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

This is Flack b;laming the Democrats for the Bush recession.
Signed into Law May25th.
Went into effect July 26th.
That .70 cents an hour raise.
less than two months later Bush tells us we are on the verge of a financial meltdown & the worst recession in 80 years starts in December.
Yep that minimum wage did it.
Nor the unfunded Bush Tax cuts
Not record Earmarks
Not doubling the debt
Not two quagmire unfunded wars
Not the unfunded part D expansion to Medicare.
It was that GD .70 cents an hour raise to the minimum wage.
I realize you can't understand what you read but even your libtard ass should be able to understand 'It was a part of the 08 crash'.

The ratio of Republicans to Democrats who supported F&F and were on their payroll is miniscule in comparison.
It was a Republican Congressional hearing in 2004 that tried to rein in F&F. Every single Democrat was outraged.
An attempt at another tax cut which worked the first time was too late the second time when the house of cards had already collapsed.
still doesn't explain how the democrats, who had no control over anything, somehow let Bush's buddies at F&F screw the pooch.

and yes, his buddies. Franklin Raines evidently had a free pass to the Oval Office.

"Abortion RIGHTS supporters" would be accurate. Not many people are real supportive of the act of having an abortion, most view it as a trauma.
I'm not necessarily like them, I'm all for voluntary abortion and even voluntary sterilization. As long as there's no coercion involved I think most people who seek an abortion are providing a public service and are looking out for the best interests of an unwanted child.
Those who earn their living providing abortions are "abortion supporters."

Galt agrees with you about the benefits of abortion, but more from the viewpoint of the benefit to society rather than the best interests of the child.

The infant is not a fetus if it can survive on it's own. Even that's arguable. Why is a murderer charged with double homicide when he kills a pregnant mother?
Same reason they'd be charged if someone physically forced a woman to have an abortion.

nice argument, but i'm pretty sure the right wing nutjobs have been calling birth control the same as an abortion.
so carol...when did you become a liberal?
The percentage of people who consider birth control the same as abortion is more than likely in the one to low two-digit range.

Even devout Catholics use birth control.

Hope that's not the best argument you have.

Do they actually require purchase of a city sticker to park in your own drive or garage?
Incredible!
Yep-if you have any pick-up truck or van. You cannot EVER park on the street. But you have to have a city sticker at the cost of 65 dollars to park in your garage or drive. They have other crazy laws too: G-d forbid if your vehicle needs washed...Outdoor water restrictions are in effect from May 15 through September 15. Residents may use water outdoors only on even or odd-numbered calendar days, corresponding with the last digit of their house number. Zero is considered an even number. Outdoor water use includes use on lawns, gardens, trees, shrubs and for washing vehicles.

Supreme Court Guts The Voting Rights Act
The decision frees up those jurisdictions to change their voting laws without supervision. But the federal government still has the power to target a voting law in court, after it is passed, if it is suspected of having a discriminatory effect on a particular racial group.

now it's just a matter of which southern state gets hit with a federal lawsuit.
Sounds like you advocate targeting southern states, just as the IRS targeted conservative groups.

Intrusive government is intrusive government.
So, Galt is considering anarchism as the best option. You do know that Big Corporations and large too-big-to-fail Wall Street Banks will have to be broken down too. The conservative Chicago School of laissez-faire Economics led by Milton Friedman and Friedrich Hayek once proposed a socialist solution to the too-big-to-fail dilemma of faulty big banks and corporations--nationalize them and protect the rest of the free market for the other independent smaller businesses competing fairly within the law.

There is no reason why Illinois should not have a healthy economy, except for the City of Chicago sucking the state dry.

So, Mitt Romney was an 'abortion supporter', but denied it. Does that make Romney a liar?

Illinois is no longer the "Land of Lincoln", now its the "Land Where Obama Launched His Political Career Therefore it is Dead to us"

They just haven't been able to fit it onto the license plates yet.

This is how stupid hyperpartisanship is.

She lied and is also grossly incompetent. She DID get the requests for more security in Libya - which has been proven - and she DID deny ever having seen them. That's her friggin' job to see requests for help from an embassy and protect it!

That whole debacle makes me extremely angry.

We STILL have no answers whatsoever as to why this happened and who is responsible. This president ALWAYS promises answers but NEVER delivers.

Hope that's not the best argument you have.
It is members of your party that have called Plan B (which is a birth control pill); the "abortion pill", didn't Mitt Romney say that?
At the same time that he was giving a speach to fundraisers; one of whom was the maker of Plan B? That Mitt had invested in?
You rightwingers just throw out any kind of b/s to see if it sticks, knowing that the constituents aren't the sharpest pencils in the box.

Funny that when I asked before what legislation the Democrats passed in the first 9 months of 2007 that created this recession, I believe it was you that replied the minimum wage increase.

To think that this 70 cent raise that went into effect at the end of July played a part is just plain stupid.

What part would you assign to it?
