Obama is buying the votes of the illegal invaders and voluntarily unemployed by giving to 50% of the Americans 'liberal tax freedom' and free checks paid by the other half of Americans that he hates. The communist dictator who follow the dreams of his father about self destructed new America Obama speech was empty and dull and it reminded the speeches of Fidel Castro and Chavez who told their people that they should go blind after them for a new future that only dictators know what it will be. Obama proved that he is am empty suit and that he uses the word ‘Fair’ which was never mentioned in the Us Constitution even one time but it is based on the Soul Alinsky and Carl Marx ideology of fairness under the Union supported dictator such as Stalin. Obama talked like a child about his foreign policy and his surrender to the Russian and Chinese regime that realized that he is incompetent pacifist that will never stand up for nothing good for the interest of the American people. Obama speech was intended to those liberals who go blind after him and to ignorant, misinformed and brainwashed by the liberal media Americans that cannot differentiate between a ruthless dictator who represents foreign agenda and the true American patriotic leader who fight for the American constitution. Obama speech was intended to the godless Americans who cannot find the different between good and evil and to the parasites Americans who voluntarily stopped working and living on Obama’s check in return for voting for him. Obama speech was intended to the Union members and to the American parasites who do not pay taxes and who prefer to go to the beach every morning and get free food stamps from the dictator Obama who purchases their votes with the tax that is paid by only 50% of the hard working Americans. It is time to throw out of office the deceitful naked Emperor of America Obama who has no clothes even if he lies about it.

"Democrats champion the causes of the poor, the elderly, the sick, the disabled. Christ championed the causes of the poor, the elderly, the sick, the disabled."

But Christ wasn't doing it with other people's money. Christ championed the causes WITHOUT asking the Roman Emperor Caesar to foot the bill.
GREAT SOCIETY HA HA HA

It is facile to the point of absurdity to say that Christ was Marxist. Marxists want to use the police power of the state (read: men with guns) to take your property and do with it as they see fit.
Christ exhorted people toward generosity as a choice they might undertake all on their own.
So on the one hand you have armed gangsters calling themselves government and on the other you have a call to alms.

So what you're saying is that financially solvent christians are deliberately choosing to ignore their christ.

Very honest of you.

The Obama administration is unlawfully withholding public records about the spring break trip to Mexico funded by taxpayers last March for Malia Obama, according to a new lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch, the government watchdog organization based in Washington.

It’s not the first blackout the government has imposed on the trip, Judicial Watch noted.

Press reports of the trip for the then-13-year-old, a dozen friends and an estimated 25 Secret Service agents were erased from the Web on orders from the White House.

The new lawsuit claims not only are the records for the expenses of the trip required to be public, it is illegal for the administration to withhold them.

“Contrary to federal law, the Obama administration has simply ignored this basic [Freedom of Information Act] request. I have little doubt that this stonewall is because of the embarrassment of the security costs for the spring break trip of the Obamas’ daughter,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

The organization previously has ferreted out details, including estimated expenses, for other Obama vacations at taxpayer expense.

For example, the organization said it discovered a February 2012 weekend ski vacation to Aspen, Colo., for Michelle Obama and her two daughters included U.S. Secret Service costs of nearly $49,000.

And Judicial Watch said costs for the U.S. Air Force and the Secret Service for Michelle Obama’s August 2010 vacation to Spain were at least $467,000. Further, a trip by Michelle, her family and her staff to South Africa in 2011 cost another $424,000, excluding transportation, security and other costs.

The lawsuit against the U.S. Secret Service seeks to force compliance with the Freedom of Information Act.

Judicial Watch said it submitted a FOIA request to the Secret Service on March 29 by certified mail seeking,“Any and all records regarding, concerning, or related to the expenditure of U.S. government funds to provide security and/or any other services for Malia Obama and any companions during her March 2012 visit to Mexico.”

Although the Secret Service acknowledged receiving the letter and assigned it a file number, the administration has refused to respond.

“The Secret Service’s determination was due by May 4, 2012, at the latest. As of the date of this complaint, Defendant Secret Service has failed to … determine whether to comply with plaintiff’s requests [or] notify plaintiff of any such determination.”

It was on March 19 when “numerous online press outlets reported that the president’s 13-year-old daughter, Malia Obama, was on a spring break trip to Mexico accompanied by 25 U.S. Secret Service agents and as many as 12 of her friends.”

However, Judicial Watch explained,“shortly after the press reports surfaced, they were quickly removed from the Internet.”

“The trip reportedly took place shortly after the Texas Department of Public Safety issued a statement advising students on spring break ‘to avoid Mexico.’”

Politico reported at the time that the removal was on orders from the White House.

Kristina Schake, communications director for Michelle Obama, emailed to Politico:“From the beginning of the administration, the White House has asked news outlets not to report on or photograph the Obama children when they are not with their parents and there is no vital news interest. We have reminded outlets of this request in order to protect the privacy and security of these girls.”

The world's most valuable company paid $713 million in tax on foreign earnings of $36.8 billion in the fiscal year ended Sept. 29, according to the financial statement filed on Oct. 31. The foreign earnings were up 53 percent from fiscal 2011, when Apple earned $24 billion outside the U.S. and paid income tax of 2.5 percent on it.
