Of course we're not happy nitwit! We have a GOP controlled House blocking any kind of legislation that would actually improve the economy. It's not the President who's throwing a wrench into the works, it's obstructionist Republicans who wasted 60 million taxpayer dollars trying to repeal the ACA, an effort they knew was doomed to failure.
But go ahead Carol, keep blaming the black guy with the funny name.
You're an idiot Carol.
Who's been blocking the budget for, what is it now, 5 years?
Who brought the deficit down from 1.6 trillion to less than 1.3 trillion?
It seems that it is necessary for Congress to be blocked from doing anything for this government to avoid certain collapse.

No more debt. Not for any reason. When any agency or department expends all the money appropriated for it, shut it down until there is more money in the treasure to appropriate for it.

And, how about a goddam budget. We are up to our eyeballs in debt on the verge of government collapse, and the Demcorats' solution to that problem is to get rid of the budget. You can't get more insane than that.

Shut the government down when there's no money in the Treasury to appropriate.

Once again stupid, sequestration was a Republican idea.
Once again, name caller who can't make a point without being one, cutting the deficit and federal budget spending is not only a good idea but an absolute necessity.

The Obama White House described the bipartisan debt deal that included sequestration as "a win for the economy and budget discipline." The Obama administration described sequestration specifically as a "strong enforcement mechanism to make all sides come together."

Republicans and Democrats blamed each other but leaders of both parties initially praised the idea of mandatory spending cuts when they were initially proposed and signed into law.

http://uspolitics.about.com/od/thefederalbudg...

The problem is when one side doesn't want to compromise on their pet spending projects because it might cost them votes.

Just like Obamacare and Democrats pushing Republicans out of the way, so was "Obamaquester".

That's when Obama began his "the sky is falling" speech tour. He should have been hammering out a compromise between Democrats and Republicans. That's what leaders do.

Tell us about that.
Here's the post again for your convenient reference:

The "Homeowner Society" was just part of the deal the Democrats had with the Republicans to support the war in Iraq.
If you noticed, it was only after they had gotten everything they possibly could from the Republicans before they turned on them and began to oppose the war in Iraq.
To repeat:
The avalanche didn't start until two years after the Democrats took over full oversight of the financial institutions that caused the economic collapse.
During this period of "Housing started its slide in 2006", we had two years of constant lies from Christopher Dodd and Barney Frank. Christopher Dodd was being paid more in bribes by the financial institutions that caused the collapse than any other person in the entire Congress. Barney Frank threw his male page off his New York hotel balcony and got busted for running a male prostitution ring out of his house, and who knows hom many other felonies Barney Frank committed that we never heard of, so they didn't have to bribe him.
Just how uninformed are you?

We both don't like frauds, and you and I both agree Barack Obama is one of the biggest frauds ever pulled off in history.
But I just choose not to judge his mother.
She had no idea her son would become the president and would lie about and conceal everything in his past to become the president.
He's the one responsible for that. Not her.
I only blame her for raising an anti-capitalist son and, from all appearances, even lied to him, perhaps, about who his real father is.
Then again, maybe she didn't, but a hopeful presidential candidate having a Communist father wouldn't have gotten elected.
It's all just so murky - his past. And he wants more than anything for it to stay that way.
I agree.
Like I said, there is a special place in heaven for people who were made to suffer like her.

Assuming this is true (you didn't provide a source), it's not about not wanting children to be fed. It would be great if that's all SNAP was used for and to feed the truly needy.
It's about a massive federal government not overseeing the abuse and fraud because of its massive size which is taking money out of the paychecks of the middle and lower middle classes who are struggling to survive and feed their children without food stamps.
Don't you care about hardworking Americans who are just getting by without food stamps having to pay for those who have no problem abusing the broken system, especially since this president stifled jobs with Obamacare and encourages a welfare state?
You must know abuse and fraud is going on everywhere. There are absolutely no restrictions and no oversight. It's a smorgasbord of entitlements to anyone without a conscience.
Surely, you know there are people who have no conscience and abuse the broken system at others' expense.
Right?
I Sure do, let's start with the rich. Loopholes designed for &, taken advantage of by the rich to cut their obligatory tax contribution. These same loopholes are not privy to the lower classes you spoke of. Then let's talk about big business such as, oil. How is it a industry annually making record profits need subsides. Same can be said for the agricultural industry, farms, congress, the medical field etc... So why is it inbred in you to look at & point at those taken the smallest portion of of tax payers money. I'll tell you why. You look down on those not of equal financial status as you &, look up to those of greater financial status. It's a republican trait, the reason you won't win another election in the near future!

Before the sky really DIDN'T fall, Obama tried to scare us into thinking it would because those mean old republicans wouldn't give him what he wanted.

All of your post is BS, Petey? How much money has Barack Hussein Obama wasted 'trying'.... to implement the monstrosity, and all the rest of his ill-fated programs? Again Petey, What is the U.S. Government required to pay for by the U.S. Constitution? Answer, It's defense. You're the idiot, but don't have enough gray matter to understand it.

In 2006 Frank & Dodd were in minority positions. Nice try.
And really, bringing back the "super Barney" argument how one overweight gay guy defeated the entire Republican led House & Republican administration from his minority position in Congress?
In 2007 they were the controlling forces in the oversight of the financial institutions that collapsed our economy after 2 years of their constant lies and oversight.

In 2003 the CRA was an obvious failure and looming disaster, according to the Director of OFHEO in his testimony to Congress. It wasn't until 2006 that the effects began to take it's toll in housing construction.
The Democrats' Marxist CRA welfare home loan program collapsed the econoomy after 2 years oversight by Democrats.
It's that simple.

When will you all realize that everything on earth is inner connected &, in some sense, 1 thing is the food to another? There's a guy on the internet that called every city that was going to be hit hard by tornados 3 days before they hit. He's not a psychic, he didn't make predictions. He simply identified the hot spots left by chemtrails. 1 by 1, he pointed out every city 3 days in advance. The more man fucks with the earth, the more the entire economical system is destroyed &, affected. Same goes with nature & it's forces! I remember telling you about this ( all the animals dying) in a previous discussion on global warming. Now you've read the words of a whiteman, you're worried!
It's not global warming. Some scientists speculate it's the increase in pesticides in the environment. Others speculate it's the magnetic poles are shifting.

But it's not global warming. The average global temperature has gone down, not up, in recent years. The average global temperatures dropped since at least 2002. The temperature has decreased by 0.74F (0.39C) since January 24, 2006.

You know, that interesting question, so corollary might be, How uniformed are you? When you change-um urinal cakes do you wear a brown shirt or a blue one? Do they still sew a little patch with your name on it on the breast pocket? How many cakes does it take to mask the urine smell in a Mens room as opposed to a Ladies room? Trick question. Tonto know you qualified to answer it, however.
