Barack Obama, our next President

ban a regular schmo from having more that 7 rounds while allowing RETIRED cop 15?
Why is it that none of the disturbed and hate-filled liberals, who steal and use guns, then go and kill movie-goers and children in schools, has never been identified as a conservative, independent or a NRA member?

Obviously you are ignorant of events. Zimmerman being armed didn't cause Hoodieman to follow Zimmerman to his car and attack him. In fact, if Hoodieman had known Zimmerman was armed, he probably would not have chased Zimmerman down and started the fight.
The Trayvon Obama case is old news.

Prosecutors are just waiting for the right moment to make a deal or drop the case. This will never go to trial.

A likely not guilty verdict would provide a hunting license, making ghetto gangbangers fair game.

Weak GDP Report Shows The Madness Of Push For More Spending Cuts

New data released today shows that the U.S. economy unexpectedly shrank in the fourth quarter of 2012. The 0.1 percent contraction is almost entirely attributable to cuts in government spending:

Real federal government consumption expenditures and gross investment decreased 15.0 percent in the fourth quarter, in contrast to an increase of 9.5 percent in the third. National defense decreased 22.2 percent, in contrast to an increase of 12.9 percent. Nondefense increased 1.4 percent, compared with an increase of 3.0 percent. Real state and local government consumption expenditures and gross investment decreased 0.7 percent, in contrast to an increase of 0.3 percent.

The report isn’t as bad as it could have been. Personal expenditures, non-residential investment, and business investment were all up, which is encouraging.

But the economy could be in for another blow in March, when scheduled spending cuts under the so-called “sequester” are set to take effect. And lawmakers seem to have no interest in voiding those cuts. House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) said over the weekend,“I think the sequester is going to happen because that $1.2 trillion in spending cuts, we can’t lose those spending cuts.”

According to Macroeconomic Advisers, the sequester will knock 0.7 percent off of GDP growth this year. The Bipartisan Policy Center estimates that the sequester will kill one million jobs. As Center for American Progress economist Adam Hersh said,“we know what will happen if policymakers don’t work to scrap the sequester and eliminate the useless debt limit policy: We will have slower economic growth and job creation this year and in the future.”

You're pathetic.

Hillary did not become a NY Senator until 2001, after Bill left office!! DUH

As for her being quiet, that's patent bullshit. The Republiclowns hated and attacked her throughout th eClinton Admin. She was far from quiet, which is why she was well known enough to win a Senate Seat in NY.

You are blissfully ignorant.

Had Bush not been a drunk and incompetent, he might have listened to Clinton's intel people.

But he was, and he didn't.

And Bush is the least popular President in history because Americans know what a deunk and loser he is.

The parkway is on Google Maps. Take a look. Marcy Park is several miles down th road from Langley.

But,with your penchant for the BIG LIE, yo'll say anything.

You lose again, Dweeb.

It was the drunk in the White House that destroyed our nation with his drunken rage induced wars, regardless of your lies.

Yet you still can't admit that Bush is an out of control drunk, hiding in Dallas, the hated man of American Politics.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA

You said one thing that was correct, Hillary led the health care fight. After they blew Foster's head off, she shut her mouth and Hillary Care died. The only voice heard after that, other than Clinton's idiocy that caused the 1994 mid-term election disaster for the Democrats, was Jocylin Elders - another absolute idiot.
Foster got his head blown off, and immediately Hillary shuts her mouth and you don't hear another peep from her until the Democrats reward her with the New York Senate seat.
And, even you have to admit that dumping the body at the front gates of the CIA headquarters was just a little too Hollywood dramatic.
You obviously don't know the Parkway very well.

Were my father still alive he'd be rolling over in his grave, blind drunk, cursing horribly, invoking God's wrath which he bore stoically his whole life long. I didn't mind the sexual abuse for mother had told me early on that sex was all men really wanted, but his breath! You should be ashamed of yourself. Consider joining the Marines as your punishment. I hear they like to shower together too.

This morning’s headlines are unexpectedly brought to you by the Commerce Department, and at a glance they bring bad news. According to an advanced estimate by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, GDP actually decreased at a 0.1 percent annual rate in the fourth quarter of 2012, after having increased 3.1 percent in the previous quarter.
That’s not where you’d normally see your first indication of a new recession, but it’s an alarming number nonetheless. On closer inspection, though, the report is actually filled with good news.
Personal income is way up, leading to an increase in both personal savings and consumption. Private sector investment is way up.
All of those gains were swamped by a huge hit to defense spending, which fell 22.2 percent. That’s probably a sour mix of statistical noise, war “savings,” a bit of hoarding by defense contractors ahead of the sequester-induced financial drought, and so on. But it goes to show that pulling federal spending out of the economy can eradicate growth.
That’s not what you’ll take away from today’s report if you’re within earshot of the conservative noise machine, which is treating this report much like they treated jobs reports ahead of the election. Back then, employment growth wasn’t weak because of state and local government job losses, but because Obama. Now, GDP is down because the economy sensed Obama wouldn’t say much about the economy during his inaugural address and preemptively contracted. Or something along those lines.
Not that anyone’s asking me, but that seems like a huge missed strategic opportunity, driven perhaps by the fact that Republicans don’t want to admit lower government spending (austerity) is to blame here. It’s scrambling their brains. It’s making them forget about the rhetorical virtues of military Keynesianism.

Whistling in the dark.

Obama is celebrating measly 1.2% GDP growth for all of 2012.

Welcome to Europe, we are finally there.

This is in some ways a conservative’s dream GDP report. The private sector is humming along in the face of shrinking government. Now, they can’t celebrate that — it makes sense to drape the negative top line number over Obama’s shoulders, and in this particular case the part of government that’s shrinking is the only one the right really cares about.

you did get the last correct.

austerity hasn't helped Europe either.
