Barack Obama, our next President

Never stops being amusing when the losers on the left have nothing in the way of a credible reply so they just accuse everyone on the board that doesn't agree with their bent thinking as being the same person.

I know that it will come as a surprise to you simpletons but many in this country do not agree with you or the current administrations position.

Its only 7:30 a.m. and waxturd has used three names already, No Surprise, Jimmy and dem and has awarded himself almost 100 brilliant judge-its. This is a cry for help from a very very very disturbed individual. Won't some of you on the right come to his aid and tell him how sick he is? This lunatic will be shooting up Connecticut if someone doesn't step up.
Don't worry sockpuppet hypocrite. Jimmy is not a Democrat so everyone is safe. When is the funeral for your Democrat buddy who is the most recent Democrat to commit multiple murders with any gun available?

settle down. i know you're not a FOXbot.

look, i'm a fiscal conservative. deficit hawk to be precise. but the data shows that cutting taxes in this economy doesn't add anything to the economy.

so what's driving the deficit? lost revenue. check this....

The money that went “missing” in your paycheck as the payroll tax holiday expired last month helped fuel a $3 billion budget surplus for January.
http://www.bizjournals.com/albany/morning_cal...

and this....

It is a standard talking point of Republicans and deficit hawks of all political stripes that federal spending is out of control; that major surgery is needed, especially on entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare, to get the budget on a sustainable course.

In fact, our long-term deficit situation is not nearly as severe as even many budget experts believe. The problem is that they are looking at recent history and near-term projections that are overly impacted by one-time factors related to the economic crisis and massive Republican tax cuts that lowered revenues far below normal.

Taking a longer-term view, such as that in a recent Treasury Department report, shows that our longer-term fiscal problem is in fact quite manageable.

You are not only the most ignorant person here, you are the biggest liar.
The battle was over 7 hours long. The only reference you mentioned was some meeting at 11:00. The real-time video was being watched in the White House. Where was Obama while the White House watched the real-time video of Al Qaeda killing Americans?
The question remains unanswered.
How about you answer the question. All you have to do is give the location of Obama during the time the White House was watching live Al Qaeda kill Americans.
Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi while the White House watched Al Qaeda kill them on the real-time video feed?
Let's work on your reading and comprehension of the written English language.
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
To answer the question, you have to state "where".
There is nothing in the question about "who" receives the money. Because the verb "pay" is used in the infinitive, you assume whomever receives the money will use it to, as the question specifically identifies, "pay for Obama's government". Who pays is inconsequential. Who handles the money is inconsequential.
The only significant part of the question is "where will the money come from".
To give an idiotic answer like "the Treasury Department" proves your ignorance. You have to identify a source of money, not the repository of the money collected from the source of money.
The Treasury Department is not a source of money, idiot.
So, the question remains unanswered:
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
It's a simple question. All that is required to answer it is to identify a simple source of money that will be collected from to pay for Obama's government.
You idiots do have a goddam plan, don't you? Please don't tell us you clowns don't even have a plan.
Look, Damnably Bad Writer, as long as you continue your miserable existence, the answer to "You are not only the most ignorant person here, you are the biggest liar." will be hotly contested by you, Methmouth, and the Warturds drawer...

Is Marco Rubio Capable of More Than Bromides?

His smoothly delivered State of the Union response showed his major weakness as a speaker: the staleness of his rhetoric.

The problem I have is when they start blowing people away in this country. I think it will get too easy to just kill people rather than arrest, try, and jail people. Slippery slopes are hard to stop once you start sliding.

$3 billion dollars is a lot of money out of people's pockets that need. Money that would have been spent on food, a night out, or repairs. The government need to cut spending and let people keep the money they earn.

<quoted text>Two hillbillies discussing the short and long term consequences of raising the minimum wage, now I have seen everything.
Given that the relative worth of the person has not increased, just why in the hell should anyone be forced to pay more for the same uneducated and unreliable product?

The reason people are working for minimum wage when they are older than 18 is because they are't worth any more than that. If they were worth more, they would be paid more.
I'm for getting rid of the minimum wage entirely. Let a person choose how much they will be worth to the economy, and be paid accordingly.

here's how you increase your income:

Don't drop out of school.
Don't have children before you are married.
Take advantage of the plethora of opportunites to educate yourself.
STUDY SOMETHING USEFUL TO THE ECONOMY.
GET A GODDAM JOB.
Show up for work every day... on goddam time.
Do what you're being paid to do while you are at work.
Become a student of your profession.

If you CHOOSE to do the above, you will not have to rely on a minimum wage to support yourself.

If you CHOOSE to not do the above, you will need a thief like Obama to steal from people who chose to do the above and give it to you.

And, it's never too late. You can change from a useless course to a useful course at any time in your life. However, the sooner you make that change, the greater your reward will be throughout your life... that is, if Obama's Marxist welfare state doesn't take over everything. Then, everything you earn will be needed to support the mooching Obamavilles that will be created everywhere.

Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi while the White House watched Al Qaeda kill them on the real-time video feed?

And;

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Now, tell us how the deficit is related to "lost revenue".

You do know that when any institution has diminished revenue, that institution has to decrease their spending, don't you?

You're an idiot.

Aggregate Demand and State-Level Employment

What explains the sharp decline in U.S. employment from 2007 to 2009? Why has employment remained stubbornly low? Survey data from the National Federation of Independent Businesses show that the decline in state-level employment is strongly correlated with the increase in the percentage of businesses complaining about lack of demand. While business concerns about government regulation and taxes also rose steadily from 2008 to 2011, there is no evidence that job losses were larger in states where businesses were more worried about these factors.

....Figure 3 shows there was almost no correlation between job growth in a state from 2008 to 2011 and the increase in the percentage of businesses citing regulation and taxes as their primary concern. In fact, if anything, the correlation is positive.

States in which businesses increasingly cited regulation and taxes experienced higher job growth, although this correlation is not statistically significant. The lack of correlation is not a matter of the timing we choose. For example, there also is no strong correlation if we examine the 2009–11 period or the 2010–11 period instead.

Figure 4 uses 2012 state unemployment rates instead of job growth from 2008 to 2011. The result is similar. There is no evidence of a positive relationship between 2012 state unemployment rates and the increase in businesses citing regulation and taxes as their primary concern. If anything, the relation is negative.
