Man I slaughter this sentence so to clarify...

The Obama admin has ordered the ocean close denying numerous ocean based businesses their lively hood because the Obama admin deemed the personnel to keep it open as "non-essential" while the "enforcement officers" to ensure this dictate is followed are deemed "essential". Yeah, try to figure out that twisted logic. The House has passed a CR to fund the NPS but Obama threatened to veto it.

This does not explain you posting a link to the NPR article of the AP poll and then getting all whining about my response of Obama's approval rating from the article. You didn't read the article apparently and did not know it was your OWN source I was citing from.
Before you come out again screaming cite a source, do yourself a favor and actually look at your post and your article.

What Is an American Conservative?

Today’s conservatives are liberals—they favor an economy that wreaks “creative destruction,” especially on the mass of “non-winners,” increasingly controlled by a few powerful actors who secure special benefits for themselves and their heirs; a military that is constructed to be only loyal to the central authority in the capital, frequently moved about to avoid any rooted loyalty, and increasingly isolated from most fellow citizens; an increasingly utilitarian view of education aimed at creating individuals who will become able cogs in a globalized industrial system, largely without allegiance or loyalty; proponents of an increasingly homogenized society whose allegiance is to a set of ideas, especially a “more perfect union,” which Francis Bellamy expressed, was inspired by the example of the French Revolution.

One reaction to my previous article, denouncing an economic system creating a two-class society, suspected me of not being conservative at all, even of harboring Marxist inclinations. This constitutes a logical error—just because Marx was a critic of crony capitalism, that does not make all critics of crony capitalism Marxist. To such criticisms, I can only reply—if what you seek to conserve is liberalism, then you’re right, I’m no conservative. And by today’s definition, who, except a few discredited neo-conservatives (a.k.a., paleo-liberals) trying to reignite the good old days of the Cold War, would want to be so defined?

If conservatism is broken today, we need only blame liberalism. There is only one party in America—your choice is liberalism with deliberate speed, or liberalism in a hurry. What is needed is a new, doubtless very different, American conservatism.

More Hell Coming to DC as Misinformed Right Wing Truckers Prepare to Invade

But make no mistake, the real political barrage is aimed directly at our black president and it’s racist to the extreme. Obama is characterized as a “domestic enemy” who should be impeached for treason. The same old tired terminology of “socialism and tyranny” rises to the top of the “Ride for the Constitution” rhetoric, not to mention the ever-present appeal to patriotism. Repetition of those relentlessly repeated words as applied to the president is why this is a highly organized continuum of the anti-Obama propaganda campaign that comes directly from the very top of the Republican hierarchy.

I listened to an Internet online radio broadcast of Ms. Andrews/Hutton as long as my aging sensitivities would allow. The ongoing show about the trucker action sounds like a doofus right-wing version of “Wayne’s World.” and is aired on an intellectually preposterous online network (big Santilli supporters) with an oddball name and zero meaningful content.

No word yet on what the Department of Transportation and DC law enforcement plan to do with their soon-to-arrive “tourists.”

You said it right, you weren't thinking at all.

You just come here to drop ridiculous charges and run off when they are challenged

Health Insurance in America grew dramatically during WWII, due to wage and price controls.

I believe 1943 was in that period. But you and the Cruzer are clueless about that, as you are about most American History. LOL

As soon as you learn how to do a basic internet search, you can educate yourself. Or did you come here to be educated??

----------

""Employer-sponsored health insurance plans dramatically expanded as a direct result of wage controls imposed by the federal government during World War II. The labor market was tight because of the increased demand for goods and decreased supply of workers during the war. Federally imposed wage and price controls prohibited manufacturers and other employers from raising wages enough to attract workers. When the War Labor Board declared that fringe benefits, such as sick leave and health insurance, did not count as wages for the purpose of wage controls, employers responded with significantly increased offers of fringe benefits, especially health care coverage, to attract workers.""

""President Harry S. Truman proposed a system of public health insurance in his November 19, 1945, address. He envisioned a national system that would be open to all Americans, but would remain optional. Participants would pay monthly fees into the plan, which would cover the cost of any and all medical expenses that arose in a time of need. The government would pay for the cost of services rendered by any doctor who chose to join the program. In addition, the insurance plan would give a cash balance to the policy holder to replace wages lost due to illness or injury. The proposal was quite popular with the public, but it was fiercely opposed by the Chamber of Commerce, the American Hospital Association, and the AMA, which denounced it as “socialism.""

----------

No, instead you will deny facts and ask others to 'prove' it to you, mostly because you know you're wrong.

Your claims of being a Democrat are just a lie, obvious to the most casual of observers. And a masters program for the destitute??

Shirley you jest.

Back to your 'I think Obama's a communist', that you ran away from like a frightened lemming. Please explain. Let's see just how ignorant you really are.

Yeah, really?

Then why did you cry cite a source when I posted Obama approval at 37% from the article?

It is time for you to stop trying to justify this. What was petty nonsense on your part now has inflated into total idiocy on your part. A self-inflicted wound.

President Bush will leave office as one of the most unpopular departing presidents in history, according to a new CBS News/New York Times poll showing Mr. Bush's final approval rating at 22 percent.

Seventy-three percent say they disapprove of the way Mr. Bush has handled his job as president over the last eight years.

Mr. Bush's final approval rating is the lowest final rating for an outgoing president since Gallup began asking about presidential approval more than 70 years ago.

And that is with many in the media still worshipping Obama. Although, that is changing.

Remarkably, Mediate has reported that, for "the first time in memory," yesterday's presidential press conference contained no questions from a television reporter. Seems press that there's an effort underway to "punish" those who aren't friendly enough toward the White House:

Perhaps coincidentally, the very same Jay Carney has been clashing with some TV reporters recently, and making unsubtle suggestions about their objectivity. A cynical person might think that the decision to skip all of the TV reporters was designed to avoid possible criticism that certain reporters were being snubbed.

Also perhaps coincidentally, the President himself has been outspoken about his displeasure with the media narrative that “both sides” are responsible for the current government shutdown and default crises.

Pretty amazing that this White House throws a snit fit about having to endure the kind of media skepticism that the GOP confronts on a routine basis, isn't it?

In the end, the hand-picked lapdog questions resulted in a media performance that was -- as Brit Hume described it to Hugh Hewitt -- "one of the saddest things I’ve ever seen. It was just pathetic."

It's worth asking: Why is the President so afraid of the tough questions?
