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

Hillary has no chance for the Democrat nomination.
Perhaps an independent Clinton-Bloomberg ticket.
Where do you think all the Obama fundraising money is going?
The best Democratic party ticket will be Hillary/Michelle 2016!:-D

It is unfortunate that farm policy gets confused with welfare (food stamps).
Both subjects deserve independent review,

Michelle maybe, Hillary never.

Obama will not give up power. Michelle would be the ideal surrogate, but might be a tough sell. Doesn't mean Obama won't try, and he has all the money, Hillary none.

Some are saying just the opposite will happen- deflation. I have heard rumors of an upcoming recession as being very possible.

For the Progressives here. The recession ended June 2009.

Lily would be going through some major changes if she knew Hannity was interviewing a large group of blacks right now on his show talking about why they switched to the republican party.

There's a shift going on within the black community. It's beginning to surface.

I know Tennessee Rep. Stephen Fincher(R) which he had no problem with Washington DC giving him $3.48 million of taxpayer dollars since 1999 for farm subsidies. Last year he reportedly received over $70,000.

God is opposed to food stamps? Letís try an evidence-based approach to hunger instead.

By Herb Silverman, Updated: June 12, 2013

Recently, I wrote about a Democratic Representative of Congress who used biblical arguments for doing something about global warming to counter a Republican Representativeís biblical arguments for doing nothing about global warming. I advocated for evidence-based decisions rather than faith-based decisions, which put me on the do-something side.

Now we have a Republican who used biblical arguments against food stamps to counter Democrats who used biblical arguments for food stamps. During a meeting of the House Agricultural Committee, Tennessee Rep. Stephen Fincher quoted from Matthew and Thessalonians that the poor will always be with us and that those unwilling to work shall not eat. Fincher acknowledged that caring for the hungry might be something for Christians to do, but not with government money. While I strongly support separation of church and state, I think thatís a rather bizarre framing of the concept. Private support for the least among us can be for religious or secular reasons, but I hope we will never have a government that ignores the least among us.

Unfortunately, biblical arguments have become so commonplace in politics that they are hardly worth noting. This one, however, has an added dimension. Although Fincher complained about Washington stealing taxpayer money from some and giving it to others, he had no problem with Washington giving him $3.48 million of taxpayer dollars since 1999 for farm subsidies. Last year he reportedly received over $70,000, which I assume he needed more than those low-income people he wants to cut from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

Rep. Fincher's stand on food stamps evokes cries of hypocrisy

I think too another recession is just like with FDR which is why Obama wants to tie Social Security to the CPI(Consumer Price Index) so when the economoy goes south so does Social Security.

Consumer price index

No problem there. But rising prices and inflation are still very concerning. If the economy is drastically affected, it will affect us all in some way or another.

I'm also concerned about husband's 401k - as many others are, I assume.

It's amazing how you lie son....

.... or fail to comprehend

.... or both!

I think it's both since you consistently work at being an idiot. From your article.....

"...Gallup's longest-running measure of abortion views, established in 1975, asks Americans if abortion should be legal in all circumstances, legal only under certain circumstances, or illegal in all circumstances. Since 2001, at least half of Americans have consistently chosen the middle position, saying abortion should be legal under certain circumstances, and the 52% saying this today is similar to the 50% in May 2011...."

401k's will definitely be affected just like in 2008 when the crisis hit and it will be worse this time because of the deficit which I believe it will be like Germany economy back in 1930's during because they were so heavily in debt and when the US called in on the debt the German economy really tanked and inflation exploded in Germany.
