Truth be told Obama is continuing over 90% of all Bush/Cheney failed policies.

According to Moody’s Analytics Model the rescue of the US economy and the financial crisis by the Obama administration, includes some of the most aggressive fiscal and monetary policies in history! The response was multifaceted and bipartisan, yet almost every one of the policies remains controversial to this day, with critics calling them misguided and ineffective. The fact is, that study after study confirms that its effects on real GDP, jobs and inflation are huge and averted what would have turned into the Great Recession 2.0.

FYI - Don’t Blink, or You’ll Miss Another Bailout

February 18, 2013

Source: NY Times

That the New York Fed would shower favors on a big financial institution may not surprise. It has long shielded large banks from assertive regulation and increased capital requirements.

Still, last week’s details of the undisclosed settlement between the New York Fed and Bank of America are remarkable. Not only do the filings show the New York Fed helping to thwart another institution’s fraud case against the bank, they also reveal that the New York Fed agreed to give away what may be billions of dollars in potential legal claims.

Here’s the skinny: Late last Wednesday, the New York Fed said in a court filing that in July it had released Bank of America from all legal claims arising from losses in some mortgage-backed securities the Fed received when the government bailed out the American International Group in 2008. One surprise in the filing, which was part of a case brought by A.I.G., was that the New York Fed let Bank of America off the hook even as A.I.G. was seeking to recover $7 billion in losses on those very mortgage securities.

Ain’t it funny how the right-wingers get their shorts in a bunch claiming Obama is doing nothing about the threat from Al Qaeda and on the other hand he is a war criminal for ordering drone strikes against Al Qaeda operatives and the "innocents" that they surround themselves with, they are very quick to accuse anyone opposing them as being un-American or trying to accuse them of wanting to compromise national security!

Ain’t it funny how the right-wingers get their shorts in a bunch claiming Obama is a socialist and hates the rich and their success, yet, at the same time, act like they own Christianity. Why then are they enmeshed in materialism, true Christians cultivate a lifestyle of spiritual growth and ministry; they need to cultivate a godly manner of dealing with our money and material possessions. The Bible describes this as a habit of consistent, sacrificial financial giving to God's work and does not include liars and hypocrites!
Ain’t it funny how the right-wingers get their shorts in a bunch claiming Obama is killing civilians with drone attacks? Yet have absolutely no shame or problem turning the city of Baghdad into rubble with an attack named “shock an’ awe,” displacing millions of Iraqi civilians and killing hundreds of thousands more!

OMG, they want Jesus to resurrect the war, but it's too late, it's just a crust, now, of it's former dominance in the forums of topix. But wait, maybe if they try tana leaves that will do the trick? I don't think so, but it would be interesting to see the wrapped crusty war carcass step dragging, to grasp the topix world by the neck one more time with it's powerful grip. Oh well, only in someone's dreams, the doom that came from the hand that touched the war and ensured it's demise cannot be overcome by any means, the war is dead. Tsk tsk tsk, RIP the war.

Ain’t it funny how the right-wingers get their shorts in a bunch claiming Obama is a socialist and hates the rich and their success, yet, U.S. wealth distribution has become so extreme that nearly half of America has, on the average, ZERO WEALTH, meaning their debt exceeds assets. As for income, the richest 1% seemed to perform the impossible from 2009 to 2011, capturing MORE THAN 100% of the new income gains while income decreased for the other 99%. The super wealthy, protected by the GOP, hang onto the foggy and long discredited, notion that a higher tax rate on the rich somehow "hurts the economy."

01. But the question is do you believe that Jesus was born from a virgin who was impregnated by Allah himself?

Wouldn't jesus be higher up on the creator pecking order than merely being a simple self appointed prophet like Muhammad because jesus is the direct sperm from the loin of Allah? I would think son of creator would be worth an additional acknowledgement of respect over prophet of creator Muhammad, wouldn't you?

2...Enlightened muslim scholars conclude that since the poetic verse used in the Koran was only found in the Hebrew scriptures prior to the writing of the Koran, that the scribe used by Muhammad had to be Jewish. But they also pointed out the Biblical errors in the Koran as further proof that it was written by a Jewish rabbi or scribe because only a Jewish rabbi would know enough about the Bible to write such references and make the mistakes that were made...

3...Foul mouthed and short tempered? OUCH Comrade MUQ...that hurts..

4...you ignored the IRAN part of our discussion... Got it Comrade MUQ? Got anwers for me? By all means educate me comrade MUQ...
Ans.

01. No Muslim beliefs that it was Allah which (Allah Forbid even to speak this word for Allah) impregnated Mary the mother of Jesus. As per Quran, it was angel Gbraiel who brough Allah' "command" to Mary to "conceive" and she conceived. So your whole logic is wrong and Non Islamic.

02. Jesus being born of Virgin Mary without any human father and showing all those miracles is some thing which no prophet got. In Quran Allah says that He gave some gifts to some prophets which He did not give to other.

We do not rate prophets one over another, all are equally honorable to us. Jesus might have some special gifts ….but the ranking of prophets is on their Mission and not what gifts they had.

Jesus' mission for "only to Jews" and that too, to given them glad tidings that Kingdom of Heaven is near.

Our prophet's mission was to "establish the Kingdom of Heaven on earth".

When Jesus was hanged on cross there was "no one of his followers to rescue him"

When our prophet dies, he had more than 125,000 dedicated followers ready to die for him and the whole of Arabia was under his sole command.

3. I do not know what you mean by "enlightened Muslim Scholars". May be those who speak in the language of Western Islamic Scholars.

That prophet used Jewish slave boys and Christian slave boys and X and Y are only theories inside your head…..there is no proof and there shall be never a proof.

The proof is Quran, it says that "if you are in doubt about who wrote this Quran then bring a book like ir, or ten chapter like it or ten chapters like it"!!

If a person who did not know how to read or write with a "committee" of some Jewish or Christian slaves (not knowing very good Arabic of course) could write an eternal masterpiece like Quran, why can't millions of Arabic speaking Jews and Christians with all modern aid, could being one chapter like Quran?

I did not know that "under your skin" of atheism and rationality you have the same uncouth and hate and inferiority complex filled personality that is so common.

It seems you are no comrade , Comrade AB.

Why should I discuss Iran with such a person like you, who even does not understand what basic Islam is.

President Obama's State of the Union call to raise the minimum wage to $9 will ironically hurt his core supporters: young people and minorities, the Wall Street Journal argues in an editorial. "Setting a floor under the price of labor creates winners and losers," the editors argue. Some workers will get a raise, "But others—typically the least educated and skilled—will be priced out of the job market and their pay won't rise to $9. It will be zero." The proposed change would increase unemployment, they argue, without combating poverty, since few minimum wage earners are primary household breadwinners. "It'd be nice to think that some Republicans, even one, would make the moral case that the minimum wage hurts the poorest workers," but instead they usually fold on it, the paper laments.

There's a reason for that. Eleanor Craft at the Daily Beast points out that minimum wage increases are overwhelmingly popular; one survey last year found almost all Democrats, 74% of independents, and 50% of Republicans in favor. Paul Krugman at the New York Times, meanwhile, argues that the effects would be "overwhelmingly positive," and benefit "hard-working but low-paid Americans" without raising government spending. As for the argument that bumping the wage will eliminate jobs, Krugman writes that there's plenty of evidence to the contrary, much of it touching on the simple fact that "workers aren't bushels of wheat." They're people, and "the human relationships involved in hiring and firing" them are complex. "One byproduct of this human complexity seems to be that modest increases in wages for the least-paid don’t necessarily reduce the number of jobs."

Guns are almost always used as a offensive weapon and for defense at all!
The NRA has argued consistently that guns are valuable—indeed, vital—for home defense. We have heard a good deal from the NRA about how a gun defends a home. Wayne LaPierre, the group’s executive liar in chief and increasingly unhinged public face, has been out talking about how everyone needs guns to be prepared for a coming time of financial crisis and natural disaster (huh). But, what about the broader implications, and added risks, of keeping guns in the house? It makes a domestic conflict far more likely to escalate and result in a murder, just ask Oscar Pistorius killing his girlfriend in a domestic dispute. He "stood his ground" when shooting his loving woman 5 times through the bathroom door. Domestic violence and assaults involving a firearm are 23 times more likely to result in death than those involving other weapons or bodily force. When it comes to domestic disputes you are actually a lot less safe if there is a gun in the home. Without access to guns many of these fatal assaults would have merely resulted in injuries or would not have escalated at all.

I do not hate any discussion...but you should always use civil language when writing to me.

Be very careful when you speak about God, Allah and prophets of Allah, like Moses, Jesus, Mohammad, may peace be on them.

Do not use uncouth words when writing about them.

If you have no feeling and regards for them , billions of other have.

If you cannot do it, then do not discuss with me.

I hope you will follow these "trivialities"
