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 ... Full Story

Looks like the military machine is working on increasing our electronic surveillance in the sky to eliminate some of the independent third party contractors that can't be trusted to have our best interest in hand. Where there is a will, there is a way.
"The U.S. Navy has extended its (2004) contract with Boeing Co. for P-8A Poseidon airplanes, the company said Thursday.
It ordered 13 more of the planes, which are based on a 737 airframe and are used for anti-submarine, anti-surface and surveillance missions, for $1.98 billion.
The deal is the extension of an existing contract that is ultimately planned to include 100 Poseidons. The Navy has now ordered 37 and Boeing has delivered 10, with the first planes due to be operational by the end of the year."
The P-8A is designed to operate in conjunction with the Broad Area Maritime Surveillance unmanned aerial vehicle.

HEY STUPID! When you raise the minimum wage then people have more money in their pockets which they spend and buy stuff which in turn stimulates the economy.
Community colleges are one of our greatest resources. They used to be just stepping stones to a four year college but now they offer courses like precision machining, CAD, electrical engineering, computer systems engineering, nuclear medicine, medical imaging and many more needed skills.
You're the idiot!
Community colleges are worthless and none of the courses tat they offer should ever be called "engineering" or "medicine", which is gross consumer fraud.

Higher minimum wage just causes higher unemployment, particularly among minorities.

The debt has not tripled. You people are dumber than sh*t.
The Debt when Obama took office was around 10.5 trillion.
The financial meltdown was announced in August of 2008. The Democrats had controlled Congress for 18 months, not two years. What policy did they change to create this?
The Recession started in 4th quarter of 2007. Please list the legislation the Democrats passed in the first 9 months of 2007 that created this recession. How much debt is directly attributabe to the Bush recession?
The housing collapse started in 2006.
Carol, you keep worshiping George Bush, Eric Cantor,John Boehner, Mitch McConnell & Paul Ryan. They took us from the balance budget you fricken idiots vlim to love to economic disaster. ON PURPOSE. They voted to take us off that path.
The national deficit was nowhere near $17 trillion in 2008.

Obama gets a pass for the first few years after the crisis. But because he was more concerned about passing Obamacare, he is responsible for the deficit tripling under his watch and slowing down the economy and job growth because of it.

Back in 2010, CBS News reported estimates put the deficit near $20 trillion by 2016 and almost $26 trillion by 2020.

DEMOCRATS The architects of financial deregulation, such as former Senator Phil Graham and President Bill Clinton were rewarded for their service with fortunes of their own. The free market dupes, who aided and abetted Bill and Phil and misrepresented the repeal of financial stability as a new beginning for laissez faire capitalism, still pretend that the crisis resulted from Congress requiring banks to make mortgage loans to poor black people who could not pay.

The lack of reality in America is extreme. I do not believe anything like it has ever existed in the modern world. Essentially, no one in government or out understands anything.

The combination of the power of vested interests with ideological thinking remote from empirical reality is destroying the US economy and the economic prospects of the American people. The employment profile of the US economy is increasingly that of a third world country. Economic security, except for the rich, has disappeared. A large and growing percentage of the population experiences the insecurity of poverty or near-poverty, while the waiting lists for $50 million yachts expands. The distribution of income is so skewed upward that people of enormous wealth bid up the prices of used Ferraris from the 1950s and 1960s to $12,000,000 and $35,000,000. I can remember when a used Ferrari was something that a person with a moderate income could afford to purchase. I have a friend who bought and sold for $9,000 in the 1960s the Ferrari that last sold for $35 million.

Detroit, once the fourth largest American city and the manufacturing powerhouse of the world, is bankrupt. The populations of the cities that once were America’s thriving manufacturing base are declining. Cleveland has boarded up homes. St. Louis has 20 percent of its homes vacant. Welfare is under attack by the Republicans and even some Democrats as the plight of the population worsens and despair rises.

Washington only responds to the half dozen powerful, rich private interest groups that fund election campaigns. The American people have no one to represent them. The American people have been placed outside the system of “democratic capitalism” which is only for the one percent.

As Jeffrey St. Clair has made clear, America no longer has a left-wing. America is a right-wing world in which people, including “progressives” have been brainwashed into perceiving reality in racial contrast: the whites are well off and the blacks are poor and destitute.

This is the false reality of the Matrix. As whites are a larger percentage of the population than blacks, there are more poor whites than poor blacks. Moreover, the percentage of poor whites is growing. The way the jobs-offshoring, bail out the rich, US economy operates today makes every one poor, including the remnants of America’s once flourishing middle class. It is not a racial issue. It is a class issue. A few people have the power, and they are driving everyone else into the ground. The US government is their agent.

As usual, you're in denial the Democrats had a little something to do with the housing collapse and the financial meltdown - especially since the spending increased the most during the last two years before the meltdown when they controlled Congress.
You also forgot to mention the debt has tripled and will quadruple under this administration. Before it's all over but the cryin'.
lol! You idiots keep making that same unsupported claim of the housing / financial crisis as being a political issue...

So go wave the flag, support the troops, believe the government’s and media’s lies, but unless you are the well-connected one percent, don’t expect any future for your children. You have been sold out by “your” government. Obama is making pretty speeches, but only the stupid will be fooled.

Before the Democrats said everything was just fine with bad mortgage loans up until the very end, unemployment averaged in the 5% range during Bush's entire two terms.

It's estimated there are 3 to 4 Billion calls and emails per DAY just in the US. If we go by the low 3 Billion and each is read or listened in on just for 1 minute that's 50,000,000 hours per day. How many people does it take to listen in or read 50 Million hours of info per day?
Repub math.
If the government listens to just one conversation without a warrant, that is unacceptable.

Republicans pass bills they know will go nowhere & hope that Reid puts them up to a vote so they can use the votes as fodder in the next campaign.
Perhaps one day, Mr Eed will put his country ahead of his party. Mr Eed bitches about government run programs but gladly participates in them. Pathetic
Perhaps one day Hairball Reid will put country ahead of party and allow a vote on legislation to save America from ObamaKKKare.
