Meanwhile, sit back and enjoy the Obama 2016 conspiracy movie, but beware the free Kool-Aid. A poisoned mind and a poisoned body are two different matters.
The Obama movie has more truth then ALL of the Truther Movies!

In response to my assertion about the birthers’ elaborate conspiracy theory about Obama secretly working to bring the U.S. down, that it also somehow involves having another civil war and bringing NATO troops to our soil to fight, and that the same people keep circulating the myth that Obama has cut billions from Medicare to reduce benefits and bankrupt Medicare, you summarily dismissed it by saying that Obama isn't doing this secretly, that he told us from day ONE what he was going to do, and that people didn't listen,ignored it,didn't believe him or wanted it to happen.

When I asked you to share exactly what Obama communicated on “day ONE,” you responded curtly by trying to redirect me to other web sites to find answers, rather than you responding directly.

When I again asked you toshare exactly what Obama communicated on “day ONE,” you again responded curtly:“Check the link and hear what he was thinking! Read his books they are a window to his ideology!”

If you lack the interest or ability to back your claim, which your links do not actually support, so be it. However, please understand that I am not your online research assistant and don’t want to waste my time chasing down resources that you believe prove your case and disprove mine. It makes no sense.

It’s time to back your invalid assertions or retract them.

Listen to what he says, "spread the wealth around", "bankrupt the coal industry". Read his books, "white mans greed rules a world in need", look at the people in his cabinet/advisers, Garret, Rahm Emanuel, look at the people he surrounded himself in Chicago, ie Bill Ayes, Rev Wright, Father Pfleger, look at the people that mentored him, Frank Marshall Davis. The people you surround yourself with are the same people that THINK the same way you do. I won't do your homework for you. Look up any or all of these people. If you think they are great, then you vote for your guy Obama. But MOST Americans are sick of this guy's BS. Lie after lie, no this ISN'T the new normal. This is the first American president born in America but not raised American, there is a difference. He is doing more damage then good. If any body else would have had the same associates, they would NOT be President right now. NO ONE vetted this guy PERIOD! And now NO ONE wants to held responsible for his failure. So uninformed voters ,like you ,will vote for him again and you will use his race to demonize anyone that don't vote for him.

Report: 170 ACORN-affiliated groups still active

BY: CJ Ciaramella
August 28, 2012 5:00 am
Many of ACORN’s affiliates, allies, and old chapters remain active under different names—and at least two have received federal dollars—despite the left-wing community-organizing group’s official dissolution and ban on receiving federal funds, according to a new report.

Cause of Action, a nonprofit government watchdog group, recently identified 174 active or rebranded ACORN affiliates, as well as organizations that share former ACORN staff.

The groups shared the same physical location, leadership or staff, or tax ID number as old ACORN chapters, Cause of Action said.

At least two of the groups, Affordable Housing Centers of America (AHCOA) and Mutual Housing Association of New York (MHANY), have received federal dollars. According to MHANY, it receives funds from the Federal Home Loan Bank, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and Fannie Mae.

“It’s a serious concern because, as we stated in our letter to the IRS, it has been engaging in political activity,” Cause of Action executive director Dan Epstein told the Free Beacon.“We have concerns that these rebranded groups are using the same model that ACORN essentially trademarked: getting tax-exempt funds and using them for political purposes.”

Matthew Vadum, an investigator for the Capital Research Center who has tracked ACORN, called the revolving door of staff among old ACORN affiliates and their political activities “quite incestuous and corrupt.”

“They’re really straddling the line with what nonprofits are allowed to do,” Vadum said.

In some ways, Vadum said, the official collapse of ACORN was the best thing that could have happened to the organization. The former shell has now split into dozens of groups, making it much harder to track.

“For some of these groups, all they did was legally change their name. Nothing else changed. The corporate structure, leadership and staff are the same,” Karen Groen Olea, Cause of Action’s chief counsel, told the Washington Examiner.

Cause of Action has sent several letters to the Internal Revenue Service requesting an investigation into the groups’ activities to determine if they have violated guidelines for tax-exempt organizations.

MHANY Management, Inc. shares the same IRS identification number as the erstwhile New York ACORN Housing Company, Inc. The name changed between the group’s 2007 and 2008 tax filings.

MHANY partners with New York Communities for Change (NYCC), another renamed ACORN affiliate. HUD has approved it as a housing counselor.

The executive director of New York Communities for Change is former New York ACORN of&#64257;cial Jon Kest, brother of former ACORN national director Steve Kest. A 2011 Fox News report described NYCC employees shredding documents and removing any items related to ACORN after a previous report exposed the group’s ties to both ACORN and the Occupy Wall Street protests.

New York Communities for Change received funds from the New York Foundation, Mertz Gilmore Foundation, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Long Island Community Foundation, and the Edward W. Hazen Foundation.

The group has also received considerable funding from unions, including $500,000 from the United Federation of Teachers to campaign against charter schools.

I keep asking you to state your case. You keep responding by trying to send me on wild goose chases. You seem articulate enough to support your assertions about Obama with facts, rather than telling me to click links to other people’s sites and videos and to read other people’s words. None of them document facts in support of your assertions, only political spin that matches your own. They cannot support what they say with facts, nor can you obviously after several open opportunities to do so.

Here’s one last opportunity before I give up on expecting you to support what you say with hard facts.

I gave you info so you look it up for yourself. Don't take my word for it, look up the names,check their, and Obama's background, then make your own dicision. If you think he is the man, then go for it. I have read enough, seen enough, listened to enough of his words and speeches, checked the background, speeches and words of his close friends/cabinet members enought to know Obama ISN'T the man to lead this country for another 4 years! He hasn't led too much in the first 4 years! R&R2012 Restore and Recovery 2012

If Akin appears in North Carolina next week, neither party will be happy, but, it would get him elected.
Imagine, he will be in a place that believes in the sanctity of life, and he can explain himself.
