Barack Obama, our next President

Jim DeMint Says GOP Will Destroy America To Stop Obamacare
The Republicans seem to be aware that their obsession with killing the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, is unpopular and damaging to their party. Certainly, most everyone else is. Forty votes to repeal a healthcare overhaul based on a Republican healthcare overhaul and not a single jobs bill since 2008.
Former Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), whom you might remember dropping out of politics in April to go intoÖa more lucrative, seven figure form of politics with the Heritage Foundation, told Newsmax TV yesterday that the GOP should be willing to destroy America if that is what it takes to get rid of medical care for the American people.
Interestingly, DeMint says Obamacare is more damaging to America ďthan anything Iíve seen pass in my lifetime.Ē
Obamacare apparently being more damaging than a Republican destruction of America itself. So what he is saying is that the GOP must be willing to do more damage to America than the most damaging thing theyíve seen so far, in order to stop the second-most damaging thing done to America.
Thatís like burning down your house to stop a leaky pipe from flooding your bathroom.

Whatís the Matter With White People? A Modest Call for Personal Responsibility

One in seven white women, for instance, smoke cigarettes while pregnant, thereby endangering the health of their soon-to-be-born children: a rate that is 60 percent higher than the rate for black women. White women were also about 30 percent more likely than black women to drink alcohol when pregnant in 2010-2011, thanks to a significant reduction in gestational alcohol consumption among black women compared to previous years and a slight increase in such consumption among whites. So is there something about white culture that contributes to this disproportionately cavalier attitude among white women when it comes to the health of their developing fetuses?

And what is it with white people and suicide? Although suicide touches all communities, the numbers show that whites end our own lives at a far higher rate than blacks. In 2010, for instance, whites committed suicide at a rate that was roughly three times higher than the rate for blacks. Is there something about whites, culturally, that can explain this disproportionate inability to cope with lifeís pressures, or with depression, or the other precursors to suicide?

And whatís the deal with white people and drug overdoses? In 2010, for example, white men were nearly twice as likely as black men to die from an opioid overdose and white women were more then twice as likely to die from such an overdose as black women. Interestingly, not only are whites apparently having a hard time handling our drugs, but even more telling, there has been a shift in the rates of opioid overdose deaths since the late 1990s, at which point black men were actually 44 percent more likely than their white counterparts to die this way. Since 1999, while black male opioid drug overdose deaths have fallen, rates for whites have increased by 137 percent! In other words, black men are taking it easier on the heavy stuff, while apparently white men are swallowing Hydrocodone like Tic-Tacs. Whatís up with that?

And donít even get me started on binge-drinking! It had been a while since Iíd looked at the data on this, and although I knew white rates of heavy boozing were higher than the rates for blacks about a decade ago, I had hoped that we might have learned to control ourselves in the interim, but no such luck apparently. In 2011, for instance, white folks were still about one-fourth more likely than blacks to have binged in the past month, and 78 percent more likely to binge drink regularly (5 or more times in one month).

....Though I have no doubt there are redeeming aspects to white culture, with data such as this, and in so many categories of apparent and overwhelming dysfunction, can any rational person deny the crisis in white America? How much longer will we ignore the pathological behaviors of the nationís dominant racial group? How long will we allow whites to blame their problems on affirmative action, Mexican immigrants, high taxes, Obamacare, Islam, oh, and black people, when it is so blindingly obvious that we are our own worst enemies?

Enough is enough. Time for some tough love. Time for white leaders and white-led organizations to finally speak out about the ruinous behavior of white children and their Oxy-addled, thrice-divorced, morally reprobate parents.

And if they arenít up to the job ó and of course, they arenít ó then I suppose a decent fallback option would be to just ignore everything they say about the shortcomings of others. After all, projection isnít just a room at the movie theatre, or a talent they teach actors, if you know what I mean.

And why are white youth so disrespectful to their parents? According to the available evidence whites between 12 and 17 are nearly twice as likely as their black counterparts to have fought with their parents at least 10 times in the past year. Why no lectures from the cultural warriors of the right towards smart-mouthed white teens, whose disrespect for their parents clearly indicates a pathologically delinquent tendency? And please, someone develop this lecture quickly as we have a 12-year old who I fear may be tempted to try out some of that white-culture-backsassing-shit on us any day now!

No, I want to apologize for my bad hearing. I thought Obama said he saved Detroit and killed bin Laden. But oh my God, I got it backwards. LOL.

But gosh, all of us Democrats led by the main stream media, just keep getting it wrong folks.
It seems that Obama meant something entirely different when he claimed that he KILLED bin Laden and SAVED Detroit.

Because, you know, like a lot of problems Obama has tried to tackle, the result has been the exact opposite of what we’ve been told.


And it seems: HE MEANT TO DO THAT, in the words of the immortal of poet of the Big Eighties, Pee Wee Herman.

But what can you expect from a guy who thinks the United States has 57 states, that port of Savannah resides on the Gulf of Mexico and China provides a model economy.

As community organizer, it seems, Obama rarely travelled outside of, say, West 26th Street and East 79th street in Chicago, at least mentally, politically and philosophically.

Remember when we had Bushisms? The Obamaisms are much better! Wink, Wink! My favorites:

I’ll close Gitmo.

We don’t spy on Americans.

The economy is finally gaining traction.

Obamacare will reduce the deficit.

The new Egyptian government is democratic.

Welcome to Recovery Summer.

Green jobs are important to stimulate the economy.

We are not arming Al Qaeda.

Benghazi was a long time ago.

There is no Soviet domination of Eastern Europe.

There is no sexual relationship.

I won’t bring up the point that the media RARELY, IF EVER, calls Obama out on his faux pas… whoops, there I pointed it out and I didn’t mean to.
Ok, ok, I meant to do that.

Because there is a larger point here: You cannot treat the truth like it’s flexible or pliable or moldable to fit your circumstances without an awful lot of stretching that goes into it.

Just ask Nancy Pelosi’s cosmetic surgeon. You can stretch around the edges as much as you want, but that only goes so far. Or when I take a special photo of myself, the same applies.

Right now the Democrats, as represented by Obama, are mostly stretch, and no substance. But Obama was way cooler than Romney and that was all that mattered.

I love that!

Can I borrow that slogan? I will give you credit!!!

Those" blue magnet reserves" as y'all like to call them, are most of America's major cities. More people= more taxes! Now you get it. What I said was gov't funding. States such as mine New Jersey, pays more into the gov't than they receive back in gov't funding. Gov't funding extends far beon taxes. Republican states with far less people, receive more homeland security funds as well, while the democrat states are the ones to pay for it. You've just been schooled &, you didn't even have to pay for it!
"Gov't funding extends far beon taxes"

WRONG again!!!

Government funding IS taxes!!!

You Liberals live on a lala land!!!

Who do you think pays fur those "government funding"?

You really think that money is not taxes but money borrowed from China!

You must be a Libtard to believe that money is free and we will never have to pay it back!!!

Guess who owns your roadway tolls, museums, city parking lots, stadiums, etc!!! CHINA!!! You had just being schooled!!!

PD: Since I can see you do not know about economics, I can then tell you it is China but in reality is foreign people (government and investors) from Saudi Arabia using Chinese debt (from US Treasury) peg to petrodollars!!!

The inner city of Detroit is on life support because the wealthiest outlier neighborhoods of Detroit , like Bloomfield Hills , robbed it by not paying its fair share of city tax revenues. So, there are parts of Detroit that are doing very well ,but not for long if they continue to ignore the problems in the inner core of Detroit where most of the productive workers live and struggle.

North Carolina, Your Anti-Sharia Law Takes the Cake

Why would Republicans in North Carolina feel the need to prevent a threat they admit isnít real? Even the North Carolina Bar Association called the legislation unnecessary.

Maybe looking at the legislative history of this proposed bill will give you some insight. The Republican-controlled Houseís version also included provisions to restrict a womenís right to an abortion. So in the very same breath these Republicans were trying to prevent Islamic law from being imposed, they were trying to impose Christian law.

No surprise, then, that they fear Muslims will be trying to impose their own religious-based lawsóitís exactly what these Republicans are trying to do.

....You have to wonder if the members of the North Carolina Legislature believe Christianity was created in America. Maybe they think Jesus was born in Iowa, then immediately wrapped in an American flag, and driven home in a Ford pick up while being serenaded by a Hank Williams, Jr. song.

The reality is that Jesus was born in the same part of the world as were Moses, Abraham, and Mohammed, and all these religions were imported to our land. The only religion not foreign involves rain dances and praying to the Great Spirit.

Taking about parking lots owned by China:

Here is another evidence Liberals are ALWAYS wrong: also it shows their typical dictatorship approach to everything, that is why we Conservatives are loaded and ready for them!!!

Many UAW locals, as well as the Solidarity House headquarters in Detroit, post signs that say they don't allow nonunion vehicles in their parking lots.

Five years ago, the policy resulted in a firestorm of public criticism when the UAW kicked out Marine Corps reservists with foreign cars or who displayed pro-President George W. Bush bumper stickers from the Solidarity House parking lot. The 1st Battalion, 24th Marines have an office near the UAW headquarters.

Within two days, UAW President Ron Gettelfinger dropped the union's policy for the Marines.

"I made the wrong call on the parking issue, and I have notified the Marine Corps that all reservists are welcome to park at Solidarity House as they have for the past 10 years," Gettelfinger said in a mid-March 2005 statement.
