Good luck to you. I'm done trying to reason with that guy. He's just going to try to blame someone or something else (that a republican did, of course) again.
Just everyone remember that Landrieu took money from the Koch brothers. Landrieu took a payoff to change her vote in favor of the ACA. Insurance companies wrote the ACA so everyone that voted for it without reading it did so because they all got a payoff. People don't get in politics any longer to serve the people. They do it now to serve themselves and rule the people. Good luck finding a replacement that will break that mold.
I've gone back and forth with this slow-thinking, brainwashed, ranting and raving non-sensical lunatic through over 1,500 posts and have heard nothing new. No thought-provoking insights, no inspirational or logical messages, only the same list of talking points over and over and over, ad nauseum. I come on here and post something new and the response? Same OLD talking points, as if they were the answer to a completely different subject.

There are mental issues at play dealing with this person. You can go 1,500-1,600 posts back, when they were posting under a different name (I don't remember it now), SAME OLD TALKING POINTS: save Medicare, Living Wage, ACA is great, MBA's are bad, corporations and their CEO's are evil, blah, blah, blah. The response to this post? It will morph into a talking point.

They had shoes with Obama's friggin picture airbrushed on them! Actions speak louder than words. I don't care what Repubs have or have not done in the past just like it doesn't matter what Dems have done in the past. What matters is what is being done right now and right now Obama issued an executive order preventing deportation (which has encouraged all this crap) and has also released known criminal illegals into cities all over but mostly in red states. Even though Bush was a horrible President he has not been in office for SIX YEARS. All this crap is on the current administration. They orchestrated this on purpose to hurt red states but guess what? A lot of people in the black community are waking up to the fact that these policies hurt them the most and they are furious with the pres. But you will defend him to your dying breath no matter what. So that means this post is only for people with brains. No point in wasting any more facts on you.
People like you DON'T want O to use Exec Order (even though he has used it less than Reagan and W) and don't encourage to Repubs in the House to at least VOTE on immigration reform; HOW TO FIX IT?

If you would turn OFF Faux News, you would learn that W's law and the cuts the Repubs allowed to happen (affecting the deportation process; not to mention the VA) has created an even LARGER backlog. That is why all these kids are coming.

Conspiracy Theory: The Repubs are behind this huge influx of kids to make O look bad.

O has gone to Congress and the Repubs refuse to act on immigration reform. Don't want to change W's law.

The plan has back fired on the Repubs.

You just know R. Perry and S. Palin will be made, don't you?

The best thing we can do now, if you cannot control your Repubs in Congress, is to allow O to rule by Exec Order; FIX EVERYTHING! Right? Is that what you are saying? Before you answer, the House is run by the Repubs and that is the MAIN ISSUE each and every time.

I seem to remember R. Perry saying that Texas takes care of Texas.

So why is he whining for Federal Money yet again? You would think they will need more low wage employees for all those low wage NO benefit jobs his state creates every day, right?

Why does he want O to go to the border after criticizing him for doing so in 2011? There are cameras out there and O sees/knows what is going on.

Why are the Repubs complaining and NOT taking action? is it yet another political ploy against the Dems (American people)?

Why another lawsuit against ACA? Didn't they hear, it is working and Hobby Lobby win will be overturned (women will make certain of it)! The best way to stop abortion is by using birth control, right? Isn't that what you want? So why get rid of Planned Parenthood; which was reducing abortions? Do you really want a bunch of rich old white men controlling what you do in the bedroom? Has Hobby Lobby removed all those Chinese mfd goods from their shelves and returned all that ill gotten 401k investment money from the morning after pill. How will you s-plain that one Lucy?

You say you don't want the Gov't to tell you what to do; so why would you want a few filthy rich people? Do you really think they have your "best interest" at heart? Really?

So many posts out there (Facebook) about uniting the country. Stop racism and create a level playing field and it will happen!

Raise Min. wage, create affordable Ed and Expand Medicare for all (take insurance cos. out of the mix - cut costs will cut premiums), RIGHT?

It's not "how many times" Obama has used Executive Orders, it's the effect of the Order, what it does.

Strangely enough, the office of president has only 1/3 control, not more or less than either of the other 2 branches. Odd how that works out for people like you that prop up this little dictator.

So you're saying this executive order is why children are coming to this country, and not the law passed under President Bush?
If you haven't caught on yet, some NEVER cite the details that go against their argument. Fox "Faux" News seems to do the same; only reports half the story. As a Taxpayer and good person, I want to know the whole truth so we can FIX what is broken.

House Votes For Tax Breaks To Add $287 Billion More To Deficit

What? What? What?

Isn't the GOP going the wrong way?

Now it makes sense. They want to get the American people upset about immigration (kids coming in at the border) while they vote in HUGE tax cuts for rich. Sound familiar?

All I can ask is "where are all the good paying jobs this stimulus was suppose to have created"?

If the middle class does not come out against this in a big way, they deserve to pay the tax bill, right?

If the middle class was smart, it would align itself with the working poor.

What is this fox news crap. It's the only station that reports the news rather than try to hide it or cover it up. Notice you haven't mentioned what news you watch. HA , bet I can guess
You haven't seen anything yet. We have only seen the tip of the iceberg. Just wait we are getting ready to see the true
catastrophies this incompetent person has created I'm sorry he is NO leader. Simply not commander in chief material. That is my opinion. I think we will reach a point soon that disease will be rampant in our country. I bet Israel will handle their business
Too bad there will be so much loss of life. DON'T MESS WITH ISRAEL.. DON'T BELIEVE OBAMA. HE'S JUST A CAMPAIGINER HOWEVER ANY DEM UP FOR REELE TION DOESN'T WANT OBAMA ANYWHERE NEAR THEM. WONDER WHY

Answer the following:

Did Fox News report the truth about Benghazi investigation? Heard the latest from the military officers in charge?

Did Fox News report the new jobs numbers for June or just put a link in small print on the screen so you can look it up? The job numbers are up, but we still need lots and lots of GOOD PAYING JOBS W/BENEFITS!!! And not job creation by going to war for other countries, right?

Did Fox News report the truth about the IRS investigation? Do you know who came up with the idea to check tax exempt organizations?

Fox News watchers, do you REALLY think you get all the correct news? Based on your posts, I would say not even close. It has been reported that people who watch Fox News only are the MOST uninformed.

Why shouldn't Israel handle their own business? I think the US should get involved when the US has an equal say in the negotiations and decision to go to war; not just send Americans to be killed and get injured when Israel decides to start a war. Hell, Iran even wants the US to help them. Want to send Americans there too?

Negotiate first, always! Hit them in their wallets! That is where it hurts the most.

You sound like Cheney; don't spend money on welfare for the poor nor fix our infrastructure; send Americans to war so the 1% can get their hands on lucrative war contracts. The VA can barely handle the vets now; why add more for no good reason. Do you really want your taxes to go up?

All you religious conservatives, what is you point of view on these illegal immigrant children coming here? You want to send them back to the desperate situation their parents sent them away from?

By the way, ACA is working and more and more Repubs LOVE IT! Yet to see one post from someone who wants to give back their New Patient Protection Rights (which is what ACA is). Now we need to fix what is broken; just like they did with Medicare, right?

VA Fix: Expand Medicare and put everyone on one plan and negotiate volume discounts. Can you imagine how many GOOD jobs that would create while doing God's work?(get rid of insurance cos. for health, auto and home - put premiums in one pot in each area - cut wasteful costs and you will see premiums go down)

You should really pay attention to what is going on in the House of Rep. They want to waste money suing the President and trying to repeal ACA while giving out more tax cuts - just shameful! Again, where are all those Good Paying jobs Reagan/ W. promised when they cut taxes for the 1%? That is what you should complain about.

Amazing, talking to nobody in particular, rant after rant about Fox News, then the usual "anti-war" rant, then on to "hitting people where they hurt", then to personalize it with a personal pronoun! Then, got to make sure you touch on illegal immigration, then ACA, then "expand Medicare" (a failing government entity/service) as a way to fix the VA, blah, blah, blah. Same tired old talking points. I can repeat what you say before you even say it.

You fail to realize that Obama is taking away all of the middle class. All he has ever done is to be in support of the poor (the voters) AND the 1%(the campaign contributors). He could give a crap about the middle, and is totally and completely killing small business owners. The 1% don't care what premium insurance costs, the poor get free healthcare, paid for by the middle-class and small business. Increased minimum wage is a rounding error for the big corporations that Obama supports. It is a killer for small business, but Obama doesn't care, they weren't his supporters anyway. "They didn't build this"! Goodbye middle-class, thanks, Obama.

Ronald Reagan and W. Bush destroyed the Middle Class with their tax cuts to the 1%. Wake up and smell the coffee, will you? Again, where are all those GOOD JOBS Reagan and W. promised when they gave their 1% friends those HUGE pay increases (you know trickle down economics - what a HUGE lie)? That is what you should be asking, right?

The US is divided because of income inequality. A fair wage for a day's work will pump up the economy and bring down welfare/unemployment claims, right?

Who is against affordable healthcare (ACA - Medicare) and education?

Who is for the US to join in on other countries' wars instead of putting people to work fixing our own infrastructure?

Yeah, Obama ran on that, where are all the "good jobs"? Where are the (nonexistent) "shovel-ready" jobs Obama talked about? Oops, they never existed, just another talking point. What about these almost six years of "fixing our infrastructure" Obama and his minions (you) have talked about all this time? The US is divided because of race baiters and "wealth" baiters.

Keep in mind lots of jobs have been created; but not nearly enough GOOD JOBS. Reagan and W. Bush cut taxes promising LOTS AND LOTS of good jobs. Take the tax revenue back! O should give tax credits for good jobs created and maintained, right?

Allow him to use Exec Orders to raise taxes on the 1% and the Gov't create lots more good jobs in education, police, fire fighting and repairing/maintaining/building our infrastructure. Allow EVERYONE to join Medicare and get rid of Ins. cos., negotiate reasonable healthcare costs and you will see lots more good jobs. You will also see an explosion of NEW small businesses. Why on earth would anyone support an out of control with no regs cookie cutter economy? You don't want the Gov't (fellow taxpayers) to tell you what to do, why do you want corporations to? FIX the IRS by making it less complicated and more fair to the 99%, right? Do you really think all those 67,000 plus pages of IRS tax code benefits the working people, really?

The Hobby Lobby win with SCOTUS only discriminates against their poor employees. Their employees were using birth control before and will continue to do so; only the money will come out of their pockets ( low wages) in addition to premiums for health insurance; do you really agree with this? Birth control stops abortions, right? Isn't stopping abortions your main focus?

Again, has anyone heard if Hobby Lobby wiped their shelves clean of products from China and returned ill gotten 401k investment money from the morning after pill? Hypocrites!
Have the owners expanded their "FAMILY BENEFIT PLAN" yet? Hypocrites!

Seems to me the owners of Hobby Lobby are OUT OF TOUCH! They are NOT acting in line with God. Do they open their stores on Sunday, the most holy day of the week? http://www.hobbylobby.com/home.cfm - looks like 24/7 to me with online shopping! Hypocrites!!!

Bush and/or Reagan are not president anymore. Wake up, come into the present day and time.

Hobby Lobby doesn't object to "birth control", they object to PAYING FOR 4 different kinds of "morning after" (abortion) medications. They object to providing abortions for employees, and are within their right to do so. "Birth control" doesn't prevent abortions, it prevents conception.

Their investments were in broad-range investments across dozens of Money Market investment accounts, which usually have hundreds of widely varied stocks to maximize return FOR THEIR EMPLOYEES. The 401k's weren't for THE COMPANY, idiot! I don't know specifically about Hobby Lobby, but most businesses and government jobs (La. Teachers, for example) offer several different options on where the money can be invested, to be chosen by the EMPLOYEE, according to historical risk and return.

Hobby Lobby is open on Sunday as a convenience to their CUSTOMERS. That's when most people have time for their HOBBIES!

Your whole statement only has one point that makes any sense at all or contains any truth: The tax code needs to be fixed (or better yet, done away with completely!). Take out ALL loopholes, make EVERYBODY pay taxes. That's what will fix the tax code.

YOU are out of touch with reality!
