Barack Obama, our next President

Ben Bernanke supposedly coined the phrase fiscal cliff and FOX ran with it, with it's halfwit news readers barely able to complete a paragraph without including the phrase. I mentioned that I got a kick out of some fat purple ankled government funded tea party parasite like you calling it the "physical cliff."
The CBO warned of a "fiscal cliff" in May 2012, a little over a month after Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke.

Fox "ran with it" because it was news. Something your black out media won't touch with a 10-foot pole.

And why you apparently know nothing about anything.

Teabaggers still see a chance to stop President Obama from being reelected

This seems like an excellent use of time and not in any way totally bugfuck crazy at all:

A state senator from north-central Idaho is touting a scheme that’s been circulating on tea party blogs, calling for states that supported Mitt Romney to refuse to participate in the Electoral College in a move backers believe would change the election result.

Sen. Sheryl Nuxoll, R-Cottonwood, sent an article out on Twitter headed, "A ‘last chance’ to have Mitt Romney as President in January (it’s still not too late)."

Constitutional supergenius state Sen. Sheryl Nuxoll isn't totally insane, by the way. Oh no. She's just, you know, asking the question. The question being, "Can we teabaggers continue to live in denial a little longer that we suffered a resounding defeat this election?" (Answer: Sure. Knock yourselves out. Send all the nutty conspiracy theory emails to each other you want.)

Here's the big plan to save America from the black Kenyan socialist Muslim something something black guy:

[I]f 17 of the 24 states that Romney carried refuse to participate in the Electoral College, the college would have no quorum, throwing the presidential pick to the GOP-controlled House of Representatives.

And here's an actual constitutional scholar patiently using little words to explain why nuh-uh:

The problem with that, Adler said, is that it’s based on a misreading of the 12th Amendment, which notes when no candidate receives a majority in the Electoral College, the decision moves to the House, where each state would have one vote and a quorum of two-thirds of the states would be required.“The two-thirds reference in the 12th Amendment is a reference not to the Electoral College but rather to the establishment of a quorum in the House of Representatives,” he said.

To win in the Electoral College, a presidential candidate needs only to get at least 270 electoral votes, Adler said. No quorum is required.

“The author touted by Sen. Nuxoll is confusing the Electoral College with the House of Representatives,” Adler said.

Electoral College, House of Representatives—hey, same difference, right?

Whatevs. The entire Republican Party, including its presidential ticket, was "shellshocked" that unskewing the gay math didin't lead to a Romney landslide, so it makes sense that in the wingiest corners of the party, they're still trying to unskew the election too.

Keep working on that, teabaggers. Please. In fact, spend all your time and money on exactly that.

All anyone has to do is compare the state of Texas to the state of California. They both have the largest populations and they both have similar demographics.
But Texas is predominantly conservative and of the mindset the less government, the better. They have a deficit of 1.3 billion and one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country.
California, in contrast, is predominantly liberal and are of the mindset there's no such thing as too much government. They have a deficit of 16 billion and one of the highest unemployment rates in the country.
There is also an exodus of people moving out of California to Texas.
Yes I know and will only accelerate with the new taxes just passed.

I'm convinced your problem is plain and simple ignorance. Either that or you believe what any leftwing propaganda source tells you.
A petition was signed by almost 9,000 parents of children with disabilities against the UN's CRPD.
The petition states, "As the parent or family member of a person with disabilities, or as one who lives with a disability, I join with Joni and Friends in urging the United States Senate to reject ratification of the United Nations' Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. This treaty threatens the traditional right of parents to direct the upbringing, education, and care of their children, especially if those children live with disabilities, and it limits the ability of the U.S. Congress to make laws for Americans."
Michael Farris, founder and chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association, highlights the concerns of parents across the country.
"We all want to show our love and care for people with disabilities," Farris said. "But all of the rights that parents have under traditional American law, especially the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, will be undermined by this treaty. The United States is a leader in rights for persons with disabilities because we have stuck to the policy of Americans making law for Americans, and that principle should not be undermined."

As always, RealDave, knowledge is power.
Right wing site ignoring the reality. Try this.

"I have long advocated on behalf of equal access and non-discrimination for all Americans, including our veterans and today’s disabled soldiers returning home from serving their nation in war," Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said in a statement.

"I support U.S. ratification of the disability treaty, as it seeks to advance these same fundamental values of equality and human dignity around the world."

The CRPD takes cues from the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act, which enacted vast protections for the disabled against discrimination in employment, public accommodations and other areas.

The convention currently has 112 ratifications and 153 signatories, according to the UN.

Senators taking part in Friday's announcement were: McCain, Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), Chris Coons (D-Del.) and Tom Udall (D-N.M.)

Many businesses are relocating to Texas to elude California's stricter environmental law and taxes. Too bad Texas will be keep getting more illegals too. It'll end up in just as much economic trouble as California has, plus increased pollution.

Who did Obama murder?

Was it Ty Woods, a highly paid soldier of fortune who was operating in a CIA secret war in Libya?

Was it Glen Doherty who was earning big bucks working as hired gun based in Tripoli and being paid by who the fk knows?

Was it Sean Smith a supposed State Dept data manager who's office was in Tripoli but just happened to be in Benghazi?

Or Chris Stephens, the ambassador who was in Benghazi for unknown reasons__does anyone find it strange that no one has explained why Stephens was in Benghazi without his security detail???

Fk the details eh? Let's just beat the sht out of Susan Rice!

GOP may hurt rights for the disabled

President-unelect Rick Santorum made his triumphant return to the Capitol on Monday afternoon and took up a brave new cause: He is opposing disabled people.

Specifically, Santorum, joined by Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, declared his wish that the Senate reject the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities -- a human rights treaty negotiated during George W. Bush's administration and ratified by 126 nations, including China, Russia, Iran, Cuba, Syria and Saudi Arabia.

As someone named Semby said in the comments following this article, "I don't think the US should support any UN treaty. We live by our own laws; not the UN. The UN is a disgraceful, corrupt organization, what is going on?"

What's going on, indeed.

Someone named JFKdemocrat commented, "We certainly don't need treaties that trump our constitution. No legislator of any party should be talking about ceding any US sovereignty, period."

I agree. Give the UN an inch and they will take a mile. Let the UN get its toe in the door and they will swing it wide open.

You get the picture.

President Bush supporting global communist domination

President George Bush, addressing the General Assembly of the United Nations, Feb. 1, 1992:

It is the sacred principles enshrined in the United Nations charter to which the American people will henceforth pledge their allegiance.

The son now carries forward the work of the father.

So let's see....so it's only nutjob FOXbots, or WND idiots, who even worry about that which is of no consequence to most people. But I know how you 'smart' folks just love to stick you noses into that that really doesn't even effect you.

So how did that work out in the election? More FOX failure?
