If the Obama administration were interested in offsetting some of the loss of benefits, they could cut some overhead.

Heard about that in the news?

Neither have I.

Like the government (non) shutdown, Obama is about inflicting the most citizen pain for the most political gain.

"Food stamp" benefits, serving 47 million people, were cut by $5 billion last Friday and Congress is debating billions of dollars in further cuts.

Yet 50 billionaires received $20.3 million in farm subsidies this year.

Those billionaires receiving farm subsidies do not farm professionally, nor do they need the government assistance they receive. To add insult to injury, these billionaires also receive large annual crop insurance payments subsidized by taxpayers. Over the last 17 years,$44 billion in federal insurance subsidies were paid out to those Billionaires – are we stupid or what?

Thank you Gdub, you have truly made a difference!
Unsurprisingly, the U.S. is the world’s biggest spender on private security, totaling $138 billion a year, thanks in large part to a spike in demand during the concurrent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Last year the Pentagon spent $44 billion on mercenaries in the two countries combined and in 2011 the U.S. spent $3 billion alone on a five-year deal for private protection for the U.S. embassy building in Baghdad. But, as the American military presence diminishes, much of the outsourced security work is transitioning to police work, with protection of oil company assets abroad also on the rise.
Boy genius Gdub is scheduled to keynote a fundraiser in Irving, Texas, for the Messianic Jewish Bible Institute, a group that trains people in the United States, Israel, and around the world to convince Jews to accept Jesus as the Messiah. The organization's goal: to "restore" Israel and the Jews and bring about the second coming of Christ.

They are all at fault for health care corruption. Look at Bush's Prescription Drug Program for seniors. Total fraud.

And Romney -A Republican RINO- wrote Obamacare which was based on the socialist health care system in Massachusetts.

One thing I've never been called is a liberal. There's a first time for everything I guess.

Let me try to be even more clear. I have been around politicians for quite awhile. I have found some to be quite amiable and sincere, and some who are opportunistic scoundrels. This is true of both major parties. If I am a liberal, it is because I usually identify with causes that are labeled as liberal.

My first exposure to Barack Obama was at the 2000 Democratic Convention. After he spoke, I turned to my wife and said he would be president one day. Even though his experience in national politics was slight, I could tell he was an inspiring, sincere, and uniquely visionary man who reflected my own political ideology and world view. A very special human being, I thought.

When Obama was elected president, in my opinion he quickly demonstrated his strong convictions and leadership qualities. I was also proud to be part of a country that would finally elect a president who was black.

But Obama was naïve about one thing. His dream of uniting the country instead had the opposite effect. It brought out both the open and latent racism that exists in our country today. I don't think Obama realized how deep-seated that racism could be. From the very start, they attacked not so much his policies, but his right to be president, spreading hateful lies about his country of birth, his allegiance to America etc., all in attempting to delegitimize
his presidency.

Despite this headwind of hate and obstructionism, Obama has accomplished goals that I believe in. It saddens me to think how much more Obama could accomplish if an atmosphere of compromise could prevail in Congress.

Do I think Obama has made mistakes? Yes, I do, and he is usually the first to admit them. But do I question his sincerity? Not for a minute. I can only hope that the next Congress is populated with more rational representatives, whose primary purpose is to make America a better, fairer, more compassionate place, rather than to obstruct and destroy the president.

You asked for a serious reply. Maybe it's a bit long-winded, but I've tried my best to give you one.
