We love how you throw out statistics straight from the Obama propaganda-rhetoric machine like they're scripted in stone and cannot be challenged.

As for the rest of your post, good. Does this mean you're going to STHU about it and post something else?

I would like to see them explain how the law is only discriminating against African Americans if it APPLIES to ALL voters.

TRUCKERS ROAR TO D.C. WITH IMPEACHMENT MOVEMENT
'The goal is to wake up the sleeping giant, the people of America'

Facebook tries to shut truckers down
On Sept. 22, Facebook removed the truckers’ Facebook page,“Truckers to Shutdown America,” which had accumulated 86,000 “likes” within days of its launch.

“Political opponents attacked the Truckers to Shutdown America page within days, and they exploited a little known (to the public) feature on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter called ‘community standards’ flagging, which allows them to instantaneously shut down an account on these social media platforms,” the truckers group explained in a press release.

“[A]n administrator of the page offended someone by saying,‘God bless you, and God bless America.”

Do they not know they are messing with fire?
If the Truckers deem it so they could shut down the whole Country. Which I for one would applaud!
I will support the Truckers anyway I can including praying for them.

I drove a long nose International with the Owner Operator package hauling mail when I first retired out of the military.

My respect and heartfelt thanks go's out to the men and woman that haul this Country's life blood across the nation.

Fantastic! Good for the truckers! America's backbone!!! Finally, somebody with a backbone!! As for Facebook, I'm done. Closed my account. Everybody should do the same. Great they're also marching on Facebook's HQ. This is what the US is all about! As for shutting down the Facebook info - that's what liberals do!!!! They're snakes!! Nasty, scheming, devious bastards. Leftists can't stand the light of day, a constitution, or allow anyone to disagree with them. They're like gnats!

Truckers do not run a empty load, pick up every illegal you find (at least thirty per truck) and once in DC, dump them and let congress take them in. They want them in the US so bad, wanting us to give them a free ride, then do so,

Pick up; any town USA,

drop off: Washington DC, suburbs of Arlington, and any town in MAryland.

one way ticket only.

Be sure to drop a few loads at Martha Vinegary, any or all golf courses in the DC area.

I don't know if Obamacare will work. It would be a miracle if it did with the Republican party doing everything in their power to sabotage it. I do know that the only thing the Republican party is offering in its place is economic terrorism. It's obvious that they're willing to hold our country hostage for the next three years rather than have ANYTHING be successful while Obama is president.
What's logical about that?

All questions above are obviously rhetorical since the concept of logic is foreign to right wing morons, rendering your answer meaningless.

Why should the right waste any more of their time crafting legislation when the only thing Obama will listen to is himself?

Don't even try to pretend Obama is bipartisan or some kind of democratic ambassador when it's obvious he's neither.

His objective is to make republicans irrelevant. Period.

Is Massachusetts' health care reform a success or failure?
30 06 09 - 12:13

In poll, Mass. voters pan health reform
By State House News Service - Boston Herald

Only 26 percent of likely voters in Massachusetts believe health care reform has been a success and just 21 percent believe reform has made health care more affordable, according to newly released poll results.

The Rasmussen Reports poll of 500 likely Massachusetts voters, taken in April, also found only 10 percent said the quality of health care is getting better under the reform law rules here.

Most of those polled on April 16, 2009 said they weren’t sure whether reform was a success or failure (37 percent), that there’s been no change in health care affordability under reform (44 percent) and that health care quality is about the same (53 percent).

The poll was taken before talks stirred in Washington about a national health care reform push and before a wave of news in Massachusetts about difficulty affording the coverage expansions authorized under the 2006 reform law.

Obama's Department of Justice lawyers will sue North Carolina in Federal Court today. However, before they can challenge the law's strict photo ID provisions, they will have to produce their photo IDs to enter the Federal Courthouse.

Why are they not suing Federal Courts to challenge their strict photo ID procedures for admission?

Sure stupid, that's why we've had the first communication between the presidents of these two countries since 1979 and we have the best chance of resolving this issue that there's been in years.
Your implacable hatred of President Obama makes you completely unable to give him any credit for anything. Hatred makes people stupid Carol and you're a prime example of that.
You can make all of the hate filled and demeaning comments you want about the President Carol but the fact remains that he's the president and you're an ignorant nobody.

Damn right it discriminates!
How else would the Melowese Richardsons and Virginia McMillans of the country get to defend Obama’s "right to sit as president of the United States" and ensure her "vote was counted correctly" if they can't vote half a dozen times!?!?

You know, Dumbass Ray, if you want to plead the case for voter photo ID, you should provide examples where a photo ID would have stopped that fraud.

In your examples, both would have occurred with the photo ID law.

The vast majority of Massachusetts residents are satisfied with their healthcare under the state's 2006 reform law, though costs and appointment wait times remain an issue, according to a new poll.

Eighty-four percent expressed satisfaction with their healthcare, citing the quality of the care or "good access," according to the Massachusetts Medical Society, a statewide physician group that conducted the poll.

Another three in four said accessing the healthcare they need is not difficult, though the share of patients who had to wait a month or more to see a primary care doctor was up 7 points since last year, to 28 percent.

The survey noted that the wait times were less of a problem for existing patients, or those that had seen a primary care doctor in the previous year, and for patients with serious conditions.

The Massachusetts healthcare reform law, or "RomneyCare," inspired ObamaCare. The two share several key components, including an individual mandate to provide insurance and a marketplace where the uninsured can purchase coverage.

Monday's poll sheds light on how Massachusetts residents have adjusted to the state's reform since it was passed in 2006.

The survey also suggested several areas that still need improvement in the state's healthcare system.

Perhaps you cannot define the term "radical" as understood in the English language.

As opposed to the current administration that remained ignorant because the shunned education and substituted indoctrination of Marxist communism and Saul Alinsky's tactics and strategies to eliminate capitalism and institute communism, and joining Al Qaeda and placing the Wahhabist Muslim Brotherhood in policy-making positions in the White House, and helping the Taliban retake control of Afghanistan, and helping the Al Qaeda invasion Syria and helping them in their war to take control of that country and acquire the chemical weapons there.

The radicals are in the White House. The rest of the country is comprised of normal Americans.

If you look at those who do not currently have a photo ID, a good proportion are poor. The poor is disproportionately Black (Democratic voters).

Republican leaders n PA admitted that the voter ID law favors Republicans.

The law may apply to all but t really only affects those without photo ID.

House Republican Hostage-Takers Are Unfit to Govern

They’re threatening an economic shutdown that will cause financial hardship and even ruin for millions of Americans.

Obama will not—he cannot—negotiate with a roving band of anarchists who say,“Build our oil pipeline or the troops don’t get paid. Give us tax cuts for the rich or seniors don’t get their Social Security checks.”

I spent a week in Madrid. The cafes offer seating outside on the sidewalk where one can sit and drink and smoke. Also, it is where the beggars can just walk right up to your table and make themselves at home, putting you in the position of being rude to make them get up out of the chair they just plopped their useless ass down in to insert themselves into your conversation and beg/coerce for money.
A young black American (23 years old) did just that. I had a conversation with him, which I told him he isn't a child and he needs to grow up and go to work. In the conversation, he asked me what I thought of Obama.
My answer:
"You are a 23 year-old man who won't work and are walking around Madrid begging for money. I think both of you are the same."
He didn't have much to say after that.
I didn't give him any money, although I am almost always very generous. But, I recognize the difference between being down on your luck, and being downright irresponsible and lazy.

That can be the only explanation.

Customers buy something. The money goes into my account. It becomes my money. If I don't pay my corporate taxes, I go to jail, not my customers.

Whn Joe Blow gets paid, his paycheck goes into his account. It becomes his.

If Corporations don't pay taxes then people don't pay taxes.
