Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

ObamaKKKare has focused attention on the cost of medical care, so that even companies who have always covered their employees are searching for ways to cut back their coverage to the minimum required by the law.
Believe it or not, I can't wait until this time next year. The sinking reality will have set in by then. Then it's just another year before we finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Even Hillary won't be able to defend the mess her party created if it's bad as most expect and Democrats fear.

The point in the Oklahoma story is the difference in the Obama reaction, or lack thereof, all based on race.
he didn't shoot anybody because a black women talked him out of it.

Georgia school employee hailed as 'real hero' for talking gunman into giving up

A man slips behind someone else into a packed elementary school with AK-47 type weapon. He goes into the office and shoots at the ground, then darts between there and outside to fire at approaching police.

So what do you do?

If you're Antoinette Tuff, who works in the front office at Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy just outside Atlanta, you don't run. You talk. You divulge your personal struggles to the gunman, you tell him you love him, you even proactively offer to walk outside with him to surrender so police won't shoot.

And then the nightmare ends -- with the suspect, later identified as Michael Brandon Hill, taken into custody and no one inside or outside the Decatur school even hurt, despite the gunfire.

http://www.cnn.com/2013/08/21/us/georgia-scho...

A day later, community members and leaders are offering praise for Tuff and police, as well as gratitude that the story did not turn tragic.

"Was the potential there to have another Sandy Hook?" admits Alexander, the police chief. "Absolutely."

well sure there was chance of it being another Sandy Hook. the guy was white wasn't he?

Christopher Lane Killing Becomes Race Issue For Conservative Pundits

A similar message was put forward by Fox News, with more embarrassing results. On Wednesday morning, "Fox & Friends" falsely reported that all three of the suspects were black, during a segment in which host Steve Doocy, like Limbaugh, brought up Trayvon Martin.

The Daily Caller made the same factual error, and compounded it by showing what it claimed to be photos of each of the suspects. The person identified by the website as Michael Jones, who is white, was a black man entirely uninvolved to the shooting.

Since you didn't have an answer to the SNAP waste, fraud, and abuse question I found this for you:
http://www.usda.gov/oig/webdocs/27002-0011-13...
Its ironic that in this post you're questioning whether States could do a better job when the report points to States' failure to properly identify and treat waste, fraud, and abuse.
The massive increase of people on food stamps in the past five years has created many more problems.

The 10 states that were reviewed in this report were still reported to have a "low rate of anomalies" and "a notable achievement in the states making significant progress".

If abuse and fraud can be found in 10 states "given the size and complexity of SNAP", how much more could be found nationwide?

It also pointed out that "SNAP participation has reached record levels".

That's the problem, isn't it?

It's only logical that states can keep abuse and fraud down much more efficiently. Let them determine the requirements based on the needs of the citizens in their own state and enforce them.

This article is quite revealing.

http://reason.com/archives/2012/10/03/its-eas...

There are no jobs!" That is what people told me outside a government "jobs center" in New York City.

To check this out, I sent four researchers around the area. They quickly found 40 job openings. Twenty-four were entry-level positions. One restaurant owner told me he would hire 12 people if workers would just apply.

It made me wonder what my government does in buildings called "job centers." So I asked a college intern, Zoelle Mallenbaum, to find out. Here's what she found:

"First I went to the Manhattan Jobs Center and asked, "Can I get help finding a job?" They told me they don't do that.'We sign people up for food stamps.' I tried another jobs center. They told me to enroll for unemployment benefits."

So the "jobs" centers help people get handouts. Neither center suggested people try the 40 job openings in the neighborhood.

...There's more to the article but this is definitely the problem. The private market for jobs works better than government "job centers".

Why would anybody work 40 hours per week for an extra $300 per month in a society that glorifies freeloaders?
Part-time jobs increased significantly over the past six months. Full-time jobs paled in comparison.

Does this president have to try to be so disconnected or does it just come naturally?

Many industries, including those that produce "widgets", have become highly automated so that labor costs are not that significant.
However, environmental regulations have essentially made some industries impossible in the US, and the cost of power is another major factor. It's not all just cheap wages.
If the EPA was effective I'd be able to eat fish out of the local rivers and streams.

That only suggests they've cut "waste, fraud, and abuse" in half instead of four-fold as the percentage would suggest.

So, they effectively cut "waste, fraud, and abuse" in half and we still have serious spending issues and a huge deficit, what's your next magic cure?

Just go to the White House any day and take a look at who's visiting and you can tie Obama directly to the Muslim Brotherhood.
