Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

Nine former contestants are taking legal action against American idol, claiming that they were forced off the show because of their race.

American Idol is at the center of a racism row after nine black former contestants claimed that they were all forced off the show as part of a racist plan to boost ratings.

The singers, from various seasons, are preparing to take legal action against the hit talent show which they say "permanently and severely impaired" their personal and professional lives.

Corey Clark, Jaered Andrews, Donnie Williams, brothers Terrell Brittenum and Derrell Brittenum,Thomas Daniels, Akron Watson, Ju'Not Joyner and Chris Golightly insisted that they were targeted by producers of the Fox show who set out to humiliate them by making them audition and then disqualifying them due to their criminal records.

New York attorney James Freeman, has submitted a letter to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission seeking permission to sue producers behind the hit talent show on behalf of his nine clients.

Freeman claims that after Jermaine Jones was axed in 2012 in relation to outstanding warrants for his arrest, he investigated the show and discovered that producers had only ever publicly disqualified nine people, and they were all black.

In the document, which has been obtained by editors at Tmz.com , Freeman states American Idol violated California employment laws which ban bosses from asking potential employees about their arrest history, as the men were essentially seeking employment.

This is really funny considering black crime statistics.

I smell a Race Card ploy to get millions from the deep pockets of Simon Cowell. If he's got too much security around him making it impossible to mug him or B&E, hire an ambulance chaser and then sue for all you can on phoney charges. It hurts the show's image.

They're hoping Simon will throw money at them to make them go away.
Either way, it's a win-win situation for them.

This is all part of the Uprising Of The Unsuccessful in America today. Are you a loser? Mug somebody and then vote for the Boy Messiah to mug someone else, too, for you.

Given the choice between Medicare/Medicaid and single payer, single payer is the most cost effective way to go if you compare our per capita healthcare spending with single payer countries. I don't think the ACA's gonna bridge that cost gap.

You see, all those great benefits included in the Affordable Care Act don't come cheap, which is why the new healthcare law includes a barrage of new "Obamacare taxes."
And don't believe for a second the new Obamacare taxes will hit only the "rich" or those making over $250,000. Some do, but you'd be surprised at how many of these new taxes also hit the middle class. Worse still, many of these new measures are disguised as taxes on businesses. The bulk of these "stealth taxes" will be transferred to consumers via higher prices for drugs and health insurance.
"The legislation imposes more than $569 billion in new or increased taxes, the vast majority of which will fall on businesses," writes Michael Tanner in a 2011 Cato Institute report on the impact of the healthcare law. "Many of those taxes, especially those on hospitals, insurers, and medical device manufacturers, will ultimately be passed on through higher health costs."
Even still, few realize just how many new taxes lurk within the law's 2,500-plus pages because most of the talk about the Affordable Care Act focused on the constitutionality of the individual mandate.

Single Payor would be the best & most cost effective.

Actually, electors have cast rogue votes in the past, although without any effect on the result.
Under the Constitution, the popular vote is irrelevant. The states are free to choose how their electoral votes are apportioned. Believe that Maine already allocates votes by Congressional district. Maybe Nebraska as well.
Let's take an extreme condition where one candidate carries just one state, say California, by a margin of 5 million votes. The other candidate wins every other state, by a total margin of 4.9 million votes. Should one state control the entire election?
Parliamentary systems, such as Great Britain, elect their Prime Minister by virtue of which party wins the most seats in Parliament. By this measure, the leader of the Republican Party would be Prime Minister.
We are now faced with a situation where the vast majority of the United States, by land area, counties, Congressional districts, etc., is Republican. Democrat power is concentrated in relatively small major urban areas. Just look at a map of red counties versus blue counties and the map is almost all red.
So the real breakdown in our politics is urban versus rural, with distinctly different value sets, the issue of firearms being just one. What we need is to find a way to balance these interests so that each group can live as they desire without being dominated by the other, because they have vastly different lifestyles. For example, gun control measures that may appeal to New york voters will not appeal to Wyoming voters, because the conditions in those states are different.
Try a different scenario, in the above you've got the entire vote divided almost equally between California and the 49 other States. We can also just look back at history at the few of instances in which the results of the popular vote and the electoral college conflicted by a percentage point or two.

The Libertarian Party position is that spending should go down until there is no deficit.
You have to take the platform as a whole, it doesn't work if you just cherry-pick it. I'm certainly not the only libertarian who thinks that intergenerational debt is theft and that while the preference would be cutting spending if that "can't" be done then revenues MUST increase to erase the deficit. That's the basis of fiscal responsibility and was in fact the way the government conducted itself until the 16th Amendment.

"Government should not incur debt, which burdens future generations without their consent."

The Republicans are becoming so desperate that now they want to change all of the rules. Never mind the "FACT" that most voters now see them as the obstructionist party. Still they continue to be the out dated moralistic phonies seemingly unaware of public opinion. Same old rhetoric every election, GUNS, GAYS, ABORTION, RELIGION along with their racist views and anti women campaigns. Totally blind to the real needs and desires of fellow Americans. Power and greed reigns supreme.

Babeu criticizes Obama and the political class in Washington for exploiting the Sandy Hook massacre and other tragic events to push an unprecedented gun control agenda.

“Do you honestly feel that any criminal or someone who is mentally ill will obey an executive order made by you related to ‘gun control?’” he writes in the letter dated January 16.

“I have sworn a solemn oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America when I was first sworn in as an Army Private, later as an Army Officer, then as a Police Officer and now twice as the constitutionally elected Sheriff,” he writes.“You too Mr. President have taken the same oath, therefore I am gravelly alarmed – just as most Americans are that you would attempt to circumvent the Constitution of the United States.”

He then informs Obama that he will not obey “any ‘law’ or regulation created by an executive order of your office which is contrary to what the Constitution of the United States of America says” and pledges that he will not infringe on the Second Amendment rights of American citizens in Pinal County, Arizona.

Obama and the White House have not responded to Babeu’s letter.

Here is the letter in its entirety:

Dear Mr. President,

Last year, I was re-elected overwhelmingly to my second term as Sheriff of Pinal County, Arizona. The citizens of Pinal County have placed their sacred trust into my hands and the hands of my office to keep them and their families safe.

Our nation has seen several tragic attacks against innocent adults and children by criminals armed with guns. Because of these attacks, many politicians including yourself have used these tragic events as a means to push their agenda related to “gun control.”

America has seen an even higher number of our citizens killed by impaired drivers involved in automobile collisions. Why are you not seeking to remove vehicles from our roadways?….it’s because you realize it’s the drivers who are at fault and not the vehicle they were driving. This same analogy holds true with these shootings….it’s not the gun that’s at fault but rather the criminals who use them. Do you honestly feel that any criminal or someone who is mentally ill will obey an executive order made by you related to “gun control?” Criminals get their name, because they don’t follow our laws already Mr. President. I have sworn a solemn oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America when I was first sworn in as an Army Private, later as an Army Officer, then as a Police Officer and now twice as the constitutionally elected Sheriff. You too Mr. President have taken the same oath, therefore I am gravelly alarmed – just as most Americans are that you would attempt to circumvent the Constitution of the United States.

The most important office in our republic is that of a private citizen. You are not a dictator or a king, who can act unilaterally and ignore our legislative process of law making. All elected leaders are empowered as a trustee of the people we are elected to serve. We are given designated and limited powers. Your actions and quest for unconstitutional power threatens the future of our sacred Republic and the Liberty we all hold so dear. Your own administration during,“Operation Fast and Furious” facilitated and approved the transfer of over 2,000 weapons to the Mexican Drug Cartels who the Mexican Government is at war against and over 60,000 people have been killed. Those same weapons have made their way back into the United States and have been used to kill and injure our citizens and members of law enforcement, yet now you threate

Galt is typical of the right, programmed to the hilt. Never mind that the real people in the know confirm that global warming is a real threat. But unfortunately his politics comes first, just like the Republican party is finding out the hard way.

Mr. President, if you attempt to carry through with your proposal, it will hinder the ability of good citizens to defend and protect themselves and others against those who wish to cause them harm through the use of deadly force. Your actions would turn many good citizens, who wish to maintain their God given Constitutional Rights to bear arms, into criminals.

I am writing you this letter today to inform you that any “law” or regulation created by an executive order of your office which is contrary to what the Constitution of the United States of America says, shall be deemed as unlawful and shall not be carried out by myself or my office.

I will also push for legislation which would make it a crime for any federal law enforcement officer to infringe upon any of Constitutional rights of the citizens I am sworn to protect. Neither myself nor you have any right to infringe upon the 2nd Amendment Constitutional Rights of our citizens. Former President Ronald Regan said it best,“The right of the citizen to keep and bear arms must not be infringed if liberty in America is to survive.”
