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

Detroit is bankrupt because there is nobody and no assets left to tax. Without emergency action, the city could not pay salaries for current employees, let alone ridiculous benefits for retirees.
Exactly and cutting retiree health benefits has absolutely nothing at all to do with the Affordable Care Act. We've seen this coming since the Bush administration passed a regulation allowing employers to reduce or eliminate health benefits for retirees and their spouses when they turn 65 and become eligible for Medicare. The shoe has dropped.

WASHINGTON — President Obama said Thursday there have been "no winners" in the government shutdown dispute, and lawmakers will have to work hard to regain the trust of Americans.
"The American people are completely fed up with Washington," Obama said during remarks at the White House.
Repeatedly criticizing Congress over the just-ended shutdown and a near-default, Obama said: "At a moment when our economic recovery demands more jobs, more momentum, we've got yet another self-inflicted crisis that set our economy back."
The president said Congress can recover by passing three agenda items: a long-tern budget plan that cuts spending but preserves essential programs, a new farm bill, and a bill to fix a "broken" immigration system.
"We can get them done by the end of the year if our focus is on the American people," Obama said.
Obama spoke hours after signing a bill that ended that ended the 16-day government partial shutdown and extended the government's borrowing authority, averting a potential default on some of the nation's debts.
The measures are temporary, creating the possibility of renewed conflict in the months ahead.
The new bill funds the government through Jan. 15. The debt ceiling borrowing authority expires Feb. 7, though the Treasury Department could use special accounting measures to extend it for a month or so.
In his brief speech, Obama bashed Congress by saying "these last few weeks have inflicted completely unnecessary damage on our economy" and "there was no economic rationale for all of this."
The budget impasse has also hurt U.S. credibility overseas, Obama said, encouraging enemies, emboldening competitors and depressing friends across the globe.
"The good news is we'll bounce back from this," Obama said. "We always do."
Politics in Washington "has to change," Obama said. "All of us need to stop focusing on the lobbyists, and the bloggers, and the talking heads on radio and the professional activists who profit from conflict."
He did not specifically cite his Republican opponents in Congress, but did criticize "the one side" that practiced "brinkmanship" in recent weeks.John 8:44 &#9658;
Parallel Verses
New International Version
You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
New Living Translation
For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies.
English Standard Version
You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
New American Standard Bible
"You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
King James Bible
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Holman Christian Standard Bible
You are of your father the Devil, and you want to carry out your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning and has not stood in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he tells a lie, he speaks from his own nature, because he is a liar and the father of liars.

That's the person who should be overseeing health care.
The Surgeon General more than likely has already been brainwashed by the politically correct police.

He/She will just think it's their job to tell us what's best for us and impose punitive damages if we disobey.

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.
Is that the same Canada that has to report wait times for surgery the way we report the weather? Or where those with money circumvent the "free" healthcare and come to the US for the best treatments?

You know if you would stop typing no one would know you are a dumbass.
.,
In its latest Budget and Economic Update, the CBO forecasts that federal revenue will top $2.7 trillion in 2013, slightly higher than the $2.6 trillion the government collected in 2007, when the last recession officially began.
In fact, the $2.7 trillion in revenue will be the most money the federal government has collected in history.
Government revenues had fallen by nearly $500 billion during the recession to $2.1 trillion in 2009, contributing to the $1.5 trillion deficit that year. However, federal revenues have been recovering since the recession ended in June 2009, and the CBO now projects that they will slightly eclipse their pre-recession peak.

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.

Most people probably didn't read that far to get the point of your post.

But it was an excellent metaphor of dems willing to split the baby in half just so the other mother wouldn't get it and the repubs saving the baby even if they have to let the fake mother have it.

The baby, of course, representing the country.

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!"

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?
I think those greedy, liberal college professors should give up their high salaries and short work weeks in the name of "fairness." Too many can't afford the high cost of a college education.

But in the name of "fairness," we could start with Moochelle. The Obama's extravagant ski vacations and safaris should be divided and made equal for all. And put their kids in a public school.

The objection to Obamacare isn't about health care either. It's about bringing down Obama. If it wasn't this it'd be something else.

Monday's military photo-op involving a low-flying airliner over New York City was:
A huge mistake. The military should have cleared it with NYC officials first.
Just a misunderstanding. I'm relieved to find out it wasn't a terrorist attack.

Breaking News update: President Barack Obama says it was a mistake for one of his official airplanes to be sent zooming past the New York City skyline for a publicity photo shoot.

Obama said Tuesday: "It was a mistake, as was stated ... and it will not happen again."

Obama commented after reporters asked about the flight as he prepared to meet with FBI Director Robert Mueller at agency headquarters.

On Monday, one of the Boeing 747s used by Obama and an F-16 jet circled the Statue of Liberty at the start of the work day, startling workers in lower Manhattan who feared a nightmarish replay of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

The flight was carried out by the Defense Department. The director of the White House military office has apologized for the incident.

Original story below. Check back for more.

Just plane dumb.

A perfect storm of idiocy led to a frightening 9/11 flashback for thousands of New Yorkers Monday when a jumbo jet and an F-16 fighter jet buzzed lower Manhattan without warning.

A "furious" Mayor Bloomberg denounced the dunces who dreamed up the stunt - and the NYPD officials and bureaucrats who never told him about it.

By day's end, an obscure City Hall deputy named Marc Mugnos, who makes $60,000 a year, was taking the fall for not telling Bloomberg that the low-flying planes were coming. He was reprimanded.

But there was plenty of blame to go around.

Louis Caldera, the director of the White House military office who sent Air Force One and the fighter jet on an "aerial photo mission," got slammed by an angry President Obama.

"I approved a mission over New York," Caldera said in a hastily prepared statement. "I apologize and take responsibility for any distress that flight caused."

Obama was not on the flight.

Sources said the chief reason for the panic-inducing flight was to create souvenir pictures of Air Force One flying over the Statue of Liberty to be given out - like a presidential tie clip - to family, friends or supporters.

Air Force One has done flyovers of historic sites and monuments like Mount Rushmore and the Golden Gate Bridge for PR glam shots - at taxpayer expense.

But the politically correct pick and chose. They advocate unhealthy lifestyles with promiscuity as a choice--that we should subsidize. Nor will they speak against someone having 10 kids by different daddies while on welfare.
