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

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)

LOL Bush was a drunk and made a mess. It's a miracle Obama hasn't turned to drinking himself cleaning up Bush's mess. I can afford all the drink I want I just don't require it with that (dumb as a box of rocks Bush out of office). Obama got Bin Laden what did Bush do? I will tell you lay drunk and lie.

We're probably going to hear a lot about the "Keeling curve" and references to "400 parts per million" in the coming weeks. The curve measures the ratio of carbon dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere, and that ratio is about to cross the 400-ppm level for the first time in, oh, 3 million to 5 million years.

"I wish it weren't true, but it looks like the world is going to blow through the 400-ppm level without losing a beat," says a Scripps geochemist. "At this pace we'll hit 450ppm within a few decades." Which will mean a hotter planet and rising sea levels, says another of the scientists.“Our dumping of heat and CO2 into the ocean is like making investments in a pollution bank."

Thank you, oh wise and far-sighted Repugnants.

November, 1953

The CIA right wingnuts come up with brilliant plan.

"Let's topple the secular, democratic regime of Mosadegh and install the Shah as dictator."

26 year later, the Shah is overthrown, Iran becomes a totalitarian theocracy run by fanatical clerics about to develop nuclear technology.

My, that went well.

Thank you, oh wise and far-sighted Repugnants.

They are about as wise as a rock, proof to these followers of the conservative movement is no proof at all. You might view the video link about a book published on Denial-ism: How Irrational Thinking Harms the Planet and Threatens Our Lives. It covers everything from vaccines to other scientific achievements. With the point being if Electricity had just been invented and the first two products that came off the line were the elec chair and a cattle prod. Would you be one of the crowd to have it banned ?

<quoted text>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.
The damage was done by January, 2007. Bad loans by banks which even the FBI warned you Republicans about in 2004 were not reined in.

Nor did you do anything about the credit default swaps which greatly exacerbated the mortagage crisis.

The Democrat Congress that took over in January, 2007 was incredibly weak.

In the Senate, 49 Democrats supported by 2 independents.

Wow... "big" majority there, eh?

Suffice to say, you whine BS all you want, but the Dem majority was unable to overcome any Bush veto or a Republican filibuster.

Furthermore, I defy you to produce the legislation they passed you imply was responsbile for the collapse which followed.

Waiting...
