Barack Obama, our next President

One man dead and another injured after gunfire erupts in Brooklyn
An 18-year-old man was killed after being shot twice in the chest and a 16-year-old was wounded by a shot to the leg when a gunman ambushed them on Miller Ave. in East New York.

the above only matters to Obammy and his BFF Sharpton if
the above were shot by WHITE Hispanics while on a neighborhood watch patrol OR police officers. otherwise, no protests, no presidential speeches, just another day like all days in the 'hood.
but, but, but... if Obammy had a son he could have looked like the 18 year old

Leosnotta and her well worn Hypocritical Badge of Dishonor...the party responsible for the demise of the family, especially the black family is YOUR party. values such as patriotism and faith have been put down by liberal Democrats since the 1970s...you know as in "clinging to guns and religions..."

the lib campaign has been to 'prop up its spending schemes of redistribution amongst the less or non-productive population.'

Marriage was devalued, until it became politically correct to want gays to marry, then all of a sudden it became important--otherwise libs have been on an attack against it culturally.

Traditional marriage 'very efficiently captures the voluntary investment of men in society, both financial through their labors, and socio-cultural through their investment in the well-being of their wives and particularly their children.

Without marriage, all the State has is force: taxation and what I call "Chilimony", or child support-cum-alimony. Two guesses as to which one has higher yields, and the first one doesn't count.

The coerced transfer of wealth from the Average Joe to women and the looting classes can only last so long when Joe is given very little reason to use his excess labor to produce that wealth in the first place.'

How did Trayvon know he was about to become a murder victim? Because a concerned neighbor was keeping an eye on his neighborhood? Trayvon didn't even know Zimmerman had a gun.
Perhaps if he did, he would have kept walking.
Zimmerman could have pulled the gun as soon as he saw Trayvon - before his nose was fractured and he was being straddled on the ground. And long before he kept repeatedly screaming for help.

To back your bullshit up, you'd first have to know what a "Special Purpose Vehicle" is, what countries they were established in, what their purpose was,...
and how your so-called "economists" convinced the governments of the countries these "Special Purpose Vehicles" were established in to force these "Special Purpose Vehicles" to open their books for their review when the US government couldn't do that.
For clarification on what a "Special Purpose Vehicle" is, ask Ben Bernanke why he referenced them in his testimony before Barney Frank's committee, after which all questioning of Bernanke immediately ceased when he uttered the words "Special Purpose Vehicle", and later he got 100% support from the Democrats to continue as head of the Fed.
For some reason, Bernanke mentioning "Special Purpose Vehicle" to Barney Frank's committee was enough to shut every Democrat mouth in DC, and ensure unanimous support from the Democrats to continue as head of the Fed.
You really need an education on this, dumbass. You can't make any determination without looking at the mortgages, and the mortgages are in the possession of these "Special Purpose Vehicles" which were established in foreign countries specifically to prevent any investigation.
i have no clue as to what you're talking about, but i was talking about this....

The Federal Reserve Board has found no connection between CRA and the subprime mortgage problems. In fact, the Board's analysis found that nearly 60 percent of higher-priced loans went to middle- or higher-income borrowers or neighborhoods, which are not the focus of CRA activity. Additionally, about 20 percent of the higher-priced loans that were extended in low- or moderate-income areas, or to low- or moderate-income borrowers, were loans originated by lenders not covered by the CRA. Our analysis found that only six percent of all higher-priced loans were made by CRA-covered lenders to borrowers and neighborhoods targeted by the CRA. Further, our review of loan performance found that rates of serious mortgage delinquency are high in all neighborhood groups, not just in lower-income areas.

Lily, read Wisconsin's bill.
Stop perpetrating these lies.
Think progress is lying to you and every liberal who willingly believes them.
The law does not state anything about a transvaginal ultrasound - much less a "vaginal probe" in Virginia either.
The word "ultrasound" is the word used in both bills. Liberals just decided to add their own interpretation.
Even if a woman seeking an abortion has to see that life first before making an informed decision - then so be it.
You liberals are becoming much too barbaric with your progressive liberalism mentality.
A woman should make an informed decision before going through with an abortion which is life-changing. In the case of abortion, life-destroying.
Why would you or anyone else possibly have a problem with that? Are you afraid she might just decide to keep the baby after seeing it?
Seriously. What's wrong with you liberals? I mean it.
In that simplistic naive programmed world that you reside where common sense, the facts and perception are all lost unless it all can be twisted into a political statement proves over and over just what a block head you really are. How any rational thinking woman could possible agree with anyone on the hard right is a sad testimony to your conditioned life.

You're actually right about not touting a "fair tax".

The reason?

In Romney's words: "Some people advocate the 'Fair Tax' as a means of boosting savings, a system that would entirely replace income taxes with a consumption tax--a kind of sales tax. Fair Tax proponents estimate that a tax rate of 23% would be sufficient, but detractors claim that it would be closer to 40%. The enormous amount saved by the wealthiest under the Fair Tax would be made up by a higher tax burden on the middle class."

But he also said: "I would like to see our tax rates flatter. I'd like to see our code simpler. I'd like to see the special breaks that we have in the code taken out. What I want to do is to take our precious dollars and focus them on the people in this country that have been hurt the most, and that's the middle class."

You did see a smaller check too this past January like everyone else? Hold your breath next January.

And if Canada's corporate taxes are only 15% and ours are 35%, where do you think corporations are going to do business?

So Romney actually had it right.

You, however, still have it wrong.

Univisión Ranks First In July Television Ratings

Univisión, an American Spanish language broadcast network, announced Monday that it placed first in the July sweeps, ranking ahead of ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX.

Dan Pfieffer, senior adviser to President Barack Obama, tweeted that Univisión's high viewership could spell trouble for the GOP.

"The news that @univision is the #1 net for July sweeps is a real GOP problem on immigration -- the coverage has been brutal for the GOP"

Again with the racially profiling...

Sheesh.

Black perpetrators were responsible for the robberies in Zimmerman's neighborhood.

An unknown black young man "acting strangely" in the rain being looked at suspiciously shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.

But, then again, only liberals think patting down toddlers and grandmas is much better than looking out for the most suspicious characteristics of a terrorist.

It actually really IS the culture...of borderline insanity.

This racist point is something right wing crazies are always trying to keep to the fore.

But it keeps getting harder and harder since people are losing interest in idiots who cry wolf all the time.
