I guess the daily schedule doesn't include "everything" eh Junebug?
If you haven't noticed he hardly ever goes to the daily briefings!!! It's been news since he was elected the first time that he doesn't go. He prefers to read the reports himself.(yeah right!!!)

Leosnana is sooooooo funny trying to compare my identifying a few liberals on here with some of the kids' characters in Willy Wonka to a documentary.

And, yes, "The Square", is a documentary. No actors. No reenacting anything. It's real people who recorded a real revolution as it was happening in real Egypt in 2011 and 2012.

Bet you just learned the difference between the two, didn't you?

From Birmingham to Ferguson, a brief history of how racial tensions at home have undermined America abroad.
Americans are not the only ones who have been riveted by the news out of Ferguson, Missouri, over the past two weeks. The images of tear gas-filled streets and camouflaged police pointing semiautomatic guns at unarmed demonstrators in the U.S. heartland have attracted laughable hypocrisy from around the world. Iran's grand ayatollah decried the "brutal treatment" of African-Americans in the United States. The major news organ in China pointed to Ferguson, where a police officer killed an unarmed black teenager, Michael Brown, as indicative of America's "human rights flaw." News broadcasts in Russia noted dryly, "Cases of racism are still not rare in the nation of exemplary democracy." And Egypt, which has come under heavy U.S. diplomatic fire for massacring protesters during the overthrow of the Muslim Brotherhood a year ago, threw right back at President Barack Obama his words urging "restraint and respect for the right of assembly and peaceful expression of opinion."
....just as the dismantling of the Jim Crow laws over the course of the 1960s failed to put an end to racial discrimination in the United States, neither did the end of the Cold War in the 1980s put an end to how racial discrimination at home affects America's image abroad.
In 2005, just two years into the war in Iraq that was cast as Operation Iraqi Freedom, Hurricane Katrina slammed into the U.S. Gulf Coast, inundating New Orleans. Thousands of Americans, the overwhelming majority of them poor and black, were trapped in a drowning city. The soaring rhetoric about democracy that had cloaked the war in Iraq quickly fell to earth -- in part due to the spectacle at the Superdome in New Orleans. Even the conservative-leaning Daily Mail in Britain, recognized that: "Here is a country that is able to overthrow a dictator if it chooses, but is so immersed in the outcome of a war that it is incapable of reacting accordingly to the problems of hundreds of thousands of its own citizens effected [sic] by a natural disaster." El Mundo, Spain's leading newspaper, emphasized that the disaster in New Orleans "highlights the weaknesses of a country so preoccupied by its imperialist adventures that it is neglecting its most valuable asset -- the well-being of its people." France's Libération further explained, "Katrina has revealed America's weaknesses: its racial divisions, the poverty of those left behind by its society, and especially its president's lack of leadership." Hamburg-based Die Welt was even more succinct: "America is ashamed."
Fast-forward three years and Obama's election seemed to signal to the world that the United States had overcome its sordid past. It marked a chance, as one Iranian reporter said, for America to "fix its image in the world."

That's because Obama promised Putin to become more "flexible" after his reelection.

And after Hillary's big photo op pushing that "reset" button with Russia.

And right before Russia invaded another country and made Obama look like a weakling with Assad and Syria.

Are you really this dumb? Or the dumber?

Seriously, sonic. It's sometimes very hard to be civil with people like you. Get a friggin' clue.

Obamacare Welfare Expansion

Inquiring minds may be asking "How did Obamacare effect welfare numbers?"

Let's take a look.

Anyone making up to 400% of the federal poverty minimum is eligible for some assistance. That's about 17 million according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

Also note that 28 states expanded Medicaid under Obamacare: AZ, AR, CA, CO, DE, DC, HI, IL, IA, KY, MD, MA, MN, MA, NH, NV, NJ, UT, NM, NY, ND, OH, OR, PA, RI, VT, WA, WV.

On June 4, the US Department of Health and Human Services reported Medicaid Enrollment Shows Continued Growth in April.

"As of the end of April, 6 million more individuals were enrolled in Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) as compared to the period before the initial open enrollment under the Affordable Care Act started."

In addition to regular expansion of welfare, it's safe to conclude Obamacare expanded the welfare rolls by at least 23 million.

More will come.

Welfare vs. Full-Time Employment
Let's take the 2012 welfare total of 109,631,000 and add the 6 million Obamacare Medicaid expansion and the 17 million who get Obamacare subsidies and you have a minimum of 126 million receiving some sore of means-tested welfare vs. 118.5 million who "usually" work full time.

Welfare vs. Population
The 2013 US Population Estimate is 316 million.

Using 316 million as a rough estimate of the 2014 population (it would likely be higher) and 126 million on welfare (that number is also higher, perhaps way higher), about 40% of the country is on some form of means-tested welfare, up from 35.4% at the end of 2012.

Over 50% of the country gets welfare or some other form of non-means-tested assistance. I estimate about 56% or so.

There are quite a few liberal Fox News contributors on the payroll who always provide the other side's point of view.
How many conservatives are on the payrolls of liberal news outlets who are given equal time and respect and frequently give their side of any issue?
Seriously. Answer the question. It's an important question.
MSNBC has an equal balance between Communists, Socialists, radical Muslims, and black liberation theologists....

Eric Holder Riots Hoax: Ferguson Gang Leader Says Attorney General ‘Paid Us To Start Riots’ is Fake; From National Report
Eric Holder, the US Attorney General, did not organize riots for gangs in Ferguson, Missouri.
However, an article published on satire website National Report has tricked many on Sunday. The National Report posts fake news that often attempts to rile up conservatives and Republicans.

What's even laughable is the fact that someone judged your post as "spam", "racy" and "disagree". Just goes to support my claim that they are braindead.

You and ole' Jimmy do know militant Islamists are teaching jihad in the mosques here in the U.S. too?
He will be the keynote speaker; discussing his book about the religious persecution of women!
The Jews are upset about it; claiming he is anti Israel. It should be interesting; I'd love to be in the audience to hear the comments.
