Well, boy, calling yourself an "African" American when the so-called "African" Americans would have the lowest respect and status in any culture of society in Africa is a racial slur to real Africans who don't create an entire culture of single mothers and irresponsible men who abandon their children as a matter of cultural tradition.
When any so-called "African" American calls themselves African American, it is an insult to real Africans. The so-called "African" Americans have nothing in common with Africans.

If you don't want to be called "boy", grow up and become a responsible person... boy. Become a man.
A man doesn't abandon his children, boy.

For completeness of your argument, you need to state the fact that the "war" Saddam Hussein started when he attempted to take over all the oil fields on the Arabian peninsula never officially ended, but was only in a phase of cease-fire, and reference the 18 UN resolutions Saddam Hussein was violating.
Thank you.
The Iraq war was for Bush43 to show Bush41 he was a man. That's all it was. Just one more US war that was for nothing. No war fought since WWII by America has ever been to protect our freedom. No war since WWII has America won except Gulf 1 and that was because we had 15 other nations helping.

Uh Oh: 47 Million Food Stamp Recipients Are Having Their Benefits Cut Back On November 1st

October 22, 2013

47.6 million Americans are about to have their food stamp benefits cut, and most of them have absolutely no idea that it is about to happen. Needless to say, a lot of them are going to be very angry when they discover that they cannot buy as much food for their families anymore. The reason that this is happening is because a temporary boost to food stamp benefits that was put in during the last recession is expiring. But most of the people that are having their benefits cut will not understand this.

Image: Food stamp user.

Most of them will just be very upset that the government is “taking money away” from them. And considering the “mini-riots” that we witnessed earlier this month when the system that processes food stamp payments went down for a few hours, it is obvious that a lot of food stamp recipients can very easily be pushed over the edge. So what would happen if we have another “debt ceiling crisis” in Washington D.C. early next year and food stamp benefits are temporarily cut off completely?

Wherever “austerity” has been tried in Europe, it has resulted in protests and riots. Could a similar thing happen in this country?

NBC News is reporting that ALL food stamp recipients are going to have their food stamp benefits reduced in November. This is certainly not going to put those living in poverty in a good mood…

Millions of American families could face a sparse holiday table when food stamps benefits get reduced in November, and that could be just the start of deeper cuts to the program to feed poor families.

The modern-day food stamp plan, now called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, is scheduled to scale back benefits for all recipients on Nov. 1 because a recession-era boost in benefits is expiring.

Sadly, the truth is that food stamp benefits don’t even buy a lot of food right now. According to the USDA, the average monthly food stamp benefit is approximately $272 per household.

And now it will be even lower.

The government says that a family of four will be getting 36 dollars less per month starting on November 1st.

That may not sound like a lot to you, but for those living on the edge of poverty it can make a huge difference.

What are impoverished families supposed to do? Eat a diet that consists entirely of Ramen noodles?

Of course the real solution would be to provide good paying jobs for those families, but unfortunately our leaders continue to pursue policies that are systematically killing American jobs so that is not going to happen.

Meanwhile, those living in poverty continue to become angrier and more frustrated.

We got a glimpse of this earlier this month. The following is a brief excerpt from a recent article posted on offgridsurvival.com

Over the weekend, the debit system that allows people on government assistance to buy food, temporarily went down. The resulting chaos is a small glimpse at what I believe will happen, should the government plunge this country into some sort of economic collapse.

A couple of Walmarts in Louisiana decided to allow people to shop, even though the system was down and they had no real way of knowing how much credit people had on their cards. The resulting chaos had the store’s shelves in Springhill and Mansfield, LA stripped bare, as food stamp recipients attempted to defraud the grocery stores.

When the system went back online, the grocery store found people who had as little as .49 on their Food Stamp cards attempting to steal over $700 in food. Local police were called in as the crowd started to turn ugly, and overflowing grocery carts were left abandoned in the aisles.

Let's correct soem things you wrote.
Obama actually thought he'd be playing golf all day on the day he was going to invade an allied country and kill bin Laden. He didn't even know the mission to kill bin Laden was even happening until it was leaked to Vallerie Jarrett 40 minutes before the SEAL team landed in bin Laden's compound. At that moment, Vallerie Jarrett issued an abort order and summoned Obama from the golf course. Panetta ignored the abort order, and Vallerie Jarrett explained that the abort order she sent was the result of someone looking at a weather map for the wrong day. Obama went from the golf course straight to Vallerie Jarrett's office, not the command center.
Subsequently, the White House released 3 versions of a photo with Obama in the command center. The first photo had Obama to the right of the display coordinator and looking at the display. The second photo the White House released when it pulled the first photo off the website had Obama sitting to the right of the display coordinator and grinning at the camera like some high school prankster. The White House removed that photo and replaced it with a third version with Obama to the left of the display coordinator, and Joe Biden magically appears in the photo. Everyone else in the photo has the exact same position, posture and expression in all three versions of the photo.
Obama didn't have a clue the mission to kill bin Laden was even happening, and when Vallerie Jarrett learned it was happening, she attempted to stop it with the presidential authority.
Ignorance is bliss! So is stupidity! It frees you of your self thought &, moralresponsibility. You just happen to suffer from both ignorance &, stupidity! How blissful! You mean to tell me that you're privy to secret information that the rest of us aren't? What, you have A-1 clearance? Photos of where Obama is sitting in 3 separate photos, at 3 separate times is your evidence! Maybe Biden wasn't in the command center for the first 2 photos. Maybe Obama was sitting to the left in the first video, to the right in the second &, back on the left in the third. That sounds plausible, not impossible! You can miss me with that Valerie Jarrett stuff. You're only making yourself look all the more stupid! The world knows that, Obama continued on his scheduled good trip, in attempts to not draw attention to the upcoming events. Everything you post is conspiracy theory , speculation! Nothing at all factual! Where's your evidence for the events that you inferred apon? Don't give me any right wing blogs, full of more speculation. As for your birthwe b/s, nobody can receive their original birth certificate. It's evidence of the blind contract your parents sign at your birth with the corporation of the UNITED STATES!

Congress shut down the parts when they refused to fund them.

"A 2010 Congressional Research Service report summarized other details of the 1995-1996 government shutdowns, indicating the shutdown impacted all sectors of the economy. Health and welfare services for military veterans were curtailed; the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stopped disease surveillance; new clinical research patients were not accepted at the National Institutes of Health; and toxic waste clean-up work at 609 sites was halted. Other impacts included: the closure of 368 National Park sites resulted in the loss of some seven million visitors; 200,000 applications for passports and 20,000 to 30,000 applications for visas by foreigners went unprocessed each day; U.S. tourism and airline industries incurred millions of dollars in losses; more than 20% of federal contracts, representing $3.7 billion in spending, were affected adversely."

Closure of national parks.,

Again, you are shown to be wrong.

Oh, no. Another conspiracy nut is trying to convince everyone conspiracies are impossible.

The Democrats supported the war in Iraq because Bush lied, and they were kept too ignorant to figure that out, right?
Now, that would require one hell of a conspiracy, right?

Just 12 percent of Americans approve of Congress' job performance, a new low in 40 years of polling, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll released Tuesday.

The survey shows Congress' worst approval rating in ABC/Post polls since 1989 and in Gallup polls dating back to 1974, with 85 percent of Americans disapproving of the legislative branch in the wake of the government shutdown.

The poll also found that for the first time since it began tracking the figure 24 years ago, more Americans disapprove of their own representatives. Traditionally Americans disapprove more of Congress as a whole, but the latest survey also found representatives underwater with 47 percent disapproval while just 43 percent approved of their performance.

Psychological projection:

Psychological projection was conceptualized by Sigmund Freud in the 1890s as a defense mechanism in which a person unconsciously rejects his or her own unacceptable attributes by ascribing them to objects or persons in the outside world. For example, a person who is rude may accuse other people of being rude.

13 million are on welfare and nearly 47 million on food stamps. That 34 million difference are those that are called the working poor. They have jobs but those jobs do not pay enough to make a living. It's the rich CEOs like the Walton's of WalMart that are the true takers, not the employees.

How about this for an answer.
Because Obama's clown act fucked it up, get rid of that clown act. They are obviously incompetent.
Then, do it all over again. This time, don't do something incredibly stupid like attempting to remove copyright notices from the code and set off all the software bombs.
All that money we gave Obama to write the software he stole (when you violate the copyright agreement, you steal the software) was wasted. To fix it, we have to pay for Obama's fuckup, and then pay to fix it.
Get the code again and start over. That's the only solution.
And, get rid of those pathological liars in the White House. They are the reason the United States has less credibility in the world than Zimbabwe. This is just one more example of why the United States is the laughing stock of the world since Obama took office.
Al bundy would actually make a better president than Obama. He realizes how stupid he is after his plan blows up in his face. Obama doesn't have a clue how stupid he is. Even after this, he still thinks he's smart. You can't get more stupid than that.
If you want to see what the rest of the world is laughing at, look in the mirror. Your phony conspirisies, threats to not pay debts congress approved, your obstruction to Obamacare every step of the way and then whine that it doesn't work, the teabagger clown show of no solution, just chest beating politicians; all this is why you don't matter any more.

If you bother to actually look into the issue, this is what you'll discover, just like everyone else who actually looked into the issue discovered.
To look into any issue, you have to make a commitment to not be ignorant. Obama may take your Democrat voter registration card away from you if you do this.

Here is the problem with the ObamaKare website:

DataTables is free, open source software that you can download and use for whatever purpose you wish, on any and as many sites you want. It is free for you to use! DataTables is available under two licenses: GPL v2 license or a BSD (3-point) license, with which you must comply (to do this, basically keep the copyright notices in the software).

For some reason, this clown act Obama has decided to eliminate the copyright notices from the software, setting off software bombs.

Every problem with the website was caused by Obama's "programmers" violating the copyright agreement and removing the copyright notices from the code... for some reason.
Now, why would anyone use free software, then change the code to make it appear as if they weren't using that software?

This is just part of being a pathological liar. It was important to them for ignorant people to think they are smart enough to write the code for the ObamaKare website.
The truth is, this is just another case where Al Bundy could be our president. His plan A blows up in his face, and he doesn't have a plan B.

This is not only the most incompetent administration in the history of this country, it is probably the most incompetent administration of any country in the history of civilization.

So, how much more money will it cost us to fix Barack Bundy's stupidity?
And, when will you dupes wake up?
