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

You fricken Bush supporters backed a real war based on the idea that Iraq might have WMDs.
And cower under the bed when a nation not only was known to have a mega stock of WMDs but actually used them on his own people.

PLA dispatches vessels to “observe” US maneuvers.

China has now joined Russia in sending warships to Syria to monitor the actions of US ships sent there by Barack Obama to commit terrorist attacks againt Syria.

As the build up to WW3 rapidly escalates, will Nobel Peace Prize winner Obama do the unthinkable and launch ‘love bombs‘ towards the Syrian people based upon a ‘false flag‘ or will he back down and wait for a full investigation from the UN inspectors to be completed?

China has also accused the US of lying in Syria and has stated that the US is ignoring international law as shared in the new video below from Sherrie Questioning All. The story from Infowars is below video.

Part-time epidemic
According to NBC 2/3 of all new jobs are part time.
As much as you people like to blame everything on "Obamacare", it's not true.

Full time jobs, being replaced with part time jobs started before long before Obama was even elected. It has nothing to do with the Affordable Care Act.

The following are excerpts from a July, 2008 article written as unemployment was on the rise:(Reminder: Bush was President)

"The number of Americans who have seen their full-time jobs chopped to part time because of weak business has swelled to more than 3.7 million — the largest figure since the government began tracking such data more than half a century ago.

The loss of pay has become a primary source of pain for millions of American families, reinforcing the downturn gripping the economy. Paychecks are shrinking just as home prices plunge and gas prices soar, furthering the austerity across the nation...."

"All told, people the government classifies as working part time involuntarily — predominantly those who have lost hours or cannot find full-time work — swelled to 5.3 million last month, a jump of greater than 1 million over the last year.

"Many experts see the swift cutback in hours as a precursor of a more painful chapter to come: broader layoffs. Some struggling companies are holding on to workers and cutting shifts while hoping to ride out hard times. If business does not improve, more extreme measures could follow."

"In decades past, when business soured, companies tended to resort to mass layoffs, hiring people back when better times returned. But as high technology came to permeate American business, companies have grown reluctant to shed workers. Even the lowest-wage positions in retail, fast food, banking or manufacturing require computer skills and a grasp of a company’s systems. Several months of training may be needed to get a new employee up to speed.

“Companies today would rather not go through the process of dumping someone and hiring them back,” said Dean Baker, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research in Washington.“Firms are going to short shifts rather than just laying people off.”

"More part-time and fewer full-time workers also allows companies to save on health care costs. Only 16 percent of retail workers receive health insurance through their employer, while more than half of full-time workers are covered, according to an analysis by Ms. Lambert, the University of Chicago employment expert."

FACT: Obama has turned the tide of the layoffs that were a consequence of the Bush administration's failed policies. Wake up and smell the coffee.

Good grief this turn to 2/3 of new jobs being part time is so unremarkable that NBC and other publications decided it is concerning.

I think you were confused when you posted your original comment. During war times there are no parties. All there is are Hawks and Doves.

McCain is acting like a Hawk, if he is confused-as you stated-about going to war than so are you and Obama.

Wrong.

Medicare is not free, requiring an income-related monthly premium for each person, a premium that increases every year.

Supplementals are not complete coverage, with deductibles and copays required.

The average cost of medical insurance for a couple on Medicare is $500-600 per month.

Lastly, IBM can drop their payment whenever they desire.

There is a big difference between companies reducing hours temporarily in a business turndown to avoid layoffs and businesses reducing hours permanently to avoid government regulation.
