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

It's not the government's job to create jobs.

Neither is it the government's job to inhibit jobs or freeze hiring by big government intrusion. That's where Obama gets into trouble. And why we're where we are.

Gramm Leach Bliley was the law that Clinton signed that wiped out Glass-Stengal.
Gramm, Leach & Bliley are all Republican.
The bill was passed in the Senate with all Republicans & 1 Democrat voting for it & 44 Democrats & no Republicans against it.
Clinton was against it but a compromise was reached.
To blame Clinton for not stopping Republicans is really dishonest. Like most of your posts.
Knee jerk republican blame everything on democrats.
Keeping people from voting will energize the democratic party.

Since you insist though, why don't you take a shot at explaining how having the government regulate personal relationships is "less government" regardless of what a mob says.
Look I'm against passing laws to comfort a certain groups securities but, I truly don't care who dates or sleeps with who. It's none of my business. In a world where there has to be laws & rules to govern society, we shouldn't be encouraging gay anything to kids. They're learning about sexual orientation far too young &, it's not the school or society's job to teach our children about such life altering events. Now on the same hand, if this country is based on freedom as we're told, the majority shouldn't have to accommodate the emotions of the minority. I know people will compare being gay to black slavery but, before you do, they're not on the same playing field. For one being black is not a choice. Here comes the argument! 2nd, blacks were targeted for just that being black. Gays aren't targeted for being gay by society in general. I for 1 don't see the big deal in giving them the same rights under a different title. If that's the big deal, it can be easily solved. Sorry for my rambling but, my concern is for the kids. They are 2 easily influenced!

If you are correct about climate change, which you are not, then changes by America will do absolutely no good if China and Russia and India and Korea and Vietnam and others do not do the same.
To think that their emissions of greenhouse gases would affect only their countries is naive.
A reduction is a reduction regardless if anyone else follows through.

This idea that we should wait until Russia & china do more is stupid.If the U.S. won't do anything, why should thy. Aren't we number one or two in greenhouse emissions?

Many smaller countries have put in measures already.

I realize Galt is old doesn't give a rat's patutie about future generations.

Gutting Voting Rights: Supreme Court Gives Racist Republicans Just What They Wanted

The Voting Rights Act has been doing precisely what it was intended to do for nearly fifty years. It was reauthorized in 2006 with overwhelming support in congress (98-0 in the senate, 390-33 in the House) and signed by George W. Bush. For the Court to overturn the will of the people in this regard tags them as just the sort of activist jurists that right-wingers usually assail. The Act’s usefulness was demonstrated just last year when numerous localities tried, but failed, to implement voter suppression schemes.

LOL. In case you haven't noticed, Christie himself has said he is even more "shocked" by some of the crazy "stuff" Republicans bring to the floor of Congress than Democrats. He's one of those new image Republicans I mentioned. That is what it will take to revive the GOP....a new image, new ideas and a willingness to compromise. If the Republicans continue down their obstructionist path, they are dead in the water.
Well the good old puritans of blue state pitch fork and torch bearing colonialville need not worry-they've filled Kerry's O'Kennedy moss covered dark age seat with another antiquated jackboot licking partisan poliTical demoncRat of old skewl CRONYism..for the time being anyway.

And DON'T EVEN try and go there with ANY "you mention" Christie garbage.

Because I've already BEEN THERE-actually walking the walk and singing that tune for YEARS....in case you haven't been posting here long enough to have seen enough of it to figure it out.

The times they are a changin'...and SOME of us are just waiting for the REST of the nation to catch up and grow some actual independent, ethical braincells again and say SCREW the disgusting pandering and puhphoniess of petty, bootlicking political partisan "correct(less)ness". ..and vote for what's best FOR this nation again-and NOT for anything else that bears against it!!!!

Democratic Jersey mayors are endorsing Chris Christie for re-election.

Sea Bright Mayor Dina Long threw her support behind Christie on Wednesday, touting his leadership in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy and saying she has no time for partisan politics while trying to rebuild her town, which was heavily damaged by the storm.

“There is no time for Republicans and Democrats to bash each other in the name of party politics. I don’t want to spend the next six months being coy,” she said during the endorsement announcement in Sea Bright.

Long is the second Democratic mayor, after Harrison’s Raymond McDonough, to endorse Christie for re-election.( alan.com LA 6/26/2013)

The Texas anti-abortion bill, which threatened to close nearly all of the abortion clinics in the state and prompted an 11-hour filibuster by state Sen. Wendy Davis (D), is dead, The Austin American-Statesman reported.

Lawmakers had to vote on Senate Bill 5 before the special session's end at 12 a.m. local time. However, more than 400 protesters halted the proceedings 15 minutes before the roll call could be completed with what they called "a people's filibuster," The Associated Press reported.

The crowd of demonstrators in the capitol cried "Shame! Shame!" when Davis' filibuster was halted by Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, who ruled that her discussion of mandatory ultrasound testing was off-topic. Then the protesters roared after state Sen. Leticia Van De Putte asked, "At what point must a female senator raise her hand or her voice to be recognized over her male colleagues?”

Their cries continued to echo inside the chamber -- and over a livestream watched by thousands around the world -- until after the midnight deadline passed.

Although some Republican lawmakers later claimed the bill had passed in time, Democrats denied that the vote was completed before the clock ran out on the session.

A time stamp showing the vote completed after midnight was the deciding factor.“This will not become law,” Sen. John Whitmire (D), told The Austin American-Statesman.

it's much easier for those who hate anyone who is different from them to try to keep those folks from voting rather than trying to get them to vote for a hater.

no big deal though. it just gives conservatives one more way to put another nail in the coffin of the GOP.

Again, you are using smoke and mirrors to make your point. Employees do not have 100% coverage even if enrolled in an HMO plan. When they retire, their employer no longer contributes anything toward their insurance premiums so the "sticker shock" will be there whether Medicare is or not.
Now, people do not have to have supplemental insurance. It is an OPTION for those retirees who do not wish to enroll in an HMO plan and don't want to bother with fees for office visits, etc. Got it? It is an OPTION ONLY for those who want 100% coverage. Something they never had under their employer's plan. If they want a better plan, they can pay for it. Nothing wrong with that.
YOu really showed your "FWEERIDER" entitle_Mental cluelessness on that.

Even WITH optional additional coverages- for many WORKING class retirees--there is still --NO such thing as "100 percent coverage" as they STILL PAY co-pays on everything from scripts to office visits and any procedures as well.

The WORKING class has PAID enough-it's time for the FWEERIDING nothing but take, take, take from OTHERS hard earned tax dollars givverment draining lemmings to be CAPPED and contribute to what they continually MOOCH from others themselves!!!!!!!!
