We have a new kind of leadership in the White House. The President's Club. Everyone has tenure and is rewarded for insulting the owner of the club from any culpability in having created an environment of corruption.
Hopefully, the Club will soon be exposed and dispersed.
But it really is getting late. Night, shinning.

So tell me hypocrite alcoholic, what exactly have you Republicans ever done about that issue that you only use at election time like the total hypocrites you prove over and over to be?

English: Barack Obama delivers a speech at the...
President Obama’s Kansas speech is a remarkable document. In calling for more government controls, more taxation, more collectivism, he has two paragraphs that give the show away. Take a look at them.
there is a certain crowd in Washington who, for the last few decades, have said, let’s respond to this economic challenge with the same old tune.“The market will take care of everything,” they tell us. If we just cut more regulations and cut more taxes–especially for the wealthy–our economy will grow stronger. Sure, they say, there will be winners and losers. But if the winners do really well, then jobs and prosperity will eventually trickle down to everybody else. And, they argue, even if prosperity doesn’t trickle down, well, that’s the price of liberty.
Now, it’s a simple theory. And we have to admit, it’s one that speaks to our rugged individualism and our healthy skepticism of too much government. That’s in America’s DNA. And that theory fits well on a bumper sticker.(Laughter.) But here’s the problem: It doesn’t work. It has never worked.(Applause.) It didn’t work when it was tried in the decade before the Great Depression. It’s not what led to the incredible postwar booms of the ’50s and ’60s. And it didn’t work when we tried it during the last decade.(Applause.) I mean, understand, it’s not as if we haven’t tried this theory.
Though not in Washington, I’m in that “certain crowd” that has been saying for decades that the market will take care of everything. It’s not really a crowd, it’s a tiny group of radicals–radicals for capitalism, in Ayn Rand’s well-turned phrase.
The only thing that the market doesn’t take care of is anti-market acts: acts that initiate physical force. That’s why we need government: to wield retaliatory force to defend individual rights.
Radicals for capitalism would, as the Declaration of Independence says, use government only “to secure these rights”–the rights to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness.(Yes, I added “property” in there–property rights are inseparable from the other three.)
That’s the political philosophy on which Obama is trying to hang the blame for the recent financial crisis and every other social ill. But ask yourself, are we few radical capitalists in charge? Have radical capitalists been in charge at any time in the last, oh, say 100 years?
I pick 100 years deliberately, because it was exactly 100 years ago that a gigantic anti-capitalist measure was put into effect: the Federal Reserve System. For 100 years, government, not the free market, has controlled money and banking. How’s that worked out? How’s the value of the dollar held up since 1913? Is it worth one-fiftieth of its value then or only one-one-hundredth? You be the judge. How did the dollar hold up over the 100 years before this government take-over of money and banking? It actually gained slightly in value.
Laissez-faire hasn’t existed since the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890. That was the first of a plethora of government crimes against the free market.
The book "Amateur" says it all about the clueless blundering and foggy thinking.

You want your fellow hillbillies to keep on gestatin''em, huh, sl ut? After all, who's gonna pay for your hickass without more idiots to feed the military-industrial nightmare, as prices for inferior food and water continue to spiral out of control, until you'd kill for a well-cooked fetus au jus, with some new potatoes and carrots around it. You don't even have the slightest idea what's coming down the pike, do you saucer-nipples? The whole "end times" scenario was something you loved to jabber about to the rev. billy bob, after you went down on hm in the trailer out back. Now you giggle, and call the REAL thing "globull warming!" God, you cu nts are imaginative. I hope I get to see your retarded offspring eaten by the very ones you "prayed" would "save" you. Don't wait for jesus. As the song says, "he ain't comin' back." It's likely likely he ever existed. The Romans were very meticulous record keepers, you filthy, fat, drunk slug.

If the VA was run by the Military men in our socieity, we wouldn't have 22 soldiers a day committing suicide. I am attacking the crack head that O'bama put in charge-the directive from the O'bama administration to medicate our soldiers. Just give them a pill. Give them a pill and then give them methadone. Give them more pills because they might be depressed-just give them pills. Many soldiers do not want to be medicated and yet if they don't want to follow the O'bama way they are cut free. Defend your precious O'bama who has always been a hater of the military. Instead of openly showing his disdain, he has gotten to the military in other ways.
