Barack Obama, our next President

Sonic,
They are racist. Big deal.
Nothing will change until you stop whuppin' your kids.
.....
Sonic,
One time an enormous black woman started beating her kid while in my presence because he was crying. I had to intervene and make her stop. She wound up and belted him 3 times.
We we in the ER. I was on staff and the kid was a patient.
I new right then and there that if you people would beat your kids in the hospital in front of me, there is no telling what you do to them in at home and in private.
You are the one with the gross problem, Sonic. Not I.

yep, all those unemployed/underemployed non-taxpayers are really going to jumpstart the economy, especially with ObammyCare keeping the hiring down.

Barack Obama, our Food Stamp President

'Well I guess we all missed it: President Obama has gotten us out of the recession! Oh wait, but that’s not true at all.

In his press conference on Monday, Jay Carney said the Obama administration has pulled the nation out of the “Great Recession” with the creation of 7.2 million private sector jobs (DO YOU WANT FRIES WITH THAT? & HOW MANY VACATION DAYS DO I GET A SOLYNDRA?). But there are a few things that Mr. Carney forgot to mention along with this statistic.

Since February of 2009, the first full month of Obama's presidency, 9.5 million Americans have dropped out of the labor force. Nearly 90 million Americans are not working today!

That means that 1.3 Americans have dropped out of the labor force for every one job the administration claims to have created.

There are 15 million more Americans on food stamps today than when Obama assumed office.

At the end of January 2009, 32,204,859 Americans received aid from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. As of April 2013, there were 47,548,694 Americans on food stamps.

That means that more than two Americans have been added to the food stamp rolls for every one job the administration says it has created.

Under Obama, 1.6 million more Americans are collecting disability insurance. In February 2009, 9,334,369 Americans received disability payments. Today, that number is 10,953,733.

What the president and his administration seem to forget is that just because there are new jobs in the market, does not mean that the problems have been solved! When more and more Americans are relying on government assistance, there is clearly still an issue. Until President Obama realizes that this country was created with liberty in mind, he will continue to flaunt these numbers around like they are proof of success.'

IF OBAMA HAD A CITY, IT WOULD LOOK JUST LIKE DETROIT.

obama's 5,000-word address was long on broad language and scant on targeted solutions. It was long on its indictment of the Republican approach — an “endless parade of distractions, political posturing and phony scandals”— and short on how Obama intends to snap the economic funk.

Though Obama painted a rosy picture —“we’ve cleared away the rubble from the financial crisis and begun to lay a new foundation for stronger, more durable economic growth”— the facts on the ground remain grim.

The recovery from the Great Recession has been pitifully weak.

America’s economy has, these past four years, been growing at a lame 2%— the weakest rate after World War II.

Since the start of 2013, the number of people with jobs increased by 753,000 — but more than two-thirds of the new positions were part-time. The official unemployment rate stands at 7.6%, but factor in part-time workers who want full-time work and those who’ve stopped looking altogether and it hits 14.3%. About 22 million Americans are unemployed or underemployed.

If Obama intends to offer poll-tested proposals in hope of helping Democrats win congressional seats in the midterm elections, he will betray the very folks he promises to help by failing to deliver true growth generators.

Those include streamlining the U.S. patent office, nourishing high-tech industries, winning immigration reform and modernizing American infrastructure — not only the 100,000 bridges that Obama quipped “are old enough to qualify for Medicare,” but also the guts of America’s aging air-traffic control system.

Will July 24, 2013 be a decisive start on meeting the economic challenges of our time — or Obama’s umpteenth repositioning to make Republicans look obstinate? Only the President can answer that question.

So, that 47 percent that doesn't pay taxes won't be paying taxes, and the only half of the country paying taxes will pay more taxes, right?
And they will pay one and a half trillion dollars more in taxes than they are paying now?

On this planet that is an impossibility. The only half of the country paying taxes don't have that much money if you taxed them at 100 percent and made them destitute.

So, the question remains unanswered. Your source of money doesn't exist, and the likelihood of it ever existing is about the same as winning the Power Ball lotery twice in a row.

What is the source of money? You have to identify an existing source of money, or a source of money that is actually possible.

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

News item: On Tuesday, the city council of bankrupt Detroit voted unanimously for a resolution condemning the Travon Martin verdict and calling for federal intervention in the case.

Get it? The city is bankrupt. It looks like a scene from the Walking Dead. City services are nonexistent. Crime is rampant.

What do the 100% LIBERAL SOCIALIST/DEMOCRAT COUNCIL MEMEBERS occupy their time doing?

Voting for a resolution on a criminal case in Florida.

See a pattern? We have unemployment over 7.5% for OVER FOUR YEARS and Lord Obama flies to Europe (a few weeks ago) to give speeches on how global warming is going to doom all of us.

We have a financial crisis with the federal budget, Lord Obama flies his family for a vacation in Africa, running up a $60-$100 million tab.

If this doesn't bother you, you're clueless.

No, that's not how it works. Real leaders don't come up with the idea of a sequester, sign it, make doomsday speeches to get his way and then blames the other side for standing their ground.
The majority of Americans wanted the sequester cuts to go even deeper.
The doomsday speeches/temper tantrums didn't work. He's punishing everyone now - closing the WH doors, cancelling traditional military events, hurting public servants such as firemen - as much as possible but hosts lavish galas at the WH, goes on lavish trips and plays golf with Tiger Woods.
No, this is not how it works.
Real leaders don't pitch a fit and pout because they refuse to work and compromise with those who represent the other half of the nation.
HEY STUPID! Obama didn't come up with the idea of sequestration. Paul Ryan has been pushing for it since 2004 and in fact wrote the legislation. Boehner said that he got 98% of what he wanted in the deal. On what do you base your statement that the majority of Americans want deeper cuts? When polled on individual programs like Medicare, Social Security, Veterans programs and defense most Americans want them to get the same funding that they currently receive.
What freaking lavish galas are you talking about Carol? The White House schedule is posted on line and I haven't found anything that you can call a gala, lavish or otherwise. Obama's trips abroad have been on the nation's business like his latest trip to Africa. But I guess you like the rest of the right wing idiots on this thread would rather cede that continent with its strategically important resources to China.
If you really want to talk about wasting taxpayer dollars then how about those symbolic, going nowhere votes to repeal Obamacare? Every time they indulged in this foolishness it cost taxpayers almost $1.5 million for a total of approximately $53.8 million.
Who's hurting public servants Carol? The original stimulus package kept firefighter, police and teachers on the job and not one Republican voted for it. Since when have you been so concerned about public sector employees hypocrite? It's clear to anyone who has at least a couple of brain cells that communicate with each other that the GOP is responsible for the gridlock, not the President.

Herman Cain Plays the Banjo for White Conservatives (Again)
For a political ideology that ostensibly embraces individualism and rejects the politics of group identity, grievance, and victimology, it is ironic then that Cain has to signal that he is a different type of black man from President Barack Obama. That Cain needed to explain to a Republican audience that black folks are individuals, and not a nameless, faceless, horde of negritude that all walk lockstep like zombies is frightening to say the least--and a damning indictment of those that Cain would call political allies.
....As opposed to expressing rage at racial injustice, Cain and others of his clan choose to express anger and consternation toward black and brown folk who are not Republicans--the ancestors and heirs to a struggle that won contemporary Black Conservatives their freedom--who they describe as still being on "the Democratic Plantation" or as "slave catchers" that run down "free thinking" black people. Once more, this is a tragic play on the stage of American life where in an oddly racialized version of Stockholm Syndrome, Cain and other Black Conservatives play the quislings to their White Conservative masters.

it's pretty funny watching you nutjobs following the FOX racism playbook. you all say the same things, you all think the same way, and you all defend those who have turned you into white zombies despite the fact that they are losing their hold on the narrative.

and how cool would that be? FOX would have to fire all of it's video editors!
Obama plays the banjo for communists in the Democratic Party. He puts on a tap dance that would make Sammy Davis Jr envious. He mesmerizes the Democrat dupes with prescripted prose he reads from the teleprompter.
Meanwhile, the entire world watches from the hill the figure of a smartly dressed Uncle Tom singing and dancing to an audience of dupes while a cadre of promoters stand behind the stage.

The world sees all the Obama buffoonery. Do you ever ask yourself why you don't see it?

I was pretty sure the math would be over your head. The 47% that don't pay "income" taxes DO pay "sales" taxes. They also pay "property" taxes, "gas" taxes, etc. There would also be more people paying "income" taxes if obstructionist Republicans would support Obama's jobs program. And there are more people raising that 47% figure adding additional "income" tax payers as the economy grows despite folks like you.
