No, the "1%" don't want that kind of labor.

Yes, and look who is their number one water carrier? I guess she's part of the 1%.
It has become like a police state here in Florida; we have undercover cops in plain cars cruising around watching everyone, pulling cars over for random bullshyt; they're the frontline salesmen fueling the criminal justice system by providing an endless supply of people to the private prison companies who put our governor in office. Creating more and more felons, so that they can never get a job, or an apartment, or a loan, or go to college; what do they expect these people to do?

Yes I agree. With the Fed getting ready to start pulling back the QE3 interest rates are bound to go up. If they go up too much to fast we will not be able to pay the interest on the debt or the other bills even if they raise the debt ceiling.

Folks, Obama never said he wanted to close the base, he wanted to close the detention camp.
Also he was denied funding the closure of the camp by Congress, they would not fund this.
Also contrary to rightwing belief Obama is not a dictator so he cannot just close the camp on his own.
I gave him a pass as I was on vacation.
The problem with closing the detention camp is Obama's refusal to proceed with military trials for the inmates.

In 1957, Romania legalized abortion, but in 1966, after a decline in the national birthrate, Nicolae Ceau&#351;escu approved Decree 770, which criminalized abortion and encouraged childbirth. As a result of this decree, women were forced to seek out illegal methods of abortion that caused the deaths of over 9,000 women and left countless unwanted children abandoned in orphanages. Abortion remained illegal until 1989, when the decree was overturned

Japan is known today worldwide for its acceptance of abortion.[84][88] It is estimated that two-thirds of Japanese women have an abortion by age forty, partially due to former government restrictions on contraceptive pills on 'public hygiene grounds'.[84]

The Eugenics Protection Law of 1948 made abortion on demand legal up to twenty-two weeks' gestation so long as the woman's health was endangered; in 1949, this law was extended to consider the risk the child's birth would place on a woman's economic welfare.[84][88] Originally, each case would have to be approved by a local eugenics council, but this law was removed from the law in 1952, making the decision a private one between a woman and her physician.[84][88]

In 1964, the creation of the conservative right-wing nationalist political lobbying group called Seicho-no-Ie brought about a strong opposition to the abortion laws.[84] This campaign reached its peak strength in the early 1980s, but ultimately failed in 1983

India enforced the Indian Penal Code from 1860 to 1971, criminalizing abortion and punishing both the practitioners and the women who sought out the procedure.[86] As a result, countless women died in an attempt to obtain illegal abortions from unqualified midwives and "doctors."[86] Abortion was made legal under specific circumstances in 1971, but as scholar S. Chandrasekhar notes, lower class women still find themselves at a greater risk of injury or death as a result of a botched abortion

I could go on, but, the point is this: women have the right over their own bodies and the right to safe abortion procedures. If it is outlawed, you will force them underground and they will die.

his might not be as big of a deal if the United States ever paid down its debt, but I can only find six years since 1929 where this actually occurred Ė 1930, 1947, 1948, 1951, 1956, and 1957. There is no chance of fiscal recovery with a president who, in the face of financial disaster, dares to submit a budget containing multi-trillion dollar per year deficits into the future. Until the right leadership is in place, you, I, our children and our grandchildren can look forward to living in a nation which basically owns us. Is this the same Republic that we inherited from our forefathers? I think, not.
Barack Obama has taken this nation in precisely the wrong direction; he has taken us beyond the point of no return. Yet there is still hope, but such hope, of necessity, lies beyond the realm of partisan politicians. Faith without works is dead. This isnít World War II. Itís time to dramatically reduce the federal governmentís footprint. Itís time to cut government spending. Itís time to lower (not raise) the debt ceiling. Tomorrow will be too late.
Oh please.

We were on the path to pay down our debt & what did you right whiners do? Vote for a man who ran on "giving it back".

The fact is you are too selfish & too greedy to want o support this country & vote based on who will cost your wallet the less today.

George Freakin Bush took us from that path to balanced budget to the worst recession in 80 years and you have the audacity to blame Obama?

Those trillion dollar deficits were the direct effect of the reduction of revenues & increase in needed government services. Not some outlandish spending.

I guess you would have slashed spending in 009? Really??? You would have plunged us into a depression.

But hey, UNFUNDED tax cuts, UNFUNDED expansion to Medicare, UNFUNDED record earmarks, UNFUNDED wars. Nope had nothing to do with anything.

It's all that Obama's fault.
