Obama has lost major players in the left-leaning media. On Friday the NYTimes editorial board announced that "the administration has now lost all credibility." The Huffington Post led with the image above. And at the Daily Kos, a site that exists specifically to elect Democrats, the most-recommended post was titled "Americans Are Outraged Because in Voting for Obama, They Thought They Were Rejecting Bush."

The problem is we have Fascist in the Republican party, as well as the Democratic party. It is not the Democrats or Republicans that are enemies of our Constitution, it is Fascism and Corporatism. It is the Corporations and the Military Industrial complex that is running this country, not the president. Anyone who thinks differently are fools who can't see the whole picture.

I'll admit it, I'm a racist. I think that Nazi Germany had the right idea when they exterminated the jews, negroes, etc.... I wish that my neighborhood was composed of all white people. I don't even like my black cat, but my family likes it. Of course when I'm out and about I have to hide my true colors. I really like to victimize women that don't conform to my stereotype. I love reading The Communist Manifesto. I hope that someday Stalin will rise again! Cheers!

NSA has massive database of Americans' phone calls
By Leslie Cauley, USA TODAY
The National Security Agency has been secretly collecting the phone call records of tens of millions of Americans, using data provided by AT&T, Verizon and BellSouth, people with direct knowledge of the arrangement told USA TODAY.
The NSA program reaches into homes and businesses across the nation by amassing information about the calls of ordinary Americans — most of whom aren't suspected of any crime. This program does not involve the NSA listening to or recording conversations. But the spy agency is using the data to analyze calling patterns in an effort to detect terrorist activity, sources said in separate interviews.

Outrageous, huh?
That was published on May 11, 2006. SEVEN YEARS AGO!
Where was the outrage, rightwingers?
Where were your calls for impeachment?
Obviously you all were totally cool with this same practice seven years ago. Why all the outrage today? What's changed?
Since you went into hiding I'll ask again.

Yep, outrageous then, but now it's on steroids under Obama.

Outrageous, huh?

It wasn't right then and it sure isn't right now, so what's your opinion on the now?

Record 23,116,441 households on food stamps
The number of American households on food stamps reached a new record high in March, according to new data released by the Agriculture Department.
The March numbers the USDA released Friday reveal 23,116,441 households enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or food stamps, each receiving an average monthly benefit of $274.30....
SNAP has been in the news in recent years and months as the program’s rolls have ballooned and the cost has quadrupled since 2001 and doubled since President Obama took office.

You are paying Wal-Mart employees’ wages. Yep, you.
The notoriously stingy company cuts every corner to keep prices low, and one of those corners is the payroll. It pays employees peanuts (and then cheats them of their overtime peanuts, but that is another story). By “peanuts” I mean an average of $8.81 per hour.
Many of these workers need welfare to survive. Thus you, the taxpayer, are paying part of Wal-Mart employees’ incomes, to the tune of between $900,000 and $1.75 million per store, and about $5,815 per employee. The welfare programs Wal-Mart workers rely on include Medicaid, subsidized housing and SNAP (aka food stamps — contrary to popular belief, over 40 percent of SNAP recipients live in a household with a wage-earner).

I agree...
Interesting expose on WalMart....

How about the Food & Service Industry....where we the patron make the payroll for the owner...
They normally offer no healthcare...some do offer limited high deductable plans but most offer none...
So they pay less than minimum wage and count on us to supplement the payroll with tips.
But I guess were gullible because we do leave tips know the owners aren't paying them well...what a deal.

You don't like it but what is it that you don't like about the now part? This is a very serious scandal brewing that has affected every person in this country and all you can say is you don't like it?

Democrats and people of all parties are condemning Obama over this. How do you feel about having someone monitor everything you and you family consider private? This is above and beyond what Bush used it for. I just can't imagine why anyone would feel comfortable or accept someone keeping files on them.

It wasn't right then and it sure isn't right now, so what's your opinion on the now?

You're not able to defend Obama's actions on this one are you? I understand Danny.

I'm not sure what you're fishing for.

I was opposed to the Patriot Act when it was passed. I was opposed to Bush's warrentless wiretaps. I was opposed when the Congress made those wiretaps legal. I've been opposed to Obama continuing those same Bush policies. I'm opposed to trading too much privacy for security.

But the bottom line is that Obama didn't do anything illegal and the Congress has been fully briefed and approved what's happening. If you want to be outraged - be outraged at the people who passed the law that allows the President to do this. If this puts pressure on Congress to change the law - good! I hope it does.

But your criticism and all the criticism from the right on this issue is pure hypocrisy. This is the program you wanted. This is the level of security your party demanded. To act like Obama is doing something unprecedented is more than hypocritical - it's pure mendacious partisan posturing.
