Barack Obama, our next President

Again, you make the ignorant assumption that just because I'm not a Democrat I have to be a Republican.
If I had to choose a party to belong to, today, I am more inclined toward the Libertarian Party.
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?
... sorry, I was interrupted. If I incorrectly ID'd you as a Republican I apologize, people do it to me all the time.

Aren't there laws concerning that kind of thing?
Laws? They performed mostly at IRS getaways and DNC donation functions. And that was squats, he came in and 'cleaned' the donkey when Leo was done with him. The crowd loved it.

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?

So, in other words, Hillary and 110 other democrats were just too stupid to know they weren't given the same Intel everyone else in the world had?
Because that's what you libs are implying every time you use that same old argument.
BINGO!!! that is exactly what the liberals are saying. There are the party of sluts and hwores--doing whatever it took to appear they were in the know. When in fact they never cared. The only reason Hussein was elected was because of propaganda, not because he knew anything. We now have more people who are collective thinking in this country than we have individuals who can think for themselves. A Nation of idiots who call themselves Democrats, led by liberals. It is a sad state, for a once, free country.

No one is turned away from medical treatment even if they have no insurance and no money.
The solution is to make health care costs lower!!
Why is that concept so beyond a liberal's grasp??

<quoted text>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.
Detroit now has a population the size of El Paso, TX and needs to restructure to that model.

Detroit's budget is $1.1 billion.

El Paso's budet is $756 million.

Sounds like a 30% budget cut for starters.

"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.
Directly thereatened... directly involved... small difference.

There was no "domino theory" when the United States became involved in Vietnam. The policy being executed was called "containment".

However, the "domino theory" seemed to be proved when the communists swept through the remaining parts of Laos and Cambodia after the Democrat-controlled Congress of 1973 sabotaged South Vietnam and the United States, wouldn't you say? Laos and Cambodia fell immediately, didn't they? Malaysia stayed afloat only because Thialand was viable enough to resist the communist wave that swept Laos and Cambodia away, and Singapore was not going anywhere or bowing to anyone.
Or, were you ignorant that Laos and Cambodia were overtaken by the communists after the Democrat-controlled congress sabotaged South Vietnam?

So, you just repeated one lie the Democrats invented, and in your very first post.
Or, explain to us how the fact of history that Cambodia and Laos fell immediately after Vietnam didn't really happen.

And, you did dodge. We were discussing how the United States became involved in Vietnam, and you ignored that part of the discussion and jumped way down the road to after the point in time where US ground combat units had already arrived in Vietnam.

I knew you'd repeat one of the lies the Democrats invented. However, I really thought you'd last past the first goddam post.

That was never a problem. Children like that received the medical treatment they needed. Usually, it was paid for by donations from people you profess to hate because they were successful.
But, ObamaKare cures all of that. Let's see that girl get that surgery when she is put on a government waiting list.
Good luck.
Carol's daughter is an adult, Carol is suggesting she not pay for the hypothetical surgery so that the hospital will pass the cost on to you and me.

Carol's a socialist.

<quoted text>Another thing there has never been a Social Security Trust Fund just on paper which the Clinton Adminstration admitted in their 2000 fiscal year budget that it is just an accounting practice since 1937 is all and all taxes collected by the US Federal Government go into the US Treasury General Fund just like Social Security taxes do which has been that way since 1937 when the SCOTUS handed down their ruling in Helvering v. Davis
Any funds "loaned" to the General Fund must be paid back.

The 2011 Trustees Report Press Release stated:

"Income including interest to the combined OASDI Trust Funds amounted to $805 billion in 2011.($564 billion in net contributions,$24 billion from taxation of benefits,$114 billion in interest, and $103 billion in reimbursements from the General Fund of the Treasury—almost exclusively resulting from the 2011 payroll tax legislation.)

Total expenditures from the combined OASDI Trust Funds amounted to $736 billion in 2011.

Non-interest income fell below program costs in 2010 for the first time since 1983. Program costs are projected to exceed non-interest income throughout the remainder of the 75-year period.

The assets of the combined OASDI Trust Funds increased by $69 billion in 2011 to a total of $2.7 trillion.

During 2011, an estimated 158 million people had earnings covered by Social Security and paid payroll taxes.

Social Security paid benefits of $725 billion in calendar year 2011. There were about 55 million beneficiaries at the end of the calendar year.

The cost of $6.4 billion to administer the program in 2011 was 0.9 percent of total expenditures.

The combined Trust Fund assets earned interest at an effective annual rate of 4.4 percent in 2011.
