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

This is what Liberals call progress ‘Today’s Middle Class Resembles 1970s Poor’ I guess this is what Obama meant when he said ‘We Need to Put The Car in Reverse’ the Gap between Have and the Have Not’s has exploded under Obama!!

Michelle: "Look at how much tax they pay".
Dumbass Michelle doesn't realize that she is really saying " OMG OMG look at how much profit they make"
Then she is saying " OMG OMG they need subsidies OMG OMG"
You can try your half fact subsidy arguments all you want. These are oil industry subsidies.
OMG, an evil profit making company. I'll bet some people there even make more than other people there. If only more companies could be like Solyandra. Or the country could be more like the districts in the Hunger Games--Utopia for Democrats.

Sometimes the Thugs and Knuckleheads Are One and the Same

After a weekend of trying to imbibe as much as I could of the back-and-forthing over this latest Manufactured and Unnecessary Crisis—despite much better things to imbibe, like postseason baseball, football, or even hemlock—I shouted at no one in particular:

What the hell is this thing about, anyway?

I mean, is it Obamacare?

Or is it long-term debt?

One minute, the showboating Bazooka Ted and His Gang tried to hold up the bank and defund—or maybe just delay; or at the very least marginally fiddle with—Obamacare. Something! The “Vitter Amendment”! Anything! The next minute, we’re talking about a “grand bargain” again. An “epic battle” over spending. Doing something to save our grandchildren from runaway government debt.

If you want to win an epic battle, it’s probably a good thing to have a coherent idea of what you’re actually battling over.

Then, after all this imbibing and shouting, I came across the incomparable Erick Erickson, at the clearinghouse of unbridled idiocy known as RedState.com .

He starts out all cocksure:“Republicans are winning the shutdown fight, and Democrats know it.”

Ooooooh.

Later he asks the same question I just did:“do we want to stop Obamacare or do we want to stop the debt ceiling increase? My view is that we cannot do both at the same time.”

No kidding?

Thanks for the newsflash.

AND... Just look at how much effort the nazi liberals put into promoting this huge lie about how socialism has been "misused" by numerous bad dictators and societies, tarnishing its good name... Give nazisim another chance. Liberals: We are the better type of Socialist... LMFAO...
These idiot nazi liberals have followed the socialist philosophy to its logical conclusion. More people have died on this planet cursing some form or other of socialism than have died due to ANY other reason. In fact, more have died because of socialism than for ALL other reasons and religous wars combined. Aren't the ghetto liberals proud?
It's the culture...
The nuber of people killed by their own government compared to the number of people killed by a war in the past century prove your point beyond any discussion.

With all the proof available to everyone, it's amazing that anyone is so ignorant they'll say things like "our government wouldn't do that" and "it can't happen here".

Do the same things and the same things will happen.

8 Flagrant Examples of Republican Shutdown Hypocrisy
They claim they didn't want a shutdown, but these GOP politicians have been clamoring for one since 2010
8.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) has been taking the closing of the WW II memorial hard, demanding that it be allowed to stay open while the rest of the government stays closed. However, in 2010 Rep. Gohmert was more than willing to see everything shut down – for the sake of the children, of course. ThinkProgress reports Rep. Gohmert saying, "Listen, if it takes a shutdown of government to stop the runaway spending, we owe that to our children and our grandchildren. I don't have any grandchildren yet, but if we don't stop the runaway spending – even if it means showing how serious we are –okay, government is going to have to shut down until you runaway-spending people get it under control. And if you can't get it under control, then we just stop government until you realize, you know, yes we can."
There are reportedly enough votes in the House to produce a clean continuing resolution and end this shutdown for good. But until Boehner is willing to buck the hardliners in his own party, that vote is never going to happen.

Gun-rights advocates in Colorado have started gathering signatures in support of another recall effort against a Democratic state senator following two successful recalls of lawmakers over votes in support of gun control laws.

Recall organizers received certification Friday from the Colorado Secretary of State’s office to gather signatures in the effort to recall Sen. Evie Hudak, a Democrat from Westminster, Colo., who backed the controversial gun measures, the Denver Post reported.

Uh Oh! Reality Check for Libs:

Obamacare Supporters Shocked by Own Premium Increases

Cindy Vinson and Tom Waschura are big believers in the Affordable Care Act. They vote independent and are proud to say they helped elect and re-elect President Barack Obama. Yet, like many other Bay Area residents who pay for their own medical insurance, they were floored last week when they opened their bills: Their policies were being replaced with pricier plans that conform to all the requirements of the new health care law. Vinson, of San Jose, will pay $1,800 more a year for an individual policy, while Waschura, of Portola Valley, will cough up almost $10,000 more for insurance for his family of four.

Next comes the string of absolutely priceless quotes from these San Francisco-area liberals:

"I was laughing at Boehner -- until the mail came today," Waschura said, referring to House Speaker John Boehner, who is leading the Republican charge to defund Obamacare.

"I really don't like the Republican tactics, but at least now I can understand why they are so pissed about this.

When you take $10,000 out of my family's pocket each year, that's otherwise disposable income or retirement savings that will not be going into our local economy."

Both Vinson and Waschura have adjusted gross incomes greater than four times the federal poverty level -- the cutoff for a tax credit.

And while both said they anticipated their rates would go up, they didn't realize they would rise so much. "Of course, I want people to have health care," Vinson said. "I just didn't realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally."
