Barack Obama, our next President

NASA's scrapped Ares I rocket may see new life as part of a new private launch vehicle to provide commercial flights to space for satellites, cargo – and maybe even people, the companies proposing it announced today (Feb. 8).

The five-segment solid rocket was developed by Alliant Techsystems (ATK), a longtime NASA contractor responsible for the twin solid rocket boosters used to launch space shuttles into low-Earth orbit.

But the booster's original purpose – to serve as the first stage for NASA's Ares I rocket for launching astronauts into space on Orion capsules – fell through last year when President Barack Obama cancelled NASA's Constellation program aimed at returning astronauts to the moon. The Ares I rocket served as one of the cornerstones for the Constellation program.

Yeah, right!

Well here you are “Lea Wrote” Simple research and I have 80 years of stats on the two parties versus your dysfunctional 5 years. GET THE PICTURE?
.. Lets put the two parties to the numbers..
Inequality has demonstrated its destructive effects to our democracy through out history. Here and abroad. Here if we take the past 80 years and examine in detail what stimulates inequality distributions, we may define a tool to gage our vote. Identify who contributes to a greater distribution of our laborers productivity. One example is Obamacare. Effectively redistributing health cost with a progressive cost to premium in ratio to “income not health”.
The book,“ Bulls Bears and the Ballot Box. By Bob Deitreick and Lew Goldfarb” inspired the following;
Ever wonder which party is the party to attend to.
Promoting Inequality through the Income Gap, as one example, of many.

A mathematical investigation was produced by the statisticians Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov that exposes the superior performance of the stock markets under democrats. That this is but one example of the democrat’s superiority, as there are more.
Their study encompasses 80 years. Study demonstrates systematically and positively surprised by democratic policies. Comparing the stewardship of the two parties. They calculated each economic indicator as an “annual average” during the democrats and republicans of their economic stewardship of their 40 years each. Turns out to be a landslide for democrats providing beneficial returns to the nation. One example; Democrat’s presided over a very respectable average annual compound return of 9.60% during their 40 years where in as republicans averaged a dismal 0.58%.
Consider this; a 401K plan invested in stocks and had a value of $100,000 at the beginning of the 40 years. Democrats would accumulate in compound interest $ 3,912,210 where in as republicans would only produce $126,027 . Another example; “IF” an employee were to invest $5,000 per year into their 401K for 40 years in a democratic stewardship the employee would have $1,985,526 in the bank. Where as the republican would produce a dismal $224,375.
That republicans advocate that they are good for businesses is false as compared to the democrats
Another interesting fact emerges within the statistical study. The income gap between the 99% and the top 1% has widened considerably under republicans. Averaging .49% as compared to the democrat’s .41% That is to say under republicans the income gap in 40 years, widened by 19.6% and narrowed 16.4%. Resulting in a 36% difference.
LOL on debt republicans increased debt by 2.5 times greater than that of the democrats. Republicans $7.1 Trillion vs. the democrats $2.8 Trillion.
GOP’s Self-Proclamation for economic dominance; in fact it is a misnomer to call the GOP a fiscal responsible party and or a smaller government, when in fact the contrary is true.
Obama’s administration indicates he sought the great leaders on these issue. Eccles and FDR, Clinton and O’Neill to do what is most productive for our nation.
Now pass on this one small example of the fallacies of the republican’s erroneous policies and deceptions..

Actually Carol, we don't. We certainly don't condone killing babies born alive. I was as happy as anyone when Dr Gosnell was convicted. On our side we want to make abortion less of an option by providing contraception, comprehensive sex education and strengthening to social safety net which are all things that prevent unwanted pregnancies. If those like you had their way and simply banned abortions, there would be more Dr Gosnells out there and women would die. You're also a hypocrite Carol because once these children are born you don't really give a damn.
The vast majority of conservative didn't condone the off-the-wall statements made by those two republicans either.

But the liberal media made absolutely sure they were seen as the voice of the entire Republican Party, didn't they?

In 2016, I hope the GOP finds a few liberals who emphatically advocate the killing of born alive babies and force you guys to have to deny they are the spokespeople for your entire party.

Tit for tat, I say. Time to learn how to play the game.

House lawmakers in Washington vote to extend NASA space shuttle program
Published: Wednesday, April 29, 2009, 1:50 PM Updated: Wednesday, April 29, 2009, 6:03 PM
Shelby G. Spires, The Huntsville Times By Shelby G. Spires, The Huntsville Times
HUNTSVILLE, AL -- Moves are being made by space shuttle supporters on Capitol Hill for NASA to stop the beginning of the shut down of the shuttle program. NASA had been told to start terminating contracts and begin an orderly shut down of the program starting Friday.
NASA
Lawmakers in Washington are working to extend the space shuttle program by one year through 2011.
Alabama lawmakers have expressed fears that any shuttle extension could drain money from future NASA development projects, like the Ares I rocket being developed in Huntsville.
The budget resolution passed the U.S. House of Representatives today, it included money to extend the shuttle, and is expected to be taken up by the U.S. Senate this week.
House and Senate conference committee members came to an agreement on the budget resolution. The agreement includes language that removes a provision that a hard deadline for shuttle retirement, which had been set for May 1, or Friday.
U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Tuscaloosa, and U.S. Rep. Parker Griffith, D-Huntsville, have both expressed reservations over extending the shuttle program if it would mean the Marshall Space Flight Center Ares rocket program would be delayed. Those rockets - Ares I and Ares V - are slated to replace the shuttle and perhaps be used to take astronauts to the moon.
The final budget resolution provides an additional $2.5 billion in fiscal year 2011 for the Shuttle program. The original budget would have slashed shuttle funding to about $100 million from about $4 billion a year.
Rep. Suzanne Kosmas, D- Fla., voted against the original House version citing the lack of flexibility and funding for the Shuttle program past 2010. Kosmas represents Florida's 24th Congressional District, which abuts much Merritt Island the location of Kennedy Space Center and it contains aerospace industry heavy Titusville.
Last week, Kosmas sent a letter to the chairs and ranking members of the House and Senate Budget Committees outlining the risks associated with a hard deadline and urging them to include a Senate provision that would give NASA the flexibility to fly the Shuttle into 2011 if necessary.
Who was in charge of Congress in 2008?
The 110th US congress and the 111th US congress seem to confuse the fk out of you Flacko.

The STS program was doomed beginning as early as 2004.

Whatever would follow would be nowhere as expensive or exciting, get over it.

Maher, Weiner Get in Crazy Shoutfest with GOP Guest Over Obamacare: Where’s the GOP’s Plan?!
Bill Maher and Anthony Weiner battled Real Time panelists GOPAC president David Avella and Victoria DeFransceco Soto over the media coverage of Obamacare and President Obama‘s apology for the botched rollout, with Weiner and Maher charging that however bad the rollout may have been, the Republicans had effectively no plan to deal with the health care crisis in the first place.
Whereas Maher thought the media’s been doing a crappy job not reporting the facts to people about the lower costs and better options of health care plans, Avella said they’re not doing their due diligence to report on the “hundreds of thousands of people who are losing their health care.” Weiner shot back that Obamacare came from Republicans in the first place, shouting “That’s your idea! Why don’t you like it now that we wrote it into law?!”
Soto found it a huge mistake that Obama waited weeks before apologizing and explaining the faulty “if you like your plan you can keep your plan” line, and when Weiner pushed back, she said,“You’re being paternalistic here.” She argued that Obama’s apology was too little, too late, at which point Maher cried,“When did Bush ever say he was worry!”
Weiner kept insisting,“We’re trying to provide coverage because the Republicans can’t come up with a way to do it!”
http://www.mediaite.com/tv/maher-weiner-get-i...
pretty bad when you get smacked down by the weiner.
Weiner has been smacking down a lot sometimes he even takes pics of his smacking...the rest is history!

Early American History was the focus - from Jamestown to the Civil War - at the fifth grade level. Also taught math, English, spelling, creative writing, Reading and Science.
History wasn't in the curriculum teaching first and second grade.
Assigned two research projects a year in my fifth grade classes too. Teaching research skills was important to me with a creative twist. Several were shared with the entire school at assemblies and were a big success. Students did the work on their own with my supervision and experienced the joy of learning.
But teaching early American History was just one subject among.
Just to clear that up.
You taught at grade school level for nine years in a semi rural Florida district (Polk).

More people are going to pay more for health insurance under ACA...

A shortage of doctors and millions more seeking doctors means long waits and rationed care..."gibberish".

Substituted in Illinois before moving to Florida too and taught Music Education at a private school one year. Just to get you up to snuff since you know so much about my personal life.

Always said I was an elementary school teacher mainly in Central Florida.

Your close but alas whoooosh right over your head. Only the most depraved naive could ever conceive that the 2008 disaster was established after the fact.
You fail to do research to discover its roots, go back over a century ago with the fastest acceleration occurring from the 1970’s and up. During each republican administration they increased finical inequality as democrats suppressed its increase or even went as far as to reverse it for a brief moment in time.{F.D.R., Truman, Clinton}
Foxy tabloid pointed malarkey no longer cuts it with those of us that have enlighten ourselves. As the weak minded naives that are continuously bought off for 30 pieces of silver to destroy their democracy, fester in the Fox’s den.
Yes we must have are naives although they are dwindling away with this Spartan educational system and our ability to communicate with simple researched facts at our fingertips. Hours of research done in a matter of minutes. Yes the naive herd will continue for their will always be that group of dysfunctional human beings. Its just the nature of this beast.
Too abbreviated for you? Ok then let's go through who it was that refused to controlled the issues with Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae?
Bush Administration warned repeatedly this was a serious trouble and had to be revised. But who was it that said it was in good shape and no revision or additional control was needed?

Don't stress yourself I will supply the answers yet again.

Barney Frank and Christopher Dodd. Both democrats and both up to their necks in insider shenanigans political favor and cronyism.

Where are they by the way? Did they serve one day in jail for the felonies committed?
