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

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.”
This is good.
Yeah

This is from November 2012

"A short documentary “Rampant INjustice Exposes Federal Abuse of Power” was released late last night by Jan Morgan of JanMorganMedia shows that between 2009 and 2011, the blatant trampling of the Constitutional rights of Americans during white collar crime investigations by the Department of Justice and the Criminal Investigation Division of the Internal Revenue Service, increased substantially, under the Obama administration.During that period, IRS audits against small businessesincreased 32%.Among hundreds of businesses raided by the IRS and Department of Justice, using paramilitary tactics, the documentary profiles such known companies as Mountain Pure Water Bottling Company and Duncan Outdoors, Inc., both situated in Arkansas and Gibson Guitar located in Tennessee."

Interesting considering what we know now.

The Liberal mindset is stuck hard and fast to the idea of guarantees in Life. The Government is Mother. This sort of thinking is a sickness.

An entrepreneur is motivated and takes on the reality of risk as a Life Challenge to be won whereas the Liberal, whose mind has been stuffed with Socialist propaganda, believes that the government should guarantee them everything from cradle to grave. How? By sucking from that entrepreneur!

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.
Is this what the Magic Negro meant when he bragged about how Obamacare would help reduce medical costs?

(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."
I wonder how much coaching Eric Racist Holder did when he went down there to fan the racial flames on the Magic Negro's orders.

Probably one helluva a lot.

"Tea party vs. old guard in GOP Senate rift
Associated PressBy ANDREW TAYLOR and CHARLES BABINGTON | Associated Press – 6 hrs ago

WASHINGTON (AP)— A long-simmering feud between establishment Republicans and tea partyers broke into full view Thursday, with Sen. John McCain accusing younger colleagues of overplaying their hands and tempting Democrats to change Senate rules that protect the minority party.

Tactics for dealing with the government's budget and debt became the latest quarrel In a string of them between McCain —sometimes joined by other traditionalist Republicans —and tea party champions such as Ted Cruz of Texas, Rand Paul of Kentucky, Mike Lee of Utah and Marco Rubio of Florida.

Those four won Senate seats by defying the party establishment, and are shaking up the tradition-bound Senate with no-compromise, no-apology stands on key issues like debt and deficits, government spending and the use of drones in the war on terrorism.

McCain himself has defied Republican orthodoxy at times. But he was the party's 2008 presidential nominee, and he now is among those who say a minority party will accomplish little in the Senate if it can't find ways to cut deals with the majority...."

Those who want the government to steal from others to give to them love Obama. Unfortunately, there are too many of these people. Just like in Venezuela.

Just out of curiosity, what do you consider to be a straight down the middle, factual news source?

You are close to the truth, but lost in your obsession with one news outlet.

Galt hates Obama for what he is, which is a leftist radical who wants to change America into a Socialist economy. So, what he does on any particular day or any particular issue is irrelevant, because his overall objective is completely unacceptable.

No.

ObamaKare was designed to fail so that it could be replaced by a system under total control of the government.

So far, doctors, hospitals, drug companies, and insurance companies have cooperated so as not to anger the beast, refusing to acknowledge that they were already climbing on the boxcars headed to the camps.

One of the four Senators mentioned is likely to be the candidate in 2016.

McCain is an old fool who fails to recognize that one cannot make a deal with the Devil.
