That's the entire plan.
“Obama’s Plan to Bankrupt the USA: The Cloward-Piven Theory.”
"Two Columbia University sociologists, Professor of Social Work Richard A. Cloward and his then-research associate Frances Fox Piven, wrote a pivotal article articulating “a strategy to end poverty.”
The solution to ending poverty, required expanding the government welfare state beyond providing Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, unemployment insurance and food stamps.
Having concluded that a capitalist system would never apply capital fairly to fulfill the needs of workers, the two Columbia University-based sociologists concluded that a progressive strategy of voting ever-expanding social welfare programs could push the capitalist system to the breaking point.
“Barack Obama and the radical left activists now in control of the Democratic Party see the Cloward-Piven theory as predicting a welfare state expanded to the point where the accumulated national debt bankrupts the USA,”
“The Cloward-Piven theory predicts capitalism will collapse such that the USA can be reconstructed as a truly socialist state dedicated to the elimination of private property and the creation of ‘social justice’ achieved by redistributing income from the ‘haves’ to the ‘have-nots.’”
“Saul Alinsky’s tactics of power politics explain why Obama continually fans the flames of class warfare,”
“In his 2012 presidential campaign, Obama followed the Saul Alinsky playbook chapter and verse, campaigning on the theme to ‘tax the rich.’ When the accumulated U.S. debt causes a credit downgrade in Obama’s second term, Obama and the radical left will continue to blame capitalism and ‘the rich.’”
In the last stages of credit default and technical bankruptcy, the Cloward-Piven theory explains why Americans will abandon the U.S. Constitution in favor of establishing a socialist state.

Congress has already signed off & are spineless.
They got theirs and too bad for you.
The majority of people simply do not care nor do they pay attention to much of anything and are caught up pitted against each other in the orchestrated class & economic division & warfare; their chains being pulled by the puppet master(s) all along. Played like a fiddle.
There are no plans to correct or boost the economy, there never was.
Just keep the hope (lol) and they will change (to pure socialism and a totally centralized gov.).
You already traded your freedom for chains of (false) security = slavery & serfdom.
Enjoy your slavery & serfdom.
Sounds just like the plan to me. Obama is right on track with liberals firing up the furnaces in the engine room.

Can people really be this blind?

Nevermind, I know the answer from reading history.

The statistics are available somewhere and probably vary by region but I'm betting that proportionately, the bulk of abortions in America are performed on Caucasians.

Would also bet that proportionately, in teen pregnancies resulting in birth, the mother would be Caucasian.

Huh? Didn't you hear all the people in here commenting on what a beautiful town Newtown is? You can pretty much drive through Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, just by navigating from one beautiful town to another. Try that in texas. Hahahahahahahahahaha... You see? We New Englanders learned something elemental many years ago: life without beauty is like being married to a conservative. Doesn't really matter how you dress it up, it's still a pig.

And STILL you continue to lie.

You keep using 10% without any data to support it.

That's what liars do, post stupid answers without benefit of factual data to support it.

Until you can back up your 10%, you are just another right wing liar from a wingnut liar.

I caught you in a lie, and once again, you're attempting to change the subject.

It's not working, Dweeb..........

Concerning your diatribe avoiding the original point of discussioni:
The total amount of aid from the United States to Russia during World War II amounted to less than 10 percent of what Russia used to defeat Germany.
That aid didn't even begin until after the Lend Lease Act was signed in 1940. And, it didn't reach it's maximum rate until 1944, after Russia had already blown the Germans out of Russia.
Reference Germany's last failed attempt to stall the Russian advance after beginning to retreat on all fronts: Kirsk, August, 1943. After this battle, the defeat of Germany by Russia and the destruction of Germany was a foregone conclusion.
If you want to compare that to what else was happening in the war when it was certain Russia would defeat Germany, there were no other allied boots in the rest of Europe, and would not be until the invasion of Italy in September, 1943.
Now, back to the questions you have been dancing all over the sawdust to avoid answering:
Where exactly was Obama when the White House was watching the real-time video of the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi?
And;
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
Where exactly was Obama when the real-time video of the battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment was being watched in the White House?
And;
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
Your dance routine is getting repetitive and boring. How about providing an answer to these two questions nobody on Earth has been able to answer.

A Message to You, GOP: Strong Parties Win Majorities Rather Than Changing the Rules

The post-mortems are over. Most Republicans now admit what everyone else knows: Romney took a beating last November. Romney didn’t just lose under relatively favorable conditions. He managed to underperform John McCain with the party’s base without successfully reaching out to new supporters.

How should the party get better results in the future? One proposal is to change the rules of the game. Romney lost because he failed to win majorities in enough states to collect 270 electoral votes. At National Review, Katrina Trinko asks whether Republicans would do better if states awarded their electoral college votes by congressional district, or the electoral college were entirely replaced by a national popular vote (NPV).

The answer to the second question is almost certainly “no”. Republicans lost the popular vote in five of the last six presidential elections. And the demographic picture is growing less favorable to them as reliable constituencies–married couples, whites, and Christians–continue to shrink. It’s theoretically possible that Republicans could win a national popular vote by improving turnout in their strongholds. But it’s more likely that NPV would shut the GOP out of the White House for good.

....But the main reason Republicans should reject attempts to win the game by changing the rules is that obsession with procedural gimmicks is symptomatic of a broken party. In a democracy, healthy parties pursue decisive national majorities. Sore losers try to eke out victories through electoral manipulation.

Republicans once understood this principle, which was the basis of Nixon and Reagan’s challenges to the New Deal coalition that was then in its death-throes. It was also the guiding idea of Disraeli’s construction of a “One Nation” party from the ruins of the old Tories following the Reform Act of 1832. British Conservatives spent a half-century weening themselves of their dependence on rotten boroughs. It is dispiriting to see Republicans pursuing a modern version of the same vice.

Recently saw an interview with Heidi Heitcamp, newly elected Democrat Senator from North Dakota. She dismissed any possibility of severe anti-gun legislation.
lets hope so, but now just heard on the news that the extremist in the democrat party are pressuring Obama to use executive order to ban guns.

Mental illness is pretty tricky as demonstrated by James Holmes of Aurora fame whose IQ and experiences enabled him to understand that he was going over the edge. The VA Tech shooter presented a better case study but he too was overlooked by parents, physicians and professional educators.
The answer is that there is no answer or any legislation that will keep guns, explosives etc out of the hands of every mental defect that looks and behaves somewhat normal.
Intelligence is not related to mental illness. The Aurora murderer was a mentally ill individual protected by medical confidentiality laws. His behavior was hardly "normal."

Same with the VA tech murderer.

What prevents you from calling these people what they are: "murderers"?

Biden On Guns: Executive Order Is On The Table

http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/b...

no point in crying foul.....

President George H.W. Bush did this in 1989 to ban the import of assault weapons, using powers under the Gun Control Act of 1968, which stipulated that legal rifles had to be “suitable for sporting purposes.” Bush acted after a serial criminal killed five schoolchildren and wounded 29 others with an AK-47 assault rifle on Jan. 27, 1989, in Stockton, Calif.

President Clinton expanded that action with a second executive order in 1998 banning firearm imports and ammunition from China.

so yes, it's happened before despite what the right wing scare sites are going to try to tell us.
