<quoted text> See John, you're skipping over the point. Does it hurt that bad to just admit that, Obama is the product the American people bought into? By word from republicans own mouth, even though democrats didn't agree with most of George W.Bush's policies, on numerous occasions they backed him, because he was the peoples choice. America voted for Bush's ideology so who was our representatives to do otherwise? Same with Obama! Who is the republicans to oppose what the American majority voted for? It's so bad people are making up conspiracy theories, trying anything (the birther movement) to try & get him removed. This is a hate deeper than ideology differences. Republicans are actually hoping (& doing whatever they can ) to see that the president of the USA fails (to no success). Bordering the line of treason!
Politicians are supposed to ignore the voices of 10s of millions of people because one party won?

In the latest shameful chapter of their war on workers, House Republicans passed the Orwellian-named “Working Families Flexibility Act,” which gives business owners the flexibility of not paying hourly workers a higher wage for overtime work.
This attempt to line the pockets of employers at the expense of workers is outrageous. When workers need to save money for health care, education, or other major life expenses, they often do it by putting in extra hours. Giving employers the opportunity to take away overtime pay could wreak havoc on our already struggling economy and minimize opportunities to enter the middle class.

Hey dumass, what did we need Bin Laden or the Arabs to fight for us ? This is what's wrong with Republican ideology. They will sleep with the enemy to further their agenda, then turn around & look shocked when the enemy does enemy type shit. First Saddam was our friend, then he was our enemy. Then Bin Laden was our friend, then he was our enemy. Both befriended by republicans & betrayed by republicans! It's funny, you people only see the links when you want
to. Reagan was the most corrupt president to ever live. All the backdoor deals he initiated, all the illegal shit he was involved in. Y'all don't mind the corrupt business as long as America profits. Bush was the most incompetent president to ever live. Also gangster, because he didn't give a shit that everyone knew he was incompetent, racist, & a complete snake. He marketed himself as such through his actions. Nobody had to make up shit about either of them. Their corruption & failures are & were well documented. You people are reaching to find something on Obama. The same way Bush is judged & scrutinized by the condition of the economy & the surplus Clinton left him, Obama is judged by the condition of the economy & deficit & debt Bush left him. Tax cuts & 2 unfunded wars, both taken on by Obama's budget. More than half of the debt accumulated by Obama us actually Bush's debt, & the other half is a direct correlation of Bush failure & incompetence!

So, why didn't Mitt Romney know that when he denied that as President he would have to care for all Americans ,even the ones who did not vote for him? That's why Romney lost. He was too stupid to be elected President.

Obamacare economics assume that a large percentage of the young, healthy people who can afford insurance but choose not to purchase will buy the insurance instead of paying the penalty-tax.

But the penalty-tax is far lower than the cost of insurance and this is probably a bad assumption.

So insurance companies will be stuck with 30 million new moochers and very few additional paying customers.

Not to mention the enormous cost of the really sick with pre-existing conditions.

You mean the truth as instructed by Fox news to their sheep? George Bush is the all time winner when it comes to lies and stupidity. Where were you while he and his party was destroying America and a few other nations?
"poop"
America is destroyed? What happened they cut back on your computer time at the rehab center? Red Lobster the place you take your Las Vegas showgirls went out of business? Bumpass law enforcement authorities arrested you when you exposed yourself to little boys? Things could be better. If president nobama would come up with a policy that made economic sense. If president nobama was not such a flip flopper. It only took 12 revisions before Susan Rice could put out the administrations lies about Benghazi, you know the lies about the video she said caused the disaster? He was against same sex marriage until his base, the far left wing loon nuts rebelled, now he is all for same sex marriage. He said if chemical weapons were used in Syria his administration would act, chemical weapons have been used and the president flip flopped, one more time.
Come on "poop" tell us all about your exploits as captain - sergeant in Nam a democrat war that caused 50,000+ American casualties. A war based on a lie, the Tonkin Gulf incident. tell us how you took care of your brother for 9 years while you working your way to sergeant - captain in the US Army. Or maybe your term as captain of the Wake baseball team, a sport you attained All American honors.
Come on "poop" do not be modest, give us more details.

If that's not the case, then what is the purpose of having a 2party system? Their would be a no party system & whoever elected would just be president, not the leader of the democratic or Republican parties respectively. Every president is judged by his/her policies which directly translates to their ideology. Obama is president because majority of the country is democrat, at least in ideology as of right now. The purpose of a democracy is so no 1 party rule can be applied. No dictatorship can be forced, which is why we have elections every 4yrs. If you don't agree, do the necessary to get your party elected in 4yrs! Long shot! Lol!

Let's say that your employer wants to give you every other Friday off by instituting a 9/80 schedule where you work 9 hours per day Monday through Thursday and 8 hours on alternate Fridays. In effect, you work 36 hours one week and 44 hours the next, for the benefit of 26 extra days off per year.

Would you accept that without demanding overtime pay?

Even worse and evil. Part-time workers have even less take-home pay for affording basic necessities food, water,fuel to heat their homes and cook warm, wholesome meals for their families, buy adequate clothing for their children, and basic healthcare . So, it's okay with you if Republicans are *only declaring war on the poorest of the poor American workers? That makes it right by you?

The Arab volunteers included people like Ayman al-Zawahiri, a young physician who had been jailed for having been involved in the assassination of Egyptian president Anwar El-Sadat.
The results of Clinton's policies were devastating for Muslim Bosniak people and Chechnya. Just in Sarajevo, capital of Bosnia-Herzegovina, over 10,000 Bosnian Muslim (Bosniak) people were killed, including 1,500 children - by the Serb Army who kept the defenseless city under siege, that inflamed Muslim's worldwide...
http://srebrenica-genocide.blogspot.com/2008/...
Bill Clinton and you lame democrats f*cked over Muslims you idiots
and here I thought it was Clinton's policies concerning the Bosnian war that stopped the genocide of Muslims by Serbs, silly me. all along I thought we were attacking Serbian forces, now according to you we were attacking the Bosnian Muslims....

oh yeah, bin Laden was a friend of the U.S., that's why he attacked us in Somalia in the early 90's
or the bombing of two hotels in Yemen in Dec 92....

BTW Chechnya is in Russia, so unless you want to start WWIII, it is advisable to stay out of that conflict

Damn right I have my hand out. I hope to get back a portion of the dollars I paid into the boondoggle, Social Security,
over the last 50+ years. I also have my hand out and take monthly payments from the monies I saved out side of Social Security.
