Question-are you satisfied with the way Obama is running the Harry Reid and Pelosi Congress?Do you know why they are unable to work out any programs?Do you understand it is a spending problem?Are you aware the sequestration was Obama`s plan?Are you aware this is just a lower increase in spending ,not a cut back from what it was?
From my position,you are correct--we do need to replace every one up there with Tea Party persons!!!Starting at the top and working down!
If the shoe fits white hair. We know it does, we went through all this in 2010 and I posted you many articles and pictures of your teaparty dividing your party and the country. Your teabagging repukes have halted any real progress since 2010 and will pay for that in the next Congressional election. Watch and see. Even the GOP is rallying against you, your buddy Rove for one. I know you are a faux box worshipper but despite what your teabagging repukes did the President was elected to a second term, Old Ditch Mitch failed at his 4 year quest to make him a "one termer". He will be gone too. Despite your PARTY OF NO, he did pretty good the first term with what he stepped into and apparently the rest of the country agrees. Let me repost this for you again. It was released TODAY, not 2010, 2011, 2012:

At least all the polls still show the President's approval rating is still high except of course for the faux box poll. Imagine that. hahaha

Polls show Republicans sinking on key issues

Polls show Obama with a firm lead over Republicans on immigration, gun control and the budget

According to two new polls, most Americans are in favor of President Obama’s approach to key issues like the budget, gun control and immigration.

A USA Today/Pew Research poll released Thursday shows Obama with a strong lead over Republicans in Congress on gun policies (45-39 percent), the budget deficit (45-38 percent), immigration (50-33 percent) and even climate change (47-26 percent
“On many of the issues, President Obama has staked out positions that seem to be closer to the public’s thinking than the positions Republicans have staked out,” said Michael Dimock, director of the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, in a statement on the poll.“The challenge for him is in building the public’s sense of immediacy on some of these issues, particularly on climate change and guns.”

In addition, the poll finds that only 22 percent of Americans even identify themselves as Republicans, almost a record low.
A Bloomberg poll from Wednesday had similar findings, with Obama’s approval ratings reaching a 3-year high at 55 percent, while just 35 percent have a favorable view of Republicans. From Bloomberg:
Americans by 49 percent to 44 percent believe Obama’s proposals for government spending on infrastructure, education and alternative energy are more likely to create jobs than Republican calls to cut spending and taxes to build business confidence and spur employment.

To add to Republican troubles: 43 percent of Americans blame Republicans for what’s wrong in Washington, compared with 34 percent who blame Obama.

Your consistent, I will give you that. Must suck to live in your dark world sipping tea worrying about the things faux box pounds in your little lemmings heads. Woe is me, they are coming to take our guns..haha Go back and look. You haven't changed your opinion and neither have I. I still have faith in America and her citizens. We will move FORWARD, not BACKWARDS. With or without you.

MAJORITY RULES.

There are many on here that have several socks, registered and unregistered, using several tech devices, i.e. pc, laptop, ipod, cellphones, company computer, etc...who like to go in and out of their socks to pump up their ideas, turn bad icons into good ones, and talk to themselves if no one else is on. Most you can identify if you have followed any thread with any length of time. There were a couple that just showed up like that ones with less than 100 post, joining a couple weeks ago, yet click on on the first time it appears and it will have hours like the "dweeb" proved when it first showed up. They think they are fooling people, and newcomers they might, but anyone who has been in this conversation for any length of time can read between the lines because they slip up and let you know by their words and structure of the post.
I know for a fact that white hair is not one of them. He has been here since the get go. I had lots of exchanges with him when this thread first started, I posted as TheyRLemmings and Repukes. After the elections I left. I haven't followed it daily like some, jump from one to the four statewide threads posting the same thing, but drop in for a good laugh. But when their words of hate, disgust, gloom and doom they spread and make all Americans look bad, mostly their two parties, the GOP/Teabaggers I usually shake my head and leave. Others, foreign country posters, terrorist, foreign and domestic, topix moderators check in and definitely the US Gov't monitors such hate sites. Most of the time I get a few laughs and leave. Sometimes I respond. I don't have the time these people have to sit 24/7 and play on topix, not to mention some of these people are nothing but paid shills.
I think it is very sad they take someone else's name or use multiple versions of one's chosen topix name i.e the "wtf's" posters. These people are the reason the country is the way it is, halted any progress in DC, and cannot adapt to it being 2013 and not the 1700/1800's. I tend to feel sorry for them more than anything. Dems/Reps are suppose to be OPPONENTS, not ENEMIES. The world and terrorist must really enjoy the division of this country....when did it really start? Oh yeah, about teabagging time.
I know you probably won't come back but if you do. I am sorry they took CB's name, as some people don't want to register and gain badges, send messages etc...
typical disrespect though, proven by their very posts.
Your bucket has a hole in it!
IE it doesn't hold water, some have been here quite a while and have multiple socks to assist them in the game (props, etc.), most of us just like the game, very few are as delusional as you appear to be.

No one may "copy" an already registered user name I think 1CB must have been an original, I did not find another, there are many, many, many jenny's Jenny's that's why she used ______Jenny______ and not 1Jenny or Jenny1, or etc, etc, etc.

At least it can be mended, whereas you just have the hole. Which sock are you normally. Registered since Oct 2009 with 89 comments, yeah right. I don't know about the other Jenny's, I have only seen one. Country bumkin on here earlier wasn't a registered name, but one like white hair, used without a avatar/registered. Truth hurts don't it? Some of us are on to your kind. Paid shills of many socks. Keep trying. I am sure you searched the country's thousands and thousands of topix threads to look huh? Too funny. The only ones on here that are delusional are you repukes and teabaggers. Keep trying. You all are quite amusing.

My questions stand unanswered.

I firmly agree,this is the U.S.of A. We will move forward.I simply do not always believe Fox News,nor CBN,Cnn,NCBN or what ever as for as news goes.Trying to discern what is really going on,is now not easy to do.When I happen to get on Madcow,then it is laugh- A- ble.But the ideology of small gov`t,get out of the way gov`t,is where I grew up,lived,and still wish to be.It seems to be going away.That I do resent.
Many of the gov`t programs seem to me to be burdened down with too many hand outs to too many doing nothing but holding the hand out.My ideology is totally in disagreement with what seems to be yours or Obama`s.Not that we out here could not get along and work out the equal handling of problems to better our Country,but in my opinion that is where the opposition Party has just said,too bad,We won.Shove it.
That seems also to be why we are going further in debt.The gun bills so far do nothing,none will pay much attention to them,just hide from any register,or confiscating if they ever go that far,and don`t think they will.I am opposed to amnesty for illegals,and am much in favor of securing the Border,protecting our own sovereignty.
The illegals,are illegal,they have caused this problem,we in our Country made the mistake of allowing it,We need immigration,just also need to know who,where,why,and other conditions.This is not an adequate dissertation,but is too long.

Good for you whitehair. I don't rely on any one news media and never watch pundit shows from either side. I have never watched Rachel Maddow in my life, Rush, Beck, who spin the facts for either party. I rely on all news outlets and form my own opinion. It's all good to want things as they once were but it isn't happening. It is a new world in this time and we have to adapt the best we can. However, if you repukes hadn't started two wars, and implemented programs without funding we wouldn't be as in debt as we are, couple that with the rich/corps/congress members sending the jobs overseas for cheap labor there wouldn't be as many jobless people needed some type of assistance to save their homes or feed their kids. It is your teaparty congress holding up progress and not moving the country forward due to their pledges of NOs. I don't like it either. The ones trying to work it out from both parties are being hampered by the likes of the randpaul teabaggers. This will cost you in 2014. We are not the country mostly made up of Americans like when we were growing up. It never will be again. The Statue of Liberty welcomes them, we as Americans with ancestors from abroad had a free land of opportunity. Yet, you bunch think they have no right to be here, aren't protected by the constitution when they become citizens, no freedom of speech, no freedom of religion, no, no, no.......get the picture. I have worked all my life and never once ask for assistance even if I could have, I had FAMILY to lift me up in hard times, but not once did I ever begrudge my fellow Americans a hand up with my taxes. These problems just didn't begin with President Obama, your party had 8 years to fix it, what did they do? Give me a break about the Obama blame. He stepped into a mess, he has done the best he could with no help from elected officials, it is a new age with different problems to deal with. I agree with your immigration thoughts and the border secure totally. I don't agree with everything on immigration. But I agree with most of what he has done to help ease the pain and turmoil the Bush/Cheney/Rumsfield administration caused. No one is coming to get your guns, but I agree you don't need an assault weapon to hunt deer. They want to control criminals and mentally sick from getting them and mass killing kids, college students, and movie goers. You are a bunch of frightened repukes, whining about the Dems, instead of doing anything to help or change it. Keep it up though. It just shaves years off your life stressing.

Rick Perry inherited a good economic situation from George W. Bush and turned it into a great economic boom. Barack Islam Obama inherits a AAA credit rating, low unemployment and manageable fuel prices, now our credit rating is so bad we can't even buy cheap furniture from a rent to own shop, our unemployment is at staggering levels and fuel...

Contrary to modern belief a country bumpkin can, in fact, spell and they are also articulate members of society.
Also, there ARE female members of this discriminated against group. The females are usually hotter than any other female from any other race/group and once acquiring the male that they chose for life never lose him because they are simply the best at what they do.....in every possible sense of the phrase.:-)

Average dude that managed to get a bumpkin female: My woman is the best that I ever had or could ever hope to have.
Average dude stuck with average girl: My chick is so *ucking superficial. She can't cook, clean, articulate or put out decent sex.
Average dude that managed to get a bumpkin female: Sucks to be you man....I got to go get some from my girl. Later.

If You Have ever Wondered What's Wrong in the United States These days;
READ THIS ONE PRINTED IN THE BEAUFORT N. C. PAPER FROM A "TRUE DEMOCRAT"
THEN WONDER "NO MORE"!!
There are NO words to describe this ... seriously...absoltely none!

ROTF!!!!

(Editor's note: The following Letter to the Editor, published in the Jan. 23 edition, has gone viral on the Web after a reader linked it to a Fox News Facebook page. It had received more than 4,000 comments and been shared more than 12,000 times by Tuesday morning.)

I have brought this here for your enjoyment and some explanations if any. Here is the entire text of the news clipping in article format. I will also post the image.
It is listed under the "More Modern Way Of Living" section.

Beaufort, N.C.
Jan. 17, 2013
TO THE EDITOR:

Republicans and "so-called" conservatives are at it again. They are claiming that the constitution gives people the right to have guns without the permission of the government. If that were true then how could New York and Chicago have laws against it?
We democrats are sick and tired of republicans constantly using the constitution to cover up their true plans, which are to make us all afraid of everyone else.
Our great president came from a civilized part of the country where there is strict gun control, and he is only trying to bring the benefits of that more modern way of living to the rest of us. I don't know the exact statistics, but I'm quite certain that Chicago is a lot safer that Morehead city, when it comes to gun violence.
But do Republicans and conservatives listen to the voice of reason?
No, Of course not. All they want to do is whine and complain about how gun control and wealth redistribution violate the constitution, as if the constitution were all that great, anyway. There are a lot of things that need to be changed about the constitution, I'd say, and president Obama needs to change it.
The Republicans are just trying to stand in the way, because the president is black. They even dared to question whether he was born in this country.
I think all this demonstrates that the constitution needs to be amended when it comes to the qualifications for being president.
Right now it says that a person has to be 35 years old and be a natural born citizen. Well, that is obviously unfair because there are a great many otherwise qualified people who cannot run for president because their mothers had to have a C section. But because the constitution was written a hundred years ago nobody even thought of the discrimination that would result from a doctor having to deliver a baby in this unnatural way.
Now that we Democrats are in control of the government, that's just one more thing we should change in our drive to make life fair.
Please withhold my name because I don't want to get crank calls.

It is you Repubs that continue to deny history. All of you act like the Depression of 2008 never even happened. You all act as though Bush did not start his Presidency with a balanced budget and end it with record debt. None of you remember $2 trillion looking for WMDs that were not there.

WASHINGTON — U.S. immigration officials laid out plans last year that would ratchet up expulsions of immigrants convicted of minor crimes as part of an urgent push to make sure the government would not fall short of its criminal deportation targets, new records obtained by USA TODAY show.
By the time the government's fiscal year ended in September, ICE had deported 225,390 criminal immigrants — a record, and well above the agency's target of 210,000. ICE has not specified how many of those deportations were based on minor offenses; the year before, it reported that more than a quarter of the people it classified as criminals had been convicted only of traffic offenses.
