Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

Liars abuse and manipulate a broken system. Racism is a grievance industry for personal and political gain.
Liars and racists come in all shapes and sizes.
In 2008, an NBC/WSJ poll showed 70% of whites and 64% of blacks felt race relations were "very good".
Nothing changed except a new administration who encouraged the grievance industry to rear its ugly head.
But you don't get it, do you?
Fox talking points get old after five years.

Start With the Man in the Mirror, Don Lemon
The CNN anchor's "tough talk" fails to reflect what's really going on in the black community.
What Lemon did on his show -- wagging his finger at all the pants-sagging, littering, unwed high school dropouts -- was a mutation of truth telling. He was nothing more than a tattletale, pointing excitedly to all the things his brothers and sisters are doing wrong in the hopes of what? A reward? A pat on the back? A seat at Bill O'Reilly's table?

There's big money to be made in the Grievance Industry. The reason Juan Williams wrote his book years ago specifically about this "industry" is because he once worked for Jesse Jackson and finally realized Jackson and others like him were going to corporations, getting money deals from them to keep their mouth shuts and not label them as racists to destroy their businesses.

Juan is not conservative-leaning by anyone's standards. Yet, he is extremely passionate about the rap industry also promoting drug abuse, disrespect for women and glorifying gangs. He called it "criminal" because it's just producing more criminals.

You might be awake but you're still very much asleep.

No surprise there. Rethugs don't like telling or hearing the truth. That is why you people rely so much on Faux News and Breitbart for your "news". Garbage in, garbage out.

Wonder if Obama's father abandoning both him and his mother has anything to do with his lying disorder and resentment - and the fact his father was black and his mother was white drives his deep desire to create racial division.
Very complex man with complicated issues, this president.
His philosophy on life is easy enough to understand. He's somewhere between a leech and a sponge.

There's apparently a lot of "Uncle Toms" finally speaking out.
Demonizing other blacks for just saying what everyone knows to be true is going to backfire on the Grievance Industry. Wait and see.
a handful of 'black conservatives' does not make for 'a lot'.

a handful of black conservatives who only have a voice whenever the right wing media are on a 'black people are bad' tear who don't even start to make a dent in the black psyche.

and why are they on the tear.....the Zimmerman apology tour.

ISLAMABAD - Suicide bombers and attackers with rocket-propelled grenades assaulted a prison in Pakistan, allowing 250 inmates - including top militants - to escape, police and Taliban sources said early Tuesday.
At least eight policemen were killed, and 21 people - including civilians - were injured in the attack, which began shortly before midnight local time (3 p.m. ET) Monday.
Fighting and explosions could still be heard into the early hours of Tuesday, and security forces had imposed a curfew in order to protect civilians in the city of Dera Ismail Khan, Shaukat Yousafzai, a spokesperson for Khyber Pakhtunkwa province told NBC News.
The number of militants, if any, that escaped was unclear and could not be independently verified.
The Pakistani Taliban claimed it had released 250 prisoners during the attack on the jail complex in the mid-sized frontier town, 200 miles west of Lahore, which borders the volatile South Waziristan tribal area....(NBCWorldnews)

----
In Oct., 2009, the military mounted a major offensive against militants in S Waziristan and captured most of the main militant bases in a month, but the successes were due largely to a militant pullback after some two weeks of fighting, and by mid-2010 the militants appeared to have regrouped in N Waziristan.

Yes, the costs were given. The initial cost, and the 10 year CBO estimated cost. Go back and actually read the post you comment on, idiot.
A tax cut isn't necessarily a revenue cut. But, even if it is, it is not a spending cut, it is a tax cut.
The problem is the government spends too much. Fix that problem. If you can't fix that problem, nothing will help.
Let's not quibble about your inane diversions. Here are the facts:
Obama's government needs to increase the debt 8 percent every year just for its day-to-day existence.
The calculated growth of the economy is 2 percent, to include the growth of government, which accounts for most of the growth in the calculation of the economy. The real economy that pays for everything is roughly three quarters of the government-calculated economy.
The government-calculated economy is 15 trillion dollars. The real economy is about 12 trillion dollars. The debt is currently 17 trillion dollars, or one and a half times the size of the real economy.
Increasing the debt at 8 percent every year with a stagnant economy that is two thirds the size of the current debt is insane. It is certain to collapse the government.
The government has a spending problem.
Fix it.
I've got an idea.
No more debt. Not for any reason.
When any agency or department expends all appropriated funds, shut that agency or department down until there is more money in the treasury to appropriate.
That will fix the deficit problem and avoid the certain collapse of our government.
So, did you admit tax cuts cost money? I think you just did. The stimulus bill was 38% tax relief. Yet you just considered them costs.

The controversy over George Zimmerman's acquittal for murdering Trayvon Martin is Christmas in July for black conservatives. The professional best black friends for white conservatives who defend George Zimmerman--and by extension the White Right--are in high demand.

As such, Allen West has revealed himself to be a black man who would sell himself into chattel slavery and thank his white owners for the privilege. Shelby Steele, a brilliant man, demonstrates once more that he is psychologically damaged.

Even the D-List backbenchers, as seen in this video from Crooks and Liars, and who are the equivalent of a pee wee baseball league team, are getting a chance to show their teeth and gums as they work on their "self-hating black folks who buck-dance for the pleasures of white conservatives that watch Fox News" dance routine.

Many folks likely believe that these (and other) black conservatives are sincere. Why make such an assumption? In order for a person of color to so betray their community, serving as a human hose who ejaculates and sprays the befouled and racist talking points birthed from the Right-wing echo chamber out of their mouths, on a basic level one must convince him or herself that what they are saying is true.

Yes, money is an inducement for betrayal and foolishness. But, in keeping with my argument that politics is just like professional wrestling--where the latter is actually more honest--a person has to still sell the performance if they want to get repeat work.

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.

Dang! What an insightful and intelligent post!
The last paragraph especially: "The only reason they are at war with us is we exist. If we didn't exist, they would be at war with whatever other country occupied our place in the world, which is superior to their place, which is the real reason Islam is at war with everything it is in contact with."
Tenzing and most all liberals forget radical Islam is at war with the entire world. What did some of these other countries do besides join the 21st century?
Islam is a medieval version of racial superiority. That's the problem. You can't negotiate anything with anyone that thinks you are a lesser human than they.
Why everyone hasn't figured this out is beyond me.
The Arabs will be at war with everything until they get rid of their racial superiority attitude.

Bush was looking for a fight from the moment he was elected. Remember his inauguration speech? He was a man obsessed to avenge his father:
"We will confront weapons of mass destruction, so that a new century is spared new horrors."
And he continued to lay the groundwork from there....
February 16 2001:
"Saddam Hussein has got to understand that we expect him to conform to the agreement that he signed after Desert Storm. We will enforce the no-fly zone, both south and north. Our intention is to make sure that the world is as peaceful as possible. And we're going to watch very carefully as to whether or not he develops weapons of mass destruction, and if we catch him doing so we'll take the appropriate action."
February 22, 2001:
"...the primary goal is to make it clear to Saddam that we expect him to be a peaceful neighbor in the region and we expect him not to develop weapons of mass destruction. And if we find him doing so, there will be a consequence."
February 27, 2001:
State of the Union "Our nation also needs a clear strategy to confront the threats of the 21st century -- threats that are more widespread and less certain. They range from terrorists who threaten with bombs to tyrants in rogue nations intent upon developing weapons of mass destruction. To protect our own people, our allies and friends, we must develop and we must deploy effective missile defenses. "
June 12, 2001:
Press Conference with Spanish President Aznar "Those new threats are terrorism, based upon the capacity of some countries to develop weapons of mass destruction, and therefore, hold the United States and our friends hostage."
There are new threats, new forms of terror: cyberterrorism, fundamentalist extremists, extremism that certainly threatens us, threatens Israel, who is our strong ally and friend, threatens Russia. We've got to deal with it. The threat in Europe at sometime, perhaps. We must deal with that issue. And one way to do that is coordinate security arrangements, is to talk about how to -- as to how to deal with the new threats, but also is to be able to have the capacity to rid the world of blackmail, terrorist blackmail"
August 7, 2001:
Press Conference
"As I said, Saddam Hussein is a menace, he's still a menace and we need to keep him in check, and will.
Q Are they ratcheting it up, though? We've had a lot of incidents lately.
THE PRESIDENT: No -- are they, the Iraqis? He's been a menace forever, and we will do -- he needs to open his country up for inspection, so we can see whether or not he's developing weapons of mass destruction."
What? Couldn't be...In August, 2001, the president answered "No" to the question pf whether the Iraqis were "ratcheting" up their development of weapons of mass destruction.
Bush didn't care who was behind 9/11....his obsession with Saddam clouded his judgment. He ignored the intelligence reports and made his decision based on emotion rather than common sense.
https://www.mtholyoke.edu/acad/intrel/bush/ir...
Yep. That's why so many thought one of his personal goals while in office was to finish what others thought his father should have done.

With that said, it makes a case for bushie boy having let 9/11 occur if what Condi Rice says is true about being at battle stations.

He really made it a personal vendetta.

The Agriculture Department has paid millions of dollars to dead farmers over the last several years, according to an audit released Monday.
The Government Accountability Office estimated in a new report that agencies within the department may have paid more than $30 million to thousands of deceased recipients between 2008 and 2012. The findings come as Congress tries to pass a new farm bill, and could stir concerns among conservatives that the government's many subsidy programs are not being carefully managed.

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.

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.
