The CBO said it will reduce the debt. They obviously screwed up & did not consult the expert, El Flackbo, before providing their report.

Obama specifically gave 3 million dollars to illegals that do not work as tax refunds.
While harassing Conservatives.
So, you believe that people who have income taxes held from their paychecks when they don't make enough to pay taxes shouldn't receive refunds? Typical Reslug. Always trying to steal everyone else's money and put it in their pocket.

Its Funny Sharpton And Jackson didnt have this message for Black Americans After Tupac and Biggie were murdered by their Masters OOps I mean Malcolm X and Martin Luther King I compare them because they were replaced with GARBAGE Why 1 Trillion Dollars In Black Buying Power Should Be Used To Start Black Businesses
Entrepreneurship is key driver in empowering black communities
By 2015 African Americans will yield $1.1 trillion in spending. But that thirteen-figure power should be used to invest in not only patronizing black-owned businesses but starting black-owned businesses, says Congressman Donald Payne Jr.(D, NJ), who won a special election in 2012 following the death of his father, representative Donald Payne Sr. As a member of the House Committee on Small Business, Payne has championed minority entrepreneurs gaining greater access to capital and resources. He has worked with the U.S. Small Business Administration to help them increase their contracting spend with minority-owned businesses. Payne led a panel on empowering the black community through entrepreneurship at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s 43rd Annual Legislative Conference in Washington, DC.

Among the group was Dr. Dt Ogilvie, dean and professor of business strategy at the Saunders College of Business at the Rochester Institute of Technology. The prevailing model for economic development has been a focus on jobs and housing for the past 50 years, but it has not worked for most inner cities, she says.“You can get job training but not get a job; you can buy a house but that doesn’t create wealth.” Learning the skills to create and successfully run a business creates wealth, she adds.

Its Funny Kwame Toure once said of Black People if you are only consumers you can only devastate like Locust but if you are Producers you can CONTROLL YOUR OWN DESTINY so we bragg about a Trillion $ consumer based economy if Black America was An indepindent Nation it would be in the Third World Of Economy just look at you now Black Americans Should Be the Best And Brightest Around the World not just sports and even in sports they are not the best

<quoted text>At least Bush wasn’t viewed as a Wuss—“they” hated him, but so what. At least he didn’t promised to be “flexible” and then bend over and grab his ankles.
Written in June 2013 before Obama bungled Syria and really became Putin’s bitch (no wonder he flipped on gay marriage):
Wussy Diplomacy at Work
When Obama sought the Presidency he promised a new approach to foreign policy. Under Bush and “cowboy diplomacy”(a/k/a Balls) our relations were at an all-time low as depicted by Obama and the left. He would use his charm and reason to win foreign nations to our side and cause. He would even accomplish this remarkable feat with our adversaries.
Step one… an apology tour of the Middle East to gain their respect…
Step two…
It definitely worked with our leftist allies. His initial speech in Berlin in 2008 attracted a crowd of over 100,000. He was adored by socialist Europe for the simple fact that he wasn’t Bush. He even won a Nobel Peace Prize for that “accomplishment”.
This month (June 2013) Obama returned to Berlin, and attracted a crowd of… less than 5000. The message from Europe is clear “The Thrill is Gone”.
Europe has finally learned that when it comes to the man behind the curtain; it’s all just SMOKE & MIRRORS.
These theatrics may have assured one of the WORST Presidents in American history a second term but the price the U.S. will continue to pay for this social/racial expunging will take decades to unravel.
“Since his first day in office, President Barack Obama’s foreign policy has rested on outreach: resetting ties with Russia, building a partnership with China and offering a fresh start with antagonistic leaders from Iran to Venezuela. But the global travels on Monday of NSA turncoat Edward Snowden highlight the limits of that approach. Leaders Obama has wooed – and met recently – were willing to snub the American president.”— Reuters
Fer keeriest sake, Patty, Dumbya is the moran that looked in Putin's "eyes and read the man's heart" (a prediction of the shirtless photo spreads, no doubt). Effin' killer KGB agent and the Connecticut Cowboy falls in brokeback...what a joke you are.

omg a FOX catfight. i would watch that. who do you think would win? the FOX bimbo who tried to twerk on air? that was worth watching about 50 times. the wife thought i'd lost my mind.

The union leaders believed Obama when he told them that they wouldn't lose their coverage...and now they know that he lied.

Back on March 1, I noted that according to a Government Accountability Office (GAO) report released February 26, ObamaCare will increase the long-term federal deficit by $6.2 trillion.

$6.2 trillion.

Considering the growing instability of the U.S. financial house of cards, one might wonder if the costs associated with universal health coverage won’t be the straw that eventually breaks the camel’s back.

<quoted text>The Liberal controlled music industry destroys free thoughts Why does the Music Industry keep “Underground Hip-Hop Music” Underground?Music is everybody’s possession . It’s only publishers who think that people own it. John Lennon
The Corporate Music industry has had a monopoly on what youths from all around the world listen to.
They have been controlling the thoughts and beliefs of our youths and even adults through their control of the music industry. The Music industry is a multi-billion dollar business. There are now “Big Three” record labels since 2012 that include Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music Group and Universal Music Group that dominate the market. They control the artist and set what percentage of the sales receipts they keep as profits. They also keep the competition between the major record labels at a minimum since they are already a monopoly.
There are many underground hip-hop artists that the political and corporate elite don’t want the public to know about. They control what kind of music is produced and sold to the public. In an interview with Jay Woodson, organizer of National Hip Hop Political Convention (NHHPC) in Philadelphia with online news source The Final Call:
tell me something i don't know.

one of the things i know is...that the push to recover money from pirated music is nothing more than the industry trying to steal more money from musicians. so on this subject we agree because i could go on about the problems with the industry all day long.
