Obama thinks we can spend our way out of debt. He thinks the present deficit is sustainable even though it's projected to reach $20 million by the time he leaves office. And he truly believes increasing taxes is the only way to keep wasteful government spending intact and to be our collective nanny.
In other words, he wants us to be like Europe. You haven't figured that out yet though, obviously.
Yes he does.

Characteristic of a Dictator are ‘Charisma/Charm’ The Liberal Press tells us Obama has an abundance of both!! We know whose Obama’s mentor/associates, known communists/ socialists so I’m sure Obama is in support or agrees with the action taken by Cyprus to seize cash from rich!! That’s what Dictators do!!

Oh my goodness! The biggest to date? Does that mean 100 or more angry Cyprusians!!! There's still time for you and new yark to make it and she already has a mustache! bombs don't get lowered, carol, booms do. You know like the thingy that holds the jib up on a yacht? That's probably why the demonstrations have been so lightly attended up until now, they couldn't find enough people to look after their boats while they're gone? What about Benghazi, carol? Who's looking after that place and supervising the construction of the shrine to the fallen American heroes? Oh, the humanity! We seem to have to rob Peter to pay Paul?
Yeah__and where are the Benghazi survivors, why aren't they making the talk show rounds ffs it's been months and we don't even know their names.

Homer has remained consistent on this since Powell went before the U.N. to sell Bush's bs story.
Again, were these democrats lying from 1998 to 2002 when they emphatically declared Saddam was a threat and had to be taken down or were they lying after 2002 when they said Bush lied?

You'll have to get me up to speed on the timeline of lying before I can respond.

One would have to wonder about that if one had any intellectual curiosity. It's been, what, 6 months? I find that very unusual.

Thank you, leosnana. I knew I could count on you.

Guess in my haste, I confused "eminent domain" with "imminent threat" considering what's going on in Cypress - which kind of ties together.

Good news -

Hostess has picked the maker of Little Debbie as the lead bidder to buy its Drake's cakes.

According to a filing in U.S. bankruptcy court, McKee Foods has offered $27.5 million in cash for the cake brands, which include Devil Dogs, Funny Bones and Yodels. The fate of Twinkies and other Hostess cakes are still being negotiated with other bidders.

Earlier this month, Hostess picked Flowers Foods, which makes Tastykake and Nature's Own and Bunny bread, as the lead bidder for six of its major bread brands, including Wonder.

Looks like all our favorites will be making a comeback before too long and of course if anyone eats that crappy Wonder bread.

Probably a good idea. The propagandists won't tell you anything they don't want you to know.
