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

The federal government has gotten too big to oversee abuses in the welfare programs or even manage veterans' benefits.

The SNAP program was designed to feed hungry children and the truly needy.

But all welfare programs were meant to be temporary - not a permanent lifestyle.

So money is being taken out of the paychecks of the lower middle class who are struggling to feed their own children without food stamps.

Only because the federal government has become so huge, it can't even see its toes.

Why is putting the federal government back in its place and giving the power back to the states such a bad idea to most liberals?

The recession was caused by the Democrats' Marxist CRA subprime housing loan program that collapsed the economy after two years of oversight by Democrats Dodd and Frank.
lol! It was caused by capitalism son.

That's because the CRA welfare mortgages were bundled into traunches and transferred to Special Purpose Vehicles in foreign countries, then sold back to the original mortgage underwriting company as a single unit, removing the individual worthless mortgages from their books and replacing them with a single traunch which cannot be investigated without the governments of the countries these Special Purpose Vehicles were created in forcing these Special Purpose Vehicles to open their books for investigation... something the government of the United States has not done.
If you want direct proof, why not ask Ben Bernanke why he specifically referenced "Special Purpose Vehicles" in his testimony to Barney Frank's committee, after which all questioning of him immediately ceased, and it was enough to shut every Democrat mouth in DC and guarantee 100 percent support from Democrats for him to resume as head of the Fed.
You really don't know anything about this, do you?

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?
LOL! Want to talk about massive fraud? You voted for that criminal Rick Scott who became a billionaire by committing the biggest fraud on Medicare; now he's back for more! The private prison companies put him in office, along with the dummies like you who vote about abortion.

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 0.74°F (0.39°C) since January 24, 2006.
http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/environment/art...
Whatever it is, it's quite concerning.
You look at global warming from too narrow of a view. Global warming is a shift of the temperatures seasonally &, coast to coast or, 1part of the hemisphere to the other. Not the earth is heating up as a whole. Global warming, climate change, same damn thing &, you choose to deny &, ignore it. Tunnel view only allows you to see what you want to see. Doesn't change the fact that it's happening right in front your face! When you just look & stop looking for specifics, the evidence is clear as day. Like I said, everything is intertwined. You're looking for signs of the human environment to guide your direction. This planet is much larger than the human environment. This planet coexists with other planets , in a galaxy, in a universe. All which has effects on this planet but, our #1 problem on this planet is us. Birds, fish, both migratory animals. They migrate using the north & south poles. There is much evidence of a pole swap but, why would the magnetic poles swap if there wasn't a problem. Why would the earth force itself into dramatic change of it were not necessary. There has been pole swaps in the past, all caused by human activity. Humans will be the cause for destruction &, the reason for healing & peace!

If you want to see how hypocritical and oversensitive to criticism we liberals can be, here's an example.
Get the rodeo clown!: Rodeo clown Tuffy Gessling put on an Obama mask at the Missouri State Fair and asked the enthusiastic people in the crowd if they'd like to see “Obama run down by a bull.”
Nothing racist was said, no threats were made, and of course, Obama wasn't in the ring.
It was a harmless bit of mockery of the President that had been done previously to George H. W. Bush with no outcry.
In this case, the Democratic governor and senator of the state condemned Gessling, he was banned for life from the Missouri State Fair, and the head of the Missouri NAACP called it a "hate crime" while asking for the Secret Service and NAACP to investigate.
Because far too many on the left have simply lost their minds.

It's either a symptom of being power hungry or it's tied in with the dead birds and fish somehow. Not sure but think it's more the former.

This isn't the same as hundreds of birds falling out of the sky at once in the Midwest and hundreds of dead fish washing ashore along the East Coast, both in 2011.
Honey bees are simply disappearing. I watched a document on it the other day. It's what got me thinking again about the dead birds and fish a few years ago.
Something's going on. Nature knows. Hope we figure it out soon.
It's a widely accepted belief that pesticides and humans interfering with the natural order of things in honey bee hives to produce more honey has caused the disappearance of honey bees worldwide.
Very sad when humans alter or interfere with nature out of sheer greed.

You're close, two-dogs-humping.
I actually cleaned bathrooms at gas stations and cleaned dumpster sites at apartment complexes to get money to live on when the oil field crashed in the early 80s.
When I was at a university, I waited banquets and cleaned a bar after it closed on Friday and Saturday nights to augment the small amount of money I got from the GI Bill.
As you can probably tell, I have no sympathy for the so-called "poor" in this country who just won't work.
So, is it my turn again?
Tonto not sure why redundancy called for in this case? You rest-room janitor, which is what Tonto been sayin' all along. Urinal cakes, scrub toilets, wipe up pee, we get it.

(Well, someone went and did it again...so here it is again...)

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

He should have been hammering out a compromise between Democrats and Republicans.

That's what leaders do.

Ann Dunham got knocked up by Frank Marshal Davis, who dumped her after he fucked her. She married a young communist from Kenya that her father met at the airport in Honolulu when he arrived in 1959. Frank Marshal Davis arranged for Ann Dunham to have her baby in Kenya, out of the country and not an inconvenience to him. Ann Dunham returned to the United States, having been abandoned by Obama's father, and, being a college dropout with a black child, she most likely worked as a prostitute, the dominant profession of women who appeared in pornographic magazines of that era.
