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

I was at my bank today; there was a short line.

There was just one lady in front of me, an Asian lady who was trying to exchange yen for dollars.

It was obvious she was a little irritated ...

She asked the teller, "Why it change?

Yesterday, I get two hunat dollafo yen.

Today I only get hunat eighty? Why it change?"

The teller shrugged his shoulders and said, "Fluctuations."

The Asian lady says, "Fluc you white people too"

First off, let me say $9 trillion over a 40yr span is a joke. If everyone were serious about putting a dent in poverty it would take immediate action, not something done over time. Inject $9 trillion in thus year & get immediate results. 2nd, welcome to the 2000s. Nobody has to make a pact, it up to each individual to create their own destiny. When both parents are forced to work, children wind up having too much time on their hands. The result is children making childish mistakes. You can't blame Americas short coming on one thing. It's a mixture of things that makes shit so frustrated!

BS

Akin won a contested primary because he dominated the born-again Christian vote.

Akin then substituted Bible teaching for biological reality and lost an election that any other Republican would have won easily.

One has exactly nothing to do with the other__ a beyond stupid comparison.

Zimmerman goes on trial this summer and a jury will decide his fate, his wife also faces charges for perjury. If Zimmerman had shot the unarmed teen in some states he would already be serving time.

Dumb carol doesn't make the connection to the attire to do a "Wham" song...now if they were only doing something from Liberace or Lawrence Welk she might have gotten it...or not.(You didn't notice the short shorts either?)

America desperately needs more George Zimmermans and fewer Trayvon Martins.

We'd probably both be surprised at how many on the left share Akin's substituting "Bible teaching" for "biological reality" but the liberal media only cares about demonizing the right.

He made the mistake of using the word "legitimate" when talking about rape. Yes, it was a stupid thing to say. But he corrected it immediately and admitted he was wrong.

When liberals say something stupid or choose the wrong words, it's completely ignored and overlooked. Much less an apology forthcoming.

We all know it.

That and that cigarettes cost $5.00 per pack and more.

In my day smokes were a quarter a pack and were advertised everywhere, even billed as healthy/recommended by doctors yada-yada. Everyone in the movies smoked and even Mickey Mantle was a tobacco spokes person. Will add that fkrs in the movies and on TV were constantly shooting and/or beating the tar out of one another and in particular those pesky Injuns.

The good old days LMAO.

DEMOCRAT Senate Majority leader Harry Reid is an example of how low you can go in politics. Blaming the death of the marines during a training exercise on the sequester is ridiculous.

The is the same moron that called Obama a light skinned negro.

Clearly, abstinence does work for some, both male and female.

For others, birth control is too difficult. Taking a pill every day is just too much work.

Perhaps in-school abortion clinics are the answer so that missed class time is minimized. Just substitute for gym class.

"Raging hormones" is a sad commentary indicating breeders rather than thinking people.

Because a lot of people don't get Mormonism. It's out of the mainstream of traditional religions and didn't pop up until 1820, not distinguishing itself until the 1830s and 1840s, compared to traditional religions having been around for several centuries.

We've become too accustomed to walking on eggshells. The PC police now tell us what is good and what is bad, what we can and can't say, and we obediently follow orders.

The new no-no is sugary drinks.

Public service advertisements are much more effective in changing attitudes than being punished by the government.
