Barack Obama, our next President

OK, LET'S LOOK AT THIS FROM AN OBJECTIVE POINT OF VIEW. FIRSTLY, YOU'RE NOT WHITE, ARE YOU? I MEAN UNLESS YOU'RE A POLAR BEAR OR SOMETHING? SO SHOULDN'T IT READ, "PROUD2BPINK?" OR, "PROUD2BGRAY?"

SECONDLY, LET'S FACE IT, IF YOU WERE SO PROUD OF IT YOU'D NEVER GO OUT IN THE SUN, WEAR MAKE-UP (I'VE SEEN YOU WITH THE BLUSHER...) MOW THE GRASS IN BERMUDAS WITH NO SHIRT ON (I'VE SEEN YOU DO THAT TOO AND YOU NEED TO STOP!) SO, I'M DUBIOUS ABOUT THE PROUD PART TOO.

SO IF YOU'RE NOT REALLY PROUD AND YOU'RE NOT REALLY WHITE, WHAT'S THAT LEAVE? 2B? HOW ABOUT, 2BORNOT2B?

We had a balanced Budget & on the path to paying down the debt.

Then a guy ran for President on the idea that we should not pay down the debt but rather give the money back to the taxpayers.

Dipsticks like you elected him President & the plan to pay down the debt went to Hell in a hand basket.

Did it ever occur to you that those wars cost something? That Bush didn't put them on the books? You rightwingers are so easily duped it's incredible.

What's the answer, dufus?
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
The new taxes will only generate an additional 600 billion dollars over 10 years. The government has an annual deficit of 1.3 trillion dollars, with no plan to reduce it.
So, given these irrefutable facts, where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
Nobody in the world has answered that question yet.
The same place Bush got his. Are you just dense?

Maybe you don't know where Bush got his??? Are you that stupid that you don't know???

We do know that as the economy improves, the deficit will be reduced through higher revenues & fewer dollars helping those caught up in that recession.

Which recession?? The George W Bush recession that created these deficits.

I must have missed the list of legislation the Democrats passed in the first 9 months of 2007 that created this recession. Why is that? You know, the laws & spending the Democrats created that their 49 members in the Senate could pass & Bush would sign.

Until you have a list, please STFU about a budget deficit when two wars were being run off budget. You are as dishonest as the Bush Administration.

John that's not true. Most of my friends are hunters and many of them and myself also have concealed weapons permits. Some of these gun owners believe as you do that no gun should be banned because they buy into the phony slippery-slope argument. There are also many gun owners like myself that are embarrassed that the NRA has portrayed us all as supporters of semi-automatic assault type guns. There has to be a line drawn somewhere that limits what weapons are available to ANY person that wants one.
Most of your friends are hunters? Of course, all hillbillies are hunters and eat squirrels.

So you don't approve of theose semi-automatic rifles, but a hypocrite like you carries a concealed "semi-automatic" handgun?

Baaawwwaaahhhh!!!!!

Typicical moron liberal.

A loon like you should NOT be allowed to carry a gun, period. Mental illness is a real problem, and you have a major case, hypocrite.

The Patriot Act is not part of the Constitution.
Therefore, it is subordinate to the Constitution.
Because the Patriot Act is subordinate to the Constitution, then it is impossible for the Patriot Act to supersede the Constitution.
Now, repeat after me:
"All laws are subordinate to the Constitution"
... in a Constitutional Republic like the United States, that is.
In a fascist dictatorship, this isn't true.
So, judging from what you wrote, you are under the impression that we live in a country governed by a fascist dictatorship, right?
Funny how you nitwits defended the Patriot Act when Bush passed it!! LOL

Sleazy Ed said 'if you haven't done anything wrong, you've nothing to fear from the Patriot Act'.

Looks like Ed had no problem with it. I remember many of the nitwits saying the same thing.

But now that Obama's President, you're all against Bush's signature act as a Dictator!!

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Better read up on John Yoo, Bush's legal expert, who wrote much of Bush's Constitution busting PAtriot Act.

AKA John Choon Yoo

Born: 10-Jun-1967
Birthplace: Seoul, South Korea

Gender: Male
Race or Ethnicity: Asian
Sexual orientation: Straight
Occupation: Government
Party Affiliation: Republican

Nationality: United States
Executive summary: Thinks Geneva Conventions are obsolete

Former clerk for Laurence H. Silberman at the Court of Appeals, and later for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas 1994-95. Served as Deputy Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel at the DOJ 2001-03, where he wrote substantial parts of the PATRIOT act with Viet Dinh, and co-authored a report that spat on the Geneva Conventions.

The forty-two page memo in question, which he authored in January 2002, stipulated that since Afghanistan has no formal government to speak of, neither the Geneva Convention nor any other laws of war apply. This breaks a fifty-year U.S. military tradition of upholding those rules, rules that the U.S. adopted because the same rules protect captured American soldiers. When the U.S. state department read Yoo's memo, they were "horrified"; their chief legal advisor calling it "seriously flawed." But George W. Bush approved the policies in the memo, ultimately resulting in the Abu Ghraib fiasco and similar atrocities being committed in other Iraqi prisons as well as those in Afghanistan.

According to a 2010 report from the Justice Department's Office of Professional Responsibility, investigators asked Yoo whether he maintained that the President's authority is broad enough that he could hypothetically "order a village of civilians to be exterminated", to which Yoo responded, "Sure." Among his other zingers are quotes like "There is no constitutional right to privacy of records not in your possession" (said at a University of Virginia conference) and another on the PATRIOT Act, "It seems to me a very modest bill. There is no revolutionary change."

Other related memos discuss how to avoid prosecution of War Crimes that are expected to be committed by Americans following these policies, though it is not clear whether Yoo had a hand in authoring those.

Yoo occasionally appears on news programs such as Lehrer News Hour as a talking head (at least one time with Scott Horton as foil), largely defending Bush administration policies. With all these wonderful ideas coming out of his head Yoo still feels he has enough credibility to author a book on Constitutional law. He remains a tenured law professor at the University of California at Berkeley.

----------

Fact is, nothing is unConstitutional until th eSupreme Court rules so.

Too bad you don't understand the Constitution or the Patriot Act.

But stay ignorant, that will ensure your supporting losers like Rmoney and McLame!!

We still have increased taxes from the taxation monstrosity called Obamacare to look forward to next year.

Who the heck is going to pay for that now that "the rich" - i.e. "the successful" - have been taxed up to their eyeballs?

... and that explains how the fiscal cliff was averted by eliminating all cuts to government spending and enacting a new tax policy that will generate 600 billion dollars in new taxes over a 10 year period of time... while the government will have a 1.3+ trillion dollar deficit for the foreseeable future with no plan to reduce it.
Let's see what that means....
1.3+ trillion times 10 years... naught plus naught equals naught, carry the naught, minus 600 billion....
No effect at all. The already obscene 16.5 trillion dollar debt about doubles.
An idiot knows this government will collapse.
What then?
Unfreakin' believable.

Send them ALL back to "Arithmetic 101"...for the INEPT.

HELLL OOOO...middle class UHamerikuh....figure it out yet?

----------

High-income families will feel the biggest tax increases, but many middle- and low-income families will pay higher taxes too.

Households making between $40,000 and $50,000 will face an average tax increase of $579 in 2013, according to the Tax Policy Center's analysis. Households making between $50,000 and $75,000 will face an average tax increase of $822.

"For most people, it's just the payroll tax," said Roberton Williams, a senior fellow at the Tax Policy Center.

The tax increases could be a lot higher. A huge package of tax cuts first enacted under President George W. Bush was scheduled to expire Tuesday as part of the "fiscal cliff." The Bush-era tax cuts lowered taxes for families at every income level, reduced investment taxes and the estate tax, and enhanced a number of tax credits, including a $1,000-per-child credit.

On the House floor, Rep. Peter King, a Republican from storm-ravaged Long Island, N.Y., blasted the delay as "indefensible" and said Congress had a "moral obligation" to hold the vote. On Wednesday, he urged New Yorkers to withhold all donations to congressional Republicans in an appearance on Fox News, apparently so hopping mad about the delay that he doesn't mind turning on his own party.

"I’m saying right now, anyone from New York or New Jersey who contributes one penny to congressional Republicans is out of their minds," King said. He even hinted he might jump ship from the Republican Party altogether if they didn't vote soon.

Democrats have been even harsher in their criticism. Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York said in a press conference on Wednesday that he was "infuriated" by a comment from Rep. Darrell Issa, a Republican from California, who said the bill didn't move in the House because it was filled with pork. Schumer said Issa should speak to one of the hundreds of thousands of homeowners who need help repairing their homes and will now face a delay in getting relief.

"Tell that homeowner to his face ... that it's pork," Schumer said. He added that Issa would surely not want to face such a delay if an earthquake hit his home state: "I know he wouldn't say the same thing about California." Schumer added that he now hoped a bill would pass before the end of January, after the inauguration.

Study gives rats arthritis...

"In an elaborate study of the obvious, University of New England researchers injected rats’ knees with a substance that causes arthritis and then discovered that those rats would run less on their exercise wheels due to chronic pain. As a sad side note, the arthritis seemed to have a larger debilitating effect on those rats that had run more often"
