Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

You can generate revenue for a program by either raising or creating new taxes or reducing costs in other areas & sifting tht avings to help pay for that program.

Revenue generation. A term Bush knew nothing about. He just kept spending & ignoring how to pay for it.

OBAMA THE RICH PEOPLES PRESIDENT THE POOR PEOPLES MYTH the financial elite, which has seen its wealth increase dramatically with the rise of the stock market. This is made possible in large measure by the US Federal Reserve’s vastly expansionary monetary policy, which is throwing $85 billion a year into financial markets and ultimately into the coffers of the super-rich.

The unprecedented combination of mass unemployment, falling wages and an influx of free money from the Federal Reserve has led to a boom in corporate profits, which have set records for three years in a row. In the third quarter of 2012, corporate profits as a percentage of the total economy were 14.2 percent, the highest level on record going back to 1950, while the share of national income that went to workers, 61.7 percent, was at its lowest level in nearly five decades

7 years, you? It's not President Obama who wants to cut medicare, it's Paul Ryan and his merry band of munsters
3-1/2. The GOP wants to "reform" Medicare. That word seems to trip up a lot of you liberal types.

If we keep going down the path of thinking the status quo is acceptable, a lot of people on your side of the fence are in for a rude awakening.

Throughout his tenure, Obama waged war on labor. Perez won’t change things. He’ll replace Hilda Solis. She resigned in January. She accomplished little in four years.

She’s the daughter of immigrant union members. She failed to deliver as promised. She pledged to make a difference and didn’t. Expect little change from Perez. More on him below.

Organized labor in America’s in disarray. In January, union membership reached a near-century low. Only 11.3% of US workers are organized.

Private sector unionization’s down to 6.6%. It’s the lowest percentage in over 100 years. It’s headed perhaps for extinction.

Union bosses bear much responsibility. They side more with management than rank and file members. They conspire against their own.

They abandoned their most effective weapon. They rarely strike. They block collective struggle. They betray promises made.

They’re self-serving. They prioritize their own welfare. They place it above rank and file interests. They’re complicit in supporting the divine right of capital. They’ve been that way for decades.

The UAW reflects organized labor’s decline. At about 380,000, its membership barely exceeds one-third its total eight years ago.

In the 1950s, about 35% of workers were organized. In 1979, it was around 24%. At the end of the Reagan era, it was 16.8%. In 2007, it was 12%. In 2011, it was 11.8%. It continues declining annually.

Obama, other Democrats, Republicans and union bosses conspire. They do so unconscionably. They want workers to live or die by market-based rules. They’re rigged against them. They haven’t got a chance. They’re on their own sink or swim.

CNBC - Drop Coverage or Cut Hours? Big Companies Grapple With Obamacare
http://www.cnbc.com/id/100456557/Drop_Coverag...
I'm curious as to what it's going to take for some people to figure out we're about to get hit by a freight train.
Obama knows:
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt
limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US
Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that,'the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren.
America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans
deserve better."

~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

Funny how the bamster felt when former President Bush was in office.

Little League in Atwood, Illinois is holding a raffle to raise money for new equipment. The prize is a military-style AR-15 rifle — the weapon of choice for Adam Lanza in the Sandy Hook Elementary Hook shooting and James Holmes in the Aurora theater shooting last year.

The assault rifle is from Atwood Armory, which partnered with the Atwood-Hammond Little League to help them improve last year’s dismal fundraising record of ten dollars. Since the raffle launched on Tuesday, the armory has apparently been flooded with calls:

Senate Republicans governing like it's 2011

Sen. Ted "Calgary" Cruz proved his relevance today with an amendment to the continuing resolution bill that will keep the government running after March 27. His amendment? What else. Defunding Obamacare. And he had the bright lights of the Senate GOP caucus with him. Even Mitch McConnell stood up in support of his amendment, along with the "savior" of the GOP Marco Rubio and a number of others.

What was the final vote? It failed, 45-52, and once again Republicans waste a whole lot of time failing to get rid of Obamacare.

And how much time did Ted Cruz waste with this? More than half a day of Senate time that could have been used on other, not irrelevant and not futile, amendments that might have let the Senate actually get around to voting on the bill today or tomorrow. Is this the end to the nihilists waste of time on this bill? Probably not.

RECYCLED NO REAL CHANGE JUST JUGGLING A race to the bottom heads them toward serfdom. In November 2003, the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) offered hope. It went nowhere during Bush’s tenure.

Obama followed suit. He spurned it. In July 2009, he and Senate Democrats agreed to block EFCA’s “card check” provision. They removed it from pending legislation.

It would have required employers to recognize the right to organize once most workers signed union cards freely and openly. Hope for passage died. So did worker rights.

Real unemployment’s at 23%. Economist John Williams called February’s jobs gain and reported unemployment rate “not meaningful.” Numbers are distorted to belie reality.

Economic conditions are deplorable. They’ve been that way for years. Around 25 million working age Americans can’t find jobs.

Millions more involuntarily take low-pay/poor benefit part-time or temp ones. Obama’s a jobs destroyer, not creator.

He’s waging war on America’s social contract. He wants it eliminated altogether. He spurns worker rights. Don’t expect Perez to change things. His resume belies what he’ll do.

He won’t be worker friendly. It’s not his job. He’ll continue same old, same old. He’s mandated to do it. He has no other choice. He’ll perform as asked or be replaced.

He’s an attorney. From 1989 – 2001, he served in the Bush I and Clinton Justice Department

For much of the last decade, the left participated in activism and protests condemning the Bush administration's wars of aggression, and calling for the President's impeachment.

Now that it is a Democrat in the White House, however, these self-same activists are suddenly shying away from impeachment as a way to stop the American war machine.

Find out more about the movement to impeach Obama -- and its opponents in the phoney "anti-war" left -- in this week's

All the while cozying up to his selective 1%'ers.
the wealthy--including politicians and Hollywierd--will pay a fine to not buy insurance and then pay out of pocket for quality, private healthcare without a wait. the rest of Americans will have at best mediocre government issued healthcare, with quality similar to welfare cheese and the efficiency of any government run agency.

The situation is worse than you think, because most union members are now government employees, negotiating with fools who are buying their votes.
