Alec Baldwin, Bitch Extraordinaire

Baldwin's MSNBC show "Up Late" is ending.

Sources reported Tuesday that the host has been fired.

Sources also reported that an obscenity-filled, homophobic rant, as well as his "diva-like behavior toward co-workers," were to blame for Baldwin and MSNBC parting ways.

Regardless of what he looks like, Obama is a liar and untrustworthy to everyone but his staunchest supporters.

The great part about these latest developments is it releases millions of people who were too afraid to criticize Obama for fear of being labeled a racist.

He brought all of his latest troubles on himself. No one, not even his fawning, protective media can save him now. Oh, they'll try alright, but it's just a tad too late. The lyin' cat is way out of the hope and change bag.

First black president? Let's get our story straight little Sherlock. Obama is bi-racial meaning half white/half black. Obama is neither more black than white so when someone says they find his politics harmful to America and the American People they are no more racist to his black side as they are to his white side. Perhaps instead of playing the racism victim's card you should realize the merits of the case against Barack Hussein Obama. The case against him is long and well documented even though the media has failed to do it's job since Obama ran for president and the large majority of the media is still failing to do their respective jobs.

ACA-ObamaCare is the biggest FRAUD ever committed on the American People by a sitting president and a political party. We were willfully LIED to from the beginning and it continues to this day. The scandals this president and his political operatives in the IRS, NSA, State Dept., and the White House set new records of cronyism and corruption. DOJ is the most corrupt I've ever seen in my entire lifetime and I'm retired. Our military has top brass and high ranking officers which have been forced to retired, removed from active duty in numbers never seen in the history of our country. Politico's have replaced many.

The most recent mistake is the agreement with Iran which gave them everything they needed to continue with our blessing, closer to a nuclear power. Don't believe the MSM they are reporting the official line which is ridiculous even on the surface. This is the exact scenario which happened in the 90's with North Korea and the very person who negotiated that huge mistake is also negotiating with Iran on this arrangement, a Clinton era tie over. How did it go with North Korea? We gave them more time and loosen sanctions, and the end result is North Korea is a rogue nuclear power. North Korea is working with Iran to develop a long range missile delivery system. Iran and North Korea's last meeting was October 30, 2013 in regards to this system. North Korea is a terrorist country with nuclear capabilities and Iran is a terrorist country seeking nuclear capabilities and the delivery system for long range missiles.

You do the math!

Obama Fascism rears its ugly head yet again!

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION launches an attempt to pass new rules that would limit the activities of certain tax-exempt groups like those involved in the IRS Tea Party targeting scandal, leading Republicans to accuse the administration of trying to quiet its critics.

I agree with #1. Don't agree with #2 and closing private schools unless, perhaps, public schools are free of PC poisoning and union dominance. Agree with #3 within reason based on the rising costs of living. Don't agree with #4. Throwing more money at a problem doesn't fix the problem, something we never seem to learn. Tax reform is the only fix. Agree with #5,#6 and #7.
Why I said I agree with almost everything in the article.
http://www.cnn.com/2013/10/29/opinion/sutter-...
Morning, PDupont.
Good morning to you Carol. Let's take each of these points one by one.
#1 Sure I agree with that but getting people to talk across socio-economic lines isn't something that can be legislated. The town I grew up in was divided not by racial lines but by economic. One part of town, the "Falls" was occupied by factory workers who largely rented apartments and on the other end the professional and managerial class who owned their own homes . My family was in the middle. My father was a factory worker but made good money and we lived in our own house. The equalizer was the high school everyone went, there was no private school to create a further divide.
What is this "poisonous" PC you're always in a lather about? Perhaps you could come up with an example? It's not unionized teachers that are the problems in most school systems it's the appointed administrators that tend to gum up the works. The system that my wife retired from is in a strongly Republican district and it's top heavy with managers and light on teachers and aides and others that work directly with the students.
What's within reason for the minimum wage Carol? The minimum wage in 1968 was $1.60 an hour so accounting for inflation and cost of living it should now be $10.75. ThatÂ’s still only $22,360 a year for an individual. To get the economy going at a healthy pace we need to give workers a wage that not only barely covers their basic needs but enough disposable income to go out and buy products. Is the GOP on board with this? No. My family was lucky in that my father made a good wage for the time thanks to his union and my mother could stay at home and take care of the family.
Ronald Reagan would disagree with you on #4 Carol, he didn't feel that it was fair that those making their money from investments should pay a lower tax rate than those that go out and work at a job. Under his administration capital gains tax rates were the same as those on ordinary income.
Yes we agree that workers should have more of a voice but we probably disagree on how that could be done. Companies are not going to give their workers more say unless the workers are organized and that means strengthening unions. As Theodore Roosevelt said;
"It is essential that there should be organization of labor. This is an era of organization. Capital organizes and therefore labor must organize."
I'm glad you agree with #6 but that puts you in direct contradiction with the most conservative Supreme Court justices who overturned campaign spending limits in the Citizen's United case.
As for #7, sure I do that myself especially this time of year when the Salvation Army red kettles abound everywhere. When we were in DC we went to a Five Guys for lunch and a woman seeing my wife was in a wheel chair went out of her way to clear a seating area for her. I thought that she was an employee but found out that she was in fact a homeless person. Yes she got a few bucks from me for being considerate and caring even though we were better off than she was.
Not going to have a lot of time today, my son gets in from DC at 9:30 AM unless the weather delays his flight. In any case have a good Thanksgiving Carol.

God is spirit. He is called "father" as a loving term of endearment. There is a spirit world. It exists just as flesh and blood exists. Our five senses allow us to experience God's love in creation. Our spirit allows us to experience God's love.
Love and the power of love has to come from somewhere. I believe Christ was who he said he was, and he said God is love and truth...and spirit.
My belief is that all life in the universe was created by the same source or God and that we are all somehow interconnected. Just how, I don't know. Just know we are.
It doesn't make sense to me that God would create the entire universe and all life in the universe and then say "see ya'".
How does that make sense to you?
Reread what I posted. I will be back on Sunday maybe we can talk about it then.

Racist? What about supporting the 1st black president, regardless of race don't you understand? True non racist white folks should've been happy to welcome in the 1st black president, and they were. You right wingers tried you damnest to link your racism to politics, to publically criticize the black man , and remain the undercover racists you truly are. The simple fact that, ya'll openly admitted that Obama outcampaigned both Mccain & Romney proves your racism without a doubt. But you'll lie through your teeth to save face, you racist POS!

Yeah, more untrustworthy than any of the white presidents to precede him, right? Every program you racist blame Obama for, was started under Bush, Reagan, or some other republican racist! Even the ACA was a republican idea, only now scrutinized because, a black, democrat succeeded where they all failed. Take pride in your racism, you are what you are! What's crazy is, you KKK's have an excuse for all of Obama's accomplishments. TAKE PRIDE IN YOUR RACISM, YOU ARE WHAT YOU ARE!

Obama is the first Kenyan-American president. His father was never a citizen of the United States,not even for one day. Obama doesn't believe in our country because he doesn't share our traditional values. It is not racist to vote for someone that shares your morals,values, and principles. The racists are the people that voted for someone based on the color of that persons skin,most likely most of the people that voted for Obama. Obama has no character,so the only reason any one would have voted for him is based on his race. A lot of people wanted a Kenyan in The White House,many regret it but most of them are not intelligent enough to know that they are responsible for the consequences of their vote.

Sure, my imagination! I imagined 9/11. Then I imagined Bush's response. Raiding Iraq, a sovereign nation that had nothing to do with 9/11, occupying that country for 10 yrs, just to steal oil! If I imagined that, Imust be a prophet.
