So, I'm guession you're in favor of minting coins with Obama's image on it to pay the public debt....
And, give me one example of Mohammed Ali defeating any contender when he was prevented from cupping. You can't. Every time Mohammed Ali was prevented from cupping his opponent, he lost. Every fight he won, he cupped the entire fight.(I'm thinking you don't even know what cupping is.) However, every opponent who beat Ali was black, too.
So, you mention athletics, and we're talking about world economics, I'm guessing you think we should assept Marxist communism because Obama is a Marxist communist and he's black, right?
I've got some news for you. Obama isn't black. He's a mulatto.
Since it's obvious Obama isn't black, I'm wondering why you call him black and not white.
My fault for making you wonder so long. Just guessing you know this already, but 1st of all the black gene is dominate & 2ndly, when mixing genetics to make a child(mother & father Y/X chromazone) the child racially is what the father is. Giving the fact that he had a white mother & a black father (black father, 2 dominating factors) one can only come to the conclusion that he is indeed black. Not only that, but he himself says he's black. What more proof do you need. Don't give me that cupping Muhammad Ali story. He did what he was allowed to do in those times, & yes I do know what cupping is. It's a part of boxing. Guys cup the back of the head & throw punches all the time. It's opponents job to not let it happen. I named alot of successful black persons. Your response was to comeback with that Muhammad Ali b/s. It's been proven throughout history all the way up until today. We dominate!

<quoted text>You dumb POS. The 2% reduction was part of the Obama stimulus package of 2011 that all you Repubs bitched about going into effect. On Jan.1, 2011 it was KNOWN then it was a plan that reduced the Social Security payroll tax by 2% but would expire on Dec.2012. You hypocritical bastards bitched about the stimulus when it was put in place and NOW you bitch about it when it expires.
One step forward-one step back....

In THIS economy, that little INcrease, makes it TWO steps back now though.

Idiots. Worst economy many of us have seen in 30 years.

And given your posting location-it almost makes you TREASONOUS...but then again-that fits right in with the lock step and jackboot velveteenage pharoah-type igno-poster level MENTALity lickers known as oboTics.

At the county level, the Moocher Myth is more intriguing. The Census Bureau counts federal dollars in five broad categories: retirement and disability payments, salaries and wages, procurement contracts, grants, and other direct payments. In 2004 -- the last year the Tax Foundation calculated the tax burden per county -- the counties that received the most per person in retirement or grants had higher vote margins for Democrat John Kerry.

But the counties that received the highest per-capita spending in the category “other direct payments” voted for George W. Bush.“Other direct payments” includes Medicaid, food stamps, crop subsidies, housing assistance and many other programs that people generally think of as “welfare.”

Bush and Obama, the Food Stamp Presidents

It’s true that the most recent figures from the Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service (provided to Factcheck.org/USA Today) show that a record number of people—some 46.2 million—are enrolled in the program. But the same data shows that more individuals were added to the program while George W. Bush was in office than have enrolled under Obama’s presidency: Under Bush, the program grew by 14.7 million individuals; under Obama so far, it’s grown by 14.2 million, and, as of October, was declining.

http://www.topix.com/forum/who/barack-obama/T...

declining.

Bush will keep that record.

The Rise of Food Stamp Nation
Newt Gingrich famously calls Barack Obama “the food-stamp president.” But the first president worthy of the moniker was George W. Bush. His administration brought a Madison Avenue element to the otherwise unreconstructed Great Society program. Not everyone who is eligible for food stamps knows it or wants to sign up. Bush began a recruitment campaign.
http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/305894...
and we all know how much the Bush admin loved black folks. all those potential discrimination lawsuits that never got taken up by the DOJ would seem to be an indication.
i have no problem with needy people receiving help via food stamps. i do have a problem when the "food" is served at a strip club, and I don't understand how anyone can defend that--lest feelings be hurt--or in order to stop stereotypes about recipients from being spread.

Adam Smith: This disposition to admire, and almost to worship, the rich and powerful, and to despise or, at least, neglect persons of poor and mean conditions, though necessary both to establish and to maintain the distinction of ranks and the order of society, is, at the same time, the great and most universal cause of the corruption of our moral sentiments.

No, you are a liar for this statement "That man profeses he cares about glowbull warming yet lives in a mansion with a carbon footprint of 20 homes."

Buying electric from green sources does not add to your carbon footprint.

You are either a liar or dumber than Hell.

i'd just like to know if there's a problem or not, and how big it is.

must be some sort of study or another that some right wing blogger has discovered to lead to all of this talk.
