So, what was all the "shovel-ready" bullshit coming out of Obama's mouth about?
In one motion, more money was spent than the total cost of the war in Iraq from beginning to end. That was enough money to rebuild the entire infrastructure of the United States... the goddam "shovel-ready" jobs Obama was lying about.
Where did that money go? It was stolen, of course. Just look at the people allocating it. An idiot can tell you those people are thieves.
The total 10-year cost of Porkulus will be 3.3 trillion dollars, to include 744 billion (call it a trillion) dollars debt servicing.
Stop the insanity.
No more debt. Not for any reason. And definitely not another Porkulus lie.
Porkulus? Didn't you say the word doesn't exist?

Don Lemon, a black CNN commentator who agrees with Bill O'Reilly about not addressing the root problems in the black community said on air, "Just because you CAN have children doesn't mean that you SHOULD have them."
Finally, the right message by the right voices! Black leaders who have influence.
Good money management goes hand-in-hand with good parenting advice to white , black, and other ethnic families. So, you're all in favor of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and Planned Parenthood family planning and health centers staying open and even expanding their services.

Too many Democrats think they're "special". They like to talk the talk but expect others to walk the walk. Same with Obamacare waivers. If you're "special", you are exempt from the "train wreck that's comin'". The same train the rest of us are strapped into.
You mean the same 'train wreck' in our unsustainable healthcare system that all healthcare professionals decried BEFORE the Obamacare reform bill was finally passed by Congress.

Recently heard a Muslim Middle Eastern expert explain that most radical Islamists are uneducated and can't read. The only way they can feel relevant in today's world is through violence and terrorism.

Even so, some have thought that this reservation was in some way unconstitutional. This is the issue finally settled by Flemming v. Nestor in 1960 and clearly stated on the Social Security Website so you better wakeup.
Entitlements and Guaranteed Bankruptcy
By Gary North
November 3, 2010
The typical voter has never read this. The statement is “transparent,” but it is buried deep in the Social Security System’s Website. It is a classic case of “The large print giveth, and the fine print taketh away.” It has never occurred to the average voter until quite recently that the promises made by Congress can be revoked at any time for political reasons. Who says so? The Social Security System.
The fact that workers contribute to the Social Security program’s funding through a dedicated payroll tax establishes a unique connection between those tax payments and future benefits. More so than general federal income taxes can be said to establish “rights” to certain government services. This is often expressed in the idea that Social Security benefits are “an earned right.” This is true enough in a moral and political sense. But like all federal entitlement programs, Congress can change the rules regarding eligibility — and it has done so many times over the years. The rules can be made more generous, or they can be made more restrictive. Benefits which are granted at one time can be withdrawn, as for example with student benefits, which were substantially scaled-back in the 1983 Amendments.
The phrase,“an earned right,” is another term for “entitlement.” So,“entitlement” in fact means “not legally entitled.” Who says so? The United States government.
Using a conservative claim to support your claim doesn't help your case.

Obviously, you don't.
I've explained what they are several times here, and exactly what their part was in the economic collapse. You should have been paying attention. You would have learned something. You know, Ben Bernanke mentioning them in his testimony to Barney Frank's committee should have indicated to you they had importance of significance.
Do I have to explain what a Special Purpose Vehicle is again for you? Or, can you tell us what they are?
I'm guessing you don't have a clue. Therefore, because they were the key element in getting fraudulent ratings for the worthless traunches comprised of failed CRA mortgages, you haven't got a fucking clue why or how the economy collapsed.
I want you to tell us what a Special Purpose Vehicle is, or just say you don't know anything about what you copy and paste here.
A "Special Purpose Vehicle" is...(why don't you finish that sentence and show us you know what you're talking about.)

SPEs have been utilized for years.

But hey, you are progressing. No longer blaming the CRA. Now you are blaming the institutions who bundled bad loans & bought AAA credit ratings for them. Now, if you only could understand that all sub prime mortgages were not CRA.

Christians have always believed that they were better because they would be the only ones going to heaven for believing in Jesus Christ as GOD than any other religion converts. But, we still work with them and cooperate on solving problems in society.

How would the liar formerly known as Aunt Batshyt compare childbirth to a headache or sprained ankle?
So you think $16,000 is a reasonable cost to deliver a baby - even by C-section?

Fair and Balanced and White? Why Fox News Needs Black Conservatives

Fox News Channel, the hugely successful conservative cable TV network whose motto is “Fair and Balanced”, is anything but when it comes to on-air personalities.

Libertarian Greg Gutfeld, host of Fox News Channel’s Red Eye and The Five, believes the network has a race problem. During Wednesday’s opening segment on The Five, Gutfeld noted the incongruous scenario of constantly discussing race without a black person participating in the discussion.

Gutfeld said,“We are here talking about this and there are five white people. I think Fox should be hiring more black conservatives. Because, dammit they need to be here and they need to be everywhere. That’s fair and balanced.”

Gutfeld’s keen observation should not be taken lightly. Fox News’ lack of African-American representation at the highest level of its TV shows, anchors and hosts, has a negative ripple effect throughout the conservative movement.

Cable TV news is less about news and more about presenting opinions and analysis that generate ratings and voter action. Given that statement, it is safe to assume that the opinions of black on-air personalities do not resonate with Fox News’ audience. And if it is safe to assume black on-air personalities do not resonate with Fox News audiences, then they definitely don’t resonate with Republican voters.

The paucity of on-air black anchors and hosts at Fox is completely consistent with the lack of black elected officials in the Republican Party. It is no secret that Fox News is largely seen as the most influential and important communication vehicle of the GOP. It is not a coincidence that there are relatively few black on-air show hosts on Fox and only one black Republican in Congress. If Fox News is not promoting black conservatives for elected office — and they are not— then it is highly improbable that they will be elected. Why Fox is not pumping up the profiles of conservatives like Mia Love, Erika Harold, or Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) is anybody’s guess. You would think electing the first African-American Republican woman to Congress and providing a platform for the only black Republican in Congress would be high priorities of the conservative network. Unfortunately, Fox doesn’t have any opinion-making conservatives with black faces to make that point.

If Fox News is not featuring black conservatives on-air, then rest assured that conservative America is not going to support them at the ballot box. The Republican National Committee has an outreach program, largely based on using the media to spread the conservative message to African-Americans. Maybe they should ask Fox News to help out.

Tenzing said it was something we did in Iran back in the 1950s to protect our best interests against Russia's influence.
But, personally, I think the strict sanctions on Iraq during the Clinton administration that killed thousands of children probably made them the most angry.
Lesley Stahl interviewed Madeleine Albright on '60 Minutes' back on May 12, 1996:
Lesley Stahl (speaking of U.S. sanctions against Iraq): We have heard that a half million children have died. I mean, that's more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?
Secretary of State Madeleine Albright: I think this is a very hard choice, but the price--we think the price is worth it.
...Seems Clinton may have not only started the housing market collapse but the plot for 9/11.
More people died in Iraq under Clinton than Bush - ironically.
I mentioned the Iraq sanctions in the same sentence as the Shah you nitwit.

We ALL decried a broken health care system long before Obamacare. Physicians stopped "decrying" and are just throwing in the towel.

Did you read my posts explaining why health care costs are so insanely outrageous and that's the pink elephant everyone is pretending not to see?

Or do you just like chasing your tail trying to fix the wrong problem like so many others are doing of which Obama is the prime example?

Just two weeks after Janet Napolitano announced her resignation as Secretary of Homeland Security, the Congressional Black Caucus has suggested Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston fill her spot.

A letter dated July 25 and signed by Rep. Marcia Fudge, Ohio Democrat and caucus chairwoman, urges President Obama to consider Miss Jackson Lee for the position, calling the Democrat a “voice of reason” that the agency could stand to gain, the Houston Chronicle reported.

“Representative Jackson Lee would serve as an effective DHS Secretary because she understands the importance of increasing border security and maintaining homeland security,” the letter reads.

Mrs. Jackson Lee currently serves as a ranking member of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security, a position that the caucus said she “stands as a strong and honest ‘voice of reason.’”
