<quoted text> I agree.That is one of the major problem this country has. A person should be encouraged to gain wealth and better their families position in life. The libtard tax insanity keeps people down and poor. An average American is now paying 65% of their income in taxes and the libtards still want more. where does it stop? The fair Tax and get rid of ALL other taxes. The only answer.
Gaining wealth is nice but I'd burn it all before I let some creep take it all away to give it to someone else during peacetime.

Like paying taxes isn't enough that they want to take everything now? If I'm going to be forced to starve at least I can make sure nobody else will eat what I struggled to supply to my family. Fk em.

It would've helped if we had elected someone who knew what he was doing.
NFL star, Jim Brown, campaigned for Obama. He publicly admitted, "He's in over his head."
Some of us knew that even before the 2008 election. It was pretty obvious. So why didn't people like Jim Brown know that - before it was too late?
Because people like Jim Brown are racist pigs like Oprah and millions of Welfare moochers. That's why.

This is the short answer.

The in-depth answer gets much more disturbing.

Carl Sagan's message to future explorers of Mars will cold-cock you right in the touchy feelies
A few months before he died, Carl Sagan recorded a moving message which he dedicated to future explorers and settlers of Mars. A brief excerpt of that recording has been making the rounds on the internet since early Monday morning, in the form of the quote featured up top — but Sagan's entire message is a little more difficult to come by. We've tracked it down for you, and included it below, along with a transcript.
Fair warning: you might want to have some tissues on hand. Sagan was passionate about the exploration of Mars, establishing a human presence there, and venturing out into our solar system and beyond; and that passion really comes through in the recording.
Hi, I'm Carl Sagan. This is a place where I often work in Ithaca, New York near Cornell University. Maybe you can hear, in the background, a 200-foot waterfall right nearby, which is probably — I would guess — a rarity on Mars, even in times of high technology.
Science and science fiction have done a kind of dance over the last century, particularly with respect to Mars. The scientists make a finding. It inspires science fiction writers to write about it, and a host of young people read the science fiction and are excited, and inspired to become scientists to find out more about Mars, which they do, which then feeds again into another generation of science fiction and science; and that sequence has played major role in our present ability to get to Mars. It certainly was an important factor in the life of Robert Goddard, the American rocketry pioneer who, I think more than anyone else, paved the way for our actual ability to go to Mars. And it certainly played a role in my scientific development.
I don't know why you're on Mars. Maybe you're there because we've recognized we have to carefully move small asteroids around to avert the possibility of one impacting the Earth with catastrophic consequences, and, while we're up in near-Earth space, it's only a hop, skip and a jump to Mars. Or, maybe we're on Mars because we recognize that if there are human communities on many worlds, the chances of us being rendered extinct by some catastrophe on one world is much less. Or maybe we're on Mars because of the magnificent science that can be done there - the gates of the wonder world are opening in our time. Maybe we're on Mars because we have to be, because there's a deep nomadic impulse built into us by the evolutionary process, we come after all, from hunter gatherers, and for 99.9% of our tenure on Earth we've been wanderers. And, the next place to wander to, is Mars. But whatever the reason you're on Mars is, I'm glad you're there. And I wish I was with you.

You are, Carl. You are.

The opposition to President Obama has been unprecedented. You have a do nothing Speaker and a do nothing congress; zero accomplishments.
And, despite that; President Obama has:
Delivered us a Healthcare Bill
Ended the Iraq war,
Equal Pay for women
Killed Bin Laden
Save the auto industry and on and on and on.
Who gives a fk about an old footballer?
The people elected him twice; he will go down as one of the greats, despite the whining of the white supremacists.
lily hates older people but loves to play the race card, especially when she is intoxicated, which is 24/7. If Obama goes down as all, which he is, it will be as the biggest LIAR president who told the "Lie of the Year".

Jim Brown can make all the comparisons he wants between Kennedy and LBJ; however;
they were not black. That is the difference. And, if Jim Brown is too dense to get it, then he's been hit in the head with the football too many times.

This level of incompetency isn't going to go away like the other ones.
It is bizarre how unaffected he is by his inept failures, his being caught in hundreds of lies and unbecoming juvenile behavior. He knows that Valerie is running the Store and he's absolutely confident that the Liberal MSM will cover his azz in all possible scenarios.

So he's a boy at play.

These are great:
"Spot on! Everything you just wrote about Jim Brown is correct. Ask his former girlfriend AND punching bag the actress, Brenda Sykes. I still remember the pictures of her black eyes and swollen, battered face plastered in the magazines during the seventies. This creature should be in prison rather than giving his useless opinion on talk shows. I think old Jim is trying to extend his 15 minutes of fame.
Why is Politico taking what this washed up football player/"actor" seriously? I know he is a citizen who has a constitutional right of free speech AND a right to his opinion, but REALLY! SMH!
President Obama will be remembered as one of the great ones in spite of the machinations of the Republican/teabaggers."

lily also considers Chris Brown and Traygone as a few more great ones.

MUST READ FOR EVERY AMERICAN CITIZEN:

“The ruling by Judge Leon sets a very high bar if the government wants to continue NSA electronic surveillance of U.S. telephone conversations until the government has a chance to appeal,” Klayman said.“The judge made it clear that the NSA activities were suspect under the Fourth Amendment, would not be well received and could result in additional damages.”

Klayman brought the case on behalf of Charles Strange, the father of Michael Strange, a cryptologist technician for the NSA and a support personnel member of Navy SEAL Team 6.

Michael Strange was killed in Afghanistan when his helicopter was shot down in 2011.

Charles Strange, as a subscriber of Verizon Wireless, brought the case against the NSA, Department of Justice and several U.S. officials, including President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder.

The complaint alleges the government, with the participation of private telephone companies, has been conducting “a secret and illegal government scheme to intercept and analyze vast quantities of domestic telephonic communications.”

“The government, in its understandable zeal to protect our homeland, has crafted a counterterrorism program with respect to telephone metadata that strikes the balance based in large part on a 34-year-old Supreme Court precedent, the relevance of which has been eclipsed by technological advances and a cell phone-centric lifestyle heretofore inconceivable,” Judge Leon wrote.

Department of Justice officials said they are reviewing the court’s ruling.

Judge Leon admitted at an earlier hearing that his word probably would not be the last on the case against the NSA’s PRISM program, which the federal bureaucracy claims is essential to national security.

Damages in the billions of dollars are being sought.

Klayman said previously that Charles and Mary Anne Strange received emails from him that he never sent and even a text message from their dead son. Klayman suggested at the time that the NSA was communicating to him that it could do whatever it wants.

As WND reported, the administration claims the data collected is limited to records of phone calls and email and not the content of the transmissions. But Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., said he was “startled” to learn in a secret congressional briefing how NSA analysts can decide for themselves whether to access the content of a domestic phone call.

“If low-level personnel are using PRISM in this way, one can only imagine what high-level political appointees and supervisors are doing and are capable of doing on behalf of the Obama administration,” Klayman told WND.

Among the critics of NSA actions is Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., who authored the Patriot Act. He argues the law does not give the NSA authority to collect the phone records of all Americans and is sponsoring legislation to ban it.

It has nothing to do with ideologies.

2009,Tea Party morons wanted to cut spending. That's all they cried about. " OMG OMG OMG cut sending cut spending OMG OMG OMG"

What happens when you cut government spending during a recession?

That has to do with economics, not ideologies.

If the Tea Bagging morons had a brain, they would have been at Bush's throat when he slashed revenues while increasing spending.
