Good News in the morning ......

WASHINGTON – When President Barack Obama posted his annual bracket for the NCAA tournament in March, he picked Louisville to make the national championship game.

On Tuesday, Obama jokingly admitted he was one game off with his prediction.

"(They) stayed focused on one singular goal, and that is to bust my bracket," said Obama, a noted basketball fan. "I've been having a tough time lately with my brackets."

LOUISVILLE: Cardinals get their giant rings

Obama honored the national champion Cardinals men's basketball team in the East Room of the White House, and Louisville coach Rick Pitino presented the president with a personalized No. 1 basketball jersey as well as a Louisville Slugger baseball bat.

"The reason we picked a bat is that some press conferences are difficult, as it is for me," joked Pitino, who won his second national championship as a coach, his first with Louisville.

"Feel free to use this at any time," he told Obama.

The Cardinals won the NCAA tournament in dramatic fashion in early April, culminating with an 82-76 comeback win against Michigan in the championship game at the Georgia Dome. They faced a 12-point deficit, but came from behind on the strength of a huge second half by graduating senior point guard Peyton Silva.

What's your suggestion? What do you suppose the solution is? You speak as if you speak for the entire GOP so, go ahead Mr. President, show the world your genius!

Armaja LaRue-Hill is a high-achieving high school student just 18 credits shy of earning a two-year associate college degree. This summer, she landed a paid internship with Cerner Corp.

President Obama’s visit today

The president will speak in the midafternoon at the University of Central Missouri Student Recreation and Wellness Center, 500 S. Maguire St. in Warrensburg.

Doors open to the public at 1:45 p.m. No more tickets are available. Those attending will go through airport-like security. No bags, signs or banners.

On Wednesday, she gets to meet President Barack Obama when he visits the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg.

The 17-year-old was all smiles Tuesday, but also a little nervous. Should she wear her curly Afro full and fluffy, or pulled back into a poofy ball?

“I don’t want to be sitting behind the president of the United States with my hair looking crazy,” she said and then laughed.“Really, I just want to get a fist bump and an autograph.”

LaRue-Hill and several other students from the Missouri Innovation Campus in Lee’s Summit will be sitting on the stage Wednesday afternoon when Obama delivers his second address of the day. The first will be at Knox College in Galesburg, Ill.

The speeches are part of a series on the economy that the White House has planned for the coming weeks. Administration officials have said Obama won’t be presenting a to-do list but will be talking about housing, retirement, health, jobs and education.

No, I've said the verdict was correct, the only one that could have been.
I do blame Zimmerman for creating the situation to start with, he should have just called in to 911 just like the neighborhood watch playbook says you should. It also says not to pursue or confront. I don't know that he confronted but by the transcripts he undeniably pursued thus triggering the incident. If he'd have followed the neighborhood watch charter instead of acting out his tough guy fantasy Martin would be alive today.
And if Trayvon, the pot-smoking petty thief with a penchant for violence hadn't jumped on top of Zimmerman, broken Zimmerman's nose, pounded his head into the pavement and said "you gonna die tonight, m-f" he would probably be alive to day as well.

He oughta be talking about implementing B-U-D-G-E-T-S, living within the means of them and JOBS to maintain them-- to contribute to an economy to help the working class PAY for bills, retirements, health, and education.

"This is a make or break moment for the middle class, and for all those fighting to get into the middle class", he said. "Because what's at stake is whether this will be a country where working people can earn enough to raise a family, build a modest savings, own a home, secure their retirement."

Other than the fact that this speech was in 2011 does anybody see something wrong with it?

Here's a link so you can read in detail how the government is funded:

After you educate yourself on how the government is funded, tell us where the money will come from to pay for Obama's government.
If you don't know, just say so.
It's not Obama's government moron, it's our government. It's the government that's supposed to keep the air we breathe, water we drink and the food we eat safe. It's the government that sees to it that the roads and bridges we travel on don't fall apart. It's the government that keeps us safe from both external and internal threats. The GOP doesn't want this. They want a government of the corporations ,by the corporations and for the corporations and to hell with the poor and middle class.

Bush had budgets.

Budgets that took us from a balanced one to the worst recession in 80 years, a housing collapse, a near financial meltdown, doubling the debt, and two quagmire wars.

I bet you were happy then. dumbass

Arsenic appears naturally in groundwater. So you won't mind if offer you a glass of well water with some added arsenic.
Why is it that you right whiners are sofa king stupid.
If a large volcanic eruption occurred today, it's effects,as related to the total amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, would be worse than if the same eruption happened 200 years ago. Now, dipstick, think about that one before you continue to embarrass yourself.
Out climate was based on these naturally occurring greenhouse gases. When man adds to it, it changes thongs.

Your mental twin, Dumbwaiter said the below & you keep talking about it.

"One major volcanic eruption releases more green-house gasses into the atmosphere than the entire human population."

Here is a link to an article that says you & Dumbwaiter are dumber than sh*t.

"According to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the world’s volcanoes, both on land and undersea, generate about 200 million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) annually, while our automotive and industrial activities cause some 24 billion tons of CO2 emissions every year worldwide. "
