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

We have more hand guns than the next 17 nations combined and still you idiots want more. 3,000 of our children are killed annually and still you want more guns. By the way I just had a nice article published recently about life in rural America and I have talked to many of you gun nuts and most all are terrible ill informed and clueless about responsible gun control.
You have a lot of things "published" only problem is they are all right here on topix.

I live in an area that was hammered by the financial crisis/mortgage meltdown and I'm seeing huge improvements in business openings, people are joining COC's again and there's scuttlebutt about new hospitals, and other large employers moving to or expanding in the area.

There will be some "big names" that disappear, there is actually a published list. Avon is on the list as is Mitsubishi Motors America and many more. Tough shyte! BTW Mitsubishi LTD is not broke having just pledged $770 million to a German windfarm company.

You mean like killing Bin Laden, and killing many of their top leaders who were in essence our real enemies. So to leave while Osama and his leaders were still operational was to simply invite another attack somewhere somehow on more Americans. Obama has crippled that lot forever. Your daily un-American posts are typical of the fanatical right.
Osama bin Laden was not in Afghanistan.

Liberal Mental Disorder Revisited
By Dr. Alan Bates, MD.
We the People have spoken and accomplished a slight pushback in the perverted anti-American socialist agenda of Mr. Obama and his sicko narcissistic partners in crime, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. Right now is a good time to review their psychopathology and that of those who blindly follow them off the cliff.
The root of liberal mental disorder is in the personality development of the individual who does not mature normally to value self sufficiency and independence. Such individuals seek a parental substitute. The most convenient is a socialist government. Those with liberal mental disorder are willing to trade their potential for success through education, hard work and respect for others for government subsidies funded through redistribution of wealth which normally accrues to those who earn their money through hard work. Many liberals want a free ride on the wings of success of the rest of us and believe that in order to achieve that free ride, government must impose harsh rules which are essentially punishment of hard working Americans, in the form of progressive taxation and other schemes designed to divert personal wealth to those who depend upon government.
Most liberals are intolerant and immature just as are spoiled children. In fact they are the adult version of spoiled children complete with certain sociopathic traits such as pathologic lying and distortion of facts in order to achieve their goals. One example of this is Al Gore’s bogus global warming phenomenon, the objective of which is cap and trade which would redistribute wealth while controlling most Americans through oppressive energy prices. Global warming has been disproved numerous times by real scientists without a liberal socialist agenda. Cap and trade has been tried in Europe and did not work. Now we are in the midst of one of the coldest winters on record!
A second example of liberal lies is Obama’s heatlhcare debacle which is unaffordable and destroys any advantage our system has over that of other nations and which was rammed down our collective throats largely unread by members of Congress. The liberal Left propagated numerous lies which include “it will save money”,“it will provide care for uninsured Americans”, and “it will have no effect on your private plan”. Never mind the law did not address the most expensive burden on the heatlhcare system—tort reform. Never mind that half of the “uninsured” are voluntarily so. Never mind that competition of insurance companies across state lines was not an integral part of the law. This law is an exercise in control of the people by government pure and simple. Fortunately, we cannot afford it and so it is doomed to failure.
Another example of liberal mental disorder is the liberals’ claim of tolerance for all religions, even those bent on destroying America. Their legal embodiment is the ACLU which strives to destroy the rights of Christians and Jews as well as desecrate the sacred symbols and celebrations of these two religions. Thus most liberals are intolerant, and worse than that, hypocrites.
Liberals are peaceniks who believe if they disarm themselves, the rest of the world will too. This is reflected in Obama’s attempt to downsize our nuclear arsenal while ignoring that collectively there are many nuclear powers besides Russia which are greater threats to our existence. Naivety or stupidity, or both? Liberals deny that anyone would war with us if we seek diplomacy to resolve differences. They never learn the lessons of history such as the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor and Hitler’s invasion of Europe resulting in the tragic annihilation of millions of innocent human lives.
While the rest of the world including the United Arab Emirates, Russia, Iran and North Korea develops energy independence through mining of fossil fuels and construction of nuclear power plants, the Obama administration does not.

Why not? Do liberals understand the equation between energy independence and national security? America is the most insecure energy dependent industrialized nation on Earth!
Liberals mental disorder is characterized by narcissism, selective memory, irrational approaches to problems and denial of reality. Unfortunately, during the 2008 election, too many gullible dimwits voted those with severe liberal mental disorder into control of our national affairs and now we reap the tragic consequences which include a multi-trillion dollar debt which alone will kill our nation if not addressed immediately. The work for “We the People” is now cut out. We must restore our government to smaller size and drastically cut spending by electing rational individuals into important offices. This recent election was only a start.

This should bring violent crime to a screeching halt:
The following is a list, provided by the White House, of executive actions President Obama plans to take to address gun violence.
1. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background check system.
2. Address unnecessary legal barriers, particularly relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, that may prevent states from making information available to the background check system.
3. Improve incentives for states to share information with the background check system.
4. Direct the Attorney General to review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun to make sure dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks.
5. Propose rulemaking to give law enforcement the ability to run a full background check on an individual before returning a seized gun.
6. Publish a letter from ATF to federally licensed gun dealers providing guidance on how to run background checks for private sellers.
7. Launch a national safe and responsible gun ownership campaign.
8. Review safety standards for gun locks and gun safes (Consumer Product Safety Commission).
9. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations.
10. Release a DOJ report analyzing information on lost and stolen guns and make it widely available to law enforcement.
11. Nominate an ATF director.
12. Provide law enforcement, first responders, and school officials with proper training for active shooter situations.
13. Maximize enforcement efforts to prevent gun violence and prosecute gun crime.
14. Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.
15. Direct the Attorney General to issue a report on the availability and most effective use of new gun safety technologies and challenge the private sector to develop innovative technologies.
16. Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes.(If a doctor asks you about your guns, ask him about his.)
17. Release a letter to health care providers clarifying that no federal law prohibits them from reporting threats of violence to law enforcement authorities.
18. Provide incentives for schools to hire school resource officers.
19. Develop model emergency response plans for schools, houses of worship and institutions of higher education.
20. Release a letter to state health officials clarifying the scope of mental health services that Medicaid plans must cover.
21. Finalize regulations clarifying essential health benefits and parity requirements within ACA exchanges.
22. Commit to finalizing mental health parity regulations.
23. Launch a national dialogue led by Secretaries Sebelius and Duncan on mental health.
See, that's the thing. Even if Obama got everything he wanted on his wish list for gun control, it wouldn't have stopped the shooting in Connecticut.

His mother had a background check and was a registered gun owner.
Her son stole her guns.

Anyone can steal guns.

The recent recession was no more severe than many others, but the recovery was particularly puny and continues to be so.
I disagree with its, 1929 again for expection its costing the Federal Government extremely more to provide for the entitlement society which the United States didnt have during the Great Depression and then on top of that the US has to deal with all the borrowing GW Bush did which nothing was paid for & it was the collapse of Lehman Brothers's which started the chain reaction and cards started to fall and Bruce Bartlett predictions were right on in his 2006 book "Impostor: How George W. Bush Bankrupted America and Betrayed the Reagan Legacy" and said it wouldnt matter if it was a Republican or a Democrats in the Whitehouse the chickens were coming home to roost meaning all the debt accumulated under Bush.

I am ecstatic that Obama is taking action to reign in out of control gun abuse! What I have asked for months is for anyone to name ONE gun right they no longer have that they lost as a result of Obama's term as president. Still zero. In fact I have MORE gun rights, I can now conceal carry in National Parks and there is conceal carry reciprocity with just about every state between Michigan and Texas. As a gun owner I am embarrassed at the position the NRA has taken. It makes all gun owners look like idiots, like you.
Um...who's the idiot?

"The National Rifle Association on Friday appealed a federal judge's ruling that put a halt to concealed weapons permit holders arming themselves in national parks."

"The NRA even lobbied for the National Right to Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011, which allows even non-residents of a state to carry concealed firearms in the state. "

The expanded gun rights you praised were lobbied for by the NRA.

The economy could experience the current growth rate of 1% or so forever, technically never have a recession, and still be rotten.
Following a recession, growth rates in the 4-5% rate should be expected, and have not been even remotely approached under Obama.
If you're happy with puny growth, you're drinking the Kool-Aid.
You were comparing this recession to any recession.

This is far worse & thereby recovery will be longer.

Psychiatrist Confirms: Liberalism Is a Mental Disorder

As a clinical and forensic psychiatrist, Lyle Rossiter has treated over 1,500 patients and examined over 2,700 civil and criminal cases. Turning his hand to political psychopathology, the author of The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness, has diagnosed an alarming percentage of the population as suffering from the grotesque form of mental derangement known by some as moonbattery.

Among Rossiter's observations:

Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded. Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave.

A social scientist who understands human nature will not dismiss the vital roles of free choice, voluntary cooperation and moral integrity — as liberals do. A political leader who understands human nature will not ignore individual differences in talent, drive, personal appeal and work ethic, and then try to impose economic and social equality on the population — as liberals do. And a legislator who understands human nature will not create an environment of rules which over-regulates and over-taxes the nation's citizens, corrupts their character and reduces them to wards of the state — as liberals do.

The roots of liberalism — and its associated madness — can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind. When the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious.
