President Obama used his State of the Union address Tuesday night to press for more government spending, challenge Republicans over Medicare and declare that victims of gun violence “deserve a vote” on a sweeping gun control package.

In what was effectively the kick-off address of his second term, Obama largely pressed on with the policies of his first, while adding a roster of wish-list items – including a call to increase the federal minimum wage to $9 an hour, up from $7.25, and pass immigration reform.

They need some more money for their pensions and pay raises. They are smart to take care of themselves and others. Politics is a self serving profession.

Marco Rubio’s speech did not send a thrill up Chris Matthew’s leg
Obama lays groundwork to bypass Congress in second term
Republicans in key 2016 states praise Rubio response
Michael Barone: Obama's gangster government operates above the law

Going into his second term, President Obama is facing a dilemma. On the one hand, he still wants to pursue an ambitious liberal legislative agenda. On the other hand, he knows that as long as Republicans have control of the House and 45 seats in the Senate, he won’t be able to enact it. In his State of the Union address on Tuesday night, he responded by laying the groundwork to bypass Congress in his second term.

To be sure, Obama did outline an ambitious legislative agenda. He called for comprehensive immigration reform, gun control and a $9 minimum wage. He proposed universal pre-school, more infrastructure spending and backed a bill that would encourage mortgage refinancing. He also described a centralized industrial policy for manufacturing and energy. He couched all of this in bipartisan sounding rhetoric about “reasonable compromise” and putting “the nation’s interests before party.” But on multiple occasions, these proposals were accompanied by vows to take executive action."

Morning Examiner: America is over Barack Obama

Morning Examiner: America is over Barack Obama

President Obama may be in the White House for another four years, but it appears a smaller and smaller number of Americans seem to care. Tuesday night, in what was billed as possibly the most important speech of his second term, Obama detailed and ambitiously liberal second term agenda and dared Republican to oppose him. Problem is, few Americans watched.

According to Nielsen ratings, just 33 million people tuned into to see Obama’s State of the Union this week. That is 4 million fewer viewers than tuned in last year and the lowest number of Obama’s entire presidency. In fact, fewer Americans watched Obama’s speech Tuesday night than any State of the Union since President Clinton’s swan song in 2000.

The only real winner Tuesday night was CNN who helped turn their mammoth pre-SOTU Chris Dorner audience into a 36 percent jump in total viewers over last year’s SOTU. Did the Dorner lead in inflate Obama’s speech totals as more American’s stayed on to watch the State of the Union, or did CNN simply steal eyeballs from the broadcast networks who all saw steep ratings declines?

The impact of a $9 minimum wage
By Tami Luhby @CNNMoney February 13, 2013: 9:57 AM ET

NEW YORK (CNNMoney)
After promising five years ago to raise the federal minimum wage, President Obama finally unveiled a plan to do so on Tuesday.

In his State of the Union address, Obama pressed to raise the hourly rate in stages to $9 an hour in 2015, up from the current $7.25, and index it to inflation. The change, should it become law, would boost the wages of 15 million Americans, according to the White House.

"Tonight, let's declare that in the wealthiest nation on Earth, no one who works full-time should have to live in poverty,'' he said.'"This single step would raise the incomes of millions of working families ... For businesses across the country, it would mean customers with more money in their pockets."

Gregory Kane: The doctor will school you now, Mr. Obama

When Baltimore neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson handed President Obama his head on a platter at the recent National Prayer Breakfast, I can't say that I was surprised. I've been an admirer of Carson since 1998. I was a columnist for the Baltimore Sun then, covering a story about how the principal at a local high school suspended, en masse, most of the student body.

This sent the "our children are really sweet little dears" bunch into a frenzy. They didn't blame the students -- who refused to return to class after a fire drill -- for the suspensions. They blamed the principal.

Baltimore officials decided that the high school needed some kind of intervention. So they organized a rally to urge more parents to get involved with their children's educations. Former Baltimore Mayor Kurt Schmoke -- who went on to become dean of Howard University School of Law -- spoke at the rally, as did former Baltimore State's Attorney Patricia Jessamy.

With the president sitting only a few feet from him, Carson criticized Obamacare. Then he let the president know how wrong his policy of overly taxing the rich is.

To bolster his point, Carson went straight to the Bible.(This might have been lost on Obama, who probably spent way too much time at the Rev. Jeremiah Wright's Chicago church.)

"What we need to do is come up with something that's simple," Carson said. "God has given us a system. He didn't say,'If your crops fail, don't give me a tithe.' He didn't say,'If you get a bumper crop, give me a triple tithe.' So there must be something inherently fair about proportionality.

"You make $10 billion, you put in a billion. You make $10; you put in one dollar. But some people say,'That's not fair because it doesn't hurt the guy who made $10 billion as much as the guy who made $10.' But where does it say that you have to hurt the guy? He just put a billion dollars in the pot. We don't need to hurt him."

Indeed we don't. But you can bet Carson's message was lost on the leader of America's class warfare party.

I wonder if they can mint just a single coin with a officially declared literal value of several trillion US dollars.
in the USA they could legally... mint trillion dollar platinum coins.... or smaller denomination coins...

the question in the end is if you would accept these coins in exchange for the goods and services you provide...

we do it everyday with our own currencies back by nothing but the government that issues it

most of us, would accept US dollars no questioned asked... even though we know if push came to shove the USA would not be able to back those dollars..or those coins if they decided to issue them...
