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

The sequester will cut $85 billion in government spending from March 1 to September 30. It is a 5% cut for most federal spending, but because the fiscal year began on October 1, 2012, five months have already passed and thus the one year cut is jammed into 7 months. Some agencies, like those providing unemployment benefits have been unable to prepare so there are likely to be 10% or so cuts in checks to the unemployed. Other agencies have been able to prepare somewhat by not filling vacancies and taking other budgetary actions since last October. And others, which give out grants for research, will be giving out fewer funds in grants. How the sequester will impact agencies will vary from program to program.

It will also vary from state to state. States like, Virginia, New Mexico, Alabama and South Carolina, with high federal spending will face more severe cutbacks, while states like, New York, Ohio, Illinois and Oregon, with less federal spending will face less. But there will be budgetary pain all across the nationin health care, housing, education, security and immigration, among others.

Hello, Stupid.
For the 3rd time, the orders which sent the Japanese-Americans to internment came from the General DeWitt on May 3rd, 1942.
There is NOTHING in Roosevelt's two executive orders which parallel DeWitt's. So you're busted.
You've got nothing, but lack of facts has never stopped a GOP fatmouth from going BAH HAH HAH HAH and proclaiming himself the "victor".
Face it, you GOP clowns are woefully ignorant on matters of history.
You're such a moron, you didn't even know "the shot heard round the world" is a reference to the battle of Lexington which is where the American Revolution began.
Fckn dufus.
You've been caught with your pants down and you have nothing to show us. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Right. The entire Japanese American internment mistake was caused by one errant racist General that FDR never noticed was trashing American citizens' rights. And, all the while, the Citizen Police Force (also created by FDR) that ran those racist camps for the racist General was never admonished nor even noticed by FDR.

Hee, Hee.

Go back to sleep, Dood. The bartender will wake you up when the janitor comes in.

Psst, Hey! You Wanna Buy A Low Cost LED BULB?

I heard the co-owner on the radio the other day talking about these. Apparently the 40 and 60 watt bulb equivalent can not be distinguished from an incandescent bulb.

A qualification which means nothing.
All high school students are taught "the shot heard round the world" is a reference to the Battle of Lexington which began the American Revolution.
Conversely, in high school history, there is NO OTHER incident which is described as "the shot heard round the world".
You fool no one, GOP clown. You don't know your own country's history.
Uneducated pissant.

Yet another lie.
Holder said he would allow the possibility that in a case of another event such as Pearl Harbor or 9-11 then it might be possible to use an armed drone against a US citizen.
Besides next year the NRA will push for private armed drone ownership & rednecks will be setting up private compounds where the fat asses can hunt hand fed deer with drones while watching NASCAR & drinking beer & eating BBQ.
"real dumb"
If a republican was suggesting using drones to off American citizens with no due process you would be crapping your pants. When a democrat suggests the same you are all for it. You are afucking hypocrite.
Not a big fan of NASCAR, admire the drivers athletic ability, but much prefer watching basketball, the Zags in particular, ranked #1, with some BBQ and a nice cold Kokanee.

House Speaker John Boehner responds to the Obama administration's decision to cancel White House tours in order to comply with sequester-mandated spending cuts:

The President is trying to make it tough on members of Congress. It's just sick. I want to know who is being laid off at the White House.

So there you have it: The official position of House Republicans is that it would be better to lay off more workers than to cancel White House tours, because canceling White House tours makes it "tough" on members of Congress. Don't you feel sorry for them? I mean, it must be awful for them to have to call up campaign contributors who requested White House tour tickets and tell them that the tours have been cancelled because of the sequester—the sequester that they created.

If only there were something House Republicans could have done to avoided this great tragedy. You know, something like being willing to replace the sequester with something more reasonable. But they couldn't bring themselves to do that, and now we're stuck with the sequester ... and now that we're stuck with the sequester, the only thing they seem to be upset about is the one thing that impacts them on a personal level. As far as they're concerned, the hundreds of thousands of Americans that their fiscal policies are putting out of work can go take a hike.
