Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Obamacare was a smokescreen as a first step to a single payer system. Reid admitted it outright on a PBS interview recently.

Dictators historically convince the easily fooled that government is only looking out for their best interests by offering free medical care.

Once they control your medical care, they control you.

Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Some of you really need to think about that.

Bye for now.

Besides we were discussing Reagan's defeat of the middle class.
What collapsed the Soviet Union was the pressure put on their communist economy to match the influence of the United States in the world, and match the military progress.
It's a no-brainer communism is a bad system. That brings us to the question of why do you adore the communist we somehow put in as president?
I recall stagflation knocking the shit out of the middle class during Carter's tenure. I recall by the end of Reagan's terms, everything had been put in place for the economic boom of the 90s to happen.
What are you talking about?
... what planet do you live on? Perhaps that's the difference between our observations. I was describing Earth.

I'll post this again just for you.

One of the most interesting conclusions to come out of the seventh International Climate Change Conference sponsored by the Heartland Institute held in Chicago last year was that natural climate cycles have already turned from warming to cooling, global temperatures have already been declining for more than 10 years, and global temperatures will continue to decline for another two decades or more.

The Heartland Institute has effectively become the international headquarters of the climate realists, an analog to the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

In 1990, Maddox was indefinitely suspended by the Appellate Division of the State Supreme Court in Brooklyn after failing to appear before a disciplinary hearing to answer allegations regarding his conduct in the Brawley case.[10]

In 1996, Maddox was ordered to pay New York State $1,000 in legal costs for filing a false complaint of racial bias. He had alleged that he had had to apply to represent an indigent defendant in a murder case, while two lawyers who were white had been appointed to represent the other defendant in the case without having to apply. The state showed evidence that in fact, the two lawyers had applied and Maddox had filed a discrimination suit instead of going through the applications process. Michael Mukasey, at that time a Federal judge, ordered Maddox to pay New York State the legal costs it had incurred defending against the suit.[11] The following year, in 1997, Maddox and his group, the United African Movement, were fined $10,000 by New York City's Commission on Human Rights after they denied a white teacher access to a speech by Cornel West on the basis of her race.[12]

Sun's Magnetic Field About to Flip Causing "Ripple Effect"
"As the sun's magnetic field begins to flip, the current sheet becomes wavy. Earth will dip in and out of the current sheet, as it orbits the sun. Researchers say the sun's magnetic field flipping could affect anything from the Earth's cloudiness or climate in and around the planet."
http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-205_162-57597396/...
This happens approximately every 11 years.
Changes in the sun causes climate change patterns.
What a novel concept.
Sure Carol, but since it hasn't happened yet how do you explain the steady increases in average global temperatures? Let me once again, and I'm sure not for the last time lay this quote on you from Richard A. Muller, professor of physics at the University of California, Berkely, a MacArthur fellow and co-founder of the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature project which by the way was ironically funded by the Koch Foundation;
“Three years ago I identified problems in previous climate studies that, in my mind, threw doubt on the very existence of global warming. Last year, following an intensive research effort involving a dozen scientists, I concluded that global warming was real and that the prior estimates of the rate of warming were correct. I’m now going a step further: Humans are almost entirely the cause.”
But go ahead keep living in that delusional little bubble.

That reminds me of something I wanted to look up earlier.
Senior Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett’s late father-in-law and Chicago Sun-Times columnist Vernon Jarrett was a key member of the South Chicago communist left of the late 1940s.
Vernon Jarrett moved to Chicago in 1946 to work as a journalist and was heavily influenced by the Communist Party USA. He was included on the with well-known Chicago Communist Party member, Frank Marshall Davis.
(The plot thickens...)
Frank Marshall Davis eventually left Chicago for Hawaii to work on the Honolulu Record run by Communist Party member Koji Ariyoshi.
So is it just a coincidence that Valerie Jarrett and Frank Marshall Davis - who both had communist backgrounds and connections - were so connected to Barack Hussein Obama? And that Frank Marshall Davis was such a prominent figure in Obama's young life and also happened to live in Hawaii before he was born?
Don't that kind of coincidence just happens.
Remind us all when and for how long Valerie was married to Jarret's mopey son.

The economy is 15 trillion dollars.
The government is almost 25 percent of the economy.
Therefore, the part of the economy that actually pays for everything is only about 12 trillion dollars.

The total debt is 17 trillion dollars, one and a half times the size of the part of the economy that pays for everything.
The annual deficit has leveled off at 1.3 trillion dollars.
Every year the debt increases at 8 percent.
The real economy is stagnant.
There is no plan in existence to stop the debt from growing at 8 percent every year.
There is no plan in existence to grow the economy.

It's just a matter of time until there won't be any country in the world so stupid they continue giving us money.

Given the above facts, how long do you estimate it will be before our government collapses?

What is the Democrat plan for what to do after the government collapses? Martial law? Create a dictatorship?

In 1990, Joseph Mack formed the United African Party. To say the least, its formation caused a political stir. The Democratic Party was wedded to a one-party system with Blacks serving as “political pawns”. Leading Blacks and Black selected officials would endorse and sanction “plantation politics”. Blacks go to the polls like they had gone to cotton fields.
The sine qua non of “plantation politics” is the absence of bargaining rights in addition to the absence of political leverage. Blacks are always on the sidelines, politically, while whites ride on our backs on the field to achieve their goals. The latest example is “gay rights”. In the meantime, the Democratic Party favors “stop and frisk”. This includes mayoral candidate, William Thompson.

SHARPTON lolololhahahaahOne and Done?©

After a virtually all-white, all female jury in Seminole County, FL acquitted George Zimmerman of murder and manslaughter charges in the death of Trayvon Martin, Rev. Al Sharpton vowed that he would spur and stage marches around more than one hundred federal courthouses. So far, no one has accused him of breaching his promise.

Of course, his promise was not a demand. Since the venues were courthouses, he sought to infer that the U.S. Justice Department should commence a civil rights prosecution against Zimmerman. His promise of interim action fell far short of making a demand, however. A demand ends with “or else”.

After the past week-end of marches, he scheduled a “three-day retreat” in Florida, the scene of the crime. At the end of the retreat, he would announce a game plan. On this past Thursday, he made no new announcement. The acquittal of George Zimmerman was not an intervening circumstance. The already planned “March on Washington” on August 24, 2013 was still intact.

This is Sharpton’s modus operandi. He starts or highlights racial fires for the media and he waters them down before any white person suffers an injury. In the meantime, he fans the flames in order for a media outlet to enjoy top ratings. This is converted into advertising dollars. He heads the Madison Avenue Initiative and for a good reason.

If you are awaiting further instructions on securing justice for Trayvon Martin, you may locate Sharpton at a five-star hotel and “living large”. His living quarters are a far cry from those of Dr. Martin L. King, Jr. who was assassinated at the Lorraine Hotel in Memphis, TN. According to Sharpton’s materialistic standard, this was a “flea bag” hotel.

Sharpton loves his white enemies and he despises any Black person who will stand his or her ground in the face of white supremacists selling “wolf” tickets. This is why he admires Rev. Jesse L. Jackson and he has problems with the mild-mannered Booker T. Washington who left Blacks with Tuskegee Institute as an example of his legacy.

On January 12, 1991, a white supremacist stabbed Sharpton in his chest and near his heart in Bensonhurst. United African Movement was demanding the prosecution of all the mob members responsible for the death of Yusef Hawkins. Joseph Fama had already received a sentence of thirty-three years to life by a jury in Brooklyn Supreme Court. UAM was responsible for this relatively stiff sentence.

Sharpton’s assailant was prosecuted and convicted of stabbing him. At the assailant’s sentencing, Sharpton made a surprise appearance but instead of delivering an impact statement,“he got on his knees” and begged for mercy for the white assailant. Sharpton was also opposed to harming Zimmerman under the white man’s version of natural law.
