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

The analogy of 'that dog won't hunt' is hopeless flawed unless you can complete dog is to hunt as hunt is to dog as being logical.

Pretty much the same nonsense as your analogy.

"John Galt"
Now you are being dishonest. I am Roman Catholic and do not apologize for that fact. But I challenge you to bring up a post where I support abortion/murder or gay marriage. Just one. I have better things to do. You are wrong again when you say I do not recognize the Socialist nature of my church. I would far rather give monies to my church rather than the Federal government, I see the results of our giving to folks in need. I see no positives from the dollars taken from citizens that are pissed away on failed social, fill their hands programs. Those programs do just one thing, build on the sit on your fannie mantra that far to many American's depend on.

"Catholic Charities USA receives more than half of its funding each year ($554 million in 2010) from federal grants. In 2012, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops received $63 million…in federal grants."

I see no positives from the dollars taken from citizens that are pissed away on tax-exempt groups like Catholic Charities to subsidize their "charitable" work. It much better to spend those millions to support social welfare programs than help the Catholic church build up its coffers.

Buying you, and 20 million of your best Liberal friends foodstamps, sec 8 housing, and welfare for your 10 kids is expensive....
How about $125 billion of our tax dollars per year in free stipends to big corporations under GW Bush? How about the huge war profits that accrued to Haliburtion over the bodies of 4,000 U.S. servivemen? For a war that your party lied us into.

You GOP boneheads are totally clueless to your rank hypocrisy.

As for your cliche imagery, it's typical GOP stereotyping designed to whip up hate between whites and minorities.

"Tax and Spend" Liberals?

Let's talk about "Borrow and Spend" Republicans.

Now when the government borrows money, it has to pay it back, correct?

And with what does government pay back the debt?

Did you elephants guess TAX DOLLARS? That would be correct.

So the truth comes out. Borrowing is simply a sneaky way of taxing, in which the taxing is deferred further down the road.

So... let's look at the figures.

Out of a 10.5 trillion increase from Reagan to the end of Bush II, Republican presidents acount for 8.9 trillion of it.

Can you spell T-A-X A-N-D S-P-E-N-D Republicans?

I knew that you could.

Bush 2 was much better than Carter. Carter had character but was not a good leader. Bush 1 was much better than Clinton. Clinton may have been a better leader but had no character. Obama is in a class all by himself.
Focusing on Obamacare is what I've been doing. It very well could be the silver lining of 2012.

Hi!

I'm a tax-and-spend Republican out to cut government waste.

And I'm so against big government, I'll create a giant super agency called the department of homeland security.

After I gag by dismissing all the warning signs that 9-11 was coming.

But only 3,000 died, which is less than the BS war in Iraq I lied us into.

Why was Carter a terrible president?
Tell us exactly what he did to be considered "terrible".
In other words, provide us details. Facts. What decisions did Carter take which make him a bad president?
Inflation, high interest rates, lousy foreign policy, micromanager, didn't like playing by the rules, rising energy prices, stagflation, created the Department of Education and Department of Energy.

The Department of Education was a payoff by Carter to teacher unions for their support. It was once part of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare where it should have stayed.

The Department of Energy has become a huge federal bureaucracy over the last 33 years and statistics prove it a colossal failure.

And then there was the "malaise speech". It was a rather depressing time. Carter didn't help to cheer us up.

Protecting yourself from a thief is always a natural human response.
I once was told by someone who worked alongside cops in a civilian role that the only difference between cops and criminals is that the cops are legal.
So it is with many politicians; the only difference between a criminal and the Magic Negro is that he is legal.
Even though I agree with you that there's nothing wrong with seniors supplementing their SS incomes under the table, my supplemental part-time income will be on a payroll. Which is okay too. Not making enough to affect SS.

But extra income is extra income, right?

Carol,

Me a fool?

You are the dolt at carnivals who sticks her head through the wooden target, which on the other side, people throw pies at.

Record snowfall in Spokane
Via Ice Age Now website: http://iceagenow.info/2013/11/record-snowfall...
Spokane International Airport received 1.9 inches of snow Tuesday, enough to snap a 66-year-old daily record by the slimmest of margins.
The most snow Spokane has officially received on Nov. 5 was 1.8 inches in 1947, according to National Weather Service records.
