GUN CONTROL: Second Amendment Doesn’t Give Americans The “Right to bear Arms” It Prohibits the Government from ‘Disarming The People’.
Actually the 2nd Amendment does give us the right to bear arms, and in no uncertain terms. The Supreme Court has made that clear.

3 GOP governors say they won't work with feds on 'ObamaCare'

The governors' rejections mean that the federal government will run exchanges in New Jersey, Florida and Tennessee.

Remember this ?
Obama's jobs record looks like --– USATODAY.com
www.usatoday.com/money/economy/story/2011-11 -...
Nov 3, 2011 – On the eve of Friday's October jobs report, President Obama has presided over the loss of 1.6 million private sector jobs. EnlargeClose ..
more..........
"Obama has presided over a loss of 1.6 million of the nation's 111 million private-company jobs since taking office, according to official statistics. "
http://www.cnn.com/2012/10/03/politics/fact-c...

The facts:

In 2009, Obama's first full year in office, people in states across the country were losing their jobs at a startling clip. In Ohio, the unemployment rate was 10.6%.

But over the next few years, the nation saw slow increases in employment in the retail, education and health care sectors. Today, most states are gaining jobs. The key swing state of Ohio now has a 7.2% unemployment rate.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics confirms that a lot of jobs have been created under Obama's leadership -- 4.4 million by the bureau's latest count. What Obama did not say, however, was that the nation shed 4.3 million jobs during the early days of his term, and that the net gain since he took the oath of office in January 2009 is just 125,000 jobs.(cont.)
..........

He's restored lost jobs under his first term in office and is in the positive column. We've got a long way to go, but he should be credited for what has been accomplished to date. Your post is disingenuous and WRONG.

Try fact checking your BS sometime.

The progressive left, that's who.
Redistribution of wealth, government controlled health care, and the constant indoctrination that the government is our lord and savior for all things "fair" are facts.
Not that you care, but your president was an active participant of the Chicago New Party and the Chicago DSA, a group of socialists affiliated with the Democratic Socialists of America.
*Barack Obama attended and participated in meetings of the Chicago New Party and the Chicago DSA, the local affiliate of the Democratic Socialists of America.
*Barack Obama sought the endorsement of the Chicago DSA which required rigorous scrutiny by the party’s Political Committee as well as Mr. Obama’s signature on a contract promising “a visible and active relationship with the NP.”
*Barack Obama actively used the endorsement from the Chicago DSA.
*Barack Obama won his DSA-endorsed and -backed campaign to secure his seat in the Illinois State Senate.
*Barack Obama continued his involvement with the Chicago DSA — including directly asking the group to join “his task forces on Voter Education and Voter Registration”— and received their endorsements in subsequent campaigns.

But you go right ahead doing what you do best - deny and name-call.
Try to focus. Wealth has already been redistributed - to the TOP of the income spectrum at the expense of a middle class in America.

Try. Close your eyes and try to meditate on the d*mned reality of that statement. The GREATEST POLARITY in WEALTH in The United States of America since The Great Depression.

It's difficult to try and be patient with you mental midgets. You really do test everybody here who has a brain. To date, whatever brain power might have existed on the right has apparently left the building. You are disintegrating, stuck on stupid and relegated to supporting your points of view from fringe sites. Hate the MSM all you like, but at least we have fact checking organizations like Factcheck.org . that anybody can use.

Ignore that if you like, but teachers and firefighters are considered "essential services" by most rational human beings.
Did I say they weren't? Does the federal government pay the salaries of the vast majority of teachers, fire fighters, and police officers?

$85 billion "cut" from a budget of $3.6 trillion. That’s 2.4%. As of August household income was down 8.2% under Obama and the country had to make do.

Now Obama tries to tell us that government can’t do with 2.4% less? This 2.4%(half of this from defense) would mean:

*Furloughs of 800,000 civilian Pentagon employees;

*Meat inspector furloughs from which food shortages will result;

*Air Traffic Controller furloughs resulting in three-hour waits at airports to clear security;

*Reductions in embassy protection and border patrols;

*Cutting the Persian Gulf Naval presence from two aircraft carriers to one;

*Diminished emergency services;
fewer police and firefighters on the streets;

*Reduced military readiness;

*Criminals going free because federal prosecutors will have to close cases;

*Thousands of teacher and educator layoffs

*Tens of thousands of parents will have to scramble to find child care for their kids;

*Hundreds of thousands of Americans will lose access to primary care and preventive care like flu vaccinations and cancer screenings; and

*Job-creating investments in education and energy and medical research.

You people believe this crap? Seriously? Then you'll believe anything.

Maybe some of the smarter democrats could start by informing the low-info democrats that "furlough" does not mean "fired".

A short-tempered history of the 'curmudgeon'

An older grouchy word is crab, which comes not from the crustacean but the sour crab apple, which in turn may come from Swedish dialect word skrabba, "fruit of the wild apple-tree," according to the Oxford English Dictionary (OED). Crab came to refer to a sour person in the 1570s.

18 Charts Showing The Rise Of Government Dependence

Mitt Romney's comment about 47 percent of Americans living on government handouts may not have been tactful, but he certainly has a point.

Americans are more dependent on the government than ever.

Romney's "47 percent" refers approximately to the population who pay no federal income tax. Add to this the share of the country who receive government handouts in one form or another and that number would be higher still.

A furlough means go home without pay and come back sometime later.
A furlough will force tens of thousands of employee with decades of training and experience to take those skills elsewhere. When the furlough ends, the knowledgeable staff will no longer exist. We will have to recruit and train new employees costing at least three times what we saved with the furloughs.

Maybe some of the smarter republicans could start by informing the low-info republicans that actions have consequences.

John C. Drew, an Occidental College graduate who knew Obama personally in the early 1980s, reports that the young Obama of that period was “already an ardent socialist Marxist revolutionary”; was highly “passionate” about “Marxist theory”; embraced an “uncompromising, Marxist socialist ideology”; harbored a “sincere commitment to Marxist revolutionary thought”; and was, in the final analysis, a “pure Marxist socialist” who “sincerely believed a Marxist socialist revolution was coming to turn everything around and to create a new, fairer and more just world.”

Nation making progress under Obama

Technology is why, as Obama also pointed out, Caterpillar, Ford, Intel and Apple are opening plants in the United States, rather than in China, Mexico and other lower-wage countries.
