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

Yes it is always a great improvement when fewer people are working than when a POTUS came into office and the one factor that keeps the Stock market propped up is printing of money that is causing us all to pay outrageous prices at the pump and store. If this is your idea of Utopia please keep it away from the rest of us.
Liar. More people are woking than when Obama took office.

I never said it was utopia, I said it was better.

Yes in this series of exchanges, the Obama voter thinks
1) that calling someone liar is intellectually equivalent of actually putting up a defense or supported viewpoint
2) the Obama voter has no clue about current events and fails to understand the position of his own idol-Obama
3)the Obama voter is frequently confused about what is the topic
4)the Obama voter displayed an EQ of a six year old

You can continue to embarrass yourself with your childish responses or actually use BING and discover that there are fewer people in the work force. Everyone knows this but you.

You have run from the truth way too long and are in a poor position for anyone to take you seriously as a truth police.

And so one of the things that I'm going to talk about a little bit today is how to create a sustained commitment by the private sector that will have a powerful impact. First of all, we want to make sure that we help work to expand capital available to buyers, and as I mentioned, overcome the barriers that I've delineated, as well as provide the education component. In other words, this is not just a federal responsibility.
That's why I've challenged the industry leaders all across the country to get after it for this goal, to stay focused, to make sure that we achieve a more secure America, by achieving the goal of 5.5 million new minority home owners. I call it America's home ownership challenge.
And let me talk about some of the progress which we have made to date, as an example for others to follow. First of all, government sponsored corporations that help create our mortgage system -- I introduced two of the leaders here today -- they call those people Fannie May and Freddie Mac, as well as the federal home loan banks, will increase their commitment to minority markets by more than $440 billion.(Applause.) I want to thank Leland and Franklin for that commitment. It's a commitment that conforms to their charters, as well, and also conforms to their hearts.
This means they will purchase more loans made by banks after Americans, Hispanics and other minorities, which will encourage homeownership. Freddie Mac will launch 25 initiatives to eliminate homeownership barriers. Under one of these, consumers with poor credit will be able to get a mortgage with an interest rate that automatically goes down after a period of consistent payments.

Thus the George W Bush inspired housing bubble of 2003-2007. And then the sht hit the fan!

But wait there's more__many of the financial institutions that quickly went sideways were not victims of home loans but of a stock market in free fall.

Farmed and Dangerous - CFIA Destroys a Shepherd's Life and Her Rare Sheep

They killed her pregnant ewes to find out if they were healthy.????

Why do they kill first, ask questions later? Why are small farms expected to fork over years of hard labor and valuable animals when large-scale corporate farms get the green light even if caught abusing animals or when their food sickens a lot of people? In fact, they lobby Congress for laws to make sure no one finds out negative practices and to paint animal activists as terrorists...

You need to scan your computer. I opened the link without any difficulty and my firewall did not signal and problems-I use a very popular anti-virus program.

What he was using is tiny url which is very popular on Twitter and other social media. They function without difficulty for thousands of people. However, despite your claim you did open the article.

"I think it's reprehensible for a member of the media to sit in safety and mock such a profound tragedy regardless of any 'point' he is trying to make," Dewhurst said.

Bad taste destroys any point the looney media was attempting to make.

You said that the Democrats did all of this after controlling Congress for two years,. I had to remind your uninformed ass that the recession started 4th quarter of 2007.

So what legislation was passed?

It a simple question, why can't you answer it?

You can read it for yourself, you right-wing-lyin'-ass email believer: "Fact Check: Email was wrong about recent mass killers being liberals

By Carole Fader Thu, Mar 14, 2013 @ 8:52 pm | updated Thu, Apr 4, 2013 @ 12:01 pm

An email says that recent mass killers were all progressive liberals and most were registered Democrats. Is that true?

The viral email lists the shooters in the killings at Fort Hood, Columbine High School, Virginia Tech, Aurora, Colo. and Newtown, Conn., as being registered Democrats.“Instead of registering and banning firearms,” the email says,”possibly we should register and ban progressive liberal Democrats.”

A look at what’s known about the suspects pretty much debunks this viral email.

The information in the email seems to have originated with Roger Hedgecock, a former mayor of San Diego and now a lobbyist, lecturer and conservative radio talk show host. In his radio broadcast, Hedgecock did not provide any evidence in any of the cases, making assumptions in some and inaccuracies in others.

The email assigns a Democrat tag to Adam Lanza, the Newtown, Conn., shooter, because, it says, Connecticut has almost twice as many registered Democrats as Republicans. That is true (815,713 to 449,648, according to the latest state records) and it is also true that President Barack Obama carried Connecticut in the past two presidential elections.

But to assume that Lanza was a Democrat because of that makes an awfully large reach. Incidentally, as of the last election, there were 5,364 people registered as Republicans in Newtown, and 4,505 registered as Democrats. And Newtown went for Mitt Romney 51.7 percent to 47 percent, according to official election results.

NO PARTY TAGS IN VIRGINIA OR TEXAS

There is no proof of Fort Hood suspect Nidal Hasan’s political affiliation....

Note the top chart which shows Civilian labor force participation rate. Anyone can see it is downhill.

Now look at the second table

Work force participation was 65.7 January 2009
Work force participation is 63.3 as of March 2013
