Barack Obama Shows How Low He Can Go

Barack Obama Shows How Low He Can Go
SCREENSHOT
This 2011 ad attacked Republicans.

With his three wins earlier this month in Wisconsin, Maryland and Washington, D.C., Mitt Romney all but clinched the Republican nomination for President. The political pundits promptly announced that the 2012 campaign for the White House could finally get under way.

Baloney. Barack Obama has been campaigning for re-election for more than a year now (or, more accurately, about five minutes after he took office in January 2009). Judging by what we’ve seen so far, it’s going to be one of the nastiest campaigns this country has ever seen.

Four years ago, when he was campaigning on a promise of “hope and change,” here’s what then-Senator Obama said in his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention:

If you don’t have any fresh ideas, then you use stale tactics to scare voters. If you don’t have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from.

Sound like anyone we know?

Karl Rove wrote an opinion piece for The Wall Street Journal in which he mentioned recent remarks Obama made to executives of The Associated Press (an audience that was guaranteed to be almost as friendly for him as union members). The President warned that the Republicans want to “convert more of our investments in education and research and health care into tax cuts — especially for the wealthy.” Of course, no Republican anywhere has proposed any such thing — and the President knows it.

But you’ve got to love how the guy manages to position his redistributionist schemes as “investments.” How can you complain if he takes money from those who earn and give it to those who don’t (with substantial deductions along the way to pay for the bureaucracy that administers it) if he calls such actions “investments”?

Our President is an absolute master at impugning the motives of anyone who disagrees with him. Thus, he can tell the editors at AP that his opponents want to “let businesses pollute more and treat workers and consumers with impunity.” He knew that no one in his audience would challenge such ridiculous assertions.

Or how about this example? Unlike the Democratic-controlled Senate, which hasn’t passed a budget in the past three years, the House of Representatives approved one earlier this year. It calls for increased Federal spending from $3.6 trillion in fiscal year 2011 to $4.9 trillion in fiscal year 2022.

But in his speech before the AP, Obama denounced the plan for its heartless “cuts” because he wants to increase Federal spending nearly twice that much. His plan calls for spending $5.8 trillion in 2022. So in other words, in Obamaland, if one of your kids asks you to double his allowance, and you increase it only 50 percent, somehow you’re guilty of cutting it.

Of course, if Mitt Romney or any other Republican tried to use such shoddy logic, the media would be quick to point out the absurdity of the claim.

Speaking of dishonest statements, how about Obama’s promise that if Congress would only pass the “Buffett Rule,” it would “stabilize our debt and deficits for the next decade”? Obama isn’t even close. According to the Joint Committee on Taxation, this much-ballyhooed tax on anyone making $1 million or more a year will raise $47 billion over the next 10 years. Obama’s budget proposals for the same period will add $9.6 trillion to our national debt in the same period.

In other words, the Buffett Rule will pay for just about 17 days of the President’s next decade of deficits. But, hey, the public likes promises to “soak the rich.” And no President since Lyndon Baines Johnson has played the “us vs. them” card as often or as effectively as Obama.

As you know, the Buffett Rule is named after Warren Buffett, the billionaire investor from Omaha, Neb., who earned scads of publicity when he observed that he pays a lower tax rate than his secretary.

Well, guess what? It turns out that Obama does, too. The President and his wife reported an adjusted gross income of $789,674 in 2011 and paid 20.5 percent of it in Federal taxes. The White House confirmed that Obama’s secretary, Anita Decker Breckenridge, paid a “slightly higher” percentage on her salary of $95,000.

According to White House spokeswoman Amy Brundage, that “is exactly why we need to reform our tax code and ask the wealthiest to pay their fair share.”

By the way, in 2009 and 2010, royalties from his bestselling books put Obama in the $1-million-a-year income bracket. But in 2011, the President wouldn’t have been subject to the Buffett Rule had it been in effect. I guess he’ll have to wait until he’s out of office and making millions of dollars on the lecture circuit before he falls victim to the proposal — assuming it ever gets passed, that is.

Meanwhile, the President and his cronies are raising hundreds of millions of dollars for this year’s re-election campaign. Bill Maher, the potty-mouthed comedian on HBO, contributed $1 million to a pro-Obama super-PAC earlier this year.

I shudder to think how ubiquitous the nasty ads from the Obama campaign will be with a billion bucks to spend, but I doubt they will stoop to the depths of some of their more vitriolic supporters, such as Maher. At least, I hope they won’t.

If you think the 2011 TV ad was featuring a wheelchair-bound old lady being thrown off a cliff was nasty, just wait. You ain’t seen nothing yet.

Until next time, keep some powder dry — and the political commercials on mute.

    What we have here is a POLTUS – President of Lies To the United States. Obummer is the most proficient professional lier that has existed since Hitler, Stalin, Lenin & Marx. Should this not be evident to the common person, level of wealth be damned? Unfortunately, no. So many of us see directly through his well planned, well funded “con-game” yet the truth remains shadowed in his mesmerizing ability of speeches. Such speeches, with an ever present mesmerizing effect, provides open examples of the truth such as the lines upon lines of sheeple that eagerly seek out their heavenly gift from the messiah, “Obummer Money”. Without question such fools will never see that his profound intent is to nefariously destroy not only our Constitution but our country on a whole. With such ease, he has been taking aide from an entourage of progressive communists, Islamic radicals (Muslim Brotherhood), corporate fascists (Immelt), economic terrorists (Soros) and the subtle yet close relationship with an Anarchist (Ayers). A rancher by chance who holds a large herd of COWS that is being so easily cared for and directed by his various teams of cowboys (Van Jones – Trumka – Stern). Having been molded by not only his parents, grandparents and a shadowy communist figure by the name of Frank Marshal Davis, such a wonderful mentor of years past, it seems totally illogical, insane to an extent, that a man of such erroneous background should have weaseled his way into the oval office. Yet since it has happened we both have and shall continue to suffer that of which he wrote “The Dreams From My Father”. Is this not the year that We the People shall perhaps draw our last breath of Constitutional Freedom? That shall be finally decided in November. Lord, I pray that the eyes and minds of the many shall open and defeat the twisted minds of the few.

        Ditto Hooper, Bro Sirian always does a good job! But I will add that I don’t believe that he would’ve gotten elected in the first place if it wasn’t for some intentional, mis or non, information by our MSM!!! That is treasonous! We can not exist as a free society without a free and HONEST press!!!

        CISPA Another Fascist Takeover of the Internet

        “CISPA, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, is picking up sponsors and it looks like the legislation will make it to the House floor for a vote next week. CISPA emerged from the House Intelligence Committee with an overwhelming vote of 17-1.”

      • recce1

        FreedomFighter, have you ever really fought for this country? It you had you’d know that those of us who did have eaten things not on you everyday American menu, things it was best not to ask your host about.

        As an adult, I’ve eaten moose, caribou, lamb. deer, horse, grasshoppers, ants, bear, water buffalo, snake, snails, shark, eels, frogs, sea cucumber, rotten eggs, birds nests, Rocky Mountain oysters, fermented cabbage, and yes, dog. And I’ve been grateful to have the food. So why do you go after a child who while living in a foreign country ate what his foreign step-father did?

        It’s a puerile attack. It’s like the Montana’s governor’s mealy mouthed attack on Romney because Romney’s grandfather lived in a Mormon community where some, but not his grandfather or father, practiced polygamy almost a hundred years ago. Of course we shouldn’t mention that Mr. Obama’s own father practiced polygamy according to his religion. However, that’s not the fault of Mr. Obama in any way.

        By the way, Mr. (intentional) Obama isn’t a communist, he’s a Fabian socialist, something far more dangerous to the Republic. For his disdain of the Constitution he should be impeached.

        However, please don’t use Semper Fi if you haven’t eaten strange things overseas as almost any true Marine has or use Laus Deo if you’re going to bear false witness.

      • George W. Bush

        I can not stop laughing. I have never read so much BS in all my life. The GOP just made mister flip flop the King of the “well who the hell can tell if he’s lying he changes so much” their Presidential hopeful. And to compare Obama to Hilter, come on. By far the GOP has used and practiced more Nazi propaganda techniques than the left ever has. Lets face it, just like the Nazi’s they have their own “Ministry of Propaganda”. Hell, just listen to FOX news and Chip Wood. Jeffersons statement about a honest press is right on, shame the people who feel that way don’t see the deception carried out but their own “Free Press”. Like the little rich nerdy guy dating the hot cheer leader, completely infatuated and can’t see what is right in front of him. Shes in the car with the football team, her panties and bra hanging on the antenna. She tells him, “oh they are just drying, spilled a little water on them. Would you be a darling an go get me a burger.” He happily accepts that answer and run off to do as she wants. Interestingly enough the people of the right are not much different. The Shepards of the right, blogs like this and FOX news, pump out BS and half baked news, tell the sheep what Patriots they are, and off they go happily regurgitating the flawed information.

        FYI! You know how you really make gas prices drop? Get big oil out of the pockets of wealth right wing politicians like Barton, Bohner, O’Connelly and others, open the America oil field up for bid. The company that bids the lowest price per barrel is the winner. Also, open the market up to outside sources to come in and compete directly. Lastly, we all pay for the freeways, but we do not pay evenly. Come up with a tax, toll, what ever, based on weight and distance travelled and do an “Engineering” correlation to damage it does to the roads. I can assure you, gas consumption will drop as people will pay their fair share. People will be more concerned about the weight of their vehicles which will improve fleet milage, reducing demand, and lower fuel price. Right wing BS about the bill lowering the price of fuel is just that political BS. It will only benefit those who are putting dollars in right wing politicians pockets.

        DONT BE AN AMERICAN SELL OUT, VOTE ANYTHING OTHER THAN RIGHT! PROVIDED BY A PATRIOTIC AMERICAN COMBATING RIGHT WING SHEEP HERDING!

      Like Chip Wood, you, Sirian, have spent too much time sucking at the Faux Noose gaspipe. Why don’t you come up for some air?

        Dead asleep at the wheel there, alex. Anyone with half a brain knows what obummer is up to…wait, I guess that leaves you out, if you had another brain cell, it would be lonely.
        Maybe you should stop drinking the kool-aid and come up for air…

      • DocVenture

        Alex, it’s precisely people like you who reject out of hand any possibility that Obummer is every bit as evil, conniving and manipulative as Sirian and Chip have stated. Only an idiot with his head buried in the sand cannot see that he has chipped away at the Constitution and the bedrock of American belief. Of course, I’m getting the sense that you don’t contribute any tax money (or likely anything else) to pay your way, so really…you have no skin in the game, and everything to gain by Obama’s handouts. Bravo, you are the 99% (of idiots that are hell bent on destroying this nation)!

        Alex;
        If you have some factual evidence that either Chip or Sirian are wrong, or even if you just have a well thought out counter opinion, please enlighten us! Other wise this is just another, in a very long line, Alinsky rant!
        Most, serious Conservatives have also read the Progressives playbooks! I don’t view the Progressive movement as simple opponents, people with the same goals but different ideas of how to achieve them, like the Liberals were. The Progressives are total enemies, people with vastly different goals, to our Republic, and a wise soldier always seeks to know his enemy!

    • Ellen

      I find it interesting that people keep saying Obama’s tactics are like LBJ’s. LBJ was a disgusting, vile, amoral man. He would do anything to attack his opponents and buy votes. His great achievement – welfare – was touted as a way to help blacks out of poverty. In truth, LBJ used it to gain the black vote and it was an ingenious plan, as blacks have been voting Democrat ever since. But, in reality, it has destroyed the black society and decimated the black family. Instead of realizing this, blacks are brainwashed into thinking Republicans are evil and only want to take away their welfare. How can they t see reality? Their own people keep them ignorant.: Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Maxine Waters, etc, have made their living by exploiting their own.

        LBJ was the worst president of all time. He had at least 8 people murdered, including his own sister Josefa during his quest for power. He then conspired with the CIA to assassinate JFK, promising the best damn war you’ve ever seen. When a congressional inquiry was about to be launched, LBJ and gay boy J Edgar Hoover got together and appointed the Warren Commission, all of them Johnson appointees who would write the story the way he told them to. Normal Secret Service protocol calls for all windows along a presidential motorcade to be closed, however numerous windows were photographed wide open at the Texas School Book Depository.

        • Deerinwater

          so? what are you running for ? Dog catcher?

      • Meteorlady

        Deer – in order to garner any respect from me you would have to have EARNED the money you need to survive. Earning money is one of the most ethical means of garnering respect. It is the most unselfish thing you can do. Earning money honestly through hard work is honorable. Exchanging that noney with others that have worked hard and produced something is even more honorable.

        I worked hard, paid my way through college, worked menial jobs to save in order to start a business. I’m here only to find that everyone has their hand in my pocket and have climbed onto my back. Some days I wonder why I even produce or innovate when I pay about 53% (city, county, state and federal taxes, plus the cost of regulations and reporting) to various government entities just to exist as a business.

        Then add in my personal taxes, property, income, employee payroll taxes, and other fees and crap and I’m lucky to keep even 40% of what I earn.

        • Deerinwater

          You say “YOU” meaning anyone and everyone I’m left to assume. Or I’m left to take it “personal” . The last dollar that I didn’t earn if memory serves, wasn’t a dollar but a huge half a dollar silver coin my father gave me when I was 9. But there is little served in telling you about my 64 years of being the grandson of sharecroppers Meteorlady.

          In as far as your statement “Then add in my personal taxes, property, income, employee payroll taxes, and other fees and crap and I’m lucky to keep even 40% of what I earn.”

          That’s pretty typical and what we “All” are experiencing so don’t feel like the ‘Lone Ranger”

          These days, I confess, I do touch more money then I have in my whole life! But that is only as one might hope it would be. After 41 years of doing the same thing year in and year out, I’m at the top of my game. I create wealth for myself and others. i have so much going on and some many irons in the fire, it cost me money to do this. But people don’t light my fires and work for me for free, my book keeper, my attorney, house keeper, yard man, and small staff of office help and field techs don’t work hard for me just because they like me.

          They come to work from the reward of hard work and to take care of their business by helping me take care of mine.

          But you seem to have a 5% edge on me, I work on something like a 34, 35% margin if I’m luck and everything goes well.

          However, I’m not asking for anyone respect, respect is not for the asking. You command respect or you don’t. It’s not complicated. I don’t like it when people require me to be “firm” with them. But when I “ask” for something, it’s not a request.

      Sirian, kudos to ya!

      Are you aware that the Media Research Center(MRC)is launching a new anti-liberal media campaign, “Don’t Believe the Liberal Media!”, for the upcomming DNC convention in Charlotte this summer?

      While Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Barack Obama are hobnobbing with Chris Matthews, Diane Sawyer and Brian Williams in Charlotte for the Democratic National Convention wouldn’t it be nice if they got a little reminder of how real Americans feel about their socialist schemes?

      The plan calls for billboards, taxi-tops, boots on the ground promoting their “Don’t Believe the Liberal Media!” message everywhere that they can for those four days in Charlotte .

        Sorry I didn’t respond quicker, been tied up at the V.A. today – the usual. Oh yes, I know about MRC’s plans and upcoming actions for the DNC. OUTSTANDING!!! I get their newsletter and alerts too. HA, wouldn’t it be a hoot if the taxi-top campaign was running in NYC. . . LOL!!! There must be thousands of taxis in NYC. Just imagine how the networks, the Times and best of all, Bloomberg would react. If there was enough money available this should be a nation-wide campaign, with heavy concentrations in L.A., San Francisco, San Diego, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Detroit, Madison, Washington D.C., Boston, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Miami, Atlanta, New Orleans, Dallas/Ft.Worth, Houston, Phoenix, Denver, Kansas City, St.Louis, Memphis, Birmingham and good old Nashville. Yep, that should cover most bases. . . :)

    • PHAH KING

      Obama the worst liar? This is a joke right? Bush and his buddies should all be in jail for treason! Talk about lies! We went to WAR based on their lies! Please! Money? Republicans like Romney are bought and owned.THEY care not about the constitution just big corps.

      • Meteorlady

        That’s it? Bush again….. gads find something useful to contribute.

      • DaveH

        Most of them are liars, PHAH. So what? Does the quantity of liars somehow make lying moral?

      • recce1

        How is going to war treason, even if it’s due to misrepresentations or lies? Do you even know the constitutional definition of treason? Now if you said Bush should have been impeached for what he did, then I’d see your point.

        By the way, Mr. Obama committed an impeachable offense by going to war with Libya without even consulting Congress. Also he’s taken foreign donations which is impeachable. Then there’s the issue of his claiming he has the right to order the detention and execution of American citizens without due process. I could go on as to why Mr. Obama should be impeached.

        Sure, big money backs Romney. But he’s not the only who has been bought and owned; have you heard of George Soros? In addition, Mr. Obama has nothing but disdain for the Constitution despite his having been a “professor” of constitutional law.

        As for the worst liar, how about Pres. Clinton?

      A Long Read, But Worth Your Time:

      In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh ,
      had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior:

      “A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent
      form of government.
      A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can
      vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury.
      From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the
      most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally
      collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship.”

      “The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has
      been about 200 years.
      During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

      From bondage to spiritual faith;
      From spiritual faith to great courage;
      From courage to liberty;
      From liberty to abundance;
      From abundance to complacency;
      From complacency to apathy;
      From apathy to dependence;
      From dependence back into bondage.”
      The Obituary follows:

      Born 1776, Died 2012
      It doesn’t hurt to read this several times.

      Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul , Minnesota ,
      points out some interesting facts concerning the last Presidential election:

      Number of States won by: Obama: 19 McCain: 29
      Square miles of land won by: Obama: 580,000 McCain: 2,427,000
      Population of counties won by: Obama: 127 million McCain: 143 million
      Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Obama: 13.2 McCain: 2.1

      Professor Olson adds: “In aggregate, the map of the territory McCain won was
      mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country.

      Obama territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low income
      tenements and living off various forms of government welfare…”

      Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the
      “complacency and apathy” phase of Professor Tyler’s definition of democracy,
      with some forty percent of the nation’s population already having reached
      the “governmental dependency” phase.

      If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal
      invaders called illegal’s – and they vote – then we can say goodbye to the
      USA in fewer than five years.

      If you are in favor of this, then by all means, delete this message.

      If you are not, then pass this along to help everyone realize just how much is at
      stake, knowing that apathy is the greatest danger to our freedom..

      This is truly scary!
      Of course we are not a democracy, we are a Constitutional Republic .
      Someone should point this out to Obama.
      Of course we know he and too many others pay little attention to The Constitution.
      There couldn’t be more at stake than on Nov 6, 2012.

      If you are as concerned as I am please pass this along.

      All you all do is distort the truth about the POTUS when all the time we all get it the right is tricking lame people into believing their lies you all came up with the phrase about grandma now that it has become a noose around your neck you want to pass it on to the left but we aren’tgoing to sit by and take it anymore so lookout with your schemes here we come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • recce1

          It would mean voting out both Republicans and Democrats. That’s why I favor term limits.

          However, would you, like Mr. Obama, want a socialist welfare nanny ONE-PARTY state?

      • Meteorlady

        You can have term limits or you can vote them out, but along comes the next hand picked candidate to fill the spot.

        WE NEED CAMPAIGN finance laws so that only individual VOTERS can support a candidate. No money to the national parties, just to the individual candidates……no more super PACS, no more corporate donations, no more lobbyists, no more special interests….

      • DaveH

        Meteorlady,
        Campaign finance laws just cut down on the amount of information that people can get about new candidates, thus making it harder to unseat the incumbents. We just need to educate the voters so they can make wiser decisions. Our first place to start should be to push educational choice at the local levels.

  • dan

    GOP solution ….select a canidate just a bit to the right of boss O to pull the lunatic left vote….alienate the tea-party …and ignore and marginalize Ron Paul with the aid of the mainsteam media who want Obama to win anyway….

        Not so with you, Deer. Like most Liberals you prefer the Liberal manipulative personal attacks over any kind of logical debate. And like most Liberals, you can whine about the Big Bad Business people’s transgressions, but then turn around without batting an eye to advocate forcibly taking other peoples’ money to be spent how you please, and forcibly making other peoples’ choices in a manner that makes the most ruthless business people look like saints.

      Flashy. Sounds like all smoke and mirrors is your game.You fit right in witn obumbler. The problem is the smoke in your brain/eyes, allows you to ignore the fact that Poison obumbler is not about America, but about his destruction of our Country. If you would step away from the mirror, and focus on what obumbler is doing, perhpas you could see the truth.

      • DaveH

        Flashman know the truth. He just doesn’t speak it. He’s just a Big Government shill here to harass good people who are seeking the truth about our lost Freedom.

        As an aside…

        I will give you plaudits. I have read lately posts where people are saying they’ll vote for Romney because he’s the candidate and they have no choice. I honestly and truly believe you will stand by your convictions and not vote for romeny because he is the only canddiate..and you will hold true to your values 9however distorted they are ;)..and vote Ron Paul.

        I honeslty applaud you for that. And I honestly believe you have that stance. You will send a message and i do hope Paul garners 8-10% of the vote and that WILL shake things up in DC as Obama enters his second term.

        As much as i realize it galls you to think I have some respect for you…in that i do.

      • DaveH

        I rarely vote for Republicans, and never for Democrats. But, if I had been alive 150 years ago, I probably would have voted mostly for Democrats. That was before they became subverted by the Progressives.

      • Wyatt

        Flashy the Flasher is so full of himself he doesn’t know which end is up . Swift Bost Campaign ? What was so terrible about that campaign Fashboy ? The lies being told were told by Kerry . His wounds may have well been self inflicted , he was told by one of the boat crew not to fire the grenade launcher as the range was much to close and he was struck ( and scratched ) by shrapnel from his own round . To then add insult to injurey , he then put himself in for his own Purple Heart . This should have been told sooner than it was . Somehow it slipped through and he got one , basicly for shooting himself and for a wound that was merely a scratch ( no stich’s required ) Its all it the book , Fast Boat . Flashman should read it sometime . Might help him smell what he shovels in here .

        Kerry’s claims were and are an insult to every Vet who served in Viet Nam . He chose to lie about his service thinking he would get elected because of his service . Fortunately the Vet’s who served with him saw a higher alligence to their country than to a former service member . His lie is small potato’s compared to Obama’s long list and will pale in comparason to those that will be strewn about in this election .

        God Help Us All !

      Good one Flashy. Nice attempt to dilute the anti-Obama vote. For a vote for any third party canidate, is vote away from an Obama alternative. Which means a vote for Obama.

      I’d vote for a three legged dog with a mangie tail, over Obama if he had a better chance of winning. So I know those that have their country’s best interest at heart, will vote for the one that can win. Not some immature wish list canidate, when there is so much on the line.

    • Meteorlady

      So correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t Obama’s campaing smear two of his opponents with sex scandals during his state senate run? They dropped out to save embarrassment to their families but it was later found that none of the accusations were true.

      Didn’t that just happen with Herman Cain? Where are the facts in that case. Those women were found, paid for and floated back into non-exitence once they did their thing and got Cain out of the race.

  • vietnamvet1971

      Vet , if I remember my history lessons correctly , That’s when Rome fell . When the Emperor decided that the Senate was no longer needed.

        FF;I never ate dog but it is totally acceptable to do so in other countries and is considered a food staple.What’s the big deal.I thought eating escargot was pretty gross sounding until I tried it one time and it was fine.Obama was a ten year old boy at the time so it actually sounds as if you are attacking a child for what he ate.Grow up already and be a man.

        • recce1

          I must agree with you. We can’t judge Mr. Obama for eating dog as a child nor can we judge him by other cultures he’s lived in. My father was Army and as a child I lived in Germany. As an adult I was in the USAF and lived in many different countries including Japan, Thailand, Korea, and Greece and ate many different things, some I didn’t want to ask about. I’ve had deer (Bambi), turtle, shark, snails, buffalo, horse, moose, caribou, grasshoppers, ants, rotted cabbage, bird’s nest, rotten eggs, sea urchin, eels, bunny rabbits, snake, and of course dog.

          Nevertheless, Mr. Obama brought this type criticism upon himself when he unleashed his campaign attack dogs to howl at the moon. He’s also gotten others to question Romney’s religious beliefs because his grandfather was born in a Mormon community were some others accepted polygamy, to claim that Romney was part of the KKK and rejected science, and that his wife never worked.

          If a leaders allows such vilification of his opponents, and it’s likely to become much worse, why are his supporters crying foul about a fact, even though the fact isn’t really relevant.

          By the way, Mr. Obama’s father was a Muslim, socialist, and bigamist.

          • Deerinwater

            Was it Obama that offered up this criticism or was it “pundits” or are they both viewed as one and the same?

      • recce1

        Deerinwater, as I wrote, “Mr. Obama brought this type criticism upon himself when he unleashed his campaign attack dogs to howl at the moon. He’s also gotten others to….” I also wrote, “If a leader allows such vilification of his opponents…” I didn’t say that Mr. Obama “offered up this criticism.,” There’s a big difference, is it not?

        Mr. Obama and his handlers are masters of political deception. Those doing the attacks are hardly doing so without the knowledge, tacit assent, or even direct authority of the DNC, the White House, David Axelrod, Rahm Emmanuel, or Mr. Obama.

        Considering the latter three are from the Chicago Mayor Daley Mob school of politics I’m not surprised at their tactics. Are you aware that hadn’t it been for Axelrod and his dishonest and perhaps illegal tactics Mr. Obama might still be an IL state senator? So its all of 7 of 9′s fault that Mr. Obama is president. Darn those Borg!

    • DaveH

      What are you a Doc of, Doc? Hallucination? Obama is in the 1%. You would know that if you did any of the suggested reading:
      http://mises.org/daily/5776/The-State-is-the-1-Percent

      • Doc Sarvis

        I have read this article and while anyone can make an argument that, since we are all unique individuals you can sort us all out into groups of 1 percenters (or less). I would also agree that the President of the United States (all Presidents) will fall in the 1% described in the article as living off of us the citizens of the country. THAT position and circumstance of President IS provided for under our Constitution.

      • DaveH

        No it’s not, Doc. Read the Constitution. Read the Federalist Papers. The Federal Government was strictly limited in size until slick lawyers like Alexander Hamilton began chipping away at it with double-speak and other methods. Prior to Lincoln’s trampling of the Constitution, the Federal Government was mostly kept out of the Marketplace, and for obvious reasons to those who understand the natural inclination of Leaders to work hand-in-hand with their Crony Capitalists to feather each other’s nests.
        Read this book by Thomas Dilorenzo, an economist historian, to better understand how our country evolved from Freedom to tyranny by the Politicians and their Crony Capitalists:

        People like doc, galt and flashy really don’t deserve replies. These communist despise America and all we stand for. It is their interest to destroy the country that has given them an incredible opportunity to succeed, but that opportunity was not enough.
        The anger and ignorance in the black community is a disease that only they can cure, but the more our government gives, the more they expect, and so we give more and more and they do less and less.
        How do you deal with a people that defend every immoral position they create?
        Crime, ( it’s because the white man made me do it ) our prisons are 70% black, creating a massive financial burden to our tax payers.
        Unwanted children, (it’s because we get free money for every baby, and the white man made me do it ) 70% of black children are born out of wedlock.
        Do you think the 70% fatherless children and the 70% in prison are related?
        High school dropout rate, ( it’s because school is not cool, why do I need school when the government will take care of me, and the white man made me do it) 50% of blacks drop out of high school.
        Do you think the lack of education contributes to their ignorance, apathy, child bearing, crime rate and political views?
        You would think that in 2012, with all of the opportunity and trillions wasted on these people that as a people they would be grateful for our generosity and have succeed by now like every other culture that has come from nothing and built themselves to be something positive in our society.
        I guess as long as there are people like doc, galt and flashy that promotes idiots like the good Rev Al, Van Jones, Louis Farrakhan, Obama and all the immoral, lying, scamming, hateful, anti-American, anti-God, vermin like themselves, into role models for their ignorant clan, things will never change, and will continue to worsen.

        The true Black man’s burden is themselves.

        If you ignore the docs of the world, they will go away.

        If we continue to ignore the above facts, our country will fail.

        “The true Black man’s burden is themselves.

        If you ignore the docs of the world, they will go away.”

        I would think the same could be said for all men, regardless of color. Then to, the use of the word “true” needs development. Can there exist an untrue black man?

        And I’m in question with your use the word “docs” , is that short for documents or doctors or something completely different?

      • Deerinwater

        Oh! I got it! You fail to capitalize a pronoun , never mind.

    • Ted Crawford

      One thing is certain here Doc. That is the fact that, untill he wrote(?) his books, Obama, like his Mother before him never made a dime that didnt come from the Public Treasury! Obama has never , before his Presidency, held any job, anywhere! In addition Obama has never ran, nor even been a junior member of a management team, a private business. His sole experience with the Public Treasury was to see how much money he could extract from it! As we can see by his economic policy so far, he learned that very, very well!

      • Doc Sarvis

        Your criteria for certainty is very low while your capacity for twisting reality is very high.

        President Obama worked in academia, had summer jobs (one at a gift shop in Hawaii after his first year of college; another making sandwiches at a deli counter, and a third with a company that processed health records of police or firefighters. In addition, during one school year Obama worked as a telemarketer selling New York Times subscriptions over the phone. He was a community organizer in Chicago, he was a Senator in Illinois, and a U.S. Senator.

      • http://www.mototcarsfinancial.com Brad

        Wow Doc with a resume like that I can see how he qualified to become the leader of the free world. You my friend and Oblammer are the best examples of how even a blind squirrel can find a nut!

      • Ted Crawford

        Well shucks Doc, I once steamed sweaters at a sweater factory, by your criterion I’m qualified to lead the wonderful NWO you Progressives are so desirous of!

      • http://gravatar.com/hattles JeffH

        Doc, you are aware that Obama never has had any leadership roles in the real world? A Marxist commuity organizer is not a leader…a community organizer is a sh*t disturber.

        Also, be aware that Obama’s “birther” attorney has now stated the Obama’s certificate of live birth, posted on the WH website, was a fake. Imagine that?

        Last but not least…more Obama Marxist community organizer reality for you.

        “Obama learned his lesson well. I am proud to see that my father’s model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday.” –Letter from L. DAVID ALINSKY, son of Neo-Marxist Saul Alinsky

        “Obama helped fund ‘Alinsky Academy’: “The Woods Fund, a nonprofit on which Obama served as paid director from 1999 to December 2002, provided startup funding and later capital to the Midwest Academy…. Obama sat on the Woods Fund board alongside William Ayers, founder of the Weather Underground domestic terrorist organization…. ‘Midwest describes itself as ‘one of the nation’s oldest and best-known schools for community organizations, citizen organizations and individuals committed to progressive social change.’… Midwest teaches Alinsky tactics of community organizing.”

Why did they get a house loan for a house they could ill afford from Rizo? Community organizer? Is that like when I go to Habitat and help build houses for free? Is that like when I mentor at rist children in my community so they can make it to college? What is that jobs exactly other than advising people how to get more handouts from us working tax payers…?

        Why did Michelle get over double the salary she was making in a local hospital (six figures) when her husband became a senator? Why did they not replace Michelle when she left their employment? Maybe she was there because she could get favorable things for them?

        Well, certainly Ted, you need only to acquire a degree and set yourself apart from other sweater steamers with the capacity to learn and excel.

    • Shane

      Such sour grapes Doc Sarvis. It must be depressing to live in your skin. Where ignorance and slough, leaves low expectations and lack of wealth for losers like you.

      Wealth is not the issue. But how you live it, and treat others.

      You Doc Sarvis exhabits the classic example of those that hate other’s success. Using your statements, the Obama children whom are now part of the elite 1%, can’t run for office. Nor should they under your reasoning, be able to use their influence to push public policy.

      Losers, losers, losers. Those that are jealous of others and what they have.

      Pitful!!

      Romney graduated Harvard with two degrees which is very difficult. A Law degree and a simultaneous MBA from Harvard Business School.

      Romney graduated in 1971 [from Brigham Young] with a 3.97 grade-point average.

      In 1975, he graduated from Harvard Law ‘cum laude’ and from Harvard Business School, where he was named a Baker Scholar and was in the top 5 percent of his class.

      Unlike Obama he is able to speak to any sized crowd without a teleprompter and does quite well.

      So where are Obama’s records?

      • Deerinwater

        Well , I’m certainly looking forward to seeing them go toe to toe Meteorlady. It’s good that you hold such confidence in Romney.

        • recce1

          Deerinwater, by the way, Romney can even verify his academic credentials, grades, and papers. I know, I’m being snide but I couldn’t help it.

          Obama is perhaps the better debater but I think Romney will hold his own. I just hope they, or perhaps I should say moderators of any debates, stick to pertinent issues about their visions for a future America.

  • Flashy

    How can anyone profess to love America as the Right does, yet espouse daily a hate for Americans? You guys honestly believe you are patriots who want nothing but good for this country? And yet…you support a the promise of a campaign by the GOP and the Right which will make Swiftboaters and their lies of ’04 look like kindergartners?

    • cawmun cents

      On a personal level I like you Flashman,it is your position on issues and conditions I take umbrage with.
      I like that you stand for what you believe in.
      But I dont like what you believe in.
      Some folks find it necessary to impose their beliefs on others,and when the others dislike that tendency there is tension between them.It is…and always has been that way.
      Its nothing personal,unless you make it personal.
      That is when there is hatred.When an individual cant separate what they are from who they are.
      Thinking that something is wrong,doesnt translate to hate,unless you make it about hate.
      That is why we dont agree.I may feel differently about many conditions than you do,but I do not hate you.But when you make it ABOUT hate,BECAUSE I disagree with your position on a particular condition,then in your mind,it BECOMES about hate.
      Again,that is why we dont agree.
      The fact that you see hatred in me,reflects on your own perceptions,until you have foisted a HATRED on me that may not exist.
      I do not hate homosexuals,but they will say that I do,because they are not separating what they are from who they are.They hear me say that I do not think homosexuality is morally acceptable,and to them that translates to me hating them.It is simply not true.
      I can take an opposing thought to any particular subject,and it doesnt necessarily translate to hate unless the opposing person projects that upon me.
      The kicker here is that there are people who want to impose laws saying my position on morality is not of consequence.I disagree with that premise.As do they with mine,but I have never made it about hatred.
      But they have.They want to make laws saying the fact that I disagree with them and their form of thought is a hate crime.That is wrong no matter what you think.
      How you get haterd from a differing opinion of morality,is in that this is a way to arouse passion for ones cause.But it is still not hatred until you project that upon me.
      I do not hate yo Flashy,I disagree with your idealism,and you project hatred upon me.
      That is the difference.
      Cheers!
      -CC.

      • Karolyn

        cc – I think the difference here is that you are a person who does not project hatred; however, many of your compatriots do. Those who post wishing ill on others, calling them moron and idiot, talking of hangings, etc. all project hate. They are obviously hateful people.

      • Flashy

        CC….what makes you think i was referring to you?

        Track the comments. if someone espouses or supports a policy which does not take the hard extremeist right position, or calls someone on some absurd statement…the vast majority of replies are not arguing the policy or position but are attacks against the writer and those who would support the position.

        The extreme Right and American Taliban are driven by emotion…hate, fear, ignorance. this site proves that every day.

        There are some posts which causes me to sit back and think and balance with my thoughts and statements. Those are challenging and have value.

        BTW…i plead guilty to at times writing a personal attack just for the heck of it to rile folks. Not often…but there are times i admit I think such is called for and warranted. i ain’t a saint…yet.

    • DaveH

      We love what America stood for, Flashman, not what you Progressives have turned it into.
      This country was founded on Individual Liberty, NOT worship of the state.
      And you’re the only one here who is talking about Hate. But then, that’s all Liberals have, isn’t it — the great skills of emotional manipulation.
      It’s comical that you would use the word “honestly” in your comment, Flashman, since you have no credibility yourself.

        Deer,
        It is quite the opposite. Knowing what other countries have experienced at the hands of Progressives is exactly what proves to any thinking people that Progressivism is something that needs to be stopped before we become like them.
        I do understand that Liberals don’t learn from experience. They expect when they make mistakes to be carried by others who have done the necessary thinking.

      • DaveH

        Even if Progressivism did work, I wouldn’t want your kind of people making my choices, Deer. But it doesn’t even work! Progressivism has put countries in the economic tank everywhere that it has been unrestrained.

      • Meteorlady

        Deer – my aunt and uncle lived in Argentina and watch the same thing as is happening here bring that country down. they were once second only to the US in producing.

        So go study the history of Argentina and Venezuela and come back and tell me there isn’t an astounding sameness about what is happening here today…..

  • Harry

    Don’t be side-tracked by the Dems and their buddies in the liberal media. Obama’s reign of terror must be stopped – and the only way to do it is to get a Republican in the White House. To really finish the clean-up job, also vote for Republicans to control congress.

  • alboy

    This is going to be one hilarious election campaign.

    • Deerinwater

      Ain’t that the truth! Just watching the GOP primary unfold was a hoot! “999″ ! Watching a bunch of inept candidates dance about doing their Jig Dance and trying to hit every “Hot Button” at every whistle stop. The more serious they were the more comical they became.

      While the end results certain long ago, a GOP voter will follow the money and hansom looks every time. The smell of money and curb appeal is the bait to catch a Republican.

      What Cain thought he was doing and what his money backers knew he was doing were two different things.

      Ron Paul was the only candidate that knew what he was doing and knew how it would end. He was there to plant the seeds for tomorrow. Last I heard, he’d cornered 12% in popularity. This being his second attempt, I’d think it be higher but having never changed his message, he never smelled of money and the GOP voter never changed their bait preferences, so 12 % is what it is, a Libertarian vote. If you look at it that way it makes good sense.

      To think Rick Santroum, made it as far as he did, is a scary thought. He has such a lovey family, I would hope that he goes home and enjoys such good fortune. His dysfunctional Polly Anna views about free men and women and the role of government needs to stay localized and not permitted to spread.

      “If you don’t have any fresh ideas, then you use stale tactics to scare voters. If you don’t have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from.”

      That’s right Chip, that’s a powerful statement and it still ‘rings’ as true today as it did when Obama first made the statement. That’s exactly what Mitt Romney will have to defeat. Sadly, the only thing Mitt has in his possession to do it with is “Money”. Since his Track record stinks and he has yet to offer up any new ideas. Mitt Romney will say whatever he thinks voters wants to hear. That behavior turns democrats stomach, Mitt will not enjoy very many crossover votes.

      • jeepman1

        That’s funny…you guys baggin’ on “999″. What’s your man’s plan? Oh yeah! Spend, Spend, Spend!

      • Deerinwater

        Well, I admit 999 was simple enough to sell to anyone that can not hold a thought longer then 60 seconds. But I believe being easy to sell is only a virtue on the selling end. Something that only a Pizza Man would attempt to do. Two for one! etc! $9.99 for a 18inch with two topping.

        I’m not sure what you mean by “our guys plan” ~ I suppose you are referring to the Federal government and the current administration? So far, Obama is only been fulfilling the duties of office at president and depends on the House and Senate of which in made up “your guys and my guys” If you don’t approve of what “your guys” are doing, that up to you to do something about.

        There are many plans afoot, there are plans inside of plans but you would need to get beyond 999 to understand them.

      • Meteorlady

        Why are you here on this site? You don’t cite facts, you make fun of things, and you call names and insult. I think I read my last comment by you. You just don’t make any sense to me. I own a business and I work hard only to find people like advocating that I pay more and more of “my fair share” when 47% of the people in this country live here and benefit from my hard work. Is that fair?

        • Deerinwater

          I’m here for several reasons and I sometimes use hard data, return insults. Name call? rarely unless provoked.

          So much of what many cite as facts here is little more a link to some liars blog. Political dogma ~ God politics.

          I look at my time here like I would mining, I must go though a ton of crap to find a small nugget.

          These small nuggets make the effort of wading though all the crap barely worth my time. But I have and make good use of these nuggets.

          But still, it’s mostly crap, like most of your postings. You have made it perfectly clear that you work hard for little and that you are a victim.

          It’s like you seem to believe only you work hard and only you are a victim of today’s systems and politics. Well Madam, that is just not true, for we are all victims of the same thing. It’s just that some of us has realized that life is 90% how you “elect” to react to it.

          That you and your friend here elect to react poorly to the events thrust upon all of us is something only you can change.

          I see this social leaning to the left and would agree that it’s undesirable and unsustainable. But it didn’t start today or yesterday or last year or just in the last decade, we been on this path for sometime now. I don’t carry your fear or your fever, I don’t react like you.

          But this obsession of trying to live your tomorrows when they were never promised to you become a sickness. Live you minutes with one eye on tomorrow but don’t allow today to slip away and you wasted it worrying yourself to death.

          I am here to offer opposition where i see opposition needed.

          I will not allow any LOVE BOAT cruise, if i have my way. I hate pity parties.

        Hmm? Well? I told you that I really, really hate pity parties.

        The demented calling someone “sick” doesn’t have much “stick” to it David. Try something else. Show me what you got~ be mean to me. Lean into the fight, quit trying to fling a bugger at me and expect me to retreat.

      • DaveH

        Why would I want you to retreat, Deer? I want ignorant Liberals to post on this board so that the common person can see what you people are made of. You guys typically can’t back up your claims with factual references. You personally attack people who haven’t personally attacked you in any way as if that somehow wins the argument. You state emotionally derived conjectural Propaganda as if it were fact.
        In other words, you have nothing but manipulative tactics to offer, similar to those practiced by eighth grade mental bullies.
        The last thing I want is to chase your kind away.

        • Deerinwater

          Well David , I’m not asking you for permission! I’m here as long as Mr. Livingston will permit it. I plan to be in your face like onions, when it’s convenient for me. I do have other responsibilities and commitment placing you at the very bottom of my “To Do” list. I’ve already gave you a good spanking once, I guess that it’s worn off. Maybe I let you up too soon. The next time I get you backed up it a corner, I’m not going to let up. Your personal embarrassment is no longer a consideration of mine.

          “Baloney. Barack Obama has been campaigning for re-election for more than a year now (or, more accurately, about five minutes after he took office in January 2009)”

          That is a very accurate statement Chip Wood, I see it that way as well. I also see ZERO days in the traditional honeymoon period. The current administration has been systematically endured orchestrated attack from both the GOP and her disfranchised hate group since the first day of inauguration. These relentless attacks have been ignored only to a point possible before answered with counter measures that could well be conceived as campaigning.

      • Meteorlady

      • Sirian

        Doc,
        That is one of the poorest arguments to toss out. Anybody with a lick of sense knows that CEO’s salaries and perks are set by the board. And that is determined by the stock prices on a whole. As long as the company prospers, so to does the CEO, employees also. If it does not it is quite common to see the CEO either voted out by the board or merely resign. Good try, just doesn’t work anymore. Now go scrounge through your Alinsky bible and toss out another one of the old reliables.

      • Doc Sarvis

        Sirian, what difference does that make?

        Speaking of wearing his green-eyed glasses, here comes Doc with his list of envy.
        How about this, Doc?
        http://siteresources.worldbank.org/DATASTATISTICS/Resources/GNIPC.pdf

        I’m sorry, Doc, but, with the exception of those who achieved their riches by politics instead of pleasing their consumers, I wish success to those who do the necessary things to supply us with our plentiful and cheap goods and services.
        You and your fellow Progressive Followers have enabled the former by blindly accepting the class warfare promoted by Leaders and their Crony Capitalists whose main goal is to take advantage of the rest of us.
        You’re being played, Doc, and if you’d take some time to do some reading, you might wake up to that fact.

      • DaveH

        And according to the BLS, Doc, the mean wage in the US is $45,000.
        So, you’re trying to tell us that the average CEO makes $6.5 million a year?
        I suggest you supply references, because I am just a wee bit skeptical of that claim.

      • DaveH

        Sorry, Doc, by the time I got to the reply box, I was thinking the ratio you claimed was 145:1 instead of the 475:1 you actually claimed. So that would make the average CEO salary $21 Million a year.
        Pardon me if I don’t trust your figures.

      • eddie47d

        Companies and CEO’s prosper in other countries also but without the unbridled greed.

        The unbridled greed I see comes from Liberals lusting after other peoples’ money. Any common thief can rationalize why they deserve somebody else’s money.

      • Meteorlady

        So Eddie – in your opinion it’s unbridled greed that make me go to work each day and run my business? WOW – I always thought it was honorable to make money in order to exchange it with other honorable people than provide a service or goods to me. Here’s the deal Eddie – if I work hard and make a lot of money why are you entitled to any part of that? Didn’t you get the same public education as I did? Didn’t you have a chance to work your way through college as I did? Didn’t you have the chance to work menial jobs in order to save enough to start a business as I did?

        So stop with the class envy and go out and work for what you want like the rest of us honorable people do.

    • Cecil

      The rich don’t sit on their money. They invest in business, which provides jobs, or they keep it in the bank, which loans it to businesses to provide jobs. If they throw parties with it, they hire cooks and waitresses, providing jobs. Have you ever provided a job or two with your own investments?

      • Flashy

        I guess that’s why there aren’t tax shelter havens in the Caribbean and elsewhere and no Swiss bank accounts eh?

      • Bob Jeffrey

        This is where you are mostly wrong. The vast majority of their wealth is from investing in the stock market. Very little is actually invested in new business. Investing in the stock market does not create any new jobs.

      • DaveH

        Sure it does, Bob. A lion’s share of corporate funds comes from selling shares on the stock market. Without the stock market, they would be solely dependent on their own limited funds and borrowing in the bond market.

      • Meteorlady

        OMG BOB! So when I invest in a company it doesn’t provide money for expansion? How does that work exactly? What do they actually do with the extra cash they are given by me when I invest? Most companies that I am invested in base their stock dividends and CEO payouts on what they make.

        If I took my business public it would be for no other reason than to raise capital for expansion, which means I would need more employees.

    • Ted Crawford

      You must have read a far different Bible than I did Don! In the one i’ve read Christ declares that ” If a man will not work the he will nor eat” In fact his mandate for the care of the needy is reserved for Widows and Orphans, not any able bodied persons. That mandate fall on the Church and the Community not on any Government! In fact he clearly stated ” My Kingdom is NO part of this world “!
      The honest among us cannot absolve ourselves of the responsibility to care for our less fortunate neighbor by giving large sums of money to a Government that, verafiably, spends it on lavash junkets to exotic cities and on overly equipt planes to carry our leaders all over the world! Charity is, and should be a very personal responsibility!

      • Deerinwater

        “Charity is, and should be a very personal responsibility!”

        If it gets very personal it quits being charity at all.

        If it was a personal as you claim, how does these right wingers get the data to support their claim as being the most ‘generous’ givers of charity? Which by the way, never made much sense either unless they are include organized church giving, which I know for a fact are not comprised of exclusively “right wingers” .

        • Deerinwater

          actually, there are many forms of charity .

          . ALEC is a 501(c)(3)charity under the tax code. That means it’s not supposed to do any “substantial” lobbying — and its donors get a tax write-off for their contributions.

          As a 501(c)(3)charity — similar to the Red Cross or a religious congregation — ALEC is allowed to do some lobbying. The rule of thumb is up to about 20 percent of the budget. But on ALEC’s annual tax returns, where it asks if the organization engaged in any lobbying activities, ALEC officers check “no.”

          Charity could mean:
          Charity (practice), the practice of benevolent givings
          Charitable organization, an association formed for charitable purposes
          501(c)(3) organization which is a USA specific category for a public charity or a private foundation
          Charity (virtue), in Christianity
          Charity (name), a given name
          Charity (racehorse)
          Charity (programming language)
          HMS Charity (R29), a Royal Navy destroyer

          Origin of CHARITY

          Middle English charite, from Anglo-French charité, from Late Latin caritat-, caritas Christian love, from Latin, dearness, from carus dear; akin to Old Irish carae friend, Sanskrit kāma love
          First Known Use: 13th century
          Related to CHARITY

          Synonyms: almsgiving, dole, philanthropy
          Antonyms: coldheartedness, hard-heartedness, inhumanity, inhumanness, mercilessness,

          Funny, not a word about “voluntary” , maybe that is because it’s so damned obvious.

      • DaveH

        Only a Liberal could believe that donating other peoples’ money is charity.

      • Meteorlady

        So I work two days a week building Habitat housing. I also work for the program that mentors at risk children in my community. I am very involved in that work and it’s rewarding, unlike when I write a check to the Federal Government each year so they can redistribute what I make to those that don’t want to work, scam the welfare system, or scam whatever they can get their hands on.

        Charitiy is voluntary, income taxes are not. Charities get more value from the money they raise than the Federal Government. In fact no one single person in this community takes a salary for running or working for a charity. It all goes to those that need it most.

      • DaveH

        Considering that the average world income is $7000 per capita, I wonder what Deer and his fellow Liberal thieves are going to do when the One World Government distributes most of their wealth? I mean it’s just no fair that some citizens of the world have to live with so little when Deer has so much.
        I think Deer belongs to this society:

      I would prefer Ron to run third party and sweep both establishment Democrats and establishment Republicans out the door.
      For those who think he can’t do it. Look at how he fares in the Straw Polls, where the votes are coming from people who have actually heard him speak his ideas instead of getting their opinions from the Propaganda Media:
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Straw_polls_for_the_Republican_Party_presidential_primaries,_2012

      He has won 19 out of the last 30 Straw Polls.
      Mitt Romney has won only 3 of those out of thirty. Yet he is the front runner. Talk about people dutifully taking their Propaganda Pablum.

      • Thinking About

        Deception is not being truthful. When you proclaim you don’t vote for spending but you knowingly add earmarks to bills you know is going to pass and though you vote against the bill you take the money and run home you are deceiving the public. If also you think the 14% is going to beat the other two parties then go for it.

      • DaveH

        Name another politician, TA, who has voted NO more times than Ron Paul.
        And as I told you last time you issued your nonsense, if somebody took your wallet and threw your money in the air, it would be wrong for you to try to get as much of it back as you could?
        I am well aware of the Progressive gimmicky. First they convince innocent but ignorant people to join their con game, and then when the people wise up they tell the newly alert people that they are already part of the game and it’s wrong for them to quit it.
        Save your manipulative tactics for ignorant Liberals, TA.

      • DaveH

        Also note that those people who have actually listened to Ron Paul’s speeches overwhelmingly prefer him over the other candidates:
        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Straw_polls_for_the_Republican_Party_presidential_primaries,_2012
        And I don’t expect ignorant Liberals to vote for Ron, TA.

        • recce1

          While Rep. Paul has some good ideas, in one debate he convinced me he was an anarchist. I’m not talking about the wild-eyed bomb throwing type. I’m talking about a person who believes that humans are essentially good and would do the right things if completely free.

          When the Republican candidates were asked what they believed would be a fair amount of taxation from ALL sources, the answers ranged from 15% to 35%. However, Paul forcefully said ZERO, no taxation of people. Most people realize that not even local governments could survive.

          In addition, I believe Paul is a neo-isolationist. He’s willing to trade with other nations but that’s about it. A mushroom cloud over Tel Aviv wouldn’t bother him.

      • DaveH

        I believe you’re taking things out of context, Recce. Do you have any references?
        By the way in 1900 Government spent 6% of our GDP. Now they spend over 40% of our GDP. Do we really need 7X bigger Government than they did in 1900?
        Here is Ron Paul’s Defense platform:
        http://www.ronpaul2012.com/the-issues/national-defense/

        By the way, which would be a more desirable neighbor — one who leaves you alone and interacts peacefully with you, or one who comes over to your house and nags you and bullies you to do things his way?
        You call it Isolationist, Recce, we call it non-interventionist.

        • recce1

          What was I taking out of context? Was it that Rep. Paul in a debate did say he favored no taxation from any source? I’m sorry, he said it in a major forum and never took it back, never said he misunderstood or misspoke. So excuse me if I think he meant it.

          In 1900 the US wasn’t a word power. Unfortunately it was WW 2 that made us into one and also brought us out of the Great Depression. It certainly wasn’t any of FDR’s socialist plans that helped the country recover. As a matter of fact, he prolonged the recovery from the Depression However, should we have sat both WW 1 & 2 out?

          Back at the turn of the 20th century it took over a month to drive across the country. Many Americans didn’t have running water, sewage, or electrical power. Our lives were much shorter and infant mortality was much greater. Do you know that more Americans died of the Spanish Flu than were killed in WW 1? Is this what you want to go back to?

          Now I do agree that government spending is completely out of control. I’d say that easily 50 to 60% of what the federal government does isn’t part of the Enumerated Powers. Heck, some claim it could be upwards of 76%.

          As for its first responsibility, protecting our borders, it’s failing, and I believe by design. The second responsibility is protecting the rights and benefits of American citizens. Again it’s failing.

          As for you neighborly example, the specific example you pose is akin to fascism/socialism, two sides of the same coin. But that’s not what I’m addressing. However, I suppose the Good Samaritan was meddling, is that it? So if you see you neighbor being beaten being a non-interventionist just means you go back indoors because it’s none of your business? Have you ever heard of the 1964 Kitty Genovese case in NYC?

          Again, I believe the government meddles far too much in others affairs, but Rep. Paul would go to Congress first if America was under attack before he took action? I don’t call that non-interventionist. I call that being a Chamberlain or a Quisling.

          Furthermore, while I’m glad Rep. Paul served in the Air Force, it was for 2 years active duty and 3 in the Guard as a Flight Surgeon. He didn’t see combat. That hardly makes him an expert on the military or national defense, although it’s far better than Mr. Obama’s experience.

        • http://none John W. Riley

          In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh ,
          had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior:

          “A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent
          form of government.
          A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can
          vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury.
          From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the
          most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally
          collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship.”

          “The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has
          been about 200 years.
          During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

          From bondage to spiritual faith;
          From spiritual faith to great courage;
          From courage to liberty;
          From liberty to abundance;
          From abundance to complacency;
          From complacency to apathy;
          From apathy to dependence;
          From dependence back into bondage.”
          The Obituary follows:

          Born 1776, Died 2012
          It doesn’t hurt to read this several times.

          Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul , Minnesota ,
          points out some interesting facts concerning the last Presidential election:

          Number of States won by: Obama: 19 McCain: 29
          Square miles of land won by: Obama: 580,000 McCain: 2,427,000
          Population of counties won by: Obama: 127 million McCain: 143 million
          Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Obama: 13.2 McCain: 2.1

          Professor Olson adds: “In aggregate, the map of the territory McCain won was
          mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country.

          Obama territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low income
          tenements and living off various forms of government welfare…”

          Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the
          “complacency and apathy” phase of Professor Tyler’s definition of democracy,
          with some forty percent of the nation’s population already having reached
          the “governmental dependency” phase.

          If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal
          invaders called illegal’s – and they vote – then we can say goodbye to the
          USA in fewer than five years.

          If you are in favor of this, then by all means, delete this message.

          If you are not, then pass this along to help everyone realize just how much is at
          stake, knowing that apathy is the greatest danger to our freedom..

          Please take the time to read, very interesting stats, best regards!
          This is truly scary!
          Of course we are not a democracy, we are a Constitutional Republic .
          Someone should point this out to Obama.
          Of course we know he and too many others pay little attention to The Constitution.
          There couldn’t be more at stake than on Nov 6, 2012.

          If you are as concerned as I am please pass this along.

      • recce1

        Meteorlady, I never said or implied that Rep. Paul was unintelligent. I believe quite the opposite. That’s why I said he had a lot to offer. But I just don’t think he’d make a good president, although he’d be much better than Obama and possibly Romney. Now as a Vice-President…

        What I did say is that he’s an isolationist. His statement about what if we were attacked is not relevant other than he believes we should abide by the Constitution, something no other president has done since FDR with regards to war. As a matter of fact, Obama is probably the worst as he went to war with Libya without even a word to Congress. That’s surely impeachable. It’s something I certainly wouldn’t expect of Rep. Paul if he were president.

        I also mentioned what Rep. Paul said in a debate this year about the rate of taxation. Surely you can’t deny that. His idea is simply unworkable, although we do need to lower taxation and repeal the 16th, oops, the 17th Amendment. Well, when I think of it let’s also repeal both. By the way, 2000 was 12 years ago. Beliefs change.

      • DaveH

        Our Founders intended the Federal Government to get their taxes from the States, NOT the people, Recce. So Ron Paul is right in line with our Freedom-loving Founders is he did say that. I would like to see a reference though, as being human, there is a very good chance that you are taking his statement out of context:
        From the Constitution, Article 1, Section 2:
        “direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons”.
        And like I said in another rebut to your Isolationist accusation –> Ron Paul is a Non-Interventionist. Instead of meddling in other countries politics, he wants to trade freely with them and keep our military out of their business.
        I really don’t understand people like you who would never dream of trying to use force against your neighbor who is just minding his/her own business, but somehow if they’re in a neighbor country you advocate going in, picking a side, and bullying the rest of the citizens. You expect our country’s Leaders to abide by the Constitution and respect our Freedom, but it’s okay for them to trample other countries’ peoples’ Freedom?
        In my opinion, those people who can rationalize the Freedom Trampling and Killing and Maiming of other countries’ citizens, are really not much different than the Liberals who can rationalize Stealing other peoples’ money and personal choices.

        • recce1

          In the January Fox News GOP debate in Myrtle Beach, SC the candidates were asked what they believed the highest tax rate should be from ALL sources. Many have reported the question as to what the highest Federal income tax rate should be. But that’s not what the question was.

          http://dailycaller.com/2012/01/17/paul-federal-income-tax-rate-should-be-zero-percent/#ixzz1swvGKw5M

          Of course the 16th Amendment established the Federal Income Tax. However, I believe it was a serious mistake, along with the 17th Amendment. Remember, that was during the era of Wilson and the Progressives. Their intent was to diminish the power of the sovereign States with the eventual goal of creating a “democracy” or as others have called it, “mobocracy.” Those 2 Amendments and the 10th were meant to help the States keep the Federal government in check in accordance with the concept of federalism.

          Since then about every president and Congress has worked to one degree or another to consolidate power in the Federal government. As it is, the Bill of Rights and Article 1 Section 8 are moribund.

          I think you missed my point about defense and the use of the military. The use of military force should be very limited and used with the “Just War” concept kept in mind. That concept predates the the discovery of the New World. However, there’s nothing in the Constitution that forbids the US from first declaring war on another country. What the Constitution demands is that the president get a Declaration of War, and I believe a formal one, from Congress before committing troops to anything but fending off an actual attack on the US.

          As an example, I believe FDR did it correctly after Japan attacked the US and Hitler declared war 2 days later. The polar opposite would be Mr. Obama’s declaring war on Libya by himself. He didn’t even consult Congress. As for Bush Jr., he got a feel good resolution to go after Hussein, but not a formal declaration of war. Although Hussein was bellicose, was trying to get WMDs, said he wanted nukes to attack the uS and Israel, and had attacked about 4 other countries, he didn’t pose an imminent threat to the US, any US bases, or allies. As for the latter, keep in mind that treaties are considered the “Law of the Land.” That’s why they can be so dangerous.

          Quite frankly, I don’t think you and I are that far apart. As for Rep. Paul, I think he sometimes shoots from the lip and that bothers me. Nevertheless, I’m not really happy with any of the GOP candidates and certainly not with Mr. Obama.

      It goes deeper than that Karolyn and the facts are being bent to suit the election and the truth be damned. Both sides have done this over the years and it has become a form of cruelty towards the American people. In this case the Republicans do want to water down any environmental rules such as the Clean Air Act which would in turn increase health and breathing problems for thousands if not millions. How can they say they are on the side of the citizen when relaxing the laws would create harm? Republicans want more tax cuts without anything to replace that lost revenue. Which means Research,Healthcare,Transportation,Infrastructure,Education would take major hits. They say America is falling behind yet refuse to finance the projects that would get us ahead. There is a difference between wanting to control costs and keeping us on a steady coarse. I don’t give either party much credit there for there has been reckless spending on one side and reckless sabotage from the other.

    How low can you go? Gee, the hateful, vicious comments about President Obama by various contributors to this website certainly show that the Democrats have no monopoly whatsoever on cruelty, hatred, and ugly lies.

      • jeepman1

        Yes mark, it sounds eerily similar to comments from the left wing blogs. And, it reminds me of the death threats from the left Bush endured, as well. Threatening the president is illegal. As is putting bounties out on citizens. I just find it amusing that left wingnuts seem to be more tolerant of their own threats and howl when right wingnuts sound off.

        And, where are the admonitions when democrat politicians “mis-step”? Non-existant. Imagine the furor if a Republican called activists “Nazis” like Pelosi did. Or, how about when Stark asked one his constituents “Who are you going to kill today?” Nice, huh? I could go on, but you get my point.

    • Brian

      Mark,

      Politics is a dirty business and there is wrong doing on both sides of the aisle. But rather than throw a red herring at us, why don’t you counter our claims with FACTS.

      The fact is, Obama and many policiticians are liars and connivers. Why do you think congress has such a low approval rating? They talk about ‘tax cuts’ when they really mean they aren’t going to raise our taxes as much as they had originally planned. They talk about ‘investements’ in green energy that goes to companies that end up going belly up. (0h, and some of those companies juast happen to be DNC donors, but that didn’t influence the loan guarantee process, right?) Obama outright REJECTED his oath of office by refusing to defend DOMA, a law that was passed by an overwhelming majority in both houses and signed into law by Clinton. Holder REFUSED to do his job to investigate ‘his people’ when there was clear video evidence of voter intimidation in Philadelphia. Obamacare, with it’s individual mandate (clearly unconstitutional to the most causal observer) only got through the House due to closed door deals (so much for the promoise of transparency and CSPAN coverage), such as with Nebraska, and supported by such arguements as “we have to pass it to find out what is in it.” They make promises without bothering to figure out a way to keep those promises (eg. unfunded social security and medicare). We have many who view our constitution as something to get around rather than to support and defend (eg Phil “I don’t worry about the Constitution” Hare and Pete “congress can do anything they want” Stark.)

      And you wonder why those who love this counrty are angry?

    The Buffet Rule would be mostly symbolic since it wouldn’t put a dent into salaries of the wealthy. What it would do is to make the Middle Class feel like they are important again and not being run over by the unrepentant schemes of the richest Americans. That the hard work of those Middle Class citizens won’t be ignored while the salaries of the wealthiest take off like a runaway freight train without anything trickling down to provide the needed jobs.

    • DaveH

      Eddie,
      If their wealth is undeserved, it should be easy for you to start your own company and join them in a moral way, instead of rationalizing the theft of their legally earned money.
      The only thing keeping you from it is the amount of work and learning you’re willing to do, and the obstacles which have been presented to would-be competitors by the Crony Leaders who you Progressives have enabled by your jealousy-driven votes.

      • Flashy

        no one is advocating theft. it is asking they pay for their benefits received rather than have the rest of the country support them via a form of welfare

      • Ted Crawford

        OK, Flashy, at just what point will the lower 50% pay their share for the even larger amount of benifits they recieve? Fair will happen only when Everybody has some skin in the game!

      • DaveH

        There is only one True Fair Tax, Flashman. That is for every adult to pay the same tax regardless of income. Car dealers can’t demand our income statements before they offer us a price, why should Government be able to?

Demanding salaries and pensions that are unconscionable which throw fortunes their way but weakens the company. You can call it crony Capitalism all you want but it’s normal procedure so stop defending the corrupt Capitalists who are wrecking havoc on our nation. Unless you “true Capitalists” are on board in changing those moral values in the financial world then you are only blowing smoke. You may not want business as usual on Wall Street yet we seldom see any reforms coming from your way and actions do speak louder than words.

      • Average Joe

        eddie47d,
        All of the things you complain about are simply part of the human condition….you can’t regulate morality. However, instead of blaming those “greedy” corporatists, maybe you should consider blaming your elected officials…..who refuse to monitor these “greedy” folks….or actually enforce laws on the books. The “greediness” is not the problem…it’s the lack of enforcement….plain and simple. The last time I checked, most of the things you complain about…are unlawful acts….which should be prosecuted…..but aren’t being……

        Blame the right people….if the laws were enforced…..all of your complaints would vanish…quickly.

    I realize many fraudulous politicians have been helped along by satan himself although not a one of them will acknowledge that it is God who gives all of us our brains and a heart that can and should turn to God, but God gves us a free will to do whatever our selfishness warrants. But Oh! what punishment awaits those who have turned to crooked lawlessness, fraud and attempts to deceive as many people as possible! Many of our politicians are still hard at it to get their own selfish way. The chief of them is, of course, Obama at the wheel, as he tries to ruin one of the greatest – if not the greatest – countries on earth. But I wouldn’t want to be him (even with all his millions) as he encounters God, for all his filthy, lowly, inhuman, deceitfulness, selfishness, and fraud and crookedness, as he sought to worm himself into the White House, by devious means. He has the respect of NOBODY! Even not from those who have their hand out for their pay-offs. He has in mind to take all the deserving credit and riches that other men have made and give it to those muslims and other crooks who do not acknowledge nor respect the God of the universe. Why does he think he is smarter than God Who will make him accountable in the end? And all of those whose hearts were blackened already who fell in line behind him; do not they all know that they cannot beat God’s system whatever they do? The Bible says “every knee shalll bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord indeed!” Their money won’t mean a thing at the judgment seat. I wonder just how their stealth will accomplish their fraud at the voting booths? well, I don’t put my trust in government; not anymore. I have seen just how low men (and women) can go. I will be voting against Obama and all his henchmen in November, but probably my vote won’t even count, although I was born and raised and worked here all my life. But I trust God’s judgment! I want to ask God to bless America. but too many peopele have turned away from God. I think it’s too late.

    Chip, You forgot that “Politics ain’t beanbag”. The Fear Factor is a major weapon for both parties. It works because the public doesn’t stay informed about what is going on. Shucks, it doesn’t even know who it’s Representatives are who is on the Supreme Court. Some don’t even know that Social Security is a government program. The media gets one message right: “The public has not yet begun to focus on the elections”. By the time they do, they are only guessing.
    So much for a well-informed electorate! To paraphrase an old saying: “There are liars, damn liars, and politicians.”

    The liberals always want to make the tax code ‘fair’ by raising taxes on those who make more (a play right out of the Communist Manifesto and Kark Marx’s writings). What is wrong with making the tax code ‘fair’ by LOWERING taxes on those who make less?????

    • DaveH

      “Fair” would be for every adult to pay the same amount of taxes. The size of the Federal Government would shrink dramatically if everybody had the same skin in the game, as it should be. Then we could start working on our Local Leviathan Governments.

      • Brian

        Actually, income tax is unconstitutional in the Constitution’s original intent. Our founding fathers specified all direct taxes (taxes paid by a person and not levied on goods) were to be “apportioned” meaning everyone pays the same regardless. This scheme prevents class warfare. Passage of the 16th amendment was the foot in the door for socialism. Our progressive income tax system is a play right out of the communist manifesto.

    • Meteorlady

      So let me get this right? When the Bush tax cuts were passed they benefited the “rich”? So why did they give us a lower bracket of 10%? Why did they add $500.00 to the child tax credit? Why did they give parents of special needs children a deduction for special education? Why did they do away with the inheritance tax (which would hit many middle Americans if their parents owned a home, car and had a bank account and saving account)? Why did they close some of the loopholes that the rich previously had? Why did they do away with the marriage penalty?

      The only thing about those cuts that can be construed as for the “rich” would be the capital gains of 15% which actually helped me save money to expand my business…..

      Why are there 17 jobs bills written by Republicans still sitting in the Senate an will probably never come up for vote? Why are tax decreases wrong when they put more money in your hands to buy good and services?

      What about the 5 Blacks that kidnapped two white people. They raped the man, cut off his penis, and killed him while is friend was forced to watch. They they too her and gang raped her for four days, poured toxins down her throat, cut off her breasts and then killed her? If that is not the HATE CRIME of the century I don’t know what is – yet no media report.

      • Average Joe

        The point was:
        It was being broadcast LIVE…no reporting, no commentary on the proceedings by the media…just the actual courtroom proceeding.
        I am no fan of MSNBC or any other MSM outlet for that matter. However, there has been much discussion on this site (and many others) about this case…and since it was being broadcast LIVE…it was the best way to find out first hand what the prosecuting attny and state has to present as well as the defense in the case. Had any of you watched it, you might have actually learned something about the case…other than “Media Reports”. You may have found out that according to one of the state’s lead investigators they have a witness that was on the phone with Treyvon when all of this went down and claims Treyvon told her that he was afraid because a man was following him. However, upon cross examination, it was admitted that the person didn’t come forward until a month after the shooting…and was actually out of state when the phone call occurred. Now, why would Treyvon call someone out of state to say he was in fear of being harmed…rather than call his dad…who lives just down the street and could actually come to his aid….and why did the person Treyvon called wait for a month before contacting authorities? Most of the state’s case was based upon conjecture and inflamatory statements within the actual indictment order.
        Anytime you want real facts…..seeing and hearing it live…is the best possible way to know the whole story…vesus the media condensed (and biased) version.
        Good day.

    Obama has not “been campaigning for re-election for more than a year now”. He has never stopped campaigning. It’s the only thing he does well. He has proven an incompetent leader and executive.

    It seems Obama is moving to the right and Romney to the left, from a platform promise POV.

  • http://liberty Tony

    To Everyone:
    I know, i discussed this yesterday. But, i’m going to say again. Obama is going to win by a landslide because of his competition or should i say, lack of. Sorry for the prognosis, yet we have to face the facts. TGIF!!

    • RichE

      Tony,
      Don’t count Romney out; he’s using more left hook and less right jab. He’s got the white males. He needs to get women and Hispanics. He can do that with a little more left and throw a few rights to keep the white males. Besides, where can the white males go?

      • http://liberty Tony

        To RichE.:
        The problem sir, is Romney has, literally, alienated Hispanics, women, and working class males. I mean, making statements about his late father shutting down plants,laying off thousands of workers, and making a “huge profit” from it. Then, the caveat, he’s suppose to be enroute to giving an important speech about econ. growth with job creation to a depressed working class area in northern Wisc. What does that tell you!?! Look at this http://www.usaelectionpolls.com and this will, unfortunately, explain this years election. True, it’s early and polls are only fads of the moment but this is highly indicative of where this election is going. The fix is in for Obama to win. Sorry!!

        • RichE

          Tony,
          Not sure why you’re sorry, polls are 50-50. Obama will have a harder time converting white male right wingers than Romney getting women and Hispanics,

      • Average Joe

        Sorry, Mitt won’t be getting my vote…and neither will Obama…My vote has not changed…I will be voting Ron Paul / Andrew Napolitano. Sorry, I don’t play the “PARTY” game…I vote my conscience…period.
        Before someone tells me that a vote for Ron Paul is a vote for Obama, I will remind you that it is my vote (to cast as I see fit) and considering that Mitt is just another version of Obama….the lesser of two evils…is still evil and I won’t vote for either of the two.

    • http://gravatar.com/bychoosing Jay

      We loose either way, Tony. In fact, if i were a progressive-obaminite-liberal, i would cheer for Romney, as Romney will only continue to build upon what obama, and previous administrations have been carefully constructing for years; Stalinist-Socialism. And when the final pieces of the puzzle are set in place by Romney, and the horror effects of Socialism become undeniable; the ultra-left can then point their self-rightiuos finger and lay the blame at the feet of the Conservatives, while divesting themselves of any guilt. And still, even then, the stupefied masses will not have a clue, that they have been hood-winked by the left-right paridigm, circus act; or the good cop-bad cop routine, and that, both parties, conspired, and in full agreement with one to another, worked towards the same goal; that being; the transfer of all power and wealth to the ruling oligarchy. Then, labels, political parties, will no longer be necessary, and their use no longer needed, as the only party that will be ruling, i have no doubt; will be called “Masters”!

      So, before you cheer, or vilify, either party, you may want to realize that you are in essence, aiding and abetting, and playing right into their hands. What we need to do is to let them know, that we know. Another words, expose them; but certainly; not vote for them!!!

  • Darline

    After the Congress has allowed Mr. Obama to stay in office in violation of the Constitution and has allowed him to break laws, I am not suprised that he is going dish dirt at everyone that would speak out against him. He has especially harmed the poor and the elderly financially and the only reason that there was a raise in Social Security and SSI this year is because it is an election year and he is trying to buy votes. Those that think that Obama is going to win are living in Lala Land.

  • uvuvuv

    i didn’t read any of the comments yet but will go back to them. fdr repeatedly gave his fireside chats to reassure the nation that he cared for the dispossessed and was trying to win back their former prosperity. clinton was famous for saying, i feel your pain. but never have i heard similar comments from obama. it’s as if the u/e rate and the ramping up of the foreclosures are statistics that make his eyes glaze over. he was originally voted in even by cross-over repubs because of a national feeling of guilt over the degraded situation of the blacks. which, 50 years since affirmation action and the voters rights act and the great society and the war on poverty, is still degraded. in the early 1900s and before, they had irish ghettos and polish ghettos and italian and jewish. these were especially prevalent in nyc, and tammany hall took advantage of their votes, but these groups were able to move into mainstream american life very successfully. but the blacks continue to live in the same conditions, and now it seems the hispanics are confined to ghettos also. now here comes a president who could have actively helped them. do you think if we had an american indian president the “native americans” would still be stuck on their shabby reservations? but the blacks are stuck even though this president should have been their tireless advocate. but conveniently he has the previous administration to blame. they left office with the u/e rate at a shocking 4.6% (bls). so whom will these groups vote for? gee, i wonder.

  • GERRYH

    All you have to do is look under BARRY SOETORO, A FOREIGN STUDENT FROM COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY, IN THE CITY OF NEW YORK, CARD #600962011054355, this is where BARRACK OBAMA STARTS IN THE USA. His roommates Muhamad Hasan Chandoo and Wahid Hamid, both from Pakistan. A ROUND THE WORLD TRIP in his 2nd year of college, stayed with is Pakistan roommate’s family that he met at COLUMBIA, then went to HARVARD LAW SCHOOL. WHERE DID HE GET ALL THIS MONEY? Obama didn’t come from rich people, they were poor. He worked in Chicago as a Community Organizer for $12,000 a year. When he lived in New York, he met ANTOIN “TONY” REZKO, born in ALEPPO, SYRIA, a real estate developer in Chicago. REZKO was named “Entrepreneur of the Decade” by THE ARAB-AMERICAN BUSINESS AND PROFESSIONAL ASSOC.. Two years later, Obama enters HARVARD LAW SCHOOL. After Harvard, he went back to Chicago where REZKO offered him a job, but turned in down to work for DAVID, MINER, BARNHILL & GALLAND. This is also where Michele worked. REZKO was one of Obama’s first MAJOR FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTORS when he ran for office in Chicago. Then in 2003 Rezko threw a fundraiser for Obama, the Chicago Tribune reporter David Mendelland claims this was instrumental in providing Obama with “SEED MONEY FOR THE U.S. SENATE RACE. Three weeks before Obama buys his new home for $1.65 M, the London Times reports that NADHMI AUCHI, AND IRAQI-BORN BILLIONAIRE loaned REZKO $3.5M. Again I ask you, WHERE IS HE GETTING HIS MONEY?? Obama met with NADHMI AUCHI many times with REZKO. Now we have Obama running for PRESIDENT. Valerie Jarret, was MICHELE OBAMA’S BOSS AND now is OBAMA’S CHIEF ADVISOR. WHERE WAS VALERIE JARRETT BORN…SHIRAZ IRAN. DO YOU SEE A PATTERN HERE? ROBERT MALLEY ADVISOR TO OBAMA WAS sacked after the press found out he was having regular contacts with “HAMAS” who controlls GAZA AND IS CONNECTED WITH IRAN. During Obama’s visit to IRAQ, Obama asked their leaders to DO NOTHING ABOUT THE WAR until he is ELECTED, THEN HE WILL TAKE CARE OF THINGS. Now what the heck does that mean?
    NOW THE BIG QUESTION- IF I AND OTHERS FOUND OUT ALL THIS INFORMATION ON OUR OWN, WHY HASN’T OUR INTELLIGENT MEMBERS OF THE PRESS AND OUR GOVERNMENT BEEN REPORTING THIS. SOUNDS LIKE A COVER-UP TO ME??
    The verbal slip that was posted by the Washington Times on Sept 7, 2009 when Obama was talking about HIS RELIGION, HE SAID “MY MUSLIM FAITH” And if you check into Wikipedia, encyclopedia on Barabk Obama, Tony,Rezko, Valerie Jarret; DailyTimes – Obama visited Pakistan in 1981: The Washington Times- September 7, 2008; The Times- May 10, 2008. CHECK FOR YOURSELVES.

      “The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2012[1] was signed into United States law on December 31, 2011, by President Barack Obama.[2][3]
      The Act authorizes $662 billion[4] in funding, among other things “for the defense of the United States and its interests abroad.” In a signing statement, President Obama described the Act as addressing national security programs, Department of Defense health care costs, counter-terrorism within the U.S. and abroad, and military modernization.[5][6] The Act also imposes new economic sanctions against Iran (section 1045), commissions reviews of the military capabilities of countries such as Iran, China, and Russia,[7] and refocuses the strategic goals of NATO towards energy security.[8]

    I certainly don’t want to defend this RINO Mitt Obam-ney until he is the official GOP nominee to challenge BHO in November. On the other hand, what is so wrong about having a dog secured on an exterior portion of a vehicle?? Although I am back in New York and don’t see it much, when I lived in Florida I saw many pick-up trucks with dogs in the rear bed. I would assume they enjoyed ride. And while there, I had a couple of cars with no air conditioning, and I think I’d rather be on the exterior than inside the vehicle, where temperatures can be 20 degrees hotter than outside. If you were a dog, who would rather have for an owner – someone who will eat you, or someone who allows you to ride with a refreshing breeze??

  • http://priscillaking.blogspot.com Priscilla King

    It’ll be hard for Obama to say anything nasty about Romney when they’re so much alike (e.g. thinking we can rely on their personal characters to protect us from unconstitutional legislation, or thinking they have a right to force us to buy into gambling schemes).

    • Searcher4851

      I think one of the big character differences would be that Romney “gambles” with his OWN money. Obama is the one that steals it from the working people before he gambles it away on Solyndra, First Solar, and the like. Nevermind, my mistake. I forgot that he “invested” that 2.5 billion dollars in his campaign donors at those companies.

  • Carol Fryer

    I agree with Priscilla. I think they are exactly alike. The GOP at the top is getting more and more liberal along with the dems. And in reality, its not getting liberal, its globalist. Our government on both sides has willingly given itself over to international powers. As the video I just watched of Sessions interviewing the military leader shows, even some in Congress are shocked at how much they totally disregard our constitution. You think George Bush was the only one that thought it was only a G*d dmned peice of paper? There has been so much treason at the top for years and its become common place. We think we’re free, but they think we’re owned,,,,by them.

    Hello rednecks out there. You need to have Romney release 5 years of tax returns. Romney’s not freely releasing his tax return, because he is a tax cheat. Tax cheats are the lowest form of life.

      Dear Harry Emtman,

      Having a bad day? Must be, as you have resorted to stereotyping and ad hominems to make yourself feel superior.

      You write: “Romney’s not freely releasing his tax return, because he is a tax cheat.” Supposition on your part, or do you have proof? If you have proof, please provide it. It’d make a great column. However, I suspect your claims have as much validity as your opening address.

      A word of caution: If this is the best you are capable of bringing to the discussion, this crowd will eat you alive.

      Best wishes,
      Bob

      Mr. Emtman says: Tax cheats are the lowest form of life.

      Hmm, i think i know where you’re going this. After all, what would happen, if all who worked hard and produced a honest living, decided to keep/with-hold, or cheat, as you say, their hard-earned money? I guess it would mean that all those who cheat, by not working and accepting money they didn’t work for, would then be free to get off their fat, lazy a$$es, and actually work for a living. Understandably, this has you petrified.

    ROMNEY FOR PRESIDENT ! ! obama has to go if he loves his country he will pull out of the race 1 week before election

  • http://foxnews.com jojo

    harry you are a idiot.

  • louie1

    That’s exactly what I thought after I heard Bill Clinton’s second speech when he first ran for president. Then I felt that way the very first time I listened to Obama speak. So, can you explain why that kind of behavior turns only Democrats stomachs, instead of saying it turns VOTERS’ stomachs? Just very curious……….

  • Searcher4851

    Let’s see, he hasn’t released his tax returns, so you haven’t seen them, so you KNOW without a doubt he cheated on them? That’s the kind of logic and thinking that put Obama in the Whitehouse. Don’t bother with facts, just make stuff up.

    • Searcher4851

      Looks like Harry took his post and ran away to hide with it.

  • louie1

    As I’ve read these comments, I’ve felt that the Liberals are trying to divert the readers comments from the article by incensing them with outrageous remarks of their own. I speak of Doc, Alex, Eddie47, Karolyn, mainly. As Liberals or Progressives (which I know Karolyn will deny) they don’t want us to bear in mind the fact that Obama is just now, according to his staff, beginning his campaign. What has all the donation begging appearances been up to now? Is the fact that he’s not ANNOUNCED his campaign officially the reason he’s been using taxpayer money to pay for these many appearances? In the meantime, his ‘war chest’ grows greatly every time he’s on the road. Since Bill Maher gave a cool $1 mil. does that mean he’s going to take lessons on being vile on the ‘campaign trail’ from Maher? He really doesn’t need lessons. He said it all to the DNC National Convention 4 years ago when he said: “If you don’t have any fresh ideas, then you use stale tactics to scare voters. If you don’t have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from.” His tactics are lowdown and dirty as he can make them, and make them he does. He definitely is the lowest of the low and no matter what the aforementioned people say, they can’t change the snakeskin he was born with.

  • Deerinwater

    I do wonder when Mitt plans to release his Federal filings. I’m amazed that he’s been given such latitude. It’s not going to look good to anyone if he’s not paid or paid a small 14% and still be stuck with him as your champion and contender.

    • http://gravatar.com/bychoosing Jay

      For sure, deer. And while we’re at it, we should include Warren Buffet to the list; who hasn’t paid his taxes since 2002, and is advising dufus in the white house to tax the rich. Hmm, progressive’s motto should be: “What is yours is mine, and what is mine is mine” You people are such hypocrites!

      • RichE

        Jay,
        Are you referring to the company, Berkshire Hathaway’s 2002-2004 tax appeal with the IRS?

      • http://gravatar.com/bychoosing Jay

        Obviously Rich, as Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson notes, the company openly admits that it owes back taxes since as long ago as 2002.

        “We anticipate that we will resolve all adjustments proposed by the US Internal Revenue
        Service (“IRS”) for the 2002 through 2004 tax years … within the next 12 months,” the firm’s annual report says. It also cites outstanding tax issues for 2005 through 2009.

      • Deerinwater

        I wasn’t aware that “Warren Buffet ” was running for President?

      • http://gravatar.com/bychoosing Jay

        No, Warren Buffet is not, running for President. So why then, is this Capitalist, tax-cheating Billionaire, Warren Buffet, advising the President to raise taxes on other rich, Capitalists? When he himself, Warren Buffet, a Capitalist, tax-cheating billionaire, refuses to pay his back taxes? Hypocritical, don’t you think; Mr. Hypocrite?

        • Deerinwater

          I was not aware that “Warren Buffet ” was in this discussion Jay. And as far as this preoccupation with hypocritical statements and values, maybe you should be more mindful of the manure you spread like a “Rancher” with a stable full of Clydesdale’s .

        Did you even read the article, mr. deer? Warren Buffet, is most certainly part of the discussion. Perhaps you’re right, i should be less preoccupied with your hypocrisy, as i should be more concerned for your mental instability!

    I’m interested in finding out what Amy Brundage thinks is a FAIR SHARE – they don’t even have a clue of what it is. They just shut their eyes and tried to pin the tail on the donkey. The admistration’s knowledge of business and econoics is almost non-existent. Or, maybe its just POLITICS????

    What’s the number, AMY? Your are the spokeswoman!

    • RichE

      Howard,
      It’d be more interesting to know what everyone else thought, ‘Fare Share’ meant?
      Total annual tax burden for the average citizen is around 54%. That includes state, county, and school taxes to name a few.

    • Raggs

      Your “fair share” is 100% of nothing as long as you contribute to the king oblama election…

  • louie1

    Gol-lee! I’m still stuck on the fact that I thought he’s been campaigning since I first heard of him running for the Illinois Senate. Goes to show that, until he announces he’s campaigning, all these political trips he takes to get donations to his campaign weren’t really campaigning. His interpretation is certainly different from that of the majority of us!

  • JT

    Probably the only time I voted with total enthusiasm for a presidential candidate was the first time I was old enough to vote: President Eisenhower’s second term. Ever since it was mostly for “the lesser of the evils, although I am glad I voted for Reagan twice.” I believe I will be able to vote enthusiastically for Mitt Romney. I think he is a good man, in spite of the liberal media’s efforts to villify him.

          and proving either can often be a challenge while it appears obvious.

        • recce1

          Dave, thieves steal you belongings, racists steal your dignity, spirit, and sometimes your life.

      • DaveH

        It’s no challenge at all, Deer, to an intelligent person. You vote for Politicians to steal other peoples’ money. You are a thief. It is as simple as that to any moral and intelligent person.

        • Deerinwater

          I vote for people that I think might best lead us through difficult times David and they take my money as well. It’s referred to as one nations organized and consolidated efforts to address the needs of it’s people by elected Representatives of the people.

          That you don’t approve of the current leadership, I really don’t give a $hit. I wasn’t so peachy keen on the previous myself, so forgive my less then sympathetic view to your feeling or wishes. I’d suggest that you get over it and try to move on, accepting your losses like I have had to do. Don’t permit your yesterdays to limit your tomorrows.

          I truly doubt if you ever had much to steal David. You have never suggested you had any experience in Venture or business. While you have initiated us with Libertarian political dogma on a purely academic level for over a year now.

          I am a pirate David and the world is my oyster. It could be yours too but it seems that you would rather hide and bury your treasure. That is not what owning wealth is about David.

          I’m looking for a win/win in everything ~ I don’t believe that in order to win , someone must lose. I don’t see the world in such a way, while clearly you do.

          The position that you elect to take is the one of “victim” the “loser” while you refuse to engage, commit or invest in anything other then just cheap idle talk and “lip service”.

      • DaveH

        Don’t tell me about your business experience, Deer. I can see from your comments that you know nothing about Economics. And given that Liberals are typically liars, I wouldn’t believe you anyway. So just stick to the facts (if you know any). Your personal attacks are meaningless to me. They just affirm your mental weakness.

        • Deerinwater

          David , between just the two of us, there only one liar here. You don’t know $hit from Shoe Polish about business. I wouldn’t be surprise if you are a quadriplegic from birth and living in your mother’s basement. Clearly you are a “shut-in” and a social misfit judging from all your hypothetical BS. You couldn’t talk your way out of parking ticket or into a women that had more tattoos then teeth britches without offering a “link”

      • DaveH

        Since you’ve had “business” experience, Deer, and you’ve had plenty of opportunity to learn from Bob Livingston and others, this should be an easy question for you.
        What is the main cause of higher general prices?

        • Deerinwater

          Why not ask a “smart question” if you ever hope to expect a “smart answer” David?

      • DaveH

        Didn’t figure you’d be able to answer, Deer. I’ll bet that 70% of the regular readers would know the answer.

      • Deerinwater

        I’ve never bought a general David, never been in the market for one. I don’t know what the market would bear for a good general.

        Like I offered you, stupid questions will get you stupid answers.

        Smart questions will best offer you smarter answers.

        And then too, Answers are a dime a dozen David, The right question is what we are all looking for, that question not yet asked, not yet conceived.

        For you suggest that any answer to your poorly worded question would offer you some insights to make a judgement about my business acumen tells me every grown man here we are attempt to discuss matters with a child that has a limited view of the world.

        You are an Academian David, you’ve proved it again and again countless times. You regurgitate information you have elected to accept because it “sounded right” and made some sense to you. You have no practical experience in the “application” in the things you speak of and are attempting so hard to sell to the rest of us. I suppose you have a lot of time on your hands to read and ponder.

        I don’t blame you for not believing in God David, it’s hard to do sometimes. Has life been hard for you? Unfair? ~ I suspect that it has.

        But David, when I need such a person as yourself, I’ll look you up.

    Facts are stubborn things. So, too, apparently, are the minds of certain individuals. These individuals usually, but not always, tend to lean to the left. This is so because in order to be an individual who believes in the power and glory of Big Government as one’s savior, it requires a mind so obstinate that facts simply cannot penetrate it. When facts
    attempt to enter a liberal’s mind it is the proverbial unmovable object (the liberal mind)
    meeting the equally proverbial unstoppable force (the facts).

    The whole scam the President is perpetrating is so heinous that it is nothing short of slander. While it is true that many rich people pay 15% on Long Term Capital Gains on
    the profits from their investments, the dirty little secret is that it is the same rate everyone pays on such things. You, me, Mitt Romney, Warren Buffett, even President Obama himself all pay the rate. Now, if you do not have investments and have to live off of income earned at a job while people like Mitt Romney do not, it still does not mean that they are paying a lower rate than you on the same type of income. My suggestion is that if you want to pay Romney’s tax rate then invest your money and live off of it. What? You cannot do that? Hey not my problem. And it is not Mitt Romney’s problem either.

    See, I am not so fortunate as to be able to put my money into investments and live off the proceeds. But do you hear me bitching about the rich paying 15% because they able to? Nope. See, I do not ##### about it because I strive to be at that level someday. I have goals beyond living hand to mouth and off biweekly paychecks or government handouts. And I work towards those goals. I have invested in myself, gotten a good education, work hard at my job so that my employer finds my contributions valuable and worthy of yearly pay increases, and I sock as much money away as I can every year. You did not do that? Well, that is your problem. Or, at least in a free society where liberty is the basis of said society, it would be. A century of slowly convincing Americans that government is their savior, however, has changed the feelings of many and brought them to the false conclusion that they are owed something and that someone else should pay for it.

    Now, with regards to income taxes there is a parallel complaint from liberals like Barack Obama. He wails that when it comes to income taxes, the rich are having it easy. Every now and then liberals like him whine that the rich pay lower rates on income than other people. The goal is to try and get the rabble up in arms against those filthy, stinking, cheating rich folks who use their millions to hire accountants to scam the system. This is also blatantly untrue, however. In fact, the Tax Foundation took the very numbers of the Internal Revenue Service itself and published the truth of the matter.

    See numbers here:http://www.taxfoundation.org/news/show/250.html

    As one can see from the government’s own numbers the percentage of income that one pays in taxes clearly declines as they earn less. On average, the top one to five percent pay 16.4%, the top five to ten percent pay 11.4%, the top ten to twenty-five percent pay 8.23%, the top twenty-five to fifty percent pay 5.58% and the bottom fifty percent pay just a measly 1.85%. In fact, the top one percent alone pay taxes at a rate of 24.01% on their income. Tell me, if you are one of these sheep that hang on President Obama’s words, when was the last time you filed your taxes and paid that sort of a rate at the end of the day?

    Are there some tax cheats out there? Sure there are. But they also fall across all income ranges. Even the very poor cheat on their taxes. The numbers are not lying here. The average rich person pays a Hell of a lot more in taxes than you do on their income. And dollar wise, they pay a Hell of lot more still. Yet the myth that the rich are not paying as much as Joe Six-Pack will no doubt continue. Heck, as long as there are liberals who seek power, there will be lies told that further their pursuit of said power.

      This is the story that American’s should be screaming about, but i still have seen nothing on the MSN about this true tragedy!

      Updated 04/17/2012 at 10:20 p.m. ET: A newborn abducted in the parking lot of a pediatric clinic Tuesday has been found safe, the Houston Chronicle reported. His mother was shot dead during an altercation with a woman who then snatched the child and drove off with him.
      Police have detained a person of interest.
      The mother, Kala Marie Golden, 28, of Spring, Tex., had taken her 3-day-old son, Keegan Schuchardt to the clinic for a checkup, authorities told the Chronicle.
      The Chronicle reported that Golden was getting into her red pickup truck when she and another woman, wearing a gray sweatshirt and jeans, started to argue. The woman then pulled a gun and repeatedly shot Golden, who cried out, “My baby, my baby.”
      The shooter placed the baby in her car as Golden lurched forward, trying to grab back her child. The shooter was described as thin, in her late 20s or early 30s, African American and with gold-colored hair.

      A man was in the passenger’s seat, witnesses told reporters.
      The car, a light green or sky blue Lexus with blood stains, knocked down Golden as it drove off, the Associated Press reported. Golden was transported to a hospital where she died of her wounds, the Chronicle reported.
      Baby Keegan, who is white with brown hair, wore a green-and-white onesie with the word, “handsome,” the AP reported.
      Just like the “Knoxsville Horror” these hideous crime go unreported yet a self defense crime becomes world news.

      How sick have we allowed America to become?

      Easy to tell you are a “liberal”-you realize “liberalism” has been diagnosed as a mental disorder. Why don’t you just move to some liberal, socialist country – -you’ll be much happier there!

      • Deerinwater

        Hmm? Every Republican family I’ve ever got to know well seem to have a high level of dysfunction that overrode rational thinking. I’m inclined to believe that it’s a universal characteristic of the GOP family. They seem to feel the need to hide a lot of personal things, cover-up while offering you pretense that fails to reflect the truth as they conceal unflattering times and events in their lives. Little things like marriage dated, birth dated hiding what child is who’s to much larger things.

        For the lack of a better word, I’d think that such behavior is a strong indicator of a mental disorder unique unto it’s self. An overfed self ego willing to override Judas Prudence for the slightest hint of a tarnish halo. The ‘self righteousness’ self serving and thicker then syrup.

        For such people to judge other’s, is the center core of their dysfunctional behavior, as they were born “to Judge” and feel required to past judgement much like a herd dog feels inclined to herd sheep.

        So put that in your pipe and smoke it June Gagnon.

        June, these guys are not Liberals, I wish they were, Liberals share the same goals as Conservatives, ( The betterment of America), they simply have different ideas of how to accomplish this. Many of these ideas, in the past have been very good and productive.
        What we are forced to deal with today are Progressives! They don’t share the same goals! They, instead seek to ” Transform ” America into a Nation whos society is patterened after the fashion of men like Thomas More, Thomas Hobbs or Karl Marx!
        They cannot be reasoned with and any attempts to compromise with them is viewed as a weakness and heavely exploited. They cannot be worked with and must be soundly defeated!

        Ted, you said a mouthful, and all of it true. In particular to Thomas Moore.

        Thomas More , known by Catholics as Saint Thomas More since 1935, was an English lawyer, social philosopher, author, statesman, and noted Renaissance humanist. He was an important Councillor to Henry VIII of England and was Lord Chancellor from October 1529 to 16 May 1532. He is commemorated by the Church of England as a “Reformation martyr”. He was an opponent of the Protestant Reformation and in particular of Martin Luther and William Tyndale.

        More coined the word “utopia” – a name he gave to the ideal and imaginary island nation, the political system of which he described in Utopia published in 1516. He opposed the King’s separation from the Catholic Church and refused to accept the King as Supreme
        Head of the Church of England, a title which had been given by parliament through the Act of Supremacy of 1534. He was imprisoned in 1534 for his refusal to take the oath required by the First Succession Act, because the act disparaged papal power and Henry’s marriage to Catherine of Aragon. In 1535, he was tried for treason, convicted on perjured testimony and beheaded.

        The most notorious post-9/11 legislation is the PATRIOT act. Some researchers suspect that at least some of this massive document was written prior to 9/11, seeing as it was amazingly presented by Bush only 11 days after 9/11.

        Guess who the chief architect of the PATRIOT act was? Viet Dinh, a law professor at the Jesuit Georgetown University.

        Viet D. Dinh (Vietnamese: Đinh Đồng Phụng Việt; born February 22, 1968) is a lawyer and a conservative legal scholar who served as an Assistant Attorney General of the United States from 2001 to 2003, under the presidency of George W. Bush.

        Born in Saigon, in the former South Vietnam, he was the chief architect of the USA PATRIOT Act and is a member of the Board of Directors of News Corporation.

        He and his family emigrated in 1978 to the United States due to the communist reunification of Vietnam. They initially settled in Portland, Oregon, but moved to Fullerton, California, two years later.

        Dinh graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University in 1990 with an A.B. in Government and Economics. While at Harvard, he was a member of the Phoenix S.K. Club.

        Hmmm, an irrational thinker judging other peoples’ rationality. What a joke.
        Are you hitting the bottle, Deer? I would hate to think the comments you are making come from a sober person.

        • Deerinwater

          It’s not a very flattering thought to consider your own dysfunction is it David, much easier to attack the messenger with wild claim and attempt to gain some personal satisfaction.

          You are a dysfunctional person David and you are forever attempting to elevate yourself at the expense of other.

    Obama: Three Video’s His Lawyers Are Trying To Get Taken Down Right Now !

    If President Obama were to stumble and fall in a political scandal, such as the growing mess surrounding the Secret Service and prostitutes in Cartagena at the Summit of the Americas, conventional political wisdom is that it would be Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, not Vice President Joe Biden, who would benefit and become the standard bearer for the Democratic Party in the upcoming presidential election.

    With at least one fired Secret Service agent now planning to sue the government over his dismissal, “Hookergate” will not go away any time soon.

    It is no secret that the personal chemistry between Mrs. Clinton and Obama is icy.

    The secret visit of Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman to Cartagena on January 29 and Bogota on January 30 to prepare for Obama’s attendance at the Summit of the Americas has Latin American policy observers puzzled.

    The trip by Sherman was shrouded in mystery. Sherman, a former aide to Senator Barbara Mikulski and director of EMILY’s List, met with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, Foreign Minister Maria Angela Holguin, and Defense Minister Juan Carlos Pinzon.

    No media access was permitted during Sherman’s meetings with the Colombian officials, which was seen as strange and rather unprecedented by the Colombian media.

    Sherman was praised by the Zionist Organization of America for her strident stance against Palestinian statehood. The organization described Palestine as a “terrorist beggar” state. As a result of blistering comments made by Mrs. Clinton and U.S. ambassador to Colombia Michael McKinley to Colombian government officials over Santos’s stance of drug legalization and his apology to Cuban President Raul Castro, Colombian officials were in no mood to invoke protocol and cover up the scandal involving the Secret Service and U.S. military personnel in the hooker scandal. As a result, the scandal hit the media with full force.

    After the Secret Service scandal began leaking to the media, Mrs. Clinton decided to attend a birthday celebration for Roberta Jacobson, Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs, who, along with Sherman, is pro-Israeli, at Cartagena’s Club Havana.

    Mrs. Clinton was photographed drinking beers and dancing, surrounded by female members of her staff. Although there are significant problems with U.S.-Latin American relations, Jacobson’s highest priorities are freeing imprisoned Alan Gross from a Cuban jail and leaning on Argentina’s government to curb anti-Semitism in the country. Gross, a U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) contractor who is Jewish, was convicted of espionage by the Cuban government.

    Questions are also being asked about why Clinton and Jacobson chose to have their party at a Cuban-themed club after both had lambasted Santos for his pre-Summit trip to Havana to apologize to Castro for not being invited to the Summit.

    The timing of Mrs. Clinton’s partying at a night club as news of the Secret Service scandal began breaking had a number of observers scratching their heads. It is significant that President George W. Bush’s Press Secretary Ari Fleischer, another committed supporter of Israel, was one of the few to come to Clinton’s defense, stating, “She only had a beer.”

    WMR previously reported that the Secret Service scandal in Cartagena was part of a covert operation by Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to discredit Obama and lay the groundwork for a November presidential victory by Netanyahu’s former business colleague and friend Mitt Romney.

    The secret trip of Sherman to Colombia in January and the ill-advised night clubbing by Mrs. Clinton and her team after news of the Secret Service scandal broke has political observers wondering whether Team Clinton is in on the Netanyahu hit job on Obama.

      You are dreaming JAY! Surly you’ve got something more important and better to do with your time.

      HOOKER GATE? This event does not reflect on the President anymore then it does you or I. A presidential security team was in place when he arrived and be there when he leaves.

      The down side is that such a security team is held in the highest regard and entrusted with the safety of VIP’s to the detail, by the heartbeat. Like the Honor Guard in place for the “unknown soldier” anything less then perfection is not acceptable.

      The President is not in charge of this, never has been, if anything, they are in change of the President in matters of security.

      Why try to make this into something bigger then it is? You are not going to damage Obama or his administration with it regardless how you spin it.

        Yesterday Barack Obama addressed the Summit of the Americas in Colombia and spoke about the conflict between the United Kingdom and Argentina over the Falklands. Obama seemed to tilt toward Argentina by calling the islands the “Malvinas” rather than the Falklands, which Argentina insists is their proper name.

        Only Obama didn’t say Malvinas, he said Maldives–an entirely different group of islands located thousands of miles from the Falklands in the Indian Ocean:

        So with one word, Obama both offended the British and made himself a laughingstock with the Latin Americans. Here in the U.S., we are used to such embarrassing errors by our president, but the international press hasn’t quite caught up.

        My complaint, specifically, is about this account of Obama’s gaffe in the Telegraph, not a particularly left-wing paper by British standards. The Telegraph’s article is headlined “Barack Obama makes Falklands gaffe by calling Malvinas the Maldives.” It begins:

        Barack Obama made an uncharacteristic error, more akin to those of his predecessor George W Bush, by referring to the Falkland Islands as the Maldives.

        Really? When did Mr. Bush ever display such geographic ignorance? It is Obama, not Bush, who is prone to putting his foot in his mouth in a matter that causes diplomatic embarrassment.

        Can we finally, after well over three years, leave his predecessor out of it and let Obama own his many gaffes and blunders?

        • Deerinwater

          Here is the hard news from that meeting Jay, while still about personal ‘feelings” and “perception” on a much higher caliber then you preoccupation with “Obama’s transgressions”. I don’t know where you get your drivel, some far right-wing blog if I were to guess.

          4/16/2012 6:12 AM ET
          (RTTNews) – A summit of the heads of American States ended in the Colombian resort city of Cartagena on a frosty note on Sunday, mainly over differences in inviting Cuba to the next Summit of the Americas planned to be held in Panama in 2015 and the issue of control of the disputed Falkland Islands.

          Cuba was expelled from the Organization of American States (OAS), which organizes the Summit of the Americas, some 50 years ago. Nevertheless, most Latin American States demanded during Sunday’s summit that Havana be invited for the next Summit, evoking stiff objections from the U.S. and Canada.

          Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa had stayed away from Sunday’s summit to protest against Cuba’s continued OAS expulsion. In an effort to address objections from most Latin American countries as well as Caribbean nations over the issue, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos had put the issue on the Summit’s agenda.

          However, the proposal to allow Cuba’s return to the OAS was met with fierce objections from the United States and Canada, with U.S. President Barack Obama saying that Havana “has not yet moved to democracy, has not yet observed basic human rights.”

        The “hooker gate” is just trickle down corruption that stems from the most corrupt, immoral, deceitful, dishonest, disgusting, anti-American, anti-God Government elected employees that America has ever witnessed. You all have had a hand in trusting the MSM and getting these deceivers elected.

        I wonder why anyone would be surprized by this type of Obama gaffe, after all there was no teleprompter available there and we are only too aware of how that turns out, after all he was only able to visit 57 States!
        I’m not sure why you kept refering to peoples connection with Israel, but some understanding of Israels resistance to a Palestinian state might be gained by reviewing an interview last week with Moussa Abu Marzouk , the Hamas second in command in Gaza. He stated that Hamas would view the formation of a Palestinain State on the West Bank as a first step in the elimination of Israel!

      • Deerinwater

        And you are void of anything right? ~ great handle for you.

        MSM is just a media outlet, selling soap just like all the others. They all want you to buy ‘their brand” Deception is not the exception but the norm. ~ This is not “news”! Oh! and there is no tooth fairy either. Your mom & dad was sneaking in after you feel asleep and replacing your tooth with a token! You can trust me on this.

        deer says: The down side is that such a security team is held in the highest regard and entrusted with the safety of VIP’s to the detail, by the heartbeat. Like the Honor Guard in place for the “unknown soldier” anything less then perfection is not acceptable.

        The President is not in charge of this, never has been, if anything, they are in change of
        the President in matters of security.

        Oh, the irony: On Friday, April 13, on his way to the Summit of the Americas in Cartagena, Colombia, President Obama stopped at the Port of Tampa to give a speech
        at the Hooker’s Point Security Operations Center.

        As the president spoke at Hooker’s Point, hookergate — a scandal involving the President’s Secret Service advance team — was erupting in Cartagena.

        According to press reports, the day before the president arrived in Colombia, 11 Secret Service agents and at least ten military personnel were sent home for partying with prostitutes at a Cartagena hotel on Wednesday night.

        The Secret Service personnel are now on administrative leave and they’ve had their security clearances revoked as the investigation continues, the agency announced.

        In his speech at the Hooker’s Point Operations Center (sometimes spelled Hookers), President Obama discussed the benefits of trade with Latin America.

        His first comments on the Secret Service hooker scandal came two days later, on April 15, at a joint news conference with the president of Colombia.

        Obama told reporters that “what happened here in Colombia” is being investigated by the Secret Service:

        “I expect that investigation to be thorough and I expect it to be rigorous,” the president said. “If it turns out that some of the allegations that have been made in the press are confirmed, then of course I’ll be angry — because my attitude with respect to the Secret Service personnel is no different than what I expect out of my delegation that’s sitting here. We’re representing the people of the United States. And when we travel to another country, I expect us to observe the highest standards because we’re not just representing ourselves, we’re here on behalf of our people. And that means that we conduct ourselves with the utmost dignity and probity. And obviously what’s been reported doesn’t match up with those standards.

        But again, I think I’ll wait until the full investigation is completed before I pass final judgment,” he added.

        Yeah, sure you will, Mr. President. And while you’re doing that, Mr. President, i’m sure you’ll continue doing the stellar job of suppressing the present on-going investigation into your past, which is beginning to prove, you are nothing but a fraud!

        • Deerinwater

          “Mr. President. And while you’re doing that, Mr. President, i’m sure you’ll continue doing the stellar job of suppressing the present on-going investigation into your past, which is beginning to prove, you are nothing but a fraud!”

          Jay? Step away from the keyboard, go get yourself that third cup of coffee, go outside and take a deep breath. Drink you coffee and think of the wonderful day at hand and what you would really like to achieve today. Something that would make you feel good, clean up a mess, or trim back some bushes. Call an old friend, go visit the sick, go wash you car ~ anything!

          Myself, I’m taking my darling to the matinee at 12:45 to see “the hunger games” , we both have read the first two of the three book saga and are pretty excited about the movie. This evening, she promises me fried chicken with all the fixing, Arkansas style.

          My point Jay, is that everyone needs a ‘life”. All this negative crap that you are drowning in, is not good for anybody.

          The use of the word “investigation” used in you clip was specific in scope. You must learn to focus and stay inside the framework of the discussion and not allow your mind to ramble so. This behavior that you are displaying is associated with advanced neuroses while coming across a being feeble minded.

          I remember when you were none of those things. It’s okay that you don’t like Obama, but don’t allow this hate to consume you. You have ceased to get much done here.

But as for you, feel free to distract yourself into a mindless stupor; courtesy of Hollywood; and the most pathetic part of it being; you are more than happy to pay for it.

      • http://gravatar.com/hattles JeffH

        Jay, as usual :)

        I’m really surprised not much attention has been paid to the admission by Obama’s “birther” attorney that the Obama certificate of live birth posted on the White House website is a fraudulant COB. Of course you’re not hearing much, if anything, about it in the media.

        Obama’s lawyer, Alexandra Hill, admitted that the image of Obama’s birth certificate was a forgery and made the absurd claim that, therefore, it cannot be used as evidence to confirm his lack of natural born citizenship status. Therefore, she argued, it is “irrelevant to his placement on the ballot”.

        Hill went on to contort reasoning by implying that Obama needs only invoke his political popularity, not legal qualifications, in order to be a candidate.

        TDP Editor, Penbrook Johannson, “Obama’s eligibility is a separate matter than the charges of forgery and fraud. Of course, we have evidence that he is not eligible. But, evidence of forgery by as yet unidentified counterfeiters working on behalf of Obama is not what legally excludes Obama from appearing on a ballot, by itself, until some authority is willing to consider this as evidence of forgery on its merit as an indication of actual ineligibility in a court of legal authority. Until some court of competent jurisdiction is willing to hear evidence of forgery and fraud, you can’t legally punish a political candidate for that crime which has not been proven that they committed. However, since Obama is not eligible because of a lack of authenticated evidence to the contrary, he could be held off the ballot for that reason.”

        According to Johannson, there is an overwhelming level of moral certainty that Obama is a usurper, but until a court with jurisdiction considers this case, Obama’s status as a legitimate president is in limbo.

        “He does not exist as a president except in the imagination of those who blindly support him. Whereas he is politically desired by a transient consensus, his legality is unresolved until a responsible court makes a determination. This is the essence of our crisis. Our nation exists in a state of non-authorized identity. Obama is just some guy calling himself a president and living in the White House without the confirmative authority to do so.”

        There is no reason whatsoever to include a scene that is boring or pointless. The most basic rule in writing is to include what is necessary to the story and nothing else.

        In short(something you’re devoid of), you’re full of yourself deer bob.

        • Deerinwater

          jeff say; “The most basic rule in writing is to include what is necessary to the story and nothing else. In short(something you’re devoid of), you’re full of yourself deer bob.”

          Hmm? well actually no Jeff, that is not the most basic rule to good writing at all. The most basic rule to good writing is deciding who your audience is and write to them. You want to reach out and grab them and make them “feel” something. This I have done with you or would find me easy to just simply ignore.

          I confess, I went to night school for this, ~ but that does not interfere with me writing during the day. Evidently you missed this class all together as you offer me flawed correction to English composition and creative writing.

          There are many wonderful passions to writing, for this particular composition, you are my targeted audience and I write to expose your fallacies for what they are. I would never in my wildest dreams expect you to enjoy it or think of me as your friend.

          Your criticism alone is testimony I have been effective. For those of you that hate me, there are those that like me. However, this is not Romance 101 but political commentary and I’m in your camp, kicking your sand castle down, bringing the battle to you, trying as hard as I know how to make you a better adversary and offer up a solid argument without having to plagiarize yourself and resort to copy & paste, borrowing words and ideas from more gifted minds, basically stealing someone’s thoughts while having few of your own.

          Just having a belly full of “feel bad & hate” won’t get the job done JEFFH. JeffH accept the fact, you are just a part of a lynch mob with a single purpose in mind. Anyone found resisting this purpose, you would object too. The more I resist, the more you object.

          While you are my primary target audience my appeal is to the more rational minds among you. In so doing, you serve me well Jeff and I thank you for that.

      • DaveH

        What you have been “effective” about, Deer, is showing the PL audience that you have nothing to offer but adolescent manipulative tactics. You have fully revealed your lack of logic, facts, compassion, and social skills in the last couple of days. But then what else can we expect from Liberals who are used to plying their manipulative trade in person on people unwilling to get down in the mud with them and put up with their foul mental abuse?
        Telling your lies and conjecture to people in person, where usually there is no opportunity for research, is a whole lot different than putting your BS down in writing where anybody can look up the facts and know you for what you really are.
        So again I say — Please keep on posting, Deer, so that all those fence straddlers to see the real character of Liberals. It can only help our cause.

        deer bob, I think I’ve pegged you right…if nothing else, just by your latest response. As sombody else has mentioned before deer bob, your comments so often reflect the idea that you are obtuse. And yes, you do blather on endlessly with meaningless drivel and yes, you’re quite full of yourself.

        People who are “full of themselves” – talk endlessly about themselves, especially their achievements and connections, and listen poorly, taking little genuine interest in other people. They may be overbearing, issuing orders and giving unsolicited advice. They tend to dominate a group at the expense of other members.

        To me, “he’s full of himself” means he(deer bob)has a big empty space inside him, which he tries to fill with a false image of himself.

        He’s no different than the other liberals on here. With few exceptions most of his incoherent ramblings and tall tales are laced with a heavy dose of “I and Me”…nothing a few years of AA treatment couldn’t cure.

    Just in case you didn’t see these stats:

    In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh ,
    had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior:

    “A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent
    form of government.
    A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can
    vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury.
    From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the
    most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally
    collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship.”

    “The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has
    been about 200 years.
    During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

    From bondage to spiritual faith;
    From spiritual faith to great courage;
    From courage to liberty;
    From liberty to abundance;
    From abundance to complacency;
    From complacency to apathy;
    From apathy to dependence;
    From dependence back into bondage.”
    The Obituary follows:

    Born 1776, Died 2012
    It doesn’t hurt to read this several times.

    Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul , Minnesota ,
    points out some interesting facts concerning the last Presidential election:

    Number of States won by: Obama: 19 McCain: 29
    Square miles of land won by: Obama: 580,000 McCain: 2,427,000
    Population of counties won by: Obama: 127 million McCain: 143 million
    Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Obama: 13.2 McCain: 2.1

    Professor Olson adds: “In aggregate, the map of the territory McCain won was
    mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country.

    Obama territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low income
    tenements and living off various forms of government welfare…”

    Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the
    “complacency and apathy” phase of Professor Tyler’s definition of democracy,
    with some forty percent of the nation’s population already having reached
    the “governmental dependency” phase.

    If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal
    invaders called illegal’s – and they vote – then we can say goodbye to the
    USA in fewer than five years.

    If you are in favor of this, then by all means, delete this message.

    If you are not, then pass this along to help everyone realize just how much is at
    stake, knowing that apathy is the greatest danger to our freedom..

    This is truly scary!
    Of course we are not a democracy, we are a Constitutional Republic .
    Someone should point this out to Obama.
    Of course we know he and too many others pay little attention to The Constitution.
    There couldn’t be more at stake than on Nov 6, 2012.

    If you are as concerned as I am please pass this along.

      Good theory, John, but it is disputed that Alexander Fraser Tytler ever said such a thing. See here:
      http://www.lewrockwell.com/north/north484.html

      It certainly does seem to be the natural order of things though. As a society becomes more affluent and shares the wealth, it is just natural for the receivers of that shared wealth to become like spoiled children and start demanding more — even to the point of killing the Golden Goose.
      Unfortunately, I have seen that in my own family as my parents died and left us with a modest estate. People get crazy when they sniff that Free Money.

  • Ron

    The reality is that the founder of the Party of Lincoln was the greatest Redistributor-in-Chief. Goodwhite Christian slave owners were our original Job Creators, and their vast empire of Christian wealth, accumulated in trafficking in Human Commodities ( libtards call it “owning slaves”) was the single largest part of America’s GDP in 1859.

    That glorious time could’ve lasted till today, with the benefits eventually tinkling down to countless *kenyans* and their “job” competitors–poor white sharecroppers, who knew their place and weren’t “uppity”, and showed proper respect and loyalty to their masters.

    But Lincoln ruined it all, forcing Big Government intervention and destroying gods holy economic arrangement in the south–and dumped hundreds of thousands of these welfare queens out of their “jobs” ( libs called it “freeing the slaves”) and exposed them and the sharecroppers to the evils of education and book-learnin’.

    He ruined this country with his “technological revolutions” and desire for America to compete in the global modern market. The slave trade made the south powerful and wealthy(well mostly the nobility) and powerful for centuries until Lincoln ruined all that. He even poisoned the minds of the lesser and swarthy people’s by making them think they deserved the same education and opportunities reserved only for Americas Christian wealthy.

    Lincoln declared class warfare on America by suggesting that all men are created equal when clearly god designed that the lesser peoples, and of course the little women, should not rise into the station reserved for the Christian White Male.

    But god was watching, and he raised up a mighty RealAmerican SuperPatriot in John Wilkes Booth–a Ted Nugent of his time if you will–to smite the infidel by exercising his “Second Amendment Remedies” against the America-Hating, Al Qaeda-loving Lincoln (for are not all *kenyans* really Muslims? If you look deep into your hate-heart, you’ll know this to be true)–by swiftboating him in the skull at Fords Theatre.

    John Wilkes Booth took with the bullet what we lost with the ballot. (libtards, predictably, called it “assassinating the president” or “murdering the president”. Why do they hate America so much?)

    It’s why we smirk with pride when we think that we’ve created a “Party of Lincoln” that has all the values of the man that killed him–It’s the ultimate insult and we get to $h*t on this traitor’s grave!

    Never forget, in RealAmerica (the Cofederate States of America): a world of liberal ideas and book-learnin’ can never defeat a bluntwhite Christian sharecropper ready to stand up with a gun and defend our Christian Plantation Job Creators. We will burn their books and turn an entire generation back to the kind of ignorance that kept them happy and free of uppity, servile-insurrection ideas.

    We can rise up and burn America down, and replace all their liberal “ideas” with the simple fact that a good sharecropper knows their place.

    It’s time for us to rise up and take America back–all the way back to the good olde timely days of the Confederacy. We WILL win the Civil War this time!

    Chant it with me: “C-S-A! C-S-A!”

    • chuckb

      ron, i don’t comprehend your comments, sounds in one sense like you are a black muslim with a chip on your shoulder. to save time typing i’m pasting the following info, you may be interested in.

      n an 1856 letter to his wife Mary Custis Lee, Robert E. Lee called slavery “a moral and political evil.” Yet he concluded that black slaves were immeasurably better off here than in Africa, morally, socially and physically.

      The fact is large numbers of free Negroes owned black slaves; in fact, in numbers disproportionate to their representation in society at large. In 1860 only a small minority of whites owned slaves. According to the U.S. census report for that last year before the Civil War, there were nearly 27 million whites in the country. Some eight million of them lived in the slaveholding states.

      The census also determined that there were fewer than 385,000 individuals who owned slaves (1). Even if all slaveholders had been white, that would amount to only 1.4 percent of whites in the country (or 4.8 percent of southern whites owning one or more slaves).

      a large number of slaves were owned by large corporations who employed black overseers, that’s where a lot of mistreatment came from.

      i agree with you, maybe the south can rise again and this time we will set up part of the country for the likes of you and disgruntled blacks.

    • DaveH

      You have no clue what you’re talking about, Ron. Lincoln was a railroad lawyer (so much for the honest part) who barely won a three-way election, used Slavery only as a war measure to bring down the South, and openly campaigned to send the Blacks to Liberia, or any place he could to get them out of America. He jailed thousands of people whose offense was merely to oppose his attack on the South, and generally trampled the Constitution to preserve the dominance of Northern Industry over the South.
      Without his and his successors’ meddling we may well have gotten over the racial tensions long ago. When Government gives certain classes special protections, it creates resentment among the other classes, and resentful people aren’t very open to congeniality for those who they view as taking advantage of them.

    >
    > The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation.
    > I’ve made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don’t like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.
    >
    > I don’t hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America. They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama’s raw contempt for white America is transpicuous.
    >
    > I don’t like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress. I expect, no I demand, respect for the Office of President and a love of our country and her citizenry from the leader entrusted with the governance of same. President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an unparalleled love for the country and her people. The Reagans made Americans feel good about themselves and about what we could accomplish. Could you envision President Reagan instructing his Justice Department to act like jack-booted thugs?
    >
    > Presidents are politicians and all politicians are known and pretty much expected to manipulate the truth, if not outright lie, but even using that low standard, the Obamas have taken lies, dishonesty, deceit, mendacity, subterfuge and obfuscation to new depths. They are verbally abusive to the citizenry and they display an animus for civility.
    >
    > I do not like them because they both display bigotry overtly, as in the case of Harvard Professor Louis Gates, when he accused the Cambridge Police of acting stupidly, and her code speak pursuant to now being able to be proud of America. I view that statement and that mindset as an insult to those who died to provide a country where a Kenyan, his illegal alien relatives, and his alleged progeny, could come and not only live freely, but rise to the highest, most powerful, position in the world. Michelle Obama is free to hate and disparage whites, because Americans of every description paid with their blood to ensure her right to do same.
    >
    > I have a saying, that “the only reason a person hides things, is because they have something to hide.” No president in history has spent over a million dollars to keep his records and his past sealed.
    > And what the two of them have shared has been proved to be lies. He lied about when and how they met, he lied about his mother’s death and problems with insurance, Michelle lied to a crowd pursuant to nearly $500,000 bank stocks they inherited from his family. He has lied about his father’s military service, about the civil rights movement, ad nauseum. He lied to the world about the Supreme Court in a State of the Union address. He berated and publicly insulted a sitting Congressman. He has surrounded himself with the most rabidly, radical, socialist academicians today. He has fought for abortion procedures and opposed rulings that protected women and children that even Planned Parenthood did not seek to support. He is openly hostile to business and aggressively hostile to Israel. His wife treats being the First Lady as her personal American Express Black Card (arguably the most prestigious credit card in the world). I condemn them because, as people are suffering, losing their homes, their jobs, their retirements, he and his family are arrogantly showing off their life of entitlement – as he goes about creating and fomenting class warfare.
    >
    > I don’t like them, and I neither apologize nor retreat from my public condemnation of them and of his policies. We should condemn them for the disrespect they show our people, for his willful and unconstitutional actions pursuant to obeying the Constitutional parameters he is bound by, and his willful disregard for Congressional authority.
    >
    > Dislike for them has nothing to do with the color of their skin, it has everything to do with their behavior, attitudes, and policies. And I have open scorn for their playing the race card.
    >
    > It is my intention to do all within my ability to ensure their reign is one term. I could go on, but let me conclude with this. I condemn in the strongest possible terms the media for refusing to investigate them, as they did President Bush and President Clinton, and for refusing to label them for what they truly are. There is no scenario known to man whereby a white president and his wife could ignore laws, flaunt their position and lord over the people as these two are permitted out of fear for their color.
    >
    > As I wrote in a syndicated column titled “Nero In The White House” – “Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader.

  • Earl, QUEENS, NY

    Thinking back to the Alaska Senate race of the RINO Lisa Jerkowski, I just visualize the kind of paper ballot I’d love to see this November. 3 circles on top – Obama, Romney and ‘Neither of the Above’. We could all choose the third, and write in 2 lines below: Herman Cain for president and Michelle Bachmann for VP. But maybe that would be too good to be true.

    • DaveH

      Hardly. They would just continue the establishment politics that have feathered policians’ and their Crony Capitalists’ nests for the last 150 years.
      Cain was slying trying to introduce a Trojan Horse (999) into the Federal Tax System by initiating a Federal Sales Tax without getting rid of the Income Tax system. How long would it have been before, like Europe, we were stuck permanently with both a large Income Tax and a large Consumption Tax?
      How could anybody trust a former Federal Reserve Bank Chairman to do what is best for the citizens?

  • http://gravatar.com/bychoosing Jay

    I do not write unpleasant things about Barack Hussein Obama because he is a Democrat, a far-left liberal ideologue, a confirmed liar, or the sock-puppet of whatever cabal that chose him long ago to be the President.

    I write unpleasant things because he is all of these things, but also because he is the most stupid man to have ever held the office of President.

    As far back as January 2, 2010, I wrote that Obama had “an imaginary life” because there was no proof that anything he claimed in his two memoirs, written by the age of 45, was true. His resume listed “community organizer”, an amorphous term that could mean anything, as his primary occupation.

    By October 2010 the Washington Times published a commentary of mine that said “millions of Americans are beginning to ask: Is President Obama just a moron?”

    Even prior to his election, he had ensured that his entire paper trail of birth certificates, passports, college records, and other items most people can produce in under five minutes were “sealed” from public review, despite the fact that most modern presidents have had to submit their personal records, short of a colonoscopy exam, for examination. Among his first executive orders was one issued on January 21, 2009, to ensure none of these records saw the light of day.

    When he finally produced a birth certificate, forensic analysts deemed it a forgery.

    So, what really occurred on Election Day in 2008 was that a majority of voters, guided by an adoring mainstream press, elected an enigma.

    He rewarded their obsequiousness by being the first President since Grover Cleveland to not attend their annual Gridiron dinner.

    Since then, anyone paying any attention has had to conclude that Americans elected an ignoramus, based solely on his own words and actions.

    Here’s just a quick look at some of them:

    Hans Bader, a scholar with the Competitive Enterprise Institute, addressed recent examples of Obama’s ignorance when he mocked Republicans as members of the Flat Earth Society in Columbus’ day for their skepticism of his green energy policies, among which was a hearty endorsement of algae—pond scum, but Columbus’ contemporaries knew the Earth was round, but doubted he could reach Asia via the Atlantic Ocean. Bader noted that Obama “falsely attributed to Muslims the invention of printing and even falsely claimed that Morocco was the first country to recognize the United States as a new nation.”

    The problem for many Americans, mostly registered Democrats and self-identified liberals is that his gaffes are dismissed despite the evidence that his policies have proved to be huge failures. His “stimulus” program wasted billions without producing any jobs, shovel-ready or not. We still have an 8.2% unemployment rate.

    The fate of Obamacare will be decided shortly by the Supreme Court after 26 States brought suit against it as unconstitutional, but Obama, who was the editor of the Harvard Law Review and taught constitutional law, apparently has not read the document, claiming the judges are “unelected” (they are appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate) and therefore have no right to pass judgment despite Marbury v Madison that established the Court’s role of judicial oversight.

    Obama’s disdain and contempt for just about everyone except Muslims is astonishing.

    He has insulted just about every element of American society and many world leaders. In ways large and small this has been a constant element of his presidency. After gratuitously insulting doctors, bankers, and the insurance industry, he pushed hard to provide the planner of 9/11 a civil trial without all the protections afforded by the Constitution—in New York City.

    Between January and July 2009, Obama sent a bust of Winston Churchill back to the British embassy.

    He gave the Queen of England an iPod with 40 show tunes, photos of his inauguration, and two of his speeches.

    Former Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, was given a box set of 25 DVDs, all in a format that does not work in England.

    Later, eager to empty Guantanamo, he authorized the transfer of some detainees to a British protectorate, Bermuda, without consultation with the UK.

    Obama’s contempt for Catholics has long been on display before the Obamacare demand that they jettison their consciences regarding the sanctity of human life.

    His nomination of Kathleen Sebelius, a Catholic apostate, as Secretary of Health and Human Services earned her a warning from Bishop Joseph Naumann not to present herself for Holy Communion.

    His antipathy for Israel and its Prime Minister, Benyamin Netanyahu has been on display from the beginning of his term, at one point admonishing the Israelis for building new housing in their own capitol and at another suggesting they retreat to their 1967 borders, a suicidal notion that Israelis found appalling.

    At one point he said, “One thing I’m proud of is that very rarely will you hear me simplify issues.” His campaign motto was “Yes we can.”

    Early on, he sent Air Force One to do a low fly-by of New York City for a photo op, neglecting to tell anyone there and generating 9/11 flashbacks and panics.

    Then he embarked on a global trip that quickly was dubbed his “apology tour” for an America about which he could little good to cite. At one point, he actually bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia.

    We do not dip our flag to any other and no U.S. President bows to any other state leader, let alone a monarch.

    His ignorance has been on display for so long the public hardly takes notice.

    “I’ve now been in 57 states. I think one left to go,” he said during his 2008 campaign.

    He referred to “Austrian” as a language when no such language exists; Austrians speak German.

    His ignorance of economics is legendary. He referred to a “profit and earnings ratio” when the correct term is price-to-earnings (P/E).

    He still thinks that, as long as the Federal Reserve can print money out of thin air, the nation can never go broke.

    He actually believes the economy will improve if taxes are increased; something that has never before happened in the history of the nation.

    Whole books can and will be written about Obama’s ignorance and failures of judgment that Americans will have to live with for a very long time, especially as future generations try to dig out from his tripling of the national debt, the highest unemployment rates since the Great Depression, and a housing market that has yet to have rebounded.

    Add in gas prices Americans have never seen since gasoline was invented to power our cars and you have a man who is not what he claims to be and is too stupid to be the President of the United States, let along serve as a White House tourist guide.
    –Alan Caruba, 2012

    Jay: I started to read your rant, got through the second paragraph and realized you must have been in a coma during the Bush years so that was enough reading for me.Have a good one.

  • http://gravatar.com/bychoosing Jay

    Romney is not naturally conservative. The strong conservative showing in the primaries have nudged him a little to the right, and that is good. But folks have been hoping, for the sake of turning things around, that Romney isn’t just a Republican version of Barry Obama.

    But when at a fundraiser Romney talked about eliminating deductions for the rich, and creating special plans for the rich, women, and Hispanics, it makes one realize
    that identity politics and class warfare lives and breathes in Romney’s skull.

    He has bought into the liberal lies, and he’s trying to appease those that have somehow made him feel guilty about being rich.

    Conservatives don’t produce special policies. We don’t try to pander to certain groups because liberty does not work that way. Doing something special for women, the Hispanics, or “soaking the rich” to appease those out there that either feel guilty about being rich or those that are envious of the rich have done well, is divisive, and preferential for whatever group is being appeased.

    If Romney wants to eliminate deductions, do it against all Americans even-steven. If he wants to cut taxes, or raise them, do it to everyone. If you want to provide special plans, do it for everyone.

    When it comes to this “soak the rich” garbage, the liberals will jump in and say things like, “See, Doug loves the rich because he doesn’t even want his own Romney to plan to make them pay their fair share.”

    This is not the Soviet Union. Success belongs to the person who succeeded. Wealth is not limited.

    When someone becomes rich there is not someone at the bottom getting screwed. The pie can get bigger, and if you are willing to work your butt off for it, you can get a piece of that growing pie too!

    As for compensating for the tax cuts, instead of taking more taxes from the wealthy, which are the producers and the job creators, how about cutting spending instead?

    If we reduced our federal spending to constitutional requirements only, our federal spending would be about 5% of GDP, and we would be able to repeal the 16th Amendment and get rid of the income tax altogether.

    Non-profit status threats by the government would no longer censor the churches.

    The federal government’s ability to extort the States through things like withholding highway funds to get the States to do their bidding would go away.

    Direct taxation would be a thing of the past, and the States would return to their role as the funding mechanism for the services the federal government provides in regards to the union, and nothing more.

    The liberal left says we must soak the rich, but that is a communist concept.

    A progressive tax rate is the second plank of the ten planks of communism in the Communist Manifesto.

    Why would we want to hammer on the producers at the time of economic difficulties, anyway?

    Have you ever gotten a job from a poor person?

    Is it anyone other than the wealthy that produces goods and grows our economy?

    How insane is it to go after those that make our economy work?

    • Deerinwater

      “How insane is it to go after those that make our economy work?”

      Well, It’s high time they show us that they might be willing too then.

      I’ve never had this “house negro” mentality myself but it seems popular among the GOP.

      If you want something done, it’s for you to make it worth someones “effort” to do it. This is not a new concept but been around since the beginning of time.

      Where you might be rich, not so rich or poor does not change this concept of supply and demand and principals of market forces.

      It has been the Logistic of the 21 century and open markets that has altered the demand on labor markets that Americans find themselves at odds with today. Growing pains on a global scale.

      It is a complex problem and will balance it’s self out in time but not without great upheaval and human suffering. There is no quick fix.

          Who said anything about Communism? Why must there be this “either or” and no lines of separation between two “isms”? To be this one extreme or the other?

          I’ve traveled, visited, worked and lived in many countries, worked on many ships where no less then 3 languages were spoken by the crew and what I suggest applies to them all.

          All these notions of freedom and “mine” are little more than illusions that you “are” or “are not” permitted to have and offered in various degrees. But by the end of the day, it all boils down to serving somebody for some equatable trade. Just how equatable this trade might be will determine the quality of life for the average citizen. If you are to permit the wealthy and affluent to solely determine this equatable rate of trade, the average citizen will suffer great disparity.

          If you believe that just calling something a name is some kind of a cure, try spend a few years living in the Republic of Mexico like I have. While I might have enjoyed it as I lived the life of a patron, a Godfather. It was a life of entitlement by virtue of my money and influence. But in truth, the majority of the Mexican people live in the shadows and at the whims of the affluent and wealthy. This “house negro” mentality is turning our nation into little more than another Mexico.

          Is this really what you really want for North America? I hope not.

        deer says: It is a complex problem and will balance it’s self out in time but not without great upheaval and human suffering. There is no quick fix.

        A problem too Complex? Hardly!

        No quick fix? You must have been drinking your own bath-water again!

        The problem is easy to solve. How?

        If we reduced our federal spending to constitutional requirements only, our federal spending would be about 5% of GDP, and we would be able to repeal the 16th Amendment and get rid of the income tax altogether.

        Direct taxation would be a thing of the past, and the States would return to their role as the funding mechanism for the services the federal government provides in regards to the union, and nothing more.

          Well, why don’t you run for office Jay? Or as least address your elected Representative with you ideas.

          When you not running anything but your mouth, not in change of anything, accountable to no one, all problems appear “simple” .

          My father was much the same way, I never had a problem that he could tell me how to solve, but when he had a problem, things magically got more complicated.

          I’m very familiar with your personal approach to “problems” Jay.

        Who exactly am i accountable to? And who exactly, should be accountable to me? Everyone is accountable to themselves. Its called, self-accountability, self-governance, or being responsible. Naturally, when one is bereft of such, the notion that someone is accountable to/for them, raises its ugly head; hence the welfare generation, and the food-stamps program. Consider the rich, mr. deer; as they are a good example to emulate. They don’t sit around whining, and crying, or looking to governments for hand-outs. No, they get off their duffs, and get busy.

        deer says: My father was much the same way, I never had a problem that he could tell me how to solve, but when he had a problem, things magically got more complicated.

        What in the world does your dysfunctional relationship with your daddy have to do with the issue discussed? Perhaps you should be contacting Dr. Phil?

        deer says: I’m very familiar with your personal approach to “problems” Jay.

        My, personal approach? Hardly. Reducing spending, and eliminating the tax-system, or, as i like to call it; the theft-system, is a proposal that has been offered by a score of sensible, and level-headed economists.

        If, raising the debt ceiling, and raising taxes, is the magic fix, as you and your progressive, nincompoop squad believe, then our problem should have been fixed by now; as we have been implementing this approach, for how long now?

        Instead, why not try something new, something, NEVER, tried before? Reducing our spending; or at the very least, not spending more then we bring in. But ultimately, to a limited, fixed, spending ceiling; a minimum, or a low, fixed percentage of our GDP. Have we tried that yet, mr. deer; being responsible?

          Some good points Jay, we are in a big mess, the American people is being held hostage to 40 years of poor leadership on the part of all leadership and who our leadership has elected to serve. Today the business community is not leading with American interest in mind, having the ability to live anywhere in the world, why should they? Just being American is not enough anymore. ~ Leadership need to make it “enough” or let go of the idea all together.

          I believe everyone has got some blame to carry. The American people need to quite looking to God and Government for their salvation. Quite waiting for some wealthy man to “give” them a job. It might be humbling but just find a “need’ and fill it. If and when government interferes scream out like a wounded wilder beast! Market yourself. Find a Demand and Fill it.

          God help those that help themselves ~ I’d tell anyone , to rattle their hocks and get with it. Don’t sit around waiting on someone to give you permission. Do it! move!

          easy to say, hard to do ~sure, but that’s what it’s going to take. Self Starters, people that are motivated and don’t accept “can’t” for an answer.

          Somebody or something is always placing obstacles in you way. Met them, go over them, go around them but get them behind you.

    There’s one predictable thing about commies – when they get in control, peace & harmony comes like a dose of Raid in a beehive – Mau, Stalin, Pol Pot, even Castro… You’re either compliant and harmonious, or fertilizing the pea patch.

    Mayhem & raw power raised its ugly head when the lights went out in the rainbow room as JJ & ASs were about to lay hands on a white man. What do you do when that which looks white in dim light turns out to be Hispanic? Nary an opportunity ever wasted, for light is white, especially under the bus. Looks like used coalitions, like clinkers, mean nothing to racists, liars & snakes when there’s opportunity to strike.

    JJ & Al, NBC, and the general media have generated gross false information and withheld facts to create mayhem and injustice! The tough super DA has unquestionably tainted and withheld evidence to prosecute a citizen on second degree murder charges… WITHOUT A GRAND JURY INDICTMENT! The resulting frenzy puts the accused person’s life in grave danger, requiring “police protection”! DOES THE CONSTITUTION MEAN ANYTHING? Congress has an obligation to prosecute and STOP this crap… NOW!!! If a Constitution falls in a forest of termites and no one can see or hear… was it there? Did those who died to create and protect it ever live to die? When is a nation a degeneration?

    Meanwhile, The “Constitutional professor” POTUS can only say the six foot child looks like his son; AG Holder is holding his hand; AJ & AL are in the rainbow room fiddling with the light switch; Bernanke & Geitner are considering new souped up & faster presses; Nancy is trying to figure out which end to lift next, and Harry is hunting a comb. God ain’t gonna help those who won’t help themselves!

    As understand it, the candidate won’t chosen until the Republican convention and that will be decided by the delegates. What we are seeing is is how much control the media has on the American people. In the prelude to the Spanish American War, William Randoph Hurst, the newspaper magnate, sent the Painter Frederick Remington to Cuba to paint the battles. When he got there he wired back to Hurst “there are no battles”. Hurst sent the infamous reply to Remington, “You paint the battles, I’ll supply the war”.

    I’m sure many of you know there’s a war on for your minds. Forces good and bad are using the media for their own purposes. It’s up to us to figure out what we should think and not think. These words we’re hearing cannot influence our thinking until we research them out. I for one have noticed the Cobra, godless socialist, under my bed since 1964. My searches have turned up not one but a whole nest of them largely centered in the District Of Criminals, DC with their mouth pieces running the propaganda machines called media. I know good people have been praying for a miracle. Maybe the Convention will bring one in the name of Ron Paul. If not, keep your powder dry regardless who runs.

    Chip quotes the President; “The President warned that the Republicans want to “convert more of our investments in education and research and health care into tax cuts — especially for the wealthy.” Of course, no Republican anywhere has proposed any such thing — and the President knows it.”

    Here is what he said;

    “In this country, broad-based prosperity has never trickled down from the success of a wealthy few. It has always come from the success of a strong and growing middle class. That’s how a generation who went to college on the G.I. Bill, including my grandfather, helped build the most prosperous economy the world has ever known. That’s why a CEO like Henry Ford made it his mission to pay his workers enough so they could buy the cars that they made. That’s why research has shown that countries with less inequality tend to have stronger and steadier economic growth over the long run.

    And yet, for much of the last century, we have been having the same argument with folks who keep peddling some version of trickle-down economics. They keep telling us that if we’d convert more of our investments in education and research and health care into tax cuts — especially for the wealthy — our economy will grow stronger. They keep telling us that if we’d just strip away more regulations, and let businesses pollute more and treat workers and consumers with impunity, that somehow we’d all be better off.”

    GOP leader talks against higher education cuts
    February 28, 2012 12:00 am

    By Laura Olson / Post-Gazette Harrisburg Bureau
    HARRISBURG — A top state Senate Republican is pushing back against the governor’s proposed cuts for higher education, arguing on Monday for restoring funds for Pennsylvania’s state-related colleges.

    Republican Sen. Jake Corman, who chairs the Senate Appropriations panel, expressed concerns during an education budget hearing that continued cuts will force University of Pittsburgh and Penn State, Temple and Lincoln universities to alter their missions.

    Past reductions already have positioned them as “state-barely related universities,” he said.

    “They took a huge cut last year. I think they’ve done their fair share,” said Mr. Corman, whose district includes Penn State’s flagship campus.

    The reduction came in the House’s approval of an early version of the “standings” bill, the wide-ranging package that ties up various funding and policy loose ends and typically is one of the final bills lawmakers pass before adjourning.

    Oh CHIP! not only have they proposed it, they have done it.

    Now Here is Ron Paul , he’s not a Republican, so it that sense you are correct ~ It seems that he does not like some parts of the Constitution and want to change some things. I guess that he’s an “early constitutionalist” back when things were smaller and simpler, preferring the early first copy 1786 Edition. I think Ron Paul would be a striking sight in one of those white hair wigs they use to wear, don’t you?

    “Ron Paul supports the elimination of the income tax and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). He asserts that Congress had no power to impose a direct income tax and has introduced legislation to repeal of the 16th Amendment to the Constitution, which was ratified on February 3, 1913.

    An income tax is the most degrading and totalitarian of all possible taxes. Its implementation wrongly suggests that the government owns the lives and labor of the citizens it is supposed to represent. Tellingly, “a heavy progressive or graduated income tax” is Plank #2 of the Communist Manifesto, which was written by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels and first published in 1848.”

    The video is a good ad as it got attention and we are now debating it on this forum and all thinkers might be considering the privatisation policy.

    Medicare was probably copied for use in Australia and here it offers universal cover for everyone rich and poor alike paid for by an income tax levy of about 1.5% on taxable income after tax deductable deductions so that many wealthy dont pay so much. It offers free medical if the doctor bulk bills Medicare but requires a patient pay $15- $25 if the Doctors charge patients direct. It also provides hospital cover in a public hospital many of which are operated by Catholic Orders of Nuns like St Vincents Hospitals and other begun by the various states. If it is an emergency you get service without financial questions…you just provide your Medicare Number and the hospital bills Medicare direct even though it takes Medicare about a month to pay.

    However we also have Medicare Private also owned and underwritten by the federal government which makes a profit and other private providers like BUPA who also operate in BOSTON ma area. Check via google. Private insurance covers you for hospital cover in private hospitals which give you faster and maybe better care and the chioce of your preferred doctor. But its not free as you still need to pay the premium and the gap between fees and what your insurer will pay the doctors. The system has worked reasonably well for at least the 20 years it has been in operation.

    Now Chip, I’m going to suggest either two courses of action if you want to increase the Republicans to win the Presidency

    First is to drop the debate of the topic totally, as you will be fighting a losing battle and help Obama win more votes.Why because you are wanting to take away a great freeby from the voters who voted him in last time, like it or not. Its easier to gain votes when your offering a needed service when everyone will think it is free or the rich are going to pay for it, than if you offer more austerity measures…look whats happening in Greece and France as a lesson of how voters think, no matter how uneconomic the idea might appear.

    The Second alternative is to agree to go along with the Obama Plan or even better to promote the adoption of the Australian universal scheme…as this policy will win you the most votes no matter what your republican supporters tell you. Most voters are nearing middle age and more and with medical costs in the USA being horrendous no one really wants to sell their house to live another couple years.

    I say this because the fact that most republicans are not going to support Dr Ron Paul and his correct policies for the Presidency, but rather seem to be going for Mitt Romney indicates to me that they dont want real change, just some change or no change. Mitt is a financier and has a great deal of knowledge of the workings of the federal reserve and no matter the various issues that are discussed in other posts about the way it operates, i dont expect Mitt Romney can or will do anything to curtail their activities as indeed the Federal Reserve for all its failings and ‘wrong doings’ is a vital vehicle to keeping the economy from crashing into total disaster territory. The people you have operating it are the best of the worst operators in the money markets and do have the best interests of the US economy at heart.

    The financial management of your complex economy is a vast problem and most of us political commentators and debaters here in this forum DO NOT have any of the skills and knowledge needed to keep the operations going, no matter what the Austrian School of economics teaches, Your economy cannot be unwound as quickly as us Liberterians would want our ideal economies to operate. It is impossible and Mitt Romney ..should he become President which i very much doubt…will leave the Federal Reserve to continue what it does best in secret and without divulging or telling us the truth about what is really going on. It goes down to confidence …to keeping confidence levels at current levels for all manner of reasons, as indeed if everyone in the USA was to be so negative and so depressed about your economic future as so many in these posts are talking about…most buyers would stop buying non essentials and help to hasten your economic demise. The heard mentality is alive and well…and it is very fortunate that not every voter reads the total negativity i read here every day and the continual blaming of Obama the man himself for all your economic problems. That is not a reasonable way of debating policy improvements. Actually is a despicable act of vilification by people who have whipped themselves into a frenzy without thinking of the various issues clearly.

    I have had experience of trading in the money markets and the stock markets dealing in $millions every day in the 1970′ and 1980′s before the derivatives makets developed and crashed [never like the financial derivatives] and do believe I have a little more experience than most commentators here about banking issues and the delicate and continuing problems we are all facing in the global economy. We are all in it together believe it, it is an internation problem.

    Everybody keeps talking about keeping growth where there is every real prospect of real declines…look at the French election closely…they appear to be wanting the socialists to win thinking they wont let them go into recession..BS the very act of appointing a socialist government will send them into recession but the voters wont and cant see it. .

    Many of you other posters think that running a country like the USA is an easy task which Liberterian policies can change overnight, but alas it cant. It is a complex woven intricate economic mish mash of stupid policies and poor taxing rates inter reliable on each part….. a bit like A RUBIC CUBE , A TWISTER GAME and A KNOTTED BALL OF STRING all in one is the the best description I can think of now. Honesty and integrity are not part of the economic system because it is run by imperfect citizens and government officials and politicians on both sides who have gone along for the ride and now due to the dreaded word EGO & PERSONAL GREED on both sides, but now the EGO of the current Republicans except PAUL i might add, are not interested in trying to unwind the mess carefully. It is too great a challenge for most simple minded politicians to fathom or solve, because the members of parliament dont or cant sit down together to solve the problem honestly during an election campaign because of EGO and PERSONAL GREED of wanting to win the power to play political games with other peoples money and security.

    Forget it if you think Mitt Romney is going to be Americas saviour because he aint going to be….and unless you Republicans are really interested in Dr Pauls policies then you must support Dr Ron Paul, otherwise forget it,,,and vote for BARACK OBAMA because he is more honest than Mitt who will be hiding his real beliefs until he wins office. Mitt believes in MEDICARE and he knows it would be a vote catcher, but cant say so because you republicans wont support him with the nomination.

    We have plenty of experience with lying politicians in Australia …

    Read my lips…Julia Gillard said…there will be no Carbon Tax under the government I lead she stated before the elections…now we are getting a stupid Carbon Tax starting on July 1, by bribing the poor with increases in cash payments… A CARBON TAX …for the little industry we have in Australia to try offset the thousands of times more CARBON and POLLUTION generated by the USA & CHINA & INDIA put together WOW PROMISES ARE LIES FROM POLITICIANS…. ARE MADE TO WIN GOVERNMENT.

    Another matter I wish to raise is that most of the people commenting on these posts are already converted Republicans of one form or another, so i would suggest the debate between supporters is almost wasted effort.

    , More effort and reasoned debate should be made to convert Democrates and other uncommitted voters. Reasoned debate does not involve calling Mr Obama by derogatory names and questioning his birth location or his birth certificate on technicalities. this idea was started off by Donald Trump to gain favour and business publicity with his supporters in the south, but is a disgraceful UNCHRISTIAN technique IMO. That german sounding governerin California was born overseas too, but it is all irrellevant really and not a good debating angle which might gain more voters for the republican movement. I would also suggest that the type of hate and anger shown towards Obama will lose you votes because educated people will not want to become a joint supporter of republicans who display such illogical and hateful debating techniques.

    Whether or not you agree with me…just think a little longer at what I am saying please.

    gillysroom. barry soetoro has not presented evidence of a legal birth certificate. the documents he forwarded are fraudulent. too many people have studied them and ascertain there forgery. our constitution plainly states: to be president of the united states you must be a legal citizen. this was not started by donald trump. arnold swarzenegger was governor of california, however, he could not run for president.
    barry soetoro has been a major disappointment as president, he has indebted this nation more than all the past presidents. his supporters are mostly black and bolsheviks and illegal aliens. there is no name calling, just plain facts.
    his healthcare bill is un-readable and is more of a taxation than medical, barry could not answer questions presented to him regarding this bill nor could the speaker of the house at that time, nancy pelosi. to this day hardly anyone has attempted to read this gibberish, it is written in leagalese. so i would suggest to you, read the bill, then preach to us about how we discuss barry soetoro.
    he and his wife moochella have spent more taxpayer money on lavish vacations than any president in history, i would say he without his teleprompter is nothing more than a street con man. he has accomplished all these things in less than four years.
    if you in australia would want him, please be our guest.

    If Barack Obama loses the 2008 election, liberal hell will break loose.

    Seven weeks before the 2008 presidential election, liberals were warning America that if Barack Obama loses, it is because Americans are racist.

    Of course, that this means that Democrats (and independents) are racist, since Republicans will vote Republican regardless of the race of the Democrat, is an irony apparently lost on the Democrats making these charges.

    That an Obama loss will be due to racism is becoming as normative a liberal belief as “Bush Lied, People Died,” a belief has generated intense rage among many liberals.

    But “Obama lost because of white racism” will be even more enraging. Rage over the Iraq War has largely focused on President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney. But if Obama loses, liberal rage will focus on millions of fellow Americans and on American society. And it could become a rage the likes of which America has not seen in a long time, if ever. It will first and foremost come from within black America.

    The deep emotional connection that nearly every black American has to an Obama victory is difficult for even empathetic non-blacks to measure. A major evangelical pastor told me that even evangelical black pastors who share every conservative value with white evangelical pastors, including pro-life views on abortion, will vote for Obama.

    They feel their very dignity is on the line.

    That is why the growing chorus — already nearing unanimity — of liberal commentators and politicians ascribing an Obama loss to American racism is so dangerous.

    Andrew Sullivan of (set ital) The Atlantic: (end ital) “White racism means that Obama needs more than a small but clear lead to win.”

    Jack Cafferty of CNN: “The polls remain close. Doesn’t make sense … unless it’s race.”

    Jacob Weisberg of (set ital) Newsweek and Slate: (end ital) “The reason Obama isn’t ahead right now is … the color of his skin. … If Obama loses, our children will grow up thinking of equal opportunity as a myth.”

    Nicholas D. Kristof of (set ital) New York Times: (end ital) “Religious prejudice (against Obama) is becoming a proxy for racial prejudice.”

    Gerald W. McEntee, president of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, in a speech to union workers: “Are you going to give up your house and your job and your children’s futures because he’s black?”

    Similar comments have been made by Kansas’s Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, a Democrat, and by writers in (set ital) Time (end ital) magazine. And according to The Associated Press: “A poll conducted by The Associated Press and Yahoo News, in conjunction with Stanford University, revealed that a fairly significant percentage of Democrats and independents may not vote for Sen. Barack Obama because of his race.”

    If you read the poll, it does not in fact suggest this conclusion. The pollsters assert that any person with any negative view of black life means that the person is racist and means that he would not vote for Obama. Both conclusions are unwarranted. But “Obama will lose because of racism” is how the poll takers and the media spin it.

    Why do liberals believe that if Obama loses it will be due to white racism?

    One reason is the liberal elite’s contempt for white Americans with less education — even if they are Democrats.

    A second reason is that it is inconceivable to most liberals that an Obama loss — especially a narrow one — will be due to Obama’s liberal views or inexperience or to admiration for John McCain.

    The third reason is that the further left you go, the more insular you get. Americans on the left tend to talk only to one another; study only under left-wing teachers; and read only fellow leftists.

    That is why it is a shock to so many liberals when a Republican wins a national election — where do all these Republican voters come from?

    And that in turn explains why liberals ascribe Republican presidential victories to unfair election tactics (“Swift-boating” is the liberals’ reason for the 2004 Republican victory).

    In any fair election, Americans will see the left’s light.

    If Obama loses, it will not be deemed plausible that Americans have again rejected a liberal candidate, indeed the one with the most liberal voting record in the U.S. Senate.

    Liberals will explain an Obama defeat as another nefarious Republican victory.

    Combining contempt for many rural and middle-class white Americans with a longstanding belief in the inevitability of a Democratic victory in 2008 (after all, everyone they talk to despises the Republicans and believes Republicans have led the country to ruin), there will be only one reason Obama did not win — white racism.

    One executive at a black radio station told me when I interviewed him on my radio show at the Democratic National Convention that he could easily see riots if Obama loses a closely contested election. Interestingly, he said he thought blacks would be far more accepting of a big McCain victory.

    I pray he is wrong on the first point. But it does seem that liberals are continuing to do whatever they can to increase anger at America, or at least at “white America.”

    For 40 years, liberals have described the most open and tolerant society on earth as racist and xenophobic. If Barack Obama loses, the results of this liberal depiction of America may become frighteningly apparent.

    Sexism
    Intolerance
    Xenophobia
    Racism
    Islamophobia
    Bigotry
    Homophobia

    LIBERAL RACISM

    Liberals, who have always claimed to be the authoritative source of progressive attitudes on race, have actually become one of the centers of racist thinking in America over the last quarter century, a period of time in which postwar liberalism itself was being reconfigured by the radical Sixties worldview.

    Liberal racism began in the last years of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life, when organizations such as the Black Panther Party and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) radicalized the issue of color in America by focusing on legitimate “black rage” and the “institutional racism” they claimed was embedded in the “DNA” of American society. King was an obstacle in their path; they rejected the gains he had achieved as illusory.

    This was no mere intellectual disagreement about a strategy for improving race relations in America; it had a bitter personal component. The black radicals and their white supporters derided King as “De Lawd” and “Uncle Martin.”

    Later on, after King’s assassination, most of those who had expressed contempt for him during his lifetime would pay cynical homage to his martyrdom. But they never embraced his vision of an integrated social world.

    Rather, the program of these liberal racists, both white and black, focused on separatism and racial difference. Instead of subscribing to King’s belief in a colorblind society, they wanted government policies that were color-coded. The further America progressed from the dark days of slavery, the more they insisted that slavery was present in America’s social institutions and its personal interrelationships.

    The U.S., they asserted, was steeped in blood and guilt: it must pay for its crimes against “people of color.”

    The extent to which such views have not only entered but dominated the intellectual mainstream of America in the past three decades can be seen in the degree to which King’s notion that people should be judged by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin has become marginalized as quaint and naive. The racism in the left’s view primarily of blacks themselves, but also of whites, has been clear in the policies the left has pursued.

    Some, like the demand for reparations for slavery, have not yet prevailed. Others, like the demand for affirmative action, have become part of America’s way of doing business as a society. Although claiming to be an equitable “leveling of the playing field,” this policy has actually tilted the social landscape.

    It has nothing to do with equality of opportunity, and everything to do with establishing a regime that will produce an equality of results. It is a zero sum game in which some win because of skin color and others lose because of skin color.

    Ultimately, affirmative action has put government back into the business of playing racial favorites — even after the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the summary achievement of the civil rights movement, banned such action.

    Liberal racists believe that neutral and objective tests for college admissions are actually rigged in favor of whites. When Asians, many of them recent immigrants with little or no cultural experience, refute this notion by outscoring whites on these tests, liberal racists say that these Asians are not really a minority at all but inauthentic, imitation whites.

    Liberal racists bear a heavy burden for having helped destroy the black family and create a black underclass by their romanticization of ghetto behavior, and their insistence that blacks are victims who cannot be held responsible for what they do.

    They reject the idea that culture rather than race may help explain the disadvantages those in the black underclass face.

    It is true, as they point out, that some 40 percent of America’s black children are born poor, and that this fact affects their life chances. But it is also true that 85 percent of these poor children come from single-parent homes. It is this circumstance—studies show that children born into single-parent families are more likely to be poor, regardless of race, than children with two parents—rather than “institutional racism” that actually handicaps them. Yet in the liberal view, any policy aimed at countering illegitimacy and single parenthood among the black underclass is “blaming the victim.”

    The effects of liberal racism can be seen in the way black students taunt those among them who strive for achievement as sellouts who are “acting white.”

    Liberal racism can be seen in the unholy alliance between the Democrat Party, the National Education Association and other teachers’ unions, and black spokesmen such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, to maintain their power by opposing school choice for black children trapped in violent and failing public schools.

    Liberal racism can be seen in the way black voters are kept on the proverbial “liberal plantation” through scare tactics and attacks on “race traitors” such as Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, who have defied the party line. Liberal racism can be seen, paradoxically, most clearly in the way anyone straying from its premises is immediately branded as a “racist.”

    This is a powerful sanction that liberal racists use like a bludgeon to control the public discussion about race.

    The 2008 election was only about race for the Left. Obama’s ethnicity became one more tool in his arsenal with which to bludgeon the other side.

    Choosing the leader of the free world based on skin color is more absurd than going to your local car dealer and insisting on buying a blue car with no concern for mileage or mechanical condition.

    It’s preposterous and offensive for the media to tell us we elected Obama based exclusively on his blackness. Or more accurately, half blackness.

    What we did do is allow the Left, as represented by the mainstream press, to lead us around by the collective nose on the issue of race, elevating a non-issue to the status of the issue on which an entire election had to turn. Justifiable criticism of Obama’s policies or worrisome associations was invariably met with strident accusations of racism.

    Adolf Hitler was certainly a proponent of what we now call identity politics, a destructive process by which liberals dissect the population into groups.

    Thus, we have a gay community, an African American community, a Hispanic community, and various and sundry other labels, limited only by the liberal imagination.

    Note that liberals never talk about an American community.

    Dividing the country into artificial groups allows the liberal Left to create imaginary victims and oppressors. This is what liberals call multiculturalism.

    Barack Obama got quite a boost from these liberal fictions; by the power of liberal guilt, Obama was, by definition, the superior candidate by virtue of his race.

    Most conservatives recall Dr. Martin Luther King’s appeal to judge a man by the content of his character rather than the color of his skin. We said okay.

    It is liberals who think racial color blindness is a form of racism. In point of fact, there are so few conservative racists that liberals have had to invent pretend code words and then try to catch conservatives using them in their tireless effort to keep grievances alive. Like all tyrants, liberals govern through fear.

    It is almost farcical to note that Hitler accused other parties of being “divisive” along sectarian lines and insisted he only wanted to focus on the economy. (Jonah Goldberg, Liberal Fascism).

    Like a compulsive gambler or shopaholic, liberals will have a tough time giving up the Race Card. It’s been remarkably effective in the past; but only because we enable them to get away with it. No reasonable American wants to be thought of as a racist. It’s an allegation that packs a colossal wallop. Fortunately, it’s an accusation that is rarely credible.

    Uber liberal Obama bootlicker, Chris Matthews of MSNBC finally owned up to the left’s obsession about race when he announced that he had “forgotten” the president’s race for an entire hour during his first State of the Union speech:

    “I forgot he was black tonight for an hour. He’s gone a long way to become a leader of this country and past so much history in just a year or two. I mean it’s something we don’t even think about.

    “I was watching and I said, wait a minute, he’s an African-American guy in front of a bunch of other white people and there he is, President of the United States, and we’ve completely forgotten that tonight — completely forgotten it.”

    
Hey, Chris. Normal people never were fixated on race.

    Obama’s entire life has been devoted to fomenting racial animus. All of his mentors, from the rancid racist and surrogate father, Frank Marshall Davis, to Fan of Farrakhan, Jeremiah Wright, have been rabid, whitey despising racists.

    In his fictional “autobiography”, Obama is consumed by bigotry. He can find ersatz discrimination in nearly any situation. Even his white mother was preoccupied with race.

    Toddlers and liberals lack the capacity to modulate their behavior.

    In his latest outburst, Matthews confirms that racism belongs to the left. It’s worth noting that Democrats have always been on the wrong side of civil rights.

    The Ku Klux Klan was the creation of southern Democrats. Some of us are growing weary of being charged with racism by the party that has a former Klansman serving in the senate.

    The useful idiots on the Left rely on divide and conquer. Inciting racial antagonism
    contaminates the culture and destabilizes the country. Racial harmony provides no advantage to liberals and Misery Merchants.

    Dear Liberals,

    Please be advised that your Race Card account has been closed. This decision was based on your account history of excessive over-limit spending. Please destroy your card immediately as it will no longer be honored.

    Sincerely,
    The American People

    • Deerinwater

      Jay first and foremost, you are not a Representative of most of the American people, you have taken it on yourself to claim this title without their approval or permission.

      Second, any veiled or otherwise racist tones or tenor that are confronted and called out, repeatedly reciprocates this claim of racism from you.

      This overwhelming bias of your is getting somewhat old and worn. I would think that you might find a “new plan” of attack as you are not getting anywhere with this Nanny Nanny POO POO, Got you last! approach.

        Well what can i say, deer; if the racist shoe fits, wear it!

        Otherwise, step out of the darkness, and into the wonderful light of freedom from bondage. Why waste your life vacillating, and harbouring ill will towards your fellow americans? Ask yourself, what has all your hatred profited you? If you truly believe yourself American, then you will cease and desist from your race baiting, falsifying the truth, and being a general pain in the ass.

        But in all fairness, i am aware that you had somewhat of a turbulent childhood, and that you harbour ill will towards your daddy. But that is no reason to take it out on the american people, your country, or me, for that matter. Stand up, and be a man, for once, and cast your troublesome past to the land fill. Let it go, mr. deer. See, don’t you feel better now?One can only hope….

      • Deerinwater

        An Interesting observation about a bigot, like a man with a cheating wife, he’s the last one to know.

        That I attack your message doesn’t make me a hater. I simple don’t agree with you and see through your dysfunctional nature via the nonce and sometimes blatant overtones that could only come from a single source.

        You would ask me to come over to the dark side claiming it “light”! To be like you!

        While degrees of dysfunction is most common, dysfunction rooted is hate is not. It is you that carries such baggage and not I Sir.

  • old hillbilly

    A good case for ID theft – countless degenerate “liberal” race baiting “card holders” of all colors who hate anyone who isn’t as brain dead as they are! Race is a call to war when one race unites to suppress another! So far, Hispanics haven’t answered the black attack, and whites haven’t returned violence… which is a sign that society isn’t ready for an Arab Spring, yet. We citizens are not divided by color or genetics, yet… but the seeds of hate and chaos are being sown everywhere by a few individuals who profit by mayhem and division (Jackson & Sharpton).

    Racial conflict is obviously stirred by dividing blacks from non blacks, uniting blacks at any cost to vote for “their” candidate! The Zimmerman debacle throws truth and justice in the toilet with wildfire media lies and injustice that mock our Constitution and rule of law. The lame-stream media actually praised a prosecuting attorney who withheld key evidence from the public in order to prosecute! By inaction The USDOJ (Holder) has joined this circus… and NO ONE has been held accountable!

      You have succinctly put in a nut-shell, congratulations!

  • simian pete

    President Obama will have a Billion Dollar Plus campaign funding. Get ready for some “interesting” commercials !

    It (the video) looks like something from SNL ! I always geta good laugh watching that commercial ! HA HA !

    I wonder if it’s true that half of Medicare recipients make less than 28,000 bucks a year. That is sad. It’s to bad the US Federal government taxed them, all their life, now into the poor house. They should get their tax money back – we should be against MEdicare cuts ! Bad Republicans !!!!

    • http://gravatar.com/hattles JeffH

      simian pete, I disagree and think Obama will fall well short of the “predicted” $1 billion. Quite a few of his big corporate donors have slipped by the wayside. BUT…he will still raise more than Romney.

      Ron Paul/Andrew Napolitano 2012

      • Deerinwater

        If money alone can buy the 1st chair position is will be Romney’s to claim. I don’t entertain such a thought.

        • recce1

          Your response seems unclear. Are you saying that you think Romney and the GOP are going to raise more campaign money directly or thru advocacy groups than Mr. Obama?

          • Deerinwater

            I’m suggesting that Romney has access to more money if it’s his desire to use it. But while financing is a huge factor in any race there is still the issues, a history and a track record to be address with all this money. In that regard, Romney has dug himself a very deep hole.

            Without doubt, Romney is a bright man yet seems at a loss when developing and selling a position. Seeming perfectly willing to sell whatever the crowd shows an interest in buying in some pandering fashion. Maybe that is what some people want, a president to tell them what they want and expect to hear?

            It’s going to be interesting to watch Romney use his money to paint the image he will attempt to sell. I just don’t see how one person can command that much money!

          • recce1

            Mr. Obama’s war chest is probably 10 times that of Romney. Then he also has his own private jet. Mr. Obama likely has close to a quarter billion dollars in campaign funds. Then there’s the Chicago Mayor Daley Mob political machine.

            Go to this site about Obama’s money status; http://www.spokesman.com/stories/2012/apr/22/obama-war-chest-is-10-times-bigger-than-romneys/

      • swampfox

        as the old saying goes,
        money can buy the dog,but not the wag of it’s tail…
        obummer is toast!
        and the tea party goes marching on…yeehaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

  • Big Daddy

    What a load of BS! the Ryan Budget does just that, tax breaks for the rich and paid for by the middle class and the poor. Now the are trying to get out of the agreement they made and wnat to increase military funding paid for by the needs of the the poor to eat. And this author talks about how low can you go? How about trying to get rid of all birth control, the blunt admendment did just that but luckily was struck down. No War on Women? again all you have to do is look and its an all out war against everyone that isn’t white, male and rich? Its pathetic that some of you can be led so easily just because there is a black man as president.

  • Sondra

    Over a million brave men & women, 6,500 in the last 10 years, have given their lives for our Constitution. 40,000 now living with wounds & horrors most of us can not imagine. We must honor those heroes by demanding that the 436 temporary hired help in Washington adhere to the oath they take to support & defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign & domestic or step down. Can we all stand together & restore our constitutional republic?
    Vote for the Constitution-vote Ron Paul for president.
