BMW makes good cars in Germany as well as in the US and they aren't exactly in competition with Detroit three built cars are they? Should mention that US BMW sales are well off the mark at present. It's not the cost for the cars but the cost for the post warranty maintenance and repairs.
So, the US has one positive (military veterans), one inconsequential neutral (native Americans), one huge disadvantage (illegal aliens), and another huge disadvantage that you fail to note (large minority population).

Waxman, "The point is Food Stamp usage has doubled and is has. Stop beating around the bush, dumbfk." You nailed John Galt, Waxey-eared , Galt claimed "44.7 million Americans now on food stamps, compared to 28.2 million in 2008."--All of them signed up for Food Stamps ON George W Bush's watch BEFORE Obama was inaugurated in 2009. I wonder why that was? Maybe, the deep recession and rising unemployment at the end of Bush's term in office? Duhhhhhh! You don't 'beat around the bush,now dumbfk'!:-D

It's an unassailable fact that in January 2007, when Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid took over Congress, unemployment was 4.6% and food stamp usage was around 26.5 million Americans. Today, the actual unemployment rate is 9.6% and over fifty million Americans are now on food stamps.

Nancy Pelosi: Quickest way to create jobs is to provide more funding for food stamps.

No Surprize and TSM can not even read their own source material on Food Stamp roles 'doubling' I wonder if both of them are really pre-school toddlers messing on Mom's computer. Check this out: http://www.factcheck.org/2012/09/romneys-food...

In 2008, three times as many recipients were added to the SNAP rolls as was the case the year before. The recession began in December 2007. That’s before Obama took office and some indication of how the economy affected participation."..."T hose receiving benefits from what’s officially called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program totaled 46.7 million in June 2012. As we wrote in an earlier piece, the increase in SNAP participation in recent years is largely due to the economic downturn and sluggish recovery. Statistics also show less reluctance from Americans in applying for such aid." So, Waxey-woozy ,your other contention that Food Stamp recipients got 'free government handouts' is also bogus--they had to work to receive food stamp aid(Further , many of the new Food Stamp recipients were from American working farm families having difficulties competing with Government-assisted , subsidized Big Agri-business.

Enrollment in the food stamp program — officially the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program — has soared by 70 percent in the years since President Obama first took office.

The government said the recession ended in 2009, The Wall Street Journal reports, but enrollment in Obama's food stamp program didn’t wane, as would be expected in an improving economy. Since 2008, it’s been on a steady rise.

A record 50.o million people now participate in the program, as of December 2012 — a figure that translates into a 70 percent rise since 2008.

Despite government claims, the job market is still lagging. The poverty rate is on the rise, and federal laws passed under former President Clinton and further under Mr. Obama are actually driving the enrollment rate higher. Those laws allow for those with higher incomes to take food stamps — the insane logic being that helping people before they reach crisis financial level will actually stimulate the economy.

Obama is the official Food Stamp President...

YOU living in a NO work zone. Waiting for your food stamps to come in. Talking on a free obamaphone, wasting away in obamaville on a "Blue Magnet" urban preserve. Nancy Pelosi proudly defends your welfare party. Food stamps create jobs. Definitely a loser and liberal you idiot.

You deranged democrats are an extraordinary parade of bullshit. You in fact, make the Corporatist Barack Obama the most GMO-dedicated politician in America.

You don't attain that position through errors or oversights. Obama was, all along, a stealth operative on behalf of Monsanto, biotech, GMOs, and corporate control of the future of agriculture and democrats.

From a liberal perspective, Michelle Obama's campaign for home gardens and clean nutritious food suddenly looks like a diversion, a cover story floated to obscure what her husband has actually been doing.

Nor does it seem coincidental that two of the Obama's biggest supporters, Bill Gates and George Soros, purchased 900,000 and 500,000 shares of Monsanto stock, respectively.

The point you idiot democrats is that we are talking about a sitting president here, a president obama who presented himself, and was believed by many to be, an extraordinary departure from politics as usual.

Not only was that a wrong assessment, Obama was lying all along. He was, and he still is, Monsanto's man in Washington.

No Surprize, "federal laws passed under former President Clinton and further under Mr. Obama are actually driving the enrollment rate higher. " Clinton has been out of office for over a decade and Obama wasn't even President yet when Food Stamp rolls tripled (your exaggerated '70% rise') mostly caused by the economic recession (2007-2009)So, fathead, place the blame where it belongs--an inattentive and do-nothing Congress under Republican John Boehner control.'Why did Congress let the Farm Bill expire on Sept. 30?' " Representatives from these districts have gotten the bill passed every five years or so by cutting a deal with congressional champions of food stamps and nutrition assistance, crucial programs that, as of 2008, account for 80 cents of every Farm Bill dollar spent. " .. "the full Senate passed a version of the Farm Bill that seemed to move food policy, however incrementally, in a positive direction."(A workable compromise between Big Ag,independent family farmers , and conservationists(treehuggers). ..."The House Agriculture Committee passed its own draft of the Farm Bill in July—but the House version was far less publicly minded than the Senate version. It continued to reward commodity producers".. "It quadrupled the Senate’s proposed food stamp budget reduction. It hacked away at important land conservation incentive programs, which can’t even keep up with demand from farmers who are eager to enroll. Riders would have done away with some of the EPA’s regulatory powers and further monopolized the meatpacking industry." So, what happened next? Food grain prices shot up, the price of milk rose too putting greater strain on poor people (many small independent farm families, the elderly on fixed incomes, the working urban poor, to be able to afford basic essentials. It were the intransigent Tea Party republicans that killed the Senate Ag. bill in the House who earned the Food Stamp King title;not President Obama.Check this out: http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politi...

No Surprize, "Since I be votin’ for Obama," let's look at it objectively;shall we? Since Obama, you're taxes have not gone up a dime--actually you've received billions of dollars in rebates from your insurance providers thanks to Obamacare's Medical Insurance Ratio that guaranteed your insurer must deliver the quality healthcare that you paid for or give your money back; saved $700 billion in Medicare costs with Obamacare and gave the money back to senior citizens Medicare recipients; Obamacare actually reduced the national deficit by $500 million dollars before it was even fully implemented, Obama hasn't killed any law abiding Americans unlike Bush/Cheney's Halliburtan killing American soldiers in Iraq because of faulty wiring and using shoddy materials to 'save a buck'), Iran does not have a nuclear bomb and it is completely surrounded and embargoed by Western and Arab allies friendly to the U S(even Russia has aided the U S in controlling Iran's nuclear program ), North Korea sends a peace emissary to the U S every year pleading for normalized relations with us; we've sent one peace emissary to North Korea;Dennis Rodman; Food stamps are up because a weak, do-nothing teary-eyed Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner can't control the House--kills new Ag. Bill (first time in 50 years and swelling Food Stamp enrollment)
