Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

i went into a bookstore yesterday and at the front door was a pile of O'Reilly's Jesus meme. the counter girl hit the floor laughing when i asked her if that was in the fiction section. she then said no, but she'd get right on it.
O'Reilly's "Killing Jesus" is an historic account of a man named Jesus, his life and death based on Roman history and ancient documents, and the political and economic environment of those times.

Did you ask the clerk if Killing Lincoln was also in the fiction section?

O'Reilly has taken all kinds of heat for writing about Jesus from an historic viewpoint and not a spiritual one.

But you libs get so confused so easily.

YALTA coming to America Modern Yalta is a reflection of its sketchy past: a mix of promise and failure, royal luxury and Soviet underachievement, marble and concrete, class and kitsch, exclusive five-star hotels and collapsed infrastructure. Cruise ships rarely dock at its port. Its service industry is populated by Russian speakers who have no clue about European standards.

In competition with Egypt, Turkey and Tunisia, which often provide better quality service for less, Yalta muddles through thanks mainly to loyal visitors, nostalgic for the past.

In 1991, Mikhail Gorbachev was detained in his Foros residence outside Yalta when reactionary communists in the Kremlin attempted a coup to turn back perestroika reforms. Shut up in his dacha, Gorbachev, together with millions of other Soviet citizens, watched Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake," broadcast on all TV channels in place of news from Moscow.

Why are Republicans afraid of co pay cards?
Obama was born in Kenya.
The "birth certificate" shown on the White House website is obviously fraudulent.
Obama was a college dropout at Occidental.
Obama never attended classes at Columbia.
Obama was admitted to Harvard because of high level connections with the Communist Party USA.
Someone who worked and made all the sacrifices to be admitted to Harvard was denied so some communist with connections high in the Communist Party USA could get another fraudulent line in their fraudulent resume.

Yes, we still blame the Democrats for the economic collapse caused by the failure of their Marxist CRA program.
This has been proven to you many times. Feel free to go back and read the proof, dumbass.
The Democrats caused the economic collapse.
The Democrats orchestrated the collapse for political purposes.
Since, the Democrats have doubled the debt, and the Democrats' version of government has to borrow 1.3 trillion dollars every year jsut for the day-to-day existence of the federal government, and they have absolutely no plan to rectify this.
An idiot can tell you this government will collapse.
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
lol! And yet, facts show otherwise on CRA.

Oh well. Cons can only hang on to lies even if it makes them look stupid!

so let's talk about subsides that the republicans love so much.
if it's good enough for Big Oil......
and what is it? up to $72,000 a year qualifies? that's a whole lot of subsidies to be stealing from the Oil companies.
Clearing up confusion about subsidies
Posted: January 20, 2011 by Ken Cohen
It’s a new year, and we have a new Congress – but unfortunately a lot of the same misinformation about energy taxes and subsidies is still circulating in public debate. Many journalists and pundits keep repeating the line that oil and gas companies receive more energy subsidies than other forms of energy, especially renewables. It’s an old line, and more importantly, it’s not true according to a range of U.S. government reports.

The importance of energy to our daily lives will continue to stimulate public debate about energy policies, and taxes and subsidies will continue to be hot topics. Therefore, it’s important we all have the facts to inform these debates. A number of U.S. government agencies and organizations have recently published studies on these issues, and they contain some very useful facts. The studies include:

Energy Tax Policy: Historical Perspectives on and Current Status of Energy Tax Expenditures by the Congressional Research Service (May 2010)
Estimates of Federal Tax Expenditures for Fiscal Years 2010-2014 by the Joint Committee on Taxation (December 2010)
Tax Expenditures for Energy Production and Conservation by the Joint Committee on Taxation (April 2009)
Federal Financial Interventions and Subsidies in Energy Markets 2007 by the Energy Information Administration (EIA)(April 2008)
Using Biofuel Tax Credits to Achieve Energy and Environmental Policy Goals by the Congressional Budget Office (July 2010)

These reports help demonstrate several key points:

Of the $16.6 billion spent on U.S. energy subsidies over the course of one year, fuels such as renewables, refined coal, nuclear, and others accounted for more than 85 percent of subsidies — while oil and natural gas received about 13 percent, according to the EIA study published in 2008. At the same time, oil and natural gas met well more than 60 percent of U.S. energy needs.
Many items claimed as “subsidies” for oil and gas are in fact tax provisions that apply to many organizations and industries across the board. For example, the New York Times editorial page claimed in July 2010 that the oil and gas industry’s biggest subsidy was the manufacturing income deduction under Section 199 of the tax code — without pointing out that the New York Times qualifies for exactly the same provision. In fact, disqualifying oil and gas activities from this standard provision would discriminate against our industry and our workers – it’s not removing a “subsidy.”
U.S. policy interventions, such as the continued taxpayer support of ethanol, come at a high direct cost. U.S. EIA data showed that while natural gas and petroleum received only $0.03 (yes, 3 cents) per million BTU, ethanol/biofuels received $5.72 per million BTU in energy subsidies. In 2009 alone, biofuels received $6 billion of federal subsidies via tax credits according to the Congressional Budget Office, and if existing policies continue, taxpayers’ support for corn-based ethanol biofuels will total more than $30 billion in the next five years.

Perhaps they need to recover the cost of insuring the hospitals that are forced to provide free medical care to people who refuse to work and 30 million illegal aliens here? They raise both your and the hospital's premiums to cover that loss.
Because the government is incompetent, there were no oversight and controls implemented, and this situation had no governing audits.
And, you clowns promote putting this same incompetent government in control of all health care to fix that problem.

So, you want to see people without proof of insurance or enough available credit on their credit cards to be locked out of hospitals & die in the street

If you like living in a third world country, move to one. Don't make this country one.

What makes you think all illegals are uninsured? Im thinking since many are working & paying taxes that some would at least be covered under their employers benefit package.

I see the bulk of the clown act is here now. Let's run this by them again:

In case anyone is wondering why the United States has exactly zero credibility in the world today, here is an example of a sequence of events that cause every country in the world to think the United States if fullofshit:

The Secretary of State of the United States tells the president of Russia there are no Al Qaeda soldiers in Syria.

The president of Russia addresses the population of the world and calls the Secretary of State of the United States a liar, using that exact word.

Then, this headline appears:
"Al-Qaida spokesman claims rival rebel group in Syria 'stealing' group's battlefield successes"

Obama is the laughing stock of the world. Thus, the United States is the laughing stock of the world. Nothing Obama says is believed by anyone in the world. Nothing anyone in this administration says is believed by anyone in the world.
Zimbabwe has more credibility in the world than the United States. Any country you can name has more credibility in the world than the United States.

All of you dupes that made this happen, give yourself an applause. You have accomplished something that has never happened before in the history of civilization. You have reduced the credibility of the leading nation in the world from top to the very bottom in just one 4-year term of a president. This has never happened in the history of civilization before you Democrats made it happen here.

No, Lily. I have no patience with willful ignorance due to dogged blind loyalty. I want a leader who is decisive without waffling and has convictions other than stroking his own ego and reaches across the aisle to unite us all instead of thinking fellow Americans are his enemy.
But you were anti-American when Bush was president. So you have no room to talk.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard's 2011 Killing Lincoln and 2012 Killing Kennedy have been on coast-to-coast bestseller lists, often simultaneously. Now the emphatically opinionated O'Reilly Factor star and history specialist Dugard combine their talents to recreate arguably the most fateful killing of all time: the crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth. For nearly two thousand years, that history-changing event has been discussed and debated. Now its story is retold in telling detail. Certain to be a bestseller.
