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 ... Read more

President Bush remained committed to ensuring all veterans receive the care and support they need from the Federal government. Under his leadership, the Administration has:

Dramatically Increased Funding To Support And Care For Those Who Have Served Our Nation
•Increased funding for veterans' medical care by more than 115 percent since 2001.
•FY 2009 funding for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) totals more than $97 billion, nearly double the level of funding when the President took office and the highest level of support for veterans in history.
•Provided more than $6 billion to modernize and expand VA medical facilities and more than $1 billion over the past three years to support traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder treatment and research.
•Honored our veterans with a hallowed, final resting place by implementing and fully funding the largest expansion in the national cemetery system since the Civil War.

Improved Care And Services For Wounded Warriors
•Created the Commission on Care for America's Returning Wounded Warriors – co-chaired by former Senator Bob Dole and former Health and Human Services Secretary Donna Shalala – to ensure that wounded service members and veterans receive quality care and services and can live lives of hope, promise, and dignity. Nearly all of the Commission's recommendations have already been implemented, such as:
&#9702;Expanded training, screening, and staff resources to help service members and veterans suffering from mental health disorders.
&#9702;Created a joint Recovery Coordinator Program for seriously injured service members.
&#9702;Initiated a pilot program to replace the cumbersome system of two separate disability examinations with a single, comprehensive medical exam.
•Established a Center of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury and expanded VA's polytrauma system of care to 21 network sites and clinic support teams to provide state-of-the-art treatment to injured veterans at facilities closer to their homes.

Ensured Those Who Have Served Our Country Receive The Benefits They Deserve
•Called for and signed a GI Bill for the 21st century, which expanded education benefits for service members and veterans and made it easier for those who defend our Nation to transfer unused education benefits to their spouses or children.
•Increased career counseling services for returning veterans, particularly those wounded in combat.
•Signed legislation that increased from two to five years a combat veteran's eligibility to enroll for lifetime VA medical care and allowed family members of injured service members to take additional time away from their jobs to care for their loved ones.
•Signed legislation to ensure military retirees with severe disabilities receive both their military retired pay and their VA disability compensation.
•Helped more than 1.9 million veterans enroll in the VA health care system since 2001.
•Reduced the average length of time to process a veteran's disability claim to under 180 days, down from 230 days when the President took office.

Worked To Decrease The Number Of Homeless Veterans
•Expanded Federal grants and worked extensively with faith-based and community organizations to help homeless veterans.

liars calling Obama a liar.
so you can see why it's another failed right wing Obama 'scandal'.
Obama has yet to enroll in health insurance under Affordable Care Act, could it be because it's bad, or could it be that he would have to divulge private information he has been paying millions to hide. Shades of his fraud on his Illinois Bar Application.

New "Obama" jobs disproportionately low-pay or part-time.


Go Democ-RATS.

Less people now will have good jobs and be able to afford homes.

We will end up having "different" people uninsured now, but:

Democ-RATS now have a bigger government and less efficiency.

the fact that his charts show that spending is down is of some concern?
maybe you missed this....
Obama Channels Eisenhower With Anemic Government Spending Growth
Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell says it’s time for the president to “get serious about spending.” The budget numbers suggest Barack Obama already has, with beneficial effects on the deficit.
Federal outlays over the past three years grew at their slowest pace since 1953-56, when Dwight D. Eisenhower was president. Expenditures as a share of the economy sank last year to 22.8 percent, their lowest level since 2008, according to Congressional Budget Office data. That’s down from 24.1 percent in 2011 and a 64-year high of 25.2 percent in 2009, when Obama pushed through an $831 billion stimulus package.
“If you strip out the stimulus, discretionary spending over the last few years has been quite modest and is scheduled to go to levels we haven’t experienced in modern times,” Robert Reischauer, a former director of the CBO, said in an interview.“Obama signed on to that,” partly in response to Republican pressure.
Bah, not according to Fox News.

It's good to have goals!!!

Enrollment numbers!


"Check out that runaway Obamacare enrollment over on !

In Arkansas, its up to 1,404! Well along the way to the state’s goal of 51,000 paid enrollees by the end of March.

In Delaware, it’s up to 793! The state’s goal is 35,000.

In New Hampshire, they hit 1,569. Getting close to that goal of 19,000!

In West Virginia, it’s up to 775! They’ll hit their goal of 24,000 in no time!

In Hawaii, all the way up to 444! That goal of 9,000 is in sight!

In Colorado they’re up to 9,980… with a goal of 92,000.'

Compare Bush's record of funding veterans to this:

WASHINGTON -- The majority of the U.S. Senate sent a letter to President Barack Obama on Friday, urging his "direct and public involvement" in fixing the disability claims backlog plaguing the Department of Veterans Affairs.

"In the last four years, the number of claims pending for over a year has grown by over 2000%, despite a 40% increase in the VA's budget," read the letter, which was signed by 67 senators, led by Bob Casey (D-Pa.) and Dean Heller (R-Nev.)....Solving this problem is critical for veterans of all generations. We need direct and public involvement from you to establish a clear plan to end the backlog once and for all."

This administration is too busy creating this president's legacy.

Homer is so open minded he doesn't want to know that the birther controversy started with Hilary due to something that was posted in Obama's bio in his book.

Don't confuse Homer with the facts.

From their website.
The restaurant industry is the most labor-intensive industry in the country. Our technology can save the industry $10 billion per year in wages
PRODUCTFast food doesn’t have to have a negative connotation anymore. With our technology, a restaurant can offer gourmet quality burgers at fast food prices.Our alpha machine frees up all of the hamburger line cooks in a restaurant.It does everything employees can do except better:
It slices toppings like tomatoes and pickles immediately before it places the slice onto your burger, giving you the freshest burger possible.
Our next revision will offer custom meat grinds for every single customer. Want a patty with 1/3 pork and 2/3 bison ground to order? No problem.
Also, our next revision will use gourmet cooking techniques never before used in a fast food restaurant, giving the patty the perfect char but keeping in all the juices.
It’s more consistent, more sanitary, and can produce ~360 hamburgers per hour.
The labor savings allow a restaurant to spend approximately twice as much on high quality ingredients and the gourmet cooking techniques make the ingredients taste that much better.
We will launch the first restaurant chain that profitably sells gourmet hamburgers at fast food prices.See For YourselfOur current device can pay for itself in less than one year, making equipment sales a second path for us.Our current machine can be used in other restaurants, convenience stores, food trucks, and even in vending applications. The domain expertise of our team and the devices that we will build in the near future are going to allow restaurants to offer patrons a dramatically better experience.
Our team was trained in mechanical engineering, control systems, and physics at top tier institutions: Berkeley, Stanford, UCSB, and USC. We draw from work experience that includes cutting edge firms such as: Tesla, NASA, Semiconductor Technology Associates, etc. Our investors are tier one venture firms and we are advised by the best in the restaurant industry.
We are looking for individuals with the best restaurant experience to join us. Our engineering team is also looking for talent:(1) Mechatronics EngineerWe are using clever and unique designs to dramatically improve the quality of our food.Job Description:- Work with our friendly and incisive team to find effective and elegant solutions to market needs.- Apply your extensive knowledge of mechanisms, principles of machine design, electronics, and sensors to solve challenging problems.(2) Machine Vision SpecialistBeauty is in the eye of the beholder, especially when you are looking at our burgers through a super precise computer running complex algorithms to make sure that everyone’s food is, well beautiful. There are additional, creative products that we will be doing with machine vision but can’t talk about it here!
We want to help the people who may transition to a new job as a result of our technology the best way we know how: education.Our goal is to offer discounted technical training to any former line cook of a restaurant that uses our device. We will certainly need more engineers to design new devices and technicians to service a growing line of automated restaurant solutions. These are the minds that can do this job. If you are a vocational training institution, please contact us here.The issue of machines and job displacement has been around for centuries and economists generally accept that technology like ours actually causes an increase in employment. The three factors that contribute to this are 1. the company that makes the robots must hire new employees, 2. the restaurant that uses our robots can expand their frontiers of production which requires hiring more people, and 3. the general public saves money on the reduced cost of our burgers. This saved money can then be spent on the rest of the economy. We take these issues very seriously so please feel free to tell us how we can help with this transition.
