Barack Obama, our next President

Not true. A case in Spokane, WA. A police officer tased one who was resisting arrest. The one resisting arrest died. The police officer was sentenced to 6 years in prison. A judge just threw out his appeal. He will appeal to a higher court.

He wouldn't release his tax returns, so I guess we'll never know, will we??
Have you seen a return, or are you quoting a Rmoney statement??
Can you think of a good reason for a Presidential candidate not to release his/her tax returns??
Because I can't.
----------
""Mitt Romney has been employing yet another strategy to avoid paying taxes, according to a new report.
Romney legally avoided paying taxes through a charitable remainder unitrust he set up with the Mormon Church in 1996, Bloomberg News' Jesse Drucker reports.
The trust, which is only a small fraction of Romney's $250 million net worth, has been paying Romney 8 percent of its assets every year, according to Bloomberg. Since charities, including the Mormon Church, are tax-exempt, Romney hasn't paid taxes on the money for more than 15 years. The Romney campaign declined to respond to questions from Bloomberg and only said through a spokeswoman that "the trust has operated in accordance with the law."
Romney has reportedly sidestepped taxes in other ways. He has been avoiding gift and estate taxes through a trust that he set up for his children and grandchildren, according to a separate Bloomberg report. He also holds a Swiss bank account and investments abroad, including in the Cayman Islands, where he does not need to pay U.S. taxes. In addition, Romney avoided taxes by playing an "active" role at Bain Capital even after he had retired, according The Huffington Post.""

I think we all know why he wouldn't release his tax returns.
It would be even more embarassing than the rumors..........so much for Repugnetard transparency.

You certainly have a right to your opinion. I ask why we need to disrupt the entire healthcare system for the 10%-12% who are uninsured and then only cover about 20% of those? Why make everyone pay for coverage they neither want or need?
I also know someone who signed up for Obamacare. She had issues with high blood pressure and attempted contacting doctors for an appointment. Those who accepted Obamacare were very limited and when she called in the middle of June, she was able to get an appointment the last week of August. She was advised to go to the emergency room if she couldn't wait.
Now that is not workable.
Repeating lies don't make them true.

There is no such thing as "Obamacare" as an insurer. That isn't even the name of the program.

The insurance your friend had is thru a private insurance company. As I understand it, KY did a good job with their private exchange.

So instead of complaining about it, how about helping fix it??

Seems Repugnetards only know the word repeal.

Glad to hear that. Seems they get away with brutality all too often.

Protect and Serve is not assault and beat up the public.

The police in the USA have been militarized since 9-11.

Do you see some of the military equipment htey have??

It's like they're preparing for war inside the country.

They will be released after he leaves office.

What has President Obama done that is so bad that some people have all these irrational ideas, feelings, beliefs and hatred toward him? Why All This Drama Over Obama?

The right wing nut jobs keep screaming about some "Obama Leftist Agenda"....But never offer an explanation of what exactly is this so called conspiracy theory "Obama's leftist agenda"

Probably because THERE ISN'T one...The only thing that there is, is a BLACK man in the WHITE House and it drives these racist pigs crazy!

Good thing OUR next President will be Hillary Clinton a WHITE Woman...HA

Halliburton is an organization that has the reach of a multinational and the eyes of a Willie Sutton. Through its subsidiaries, it has done work with countries the U.S. has accused of supporting terror. It was accused of overcharging the U.S. government for work done in the 1990's, and in 2002 it agreed to pay a $2 million settlement in response to accusations that it had defrauded the government.
The Pentagon is currently examining allegations that the Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg Brown & Root overcharged the government by $61 million for gasoline imported into Iraq from Kuwait. Last week the company acknowledged that at least one employee had participated in a $6.3 million kickback deal with a Kuwaiti company. That money has reportedly been repaid to the government.
What we have here is a private profit-making multinational company with no particular allegiance (other than contractual) to the U.S. government. Nevertheless, through its powerful allies in the government, Halliburton enjoys extraordinary influence over national defense policies and has its own key to the national treasury.
If it's at all grateful, it hasn't shown it. The U.S. is at war. The government is running record deficits. Money is tight everywhere. But Halliburton won't even kick in its fair share. It continues to benefit from the nation's largesse, while scouring the world for places to shelter as much of its American riches as possible.
http://www.nytimes.com/2004/01/30/opinion/the...
1. 2 million dollars settlement on accusations of overcharging which it paid no court proceeding or guilty pleading recorded according to this article.
2. 6.3 million kickback from one KBR employee to the Kuwati govt. KBR paid the government back when it was discovered.
3. Allegations KBR overcharged 61 million for gasoline brought into Iraq from Kuwait. In the article you provided nothing further about this allegation.
So where is the link regarding the Nigerian government?

This is how stupid Eed is.

It was never about Romney not paying taxes he owed. It had to do with how he avoided the tax.

George W. Bush Slips In A Dirty Joke During Civil Rights Speech

"Former President George W. Bush spoke at a Thursday summit celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act.

He discussed having the setting of former President Lyndon Johnson's presidential library. Then came the awkward part.

"Former presidents compare their libraries the way other men may compare their, well..." Bush said, drawing some laughs.""

Rand Paul was correct in his assessment of Halliburton.

"Thereís a great YouTube of Dick Cheney in 1995 defending Bush No. 1 [and the decision not to invade Baghdad in the first Gulf War], and he goes on for about five minutes. Heís being interviewed, I think, by the American Enterprise Institute, and he says it would be a disaster, it would be vastly expensive, itíd be civil war, we would have no exit strategy. He goes on and on for five minutes. Dick Cheney saying it would be a bad idea. And thatís why the first Bush didnít go into Baghdad. Dick Cheney then goes to work for Halliburton. Makes hundreds of millions of dollars, their CEO. Next thing you know, heís back in government and itís a good idea to go into Iraq.Ē
