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

Sweet. Remember when we were losing 900,000 a week during the Bush years. No one said it's on fire, but adding is better than losing. With all the negative press(Fox) and half the country(rightwingers) wanting the U.S. to fail it's amazing 1 job was created.

<quoted text>I like stupid people like you-really I do. Although two pharmaceutical companies, Merck and Parke-Davis, immediately recalled their polio vaccine, the NIH did not follow suit. "By 1960, the Salk injectable polio vaccine (IPV) had been administered to about 98 million American children and adults ... and it was estimated that 10% to 30% of the vaccines contained live SV40.... The tainted vaccines continued to be administered until 1963," said Michael Horwin in an article originally published in Albany Law Journal of Science & Technology.
See Dumbo it was not corrected. I guess the CDC lied according to you.
The SV40 wasn't discovered until 1960. So, how did you expect the vaccines to be recalled prior to that date?

US & European studies show no correlation between the vaccines & cancer.

The SV40 was only found in the injectable version. The oral version developed in the early 60's did not. The oral version became widely used over the injectable.

If you like I will even get my Al Gore poster out & display it on my window. So give it your best shot tea bagger. You are a disgrace to American culture, brain washed by a conservative movement that has lost its way with nothing to offer except insults using BS throw away lines like "handouts", "welfare" & "commies". To defend what ??? the lifestyle of the 4%'ers ? of which you sure as hell are not one of. If you think you are defending your lifestyle, then all those jobs & low paid service work did not disappear because of Welfare. They leaked offshore in the millions supercharged from Reagan's time on by "cutting the red tape" on regulations to continually shrink from 74% of the mass population who owned America's wealth in the 60's down to the 4% owning 76% of all the wealth of America as of today. The fact that you think it's handouts as the cause is delusional as this so called fictional small government crap. It's your kind that are a bigger threat to America than Bin Laden ever was. Thankfully there are not enough of you these days to go around and in a decade or so the whole lot of your kind will be all gone.

Expendable People: Economics, a “Murderous Science”
The English who settled America brought English culture with them. The colonies were nothing but little Englands. When the colonists revolted, they were merely trying to get free of the tyrannical English monarchy, not trying to change the culture. They were perfectly happy with the English way of life. They carried on its practices and adopted the English system of common law.

That sixteenth century culture is alive and well in America today and is why America is in many respects a backward nation. Americans are living 500 years behind the times.

One would like to believe that human institutions exist to enhance the lives of people, but there is very little evidence to support that view. If enhancing the lives of people is not the purpose of human institutions, what is? The American Constitution lists six goals the founders expected the nation to accomplish:

We the People of the United States, in Order to (1) form a more perfect Union,(2) establish Justice,(3) insure domestic Tranquility,(4) provide for the common defence,(5) promote the general Welfare, and (6) secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Unfortunately, no American government has ever tried to govern in a way that seeks to attain these goals. So the American government is either an unconstitutional, failed state or else the framers of the Constitution must be thought of as having engaged in unrealistic political propaganda. At any rate, the American government is not what the Constitution makes it out to be. The question is why? The answer is the stupid political economy!

The English who settled America brought English culture with them. The colonies were nothing but little Englands. When the colonists revolted, they were merely trying to get free of the tyrannical English monarchy, not trying to change the culture. They were perfectly happy with the English way of strife. They carried on its practices and adopted the English system of common law.

That sixteenth century culture is alive and well in America today and is why America is in many respects a backward nation. Americans are living 500 years behind the times.

The English were engaged in economic activities for hundreds of years before Adam Smith published his An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nation; all he did was provide English merchants with a rationalization for what they had always done and wanted to do more of. Laissez-faire (let [them] do), to them, meant the ability to engage in economic practices without being subjected to governmental restrictions and tariffs. Then, like today, merchants wanted the freedom to profiteer by buying cheap and selling dear. Merchants, then or now, have had little interest in abstruse economic theory unless its models promise greater profit.

But buying cheap and selling dear applies to labor as well as materials, and the classical economists provide a rationalization for that maxim too. The subsistence theory of wages, advanced by classical economists, holds that the market price of labour always tends toward the minimum required for subsistence (that is, for basic needs such as food and shelter). Even Alfred Marshall, America’s first modern economist, was of the opinion that wages in the long run would tend to equal maintenance and reproduction costs. So when the Republican party seeks to eliminate regulations and keep the minimum wage low, they are acting just like sixteenth century English merchants and their boot-licking economists. Merchants become sheep dogs that herd human sheep, and our economists think nothing of it. They have adopted the British way of strife totally.

Got news for you, Big Population = Big Government that's how it works and no matter how many times you mill over it. That will never change, from dept of transport, aviation, health, education, trade, defence, policing, immigration, border security the list goes on and on. This Cinderella world you tea baggers live in DOES NOT EXIST except in the days of the Wild West. Then you took care of your own garbage, protected the fence line & shot anyone who tried to take from you. It's not coming back, SO GET OVER IT!
Got news for YOU. European countries aren't that big and they already tried the social medicine route. They're doing a U-turn at the end of a dead end street.

Do you know about an unknown population explosion in the United States since the 1990s? Because Clinton, after successfully following the lead of his Republican Congress, even announced that the "era of big government is over". And we were doing just fine then. All of us.

Lowering the costs of health care by competition in the free market and tort reform and other common sense, cost-free solutions was the solution.

This administration simply did not want a good crisis to go to waste so they could fundamentally transform this nation.

Obamacare rollout without a doubt was deliberately design to Fail!! They knew prior to the rollout the system wasn’t Ready, they knew that millions would lose their Health Care Coverage, and they knew insurance companies could not compete with ACA Health Care Plans leaving millions of Americans in Limbo or uninsured leading to one option… Single Payer!!

Obama Schemes to Cut Social Security

President Obama has “enabled” the assault on Social Security and other entitlement programs since his first days in office, said independent journalist Arun Gupta, a co-founder of the Occupied Wall Street Journal. The president has long sought an austerity “Grand Bargain” with Republicans, but has been stymied by GOP reluctance to cut a deal.“The U.S. has become so dysfunctional, in terms of its political system,” said Gupta,“it seems the most you can hope for is gridlock.”

“Organize!” says Danny Glover

Actor and political activist Danny Glover called for a “reinvigoration of the idea of democracy.” Speaking at a fundraiser for Benton Harbor, Michigan’s Black Autonomy Network Community Organization (BANCO), the TransAfrica Forum chairman said:“It is important that people are active in the process. We need to organize!”

Worst year for jobs since '45
Annual loss biggest since end of World War II. Unemployment rate rises to 7.2%.

By David Goldman, CNNMoney.com staff writer
Last Updated: January 9, 2009: 12:11 PM ET

NEW YORK ( CNNMoney.com )-- The hemorrhaging of American jobs accelerated at a record pace at the end of 2008, bringing the year's total job losses to 2.6 million or the highest level in more than six decades.

A sobering U.S. Labor Department jobs report Friday showed the economy lost 524,000 jobs in December and 1.9 million in the year's final four months, after the credit crisis began in September.

Gee I wonder what was about to happen in the last quarter of 2008?
