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

Much is said about class warfare in contemporary America, and there’s justifiable anger at the impoverishment of much of the middle and working classes. The Pew Research Center recently dubbed the 2000s a “lost decade” for middle-income earners — some 85% of Americans in that category feel it’s now more difficult to maintain their standard of living than at the beginning of the millennium, according to a Pew survey.

Blaming a disliked minority — rich business folks — has morphed into a predictable strategy for President Obama’s Democrats, stripped of incumbent success. But all the talk of “one percent” versus “the ninety nine percent” misses new splits developing within both the upper and middle classes.

There is no true solidarity among the rich since no one is yet threatening their status. The “one percent” are splitting their bets. In 2008 President Obama received more Wall Street money than any candidate in history, and he still relies on Wall Street bundlers for his sustenance. For all his class rhetoric, miscreant Wall Streeters, particularly big ones, have evaded big sanctions and the ignominy of jail time.

Obama enjoys great support from the financial interests that benefit from government debt and expansive public largesse. Well-connected people like Obama’s financial tsar on the GM bailout, Steven Rattner, who is also known as a vigorous defender of “too big to fail.”

The “patrician left”— a term that might have amused Marx — extends as well to Silicon Valley, where venture capitalists and techies have opened their wallets wider than ever before for the president. Microsoft and Google are two of Obama’s top three organizational sources of campaign contributions. Valley financiers are not always as selfless as they or their admirers imagine: Many have sought to feed at the Energy Department’s bounteous “green” energy trough and all face regulatory reviews by federal agencies.

Democrats/liberals upset they can't tell people how large a soda they can have so now they are banning sharp utensils - no more knives.

Everyone must eat with "sporks".

OK, I'll give you that. Can't argue with what's In The Windows.
But, there is another option.
It could be "someone" using her Screen Name. Consider that.

IF Not, then don't know what's up with the Jamestown, NY addy.

Majority strongly states she hates "NewYawkshitty".
Why she would choose a NY IP -**And "write" with an awkward
"put-on" New Yawk Couch quite often ... Who knows. Who cares.
But she's far from her beloved KINtucky.**And out of her element.

She also claims she leans left. < I'll need to find that post >.
But still, there is that other option to be considered.
"Another" using her Screen Name; mimicking her strange style.

But, we are not the same poster. Rest assured.

"Fundamentalist Christians" is a much better description than "religious right", given that many are not Conservatives at all. If they were reliable voters, the would be running buses directly from church to the polls, just like the black churches, dragging along everybody in sight.
Fundamentalists have absolutely nothing in common with the Roman Catholic Church except the abortion issue. In all other respects, they detest Roman Catholics. They prefer Black Liberation Protestants over either Catholics or Mormons.
Fundamentalists deserve the bad publicity they receive for taking every word of the Bible literally.
If you ever get rid of the Christian Fundamentalists in the Republican party there will be like 10 of you left.

"The military has stopped production of a new medal for remote warfare troops as it considers complaints from veterans and lawmakers over the award, a government official said Tuesday.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has ordered a review of the Distinguished Warfare Medal, which was to be awarded to troops who operate drones and use other technological skills to fight America's wars from afar. Announcement of the review is expected at a Pentagon news conference later Tuesday."

Defense Secretary Chuck Bagel has ordered a review of the Distinguished Warfare Medal, says should be replaced by Distinguished Liberal Surrender Medal and awarded to liberal that places USA and allies most at risk. Following France and then having Benghazi event earns high points, especially when incompetence exposed.

Buzz around Washington is that left is doing this so Obama can get another Nobel Peace Prize. Hillary a runner up!

GOP Budget Plan Promises To Repeal Obamacare, Cuts Medicaid

WASHINGTON — House Republicans unveiled their latest budget outline on Tuesday, sticking to their plans to try to repeal so-called Obamacare, cut domestic programs ranging from Medicaid to college grants and require future Medicare patients to bear more of the program's cost

The point is to prove it's possible to balance the budget within 10 years by simply cutting spending and avoiding further tax hikes, even though the fiscal blueprint released Tuesday by Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., will be dead on arrival with the White House and Democrats controlling the Senate.

There is a lot of clear evidence, documented science, as well as factually backed so-called theories and seeming speculation regarding the chemtrail program. It is horrifically monstrous and Orwellian at the least. No scientific explanation can possibly justify such an earth and life destroying program. That’s the bottom line.

You know what? the U.S. military is a complete waste of money and I want back what was wasted on the last 5 wars. They start them themselves, lose them, then want to be congratulated for losing. And then paid to become psychotic. Whiney sojur voice, "But, but, I was just following orders..."

Republicans wasting more time instead of coming up with a viable solution to the problem. 4+ years now, same old, same old.
