The Obama bin Lyin administration is the greatest wet blanket to business, and progress and job creation in our lifetime...
It's the culture...
In their mad rush to catch up to the Western world, China has trashed its environment and that of the rest of the world. In the West, there is a social cost and a financial cost attached to production of just about anything. Early on, China looked upon their ignoring expensive environmental laws as an edge in competition against the West and, even today, the weak ones they have on the books are for show and nothing more. China will continue trashing the environment until somewhere down the road they feel equal to the West - whenever that may be.

DumbDave's constant apologizing and rationalizing China's bad behavior is laughable.

The blame game is going to get very ugly very soon. The Democrats are desperate and see their power slipping away.
Don't think we've even seen the depths which they will go to keep that from happening.
Between now and November, you will see the Magic Negro and his minions desperately trying to change the national conversation away from his failures and onto some stupid new "issue" like "Gender Gap", "Economic Justice", "Profiling" or even Putin's Brow-Beating the Ukraine.

Democrats are scared. The Magic Negro tells them to change their position from defensive to offensive,i.e; tell the voters you are proud of your stupidity.

The Magic Negro does that himself all the time when he travels to make stupid speeches about shovel-ready jobs in all 58 States. The Fist Cow even bought him a T-Shirt for his birthday that has "I'm Stupid And Proud Of It" emblazoned across the front of it.

Across the back, in small print, it says "It's An Affirmative Action Thing. You Wouldn't Understand"

Bull. We have to fight to prevent oil companies from closing down refineries. From 1985 to 1995, 10 California refineries closed and others have tried and failed. Over all we have twenty refineries. Seems about right for a state our size. Texas has 27.

Community organizing on a grand scale...

and what did the GUBBYMINT give these folks in exchange?

"Kathleen Sebelius, the health and human services secretary,“contacted the chief executive officers of five organizations to solicit support for one outside entity, Enroll America,” which ran a national campaign to help people sign up for insurance, the report said. Ms. Sebelius has announced that she plans to leave her post"

The commie-leaning kiddies on duh hill could've avoided that, had they acted more like rational and sane GROWN UPS working FOR the America people, rather than adled brainless, egomaniacal dictator type jackboots.

Megyn Kelly Refuses to Surrender to Angry Muslims
The truth hurts sometimes, especially when it comes to the truth about Islam and its violent and oppressive history.

When Megyn Kelly did a segment on honor killings and the treatment of women in Muslim countries on The Kelly File, the Muslim group CAIR, or the Council on American-Islamic Relations, immediately came out to denounce the segment and demand a retraction.

Kelly unequivocally refused to retract anything from the segment, saying,“Guess what, you’re not getting it.”

Via Downtrend:

Honor Diaries is a movie that tells the story of nine women’s rights advocates.

Now, when you read the phrase “women’s rights advocates,” you might think it’s the kind of movie that liberals would truly appreciate. Sadly, we haven’t seen any evidence of that just yet.

You see, Honor Diaries is about the way that women are abused in countries dominated by Muslims. Therefore, the truth portrayed in that movie is politically incorrect.[...]

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) was none too happy with that segment. The group actually contacted Megyn Kelly and requested a retraction.

A retraction for what? Talking about a movie that accurately portrays the hardships that women endure in Muslim countries?

Well, the good news is that Megyn Kelly is no wilting pansy. On her show last night, she notified CAIR, in no uncertain terms, that she’s not retracting anything.

Originally posted on CT.

CAIR’s agenda is to go after anyone who speaks the truth about militant Islam. They’re not interested in helping victims of the abuses of shariah law or honor killings. They want political correctness, and they and the mainstream media cover up the violence against women that is rampant in the Middle East.

It just goes to show that liberals obsessed with political correctness are more committed to protecting Islam than standing up for “women’s rights,” which is something that they claim is near and dear to their hearts. Where is the real “War on Women,” and why aren’t liberals speaking out about it?

Please share this article on Facebook and Twitter if you support Megyn Kelly and her decision not to cave to an angry Muslim group.

<quoted text>Amount Each President Added to the Debt per Fiscal Year Since 1960:

FY 2002 -$421 billion.
Hard to imagine what Bush would have done if Clinton hadn't handed him a budget surplus. You people keep forgetting that Obama started from a much higher base and the rise in debt is going to accelerate faster during a time of recovery after a recession.

Facts: Reagan increased the debt 190%; George H Bush increased the debt 52%; Clinton increased the debt 37%; George W. Bush increased the debt 87% and as of January, 2012, Obama had increased the debt 45%.

Percentages can be deceptive. If you notice Reagan's total debt was $1.86 trillion for 8 years while winning the Cold War. Obama's is $5.081 trillion in 5 years and he has done what? At least Bush has 911 and two wars to fight!!!
