Barack Obama, our next President

How concerned should we be if we're not an investor or wealthy?
Just finished watching PBS Newshour.

A new study shows that people who even accidentally come into increased wealth begin behaving like they deserve it. And people who fall in wealth begin to act mote altruistic and generous toward others. Bottom line: rich people are azzholes and poor people are nice.

The source of this study?

UC Berkely.

Obama's Rotten Road Trip
First he mistook Britain’s chancellor of the exchequer for a soul singer, calling him Jeffrey Osborne instead of George. Then he explained to an audience in sectarian Belfast that, in the interests of religious harmony, Catholics ought not to have their own schools. Finally, sweating in the hot sun and without his TelePrompTer, he stumbled through a nearly incoherent speech at the Brandenburg Gate that almost nobody attended.
Throw in the cold shoulders from German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Russia President Vladimir Putin, the ridicule of the British press (“just another lame duck”) and the disappointment of the German media which had expected another walking-on-water moment like candidate Obama’s 2008 speech at the Victory Column, and it was not a successful foreign adventure for President Obama.

<quoted text>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...."
"Additionally, a recent national survey by the Pew Research Center recorded an eight percentage-point decline since last August in those saying abortion should be legal in all or most cases, from 54% to 46%. The percentage saying abortion should be legal in only a few or no cases increased from 41% to 44% over the same period. As a result, support for the two broad positions is now about even, sharply different from most polling on this question since 1995, when the majority has typically favored legality."

The increase in the 'no abortion' group has grown and the combination with the middle group means the majority favor no or limited abortions.

Not that hard to understand.

Also note-
" A new Gallup Poll, conducted May 7-10, finds 51% of Americans calling themselves "pro-life" on the issue of abortion and 42% "pro-choice." This is the first time a majority of U.S. adults have identified themselves as pro-life since Gallup began asking this question in 1995."

So, the opinions are shifting as noted in the survey.

<quoted text>I have facts-and aspartame was nothing but bad science,but anyone is free to use it. It was banned by the FDA twice.
It all starts in the mid 1960&#8242;s with a company called G.D. Searle. One of their chemists accidentally creates aspartame while trying to create a cure for stomach ulcers. Searle decides to put aspartame through a testing process which eventually leads to its approval by the FDA. Not long after, serious health effects begin to arise and G.D. Searle comes under fire for their testing practices. It is revealed that the testing process of Aspartame was among the worst the investigators had ever seen and that in fact the product was unsafe for use. Aspartame triggers the first criminal investigation of a manufacturer put into place by the FDA in 1977. By 1980 the FDA bans aspartame from use after having 3 independent scientists study the sweetener. It was determined that one main health effects was that it had a high chance of inducing brain tumors. At this point it was clear that aspartame was not fit to be used in foods and banned is where it stayed, but not for long.
Early in 1981 Searle Chairman Donald Rumsfeld (who is a former Secretary of Defense.. surprise surprise) vowed to “call in his markers,” to get it approved. January 21, 1981, the day after Ronald Reagan’s inauguration, Searle took the steps to re-apply aspartame’s approval for use by the FDA. Ronald Reagans’ new FDA commissioner Arthur Hayes Hull, Jr., appointed a 5-person Scientific Commission to review the board of inquiry’s decision. It did not take long for the panel to decide 3-2 in favor of maintaining the ban of aspartame. Hull then decided to appoint a 6th member to the board, which created a tie in the voting, 3-3. Hull then decided to personally break the tie and approve aspartame for use. Hull later left the FDA under allegations of impropriety, served briefly as Provost at New York Medical College, and then took a position with Burston-Marsteller. Burstone-Marstella is the chief public relations firm for both Monsanto and GD Searle. Since that time he has never spoken publicly about aspartame.
You *COULD* be correct on this but from what I've read doing just a cursory internet run....

* The internet is rife with Conspiracy Theories and Phony Science.

* The reasons that Aspartame was approved and that the FDA pulled its approval later was because of faulty testing that was brought to its attention and not because of any sickness attributed to Aspartame use.

But I'm no aficionado of Food Additive bunk and the such. Plus, Snopes seems to show that no evidence suggests a link between Aspartame usage and neurological damage.

Heck, I even looked up my name (Polish heritage) online and found that I'm a wealthy Brazilian Land Owner with links to Nazi Party members hiding out there after the Big War:].

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.

Then he argues with me for saying 59% of Americans want most abortions or all abortions to be illegal.

That is the only two other options left.

Gallop has been running abortion surveys for decades now. To claim at this point in time that somehow they are tainted is a little clueless.

I think bigotry in the Blue States has always been a dirty little secret. The finger pointing at Obama supporter Deen due to being a Southerner has brought out those who point out New England states even worse.
