Doesn't matter what you say. Millions of people would agree that our president is not failing us and because of that fact take my opinion seriously that he has not failed us.
Need I say more? I stand by my opinion and the proof is there for anybody to readily see this if they allow themselves to look at the facts for once instead of focusing on their personal entertainment.
So, I see Obama hasn't failed you and your food stamp card and welfare check arrived on time.

How sweet and nice of Obama.

I see, "incorrect" eh? lol

Well then, please elaborate on where and what specifically you are basing your observations and conclusions on. I will say this post of yours also inspires "chuckles" and one must wonder if you realize how pretentious and fraudulent you come across. I will patiently wait to see your next typed masterpiece which will no doubt add to my evolving opinion on the current status and limits of YOUR "stoopidity". lol

Good for them.

Yeah, they are all but washed up at this point. The president has failed, his people are going down and he won't be far behind...
Fully agree.....His firm is jumping ship to avoid prosecution.
It is in full progress as we speak.

GOP congressman uses Bible to justify punishing the poor

Rep. Stephen Fincher's recent snafu proves that when
quoting from the Good Book, context matters

BY CANDACE CHELLEW-HODGE

Tennessee Republican Rep. Stephen Fincher provides an excellent case study on why context should never be disregarded when quoting from the Bible.

In recent moves by Congress to slash $4.1 billion or more from food stamps (otherwise known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP) over the next 10 years, Fincher quoted from 2 Thessalonians 3:10:

For even when we were with you, we gave you this command: Anyone unwilling to work should not eat.

Fincher used this line to prove his point that lazy poor people shouldn’t be depending on the government to feed them. Of course, Fincher and his fellows are worried because SNAP rolls have swelled by 70% since the financial collapse back in 2008, causing the government to spend $80 billion* to feed poor people. But instead of curbing the bankers’ economy-destroying ways or ending their corporate welfare, they seek to take it out of the stomachs of poor people.

And he abuses the Bible to make his point.

This is why context matters and no one, not even lawmakers who claim to be good Christians, should ever use the Bible as a weapon—especially against poor people.

2 Thessalonians was arguably written by the Apostle Paul. Some dispute his authorship, but the main point here is that the letter was written to the people of Thessalonica at a time when an enthusiastic apocalyptic sect had grown up around the early Christian community there.

Because many of the members of this sect believed that Jesus’ return was imminent, they stopped working. They figured why work when Jesus would be back at any moment to sweep us all into heaven?

This work stoppage by otherwise contributing members of their society was causing great hardship among those who were still working, and not surprisingly, they resented their layabout comrades.

So, the author of this letter laws down the law: If you’re not going to work, you’re not going to eat.

Context matters. Fincher is using a verse written for a specific time, a specific place, and specific situation in Thessalonica thousands of years ago to deprive poor families of food today. This is Bible abuse at its worst....(cont.)

Did you notice NTR's posts are going down too, like the one you just replied to.
heh heh
What's your point, Charlie Brown? One need not post 24/7 to make a point. Besides, the "not right" side makes so many idiotic irrational posts, it would take up the entire day and night trying to set the record straight.

I just don't have that much time for the hopeless and delusional anymore. It's almost summer, and there's plenty to do around here;-) It's a beautiful world right outside my front, back or side doors, and it has some beautiful people in it. Nature is awesome and the grass is green, the landscape serene, the gardens in bloom.

You should at least recognize that what angers or disturbs you is generally not a function of The President's policies - no matter how much you want to assign him the blame. He just doesn't own the majority of what is wrong in America. I assume he's as frustrated with gridlock as every regular in America.

I have seen him pull similar stunts. It never goes well for him either.
I'm just not sure what he gets out of it. Attention? That's just sad.
Personally, I think he has little man syndrome. He tries to make a competition out of everything, which never goes well for him because he never wins. lol
