Barack Obama, our next President

American President doesn't negotiate with hostage takers who want to subvert American law. Obamacare has become part of the settled law f the land--an American law since 2009 so get over it and move on.
The goals of the House of Repeals are to put the civility back into civilization, to return our country to the rule of law and to enforce the rights of the sovereign people of the United States; through the most stringent enforcement possible of the Bill of Rights.
To accomplish this our primary method will be bills or constitutional amendments of repeal, presented to the voters of the several states, starting with California, that will do four things:Â

Clarify the present law (the Constitution of the United States and/or the state in question) in such breadth and sweeping detail; in both plain English and Legalese; that not only may regular people understand it, but lawyers may understand it too.Â
Define the important words and ideas so that interpretation is unnecessary and misunderstanding is not possible.Â
Repeal the unconstitutional or immoral statutes and regulations that violate the Constitutions or the rights of sovereign individuals.Â
Punish the people guilty of violating the Constitutions of the United States and/or the state in question and the rights of sovereign individuals. This will be done by putting teeth into the repeal law or amendment that:Â
define voting; as a state legislator or a member of a lesser legislative body; for a bill that reinstates or replaces a repealed statute or regulation in whole or in part, in intent or effect, or commits a new act that violates the prohibitions on state action; as a felony with a heavy fine and prison term.Â
define signing such a bill with the intent to enforce it as though it were a law by any Governor or lesser executive officer (mayors, etc.) as a felony with a heavy fine and prison term..Â
define enforcement of the old statutes; or new ones for the same or similar purposes; as a felony with a heavy fine and prison term. This includes judges, police and other bureaucrats.Â

Unconstitutional statutes are not laws.

Kids on the hill.... who are currently acting like wanker wanna be marxists Dic-taters....

Lesson one: Learn what "CIVILITY" means so the nation can move from DYSFUNCTIONAL to at least having Some appearance of being somewhat Functional again.

We understand why this American idealogy might take some time to processing for the little commie- marxist megalomaniacs, so the nation waits patiently while they try and dislodge their egomaniacal heads from their own butts full o partisan crappola.

A U.S. debt default would cause stocks to crash, would cause bonds to crash, would cause interest rates to soar wildly out of control, would cause a massive credit crunch, and would cause a derivatives panic that would be absolutely unprecedented. And that would just be for starters. But don’t just take my word for it. These are the things that top financial experts all over the planet are saying will happen if there is an extended U.S. debt default.
Because they are so close together, the “government shutdown” and the “debt ceiling deadline” are being confused by many Americans.
As I wrote about the other day, the “partial government shutdown” that we are experiencing right now is pretty much a non-event. Yeah, some national parks are shut down and some federal workers will have their checks delayed, but it is not the end of the world. In fact, only about 17 percent of the federal government is actually shut down at the moment. This “shutdown” could continue for many more weeks and it would not affect the global economy too much.
On the other hand, if the debt ceiling deadline (approximately October 17th) passes without an agreement that would be extremely dangerous.
And if the U.S. government is eventually forced to start delaying interest payments on U.S. debt (which could potentially happen as soon as November), that would be absolutely catastrophic.
Once again, just don’t take my word for it. The following are 12 very ominous warnings about what a U.S. debt default would mean for the global economy…
#1 Gerald Epstein, a professor of economics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst:“If the US does default, that will make the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy look like a cakewalk”
#2 Tim Bitsberger, a former Treasury official under President George W. Bush:“If we miss an interest payment, that would blow Lehman out of the water”
#3 Peter Tchir, founder of New York-based TF Market Advisors:“Once the system starts to break down related to settlement and payments, then liquidity disappears, as we saw after Lehman”
#4 Bill Isaac, chairman of Cincinnati-based Fifth Third Bancorp:“We can’t even imagine all the things that might happen, just like Henry Paulson couldn’t imagine all the bad things that might happen if he let Lehman go down”
#5 Jim Grant, founder of Grant’s Interest Rate Observer:“Financial markets are all confidence-based. If that confidence is shaken, you have disaster.”
#6 Richard Bove, VP of research at Rafferty Capital Markets:“If they seriously default on the debt, what we’re really talking about is a depression”
#7 Chinese vice finance minister Zhu Guangyao:“The U.S. is clearly aware of China’s concerns about the financial stalemate [in Washington] and China’s request for the US to ensure the safety of Chinese investments.”
#8 The U.S. Treasury Department:“A default would be unprecedented and has the potential to be catastrophic: credit markets could freeze, the value of the dollar could plummet, U.S. interest rates could skyrocket, the negative spillovers could reverberate around the world, and there might be a financial crisis and recession that could echo the events of 2008 or worse”
#9 Goldman Sachs:“We estimate that the fiscal pull-back would amount to 9pc of GDP. If this were allowed to occur, it could lead to a rapid downturn in economic activity if not reversed quickly”
#10 Simon Johnson, former chief economist for the IMF:“It would be insane to default, but it’s no longer a zero-percent probability”
#11 Warren Buffett about the potential of a debt default:“It should be like nuclear bombs, basically too horrible to use”
#12 Bloomberg:“Anyone who remembers the collapse of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. little more than five years ago knows what a global financial disaster is. A U.S. government default, just weeks away if Congress fails to raise the debt ceiling as it now threatens to do, will be an economic calamity like none the world has ever seen.”

Poor Duh A Vey, has yet to figure out that the stupid, no brainer part is the jackboot licking in herd pack lemming lines of "closed" primaries.

Truly Independent US citizen voters scoff at the patheticness of partisan bobbleheadness.

A drop of oil in a bath tub full of water.

NEW ORLEANS (AP)— For weeks after BP's massive 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, people across the globe were captivated by a live video feed from underwater cameras that showed the company's blown-out well belching plumes of black crude into the water.

On Monday, more than three years later, clips from the spill cam were projected on a screen in a New Orleans courtroom while lawyers for BP and the federal government quarreled over how much oil gushed out of BP's Macondo well during the 87-day crisis. The images helped some of the scientists calculate how much oil polluted the Gulf.

Determining how much oil spilled is a multibillion-dollar question for U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier, who is presiding over the trial involving the deadly Deepwater Horizon rig explosion and the nation's worst offshore oil spill. The judge ultimately could decide how much more money BP owes for its role in the disaster.

Government experts estimate 4.2 million barrels, or 176 million gallons, spilled into the Gulf. BP has urged Barbier to use an estimate of 2.45 million barrels, or nearly 103 million gallons, in calculating any Clean Water Act penalties. Both sides agree that 810,000 barrels, or 34 million gallons, escaped the well but were captured before the crude could pollute the Gulf.

Under the Clean Water Act, a polluter can be forced to pay a maximum of either $1,100 or $4,300 per barrel of spilled oil. The higher maximum applies if the company is found grossly negligent, as the government argues BP should be. But penalties can be assessed at amounts lower than those caps.

Using the government's figures, a maximum penalty if the company is found grossly negligent could total $18 billion. Using the company's figures, that maximum penalty would be around $10.5 billion.

Megyn Kelly To Cruz:'What's It Like To Be The Most Hated Man In America?'

"All right, so now answer the question," Kelly said.

"Look, I think there have been more than a few Democrats who are throwing rocks my direction and to quote the Bard,'Methinks she doth protest too much,'" Cruz said.

"They are throwing every insult they can but the reality is most Americans don't care about politicians bickering," he continued. "They're looking for people to solve the problems. What we need to do right now is what the House of Represenatives are doing. The House of Representatives is passing bills to fund vital priorities of government and unfortunately President Obama and the Senate Democrats are refusing to negotiate. They're refusing to pass bills."

In fact, the Senate did pass a continuing resolution to fund the government but that bill did not undermine the Affordable Care Act, a sticking point for Cruz and other tea partiers. House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) insists that the Senate bill could not pass the lower chamber, despite media reports to the contrary.

'We'll act like we're funding everything(so we can lie to the voters and tell them we're doing SOMETHING!) if you give us everything we want which we know you'll never do!'

sorry GOP, you lost the election. you get nothing. figure out how to win an election, quit your crying, and let the government get back to doing what it does just fine without any help from you.

What part of it is the government liability because they obstructed all the normal actions that would control the well and prevent BP from re-entering the well to execute normal blowout control procedures?
That well should have been controlled in three weeks or less. My estimate was two weeks. Some of my fellow experts have said as little as 10 days, and others say as long as 3 weeks. I have not heard any well control expert give any estimate of longer than 3 weeks.
Why did the government not allow the normal well control procedures to be executed?
Is this related to Obama waiting until the oil to cover some beach, which never happened, so he could do a photo op, and the entire country got tired of Obama waiting for his photo op opportunity and had to rush down to the scene to make it look like he was actually involved?

Everything was fine until ObamaKare.
Now, after ObamaKare, those same companies that didn't change before ObamaKare are eliminating the health care benefit.

By the way, those health care benefits will be taxed, thanks to ObamaKare. Every person who receives a health insurance benefit from their company will pay more taxes with no increase in income.

Get rid of this Marxist welfare garbage. I don't care what needs to be done to get rid of it. Just get rid of it.

The GOP’s Ongoing Absurd Predicament

Republicans are stuck with insurgents that want the impossible and leaders that don’t know what’s going on in their own party, and together they have created a situation in which all of them appear to have no idea what they’re doing. No wonder one recent poll found Republicans trailing by 9 points on the generic House ballot.
