Barack Obama, our next President

Pretty funny but sad. UCLA students say Obama deserves Peace Prize, but can't say why:

Students at the University of California (USC) said that President Obama definitely still deserves his Nobel Peace Prize — but had a hard time explaining why.

“I just feel like in general being a good guy, it’s just creating a lot more peace and like, mellow,” said one student, adding,“I love Obama, and I love everything he is doing. I just feel like everyone is so hard on him and it’s only his second year.”

When asked what the difference was between President Obama and President Bush invading the Middle East, that studentÂ’s answer was simple:

“Bush, I just didn’t like him,” she said.“I just don’t.”

Other students explained that some of his initiatives — such as his economic policies and Obamacare — made Americans happy and so led to world peace.

One student said he thought Obama had strengthened diplomatic ties “with countries” but could not explain what he meant.

“Just good-natured intentions,” he said.

Typical Liberal!!!

But it is all ok, God is good. Why?

Because every single person I know that voted for the incompetent teleprompter angry black man, lost his or her job, is declaring bankruptcy or is worst off now than under Bush!!!

Sadly many do not see or want to see the connection!

I have this friend of mine, she lost her job after Obama won, now she is loosing her house and filing for bankruptcy!!

Why?

She works for the American Heart Association and people are not giving any money to it!!

But she can not see the connection!!!

No wonder Liberals do not want to remove free NPR and MSNBC from cable TV, they need to keep fooling the Liberals!

Remember, ONLY Liberals are fooled by Obama!

CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Clinic has told workers they will be laying off an unspecified number of employees as part of an overall, sweeping cost-reduction plan.

Clinic CEO Dr. Toby Cosgrove discussed the looming cuts and changes in a Wednesday morning all-employee meeting.

Clinic spokeswoman Eileen Sheil denied circulating rumors that employees were told there would be 3,000 jobs cut.

She said any layoffs will be part of a multi-year plan to cut $330 million from the Clinic's budget.
Obamacare mandate stipulates that if a business blame their lay off on Obamacare they will be fined $100 for every employee they fired!!!

No wonder they are afraid to tell the truth about Obamacare!!!

Vanderbilt University Medical Center is eliminating several hundred more jobs this week as part of its plan to cut up to 1,000 positions by the end of the year.

The cuts are expected to continue for several more weeks, and should be complete by late October.

According to a letter sent to state and city officials, Vanderbilt said the workers receiving notice would be “permanently laid off starting on November 16, 2013 and continuing until or on about December 31, 2013.” All affected employees will be given 60 days’ notice, the letter said.

“What’s happened here at Vanderbilt is today we’ve started this action, and several hundred people will be leaving the organization,” said John Howser, spokesman for VUMC.

This latest round of layoffs is part of the medical center’s plan to cut $250 million from its $3.3 billion operating budget over the next two fiscal years. Jeffrey Balser, head of the Vanderbilt University Medical Center, has told staff that the restructuring is part of a plan called “Evolve to Excel.”
Obamacare mandate that if a business blames their layoff on Obamacare it will be considered "politicking" and will either lose their tax exemption (if a church for example) or a fine of $100 for each employee they fired!!!

We needed to pass it to know what's in it!!

REAGAN WAS A CRIMINAL . ALL POLITICAL PARTIES ARE CROOKED AND CONTROLLED BY A VERY POWERFUL JEWISH MAFIA . WE SHOULD BOMB ISRAEL .

The Bush family and the S&L Scandal

Neil, George Jr., George Sr., and Jeb Bush

The Savings and Loan industry had been experiencing major problems through the late 60s and 70s due to rising inflation and rising interest rates. Because of this there was a move in the 1970s to replace the role of S&L institutions with banks.

In the early 1980s, under Reagan, regulatory changes took place that gave the S&L industry new powers and for the first time in history measures were taken to increase the profitability of S&Ls at the expense of promoting home ownership.

A history of the S&L situation can be found here:

http://www.fdic.gov/bank/historical/s&l/

What is important to note about the S&L scandal is that it was the largest theft in the history of the world and US tax payers are who was robbed.

The problems occurred in the Savings and Loan industry as they relate to theft because the industry was deregulated under the Reagan/Bush administration and restrictions were eased on the industry so much that abuse and misuse of funds became easy, rampant, and went unchecked.

Additional facts on the Savings and Loan Scandal can be found here:

http://www.inthe80s.com/sandl.shtml

There are several ways in which the Bush family plays into the Savings and Loan scandal, which involves not only many members of the Bush family but also many other politicians that are still in office and still part of the Bush Jr. administration today. Jeb Bush, George Bush Sr., and his son Neil Bush have all been implicated in the Savings and Loan Scandal, which cost American tax payers over $1.4 TRILLION dollars (note that this is about one quarter of our national debt).

Between 1981 and 1989, when George Bush finally announced that there was a Savings and Loan Crisis to the world, the Reagan/Bush administration worked to cover up Savings and Loan problems by reducing the number and depth of examinations required of S&Ls as well as attacking political opponents who were sounding early alarms about the S&L industry. Industry insiders were aware of significant S&L problems as early 1986 that they felt would require a bailout. This information was kept from the media until after Bush had won the 1988 elections.

Jeb Bush defaulted on a $4.56 million loan from Broward Federal Savings in Sunrise, Florida. After federal regulators closed the S&L, the office building that Jeb used the $4.56 million to finance was reappraised by the regulators at $500,000, which Bush and his partners paid. The taxpayers had to pay back the remaining 4 million plus dollars.

Neil Bush was the most widely targeted member of the Bush family by the press in the S&L scandal. Neil became director of Silverado Savings and Loan at the age of 30 in 1985. Three years later the institution was belly up at a cost of $1.6 billion to tax payers to bail out.

Nothing ever changes with this insatiable power hungry party. Lie...cheat...steal...whatever .
("Lie" being the key word.)
What planet are you on Carol? What party has been trying to suppress votes? What party's operative in Virginia was arrested for dumping voter registration forms in a dumpster? What party took a blood oath to block any proposals by the President even if it meant crashing the economy in the process?
Lie Carol? The Romney/Ryan ticket set a record for sheer mendacity . Does the lie about Jeep production being shipped to China ring a bell? How about the fabrication that Obama "gutted" the work requirement for welfare or that Obamacare gets between doctors and their patients? There's also the lie that Romney said in October of 2008 where he stated that the President hadn't signed a single trade agreement in his four years when in fact he signed three with Panama, Columbia and South Korea.
Here's another one;
"The number one to cut is Obamacare. That saves $95 billion a year."
- Mitt Romney
False. When Republicans introduced H.R. 2, the Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act, the Congressional Budget Office sent House Speaker John Boehner a letter detailing what would happen if the law was passed. As it turns out, the CBO estimates that repealing the Affordable Care Act would "increase federal budget deficits over the 2012-2019 period by a total of roughly $145 billion." In short, the Affordable Care Act will save us money in the long run.
And How about this?
"Three years ago, a newly elected President Obama told America that if Congress approved his plan to borrow nearly a trillion dollars, he would hold unemployment below eight percent."
- Mitt Romney
False. Simply put: No such promise was ever made, either by President Obama or any member of his administration. The only comparable statement was made in 2009, in a report by then-chairwoman of the Council of Economic Advisors Christina Romer. The report made various projections relating to the stimulus plan, one of which stated that unemployment would peak under eight percent in 2009. The operative word, of course, being "projection" -- not a promise by any means. Regardless, President Obama didn't even say it.
You're an idiot Carol.

The Facts About Tax Cuts, Revenue, and Growth
Michael T. Griffith
2013
@All Rights Reserved
Fourth Edition
In every case over the last 60 years, major tax cuts have more than paid for themselves. In fact, every major tax cut since JFK has been followed by substantial increases in revenue, not to mention solid economic growth. Moreover, total federal revenue rose at a faster rate after each of those tax cuts than it did before them. Anyone can confirm these basic facts for themselves by checking federal budget data and economic indicators before and after major tax cuts (see, for example, Federal Budget Data, Data 360 Unemployment U.S., and Total Economy Database). Let’s take a closer look at the results of the last four major tax cuts (and then for good measure we’ll examine the Mellon tax cuts of the 1920s).
Bush Tax Cuts: President George W. Bush’s 2003 tax cuts generated a massive increase in federal tax revenue and were followed by 52 consecutive months of economic growth. From 2004 to 2007, federal tax revenue increased by $780 billion, the largest four-year increase in American history. Total federal revenue from 2003 to 2007:
2003 --$1.78 trillion
2004 --$1.88 trillion
2005 --$2.15 trillion
2006 --$2.40 trillion
2007 --$2.56 trillion
Total federal revenue for 2008 dropped slightly, down to $2.52 trillion, because a recession started that year, but revenue was still substantially higher than it was in 2003 or 2004. During the same period, income tax revenue rose dramatically, going from $925 billion in 2003 to $1.53 trillion in 2007.
You never fail to amuse fkstk.

NORFOLK

Norfolk Southern Corp. held a 50th anniversary celebration Wednesday for its Pier 6 at Lamberts Point, and the pier set a coal-loading record just in time for the event.

The Norfolk-based railroad said that a Hong Kong-flagged ship, the M/V China Pioneer, loaded 166,840 net tons of coal during a visit that ended Tuesday. That broke the previous single-ship record for Pier 6 of 159,941.45 net tons, set on Jan. 12, as well as the previous record for the port of Hampton Roads, 163,765 net tons, set at Dominion Terminal Associates in Newport News on Feb. 9, 1992.

The 984-foot China Pioneer took on 1,561 railcar loads of metallurgical coal that will be delivered to Liuzhou Iron & Steel in China.

"The fact that this new record comes at Pier 6's 50th birthday is a big exclamation point," Mark Bower, a Norfolk Southern group vice president who oversees coal marketing, said in a prepared statement. "It again demonstrates that NS and our production and sales partners are the experienced, safe, and reliable team for getting American coal to the world's utilities and coke plants."

Norfolk Southern began loading coal and coke from railroad cars into ships calling at Lamberts Point in 1884.

There had been five piers before it when Pier 6, the biggest and fastest of them all, opened for business in December 1962. The pier became fully operational in July 1963. Norfolk & Western Railway, which later merged with Southern Railway to form Norfolk Southern, officially dedicated the facility on Sept. 18, 1963.

Norfolk Southern said the pier is the only terminal in the world to have loaded more than 1 billion tons of coal, a milestone it reached in 1999.

Most of the coal loaded at Pier 6 is mined in Southwest Virginia, southern West Virginia, eastern Kentucky and Pennsylvania.
