House Speaker Boehner is so outraged that his face, normally normally glowing orange, is starting to turn red and when that happens, watch out! America’s going to get a good dose of democracy. Ah, good times.Here's another one AL:
House Speaker John Boehner said the Republican-led chamber will move to repeal President Barack Obama’s health-care overhaul law if the U.S. Supreme Court doesn’t strike it down.
“Unless the Supreme Court throws out the entire Obamacare bill, the House will move to repeal all of it,” Boehner, an Ohio Republican, told reporters in Washington today.
"Fox News Sunday" is heading to Louisville, Ky. Jack Conway, Kentucky's attorney general and the Democratic candidate for Senate , and Rand Paul, the Republican nominee and son of Representative Ron Paul, Republican of Texas, have agreed to a live debate on "Fox News Sunday" on Oct.3 at 9 a.m. (Eastern time).

The GOPers are at it again, remember when those pillars of fiscal responsibility spend $80 Million only to see him acquitted! Every President, including Washington, has tried to keep information from Congress. In modern times, Richard Nixon invoked executive privilege six times, half of those over the Watergate investigation. President George W. Bush, also six times. And Bill Clinton, 14 times trying to fend off GOPer bloodhounds!

So you say you love freedom, but did you protest when George W. Bush repealed habeas corpus and posse comitatus, rights first guaranteed by the Magna Carta in 1215.
You say you’re in favor of smaller government, but you never protested when Gdub expanded it. Or when G. H.W. Bush expanded it. Or when Ronnie Reagan expanded it. Or when Nixon expanded it. Or when Eisenhower expanded it.
You say you’re in favor of democracy, but when Gdub was selected by the five members of the Supreme Court (installed by Republican presidents), one of them Dick Cheney’s close personal friend, you never protested.
You say you’re in favor of openness in government, but you never protested when Dick Cheney set the nation’s energy policy in secret in collaboration with BP, Exxon/Mobil, Halliburton, and the nation’s wealthiest energy companies, or when Cheney and his friends engineered the energy crisis in California and profited hugely.
You say you’re patriots, but you never protested when Cheney ordered the “outing” of a covert CIA agent during a time of war — which U.S. law considers treason. You never protested when the Bush administration tacitly admitted that Gdub was AWOL during a time of war which U.S. law considers a felony.
You never protested when Dubya let Osama escape, when the WMDs turned out to be nonexistent, when the link between Osama and Saddam turned out to be a lie.
You say you believe in human dignity, but you never protested when you found out we were torturing people, some of whom were innocent of any crime.
You say you’re in favor of fiscal restraint, but you never protested when George W. Bush took a budget surplus and a national debt of $5.7 trillion to a gigantic deficit and a national debt of more than $9 trillion.
You say you share the values of the Founders, but you never protested when you found out the Republican government was illegally wiretapping American citizens.
None of this made you angry; none of this frightened you. But you finally got angry when your lawfully elected representatives decided that all Americans deserve the right to see a doctor if they’re sick.
I need to get some of that health care you don’t want me to have – you make me sick!

Thank you Mr. President
Auto sales have been a bright star in this struggling economy. Month after month, dealerships have reported surprisingly strong demand, even though consumers are still skittish about making big purchases. The industry is on pace for 13.8 million light-vehicle sales this year! People are flocking to the most popular models, lured by their utility and fuel efficiency. The Chevy's Volt is outselling the Corvette, with nearly 7,100 delivered to dealers this year, compared with about 5,500 for the Corvette.

Our spending has exceeded some constitutional limits in that we're spending Federal dollars, that have been taken from the taxpayers, and spending them on unconstitutional programs.
The problem with your metaphor of the single radio station that plays the same song, well, it's the only one that will work to turn things around. It's the only one that ever has.
Still with the same old throwing grandma off a cliff. Let me ask you something, there is no money in social security. Obama has taken out 500 Billion from Medicare, not the Republicans. The "security net" programs have to change, those abusing it need to prosecuted or at least have their taxpayer checks ended. It's not sustainable-the austerity you're seeing in Europe is the result of no one wanting to find solutions to the welfare systems-since it would mean doing the un popular thing of means testing and cutting benefits and those who can qualify for them.
Besides, there haven't been any spending CUTS in Europe, only raising taxes. There's a big difference between austerity "pledged" and austerity implemented, as it appears its more about raising taxes than cutting spending.
Obama has decreased wealth inequality. But just like every other socialist and community policy, he has done it by destroying the wealth of others and lowering everyone's wealth. How about implementing growth policies and reforms that will enlarge the economic pie and create wealth to allow those who strive to reap what they sow?
#42489 Jun 21, 2012
It's just more smoke and mirrors.
Consider your use of the Chevy Volt as an example. You're absolutely right that there have been more Volts "delivered" to dealers. The dealers are ordering the Volts b/c they have been ordered to do so by GM. Not b/c anyone is actually buying the things. Chevy actually SUSPENDED Volt sales starting this past March b/c there was zero demand for the things.
I wouldn't be so keen at crowing car sales as good news. It seems to be another "bubble" similar to the housing market of '08. Ally Financial (formerly GM Financial) has been making loans along the same guidelines of the "no job, no income, but got a pulse? we can finance you!"
Ally Bank offers 72 month paper at 150% of invoice (to cover deficiencies in the trade) at 3% to credit scores as low as 520. Auto dealers reportedly think Ally is “insane” for underwriting such poor quality auto loans, but they are pleased that volume has increased by 20% as a result of the reformatted auto loan program.
Come on Frank, open your eyes man and take a look around every once in a while.

Just goes back to the 2 ways to enslave a nation...one is by sword, the other by debt. Obama has accomplished something no other president has accomplished...he is enslaving us at warp speed. I guess being arrogant and impatient when it comes to dealing with us peons has worked out rather well for Barack Hussein Obama.
#42491 Jun 21, 2012
The Tea Party movement started gaining traction under Bush, plenty of people who protested and spoke up against the Patriot Act, funny how the ones on the Left aren't criticizing it, or Obama and his fellow Dems expanding it even farther-you sure it's the Right that's the one being hypocritical?
So, two wrongs make a right? Besides, all things in context, still, it's been creeping towards big government a little at a time, Obama's mistake has been throwing the frog into the pot with the water boiling, instead of slowly turning up the temperature. The NDAA, the power grabs of the EPA, all the "quantitative easing", etc topped off with the latest being illegal amnesty with a stroke of the dictatorial pen all while refusing to turn over documents related to the Gun Walker program. The arrogance of Obama and the Dems in power make the expansion of government and the loss of our rights and freedoms to obvious for even the dense to ignore.
lol, still harping that "bush stole the election"? On November 12, 2001, the Times reported: "Even under the strategy that Mr. Gore pursued at the beginning of the Florida standoff — filing suit to force hand recounts in four predominantly Democratic counties — Mr. Bush would have kept his lead, according to the ballot review conducted for a consortium of news organizations … The media consortium included The Times ... "
I feel like I may see you one day walking around with a tin foil hat on your head.
Valeria Plame? Cheney? lol, it was Richard Armitage at State, and it was known since the beginning. http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/219836...
Pretty sure Dan Rather lost his job running with that make believe story, perhaps you should read up on it, most of this link cites things from factcheck.org http://old.nationalreview.com/owens/owens2004...
Osama escape? It was Bush's policies that led to Obama's ability to have him assassinated. There was no active WMD program, but a couple of tons of yellow cake uranium, 500+ chemical shells, weaponized strains of bacterial and virus samples and more. There were the multiple UN resolutions as well as Congressional authorization, that cited more than just the threat of WMD's, it also talked of states supporting terrorism, not that Iraq was behind 9/11

I "meant" what I said....BIG boy.....
#42494 Jun 21, 2012
I think we'll differ on what exactly counts as torture to begin with, water boarding is perfectly ok by me. As for being "innocent", name one person water boarded who was innocent. Perhaps if you're talking about "convicted" of a crime, that may be true, but Obama won't use civil courts or military tribunals, so....keep on turning the other cheek.
Plenty of Republicans and Conservatives were raging against Bush pushing through Medicare Part D, the Education Bill and the bailouts being the crowing achievement-of course, Democrats were screaming at Bush the whole time for not spending MORE on those programs and even more to boot. Which considering the majority of the Education bill was written by Democrats who have controlled Congress since the '06 elections, and thus, spending...who are we piling the blame for deficits on again?
So, our law enforcement agencies were listening in on calls made from the US to KNOWN terrorist, and from KNOWN terrorist to people in the US...and that's illegal? While under Obama he's expanded the program even further internationally as well as purely domestically. <yawn> sorry, you're boring me with your political hypocrisy.
Lawfully elected? see the previous post about the whole ginned up "Bush stole the election" farce. Though, it would be interesting to see the Supreme Court resolved the "natural born citizen". Not about Obama's birth certificate, but concerning that Obama's father was not an American citizen.
Frankie boy, Obama's giving us all free health insurance, not health care. We're all going to have coverage, but that doesn't mean you're actually going to receive any kind of treatment lol
Look at how well the government runs the health care of our Veterans, or of that of the Native Americans. Social Security in bankrupt, so too is medicare/medicaid (in 3-8 years depending on what numbers the CBO uses), do you REALLY think you're going to get health care from the same government that is failing at the much simpler government programs?
If it was about providing health insurance and coverage, we would have allowed competition across state lines, ended coverage mandates for things like acupuncture etc that drive up base costs, instituted health saving accounts similar to 401(k)s, and found a solution to the unsustainable costs of illegal immigrants using our hospitals as their family physician-and those are the easiest, simplest fixes.
#42495 Jun 21, 2012
Once again (and finally), saying we are spending money on programs that are unconstitutional does not make it true. I understand that’s the name of the tune playing continuously on your radio station, and that it’s not going to change, so I’ll not keep asking you to pause long enough to think or enter into a real discussion. Waking up, metaphorically speaking, is out of the question for you.
#42496 Jun 21, 2012
Here's more on the Health coverage.....;-)
Fear the 'Mandate Only' Ruling
..... it is far from the most malignant part.
Separate from the mandate, the rest of the bill is awful. It is unworkable, and it hands over our collective futures with respect to life and death to an army of bureaucrats whom we did not elect, cannot defeat, and will never see.
In fact, it is elsewhere in the bill -- not in the mandate -- where the
Sarah Palin "death panels" reside.
When you think it through to its unavoidable conclusion, the entire bill is signing us all up for a ride on the death panel train eventually, and this has nothing to do with the mandate per se.
#42497 Jun 21, 2012
You confidently advance questionable assumptions as though they were fact and then build upon them to draw invalid conclusions. You then insult other people’s intelligence by sarcastically implying they are crazy because they don’t do the same thing. It would behove you to recognize this as a problem, and think before you spring into action.
And it’s “aluminum foil,” not “tin foil,” for the crazy stereotype.
#42498 Jun 21, 2012
Death Panels After All?
Posted on June 21, 2012
There’s an explosive story out today in the Daily Mail over in the UK claiming that Britain’s National Health Service
>>>> euthanizes(KILLS) 130,000 elderly patients a year.<<<
This claim doesn’t issue from some loopy former governor of an arctic province;
it comes from professor Patrick Pullicino, a consultant neurologist for East Kent Hospitals and Professor of Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Kent.
He made this claim in a speech to the Royal Society of Medicine in London.

In housing bubble scandal......
Holder prosecutes mom and pop, fat cats walk
Yet another scandal for Obama's embattled attorney general
Much of this started with Bill Clintoon and CRA. However, keep in mind that while many financial institutions were reluctant to finance risky potential debtors, the ACORN outfit caused many to do it, anyway. And much of it was because of government intervention in the person of Congressman Fwank, and others like him, saying that everything was A-OK.
I also read that George Bush & Co.*complained as many as 17 times* that all was not rosy in the financial area, namely Fannie May and Freddie Mack,
but were told there was no problem. <<<<----<< <
Then the blame either goes to those who did not continue with the complaints regardless of the Media spotlight or that they did not prosecute Frank and his cohorts.(AMEN)
Looking back, there's plenty of blame to pass around. But, I suspect that Holder looks back at his earlier problems and sees them as much more agreeable compared with what is happening in his house now.
The more one digs with this Washington crowd, the deeper it gets.
Holder needs hung by his "toenails?"
My version of justice....;-)

No wonder Ally Financial is preparing to file for bankruptcy. FYI: Ally Financial Inc. was founded in 1919 as GMAC, a provider of financing to automotive customers across the globe. Since then, the business has expanded to include insurance, direct banking, mortgage operations and commercial finance. At its peak it provided over $1 trillion of financing for 150 million cars and trucks around the world. Clearly that bubble is in your head and not in the real world!
Actually, I’m using the Chevy Volt because wingers, like you, have been falling all over each other to find fault as it receives awards and accolades for innovative engineering – your lame attempt at an argument is typical winger-whining!
