Barack Obama, our next President

The states that pay MORE taxes should get more taxes back, right? It is only fair right?
See? You just got schooled!!!
Texas created 45% of ALL new jobs. They have more rights that lazy ghetto Detroit lead by Liberals like you into BANKRUPTCY!!!
Who said anything about taxes? You would be absolutely wrong there as well. Seems you need some schooling, eh! 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!

So why don't blacks vote Republican? The answer is simple. Black people are not crazy. Being not crazy, they understand a simple truth about conservatives: They have never stood with, or up for, black people. Never.

Forget modern controversies like mass incarceration. Social conservatives, then based largely in the Democratic Party of the early to mid-20th century, opposed the Voting Rights Act. They opposed the Civil Rights Act. They opposed school integration. They opposed the Montgomery Bus Boycott. They opposed a law to crack down on lynching.

These are the people for whom African-Americans are now supposed to vote? To make the argument is to betray a stunning contempt for the intelligence ó and memory ó of black voters.

In talking about race, conservatives have all the moral authority of a pimp talking about women's rights.

It simply means that the president deems the threat serious enough to protect his people in harm's way. If Bush had taken the 9/11 Intel serious, there never would've been a 9/11! The largest factions of Al Qaeda is located in Africa. Is that where they originated? To relocate from Afghanistan to Africa would signify them being on the run, wouldn't it?
You are the uneducated thread racist & homophobe dummy, so don't try and project your ignorance upon others, fool.

Because, down in this dumbed down republican states, women are far better knowledge seekers &, keepers! Your men are still prehistoric cavemen, believing rape is an act of God &, that it should be law to force women who don't want to bring children into this child world that they can't care for, to have those babies &, watch mother &, child suffer. You people think your words are God's law &, anyone who opposes them should be punished to your accordance. Republicans need more gender &, cultural flexibility.

and it would probably help your case if the Bush tax cuts had helped the economy instead of giving us an economy that you need to blame on Obama.

In all ways but none, Al Qaeda is an overseas gang. The problem with gangs is, for every 1 you capture or kill, there are 5 new initiates, stupid! The saying is " we don't die, we multiply!" So are they spreading? Sure they are but, the way to combat their growing conglomeration is, to decimate their top ranks. Look up the statistics, Obama did that in 2-3 years but, just like the mythological snake, you cut off the head &, another one grows! For this same reason, law enforcement can't get one step up on hand activity in our own country, now if you can dickhead, look at it on a larger scale. I might be asking too much of a retarded, racist, Wheat Thin!

Reagan's Forgotten Tax Record

Reaganís record on raising taxes began almost the moment he entered politics. Elected governor of California in 1966, he inherited a large budget deficit from his predecessor, Pat Brown. Although a conservative, dedicated to shrinking government, Reagan nevertheless found the magnitude of spending cuts that would have been necessary in 1967 to be beyond reach. This led him to endorse a $1 billion per year tax increase, equivalent to a $17 billion tax increase today Ė an enormous sum equal to a third of state revenues at that time. Journalist Lou Cannon recounts the circumstances:

ďNo amount of budget reductions, even if they had been politically palatable, could have balanced Californiaís budget in 1967. The cornerstone of Governor Reaganís economic program was not the ballyhooed budget reductions but a sweeping tax package four times larger than the previous record California tax increase obtained by Governor Brown in 1959. Reaganís proposal had the distinction of being the largest tax hike ever proposed by any governor in the history of the United States.Ē

Reagan had little to say about these tax increases in his memoirs except to claim that he gave back $5 billion to taxpayers. However, in many cases, the tax relief consisted of tax rebates and one-shot tax cuts. In the end, it is clear that Governor Reagan presided over an astonishing expansion of taxes in California. According to the California Department of Finance, state revenues tripled from $2.9 billion in the 1966/67 fiscal year to $8.6 billion in the 1974/75 fiscal year, Reaganís last.

Almost immediately upon enactment of the 1981 tax cut, Reagan came under enormous pressure to do something about the federal budget deficit. While his preferred approach was to cut spending as much as necessary, it was not politically possible to so. His aides began pressuring him to support a tax increase. Conservative activists were appalled that Reagan would even consider such a thing, but he eventually endorsed the Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 1982. According to a Treasury Department analysis, it raised taxes by close to one percent of GDP, equivalent to $150 billion per year today, and was probably the largest peacetime tax increase in American history.

In the end, Reaganís tax legacy fits neither the right-wing nor left-wing pigeonholes. Although he cut taxes when he could, he raised them when he had to. Thatís something self-styled Reaganites today should remember.

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.

I want to apologize to my constituents, not because of my special photos that I've sent as part of a right wing conspiracy using tax dollars to investigate.

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 weíve been told.

In fact, OBAMA KILLED DETROIT AND SAVED AL QAEDA.

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:

Iíll close Gitmo.

We donít 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 wonít bring up the point that the media RARELY, IF EVER, calls Obama out on his faux pasÖ whoops, there I pointed it out and I didnít mean to.
Ok, ok, I meant to do that.

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

Just ask Nancy Pelosiís 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.

Son, I agree. We could have kept the Jimmy Carter Model going and skipped all that prosperity in between Reagan and when the Democrats took control of Congress and then the media got an Empty Suit elected in 2008.
