Barack Obama, our next President

"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 ... Full Story

Some of us understand that the cost of doing business increases from time to time and this requires more from the people who benefit from the services rendered by a government which provides those services. Even when cut to "the bone," the government will still have to request more to cover those increases.
The problem with your analysis is that the people who benefit most from government services pay nothing, while those who pay all the bills receive very little in return.

IMO every new law proposed should be attached to the repeal of an existing law.
Yes! It's the local municipal laws and the state laws that are the most absurd. Why do all the newbies think they have to make their mark with some new nonsense? Totally agree, for every new one; eliminate 10!!

There are two things already brewing which will put an end to the fetus-filly fan club.

1. A jet-black Pope.
2. When the Chinee start adopting unwanted American babies.

It's just a matter of time.

Which regulations are you talking about??

Be specific. You appear to be another nitwit who just trots out talking points, without a clue as to what you're talking about.

In that, you're just another right wing moron parroting the lies of the GOP.

Now that you've offered your extremely vague opinion about regulations, please point to specific regulations that you feel inhibit business and should be removed.

Health regulations??

Safety regulations??

Environmental regulations??

Be specific, stop talking through your butt.

I'm sorry but why would you need to go to all the expense of a trial if you were going to execute them? And why, in heaven's name would anyone suggest a trial be run by the military? Oh... I get it. The military IS trying, isn't it.

President Obama's state of the union address: fair enough but forgettableAwkwardly pitched between policy wishlist, stump speech and civic appeal, this failed to cohere as a second-term manifesto
As an agenda, it was impressive. Jobs, immigration reform, climate change, equal pay for women, the minimum wage, troop withdrawal, universal pre-school provision for the poor, gun control, voting reform – this was unapologetic in its liberalism and unstinting in its determination.

"If Congress won't act soon to protect future generations, I will," President Obama said, of the battle to control climate change.

But as a speech, it was lousy. State of the union addresses are supposed to be soaring, rousing, big-picture affairs: thematic in tone and schematic in vision, they give presidents a captive audience to talk not just policy but trajectory – whether it's healing the world, conquering space or reshaping the nation.

But if this was grand in its range, it was small in its vision. A laundry list of good proposals peppered with references to tax codes, research and development, 3D printing and more powerful batteries.

While few progressive stones were left unturned, more than a few were lobbed directly across the aisle.

"The greatest nation on Earth cannot keep conducting its business by drifting from one manufactured crisis to the next," he said, aiming fire at Republicans dancing dangerously close to another fiscal cliff.

"The American people have worked too hard, for too long, rebuilding from one crisis to see their elected officials cause another."

That's not true. The elitist here benefit mightily from the military and Defense Dept (provided by the government) that protects their riches. Big Pharma and the health industry benefit mightily from medicare and medicaid. The petroleum industry benefits mightily from leasing government lands and government subsidies. All of these mentioned and others rip us off to the tune of billions, annually. I could go on but by now, you should get the picture.

Obama's Hunger Games---the new TV show where contestants fight for middle class jobs...fit very well with this.
'The folks at The Washington Post are feeling snubbed by President Obama these days. But they aren’t the only ones, he avoids interviews with print media outlets in favor of television appearances all the time.
“Entertainment Tonight” scored one last year. The New York Times did not.
“The View” has gotten several. The Washington Post hasn’t had one in years.
Albuquerque radio station KOB-FM’s“Morning Mayhem” crew interviewed him in August. The last time the Wall Street Journal did so was in 2009.
America’s newspapers have trouble enough these days, what with shrinking ad revenue and straying readers. But the daily print-and-pixel press also hasn’t gotten much love lately from the biggest newsmaker in the business: President Obama.
When Obama does media interviews these days, it’s not with a newspaper. TV gets the bulk of the president’s personal attention, from his frequent appearances on “60 Minutes” to MTV to chitchats with local stations around the country. Magazines — including the New Republic, which recently landed an interview conducted by its owner, Facebook co-founder and former Obama campaign operative Chris Hughes — are a distant second, followed by radio.
Why would he waste his time with SERIOUS (albeit biased in his favor) news outlets that the uninformed voters don’t bother with? Better to reach the masses with his personal charm and friendly media outlets, as Ed Morrissey pointed out.
Instead of focusing attention on the readership of newspapers, which are more politically attuned and probably in Obama’s camp already, Obama focused on media outlets that catered to the less-engaged and less-informed. That gave him an opportunity to sell his agenda without facing tough questions from politically-engaged and informed reporters, making the sale even easier.
Even his interviews in more traditional outlets came with reporters who aren’t exactly inclined to get tough with Obama. He chose CBS’ Steve Kroft because Kroft wasn’t going to surprise him with tough questions — as Kroft himself admitted to Piers Morgan. Farhi also notes that Obama’s interview in The New Republic, normally a politically sophisticated magazine, was conducted by new publisher and former Obama adviser and volunteer Chris Hughes.(Read More)
Morrissey went on to note that the media outlets continue to let him get away with what I’ calling a Hunger Games strategy. Politics has turned into a complete spectacle. Just look at the upcoming State of the Union address. They bring human props, like Nancy Pelosi inviting a Sandy Hook survivor as a special guest, no doubt to guarantee a little extra TV time. Washington, DC has become the center of the United States economy, as the bureaucrats extracting our money regulate our lives down to the minutia. All the while the people watch the spectacle they put on day in and day out with no inkling that their rights and liberties are being violated on a daily basis. It’s just another reality show.
We’re in a lot of trouble. The Washington Post wonders, Are we in the End Times of Trust in Government?
Oh, yes. But I think we’re also in the End Times of being able... masses.'*
(THE ABOVE WRITTEN BEFORE THE OBAMA JOB HUNGER GAMES HIT THE AIR.)
Golly, Plain Jane the pain again, if you didn't spend so much time googling, cutting and pasting to cover up the fact that you copied erroneous shit from the New York Post to support your claim to have read a book you didn't read, you would not only have time to actually read the trilogy, but also might have learned how to cite properly...perhaps you could start with Wiki of Panem?

You're as ignorant about the Constitution as you are with most other things.

----------

Preamble to the Constitution of the United States

""We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence,[note 1] promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

----------

To further enlighten nitwits like you, here's what the Preamble is for:

"The Preamble to the United States Constitution is a brief introductory statement of the Constitution's fundamental purposes and guiding principles. It states in general terms, and courts have referred to it as reliable evidence of, the Founding Fathers' intentions regarding the Constitution's meaning and what they hoped the Constitution would achieve.""

----------

Meanwhile, you stupidly overlook the fact that the Constitution DOES NOT allow a standing Army, Coast Guard, Air Force.

See Section 8 of the US Constitution, Mr. Expert!!

""To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;

To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years;

To provide and maintain a Navy;

To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces;

To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;""

----------

So the Army is unConstitutional, as you clearly see. Armies can only be raised for a period of 2 years.

And the militia is there to supress insurrections and repel invasions.

Kind of ruins your childish reading of the 2nd Amendment, doesn't it??

People like you are extremely ignorant, but roll out the Constitution as if you've actuallly read it.

You haven't, and I just proved it!!

Next problem for a dropout like you is that you can't comprenend the meaning of the Constitution.
