Mitt Romney asserted that the 47 percent of Americans who had no federal income tax liability would “vote for the president no matter what.”
Actually, a lot them don’t vote, and of those who do, many vote Republican.

From Rules for Radicals written by Saul Alinsky, Obama spent years teaching workshops on the Alinsky method. In 1985 he began a four-year stint as a community organizer in Chicago, working for an Alinskyite group called the Developing Communities Project. Camouflage is key to Alinsky-style organizing. While trying to build coalitions of black churches in Chicago, Obama caught flak for not attending church himself. He became an instant churchgoer.
Silver I think it was you that asked why everything Obama does seems to be screwed up, why everyone is divided. Does this look anything like what you're seeing?
"An organizer must stir up dissatisfaction and discontent... He must create a mechanism that can drain off the underlying guilt for having accepted the previous situation for so long a time. Out of this mechanism, a new community organization arises....
"The job then is getting the people to move, to act, to participate; in short, to develop and harness the necessary power to effectively conflict with the prevailing patterns and change them. When those prominent in the status quo turn and label you an 'agitator' they are completely correct, for that is, in one word, your function—to agitate to the point of conflict." p.117

Also from Alinsky.
Always remember the first rule of power tactics (pps.127-134):
1. "Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have."
2. "Never go outside the expertise of your people. When an action or tactic is outside the experience of the people, the result is confusion, fear and retreat....[and] the collapse of communication.
3. "Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy. Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.(This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)
4. "Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity."
5. "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage."
6. "A good tactic is one your people enjoy."
7. "A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. Man can sustain militant interest in any issue for only a limited time...."
8. "Keep the pressure on, with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose."
9. "The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself."
10. "The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign."
11. "If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside... every positive has its negative."
12. "The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative."
13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. In conflict tactics there are certain rules that [should be regarded] as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and 'frozen.'...
"...any target can always say,'Why do you center on me when there are others to blame as well?' When your 'freeze the target,' you disregard these [rational but distracting] arguments.... Then, as you zero in and freeze your target and carry out your attack, all the 'others' come out of the woodwork very soon. They become visible by their support of the target...'
"One acts decisively only in the conviction that all the angels are on one side and all the devils on the other." (pps.127-134)
#30164 Sep 18, 2012
And one more
"The qualities Alinsky looked for in a good organizer were:
ego ("reaching for the highest level for which man can reach — to create, to be a 'great creator,' to play God"),
curiosity (raising "questions that agitate, that break through the accepted pattern"),
irreverence ("nothing is sacred"; the organizer "detests dogma, defies any finite definition of morality"),
imagination ("the fuel for the force that keeps an organizer organizing"),
a sense of humor ("the most potent weapons known to mankind are satire and ridicule"), and an
organized personality with confidence in presenting the right reason for his actions only "as a moral rationalization after the right end has been achieved.'...
"'The organizer's first job is to create the issues or problems,' and 'organizations must be based on many issues.' The organizer 'must first rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; fan the latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expression. He must search out controversy and issues, rather than avoid them, for unless there is controversy people are not concerned enough to act.... An organizer must stir up dissatisfaction and discontent.'"
Hmm, wow....Obama follows this to a T! He should, he's an expert in Alinsky.

May I say, I fear if a person were to espouse the original intent and scope of the US Constitution, that person may well be labeled an extremist.
Looking at what is, and has been, going on in Washington, I'd have to say the majority of those in Congress, those in the Executive branch, and those in the justice department are in breech of the Constitution and their oaths to protect and follow it.

Can't wait for next years hurricane names.
Just when you think you have heard all of the stupid things that are going on in the United States, this nonsense comes along, American Negro Hurricanes....
Well, it appears our American Negro friends have found yet something else to whine and bitch about.. An American Negro Congress Woman (this would be Sheila Jackson Lee, of Houston ), complained that the names of hurricanes are all Caucasian sounding names.
She would prefer some names that reflect American Negro Culture such as Chamiqua, Tanisha, Woeisha, Shaquille, and Jamal.
She would also like the weather reports to be broadcast in 'language' that street people can understand because one of the problems that happened in New Orleans was, that American Negro people couldn't understand the seriousness of the situation, due to the racially biased language of the weather report.
I guess if the weather person says that the winds are going to blow at 140+ MPH, that's too hard to understand
I can hear it now: A weatherman in New Orleans says...:
"Wazzup, mutha-fukkas! Hehr-i-cane Chamiqua be headin' fo' yo ass like Leroy on a rocket!
Bitch be a category fo'! So, turn off dem chitlins, grab yo' chirren, leave yo crib, and head fo' de nearest FEMA office fo yo FREE shit!"

Don't miss Obama's New Rap Song...
"U Didn't Build That by MC 'Bama"
Barack Obama raps about "You Didn't Build That"
By Hugh Atkin
Mitt Romney strikes me, so hard.
Makes me feel like Shirley Sherrod.
Out of context, those words aren't mine.
The private sector's doing fine.
Feels good, when the economy's weak,
Responding with a national security leak.
Osama Bin Laden, I killed.
And that was a mission you didn't build.
If you've given three dollars before,
I'm asking again for a few dollars more.
Clint Eastwood and the empty chair
Would be bettter than this Republican pair.
Shut up, it's my turn.
Let's rap together. Go ahead. You've got a lot to learn.
Mr Ryan and his voucher retailin'.
Maybe he's just a brighter shade of Palin.
Mr Romney...and his friends on Wall Street.
What I'm saying is they're SuperPacking Heat.
And here is a woman Mitt killed.
But that was an attack ad you didn't build.
[JENNIFER GRANHOLM BREAKS IT DOWN]
The race is still in play.
So I gotta be careful about what I say.
And so, from the Australian nation,
I'll be introducing the Strine translation.
The Republican party in the debt ceiling fight.
Ravings of the eccentric, lunar right.
There are those who don't believe my birth certificate.
There are nut jobs on the internet.
To your guns keep on clinging.
To myself I'll be singing...
"I so in love with you."
What we need now is the Colbert Bump.
But, just for a minute lets all do the Trump.
Trump, Trump, Trump. Yeeeaah. Not bad, huh?
[HULK HOGAN INTERVIEW]
Hogan, this is the real American booking.
Do you smell what Barack is cooking?
Morning in America? Not quite.
It's pre-dawn, but we will soon see the light.
Financial straits remain dire.
You've got to remember I did not start this fire.
It was Notorious G.O.P.
And if you choose to vote for me,
I will not just call you maybe.
I am ready to go all the way, baby.
That promise will be fulfilled.
So join this chorus, you didn't build.

Alleged Audio of Barack Obama in 1998:‘I Actually Believe In Redistribution’

CNBC poll today after the media has gone on and on and on and on about Romney's 47% comment
Do you agree with Romney's statement?
Total Votes: 23610
Not a Scientific Survey
Results may not total 100% due to rounding
Interesting...bc it was true!

It is a paradoxical truth that tax rates are too high today,and tax revenues are too low,and the soundest way to raise the revenues in the long run is to cut tax rates...An economy constrained by high tax rates will never produce revenue to balance the budget, just as it will never create enough jobs for enough profits.

There is no sin greater in a presidential race than telling the truth. Romney is being excoriated for accurately describing the situation in America today. Here are the stats:
*49% of all Americans pay no fed income tax
*47% receive a check from the government of which more than half are means tested welfare checks (Medicaid, welfare, food stamps, etc.)
*36% of all Americans of working age are either not working or looking for work.
Every time Romney tells the truth, the media tears him apart. Every time Obama opens his mouth, he's lying, and the media says nothing.

According to reports, the Islamist animals who murdered J. Christopher Stevens, our Ambassador to Libya, sodomized him before, while, and after he was killed. They followed the same formula they used when they murdered Gadhafi. To these 7th century “warriors”, doing such things shows the extreme disrespect they have for the male victims. In their half- witted minds, this “manly” act makes the victim a woman in death and in life after death. They are misogynist skunks who hate women because of their own sick feelings of inadequacy. Hillary Clinton should have known these things but apparently never bothered herself with details.
The blood of J. Christopher Stevens, a man who happened to be gay but had a love of America that compelled him to step forward to work for our nation, is absolutely on the hands of Hillary Clinton as the fake she is and Barack Obama for the incompetent he is.
Clinton is a woman with no particular qualifications, except that she “took one for the team” and allowed herself to be publicly humiliated by her sexually depraved husband.
Because she “put ice on her lip” and sung “Stand by your man” on 60 Minutes, the poster boy for degradation of women was elected and reelected to the presidency. The Democrats who are a Party that rewards degenerates have been thanking Hillary ever since she and her husband sold their last pardon on January 20, 2001.
We know her career path. She pushed aside all qualified and loyal New York State Democrats (Nita Lowey comes to mind) so she could run in the deepest Blue State that suited her fancy without a difficult race. She tried to be the president but was out-“race-carded” as her pervert husband put it.
To stay in the public’s eye, she accepted the position of Secretary of State and has done an horrifically bad job at it. That happens when being a good Democrat is the only consideration for appointment to a position of high trust and importance.
For reasons known only to her, she successfully urged Barack Obama to help the Muslim Brotherhood overthrow the American-friendly Mubarack government in Egypt and help the Brotherhood kill Gadhafi in Libya.
Then she installed a man she knew to be gay (she said she knew him well) as the Ambassador to a country controlled by vicious gay-hating animals. She did this to win favor with America’s gay community so they would keep contributing to the Democrat Party. Now Chris Stevens has been killed and sodomized by the people Hillary Clinton helped put in power throughout the Middle East. Any questions?

Right-wingers, who make up the largest portion of Mitt's 47%(more than blacks or hispanics), agree with him that they are moochers and too dependent on government. But Romney realizes that these trailer park people and noodlers are not gonna vote for Obama, and most of them are not smart enough to even realize he is talking about them.
They will take the beating Romney puts on them and then go vote for him to further cut their own throats.

Sheila Jackson Lee....
This is what she has time for? This is what she is being paid to do? This is racist coming from a Representative.
Why would anyone even name their children names like you listed. Name profiling in human resources is real. People are judged by their names. Why would any of these made up, stuck-together names be used at all except to separate ethnicities?

The USA has been going down for decades and it will continue no matter who is in office Democrat or Republican as your post described. We are now in a global economy with trade agreements.
