After almost five years of Obama’s presidency the impact of his presidency has had on our Youth almost six million young people "have neither desks nor job!"
And it's not just the young who are suffering. The report finds that "49 states have seen an increase in the number of families living in poverty and 45 states have seen household median incomes fall in the last year!"

Christie Drops Fight Against Same-Sex Marriage

Had fought it until couples began exchanging vows
By Noah Rayman Oct. 21, 2013

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Monday that he will drop his appeal to a court ruling that paved the way for same-sex marriage, hours after same-sex couples in the state began tying the knot for the first time.

Christie submitted a formal withdrawal of his appeal Monday morning, the Associated Press reports.

Christie, a Republican cruising to reelection in a blue state but also eying a possible presidential run, has walked a political tight rope on same-sex marriage, opposing efforts to legalize it while also saying it should be left for voters to decide by referendum. He vetoed legislation to legalize same-sex marriage in 2012, and continued to fight it in court until conceding defeat Monday.

His decision to cancel an appeal that the state Supreme Court had still planned to hear means a lower court’s ruling allowing same-sex marriage won’t be overturned, making New Jersey the 14th state to allow the unions.

So holding this administration accountable on behalf of the people and the victims' families of Benghazi and the far-reaching IRS interrogative tactics of denying average conservative groups the same tax exemptions as liberal groups and demanding answers as to why American journalists' private information was confiscated and now our foreign allies is "a waste of time"?
Do I have that right?
You're the liberal media's ideal "useful idiot", hate to say it.
Benghazi - no lies, no stand down order from the White House , No possible way to get more help in time.

IRS _ When you ask for a report on right wing groups & the report talks only abut right wing groups, it does not mean only right wing groups were targeted.

Lets print top secret information in the newspapers.

If you don't think the NSA has been spying in foreign country for decades then you are dumber than I thought.

What have all these investigations accomplished?

An Important History Lesson: Hyperinflation in the Weimar Republic
By Justice Litle

The Weimar Republic is perhaps the quintessential example of hyperinflation. But the buildup took longer than one might think.
Walter Levy is a German-born oil consultant. His father, a German lawyer, took out a life insurance policy in 1903.
Every month he had made the payments faithfully,” recounts Levy.“It was a twenty-year policy, and when it came due, he cashed it in and bought a single loaf of bread.
Such was life in the German Weimar Republic.
Things got so bad there for a while, dentists and doctors stopped asking for currency, seeking payment in butter or eggs instead. But the farmers weren’t keen on trading their produce for paper money either.
Prices rose not just by the day, but by the hour — or even the minute. If you had your morning coffee in a café, and you preferred drinking two cups rather than one, it was cheaper to order both cups at the same time.
Here is how a Weimar factory worker described payday (which was every day):
At eleven o’clock in the morning a siren sounded and everybody gathered in the factory forecourt where a five-ton lorry [truck] was drawn up loaded brimful with paper money. The chief cashier and his assistants climbed up on top. They read out names and just threw out bundles of notes. As soon as you had caught one you made a dash for the nearest shop and bought just anything that was going.
Crime was rampant then too:
The flight from currency that had begun with the buying of diamonds, gold, country houses, and antiques now extended to minor and almost useless items — bric-a-brac, soap, hairpins. The law-abiding country crumbled into petty thievery. Copper pipes and brass armatures weren’t safe. Gasoline was siphoned from cars. People bought things they didn’t need and used them to barter — a pair of shoes for a shirt, some crockery for coffee. Berlin had a “witches’ Sabbath” atmosphere. Prostitutes of both sexes roamed the streets. Cocaine was the fashionable drug..
The above anecdotes come from Paper Money by Adam Smith, aka George Goodman[...]

The Weimar Republic — a name bestowed by historians — was established in 1919.(“Weimar” was the name of the city where the constitutional assembly that formed the republic was held.)
But here is the thing. Inflation had been running rampant in Germany well before Weimar came about.
Largely due to the war, prices had already doubled between 1914 and 1919. Not only did the ramp-up to hyperinflation take a while, but the German government remained complacent long afterinflation strains went from moderate to severe.
As George Goodman explains,
Why did the German government not act to halt the inflation? It was a shaky, fragile government…More than inflation, the Germans feared unemployment. In 1919 the Communists had tried to take over, and severe unemployment might give the Communists another chance. The great German industrial combines — Krupp, Thysen, Farben, Stinnes — condoned the inflation and survived it well. A cheaper mark, they reasoned, would make German goods cheap and easy to export, and they needed the export earnings to buy raw materials abroad. Inflation kept everyone working.
So the printing presses ran, and once they began to run, they were hard to stop…
In order to recreate the Weimar experience, we would need to see the following:

A multiyear period of sustained inflation in goods and services
A relaxed attitude toward inflation on the part of government
A deliberate strategy of tolerating inflation for the sake of employment

What's to investigate? Obama stole that software.
Where did the 100 million dollars we gave Obama to write that software go? The world knows Obama stole the software. It seems he stole the 100 million dollars, too.
Now, that's an image we want to portray to the world. Nothing like having some Samali pirate as president.
Where did the 100 million dollars go? Everyone knows it wasn't spent to write the software Obama stole.
The Teleprompter Stooge blew more money, just like he did with all his green/tech stuff like with Solyndra. The idiot can barely use an ipod.

The Marxist Party (Democrats) blame banks & greedy investors/CEOs, but remain silent about MF Global's Jon Corzine not knowing where about $1.6 billion had disappeared to during the firm’s bankruptcy.

Democrats are corrupt.

Bush never called the average American terrorists and an enemy, you moron, and he didn't spy on them in preparation for a war against the population of the United States.
Bush spied on muslim terrorists.
Obama exempts muslim terrorists from his spying network.
