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

The stock market is normally a leading indicator of the economy.

However, the current environment is different. Companies are maintaining profitably even as revenues are stagnant by cutting costs to the bone. Government policies like Obamacare strongly encourage this behavior. So expect continued profits and continued high unemployment.

Many blue states are near bankruptcy. Do you think that this additional burden will cause great financial difficulty for them?

The we "lack reading comprehension" claims here by Progressives is getting irritating.

<quoted text>The I R S was requesting that pro-choice and anti-choice groups applying for the tax exempt status comply with laws that placed reasonable limits on their rights to free speech and free association . So, no one at the I R S singled out only anti-choice groups .
The IRS (in the Cincinnati office) was taking up the applications as they were submitted.

During the suspect period most of the apps for 501 (c)(4) tax exemptions were coming in from political oriented groups such as TeaParty and 9/12 which are not exactly aligned with social welfare. Matter of fact an argument can be made that those sorts of groups stand firmly against social welfare.

Obviously the apps presented were full of red flags thus the questions that the IRS wished answered in writing. The IRS was attempting to justify that the groups focus would be social welfare and not "free money for the fanciest anti Obama website."

One app that fell under scrutiny came from the Liberty Township Ohio TeaParty. Do we really need TeaParty groups every ten miles like McDonald's??? Do TeaParty groups really need to compete with one another for the "biggest" donors? How about rallies held in churches where the political messages are accompanied by religious ones?

The Ohio (R) congressman who stood up for the Liberty Township group clearly did not know the difference between a 501 (c)(4) and a 501 (c)(3)__or else he was lying. I sent a nasty email to the fat little fk. He didn't reply!

So?
Same poll says Americans now love Obama more because of the scandals!
See? They are lying to you!
At least 1 of you right wingers learned not to trust them polls. That's what got your asses torched a few months back! According to the polls, Romney had a 4-5 point lead just days before the manslaughter took place on Nov 6. The same thing will happen come mid term elections. The enlightened is just waiting patient to remove those speed bumps from office, so Obama can fully implement his agenda! They won't sleep & assume like they did in 2010. You can count on it!

President Obama gave an outstanding speach at Morehouse:

“We know that too many young men in our community continue to make bad choices,” Mr. Obama said.“And I have to say, growing up I made quite a few myself. Sometimes I wrote off my own failings as just another example of the world trying to keep a black man down.”

“But one of the things all of you have learned over the last four years is there’s no longer any room for excuses,” the president said to the roughly 500 graduates in a downpour, his words punctuated by claps of thunder.

Wearing academic robes in maroon and black — he was later awarded an honorary law degree — Mr. Obama singled out a graduate, Leland Shelton, who, as a four-year-old had been taken away from his mother by the state. By 14, he was in foster care.

On Sunday, Mr. Shelton graduated with Phi Beta Kappa honors and is enrolling at Harvard Law School. The president said that Mr. Shelton planned to use his law degree to advocate for other foster children.

Above all, Mr. Obama exhorted the graduates to extend a hand to other black men, noting that his own success depended less on his Ivy League credentials than on the sense of empathy and obligation he felt, as a black man, to his brothers.

But for the grace of God, I might be in their shoes,” the president said.“I might have been in prison. I might have been unemployed. I might not have been able to support a family.”

Reflecting on his turbulent childhood, Mr. Obama said,“I sure wish I had had a father who was not only present, but involved; didn’t know my dad. And so my whole life, I’ve tried to be for Michelle and my girls what my father wasn’t for my mother and me.”

Declaring that “there are some things, as black men, we can only do for ourselves,” Mr. Obama urged the graduates to “keep setting an example for what it means to be a man.” And he asked them to extend their sense of justice to other minorities.

Chris Matthews said Obama likes giving speeches more than he likes leading the country.

So it's probably not a good idea to keep reinforcing that fact.

New Yorkers, when asked on the street about Benghazi and the IRS scandal, had not heard of either. At least 12 people were asked.

One student at Cornell University couldn't even name the VP.

New York predominately votes Democrat. These are the people who put this president back into office.

Monsanto Suffers Key Court Loss on Brazil RR1 Royalties

Brazil's top appeals court Thursday reiterated its ruling that Monsanto's patent on first-generation RoundUp Ready soybeans expired in September 2010 and the U.S. biotech giant had been charging royalties illegally for over two years.

The unanimous decision puts another dent in Monsanto's claim that it has the right to charge royalties in Brazil until 2014, in line with the rest of the world.

Monsanto will appeal the ruling at Brazil's appeals court and also at the Supreme Court, the St. Louis-based company said in a statement, adding that it remained 'confident in its rights and the validity of its RR1 soybean patent until 2014.'

But farmer representatives said the appeals court justices' decision leaves Monsanto's position in tatters.

"The Supreme Appeals Court put a full stop to Monsanto's decision to insist in not following the law," said Ricardo Tomczyk, vice-president of the Mato Grosso Soybean and Corn Producers Association (APROSOJA-MT).

You do realize that your assertion of pedophiles is false & aimed at the wrong party. Believe what thou wilt, doth the same! Nothing will become of any of the"scandals"the right is pushing so hard for. You can only block Obama's ideology until mid term elections. Then your asses will be booted into purgatory, where your voices will really be irrelevant. No amount of"scandals,"rumors, or lies will change that fact!

The IRS was targeting conservative groups
