Barack Obama, our next President

He had only being president five years and gas is still $4.00 as he promised.
Really, I just got gas the other day and paid $2.92 a gallon. Just think if the Republicans would have paid as much attention to Obama's jobs bill as they did AHC, we would have been much better off now.

85% of all people have health insurance.
It shows how devastating medical conditions can be on one's financial well being.
Low income uninsured likely don't file bankruptcy as thy have nothing to lose.
That number is skewed__take away those on MediCare and Medicaid and the 85% drops dramatically and worse, many have no intention of becoming insured.

LOS ANGELES – Last week, MSNBC President Phil Griffin questioned the ratings jump that Megyn Kelly’s new prime-time Fox News show,“The Kelly File,” experienced between its premiere Monday and its second show on Tuesday, calling the increase “impossible” and demanding someone investigate the figures.
“Tuesday–you guys should be doing some investigations,” Griffin told media news site MediaBistro.com .“I have never seen it in all my years of cable, same overnight, same everything, and they doubled their ratings in a day? It is impossible.”
Apparently not. The Daily News looked into Griffin’s allegation and reported that a Nielsen investigation confirmed the numbers were indeed accurate.
"The Kelly File" jumped 116 percent in the key 25-54 demographic to 623K viewers, beating MSNBC’s "The Rachel Maddow Show." Kelly's show also grew 34 percent in total viewers, rising to almost 2.8 million.
“The notion that [the increase] merited an ‘investigation’ is frankly comical and an indication of the rampant Fox paranoia which has overtaken their competitors,” media critic John Ziegler told FOX411.“Only an MSNBC executive could possibly look at Megyn Kelly and Rachel Maddow and say,‘There is no way that Americans possibly strongly prefer the former to the latter!’”

Jesus Christ Was Not A Pacifist

He said to them,'But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don't have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one'" (Luke 22:36).

"Then Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it and struck the high priest's servant, cutting off his right ear. Jesus commanded Peter,'Put your sword away! Shall I not drink the cup the Father has given me?'" (John 18:10-11).

Notice that Jesus allowed Peter to have the sword both before and after this incident. The problem was not that defending someone is wrong; the problem was that it was inappropriate at this time since Jesus came to die for the sins of His people (Mark 10:45).

3 To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2 a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3 a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5 a time to cast away stones,
and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 a time to get, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7 a time to rend, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8 a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time of war, and a time of peace.

Before Obamacare, people who were sick often found themselves without health-care because they didn't have the ability to secure coverage at an affordable price. That is...if insurers didn't reject them altogether.
Employer-based plans are "community rated" - everyone who is covered by the same plan is charged more or less the same price. The high costs of caring for obese workers, for instance, is balanced by the low costs associated with healthy co-workers.
Why do you feel that isn't fair in the exchanges?
Pay for the fat people- a disease that is self inflicted. NO THANK-YOU.

70% of Americans on at a least one pharma. The beginning of the end.
And now the corrupt O'bama FDA: FDA panels bought by Big Pharma

The FDA and its "experts" don't give a hoot about how well a drug works or how safe it is -- all they REALLY care about is pleasing their Big Pharma bosses so the money, booze and vacations keep flowing.

This isn't some paranoid conspiracy theory. Newly uncovered emails show once and for all that this is EXACTLY how the agency and its "expert panels" operate.

The FDA panel in charge of painkillers has been holding private -- aka SECRET -- meetings in fancy hotels at least once a year, every year, for the past decade... and they didn't meet alone, or with the best and greatest independent medical minds.

No, they partied with their drug industry pals, who PAID up to $35,000 a pop to "collaborate" with them on how to ram their drugs through the approvals process, according to the emails.

Yes, that's what the FDA actually has the nerve to call this: "collaboration."

You and I would call it PAYOLA, because that's what it is -- and the results speak for themselves: After these meetings, Big Pharma hacks were allowed to co-author papers on the "consensus" they bought in these secret meetings.

One example of that "consensus" is that the FDA now allows Big Pharma to pre-select patients for painkiller studies based on who's most likely to respond to the treatment.

The drug industry calls this "enriched enrollment," but scientists -- even objective mainstream scientists -- call this "stacking the deck" and "cheating."

And at the FDA, it's called "business as usual" -- and that's not the only example of the unholy matrimony between the agency and the industry it's supposed to regulate.

Two FDA "experts" who sat on the painkiller panels later went on to big-money jobs as Big Pharma consultants -- and if that's not a classic example of "you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours," I don't know what is.

Bottom line here is that the decisions made by these bought-and-paid-for bureaucrats affect you and your family with every drug approval and every health recommendation, and that's why you can't trust a single word you hear from the alphabet soup in Washington.

Rep. Darrell Issa (Calif.) detected "a policy of leading from behind, of indecision” in Syria. Sen. Ted Cruz (Tex.) said Obama's "strategy of leading from behind meant [Moammar] Qaddafi's weapons stockpiles went unsecured.”...

But the last use of the phrase I could find in the Congressional Record was on Oct. 2, at the start of the shutdown, when Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said Obama had been "once again attempting to lead from behind in a crisis."

They aren't saying that now.

Obama got out in front of the shutdown and debt-ceiling standoff. He took a firm position — no negotiating — and he made his case to the country vigorously and repeatedly. Republicans miscalculated, assuming he would again give in. The result was the sort of decisive victory rarely seen in Washington skirmishes.

...much can happen between now and the midterm elections next year, when Republicans hope to hold the House and gain the Senate — and Democrats intend to hold the Senate and recover the House.

Each respective goal is equally possible depending on the same single significant determinant: whether Ted Cruz stops talking.

While that thought settles in, we pause to note that, right now, the idea that Republicans could convince anyone that they should be allowed to deliver milk, much less hold the nation’s purse strings, seems remote. But things do change quickly around here. With the debt crisis postponed and the government up and running again — faith in the efficiency of which underscores the direness of our political straits — most Americans will settle into the season’s serial holiday distractions and move right along.

There is not one single thread of real evidence that he ever existed..NONE. Why must all religions depend on fear and a reward, and why would God have a gender or nationality? There is no such animal, and only the weak minded could possible believe in a mythical sky god.

What lies ahead is the GOP’s internal struggle to determine which wing of the party prevails. And which wing prevails likely will determine the balance of power come 2014. Suffice to say, if Cruz’s voice drowns out the so-called establishment voices, Republicans may as well start investing in camels. The desert awaits.

Oh my god, you really do think Obama the Socialist is your God.

You idiot, Obama's record in jobs is abysmal at best. He's had 5 years now and it's still at historical highs.

If you look at a graph, it's easily apparent this is the slowest economic/unemployment recovery on record.

Gas prices are also have been at record highs during this Jive-Ass punks presidency:
