Bruised from Battling Obama, Eric Cantor Softens His Tone in Domestic Policy Speech
Eric Cantor is acutely aware that the GOP has an image problem.
For the past year-and-a-half, the House majority leader and his colleagues have been manning the barricades of negativity: "No" to Obamacare. "No" to immigration reform. "No" to gun control. "No" to higher taxes on the wealthy. "No" to just about anything the White House wants.
Now Cantor is trying to soften his hard-edged reputation, portraying the Republican Party as caring deeply about education, health care and innovation.

"No" won't win elections.
LOL... image problem?
Mass killings by deranged Democrats or Chicago ghetto style killings from the culture of violence are not by someone clinging to their guns and religion.
You still have not told us why the ghettos and projects are magnets for blacks??

Race to the Top” is Racist

Hundreds of Black and brown parents, students and activists descended on Washington to protest thousands of school closings under President Obama’s Race to the Top program.“For the first time you have parents uniting, communities uniting, students uniting in challenging these policies and calling them racist,” said journalist Jaisal Noor. The protestors denounced preferential treatment of charter schools, and called for a national moratorium on school closings.

NYC had headlines last week that at first appeared awful: the NYPD arrested a 7 year old on assault charges. the baby momma breeder is now suing for $250 million. after the lib cries died down though, the thug-in-trainings victims came forward. this is a future resident of Attica in the making. hopefully, the baby mama doesn't collect a dime, but if she does--the victims of her bad decision making should counter sue.

It's not surprising that an authoritarian personality type like yourself thinks that the the police should be involved in schoolroom problems that should be solved by the teachers and the principle.
This is the NRAs dream; the pipeline from school to prison. This is fueled by private prison contributions to politicians. That's who elected our Governor Rick Scott.

Ras Baraka for Mayor of Newark

“We need to fight for living wage jobs,” said Ras Baraka, a high school principal, son of poet and activist Amiri Baraka, and candidate for mayor of Newark, New Jersey. Current mayor Cory Booker, a darling of the media and corporations, has his sights set on a U.S. Senate seat. Booker “either didn’t care about our problems from the beginning,” said Baraka,“or he faced our problems and realized it was too heavy form him to deal with and carry out his own, personal agenda at the same time.”

To stop the use of the government as a weapon, Americans needs to reduce the government to 1 tenth of what it is now. To stop are enemy’s from using the government to swindle and plunder, we need to remove that power. We need to stop the legislation from being use to legalize plunder. We need to stop law from stealing from Americans that which belongs to them, and, given to those who it does not belong to. This act, if perform by any individual would be a crime. This action perform by the mafia is a crime. We need to abolish these laws and the power to make them without delay.
This organizing of legalized plunder, is powered be the delusion of the day when all class will be enriched, at the expense of freedom and each other. It is the organization of tariffs, protection, perquisites, progressive taxes, free public education, right to wages, right to assistance, right to labor etc. Hence, the infinite multitude of plans for legalized plunder. All these plans, taken as a whole with what they have in common, they are Socializes Communism. The enemy and slave master of all free people.

EEOC Dismisses Black Cases En Masse

A recent report from the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission claims the agency has reduced its backlog of to 70,000 cases. However, Ricardo Jones, the former chief investigator for the New York district of the EEOC, says the agency is doing a worse job than under President George Bush. Any reduction in backlog is due to wrongful dismissal of racial discrimination complaints, said Jones.“The statistics clearly show that.”

Seriously, everyone should stop answering that rainman; he's been asking the same question for weeks. Just like that moran in KY who is still asking what we're doingin Libya. Ignore it.

Has it occured to anyone that since President Obama has been President that there have been no new residents added to Guantanamo?

The Carving-Up of Africa Has Begun

Dr. Francis Boyle, renowned professor of international law (University of Illinois, Champaign), says the 2011 “Libya attack was designed to allow the U.S. and NATO to project power southward into Africa,” and led directly to western military intervention in Mali.“What we are seeing is a new ‘Berlin Conference’ carve-up of Africa, to loot and plunder its natural resources,” said Boyle, whose new book is titled Destroying Libya and World Order.

YEA LIBS ARE THE EQUALIZER lololololhahahahaha For the masses of Black people, progress against job discrimination ground to halt decades ago. Even at the supervisory level, apartheid is the order of the day.“Black men and women are rarely hired to supervise white people.

Justice Department Leaks Memo “Legalizing” Murdering Americans
And why not? Either there’s a whistleblower in the Department of So-Called Justice about to be charged with espionage, and NBC is about to face the same persecution as WikiLeaks, or this is one of those “good” leaks that the White House wanted made public in an underhanded manner — perhaps as an imagined boost to morality-challenged CIA director nominee John Brennan who faces his Senate Rejection Hearing on Thursday.

The memo, which is thought to be a summary of a longer one, says the United States can murder a U.S. citizen abroad (abroad but somehow “outside the area of active hostilities” even though killing him or her seems rather active and hostile) if three conditions are met:

“1. an informed, high-level official of the U.S. government has determined that the targeted individual poses an imminent threat of violent attack against the United States;”

The memo goes on to base its claims on the supposed powers of the President, not of some random official. Who is such an official? Who decides whether he or she is informed? What if two of them disagree? What if he or she disagrees with the President? or the Congress? or the Supreme Court? or the U.S. public? or the United Nations? or the International Criminal Court? What then? One solution is to redefine the terms so that everyone has to agree.“Imminent” is defined in this memo to mean nothing at all.“The United States” clearly means anywhere U.S. troops may be.

“2. capture is infeasible, and the United States continues to monitor whether capture becomes feasible;”

And if a high-level official claims it’s infeasible, who can challenge that?

“3. the operation would be conducted in a manner consistent with applicable law of war principles.”

When a U.S. drone strike killed Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan, no one had shown either of them to meet the above qualifications.

When a U.S. drone strike targeted and killed 16-year-old Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, no one had shown him to meet the above qualifications; I don’t think anyone has made such a claim to this day. And what about his cousin who died for the crime of being with him at the wrong time?

The sociopaths who wrote this memo have “legalized” the drone-killing of Americans with the exception of all the Americans known thus far to have been murdered by our government with the use of drones.

<quoted text>You don't think that the FACT of Trickle Down has anything to do with the average pay of CEOs 30 years ago was 23 times that of the worker and today it's almost 300 times more? You think someone working in a factory said shut this place down and move it to China so the owners can pay .30 cents an hour to slave girls? Your concept of everyone in America should have a PhD would rule out America ever having a middle class. And it is the middle class that made America. Reagan started the process of ending it.
If you want to get that kind of money, become a CEO. Or, you can use the traditional American economic system and start your own company.
Even if you don't have the gumption to start your own company, and you don't have the talent required to become a CEO, and you didn't take advantage of the education opportunites available to every goddam person in the entire country, you still can earn a very nice middle-class living that includes a house, a pickup truck for you, a car for your wife, new clothes for your kids, a four-wheeler, a bass boat, a set of golf clubs, vacations to Yellowstone, Bar-B-Q Super Bowl party for your friends, and some money left over for food and beer.
All you have to do to get this is just GET A F**K*NG JOB, show up for work every day... on time, do what you're paid to do, and be a student of your profession.
If you can't find a job, there are 30 million illegal aliens doing the work Obama is paying his base to not do. Take one of those jobs.
Here's the deal....

Obamacare: A Deception
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, commonly referred to as the ACA or Obamacare
Obamacare works for the insurance companies but not for you.
Obamacare was formulated on the concept of health care as a commercial commodity and was cloaked in ideological slogans such as “shared responsibility,”“no free riders” and “ownership society.” These slogans dress the insurance industry’s raid on public resources in the cloak of a “free market” health care system.
You will learn how to purchase a subsidized plan at the Exchange, what will happen when income and family circumstances change during the year or from one year to the next, and other perils brought to you by Obamacare. It is one of the most important articles that will be posted on my website this year. Americans will be shocked to learn the extent to which they have been deceived. The legislation neither protects the patient nor are the plans affordable.
The author shows that for those Americans whose income places them between 138% and 400% of the Federal Poverty Level, the out-of-pocket cost for one of the least expensive (lower coverage) subsidized policies ranges from 2% to 9.5% of Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI), a tax base larger than the Adjusted Gross Income used for calculating federal income tax.
What this means is that those Americans with the least or no disposable income are faced in effect with a substantial pay cut. The author provides an example of a 35 year-old with a MAGI of $27,925. The out-of- pocket cost to this person of a Silver level plan (second least expensive) is $187.33 per month. This cost is based on pre-tax income, that is, before income is reduced by payroll and income taxes. There goes the car payment or utility bill. The lives of millions of Americans will change drastically as they struggle with a new, large expense – particularly in an era of no jobs, low-paying jobs and rising cost of living.
The author also points out that the cost of using the mandated policies will be prohibitive because of the large deductibles and co-pays. Many Americans will find themselves not only with a policy they can’t afford, but also with one they cannot afford to use. Those who cannot afford the insurance, even with a subsidy, will be faced with a costly penalty, and in many cases, this, too, will be difficult, if not impossible, to pay. As each year’s subsidy is based on last year’s income, there will be a substantial year-end tax liability for those who must repay the subsidy in whole or part because their income increased during the year. The stress alone from such a regressive scheme is, without a doubt, not conducive to good health and well-being.
Diets will worsen for millions of Americans as they struggle with a new large expense. Thus, the effect of Obamacare will be to worsen the health of millions. Indeed, a “glitch” in the legislation allows millions to be priced out of coverage.
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/30/obam...
Alternatively, Americans might be able to acquire health insurance coverage but have no doctors willing to treat them.
http://www.safetyweb.org/fpl.php [2]
The ACA requires use of MODIFIED ADJUSTED GROSS INCOME (MAGI) instead of Adjusted Gross Income for all determinations made by an Exchange including eligibility for Medicaid except in certain cases. So, in this lesson, we’ll refer to annual income as MAGI.
Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) is defined as Adjusted Gross
