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

<quoted text> Well I'm not a republican but I have an answer. Get rid of most of these taxes, cut the size of government till you don't have to borrow money to run it, and then cut it some more. Teach the people, all people, to be self reliant and not depend on government. Why do you libtards think the government is the only answer. My guess is 98% of the people of this country could take care of themselves if the government got out of the way. The first move would be get rid of the income tax, medicare tax, SSI tax. But NOOOOOO we can't have people not needing the federal government. Your democrat's tax and spend policies are what is wrong with this country.
So you would have a nation that is a Repub dreamland? No government and no taxes. There are nations like that. They are referred to as 3rd world countries. How is it that America built all the infrastructure in the 1950s and 1960s when the tax rate on the top was 3 times higher than it is now? How was it that a middle class was formed in America if the top had no money because of taxes? Trickle Down Economics destroyed the middle class.

Have to do it. Just to "p" off my little judge-it.

Pelosi had the same Intel as Bush, Cheney, the UN and the CIA.

For her to even suggest Democrats were purposely given different information proves how dumb she must be for being duped in light of the Intel everyone on the planet had - or liberals for believing her.

How sad that you do.
Just don't talk about them respecting women just because they don't care if women kill their unborn.
That'd be even more sad.
DemoKKKrats think that if a politician voices support for causes that supposedly favor women, it doesn't matter how much he degrades individual women on a personal level.

<quoted text>As usual, you need to work on your definition of terms. SSI is not considered welfare in the rating you use, and it was centered on the amount of extended benefits being paid to the unemployed after Bush's Depression. People like Batty Loo, who've only worked part-time at best, withdrew personal pension funds and spent them (if she is to be believed) is now "retiring" at sixty-two to live the rest of her useless existence on funds she hasn't put in. That's those T-P "Morans" in a nutshell: out there with their misspelled signs demanding that Obammy keep government out of their Medicare. lol
States receiving the most federal funding per tax dollar paid:
1. New Mexico:$2.63
2. West Virginia:$2.57
3. Mississippi:$2.47
4. District of Colombia:$2.41
5. Hawaii:$2.38
6. Alabama:$2.03
7. Alaska:$1.93
8. Montana:$1.92
9. South Carolina:$1.92
10. Maine:$1.78
New Mexico - Bill Richardson, Tom Udall, Martin Heinrich (Ds)
West Virginia - Robert Byrd, Jay Rockefeller, Joe Manchin (Ds)
Mississippi - well, it's Mississippi. Must be a lot of Great Society money going there, don't you think?
District of Columbia - give us a break. There are no Republicans there.
Hawaii - I don't think there are Republicans living in Hawaii, either.
Alabama -(same as Mississippi)
Alaska - hmmmmmmm. One wonders.
Montana - Indian reservations and farm subsidies?
South Carolina - interesting. Reparations for illegally bringing the first confederate state back into the union?
Maine - August King (I socialist, caucuses with Democrats, they have to buy his association I would guess)
The bottom line is, this list of the biggest leeches per capita is dominated by Democrats.

The only distinction the American Stinker makes is in the political realm. They claim the politics are more 'complicated'. But they don't question the numbers.
They did not dispute the economic numbers at all, which are Gov't numbers.
You lose, but nice try, Gunner.
This is so typical of your diversionary tactics from the past.
You post a link that makes you a liar, hoping nobody will actually look into it. How typical of a crooked cop.
I hope you've been enjoying Nobraina's attacks on the fascist police.
Let's see in a couple years how the numbers change. For example LA is high for disaster relief. NJ will be reduced as a giver due to Hurricane Sandy. States like CA,MI, etc who are scrounging for Fed dollars will rise.

I continue to discredit those who claim that it is mooching from states such as NY to pay for mutually beneficial programs such as military bases, Superfund disposal sites, national parks, etc

That pushes the level to absurd.

An educated population would recognize the Democrats as medieval Machiavellian. Democrats don't even know who Machiavelli is, or what his significance is to governmental philosophy. They are so ignorant they don't know what they promote is right out of Machiavelli's letters that were collected and comprise what is known as "The Prince".
What the Democrats are doing is what Machiavelli described as the "first princedom", the initial organization of a totalitarian governmental structure over newly acquired peasantry.
At the time of the founding fathers, these clowns would have been recognized immediately and laughed out of the room. That is the difference between the education level of the people who founded this country, and the people who are running it today. These clowns today would be the laughingstock in a room with any group of educated people 250 years ago.
That is probably why the United States is the laughing stock of the world today. The world today isn't as ignorant as the Democrats need them to be.... neither was the American population 50 years ago, so they fixed that. Look at us today.
Blah, Blah , Blah,,, Left up to you America would look just like China or some African nation. You would be happy to see everyone working for a dollar per day. The ONLY reason you sit in your high tower looking down upon all the peasants is because the oil companies can charge any amount they wish to and everyone must pay it. If all industry was like yours than everyone might have your same outlook.

Their sex lives or preferences have nothing to do with womens rights. How do you know Monica didn't like cigar sex? Whose business is it anyway? You'd be surprised how many men take pictures of their penises and send them to people. Did you read about that new cop in SC who sent pictures of his penis to a 13 year old in Iowa? It's not about killing the unborn; it's about the right of women over their own bodies.
I believe in sexual freedom; what people do is their own business.
I agree that Anthony Weiner, John Edwards and Bill Clinton are scoundrels. I'm so grateful that President Obama didn't pick John Edwards for VP! Who did they hurt Carol? They hurt their wives and children and their reputations. Men are weird, especially powerful ones.
However, none of the above ever proposed forcing women to have vaginal probes; forcing women to have rapists babies; giving visitation rights to rapists; charging women who had an abortion with a felony tampering with evidence if she aborted the rapists baby; force women to submit to testing of a miscarriage to prove it wasn't self induced.
You evangelical republicans are like the Taliban; you views are more akin to Sharia law than anyone elses. Funny you can't see that.
The fact you defend the most powerful married man in the world with a daughter nearly the same age as his young subordinate sex toy by asking if the sex toy enjoyed being used as such says everything, Lily.

Powerful men have significant power over vulnerable women. Does that mean it's okay for them to take advantage of that fact?

Nevermind thinking men who send pictures of their penises to women is a perfectly normal thing to do.

How is delaying the individual mandate for a year "responsible"?
Health insurance companies have expended a great deal of capital setting up their plans and getting their computer systems in sync with the exchange. CMS has already committed millions on the system over five - ten years. Contracts have been signed. The "responsible" thing to do is to go forward. What's fair to working families is to have the opportunity relax knowing that they won't go bankrupt due to a health insurance emergency. What isn't fair is allowing a handful of self-righteous politicians hold America for ransom.
If America wanted ObamaKKKare, an individual mandate would be unnecessary...its only purpose is to blackmail young, healthy people into subsidizing medical care for the sick....

That's what the DC police counted.

And, they counted 26 muslims that showed up for the Million Muslim March.

Now, why did only 26 million muslims show up for the Million Muslim March? Maybe because a million bikers were coming?

1.2 million, to quote the DC police.

Might as well be me.
I regard it totally childish to have a state whining about funding things that are mutually beneficial to them such as...

-military bases
-Superfund sites
-national parks
-supplementing farmers who grows crops that are used by the military, schools, Indian food supplements, foreign aide etc.

None of this is MOOCHING

This whole myth has disappeared except for some diehard blogs and message boards because logic was missing from its' claims.

Now here is breakdown of states who have the most people on welfare-
1 California
2. Maine
3. Tennessee
4. Massachusetts
5. Vermont
6. District of Columbia
7. New York
8. Minnesota

A woman with an outstanding warrant for her arrest is currently serving as an Obamacare “navigator” in Lawrence, Kansas.

Rosilyn Wells — the Director of Outreach and Enrollment for the Heartland Community Health-care Center (HCHC)– is “the only full-time Affordable Care Act navigator in Lawrence,” according to the Lawrence Journal-World.

Wells was certified as an Obamacare navigator despite her financial history, which includes a bankruptcy in 2003, a 2007 civil charge from a local check cashing business called Midwest Checkrite for writing a bad check, being more than $1700 behind on her state tax bill, and having an outstanding arrest warrant in nearby Shawnee County.

Poll: New High For Disapproval Of GOP's Handling Of Budget Talks

Republicans continue to absorb the bulk of the blame for the protracted budget impasse, with a poll released Monday showing public disapproval of the GOP's handling of the crisis reaching an apex.

The latest ABC News/Washington Post poll found 74 percent of Americans disapproving of how congressional Republicans are handling the budget negotiations, up from 63 percent two weeks ago. Fifty-four percent said they "strongly" disapprove of the Republicans while 20 percent said they "somewhat" disapprove. Only 21 percent said they approve of the way Republicans have handled the talks.

The poll found Republicans receiving far more blame than the other parties in the negotiations. Fifty-three percent said they disapprove of how President Barack Obama has handled the negotiations while 61 percent said they disapprove of Democrats in Congress.
