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

Yeah, man, he is. It's pretty much red state blue state stuff again. About 25 years ago Prince Charles and Diana came to DC and Reagan or somebody took them on a tour of Fairfax County Virginia. Charles fuckin' flipped out, man! There he was in the car with these "dignitaries" who were, like, proud of this shit and he was tryin' to claw his way out of the limousine. No really, Virginia, flack's Virginia, is in large part ex-military, ex-Fed and they got no clue, man. The more shit you can cram into a mile of highway the better! Fuck trees, man, go to Massachusetts if you want trees. You never saw anything like it. You got no GPS? forget drivin' in ex-military Virginia cause everything there looks exactly like everything else: grey or brown.
Sometimes I'll get totally stoned and drive out 123 past the CIA (George Bush Center for Intelligence - tee-hee) and just motor on down through Tyson's and Vienna trying to figure out what they see in all this? Walmart? Screw that, man. Another shitbox American company sellin' cheap chinee shit to retired sojurs an' farmers, eager to grab aholt the good life. Now get your ass out there, man, and start drowning some of these people before they eat your brains.
Here, I repeat myself... what "good" has ever come out of the south? When you think of "problem solving" do you think, "I need to find me some redneck assholes!" When choosing a brain surgeon do you interview ex-military personnel? C'mon, man, get busy.
You make a compelling argument for staying the hell out of Virgina. Although my wife and I did go to Virginia Beach once and were able to have a glass of wine and beer on the beach while listening to live music without being harrassed, pummeled to the ground, and hog-tied by the local PD, so I guess the entire state isn't a complete hellhole.

Sam's Club might.
BTW Homer__"first time" unemployment claims fell to a five year low last week__that's a signal of progress. All the nations major homebuilders are seeing gains in the value of their stock__that's a huge signal of progress.
The Detroit three continue to impress with Ford sales up 16% in April and GM and Chrysler up 11%
What's not to like?
Hey Realtime, things are pretty good, myself we have been swamped, making American made products, for months now. Just think 35% of the country is rightwingers, if they ever get in the game, this economy will be smoking. They can't drive those 10 year old cars around forever, maybe those auto sales you posted are already an indication.

Just like this moron clings to his "labor participation rate" as some sot of new proof the economy is getting worse when he is too uninformed to know that the participation rate has been declining since the late 90's.

<quoted text> The statistics prove that not to be true around here. For every WalMart built you get at least 50 other stores and restaurants. Around here when they build a new one you get a Sally's, Wendy's, Jiffy lube, three or four small strip malls full of stores and food joints, Applebee's, Dollar Tree, etc. They create hundreds of jobs over and above their own hires.
They create hundreds of low paying parttime jobs and instruct their employees on how to apply for medicaide, Walmart believes in socialized medicine, we the taxpayers are paying their employees health insurance, we the taxpayers are paying their property taxes, we the taxpayers are allowing them to keep the sales tax they collect. You're so way out there on this that it's pathetic.
Other businesses cannot compete with them, they come into town to destroy. Before you know it, all surrounding businesses hear this:
"This is cheaper at Walmart" no shit it's cheaper.

Democrats should continue to push gun control to assure Republican victories.
Pat Toomey, Republican Senator, said the latest gun bill failed because Republicans thought passing it would give Obama victory.

Once again proving Republicans care more abut their party's future success at the poll that they care about this country.

Pathetic.

Maybe it's already been posted but the FBI now has little bro's laptop__one of his sidekicks had it.

Those little mutts look comedic.

And the FBI appears to finally be leaning on the older bro's bride who actually has a Warwick RI mugshot from 2007. Hah!

Aunt Bettie Lou, "It was also a Democrat who became the president after Lincoln's death who took away the 40 acres and a mule promised by General Grant " Not quite accurate.'The Special Field Orders issued by Sherman were never intended to represent an official policy of the United States government with regards to all former slaves and were issued "throughout the campaign to assure the harmony of action in the area of operations." Possibly, President Johnson's revocation of the special field orders were based on the fact that it was an overstepping of the limits of Presidential powers--something that the Republican -controlled Congress had already had severely restricted. The Republicans could have easily passed the '40 acres and a mule ' orders into law during Reconstruction ;so why didn't they? "A republican president would have also signed the CRA of 1964. It's time had come. In fact, a republican congressman is credited for its passing in Congress after working tirelessly behind the scenes" Would a 'republican ' President had done what a Democrat President Johnson did do in fact?-- Johnson relentlessly pushed his good friend and political rival , Everett Dirksen , to step up and advocate for passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Open Housing Act of 1968-- and Dirksen also helped write both laws -- Johnson also magnanimously gave a large part of the credit to Dirksen for the Civil Rights Act and Open Housing Act being passed with overwhelming support.(No one in their right mind , even diehard loyalists to Richard Nixon , would ever believe that Nixon would had been as magnanimous to his political enemies as President Johnson had been(Another good example how a Democrat President put love of country and the public good ahead of party partisanship.)
