NBC/WSJ poll:
54%- Obama is no longer able to lead the country.
57%- disapprove of his handling of foreign policy (even without Iraq).
63%- believe the country is on the wrong track.
http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/first-read/nb...
Some of the 63% probably think we're on the wrong track because the train hasn't derailed yet - the only thing that would make them happy - pretty sure.
Hmmm:

29% of those polled had a favorable opinion of the Republican Party
22% had a favorable opinion of the Tea Party. Yet,
44% had a positive opinion of Hillary Clinton (only 37% said they would not vote for her)
45% favor a Congress controlled by Democrats compared
43% who would like to see Republicans in charge.

To the question, "how competent would you say the Obama administration is in its role of managing the federal government?

50% said very or somewhat confident.

And, to the question: "When it comes to the problems in the US Department of Veterans Affairs which comes closer to your point of view (ROTATE STATEMENTS)-- These problems are due to longstanding government bureaucracy, these problems are due to poor management by the Obama administration -- or do you not have an opinion one way or the other?

61% said it was due to longstanding government bureaucracy and only
14% said it was due to poor management by the Obama administration despite all the trash talk by reich wingers

That, my dear, IMO, still makes you a loser in 2016 and that is all that matters.

<quoted text>From your source son...
"...Hitler realized one thing the movement lacked was a recognizable symbol or flag. In the summer of 1920, Hitler chose the symbol which to this day remains perhaps the most infamous in history, the swastika.
It was not something Hitler invented, but is found even in the ruins of ancient times. Hitler had seen it each day as a boy when he attended the Benedictine monastery school in Lambach, Austria. The ancient monastery was decorated with carved stones and woodwork that included several swastikas. They had also been seen around Germany among the Freikorps (soldiers for hire), and appeared before as an emblem used by anti-Semitic political parties.
But when it was placed inside a white circle on a red background, it provided a powerful, instantly recognizable symbol that immediately helped Hitler's party gain popularity.
Hitler described the symbolism involved: "In the red we see the social idea of the movement, in the white the national idea, in the swastika the mission to struggle for the victory of Aryan man and at the same time the victory of the idea of creative work, which is eternally anti-Semitic and will always be anti-Semitic."..."
the swastika symbol is also used by the racist Navajo Redskins......

Wikpedia
A fine is money paid usually to superior authority, usually governmental authority, as a punishment for a crime or other offence. The amount of a fine can be determined case by case, but it is often announced in advance.[1]
The fine bill for violation of traffic law in Czech Republic
A warning sign in Singapore that states the fine for releasing vehicles that are immobilized with wheel clamps by Singapore Police Force officers.
"The most usual use of the term, fine, relates to a financial punishment for the commission of crimes, especially minor crimes, or as the settlement of a claim. A synonym, typically used in civil law actions, is mulct.
One common example of a fine is money paid for violations of traffic laws. Currently in English Common Law, relatively small fines are used either in place of or alongside community service orders for low-level criminal offences. Larger fines are also given independently or alongside shorter prison sentences where the judge or magistrate considers a considerable amount of retribution is necessary, but there is unlikely to be significant danger to the public. For instance, fraud is often punished by very large fines since fraudsters are typically banned from the position or profession they abused to commit their crimes.
Fines can also be used as a form of tax. Money for bail may be applied toward a fine."
The SC said the fine/penalty was a form of tax. As you see above, fines can be used as a tax.
The Supreme court said the Penalty was unconstitutional under the Commerce Clause but was under the ability of Congress to tax so it could stay.
You GD idiots get dumber every freaking day.
SCOTUS ruled that the individual mandate was constitutional ONLY as a tax, not as a fine or penalty....

in effect, SCOTUS ruled that insurance cannot be required, but that those who do not have insurance can be taxed....

now, go back to masturbating with Wikipedia.....

Okay, let's take your points one at a time.
Yes our work force is shrinking. We have an aging population and the "baby boomer" generation is retiring. This isn't necessarily a bad thing since labor like any other commodity is subject to the economic rules of supply and demand. As supply retracts labor becomes more valuable. That's why fat cats like those on the Business Round Table want to raise the retirement age. They want to put off the inevitable that they're going to actually have to compete for workers by offering better wages and benefits. Younger people aren't going directly into the workforce after high school either, opting for additional education and training that's needed in a more complex work environment.
A sign of recession? No.
The vast majority of households that don't pay federal income taxes are either elderly or paying payroll taxes. 60 percent of those who don't pay income tax are still working and paying taxes for Social Security and Medicare. Their tax liability is just too low to qualify for the income tax. Another 22 percent of non-payers are retirees. Solution: raise the minimum wage and keep it indexed to inflation. Also the number of people who don't pay federal income taxes tends to jump every time there's a big tax cut bill, as after the 1986 tax reform or the 2001 Bush tax cuts. There's a reason why George W. Bush was boasting, in 2004, about moving 5 million taxpayers "off the rolls."
76% of SNAP households included a child, an elderly person, or a disabled person. These vulnerable households receive 83% of all SNAP benefits. Another group is workers on minimum wage jobs who need to use public assistance like SNAP benefits to make ends meet. Solution; raise the minimum wage.
Negative growth in one quarter due to unusually harsh weather conditions isn't a trend moron.
The fall in median income is also due to an aging population. With 10,000 Boomers hitting age 65 each and every day, the proportion of households consisting of retirees is increasing dramatically - and that is pulling down median household income. Solution: Once again raising the minimum wage and indexing it to inflation.
None of these are signs of a recession. Corporate profits are at all time highs and the markets are in record territory.
So you can kiss my butt Eed.
You're an idiot; you also have been and always will be!
"pdumb"
Continue to be a troll.
Face the facts. A record number of American's require food stamps to eat. Why? The nobama regime's policy are not leading to economic expansion. In case you missed it the GDP shrank is the first quarter of this year. Millions of American's, those ow working age have left the work force. Why? Several reasons, no jobs, and most importantly the freebees the lazy get, food stamps, free health care, housing subsidies. The market I ASSume you mean the stock market will go into free fall if/when nobama slows down the printing of borrowed money.
Kiss your butt? No way, is your butt, is just like your mouth, all the comes out of it is manure.

Egypt Charges Obama and Hillary with Conspiring With Muslim Brotherhood
During the Arab Spring, the Egyptian people rose up and removed their President Hosni Mubarek. Into the power vacuum that followed, the Muslim Brotherhood seized control of Egypt’s government. The people quickly realize their error in allowing this, and overthrew them with the help of the Egyptian military.

President Obama, whose meddling foreign policy always seems to put him on the wrong side of issues, offered his support to the Muslim Brotherhood with arms, tanks, fighter jets, and money.

But the Muslim Brotherhood has been named a terrorist organization by Egypt, meaning Obama’s aid to them constitutes “aiding and abetting” the enemy, and the Egyptians haven’t forgotten what Obama, or Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, did to help out the Muslim Brotherhood.

According to Western Journalism, charges have been filed in Egyptian court accusing Obama and Hillary of conspiring and collaborating with the Muslim Brotherhood in the commission of numerous crimes.(H/T Conservative Tribune)

President Obama has been named as an accessory to crimes committed by the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, with the charge reading that Obama “…cooperated, incited, and assisted the armed elements of the Muslim Brotherhood in the commission of crimes…”.

Some of the crimes include murder, rape, torture, extortion, bribery, enslavement, and the ethnic cleansing of Egyptian Coptic Christians.

According to one of the criminal charges, Hillary Clinton was found to be working with ousted Muslim Brotherhood president Mohammed Morsi’s wife, Naglaa Mahmood, in attempting to overthrow the current leader of Egypt, General Abdel Fatah Al-Sisi.

Naglaa Mahmood has openly admitted that her relationship with the Clintons dates back to the 1980&#8242;s, and she has hundreds of recorded telephone conversations with Hillary and other White House officials.

There is also a charge that Obama and Hillary attempted to bribe the Muslim Brotherhood with $8 billion to turn over part of the Sinai Peninsula to Hamas, in order for them to launch attacks against Israel.
