Barack Obama, our next President

“subject to amendment or repeal as Congress in its wisdom feels will best promote the general welfare"...
sounds like Congress could terminate Social Security at its discretion on these rather vague grounds...
exactly and Federal Government has already altered the origianl Social Security act which by law the Social Security tax was never suppose to be no more than 1% on the Employer and 1% on the Employer which now combined its is a 12.4% and proves its a SCAM which you cant blame employers for Off Shoring US jobs.

<quoted text>Just how many times are you going to post your multiple replies in gibberish to support a philandering drug dealer, WOW? He wasn't really Santa Claus of Buzz Lightyear, ya' know? Boorish, clueless, bumbling misogynist Tim Taylor might have been a bit of typecasting no doubt.
Philandering drug dealers are nothing compared to the wonderful Democrat criminals who've run Detroit.

And maybe the Detroit Model of socialist ruination can be used in other cities.

From 1974 to 1993, Coleman Young, who was subsequently revealed to be a member of the Communist Party, was mayor and failed to stem Detroit’s descent into chaos, and in 1992 his police chief was convicted of stealing $2.6M from city taxpayers. Michigan’s hard-left U.S. Senator Carl Levin was Young’s chief supporter, serving as Detroit City Council president.

Kwame Kilpatrick, who served as Mayor from 2002- 2008, represents the epitome of corruption and pled guilty to 2 felonies & no contest to a 3rd one receiving a sentence of 120 days. In 2010, he received a 5 yr sentence for probation violations stemming from his obstruction of justice conviction. Currently Kilpatrick, his father & his longtime contractor friend who got millions of dollars in city work, are awaiting a jury verdict on racketeering, bribery & tax charges that could send them all to jail for 20 yrs.

All of these policies & politicians have had their effect. In 2012, Forbes Magazine rated Detroit the most dangerous city in America. A Detroit News poll revealed that “Detroit’s crime crisis” has gotten so bad, a staggering 40% of its residents intend to leave the city within 5 yrs.

Another 2/3 say the city is on the wrong track. The poll also found that all of Detroit’s public officials were held in low esteem, except for Police Chief Ralph Godbee–who retired due to a sex scandal after the poll was taken.
Now 1 might think that those living in the epicenter of Democrat-inflicted misery for 50 yrs might consider changing course. One would be completely wrong.

On Nov. 6, Obama received 98% of the vote & the same night Detroit voters elected a convicted felon, Brian Banks, to serve in the state legislature. Other election results show overwhelming margins of victories for Detroit Democrats as well.

Thus, the self-inflicted misery continues, even as it is almost certain that Detroit’s Democratically-dominated city government will resist the efforts of Gov. Synder & the Republicans who run the state legislature, to keep the city from going under.

It is also likely that much of that resistance will be framed in racial terms, a theme that has already been stoked by U.S. Rep John Conyers (D-MI), who has represented Detroit for 47 yrs.“How come all of the jurisdictions put under emergency management are majority African American? Has anybody noticed that?” he wondered.

Here’s what some people have “noticed,” Mr. Conyers: the top 10 most dangerous cities in the nation are each led by a Democrat mayor.

Detroit residents have had 50 years to fix their own problems. They’ve elected Democrat after Democrat, bringing the city to the brink of bankruptcy. But thank God the good citizens of Detroit never allowed anyone competent or experienced like Mitt Romney or Rudy Guilani to turn things around.

You are always so uninformed. Guess your only source of news must be Fox.
Fox has continually ignored the fact the survivors have already spoken to investigators and that. as witnesses in an ongoing FBI investigation, there are very good reasons to keep them from speaking publicly. One of those reasons is so that stations like Fox can't sensationalize and distort things before the survivors have a chance to testify. It's not a cover-up, it's common sense. Of course, we all know that Fox only appeals to emotion...never common sense.
it is you that is so uninformed and you have proven that.

You'd have to make a definition of "directly involved" a little clearer.
Since we didn't have something like a Pearl Harbor attack, I'm guessing you think the Cold War didn't directly involve us, right?
Communism is trying to take over the entire world, and we're not involved, right?
This is a dodge, though. We still haven't touched on the Vietnam proxy war yet. So, in three posts, you will regurgitate a lie the Democrats invented about Vietnam.
"Directly threatened", you really can't read sheepdip.

Yes I take issue with the Cold War and the long since discredited Domino Theory.

I'm not dodging sht, I have no idea what sniveling crap you imagine you have up your sleeve, Vietnam did not threaten or attack us so the war was invalid IMO.

HARRISBURG - William Scranton Jr., a former Pennsylvania governor, presidential candidate and ambassador to the United Nations, has died. He was 96.

Mike DeVanney, a family spokesman, says Scranton died Sunday night of a cerebral hemorrhage at a retirement community in Montecito, Calif.

Scranton was Pennsylvania's 38th governor, serving one term from 1963 to 1967.

The moderately liberal Republican challenged conservative Barry Goldwater in 1964 during a brief, reluctant foray into presidential politics. Scranton committed to the campaign just a month before the national convention and lost the nomination to Goldwater by a 4-to-1 margin.

He was appointed ambassador to the United Nations by President Gerald Ford in 1976 and served roughly 10 months in the post.

He had a home in Waverly, Pa., just outside the city named for his family.

It's not directly related to this discussion, but something uniquely Democrat to bitch about is muslim terrorists in the White House every goddam day.
How about you just give us a reason to believe Obama isn't their guy when the institutions that caused the financial disaster gave so much money to him, it was only Christopher Dodd in the entire Congress they gave more to.
What did they get for their money?

ACtually, there is a photo of her before she had the bulb at the end of her nose reduced. She looks just about the same. You make assumptions you're ignorant of, as usual.
And, you are referencing the make up used. The makeup causes parts of the face to be highlighted in the photograph, and subdues other parts.
The girl in the photo is a fair representative of the common facial and body features of Russian women.
Perhaps you should go and look for yourself.
I've known a lot of Russian women and yes, they can be quite attractive. I find Eastern European women to be generally attractive anyway.

So we weren't threatened on 9/11?
And Hillary was wrong when she spoke on the Senate Floor in 2002 when she emphatically stated, "Saddam Hussein provided aid, comfort and sanctuary to terrorists including al-Qaeda members...if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare and will keep trying to develop chemical weapons..."?
Before she became a weasel for personal and political gain, I mean?
Yes, we should have had a better strategy in the event of a strong resurgence by Saddam's thugs and al-Qaeda making Iraq the frontlines. But the initial mission was, in fact, accomplished, and there are no crystal balls in war. Even Obama was forced to admit in an interview with O'Reilly the surge worked.
But Obama's early withdrawal of all troops in Iraq just threw all our precious blood and treasure right out the window.
We asked for it with our foreign policy, how many times we gotta go over this?
