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 ...

It's not just dirty politics when it comes to your power hungry party. It's called corrupt politics.
How about when you trash the military career of a US Congressman who lost multiple limbs in Vietnam to win his seat in Congress.

See Karl Rocv & George W Bush.

NON RACISTS SHOOTING Two Navy yard employees interviewed on CNN said they were fired on in a hallway by a gunman they described as a tall black man.

A woman who gave her name as Terry Durham said that as she and co-workers were evacuating, she saw a man down the hall raise a rifle and fire toward them, hitting a wall.“He was tall. He appeared to be dark-skinned,” she said.

“He was a tall black guy,” said her co-worker, Todd Brundage, who is black.“He didn’t say a word.”

One man who said he was at his desk on the second floor when the shooting began recalled hearing a loud noise “like someone dropping an old metal desk.” The man, who declined to give his name, said there was a pause, then several noises close together and he realized the danger:“There’s a shooter in the building. I started walking toward the door and I heard people running down the hall.”

Employees described the chaos, as a fire alarm sounded and people shouted,“Where is he? Where is he?”

Police closed the 11th St Bridge as well as M St SE between 2nd and 4th streets SE due to the shooting. Entrances to the Navy Yard Metro station remain open.

U.S. Capitol Police confirmed enhanced security at the Capitol, but no immediate threat.

American Indian wrote:
American Indian and Alaska Native Poverty Rate About 50 Percent in Rapid City, S.D., and About 30 Percent in Five Other Cities, Census Bureau Reports
The poverty rate for American Indians and Alaska Natives in Rapid City, S.D.(50.9 percent) was around three times the rate in Anchorage, Alaska (16.6 percent) and about 30 percent or greater in five other cities most populated by this group (Gallup, N.M.; Minneapolis; Rapid City, S.D.; Shiprock, N.M.; Tucson, Ariz.; and Zuni Pueblo, N.M.), according to American Community Survey data collected from 2007 to 2011 by the U.S. Census Bureau. See figure.
chart
Nine states had poverty rates of about 30 percent or more for American Indians and Alaska Natives (Arizona, Maine, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota and Utah).
"With the American Community Survey, we can look at the poverty rates for even the smallest race and Hispanic-origin groups," said Suzanne Macartney, an analyst in the Census Bureau's Poverty Statistics Branch.
These figures come from Poverty Rates for Selected Detailed Race and Hispanic Groups by State and Place: 2007-2011, an American Community Survey brief that presents poverty rates by race and Hispanic origin for the United States, each state and the District of Columbia. For the nation and each state, poverty rates are summarized for the major race groups. For the nation, each state and selected places, poverty rates are summarized for American Indians and Alaska Natives, detailed Asian groups with populations of 750,000 or more, Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander groups with populations of 25,000 or more and Hispanic-origin groups with populations of 1 million or more.
Two race groups had poverty rates more than 10 percentage points higher than the national rate of 14.3 percent: American Indian and Alaska Native (27.0 percent) and black or African- American (25.8 percent). Rates were above the overall national average for Native Hawaiians and Other Pacific Islanders (17.6 percent), while poverty rates for people identified as white (11.6 percent) or Asian (11.7 percent) were lower than the overall poverty rate. Poverty rates for whites and Asians were not statistically different from each other. The Hispanic population had a poverty rate of 23.2 percent, about nine percentage points higher than the overall U.S. rate.
Other highlights:
According to the 2007-2011 American Community Survey, 42.7 million people in the United States, or 14.3 percent, had income below the poverty level.
For the Asian population, poverty rates were higher for Vietnamese (14.7 percent) and Koreans (15.0 percent) and lower for Filipinos (5.8 percent). Poverty rates for Vietnamese and Koreans were not statistically different from each other.
For Asians, nine states had poverty rates below 10 percent (Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Maryland, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Virginia and South Carolina).
Among Hispanics, national poverty rates ranged from a low of 16.2 percent for Cubans to a high of 26.3 percent ... blah... blah... blah."
We have significant operations in Alaska. We have not hired any indigenous people for any technical positions.
Why?
Because they always fail the drug screen.
Don't tell me about poverty when they obviously have enough money to not only buy drugs, but eat enough to get obese.
There is an old documentary made in the 1920s. "Nanook of the North". It is a video documentary of an Inuit family. They aren't fat.
So, how is it bad for them when, before they lived in what you ludicrously call "poverty", they had a very healthy appearance, and now that they live in "poverty", they eat too much and can't get a job because they spend money you say they don't have on drugs?

The Largest Share Of Income Ever Recorded Went To The One Percent In 2012 The wealthiest Americans have almost fully recovered from the economic meltdown, taking home 50 percent of all income in 2012, according to a report from economists Emmanuel Saez and Thomas Piketty.

The top one percent of wage earners took home 95 percent of income gains in the first three years of economic recovery.

According to the same report, the “top one percent incomes are close to full recovery while bottom 99 percent incomes have hardly started to recover."

The one percent in the U.S. grew by 31.4 percent while the bottom 99 percent grew by only 0.4 percent from 2009 to 2012.

The trend of income inequality that began in the 1970s, the study authors wrote, was only disrupted by the Great Recession and it now continues.

The one percent took home 19.3 percent of the total household income in 2012 – the biggest percentage of total income since 1927, when the group took 18.7 percent

In a separate research study, Saez, a leading researcher of wealth and income inequality at the University of California, Berkeley, found that the top one percent took home 86 percent of the income growth from 1993 to 2000. During that time, the 99 percent saw only a 6.6 percent increase in earnings.

Income inequality in the U.S. is worse than in Egypt, Tunisia, the Ivory Coast, Pakistan, Ethiopia and Yemen, according to Raw Story. The top ten percent of wage earners in the U.S. have 15.9 times the income of the bottom 90 percent.

A plot that involved more airplanes targeting LAX as one of its targets was originating in the UK but was prevented with the combined efforts of the CIA and Scotland Yard with 19 jihadists arrested in one night.
You should find the documentary about this and watch it. It was as intense as a movie but reality.
That was when the Patriot Act listened only to international chatter. It's how this plot was disbanded.
Obama thinks the Tea Party is the enemy.
uh, 9/11?

oh yeah, that's Clinton's fault.

now if only more than 2.5 million FOXbots would buy in.....

but the LAX thing seems interesting. is that the one where Cheney said torture got us the info even though the info came a year after the plot was discovered?

Here's an example of other "ugly Americans" like you:
The crowning of Miss New York, Nina Davuluri, as Miss America should have been, to paraphrase her platform, a celebration of diversity through cultural competency. But in the hours after her victory, Twitter became a frank demonstration of American incompetence in matters relating to both ethnicity and geography.
“Well they just picked a Muslim for Miss America. That must’ve made Obama happy. Maybe he had a vote,” said one user.
“I am literally soo mad right now a ARAB won.#MissAmerica” wrote another
It should go without saying that Davuluri, a Syracuse native of Indian descent, is neither Muslim nor an Arab. But according to Fox News Radio host Todd Starnes, the American-born Davuluri doesn’t “represent American values,” unlike the blonde-haired, blue-eyed contestant from Kansas, Theresa Vail.
This is not to say that Vail isn’t an unprecedented contestant in her own right: she’s spent five years in the Kansas Army National Guard and is double-majoring in chemistry and Chinese at Kansas State University. But, according to Starnes on Facebook, she lost because “the liberal Miss America judges were not interested in a gun-toting, deer-hunting, military veteran.”
http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/09/16/fox-new...
The traditional first trip for Miss America, and a handful of the other contestants, usually the ten finalists, was to Brunei where they formed a harem for the Sultan.
Will the new Miss American be going to service the Sultan of Brunei on her first "public relations" trip?

So, what you're saying is, the current trend in what you label as "income inequality" beginning in the 70s is roughly coincident with the so-called "progressives" beginning a 40-year decline of our education system without a single year of improvement, right?
Why don't you complete your essay with a description of how income is more evenly distributed in countries with higher education levels.

And, it seems the trend you referenced only got worse since Obama took office.
What's the connection there?

Bush Is Back!(And Iraq War Was A Huge Success)

Debating Syria, GOP Pundits Polish The Bush Presidency

Missing from the collective rewriting of history? Facts. Like the acknowledgement that more than 3,000 Americans died from terror attacks while Bush was in office, and that his Iraq War ranks among the most costly U.S. foreign policy blunders in recent history.(A decade later, Iraq remains besieged by violence.)

Indeed. What's most amazing about the brash rewriting of history is how conservative commentators boldly hold up the Iraq War (!) as an example of the success President Obama should try to emulate when searching for a solution to the Syria crisis. Not only did Bush apparently win the Iraq War, it was a masterful victory.

"By the time Bush left office," wrote William McGurn in the New York Post this month, "he'd handed Obama a war in Iraq that had been won." (Mission accomplished!) Like lots of conservatives, McGurn insists he misses the "decisive" Bush, while quietly ignoring the fact that Bush's decisiveness led to a $1 trillion dollar-plus war that claimed the lives of approximately 4,500 Americans, more than 100,000 Iraqis, and helped wipe out America's budget surplus.

But forget about those pesky facts. The Iraq War stands as "the most magnificent United States foreign policy success in 50 years," according to Ann Coulter. And Rush Limbaugh assured listeners last week the war "was not a mess" until the media "convinced people it was a mess." (Liberal bias!)

You don't have to search long to find even former Bush allies who demolish that kind of Limbaugh spin. "[T]he Iraq War was a disaster," noted Bush's chief re-election strategist, Matthew Dowd while appearing on ABC's This Week earlier this year. "We spent over $1 trillion. We lost thousands of lives."

If you'd prefer a the perspective of a career military man who spent 15 years in the Middle East, recall that retired General Anthony Zinni famously referred to the Bush administration's war strategy as a "brain fart."

But if, as conservative claim, the Iraq War ended with a stirring U.S. victory, it stands to reason that the intelligence used during the run-up to the war was also airtight, right? It was if you're Wall Street Journal columnist Bret Stephens, who recently asserted that "The case the Bush administration assembled on Iraqi WMD was far stronger than what the Obama administration has offered on Syria."

Yikes.

To refute that whopper, look no further than Colin Powell, who as Bush's Secretary of State famously shared the evidence marshaled by the administration to wage war with Iraq. Since then, Powell has been quite clear that "the evidence was deeply flawed," as he wrote in his 2012 autobiography.
