$15,981,094,000,000 and counting. A little over $18 billion till the $16 trillion mark. How;s it going to look having to beg to raise the debt limit right before the election? A baby born today is in debt for $50,863 before he/she takes he/she first breath.

Obama is not the president of the United States of America. He is the leader of the Untied Socialist Authority. Obama and his supports are only interested in destroying all Liberty and Freedom. Along with turning Americans in to obedient slaves to the state.

The Conservative Obama

Noah Millman observes that by most measures, Barack Obama is a conservative. Excerpt:

In the core areas of policy, the goal of the Obama Administration has been the preservation of the status quo, and where the Obama Administration has sought to move longstanding Democratic priorities, it has generally done so with an eye to minimally disturbing existing economic and political arrangements.

I think this is basically right, and this is why I have such a difficult time getting worked up about Obama. A conservative friend said to me the other day that if Obama was re-elected,“we might lose America.” He was totally serious. I don’t get this at all. I would much rather have Obama running US foreign policy than Mitt Romney. On the economy, with regard to the outsize power of the banks, Obama has been too Republican. I do worry about Obama and the Democrats’ unwillingness to rein in entitlement spending, and I have serious concerns about this administration’s understanding of religious liberty. Aside from that, though, I don’t see that there’s much of a meaningful distinction between Romney and Obama.

I look at the Romney campaign and see the third George W. Bush term, minus the possibility, however remote, that Paul Ryan’s budget views will guide actual Romney administration policy. What am I missing?

we suspect the "beautiful women" were purchased at CFX Composite Effects, a high-end prop store.

these 2 Obama supporters learned the hard way--that their purchases were traceable:

Lol,,Why, you having a popularity contest or something? Funny you find this an important issue when it comes to being able to defend Romneys policies. Very telling. Maybe that's because he really doesn't have any yet. He's keeping them a secret too.
The Facts
Every year, the president releases his tax returns, so there is little mystery about the extent of his contributions to charity.
In 2010, for instance, the president’s taxable income was a little over $1.7 million, much of it from book sales. Line 19 of his itemized deductions shows that he gave $245,075 in gifts to charity.
That would be a rate of more than 14 percent.
In 2009, the president’s taxable income was about $5.5 million. He listed $329,100 in charitable contributions on his tax return and also directed the Nobel Prize Committee to give his $1.4 million prize directly to 10 charities (which meant he could not take a tax deduction for donating the prize).
This adds up to a rate of 31.4 percent of taxable income, again easily surpassing Huckabee’s standard.(Update: a reader correctly notes the percentage would be 25.1 percent if you added Obama’s Nobel Prize money to his taxable income.)
So, what’s going on here? A Huckabee spokesman did not respond to a query, but the best we can determine is that Huckabee is referring to Obama’s long-ago tax returns.
When then-presidential candidate Obama released his tax returns during the 2008 campaign, it was revealed that he began making significant gifts to charity after he started making serious money from his books — and after he decided to run for president.
http://abcnews.go.com/Site/page/president-bar...
President Obama reported earning about $790,000 last year and paid $162,000 in total taxes. He and the first lady donated $172,000 to charity, or about 22 percent of their adjusted gross income, according to their tax returns. The majority of the first family’s donations went to the Fisher House Foundation which provides scholarships to veterans’ children.

theres both, and romney had extra tax benefits for running multiple LARGE businesses so he naturally pays less. So counter that one.

Food prices maybe 4% by years end, Electric rates stable, actually decreasing in some areas. Gasoline prices expected to hit $3.90 national average around late Oct and then start decreasing. I paid $3.49.9 yesterday.

Pig weed could be a huge problem for GA and AL going forward particularly with "show us your papers" in affect. Three to four million idle acres of farmland sucks eh?
