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 ... Read more

" These were the names of some of the leaders of Simeon's wealthy clans, who traveled to the region of Gedor, in the east part of the valley, seeking pastureland for their flocks. They found lush pastures there, and the land was quiet and peaceful. Some of Ham's descendants had been living in the region of Gedor. But during the reign of King Hezekiah of Judah, the leaders of Simeon invaded it and completely destroyed the homes of the descendants of Ham and of the Meunites. They killed everyone who lived there and took the land for themselves, because they wanted its good pastureland for their flocks. Five hundred of these invaders from the tribe of Simeon went to Mount Seir, led by Pelatiah, Neariah, Rephaiah, and Uzziel – all sons of Ishi. They destroyed the few Amalekites who had survived, and they have lived there ever since.- 1 Chronicles 4:38-43 "
There were bad guys even in ancient times.

But you have to know the whole story. You're editing out of context - just like the liberal mainstream media - to fit your agenda.

However, Simeon's clans ultimately dwindled and were subjected to Babylonian captivity.

What goes around, comes around.

If there was one takeaway from her 2012 Senate race for Warren, it was that the campaign trail turned out to be more brutal than she could ever have expected. Republicans questioned her integrity, her family members were dragged through the mud and her opponent mocked her appearance in a radio interview.
“What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” she writes about the 2012 Senate campaign.“I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me.”
Perhaps the most hurtful and high-profile attack thrown against Warren by Brown had to do with her heritage.

Wanna bet this lying, hypocritical POS enjoyed every minute of abuse 'launched' at Sarah Palin?
And just what are you basing this inane post on? Do you have any statements by Warren on Palin to back up your crap?
Sarah Palin was the most unqualified candidate for national office this country has ever seen. She brought your so called "abuse" on herself by demonstrating her total ignorance on a variety of issues like the Bush Doctrine and the role of the Vice President. She was put on the ticket as a sop for the religious right. Who in their right mind would think that someone who took six years and several colleges to get a degree most people accomplish in four should be a heartbeat away from the Presidency?

State Democrat: Vermont already struggling with financing its single-payer system
POSTED AT 1:21 PM ON MARCH 18, 2014 BY ERIKA JOHNSEN


Blue-dominated Vermont already had a healthcare system that ran heavy with government involvement prior to ObamaCare, but the small state of about 625,000 residents dove headfirst into the task of creating their own ObamaCare exchange with eventual plans to evolve the entire program into a full-on single-payer system through the next few years. So far, even just their ObamaCare exchange has been struggling to get off of the ground (and they happen to be spending more federal money on uninsured residents than other states with more of them,$167 million!), and their single-payer ambitions are evidently on some very rocky financial ground. Via Watchdog.org :

Now, even Democrats say that plan, called Green Mountain Care, isn’t ready for its proposed 2017 rollout, and Rep. Jim Condon told Vermont Watchdog it’s time for Gov. Peter Shumlin to shelve the ambitious plan immediately.

“The deadlines for proposing financing have been missed two years in a row now, so to me that’s very disappointing. It’s becoming clearer and clearer that there is no financing plan,” Condon told Vermont Watchdog.

As Vermont Watchdog reported, an independent report by the Washington, D.C.-based consulting firm Avalere Health concluded that the costs of Green Mountain Care would require Vermont to raise tax revenue roughly equal to the state’s tax collections from all sources today.

Condon, a Democrat from Colchester, said he thinks a single-payer system in Vermont would “cost more” than a couple of previous estimates. Those estimates pegged the cost for single-payer at anywhere from $1.6 billion to $2.2 billion annually.

“It’s a government program [so] I think it’s going to cost more than that. Given that, I think it would be in the best interest of Vermonters to redirect our energies away from single-payer health care to trying to improve the system we’re in now,” Condon added.

Part of the original state legislation included a condition that the single-payer system not have any negative implications for Vermont’s economy — but as the aforementioned Democratic lawmaker mentions, raising taxes to a pretty huge and perhaps even doubled degree seems like one of their only options for adequately financing the project. This definitely looks like yet another case of blue-state ambitions with eyes bigger than their collective stomach, no?

Thanks PDupont, that is such a sad story. But unfortunately one of many through out the country that could have been prevented if the Republicans and the idiots on here that support those do nothing creeps really cared about their fellow human beings. Carol as a professed Christian is one of the biggest supporters of these policies that violate women, uninsured children, the elderly, whether it be insurance or food. But boy do they fight to the death for tax breaks for the very rich. I wonder what her God thinks about all of that ? But she has an excuse for everything.

The Hidden Reason Why Big Government Wants to Raise the Minimum Wage

April 24, 2014 By Jennifer Burke

Wisconsin-Living-Wage
With a fervent nationwide push, led by Barack Obama and the Democrats, for an increase to the minimum wage to what is deemed to be a “living wage,” the nation could learn a lot about the economic impact of such legislation by simply looking at what is happening in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

In January of this year, Big Labor in Wisconsin got a boost from Milwaukee County Supervisor David Bowen in what appears to be a payback for their support in his 2012 election. Bowen met at his office with officials from the SEIU Wisconsin State Council to craft a “living wage” ordinance. At the time, Adam Tobias of the Wisconsin Reporter, reported that, according to the non-partisan comptroller’s office, this could lead to the bankrupting of the county’s Department of Family Care, reduced job growth, and a hindrance to future development.
Tobias reported that this push for a “living wage” would increase hourly salary to $12.45 for 350 county workers and hundreds more who work as contractors. Special consideration, however, would be given to firms that hire contract workers if those “workers are covered by a collective bargaining agreement between the employer and a bona fide labor union.” In that case, firms would be exempt from the “living wage” hike.

Opponents of the hike, including County Executive Chris Abele, charged that such an increase would cost the taxpayers not just millions in dollars, but also thousands of jobs. But, Bowen, with the help of his labor buddies, was able to get the legislation passed with a “living wage” of $11.32 an hour.

As with the unAffordable Care Act, residents of Wisconsin are now seeing even more what’s in the bill now that it is passed.

In addition to the tens of millions of dollars extra this increase in minimum wage at the behest of Big Labor will cost taxpayers, there is another immediate effect. This Milwaukee County government collusion with SEIU’s labor unions will require the creation of 3 new regulatory positions to the tune of $218,000.

The proposal contradicts repeated claims by Supervisor David Bowen that the $11.32-an-hour living wage he authored with Service Employee International Union-affiliated officials would not cost taxpayers because businesses contracting with the county would absorb the added expenses.

Supervisor Deanna Alexander said she never believed those statements from Bowen, which is why she invited him to participate in a March debate on the economic impact of the living wage.

Bowen, who hasn’t returned phone calls or emails from Wisconsin Reporter over the past several months, later declined at the urging of a Big Labor advocacy group.

“(Bowen) publicly testified (the living wage) wouldn’t cost Milwaukee County money because the costs would all be passed along to, and absorbed, by business owners,” Alexander told Wisconsin Reporter.“Never mind that such a premise still means that it costs someone something, and that government by its own virtues, passes every cost along to the public in one way or another.”

Recognizing the impact of this increased regulation through the creation of a “living wage,” Alexander addressed not only the economic impact, but also the impact on freedom by saying,“I believe that most people, whether liberal or conservative, really just want to be free, and the one-two punch created by these burdensome rules push us in the opposite direction.”

In addition to freedom being impacted by the overregulation of an overreaching government, increasing the minimum wage will be detrimental to the “everyday’ worker with increased costs, taxes, and loss of jobs. However, there are two groups that would benefit from a “living wage” implementation – the albatross of big government and their crony buddies in the labor unions.

All of the above by Flack the flake has been disproven and totally false, in the past everytime the minimum wage was raised it didn't cause job loss and it did improve the economy. Republicans learned long ago that using fear and lies works best on their supporting muppets.
