Graduated from one of the top-ranked public universities in the state of Illinois. Even graduated with honors. So I'm guessing I know more than you.
Even though it's not my nature to rub things like this into someone's face, in your case I'll make an exception.
Obama is an empty suit president. I never even said that about Clinton or Carter. Those two overshadowed this president when it comes to filling in a suit with any substance.
If you choose not to acknowledge that, in fact, an empty suit occupies the White House who likes Air Force One more than being the president, that's something you need to deal with privately.
But please - in the name of all that is sacred and holy - stop waving your cotton-pickin' sign!
It's too pitiful and embarrassing.
Oh, carol, carol, carol. What you are saying, if I understand you correctly, is that you "learned more" in your school than I did in mine. Is that about the size of it? But this is VERY subjective territory isn't it, carol? I mean, were you in Architecture school out in Illinois? If so do you know more than I about the subject? How do we judge that, sweetie? Or, to reverse the positions, if I were in Home Economics can I make a better cherry pie than you do after your four years of higher education? There's really no way to measure these things, carol, except to look at the respective results. I'm at the White House for dinner every Christmas and you eat cotton candy with Mickey and Goofy. School is just a place to go get high and get laid, carol. Anybody who tells you otherwise is a goddam liar. Once you get out, your school friends with money can help you get sober and to find a good job, but, other than that, that's about it. The more you pay the more you play they say.

I suspect about as well as its worked out for the Republicans shuffling the also-rans to the top of the ticket. In 2016 should we expect a Clinton/Gingrich matchup? That's just got too much historical irony to be plausible.
2016 is a long way off and we don't even know the players yet.

The chances of Hillary getting the nomination without serious opposition are very small.

Look for an Obama surrogate in the race, getting the support of the Obama machine.

continuing the GOP slap fest...
Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) on Monday swiftly denounced Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) for a joke about Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that the former Republican presidential nominee made on Twitter.
After McCain faced accusations of racism for a tweet in which he alluded to Ahmadinejad as a monkey, the senior Arizona senator told his critics to "lighten up." Amash reacted with surprise to the original tweet before telling McCain to "wisen up" and stop making "racist jokes."

oh my. that's going to leave a mark.
So, exactly what "race" do you think Ahmadinejad belongs to?

I've got three. I built two of them. They would have been cheaper for me to buy them.)))))
The black one in the photo, I've got about 35k in it. The red prostreet, I've got over 50k in, but I designed it as well as built it. I didn't design the black one, just matched an aftermarket frame to springer forks for a specific rear and front wheel. The red bike has a S&S motor an open BDL primary with a RevTech transmission. The black bike has a Harley motor and primary with a Baker transmission.
If you bought the bikes, the black one would sell for about 25-30k. The red prostreet would sell for 40-50k. If either wins a show, double that at least.
My white Dyna was 20k to buy, and I've got another 10k in the motor and accessories.

"Taxes" isn't a source of money. It is a method of collection of money from a source of money. You have to tell us what the source of money is, i.e. WHO is going to pay that tax. The WHO part is the source of the money.

So, where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

You're running away from this question faster than a dog that just escaped from Michael Vick's house.

You still haven't answered these questions:
Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American embassy security detatchment while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?
In other words, where was Obama when the White House issued the orders to hang the Americans in Benghazi out to dry while they watched Al Qaeda kill them on real-time video?

And;

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

A simple location will suffice for the first question.
A simple source of money will suffice for the second question.

Simple question:
Can the president spend money without congressional approval?
Answer- No, he can't.
So let me help you out here, your question should be worded:
Where will the money come from to pay for congress' government?
You have my permission to use the correctly worded version of your question so you won't sound so stupid in the future.
(Didn't I read where you said something stupid like "Clinton balanced the budget" before? Just take it from there....)

There needs to ba a source of money, dufus. You may need to write this down - money doesn't grow on trees.

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

A simple source of money is all it takes to answer this question.

Leaders on the right control their flock with fear, hate and spin. There is no doubt that the medical community will soon identify FIP (FOX Induced Paranoia) as an official mental disorder. This is the civilian equivalent of Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
You nailed it! Same as I posted on another forum on a favorite topic the right want to ignore Climate change. Because when your live in constant fear of an unknown enemy then you may as well put that precious gun the government is trying to take away to your head. Climate change action put a face on something positive we could all do something about and in the end if it made no difference at least we would feel good along the way doing it. That is the big difference between those on the far right side of politics is that there is always something to fear. So gear their life around having the enemy at the gate. Be it Obama, communism, religion, ideology,culture, science or just plain common sense. This is not living, its a life of paranoia. If I was going to enjoy my twilight years then i'm going to always live it like we are doing something to make a better tomorrow then at least i will die happy. In otherwords I want to be on vacation somewhere throwing a line in or teeing up a golf ball when the asteroid hits rather than being bunkered up waiting. That is what true liberal's are about. With the other mob, the asteroid is always going to land on their roof.

Donations Pour in for Mall Cop Who Tasered Hoodrat in Front of Her Kids
When Barack Obama introduced ObamaCare early in his first term as U.S. president, debates raged on conservative blogs as to the universal healthcare’s main objective. Many believed that ObamaCare’s underlying purpose was to control the population — specifically a non-productive, unruly part of the population that continues to breed out of control.

That line of thinking was fueled by Obama’s choice for “Science Czar, John Holdren, who co-wrote a book about 30 years ago advocating forced abortions and mass sterilizations as a form of population control.

But as ObamaCare wound its way through Congress and eventually to the Supreme Court, it became clear that the extent to which Obama was willing to resolve the ‘hoodrat problem’ was through abortion funding and making it easier for teens to get abortions without parental approval.

Last May, an Atlanta mall security guard recorded a confrontation with two verbally abusive hoodrats, which descended quickly into pushing and shoveling. The mall guard, Darien Long, was forced to taser one of the women who punched Long and screamed profanities in full view of her small children.

“You better back it up!” warned the mall guard as the women’s toddlers chimed in with a chorus of “THAT’S WHY YOU GAY!”

The video footage, from a camera hidden inside Long’s vest, went viral, and now donations are pouring in from concerned citizens who want to supply Long with “better and more gear” to battle the mall scourge. Donors have now raised over $22,000 and counting for Long, Newsone.com reports.

I do not like the social system obama has set.because of that we must pay more taxes to feed the lazy part of the population.the money i have harshly earned at work is squandered for the laziest.it is an injustice.instead of that,he should tighten the restrictions to make them feel like working hard to live.otherwise the country turns into decadence.

Ok, good. Now sell 'em. Al-right! That answers your second question I think. Oh, I hate motorcycles actually and run them off the road or bump them out into the intersection at busy red lights.

Disneyworld wasn't the long-awaited theme park to those of us who felt invaded by it at first.
But most of us have gotten used to it and even like the talking mice and ducks. The small world has gotten a little annoying.
Geez Carol, must you lie about everything, WDW was developed in the late sixties finally opening in 71. How did the original complex infringe on your life? Well at least the life you've attempted to convey on this thread__retired disabled military dad yada yada. Most of the kids around Orange-Osceola were tickled to death that something besides cattle/citrus and dirt was coming to town__along with very cool, safe jobs for teens.

Did you know that the fellow that took over the top spot at WDW began working there as a busboy as a way to pay for his college?

Weasel,

Well, I had said that. But, I'm not someone you intended to reference.

Obama was so in touch with the operation to invade an allied country and kill bin Laden, he thought he'd be playing golf all goddam day that day. That's how much he was in touch with everything.

About 40 minutes before the SEAL team landed, it was leaked to Vallerie Jarrett that the operation was happening. She immediately issued an abort order with presidential authority (which Panetta ignored) and summoned Obama from the golf course. Obama didn't go to the operations center. He went straight to Vallerie Jarrett's office, which is immediately adjacent to the Oval Office.
That is the "longest 40 minutes" Obama references when he mentioned it. He didn't even have a clue the mission was going to happen.

You can bet that really pissed Vallerie Jarrett off. You can bet she would make sure there would not be another issue like that.
After that, Vallerie Jarrett had to make amends to the terrorists....

On the very next "secret" mission of SEAL Team Six, the helicopter was descending to the "secret" disembarkation point right into the sights of a lone Taliban waiting for them with a rocket launcher.
