Be calm. Feel free to become distracted. Take your meds and light up some weed. Do not focus on how miserable you are or the fact that for the first time in 70 years, middle-class job opportunities have seized up. Now there is some progress. Then you could ask:“Are you ready for some football?” So why doesn't O'bama want his son to play football again?

O'bama says Americans hates him because he is black-he keeps trying to race bait the entire nation, now his claim is :“There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president. Big Whoop, Mr. President. I'm sorry that 43 percent of your voters were white—but you’re probably right. It’s most likely a race thing. How is it that O'bama gets dumber every single year in office? According to O'bama he is a failure because he is black, I don't know why he doesn't come out and admit it!

RIEGELWOOD, N.C.» After losing her job as a security guard in June, Alnetta McKnight turned to food stamps and unemployment insurance to support herself and her 14-year-old son. But her jobless payments ran out after 20 weeks, and now they are living on close to nothing.
"I worked for 26 years; I lost my job through no fault of my own," McKnight said, sitting in her darkened living room — she keeps the lights off to save money — in this small town about 20 miles from Wilmington, N.C. "This is what I get?"
Had McKnight been laid off a year earlier, she almost certainly would have qualified for more than a year of unemployment insurance payments, helping keep her family out of penury while she sought another position. But last July, North Carolina sharply cut its unemployment program, reducing the maximum number of weeks of benefits to 20 from 73 and reducing the maximum weekly benefit as well.
The rest of the country is now following North Carolina's lead. A federal program supplying extra weeks of benefits to the long-term unemployed expired at the end of 2013, and congressional Democrats failed in an effort to revive it. About 1.3 million jobless workers received their last payment Dec. 28. Starting Jan. 1, the maximum period of unemployment payments dropped to 26 weeks in most states, down from as long as 73 weeks.
With that move, the country's safety net for jobless workers has undergone a sudden transformation, from one aimed at providing modest but sustained protection to workers weathering a tough labor market to one intended to give relatively short-term aid before spurring workers to accept a job, any job.
It is still early, but the results in North Carolina suggest there are both gains and losses from cutting back on support for the jobless. The state's unemployment rate has plummeted to 7.4 percent from 8.8 percent, the sharpest drop in the country. In part, that is because more jobless workers are connecting with work. But an even greater number of workers have simply given up on finding a job.
North Carolina's move also highlights a sharp political divide playing out on the national stage. In Washington, Democrats are making an election-year charge that Republicans are pulling the safety net from under struggling families at a time when the economy remains weak and is operating far below its potential.
"North Carolina still has a higher-than-average unemployment rate, so this is important to this state," President Barack Obama said last week as he unveiled plans for a new manufacturing research center in Raleigh. "Folks aren't looking for a handout. They're not looking for special treatment. There are a lot of people who are sending out risumis every single day, but the job market is still tough."
So for the 100th time O'bama is focused like a laser on jobs??? ROTFLMAO.

How can republicans passed any legislation with Harry Reid tabling jobs bills and healthcare bills which have never seen the light of day in the Senate for discussion? Apparently you failed to understand the House has passed 17 pieces of legislation all forwarded to the Senate and sitting gathering dust while Harry Reid runs interference for Obama.
Teabaggers my ass. You don't know what you are talking about you are reciting information and talking points hand delivered by MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and gang. Do nothing rethugs? I think not it's the do nothing demothugs holding up legislation in the Senate why not give all the senators a chance to vote? I'll tell you why because democrats up for election would gladly grab anything to save their election prospects from an angry voters.
Obama knows that and Harry Reid knows that.
The GOP hasn't proposed or passed anything that would actually create jobs. They keep going with the myth that if you lower taxes and loosen up regulations jobs will increase. The Bush administration did both and had the lowest rate of job creation since the Great Depression. Democrats on the other hand have proposed infrastructure projects that would actually put people back to work.
You're an idiot.

Actually over half of those who voted for Obama in 2012 were white.

So, your claim is that no one disapproves of the President because he is black. Are you really this uninformed?

GOOD MORNING OBAMABOTOPIX FAMILY!!!!!
As you all can see I have been up all night into the wee small hours maniacally judging your posts and chit-chatting back and forth to myself using many of my favorite sockpuppets!! A "labor of love" though tiring!! I had to change my depends three times last night but it was worth every diaper as it was challenging and exciting!! I have been using a new product called "Guard your Manhood",, very effective if I don't say so myself!!! "Not Surprized" loves them!!!! Anyone who spends as much time on Topix as I do (though I doubt there is) should look into them. Fabulous!
I and most of my sockpuppets will be on board all day today making idiotic and mentally deranged comments, the sole purpose being to harass and feebly attempt to insult the legitimate posters who use this forum.
ATTENTION!!!! I have brought forth another favorite sockpuppet creation from the bottomless pit of my sockpuppet closet, "forks_make_us_fa t"!!! He will be posting along with one of my favorite socks, "Emeeml" for most of the day, so please my dear friends, stick around today!!!!
And welcome them with some of that Topix love!!!
I will also be judging your posts all day. I plan to be here for the entire day and night with my sockpuppets so get ready for an all out judgit blowout shitshow!!!! Please JOIN in!! I will give you a head start if needed. I enjoy spending the day here giving out judgits to anyone who doesn't agree with me and I like to think I have full control of this thread!!! I consider it "mine"!!!!!!
And now it appears that it's time for another time out and some much needed quality time spent in my hydrotherapy bath, the tranquilizing "chair" and some gyroscope therapy treatment. I think I over did with the judgits and my sockpuppets all night long. I got overly excited and need to take a breather. These depends are pretty shot too!! Carry on the marathon judgit tourney without me till I return!
As usual I will share a couple of my secrets with my topix friends:
As I have revealed, if you want to get an edge in the judgit race, doubling up on the industrial strength depends are a must. And constipating foods are a big help!! I recommend cheese and lots of it!! Multiple IP addresses are a must as well!!!!
I will return shortly, relaxed, rejuvenated and refreshed!!!!
Warm hugs,''Not Surprized),,,( the very chubby, chubby-chasing Obamabot from a location too embarrassing to be posted here)

So where's the constitutional breach you vomitous cretin? Holder was in each case upholding the Constitution. Arizona can't set up its own immigration policy. That's a power delegated to the federal government by the Constitution. This was upheld in a 5 to 3 decision of the Supreme Court.
The right to vote is also constitutionally guaranteed and if a state attempts to block some of its citizens from voting the federal government not only has the right but the duty to step in.
There's nothing in the 11th Amendment that prohibits the federal government from bringing suit against a state that violates the law.
You're an idiot!
Why are you so angry defending this president?

Seems to me if you were right and the rest of us were wrong, your anger wouldn't be necessary. You'd have solid arguments to stand behind instead.

Requiring an ID to vote isn't all that unreasonable to incite this kind of reaction. Unless you're afraid voter IDs would drastically affect the number of votes for your party.

Why else would it make you so angry?

Conservative pundit Glenn Beck seems to regret his on-air antics during his tenure at Fox News Channel.

Fox News host Megyn Kelly asked Beck to reflect on his time at the network on Tuesday's "The Kelly File." Beck left in 2011 to start his digital network, The Blaze, saying at the time that he felt like "if you do not leave now, you won't leave with your soul intact."

"I wish I could go back and be more uniting in my language," he told Kelly. "I think I played a role, unfortunately, in helping tear the country apart and it's not who we are."

"I didn't realize how really fragile the people were, I kind of thought we were a little more in it together," Beck continued. "Now I look back and I realize if we could've talked about the uniting principles a little more instead of just the problems, I think I would look back on it a little more fondly."

If only lowering taxes and creating incentives for businesses to hire were a myth.....

It worked under two Republican presidents (and Congresses) in the past and one Democratic president. Reagan, Bush and Clinton (Republican Congress).

Even after 9/11 and a huge bump in the economy, Bush lowered taxes and brought down unemployment within two years. The unemployment rate before and after 9/11 - before both sides ignored the warnings about the impending housing market collapse - was rarely above 5%.

What Democrats are doing now sure isn't working.

Requiring a photo ID to stop imaginary voter fraud when 10-12% of eligible voters do not have a Photo ID is voter suppression.

I find it funny that you " I love the Constitution" frauds would back an effort that actually prevents eligible voters from voting. Especially when there are absolutely NO statistics that show significant voter fraud that a photo ID would prevent.,

I give a sh*t about the right to vote.

At the federal level we need to legalize ALL drugs, legalize ANY human to marry ANY other human, taxes paid by FLAT percentage, make the death penalty the DEATH PENALTY, NO free perks (i.e. health care) given to elected officials, NO raises to elected officials, CEASE taking from this planet & start giving back.
