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

FUNNY THESE THINGS ARE HAPPENING UNDER THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT WHAT A FRAUD OBAMA The concerned citizen would know that the city of Detroit, Michigan was declared bankrupt. They would know that the city’s art collection might be sold off, but not that pension obligations had already been subverted and workers and retirees who ought to live a decent life were instead on the road to being impoverished. The imagined news junkie would see images of dilapidated buildings and empty neighborhoods but would not be told that capitalism itself had destroyed a once thriving city which provided high wages to generations of workers.

This person who made efforts to be informed would know that America was in the midst of a searing heat wave. Some of the news stories would point out that 2012 was the hottest year on record for the continental United States because of something called climate change. They may or may not have been told that climate change resulted from increased production of fossil fuels and high levels of CO2 in the atmosphere. They would not know that the world’s second worst culprit of CO2 production was the United States of America.

Jane or John Q. Public would learn that a man named Ray Kelly was commissioner of the New York Police Department and the president found him “well qualified” to be nominated as Secretary of Homeland Security. They would not know that the president, putatively black, was singing the praises of a man who orchestrated the criminalization of nearly every black person in New York City through the infamous stop and frisk policy.

HIS SUPPORTERS ARE FOOLS IF THE FULL BLODDIED WAS PRESIDENT THERE WOULD BE PROTEST IN THE STREETS BUT HE WAS PUT IN TO OVERSEE THE DESTRUCTION OF AMERICA AS WE KNOW IT AND THAT WILL ALL END BLACKS BUT THEY WILL SEE

Did you see where a federal judge suspended all lawsuits related to the Detroit bankruptcy and prohibited any future lawsuits, noting that his court had sole authority, the purpose of bankruptcy proceedings?
Yes, that's how Chapter 9 works.

Galt will grant you one thing. The Camaro is a decent car, but GM will find a way to screw it up.
Remember the X-cars? Ever see any of them still on the road?
The X body cars, which Roger Smith referred to as the Jap killers were junk, as where the turds the X bodies replaced.

Sounds like you owned one pal.

That was the old GM, the one that allowed the board of directors to make all the the decisions on who to hire, what to build and even choose the color line up. That GM died the day that Rick Wagoner was shown the doorway by security along with over half of the directors in a WTF moment that was predicted in the late 70's by DeLorean in his beyond terrific book, "On a Clear Day, You can See GM."

In other news, Mayor Filner is going to check into rehab for jerkovs, Michelle Bachmann is being investigated for campaign fund indiscretions and Weiner's going limp in polling.

In typical liberal fashion, instead of asking that taxes for 60k be lowered, you want capital gains taxes raised.

The BLS lists PT as a separate category than full time.
Evidently the cheap ass grocer pays no health insurance to anyone & dumps his employees to utilize services that sometimes we end up paying for. Your kind of person, moocher Eed.
"real dumb"
You are dumb. If one takes a part time job, he is no longer listed as unemployed. The business does provide health insurance to full time employees, managers, department heads, buyers. The employees who take the part time positions they know going in that health insurance will not be provided. They made a choice. Unlike you they are working, they do not have their hand out.

But you are right, they screwed it up prior to 2002 (when they ceased producing the Camaro, and since then...

You need to stop all the yinging and yanging about the trial. You agreed with the verdict. The prosecution did not present the evidence to convict for second-degree murder.
But have no idea what you're talking about with "one member of the minority party in both houses..."
I do know that a 2004 Congressional hearing tried to rein in Fannie and Freddie that led nowhere because democrats refused to admit there was a problem.
I do know that Barney Frank tried to convince America Fannie and Freddie were "doing just fine" right up to the very end.
And I do know far more democrats resisted regulating Fannie and Freddie than republicans after Bush's numerous warnings.
That's what I'm convinced about.
Again, for the thinking impaired: Its NOT about the trial, its about the lie you were so certain of.

See? You got around to Frank all on your own.

There was NOT ONE THING House Democrats could have done to prevent the House Majority Republicans from enacting ANY reform they wanted to.

And one member of the minority Party (B. Frank) sure as hell couldn't do anything to stop them.

So, back to the original question. Do you not know you're telling these lies? Is it just programming?

What is it?
Yeah

Here, get less stupid or did you not understand the words you typed.

"Do you think its right for you to pay 28% when you're earning $60k a year while they make millions and pay a flat 15%? Capital gains are income and need to be taxed the same rate as earned income." - dumbass tensing

Why not say that earned income should be taxed at the same rate as capital gains?- Cause you're a libturd!

I, myself, don't think he's your "hero". But because you have condemned only one side ever since you've been on here and defended this president at every opportunity, it's pretty clear to most of us you aren't clear exactly where you stand.
Yes, this is part of y'all's problem (not that this isn't the umpteenth time I've had to explain it).

You think that because I call you people and your handlers on the propaganda and just general BS you think I must therefore be defending Obama or the Democrats.

It is not a binary proposition, there's more than two possibilities.

I don't have to love Democrats to despise the lying, morally bankrupt right.

You dopes see everything in from that perspective, even members of your own Party, if they're not foaming-at-the-mouth right wing idiots y'all call them "Democrats".

I'm not a foaming-at-the-mouth right wing idiot so y'all assume I must be a democrat.

Stay on the subject lubturd. I said you were lying when you said Obama should be executed, when you had already given him a pass for killing Americans.

The post where you called him your hero will come when you provide the post where I said Martin threw the first punch.

The Obama Project and the Politics of Race

Obama has across his presidency done essentially nothing on behalf of black Civil Rights.”
Obama, I remarked, has across his presidency done essentially nothing on behalf of black Civil Rights. Worse, I added, he has been actively hostile to the notion that the government ought to do anything to correct or even acknowledge racial oppression and inequality in the U.S.– consistent with numerous “post-racial” and post-Civil Rights comments he made as a presidential candidate in 2007 and 2008 – and has actually spent more time chiding blacks for their own supposed personal and cultural failures to take advantage of America’s supposedly great opportunities than he has on addressing any of the many ways in which racism still deeply permeates American life and institutions.

"silly"
In as much as "dumos" is a coward and will not answer, I will ask you. What is the difference between innocent and not guilty? With your gift of gab you must have an answer. The fact remains;
- Innocent = Not guilty
- Not guilty = Innocent
Webster Dumb - destitute of the power of speech, stoopid, foolish, inane. So stoopid and dumb are much the same.
You are a enigma, on one had you are not dumb you have the power of speech, on the other hand you can be dumb in as much as you can be stoopid, foolish and inane.
