Barack Obama, our next President

Liberals and how they think:

WINFREY NARRATION: After Sarah Palin attended a New York Yankees game with her 14-year-old daughter Willow, David cracked a sex joke about a baseball player and the young girl. Letterman says he thought Sarah Palin was with her oldest daughter, Bristol, who made headlines when she became pregnant at age 17.

WINFREY TO LETTERMAN: Why did you apologize?

LETTERMAN: I’ll tell you why I apologized. I felt like Sarah Palin was somebody I wanted to continue to be able to make fun of and I felt like if I don’t apologize, if I don’t sincerely express my regret, I will not be able to go forward making fun of her. And truly, I felt bad for the 14-year-old. You know, that was just like, oh nice going, you got the wrong daughter. That was just dumb, stupid joke that fell into dumb luck and got worse.

A Georgia mother shot an ex-convict six times to protect her and her children after he apparently forced his way into the familys home.
The mom heard knocks on her front door Friday and assumed it was just a solicitor, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
She told her 9-year-old twins not to answer the door and, when the visitor began repeatedly ringing the doorbell, she called her husband at his job and he told her to gather the children and hide.
He opens the closet door and finds himself staring down the barrel of a .38 revolver.
According to the Journal-Constitution, the father then dialed 911 and his wife, who works from a home office, hid with the children in a crawlspace.
By that time, according to the paper, the intruder had used a crowbar to forcibly enter the home, and made his way to the home office.
He opens the closet door and finds himself staring down the barrel of a .38 revolver, Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The woman fired six bullets, five of which hit Paul Ali Slater in the face and neck area, Chapman said. But Slater, who has arrests dating to 2008 and was released from jail in August, was still conscious.
The guys face down, crying, the sheriff said. The woman told him to stay down or shed shoot again.
While down, the woman and her children ran to a neighbors house, and the injured intruder made it out of the home and into his car, the paper reported.
Authorities found Slater a short time later bleeding profusely in a neighbors driveway.
Im dying. Help me, he told them, according to Chapman.
Slater was transported to Gwinnett Medical Center and is expected to survive, the sheriff said.
Good thing she had a gun protected under the 2nd amendment.

I will concur that I am not aware of all that was in the bill; which is another issue altogether. Let's have clean bills without sneaking other stuff in them.
The amount that was released went to flood insurance companies? I'm not sure I understand that. Why not just directly help the people instead of insurance companies?
My attempt at humor may have worked if you'd been aware of the recent study that revealed an alarming (yeah right) increase in food stamp abuse. The study found more and more people are using their freebies on junk food, alcohol, sex clubs and pornography.

Giving aid directly to the victims eliminates too many steps in the process, too many slices of pie.

Global warming is probably during the summer?
23 December 2012 Last updated at 13:15 ET

West Antarctic Ice Sheet warming twice earlier estimate

A new analysis of temperature records indicates that the Western Antarctic Ice Sheet is warming nearly twice as fast as previously thought.

US researchers say they found the first evidence of warming during the southern hemisphere's summer months.

They are worried that the increased melting of ice as a result of warmer temperatures could contribute to sea-level rise.

The study has been published in the journal Nature Geoscience.

The scientists compiled data from records kept at Byrd station, established by the US in the mid-1950s and located towards the centre of the West Antarctic ice sheet (WAIS).

Previously scientists were unable to draw any conclusions from the Byrd data as the records were incomplete.

The new work used a computer model of the atmosphere and a numerical analysis method to fill in the missing observations.

The results indicate an increase of 2.4C in average annual temperature between 1958 and 2010.

"What we're seeing is one of the strongest warming signals on Earth," says Andrew Monaghan, a co-author and scientist at the US National Centre for Atmospheric Research.

"This is the first time we've been able to determine that there's warming going on during the summer season." he added.

Bah, we used good old-fashioned food stamps when I was a kid.

Sure, Homer comes from humble beginnings. Trust me nothing will humble you more that your parents paying for food with food stamps.

The low information receivers, the moochers, the cheaters, the pigs at the trough don't care, they want others to support them, to hell with the ramifications and the looming bankruptcy. The liberal elite know this where we're headed and don't care either, I'll assume they think they are immune. These clowns in the LSM, Hollywood, etc. aren't fooling me one bit.
Isn't most of Hollyweird avowed socialists, marxists or communists?

I mean, they can't squawk enough about paying their fair share and gun control when they go to Canada to make films to avoid paying taxes and star in violent films using guns.

Sounds to me like they have a contradiction in interests - just wanting to preserve their own.

Interesting though that not one thin dime has been cut from the budget since the last debt ceiling fiasco and this president is now once again saying he's raising it no matter what.

Sounds to me like he has a contradiction in interests too and doesn't have to worry about reelection.

Wasn't it you who brought up the New Party and this president's affiliation?

The current planetary influences tend to make everyone groan a bit. Life is not perfect and may be less pleasant than usual, but what can you do? Get real for one thing! That's the way it is and once you accept this, everything becomes much easier to handle. Be solid and dutiful - qualities for which the Bull is renowned - and you'll come out the other side with your halo polished. Focus on some undeveloped potential in your life and take the first steps towards realizing it.

Does my halo look a little tarnished?

National Geographic says that new research shows the magnetic poles moving at a rapid clip 25 miles a year. A paleomagnetist at Oregon State University says that, at its current rate, the pole could move to Siberia within the next half-century.

That was 7 years ago.

http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2005/...

NPR said that the location of the magnetic North Pole is moving toward Siberia at about 40 miles per year.

That was 2 years ago.

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.

Monday, Jan 7, 2013 Enjoy the calm morning, Aquarius, because things are going to get crazier and more energetic as the day goes on. Emotions will run high, and people will be more opinionated than usual. A conflict may arise from which you just want to extricate yourself. Realize that a more peaceful agreement will ensue if you jump in and add your two cents' worth.
