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

Citizens keep building on flood plains, on eroding shorelines, in the path of reoccurring hurricanes, inside of Tornado Alleys, on the sides of hills known for their mudslides......and the American taxpayer keeps on paying for their stupidity while CNN keeps filming their suffering. It sells.
New Orleans sits below sea level and we keep fixing those damned levies and pumps so that the ho's can keep plying their trade on Bourbon Street and the rats don't have to wear Life Vests. New Orleans should have been given back to the fish and the alligators 100 years ago.
Anyone who chooses to live in harm's way should shoulder the exorbitant insurance and Search & Rescue costs or get the hell out.
The one difference is that "Tornado Alley" is virtually the entire Midwest and Plains region, producing most of the food supply for not only the US, but much of the rest of the world.

So it is impossible to abandon this region.

Obama Administration's Media Surveillance Unleashes Wave Of Condemnation

The Justice Department's investigation and surveillance of the Associated Press and Fox News have led to
perhaps
the most sustained wave
of criticism <-
for the Obama administration's media policies
since the president took office.[:D]

On Wednesday, the New York Times became one of the more influential voices to say

what many others have been saying:

that the administration's methods are an attack on press freedom.

In a *scathing* editorial, the Times wrote that, "With the decision to label a Fox News television reporter a possible 'co-conspirator' in a criminal investigation of a news leak, the Obama administration has moved beyond protecting government secrets to threatening fundamental freedoms of the press to gather news."

Even the lapdog press has its limits. Perhaps they recognize that after Fox is eliminated, they are next.

Food bowls are useless without reliable weather, you and the rest of the deniers of global warming are getting past the point of no return. All because stupid conservatives won't accept the science if it hurts their pockets. Well warming will do a lot more than burn a hole in your pocket.

House Speaker John A. Boehner on Thursday flatly ruled out chances of the House passing the Senate’s immigration bill, saying his chamber will debate its own bill instead.

The Ohio Republican and his top lieutenants in the party issued a joint statement that seemed designed to tamp down some of the momentum behind the Senate bill, which emerged from a committee on a bipartisan 13-5 vote this week, and to stake out a House GOP position.

“While we applaud the progress made by our Senate colleagues, there are numerous ways in which the House will approach the issue differently,” the Republican leaders said in their statement.“The House remains committed to fixing our broken immigration system, but we will not simply take up and accept the bill that is emerging in the Senate if it passes. Rather, through regular order, the House will work its will and produce its own legislation.”

Companies buy other companies and shut down the unprofitable portions every day.
For some companies, like Hostess Bakeries, the brand name and products are the only valuable assets. The physical facilities and employee contracts are liabilities that are larger than the assets.
Hence, bankruptcy.
In the past, bankruptcies where employees lost everything was more a taboo issue.

Today, it's a bargaining chip and a liability that disappears with something as simple as a merger.

Clearly, survival is not longer the objective.

Employees lose jobs (but not "everything") every day, like when the EPA issues adverse rulings that require plant shutdowns.

A company loses a large contract to a competitor and people lose their jobs, even though the company remains viable.

When were bankruptcies ever a "taboo issue"?

Some employers are avoiding Obamacare penalties by offering “skinny” insurance plans that provide workers with minimum coverage like preventive care but little else, including benefits to help cover hospitals stays.

The minimum coverage qualifies as acceptable under the new healthcare reform law, so benefit advisers and insurance brokers are pitching minimum plans nationally, reports the Wall Street Journal.

Employers who offer the plans are recognizing they can avoid a $2,000-per-worker penalty by doing so, even though the plans often don’t cover basics like surgery, X-rays or prenatal care, let alone hospitalization.

The employers could still face other penalties, but they expect them to cost less than the $2,000 per worker fine for opting out of Obamacare. As a result, the Journal reported, more companies are seeking minimum coverage plans helping to create what amounts to a new industry of basic insurance brokers and benefit administrators pushing the plans to clients.

Some of the low-benefit plans will cost employers only between $40 and $100 per employee monthly, quite a savings over the $2,000 fine, the Journal noted.

(CNN)-- Items taken from Trayvon Martin's cell phone -- including a text-message discussion of drug use and pictures of a gun and marijuana plants -- are among new details released Thursday by attorneys for the neighborhood watch volunteer accused of killing him without provocation 14 months ago.

The evidence, George Zimmerman's attorneys say, paints a different picture of the 17-year-old than the one portrayed by his family and supporters. Lead defense attorney Mark O'Mara says he will try to use the evidence if prosecutors attempt to attack Zimmerman's character during his trial on second-degree murder charges, set to begin next month.

Also Thursday, O'Mara filed motions in court. One asks for sanctions against the state for withholding evidence and for saying it didn't have more evidence when asked. The second requests that his client's trial be delayed.

Much of the new evidence disclosed Thursday in filings by Zimmerman's attorneys comes from Martin's cell phone, including photos showing a semiautomatic pistol and ammunition and small marijuana plants growing in pots.
Photos: Trayvon Martin evidence Photos: Trayvon Martin evidence

In other pictures, Martin is pictured making obscene gestures in an apparent self-portrait, as well pictures showing him with friends and in other settings.

The text messages include a conversation from November 2011 in which he appears to say his mother has kicked him out of the house after "da police caught me outta skool."

"So you just turning into a lil hoodlum," the person with whom he is texting says.

"Naw, I'm a gangsta," the text message read.

In other messages, text message exchanges appear to be discussing guns.

"U wanna share a .380 w/(blacked out)," one text message sent from Martin's phone reads.

The text messaging logs are also peppered with references to marijuana use.

"I got weed nd I get money Friday," a message sent from his phone reads.

"I hid m weed," another text sent from Martin's phone reads. "its wrapped."

Not sure what it's going to take. Things couldn't be much worse than Americans be targeted as enemies because they don't support this administration or want smaller government and less taxes.
Or fellow journalists being targeted by the Department of Justice for just doing their jobs.
The irony is that this administration did more leaking about the capture of bin Laden than any reporter gathering information for a news story.
The IRS scandal is just beginning and more information is starting to emerge about Fox News and Fox journalists being targeted. The exact breaking point for the liberal media is yet to be seen.
I was watching George Step-and-fetchit-opolis a few years back and they had a roundtable mix of Conservatives and Liberals but lo-and-behold there was Van Jones and I thought "These Liberal News Media are testing the waters! They are trying to introduce Marxists to the American Public as, in this case, a nice, clean-cut negro as they did with the Magic Negro.". Sho' nuff. It was Van Jones' comin' out party thrown by the Liberal Media. Dey was doin' the Magic Negro a favor.

Maybe they could slip a few nice, clean-cut Socialists and even Trotskyites onto the program to warm them up to Americans, I thought.

Anne Coulter was sitting next to Van Jones who was wearing a shit-eatin' grin. He immediately went after her and she quickly bit his tail. She didn't let go, either. Van Jones left that program with his tail so far between his legs that it stuck up his nostrils.

Later, he was forced out of the Boy Messiah's administration (Special Advisor for Green Jobs) because of his Marxist connections. Today, he still holds positions that ten-percenters all hold - "honorary", "distinguished", "Senior adviser for black studies", "visiting black professor", blah, blah, blah and puke, puke, puke... I'm surprised he didn't also get a Nobel Peace Prize, too.

The Liberal Media has and is working overtime to promote this President and his Socialist/Marxist agenda. It will be interesting, as you mentioned, how these same suckass sycophants will handle the trashing of their sacred First Amendment Rights beneath the heavy hand of their master.
