This is an Oldie for Goodie, when John Conyers was asked about Obamacare did you and your Colleagues read this CRAP.“What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?” Today without hesitation/doubt Obamacare is a Total Disaster!!

Of course I know it's a derogatory word. Just wonder why blacks don't.
Paula Deen claims she used that word 30 years ago and only one time after being robbed at gunpoint by an employee.
So she should lose everything?
Have Americans become so thin-skinned and overly sensitive?


IMO, Paula Deen is a liar. All one has to do is read the actual court case to come to that conclusion. It really isn't about her use of the N-word. It is so much more. The fact that she condoned the disgusting behavior of her brother and dismisses it because he is "a good man", makes her "enterprise" guilty. The laws are very clear. Allegedly, her "enterprise" violated the law. If her "enterprise" is found guilty, it doesn't mean she will lose everything. She, her brother and her sons will just have to do with less until things calm down...and they will.

From her deposition:

"My brother and I have had conversations. My brother is not a bad person. Do humans behave inappropriately? At times, yes. I don't know one person that has not. My brother is a good man. Have we told jokes? Have we said things that we should not have said, that -- yes, we all have. We all have done that, every one of us.
.....I can't, myself, determine what offends another person."

Paula Deen is only crying crocodile tears because she sees her empire crumbling and she is terribly embarrassed by her behavior. Guess she should have thought of that before denying black workers the right to use customer bathrooms while not setting down the same rule for white workers.

You're an idiot, Ed.

I live in an Italian neighborhood. The Italians poke fun at each other and call each other 'dumb dagos'. If a non Italian says it, it's fighting words.

And you're too stupid to see that all ethnic groups do the same.

I see Frenchmen call each other 'frogs'. It's an inside joke, but from the outside, it's an insult. Same with Portugese, Polish, etc.

Figures you'd be too stupid to pick up on such social banter.

But, just to make it clear you're fullofshit, as well as your refernces, let's take a look at your "proof" from Factcheck:

"I remember often eating breakfast with Barack at Tom’s Restaurant on Broadway. Occasionally we went to The West End for beers. We enjoyed exploring museums such as the Guggenheim, the Met and the American Museum of Natural History, and browsing in bookstores such as the Strand and the Barnes & Noble opposite Columbia. We both liked taking long walks down Broadway on a Sunday afternoon, and listening to the silence of Central Park after a big snow. I also remember jogging the loop around Central Park with Barack."

Phil Boerner was never in any class with Obama.
Phil Boerner never saw Obama on the campus of Columbia.

What you referenced has no reference whatsoever to Obama ever even being on the campus at Columbia, let alone attending classes there.

Let's go over this again:

NOBODY IN OBAMA'S CLASS AT COLUMBIA EVER MET HIM.

Hyde Park on Hudson was a good film?
Yes, it was. But I couldn't help coming away from the movie without asking myself: Why is that Democratic presidents can't seem to keep their pants zipped and Republican presidents can?

Not only did FDR have one mistress but three.

FDR, JFK and Clinton just couldn't seem to be faithful to their wives. Reagan, G.H.W. Bush and GWB all could.

What's up with that? Some people would say "if unfaithful in small things, then unfaithful in big things". What say you?

Obama at least broke the cycle of democrats and womanizing. As far as we know. He's just unfaithful to the country.

It IS the culture.
I do know in his first attempt at publishing Journeys in Black and White which was ultimately shelved in place of Dreams of My Father, his biographical information stated he was born in Kenya.

Posted it the other day. Apparently, even if the publisher writes the biographies, it's usually approved by the author.

Why would even a publisher print an author's birthplace so erroneously?

What struck me the most in the video was the stark contrast in each president's voice from FDR to GWB and their convictions about this country - who we are and what we stand for - compared to the present day president.
FDR could have speaking to America today in his First Inaugural Address:
"This great Nation will endure as it has endured, will revive and will prosper. So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself — nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance."
In our times, it means we cannot shrink in the face of despotism by those who now hold the power over us and we cannot surrender our freedoms into the hands of the few.
May sound a bit overdramatic but we're living in pretty overdramatic times.

Or, ask Master P, although he grew up in New Orleans but was a frequent visitor to where I was born.
I'm sure you know who these references are.
Like you can even come close to what I know about urban violence and how to get around in a place where the bullet-riddled corpses are stacked to the rafters every weekend.
You're an idiot... and a liar.
This is completely stupid. Your comparing your street life to mines when you have none. Fuck Snoop Dogg and Master P. They're rappers! Plenty of people grow up in harsh conditions but never play a part in it. I'm talking bout people that were in the streets since Snoop Dogg came out in 1990 or whatever. When I say in the streets, I don't mean homeless! You think cuz you lived near a violent place, that makes you an expert. I grew up in the projects. My little bro just came home yesterday, & my older Bro just got sentenced to a 10 with a 3 for 2 gun charges from 2 separate raids. What are you talking about Snoop Dogg & Master P? Your talking bout somebody else life, I live this.You never shot a gun at anything but a non human target. Like said, thus is completely stupid!

The problem for this president is credibility.
It's impossible to get back the people's trust once it's been violated.
He lied to us and marginalized his political enemies too many times.
Why should anyone with an "R" by their name trust this president or his Attorney General when even some with a "D" by their name have questioned their motives?
That would work if your Paula Deen racism hadn't begun in Jan. 2009.

You're the one with no credibillity.

You predicted Obamacare would never pass.

You predicted the Supreme Court would strike down Obamacare.

You predicted Obama would not be re-elected.

You've been hating the black man since he was elected, beating the slut Palin into the ground.

Another 17 months before the next election...

With the already "changes we can believe in" transpiring within the past six months, what else can we look forward to over the next year and a half?

Considering the mind boggling corruption that is going on under all of our noses but just under the surface, I'm beginning to believe it may be all over but the cryin'.

When is Obama going to start creating those promised jobs? Or is part of the plan to keep us dependent on the government? Distributing the wealth sounds much more appealing when enough people are unemployed. Someone please tell me where I'm wrong.

You seem to think anyone here actually believes Obama has anything at all to do in government. He's a fraud being propped up to make it appear as if we actually have a president. If you don't believe that, just find any video of him talking without a prepared script in front of his face telling him what to say.
Obama is an ignorant buffoon. He doesn't have a clue what's going on in our government.
His primary purpose as president was to fundamentally transform this nation into his own personal vision.

He saw Obamacare as an accomplishment of that goal. Until now since he's starting to freak out.

Other than that, he's absolutely in over his head, and I believe he knows it more than anyone.

White House delays employer mandate requirement until 2015

By Sarah Kliff, Updated: July 2, 2013

The Obama administration will not penalize businesses that do not provide health insurance in 2014, the Treasury Department announced Tuesday.

Instead, it will delay enforcement of a major Affordable Care Act requirement that all employers with more than 50 employees provide coverage to their workers until 2015.

(Photo by Jessica Rinaldi/Reuters)

The administration said it would postpone the provision after hearing significant concerns from employers about the challenges of implementing it.

“We have heard concerns about the complexity of the requirements and the need for more time to implement them effectively,” Mark Mazur, Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy, wrote in a late Tuesday blog post.“We recognize that the vast majority of businesses that will need to do this reporting already provide health insurance to their workers, and we want to make sure it is easy for others to do so.”

The Affordable Care Act requires all employers with more than 50 full-time workers provide health insurance or pay steep fines. That policy had raised concerns about companies downsizing their workforce or cutting workers’ hours in order to dodge the new mandate.

In delaying the enforcement of that rule, the White House sidesteps those challenges for one year. It is also the second significant interruption for the Affordable Care Act, following a one-year delay on key functions of the small business insurance marketplaces.

Together, the moves could draw criticism that the administration will not be able to put into effect its signature legislative accomplishment on schedule.

Let's make some things better. How about we institute a radically liberal governmental philosophy. Here's a description of what I think our government should be:
http://constitutionus.com/
If you notice, this document forbids things like the Treasury minting trillion dollar coins to give to the Fed in exchange for rreal money to fund an alternate government in opposition to the legitimate constitutional government. It also forbids the president from issuing any orders to anyone or anything outside the limits of the Executive Branch of government.
How about you read this document and tell us about some other things prohibitted your preferred government is doing today.
I'll help you get started by giving you a quote from the Constitution:
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
This text prohibits the government from obtaining any email, phone, or any other private communications of any individual. The government cannot obtain ANY information about ANY individual without "probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
Now, that's a liberal idea, wouldn't you say?
Why are you such a fascist medieval extreme conservative?
Really? So you're ok with getting rid of the NSA. How about the FBI? We can dump the space program. Heck, we can dump the Air Force and Coast Guard.

And gee whiz, while were at it we can dump the Defense Department too. Nobody said anything about the president's cabinet. And even more telling, there's nothing about the staff of Congressmen. Heck, there isn't even anything regarding their pay or benefits... or even the capitol!

Now that's the conservative plan of how government works.... slash and burn. They'd do better in South America don't you think?

Professor Henry Graff :“I taught at Columbia for 46 years” Obama Could Not Have Gone There
UPDATED ANOTHER OBAMA PROFESSOR COMES OUT

UPDATED

ANOTHER PROFESSOR COMES OUT ABOUT OBAMA NOT GOING TO COLUMIA

In a recent interview, a well-known professor who taught at Columbia University for 46 years questioned whether or not President Obama actually attended the Ivy League school.

Prominent Columbia professor Henry Graff says he isn't sure President Obama ever attended the Ivy League school.

“I taught every significant politician that ever studied at Columbia,” said Columbia Emeritus Professor of History Henry Graff, in an interview last week with Wayne Root, a contributor at The Blaze.“Between American History and Diplomatic History, one way or another, they all had to come through my classes.”

“Not Obama,” he continued.“I never had a student with that name in any of my classes. I never met him, never saw him, never heard of him.”

Graff alleged that “none of the other Columbia professors knew him either” and said he is “very upset” to hear Obama referred to as a graduate of Columbia University.

“I am angry when I hear Obama called ‘the first President of the United States from Columbia University,’” he said.“I don’t consider him a Columbia student. I have no idea what he did on the Columbia campus. No one knows him.”

Graff is the recipient of the Kaul Foundation Award of Excellence in the field of education, an honor that is tied to a prize of $100,000. He is the author of multiple books and is known for teaching the first course on the history of the Presidency.
