Barack Obama, our next President

President Obama Has Made Himself a Lame Duck
It's true that President Obama isn't the first Democratic president to propose cuts to Social Security. Jimmy Carter successfully cut Social Security.
A proposal from President Jimmy Carter in 1977 proposed indexing changes that effectively cut benefits for future retirees.
Right. Carter not only changed the index, he proposed doing so in a way that reduced benefits more than chained-CPI would. Carter also scaled back eligibility rules for Social Security's disability insurance.
How'd that work out for Democrats?
Update
Carter's Social Security cuts left the door wide open for Ronald Reagan and the Republican Party to become the defenders of Social Security. Carter's mistakes in Iran were his own but Carter's cuts to Social Security hurt the Democratic party for a generation.

What does that have to do with anything? You obviously have a comprehension problem. I never said and the courts never said that Congress and the president can't reduce Social Security benefits. What I said, and what the Supreme Court said, is they can't do it arbitrarily. Presidents can propose it all they want...that doesn't make it constitutional.

"Due process of law" as interpreted by the U.S. Supreme Court: "The due process article is a restraint on the legislative as well as on the executive and judicial powers of the government, and cannot be so construed as to leave Congress free to make any process ‘due process of law’ by its mere will.” Murray v. Hoboken Land, 59 U.S. 272

did you know that more rapes are committed by white people than there are white people who died in a pool?
seems you folks really like collecting insurance money for burning shit down.
and let's not even talk about DUIs.
http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in...
though i think the DUI thing might be the result of racial profiling. everyone knows white people aren't smart enough to figure out you shouldn't drive when you're drunk.
In one particular world, there are 98 white people and 2 black people.

It goes almost without saying that the *number* of crimes committed by white people would always be a larger *number* than those committed by black people. Cute trick, eh?

So, technically speaking, whites commit more crime in this population combination. The black racist lie here is that it is a grossly unfair and intentional comparison and you damned well know it.

In truth, the highest *per capita* rate of crime in America today resides with blacks.

To you and to millions of other black racists, this sticks in your craw. You don't like this and so resort to number games like the one I started my post with.

You are not fooling anyone, sonic. Black racism has raised its ugly head in the White House down to the AG, down to Florida politics, down to Liberal Media and on down to Welfare Frauds and you.

We see it and laugh. But, at the same time, we fear that the less cranial-endowed members of society won't catch on to the simple mind games you play and go "Duh!" and riot.

Ignorance is such an ugly human trait at times!

CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA (CBS13)— An injured veteran of the war in Afghanistan has been told to take down the American flag she has flying from her balcony by her apartment’s management company.
Jen Elliot was shocked when she found a notice on her front door. It’s from her property management company asking her to remove an American flag from her balcony, along with some other items.
“I was very upset and very offended by it,” she said.“We live in America. Why shouldn’t we fly our flag proudly?”
Elliot says she immediately checked her lease to see if she was in fact violating any rules.
“It does say you cannot have flags, plants or wind chimes. However, it does say that the American flag can be displayed within the laws of the state and proper flag etiquette. And mine is.”
After CBS13 went to the property manager, the rental company called Elliot to say she can fly her flag—it just can’t stay where it’s at. The flag can’t be screwed into the siding of her balcony.
“I’ve lost six people in the past three months, and I know they are going through a tough time. I fly that for them.”
She was a specialist serving as a heavy-wheeled vehicle operator and a .50-caliber gunner. She says she flies the flag to remind her of her unit overseas that she can’t be a part of anymore after she was injured.
“I suffered from PVI, which is a traumatic brain injury. I was blown off into the wall, and I was unconscious for a couple of minutes. And I still have PTSD from that.”
Elliot says she’s moving out unless they let her keep the flag the way it is.
“I’ll take my plants and wind chimes down, it that’s what you want. But I’m not taking that flag down.”
The property management company says they are meeting with Jen face-to-face on Monday to discuss their options and how they can come to a resolution.
Why won't Obama let here fly her flag at her apartment?

President Obama's reaction to the IRS in May:
"I have now had the opportunity to review the Treasury Department watchdog’s report on its investigation of IRS personnel who improperly targeted conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status. And the report’s findings are INTOLERABLE and INEXCUSABLE. The federal government must conduct itself in a way that’s worthy of the public’s trust, and that’s especially true for the IRS. The IRS must apply the law in a fair and impartial way, and its employees must act with utmost integrity. This report shows that some of its employees failed that test.
"I’ve directed Treasury Secretary Jack Lew to HOLD THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR THESE FAILURES ACCOUNTABLE, and to make sure that each of the Inspector General’s recommendations are implemented quickly, so that such conduct never happens again. But regardless of how this conduct was allowed to take place, the bottom line is, IT WAS WRONG. Public service is a solemn privilege. I expect everyone who serves in the federal government to hold themselves to the highest ethical and moral standards. So do the American people. And as President, I intend to make sure our public servants live up to those standards every day."
...Two months later it's a distraction and a phony.
Can someone please explain this discrepancy? Leosnana? Lily? Sonic? Anyone?
And can someone please name those who were held accountable?
Thanks so much.

But I enjoy it! It shows there's really nothing else for them to talk or complain about! Pretty soon, I'm sure the birthers will have to jump back in again.
Then by all means, laugh it up slime ball. I'm glad you're amused. If Obama told you his sh!t tasted like maple syrup, you'd be in there lapping it up.

Well, when you stop and think about it from an international perspective, it makes sense. Not all those who are in legal limbo with immigration authorities are illegals and they should not be labeled as such. Those seeking asylum are "legal defined refugees." That is the issue addressed by the U.N. and completely ignored by the "chick on the right". People on the right have an inability to see the whole picture.

Liberal groups may have been targeted by IRS as well
New documents provided to the Treasury Department's inspector general indicate that progressive groups, in addition to conservative groups, may have been targeted by the IRS for additional scrutiny, according to testimony before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee by J. Russell George, the inspector general. The revelation bolsters the case of congressional Democrats who have argued that IRS targeting was not politically motivated, and that the groups targeted were more ideologically diverse than originally believed.
In his prepared testimony, George described documents from July 2010 that included the term "progressive" within a discussion of the types of groups that should be scrutinized by the IRS. Those documents were provided to George's office on July 9, but were not provided prior to the inspector general's original audit that initially jump-started the targeting scandal and the resultant committee hearings.
The Liberal Media Cockroaches have been working OT to counter any facts using innuendo and number games. It takes talent to lie good.

In this, you can take comfort:)
