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

There Leadass Lou, I fixed it for you.
Bush added over 5 trillion to the national debt. Add up those budget deficits. Why don't they add up to the national debt increase???? Is it because Bush ran his wars off budget? Obama does not.
Doorknob, let's see the totals of Bush's deficits with the wars from a reputable source, otherwise stfu.

Even with the wars, voted for by demorats, they wouldn't be a trillion dollars plus.

You're lying, again.

And the failure and liar Oblamer is president, not Bush.

Leadass Lou was very pleased with his Enron Stock he bought in 1997. It provided several years of great growth. The idea that he then lost everything is not important. He still smiles about that growth it had. Leadass Lou isn't very smart.
Lying sack of shit Doorknob, Lou had no Enron stock, try again.

Where's yur money invested, Doorknob?

1) Denying loans based on race is illegal. They lost in court.
2) The CRA sais banks, in their communities, had to make more of an effort to help people get mortgages. They had to lower the down payment or the interest rate but mortgage buyers STILL HAD TO SHOW THEY COULD MAKE THOSE PAYMENTS.
So, you believe that banks should be racist. Interesting.
Liar, yur willful ignorance is very annoying, stop kissing Oblamers ass.

At President Clinton’s direction, no fewer than 10 federal agencies issued a chilling ultimatum to banks and mortgage lenders to ease credit for lower-income minorities or face investigations for lending discrimination and suffer the related adverse publicity. They also were threatened with denial of access to the all-important secondary mortgage market and stiff fines, along with other penalties.
The threat was codified in a 20-page “Policy Statement on Discrimination in Lending” and entered into the Federal Register on April 15, 1994, by the Interagency Task Force on Fair Lending. Clinton set up the little-known body to coordinate an unprecedented crackdown on alleged bank redlining.
The edict — completely overlooked by the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission and the mainstream media — was signed by then-HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros, Attorney General Janet Reno, Comptroller of the Currency Eugene Ludwig and Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, along with the heads of six other financial regulatory agencies.

I guess if you had a fireworks store you wouldn't find it suspicious that 1 person would buy that much gunpowder in these times?

If in Jan of 2009, you fricken idiot Tea Party dicks cut government spending, you would have reduced further the amount of spending & sent millions more to the unemployment lines deepening the economic crisis.

My God, not green energy initiatives OMG OMG OMG
Not education - those socialist union f*cks.
Not welfare - taking from the rich & giving to the poor.
Funny how you right whiers no longer agree with any of those issues.
Yet here you are, praising Bush.
I can only assume its because you are just ignorant of the facts.
Where's the Weatherman and the Bill Ayers of today? We need some bombings to wake up the fool Oblamer.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.-- Just as the St. Jude Thaddeus Catholic Church choir began its final hymn, a man vaulted over pews and lashed out at the singers, sending four churchgoers to the hospital with stab wounds, authorities said.
Worshippers screamed as the shocking and chaotic scene unfolded Sunday with the attacker continuing the onslaught until he was tackled and held by church members for officers, who raced to the scene, police said.
Police identified the suspect as 24-year-old Lawrence Capener

President Obama became the first sitting president to address Planned Parenthood on Friday. Not surprisingly, he didn’t have anything to say about Kermit Gosnell, or the wave of medical emergencies at abortion clinics, or the sex-selection abortions Live Action discovered at Planned Parenthood. Obama didn’t even use the word “abortion” in his speech. Abortion is so wonderful that even the most strident abortion radical ever elected to the White House can’t bring himself to say the word.
If the abortion industry didn’t enjoy the nearly religious devotion of the Left, it would be Occupy Wall Street’s favorite example of a big business that pays big bucks for political influence, so it can operate with ridiculously lax oversight, weak safety standards, and lavish subsidies. Kermit Gosnell preyed relentlessly upon poor black women, while treating his assistants like sweat shop labor. The excuses offered by Planned Parenthood when its staff is caught flaunting the law on undercover video are reminiscent of tobacco company executives trying to claim that smoking isn’t bad for you. The Democrat Party has expressed a willingness to shut down the entire government to protect Planned Parenthood subsidies. When a prominent charity, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, tried to decouple from Planned Parenthood, the response was straight out of “The Sopranos.” You are required to fund this organization, and you are not allowed to stop. They’ve got a lot of money, political clout, and media influence available to enforce that directive....
A PP employee told a woman that aborting her fully formed 6 month old fetus would be no problem. Heard it on Rush.

How do you abort a six month old baby?

Answer:
You dont! You dont let it get that far if you dont want the baby!

As far as I am aware there is nowhere in the world you can abort a normal baby at six months and at this stage a baby born has an at least 50% chance of survival.

<quoted text>Signs death warrants__I don't think the governor can pardon.
Ann Richards wouldn't sign a death warrant so Bush had 8 years worth of them stacked up on his desk on day one. He didn't really have a choice being a Republican and all__but he made a few unnecessary comments along the way.
Let Carol and the other yayhoo's have their memories to diddle__Bush is essentially trapped in Texas, unwelcome even in (R) circles and doesn't dare travel to Europe. He flew to the Caymans for a speech and he'll trek to D.C. and Maine when Sr passes. That's a pretty lonely existence for an ex POTUS imo.

The More Illegals That Go On Food Stamps The More Money JP Morgan Makes
Recently uncovered documents prove that the Obama has been working with the Mexican government to increase the number of illegal aliens on food stamps, and when more illegal aliens go on food stamps JP Morgan makes more money. As you will read, JP Morgan has made at least 560 million dollars processing Electronic Benefits Transfer cards.

Here's a moron Obama supporter up past 2AM knocking capitalism. He is a prime example of why this country is in decline.

No one's bashing capitalism moron. Capitalism is what grew this country by people starting businesses and hiring people selling goods and services and contributing to the local economies. What's at issue is corporatism that ships job to countries that pay low wages and have no concerns for worker health and safety and stash their profits in offshore banks to avoid paying taxes for the services they receive in this country.
When Sam Walton started his business he was a capitalist. He kept his prices low by maintaining low profit margins and he sold American goods whenever possible. His heirs however went to the corporatist route making their profits by selling cheap foreign goods produced by virtual slave labor paying their employees crap and driving small businesses out.
You're an idiot!

Absolutely correct and these head in the sand ringers keep thinking that Capitalism unchecked is the cure for all ills.
Once Corporate America went looking for cheap, so did jobs and the environment get taxed as a result. There is a HIGH price to pay for cheap! So next time one of you put on the Nike or brand name sweat shirt think about 350 Bangladesh workers crushed to death making it. Or the next time you visit Starbucks enjoying a coffee that might brought down a rain forest making it. Thats the real cost of capitalism and globalisation.

When MSN is even worried about the economy...
http://money.msn.com/investing/c_galleryregul...
The Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank, the Bank of England and the Bank of Japan are all printing money and injecting it into the financial systems in various ways and, while this is giving stocks a sugar rush, it's not really helping the real economy heal its deep wounds. Despite the fact the Fed has nearly quadrupled the monetary base since 2008 and pushed inflation-adjusted interest rates deep into negative territory, we've experienced the weakest postwar recovery on record. And by many measures, things are starting to stall again.
...Obamacare is the noose around this economy and job creation. Time to stop blaming Bush and take a good look at Obama.
Wrong again Carol! Obamacare doesn't have a damned thing to do with the economy's slow growth. The real roadblocks are the Republicans who control the House who want to impose European style austerity on the country. We have roads and bridges that need repair and water delivery that leaks away as much water as it delivers. If we invested the money in these projects it would put people back to work and stimulate the economy. There's a lot we can do Carol but it requires investments and not cuts. No one ever cut their way to prosperity they invested their way to it. During the Eisenhower administration our debt was over 100% of GDP but the government didn't solve this by draconian cuts. To the contrary we set off on the largest infrastructure projects in US history; the interstate highway system and the St. Lawrence Seaway.
No we're not going to stop blaming Bush. If it weren't for his uncalled for tax cuts that didn't produce any economic stimulus except for offshore banks and two unnecessary wars we wouldn't have the massive deficit that we do.

"Who Will Build The Roads?"
by
A//POLITICAL
We've got a dream in our hearts and we won't give it up!

Insane with desperation in a world so fucking cold and grey
Masked soulless creatures toiling, wasting day to day
Production units, fucking cogs, nothing but a number
Hollow lives, some existence, do you ever wonder?

There must be an alternative to this insensitive way of life!
There is an alternative, but we've got to fucking fight!

How much longer can we exist in this shit world?
The blueprints for the apocalypse have already been unfurled
Government after government has proven fucking false!
Have YOU answers? What's YOUR answer? WE'RE the answer and the cause!

If the government is the answer, it's a stupid fucking question!

Time and again we're criticized by those quick to buy into
the media definition of what is anarchy.
A media whose sole purpose is to serve the rich elite.
The corporations: those whose sole interest is profit at whatever price.
People buy into this shit unknowingly from birth.
What alternative source of information are they given after all? None!
You question, you doubt, you give up!
Rebel a bit and get it out of your system.
There are no alternatives, right? Wrong!
You won't find change in government.
You won't find change in escapism either.
You will however find a change in you, in us.
We are the system.
We are the masses so many speak of.
We are the root of the problem.
We are at the base.
Who will build the roads? WE WILL!
Who will provide the basic necessities? WE WILL!
Who will bring an end to poverty, homelessness, greed, war, death, famine, injustice?
If anything, WE WILL!
We are the alternative! There is no savior! There is no god!
A better leader won't come along!
A better government does not exist! JUST YOU AND I!

Yes stupid I can. FEMA did its job and provided people with temporary living arrangements and now it's up to those individuals to work with their insurance companies to find permanent homes. What are you asking for, some kind of "nanny state"?
Your obsession with Obamacare and blaming it for all the problems this country faces is really getting tiresome.

I log in with multiple renewal IP numbers and spam the Topix Judge Icons for the replies to their post...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...

- 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...

Try It! and SEE and judge my post here with multiple copies...
