<quoted text>Why is it that you used to be able to think, and now you're incompetent? We can actually start by acknowledging a couple of realities. The baby boomers are maturing and getting sicker, finding it even more difficult to get a job, and they aren't able to claim benefits yet. Some of them lost pensions and savings during the Recession. Some nearing retirement are applying for disability pensions because they can't perform the only jobs being offered (minimum wage labor intense jobs). What about our returning vets who cannot find work and who are also suffering PTSD? Do you want to pretend they aren't? One more time: get your representatives behind Obama's AJA legislation and tell them to support that legislation to put Americans back to work. Our CONGRESS is failing. The legislation is there and would help a great deal.
Who isn't going to fail the middle class? The Tea bigots? The Republicans? Who is it you SHOULD be angry with? It isn't Obama. Your other option would have been Mitt Romney, and do you seriously think you'd have been happier today under a Romney presidency? Go ahead. Say why you think you would be - IF you do.
We have to bring back better (read tax contributing) jobs and discourage outsourcing.

No lady. It is you who fails to open your eyes to the failures of the current administration. President Obama has been in office for five long years and what has he accomplished? He has managed to give away trillions of dollars to wall street bankers and he has managed to force American citizens to pay trillions of dollars into the billionaires in the corporate insurance pool so that the CEO's and Executives of those insurance companies can take even bigger bonuses while denying the clients medical bills.

Iran? Obama has sent the democratic loser Kerry over there to kiss their butts, lift the sanctions and allow them to build a nice Iranian Obamabomb before Obama leaves office in 2017. How does that make you feel? Nice and socialistic!

Obama gave a speech this week where he tried to say something about working class Americans. Even with his speech being scrolled on his teleprompter, Obama was unconvincing. He cannot speak on working class subjects because he has never been working class. Obama was born dependent upon government programs for his daily bread. He continued to live on the backs of the working class all the way through college. All the while, Obama was a taker. After college, Obama continued to be a taker as he used federal programs to sustain his lifestyle as a community organizer and used the taker class and laws created to protect them to go after corporate banks who wouldn't loan money to people who couldn't repay those loans. After the landmark lawsuit was settled, Obama made more money than all the alleged victims combined. His clients filed bankruptcy as he bought a mansion on the wealthy side of Chicago. After that, Obama became a politician. A crooked one at that. So, Obama is uncomfortable speaking to working class Americans. He doesn't know us. He cannot talk his way around the facts with us. We work for a living. We pay our tax. We now will be forced to buy a insurance policy that we cannot afford. Obama single handedly gave our employers a one year break from his namesake program but he shut the government down before he would allow our elected representatives to give us the same break Obama gave to our employers. So, Who is footing the bill for Obamacare? Those of us who get up in the morning and go to work. That's who. Obama has failed us.

How is that Obama's fault? Be specific.
Since when is it the President's responsibility to take care of the middle class, and what past president has ever been held to such a responsibility?
You fail yourself. Grow up. Obama is not your parent.
Obama is the cheif executive officer of this nation. When things go right, he gets the credit. When things go wrong, he is supposed to get the blame. Things are going wrong in this nation. Lots of things. But to Obama and his legions of minions, nothing is his fault. Nothing! Record high debt, record high unemployment, record high taxes, record high disability claims, record high food stamp recipients, record high welfare recipients, and the list goes on and on. Obama takes no responsibility for any of it. He is a failure. He has the nerve to say that he will use his powers as president to make things happen? He has bee in that effing office for five years now! Why hasn't he used his powers as president to help out the middle class before now? He had no problem telling immigration enforcement to quit enforcing immigration law. He had no problem using his imaginary powers to delay the employer mandate to Obamacare. He had no problem using his super power to attack border states when they tried to take care of the problems plaguing them. He had no problem using his power to bail out corporations and banks. Why can't he use those powers to help out the working class? Do bibles and guns have the same effect on Obama that kryptonite has on Superman? Is that why he wants to get rid of bibles and guns? Obama is a failure and the main stream liberal media is afraid to report it.

Don't complain to me about "wordiness", and absolutely no more baloney from you about "all over the place".

The Federal Reserve and how it works:

http://www.federalreserve.gov/faqs/about_1498...

The Federal Reserve System fulfills its public mission as an independent entity within government. It is not "owned" by anyone and is not a private, profit-making institution.

As the nation's central bank, the Federal Reserve derives its authority from the Congress of the United States. It is considered an independent central bank because its monetary policy decisions do not have to be approved by the President or anyone else in the executive or legislative branches of government, it does not receive funding appropriated by the Congress, and the terms of the members of the Board of Governors span multiple presidential and congressional terms.

However, the Federal Reserve is subject to oversight by the Congress, which often reviews the Federal Reserve's activities and can alter its responsibilities by statute. Therefore, the Federal Reserve can be more accurately described as "independent within the government" rather than "independent of government.(cont.)

Hi WA and thank you.
What a lovely and refreshing thing to read. I've finally learned to not take them seriously and to be more selective about who I reply to. So much of it is simply a waste of time and energy I realized.
It's people like you I admire though. You held your own without ever stooping to their level. We go back a long way here, that's for sure and you've been a great friend to me and others here too.
Well I meant every word. You Rock!
Take care.

Food stamps? How about minimum wage jobs in America and reduced hours where the 40 hour work week has been abandoned in favor of part-time or temporary labor jobs that keeps working Americans at below the poverty line?

I hate to do this, but I'm going to anyway before some Republican tea bigot pipes up about minority use of foodstamps:

https://twitter.com/UniteWomenTN/status/42911...

The highest food stamp usage in America is in Owsley County, Kentucky which is 99.22% white and 95% Republican.

..........

Now, it really doesn't matter what color or where, but it matters a lot that so many on the right don't comprehend the problem and prefer to assign the blame to ONE man - the sitting President. This has been festering and growing for decades, but the truth is that Bush's Great Recession has focused our attention as we have all been gravely harmed save for the plutocrats - which includes a very substantial number of our congressional Representatives.

Take a good look:

Plutocrats supporting plutocracy. That is who I personally blame. You can continue fooling yourself if it gives you a cause.

So, what you are saying is that Mitt Romney speaks the language of the "working class"? LOLOLOL. Now, I 'm coming across as Miss Piggy who wants to tell you what your're saying. Nevertheless, when you post about what you perceive as Obama's shortcomings, I think you have to contrast and compare with the ALTERNATIVE rather than just b*tching all of the time. I know that's what I had to do when it came time to go to the polls. What did you do? Sit on your azz? Or, did you vote for that champion of the middle class, Mitt Romney?

Now, kindly put a lid on it or start pointing to policies and potential candidates that you believe can change the dynamic in America to demonstrate concern, compassion, and a genuine "understanding" of the plight of the middle class. Which Tea bigot or Republican would that be?

The foregoing is exactly why I continue to say that our President hasn't failed us. Our Congress has failed to act and to compromise across the aisle to get anything done. It is the worst Congress ever, and it's a d*mned pity you don't get it.

But, take heart. Obama may not be able to budge them toward passing helpful legislation, but he will use the tools available to him to get SOMETHING done before it's all said and done. Quitcher' b*tchin' nonstop. You could be under Republican rule right now, and how, exactly, do you believe they'd be helpful to 99% of us?

I've got a better idea. Show me how you can circumvent the policies of the Federal Reserve and how the President can override them. You're still whining and bellyaching. How about you express some ideas for a change, because I don't recall having a vote on the powers of The Federal Reserve. Did I miss that?

Show me when that was on the ballot.

Barack Obama's Presidency Is A Complete Failure By His Own, Self-Imposed Standards
At the end of 2013, after serving five years, Barack Obama is a complete failure as President, by his own standards, as reflected in his own words.
How many times has President Obama told us that he is “fighting for the middle class”? But real median family income has been in a continuous downward spiral since he became President, actually falling more since the recession ended in the summer of 2009 according to the National Bureau of Economic Research than during the recession. That has added up by now to the middle class losing a month’s pay a year under President Obama’s economic policies.

There you go again. It's all about you. You are a self centered, crude, rude, off topic swine of a human being. Why is it that after seven years of posting on these threads, you have never posted a comment that related to the subject of the thread? Really! Go find a job and pay your fair share of the taxes that supports Obama's failed policies.
Hi DP, I haven't posted directly to you in a long time. Rose thanked me for what I posted and what I posted was all about Rose. Why do you tell Rose to get a job when she is of retirement age are you? She has every right to be here and post to who ever she wants to and really she isn't the topic.
I know that you have a lot of good in you but right now your ranting but don't take out your frustrations on people whose only crime was to not agree with you.
