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 ...

Sure Carol, you'd much rather a bunch of pencil pushers in underwriting determine what you get for healthcare based on corporate profits and not on what your doctors feels you need.
You're an idiot Carol!
How do you arrive at that disjointed conclusion, idiot?

DOH! You are a libtard. Of course!

Homosexual, idiot, criminal, deviant, pervert, pedophile, democrat, an ignorant bigot and racist like RealDave.

Crunching the Numbers: Obama

More taxes...

The USA has elected a moron...
Democrats are morons...
You can't just keep spending when you don't have the money, morons.
From an article on the US Postal Service-

An independent agency, the service gets no tax dollars for its day-to-day operations but is subject to congressional control. Many analysts lament that it has to manage 500,000 employees, a fleet of 212,000 vehicles and thousands of pieces of automated equipment but is not allowed to make what they say are typical business decisions.

"Congress should give the agency authority it needs to act like a real business," says Geddes, the Cornell professor, meaning respond to customer demand by controlling prices and adjusting levels of service when needed.
-----

One steadfast American institution of WORK, still independently contributing to the future healthcare of its employees, while Americas tax dollars bail out FAIL outs.

Why do political "jobs" pay more than the USPS?

Tho it's none of my business who dates who, we as a society need to ask ourselves, is it worth shredding the fabric in which this country was founded on? The answer to that question is no! It's not about whether a person is gay or not.

LORD OBAMA NOT THE ANSWER wrote:
Why Government is Not the Answer
By S. Michael Houdmann, Got Questions Ministries
John Adams, the second President of the United States, said, "We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
Did you catch that? "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people." That is the reason the United States and many other countries in the world are in such terrible shape. Our world is becoming increasingly godless. While the vast majority of people in the world believe in the existence of God, an increasing majority live their lives as if God does not exist. While the same principles apply to other nations, for the rest of this article, we will be discussing the United States specifically.
I have no desire to ever run for political office. There are many ancillary reasons, but at the core I firmly believe that government is not the answer. There is no perfect government, because every government is filled with imperfect people. And while I believe the United States has (or had) the best government in the history of the world, it is failing due to precisely what John Adams declared. Our government is wholly inadequate to govern immoral, ungodly, and selfish people.
None of the political parties understand this. None of them seem to understand the Christian worldview of just how wretchedly sinful humanity is without Christ (Jeremiah 17:9; Romans 1:18-32; 3:10-23). Is there a more apt description of modern non-Christian society than Genesis 6:5? "The LORD saw how great man's wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time."
Take the financial collapse of 2008 as an example. Of course the cause was multi-faceted, but it was essentially caused by banks taking exorbitant risks on loans. The source of it all, ultimately, was greed. The Democratic solution is to add hundreds of new regulations. The Republican solution is to tweak the existing regulations. The Libertarian solution is to get rid of virtually all regulations. None of those solutions are truly solutions to anything. The problem is greed. It does not matter how many laws you create. Evil and greedy people will find ways around the laws or find lawyers to rescue them after they break the laws. Creating laws, tweaking laws, or removing laws will never solve the problem of greed. Greed is a result of all of us being infected with sin (Matthew 6:19-24; Luke 12:15; Ephesians 5:5; 1 Timothy 6:9-10; Hebrews 13:5). Government cannot cure it. Only Jesus Christ can deliver us from it!
Good article!

Beginning in the year 1789, members of the United States Congress earned $6 per day as a salary. In 1825, they got a raise to $8 per day.

If leadership as an example is ethically defining, Hollywierd and politics should have a COLA reduction.

Especially when the "party" can carry on in the East room of We the Peoples building of American business. Bucks to party on? Shore up a BUDGET that doesn't break America for more generations into bankruptsy and Pay the bills!

Why do we even WASTE time on such BS (except for educating our kids on how NOT to act like animals in heat, breeding that which they cannot even take care of) when we should be educating them to be functioning, contributing members of society, rather than parasites of?

Maybe RealDave's brain has been washed one, two, three, many times...

RealDave forever enslaved to his own ignorance, "born with deranged behavior".. living his failed miserable lifestyle... Or maybe it could be his old age or the bleach that has absorbed into his retarded head or tattoo ink leaching into RealDave's brain, that's making his deranged behavior or common sense fade...

Minimum wage should be raised in certain instances and deductions should be capped (specifically Fortune 500 companies and their spin offs)

Co-workers have sex all the time. Sometimes between different management levels.
Tell me again why the Republicans were asking Clinton about this?? Were they jealous?
Newt Gingrich led the charge to get Clinton when he was having an affair himself. Once he had his Chauffeur take his 5 year old daughter for a walk while he " shoved his meat" down the throat of his girlfriend. How many of you right whiners voted for him in he past?
Heck, you voted for John McCain who dumped his wife who waited for him to return from war in order to marry a rich b*tch.
and then on rare occassion, Duh A Vey makes some sense out of reality lol.

They need to get rid of the federal minimum wage.
It for sure is way too high.
The minimum wage serves no purpose except to just screw things up,
and used as a wedge issue and buy votes.

While homosexuals vehemently reject being considered mentally ill, RealDave has no problems regarding those who dislike criminals or homosexual behavior as mentally ill.. The next thing homosexuals and criminals will want, their deranged behavior to be called normal..

Tea party titan Rand Paul, visiting Howard University on Wednesday, told students that he had been called “either brave or crazy to be here” at the historically black college.

Probably some of each: brave, because he’s trying to sell himself and fellow Republicans to African Americans, a singularly resistant demographic; and crazy, because he based his pitch on revised history and airbrushed facts — and the Howard kids weren’t fooled.

First Thoughts: Rand Paul’s Howard Speech

....What was missing?— Towards the end of the speech I had this interview with MBD in mind:

Most conservatives like to think that they have principles that are color-blind: the eternal verities and such. I think this is a kind of self-flattery that excuses historical ignorance on our part. Enslavement stripped Africans of their ethnicities, their languages, and their religion. That means more than any one other group in this country African-Americans are a people created by the history of our nation and its politics: commerce, slavery, the Civil War, emancipation, the civil rights movement. It is a naïveté bordering on psychosis to suggest that black politics should conform to some imagined color-blind set of principles. Just junk that and start reaching out into the black community. I sense a real hunger on their part for political competition for their vote and support.

There is an absolutely electrifying intellectual tradition of black self-sufficiency and independence that is a good fit within a big-tent conservatism. And it is larger than Booker T. Washington. Zora Neal Hurston endorsed Robert Taft in the 1950s. Malcolm X was in many ways both more radical than King and more conservative too. This tradition is not at all color-blind, but it is localist, communitarian, religious (Muslim and Christian), and entrepreneurial. I also think conservatives should start political discussions on our drug war, on prison reform, and on policing that can and should help us re-connect with African Americans.

Senator Paul mostly avoided the tone-deafness of the sort Dougherty describes in the first paragraph, and he absolutely deserves credit for taking up some of those criminal justice reforms. But if Paul had framed his argument in terms of the consonance between conservative values and the black intellectual tradition instead of the GOP’s civil rights history, which is largely irrelevant today, I have a feeling he might have received a less tepid response. Of course it’s not his tradition to interpret, but he could have made the point gracefully.
