Barack Obama, our next President

<quoted text>Wow, according to your ip, you really get around; according to your arguments, you've never left your small town for more than a weekend. Kids don't commit suicide BECAUSE they are gay or straight; they commit suicide BECAUSE of the way they perceive their chances for a full, happy life--bullying, isolation, violence, hopelessness, etc., kills without regard to sexuality. As to your suggestion that other parts of the world discriminate against homosexuals, well, that would be right--they're called Muslim extremists and maybe you and the rest of the Teavangelical Taliban should join up.
What is it with you gay supporters that automatically talk in circles? People have been bullied for years, yet the suicide rate went through the roof once gayism became an American fade. I'm from the hood. Violence is part of that culture, yet suicide isn't part of that culture. Why is that? There are man made laws then there's laws of nature. Without natures laws, we'd be living in times of anarchy. That's what y'all devils advocates are advocating. First gay marriage, then polygamy. Polygamy, then human/animal marriages. There's laws against f cking animals, because it's just not right, but if you allow gays to marry, who are you to tell people they can't have sex & marry animals?

You're from New Jersey. Nothing was rewritten.
For their "civil unions" they took the existing marriage statute, copied word for word, and changed the word "marriage" to "civil union."
What they should have done, and what they will do eventually, is scrap that, and instead take the existing marriage statute and change the words "man" and "woman" to "person" and "person."
P.S. We already feel normal, or we wouldn't be petitioning for legal recognition of our marriages. But your hang-ups are duly noted.
Get ready. You're going to get gay marriage shoved down your throat, and NJ is one of the most likely places it will happen soon. Choke on it.

Mounting Unemployment in America, Hundreds of Thousands Drop out of the Workforce,The US economy added 88,000 jobs in March, far fewer than the previous month and less than half the total economists had predicted, according to the Labor Department’s latest jobs report. The figures point to deepening slump in the United States and the continuing high levels of joblessness, even as the government launches a new round of austerity.

According to the Labor Department’s report, a staggering 496,000 people dropped out of the labor force in March, presumably for the most part because they concluded that work was not available. Perversely, this brought the official unemployment rate—based on the number of people recently and actively looking for work–down to 7.6 percent.

The March figures were the first reported since the beginning of $1.2 trillion in spending cuts, which are being phased in gradually. Some 7,000 government jobs were lost during the month, adding to the more than 700,000 such jobs eliminated since 2008.

While the sequester cuts are only beginning to be felt, over one million federal workers are set to begin furloughs this month. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the sequester cuts are going to result in the equivalent of 750,000 full-time job losses throughout the US economy.The White House responded to the worst jobs figures in almost a year with its typical refrain about a mythical economic recovery, stating that “today’s employment report provides further evidence that the U.S. economy is continuing to recover from the worst downturn since the Great Depression.”

Meanwhile, the number of people applying for unemployment benefits jumped to a four-month high, the US Labor Department said Thursday. The number of people seeking jobless pay rose by 28,000 last week, to 385,000.

But even as more people line up for unemployment insurance, benefits are being slashed. Starting this month, pay to recipients of extended unemployment benefits is being cut back by 11 percent, as a result of the sequester cuts.

The Labor Department also said that the percentage of working-age people who are in the labor force fell to 63.3 percent, the lowest level of the current downturn and the lowest level since 1979, before tens of millions of women entered the workforce.

This is very simple:
What word do we use to show that more than one person owns something? Let's say, a crack pipe.
We would say, "That's OUR crack pipe." Right? "our."
"Our" indicates ownership.
What if you thought it was your crack pipe, because it looks the same as your crack pipe, but it really belongs to the druggie next to you on the corner.
We're still talking about ownership.
Just add one letter: Y.
Your. It is YOUR crack pipe.
***** OUR = We own it. YOUR = you own it.
Likewise: When you are trying to say "you are" (rather than "I is") you just replace the "a" with an apostrophe '
You are a crack head.
You're a crack head.
So here's the easy rule of thumb. If you want to use the word "your" in a sentence, re-read the sentence and replace the word "your" with "you are." If it makes sense, then use "you're." If it doesn't make sense, then use "your."
If you're not smart enough to determine which makes sense, resume using your crack pipe.

American Dream”: Food loaded into Dumpsters while Hundreds of Hungry Americans Restrained by Police,Hundreds of poor people waiting outside of a closed grocery store for the possibility of getting the remaining food is not the picture of the “American Dream.” Yet on March 23, outside the Laney Walker Supermarket in Augusta, Ga., that is exactly what happened.

Residents filled the parking lot with bags and baskets hoping to get some of the baby food, canned goods, noodles and other non-perishables. But a local church never came to pick up the food, as the storeowner prior to the eviction said they had arranged. By the time the people showed up for the food, what was left inside the premises—as with any eviction—came into the ownership of the property holder, SunTrust Bank.

The bank ordered the food to be loaded into dumpsters and hauled to a landfill instead of distributed. The people that gathered had to be restrained by police as they saw perfectly good food destroyed. Local Sheriff Richard Roundtree told the news “a potential for a riot was extremely high.”

“People got children out here that are hungry, thirsty,” local resident Robertstine Lambert told Fox54 in Augusta.“Why throw it away when you could be issuing it out?”

SunTrust bank is trying to confuse the issue and not take direct responsibility for their actions. Their media relations officer Mike McCoy, stated,“We are working with store suppliers as well as law enforcement to dispose of the remaining contents of the store and secure the building.” Yet he also said that the food never belonged to SunTrust Bank.

Most suicides are committed by straight white males. Black males die from being murdered with a gun.
Gays are not animals, they are human beings just like you. That whole bestiality arguement holds no water; it is designed to appeal to the feeble minded and inflame, it works on dummies like you and Carol. Show me one bill that advocates marrying an animal. You can't, because it doesn't exist. Did you like being referred to as subhuman? Akin to an ape?
If a person wants to marry several people, why is it anyones business?
In Switzerland they have removed the anti incest laws. If people are consenting adults, I don't know why it's anyones business.

The central planners in the US and most Western governments have and will decide how much is "enough" for you to have and if you manage to still have significant assets after that, they'll continue to whittle them away via taxation and inflation.

Before Social Security and Medicare existed, the elderly were either completely dependent on their children or were left to beg in the streets. These programs thus remain sacred to the vast majority of Americans. They allow the elderly dignity and independence instead of poverty and insecurity.

Attacking these programs has always been political suicide for the assailant; not even the smoothest talking politician would squirm into an aggressive stance.

But now the gloves are off. Obama and the Democrats are aligning with Republicans to strike the first major blows against Social Security and Medicare. This long hidden agenda is finally in full view of the public. The decades-long political agreement to save these programs is dead, and the foundation of American politics is shifting beneath everyone’s feet.

The New York Times reports:

“President Obama next week will take the political risk of formally proposing cuts to Social Security and Medicare in his annual budget…”

Many liberals are scratching their heads in astonishment, asking “How could this happen?”

The truth is that every liberal and labor leader knew this was in the works for years; they just kept their mouths shut in the hope that Obama could successfully push the blame entirely on the Republicans.

Throughout the summer of 2011 Obama worked with Republicans in the first attempt at a ‘Grand Bargain’ that included cuts to Social Security and Medicare. The Washington Post published an article entitled “Obama’sEvolution” about that summer:

“…the major elements of a [Grand] bargain seemed to be falling into place:$1.2 trillion in [national programs] agency cuts, smaller cost-of-living increases [cuts] for Social Security recipients [cuts by dollar inflation], nearly $250 billion in Medicare savings [cuts] achieved in part by raising the eligibility age [of Medicare]. And $800 billion in new taxes.”

If any presidential candidate made that kind of mistake, a red flag should go up.

Not only did he say he had been in 57 states with 1 more to go but he hadn't even been to Alaska and Hawaii. That makes 60.

No matter how tired you were, wouldn't you hear yourself say 57 states with 1 more to go and correct it immediately?

Imagine if Romney or Bush had said they had been in 57 states with 1 more to go. Heavens to Betsy, it would have been the end of their candidacy. The liberal media would have seen to it.

Who Will Save Social Security and Medicare?
Throughout the summer of 2011 Obama worked with Republicans in the first attempt at a ‘Grand Bargain’ that included cuts to Social Security and Medicare. The Washington Post published an article entitled “Obama’sEvolution” about that summer:

“…the major elements of a [Grand] bargain seemed to be falling into place:$1.2 trillion in [national programs] agency cuts, smaller cost-of-living increases [cuts] for Social Security recipients [cuts by dollar inflation], nearly $250 billion in Medicare savings [cuts] achieved in part by raising the eligibility age [of Medicare]. And $800 billion in new taxes.”

Labor and liberal leaders kept quiet about this so they could push their members to vote for Obama in 2012. They also kept quite in the fall of 2011 when Obama released his budget proposal that included hundreds of billions of dollars worth of cuts to Medicare and Medicaid.

But hiding the most recent betrayal was next to impossible, and every liberal group is now suddenly “shocked” to see Obama officially and publicly on record to pursue the cuts.

The most craven of the liberal groups will continue to spew rotten rhetoric that only blames Republicans for the cuts while making excuses for Obama’s behavior, claiming that he merely buckled under intense Republican pressure and felt the need to “compromise.”

But it’s all nonsense. No working person who votes Republican wants to cut Medicare and Social Security. Obama could have shattered the Republican Party at its kneecaps by broadly exposing their plans to cut Social Security and Medicare. Instead he insisted on co-leading the attack.

These cuts have nothing to do with Obama’s courage or backbone. It’s a matter of political and economic ideology, and the policy that flows from it.

To reverse this policy one cannot make excuses for the president or ignore his “treacherous” behavior. A criminal offensive requires a powerful counterattack. And although labor and liberal groups are reluctant to attack “their” president, the members of these groups share a different perspective.

In an attempt to connect with the rank and file, the president of the AFL-CIO, Richard Trumka, said of Obama’s Social Security cuts:

“These cuts are bad policy. And the only way we’re going to stop them is if President Obama and all members of Congress hear that we’re not going to tolerate them. Sign our petition to the president NOW.”
