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

Tea Party fight democracy
The same day, last month, that the Supreme Court struck down a key section of the Voting Rights Act, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott declared that Texas laws that had been stopped by the Act—because courts found them to be discriminatory—would immediately go into effect. On Friday, Attorney General Eric Holder struck back.
In the color-blind wish-world of Chief Justice Roberts and his four conservative colleagues on the Supreme Court, Jim Crow-era restrictions on minority voting represent a sad, historical curiosity, unrelated to modern reality. Surveying the landscape from their marble aerie, these five Justices decided in Shelby County v. Holder that requiring the pre-clearance of election-law changes in certain jurisdictions, a provision of Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act, was now unconstitutional. Congress had passed the Act in 1965 in response to the broad denial of the right to vote; as recently as 2006, an overwhelming majority of Congress found that it was still necessary. The Court simply disagreed:“Nearly 50 years later, things have changed dramatically.”
It's going to be interesting if the popular vote and the electoral votes will be in sync the next go 'round.
Yeah

Seems the right wing extremists are the ones crying and complaining all the time.

Yes, 14 years as an MT - take or give a few months.
Yes, raising my own daughter after having her late in life was more important to me than a career and someone else raising her and, yes, working from home in another career with flexible hours made that possible.
No, my daughter was not taxpayer funded at the age of 10 and still isn't. If you don't like student loans, take it up with the government.
Being a homeowner for 25 years, townhome living suits us just fine. God willing, we will buy a home outright with hubby's 401k when he retires. Assuming, of course, Obama doesn't take that from us too.

Now what is your problem exactly?
"Obama doesn't take that from us too"? So, he took your home of 25 years?

You're truly "crazy"

Funny. The cons here keep pushing Benghazi, the IRS and whatever else they can dream up.

And most of the posts come in the form of a question rather than anything factual.

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.

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.
Yeah, yeah, yeah whatever. Let her go buy a home in the woods and she can do whatever she wants. Put he flag in her house, who cares?

Very good weekend, thanks.
How many jobs aren't being created by Obama refusing to build the pipeline? It would be great if he actually created jobs that would benefit all of us and the country.
But remember those shovel ready jobs he promised? And remember how that ended up being a private joke between him and Emmelt when Obama admitted they never really existed?
Obama wants more government workers than private sector workers. So either he thinks the money for all those salaries and benefits grows on trees or it's by design since, obviously, there isn't going to be enough money from taxpayers in the private sector when everyone is working part-time jobs and that, of course, is where the money actually comes from.
Take your pick. I choose the latter.
Funny, government employment is down during the Obama administration while the private sector has added over 7 million.

<quoted text>You Pseudo Liberals are gullible and all legal which Jimmy Carter Cut & reduced Social Security benefits but didnt eliminate them.
and here is an article since you dont remember Jimmy Carter doing it and Obama suggesting the same reducing Social Security.

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.
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/04/12/1201... #
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.

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!
