Cut some benefits, salaries and pensions. These lazy slobs earn too damn much and game the system at the cost of the tax payers.

Those who write the taxes should never have their own unions.

City council members should not be paid and congresspeople/assembly should be part time. Police and fire should get the lion's share of benefits as they do risk their lives.
SomeOf Them Are Useless

Obama had 4 years to change the country for the better.

Seriously, can anyone name one good thing this guy's done for America?

I need not explain how he and his corrupt guttertrash Chicago mafia handlers have made everything worse. Simply look around with your own lying eyes for proof.

In some aspects Obama is right when he says ((("you didn't build/create that, government did.")))

Let's look at what this administration has created in 4 short years:

-Socialist eugenics based health care (((Obamacare)))

-NDAA (((National Defense Authorization Act))) where Americans can be disappeared without a jury

-Out of control (((Crony Capitalism)))-government picks winners and losers based on payouts -not free market eg. Solyndra, GM, GE, MF Global, Numerous Bank Bailouts, Cancelling Keystone Pipleline, No Prosecution of criminal Banksters

-(((Skyrocketing Unemployment and Outsourcing)))-The idea that welfare checks/EBT cards are paychecks

-(((Fast and Furious))) and other suspected domestic false flags like Aurora CO to argue for abolishing the 2nd ammendmant

-Massive (((TSA expansion))) onto America's streets and armed (((survellance drones/now blimps))) operating over US territory.

-(((UN control of U.S. military troops to invade))) Egypt, Syria, parts of Africa, etc. for offshore bankers aka Nazism

-(((Trickle Down Government))) The idea that nothing can be built without (((more government bureaucrats and global warming regulations/taxes))) getting in the way

-(((Throwing Israel -an important ally- under the bus))) by destabalizing all the county's around it but not offering them any assurances of protection

-A(((continuation of Bush's failed policies))), like not getting out of Iraq, Afghanastan, and no closing of Guantanamo torture camps

-(((Polaraized race relations))) eg. Disrespectful hadling of the Treyvon Martin family after his murder -opportunistic my son would have looked like Treyvon soundbite- and media staged racial infighting between Americans

-(((No Proof Obama supposedly got Osama)))) America was never really allowed to see the body/proof ; -)

-(((Defunding of NASA))) No exploration of the stars for the U.S., leave that to countries that are exceptional

-(((No Plan/ or Budget to Fix Anything if he is re-elected )))-always says what you want to hear, then does the exact opposite hoping you''ll forget by the next speech -(((Sociopathic Liar)))

-(((Obamaphone)))-Massive expansion of this program for his dependant voting base

-(((Unlimited QE3 leading to hyperinflation/ monopoly money))) Dollar is rapidly losing purchasing power resulting in skyrocketing food and GAS PRICES (especially for "green gas" in CA)

-(((Needed a tainted Creepy Crawley moderator to hold his hand during the 2nd debate))) weak affirmative action President

- My favorite (((Legalizing the illegals))) temporarily until the election is over but not offering true immigration reform

Obama's 2nd Term

(((BenghaziGate))) Obama lied, our troops died -bigger than Watergate, this is outright treason -funny how Obama threw Clinton under the bus

(((IRS Gate))) Uses IRS storm troopers to go after political enemies by targeting foes for audits and leaking classified tax information -both felonies

(((Mediagate-Boston CIA Gate))) Trying to chill journalists by tapping their phone conversations -even spying on Associated Press and other old liberal allies

(((NSA/PRISM Spy Gate))) Persecuting whistleblowers like Snowden and now bumping off journalists who expose illegal phone/net wiretapping on public

(((Holdergate))) Is Holder is supposed to supervise all these hearings? He should be in jail over Oklahoma city, Fast and Furious, and Wall Street corruption. Laws without enforcement are useless.

What the hell does it take to get impeached or is Obama now a bonafide dictator?

Really you can handle that!? I DON'T THINK SO.

You seem traumatized by someone eating a HOT DOG as some kind of fussy crisis.

Oh... Yeah... Mr tough guy of discipline.
.......... You know what mr tough discipline guy!?

I DID SELF DISCIPLINE TOO.... Also at around age 17 I purposefully walked BAREFOOT 4 kilometers on a trail in the WOODS which half of the trail was PEBBLES not soft pebbles not the round pebbles but ones that can be POIINTY... There are sticks... There are twigs... There are rocks... This area even has RATTLE SNAKES... COPPER HEAD SNAKES...

ONLY THROUGH SELF DISCIPLINE DID I EVER walk 4 kilometers BAREFOOT on a trail in the woods.

..... Can you handle that!?

........ You know how tough BUB!?

...... I have beat NUMEROUS people in arm wrestling WITH MY PINKEE FINGER ONLY.

I sometimes felt like my pinkee vs their hand would BREAK but I still won PINKEE VS THEIR ARM,

Granted smaller people... But... I said that first one time as a joke to smallefr people to arm wrestling to have them arm wrestle my pinkee so they might have a chance.... I did that & I WON... I was like OMG I CAN BEAT PEPOPLE ARM WRESTLING WITH MY PINKEE.

That takes discipline, guts, strength, BALLS.

....... I don't think you could handle it MR Hotdogs hurt your feelings.

........ I have probably been punched in the head 100's of times in fist fights NEVER ONCE KNOCKED OUT.

That takes strenght MOFO.

.... You know how it is when you are just walking home & you have a group JUMP YOU FROM BEHIND HITTING YOU.

....... You know how it is at age 12 when someone who is SUPPOSED to be your best friend PUTS A GUN TO YOUR HEAD!?

You know how it is when I would show my SUPPOSED best friend a COOL ANIMAL I LIKED.

.......... I don't think you should be taking about discipline if HOT DOGS hurt your feelings.

....... Oh while you have hot dogs as a central issue of your world.


How dare they react because it hurts your little ITTY BITTY FUSSY FEELINGS that someone might like to eat hot dogs.

...... New York Hardcore Mofo.

I would say I am battle hardened & I never even went to war.

.... I have been figthing, since I could remember.

Fighting the West Europeans, Fighting the Blacks, fighting the Hispanics, Fighting the Hispanics.

Fighting off the feral sociopaths.

Fighting those who jump you just walking down the street/

....... I am New York battle hardened MOTHER FO

It is like I have been a veteran of a war without even going overseas.

.......... While there are people out here who have had REAL PROBLEMS.

There are real issues out there for the world.

.... So let me go let you handle your litttle HOT DOG fussy crisis problem.

When FDR adamently REFUSED to Union Public Employees he said that Politicians who recieve Union support could NEVER be trusted to "negotiate" fair Contracts in the general Publics best interests.

Public Employees were never meant to be able to ENSLAVE the Public to way above average Pensions and Benefits just because they BOUGHT dishonorable political Hacks.

In the most pathetic "Blue States", large cities like Los Angeles and Chicago have far greater Pension problems than Detroit.

Tell em they are doing a fine job in the public sector living off our taxes and that they deserve everything they get.

Especially when their pensions get taken by the globalists like in Detroit.
