No, that would be you, Lily...and your fellow race baiters who resort to the basest of behaviors just to get your own way.

My desire is that you - and all liberals - will find the common sense you lost somewhere along the way. Also, I'm just sick and tired of all the nonsense you and they have created.

You only hate conservatives because we strive to aspire to a higher standard. What does that say about you, Lily?

Is it because you simply can't tolerate anyone who tries to aspire to a higher standard or is it because we refuse to fall prostate before your chosen golden calves?

So it's not me who needs to look in the mirror. It's you, I'm afraid. I'm on the side of what is right and good - the side who respects women for their strengths and not their weaknesses, who wants to lift the bottom up instead of bringing the top down, and who wants to cherish some of the traditional values that makes us a good and decent society by looking to something greater than ourselves rather than our selfish and self-centered natures.

I'm just trying to shine a little light into the darkness. But the darkness hates the light, according to scripture. You probably hate that too.

Shinningmoron AWOL today. This is near Lapeer Michigan, maybe its him:
'Government Conspiracy' Triggered Highway Gunman's Rampage. Raulie Casteel thought drivers along Michigan's Interstate 96 were part of a government conspiracy against him, he said in court Monday.
So he started firing.

"To my way of thinking at the time,[the shooting] was to get rid of the demons so to speak. It was those thoughts – the fear, the anxiety," the confessed shooter said Monday.

Sure must be convenient to have Fox around to accuse who might just, perhaps, be the only ones telling the truth. Probably why Obama hates them too. They just won't fall in line and stay in his back pocket like the rest of the media.
And speaking of falling in line, it's why he demonizes and disrespects Republicans, the elected officials of half the country, who he refuses to recognize as such because they actually want to be part of the governing process instead of giving in to everything he wants carte blanche.
Now he's whining about the gridlock in Congress when he - and he alone - created it by his obstinate and arrogance. He just doesn't know how it works. Even Clinton knew how it works. Obama just thinks he won - and that's how it works - just him and his elite inner circle calling all of the shots.
He's a loner who even WH aides have said doesn't seem to like anyone. He thought the presidency would give him the kind of isolation he desires by not having to deal with his colleagues on the Senate floor and would give him the kind of bully pulpit he craves. He's simply in over his head. He's too self-centered. And he doesn't know how it works.
But go ahead and blame Fox for that too.

Conservatives to Bush: Issue More Executive Orders

With President Bush unable to get much traction so far in moving his agenda through Congress or in improving his job-approval ratings with the public, White House advisers are casting about for ways to jump-start his final two years, including issuing executive orders to get things done without having to ask for support from the Democratic-controlled Congress.

http://www.usnews.com/usnews/news/articles/07...

and anyway....

Right-wing talk shows turned White House blue

Is it all a coincidence that Democrats’ fortunes reversed as Limbaugh and his imitators gained influence?

Despite Limbaugh’s ridicule, in 1992, Bill Clinton won more electoral votes than any Democratic challenger in 60 years. In the previous six presidential elections (1968-1988), the Republicans had won five times – all but one by an electoral landslide. Since conservative media began to flourish, only once (2004) has the GOP candidate captured more than 50 percent of the popular vote. And that candidate, President George W. Bush, had the lowest re-election results of any conservative chief executive in U.S. history.

On the other hand, between 1996 and 2008, with conservative media ascendant, four different Democratic standard-bearers in successive elections – Clinton, Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama – combined for a majority of the popular vote. Democratic nominees had never enjoyed this level of serial success. In 2012, Obama won re-election in a second majority-vote victory – the first Democrat to do so since Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Coincidence again?

“Some things are just too coincidental to be a coincidence,” as Yogi Berra once said.

You do know that the TEA Party isn't really dead, in contradiction to what the Democrats and RINOs want you to believe, don't you? You do know that if a TEA Party candidate is nominated, he's going to win in a landslide, don't you?
Now, get ready for this. There is going to be investigations and the White House won't be obstructing justice. Given the factual evidence, it seems very likely there is treason being committed in the White House. The best thing is for all of your heroes to come clean now. Don't wait until sentencing.

Are you say you believe he did run?
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)— As President Obama prepares to deliver his State of the Union address tonight, congressional Republicans are promising to respond with what they call their grumpiest faces ever.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Virginia) confirmed that the G.O.P. have been practicing in front of mirrors for weeks in the hopes of creating just the right grouchy-face look for the TV cameras.

“Tonight, President Obama is going to lay out his vision for this country,” he said.“We owe it to the American people to look like someone just pissed in our cornflakes.”

For some, the task of looking crabby “is just another day at the office,” said Senator Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky), widely viewed by his fellow-Republicans as the reigning sourpuss in Congress.

“It’s a gift I have,” he said.“It’s one of the perks of being a steaming cauldron of spite.”

Perhaps the most sustained performance of sulkiness will fall to House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), who will be seated behind the President and therefore will be on camera for the entire duration of the address.

“There’s a lot of pressure on me to look sullen for an entire hour, but I’m up to it,” he said.“It helps that I will be in the same room with so many people I despise.”

Spending is up
Deficit will approach 600 billion this year

KMA
Federal spending continues to drop and, combined with this year’s tax increases, the healthier fiscal operations are making a dent in the federal deficit, according to the latest numbers released Friday by the Congressional Budget Office.

Defense spending dropped by $10 billion in October and November, and other basic government activities outside of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid dropped by $13 billion.

Combined with an improving economy, which is boosting wages, and with the tax increases that President Obama and Congress agreed to at the beginning of the year, the federal deficit was down $61 billion, or more than 20 percent in the first two months of fiscal 2014, which started Oct. 1.

The numbers are more good news for the federal budget, which ended fiscal 2013 with the first sub-$1 trillion deficit since President Obama took office.

maybe you should have said 'it's dropped down to 600 billion'.

And don't be fooled or, worse yet, remain a fool when this president uses language that sounds like he's just been waiting around for the Republicans to come to him with all the solutions which he would have gladly accepted if they only had offered them.

They have. Many...many...times. It was Obama who refused to negotiate every single time and Harry Reid who refused to bring up their many proposed solutions for a vote in the Senate every single time.

This president is as crafty as a Fox guarding the hen house. Don't be one of the hens.

Jan 28 (Reuters)- President Barack Obama will lay out a strategy for getting around a divided Congress and boosting middle-class prosperity on Tuesday in a State of the Union speech that reflects scaled-back legislative ambitions after a difficult year.

Obama will make clear in his 9 p.m. address that he is willing to bypass U.S. lawmakers and go it alone in some areas by announcing a series of executive actions that do not require congressional approval.

The White House said Obama would announce he is issuing an executive order to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour for federal contract workers with new contracts.

In his address, Obama will also call on Congress to pass a bill to increase the federal minimum wage for all workers to $10.10 an hour from $7.25 and index that to inflation.

The executive order raising the level for federal workers, which applies to new contracts or existing contracts in which terms are being changed, will take effect at the beginning of next year, with janitors and construction workers among the beneficiaries. Issuing the order allows Obama to bypass Congress, where Republicans oppose a broad increase in the minimum wage.

White House officials said Obama would also announce new executive actions on retirement security and job training to help middle-class workers expand economic opportunity.

"What you'll hear in the speech tonight is very concrete, realistic proposals as it relates to wages, as it relates to education, as it relates to training, high-tech manufacturing, retirement security, those are the things that he's focused on," White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough said on NBC's "Today Show."

With three years left in office, Obama has effectively reduced for now his ambitions for grand legislative actions.

Obama is expected to renew his appeal for a long-stalled immigration overhaul that has been stymied by Republicans. He will promote his signature healthcare law, four months after its disastrous initial rollout.

White House officials said the president would try to work with Congress to accomplish his agenda, but would also try to advance it through executive actions if necessary.

"We will continue to call on Congress - both sides of the aisle - to come up with new and fresh ideas for how we can grow our economy and create opportunities for the American people, but we aren't going to stop at that," White House senior advisor Valerie Jarrett said on MSNBC'S "Morning Joe."

Former NFL punter Chris Kluwe rips Christian fundamentalists who want to turn U.S. into Iran
Fundamentalism is never a good thing in history,” he said.“Fundamentalism leads to really terrible things, and so my position has always been: I don’t have any problem whatsoever with religion, I have no problem whatsoever with whatever your beliefs are, all I care about are your actions. What do you actions say about you as a person? Because that is the only way any of us can ever judge each other.”
Kluwe warned that if fundamentalism was unchecked, the United States could see a form of government like the Iranian theocracy. He said that many Christian fundamentalists were “terrified” of Islamic Sharia law being imposed within the United States, yet wanted to turn the United States into a “Christian theocracy.”
“You can’t say no to this theocracy and then try to impose your own theocracy. That doesn’t make sense,” Kluwe remarked.
