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

Getting back to the original subject. Did the government involve itself in the housing market or was it a regulated capitalist market?
The government is involved. This is why banks are paying fines for breaking the law.

You are a flat liar, you post constantly articles that you don't give credit to the author in the hopes that someone, anyone will think that you are smarter than you actually are. Your continuous degrading of all that don't agree with your mindless BS with your libtard comments are a sad reflection on you far more than others. There is little doubt in my mind that you are the typical wannabe that most of society has looked down upon. And a stone racist, like most baggers.

Don't have a baby till you can afford it like we did.
So__let me get a better understanding. You rant about paying for welfare and food stamps and you rant about paying for birth control and abortions.

But you never explain how it is that you are paying for these government services.

Do you think that if the services were abolished your meager tax bill would be reduced?

By the way__abortion clinics are closing in droves forcing women to drive further and even cross state lines for a legal medical procedure. Yet the number of abortions is said to be increasing?

Did anyone see this on MSNBC last night? I thought she was drunk; either that or insane:

“People without health care right now, who don’t have health care for their children, don’t want this law, Chris,” Stefano said.

“As a mother, I take real offense that women are being forced to have no choices to cover their children,” Stefano continued.

“What are you talking about?” an incredulous Hayes responded, before arguing that much of the “heavy lifting” under the law would be accomplished by expansion of state Medicare programs, which have been frequently been opposed by conservatives.

“Throw out the mandate, throw out the exchange,” Hayes then told her.“Bumping up Medicaid eligibility from 100 percent of poverty line to 133 percent of poverty line so that some working poor people can get some health insurance — what is the objection to that? Why does every conservative Republican governor oppose that? Explain that to me.”
“Do you believe in Medicaid expansion?” Hayes asked.

“I have a real problem, when you talk about raising the poverty level, that’s people making $94,000 a year,” she said.“They’re not poor. That is taking resources from the poor.”

“Not on the Medicaid expansion,” Hayes said, shaking his head.

“The expansion of Medicaid is a moral issue, not an economic one,” Stefano charged.

“That’s a math trainwreck, that’s not the Medicaid expansion,” he said.

<quoted text>Ever wonder why only losers like you keep the story going?
The JS first reported on the tax charge back in May, when the left/media was flogging the story of the video where Walker was caught-on-tape using the phrase "divide and conquer" in a conversation with Hendricks.
Back then, however, the paper provided some useful context: Hendricks had paid millions a dollars in state income taxes in the years prior to 2010. In fact, in 2009, her tax bill was a whopping $2.26 million, but dropped to zero the next year.
Why? What happened?
As it turns out, the explanation was quite straight forward if somewhat complicated. The company Hendricks owned had changed its corporate structure, which changed the way taxes were reported and paid.
Scott Bianchini, ABC's tax director, explained that "before 2010, ABC Supply was an "S" corporation, meaning the profits and the tax obligation flowed to Hendricks as the owner of the firm. In 2010, the company changed its structure so the profits and the tax obligation stay with the company."
"Now ABC is paying taxes on its own," Bianchini said....
"In addition, Bianchini provided records showing that the company paid Wisconsin income taxes of more than $1 million last year and said that Hendricks' 2011 income tax liability is "substantial." through her business.
In other words, Diane Hendricks not only did pay state taxes, she paid a ton of them.
None of that context was provided in Sunday's story --perhaps because it didn't fit the Diane Hendricks-is-a-greedy-tax-avoi ding-billionaire narrative.
The Hendricks-paid-no taxes meme was pushed hard earlier this year by a variety of left leaning groups, who shopped the story that she had paid no corporate taxes despite being worth more than $2 billion. The charge was flogged by the Institute for Wisconsin's Future which falsely charged that “ABC Supply paid exactly $0.00 in state corporate income tax in 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008, according to the state Department of Revenue.”
But the institute got it wrong.
However, Scott Bianchini, tax director with Beloit-based ABC Supply, said the Institute for Wisconsin’s Future jumped to a conclusion without thoroughly checking the facts.(just like you usm).
Like I said...typical Republican. Always taking advantage of tax loopholes to prevent paying their fair share. "S corporation". LMAO

No one is hoping things around more than me. But it's not going to happen as long as this president is still leading us down the path of destruction.
So it's probably better to be prepared.

The latest AP poll shows:
Poll: Obama’s disapproval rating hits a new high
What will the sheeple think if they wake up enough to find out Obammy's even given away control of the Internet?
"Negative views of President Obama have hit a new high, according to a poll
The AP-GfK poll shows 59 percent of Americans now disapprove of Obama -- a point higher than the previous high set in December.
Obama's approval rating stands at 41 percent. That's the second-lowest figure the poll has ever found.
Part of Obama's problems appear to be related to foreign policy: The poll shows Americans disapprove of his handling of the situation in Ukraine 57-40 and disapprove of how he handles relationships with other countries 58-40.
In January, Americans were evenly split on Obama's diplomacy skills.
The poll was conducted Thursday through Sunday.
Nearly six in ten Americans now disapprove of President Obama's job performance, with just 41 percent giving him a thumbs-up. That's the top line result of a new Associated Press national poll, representing Obama's worst performance in the history of the survey.
Obama didn't fare any better on most issues, earning poor marks on his handling of the economy (39/59), the federal budget (36/63), immigration (38/61), and foreign affairs (40/58).
The survey reveals a sharp deterioration in the president's personal favorability, which dropped to (42/51).
Bizarrely, the AP appears to not have asked any questions about Obamacare, despite any number of news hooks -- including the impending (but extended) enrollment deadline.
CBS News' latest poll did ask about Obamacare, however. It showed public approval of the health law underwater (41/53), the exact same margin as this week's brutal Morning Consult poll. That survey noted that undecided likely 2014 voters disapprove of Obamacare by a 40 point margin.
Obama is upside-down on healthcare approval (40/56) in the CBS poll, in which respondents said the current healthcare sign-up process is going poorly by nearly a two-to-one margin. A fresh Fox News poll also contains unwelcome news for the White House, with Obama's overall job approval sucking wind at (40/53).
Fox polled two issues related to American prestige:
* the cancellation of our space shuttle program (the US has struck a deal to pay Russia roughly $71 million per astronaut, per space flight, because we currently lack the capability to launch our own people into space),
* and the Obama administration's decision to transfer control of the internet from the United States to an international body.
ummmm///Obama didn't cancel the shuttle program. it was scheduled to have a finite life when it was first planned.

why are you so ignorant?

let me see, listen to Forbes or listen to Dave. Damn, this is a tough one!
According to the US Census, there are about 15 million 4 member family households out of about 80 million total households.

Do the math. Hint, its not 75 percent

This from a person who grew up in the number two state in sucking in government funding who now lives in an area funded by military spending.
Well let's see. When I was growing up there every person of adult age had a job. A well paying job for the most part. Welfare was frowned on. My home town was a booming little town. Two drug stores, a car dealership, 3 grocery stores, 2 auto parts stores, a theater, a liquor store, two clothing stores. Now there is none of the above. What happened? Taxes and regulations. The steel mill closed, the charcoal plants closed, the coal mines started automating and closing. The three railroads mostly pulled out of town. What was once a booming little town is now a haven for crack heads and section 8 housing. It is depressing every time I go back.
