'Halftime in America' ad creates political debate

Feb 6, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Bellingham Herald

But Chrysler's "Halftime in America" ad featuring quintessential tough guy Clint Eastwood has generated fierce debate about whether it accurately portrays the country's most economically distressed city or amounts to a campaign ad for President Barack Obama and the auto bailouts.

Being Obama doesn't give you the right to do whatever he wants. He's a communist. Try explaining that to God.

If you want to look at when we lost many of our rights, just look to the Bush Administration. All the Presidential Decrees, the torture and the, so called, Patriot Act, which by the way should be called the Un-patriot Act. Of course, I would expect comments like yours from a red neck, neo nazi, or a one percenter who thinks that everyone owes them everything.

Since you brought up Communism that is the Goal of the Union, a classless society where everybody & everything is be treated equal. Walter P. Reuther was pro Stalin but a committed Socialist too, Walter & his brothers went over to Russia and worked in the Auto Factory in Russia during the Great Depression and wrote back how great Stalin's Social Experiment was working for the Russian people, until he called for a strike and seen how Stalin handled that which is when Walter Ruether decided to return back to the US and that is when Walter found out that Stalin was not promoting a society based on Communism but in sense a Plutocracy which lacks of political freedom & Democracy and is the Ideal condition for Capitalism to take hold. Besides that Academics & union officals traveled to Russia to visit Stalin & Trosky which would change their lives & help set the course of FDR's New Deal Social Programs.

And don't forget forget that one of the major bank rollers of the right wing fascists in America (funding among others the John Birch Society, CATO institute, Heritage Foundation, Tea Party Express,) started with Old Man Koch and Joe Stalin. The Kochs have used the fortune their old man built on Soviet oil refineries in their attempt to buy American democracy!

The mandate on Americans to be covered for contraception let alone to purchase medical coverage should be clear enough that what we have is a dictatorship.
.
Then to pervert the words of Christ to try to prop up his position is the utmost in hypocrisy and also shows just how far Ceasar Obamus will go to force this dictatorship on us.
.
Michigan folks want to bitch and moan about Snyder "taking over" cities in Michigan when they don't even have a venue to hold talks on how the city should proceed??? These appears to be the exact same folks cheering on hope and change circa 2008.
.
Well have at it ya pieces of shyte. Change is HERE!

You only prove yourself a complete fcuktard, not knowing where I am even from. You might consider I moved away from your northern loser states because there was no jobs there and I didn't do the NOBLE thing and turn to crime, but instead moved to where the jobs were.
.
Notice your northern states lost a shitTon of electoral votes this past census, you need to pay attention to who is popular in the south, because that's who's gonna be President.
.
That's right, I'm a former NORTHERN electoral vote, whose CAPS LOCK isn't broken.

Nixon tried to take over North Viet/Cambodia and those field workers grilled the Marines and Army soldiers by the thousand-they believe in their way of life until death-

Man creates God in his own image-religous wars are bogus

Western religous themes were copied from India and China hundreds of years earlier

"The press is the enemy. The establishment is the enemy. The professors are the enemy," Nixon told Kissinger in a recorded Oval Office conversation on Dec. 14, 1972.

One document in particular may reveal the beginnings of Nixon's so-called "enemies list." In a handwritten note on June 23, 1971, Nixon's top aide, H.R. Haldeman, documents Nixon's order to pressure former Secretary of Defense Clark Clifford using the IRS. Clifford was a vocal critic of Nixon's Vietnam policy.

Haldeman also references action to be taken against another Nixon enemy, "TK," whom many believe to be Senator Ted Kennedy.

"Get him -- compromising situation ... Get evidence -- use another Dem as front," Haldeman writes of "TK."

from the Nixon Tapes a Washington Post Investigation

Nixon was one of the most racist, anti-semitic, anti-social media Presidents in modern times-a sick man

I use the term God in general sense-Buddhism is the closest thing to a humanitarian non-prejudice teaching IMO

Nixon Was at war too here in the US with the unions & organized labor too. I Still believe the purpose of his trip to china was to open the doors for furture relations & a cheap labor market to compete against the US workers and then Nixon & congress in 1969 created OPIC(Overseas Private Investment Corporation) which was established in 1969 and began operations in 1971 as a development agency to promote and assist U.S. business investment in developing nations. Today, OPIC is a U.S. government agency that provides project financing, investment insurance, and other services for U.S. businesses in over 150 developing nations and emerging economies. To date, OPIC has funded, guaranteed, or insured over $180 billion in investments. This agency has done really nothing but as being the engine of exporting US jobs overseas to countries like China starting the early 1970's by the Federal Government taking out the risk out of investing in forgien Countries. I believe Obama had it right when he tried to shutdown OPIC, but recieved obstruction from the Republicans. OPIC-supported projects must not have negative economic effects on U.S. employment and industry and must fulfill other statutory requirements which I believe it has and its been overlooked by the politicans for years.

Our love-hate relationship with China

http://money.cnn.com/2012/02/13/news/economy/...

Our second largest trading partner

Second only to Canada, China is America's next largest trading partner, and the relationship has always been more give, than take. Since communist China opened up its economy in the 1980s, the U.S. has always imported more Chinese goods that it exports to the country.

That imbalance obviously has its pros and cons. As China gained jobs and started to industrialize, America's manufacturing sector struggled to compete with cheaper wages abroad. Robert Scott, a trade and manufacturing expert at the Economic Policy Institute, estimates the U.S. trade deficit with China cost America 2.8 million jobs between 2001 and 2010 alone.
