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

WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) released the following statement after the administration announced that the president has again unilaterally altered the implementation of ObamaCare.

“Once again, the president is giving a break to corporations while individuals and families are still stuck under the mandates of his health care law. And, once again, the president is rewriting law on a whim. If the administration doesn’t believe employers can manage the burden of the law, how can struggling families be expected to? This continued manipulation by the president breeds confusion and erodes Americans’ confidence in him and his health care law. We need fairness for all, with relief from ObamaCare for every American.”

Food stamps are a tool used by democrats to increase government dependency.
You really are quite the shill.
The USDA has conducted a massive campaign to increase the number of food stamp recipients, even hiring recruiters who must fulfill enrollment quotas. The USDA in its “Community Partner Outreach Toolkit” webpage gives ideas of how to spread awareness and increase enrollment. Ideas have been implemented such as SNAP-based bingo games for the elderly, food-stamp parties, and fliers that that read,”Be a patriot. Bring your food stamp money home.”
But it doesn’t stop here; the U.S. and Mexico began a partnership in 2004 to “provide information on eligibility criteria for Food and Nutrition Service programs,” and that includes disseminating a Spanish language flyer that tells undocumented immigrants,“You need not divulge information regarding your immigration status in seeking this benefit [food stamps] for your children.”
The U.S. also supplies 1/3 of the Puerto Rican population with food stamps, costing U.S. taxpayers roughly $2 billion annually. Clearly, food stamp programs have become more and more about numbers, instead of need.
More rabid rightwing propaganda at work

If you were to design the Platonic Ideal of a right-wing meme in the Obama era, it might go something like this:“The Obama administration has entered into an agreement with the government of Mexico to give food stamps to Mexican immigrants … the second you arrive here from Mexico.”

Food stamps! For immigrants — possibly illegal ones!— from Mexico! It’s a veritable orchestra of dog whistles. That was Daily Caller founder Tucker Carlson speaking with Laura Ingraham Tuesday, but he’s hardly alone. Oklahoma Republican Sen. Jim Inhofe told NewsMax this week of undocumented immigrants,“As long as we supply their demand here in this country, they’re going to figure out a way to get through. And I’m talking about with the food stamps.”

“In Mexico, there is no welfare. No food stamps. Now, a lot of them — Mexicans — want to come here,” Fox News host Bill O’Reilly said Monday.(Mexico actually has an expansive welfare state, including universal healthcare rights, social security and food assistance programs, though actual access is substantially lower than what’s technically on the books.)

Brian Kilmeade brought the outrage early one morning last month to Fox and Friends, noting that “while the sequester has hit and furloughs are going to happen, the USDA is promoting food stamps in Mexico.” Co-host Steve Doocy chimed in:“What a good reason to come to the United States — they get food stamps.”

So is the Obama administration luring immigrants to the U.S. with the promise of a cushy $33.35 a week in food assistance? The short answer is no. The long answer is that the program was actually started by Bush and that one has to be in the country legally for five years before even qualifying for food stamps.

The Farm bill should properly be called the Food stamp bill, 80% of it goes to food stamps.

Ah Yes, The Drawbacks: Backup Needed

And there are the drawbacks to geothermal. Alexandra Marks, a fan of geothermal writing in the Christian Science Monitor, notes the same thing my brother-in-law says: it’s expensive, a lot more expensive than simply installing a conventional heating system. Some places offer tax breaks and other incentives for installing geothermal, but they’re not common.

And the deep, dark, dirty secret of geothermal is that, frankly, you always need a backup system.

My point is that the comments that you make are the type that wealthy people on the right make that hold the poor and working poor in contempt. You are working for an hourly wage and that makes you part of the working poor category; there is nothing wrong with that, but why do you have contempt for others in the same boat as you? I just don't get it.

Well you're pretty stupid. If the american people decided they got enought and lets say 50 mio people stoped paying taxes tommorow.

There would be absolutly nothing Obama could do about it.

The whole house of card would fall.

And as for you ameicans you are blessed with much bigger rights to buy weapons compared to us Europeans.
