<quoted text>...sorry this was not for me and as for your advice but I will weigh in on this! I have been on here less than a year AND I could see/read/tell that TOO much of what you just said-sad, but is the truth! So much deceiving in order to gain WHAT? In the end they will lose. One has to discern the liar, who has placed their self on that pedestal with such lies of glory in order to gain that trust. All who believe that person will lose always! Such a person is shamefully and willfully out to gain in their own self interests by deceiving! It is very evident with one person on here! "It" tries too hard with "its" successes after the pitiful life before hand-all the while begrudging others of their blessings. That is ALWAYS a tell-tale sign!
Besides that, "it" is truly the bigot while calling others out as such!
I'm sorry whatthehey but I also wanted to weigh in on this. The radical right doesn't even come close to representing true conservatives. Neither the conservatives nor the liberals have a lock on the truth about everything. One has to weigh the truth as to ones knowledge, education and intelligence. No one knows what the exact truth really is. We know what we read, what we have experienced along with our knowledge of things and come up with what we believe the truth to be. Each side does this and each has it's bias. Somewhere between the two tends to be the safest and least destructive truth. That of coarse is my opinion.

As to groups that agree about many things or just happen to like each other .... yes they will stick together if one or the other is being attacked or they are speaking about things they agree on. That goes for both sides of things and a very natural thing to do.
Now most of your post was being pointed at Ntr....very apparent. She is neither dangerous or wrong about everything which is how it seems you see her. But I understand that you don't like her and see her as a villian. She isn't really...she's an American Citizen like yourself and as such she is one that knows what she believes and she will act on those things. Just as all of us do that post on these threads...at least I believe they do.

We can't afford to continue to alienate each other in the way we are doing now. Our mutual Country is having problems and it will take our mutual actions to help the situation.

Just my thoughts about all of this.

Ryan Budget Would Slash SNAP
March 14, 2013

http://www.offthechartsblog.org/ryan-budget-w...

Millions of people would lose part or all of their Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as food stamps) benefits under the new budget from House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, according information that the committee staff provided during yesterday’s mark up.

The Ryan budget, like those he proposed in 2011 and 2012, would slash funding for programs for the needy and disadvantaged. Although the plan lacks many details, it appears that it would cut SNAP — the nation’s most important anti-hunger program — by $135 billion or almost 18 percent over the next ten years. Since more than 90 percent of SNAP expenditures go to food assistance, a cut of that size would require restricting SNAP eligibility for needy people, slashing benefits, or both.(cont.)

..........

The report points out that if the cuts were effected by restricting eligibility, 8-9 million people would lose food subsidy. Otherwise, it would result in a cut of about $24.00 per person in 2016 dollars.

IF we DON'T cut our way into bringing the economy to a HALT (under Ryan's slash and gut budget proposal), as a percentage of GDP, SNAP has been forecast to reduce to 1995 levels by 2019. It's not contributing to the long term deficit in this nation. LEAVE IT ALONE and help feed the children who are our future. They have no power to "just get a job".

Deficit Reduction Should Not Increase Poverty and Hardship

If Low-Income Programs Are Targeted, Consequences Could Be Widespread and Long-Lasting

By Arloc Sherman, Sharon Parrott, Indivar Dutta-Gupta, and Jimmy Charite

March 11, 2013

http://www.cbpp.org/cms/index.cfm...

Executive Summary

With President Obama and lawmakers of both parties vowing to achieve further deficit reduction, the stakes are high for low- and moderate-income Americans. If policymakers heavily target programs that serve vulnerable Americans, they will run the risk of increasing poverty and hardship and reducing opportunity for those on the lower rungs of the economic ladder, limiting their future educational and employment prospects. If, however, policymakers take a more balanced approach to deficit reduction, one that includes adequate new revenues to complement additional spending cuts, they can further reduce deficits while maintaining the resources to invest in key building blocks of future prosperity, including effective services and supports for poor families and children.(cont.)

At the same time he's starving American citizens Ryan would be increasing military spending and giving the wealthy another nice big tax break.

Losing an election taught these people nothing about how far out of touch they are with the American people.

It looks like they've decided to double down on stupid.

I can't find anything to support in the Republican budget proposal. Can you? I pointed out yesterday how far from the Republican perspective I have been driven since the last couple of years under George Bush. Everything I've learned since then just drives me further away. I don't recognize the party, and I think that's because they've driven away all moderate voices. In fact, the core group of supporters just despises moderate thinking altogether, so what's to like? Nothing much from where I sit. Budget analysts don't have a clue what to say about them either.

I cannot imagine trying to "compromise" with this bunch of Republican lunatics. I hope he'll just say "screw it" and let 2014 be the referendum on what we do and who is in charge.

There's no such thing as compromise with the tea party or the far right of the republican base.

They're about as open to compromise as the Taliban and almost as dangerous.

Just about as popular too.

It doesn't take a democrat to see how hateful and destructive they are.

Just a brain and some concern for the well being of this country.

What's scariest to me is that they believe they have so much corporate power that they can do that. The Koch brothers are out and about trying to buy some newspapers to add to their portfolio and as a means to expand their propaganda machine.

I take heart in the fact that they couldn't buy this election, and I hope Obama will stick to his commitments. After all, the guy is a free market capitalist and moderately conservative himself, but you'd never know it from the way he has been vilified on this thread.

Holder blames 'young blacks' for gun problem
What did Attorney General Eric Holder mean when he said in a 1995 speech he wanted to “brainwash” perpetrators of gun violence into giving up their weapons?
Read more at http://www.wnd.com/2013/03/holder-blames-youn...
No, Holder did not blame young black men for gun violence, but he was addressing the need to change the image some young black men in certain communities have of guns.

“At that time, Washington, D.C., was the murder capital of the country, and I was talking about young black guys who see movies, television, stuff that glorifies the use of the guns, the possession of guns; and what I said is that we need to counter those images..."

You might take note that in the middle of that page is a link with a caption telling people who are afraid of "tanks in the streets" where they can find out about the coming "police state" and the most popular article on that site right now happens to be one about people who believe and angel has visited Florida.

They even have a picture of a cloud to prove it's true.

The moral of this story is, consider your source and use a little common sense if you want to be taken seriously.

Obamacare 'Uninsurables' Program Quietly Winds Down As Funding Dries Up
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/15/obam...
The program is running out of money to fund it. You do understand that we have a Sequester in place, and not just caps but cuts are also underway? Starting January 1, 2014, those not now covered will be able to obtain coverage when the ACA goes into full effect. So, there's a lag that will harm some who didn't get erolled in time and will cause others to have to wait for 9-10 more months. It's a pity, but there was an allocation of a set amount. Nevertheless, your sister was undoubtedly saved as were many others who otherwise would have had no recourse. Be grateful for what it DID do - not the limitations that were reached in serving the many it helped.

Would love to have explained to NTR that Jesus was not a socialist, so her embrace of religion & liberalism has an inherent contradiction embedded at its core. Jesus was fuzzy about a lot of things, but his explanation of man's relationship to Caesar and where God's kingdom lies was not at all difficult to grasp. But good luck pulling a guerilla-stye beret over his Crown of Thorns and replacing his palm fronds with an AK-47! You lefties are a hoot!

You keep confusing being popular with being right. Hitler flooded the streets with dizzy, swooning, adoring fans. He was more popular than the Beatles, Rolling Stones and Madonna put together. It took Stalingrad and Allied bombers to wake them up.(And that was a bunch of lily-white, fairly educated and Western people.)
Sometimes people can't see they're wrong until the proverbial sheiz hits the fan. You seem like one of them.
While I regret that so many people can't see through Herr Obama's comically stupid BS, that doesn't alter that fact that it's pure BS by one septillionth of an iota.
Reality gets the last vote and that's the only one that counts.
In deciding whose opinion matters, I'm inclined to stick with the numbers people who get paid to analyze and assess facts and figures. If they think a budget is a bone headed and destructive idea, my inclination is to give them credit that they probably know a lot better than I what the situation is. In that regard, maybe you should read more and attack less. You actually don't seem to know sh*t from shinola (I think that's one of your or your palsiwalsi's expressions recently, although I know I've used it in the past) about numbers and economics.

Speaking of BS, that's what you spew 99.2% of the time. The other .8% is usually just hyperbole.

You see, every four years in this country we elect or re-elect a President. People go to the polls and cast their vote for the candidate of their choice, and that's how the President gets elected and/or re-elected.
Now I suspect you're going to tell me how it was a conspiracy and that Constitutional law was somehow broken. Give it your best shot. LOL!
How can an alien be placed on a ballot for POTUS, this violated Art 2, sect 1, para 5 and the 14th amendment of the Constitution.
