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 ...

Well....there's his vigorous support for the killing of late term abortion survivors. You'd think liberals would be crowing about that! I wonder why they don't?
I have news, killing of babies outside the womb was already illegal when Obama voted no on the typical anti-abortion efforts to curb abortions through getting certain terminology in the law.

As for Black political power, the Obama brand relegated the most dispossessed people to cheerleading. It inflated the notion that Blacks need to seek electoral and corporate power, not their own self-determination, in order to change their conditions. After all, he is “one of us”, right? The Obama brand painted itself as Martin Luther King’s dream realized, an eerily slick way of stating the sheer presence of Obama as POTUS would end the progressive and radical politics Black people have espoused since their enslavement by European colonizers. Purchasing Obama was intentionally meant to satisfy any craving for liberation Black people might have now or in the future.

Because imperialists cannot rely on force alone to maintain exploitation, the exploited must be taught to work in solidarity with their masters’ interests. Obama was a useful tool in cementing the popular treatment of American presidents as brands: products to be consumed. This way of looking at politics is so pervasive precisely because the American electoral system serves the ruling and privileged classes at the expense of everyone else. It is a game for them every four years. It is a farce for us every year. Such a system cannot sustain itself without trust from its populous. The Bush administration struck fear in the eyes of the elites who desperately needed the best product possible to ensure they were once again trusted to pillage and plunder the earth’s human and natural life. And they found a gem in Barack Obama.

“President Barack Obama is the American ruling class’s most valuable product to date.”

Who else would be able to do what the Obama administration has done with impunity? The Obama team wasted no time waging new wars across the globe while simultaneously escalating the Iraq and Afghanistan debacles. They used NATO to overthrow the independent government in Libya in a racist, genocidal coup.

Donald Trump appeared on Monday's "Fox & Friends" and raged against National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden.
Snowden fled from Hong Kong to Russia over the weekend, his final destination unclear. He did not board a plane from Moscow to Havana on Monday, as some had expected. The New York Times reported that Snowden's absence from the plane headed to Cuba raised questions about whether the former NSA contractor had been detained by the Russian government.
Trump discussed Snowden's disappearance and said that spies "in the old days used to be executed." He said that authorities needed to find Snowden, arguing that the NSA leaker could provide other governments with classified information about U.S. surveillance programs.
"This guy is a bad guy," Trump said. "You know there is still a thing called execution. You really have thousands of people with access to the kind of material like this. We’re not going to have a country any longer."

It seems that no amount of Bush-on-steroids policy and politics can enrage the popular masses of America. Even when signs of resistance emerge, like in Occupy Wall Street, Barack Obama escapes blame. American progressives, liberals, and Black misleaders will defend Obama as the “lesser-evil” in comparison to the GOP and it doesn’t matter one bit what he does. Many voters felt compelled to use the “lesser-evil” excuse in the 2012 election for a variety of reasons, all of which disregard what he has wrought. This is what makes him so valuable to those who have shaped and branded his legacy: the ruling oligarchs and elites of Wall Street, multinational corporations, the corporate media, and the opportunist Black misleaders and white liberals who defend him at all costs.

It is year five of their brand’s collective abuse and we are tossing and turning in our slumber. Eventually, products wear out and consumers become dissatisfied with their current level of function or value. But it will not be enough to simply cease from believing that the Obama Administration contributed anything positive to the interests of anyone but those in power. Although Obama is branded as a commodity, he is a politician in the flesh. Politicians act in the interest of the powerful in a capitalist state. We should treat them as such.

So that's why bushi boy invaded iraq and killed 4,400+ American soldiers for nothing.
Iraqis vote for their own leaders and Saddam didn't become Obama's problem. He's having a hard enough time dealing with Iranians protesting in the streets against their oppressive regime and the Muslim Brotherhood killing Christians in Egypt and has no idea what to do in Syria. Saddam would have certainly taken advantage of this weak link.

But babies fighting for their lives after surviving an abortion and then being denied medical attention...well, Obama seemed to think that as long as it was supposed to die anyway, voting to allow physicians to provide medical care wasn't really necessary.

Voting present on that kind of bill was the same as voting no.

Oh, yes he did.

Assata Shakur, a Black liberation exiled freedom fighter, is a most wanted terrorist as of this calendar year. The financial elites responsible for the largest transfer of wealth to the top 1 percent of the population from the 99 percent receives trillions in bailouts while people are losing their homes and jobs in high numbers. Even in the midst of staggering levels of poverty and unemployment for all and Black people especially, public schools are being turned over for profit and Medicare, Social Security, and Medicaid are on the chopping block. Healthcare costs continue to soar. Obamacare does more for the profits of big pharmaceuticals and insurance companies than it does to expand coverage to Americans. Civil liberties have been eroded to dust with the passing of the National Defense Authorization Act and the re-authorizing of the Patriot Act. The Patriot Act is now under scrutiny after the NSA was caught spying on the private lives of US citizens.

Hehe!- Union Free Company!

Hostess is betting on a sweet comeback for Twinkies when they return to shelves next month.

The company that went bankrupt after an acrimonious fight with its unionized workers last year is back up and running under new owners and a leaner structure. It says it plans to have Twinkies and other snack cakes back on shelves starting July 15.

Stock market takes another dive today wiping out its gains in May and June.
How concerned should we be if we're not an investor or wealthy?
You seem to forget that we went through the same thing in October and the market went back up again.
There's some concerns over China which we don't have any control over and the Fed is hinting that they may cut back on bond buying in anticipation of continued economic recovery. There's also the normal profit taking that occurs when the market hits highs.

And it's clear the DR plan was insufficient
"DR" = Dominican Republic?

Doesn't really work the way you're thinking, generated electricity goes onto the grid for distribution.

No this wasn't planned for but was accounted for in design. Problem was the earthquake was beyond the design basis by a factor of around 10 (that's 10 times more powerful than the plant was designed to withstand) and the tsunami was 3-4 meters above design basis. You can't base designs on theoretical worst-case-in-history events.
