Keep telling yourself that as you need all of the reassurance that a moonbat can gather. As usual small minds have great difficulty grasping the meaning or point. You don't get to pick and choose which laws to obey IDIOT. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that in real life you are a big PUSSEECCEE.

Records Set on Obama's Watch
1. U.S. sovereign debt downgrade: first in American history.
2. Federal spending (25% of GDP): highest since WWII.
3. Budget deficit (10% of GDP): highest since WWII.
4. Federal debt (67% of GDP): highest since just after WWII.
5. Employment (58.1% of population working): lowest since 1983.
6. Long-term unemployment (45.9% of total): highest since 1930's.
7. Increase in nonfarm payroll employment (0.5%) since recovery began 26 month ago: slowest job growth 26 months after a severe recession since WWII.
8. Home ownership rate (59.7%): lowest since 1965.
9. Percentage of taxpayers paying Income Tax (49%): lowest in modern era.
10. Government dependency (47%), defined as the percentage of persons receiving one or more federal benefit payments: highest in American history.
Just think. If Hillary should win by a miracle in 2016, it will still be Bush's fault until 2020.

The reason it isn't Bush's fault now is because any president could have done something different to fix the mistakes of his predecessor after six years.

But this president and his Democratic Congress spent the first two years in power making things worse and doing the same things they did the last two years of Bush's presidency - ignoring the problem (which was then the impending economic crisis) or throwing more money at it (a broken welfare and education system).

They have also followed the exact same path leading to a slow economy and job growth as Jimmy Carter did. You'd think they might have learned something from his mistakes and followed in Bill Clinton's footsteps who worked very closely with his Republican Congress.

Celebrating Diversity: Family Receives Award for Raising Daughter as a Boy

May 30, 2014 By TPNN

ryland

A family who has a six year-old daughter received an award at Thursday’s Sixth Annual Harvey Milk Diversity Breakfast after they unveiled a video depicting how they raise their daughter to be a boy as a means of recognizing her supposed true “gender identity.”

The Daily Mail reports that the family received the Inspiration Award at the diversity breakfast named for Harvey Milk, San Francisco’s first homosexual politician.
The family’s beautifully produced video, which so far has been viewed on YouTube nearly 100,000 times, details how little Ryland and his parents came to embrace his true gender identity.

For the Whittingtons, the first curveball came when they discovered that Ryland, then aged one, was born with a severe hearing impairment.

The parents were heartbroken, but thanks to cochlear implants their child was able to communicate.

Not long after learning to speak, Ryland declared to his parents:‘I am a boy.’

Even though the toddler lived in a room painted pink, sported long blonde hair and was dressed by his parents in girly outfits, he naturally gravitated toward everything masculine.

At first, Jeff Whittington, a former firefighter-turned-real estate agent, and his wife, ignored the signs, thinking that Ryland was just a tomboy, or that it was a phase that soon will pass.

But by the time Ryland turned five, he started actively rejecting everything feminine and soon was overwhelmed with a sense of shame.

‘When the family dies, I will cut my hair so I could be a boy,’ Ryland had told his parents on one occasion.

Another time, the child exclaimed in anguish:‘Why did god make me like this?’

The Whittingtons sought professional help and began researching the topic of childhood gender identity on their own.

There was only one obvious answer: their child was transgender…

Many members of the audience at the Harvey Milk Breakfast who watched the touching clip had tears in their eyes following the Whittingtons’ emotional presentation, LGBT Weekly reported.

‘One of the most inspiring things that Harvey Milk had done as far as our family is concerned,’ said Jeff Whittington,‘was to encourage people to come out; to let their voices be heard; break down the walls, break down the barriers and start allowing people to see them for their authentic selves and be true to themselves.

He added,‘This is our coming out … this is us making our voices heard.’

Heard this explained very well last night. Advanced technology is already replacing humans in the workplace along with hiring cheap labor from illegal immigrants and outsourcing to cheap labor in other countries. ObamaCare's part-time incentive and raising the minimum wage will mean even fewer jobs.

We'd better come up with a very good solution quickly.

With an aging population doctors who refuse to take on Medicare patients are going to realize that that's a rather short sighted position to take.
It's not like they're refusing to take any Medicare patients. They keep the Medicare participation at a percentage of their practices. They don't accept new patients once that percentage is met. The bill collectors aren't going to wait for the government. Also, low reimbursements don't pay the bills. Participation is on a rise, as you have stated in another post, but are kept at a percentage level within their practices.

Dude that's been going on since the start of the industrial age, do us all a favor and take a history class or two. As far as illegal immigrants taking jobs, again that's been going on since the inception of this country. In fact in the 1850's, during the wave of Irish immigration, the Irish were taking jobs from the slaves in swamps of New Orleans, cause slaves were more expensive to replace

We report. You decide. Does President Bush owe his controversial win in 2000 to Fox cable television news?
Yes, suggest data collected by two economists who found that the growth of the Fox cable news network in the late 1990s may have significantly boosted the Republican Party's share of the vote in the 2000 election and delivered Florida to Bush.
"Our estimates imply that Fox News convinced 3 to 8 percent of its audience to shift its voting behavior towards the Republican Party, a sizable media persuasion effect," said Stefano DellaVigna of the University of California at Berkely and Ethan Kaplan of Stockholm University.
In Florida alone, they estimate, the Fox effect may have produced more than 10,000 additional votes for Bush -- clearly a decisive factor in a state he carried by fewer than 600 votes.
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/...
you're a real hoot. sometimes i can't stop laughing. like now.
So Democrats and Al Gore had ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC and CNN firmly on their side.

But you're blaming one network for Bush winning in 2000?

The Supreme Court determined the outcome of the 2000 election. After three months of counting and recounting, Bush had the most votes in south Florida by a narrow margin.

If it had been Gore instead, I can guarantee you Republicans would have been much better losers than Democrats.

It could have gone either way. But you Democrats wouldn't let go of it and still hold a grudge.

None of that immigration you fare referring to was illegal.

BTW, what happened to the rule of law Obama is so fond of speaking about?

They don't seem to realize that every time they blame Bush for this perpetual recession, they're admitting Obama is inept - unless a contracting economy is what they were expecting.
