Maybe you can hold onto like the Obama birth certificate- another four years.

Funny how the gun gnutters only know half of an amendment that is scarcely two dozen words long.

No doubt why they have problems understanding what it means...

FOX NEWS TO SHUT DOWN FOR ROUTINE MAINTENANCE MONDAY MORNING AT 11:30

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—Fox News Channel announced today that it would shut down for what it called “routine maintenance” Monday morning at 11:30 E.T.

Fox News president Roger Ailes explained the timing of the shutdown, which will be the first in the history of the network:“We wanted to pick a time when we were positive nothing would be happening that our viewers would want to see.”

Mr. Ailes said that Fox had considered shutting down only once before, exactly four years earlier on January 20, 2009, and later regretted the decision to continue broadcasting that day:“It turned out that no Fox viewers wanted to watch TV that day. And I mean none.”

According to Mr. Ailes, for the twelve hours Fox News is off the air on Monday the network will broadcast a continuous photomontage of white people.

“Regular viewers of Fox probably won’t notice anything unusual,” he said.

After the routine maintenance is completed, Mr. Ailes said, Fox News will return to the air Tuesday morning with its regular broadcast schedule:“For Fox viewers, it will be like Monday never happened.”

You are right when you state that "Regular viewers of Fox probably won't notice anything unusual." A bunch of static when Fox is on the air, a bunch of static should it be off the air...what's the difference.

How did that 'look at numbers and do math' work out for you?
I wonder is that the type of math you do to make yourself feel good?
I didn't predict Romney winning. I knew the balance of voters was tilting to the liberal parasites, with the Socialist/Democrats recruiting illegals, criminals and the stupid lady with the "Obamaphone" in Cleveland. All you dickweeds need is for the percentage of people TAKING from the gubbermint dole to exceed 50% and you have it made. You can elect anybody that promises you more free stuff, and you'll sit there fat, dumb and happy in your Laz-Z-Boy recliner collecting your checks.

Then the well runs dry when the last Evil Rich Person gets tired of being punished for not sharing your lack of work ethic and leaves the country or moves his money off-shore. I've already done it-- good luck trying to find my assets, a$$hole.

That's the problem for you parasites. When all hell breaks loose and the money dries up, we'll be just fine. We were smart enough to earn it in the first place, we are smart enough to keep idiots like you from taking it.

But for now, enjoy! Lord Obama is going to STICK TO THE EVIL RICH! And he'll give you more free stuff!

When there are hundreds of thousands of voters where not a single voter, not one, pressed the wrong button by mistake, then nobody really believes the count. The places where programs were written to steal all the votes are child's play to identify. It is almost impossible to find the places where programs were written to steal one in three, or one in four votes.
Because it is an obvious fact votes were stolen, nobody believes the vote count presented. If the fact that nobody believes you has no impact upon you, then it is an unavoidable certainty you will start a civil war because you are not concerned about how the population feels, and it's obvious all you seek is power because you went to the trouble of rigging the vote to acquire that power.
Now, show us the text in the Constitution that gives the president the authority to issue any order/command/instruction/rest riction/etc. to any person or entity outside the Executive Branch of government.
Got a problem with that, don't you?
There is nothing in the Constitution that gives the president the authority to issue any instruction to anyone or anything outside the Executive Branch of government.
So, Obama's executive orders aren't worth the paper they're written on. According to the Constitution, the only orders or commands or restrictions or requirements any American citizen is obligated to obey comes to the population in the form of a law passed and enacted in accordance with what is written in the Constitution.
Obama is in direct violation of the Constitution.
I think Obama actually may not be aware of this because he's never even read the Constitution in his entire life.
But, ignorance is not a justifiable excuse. If Obama uses the office of president, ignorantly or not, to rebel against the government of the United States, then he is committing treason.
The Democrats cannot avoid this civil war they seek. They are too full of themselves and their ability to indoctrinate the population with lies to not do it, and they are too ignorant to avoid doing it.
When the smoke clears, the winners will most certainly hang the losers.
If, of course, you cannot produce proof, because all you have is sour grapes, the revolution can wait. The reality is the election was won fair and square, because one party was so stupid as to think they could write off 47% of the country. Apparently, no one told them an election is a popularity contest, plain and simple.

Keep whining, my friend.

Financing the government is never any president's invention. If you read the Constitution, you will see it is necessarily the responsibility of Congress. Specifically, the House is responsible for generating all bills related to revenue, which includes borrowing.
If either you or Obama had ever read the Constitution at least once in your lives both of you would know that.

Since you mentioned it, please tell us what happened to the deficit and debt since the Demcorats took control of all the purse strings of government in January, 2007, when they were given a declining deficit of 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollars and a total debt of 8.5 trillion dollars (having increased from 5 trillion dollars in January, 2001).
What happened to that deficit since the Democrats took control of it?

Perhaps you can disect this sentence and tell us what it means:

"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

I think you should first know what the definition of "is" is. Anyone who can't even difine the word "is" cannot possibly have an understanding of the English language sufficient to understand what the Second Amendment means.

I am convinced there will come a day soon when we will have to educate you on that.

Let's take a look at a quote from your bible:

"An organizer working in and for an open society is in an ideological dilemma to begin with, he does not have a fixed truth -- truth to him is relative and changing...."

Because you have not even looked into the matter, and the facts contradict the party line mantra you've been indoctrinated with, you are referred to Saul Alinsky for your response.

The fact is in more than 60 precincts studied, not one person pressed the wrong button by mistake.

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2012/11/12/od...

That is an impossibility.
Thus, the computer voting machines were programmed in those cases to steal all the votes. It is impossible to find the precincts that stole one in four, or one in five votes.
I can write a program that will steal votes like I desire then erase itself after the crime. Imagine what a real IT professional can do.

Obviously votes were stolen. It is child's play to find the places where the programmer was stupid enough to steal 100 percent of the votes. The only question is, what was the scale of voter theft.

It's obvious the numbers are not reflective of the actual vote.

It's also obvious the Democrats are attempting eliminate the constitutional government and institute a fascist dictatorship.

You are fooling yourself if you think this can be done without a civil war. When the smoke clears, the winners will most certainly hang the losers.

<quoted text>Maybe you should read the Constitution.

Lot's of confusion today. Here's a simple fact. The president does not have the authority to give any order to anyone or anything outside the Executive Branch of government, other that that specified authority to issue pardons. Period. End of statement. Anyone who ever has read the Constitution in their life would know this.
Obviously, Obama has never even read the Constitution. Please tell us why the University of Chicago thought it needed a person who never passed the bar, had never seen the inside of a court room as a lawyer, and had never even read the Constitution to teach Constitutional Law in their law school.
Inquiring minds want to know.

And, you still haven't answered these two simple questions:

Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security forces in Benghazi while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?

(examples of an answer: In the command center watching the video and issuing the appropriate orders; or, on the golf course like he was when he didn't have a clue the operation to kill bin Laden was even happening; etc., etc., etc. A location is required to answer the question.)

And;

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

(examples of an answer: Money will start growing on trees; or, all people regardless of income will have to pay more taxes to pay for Obama's government; or, there just isn't enough money in earnings to be taxed to pay for Obama's government and it is certain that the government will collapse under Obama; etc., etc., etc. A source of many has to be identified to answer the question.)

Tomorrow there will be an outdoor comedy routine by Obama when he pledges to uphold and preserve the Constitution. That will make anyone laugh. It would be today, but much more important events were already scheduled to occur. Well, it being Monday, not a lot of people interested in seeing it will have to take the day off from work....
Other than being recognized as 3/5 a person in the constitution, I have no problems with it.

You really could have saved this long winded soapbox rant. I've heard it before. It's been addressed.

Watching Obama today, sport?

LOL!

Are you a Rockefeller? Are you a member of any one of the Thirteen Families that control the worlds people? I don't seriously think so. So if you are not, your comments are foolish. If you think the "President" controls what is going on, You my friend are a victim of brain washing. The only reason you are comfortable with being ignorant is because the system has effectively done what it was designed to do which was to give you a false sense of superiority so you would do exactly what you do. Spread lies and keep them in there Ivory Towers. You are the worse kind of Slave.

Care to talk about today, dufus?

Please tell us about the time when your mother talked to you about not being recognized as a whole person. I'd ask about your father, but you haven't got a clue who he is.

I'm working today, like all patriots who pay all the bills in this country.

Here's a trivia question for you. Who said:
"Let's shoot four more and take the whole week off?"

I just happened to be living in that region of the country when it happened and heard it live.
Care to make a guess?

After you wrestle with that, let's get back to the questions you've been running away from like a scalded dog:

Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?
(just write a simple location to answer this question)

And;

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
(just write a source of money to answer this question)

Then, give us the answer to the trivia question.

Oh, yeah. I almost forgot to mention it. You know you'll be coming to see us. We know you'll be coming to see us. See you then.

You are obviously ignorant of the 2009 agreement Obama signed and Hillary personally delivered to China.

It would be embarrassing to me to be as ignorant as you. You really need to learn what's really happening in our government.

I'm thinking you really don't care. As long as Obama is taking from everyone you've been indoctrinated to hate your entire life to give to you, you don't really care what else happens.

The fact is, Obama signed an agreement with China giving them emminent domain priviledges as collateral for the money borrowed.
Obviously, this is a treaty agreement.
Obviously, this treaty was not ratified in accordance with the Constitution.
Obviously, the federal government cannot give part of any state to any other country.
Obvioulsy, to attempt to do so is treason.

So, we're right back to one of the questions:

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
(a source of money is required to answer this question)
