George Bush: war criminal with warrants out for his arrest has to hide in Texas for life.
Wait until President Obama's second term is up! He'll make millions on the speaking circuit, like Bill Clinton.
Jimma Carter? The one-term worst president voted out of office? You're hilarious!

Cash out before Obama grabs the money "for your protection" to protect Social Security.

<quoted text>The eventual outcome to this is no more cashiers. Sheesh, is there anything good at all about Walmart? I expect next they'll have robots to stock the shelves.
I'm begging now, please stop shopping theere for the good of mankind. You must have some shred of human decency buried somewhere deep within your dying hulking shell.
Walmart provides jobs for low-skills employees and low prices for the poor.

Actually, low prices for everybody.

Aunt Bettie Lou, "As George W. Bush re-enters the public eye for the dedication of his presidential library, his job rating is the highest it's been since 2005,..." Most likely because Americans are a forgiving people ,especially when they know that a politician who behaved like an elephant's ass in office never, ever will run for public office again. Americans won't have to bear Bush W's fanatical extremism ever again.(If Obama can just let Bush/Cheney slink off to some deep dark hiding place in Texas then that's good enough for the rest of us. There is a bigger face of the GOP to hate than George W Bush now. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php...

<quoted text>When Bush left office my 401K was in the toilet due to his bad policies and actions. Since Obama has been president due to his policies and actions my 401K has rebounded and is currently in hyper-drive. I have full coverage through my employer with my deductables covered by my HSA also through and financed by my employer.
When the cost of your "full coverage" explodes, your employer may decide to change the coverage.

HSA accounts will disappear under Obamacare, considered tax loopholes for the wealthy.

Actually, it was a snafu with my email address and having used it once before and not wanting to download what turned out to be necessary in order to complete the process.
After getting a new email address and downloading what was necessary, it was a cinch.
Now, about the other comments you made.
I love blacks who don't hate me or republicans for the sins of the past perpetrated by their own party and hate us just because they like free stuff.
The others I have reservations about. They are too easily duped.
Also, I love bargains. Actually, I LIVE for bargains. I NEVER go into furniture stores and pay three times as much for somethng I could get in a thrift or discount store that looks brand new and usually is much more interesting.
It's called being frugal and fiscally conservative.
I know, those words are alien to you. You're a liberal.
You like a thrift or discount store that looks brand new and is usually much more interesting? You bigoted old hypocrite, you're never going to find all the modifiers you misplace, right? You LIVE for bargains, but state that blacks hate you and your tribe because they (blacks) like free stuff...when was the last time you could see your cankles? I think those mini strokes have added up to full-blown dementia.

Make up your mind.
There are tens of millions of poor people, even more since Obama took control. Most are poor because they don't work, but still manage to survive easily. Even have cell phones.

Meanwhile, the middle class gets screwed to support these leeches.

I support any vice as long as it really pisses off the PC police.
But you go ahead and take that toke, belt down another shot and snort it up.
Just don't get behind the wheel of a car. But the PC have no problem with that. Smokers are a much bigger danger on the road.
I think it'd be great if everyone grabbed a cigarette whether they smoked or not and lit up anywhere and everywhere the PC police have forbidden it? A rebellion is in order.
Grab the biggest soft drink container you can find too.
I'm in agreement on this; what about smoking a joint?
They're on their way to pass the no text and drive,$30.00 ticket, what say you?
I say, stop giving the police more excuses to harrass the public.

Yes, a man ahead of his time, solar panels on the White House that Reagan promptly removed. Beloved around the world, building houses for Habitat for Humanity and he's in his 80's! Unstoppable energy, a life devoted to humanitarian causes. A true American hero, and Christian in the right sense of the word.

It's the baby boomers Flacko__I've told you at least a half dozen times already.
The never seen before retirement rate is skewing the traditional government statistics and it may get even worse until those born in 54-55 flush through.
You're ignoring the good news choosing rather to find some bullsht bad news number.
Sad life you've got going there pal.
Oh and BTW just today it was announced that Daytona Beach is getting a spanking new beachfront Hard Rock Hotel just a short walk from the pier. Projected cost is $100 million and opening date is set for the 2016 Daytona 500.
I guess ObammyCare didn't chase everyone off.

So who's the racist now? I post the National Black Republicans Association website - of which their numbers are continually growing - and you call it - and I assume them - crap?
And now you have a website "of which their numbers are continually growing"? Speaking of crap, you bible-thumping old hypocrite, if asked where you sh!t last, the most accurate answer you could give would be "everywhere."

Well, good for him. Who opened those doors for him is the question. Either the taxpayers in this evil capitalistic society or someone with a lot of money who had an agenda for him.
You know he won the Senate in Illinois twice unopposed, right? The first time because he went about disqualifying his opponent's petition signatures, and the second time because his opponent's "divorce scandal" somehow ended up being splattered all over the newspapers. He didn't even win unopposed by a big majority.
Same thing happened when he ran for the US Senate. His opponent suddenly ended up in a "scandal" and had to drop out.
Don't you find that a little bit odd? Because I sure do.
It was his opponents wife who threw the book at him Carol.

You know, you're not losing any tonnage sitting there at the PC, Ginger Kid.

You gingers don't have souls, you know.
