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

Let's just do a "fact-based" test, shall we?
1. Under which presidents was the CRA created and expanded?
2. Are there more democrats including blacks and Hispanics in California or more republicans?
3. Do all democrats condone abortion?
4. Which party's leadership started more wars since the 1900s?
If you answered:
1. Carter and Clinton.
2. More democrats in California.
3. No.
4. The Democratic Party.
Then you passed.
lol! You finally got it right about CRA being created under Carter, son.

Here's an idea.
Obama should persuade his Communist buddies to live with the same environmental restrictions as American power producers.
Seems fair.
Hey clueless Galt,that's exactly what President Barack Obama has called for. "We limit the amount of toxic chemicals like mercury and sulfur and arsenic in our air or our water, but power plants can still dump unlimited amounts of carbon pollution into the air for free. That's not right, that's not safe, and it needs to stop," Obama said in a speech at Georgetown University. He said technological advances can help reduce pollution by capturing and storing carbon so it's not emitted into the air.

Obama said the United States can't go it alone. "I'm calling for an end of public financing for new coal plants overseas — unless they deploy carbon-capture technologies.... I urge other countries to join this effort," he said, adding that his administration will launch talks to help other countries build a low-carbon economy."

Scalia, in his dissent regarding SCOTUS's DOMA's decision, wrote:“We have no power to decide this case. And even if we did, we have no power under the Constitution to invalidate this democratically adopted legislation. The Court’s errors on both points spring forth from the same diseased root: an exalted conception of the role of this institution in America.”

...I like the part about the court's errors springing forth from the same diseased root - not just the exalted conception of gay marriage in America but, in my opinion, the liberal judges.

But some of you will be thrilled to know dozens of Republicans added their names to a paper known as a friend-of-the-court brief that argued that gay marriage promotes the conservative values of stability and mutual obligation.

Well part of Romney's plan was to add 2 trillion in defense spending, sure that may have produced a short term boost to the economy and then of course massive amounts of more debt. But then again the Republicans really do not give s sh!t about the debt. Not really.

Coming to a guard rail near you. A radar/camera device that is fitted into a section of guard rail. The device is turned on when a motion detector senses a speeding vehicle. As the vehicle passes by the camera takes a picture of the offending vehicle and sends it, along with the speed, to a policeman waiting further down the road. A cousin of the red light cameras look for these to appear on all major interstates and highways. Betting in the near future they will cut out the police and just send the owner of the vehicle a ticket in the mail.
Radar/Camera devices are also very helpful in sending important information on traffic congestion and clear traffic routes available to help speed first responders and emergency vehicles to where they might be needed to medically treat and save lives of accident victims.

LONDON (AP)-- Disappointing U.S. economic growth figures failed to alter the mood in financial markets Wednesday which has seen most stocks eke out solid gains for the second day running.

Despite signs that the recent correction in stock markets may have stabilized, investors remain cautious.

"It still feels as if markets are simply looking to catch their breath after all the excitement of the past week, and so it is perhaps unwise to suggest that two days of positive trading make a trend," said Chris Beauchamp, market analyst at IG.

I'd take his advise if I were you, Homer. Let's wait to bring out the cake in another month or so before we celebrate - or after the Feds completely stop the printing presses this time next year.

Dickhead is not a word that should come out of your mouth, given how frequently it goes in! I'm not going to go the rounds with you again. I've never been the type to pray on the weak or, kick a man woman while they're down. Live your life, I'm happy for you. It's sad tho, that this is the issue that you devoted your life to.

Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as "Obamacare," what is now called alternative medicine may become as accessible and widely accepted as conventional care.
The controversial act specifically mentions complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) and integrative healthcare in seven different sections throughout the law. This is thanks in part to the efforts of the Integrative Healthcare Policy Consortium, a coalition of major organizations started at the request of legislators in Washington devoted to the promotion of CAM and integrative healthcare in the U.S. It covers nothing I do to stay healthy.
