Government-funded, neighborhood-based programs to better integrate the newly amnestied immigrants into society, including education centers and health care centers. A “federal solution” to ensure that the amnestied immigrants are treated “equitably” across the United States.
The re-creation of a 21st century version of FDR’s Works Progress Administration program within the Department of Labor that would oversee a massive new bureaucracy and millions of new federal jobs.
Specific plans for a National Infrastructure Bank.This entity would “evaluate and finance infrastructure projects of substantial regional and national importance” and would finance “transportation infrastructure, housing, energy, telecommunications, drinking water, wastewater, and other infrastructures.”
Wresting control of the military budget from Congress by attempting to place an “independent panel” in charge of military spending while slashing the defense budget in shocking ways.
The vastly reduced resources of the U.S. Armed Forces will be spread even thinner by using them to combat “global warming,” fight global poverty, remedy “injustice,” bolster the United Nations and step up use of “peacekeeping” deployments.
A new “green” stimulus program and the founding of a federal “green” bank or “Energy Independence Trust,” which would borrow from the federal treasury to provide low-cost financing to private-sector investments in “clean energy.”
Detailed plans to enact single-payer health care legislation controlled by the federal government.

Hairy Reid the HYPOCRITE. "The reason they have a democrat party is that these freaks have to have somewhere to go." -Guru

"Conservatives have begun accusing Reid of hypocrisy for his attacks on Romney. And the Las Vegas Review-Journal — in a somewhat different context — on Monday resurrected a 1974 statement in which Reid said:“Any man or woman who will not be completely candid about his or her finances does not deserve to be in public office.”

Asked about that statement at a news conference Monday in Nevada, Reid responded:“In 1974, I wasn’t in Congress.

“All you have to do is go look,” he added.“I file every year, every stock trade, every piece of land I buy, all the money I have, it has the value of my homes, it’s got it all there.”

Anyone that thinks America will allow anther Republican to become president is fooling himself.
Sweet Carole, Don't listen to the news, open your window and look around, drive around. How many pot holes did you hit today. How was the traffic. How much is a 1/2 gal of milk? I bet you don't have an air conditioner, why, because who can afford the HECO electricity bill? Gas? Whew! This getting crazy!!! didn't the guy who killed his ex girl friend get off for murder? Carole, this how democrats run their government. You can't blame Replubicans as Hawaii's been under democrats since forever, and this is the small picture. Imagine this country under democrats for another 4 years. But the democrats take care of the middle class you claim. Do you realize that next year a family with 3 children will pay about $1500 more in taxes because from next year you can only write of 500 instead of the 1000 per child? The feds could have given you money to fix your pot hole but they elected to give uku pile money to Egypt, which by the way, killed some Jews the other day from a county that is an ally to the US. I take it that you are a good but frustrated American. Bush screwed up in a lot of ways, but blaming him is not the solution...And for the record, they all screw up. However, obama is making Carter look smart!!!
So pretty Carole, open your mind, look at the big picture, it's different when you see it from all angles.

And the best stat of all is that the people in Alaska are not disengenuous turds like yourself. You should visit there, you would be graciously accepted, despite your obvious issues.
My but you seem kinda defensive once I bring up some facts about Alaska's economy for you.
You originally said "It's probably just a coincidence that Alaska's economy is one of the strongest and Hawaii's is among the weakest."
I went to numerous sources that showed otherwise, and I made the point that without the oil industry subsidizing Alaskans and their government, they'd have virtually no economy. And I have nothing against the state or the people in it. I know I'd be accepted there graciously because I know people who've lived or live there, in Homer, Anchorage, and Fairbanks, and they are great. And I'd much rather live in a state with a low gdp and fewer people and beautiful country (plus no state income tax!) but that still doesn't change the fact that the Alaskan government and economy (and residents) are largely subsidized by being lucky to sit on oil. Look at the amount of income the state government derives from oil. Even a, to use your term, "moron" could run a state with that kind of revenue flow. Wait, I think one did. lol.

Has Romney picked Gen David Petraeus to be his vice president? Report says Obama was overheard saying Mitt wants war hero as running mate

Drudge Report says Barack Obama was overheard saying Romney was courting the popular general
Petraeus was the most prominent military commander in the nation -- credited with stabilizing the Iraq War
Tension between the general, who is now CIA director, and Obama over draw down of troops in Afghanistan
Obama is thought to fear Petraeus' political power if he becomes a critic of the administration

Mitt Romney is courting Gen David Petraeus, the hero of the wars in both Iraq and Afghanistan, to be his vice presidential pick, it was claimed today.

The Drudge Report cites an unnamed source who overheard President Barack Obama talking about the Republican candidate's desire to name Petraeus as his running mate.

It remains to be seen whether the four-star general, who is currently the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, would even agree to such a proposition. In previous interviews he has said he has no interest in jumping into the political arena.

If Petreaus were tapped to be the Republican vice presidential nominee, it could shift the entire balance and momentum of the election -- electrifying Romney's campaign by picking a man regarded by most of the nation to be a war hero.

I don't really care about Romney's tax forms. Wouldn't surprise me if he didn't pay taxes. But just seeing his 2010 return, seeing he donated a smaller percentage of his income to charity than Obama that year, while making millions more, AND that he wants to lower his own tax rate as President, while Obama would raise his own to help the country says it all for me. I'll be voting for the the more selfless, generous guy, thanks.

guy on radio - a reporter- just now on Hannity says he went to Indonesia and got all the info you will ever need about obama being an Indonesian. He said he is bringing back the proof now to this country NOW. He says obama is 100% an Indonesian, and was never at Harvard, Columbia at all. Only at Occidental. Lots of people saw him there, but no one saw him at any other college. 400 college grades as reported in the Wall St journal who went to his graduating class college who all kept in touch said he was never there. No one ever remembers this guy who has this "charisma". lol!
