LOL Defiant is once again exhibiting the Tea Intoxicated state of mind. DUH what numbers? Duh numbers? Yuk, Yuk, what are those??
Creatures such are they that a defunct Texas produces. Is it not the TRUTH. One who is so racist, that incest is the highest probability option for their propagation. Their dysfunctional intellect exemplifies that scenario is running rampant through out their tribes.
Symptoms of difficulty to focus, lapse of memory, repeating, inability to formulate comprehension, immaturity, dysfunctional, etc. etc..
What the hell are you babbling about now?. You are either suffering from early stages of dementia and/or you're reliving the days of 1970's psychobabble. Go take your meds and shut the hell up. What you have
to say doesn't amount to a piss hole in a Siberian snowbank.

LOL Obama is outsourcing to foreign corporation. Read it here. Hot off the press…..
Once again another example of an open intelligent leadership scenario of the Obama administration. Addressing the burdensome task of translating Obamacare into the culture of the bureaucrat’s, with their means and ways of administrating. Structuring of an infrastructure, that will suppress advantages and possible corruptions, by the insurance industries.
Obama administration hires a British Firm, that is already servicing our Defense Departments and our Intelligence agencies, Serco will now service the applications of the newly insured. 19 Million is expected in the first year of applications to be serviced.
Serco has been awarded a $1.2 Billion contract, stretched out over 5 years. Mr. Allen Hill states; “ This is a huge undertaking”“ We have some tight deadlines to meet” They will immediately hire on 1,500 employees.
Federal officials were concerned that insurance companies that are already working with the exchange procedures could have an unfair advantage, with their access to non public information. Serco will now oversee who is entitled to insurance health care and who are tax exempt from tax penalties on individuals that went without health care insurance.
Defense contractors facing across the board cuts for their services will find opportunity in the growing health care boon. Obamacare administration will require contractors to run a call center,“Data Service Hub” and Public Relations campaigns.
Presently The Government Accountability Office shows an expenditures of $394 million to various insurance companies. Three fourth of which went to the ten companies. Top three; CGI-Federal, CGI Group {$88mil}, Quality Software Services Inc.{$55mil} and Booz Allen Hamilton {$38mil}
A healthy nation makes for a healthy citizen. Healthy citizen makes for a healthy moral. A healthy moral makes for a healthy attitude. A healthy attitude makes for dreams to come true..
Oh good grief!. "A healthy attitude makes for dreams to come true..". WTF?
I think that you spent too much time at Disney World. It takes jobs and free enterprise without the governments boot on everyone's neck to raise the
standard of living. The Obama regime has other plans.

HA,HA, LOL what have you been drinking? Perhaps someone slipped you some TEA from their POT. Now are you refuting my numbers? Which are not ACTUALLY my numbers. Pedro gets that credit. Here let me refresh those numbers for you once again. Perhaps the purple haze has lifted.
Lets go to the bottom line. Just which of the two party’s is the party to party with? Lets put them to the numbers. Going back 80 years. That will expose as to who is who a little bit more clearly than hyped up foxy journalist could ever do or dysfunctional opinionated commenter’s that infect this thread with their loose thread ideologies.
A mathematical investigation was produced by the statisticians Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov that exposes the superior performance of the stock markets under democrats. That this is but one example of the democrat’s superiority, as there is more.
Their study encompasses 80 years. Study demonstrates systematically and positively surprised by democratic policies. Comparing the stewardship of the two parties. They calculated each economic indicator as an “annual average” during the democrats and republicans of their economic stewardship of their 40 years each. Turns out to be a landslide for democrats providing beneficial returns to the nation. One example; Democrat’s presided over a very respectable average annual compound return of 9.60% during their 40 years where in as republicans averaged a dismal 0.58%.
Consider this; a 401K plan invested in stocks and had a value of $100,000 at the beginning of the 40 years. Democrats would accumulate in compound interest $ 3,912,210 where in as republicans would only produce $126,027 . Another example; “IF” an employee were to invest $5,000 per year into their 401K for 40 years in a democratic stewardship the employee would have $1,985,526 in the bank. Where as the republican would produce a dismal $224,375.
That republicans advocate that they are good for businesses is false as compared to the democrats
Another interesting fact emerges within the statistical study. The income gap between the 99% and the top 1% has widened considerably under republicans. Averaging .49% as compared to the democrat’s .41% That is to say under republicans the income gap in 40 years, widened by 19.6% and narrowed 16.4%. Resulting in a 36% difference.
LOL on debt republicans increased debt by 2.5 times greater than that of the democrats. Republicans $7.1 Trillion vs. the democrats $2.8 Trillion.
GOP’s Self-Proclamation for economic dominance; in fact it is a misnomer to call the GOP a fiscal responsible party and or a smaller government, when in fact the contrary is true.
Obama’s administration indicates he sought the great leaders on these issue. Eccles and FDR, Clinton and O’Neill to do what is most productive for our nation.
Now pass on this one small example of the fallacies of the republican’s erroneous policies and deceptions..
"Obama’s administration indicates he sought the great leaders on these issue. Eccles and FDR, Clinton and O’Neill to do what is most productive for our nation."

Bwahahahahahaha!

Defiant with this comment ONCE AGAIN exposes his complete lack of comprehension on the subject he is commenting on. Try to do a little bit of research. Now I know this will be extremely difficult for you so I’ll give you a few days. Go back and REREAD Truths comment that I was commenting on. There you will find Truth never mentioned “ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT”. Before butting in with your callow comprehension do at least try to seek some knowledge on the subjects you comment on. Something as simple as this one is; and you mess it up!

The actual results speak for themselves. The Obama regime sucks.
Ho Hum defiant’s memory has failed him once again. You can see this when his comments keep repeating like some robo commenter. Perhaps we have given him too much credit for being literate!
Right Wing cries too fast, too fast, too fast slooooow down..“It Is All About The Economy Stupid”
The Congressional Budget Office said the 2013 fiscal deficit would fall to about $642 billion, or 4 percent of G.D.P., about $200 billion less than it estimated just three months ago.
WASHINGTON — Since the recession ended four years ago, the federal budget deficit has topped $1 trillion every year. But now the government’s annual deficit is shrinking far faster than anyone in Washington expected, and perhaps even faster than many economists think is advisable for the health of the economy.
The agency forecast that the deficit, which topped 10 percent of gross domestic product in 2009, could shrink to as little as 2.1 percent of gross domestic product by 2015 — a level that most analysts say would be easily sustainable over the long run — before beginning to climb gradually through the rest of the decade.
"Revenues have been strong as the economy has outperformed a bit," said Joel Prakken, a founder of Macroeconomic Advisers, a forecasting firm based in St. Louis.
Over all, the figures demonstrate how the economic recovery has begun to refill the government’s coffers. At the same time, Washington, despite its republican political paralysis.
Republicans say perhaps too successful. Given that the economy continues to perform well below its potential and that unemployment has so far failed to fall below 7.5 percent, many economists are cautioning that the deficit is coming down too fast, too soon.
“It’s good news for the budget deficit and bad news for the jobs deficit,” said Jared Bernstein of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.{R}
“I’m more worried about the latter.” OOOHHH scary..
Now Obama is showing his democratic colors of success in financials. With the government running a hefty $113 billion surplus in the tax payment month of April, according to the Treasury, analysts now do not expect the country to run out of room under its debt ceiling.
The $200 billion reduction to the estimated deficit comes not from the $85 billion in mandatory cuts known as sequestration, nor from the package of tax increases that Congress passed this winter to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. The office had already incorporated those policy changes in its February forecast.
Republicans want Congress to agree for this year to serving as a partial brake on the recovery, cutting government jobs and preventing growth from accelerating to a more robust pace, many economists have warned. The International Monetary Fund has called the country’s pace of deficit reduction “overly strong,” arguing that Washington should delay some of its budget cuts while adopting a longer-term strategy to hold down future deficits.{R} Typical, small minds for small growth..
CBO is revising its estimates for the current year, the budget office also cut its projections of the 10-year cumulative deficit by $618 billion. Those longer-term adjustments are mostly a result of smaller projected outlays for the entitlement programs of Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare, as well as smaller interest payments on the debt. The C.B.O. has quietly erased hundreds of billions of dollars in projected government health spending over the last few years.
It did so again on Tuesday. In February, the budget office projected that the United States would spend about $8.1 trillion on Medicare and $4.4 trillion on Medicaid over the next 10 fiscal years. It now projects it will spend $7.9 trillion on Medicare and $4.3 trillion on Medicaid.

Ah here we go into the summer of 2013. Liberals are rolling out the barrels for fun and singing on sunshine. Resting in shaded pools of the cool, cool changes evolving. A higher evolution to our politics’ maturity is budding forth once again. In the past decade “We The People” have examined ourselves and found us wanting to step out of the gloom and doom scenarios of the traditionalist conservative views of the past.
Shackles of prejudice are falling to the ground. Mary Jane is now identified with beneficial outcomes. Illegal immigrants are observing a light at the end of the tunnel. Gays are growing in their freedoms to be gay. America is awakening to be once again the land of the diverse melting pot it once was. Rejuvenating strengths that was always their fundamental strengths‘.
Demographics of the ideologies of Jim Crow, John Birch or the hyped up McCarthy are fading into the archaic dust bins of our history. Another dark chapter of our growing pains.“We The People” have reached a majority that choose to distance themselves from the gloom and doom policies that promote these dysfunctional callow ideologies.
51% are now in favor of gays to be gay. 72% agree that this is inevitable. Mary Jane up 11 points from 2010. Previously only less than 1/3 comprehended its beneficial factors. This according to Pew Polls. CBS/N.Y. Times poll have discovered 83% favor a path to citizenship for the illegal immigrants. 20% higher than the 2007 Pew Polls. Which was the last time this issue was addressed.
Business scholar Fariborz Ghadar, from the Center Of Strategic and International Affaires explains what is occurring. Quote “ Whether it’s war on terror or the recession or this or that; Society then reacts to those periods and change results” he goes on to say “The younger generation is getting more accepting, the pace of change is much faster, data is available to us more quickly. We’re more plugged in to the world around us and its combining to allow people to develop their own opinions and be open to others”.
1980’s generation grew up with 911 and the gloom and doom of the past of the bushwhacking days. They are now 18 to 32. Here in lies the moving force for the abrupt change in right wing polarization to left wing polarization.
Similar to the 60’s after the Nam episodes. Social rights sprouted, as it is now with the 80’s generation.
Today we have instant communication and knowledge at our finger tips. Fraudulent propaganda schemes of our past prejudices become exposed. Observe the effect on programs such as “Weeds, Modern Family and Ugly Betty” to name a few. They stimulate diversity and liberalization. Advancing the goals of the broad open minded liberal, as opposed to the narrow close minded conservative. There will continue to be gloomy times. They however are advocating their own demise with each experienced generation that follows. Growing in intellect and controlling, the gloom and doom scenarios. Science will soon render these gloomy days for agricultural benefits. Removing them from authority based organizations. Obama once said “ Each successive generation creates a new space for peace and tolerance and justice and fairness” Right to the point.

Mendacity in politics is an argumentative point. That both parties make use of it is to expected and required. It is one of the nature’s of the beast of politicians. How I evaluate our political parties is not by some blind allegiance. Did that once, as a republican, which exposed to me the errors of blind alliances to any party or individual. I base my support to those that I perceive to be the greater good for our humanity.
Distributions of our laborers productivity is one example of how I measure the parties or our leadership. Those advocating Austerity policies raises a red flag . Those that advocate total equality, raise a red flag. Liberal International Free Trade Markets will be the future. Responsible well regulated capitalism will be a major component. It will NOT be the only factor that will be the eventual unified globalization of our humanities.
Observing both parties for the past 80 years on these measures and responsibilities exposes as to which party here in the USA has been the most beneficial to those measurements. Sponsoring a mature path to our equality and inequality. Presently republican party has accelerated to far to inequality producing insecurity. Here and abroad. That is not to say ALL republicans. There are some that retain the vintages of the Grand Old Party. Some I still have voted for.
Now the statisticians at Pedro Santa Clara and Rosen Valknaov have evaluated the two parties on various factors for leadership for the past 80 years a couple of years ago Each president is evaluated and reduced to the numbers. Republicans did not fair well for the most part. Especially in the last 40 years. I have a book in my library on that subject. If your interested. Good reading. I was surprised, as were the statisticians’ were, in what they discovered. Think of it, as a who done it, murder mystery novel…. Leave your emotions back on the dock. Sail out into the crystal clear blue oceans of reality.
Here is a thought; Examine a well regulated capitalist system and compare it to ours. World Bank does it. Start with Sweden, UK, France and most Scandinavian countries.“IF” memory serves me, the World Bank rates us 37th in being a well regulated capitalist system. Thus you have 36 examples, that have superior methods of capitalism.
