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 ...

Life Should Be Better wrote:
An
emergency room physician told me that a woman in
her late 20's came to the ER today with her
8th pregnancy.
She told
the first doctor she saw: "My Mama told me that
I am the
breadwinner for the family. " He asked
her to explain. She said that she can make
babies ~ and babies get money from the State for
the family. It goes like this:
The Grandma calls the Department of Child &
Family Services, and states that the unemployed
daughter is not capable of caring for all of her
kids.
DCFS agrees, and tells her the
children will need to go into foster care.
The Grandma then
volunteers to be the foster
parent, and receives a check for
$1500 per child each month in
Illinois .
Total yearly income:
$144,000
tax-free and nobody
has to go to work!
In
fact, they get more if there is
no
husband/father/man in the home!
Not
to mention free healthcare (Medicaid), plus a
monthly card entitling them to free groceries
and a voucher for 250 free Obamaphone minutes
each month. This does not include WIC and other
welfare benefits...that they are "entitled" to.
Indeed, Grandma
was correct that her fertile daughter is the
"breadwinner" for the family.
This is how the liberal
politicians spend our tax dollars. When this
generous program was invented in the '60s, the
Great Society architects forgot to craft
an end date...
Nice piece of fiction, you moran.
Look it up, the maximum any foster parent will receive is about $375 per month.
The Obamaphone is actually the Reagan phone
Welfare payments are limited to a maximum lifetime benfit of 5 years.
If you are receiving foster payments, then you do not qualify for food stamps.
Stay stupid.
Texas...the most uninsured residents of any state, and the lowest wages.

BOSTON: WHY did Michelle Obama go to the hospital to visit the Saudi held in custody -- Saudi news site Okaz.com reported that Michelle Obama visited two Saudi nationals in a Boston hospital on Thursday, one of them being Abdul al-Harbi, who was under investigation as a person of interest in the Boston Marathon terrorist attack.

Anyone can log in with multiple renewal IP numbers and spamming the Topix Judge Icons for the replies to his post... Possibly... but doubtful.. running multiple copies of my browser, which will log in with multiple renewal IP numbers and spamming the Topix Judge Icons for the replies to the post... It can also be accomplished by using different browsers logged into the same thread with multple sessions... on the same internet connection...

Every browser connection or session is an ip connection. If you bring up twenty browser sessions, you can judge the Icons 20 times... This Multiple Judging icon can accomplished by having 2 internet accounts in your home and acting as if you are 2 people judging the topix judge icons...

It can also be accomplished by using different browsers logged into the same thread... on the same internet connection... Every browser connection is an ip connection. If you bring up ten browser processes, you can judge the Icons 10 times...------- You can change ip numbers if you know how... You can also reset your internet modem box and it will DNS or resolve a new ip number... However that is not necessary. The way it works is to bring up multiple copies of your browser on the same thread and page and do the judging.. That's all that is required and wait depending on you network connection and topix server to record the vote and for the judging to take... I have done it and it can take up to 5 minutes on mine, maybe others different...

He rid the world of a clear and present danger after 9/11.

Democrats refused to rein in Fannie and Freddie. It was the catalyst which caused the house of cards to fall. GW Bush tried to warn Congress in the years leading up to it.

So if he tried to warn them and they refused to listen, why is it his fault and not theirs?

Was the American Dream Downpayment Assistance Act of 2003 George W's way of warning congress. Was the Bush administration's chipping away at oversight another warning. The correct info has been explained to you dozens of times Carol and you continue to ignore it in favor of the right wing slop you find more in line with your mystical ideology.

Have you figured out why Angelo Mozilo is on the list of those most responsible for the mortgage meltdown and Bawney Frank is not?

Aunt Bettie Lou, More of your deluded revisionist rubbish . "GW Bush tried to warn Congress in the years leading up to it.

So if he tried to warn them and they refused to listen, why is it his fault and not theirs? " 1. Deregulated Wall Street: It was a great time to be a Wall Street executive during the Bush administration. Sweeping financial deregulation helped build the housing bubble and allowed financial institutions to pursue risky trades unchecked. In fact, Bush eliminated the rules that allowed Wall Street to cause the financial crash that plunged the nation into the Great Recession." ... " Left Homeowners In A Lurch: While Bush was happy to help out the banks in the wake of the housing crisis, he did little to assist struggling homeowners. Hope For Homeowners, Bush’s proposal to assist those struggling with their mortgages, was a colossal failure; in its first six months, it helped just one homeowner renegotiate his mortgage. Many mortgage holders — 15.7 million or, one in three — are still underwater today. " Check this out: http://thinkprogress.org/economy/2012/06/14/4...

Former President Clinton's told 60 Minutes that his mother was married five times to four men, marrying one man twice after a divorce.

He also admitted that he committed adultery for the worst possible reason: "Just because I could," saying, "I think that's just about the most morally indefensible reason that anybody could have for doing anything – when you do something just because you could."

The definition of character is what you do when no one is watching.

That's what bothered me the most. Clinton's approval ratings remained high even though his character ratings were in the dumps.

Did that mean we stopped caring as a nation about character not only being an important but necessary quality in our leaders?

We obviously stopped caring about about our character as a nation when killing the unborn became the law of the land.

That's also why we had Obamacare shoved down our throats. Just because Obama and the Democrats "could".

Clinton's confessions explain a lot about our nation's moral decline.

again.....

The critics have forgotten that the House passed a GSE reform bill in 2005 that could well have prevented the current crisis, says Mr Oxley, now vice-chairman of Nasdaq.

He fumes about the criticism of his House colleagues.“All the handwringing and bedwetting is going on without remembering how the House stepped up on this,” he says.“What did we get from the White House? We got a one-finger salute.”

The House bill, the 2005 Federal Housing Finance Reform Act, would have created a stronger regulator with new powers to increase capital at Fannie and Freddie, to limit their portfolios and to deal with the possibility of receivership.

Mr Oxley reached out to Barney Frank, then the ranking Democrat on the committee and now its chairman, to secure support on the other side of the aisle. But after winning bipartisan support in the House, where the bill passed by 331 to 90 votes, the legislation lacked a champion in the Senate and faced hostility from the Bush administration.

Adamant that the only solution to the problems posed by Fannie and Freddie was their privatisation, the White House attacked the bill. Mr Greenspan also weighed in, saying that the House legislation was worse than no bill at all.

“We missed a golden opportunity that would have avoided a lot of the problems we’re facing now, if we hadn’t had such a firm ideological position at the White House and the Treasury and the Fed,” Mr Oxley says.

http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/8780c35e-7e91-11dd-...

The Administration strongly believes that the housing GSEs should be focused on their core housing mission, particularly with respect to low-income Americans and first-time homebuyers. Instead, provisions of H.R. 1461 that expand mortgage purchasing authority would lessen the housing GSEs' commitment to low-income homebuyers.

Helping those who "qualify" with a downpayment is a far cry from giving mortgage loans to anyone who can sign on the dotted line who can't afford an overpriced monthly mortgage.

It's unfortunate you can't see the difference - and why there's so much confusion today.

Tear down this icon: Why the GOP has to get over Ronald Reagan

The unfailing reverence on the American right for Ronald Reagan is understandable. He was the only exemplar of modern conservatism to win the White House, and unlike liberal icons such as Roosevelt or Johnson or Obama, he presided over an economic boom and became beloved by voters not normally drawn to his party. No wonder that Reagan, long before his death in 2004, attained mythical status in the conservative movement and the Republican Party.

But that myth has become a burden for the modern GOP. It has bound Reagan’s followers on the right to policies and positions that were time-specific. The old guard has become convinced that Reagan’s solutions to the problems of his time were the essence of conservatism — not simply conservative ideas appropriate for that era.

Today’s Republican Party, however, faces legions of voters and candidates who came of age politically after Reagan’s eight years in office. An entire generation recalls him vaguely as a genial, optimistic president who stood up for America in the Cold War.

The Republican Party can remain a Ronald Reagan historical society, or it can try to endure as a force in national politics. But it can’t do both. The choice matters greatly, for there is no guarantee that the GOP will retain its ability to win national elections or that conservatism has a future as a national governing philosophy.

Freddie Mac recently began 25 initiatives around the country to dismantle barriers and create greater opportunities for homeownership. One of the programs is designed to help deserving families who have bad credit histories to qualify for homeownership loans.
