Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

I see the bulk of the clown act is here now. Let's run this by them again:

In case anyone is wondering why the United States has exactly zero credibility in the world today, here is an example of a sequence of events that cause every country in the world to think the United States if fullofshit:

The Secretary of State of the United States tells the president of Russia there are no Al Qaeda soldiers in Syria.

The president of Russia addresses the population of the world and calls the Secretary of State of the United States a liar, using that exact word.

Then, this headline appears:
"Al-Qaida spokesman claims rival rebel group in Syria 'stealing' group's battlefield successes"

Obama is the laughing stock of the world. Thus, the United States is the laughing stock of the world. Nothing Obama says is believed by anyone in the world. Nothing anyone in this administration says is believed by anyone in the world.
Zimbabwe has more credibility in the world than the United States. Any country you can name has more credibility in the world than the United States.

All of you dupes that made this happen, give yourself an applause. You have accomplished something that has never happened before in the history of civilization. You have reduced the credibility of the leading nation in the world from top to the very bottom in just one 4-year term of a president. This has never happened in the history of civilization before you Democrats made it happen here.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard's 2011 Killing Lincoln and 2012 Killing Kennedy have been on coast-to-coast bestseller lists, often simultaneously. Now the emphatically opinionated O'Reilly Factor star and history specialist Dugard combine their talents to recreate arguably the most fateful killing of all time: the crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth. For nearly two thousand years, that history-changing event has been discussed and debated. Now its story is retold in telling detail. Certain to be a bestseller.

In Killing Jesus: A History, Bill O’Reilly and writing partner Martin Dugard bring us their long-awaited “accurate account of not only how Jesus died, but also the way he lived.” This should settle two millennia of Christian debate. Although it lacks suspense (SPOILER ALERT: he dies), it’s a pretty good read and it’s fleshed out with tidbits about the ancient world.

But it should have been called The Gospel of Bill O’Reilly.

Here are some of the reasons why.

The methodology of this book is impossible to divine. O’Reilly says he wants “to separate fact from myth” but then never tells us how he does this. The rationale seems to be: include everything until you can’t, then plump for the good bits.

Sometimes O’Reilly includes two versions of the same story so that Jesus repeats the same action or says the same thing twice. In this book, Jesus overturned the moneychanger tables twice, for example. He really doesn’t like bureaucrats. On other occasions O’Reilly picks one particular Gospel (usually the longest version, rather than the earliest) and we never find out why.

To be fair, this isn’t just a problem with O’Reilly. In 1906 Albert Schweitzer observed that when people write lives of Jesus they inevitably end up describing themselves. It’s the key reason that some Biblical scholars think this whole project is bankrupt.

But without a method, Killing Jesus has all the critical rigor of your local church’s Nativity play.

Here you go a typical person under Obamacare.

The twenty-somethings and those in their early 30s who are most coveted by the insurance industry have a difficult decision to make as the health-insurance exchanges begin accepting enrollment in October: Should they pay the $100-or-so annual penalty for not having insurance or pay monthly premiums for coverage that might have high deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses?

The Congressional Budget Office projects that 6 million people of various ages will pay the tax penalty for not having insurance next year, the Affordable Care Act's first full year of implementation.

Some younger people argue they don't need insurance and will opt to pay the penalty, although by 2016 the fine jumps to $695 a year or 2.5 percent of taxable income, whichever is more.

Gudger said she is not in that category. A student at two-year Phoenix College who hopes to eventually earn a four-year environmental science degree, she just started a $13-an-hour, part-time job for a company selling solar panels. She has spoken with her mother about how the law will help her get insurance.

But she has little information about how the new federal marketplace — Arizona chose not to run a state program — will work, let alone the exact coverage the plans might provide. And while she may qualify for insurance through her employer in six months, that's a long way off for her and she wants to know her options now, and for the future.

"What I know is pretty much I believe in the next year or so everybody's going to have health care, whether you have kids or not," she said. "Everybody needs to have health care in some form or another."

Based on her income, Gudger will qualify for federal subsidies that will pay nearly half the premium for a midpoint "silver" plan, which covers 70 percent of costs and includes co-pays. An online calculator created by the Kaiser Family Foundation estimates her annual premium at $3,163 and the federal subsidy at $1,434, leaving her with a premium of $1,729, or $144 a month.

Even with the federal subsidies, that estimated cost is higher than what she hoped to see. And because she wants a decent insurance policy, not the bare-bones coverage cheaper plans offer, she's still not sure just how she'll proceed.

"If I was to be able to be offered affordable health insurance, I would say I would probably afford anywhere between $60 and $100 a month," Gudger said. "I wouldn't want to pay more than $75, considering I'd have to pay for prescriptions and copays if I have to see a doctor."

Tiny white elite dominates US political donor landscape – study
A tiny wealthy male elite is behind most of the biggest contributions to the 2012 election cycle in the US, a new study shows. The report comes as US Supreme Court considers whether it should strip a ceiling on political donations.

In a case the Supreme Court will begin hearing next Thursday, Shaun McCutcheon, a wealthy donor backed by the Republican National Committee, is challenging this aggregate limit on how much an individual may donate overall to candidates, parties and political action committees (PACs) over an election cycle. If the court strikes down the limit, it could prompt bigger contributions from those who already reached or were about to reach it, argues Public Campaign, a Washington-based advocacy group. Such a move would “put power even further into the hands of Wall Street bankers, billionaires, and K Street lobbyists,” it says.

The group analyzed campaign finance records and census demographic data to paint a likely portrait of those limit-restricted donors. The study included only individuals and not corporations, unions and other groups. The resulting portrait is that of a wealthy white male, possibly a billionaire from Wall Street or an influential lobbyist from K Street, the group says.

The Public Campaign says that 1,219 individual donors gave at least $105,300 – within 10 percent of the $117,000 aggregate limit – in 2012 campaign. Three of the five richest Americans – Larry Ellison, Charles Koch and David Koch – and one in every six US billionaires gave up to the contribution limit. Their donations totaled more than $150 million, with 56 percent going to Republicans and 41 percent to Democrats and the rest to independents and PACs, the study showed.

More than 80 per cent of the elite donors come from America’s richest 10 percent of neighborhoods as measured by per capita income. Wall Street and the financial sector dominate the ranks, accounting for 28 percent of the donors, the study says. One tenth of them are lawyers or lobbyists.

Less than one-in-50 of the top donors live in communities which are predominantly African-American or Hispanic, the study showed. Only about one quarter of the elite donors are female.

"You're going to end up having politics be e-Bay for millionaires and billionaires," said Nick Nyhart, president and chief executive of Public Campaign in a reference to the popular online shopping service.

But former Federal Elections Commission Chairman Brad Smith said worries about a small group of people having disproportionate influence are unfounded.

"Historically, this is how campaigns have always been funded. A handful of people, from their personal fortunes, kept the revolution going," he told Reuters.

Smith’s Center for Competitive Politics has filed an amicus brief in the case arguing against the contribution limits.

The 2012 election cycle was the most expensive on record, according to Washington research group The Center for Responsive Politics. It featured more than $6 billion in spending across federal campaigns.

YALTA coming to America Modern Yalta is a reflection of its sketchy past: a mix of promise and failure, royal luxury and Soviet underachievement, marble and concrete, class and kitsch, exclusive five-star hotels and collapsed infrastructure. Cruise ships rarely dock at its port. Its service industry is populated by Russian speakers who have no clue about European standards.
In competition with Egypt, Turkey and Tunisia, which often provide better quality service for less, Yalta muddles through thanks mainly to loyal visitors, nostalgic for the past.
In 1991, Mikhail Gorbachev was detained in his Foros residence outside Yalta when reactionary communists in the Kremlin attempted a coup to turn back perestroika reforms. Shut up in his dacha, Gorbachev, together with millions of other Soviet citizens, watched Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake," broadcast on all TV channels in place of news from Moscow.
YALTA
Yalta is part of Ukraine. Yalta is also part of Crimea. After Ukraine became its own country, the money required to maintain Yalta as it existed during the Soviet era just didn't exist anymore. Yalta is near Sevastopol, where Russia's Black Sea Fleet is headquartered. The Crimea is a favorite retirement location for senior officers of the Russian Navy. Before the breakup of the Soviet Union, money was put into the local economy to support the high-level activities associated with maintaining the Crimea as a focal point for the Russian Navy and a prominent location for world military power.
Today, that money just isn't available through the economy of Ukraine. Senior Russian naval officers are retiring in Saint Petersburg and Sochi instead of Sevastopol, Balaclava and Yalta.
Yalta will decay, naturally. It is no longer a center where disproportionate funds were allocated to for the purpose of maintaining a lifestyle for prominent Russians and an image to the world... what image the world was allowed to see.

Oh well, you're out of luck; the American people elected him twice; and you didn't know me when Bush was the President. The problem with a President with so called convictions is that he will be doggedly stubborn. Bush was hell bent on invading Iraq even before he was elected. Talk about stroking ego! That was Bush! The Teaparty is the enemy of the American people, and will be the downfall of the Republican party.

I didn't like Bush, but I never stooped to the level of vulgarity and disrespect that you have. Questioning someones parentage? Seriously? You're a sick woman.

About the above post I have two questions. She gets a subsidy of $1434 right. Say she is typical of 20% of the population. How much is that going to cost the federal government a year?
She has to pay $144 a month on a $13 an hour part time job. After all her other expenses what does she have left. Guess she just won't eat. Much.
