Barack Obama, our next President

Direction??? Obama's record of $5.8 trillion debt in 4 years? Makes Bush's $4.9 trillion in 8 years look thrifty.
Bah, spending doesn't reset to zero when the new guy takes office, Bush left Obama with budget deficits. Show me the massive increases in spending by Obama that equates to 5.8 trillion.

If Obama spent not one thin dime we'd still be at about 15 trillion in debt given the spending already in place and the collapse of the economy and subsequent loss of revenue under Bush.

Since Obama used two Bibles. I was very surprise that they didn't let him use his own faith Bible too. As for using another President's Bible. If his heart was in the right place, ok, but if it is slave issue down the white man's throat, and he is trying to make a point there by doing this, then it isn't right at all. Those days are over. God says do not dwell on the past. Blacks are free, they have for how many years now? Blacks have rights, and are treated very well. They have their black history month, MLK day, and still some hold hate or a grudge againist the white people of today. WE HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THEIR PEOPLE BEING SLAVES, YET THEY ARE MAKING US PAY FOR WHAT OTHERS DID. NOT RIGHT AT ALL!! I wonder how they would feel if the shoe was on the other foot, and we hated them, held grudges against them for something they had nothing to do with.
I was very surprise that they didn't let him use his own faith Bible too.This is so true!I was thinking that he would also use his Bible the Qur'an, Koran, Al-Coran, Coran, Kuran, and Al-Qur'an, witch is the central religious text of Islam, which Muslims believe to be the verbatim word of God (Arabic: &#1575;&#1604;&#16 04;&#1607;&#8206;, Allah)!!!!Since i understand that he is a Muslim!

Open your eyes to the live history's told foul, but I'm as wise as the old owl plus the golden child! Lyrics from 1 of raps greatest lyricist that lived Nas. Nobody's holding grudges against you personally, but your thoughts are as institutional on as a person doing life in prison! The blackman just doesn't live in masters plantation anymore, but you tell me, how are things better for the blackman now as opposed to then. We're the lowest % based nationality in America, yet we're the highest rated unemployed of Americas nationalities. That statistic alone doesn't make any sense. How can the lowest percentage of people be the highest unemployed people by far. The numbers are staggering! See Americas problem is we try to act like it never happened and when it's discussed in school they fabricate the truth and turn what's truly a horror story into a fairytale. So, no you didnt personally do anything to me, but don't sit in my face and tell me everything's all good. The oppressors of your race & nationality did'nt slaughter your ancestors & then lie about it in is disguised as school lessons to the living relatives of those that paid the ultimate sacrifice. They did it to the indians too. Almost to the brink of extinction!

It was conservatives who wanted to do business with Hitler
in one sense they are right, the Liberals in the classical sense were the Conservatives during Hitler's time where as of today the Modern Liberals are no where close of what it meant to be a Liberal in classical or true sense which all happend because of FDR for his redefining & promoting his version of what it meant to be a liberal which in the classical sense rejects FDR's policies and all big government involvement where as the Modern Liberals of today which are nothing but Bigots that believe in FDR's big government involvement which is considered the normal to todays modern liberals or the New Left what they became known as which want to expand and take this moderen Liberalism of theirs that it has become to be known as to a new level of Government involvement never seen before into the daily private lives here in US Society which is the problem and the Modern Liberals seem to think there is no end of Big Government control which is their goal to place every aspect of US Society under a microscope even more.

Your examples paid their 'slaves' room and board, money, whatever, but it freed up their time. Even though they didn't hold the literal power of life and death over them, the premise is the same.
<makes fist, extends middle finger>
"great "civilizations" have been exemplified by intelligentsia with time on their hands." So they could execute Socrates, extend their conquests to unsustainable territories (Britain) and visit vomitoriums?

"Even though they didn't hold the literal power of life and death over them, the premise is the same." That would be Steve Jobs, not Edison, Watt, Gates Or Buffet, and, unfortunately, check the Chinese suicide rate and the irreversible birth defects that have resulted over their "not" having literal power.(BTW, are you attempting to show me how effective your social finger is in pulling shit out of any of your orifices? No need; we all know you here.)

Collectively closing eyes and ears!! Heard a caller yelling on radio on how much President Obama has spent,
When asked how the President has spent money when Congress only can spend, the caller yelled some more.
The caller then insisted that the Presidents executive orders usurp Congress and are grounds for impeachment!

Hitler was a chameleon. Like bama, he portrayed himsef as a "moderate", but was nothing more than far leftwing fascist.
Look into the July 20 plot. It might be interesting to see who the people were that died trying to assasinate Hitler. It wasn't the left.
Myth: Hitler was a leftist.

Fact: Nearly all of Hitler's beliefs placed him on the far right.

Argument

To most people, Hitler's beliefs belong to the extreme far right. For example, most conservatives believe in patriotism and a strong military; carry these beliefs far enough, and you arrive at Hitler's warring nationalism. This association has long been something of an embarrassment to the far right. To deflect such criticism, conservatives have recently launched a counter-attack, claiming that Hitler was a socialist, and therefore belongs to the political left, not the right.

The primary basis for this claim is that Hitler was a National Socialist. The word "National" evokes the state, and the word "Socialist" openly identifies itself as such.

However, there is no academic controversy over the status of this term: it was a misnomer. Misnomers are quite common in the history of political labels. Examples include the German Democratic Republic (which was neither) and Vladimir Zhirinovsky's "Liberal Democrat" party (which was also neither). The true question is not whether Hitler called his party "socialist," but whether or not it actually was.

In fact, socialism has never been tried at the national level anywhere in the world. This may surprise some people -- after all, wasn't the Soviet Union socialist? The answer is no. Many nations and political parties have called themselves "socialist," but none have actually tried socialism. To understand why, we should revisit a few basic political terms.

Ford was also active in Nazi Germany's prewar preparations. In 1938, for instance, it opened a truck assembly plant in Berlin whose "real purpose," according to U.S. Army Intelligence, was producing "troop transport-type" vehicles for the Wehrmacht. That year Ford's chief executive received the Nazi German Eagle (first class)....

They even suggest/provide a link for books on Marxism:

Just because a business or company provides products like trucks/cars to another country "before" it is at war with the U.S. does not mean people with money supported the intent of what became the NAZI movement as we see it from a historical perspective.

Liberal here are trying to make that case and it is deceitful/proprganda, at best.

RealDave…. no one can match Pelosi/Democrats in Spending!! When Pelosi took office Jan. 4, 2007 the National Dept. was (8.6 trillion) at the close of business on Oct. 22, the Dept. stood at (13.67 trillion) an increase of approximately 5 trillion., the $3.22 trillion in new debt accumulated during the record-setting 111th Congress!!
