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 ... Read more

What would happen???

You'd have abortion banned, gay marriage banned, and spear hunting in Montana. THAT'S what would happen because the Tea Party is singularly focussed on REDUCING confiscatory taxes and shrinking government!!!

The physical laws of the alternate universe occupied by Teabaggers dictate that you have to grow government in order to shrink it and you have to increase spending in order to reduce taxation.

Duh!

If we had today, the same number of workers in our labor force as when Obama took office, we'd have 12% unemployment. Thanks to creative bookkeeping, it's been deceptively manipulated down to around 7.5% for the last 4 1/2 years, still at historic sustained highs. These manipulations are for your benefit nitwit, and you suck 'em up like an unattended beer, just as Obama knew you would. Who better to do his dirty work than a vacuous sponge.
How has it "been deceptively manipulated down"?

Anthony Weiner, Eliot Spitzer, Bob Filner, the Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castros all democRats, all about the "War on Women"...

Those perverts all answer the question about the "War on Women" and which side actually 'wants women barefoot, illiterate, and pregnant'...

AND... who make women ride the caboose on the negro express, with self-hate black men haten on women, hate filled black women always in the back of the bus...

According to the Daily News, "What the neighbors saw was terrifying and dehumanizing: Naked women on dog leashes, crawling in the dirt in Ariel Castros backyard a deranged liberal. A lady clutching an infant and pounding on a window for help."

When the real acts of "War on Women" are perpetrated by democRats, in the manner that even the most zealous democRat strategist couldn't have dreamed up in their worst nightmares -- involving perversion, abduction, imprisonment, rape, torture, malnutrition, beatings while pregnant, and killing babies -- then only do democRats think the party affiliation is not relevant.

Oh and Kermit Gosnell ....and his car had a Brother Obama bumper-sticker on it.

It's the culture...

Adam Kokesh has made his point:

He's currently being held without bail for openly carrying a shotgun in D.C. He's also facing drug possession charges resulting from a SWAT raid on his home.

So, he hasn't committed any crimes agains property or persons but is being held with no recourse for not committing any crimes against property or persons.

He has made his point.

PS: In searching news articles about him I saw him frequently described as a "pro-gun" activist. That's incorrect, Kokesh is a civil rights activist making personal sacrifices for our rights in the tradition of the likes of MLK and Edward Snowden.

PPS: Kokesh is a decorated veteran of the Iraq War thus demonstrating how grateful our government is for his service in executing their policy.

HEY STUPID! Do you even realize that he was talking about Medicare, which turned out to be one of the most successful and popular government programs in the history of this nation? If nitwits like you weren't so phobic you'd realize that expanding it to everyone would be a boon to the economy since employers would be relieved of the burden of providing health insurance to their employees and could put the savings into higher wages, machinery or even hiring more workers.
Socialized medicine is the government taking our money involuntarily to give it back to us as they see fit.

Reagan had it right when he talked about supporting the Kerr/Mills bill where the federal government provides money to the states and local communities to be used at the discretion of the state to help those in need.

As usual, that bill was rejected in lieu of a federally run government program.

There's a reason Medicare funds have dried up and doctors are turning away Medicare patients by the droves. The government can't manage anything and it's become a time-consuming and costly bureaucratic nightmare of regulations and paperwork.

This was just the first step to controlling the masses. Obamacare is the coup d'état.

When the government controls your health care, it controls you.
It's obvious to everyone by now it's disrupting the marketplace, it's going to cost more money than anyone expected and 30 million people will still be uninsured.

The majority have always been against it as the solution to the health care problem and still are.

So the only question left is why would you want the government to control you and make personal decisions for you?

I think nanoanomaly was saying that he was just like Barney Frank. I think we can assume that nanoanomaly is not a retired US Congressman so there must be some other distinguishing characteristic of Frank's that nanoanomaly identifies with.
Wonder what that could be?
No one is like the unique Bunny Fwank who can speak out of both sides of his mouth and have fun with both ends of his body.

So you are wrong on three accounts:

#1. You DON'T think

#2. You assume too much.

#3. Your great difficulty with ferreting out distinguishing characteristics of just about anything has you grabbing men's crotches in the mistaken belief that they are doorknobs and you are just passing through.

Block grants to States are still "the government taking our money involuntarily to give it back to us as they see fit."

I believe it was RealDave last night who pointed out that Gramm, Leach and Bliley were all Republicans.

It wasn't the act itself that was the problem. It was passed by an overwhelming majority in both parties.

It was the lack of oversight once it was passed. Bill Clinton admitted this years later.

It was also the pressure placed on banks by the Clinton administration to loosen lending standards when minorities and organizations like ACORN began complaining about "redlining" and loans being given to only rich white people.

Republicans weren't altogether innocent but at least they realized by 2004 that danger was ahead. Democrats were still trying to convince themselves and everyone else all was just fine.

Of course, all wasn't just fine.

If more Democrats had realized like Republicans that more oversight was needed back in 2004, the crisis could have been avoided.

You're right, they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized, leaving us vulnerable to attacks.
They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger.
First poster hit the nail on the head.

First Benghazi, now closing embassies in multiple places. Instead of "Mission Accomplished" and "Al Qaeda is on the run" like Obama said just before Benghazi & the last election, we have a growing threat now.

Democrats have nobody to blame except themselves.

We also now are welfare/food stamp nation with more people who have given up and in despair. Jobs are trending to be "part-time" jobs. The liberals got their Obamcare, but what good is health insurance if you can't afford your mortgage or rent?

They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger and destroyed prosperity for our children.

Why does it matter whether the school is private or public? If it's the same amount of our tax dollars, provides jobs and more importantly, if it improves the quality for the kids, why not private as long as there are equal chances for kids to go either way?

"The White House has reversed course and agreed to continue funding private school vouchers for a select number of children in the District of Columbia."

Guess you didn't get the memo, Dumb Dave?

Fudging the numbers so people won't panic. The latest BLS jobs report for July also mentioned that "a large state" hadn't reported its numbers. That alone would alter the overall results.

No one blames Obama for the skyrocketing unemployment after the bottom fell out. We do blame him for not placing blame where it rightly belonged - with both parties - but especially his own party where F&F were concerned and urging banks to loosen lending standards to unqualified buyers.

Did you know 1 out of 4 people between the ages of 18 and 31 are still living with their parents - 5 years after Obama took office and after numerous failed attempts to stimulate the economy?

That's one statistic that isn't fudged and speaks reams about the real state of the economy.

How long is it supposed to take? And how can it possibly get better when Obamacare is making things worse?

As early as 2006, top advisers to Bush dismissed warnings from people inside and outside the White House that housing prices were inflated and that a foreclosure crisis was looming. And when the economy deteriorated, Bush and his team misdiagnosed the reasons and scope of the downturn. As recently as February, for example, Bush was still calling it a "rough patch."

The result was a series of piecemeal policy prescriptions that lagged behind the escalating crisis.

"There is no question we did not recognize the severity of the problems," said Al Hubbard, Bush's former chief economic adviser, who left the White House in December 2007. "Had we, we would have attacked them."

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/21/business/wo... ;

just take responsibility for voting for Bush. quit trying to blame everything that Bush screwed up on the democrats. it's not the way it happened and you know it.
