Barack Obama, our next President

So who is missing what here?

Why can't you say you were standing behind a mother? How do you know that the jacket may have been a gift from his grandparents? How do you know your coworkers children receive free lunch? There is an income requirement that a family must fall under, why do you focus on the poor and dissect everything they have and do? You think poor people shouldn't have tv? Or cars or computers?
You are a sick,covetous loser with too much time on your hands if you are stalking peop,e in 7-11. Get a life.
Have you ever thought that the private jets that Exxon Mobil executives fly are possible because they pay no taxes?
Keep looking at the poor kids jacket or donut you idiot. It's the schtick that they've handed to dummies like you, to keep you busy being hateful to the poor while they are raping this country and laughing at fools like you and Carol and the rest of the merry band of Morans

Please don't tell me you've never heard of that! Anything can be declared Kosher as long as somebody appointed by a Rabbi oversees all aspects of production. With meat, it's making sure that the maximum cruelty is used, and that it is done by hand -- kind of like the muslims do. After all, animals, unlike us, have no feelings or emotions -- don't feel fear, panic, real pain, and all that depressing stuff. So it's okay whatever we do to them. Even the Holy Bible tells us that -- that they're here to do anything humans want with them. Same with the Earth.
I hope I've clarified a few things for you today.
I also want to say, as long as I'm on here -- just to show that I'm fair and even-handed, that I thoroughly disapprove of something that's come to my attention on these forums: That is, my "brothers in arms" seem to be using them as an opportunity for something other than what they were intended, which is the free exchange of political ideas and commentary. Specifically, I think they might be using these halls of learning as a vehicle for "stimulation," that could result in their (and it pains me to say this), "punching the munchkin," "roughing up the suspect," "spending some quality time with a redneck friend," -- if you're getting my drift?
I just want to say, KNOCK IT OFF, BOYS! Because you're really not helping our cause one bit.
Well, I got that off my chest. Don't be upset with me. It's for your own good, after all, as I always told my daughter when I tied her to the bed when she was going through that awful hormonal stuff and sneaking out the window with local boy (or letting them in). God, I'm glad those days are over.
Later again. I'm a little full, guess I overindulged again. If I'm not careful I'm going to tip the scales over those 15 pounds or so that thrown me back into diabetes and weekly labs. Oh dear, as if I don't have enough to worry about ...

so where can i find some kosher chocolate?

and i keep berating the self stimulation crowd to no avail, but you know how such behavior can become addictive when they've been sitting in grandma's basement for the last 5 years tapping away on their 10 year old HP whilst spending half of their time trying, but failing, to pick up pussy on Purrsonals.

Okay Carol let's take these things one at a time.
The purpose of the Boston study was to try and find out why as a group lesbians are more prone to obesity than other groups. Robert Bock of the NIH stated;
"The study on obesity and sexual orientation aims to understand why specific populations are disproportionately affected by obesity and how best to inform prevention and treatment strategies aimed at these populations."
They weren't just studying lesbians for giggles and kicks nitwit.
Your shrimp on a treadmill example also shows how shallow your thought processes are. They weren't just watching shrimp on a treadmill for laughs twit, it was a study done by biologist Lou Burnett of the College of Charleston in South Carolina that studied environmental impacts on many economically important species of seafood. The treadmill study was a small part of the overall research and studied how the shrimp reacted to changes in its environment.
Pottery classes are only a small part of the Moroccan economic grant as is the call center portion of the grant in the Philippines teaching English to students primarily for health care and tourism fields.
All of these programs pale in cost to Medicare part D voted for by both John Boehner and budget genius Paul Ryan which cost taxpayers $32 billion in 2010 and is expected to rise to $150 billion by 2019. Let's not forget the costs of treating our veterans from two wars which are estimated to rise to $8.4 billion by 2020.
I'm still trying to get my head around your defending millions of dollars spent on studying shrimp on treadmills and obese lesbians.

You lost credibility with the rest of your post after that.

Nya, nya NYA -- I stayed up super late last night to get some good ones in, appended with my usual zingy bromide. I think I outdid myself! How about y'all? I got in the part where I was a molder of young minds again too (I mean besides my lumpy daughter's, who, by the way isn't preggers, just put on a few pounds while she's looking for a job again, after getting fired because obviously her FEMALE boss was jealous of her abilities AND the meat on her bones, since she's such a SKINNY MINNIE!). Really, I just got tired of all the school politics, and watching worse teachers than I was get tenure and then the ones sleeping with the administrators were too disgusting to endure. I know, I know, I've been maligned and libeled on here for years, having to fend off scurrilous claims that I've never so much as smelled a teaching degree, that I MIGHT have been some sort of low-level aide, or matron, or back office drudge sorting through parental complaints, verifying absence notes, etc. I think I've been successful in showing that these claims arise from envy and absolutely nothing else, and have no factual basis in reality.
So that's when I became a nurse -- ANOTHER 4 years of school and expense -- just so I could take abuse from hoity toity doctors half my age, and basically have ALL the responsibility and take all the bullcrap! That's when I decided that home typing was my forte after all -- so I went for it. I've been contributing to what I call the "Sucking Society" ever since. In a few months, I'll be sucking up MY just desserts -- and rightfully so!
Anyway, it looks like if us former CONTRIBUTORS wand OUR socialism, we're going to have to take to the streets in greater and greater numbers -- storm the Bastille, if you will, to let these public servants, OUR SERVANTS, know that our will will be done.
But, of course, it's going to get lots worse before it gets better, people. Mark my words. Is there any part of the above that the liberal marxists can seem to understand that I'm missing, or am I just not being crystal clear enough to break through the fog of entitlements? I really wish somebody would answer this question for me, because nobody on EARTH has so far.
Well, I might or might not share other ruminations on topics relating to this whole mess. It all depends on the level of anxiety I can achieve while still attending to my part-time job AND waiting for that joyous call that my daughter is with child, but please Jesus, I pray, not from the black boyfriend. Sometimes girls have to learn the hard way that a huge thing isn't everything, and that playing a guitar isn't the be-all, end-all. Personally, I'm pretty sure he's using her because, number one, she's white; and 2, she's got a secure 7-11 job and on track to be assistant manager.
Whew, that was longer than expected. May be back, and might not. Meantime, please don't be fooled. It makes you look so dumb!

The republicans met the president halfway in his "balanced approach" in January by raising taxes on the wealthy in return for his promise to make specific cuts in the budget which both sides could agree on.

He reneged on that promise, signed the sequestration act so he could blame republicans in anticipation of having a political advantage and now wants to increase taxes again with still no cuts on the table.

It's not so much hateful as exposing the status quo.

Palin just isn't your typical politician or public speaker.

If you can get past her delivery, she actually has something to say.

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.
School lunch programs aren't run by the federal government. Your continued covetous thoughts about the less fortunate are petty and disgusting.

A black Republican said food stamps are reportedly being used for fitness center memberships.

I couldn't find a source backing this up either but sometimes the truth just takes time to emerge into the mainstream.

H.R. 5872 would require the President to submit to Congress a detailed preview of the sequestration required by the Budget Control Act and how the required spending cuts are to be implemented. Specifically, this bill would require the president to submit a report to Congress within 30 days of enactment that includes an estimate of the sequestration percentages and amounts necessary to achieve the required reduction for each spending category.

As the CBO has stated,“the Administration's Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has sole authority to determine whether a sequestration is required and, if so, the proportional allocations of any necessary cuts.”
