The starting point for Obama is as follows:
1) losing 750,000 jobs a month & growing trend
2) An economy Shrinking at over 6%
3) Two quagmire wars
4) A housing collapse
5) A near financial meltdown.
These things created
1) fast rising unemployment
2) More people on Food Stamps
3) Fewer people paying federal income taxes
4) Lower average incomes
5) Trillion dollar deficits
Employment/incomes are lagging indicators & take longer to recover. Average incomes have improved since they bottomed out. Unemployment rate is has improved since Obama stopped the job losses & it peaked. Deficits have been shrinking since they peaked in 2009,2010.
After the original stimulus dwindled down, we needed more action as many economists agree. Several of Obama's stimulus actions since Jan of 2011 have been stymied by Republicans in the House & Senate.
"are you joking"
"real dumb" is a troll. He has no answers as to why we are still in a recession, his words, not mine. He has no answers as to why; millions more American's on food stamps, millions fewer American's paying Federal Income tax, declining household incomes, housing values far below the level when his boy, president nobama took office, unemployment still high, officially a bit below 8% in reality over 15%. Oh, he does have a reason, It is Bush's fault. His answer for everything.

There are never enough organs, of all kinds, for those who need them.

All decisions should be made on a medical basis, not on emotion.

Galt does not agree with Sebelius or any other Obama stormtrooper on any issue.

Answering questions posed by the opposition would mean betrayal. "Useful idiots" don't do that. They might be considered clear thinkers or, even worse, honest with themselves.

Horror of horrors.

Your link don't work Melvin. Unlike you libtards I realize the the Daily Show is a comedy show and not real news. But that is why all of you are clowns. You get your news from comedy and satire sites and shows and think it's real. You will grow up one day, maybe.

"silly"
"Flack" is not speaking of a law when he noted that convienence stores post a sign regarding hoodies. Stores are not telling anyone they can not wear a hoodie they are simply telling them to take the hoodie down when they enter. Stores have the right to refuse service to those who adversely affect their business. They can refuse entrance to those who do not wear a shirt or shoes.
"silly" you are the one who wants laws passed that restrict how a business is ran.
If folks were not sofuckinjg stoopid many laws would not be necessary. Texting while driving should be a no no. Folks should have enough sense not to. Just wait until some idiot texting rams into you.

The only reason for wearing a hoodie with the top up inside a business is to prevent identification by the surveillance cameras.

Red alert for the store owner to have his firearm ready.

<quoted text>You are not a foreign policy expert. I rest my case there. If you looked objectively at Susan Rice's job resume then she is eminently qualified to fill the position of NSC adviser Tom Donilon. On opposite sides of the political spectrum Madeline Albright and Jesse Helms would agree. "Susan Elizabeth Rice (born November 17, 1964) is an American diplomat, former Brookings Institution fellow, the current United States Ambassador to the United Nations, and the National Security Adviser-designate. Rice served on the staff of the National Security Council and as Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs during President Bill Clinton's second term. Rice was confirmed as UN ambassador by the U.S. Senate by unanimous consent on January 22, 2009. "... "Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, a longtime mentor and family friend to Rice, urged Clinton to appoint Rice as Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs in 1997.[5] Rice was not the first choice of Congressional Black Caucus leaders, who considered Rice a member of "Washington's assimilationist black elite."[5] At a confirmation hearing chaired by Senator Jesse Helms, Rice, who attended the hearing along with her infant son, whom she was then nursing, made a great impression on senators from both parties and "sailed through the confirmation process."[5]" Check this out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susan_Rice

<quoted text> I somewhat agree with you. Although I'm not sure about republicans padding their pockets. It would seem to me that would be a bipartisan thing. Everybody wants their hand in free money. Using an EBT card to save printing the stamps is a good thing. However I think it should make people uncomfortable to be seen using one. It will give them an incentive to get off of them. Hell I say have a special line for EBT only. The catch being the computer registers on the other lanes be programed not to except them. I like that idea! Give them their own lane.
What's next have them wear a star on their clothes like the Nazis did with the Jews? You people are fcked up.

The best part of that wnole deal is he is going to stand before the court, the country, and the world and boost about doing it for Allah, the jihad, and Islam. It's going to blow Obama's 'workplace violence' sheep dip out of the water.

People who aren't interrogated gestapo-style or have their names and addresses posted because of their political beliefs and who aren't treated like they're on the government's "enemy's list" are, in fact, "useful idiots".

Otherwise, who in their right mind in a country that was once proudly hailed as the land of the free not see this is illegal, un-American and a dangerous abuse of power which will only get worse if the complacency we see on here spreads?

I'm seriously very concerned. Our freedoms that once defined us is on the chopping block.

And some on here are the few of many others holding the cleaver.

<quoted text> Well lets see. Out of a 365 day year Saturday and Sunday take up 104 days. That brings it down to 261 days. The federal government takes off what 50 days a year for holidays (a guess). That brings it down to 211 days. A minimum of two weeks vacation brings it down to 201. Oh the logs they are specifically referring to are after the 2010 mid-terms when the democrats got their butts handed to them. So that would be 2011-2012. So 201 times two is 402. 3 times 161 is 483. Yeah right!!!
That would be correct except he only visited 11 times. So do the math on that ya stupid fck.
