Who needs a link? You can see him walk off the podium with reporters shouting questions 99.9% of the time.
The other 0.1% is when reporters and Americans are "treated" to a real press conference when he bloviates after answering two or three questions from his adoring lapdogs before time is up.
Of course, no one asks him any hard questions because they might make him mad and he won't grace them with his presence anymore.
You got on my copy & pasting skills, even called me out when I told you about the video of the Democrat Senator , exposing the Republican Speaker, on the house floor for, Republicans changing house rule 22;4 so that, nobody besides the Majority Leader of the house could bring up a privileged vote to immediately reopen the gov't. Then you turn around &, pull this stunt. Hypocrisy in it's truest form, by another novist minded righty. What you got to say about that, since you aren't into answering questions in which you have no answer for!

<quoted text> Heard this on the radio this morning as I was taking the girls to school. The said something to the effect that what we just had wasn't a debt crisis. He said the real debt crisis will happen when nobody will loan us money. We are on our way there now.
Looking in the direction we are headed, there will be a time coming soon when there won't be a country in the world stupid enough to loan this United States any money.
However, there are cases in history when a benefactor country "loaned" money to another country, and then the country being given government welfare had to send its army to fight wars they would otherwise not have been involved in.
Today, the Armed Forces of the United States is, as we speak, training Al Qaeda terrorists on a US military base in Jordan. I wonder if that is related to the fact that soon there won't be any country in the world stupid enough to give money to the United States.
Come to think of it, there was a(nother) insane unconstitutional proposal from this administration to give federal land to China in exchange for a reduction of the debt they hold. It was right before the idiots in the White House floated their trillion dollar coin to fund a government outside the authority of Congress to see if that would fly.
It appears the White House is desperate to get money from anywhere. I'm thinking they're not such morons that they can't see the obvious collapse coming.

With a single payer healthcare system administered by the government and paid for through taxation, that is not attached to employment; insurance companies would be eliminated; the profit making of insurance companies would be eliminated. The Government negotiates the prices of the medications on behalf of the people; prices for surgeries are the same across the board.
There will be no copays, no deductibles, no denial for pre existing conditions. Yes, that is a perfect system, like in Canada.
But where would we go when we need real medical care like Canadians come here for?

No, I don't. I know how insurance works; I don't know why you don't, or refuse to try to understand it.
Nevertheless, you may be making some progress in that you now know that if your husband loses his health insurance; that you can now buy a policy even with pre existing conditions; and keep your daughter on it until age 26. Without Obamacare; you would not be insurable.

Perfect? You obviously don't know the meaning of the word unless you're claiming Canada's HC system isn't flawed.

Shouldn't the greedy profit in the education and food industries also be eliminated? They are both "rights" after all, aren't they?

You also forgot to mention what happens to the millions of people currently employed in the industry?

It's your claim.
For some reason, Obama's lawyers will say and do anything to avoid having to submit that obviously fraudulent "birth certificate" being shown on the White House website in any case. Now, why would they do that?
Perhaps because they are aware of the fact that knowingly submitting fraudulent evidence will get you bent over in a prison shower?
How about doing what the so-called "birfers" want and submit that document as proof of Obama's eligibility.
If that document is proven legitimate, this case will disappear faster than a male page off Barney Frank's New York hotel balcony.

And with the government shut down courtesy of the reich wing nuts, people can see what cons 'stand' for.
I don't see the problems of the non cons being anywhere near as bad as what can happen to you idiots. Caving in was the first step in that process some of your nuts can now understand... which is why the funding bill passed the House.
And with no effective leader, the House is effective a listless, neutered, loose confederation of self appointed anarchists.
Be proud. You work hard to attain this.

Show me the government shutdown.

It was all a hoax perpetrated by the Democrats. There was no government shut down.

What do you mean they already get free education, free food (some at the same time) housing, cable, internet, heat, A/C, etc... The poor people in this country are still in the top 1% of the most wealthiest in the world. Oh and a phone.

Apparently, a lot more than you do.
The IRS managing and overseeing our health care is not their job for one thing.
Providing affordable insurance and lowering the costs should have been the goal. It doesn't take the government or the IRS to achieve that goal. It just takes some common sense.
But you like being controlled so you don't have any.
It seems we're already paying for a medical branch of government before ObamaKare.
Can anyone tell me what the Surgeon General does for a living?
That's the person who should be overseeing health care.

Just as long as he doesn't fly AF1 over the tops of the skyscrapers in New York again to get a realistic photo op.

Scared the living **** out of New Yorkers.

But that's how this president rolls. Act first...think second. He miraculously won the presidency and that's all that matters.

Maybe he and Michelle should have another "date night" in downtown New York? Brilliant idea that was, wasn't it?

He might as well have had a town crier in the streets announcing, "The King has his Lady have arrived to grace the King's realm of New York!" And then, "So stop whining about the traffic jams and backups and be grateful he has graced his presence among you!" And for added emphasis then said, "Sheesh!"

Don't worry, I stopped reading after the first totally fcked up "fact": the Dems took over the House (the pursestrings) in January, 2007 you fckin' moron. Can't you get anything right?
And in January, 2007, please tell us what the total debt and annual deficit was.
Here's where that information is at, moron:

http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/fed_spend...

You'll find the total debt was 8.5 trillion.
The deficit was 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion.

Tell us what the Democrats did to the debt and deficit since.
Did you say the Democrats increased the deficit ONE THOUSAND PERCENT?
Did you say the Democrats DOUBLED the debt?

Did you say you're an idiot?

15 Solomon awoke, and behold, it was a dream. He came to Jerusalem, stood before the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings, and made a feast for all his servants.

16 Then two women who had become mothers out of wedlock came and stood before the king.

17 And one woman said, O my lord, I and this woman dwell in one house; and I was delivered of a child with her in the house.

18 And the third day after I was delivered, this woman also was delivered. And we were together; no stranger was with us, just we two in the house.

19 And this woman’s child died in the night because she lay on him.

20 And she arose at midnight and took my son from beside me while your handmaid slept and laid him in her bosom and laid her dead child in my bosom.

21 And when I rose to nurse my child, behold, he was dead. But when I had considered him in the morning, behold, it was not the son I had borne.

22 But the other woman said, No! But the living one is my son, and the dead one is your son! And this one said, No! But the dead son is your son, and the living is my son. Thus they spoke before the king.

23 The king said, One says, This is my son that is alive and yours is the dead one. The other woman says, No! But your son is the dead one and mine is the living one.

24 And the king said, Bring me a sword. And they brought a sword to the king.

25 And the king said, Divide the living child in two and give half to the one and half to the other.

26 Then the mother of the living child said to the king, for she yearned over her son, O my lord, give her the living baby, and by no means slay him. But the other said, Let him not be mine or yours, but divide him.

27 Then the king said, Give her [who pleads for his life] the living baby, and by no means slay him. She is the child’s mother.

28 And all Israel heard of the judgment which the king had made, and they stood in awe of him, for they saw that the wisdom of God was in him to do justice.
