Barack Obama, our next President

As someone who graduated in the top ten percent of her class at Columbia Law School Carolyn is certainly far more qualified to serve as an Ambassador than Bush's choice of high school graduate Shirley Temple as a U.S. Ambassador. Now, that was inept.
Will she be living there?

It draws on a number of approaches, including ecological economics, solidarity economy, degrowth, systems thinking and Buddhist economics.

"Degrowth?" - Degrowth is a political, economic, and social movement based on ecological economics and anti-consumerist and anti-capitalist ideas.

"Solidarity economics?" - "...a set of strategies and a struggle aimed at the abolition of capitalism..."

You're in the wrong country, traitor.

She admits to being mentally unfit to do medical transcribing, which is basically copying crap, yet presents herself as an expert on the economy, foreign affairs, healthcare, abortion, etc.

She can't seem to admit that her brain is old and moldy, likely from years of personal self abuse, smoking and eating all the wrong foods.

She's the perfect prototype of the Teabags here; addlebrained.

I'm happy she's on your loser side.

They are changing gears and going in reverse - not because they know the Tea Party and Ted Cruz was right (and they would never admit that anyway) but because the harsh reality of Obamacare has set in - something that eluded them until now - and it is affecting and threatening their positions of power.
Franken is another liberal who thinks himself and his party are the only considerations in the whole scheme of things.
They know what's best, after all, and must remain in power to enforce their will on the rest of us at all costs.
lol! It's great that you center your thoughts on your politics and not the people.

the real disgrace is when wealthy dilletantes like Caroline (not Carolyn) Kennedy take up space in law schools when they never have any intention of working as attorneys for a single day of their indolent lives...

It's been affecting everyone (the country) since 2010 when the Democrats pulled its sleazy moves to pass Obamacare.
Employers cut back on hiring, people began spending less, people have had their hours cut and good paying jobs have turned into Obama/Democrat low paying jobs.
Only a few million people have been screwed so far but next year it will be tens of millions, which is why Obama is (again) unilaterally changing the implementation of the law to delay things until after the mid-term election, idiot.
Funny how passing the bushie boy tax cuts again was supposed to create jobs according to cons...

... and then all they did was complain more!

We're good, Lord willing, but appreciate your concerns.

None of us can foresee the future especially these days but, thankfully, I'm not afraid of work. Just something different.

My parents and many of their generation retired at 60.

Hope you won't be forced to work long into your "golden years". When you hit 60 and beyond, you'll understand. Depending on what you do for a living, you might be looking into something different too. It's really not all that uncommon.

The party of "no" means "no, you can't have everything you want just because you think someone died and made you king."

Thank God for the party of "no", I say.

This administration's manipulation of power and that of your party epitomizes politics.

Everything they do is based on politics. Every failure and cover-up was based on politics. They wrote the book on politics.

Nothing they do and not one of their thoughts is centered on the people. Except how best to control them.

Why do you think the people are turning en masse against them?
