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

Wishful thinking by you. No Americans are going to be left to vote for republicans as fast as their popularity is dropping to zero. After 2014 midterms, the GOP might be lucky if they still retain the weak , third party affiliation that they had when they were created way back when Abraham Lincoln bolted the Whig party to lead them.

Republican Led Texas Is a National Role Model For All The Wrong Reasons

It is natural for citizens to have affinity for their home country whether they are patriotic or not, but it is often curious why they take pride in a nation that treats its least fortunate citizens with contempt and apparent disgust they exist. The state of the disadvantaged in America is certainly nothing to be proud of, but it would be worse if Republicans controlled both houses of Congress and the White House. For a glimpse into the deplorable conditions in this country if Republicans were in charge there is a prime example that should serve as a warning that no matter how dreadful America is as a nation, it is nothing near as bad as Texas. It is true that Texas is a large state and its prideful and devoted residents are wont to warn the rest of the nation “not to mess with Texas” and claim it is number one, but the areas the state leads the nation in are as embarrassing as those that put it at the bottom of some very pathetic categories. However, the sad state of affairs in Texas are prime examples of Republicans’ intent for America that they doubtless would be proud of regardless the damaging effects on the people.

There are a significant number of Texans who yearn to secede from the Union and form their own republic, and there is likely an equal number of Americans willing to let the state leave and become the banana republic state Republicans are attempting to create. A banana republic typically has stratified social classes, including a large impoverished working class and a ruling plutocracy that comprises the elites of business and politics who control and exploit their citizens’ social and economic plight. It makes sense that Texas Republicans are proud of their handiwork because they do rank at or near the top of several categories near and dear to conservatives, and possibly they are just as pleased at their ranking at or near the bottom of an equal number of areas endemic to conservative policies.

Texans are prone to boast the superiority of their education system because they do have the nation’s second highest public school enrollment, but they also have the lowest percent of their population (25 and older) with a high school diploma coming in at 50th in the nation. In this one area Texas Republicans are the model national Republicans are aching to follow because Texas’ low graduation rate reflects their paltry investment (49) in education spending and their children’s futures. Republicans in Congress have made slashing education spending a key component of their austerity policy and doubtless their goal is following Texas Republicans’ lead to produce a quarter of the population without a basic high school education. It is not cruel enough for Republicans to keep Texans uneducated, so they are going out of their way to keep their residents sick as well.

....If Americans want a vision of a libertarian paradise Republicans are desperate to create, there are several Republican-controlled states that serve as a warning that the conservative vision for America is a nation of poor, uneducated, sick, and poverty-ridden citizens struggling to survive. Texas is a prime example because they encapsulate every devastating policy national Republicans are desperate to enact. There is less and less to be proud of in America based on the way it treats its least fortunate citizens, but as horrendous as the nation is as a whole, it pales in comparison to the cold-bloodedness and cruelty Texas Republicans are inflicting on its own residents. It is obvious that when they say “don’t mess with Texas,” Republicans mean do not upset the stellar model of inhumanity congressional Republicans intend following to create a nation as bad off as the state of Texas.

There were no middle class tax rate cuts.
The economy still sucks despite pissing away $1 billion plus on Porkulus.
That's equivocating, the payroll tax cut was a direct cut for the middle class and it was a reduction in rates in that a lower percentage was deducted.

A $400 temporary tax credit is not a tax cut and did nothing for the economy.
As for your 6.2% claim, only if your income was just $6450 per year, hardly "middle class."
This tax credit had an income limit of $75K, so much of the middle class was left out entirely.
Just another wealth redistribution scheme.
Neither were Bush's tax "cuts" as PD pointed out.

Victim Disarmament Zone: Apartment Management Firm Prohibits Residents From Owning Firearms and Weapons

Imagine you’ve been living in your home or apartment for several years. You’re an avid hunter, sports shooter, or simply someone who wants to protect their family should an individual with criminal intent coming breaking down your door. You own a handgun, rifle, crossbow, or other self defense weapon.

All of a sudden you receive a memo from your management company or Homeowners Association advising you of a policy change that you can no longer own a weapon if you live on the property. As an American you’d likely be surprised at such a note in your mailbox, especially considering that the fundamental law of the land gives you the right to own a firearm or weapon for self defense.

But this is exactly what happened to tenants of the Oakwood apartment complex in Castle Rock, Colorado http://www.whitepages.com/business/oakwood-ap... .

The moslem terrorists are like Chicago Gang bangers: You kill the head guy and another one is ready to take his place. You don't like the new guy, you split off and become another terrorist group. They have more power split and more memebers than with one leader. They now have several leaders.

Yes thee was moron, it was called the Make Work Pay tax credit which was a 6.2% tax credit given to working middle class Americans. Was it meant to be permanent? No, but neither were the Bush tax cuts.
You're an idiot Galt.
Everyone in Illinois got screwed, you know O'bama's home state? When O'bama gave the 6.2 so called tax credit the liberal governor at the very same time raised the income tax 66% and no it was not meant to permanent but it is going to be now. So now only did they not get a tax cut they took a huge hit. No wonder Illinois is the worst state in the country. O'bama cut his teeth on the corruption of Illinois and screwing the tax payer.

Well, folks...here he is. The Magic Negro can't get rational American adults convinced to fall for Obamacare so he's going into grade schools and high schools using OUR money to promote his boondoggle amongst young minds of mush.

This tactic is as old as the hills. Stalin used it. Hitler used it, Castro, Mao and just about every marxist/socialist promoter on the planet has used it and now the Azzhole-In-Chief is doing it.

You're an elite from the government and labor unions?

Just kidding. I agree that congress and the president should be included in Obamacare. It would be the best healthcare in history.

Are you saying that union members are exempt because they already have their own insurance? Most working people fall into that category both in the private sector and public employees.
