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

Now they've made it legal for corporations, both foreign and domestic, to not only influence politics, but hide from the people on what they're doing.
So don't complain. Non cons didn't want this... conservatives did!
Like THAT hasn't been going on for decades. Just that NOW the yewneeyun propoganda now has advesaries in the polTICal arenas-hail the SUPER PACS!

S'all "that's awright, it's all goodduh" though, because absolute power corrupts absolutely, and the playing fields needed some leveling out anywa, as the wafting STENCHes of rampant corruption have been getting pretty FOUL.

Might as well be fair with the foulness!

Are we supposed to ignore that?
Based upon the recent incidents in Benghazi and Boston, what we've heard about prior to, and how the "prior to" time frame of keeping eyes out for such and actually doing something to deter such-one can only conclude--

Yes, that is what the current administration would prefer, that we "ignore" black and red flags waving.

<quoted text> The Obama Administration was ready and eager from day one of re-election to join the republicans on meaningful tax reform ,but it was republicans who backed off , claimed tax reform wasn't necessary because Obama already got his tax raise for the wealthy then rushed into making a embarrassing scene of fussing over phony "scandals" Yeah, there's a rotten example to show the rest of the world.
That means reform in other areas too. Like maybe in the EIC and tax return areas-as in any returns calculated to go to people already living OFF the system, would be prorated and adjusted to allow for some returns back INTO the system, rather than just more draining of it.
That, and of of course, tightening up some of the BS loopholes, so corporate entities might actually have to contribute honestly at reasonable and fair levels again.

Such a downhill slide in ethics over the past 35-40 years. Effort would be required from BOTH sides of those aisles however, for this nation to see better again though.

Somebody has to tell you this. It might as well be me. You are much too gullible for your own good.
If this was just a rightwing phony scandal, democrats wouldn't be condemning it as loudly and, in some cases, even more loudly than conservatives.
Neither would 60% of Americans say the GOP is handling the scandals appropriately.
More hearings are scheduled next week and the weeks following with bigger fish having to testify under oath. More whistleblowers are also expected to emerge in the ensuing weeks.
This is just the beginning.
Wrong Carol! I rely on actual facts like no conservative group was denied tax exempt status.
Facts like it's the job of that division is in fact to check out whether or not an organization seeking a 501(c)(4) status actually qualifies for it.
I'm not interested in the theatrics from either side.

Your sanctity of life only extends to an unborn fetus. It certainly doesn't extend to those who've died because they couldn't get medical care. it doesn't extend to those who've died because big insurance refused to cover treatment or dropped them when they became ill. It doesn't bother you that the US has a higher infant mortality rate than any other major industrial nation and even Cuba.
Just when have anyone's right to worship been suppressed Carol? Any citizen in this country can believe and worship in whatever manner they want or not participate in religion at all. You can put a religious display in your front yard or on church property or any private property for that matter but not on property that is owned by and supported by taxpayers to advance your own particular beliefs.
Marriage is at its core a civil contract that confers obligations and rights to those that choose to enter into it. All citizens are entitled to these rights under the 14th Amendment to the Constitution. You don't have the right to deny people rights based on your own personal beliefs.
Let's face it Carol, all major media outlets are corporate owned and will slant news to benefit their owners. For a Foxbot like you to demand fair-minded coverage is a laugh. Fox has been the propaganda arm of the GOP for years.
Just how does either the government manage your personal affairs Carol? It certainly doesn't manage mine. I do have to follow the rules such as speed limits, pay what I owe in taxes and not do anything that adversely affects other people but aside from that you and I are pretty much free do whatever we want. You for instance are perfectly free to spew the nonsense that you do every day and I am free to dispute you on it.
No one is proposing anything that would prevent a law abiding citizen to own a firearm Carol but we should make it a lot harder for criminals and those judged to be mentally unstable to get them. That being said this whole idea that a gun in the home makes it safer is ridiculous. A gun in the home is used exponentially more often to kill a family member than to thwart an intruder.
You're the one who should grow a brain Carol, all the nonsense is coming from you.
You just don't get it. You probably never will.

There is a more common sense approach to making health care costs more affordable and providing care to the truly needy at the same time without the IRS knowing if you need a colonoscopy.

You are handing over your private and personal medical information to the government and the IRS on a silver platter.

How many lemons have you bought in the past?

No surprise a communist would say that. The goal of communism is to take the power from the people and put it in the hands of a few to make it easier to control the powerless...all in the name of "fairness" and the "common good".

Wolves in sheep's clothing. Some people are born suckers and fall for any hype. They always buy the lemons they're being sold without ever questioning the motive behind the hype.

The same people never learn from the same mistakes made in the past - and smooth-talking salesmen see them coming a mile away.

It's actually kind of sad...going through life that clueless to be taken advantage of so easily...

...considering Obama and his Chicago thugs are the smooth-talking salesmen in this case. Some of the best con men come across as the most sincere and trusting.

The rule of thumb is never trust anyone who has something to gain by your naivety without verifying their motives and credentials.

Don't call republicans in Congress. They're trying to pass a bill to make you pay more in student fees. "Yesterday, House Republicans passed a bill making student loans more expensive. You read that right, more expensive.

That's just crazy.

More than ever, Americans need a college degree to find a job. And Republicans just made it even more difficult. Meanwhile, the Wall Street corporations and the big banks who helped crash this economy are being handed sweetheart deals.

Call your Senators today and ask them to support the Elizabeth Warren Student Loan Plan.

Unless the Senate takes action, student loan rates are set to jump dramatically on July 1st, while the big banks are handed money at an almost 900% discount." Check this out: http://www.opednews.com/Diary/Yesterday-House...

Yes, Jean from Queens is right.

Americans desperately want to surrender their privacy and all decisions about their lives to an overbearing federal government. They want to surrender their culture to the point where the national language is Spanish and the national religion is Islam. They want the federal government to supply their food (vegan only), housing (apartments only), transportation (buses only). and medical care (public clinics only).

Then Jean from Queens will be happy.

Indeed ;'trust but verify'. Van Jones may have said big government is better, but George W Bush and Ronald reagan actually did it. Growth in Government were largest in those two republican administrations. Look it up! "In modern history, Ronald Reagan oversaw the largest number of debt ceiling increases, and George W. Bush approved a near doubling of the borrowing cap during his two terms in office.

Here's a look at the debt ceiling under modern U.S. presidents."...[1. Debt Ceiling Under Obama
"President Barack Obama"Alex Wong / Getty Images

The debt ceiling has been raised on three occasions under President Barack Obama. The debt ceiling was $11.315 trillion when the Democrat was sworn into office in January 2009 and increased by nearly $3 trillion or 26 percent by summer 2011, to $14.294 trillion.][2. Debt Ceiling Under Bush43 The debt ceiling was raised on seven occasions during President George W. Bush's two terms in office, from $5.95 trillion in 2001 to nearly double that,$11.315 trillion, in 2009 - an increase of $5.365 trillion or 90 percent.][5. Debt Ceiling Under Reagan [ The debt ceiling was raised on 17 occasions under President Ronald Reagan, nearly tripling from $935.1 billion to $2.8 trillion.] Thus, George W Bush squandered away economic surplus achieved by the Clinton Administration and Reagan wasted the huge 'peace dividend' from the ending of the Cold War.
