piece in the ploy to keep the UN's oil-for-food scam going. She falsified intel so the 18 UN sanctions being ignored would remain in place, and the oil-for-food scam would continue.

As long as you keep repeating that...
We never had a surplus under Clinton. Clinton got lucky with the dot.com bubble. It then burst. The Republican Congress led the way to a more balanced budget. The unraveling of the housing mortgage loan crisis began under Clinton. We were hit by 9/11 under Bush disrupting the economy. Democrats also supported the war effort. Democrats ignored the warnings by Bush and Bernacke of an impending housing market crisis as much, if not more, than Republicans.
...I'm going to keep repeating this.
Your oversimplified version is much too understated and consistently inaccurate.
You keep flogging that lie no matter how many times its disproven. You and the idiot DBWronger, two pieces of sht in a pod.
