Barack Obama, our next President

Students in an Albany High School English class were asked this week as part of a persuasive writing assignment to make an abhorrent argument:“You must argue that Jews are evil, and use solid rationale from government propaganda to convince me of your loyalty to the Third Reich!”

Students were asked to watch and read Nazi propaganda, then pretend their teacher was a Nazi government official who needed to be convinced of their loyalty. In five paragraphs, they were required to prove that Jews were the source of Germany’s problems.

The teacher has since apologized for "the wording".

Yes, definitely, just the wording...

That was the Republicans' message too. Simplify...plus practical and cost free steps to lower the cost of health care.
Democrats liked the 2700 page monstrosity that no one read better.
Pelosi is probably the most surprised. She couldn't wait for all of us to find out what was in it.
The Republicans have no message Carol__they haven't taken any steps to reign in healthcare over the years but only added to the problem with MediCare part D. The Republicans haven't made any attempt to fix-reform immigration since the gigantic Reagan blunder. The Republicans haven't even been able to fix their pet projects, abortion, gun control, simplifying the tax code__wanna talk about the Republican war record?

The plot for 9/11 was underway for 5 years - while Clinton was trying to convince us he did not have sex with that woman and asking a Grand Jury prosecutor what the definition of "is" is.
Just try peeking first - until your eyes become adjusted.
Oh, please. It's irrelevant how long the plot was in the making.

The man on duty has the responsibility of stopping it.

Bush was warned by Tenet and did nothing.

I don’t care how Liberals/Democrats try to Slice/Dice Obamacare it’s a Disaster!!
The result is that the number of Americans projected to gain insurance from the law has already eroded, by at least 5 million people, to 27 million by 2017, the CBO said in February. In addition, as many as 8 million people will lose health-care plans now offered through their employers, almost three times more than the CBO initially projected!!

In January 2011, shortly after Gosnell was charged, Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams told CNN,“It was a house of horrors beyond any type of definition or explanation I can humbly try to give.”

Keeping Them Honest, the question is how did these alleged practices go on with no one stopping it? Tonight you’ll see how the grand jury laid out several oversight failures over two decades.

One glaring example in its report details a former employee of Gosnell who filed a complaint with the State Board of Medicine and exposed “the whole scope of his operation: the unclean, unsterile conditions; the unlicensed workers; the unsupervised sedations; the underage abortion patients; even the over-prescribing of pain pills with high resale value on the street.”

It turns out in 2010, the FBI raided Gosnell’s facility after reports that painkillers were being improperly distributed. But what they allegedly found was much more gruesome.

Anderson Cooper

For two decades the doctor engaged in unsafe practices in his abortion clinic and later it was found that he has cutting the throats of babies who were born alive, but no one from State Health inspected the facility.

A woman died at his clinic from an overdose in pain killers.

Give it a rest, Lily. There has never been a bloc of Republicans against civil rights like the southern democrat bloc - ever - at any time in history.
As long as you realize the Southern Democrats were a totally different creature than Liberal Democrats of the Northeast.

Following Goldwater's anti-Civil Rights speech in 1964, the Southern states began shifting to the Republican camp. By the mid-1980s, it was a solid GOP block.

Are you trying to make the case that those racist attitudes magically disapppeared once they joined the GOP?

Surely you're not that stupid.

As I told Sappy Saphire, the amount of time the plot took is irrelevant.

The man on duty has the responsibility of stopping it.

Bush was warned by Tenet and did nothing.

As for the Bush recession, it was in full swing before Obama took over. 500,000 jobs being lost each month during Bush's final quarter. Banks in crisis and government debt doubled from 5.7 to 11.4 trillion during his two terms.

And you would have us believe Obama came into office with the nation in some kind of economic paradise?

In fact, despite performing illegal late-term abortions, Gosnell's clinic still got no inspections or negative sanctions from the state -- specifically, the Grand Jury report stated, due to pro-choice politics, which demanded that, contrary to the law, no abortion clinic should have any inspections or scrutiny.

So the state looks the other way while a clinic operates unsafely and illegally and this is better than back alley abortions?

<quoted text>NO friend, Obama has a prior history before the presidency of being for gay marriage perversion and he only came out in May 2012, because of North Carolina stance on marriage and $25 million in gay and entertainment donations he was about to lose in one week if he did not come out then. As for the Clinton's, Hilary came out for gay marriage perversion in 2008. Yes, all citizens have equal rights to marriage and your attempt to change that makes you the bigot. Perhaps, you want to stick to the issue instead of name calling. I assume that you are for incest, pedophilia and bestiality allowances in marriages, since your desire is to pervert the meaning of marriages.
Also, you might want to study the facts and issues, instead of repeating gay sound bites. I find it odd that so-called straights profess to support gays but all they do is repeat what gays say, which means that they are being led by gays and incapable of leading their own thoughts.
In case you are wondering, in 2008 and for 5 years now, I have done extensive studying on the issue. I have studies all the arguments that gays have tried to use and all the lies.
For instance, gays know that they are not born gay, the scientific evidence, conducted even by gays proves that, so what gays attempt to do is manipulate the blind masses which is a media trick.
so you lost those 5 years?

it's not like anyone who's sane is going to buy into your 'research'.

Researchers announced today that homosexuality isn’t strictly genetic. But before the homophobes break out their party hats to celebrate this as proof of same-sex attraction being “unnatural,” note that the study in the Quarterly Review of Biology argues that homosexuality is passed from parent to child.

The key here is epi-marks, which control how genes are expressed, and they just might explain the evolutionary stumper of why, if homosexuality is hereditary, it hasn’t been eliminated from the gene pool.

As a press release explains in almost comprehensible terms, the study finds “sex-specific epi-marks, which normally do not pass between generations and are thus ‘erased,’ can lead to homosexuality when they escape erasure and are transmitted from father to daughter or mother to son.”

U.S. News translates that:“A lesbian will almost always get the trait from her father, while a gay man will get the trait from his mother.”

Oh by the way I know exactly how it's going to work and it is nowhere near what you sheeple think it is.
You don't know sh*t.

Yesterday you wondered how the state were going to pay 10% f the subsidies for people to buy insurance when the states don't contribute to that part

You were too uninformed to know the ACA is paid for.

You have no clue how the exchanges save buyers money.

Adding 30 million to the ranks of the insured does not ruin healthcare. What a dumb comment.

The Republicans had from 1993 through 2006 to do something about healthcare.

What did they do about it????????

Not a GD thing.

So if you don't like the way Democrats tackled it blame your buddy right whiners for doing NOTHNG.

Deficit Hawks, Rejoice! We’re in a Golden Age of Deficit Reduction

There’s been no grand bargain. And you’ll never get deficit hawks to admit it. But in four years Obama has presided over a remarkable deficit reduction.

This is the Golden Age of deficit reduction. Really.

You wouldn’t know it if you listen to the professional deficit hawks, who have plowed hundreds of millions of dollars and countless op-eds into a fruitless effort to drive a grand bargain on taxes and spending. But it is. Policy is nobody’s idea of optimal. But nonetheless the gridlock of the past few years has produced spending restraint and higher tax rates. President Obama has proposed more of both in the budget he released on Wednesday. The sequester has just kicked in. And sustained economic growth, the miracle deficit cure, continues to work its magic. The expansion is now in its 46th month.

While the national debt mounts, I’ve noted that the primary deficit—the annual mismatch between revenues and expenditures—is melting away. Check out the March Treasury Monthly Statement, which was released Wednesday. In March 2013, the government collected $186 billion in revenues and spent $292.5 billion, for a deficit of about $106 billion. Pretty bad. But in March 2012, revenues were substantially lower and spending was significantly higher. Then, revenues were $171.2 billion and spending was $369.37 billion, for a deficit of $198 billion. From last March to this March, revenues rose 8 percent while spending fell 21 percent, and the monthly deficit shrank 46 percent.

Now, monthly numbers can move around—if a big tax payment comes in on March 31 one year and arrives on April 1 the next year, or if a benefits payment that went out on March 1, 2012, instead went out on Feb. 28, 2013. So it’s useful to look at the trend. The fiscal year is now six months old. And guess what? It shows more deficit melting. Through the first six months of this fiscal year, revenues are $1.196 trillion, up 12.5 percent from $1.063 trillion in the first six months of fiscal 2012. Meanwhile, the government has spent $1.797 trillion in the first six months of fiscal 2013, down 2.4 percent compared with the first six months of fiscal 2012. The deficit for the first half of the fiscal year is $600.5 billion, down 22.5 percent from $775 billion in the first half of fiscal 2012.

The last six months of the fiscal year are always good ones for the government, as tax payments tend to produce surpluses in April and again in September. Should the current trends continue for the rest of the year, we’ll be looking at an annual deficit of about $850 billion for fiscal year 2013, down from $1.089 trillion in fiscal 2012.(The Obama administration projects a $972 billion deficit for the current fiscal year, but it will surely be less than that.) Put another way, that’s $240 billion in deficit reduction in a single fiscal year—in the absence of a grand bargain. The reduction is even more impressive when you consider that in fiscal 2009, the deficit was more than $1.4 trillion. It’s hard to envision a time in recent history when the deficit has shrunk so much in dollar terms in the space of four years.

Is this what I'm hearing from these loony libtards? 9/11 was 8 months into Bush's term so it's his fault but Obama has been in office over 4 years and the economy is Bush's fault. Libtards are SO stupid!!! The economy would better off if Obama did nothing. In fact I'm sure his policies and Obamcare are responsible for making it worse. With more to come.
