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

Dreams deferred
Bisset hopes to return to school “when my finances are more stable,” but Harmony Glenn is fairly sure she’ll never go back.
“I never assumed [retail] would be my career,” she said.“I always assumed it was what I was doing until I finished my degree.” Becoming a manager at the skin care store would help her pay off the family debt, while going back for a political science degree promises her nothing.
Both Glenns do worry about what their parents think; their families stressed the importance of college early on. Harmony “walked into kindergarten knowing that what came after high school was college.” Christopher’s father, just 18 when he was born, tried to steer Christopher away from his own profession as a paramedic because of the low pay. His father worked two jobs so Christopher’s mother could go to school, and she’s now a city comptroller.
“My mom is kind of the poster child for ‘a degree will get you farther,’” Christopher said.“But at this point, it doesn’t always work like that.”

once a college graduate works at a non-college job for several years, their chances of getting back on the career track are slim to none..

...why would business hire them instead of a new graduate???...

why should we care?
But I do understand her making it public. Given the hatred, bias, misunderstanding our society has towards homosexuals, I think its important that people like her and that Pro NBA'er come out and announce their homosexuality. Just to show the bigots in our society that homosexuals are normal everyday Americans.
I can still remember my grandmother referring to blacks as darkies
and my father using the infamous "N" word....however as time went on his attitude changed and became more encompassing of all Americans. I think that when he found out his nephew was gay, that wall started to crumble.
We're all in this together...its time we started thinking of Planet Earth as a lifeboat floating through space....either we all learn to work together or we all perish
and how does a news person maintain the illusion of objectivity on this divisive issue after publicly announcing their loyalty???...

That's a rather novel use of "socialized". What makes you think the losses were socialized?

you tell me.
Impeachment seems important in a civics class.
Two presidents impeached in 200 plus years, neither convicted.

President Obama won the popular and electoral college vote twice
and has the power of Veto.

""Boehner Admits 100% Responsibility for Shutdown ""
""The minute anyone says the government shutdown is the fault of the Democrats in Congress and President Obama, please show them this video where Speaker of the House, John Boehner takes absolute 100% responsibility for what is now the worst attack on America's government in the history of our Nation.
On the October 6th edition of This Week with George Stephanopoulos, Boehner said:(referring to the shutdown) "The threat of Obamacare was so important, it was time for us to take a stand. And we took a stand."
This "stand" that the Republicans have taken is going to have devastating consequences on the economy, children with cancer will not receive state of the art treatment options, injured soldiers will not be receiving treatment or benefits, the FDA has begun to stop food inspection, the CDC has stopped giving out life-saving flu vaccines. People are going to die. People are going to lose fortunes.
The only good thing that will come out of this disaster is that plenty of Republican members of Congress will be looking for new jobs come 2014.""

Some of these asshats even deny the shutdown!!
Yes, the same type of people who believe when a nuclear reactor shuts down so does the entire plant.

you were the one that first compared the four. I was just pointing out that the coaches had some time prior to being let go, something that you would not afford the Sec. Sebelius.
I also pointed out that using your logic, firing at the first misstep, Bush should have been fired at 09:15 EDT 9/11/2001 for a CATASTROPHIC FAILURE TO PROTECT THE UNITED STATES AND ITS CITIZENS
Just to refresh your swiss cheese memory

Sibelius is an appointed position and can be removed at anytime for job failures.
And here I thought the Progressives couldn't screw this one up.

Still confusing appointed with elected?

Appointed...
1. by, through, or as a result of an appointment (often in contrast with elected ):
2. to name or assign to a position, an office, or the like; designate:
....Yes, the coaches were appointed to their position.

Does your mortgage holder "force" you to buy homeowner's insurance? Does your state "force" you to buy car insurance? Why not health insurance? It is an insurance policy that you will actually use. Unless you are an idiot who never goes to the doctor.
when you CHOOSE to buy a mortgage, that's part of the contract.
when you CHOOSE to drive your car on public roads, that's part of the deal.
only idiots pay hundreds a month to save $60 bucks going to the doctor.

since they don't OWN the homes, why should they have homeowner's insurance??
think about it.
I have homeowners insurance on a home I don't own....since I have no stake in the building if it were to burn down I gain to score big...
kind like what happened when the GOP led Congress broke down the walls between investment and savings banks
credit default swaps....allowing money market managers to bundle up financially unsound mortgages into securities, sell them and then take out insurance that they would fail....
we all know how that ended up
You two really don't realize how stupid you sound. A person may not have a car. They may not have a house. But, they have a body that requires maintenance and, for that, they are required BY LAW to carry health insurance.

PS if they were responsible, they would pay their bills.
many people who previously had "free" medical care because they were unable to pay will now have "insurance" that has huge deductibles and copays...

...why would anybody believe they will be able to make those payments???...

arguably they are worse off with so-called "insurance"
