Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

The program needed the Cornhusker Kickback and Louisiana Purchase to pass a Congress with Democrats in a super majority in the Senate and a dominant majority in the House.
If you recall, the very next thing that happened was the Democrats got their asses kicked so hard their shoulders disappeared in the mid-term elections. The backlash the voters gave the Democrats after the ObamaKare fiasco set a record for the entire history of the United States.
The people vehemently object to ObamaKare.
Now, all that is happening is, the American people are telling you how to run the government.
... and you're objecting to that.
Now, what's wrong with that picture?
I'll tell you what's wrong with that picture, a few BILLION people around the world who adopted Health care into their social programs as a civilised way to live. Everyone from the successful western countries to communist dictators. What you are trying to tell us, the same way Republicans also tried to stop social security when it became law yet the biggest recipients of it are now Republican voters.

It doesn't matter because regardless what is presented by Billions of ppl who have these systems in around the world. Your eyes and ears choose not to take it on board because your MIND tells you it can't work. This would also be the case for every tea bagger in America, no matter what the facts are, their mind is in capable of bringing that data in. The lines are cut to that part of the brain, it's an unfortunate affliction and what's worse others have to suffer because of it.

ObamaKare is what they dont' agree on.
How about funding those things they can agree on to get the government operating again?
You actually (stupidly) actually stated the Democrats' intent with the statement "...pass a bill that funds the ACA first."
Yup. You actually are stupid enough to make your ransom demand in straight language.
The Democrats are holding the government hostage demanding ransom be paid to their Marxist welfare program.
The answer is no. We'll talk about the things we don't agree on after we approve the things we agree on.
Now, let's talk about funding things we can agree on, like the stack of bills sitting on Harry Reid's desk he's obstructing from getting to the Senate floor so the Senate can vote on them and get the government operating again.
How is it ransom when it's the law, that's been voted on &, passed they both houses? You really should think before you speaketh.

ExxonMobil is investigating what caused its Pegasus pipeline, which carries oil from southern Illinois to the Texas Gulf Coast, to burst open March 29.
McDaniel, whose office is conducting its own investigation, lashed out at the oil giant after families in 22 homes were displaced when the mess seeped into lawns and streets, and also harmed and killed several animals, reported ABC affiliate KATV.

Polls: Yes, The GOP Is Losing The Shutdown Fight
Republicans and conservatives insist that they'll emerge victorious from the current budget impasse, but polls have consistently told a different story.
Monday saw a slew of new polling, including findings from outlets that previously conducted surveys on the government shutdown. The latest polls found some movement in public opinion, but that doesn't mean that the circumstances have changed for the GOP.
An ABC News/Washington Post poll on Monday showed 51 percent of the public disapproving of Obama's handling of the budget talks and 61 percent disapproving of congressional Democrats -- amounting to upticks of one and five points respectively since last week. But approval of Obama's handling actually rose four points to 45 percent, while approval of congressional Democrats remained virtually unchanged at 35 percent.
Disapproval of congressional Republicans, meanwhile, jumped from 63 percent in ABC/WaPo's poll last week to 70 percent on Monday. There was little change in the GOP's approval numbers, dipping only two points in ABC/WaPo's polling to 24 percent in the last week.
According to Monday's CNN/ORC International poll, 63 percent said they are angry with the way Republicans have handled the shutdown, slightly more than the 57 percent who expressed anger at Democrats. Fifty-three percent said they are angry with the way Obama has handled the situation.
Those numbers could be seen as an extension of CNN/ORC's pre-shutdown polling, which found 46 percent of Americans saying they would blame Republicans on Capitol Hill for a shutdown compared with 36 percent who said they would fault Obama.
Pew Research Center also conducted polling ahead of the shutdown, finding two weeks ago that about as many Americans said they would blame Republicans as Obama. At that time, 36 percent said they would blame the Obama administration for such an outcome while 39 percent said they would blame the GOP.
Pew's release on Monday suggested that the public is now giving Obama a break: 30 percent said the administration is more to blame for the shutdown, while 38 percent said they blame Republicans.

83% of the government is still operational. The only things being shut down are those that will get news coverage.

What kind of ignorant fools does Kerry think he's talking to? Even if the entire world didn't know Al Qaeda is the "rebel" army in Syria, the goddam president of Russia knows.
Just how stupid is Kerry?
Probably the most embarrassing thing these dilettantes have gotten into to date.

Don't know whether Obama was the stick or Kerry was the rag, maybe the other way around, but the Russian washed his ass with them both.

Or that the batteries used to store the power are plain old lead acid batteries...and you need a shitload of them.

There is nothing green about solar at this point.

The whole alt energy scam is nothing more than an attempt to remove power from the "old money" and give it to "new money".

Subsidized?
Forbes 2012:
"No wonder President Obama loves to bash Big Oil. Thanks to high crude prices, America’s big three oil companies are raking in the profits. So in 2012 Obammy tried to take away their tax breaks.
The Senate voted down the president’s proposal 51-47 on a bill that needed 60 votes to survive. It’s unlikely that the senators spent much time poring over financial statements and annual reports. But if they had it might have given them a reason to vote against the president’s wishes.
In 2011 these THREE OIL GIANTS EACH PAID MORE IN INCOME TAXES THAN ANY OTHER CORPORATION IN AMERICA.
ExxonMobil in 2011 made $27.3 billion in cash payments for income taxes.
Chevron paid $17 billion
and ConocoPhillips $10.6 billion.
And not only were these the highest amounts in absolute terms, when compared with the rest of the 25 most profitable U.S. companies (see our slideshow for the full rundown of who paid what), the trio also had the highest effective tax rates.
Exxon’s tax rate was 42.9%, Chevron’s was 48.3% and Conoco’s was 41.5%. That’s even higher than the 35% U.S. federal statutory rate, which is already the highest tax rate among developed nations.
(The lowest taxpayers among the most profitable companies? Automakers Ford and GM, despite $20 billion and $9 billion in net income, respectively, paid a scant $270 million and $570 million in taxes — simply because they have billions in previous-year losses to balance against recent profits.)
Full List: The 25 U.S. Companies That Pay The Most In Taxes
Just what are those tax breaks the president wants to take away from Big Oil?
Here’s the three biggest ones. First off, the president doesn’t think that oil companies should be able to get credit on their U.S. income tax bills for all the billions in income taxes they pay to oil-rich regimes around the world.
Second, the president doesn’t think Big Oil should be allowed to deduct from taxable income some of those costs incurred in exploring for oil and drilling wells.
Third, the president wants to cancel oil companies’ domestic manufacturing tax deduction of 6% of the value of oil and gas they produce in the United States.
Those don’t sound like egregious handouts, but, said the president,“It’s not like these are companies that can’t stand on their own.”
Sure they can stand on their own, but that’s not the point. Do we really want a corporate tax policy that has one set of rules for oil companies and another set for everybody else?
Yet the campaign against Big Oil tax breaks won’t end there. We’ll hear again and again between now and Election Day that oil companies aren’t paying their share.
Left-leaning tax groups like the Citizens for Tax Justice try to make the case that ExxonMobil pays tax of just 13% or so on its U.S. profits. But if Exxon pays a smaller portion of its taxes in the U.S. it’s because it faces huge tax bills overseas in countries like Angola where the petroleum income tax is as high as 70%. Like every U.S. multinational, Exxon gets tax credits that offset their U.S. tax liability by the amount of tax paid to other countries.
How bad are those oil “tax breaks,” really? The deduction for oil drilling costs isn’t much different from the deductions that pharmaceutical companies are allowed to take for research and development costs (no one has proposed taking those away).
And as for the domestic manufacturing deduction, every other company that manufactures anything in the U.S. can deduct up to 9% of the income they generate on those goods. Right now, oil companies only get a 6% deduction on the oil and gas they produce.
Why single them out?"
Answer: Because it is Obama, who has never even run a lemonade stand doing the preaching.
