Barack Obama, our next President

By the end of this term, the working class will have realized they've been duped, if they haven't already. By then, a third party will seem the only way out. I think something like the "Second Amendment Party" might turn some heads.
1.6 Self-Defense

The only legitimate use of force is in defense of individual rights — life, liberty, and justly acquired property — against aggression. This right inheres in the individual, who may agree to be aided by any other individual or group. We affirm the individual right recognized by the Second Amendment to keep and bear arms, and oppose the prosecution of individuals for exercising their rights of self-defense. We oppose all laws at any level of government requiring registration of, or restricting, the ownership, manufacture, or transfer or sale of firearms or ammunition.

Questionable investment, unless they think European football will take hold in the US.
The NFL should face up to the fact that their game is inherently dangerous, obtain waivers from players, involuntarily retire players with concussion symptoms, and establish funding to address later-life medical problems.
Either that or play flag football, with an audience the size of MSNBC.
Or, Americans could grapple with what appears to be a pathological attachment to pointless violence committed by men? Just playing Devil's advocate here.

Hillary Clinton in 2016: Be Afraid, Republicans
Hillary Clinton stands atop of the Democratic 2016 scrum, set to resume where Bill left off. A second Clinton candidacy would likely put the white vote in play and jeopardize the GOP’s dominance in the Old Confederacy. Recent polls put Hillary ahead of possible Republican challengers in vote-rich Texas and in Kentucky, home of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Tea Party favorite Rand Paul.

2024?
Hillary Clinton appears to have significant health issues, which, combined with her advanced age, make her a less than certain candidate.

The Obamabots will have a surrogate candidate for 2016.

Any doctor should have the freedom to make medical judgments independent of the government or patient "legal advocates." The patient is always free (at least until Obamacare) to find another physician with a different opinion.
Typically the right whines about government giveaways:

The correct answer to getting "a Knee-Joint Replacement or Lung Transplant on a feeble 90 year old" is whether the 90 year old or their family can pay for the procedure themselves. To the delusional right, having to pay for something themselves instead of the government paying for is akin to a death sentence.

Friggin' welfare queens.

Don't know or care if that is Carol, but in fairness to her, the vicious attacks against her by the Chicago scumbag were completely uncalled for.

No. No, at least 3 soldiers and a homosexual have to die in the particular activity or the rules prevent them from noticing.

She's absolutely blind with rage since the election.
The nitwits are still trying to make something out of Benghazi, while they still downplay the 241 Marines got killed in Beirut or the 1,200 dead in Iraq for some stupid failed 'surge' that accomplished nothing.
She has gotten fsr more nasty in her opinions, I was hoping we'd lost her after the multiple Carol's showed up.
But she remains, peddling her ignorance and lies.
She's buddies with DB, and he's the craziest one here. He's never told the truth. Carol slips up and tells the truth on occasion.
Good news is that it's easy to push back against her lies and hatred for her fellow citizens.
<quoted text>
And on and on they go with nonsense they read or hear somewhere in rightwing loon world. The Benghazi consulate sat on a very large semi rural tract of land on Third Ring Road. It would have taken a good ten minutes to drag the body to the road LMAO. There were two nearby hospitals, you can see it all on google earth, the locations are clearly marked___but yet they continue to lie out their azzes.

At the Hillary hearing we learned that the reason for the ambassador's presence in Benghazi that day is classified and can only be divulged via written request__yeah right. So basically the (R's) demand hearings as the Merican people deserve to learn the truth yet scrap the truth in favor of drama.

You'll notice the complete absence of attention paid to the 20 small children riddled with bullets in Connecticut. Where's the outrage? Perhaps, in this case, it's a result of Hillary Clinton's not personally pulling the trigger?

As THE BOY who is still in over his head "begins his second term in office, trust in the federal government remains mired near a historic low, while frustration with government remains high. And for the -----> FIRST TIME,<----- a majority of the public says that the federal government threatens their personal rights and freedoms."

Just sharing what's out there. You decide.
However, this is also out there. Again, you decide.
The Fed’s ongoing bond purchases have helped lower interest rates and pumped newly created money into the economy helping support an economic recovery.
Stocks in Europe had been trading down slightly but moved higher after the U.S. non-farm payrolls figures roughly met market expectations.
Relief rallies on staving off the so-called “fiscal cliff” faded in Europe and the U.S. after the Fed minutes Thursday showed that officials were divided about how long to continue its extraordinary stimulus measures.
So, do you think the Feds printing more money is the solution to this economy?
Or will it devalue the dollar sooner than later?
Serious question.
Serious answer:

I have no doubt that both parties are actively and in concert working towards monetizing the debt, an action that has historically led to financial catastrophes like the '08 crash. That we've only had tiny flirtations with deflation tells me that inflation may only be held at bay by the frigidity of the credit market and that once that market thaws completely inflation will take off. I'd expect it to resemble the 70's only worse.
