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 Chinese are investing only because the US government is subsidizing the sale of their products through tax credits. Drop the tax credits and the sales will evaporate.
Every megawatt of solar or wind power requires a megawatt of backup fossil power. Unless you don't mind freezing in the dark.
Look at it this way: the Jerk-In-Chief wants to pizz billions more down the drain on his Green Boondogles and the Chinese are eating it up like candy.

A Fool and his money are soon parted but, in this case, a Fool is parting us from our money.

I was standing behind a mama and her offspring at a 7-11 in Colorado Springs (not the cheapest place to buy groceries by a long-shot) when mama bought her middle-school aged kid a muffin and juice to go with her coffee and pastry, she paid for it with food stamps.
The kid was wearing a sport jacket, leather, that I could identify as $100+ because I had purchased a similar jacket a few months prior.
A guy at my office has a sweet Harley-Davidson (one that I could never afford) and a hand-held computer with all the bells and whistles. And his kids are among the 25% receiving free/reduced lunches in public schools.
Did you know that according to the Wall Street Journal, 2 years ago over 60% of the "poor" (those qualified for public assistance) in the US had CABLE TV?
Don't back down. Liberals are worthless parasites. They protect their own because they are too damn pathetic and lazy to pay their own way.
Yeah, uh huh. I'm sure a middle school kid would share your fashion sense.
Dumb ass.
Again, spineless wimp, why haven't you had the guts to call out your co worker for gaming the system?

When we were once sane and on the same page about protecting children from child rapists and repeat offenders, a mandatory sentence of 25 years would have been a no brainer.
The only 6 states left who still refuse to protect children now have a glaring spotlight on them.
Also, a few of the Obama media worshippers are starting to break from the pack. Let's hope more follow suit.
How much has NAMBLA contributed to the Boy Messiah's political fund?

Media criticism of this president and journalistic digging to get to the bottom of any suspected wrongdoing on the part of this president is sorely lacking.
In fact, I'd go so far as to say dangerously lacking.
They treat him with kid gloves.
Bush was hammered 24/7 by the media his entire two terms. Yet, the liberal media remains completly silent on Fast and Furious, Benghazi, Obama's contradictory sequester comments, the exploding debt, the Solyndra fiasco and the acceration of the drone program...just to name a few examples.
Surely, you, know this too.
When the FOX hyped manufactured issues rise to the level of Bush's incompetence, get back to us, OK?

Then report the parents, you spineless wimp. Call the parents out on their behavior, and the values they are teaching their children. Rather than be a racist passive aggressive whiner, DO something about it. Remind the parents just WHO is providing that free lunch.
My job was to teach their children. Not confront them about their bad decisions.

My observation did not affect my teaching them either.

The system was just screwed up back then as it is today. Abuses were and still are happening. So what good would it have done anyway?

The reason these abuses are so rampant and take place right under our noses is because there's no way the federal government can keep track of them all.

Yet, the federal government is now going to manage the nation's health care and give even more money to entitlement programs.

It's going to have to get a lot worse before it can start geting better, I'm afraid.

Bullshit. You were biased.
You're a weakling.
Abuses happen because wimps like you are brave on the internet, but spineless in life.
What good would it have done? It would have brought their attention to the values they were teaching their children. It may have made a difference.
I have had those conversations, but then I actually CARE
about my students, and who they grow up to be.

That little girl with the single stuffed toy looked as if she was barely suppressing a giggle fit.
The photographer says in the accompanying article that he learned much from the experience of engaging all of these children from different cultures with affluence or poverty.

First, their pride and excitement are shared universally. Second, those kids with more possessions are less amicable to to the sharing of their toys while those with less are more prone to share theirs.

There were 111 democrats who voted for the Iraq War.

The mayor of New Orleans and the governor of Louisiana neglected their duties to protect their own citizens. The governor delayed giving the federal government permission to send in an armed National Guard to take control of their mistake. Oprah's "aha moment" on national television.

Scooter Libby fell on the sword for the good of the party. Like many other republians. A concept total alien to democrats.

The democrat-controlled congress two years before the collapse and every prominent democrat screaming bloody murder for Bush even suggesting the federal government rein in Fannie and Freddie was in large part what led to the economic collapse.

Now let's talk about current events - Fast and Furious, Senator Menendez, the neverending Afghan War, Benghazi and the use of drones creating a new kind of animosity towards the United States.

Where's the media coverage on these pressing issues?

<quoted text>"Color" has nothing to do with the resentment involved in our government's allowing the massive incursion of foreigners over our border. I would be just as resentful if it was white Russians were invading over that southern border. This country's taxpayers can no longer shoulder the expense of financially supporting every other country's citizens just because they want us to. It's not charity when it's mandatory. I'm a single mom and I am barely scraping by as it is. Now someone else is getting more of my money than ever before. It's time those foreigner parents built up their own assets without sponging off other peoples'.
*Charity* has been redefined and been reassigned. Charity, when taken away from the common citizen and placed into the hands of jerks like the Boy Messiah, is no longer compassionate Charity but raw political power. Thus, Charity has been assigned a whole new definition. Confiscated and commandeered by the Brownshirt Boob, Charity's admonition to give till it hurts has become the Boy Messiah's edict to give or he'll make you hurt.

Not sure the public school policies where you teach.

But if a teacher confronted a parent and admonished them about abusing the system with the liberal politics in the county where I taught, it would have been seen as a major infraction and crossing the line.

Public schools have more liberal politics than common sense. Administrators don't want to make anyone mad. Not even the students.

Your school must be one of the exceptions.

The never ending Afghan War...that's hilarious, almost as funny as you worrying about animosity towards the US.
You've typed all that bullcrap before.
Just type what you REALLY believe
Obama as President ....responsible for everything.
Bush as President...responsible for nothing.

<quoted text>Just as the current administration claims that blacks are incapable of "hate crimes" and therefore will not be prosecuted for committing them, the gays who support him want to have *pedophilia" categorized as a "condition" that is as blameless as "being" whatever race you were born. I suspect the "condition" will only apply to gay pedophiles and not straight ones; Obama being the bigot that he is.
There are whole segments of society that are blameless for their actions because they just happened to be born in the right place in the right time and under this dark regime.

The flip-side of this is that those innocents who once stood firm in the right are now being sacrificed on the altar of expedient change. Make room for Satan. Sounds like something out of Hollywood.

1. You were protected by a union.

Let's go with your reasoning here.
If what you say holds true, then much of the current economic woes have little to do with Obama, but rather the GOP controlled house.
