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

President of the Laborers’ International Union of North America Terry O’Sullivan emphatically stated if Obamacare cannot be fixed it needs to be repealed Wednesday at an AFL-CIO convention in Los Angeles.

O’Sullivan warned health insurance plans for organized labor are “under siege” and it will be a “big fricken deal if our members lose our health insurance.”

Despite White House opposition, the AFL-CIO passed the resolution calling Obamacare “highly disruptive” to union health plans.

As October 1 approaches, more and more employees lose their jobs because of ObamaKKKare.

The Indiana University is laying off 50 workers and sending them to a temp agency because of Obamacare.

Indiana University, which currently spends $215 million a year on health care, will shift 50 maintenance and custodial employees to an outside contractor that will hire them and will manage their hours. According to Indiana’s WRTV, the university is doing so to avoid paying for health insurance for the workers — Obamacare will require that all hourly employees who work 30 or more hours a week be provided with “affordable” health insurance.

Graduate students at IU have also fallen victim to Obamacare, as the university will be limiting the number of hours they can work to keep them under the 30-hour threshold as well.

You say that every week, except for ,of course, the week you lost the POTUS election AGAIN.
Who cares about that? Its MUCH more fun watching you phags think you are "so close" to the free-loading brass ring, and then see it snatched away at the last second. More fun on the way too, as odumbocare gets de-funded, and then the mid-terms. How do the results from leftist Colorado make you feel about your phag future? Hahahahahhaha!!!

HArd concept to explain sometimes-althoughhhhhhhhhhh.. .increasing minimum wage in certain instances (like to those over 18 or 21) to near living standards, WOULD probably help in REDUCING hunger and poverty, and deflect AWAY from givverment dependency.

At least a little ...for those with at least SOME correct priorities anyway.

I'm not disappointed. I WAS disappointed when it looked like Obama was contemplating a unilateral military action against Syria based on faulty intel. Now, I feel he is pursuing the right course of action by letting the international community take the lead.

FACT: The number of countries that have signed the statement blaming Assad for the chemical weapons attack, calling for a strong international response and supporting the United States now stands at 33, up from 25 on Monday.

LOL. Nothing could be further from the truth. Putin's team and public relations firm are trying to appeal to the American people because they have been unsuccessful in bullying Obama. Unfortunately for Putin, you can't put lipstick on a pig and, through the op-ed piece, Putin certainly looks like a pig.

We really don't know who used the WMDs (with complete certainty). Sounds like Assad, but there are doubts, so why risk more lifes of our kids? Are you saying US use WMDs? The Democrats claims Saddam didn't have them, but we know he used them against the Kurds. Confusing post. I'll catch up with you in the morning.

Dresses real nice, but looks kind of shady,
Like a tranny in the alley down deep in Haiti,
She tried to save face for her man barack,
A faithful member of that muslim flock,
But Vladimir is here, an it sure werent pretty,
beat barack so bad, even I began to pity,
A lesson learned, so remember well,
When the referee rings that squared circle bell,
If you come to fight, better bring your nutz,
Or you'll end up looking like a circus clown putz......:-)

Exactly-why should we risk ANY American lives (or any OTHER lives) based on one presupposed opinion.

IF an agreement is reached on Syria]s stockpile-they should be destroyed.

And any nation not in signed agreement rejecting the use of such, AND limiting nuclear capabilities (including TESTING means of)- SHOULD be subjected to constant scrutiny, and the clauses of breaching such thereof.

Ima been sleepn in the a.m.--you people are just exhausitng sometimes lol.

I hate it when you say something that makes perfect sense.:)

Pay employees minimum, and they're forced to turn to Gov't for Food Stamps, Medicare, etc. Even if they work two part time jobs or more.

Many of your nitwit friends do not understand the problem at all. It's not moochers, it's hard working Americans who are undervalued and taken advantage of in the marketplace. Something's gotta give. You can't have a large underpaid workforce and then go on to blame them for needing Government assistance to survive. It's economic serfdom.

Most of the regulars, esp. the Teabaggers are over 65, collecting Social Security and Medicare, perhaps a pension, they're from a different economic generation and have no idea how hard it is for so many Americans in this age.

With legions of low wage workers with no bargaining power, it's a social problem waiting to explode. Which it will, sooner or later.

We never cared what your fool Obama thinks. The part a libtard like you does not get is this is the first time another world leader mocks our president and controls him.
An idiot liberal like you has no clue what really just happened.
You people do have a short term memory.

WASHINGTON, May 31, 2006, New York Times — "After 27 years in which the United States has refused substantive talks with Iran, President Bush reversed course on Wednesday because it was made clear to him — by his allies, by the Russians, by the Chinese, and eventually by some of his advisers — that he no longer had a choice."

Not only did Putin mock and control Bush but so did the Chinese and some of his own advisors!!! Check mate!!!

Nothin' on the fair share, huh?

Hmmm...okay, how about this:

The vast majority of you democrats are pro-choice, correct?

If so do you feel people should be able to choose to have an assault weapon or what kind of light bulb they use in their house?
