Barack Obama, our next President

Actually Ray, if you wren't so GD stupid you would know the current shutdown is because Republicans refuse to fund the government unless they weaken the ACA through some defunding & through a delay.
I asked what if the Democrats refused to fund government unless the gun laws were changed to ban handguns.
Now an intelligent person would understand that is about parties holding the country hostage to force their minority position on unrelated issues.
A dumbass would think this is about comparing issues.
Dave I tried to make that exact same comparison, the reply was "what gun control legislation. Logic and critical thinking skills are not the stong suits of conservatives and are probably completely absent in the far right teabaggers

Today there is a New Confederacy, an insurgent political force that has captured the Republican Party and is taking up where the Old Confederacy left off in its efforts to bring down the federal government.

No shelling of a Union fort, no bloody battlefield clashes, no Good Friday assassination of a hated president — none of that nauseating, horrendous stuff. But the behavior is, nonetheless, malicious and appalling.

The New Confederacy, as churlish toward President Obama as the Old Confederacy was to Lincoln, has accomplished what its predecessor could not: It has shut down the federal government, and without even firing a weapon or taking 620,000 lives, as did the Old Confederacy’s instigated Civil War.

Not stopping there, however, the New Confederacy aims to destroy the full faith and credit of the United States, setting off economic calamity at home and abroad — all in the name of “fiscal sanity.”

The shutdown isn’t a new story. It’s the same story as the demise of sensible gun control legislation, even after Newtown, which was supposed to change everything. It’s the same story as the stalling of immigration reform. It’s all one cancer, sprouting tumors of various sizes. The mass we’ve been staring at over the past week just happens to be bigger and uglier than the ones we beheld in the buildup.

Our federal government doesn’t work, at least not the Congress, not the way it should if we’re going to preserve and pass on the treasure and blessings that were bequeathed to us, not the way it should if we’re going to strut around ceaselessly congratulating ourselves on how exceptional we are. We’re exceptional all right, in that we can’t summon the will, discipline or character to fix even those problems that most of us would like to see addressed.

The buck really does stop with him. Not Republicans.
Maybe when his approval numbers dip down into the 30s (41% now), he'll have an epiphany that is hasn't been all about him after all.
Yeah stupid, Obama's numbers are going up while republican numbers are in a free fall. Tea Party darling and mastermind of the government shutdown is at a 22% approval rating.
The Republicans aren't leaders of any sort you clueless twit. They're acting like a bunch of four year olds throwing a tantrum and damaging the economy because they aren't getting their way. There is no way that the President or the Democrats should accede to these blackmailers an defund or even delay legislation that's going to help millions of Americans.

Federal judge slaps down Darrell Issa over request for shutdown exception

A federal judge was less than amused when Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) requested that a lawsuit he filed two years ago be allowed to move forward in spite of the fact that federal courts have been immobilized by the Republican shutdown of the U.S. government. According to Think Progress, Judge Amy Berman Jackson refused to consider violating the shutdown to handle the case, saying that it’s ridiculous for Issa to make the request, considering his caucus’ role in ordering the government to close.

Issa filed a motion as part of his House Oversight and Government Reform Committee’s failed investigation into supposed misdeeds by the Department of Justice in the “Fast and Furious” operation. Issa is still attempting to order Attorney General Eric Holder to hand over confidential documents or risk being held in contempt of court.

The motion insisted that a “Contingency Plan provides that Department employees may continue to work on matters necessary to the discharge of the President’s constitutional duties and powers,” and therefore his actions against President Barack Obama and the Justice Department should not be affected by the federal work stoppage.

Judge Jackson responded,“There are no exigent circumstances in this case that would justify an order of the Court forcing furloughed attorneys to return to their desks. Moreover, while the vast majority of litigants who now must endure a delay in the progress of their matters do so due to circumstances beyond their control, that cannot be said of the House of Representatives, which has played a role in the shutdown that prompted the stay motion.”

In other words, Jackson told Issa that if he wants to continue his quixotic campaign against the White House and Department of Justice, he and his cohorts in the House should lift the shutdown order. Otherwise, he can wait for the government to reopen like the “vast majority of litigants.”

"Ship, baby, ship! Calls come for US to export oil

Ship, baby, ship! Calls come for US to export oil
.
Now that the U.S. has edged past Russia as the world's largest oil and gas producer, the drumbeat to export some of that oil bounty is expected to get louder as U.S. production continues to grow.
The North American energy picture has been evolving rapidly, as U.S. producers use drilling advances to extract oil and gas from shale rock and other difficult-to-access areas. That has created a boom, with the U.S. expected to produce an average 7.5 million barrels a day of oil in 2013 and 8.4 million barrels a day in 2014, according to the Energy Information Administration. The U.S. still imports about 8 million barrels a day.
The U.S. also has the world's cheapest and most abundant natural gas supply. Increased exports of natural gas are already on the horizon, with four export terminals approved and expected to begin operating by 2015. But federal law prohibits the export of U.S. crude to most countries-only nations that have free trade pacts with the United States can be sent oil exports-even though the U.S. has become a net exporter of refined petroleum products and is looking to export even more...."
The United States consumed a total of 6.87 billion barrels (18.83 million barrels per day) in 2011 and 7.0 billion barrels (19.18 million barrels per day) of refined petroleum products and biofuels in 2010. For both years, this was about 22% of total world petroleum consumption. So why are we exporting oil again?

Cuccinelli shuns Cruz limelight

That was awkward.

In the clearest sign yet of the potent effect of the government shutdown on the Virginia governor’s race, Republican Ken Cuccinelli avoided being photographed with Ted Cruz at a gala they headlined here Saturday night—even leaving before the Texas senator rose to speak.

Backstage, a source said, Cuccinelli urged Cruz to work with Democrats to end the federal shutdown. But he did not make that point, or even acknowledge Cruz, in short public comments to some 1,100 social conservatives.

Cruz has become the face of GOP intransigence, and the conservative attorney general’s effort to distance himself from congressional Republicans reflects how damaging Cuccinelli realizes a prolonged shutdown may be for his campaign.

Obama Keeps Military Golf Courses Open… Closes Military Grocery Stores

Obama’s military golf courses are open, even while the military bases shut down the grocery stores. What is Obama’s response to the shutdown? He goes golfing, of course.

Yes, this means that while the government is taking on the vets, shutting down privately funded parks, and pointlessly keeping the Grand Canyon closed, Obama is golfing on federal lands.

Welcome to Obama’s America, every bit as corrupt as Chicago could dream. It’s sickening now on a level that Obama’s approval rating is collapsing even among liberals. He’s intentionally hurting people as much as possible.

you could try asking the oil companies, but my guess is oil companies are exporting oil to increase their profits and the Federal gov't has nothing to do with it

IQs is not a good measure of cognitive abilities. Differences between groups is likely due to lack of preparation & social issues.

Galt basically called blacks stupid because they did not perform well on certain tests for which preparation varies.

It was a racist statement. Galt has posted racial slurs in the past.

one question, do you have any evidence, any peered review studies that can back up the claim that whites score 15-20% higher on IQ tests, especially those tests that are culturally neutral.
