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

Obama’s economic program is taken directly from the Marxist playbook and Marxist economics.
Reviewing Marx’s 10-point platform for how to socialize a country’s economy in stages (“The Communist Manifesto,” chapter two), Team Obama and his congressional progressive allies have taken actions to further the goals laid out in all 10 of the planks in the Marx platform.
If you want to read some examples, here they are:
You don't admit that your "mentor" was a Marxist and seek out Marxist professors in college unless you tend to lean toward Marxism yourself.
You're going to have to do better than an opinion piece by a libertarian professor at a second rate right wing "Christian" college that espouses the very un-Christian free market theology. I read his opinion piece and some others written by him and find it easy to dismiss them as the rantings of a right wing libertarian who thinks that corporations should be able to rape and pillage the environment for profit.
His assertion that Obama often has thwarted the development of domestic energy supplies through arbitrary regulatory control over massive tracts of federally owned land and restricting drilling in American waters off our coasts is a lie. In March 2010 the President proposed opening vast tracts of off shore sites for oil exploration and drilling ranging from Florida to Delaware and the east Gulf coast and northern Alaska many of these for the first time. Some environmentally sensitive areas are still off limits but to my mind that's exhibiting proper stewardship of our land.
His assertion that Obama is "obsessed" with taxing the rich is also a lie. Taxes on the upper incomes are less than they were under the Clinton Administration.
His statement on estate taxes is another lie. Under a deal made with the GOP Obama exempted more than 40,000 estates worth $1 million to $10 million even in the face of opposition by many Democrats.
He puts the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act squarely on Obama when in fact as part of the HIRE Act it was passed by the House 217-201 and the Senate 68-29 which means it was agreed to by members of both parties.
He criticizes Dodd-Frank which prevents large institutions from gambling with depositors money. He is also against the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau which as I've stated before will make it less likely that you'll get screwed on your home purchase and gives you recourse if you are. Should the government exert control over large institutions who if they make a mistake can topple the economy? Past history tells us yes.
Obama has in fact opposed the "Fairness Doctrine" so that's another lie.
High speed rail is not this moron's opinion not a "boondoggle" but a realistic way to decrease dependence on fossil fuels and whose construction would create thousands of jobs.
He also decries "free" education as Marxist when in fact it's biggest champion was Thomas Jefferson.
We can see where this is going, Mark Hendrickson is just another faux Christian who shills for those that Jesus leveled his harshest judgment on.

The concept of threatening, calling for, and inciting violence against the government has never been a part of being a patriotic American.
Whether it was Sarah Palin telling her sychochants to "don't retreat, reload", Michelle Bachman calling for Minnesotans to be armed and dangerous or Sharon Angle citing second Amendment remedies it is always teabaggers calling for violence against their enemies in government. Tea Party Taliban name is well deserved.
If they were the Taliban, Obammy would be kissing their terrorist asses right now.

Navigator Dress Code: Hoodie with Ass Crack Showing

Experience: Community organizers, ACORN a plus

Knowledge: Fluent in illegal alien, English not required

Special Skills: Selling personal information and stealing social security numbers

Welcome to ObamaWreck! Americans nationwide spent Tuesday struggling with the much-hyped "Affordable Care Act" health insurance exchanges.

Server meltdowns, error messages and security glitches plagued the federal and state government websites as open enrollment began.

But when taxpayers discover exactly WHO will be navigating them through the bureaucratic maze, they may be glad they didn't get through.

U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius controls a $54 million slush fund to hire thousands of "navigators," "in-person assisters" and counselors, who are now propagandizing and recruiting Obamacare recipients into the government-run exchanges.


Case in point: the seedy nonprofit Seedco. This community-organizing group snagged lucrative multimillion-dollar navigator contracts in Georgia, Maryland, Tennessee and New York.

The New York Post reports this week that the outfit "is partnering with dozens of agencies, such as the Gay Men's Health Crisis, Food Bank for New York City and the Chinese American Planning Council, in each of (the Big Apple's) five boroughs."

They'll have access to potential enrollees' income levels, birthdates, addresses, eligibility for government assistance, Social Security numbers and intensely personal medical information.

Given the enormous responsibility to handle sensitive data in a careful, neutral manner, combined with the overwhelming pressure to boost Obamacare enrollments, YOU'D THINK the feds would only choose navigators with the most impeccable records. Yet, less than a year ago, Seedco agreed to settle a civil fraud lawsuit "for faking at least 1,400 of 6,500 job placements under a $22.2 million federally funded contract with the city."

Seedco's corrupt behavior went far beyond defrauding taxpayers through abuse of New York City programs, federal Labor Department funding and federal stimulus dollars.

Seedco (which stands for "Structured Employment Economic Development Corporation") tried to destroy and defame whistleblowing official Bill Harper, who discovered and reported the rampant falsification of data.

First, Seedco denied the charges;

next, they trashed Harper's reputation in the pages of The New York Times.

Only after the U.S. Attorney's office in Manhattan brought suit did the organization acknowledge systemic, repeated wrongdoing.

Seedco forked over a $1.7 million settlement in December 2012. Mere months later, they were racking up federal Obamacare navigator work.

Yet, another example of the inmates running the asylum.

The billionaire who created Beanie Babies is expected to plead guilty when he appears before a federal judge on tax evasion charges.

H. Ty Warner's lawyer has previously said the 69-year-old would enter a guilty plea during Wednesday's arraignment in Chicago as part of an agreement with prosecutors.

Lookey Lookey at who is minding the ObamaCare store!

What you like fries with your identity being stolen?


The feds and Seedco assure us that new management is in place. They rearranged some deck chairs, created a new "compliance program" and hired an independent reviewer. But an ethos of by-any-means-necessary book-cooking and a culture of intimidating whistleblowers don't disappear overnight. Seedco shredded documents for three years to phony up their job placement statistics; city government overseers knew about it. The Nonprofit Quarterly noted that Seedco's fraud was "kind of breathtaking" in its "creativity and illegal audacity," including:

--"Taking credit for a job candidate's prior employment as job placements;

--Reporting job placements when the job candidates remained unemployed;

--Falsifying dates of job placements;

--Using other Seedco programs to collect information on clients in order to falsely report job placements; and

--Reporting job placements for people who were not Seedco clients and had not been placed in their jobs by Seedco."

The feds detailed how Seedco managers would instruct clerical workers to troll and for resumes and then "report the employment of individuals sourced from those downloaded resumes as job placements." Other employees exploited their relationships with businesses to "gather information from the businesses' current employees. Seedco then used that information to falsely report that employment as a job placement obtained for the candidate by Seedco, although the individuals had no prior relationship with Seedco and had not been recruited into the job by Seedco."

This entire government-nonprofit alliance rests on dragooning as many people as possible into government programs, including food stamps, CHIP (the federal Children's Health Insurance Program) and now Obamacare. One of Seedco's officials actually said the fraud case "made us a stronger organization." Yes, they actually sold their deliberate number-fudging as an asset instead of a liability. And four states swallowed the pitch whole. The spirit of fraud-stained ACORN and its Nanny State progeny lives.

So, buyers, beware: Obamacare security "glitches" are not just a bug. They're a feature.

Republicans Are Losing So Badly They Put Out the Most Pathetic Piece of Propaganda Yet

A rather desperate House Majority Leader Eric Cantor tweeted a picture of (all male) Republicans sitting at a table, lamenting,“We sit ready to negotiate with the Senate.#FairnessForAll”.

Republicans think tweeting a picture of them sitting at a big table will magically erase the 18 times they killed Senate Democrats’ attempts to get budget reconciliation under way.

Republicans are trying to fight back against the results of Tuesday’s polls that show (shocking only to Republicans) that the voters hold Republicans responsible for their actions, including this shutdown. In fact, if the 2014 midterms were held right now, it would be lights out for the GOP’s gerrymandered hold on the House. Losing even when you cheat isn’t a good sign of your party’s health and national viability.

To recap, we are only here because Republicans refused to sit down for budget talks unless they had a hostage, so they delayed talks until they could park our economic recovery on the edge of a cliff and point and snicker as they pushed it forward.

We got here because Republicans refused to negotiate on a budget, which led to the sequester that Republicans love. We are now just trying to get a CR to fund the government for 6 weeks, and Republicans are using it push us over the edge of our fragile recovery.

We are shutdown, and so Republicans took a picture of themselves sitting at a table claiming they are ready to sit down — with a gun to Democrats’ heads. They wouldn’t sit down until they had that hostage pushed over the edge of the cliff.

This is the most pathetic piece of Republican propaganda yet, and that’s saying something. This tops Speaker Boehner’s relentless attempts to appear as if Republicans care about jobs by standing in front of a press wall with the word “JOBS!” screaming at the viewer. This tops Boehner waving around the nearly empty packet with “JOBS” on the front of it. This tops the nearly empty save for the big pictures “budgets” and “ideas” Republicans tout. This tops Republicans using a super big font to fill a nearly empty “plan”.

Republicans are trying desperately to pretend that they are shutting down the government over fairness and equality (still not a good reason to shutdown the government, by the way boys).

The only good news here is that Republicans are avowing a sudden affinity for the value of “equality”. Who’s going to ask them if “equality” applies to women, gays, the poor, union members, African Americans, Hispanics, the middle class…

Listening to Republicans whine about being called terrorists and screeching that they are so ready to sit down and talk now that they have a gun to the head of the economy is as annoying as all manufactured dramas are. This picture of the party of the “suicide caucus” sitting at a table with a hidden gun aimed at us all is hardly soothing. Now they’re whining to boot.

Countdown until one of them falls into hysterics on the floor,“Leave Republicans alone!”

What we learn early in life...

Where do these young adults 'learn' that they can go to school and not pay for it...

"e students at for-profit colleges continue to have the highest two-year default rates (13.6 percent), this figure represents a decline from 2009, when 15% of these students were defaulting. Meanwhile, the rate of students who are defaulting at non-profit public and private universities has climbed 3.4 percent and .6 percent, respectively."

Obamacare exchanges launch: Big volume, tech hiccups

Observers said that what federal officials called the "extraordinary volume" suggested that the government-run exchanges may well be on track to achieving the Affordable Care Act's goal of providing affordable, comprehensive health coverage to 7 million or more people in 2014. The volume came even though recent surveys showed low overall public awareness of the exchanges' existence and operation.

"They are doing gangbusters," said Chini Krishnan, CEO of the online insurance market . "They should be very, very happy today. It is awesome news."

What did Pelosi say about no where to make cuts?

"Bureaucrats at tiny federal agency FMCS buy legions of luxuries with purchase cards"

"One federal employee leased a $53,000 take-home car with taxpayer money in apparent defiance of federal regulations and regularly billed the government for service at shops such as BMW of Fairfax."

"Government employees used federal purchase cards to order items such as a $560 Bose stereo and $1,490 for two high-definition televisions that could not be located"

"In two years, the 233-person agency bought at least 38 LCD projectors costing up to $9,500 each" where left to make cuts in spending...Pelosi...

"...$30,000 in two years on picture frames..."

where can the Bloated Government save money?

"$3,930 at Balfour Products, a company listed in expense records as selling "jewelry, watches [and] clocks" and items akin to class rings"

Let's go over this again. The election wasn't determined by campaigning. Before the storm and Christie sabotaging the Republicans, Romney was projected to win the election. The change in polls reflected the change in vote counts. Notice, that is "change" in, like you would use a delta in math.
As to the absolute count, I said this:

You invent way too much in your post. For example, concerning the election, I pointed out the fact that there were very many locations where it was obvious some programmer was so stupid they programmed the voting machines to steal 100 percent of the vote. Naturally, most of the programmers weren't that stupid, and they programmed the voting machines to steal one in three or one in four votes.
Nobody knows who won the last election.
