State Of The Union: Guns, Economy, Immigrants

State Of The Union: Guns, Economy, Immigrants

On Feb. 12, President Barack Obama will deliver the 2013 State of the Union address. The speech is expected to focus on the economy and gun violence in America.

Just weeks after his Jan. 21 swearing in and weeks before the government reaches its next economic breaking point, the President’s speech is expected to include a call to action for lawmakers to turn around the economic situation.

Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) invited the President to make the speech in a letter sent to the White House on Friday.

“Our nation continues to face immense challenges, and the American people expect us to work together in the new year to find meaningful solutions,” Boehner wrote. “This will require a willingness to seek common ground as well as presidential leadership. For that reason, the Congress and the Nation would welcome to an opportunity to hear your plan and specific solutions for addressing America’s great challenges. Therefore it is my privilege to invite you to speak before a Joint Session of Congress on February 12, 2013 in the House Chamber of the U.S. Capitol Building.”

Following meetings last week between the Administration and gun-control and gun-rights groups, Vice President Joe Biden is slated to deliver a working plan on curbing gun violence in America to the President on Tuesday. This plan will likely also be a topic during the State of the Union speech.

Obama press secretary Jay Carney also alluded to the President’s interest in addressing immigration reform in the speech, something Obama has vowed to make a top priority in his second term.

    I wonder if john roberts will get a “special mention”?

    • alpha-lemming

      It would be the gracious thing to do….

  • rendarsmith

    They want to curb gun violence? How about stop tearing fathers away from their kids in corrupt divorce courts. That will be more effective than taking guns away. Try to get Joe Biden to wrap his fragile little mind around that.

    • Bill

      It is just like we see on Saturday Night Live. Joe Biden is focused on jelly beans

      rendarsmith, a good comment friend and I would state God said He would judge a nation for these things, destruction of the family, killing of babies and we have at least 6 million dead and not by guns, homosexuality becoming normal and raised on hight. I think America is in real deep trouble. Can’t stand the liar-in-chief so I won’t listen to his diatribe of lie’s and more lie’s, can’t stand to look at this prideful dictator a want to be Hitler.

  • Bill

    This is a diversion tactic to take our focus away from the failed economic policies. Obama got elected by the takers thay were promised freebees and now he wants you not to see that his policies for economic growth has failed. He promotes poverty over prosperity.

    Oh, yeah, I forgot, It is all Bush’s fault. Let’s promote some more ignorance and hear from our progressive posters how it was all Bush’s fault

      Did you notice, in his speech today, how (besides blaming congress for EVERYTHING) he said that (if he doesn’t get ‘his way’ on things) the Social Security and Veterans benefits checks could be late? He did NOT threaten his noodle brained ‘jury pool’ who have never paid one cent in taxes!! They will get their Welfare checks on time! If some are going to be late, they ALL should be late. If it has to be only some who get it late, it should be those who have NEVER put ANYTHING (besides the need for it) into it.

      The reason that I referred to his ghettoNes as a ‘jury pool’ is because the Muslim is a lawyer-say whatever is needed for the moment + weasel out of it later, manipulate, get them to ‘buy’ (believe) anything, ETC. I’ve heard MANY lawyers (friends + other lawyers) speak of how “incredibly dumb” juries are-can get them to believe anything. It’s all in the presentation, TRUTH/FACTS DO NOT MATTER! Our hypocritical, foreign, Muslim boy has the biggest jury pool that has EVER existed!!!

      I am SO SICK OF seeing his face and hearing his voice! Apparently, he thinks that all Americans are his ‘dumb as dinosaur dung’ (even the bacteria is fossilized) jury pool!! I’m, also, so very sick of looking up his nostrils. His pictures are all over on almost every computer page that I access with his nose SO high in the air. I take the arrow (cursor), point it up his nose, and ‘fire’. I guess computers can’t do EVERYTHING.

        I’m making this entry so I can click the ‘notify me of follow-up comments via email’ that I neglected to click when I submitted my original entry. Thanks.

    1. I would not be surprised if there is conveniently another incident to make the case for the gun grab agenda right before this speech, with more shady ties to government agencies/contractors/financial investigations as in all the others. 2. BOYCOTT the quisling stores (Walmart, Dick’s, etc.) so they feel the financial impact before this speech. Walmart’s sales number depends on the food stamp program for the bulk of it’s sales, food is their main seller, so they probably were induced to comply in that way. And remember when she was an Arkansas resident Hillary was on the board of directors, and teh chinese influence and Walmart’s rise seem to go hand in hand. 3. China wants us disarmed, they are stockpiling food and raw metals like a nation preparing for a long war, and have built ghost cities far inland for reloaction, even one in Africa. It is time to stop feeding the draghon, do not buy CHIT (crap made in China), do some bargain hunting and buy used/secondhand/antique quality stuff (like tools) or locally made. 4. Stock up now if you havn’t already done so, and plan where you can cache your supplies safely and SECURE from weather, rodents and prying eyes, under the old adage of “don’t put all your eggs in one basket.” 5. If you have a bugout location or rendezvous on private land of your own or a relative/friend, think about hiding/burying a plastic sealable barrel of long term camping or travel essentials, again buying used/discount/salvaged items or excess from your closet you wouldn’t lose much if someone else did discover it or if you never needed to dig it up yourself. I’m not selling barrels guides or anything else here, just promoting freedom and the survival of those who care about it.

    Bill, don’t know where YOU are living, but the economy IS improving in my neck of the woods. More jobs, more people hiring and planning to hire sounds like improvement to me. May not be the ten million jobs YOU want to see immediately, but things ARE coming back.

    • Bill

      You forgot to add that it is all Bush’s fault, Chester
      Chester, go out and start a business and report back how easy it was

    • alpha-lemming

      Coo’….. so, do you live in DC proper or one of th ‘burbs??

    • http://midcontent ridge runner

      chester, are you talking about the government idoit jobs numbers, the hiring is great in the fast food industry, and under water basket weaving night classes. Real jobs that require useful skills like welders, mechanics, electrictians, or any productive business sure isn’t happening. So you must be a government /Obama supporter.

    • John Woodbury

      Chester, you are so full of it, it is leaking out your ears. 75% of the “shovel ready” jobs are government jobs. For you slow RBT types, government jobs do not add “one dime” to the GNP.

      Goback and read any of the muslim trained clown’s books written withb the USA domestic terrorist Bill Ayers. If some gets away with a crimminal activity or act, it is illegal behavior, the socialists democrats have always tried to create a BS phrase, instead of calling a spade a spade. Kenndey’s dad was a cromminal brootleggers and a multi crook art business. FDR was a crook and a socialisy who beleived and liked a dictatator grip on all aspects of total control by government. Since a lot of mushy RINO’s and all socialist dems, hate to hear truths and facts about the liberal pukes, espicially the media, couldn’t tell the facts, if it was printed on their hands.

    PLEASE,, stop feeding into the globalist left’s deception of calling illegal alien invaders “immigrants.” If you call them “immigrants,” then so too were the Nazis who “immigrated” France in WW II.

    Each and every time the left makes a reference to “immigrants,” we have a duty to out that deception by immediately flagging them for it.

    I watched a few minutes of the “Public Town House Meeting” on CNN last night until I had to get away from the totally foolish responses the gun supporters kept making. No one seemed to realize how the jack*** kept maniipulating them. They kept losing their self control and sounding like fanatics who didn’t have any intelligent basis for supporting gun ownership. Rather than going on the program with proven statistics and data to prove their point, they constantly spent their time responding to his lead. The few times the gun supporters managed to make a valid point, they let the “host” take control by going to a commercial and by the time the program returned, they discussion was his again. We “the gun owners” HAVE TO MAINTAIN CONTROL of these discussions in a calm, intelligent manner or the court jesters will continue to make fools of us at every turn.
