Barack Obama, our next President

"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 ... Full Story

That's around the last time your KY Teabagger friend was born in CT!!
CT is an expensive state to live in....they didn't hand out fwee anything back in the day...such pwograms were just about unheard of in the working class sectors.
KY, not so much.
CT lost a tax paying native one, KY gained a GIFTED one.
There now.....that's MUCH closer to the TRUTH lol.

Ok. I think I've got it now.
Money is taken from Social Security and put into the general fund, then Social Security is paid back from the general fund.
I think you should begin with something a lot simpler, like where money comes from. How money is manipulated in government obviously confuses you. So, let's begin with a very simple question:
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
To answer this question, you actually have to identify a source of money.
If you can't answer this simple question, any other discussion about government expenditures will be beyond your ability to understand.
Ah like how yew stay right on topic DB...none of that easily sidetracked or digressing with you!!

50 years ago? Hartford, Connecticut? Let's see, that puts it about 1960's, right? Oh, but I think you're very wrong, Hartford Connecticut was a terrible mess in the 1960's. Where are you getting your information? I used to carry a small axe under my jacket back then and pulled it out several times to end potential arguments. The only good thing about the place back then was that no one had enough money to afford a gun. Oh well, cheers all. If you see or hear from our carol please tell her we're all missing her terribly. I worked there until 1971 or so... just after that civic center collapsed. Oh I guess it could've been worse alright but things can always get worse you know.
In what country?

Pictures: 1978 Hartford Civic Center Roof Collapse
On January 18, 1978, the Civic Center roof collapsed six hours after the University of Connecticut defeated the University of Massachusetts, 56-49. It collapsed into the arena below with a prolonged rumble at 4:19 a.m. The roof collapse was attributed to the weight of accumulated snow and ice from a 10-day storm. Miraculously, no one was hurt because the center was in the midst of an unusual three-day run of basketball games; no crews were inside making the changeover from basketball to hockey.``I'll just be thanking the Lord that no one died,'' said former Hartford Deputy Mayor Nicholas R. Carbone, the political leader most closely identified with the Civic Center. "That day when I got to the site and I saw it, I just thanked the Lord that it didn't happen five hours earlier.'' Just 12 hours after the collapse, working off a sketch on an envelope, City Manager James B. Daken announced the coliseum would be rebuilt "bigger and better."

The Obama administration is considering funding many more police officers in public schools to secure campuses, a leading Democratic senator said, part of a broad gun violence agenda that is likely to include a ban on high-capacity ammunition clips and universal background checks.
The school safety initiative, one of several under consideration, would make federal dollars available to schools that want to hire police officers and install surveillance equipment, although it is not nearly as far-ranging as the National Rifle Association’s proposal for armed guards in every U.S. school.

but you wait and see....it will be all or nothing with you nutjobs.
but that's not the way it works. and people who want that have no room to talk about tyranny.
Defending US Constitutional Rights is an honorable "all or nothing" deed - something not understood by Progressive Baboons like you.....or clearly understood and feared by Socialist Swine like you.

Joe Baby's "recommendations" are simply window dressing and his "submitting" them to the Jerk-In-Chief is routine political play-acting by democrats. Joe and Diane publicly recite their lines and scripts while the Boy Messiah sits cross-legged on the Mountaintop of Wisdom awaiting word from his underlings. The Jerk-In-Chief will then utter his momentous decision on Tuesday to ABC News' Chief Propagandists Diane Sawyer and Bahba Walters and to Oprah - the voice of black ignorant racism - to disseminate to the stupid unwashed masses.

Recall that other committee set up by the Boy Messiah for debt-reduction suggestions - the one whose suggestions he dissed and ignored afterwards and to this day.

Hiring local cops to guard schools helps to keep the Boy Messiah's Union friends and Dunkin' Donuts happy but does little to address the problem. The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun. Cops have a very checkered past for talent, reliability and trustworthiness. Read the newspapers, Doody.

Barack Obama brushed away what appeared to be tears during his speech in Newtown CT in the aftermath of the massacre. The Washington Post slobbered all over itself slobbering over Obama:
President Obama, so often cool and unemotional, struggled to maintain his composure Friday as he addressed a nation reeling from a mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school.
“The majority of those who died today were children — beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old,” Obama said partway into a four-minute statement.
Then he paused, tilting his head down and looking at his notes, for 12 long seconds. He wiped a tear from his left eye.
One imagines that is as it should be, but little attention is given to the deaths of children in theaters of war- the children who die in drone strikes. Obama’s drone strikes. Robert Greenwald wrote about that at the Huffington Post:
During my recent trip to Pakistan as part of our upcoming documentary film, Drones Exposed, I was struck most by the stories told to me by children who had experienced a U.S. drone strike firsthand. The impact of America’s drone war in the likes of Pakistan and Yemen will linger on, especially for the loved ones of the 178 children killed in those countries by U.S. drone strikes.
War Costs’ latest video (with accompanying report) brings attention to the children who have died as a result of drone strikes. The video names some of the children who perished in these strikes, and points out the obfuscation tactics of American officials who will not own up to the significant amount of civilian casualties that have occurred due to this legally- and morally-dubious policy.
In addition to the video, War Costs offers this report detailing the effects of drone strikes on children. The findings come mainly from the diligent investigative reporting of TBIJ and the groundbreaking reports on the impact of drone strikes by Stanford and New York University researchers (Living Under Drones: Death, Injury and Trauma to Civilians from US Drone Practices in Pakistan) and researchers at Columbia University (The Civilian Impact of Drones: Unexamined Costs, Unanswered Questions).
In an effort to compel answers about why these innocent civilians have died without acknowledgement or explanation from the U.S. government, War Costs is calling on the U.S. House of Representatives to debate and pass Rep. Dennis Kucinich’s bill that calls for more transparency regarding U.S. drone strike policy
I'm sure that the Boy Messiah also shed tears after Fast n Furious led to the deaths of many innocent Mexican citizens and American Border Guards.

Laugh long and hard enough and tears will always flow.

of course where she lives, she and her neighbors don't worry about drive-by shootings or mothers shot in hallways while trying to protect their kids from gang shootouts EVERY SINGLE DAY.
BUT THAT'S HOW LIMOUSINE LIBS LIVE! they know what's best for others, but nothing personally affects them.

That IS one reason I do NOT like the current "healthcare reform" garbage though...talk about sticking it those who at least try and work and keep themselves going.

They (as in Congress) REALLY need to be working on THAT robbinghoodieticwink paper weight of backwards legislation (rather than wastin time on all that 30-50 years backwards stuff!!!)
