Obama's grandfather, Onyango, was beaten to a pulp and tortured by the British during the Mua Mua Uprising in Kenya. He suffered permanent physical impairments. That's all you need to know about Obama. Revenge against colonial powers puts it all in perspective. And we are his prime target along with Britain and Israel.

The 2012 military budget is 6-7 times larger than the $106 billions of the military budget of China, and is more than the next twenty largest military spenders combined.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm?

Seems to me we have enough ammunition with today's jobs numbers. First off, surprise, surprise, the unemployment rate fell! Now that''s all you will hear on the MSM, we are down to 8.1%. What you won't hear is the reason. Consider, only 95,000 jobs were created and last months number was..........wait for it..........revised DOWN. Yet we lowered the unemployment rate? HUH? The reason is that a whopping 368,000 people LEFT THE WORKFORCE, gave up, quit looking, went on government assistance of some sort or ARE just making do with less. The available workforce participation FELL to 58%, less and less capable and able and willing to work Americans are working. This is what we are supposed to give Obama 4 more years to....do what? Reduce the workforce to 40%? We are on an unsustainable path of more people on the dole than we have working. Just who is going to pay for all of this? We don't have enough people working and paying taxes now to reduce the debt, what's going to happen when even the number of tax paying workers is reduced. We need someone to stand up and shout YOUR FIRED!

Idiot! That's because the US has now, and has had since WWII, the largest military force around. That's how Europe, who depends on us to be the world's policeman, could cut their military costs and turn all of Europe into the Nanny State. They could afford it simply because the US did have the largest military budget and was capable of coming to the rescue to any European nation that needed help. Really, it is simply amazing how totally ignorant the progressives are. I can only suppose it is a by-product of the lame public school educational system where history and civics are not taught anymore. Revisionist history where George Washington is denigrated, Christopher Columbus is denigrated, all the honorable and hard working men who constitute our forefathers are denigrated and scum like "Che" Guevara are idolized.

Whoooooooaaaa!!!! DON'T GET DISTRACTED By the Media Bullsh*t.



This book isn't about the Obama Cuts to the Military. The BOMBSHELLS told by Bob Woodward are Much More Widespread.

Some of Obama's Critical Failure are more to do with his Economic Screw Ups and His DEBT CRISIS Decisions or Lack thereof.

For Instance, when Obama was confronted by the Debt Crisis, he basically hid under his desk. Democrats in Congress were shocked that this idiot couldn't come to a decision and rejected Boehner's overtures.

Another juicy tidbit was that even the dummy Joe Biden was quoted by Woodward as stating HE would have done it differently and gotten something done!







The media will try to discount this book by only highlighting certain issues and not critical ones. Be aware and dig into the Details. The media will NOT be doing that for you as they have in the past. That would place them in directly in the path to obama's election and they do not want to expose him in any way.

Dear Tiny Dumbass: You can hire about a million Chinese soldiers for the price of a daily cup of chicken-flavored rice, two dozen bullets and a camo-jacket w/ sneakers combo made by children in one of their sweat shops. They bring their own kacki pants and a rope belt to hold them up. The olive-green ball cap with the red star on it is optional.

Think about it a bit, then post an apology.

You're welcome.

It's also a bit more complicated than how you phrase this issue. Many in their 40's / 50's who have lost their jobs during the recession are considered either "over quaklified" (translation - not gonna pay you what you're truly worth), or after 50, considered unemployable - this is a harsh reality, but a very true one.

Also, employers don't wish to hire those who have been unemployed for 6 months or more. This creates a rift in employment for a large majority of those people who you stated have "given up". Tax incentives are being offered to employers who will hire those on unemployment, as well as those from the military, who have seen a decrease in their unemployment rolls by over 3%.

You need to do some serious remembering - this country never had a financial recession since Glass/Stegal was inplemented, so for over 50 years, we had relative stability in the banking sector. Deregulation began during Reagan's tenure, and if you've forgotten the Junk Bond Era of the 80's, you are one of many not truly remembering your past.

Supply Side / Trickle Down economics simply are a proven failure. Every notable economist have stated this. You want to go back to that?

The Bush Tax cuts, in conjunction with the two wars, are the major driving forces of all discretionary spending, and also the driving forces of our national debt.

President Obama says he is disappointed that only 96,000 new jobs were reported today and that 368,000 more people gave up looking for a job but he wants to remind everyone that he is for gay marriage.

Huge Week for what pass for Democrats these days.

First, Calif Teachers Unions illegal practice of Pension Spiking was shown to elevate already high Pensions by 20% more than earned.

Then, The Obama's anti business, anti growth policies led to an abysmal jobs number for August...a pitiful 96,000 new jobs created. July numbers were revised down by HALF and over 400,000 have so little confidence in obama that they QUIT looking for jobs.

Huge victorys for our 'enemies within" who are bringing our State and our Nation DOWN.

Another little tidbit about CA:

"A judge has ruled in favor of a group of California parents trying to take control of a low-performing public school, setting the stage for what could be the first such takeover under so-called parent-trigger legislation.

San Bernardino County Superior Court Judge Steve Malone on Friday ruled that the parents had collected enough signatures, and directed the school board to allow parents to "immediately begin the process" of conversion.

Carlos Mendoza, president of the Adelanto school board, said he would suggest the board appeal the judge's decision, made public Monday. "In my heart, I am not convinced that the majority of parents want to convert to a charter school," he said.

During the 2010-2011 year at Desert Trails, a mainly Latino, low-income school, two-thirds of students failed the state reading exam, 56% failed math and 80% failed science, according to the most recent data available.

Under California's parent-trigger law, passed in 2010, parents can force a district to close a school, convert it to a charter, or replace the principal and the teachers if at least 50% of parents sign a petition."

To date, the school board has declined to abide by the court order and have said they are willing to go to jail rather than abide by the court order. This is what the very powerful Teachers Union has brought to CA, they RULE totally and to cross them may well cost you a job.

One more reason to "Celebrate" unions, they do soooooo much good.

If a Sucker wasn't born every second the Democrats wouldn't have allowed the Obama and the Progressive Freak Fringe to take over their Party. Either they were Suckers or Sadists out to destroy rather than add value to America.

"For example, in 2000, a Bain-controlled firm, Modus Media, closed a plant in California and opened one in Mexico. The Romney camp, of course, has argued that jobs were moved overseas after Romney left the firm. The Obama campaign has argued that documents show Romney was still CEO and chairman, and should be held responsible for the company’s activities at the time.

But Politifact notes that the distinction is beside the point:

[t]he exact month that Romney stepped away from Bain makes little difference. When Modus Media closed that plant in California in 2000, it was making the kind of move Romney and Bain expected when they first got behind it. The particular decision was not known, but the general nature of the decision was, the experts we spoke with said.

Matthew Rice, Chief Investment Officer for DiMeo Schneider and Associates, a Chicago-based investment consulting firm, says he doesn’t see how Romney can divorce himself from the strategies that made Bain profitable."

-----Biden:'Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive'-----

-----Rating Obama's speech to the DNC-----

==========>>>>>

Who would watch and listen to the same old tired things of Biden and Obama, unless they are still crazy?

On and on again, to make matters off balance about robbing the public for welfare to GM, and having no security by showing fear of Muslims, while showing no pictures of talking about bin Laden, are very tiresome gambits of making defective work to demonstrate own awkwardness AND INAPPROPRIATENESS.

When one says about forward, everything needs to be supported with clear data and information to the GENERAL public, BUT NOT TO PROTOCOL to only one company GM, nor one segment or group of people Muslim --AND THAT IS WHAT FORWARD MEANS in nowadays' time versus THE OLD TIME or behind time when people didn't tend to tell you anything.

Despite few saw pictures of Obama speaking, what was told and heard was shockening--""" Obama said he din't get the job done."""--that is AUTOMATIC FIRING IN MODERN TIME TO TRANSCEND THE RIGHTEOUS PROCEDURE implementing FOR ALL.

Time is the fruit of value of making life work fine and creating jobs.

By spending four years (it is all about making time as useless time) with having nothing done, are you out of your mind by talking like that, and expecting crazy people getting so crazy again, as the disqualified soul man Obama spoke of himself by presenting a very negative saying from his speech--Have not done anything?

This is another con-scheme diversion to cover up the destruction he has done instead, from his anticipating people would think he did not do any job only, but would not focus to blame and jump on him from all the damages and devastating failures done by Obama.
