Anyone who has any praise for any communist system or country belongs in the clearly clueless clown clique(CCCC).
The Republican Party under Lincoln praised & supported the ideals of Communism especially how everyone is treated as equal & classless.

An Unfinished Revolution: Karl Marx and Abraham Lincoln

The impact of the American Civil War on Karl Marx, and Karl Marx on America.

Karl Marx and Abraham Lincoln exchanged letters at the end of the Civil War. Although they were divided by far more than the Atlantic Ocean, they agreed on the cause of “free labor” and the urgent need to end slavery. In his introduction, Robin Blackburn argues that Lincoln’s response signaled the importance of the German American community and the role of the international communists in opposing European recognition of the Confederacy.

The ideals of communism, voiced through the International Working Men’s Association, attracted many thousands of supporters throughout the US, and helped spread the demand for an eight-hour day. Blackburn shows how the IWA in America—born out of the Civil War—sought to radicalize Lincoln’s unfinished revolution and to advance the rights of labor, uniting black and white, men and women, native and foreign-born. The International contributed to a profound critique of the capitalist robber barons who enriched themselves during and after the war, and it inspired an extraordinary series of strikes and class struggles in the postwar decades.

In addition to a range of key texts and letters by both Lincoln and Marx, this book includes articles from the radical New York-based journal Woodhull and Claflin’s Weekly, an extract from Thomas Fortune’s classic work on racism Black and White, Frederick Engels on the progress of US labor in the 1880s, and Lucy Parson’s speech at the founding of the Industrial Workers of the World.

Republican House of Representative approval rating at 9%.
President Obama approval rating 53%
All three vacancies on the labor board had been open for months before Obama acted to fill them.

Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa called the ruling "a radical departure from precedent" and argued that Obama had no choice but to act.

"Throughout his presidency, Republicans have employed unprecedented partisan delay tactics and filibusters to prevent confirmation of nominees to lead the NLRB, thus crippling the board's legal authority to act," Harkin said.

If Obama's recess appointment of Cordray to the newly created consumer board is eventually ruled invalid, it could nullify all the regulations the consumer board has issued, many of which affect the mortgage business.

So, in addition to prosecuting an illegal war with the confederacy, he was woefully ignorant of the inherent failures of any communist society? No wonder Booth shot him.

Reminder of our present financial situation and the dems responsible for it:
The Government-Created Subprime Mortgage Meltdown
by Thomas J. DiLorenzo
The thousands of mortgage defaults and foreclosures in the "subprime" housing market (i.e., mortgage holders with poor credit ratings) is the direct result of thirty years of government policy that has forced banks to make bad loans to un-creditworthy borrowers. The policy in question is the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), which compels banks to make loans to low-income borrowers and in what the supporters of the Act call "communities of color" that they might not otherwise make based on purely economic criteria.
The original lobbyists for the CRA were the hardcore leftists who supported the Carter administration and were often rewarded for their support with government grants and programs like the CRA that they benefited from. These included various "neighborhood organizations," as they like to call themselves, such as "ACORN" (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). These organizations claim that over $1 trillion in CRA loans have been made, although no one seems to know the magnitude with much certainty. A U.S. Senate Banking Committee staffer told me about ten years ago that at least $100 billion in such loans had been made in the first twenty years of the Act.
more..........
Been 4 years, I think it's time to hold Obama the free market destroyer accountable. He get's credit for 200,000 new federal jobs and the failed "green" energy disasters that cost us app.$90 billion, but no credit for a single private sector job, quite the contrary.
Piling on tens of thousands of new rules and regulations is not how you unloose the free market, only in the delusions of misguided communists would that scheme work..
Jobs??? We don't need no steenking jobs!!! Barak Obama

No offense, but you really should educate yourself before speaking falsehoods with such confidence.
The Russian economist, Grigory Yavlinsky, who became an important advisor to Mikhail Gorbachev said the Soviet system was not working because the workers were not working.
Sound familiar?
You mean they weren't making enough money to pay for the military, which brought down the economy?

Yep! I got that son.

Obama never mentioned global warming, nitwit.

There is no such term used today.

But you've had your head stuffed up your butt for so long, it's probably the last thing you remember.

Most Americans believe the science. Yu believe the deniers.

Guess which attitude helped win the election??

Your denying lost big time among the voting public.

I think that's part of the 'stupid' that Bobby Jindal and Haley Barbour say your side needs to get rid of.

Sorry that Bobby called you stupid.

Nuculur as usual Wrong!! The question of funding was asked doing a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee!! Assistant Secretary of State’ Lamb’ was asked whether there was "any budget consideration and lack of budget" which played into the number of people assigned for security at the Benghazi consulate. Lamb's answer: "No!!
