On the 'Today Show' this morning they discussed the real potential for another housing bubble. The prices in certain areas of the country are inflated as some individuals are buying up a lot of the houses hoping to flip for higher prices and we have Obama trying to crank up pressure to loan to unqualified buyers.
Bad enough it happened the first. Real bad that there is a repeat of the behaviors that caused it so close on the heels of the first bubble burst. Now that is DUMB
Libs are sooooooooo stupid.

Now Obama, smart enough to understand that you people are brainwashed by the likes of Rush Limbaugh& isn't afraid to point it out. If you don't agree with his guidance, play partisan politics, that's Limbaugh's philosophy &, you suckers bite every time hook, line, & sinker. Obama was elected by the people, to work for the people, so that's what he does. Bush was no more than a retarded tyrant dictator. He didn't give a damn about what the people wanted & lead us right off the cliff. The smart people may have fell off but, you fools jumped off head first & still defend his self admitted incompetence!
Do you excel at anything other than hindsight and ignorance? Remember a little thing called 9/11 ?

It's funny but the left has come to accept conservatives and the tea party wanting less bureaucracy/smaller government as being somehow malicious or threatening - that government can somehow save us all from ourselves.
Bureaucracy was once an undesirable word associated with red tape, confusion and more problems.
Now, it would seem, it's backwards. The left sees bureaucracy going hand-in-hand with big government as a good thing. They must not see the confusion and problems it causes by it's very size - so obese it is handicapped in performing it's usual functions.
So when did bureacracy and big government and surrendering to it become so desirable?
I just don't get it.
Pretty ironic, the radical anti government hippies from the 60's and seventies have done a 180 degree turn from the old "f the man" days. Of course they'll change they're hypocritical tune once the repubs are back in control, then big government will be bad again.

Would you rather do away with all of them?
Or is it fair only one side who is the opposition of those in power be targeted and not the other side?
Funny. You don't even comment on the NAACP threat.

Like I said, must be something cons accept since they alreadt set the standard.

I guess I have higher standards than you people, eh? History sort of supports that position, doesn't it?

Did you ever answer my question?

Is it fair only one side who is the opposition to those in power be targeted by the IRS and not the other side?

After we established there are political groups on the left who have tax exemption status, I mean.

Some Jewish organizations were apparently also targeted. Why do you suppose the IRS targeted them too?

It's just going to cause a lot more confusion.

Think that was the plan. "Overwhelm the system."

Overwhelming the U.S. economy creating systemic failure, economic crisis and social chaos would destroy capitalism. That was the plan of Cloward & Piven, professors at Columbia University, who wanted to socialize America.

Obama is a good student if nothing else.

Here's the whole article:
NAACP Official: Obama Campaign Staffer Threatened Me: CHICAGO (CBS)— The President of the South Suburban Branch of the NAACP alleges a director of the re-election campaign of Barack Obama has threatened and intimidated him because he doesn’t support the president.

WBBM Newsradio’s Mike Krauser has the exclusive story.

LISTEN: WBBM Newsradio’s Mike Krauser Reports
http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2012/10/04/naacp-...

David Lowery says he believes he was threatened during a phone conversation with Louis Raymond, the Illinois political director for Obama for America.

Lowery says he doesn’t personally support the president because he’s not addressing issues important to the black community. He said he was explaining that to Raymond when the Obama campaign official told him,“You know what? I know everything about you.”

Lowery says Raymond added,“We’ve been watching you, and since you don’t support Obama, we’ll deal with you,” before hanging up.

Sure sounds like the same O'bama did to conservatives and Jewish groups that didn't support him.

It's strangely ironic how those missing front teeth of yours also somehow reflect the missing pieces inside of your pre-frontal lobes, your missing personality and the gaps in your cognizance.

Bizarre, but you are a 'complete' jerk in this sense.
