The Obama Plan Is Working Just 'Fine'

July 5, 2012 by  

When President Barack Obama said everything is going “fine” with the private sector, what he actually meant is that everything is going according to his plan. Obama’s plan has always been to ruin the private sector. Our economy is in free fall. The private sector cannot survive four more years of Obama.

    You have taken the President’s words out of context, as you hopefully realize. If you are really a Christian, then why would you try to distort what someone says? To manipulate others into thinking as you do, obviously. What the President was doing was comparing the loss of PUBLIC sector jobs with that of the Private Sector. In case you were unaware of it, relatively speaking, as the President was doing… THE PRIVATE SECTOR IS DOING FINE!

    • FreedomFighter

      Obama is a liar, and you Cee have been drinking to much Koolaide.

        As a Navy Veteran your comments are insulting to the Military since you end with “semper fi” Calling the POTUS a liar seems to be the calling card for bigots andd racists like you, and as a worker in the private sector for a large corporation that has HUGE cash reserves, yes the private sector IS DOING FINE! Somehow the whole “drinking the kool-aid applies more to you. I’m sure a little thing like “facts” wont sway your opinion since it was predetermined before reading this slanted article anyway… Shameful you are

      • Modern Day Common Sense

        Hey Ron, speaking of “facts,” disagreeing with Obama based on difference in ideals doesn’t make anyone a racist. Actually, agreeing with him BECAUSE he’s black would make you one. I disagree with any human being who thinks he has a preordained right to determine who makes “too much” or “too little” money. And the private sector is NOT fine. When I drive through my hometown now as opposed to 4 years ago, our main street is a ghost town. My dad had a small business that employed 5 people for 30 years and within 4 years, taxes and decreased spending on advertisement due to economic crisis completely put him out of business. During the same 6 month span, all but one of the small businesses on that same street were gone, and almost none stand in their places. It’s all for rent. Before you argue an opinion, why don’t you do a little research on your own? (I know, it’s hard for liberals to admit they’re completely uneducated in unspun information.) Obama is creating a socialist economy where the states depend on the federal government, and that was NOT the intention of our forefathers. The Constitution was written to replace a confederacy, not to do away with states’ rights altogether. Furthermore, socialization of anything leads to reduced quality. Look at the grand scale socialized governments that have been tried and failed throughout the world: The European Union, Soviet Russia, North Korea, Cuba. Although it more evenly distributes wealth, it ultimately results in a reduction of EVERYONE’S standard of living by half. And that’s economic fact. Do a little research before you begin raining explosive word vomit on the world wide web.

      • Modern Day Common Sense

        OH, Ron, PS. Changing how unemployment is calculated doesn’t mean you lower your rating. “Discouraged workers” not being calculated? That’s kinda a big deal, bro. Do you know what the unemployment rate would be if we continued to calculate unemployment like people who live in reality usually do? As of February it would be at 11%. 5 million people that just don’t count? Give me a break!

      • Dennis

        Obama has spent more money on education than anyone else.
        Obama has spent more money on immigration control than anyone else.
        Obama has spent more on the military.
        Obama has spent more on alternative energy.
        Obama has spent more on the EPA.
        Obama has spent more on infrastructure.
        Obama has spent more on “jobs”.
        Obama has spent more on Police and Fire control.
        Obama has spent more on EVERYTHING than anyone else.

        Hey, wait a minute, what about all this massive deficit spending?

        Oh yea, that, thats the Republicans fault.

        LOL, you Oscumbocrats sure are braindead..

        • DaveG


      • James Curtis

        Always interesting that the attacks on Obama never have any basis in actual fact, never any credible source listed for the ridiculous allegations. They are just lies spread by the racist right, plain and simple. These allegations also never seem to make sense as to “Why” Obama would even want to accomplish these ridiculous things. There is no reason, Obama is so far from being a socialist it is ridiculous,there has never been any socialist agenda has ever been presented by him. STOP SPREADING LIES! It really makes you look desperate.

        • DaveG

          When you can’t look at the facts and see what a total failure Obama has been , I feel sorry for you. Everything he’s done has been to take this country down and turn it into the countries like Spain, Italy, and Greece. How’s that worked out for them. Boy, I can’t wait for this country to fall just as those countries are doing or have already done.

          Vote him in again, and then we’ll see if you have the guts to get back on here and admit that you were partially responsible for the failure of this country…….except for one thing:
          IT’S ALL BUSH’S FAULT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ron White says, “You just can fix stupid!!”

      • Bonzo

        All of you are shooting above the mark. You accuse Obama for everything but still fail to know the man’s motive. Get at his motive(s) and attack the motive(s). You all fail in that regard. His motive if you don’t know is to cripple America and usher in the Caliphate. THE MUSLIMS CHIEF OBJECTIVE IS TO RULE THE WORLD SOME DAY. Look at what he had been doing and still doing and you’ll see I am correct. Four more years would complete his mission. And most of you White people are the dumest creatures God ever created. You deserve what you voted for. Hope you pray ernestly that God change your stupidity and allow some sanity in NOVEMBER. Hope you don’t make that stupid mistake again in NOVEMBER. God help America.

        • DaveG

          Sorry that I didn’t mention that motive. I think you are right on!!

      • Butch

        The blatant stupidity or blindness of Obumma boot lickers is baffling and mindblowing. Our nation’s economy has NEVER looked more bleak but while Rome is burning, all the idiotic liberals are in an orchestra, playing their fiddles. WHAT EXACTLY DOES THE FRAUD-IN-CHIEF HAVE TO DO TO GET YOU TO STOP SUPPORTING HIM???? I ask that as a lifelong Democrat who will NEVER blindly support anyone. Shame on you stupid idiots that will support someone SIMPLY cuz “hes from yr party”. No doubt about it Bush Jr left thsi coiuntry oin the road to bankruptcy but Obumma was voted in to STOP the bleeding, not institute hios SOCIALIST agenda. Someone said “hes the furthest thing from socialist”. Really, idiot?? You need to grab a dictionary because it sounds like you don’t have the SLIGHTEST clue what socialist means. This POTUS is at the very LEAST a traitor and at worst a viper in our nation’s bosom. Its terrifying that the worst President in history(yes, worse than Jimmy Carter) actually has a chance to win becuase the hopelessly corrput GOP has forced a Flp Flopper on us that NO ONE wants while blackballing a TRUE patriot that actually draws from BOTH Republicans and Democrats AND Independents. I think the the GOP is intentionally throwing the election, because if Ron Paul were to be elected, he’d end the gravy train forever and the GOP doesn’t want that either. This fake paradigm of “Left vs Right” has us fighting among ourselves instead of impeaching this fraud from office. We are at 16 TRILLION in debt on the books but when everything else is factored in, we’re at almost 80 TRILLION in debt. We take it for granted that the US will survive because its alwasys been there in our lifetimes but the greatest empire in the world’s history fell because they got too big and overspent. The US is about to die a slow painful death because we’re too stupid to learn and re-elect frauds that HATE the Constitution.

        • DaveG

          I couldn’t have said it better. Bush was not perfect (unlike Obama). But, we know what we’re getting if we vote him in again. I would vote for the convict who was on the ballot against Obama in North Carolina. Maybe, he has at least a little integrity……..unlike Obama. And I don’t believer that Romney is perfect either. But, we know that we at least have a chance with Romney, and we know that if Obama gets in again………this country is toast!!! I’m not saying vote for Romney because you like him……….Vote for him because we have a 1,000,000% better chance of turning this around with him………And we have a 1,000,000% chance of TOTAL FAILURE with “God”………..oops, I’m sorry…….Obama!!!

      • RivahMitch

        Semper Fi! This ‘Nam jarhead says you’re right on!! It was a system like what the Kenyan Marxist wants here that we were rightly fighting against. I’m still willing though somewhat less able than I was 45 years ago).

        As to Ron’s comments, (i) I’m not sure which Navy he served in but my loyalty both in the Corps and today was and is to the Constitution, not the current God-king, but (ii) perhaps large corporations (especially those now run by unions and bailed out by government are doing “fine”, likewise other large corporations looking to have the taxpayers assume the costs of medical coverage for employees. However, most of the productivity and new jobs in the country come from small businesses which are Obozo’s whipping boy. Contrary to Obozos warped definition of the “middle class” it includes small business owners and entrepreneurs (rather than those who don’t pay taxes) and they’re hurting. Just drive through any community and look at the closed storefronts.

        Enough on Rons’ comment… He’s clearly not worth the effort.

      • marine72Marine72

        Ron Says -
        “as a worker in the private sector for a large corporation that has HUGE cash reserves”.

        Hey Ron Says:
        You answered your on question! Any large corporation is not spending because their only incentive is hold on to as much as possible to buffer obozo’s next rip-off, income redistribution IDEA. My question is are you a Retired Navy veteran living off your nice private sector large corporation salary and using your retirement $s for run around money.

        I can only suggest that you try ‘critical thinking’ for once. Now why would any business sit on large cash reserves when the most they can get on return is 1~2% on safe investments?

        My daughter also works for a large medical device maker who is making investment decisions now to offset the obozocare 2013 & 2014 imposition of 15% excise tax (to start) on medical devices. So what does a medical device maker due when faced with ultimate bankruptcy at the hands of the government who sets the prices, well they do the only thing that they have control of: move the production lines to another country with a lower cost of living and more favorable labor market. Out-sourcing becomes the only way to remain in business.

        Now a thinker, not possessed of intellect, would see this medical device tax as rightfully taking from those nasty multinational corporations and giving to some other more deserving souls. What I see is the cost of medical care going up and since that is not allowed then the rationed care as currently found in Britain will be the result for those same said “more deserving souls”. Now that the doctors must spend another 15+% on a patient that is under the arbitrary cost controlled national healthcare will in essence be ‘rationed’ out into the future when their “share” of the producer’s money becomes available. Nice unnamed “Death Panel” administered by an appointed crony Czar who has an incredible gold plated health plan exempt from the same ‘gold plated’ health care plans tax.

        As far as “insulting to the Military”, give it a rest. The only thing insulting is the contempt that the White-Black P-POTUS (1st P for Poser) dishes out on the Military every day. Never forget that this genetically majority white person works every day seeking to right all his perceived wrongs at the hand of the hated “White” race (his race). Must be nice to have been raised by his maternal grandparents; you know the the grandmother who was a vice president of a bank and grandfather well established in the retail industry of Hawaii.

      • moonbeam

        marine72Marine72 says: “What I see is the cost of medical care going up and since that is not allowed then the rationed care as currently found in Britain…”

        I read a report just yesterday on the BBC that the wait time is 18 weeks. Of course there was a mistake made and they’re “sorry this happened”, but some of these people waiting included cancer patients.

        While working as a travel RN, nurses from Canada told me about the universal healthcare scheme there. They said no matter how dire your need, you have to wait for treatment. Need by-pass surgery right now or else? Too bad, sux to be you. Get in line and wait. Period end of story.

        There was a TV commercial that ran here in the US about a Canadian woman with a brain tumor. She was told it would be 6-9 months before she could receive treatment. She told them “I’ll be dead by then.” This woman had to come to the US to get the brain tumor removed to save her life.

        So much for Obamacare. If this atrocity is implemented, eventually they will run out of money then the rationing begins to hold down the costs. See Canada and the UK.

        The ball is now in the peoples side of the court. If we don’t want the obamacare tax levied upon our heads, then vote him OUT! I don’t like Romney either just for the record and I hate like heck having to hold my nose to vote. On the other hand, those members of the O-koolaid coalition who can’t smell the coffee or see the forest for the trees, may you get what you so richly deserve. But don’t come crying with your lip hangin’ because when you bent over to do your “duty” things were too hard to take.

      • Palin16

        Ron and James,
        Anytime you liberals start in with the race card, I stop reading your post and immediately go on to the next. When are you going to get it through your thick, brainwashed skulls that we oppose Obama’s POLICIES, not his race? if Hillary Clinton had been elected president, we would be opposing the same policies, and she’s white!

        • DaveG

          You have to understand……when the Democrats can’t defend Obama’s screw-ups they play the race card. Last time I looked, Bill Cosby, Herman Cain, and Allan West are all black. And, everyone of them are sick and tired of blacks blaming whitey for their problems. You remember the first thing Obama said after Travon Martin was shot? “If I had a son, he’d look just like Travon.” So, who’s the racist??? Also by calling Zimmerman a “White” Latino was done to add fuel to the race card. If that “White” Latino had shot a white guy, it wouldn’t have made the news in any of Obama’s mouthpiece stations (CNN, NBC, ABC, etc.) Obama is one of the most arrogant, smug, racists on the planet………..but he tries to change the subject of all of his failures by playing the race card. And, the dummie, freeloaders believe them because their freebies keep showing up every month. The blacks haven’t figured it out, but those freebies are keeping them dependant on the Government……….That’s Obama’s plan…………and it works.


          If a white person even indicates that he will vote for a white person because of his color, we are immediately termed a racist. But let over 70% of all blacks vote for Obama……….and there’s not a racial drop of blood in any of them. Do you suspect different rules based on color????? I have plenty of black friends who have been to my home for dinner. And I know plenty of white trash that I don’t want anywhere my home. Trash is trash no matter what the color of their skin. And, the three black gentlemen I mention earlier in this e-mail, would agree with me wholeheartedly. And too many blacks will call them Uncle Toms, along with many other derogatory names because they think they are siding with “whitey”. They are simply trying to tell you that Obama is not your friend. He’s using you to controll you, and you’re falling for it……….hook………..line…….and………..sinker. And you’re too stupid to figure it out………… just keep taking those freebies and voting for that piece of scum. As long as you keep doing that, there’s no hope that you’ll ever get out of your situation!!!

          By the way, when Obama was campaigning for his first term in office, he had about 5,000 (a little bit exagerated, but not much) promises of things he was going to do when he got into office. I said then that if he could deliver on just 10% of his promises, I’d vote for him the second time. The night he was declared the winner, he said in his speech that he might not be able to turn everything around in his first term. I said right then, “He was just declared the winner, and he’s already positioning himself for a second term.” A few weeks later he was asked on Good Morning America about his promising his daughters that he would get them a dog. He smiled and said, “Oh, that was just another campaign promise.” THAT’S NOT SOMETHING YOU JOKE ABOUT AFTER MAKING A TON OF PROMISES!!! He was joking, but it showed his true color…………..LIAR!!! , He made it real easy for me to decide who to vote for after he failed on virtually every promise he made………………….anybody but that lying Obama. If the Democrats decide to put that convict out of Texas who received 40% of the vote against Obama in the North Carolina Primary………..I’d vote for the convict in a heart beat!!!!

      • Palin16

        If these liberals want to get a good look at some real racists, take a look at Jeremiah Wright, Maxine Waters and Barack Hussein Obama, who described his maternal grandmother as a “typical white person”….

        • Pritty Brains

          Yeah so? She probably was a typical white person. *laffs* I know I am a typical white person. I’m also a typical woman. A typical mother. A typical wife. A typical person.

          All typical means is, “ordinary, usual, conventional, regular…”

          You people try too hard to bring Obama down… all you’re doing is making you and your party look petty, mean spirited and so very dishonest.

      • Palin16

        OK, and if I referred to anyone as a typical black person, how would that be any different?

    • hipshotpercusion

      Troll alert!!

      • Mimi

        People NEED to work. It gives us purpose. To be handed money every month instead of a job offer is soul-crushing. If Obama is relected (God help us) this country is a third world country. Where are the men of the mind? Who is John Galt?

      • Robert Fitzgibbons

        Hey remember that Mr. Obama is 50 white and 50 black. So can we be called racist for not liking Obummer.
        He has put in the Supreme Court the lady who had his records blocked!
        Maybe before he gets to the DN convention he needs to open those records and show us his records…It is really funny that if you were really born in the USA why would you need to lock up your records.
        He is not a leader or a statesman…
        Look at how he handled the oil spill Let BP fix it
        The economy he blames Bush, EU, Greece, Spain, the Republicans
        Healthcare – o by the way Justice Roberts calls it a TAX!
        Uses American money in Lybia and not ask congress
        Fast and Furious – no documents and invokes executive priviledge
        By the way he was a part of Alcorn which is a socialist/communist organizatrion
        which helped him get elected …
        He and Bernake are trying to make the US a two class system poor very rich now he is saying he wants to help the middle class only because some of the middle class fools might buy in again and show what fools they are!
        He ordered the killing of an American citizen without due process…granted this guy was a terrorist in Yemen I think ….he is still an American and should get due process.
        Heck he should have been grabbed and brought back for trial and execution.
        What is wrong with America is that we need the death penalty, no delays etc….we have the bleeding heart liberals who are responsible for that…and costing the taxpayers billions of dollars to support people who should be executed.
        Obummer is the most divisive president ever!
        Lets get rid of him…for those of you who are diehard demos
        Check out Anita Montcrief on youtube regarding why she is no longer a democrat but a free thinking citizen.
        Just some of my 2 cents
        Hey to raise money lets create a fund that can only be used to pay down the real debt and place an extra tax on windfall profits from executives that get huge bonus and sell options, atheletes who get huge sign on bonuses, movie stars who make millions in a year, lotttery winners, winners of texas hold em tournaments etc…
        I think we could pay down the debt in short order.

    • EdinNola

      There is nothing taken out of context here. The fact is that Obama was trying to justify his increases in the public payroll. That’s a hard thing to do when the country is in a depression (which, no matter what you might think, has been caused by Obama).

      The man is a Communist – there is no point in denying what is in your face. Communism sounds great and is a real vote-getter from the illiterati, but it simply does not work in the real world when applied to governing. Do you not know anything of the histories of the Soviet Union, Cuba, North Korea, even China. All of these are countries with tremendous natural resources but Communist tyrannies. And they are failures.

      Obama is not a brilliant person. He is a man thoroughly trained by the best in the art of deceiving people. At this point he has to be regarded as pathological – his entire life is a very well guarded lie.

      Things are going just fine, if you are a Communist and look foreward to th collapse of the American economy and way of life. For the most of us, that is not a reason to rejoice.

      • sandy fulmer

        FACE IT, you Republicans have ALREADY started USA on the way to RUIN. STARTing with your Wall Street buddies, then going on to NAYSAY EVERYTHING citizens and Pres. Obama need to get this country moving!

        Since your petty goal is just to remove the sitting president, Obama, all else is a no no. How DUMB AND CRUEL CAN YOU GET! When the country slides down this slippery slope, YOU YOU YOU and NO one else are to Blame!

        JUST READ THE HISTORY OF OUR DOWNFALL SO FAR. Get your legislators to Just say YES once in a while, and USA MIGHT still have a chance.


        You Republicans are hated by 73% of the citizens. All your lying and ads won’t change that before November.

      • Ken


        You are ignorant of the facts of the matter Sandy. There hasn’t been a two-party system for many, many years….there’s only one party owned and run by huge and powerful corporations….forget the blaming game – it’s part of what they’ve had us caught up in for decades.
        Once one group get’s into office, they continue the madness of destroying our country at by dismantling our law’s, our traditions etc, to fill their secret foreign bank accounts with the unlimited amounts of cash they receive in return for their “cooperation”.

        Isn’t it amazing EdinNola, that every Progressive and even most Liberals ( if there are any left ), still believe that they can create their ” Perfect Society ” ! All this inspite of centuries of very educated men attempting to do so, with exactly the opposite results in every case!
        If men like Thomas More, Thomas Hobbs, Plato, and Karl Marx , many even today suffer under Marxism, were unable to achieve their goal, why would any reasonable person think that Obama might?
        Of course if we take Platos efforts as an example of the Progressive thought process it becomes a little more understandable. After writing his ” Republic “, he determined that it needed a little tweeking, and yet again another , and another. Finally, in frustration, he was forced to admitt that he couldn’t make it work, here comes the Progressives thought process, then insisted adamately, ” But it should work ” DUH !
        These societies are only workable in a Machine Society, Human Nature will never allow their success!

      • carrobin

        Obama has actually shrunk the “public payroll” so that there are fewer government workers now than there have been in 50 years. That’s one reason there’s still an unemployment problem–a lot of those people are still unemployed. You know, the teachers, the firemen, the cops….those folks that Romney doesn’t think matter.

        • DaveG

          There we go again. Blieve anything that comes out of his mouth and the mouths of his mouthpieces (CNN, ABC, NBC, etc) They have hired over 11,000 IRS workers to make sure we comply with his “Obama-Doesn’t-Care healthcare. And, remember, the Republicans want all of us drinking dirty water, breathing dirty air, and want to push Grandma over the cliff. Yea, “God”……….I mean Obama!!!

      • Old Henry


        You are very correct in your assessment. I posted this link much further down, but thought I would place it up here as well. It verifies much of what you have said and what others here have said many times.

        Heads we loose. Tails we loose.

        • DaveG

          But, if we don’t vote against Obama, he’ll get in for another 4 years. And that’s when you can bend over and kiss you butt goodby………because we think we know what we’re in for with another Obama presidency……….I think it will be much worse because he doesn’t have to run for office again. I think we ain’s seen nothing yet!!! We at least have a fighting chance with Romney……….VOTE!!!!

      • Hanna

        EdinNola…great points! Those who approve of Obama must also agree with bama’s mentor and best pal..Bill Ayers.Bill Ayers has stated that after communism is ushered in those Americans who refuse to accept communism will have to be killed and many others need reeducation camps.We have seen the fruits of communism for generations..gulags.starvation.degradation. The only people who have good .cars are the ruling elite while the majority live under unbearable impoverished conditions. Generations of Russians who escaped communism have shared their incredible suffering under communism.For any to want this for their families is insane

      • Old Henry


        The people you reference are local public employees, not federal, which is where Soetoro the communist foreign-national Kenyan usurper has control.

        State and local entities are having $ problems due to falling revenues which is in turn due to the national economic depression brought on by the communist.

      • cayuga 333

        Sandy,”73% of the citizens hate republicans”! Hmmmm! who won the most seats in the house in 2010? The Democratic party is dying -your thoughts are obsolete! November will bring a Republican House ,Senate ,and if we can keep the illegals from voting,a POTUS too!

        • DaveG

          don’t forget we have to get the dead people off the voting records. Something that Obama & Holder are fighting. Only people who are initiating voter fraud would not want to clean up the illegal and dead voters!!

      • Palin16

        A vote for a second Obama term is a vote to erase our Second Amendment rights.

      • Rufus

        Ken, you are absolutely right on about who’s to fault, yet these people keep mud slinging Obama while at the very same time (on another forum) the people keep mud slinging Romney.. Both are puppets.. Both can destroy this country but not on their own, they need someone with the ability to create this.. To be able to pull multiple strings, blackmail officials in power and manipulate our military forces. Neither Obama nor Romney has the brain power to achieve such power. Meanwhile the giant green toad continues to make sacrificial sheep out of these two witless runners so that the Country can split even farther apart making it a snap to complete his (their) plan with little to no pressure from “We the People”.. This ‘killer of life’ doesn’t care who gets into office because he has both them and their parties in his hip pocket. If people really want to wake up, they should join together and refuse either of these butt sniffers and keep refusing until a capable candidate is found. (yeah, know.. dream on).

        Vote. And vote Livertarian.


      Are you self-employed? Do you have employees? If you answered yes to either of these questions then you must be in the firearms or survival industry, as this idiot in the W.H. has done such an excellent job with the economy that people are spending multiple billions of dollars there. It seems intelligeint people fear the taritor who occupies the W.H. is hell bent on destroying the economy with the blessing of idiots like you who listen to him say how wonderful things are. I’ve cut back 20 of my employees to part time and I’m ready to lay many of them off permanently. I’ll take a W.A.G. and say you are a unionized factory worker or public sector servant. You and your kool-Aid drinking buddies better get your collective heads our of your collective a$$es and take a good look around at what’s really happening in the private sector. Turn off msnbc, tell Rachael Maddow to piss off, and for Heaven’s sake take responsibility for your lives for once instead of relying on the union, public dole or tax payer dollars.

      • Patriot

        You are correct, these people will not admit their progressive mistake until the economy collapses, they are waiting in a soup line, their welfare, public pensions and other governmental goodies stop. At that time these people will revolt, not against the these knuckleheads that enslaved them, but some evil capitalists. We are well on our way to our own demise from within. Upon reflection of Independence Day, almost half of the country supported the status quo of the British empire rule at that time, supporting their own demise & afraid of their own shadow. Stupid is what stupid does! It is amazing today that we still have very stupid people that cannot see they support their own ruin, I blame the educational system for this, of which, most of this system is run by government.

    • Randy131

      Which planet do you live on? The private sector has lost 8.5 jobs to every 1.5 lost by the public sector, and these are reported facts, are you not paying attention. In the federal public jobs, Obama has actually increased the number of jobs, it’s just the state and local public jobs that have been lost. Why do you make statements about facts that you are apparently completely ignorant of, are you not a Christian and know stating falsely, like Obama continues to do, the situation we’re in is LIEING. Do some investigating, even the liberal biased mainstream media has reported that out of all the jobs that have been lost by Obama, only 14.8% has been in the public sector, but if you take away the federal public sector job gains, it is highr than that for what is left in the public sector, the state and local government jobs. Know the truth before you insinuate that someone is telling a lie!

      • Ted Crawford

        In a backhand sort of way Obama does deserve the Credit(?), read blame for the lose of Public Sector jobs. The idiotic entitlement programs he created with the Stimulus, because of the fact that the States are always forced to pay a portion of them, forced the already over budget States to lay-off people in order to attempt to balance their budgets. Another of his ever present ” Unintended Consequences “. Unintended my Aunt Girts pet goat ! Cloward-Pivin !

      I feel sorry for you!!

    • DaveG

      Cee, if you think the private sector is doing fine just because that lying Obama says so, then I have some swamp land in Florida I would like to sell you!! And, Obama says it’s a great buy, so it has to be, right? I’ve been calling on independent businesses for the past 30 years all over the country. For the past 3 years, I’ve called on one (1)….that’s ONE business owner that said that they were glad Obama was voted in and were happy with the way things are going. That was over two years ago. However, in the last two years, I can’t count the number of business owners who broke into tears when they started talking about what’s happened to them in the last 3 years. And, these aren’t women breaking into tears…they are men!!!!!!! Cee, you need to get out into the private sector and talk to them. It won’t take long before you start singing a different tune………unless you still believe in the tooth fairy, like Mark. You believe the crap that Obama’s mouth pieces (CNN, NBC, ABC, and the smart actors and actresses in Hollywood who are in Obama’s back pocket……..and I don’t know why) put out. Obama has been a total failure on virtually everything that he’s tried since he took office. Answer these questions: 1. Do you think he’s stupid? 2. Do you think he’s unlucky? 3. Do you think he’s uninformed? I think the answer to all of these is an absolute NO!!!! So, what else could it be? The only thing I can think of is it is INTENSIONAL!!! He’s doing from the inside what his Muslim buddies haven’t been able to do from the outside……..and that is DESTROYING THIS COUNTRY…….and he’s doing a great job of that!!!!

      Another question: Did you see the recent video of the CEO of GM addressing the stockholders of GM? If you didn’t, you should look it up! He stated that 70% pf GM’s production is now coming out of China. Wow!!!! He spent billions of tax payer dollars to help a company that has over 70% of their production now coming from China!!! And in the same bailout, he handed the keys to Chrysler to the Auto Union (Payback for all of those good union people for voting for him). Good move, right? How come the CEO of General Electric, after being named Jobs Czar, moved GE to China? Maybe you can answer that one! How come he refuses to issue oil drilling permits that would definitely creat millions of jobs and get us on the way to our oil independence?(North Dakota is like Alaska was back when we were building the pipeline…..can’t find a motel room, restrauants are packed, business is booming!!! The unemployment rate is down to 3%. All the while he has promised Venenzula several billion dollars to help them drill offshore off the coast of Venenzula……….of which not one drop of oil will see the light of day in the U.S. They hate us, but will take our money. Heck, Obama has plenty of our money!!! Where is it??? He’s loaning billions of dollars to CHINA (the country that we owe the most money to) to help them with their GREEN AGENDA!!!! The Chinese are laughing their butts off at this one!!!! While most every green company that he “invests” taxpayers’ money in, continues to go belly-up!! He has no friggin’ right to spend our money on anything like that………it needs to be run through congress. Oh, by the way, the first two years he was in office, the Democrats controlled both houses of congress. He got everything he asked for in those 2 years because the Republicans couldn’t stop anything. But EVERY ONE OF HIS FAILURES IS BECAUSE OF THAT “WILEY, WASCAL BUSH!!! How many more screw-ups will it take before you (and others like you) finally figure it out?? He’s a total screw-up!!When will he stand up and take responsibility for his failures. Now, I have the answer to that one…………NEVER!! NEVER!! NEVER!!

      If you (and others like you who blindly believe anything that comes out of his mouth) vote him in again, you better be ready for the “big one.” He won’t have trying to win another term hanging over his head. He’ll be home free. I’ll guarantee that “YOU AIN’T SEEN NOTHING YET!!!” He has things planned that he won’t even bring up yet, because if he did, he’s probably be taken off the Democratic ballot in favor of that convict in Texas who got 40% of the votes in North Carolina……….heck, I’d vote for the guy in the pen!!

      Almost everything he’s done since he took office has been unconstiutional. He has no respect for the Constitution, our men and women in service, private religion (except for Muslim), private business, or anything else that this country has been successful in for the past 230 years. Wayne Allyn Root hit it dead center when he did this video!!!

      IIf he gets in a 2nd term, God help us all……….those small business owners already have a taste of things to come. And if he does, you (and others like you who refuse to see the handwriting on the wall (heck, Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder would have no trouble seeing this one coming) can explain to your children and grand children that you were insturmental in allowing Obama and his Chicago, thug political thinking destroy this country.

        Great response, DaveG! I agree with you completely. I just returned from a trip through the Great Plains states, and saw a large number of for sale signs for private property. And from what the locals said, this has happened just since Obama was elected. Evidence for the intentional destruction of our country is EVERYWHERE, from the massive numbers of executive orders and reg’s through the EPA, the Czars, unconstitutional legislation, to his grossly corrupt practices with his cronies.
        Unfortunately, some liberals will refuse to believe that Obama is behind it, and will vote him into a second term. This election result in either the life or the death of our beloved Republic. We MUST get this traitor out of office, along with all of the other traitors in his administration.

        • http://yahoo Gail

    • Liberty Lover

      Obama lives by the lie. He is an acolyte of Saul Alinsky who believes the end justifies the means and a serviceable lie is preferable to an awkward truth. It happens that the Quran teaches the same thing, but of course we all know Obama is a Christian, right? America might have been ready to have its first affirmative-action President in history, but not if he’d been openly muslim. The man will say whatever he thinks will bring him power, and, as Mr. Root so eloquently states, the power he craves is the power to destroy a country so historically out of tune with “the dreams of his Marxist father(s).”

    • Ted

      WAR is a day late and a dollar short with this blog. Hundreds of people in the right wing blogosphere have played “gotcha” with the President’s remarks. Which is rather silly since the context for the remarks is readily available.

      • DaveG

        So, you still think that all of Obama’s screw-ups are Bush’s fault? I’m assuming that after this country goes toatlly under, that you and Obama, will still be blaming Bush!! I’d bet and give odds that you are still blaming your first grade teacher for all of your screw-ups because she looked at you in a bad way, and it screwed up your brain. But, as Ron White always says, “You just can’t fix stupid.”

      you are not the least impressive as you only repeat obmamas words and fail to understand his intent. or realise his lies.


      Consider this: Obama claims to be a Christian. In 1991 a brochure was produced that claimed Obama was born in Kenya, in order to claim he was a foreign exchange student. Now he claims he was born in Hawaii. With either scenario, he is guilty of fraud, and as a Christian, he was lying on one of these occasions.

      • tlgeer

        Obama has never said that he was born anywhere other than Hawaii, and he has the documentation to prove that he was.

      As far as race, Oblamer has set race relations back to the days of the Jim Crow laws (right after the War between the States). This is the most devisive president ever and he was going to “bring people togethere and be transparent”. Does not matter if he’s a mulatto (remember he’s half white). He could be purple with polka dots for all I care. He’s a lousy president. He should be head of the DNC as all he’s good for is fundraising and campaigning. Even Clinton as a loyal Democrat felt he was President of the United States not just the Democrats.

    • Haywood Jablomie

      Nice try. The problem is that the private sector is not “doing fine” compared to the public sector. The “public sector” (worthless bureaucrats) is growing like a weed under Obama, while the private sector – the sector that creates real, necessary JOBS – is shrinking.

      • macgyver1948

        Haywood Jablomie — you are so right, it is the private sector who creates, or not, jobs for the private sector and not the government. But we see even, for example, with the GW tax breaks, which were intended as intensives to help create jobs – DIDN’T. You just can not have a workable Trickle Down if those at the top who receive do not let any trickle. The intended “intensives” were instead used as ‘savings’ by the corporations.

        The fact is big corporations want to keep as much money at the top. Why? Well, if execs want to continue to receive their huge salaries, benefits and perks with those huge bonuses, they must keep the big investers and their boards smiling. If execs want to get their contracts renewed they have to keep the bosses happy. So they “DO MORE WITH LESS”. They allow so much less to trickle down. They do however try to keep expenses down as much as they can.

        By the way, payroll is by far the easiest expense to control. Create less jobs and you have lower expenses that way. Keep minimum wages down, or try to eliminate minimum wages all together, you keep expenses down. Keep pay raises for the hourly people down you save on expenses. Get the politician you purchased to help you keep expenses down and you get smiles from those who control your exec contract.

        The private sector can create more jobs if they want to but they have other agendas. For the corporations it is all about growing their bottoms lines and keeping expenses down and the GOP is in business exclusively to to help them do that. Romney is one of the corporate types who will help his own kind do that.

        If you remember after Romney killed so many jobs as a Bain man and as Governor he said it was all done in the name of “Good Business”. He will be that kind of businessman he says we need for the corporations if he is elected. And Trickle Down will continue to not trickle.

        Have a nice day, :-).

    • trumpsahead

      To Cee, Ron, or anyone else believing Obama is improving the U.S. economy,
      I’ve been saying for a three years now, just as I have since 9/11 when Bush was president, and while people all around me are laughing at how imbecilic Bush was and how many “mistakes” Obama is making, how “foolish” are their decisions. I say NONSENSE to that. Obama is very intelligent, and Bush allowed us to believe he was stupid. Maybe he was not the smartest president we ever had, but he did what he intended.
      Both Bush and Obama are not by any means incompetent. What they are is CRIMINAL. These criminal presidents have broken more USConstitutional law then all the presidents who came before them put together. Our once great country was great because of one reason and one reason only: we adhered to the guidelines of the U.S. Constitution, and we were emulated the world over because of that. We were a free nation not so long ago, but now, thanks mainly to Bush, who kicked criminality and destruction of America into “full speed ahead”, and now Obama the Finisher, the one who will go down in history as the most evil of all presidents who brought America to its knees, America cannot survive much longer along the path Obama is taking us. The debt that Obama is creating will very soon – most likely before the end of January 2013 – send the almighty American Dollar into a rapid value decline, throwing us into economic Greatest Depression. This is an INEVITABLE reality given the unrelenting spending and money creating Obama and Bernanke are doing. When China pulls the plug you better be prepared for an economic holocaust.
      There is ONLY ONE WAY OUT OF THIS and that is at the Tampa, Florida Republican Convention RON PAUL becomes nominated because people are continuing to wake up to the fact that Romney is Obama in whiteface. RON PAUL is America’s only hope.

          • http://yahoo gail

            I want to ask you what you really think about the morality of all these men we have in office! I want to ask you what you think about the idiot news people. I really want to ask you why no mention is ever made of the money which has been stolen from the social security program which concerns Rep and Dem and has never been put back if you have a bank loan what do they do? Stimulus doesnt create money gives the banks more capablity to be crooks Beneke printing money is very dangerous being President isnt black or white oslim or Catholic it is an executive position which you dont make laws or assume that you can you execute them. What is your opiion of Harry Reid and Nancy P?

          • Macgyver1948.

            Gail… Wow. My opinion on the morality of those in office. That is a tough job since I would have to do an analysis on each and all of them and I am not qualified. In general I believe if someone goes into politics to begin with, with the ideal of representing the people who voted for them, and in time they feel forced to vote according to how the party tells them to, regardless of how it may benefit or hurt their constituents, they are without ethics to say the least, maybe without morals too, they would have sold out. If, on the other hand, one goes into politics because it is a rather easy and self benefiting job with some power on top of it, We The People do pay and benefit them well, then that “representative” most likely had no ethics and maybe no morals to begin with.

            One thing to consider is if you want to be in politics you depend on your party for support. If you refuse to comply after a while your party stops supporting you and you most likely will lose a elections. Is that worth ones ethics and maybe what we think of as our soul? It is up to the individual. I like to speak out and write about politics and I know I couldn’t be a politician. My dad told me long ago my mouth would get me into trouble and I might get black balled by my party when I refuse to comply because I do not agree. LOL… So much for that career.

            Gail… Money taken from the Social Security fund, whether to fund a war or whatever, has been left with IOUs. As far as I am concerned if those IOUs are not payed off within a reasonable time those who signed them should be arrested for theft. Social Security would not be in so much deep water if it wasn’t opened up to the general fund. I believe President Johnson did that. Oh, there is loads of talk about the taking of SS funds but not much has been done about it. We need to soon.

            You said “Stimulus doesn’t create money gives the banks more capablity to be crooks…”. Well. Banks are nasty people and I will leave some of my favorite quotes about them from some old guy I bet you know but it isn’t just banks. Stimulus will never stimulate any economic growth by way of helping us to spend our extra money unless those being stimulated, those at the top who receive the Stimulus, do not use it for anything more than just savings for themselves. That has been the case so often with Corporations in general. My definition of big Corporate Executives, banks and others, it doesn’t matter if they are greedy. This is why Trickle Down will not work if savings is how the trickle is used.

            Contracted Execs have three main objectives. 1. To increase the bottom line. 2. Keep as much money at the top as they can. 3. To keep expenses down as much as possible. My number 3 is in support of the other two but it has a life of its won as well. How they accomplish their main goals is not always ethical and that includes how they “speak” to our representatives.

            By the way, payroll is by far the easiest expense to control. I mention that for several reasons but here is a good one. We should know, in general, big corporate executives have very lucrative contracts, $millions of bucks and bennies and perks, and they report to their Board of Directers. If the execs want to go on being execs there, and maybe improve their contract at renewal time, the execs must keep their top share holders happy and in turn, their board. Jobs are created only when it is in ‘their’ best interest, not ours, so where are the incentives for execs to crate jobs? Government can create only Government jobs but then there are the so-called incentives for the corporations. I believe small corporations are better job creators, as they can, if they get incentives for Uncle Sam.

            You asked me for my “opinion of Harry Reid and Nancy P”. To answer you on that let’s just say they are politicians and they are doing their party thing. So is John A. Boehner and Cantor. It all depends on how they are “stimulated”. Remember that Corporate execs do a lot of Government stimulating and that result is why we need to listen to the founders. When you hear people say, especially politicians, they align themselves with the founders, think about what they say in general and what they do. See the below quotes. See the below quotes.

            Now for those quotes from the founders on how they felt about banks and corporations along with one I wrote. It is no only banks.
            “I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country.” – Thomas Jefferson

            Thomas Jefferson got it right when in 1802 he wrote, “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property—until their children wake up homeless in the continent their fathers conquered.”

            All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise not from defects in the Constitution or Confederation, not from a want of honor or virtue so much as from downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation.”–John Adams, at the Constitutional Convention (1787)

            For the fun of it:“This corruption we speak of comes from corporate greed, regardless of corporate type, supported by the eagerness of many of our politicians, for the purposes of taking corporate money to help support themselves and the Corporations”. Macgyver1948. No, I do not think of myself in the same league as the Founders.

      We lost 2.1 million jobs in the year( 2008) BEFORE OBAMA WAS SWORN IN! Were they small business jobs? If the small businesses are gone NOW how difficult would it be for Obama OR ANY PRESIDENT to put them back to work at their former work????
      DO you think maybe a large number of those small businesses were ON THEIR WAY OUT BEFORE 1/20/09 and caused the 2008 job loses?? The 06 and 08 elections seem to indicate that those Americans not in denial of the weakness of the bush economy were seeing a slide in the economy that had been under the complete control of the Republicans for the prior 6 years!

        There are a few things that will turn this country around. 1.Replace the tax code with a fair tax for everyone………….no loop holes. 10% on everybody when they buy anything. 2. Lower corporate taxes……we have the highest corporate rate in the world. Allow the corporations to bring the several trillions of dollars in off-shore banks back into this country at “0%”……yes that’s “ZERO” and a lot of it will be used for investments and creating jobs. Let’s see if we don’t lower the taxes on that money, they’ll keep it in off-shore banks……….it does no one any good!! DUHHHHH 3. Start drilling in this country for oil and gas. That’s exactly what North Dakota is doing and they have a 3% unemployment rate, and business is booming!! 4. Start holding Obama’s actions to the fire. He shouldn’t be investing taxpayer money in business ventures. He’s failed on all counts (of course that was Bush’s fault, right)

        If the above things were all we did, this country would turn around on a dime!!!

        Exactly. Anyone who was paying attention to what was happening in this country already knew, very well, that our country was not doing well. No matter what our President kept telling us. We KNEW our finances were dangerously out of control, and we’d known it for years. But when we pointed it out, with facts to prove it, we were told that we were un-american. That is nonsense. And an economy cannot fail in just 2 years. That is not even close to realistic. Not even close.

      • james street

        nc. “pass this stimulous bill and unemployment will never go above 8%” barak obama. that was over 3 years ago and unemployment has not went BELOW 8%. a trillion bucks spent that only stimulated the debt. bush has been gone for OVER 3 and a half years. the time has long come and gone to man up or shut up. he just authorized a million illegals to take american citizens jobs. now you will no doubt say they only do jobs americans wont do. the fact is they have made their way into the manufacturing sector also. obama and his AG have long opposed voter ID. why do you think they oppose voter ID nc? theres ONLY one reason to oppose voter ID. liberals say theres never been any evidence of voter fraud. how do you know that if you dont know whos voting, or how many times they vote? there was a case in a small town on the east coast where more people voted than the population of the town. no!!! that couldnt be voter fraud. if obama is re-elected america is GONE.

            Bush can’t even leave the country for fear of being grabbed for his convicted war crimes. That’s right, Bush (Cheney etc etc) has been convicted of war crimes in Malaysia. The trial was run according to the standards set by the Nuremberg Trials to convict war criminals after World War II.

            While Bush won’t be arrested on American soil, he’ll have a very difficult time leaving the country. Already he’s canceled a trip to Switzerland, due to possible charges of war crimes. He should also be tried by the American people as well for the lies he told the country just so he could have his Liar’s War. And in a separate trial he should be tried for the destruction of the American economy as a result of his Liar’s War and criminal policies.

            Don’t even compare Obama with that lying republican POS.

            As to Bush’s, his war crimes are becoming common knowledge now. in this country and the rest of the world. It’s been said he’s not welcome in Europe. Actually he should also be tried by the Americans for the lies he told the country just to start his Liar’s War…

            “In what is the first ever conviction of its kind anywhere in the world, the former US President and seven key members of his administration were today (Friday) found guilty of war crimes.

            Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and their legal advisers Alberto Gonzales, David Addington, William Haynes, Jay Bybee and John Yoo were tried in absentia in Malaysia.

            It is a travesty what other countries do to our people during war, but whether or not those people are tried for their war crimes is out of my hands… I have nothing to do with that and you know this… so why mention it?

            That these countries did not convict their people of war crimes is not my jurisdiction; there is nothing I can do about that as unfair as that is. Hell, I can’t even do anything about the fact that Bush II was convicted of his war crimes, even if I wanted to. Which I don’t.

          • Pritty Brains

            The alleged Obama war crimes, are you referring to Libya? His participation in the invasion of Libya will be found to be not war crimes… he was not being unconstitutional. I say this for two reasons… One) The United Nations was behind this invasion and America was approached by the UN, and like Obama said, “The United Nations out ranks any Congress in any single nation.” And Two) probably most of all, there is the The War Powers Resolution of 1973, passed in the aftermath of the Vietnam War. Under the act, the President can only send combat troops into battle or into areas where ”imminent” hostilities are likely for 60 days without either a declaration of war by Congress or a specific Congressional mandate.

            The President can extend the time the troops are in the combat area for 30 extra days, without Congressional approval, for a total of 90 days.

            Obama notified Congress with a letter outlining what was going to happen within the correct time frame and he has the United Nations backing. He is not a war criminal.


          • macgyver1948

            Pritty Brains,,, you are so right… Obama did do the entire Libya thing legally. And, to get us into a war(s), it is not like he lied to us, the Congress, The UN and the whole world to get us to do “his” immoral invasion which cost us so many US, as well as innocent Iraqis, lives and more money then we can make up in a very long time. It is not Obama who should, and I mean should, be looked at as a war criminal for war crimes.

          It’s better than it was when he took office????? Over 8% unemployment (and would be much higher, around 15% without the Dems creative accounting……….they don’t count any of the people who have given up looking for a job, or have taken a $7.50 per hour so they can put some food on the table.) If you did on your tax returns what they have done with the unemployment %, you would go straight to jail. But, Obama found a way to make it not look near as bad as it it!!! Also, the worst housing crisis in American history, and the largest deficit created in the last 3 1/2 years. Bush added to the deficit 4 trillion dollars in 8 years. Obama is on video in 2008 ripping Bush for being unpatriotic by increasing the deficit that much. Then Obama gets into office and adds 6 trillion (and counting) in 3 1/2 years. Guess he didn’t want to be outdone. HE IS THE CHAMP!!!!

          Gail… There is nothing in The Constitution about health care so I wont tell you there is. A main function of the Supreme Court is to judge the constitutionality of a “thing” and it could be anything. Are the actions in it Constitutionally legal? Chief Justice Thomas did not say he liked ObamaCare, he said it is ok as far as he sees. There are things in ObamaCare I do not like, many of those are Republican insertions, a sort of “we, the GOP, will not allow passage of this if you do not include some of our stuff”. The GOP tried and failed in the early 90s to get something passed and Reagan wanted national Health Care. Obama said he didn’t want those things included but he wanted national health for the country so he had to compromise to get it passed. I hope in his second term he and others remove the bad stuff.

          The Thing “If you cannot afford health insurance we will fine you through the IRS until you buy it anyway…” was in RomneyCare when Romney forced it on the Massachusetts people as Governor. There are other GOP things in it too that aren’t good for us. I wonder if the Romney things is what Romney will replace Obamacare with on his “first day in office”, as if he could. Romney does not want us to remember his stuff or he would talk about them in reference to what is in ObamaCare that he doesn’t now like. I wonder if he was told to not like his stuff but also not be specific about what he doesn’t like.

          Either way I hope ObamaCare works out with corrections since it has passed and it will be with us for a long time. I just want what is good for the country, not just the corporations although we need them too.

In the 1970′s the USSR tried to belittle Capitalism by claiming that 90% of their recent graduating class of medical doctors went into rural service compared to only 2% of US Doctors. The statistics underlying those percentages showed that the 2% of US Doctors was greater then the total of all USSR doctors that had graduated.

    This whole article is ludicrous. Obama is well aware that the economy is not doing “just fine.” His concerns on this issue are central to his reelection worries. Obama would much prefer that the United States have 5-6% unemployment rate instead of its current 8% rate. Such an environment would guarantee Obama an ovewhelming reelection. A 4-year-old could see how ridiculous Mr. Root’s argument is. Why does Obama “want” a weak economy when this will cost him reelection? All elected politicians regardless of party or ideology want a strong economy when they are facing reelection. As I said, even a 4-year-olds know this. But Mr. Root apparently does not.

    Reality check! Neither Obama and the democrats, nor Romney and the republicans have any idea what to do. There is nothing conspiratorial about any of the actions and decisions made now by the present crop of leaders, including those of other nations. The mess has been made and they are all being controlled by their personal greed, haven’t the will to do anything to change matters or alter their personal circumstances, so it is time to realize that choosing sides now is a futile exercise. As long as our leaders follow their present misguided actions again and again, the same results will occur and nothing will improve. The planet is at the mercy of a great many fools, or so some think. Actually the inhabitants are at the mercy of the extraordinary resilience and strength of the planet and will succumb to her might as all the other idiotic inhabitants before. The time to wake up is long past and there will be no survivors – good riddance may be an appropriate expression here. The next intelligent decision to be made by any of our leaders will certainly be the first and it matters not who makes it. Total disregard for anything except oneself is not a great characteristic, but a rampant feature in the makeup of our ” leaders “. The joke will be on them as well, so relax and enjoy, understand that the future will be nothing like the one most dream about. Somewhere, someone said: “Father forgive them, they know not what they do.” or something like that.

    You must be a mental midget. Of course any sitting President would want a low unemployment and strong improving economy, IF, he wanted to be re-elected as an
    American President with the country’s welfare and the American peoples welfare at heart. The point Wayne is making is HE WANTS THE COUNTRY TO BE UNDER HIS AND HIS SOCIALIST, MARXIST, COMMUNIST CONTROL. If he gets re-elected and is allowed to continue down the same path as he has these past 3.5 years, he will get his way. Just do the math and unemployment will be more like 40% instead of the 20% is actually is today. Also, the only jobs will be with the government and at that point, when there is rioting in the streets, he will declare Marshall Law, and will not leave the chair of the President of the US and we will have our dictator. If you don’t think that can happen here, then you are a fool. He who controls the military controls the country and has the power. If he is re-elected,, which I expect him to be either legitimately or by some other means., then I for one am ‘out of here” because I will not wait for the other shoe to drop.

But, when I see someone in front me at the grocery store buying all kinds of stuff that they don’t need, and then the cashier tells them they don’t have enough food stamp money for every thing, they pull out a wad of money that would choke a horse and pay the difference, it ticks me off!! Especially when they go out and get in a fairly new SUV or Cadillac. Obama is even spending millions trying to get more people to get on food stamps. He needs the votes!! I’m curious………….when do the food stamps and welfare check show up at your house each month??????

          As I said, vote him in again and hang on to your hat, cuz you ain’t seen nothing yet. OF COURSE IT WILL STILL BE ALL BUSH’S FAULT!!!! And you’ll keep voting for the Democrats. They know that by keeping you dependent on your welfare and food stamps that you’ll HAVE to vote for them………… keep the gravy train rollin’.

          Hey, the course that Obama has us on has worked great in Greece, Spain, Italy, and the other countries in Europe. It will work exactly the same way here, but Obama will still be able to act like a “pig in slop” like he and Michelle have been doing these last 3 1/2 years.
          They’ve had a great time spending our money!!!

          As Ron White always says, “You just can’t fix stupid!!”

    As a small business owner, I will close if Obama is reelected. We are NOT doing fine! On top of that, the IRS is being used to harass. I have been in business over 25 years, and it has NEVER been like this. Everyone should prepare, because this won’t end well if people don’t wake up.

    • Pritty Brains

      Why will your business close?

  • http://aol theno1chief

    Reading some of the posts makes me aware we have a large population of sheep in this Country. To say the private sector is doing fine tells me that person either is ignorant or never leaves their cave! I do not blame President Obama totally, we must blame Congress, corporate America for moving jobs to cheap labor countries to make more profit, and ourselves for the situation we are in. What I blame President Obama for is his lack of leadership, he was totally unprepared for the job, why should we expect him to be prepared, his background, that we are aware of, is community organizer in Chicago. How does that prepare him to lead the most powerful nation on the globe? At the pace we are going today, we will certainly not be the most powerful a few years from hence!

    • nc

      Theno, who could have been better “prepared” to lead a country’s economy than Herbert Hoover with his engerneering degree and business experience and george w. bush, with his business backround purchased with family money and his MBA fro major university????
      AND THE RESULTS WERE?????????????????
      Obviously the American people did not think that Mc Pain and Caribou Barbie were the anwer! Would they have been a guarantee that the stock market would have climbed the way it did instead of falling the way it did under the prior Republican President! Americans sure as h*ll didn’t want to take the chance! In Novemeber those same 69 million Americans will have to decide if Romney is a good enough reason to change their votes!
      A victory for Romney policy, what ever it will become between now and November, may not be as easy as the wingnuts think. I remember Sean Hanniy the night before the 06 elections promising his right wing viewers a “republican sweep”!! Yeah , Right,!!

      • DaveG

        If you like what’s happenen in the last 3 1/2 years vote him in again!! If you don’t vote him out!!


      The truth is that Obama is a mass hypnotist in the model of the Fuehrer, and the believers are under his hypnotic spel.

  • Lou A

    Wayne is correct. I started telling people even before he was elected that he was going to do everything possible to bankrupt our Country because that would be the only way to ram his Communist agenda down our throughts. Myself being born and raised among Communists can recognize exactly what he is, make no mistake he is a Communist. Communism is Evil and it has destroyed every Country were it has been instituted. I always ask people that beleive whay they read in communist books, “How many Americans do you know that jump at sea and try to swim to Cuba looking for freedom”? because I can tell you that thousands of Cubans have done just that and lost their lives trying to make it to the USA

    God Bless the USA. Long live out Republic!!

  • Rick

    Dear Cee, Rasta and Tony, Please open your eyes! Obama does not love America. He is a very smooth talking man, and he has a great smile, which now makes me sick whenever I see it because I can see right through him, and his plan to destroy this country. If Obama is reelected, the America we grew up in and have Loved, the America that people have wanted to come to from all over the world because it is different (FREE, AND NOT RULED BY SOCIALISM), will be LOST FOREVER. Please learn about the founding principles that make this country different from all the other countries on the planet. Multitudes of men and women have given their lives to defend the unique way of life we have here because TRUE FREEDOM is worth fighting for. Do you really want to live under socialistic rule? YOU BETTER THINK ABOUT THAT.

    • Doc Sarvis

      Just because we have some social programs does NOT make us a Socialist country. For most of our history, our fine country has had social programs. Most, if not all, of us have used and benefitted from those social programs.

      • Rick

        Doc, If you like Socialism, just move to Western Europe and take Obama with you. Let him be your King there. I do not think it would take very long before you would be longing for America. If you give a Socialist an inch, he will take more and more until your freedom is gone. And, it would be very hard, if not impossible to get it back. I do not want to go down that road. Please Doc, try to look past the smile and see what is really happening. Also, take a close look at Pelosi and Reid. Cant you see the evil?

      • Doc Sarvis

        Rick, who says I like Socialism???

      • Doc Sarvis

        I’ve NEVER had either one of those. I don’t think I have ever even seen a welfare check or food stamps. I continue to work hard for my living and my family as do most Americans.

      • Nadzieja Batki

        Doc, if you have never seen food stamps or a welfare check, you must be living in a cave somewhere, and never been in a grocery store. I have seen people buying groceries with food stamps for over 50 years.

  • richaboli

    As you can see by these posts, way too many people living in this country can’t see socialism leading to communism when it is sitting on their noses. The poor living in a fee enterprise system (capitalism) live a much higher standard of living than the poor living in socialism. All they have to do is look at how the poor live in socialistic countries. Under socialism the poor will not be able to acquire TVs, microwaves, or cars, They’re sure to miss it once they lose everything.

  • stanandchris

    Rick and Lou A and others are correct, but it is not too late. If the American people would just look at how their representatives have voted in the past and analyze if they are in agreement with the way they have voted, then vote to re-elect them; if not, vote them out. If people were to actually LOOK at who they are voting for, then I believe that a very large percentage of the sitting incumbents would lose their seats. If the people that replace them don’t vote they way you want them too, then KICK THEM OUT. With the present system, a single person should not be able to “control” this country.

    This is what has happened, the American people have become complacent in that all our elected officials have the good of the country at heart. At one time, that was probably mostly correct, however, we have been infiltrated by people who want to destroy this country and many of them have risen to positions of power, I for one truly believe Obama is one of those people. If you want to keep these folks from destroying our way of life, then do something about it. Yes, it would be great to kick Obama out but that in and of itself will not do the job. We don’t yet really know what Mitt Romney is really all about, he could be just as bad or worse.

    The way to make a change and to take our country back is at the House and Senate levels on the Federal level and the State Representatives at the local level. If people were to just PAY ATTENTION then all of this could be changed.

    I for one would like to see a website dedicated to the voting records of all the Representatives at least on the Federal level, whether Democrat or Republican or otherwise by State and then encourage people to go to that website before going to a voting station. Decide if you like the record of the incumbent and vote them out if you don’t . Does that mean the new person in office would do any better? Probably not, but guess what, he will be out the next time.

    That is how you make change in this country!!

    Does such a website exist? If not then maybe I will start one

  • Jerry Fournier

    If you believe that the US economy’s downward spiral is a plan from Barack Obama? The people in thia country has been aslwwp at the wheel and driving the boat into the next iceberg larger than the one the Titanic hit in its day. Get the testimony that described the exact results that began with a designated plan before Obama was recruited to take the blame for a different group of players that has been right on schedule since 1986. When Obama was recruited by Pres. Carter ‘s :NSA Director Mr B. Their plan would help Obama
    get elected to help facilitate the greatest theft of all times in the next year 2013 The details are recorded and the transcripts can be made available for all Americans to see and the who in Europe that would be involved to see America fall from grace and into disgrace. After all I should know I am the one who was depoosed for five days highlighting the details. The Jerusalem Post blogger Schmuel Rosner knew all about tyhe name of the operations that were to be put in place to see it’s collapse. Baruch Haba, B’Shem Adonai~

    Go figure. There was more than ample information before the 2008 elections to see this catastrophe coming, but over half of the voting public fell for this manchurian any way. America is adrift from God, and Obama is the result

      Hi Jlucas, I was talking to a friend the other day and said that very thing. This is our sins coming back on us. How else could so many otherwise intelligent people be taken in by such a Con Man? If this is a plan of YAHUWAH (Gods Name), we will not be able to overthrow it. Lets pray hard that He will have mercy on us through our precious savior YAHUSHUA (the letter J did not exist before 500 years ago), and that He will open enough peoples eyes to Obama’s evil Socialist agenda before Nov.

  • RichardM

    All I can say is if Obama gets four more years, you will not recognize America anymore as the land of the free and the brave. We’ve been treated like boiling frogs, ever so slow to turn up the heat – by the time we realize we’re all being boiled alive, it’ll be too late.

    It’s now time to face up to those that will accuse you of racism, conspiracy nut, or whatever else the MSM and the communist lefties in this country will throw at you. I’ve seen Obama make a mockery of our judicial system. He still has not seen the inside of a courtroom concerning his eligibility to be POTUS. Every judge at first talks tough, then buckles under pressure. It’s even gotten to the SCOTUS! Basically, what we’re witnessing is the total dismantling of America and our American way of life. This man Obama is a fraud (we all know it, we just haven’t found a judge in the country that’ll take this on). I don’t know if it’ll get to the point of armed revolution, but our country is under attack from within with the MSM providing cover for Obama every step of the way. Apparently, Senator Joe McCarthy was right — our govt is infested with communists and communist sympathizers. It’s been a long time since Sen. McCarthy’s been around, so you can imagine how far these communists have come. They’ve infiltrated every aspect of our society — Hollywood, govt, education, corporations, you name it, they’re there!

    We can no longer just stand idly by and watch Obama and his communist regime take over America. We’ve been patient in our attempts at outing Obama by lawful means. Unfortunately, to no avail. This man Obama and his regime are law breakers and have and are commiting crimes against our nation. It’s time to draw the line in the sand, which side of the line are you on?!

    • Rasta

      Always, the first “refuge of a scoundrel is patriotism”. That old home of the brave and land of the free always elicits some nostalgic response from the right wing. Despite the fact that W left the coubtry in a shambles. They of course want a nother chance to run the country further in the ground. Let’s start another war, give our cronies more tax breaks we can’t pay for. I can’t wait until the Repub. convention. Then they will show that the TBaggers are in charge and they can not possibly govern their own party much less the country.

      • DaveG

        The Tea Party wants politicians who will stop spending money we don’t have, and stop the rediculous regulations that Obama has shackled the small business owners with….And that makes them bad. You obviously don’t own a small business. When do your food stamps and welfare check get delivered to your house? Vote him in again and you’ll keep getting them!!! Love those freebies that the rich pay for!!!

    Did you notice the common word in each line (July 5th) of your support for Obama? SPENDING! How does the country take 230+ years to get to a deficit of somewhere under $10 trillion up until 2008 and then go to $16 trillion and counting in just three and a half years? SPENDING! Your favorite son thinks the way out is to create more and bigger government. We know that teachers aren’t entrapreneurs, police and firefighters don’t hire anyone, and postal workers and employees of all the government beauratcracy just take the money that comes in from those that DO pay taxes and what little tax they pay goes back to the government. So, there isn’t any growth of wealth it just keeps circling what little we have around and around. Wake up to private sector jobs! It’s the only way out of the economic problem we’re in and the only way to GROW the economy. Pelosi’s “redistribution of the wealth” doesn’t work. It’s the fastest way to suck the life blood out of a free and democratic economy. Is Pelosi your grandma and Obama the best man at your wedding?

    It is absolutely impossible to reason with a liberal or anyone ignorant enough to STILL support the worst President in our nation’s history. Facts are just inconvenient so they’re ignored then replaced w/ Newspeak where the unemployment rate is magically at 8% percent, NO MATTER WHAT. The Fraud-in-Chief said it was criminal to add TRILLIONS to the debt by “his lonesome” then does the EXACT same thing except now its “acceptable” because its a Democrat doing it now. If I saw a movie w/ these stupid things being done, I’d turn the channel because I’d think “No way can anyone be that stupid”. I gave liberals too much credit. Bush Jr started the descent into economic ruin and the Fraud-in-Chief has actually accelerated the US’s demise. And people STILL want to vote for him!!!! America deserves to die because WE voted for this POS and also because we refuse to learn the lesson that Pbumma’s been cramming down our throats: HE HATES AMERICA AND WILL DO ANYTHING TO DESTROY IT.

      Obama does not hate white America. That’s a lie.

      This president was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Nor did he have a father who could pave the path for his ambitions. This president knows what it is like to rob Peter to pay Paul. He knows what America needs to heal if the opposing party would back off and start focusing on what American needs with him rather than focusing on bringing down a president. What they are doing, during earlier times would have been considered treason.

    Ladies and gentlemen:I have read one comment after another and for the most part,everyone has a remark that hits on some truth.There are so many things that goes on behind the scenes by our government that there is no way for us to follow.If I may give an example;our government uses the media to their own devices.Who knows what to believe anymore.I only know this.As disgusted as I am with President Obamas agendas,I am equally disgusted by our Congress who has allowed him to trample what I consider is the greatest Constitution in the world.What we are seeing in our government is exactly what Thomas Jefferson was afraid of,a large federal government whose power corrupts beyond our ability to stop it.Please bare in mind that I believe this to be the greatest country in the world but we no longer have honor.If the world does not trust you or your own people,how can that country succeed?I am old school in believing that everything begins with the honor of one man to may call me naieve but I still have this intent in my heart.I look at a U.S.marine and I see honor and courage.I see a fireman or police officer and I see honor and courage.I would love to see someone go into the Whitehouse and tell the U.S. citizens that enough already.We must go back to where it all started,a country fighting for its mere existence as we are now but do it with a full heart and do it with courage and honor.Again this all may just sound like a bunch of nonsense to most but I still believe and I still have hope.Without it and our Lord with us,I Ifear for the life of this great nation and and our children and grandchildren.Thanks for your time and may God bless everyone who cares enough to write their opinions and respect the opinions of others and may God again bless this great nation.

      Growing over a long period of time and accelerating within the last 15 years or so, the strong arm of the Federal Government has intruded into every facet of our lives. They now control virtually everything and these controls are strengthening by the day. In our communities, our officials, from the mayor and sheriff down to the humble janitor, can be bought and bribed by those in the central state. Our schools, once locally controlled, are now an extension of the Federal Government. Only one place remains ours, where citizens of a community can meet and mingle without being watched, regulated, ordered, and controlled. That is our community churches. They remain free. But look at the assaults upon them! I believe Fed control of the churches is the real motive behind the queer marriage absurdity, the motive behind Obama’s abortion conflict with the Catholics, and the motive behind the atheistic, brain-washed state worshippers. Once the Feds can control the churches their embrace of communities will be complete. They will then be in complete control of everything. We are entering an era of tyranny far beyond the imaginations of our ancestors.

    I’ve heard alot of opinions and read quite a bit. The bottum as I see it is, Obama did not start this issue. I’ll go back to other presidents. george Bush seniors famous quote was “Read my lips, no new taxes” (look back in past videos of His speach when he became president). After Him, We got JR., His antics took us from ex- president Clintons Surplus of funds to a (10)ten trillion to (14) fourteen trillion (at my last check) deficit with in his two terms. How can a man who screwed the country out of so much manage to steal another four years? Apathy. Our country is suffering from Bad Lobbyist who pander to the 1%. Greedy politiacians who pocket more than the work for ( I can’t prove it), but if you live in New York City, W’re gone from the Big Apple to the Big Urinal. I atke a shower every time I get home from Manhattan Housing more rats than those in siuts. Now sure Obama is the next guy to pick on, And I’m not saying He’s working for us all that well. Death squads if you’re too old to pay for insureance and poor you ends up in a hospital–well anyway The Obama health plan is another way we can all end up screwed. No way in Hell this this constitutional. Canada and Costa Rica get better health insurance but you don’t get fined of some punishment if you can’t afford it. This is just another way to screw citizens out of the little we get paid to begin with.
    When the Executive branch answers to the Judicials from Bush Jr. forward and accounts for those lost trillions. When the legislative branch no longer has the power to vote for their own raises. When Veterans get the same 100% full pay at retirement that Legislations gets, then maybe, If no other red tape gets in the way, we might start seeing improvement.
    It isn’t right that so called representatives get better benefits than private citizens. We Should have never gone to a military budget. Those running this country are causing greater issues than they pretend to be resolving….

    You know? This may sound insane, but it seems that supporting either the Republican, or the Democrat parties has been an exercise in futility and insanity. When all the democrats were booted out, the republican sycophants assumed the people supported their platform. And vise-a-versa the same thing happened when the republicans were booted out. Both parties’ sycophants trumpeted “they had a contract with America” and went head on to continue with their party agenda. When nothing was farther from the “truth” as all we wanted was for them to uphold their oath to the Constitution and make legislation accordingly. We see how that failed miserably. So may I make a suggestion?
    We need to take the democrats and the republicans completely out of the equation. “COMPLETELY!!!” That includes all aspects of our political hierarchy from the Potus on down to the city council. We need to take a hard look at third party candidates (I might suggest the Constitution party or the Libertarian party), and avoid electing either a democrat or republican for “anything” unless you really know where they stand and who financially supports them. (Of course that should apply to anyone you cast your ballot for.) This may be the only way to bust this politburo that we are afflicted with. Like I said “this may sound insane”, but what about all the insanity that’s coming out of D.C and your State House? As I see it, we have no other recourse except maybe an armed revolt to reinstate a new government, and that would be very sad.

    Seems like it took a long time for someone to come right out and say it. Now to do something about it before he completes his plan, which is well along its way with the national debt out of bounds and control, and a new health care bill that will almost put the lid on it. and now we have a supreme court that says the government can make you do what the governments wants you to do and call it taxes. When is it going to stop? Are there any intelligent people left in congress?

  • Pritty Brains

    The Republican party publicly vowed to make Obama a one term president in the beginning before Obama started working for this country and that’s what they have been focusing on for the last four years.

    “To hell with America and the American people, let’s just destroy Obama and block his every step of progess for the country because the American people are stupid and will blame the president.”

    Here read this well written article on the treachery of the Republican party to the American people. It knocked me out of my chair. Definitely well worth the time to read.

    And while you’re at it, here is a long long list of documented Obama accomplishments. Make sure you click on the links as they will take you to the sources.

    Oh and Wayne Allyn Root, you are so full of bull caca.

      He was in college with Obama. He’s been saying for years what Obama didn’t hide while in college. And, it’s all coming true. He’s taking this country down, and all you free loading leftists and helping. Just remember, when the money runs out…………..and it will, who are you going to turn to for your free crap. Hopefully you won’t have children, because you will be spared th explanation that you were just a freeloading bum who voted not once, but twice for the biggest failure in the history of the U.S.

      Obama said it himself. “If I can’t fix the problems in one term, then I don’t deserve a second term.” Wow!!! His lips were moving, cuz he been fund raising for the last year so he can get a second term. I really don’t know what Michelle Obama is going to do when she doesn’t have the taxpayers money for go on an African safari, take her kids and their friends to Mexico, and all of the other freebies that come with the Presidential office. I’ll bet she really cuts back when she has to start spending her own money. And, what’s a crying shame is that Obama will have a life-time pension for being the worst U.S President in history. I wouldn’t be proud of that tag…………worse than Jimmy Carter????? Yep!! The facts don’t lie……………no matter how much you lefties deny it!!!

    It’s good to see progressives/communist oriented people posting their thoughts here, and there are some pretty interesting posts, thoughtful, even if they are not by well informed people. Particularly noteworthy is the absence of such liberl/progressive sites where we conservatives can have a collolquy with opposing forces without being sued, threatened, and shut up through force.

A fascist believes in Private ownership / government control. Romney’s a fascist. You might think you own it but don’t pay your taxes and you’ll find that in reality your renting everything you thought you owned. Who did you like better? Hitler or Stalin. Well that’s the people you’ll be voting on this November.

There’s no doube as to what we’re getting Obama…………..more of the same, only worse!!! If Obama gets back in, this country is toast!!! I’ll take my chances on Romney!!!

  • BrianM

    it amazes me that when the gov data is sitting on for all to look at, anyone could deny that Obama is spending 3.8T/yr while under Bush the highest year was 2.7T. The budget reached 3.8T by the democrat dominated congress passing the stimulus. It remains at that level because the senate voted 100 to zero against O’s first budget proposal(no den wanted to vote for such a massive spending debacle) and no other budget has been brought up since. Continuing resolution keeps the budget at the previous yrs level if no budget passed.

  • BrianM

    the question to ask yourself then is; “why do we need a budget of 3.8T per yr when there has been near zero inflation since 2007 and that is a 40% across the board increase in all get budgets? And what the hell are they spending it on…off books no doubt…since there has been no appropriations, all dept. budgets are vague?”

    A news story that doesn’t receive the coverage it deserves is the so-called ObamaCare waivers that will be handed out to “friends” of the President and supporters of his health care power-grab, according to a public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption.

    President Barack Obama’s healthcare reform law does not specify which companies or labor unions should receive waivers for its requirements and under what circumstances.

    Critics of how Heath and Human Services Department has chosen to handle these waiver requests highlight the haphazard nature of the approval process and the fact that companies able to secure these coveted Obamacare exemptions are given an unfair competitive advantage over their rivals.

    For example in New York City, the powerful United Federation of Teachers was granted a one-year waiver from compliance with the new health care reform law. “Of course, it should be noted that the UFT, a group that represents tens of thousands of teachers and education professionals, was gung-ho over getting Obama elected and ObamaCare passed.

    Now they want an exemption while the rest of us get soaked,” said political strategist Mike Baker.

    According to‘s Warner Todd Huston: “There was no press releases or flowery Obama announcements of these waivers issued to the press.

    The HHS buried the waiver announcement six layers deep on its web page and posted them when they imagined no one would notice. It’s a typical Friday evening document dump so common when an administration wants to avoid the prying eyes of the people.

    So much for the most transparent administration in history, eh?”

    “One thing is sure about these waivers. Obama rewarded his union pals quite well.

    Some 15 unions and union healthcare or financial fund and insurance providers fill the list of companies and groups that will not have to operate under Obamacare’s destructive rules,” said Warner.

    Huston reported that these organizations were rewarded with waivers, all of whom worked hard to get ObamaCare passed.

    The Service Employees Benefit Fund
    United Food and Commercial Workers Allied Trade Health & Welfare Trust Fund
    International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Union No. 195
    Asbestos Workers Local 53 Welfare Fund
    Employees Security Funds
    Plumbers & Pipefitters Local 123 Welfare Fund
    United Food and Commercial Workers Local 227
    United Food and Commercial Workers Maximus Local 455
    Service Employees International Union Local 25
    United Food and Commercial Workers Local 1262
    Musicians Health Fund Local 802
    Hospitality Benefit Fund Local 17
    Transport Workers Union
    United Federation of Teachers Welfare Fund
    International Union of Painters and Allied Trades (AFL-CIO)

    Watchdog group Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit against the Obama Department of Health and Human Services to obtain records regarding the agency’s decision to grant “waivers” to companies and labor organizations—such as the Obama-friendly Service Employees Union International (SEIU) and the unions that represent federal employees—seeking to be exempt from the requirements of Public Health Services Act Section 2711, President Obama’s healthcare reform law.

    According to HHS’s own estimate, at least 222 companies and unions have received waivers from the law, commonly known as Obamacare.

    The Great American (Republican) Treachery
    by George Kennedy

    Over the last three years, the rest of the world cheered America. The rest of the world wanted this nation, under the leadership of its first African American president, to succeed. People around the world were practically euphoric over the prospect of an America willing to detach itself from the disastrous economic, foreign, and geostrategic policies of the previous Bush Administration. Perhaps it was this spontaneous outpouring of worldwide affection and support for Barack Obama that sowed the seeds of anger, hatred, and unvarnished vitriol that came to characterize the attitude and behavior of the leadership of the Republican Party toward the new president. More likely is the fact that Obama symbolized the changing demography of America and the inevitable impact on power sharing arrangements.

    Forty months ago, a small but select group of Republican leaders, including recent GOP presidential contender and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, met in a Capitol Hill office to plot the downfall and humiliation of the newly inaugurated president and his administration. To many Americans, this represents no less than a great American betrayal. History may judge the administration of G.W. Bush as the worst in American history but the Democrats did not plot to undermine him at the outset of his tenure as president. It is telling that the GOP continues to take comfort from an anemic recovery brought about largely by their intransigence.

    The disappointing May jobs report provided temporary political lift to House Republican leaders and the Romney campaign because it offered a timely opportunity to once again portray President Obama as a failed president slavishly devoted to tax increases for “job creators” and more “job killing” regulations. Neither assertion is true but it is a line of attack that permits conservatives to frame the economic initiatives of this administration in the most negative light possible. No one, therefore, should have been surprised at their reaction to the jobs report.

    Our system of government is dependent upon cooperation for effective governance. Americans like it that way; at least until recently they have. It is fair to say that the GOP’s elected representatives today are largely unmoored from the constituencies they were elected to represent. Moreover, Republicans in Congress assume no responsibility for the consequences of precedent-setting practices to obstruct this president over every proposal he advances to elevate the economy from the morass he inherited from his predecessor. To the GOP, history began in January 2009, not January 200l, at least as far as the economy is concerned.

    Meanwhile, income inequality in America continues to widen and the consequences have created serious ripples throughout society. Millions of Americans remain unemployed, homeless, and without much hope for the future as we approach the mid-point of this century’s second decade.

    The scope of the GOP’s great American betrayal is breathtaking: bring the country to the brink of the abyss- and beyond; and, destroy the Obama Administration to reclaim power by any means necessary. Demand more tax cuts for the wealthy; resist any attempt to roll back the Bush tax cuts, and declare defense reductions off limits. Moreover, declare “Obamacare” as unconstitutional, lobby against consumer protection, and hold hostage any legislative proposals that help to recover from the greatest economic calamity since the Great Depression. The betrayal was calculated to spread economic uncertainty throughout the private sector like a plague timed to destroy, not weaken, the President’s prospects for a second term.

    The betrayed are the tens of millions of Americans who believed in “Hope” and “Change” and brighter prospects for America after eight years of war, rising health care costs, wage stagnation, a housing market collapse, joblessness, and the collapse of Wall Street.

    The betrayers never intended to govern when they could obstruct. There is no need to fabricate this assertion. The Senate Minority Leader admitted his “principal goal was to make Obama a one-term president.” When reports of the agenda for the secret Capitol Hill meeting on Inauguration Day 2009 surfaced, the betrayal was complete. There was a time when this behavior might have been considered treasonous. At the very last, their behavior was a stunning act of betrayal of those they were elected to serve. The current GOP presidential nominee is the latest accomplice.

    Mr. Romney, according to the New York Times, “scoffed at Mr. Obama’s campaign slogan ‘forward’, saying the president was leading the nation ‘backward.’ The GOP’s nominee refuses to advance any new proposals that would distinguish a Romney Administration from those of the president he wants to unseat. Romney’s credibility is undermined among important segments of the electorate (women, Latinos, the GLBT community) when he consistently takes policy positions that appeal only to his base with whom, by the way, he cannot seem to disagree.

    The New York Times frames the Republican betrayal in language that, to date, eludes the President’s campaign rhetoric: “The way forward has been blocked, time and time again, by Republicans pushing the same tax cuts and deregulatory policies now espoused by Mr. Romney, that have failed in the past to spur the economy.”

    Romney and the GOP share selective amnesia regarding measures taken by the current White House, with bipartisan support, that helped to steady the economy. For example, the payroll tax extension through 2012 and how critical it was to our economic recovery and, as the President noted in a recent speech to the White House summit of key advisors and editors of influential online news sites, “the addition of four million jobs over the past few years.” Republicans, however, continue to insist the Stimulus did not create a single job. Again, this is just another example of politically selective amnesia.

    Is it not an act of betrayal to set millions of Americans adrift on a sea of hopelessness by claiming debt reduction is more important than real job creation?

    Is it not perfidy for a Speaker of the House to publicly proclaim that his party’s focus is on “Jobs, Jobs, Jobs” while advancing numerous bills to restrict abortion and then calling them job creation? This does not fool Americans.

    Is it not a breach of faith for Congressional leaders, with a fiduciary responsibility to the voters, to be willing to take the nation’s credit rating once again into the tank rather than work with the White House on legislation designed to restore the Middle Class – the real economic growth engine in America? History shows the American economy experienced its fastest growth when broad segments of society prosper.

    Joseph Stiglitz aptly noted in a Vanity Affairs article, “The rich do not exist in a vacuum. They need a functioning society around them to sustain their position.”

    This President still represents a profound disappointment to many of his most ardent supporters but they have not forgotten the excesses of his predecessor. The question for Ohama’s campaign team is, can Obama retain the loyalty of those he inspired in 2008? Will he reap the rewards of that loyalty at the ballot box in November?

    What distinguishes Obama from Mitt Romney and the GOP is his continuing commitment to govern on behalf of the country. He is not the philosophical ideologue prepared to sacrifice core principles. He believes in cooperation and is prepared to incur the wrath of his supporters to advance a broader policy agenda that would strengthen the economy, rebuild this nations crumbling infrastructure, increase domestic energy independence, preserve public education, advance reasonable regulatory reforms, and decrease our military presence in Afghanistan. This short list distinguishes him from Mitt Romney who fails to distance himself from a failed Republican agenda of the past.

    The American people are looking for fairness, not just in income or wealth, but more broadly. They feel marginalized. Americans want a fully functioning government to address their concerns, largely the absence of opportunity.

    Absent private sector investment and government-backed stimulus, one can only imagine the state of the economy, as it would exist today. Interminable sacrifice and perpetual austerity by the majority to preserve the power, privileges, and wealth of the very few is not a recipe for stability and social cohesion. The sinews holding this country together may be less elastic than envisioned by conservatives

    I noted in an earlier post)”Measuring the 2012 Fall Election – Life Under the Jobs Report”) “The irony is that the path to success for the Romney campaign is an economic recovery that cannot be sustained, higher levels of unemployment, and just more bad economic news.

    The Republican treachery is rooted in the notion that we collectively must endure more austerity and more pain. This is the route to success they envisioned at that fateful meeting on January 20, 2009.

    Our collective frustration, fears, even bigotry among many, is the weapon the GOP depends upon to achieve power, the presidency, and total control over this country on November 6, 2012. The GOP, its SuperPAC allies, and the Koch brothers, have publicly announced they are prepared to spend one-billion dollars to create one job while funding the election of their acolytes to populate the House and the Senate, not to mention State houses. To date, only the State of Montana is prepared to wage war against the forces of darkness that stand at the gate.

    What name does treachery have to have? What face must it present before we understand the gravity of the choice we have to make this fall?

    When a political party is prepared to wage war against women (50 percent of the population); when that same party systematically destroys public education and public sector unions, flattens the economy, despoils the environment, and wages permanent war against presumed “enemies” for an oligopoly of interests, what greater act of treachery must we be prepared to endure before recognizing that all of us stand at the brink of the abyss?

    For those that harbor the illusion they will escape the snare designed for others (the less deserving), remember the fate of the Air Traffic Controllers under President Reagan. They might also recall that if they come for others, then their friends and neighbors, you might be next.

    Our choice is to contribute to the treachery that could engulf the country, or choose hope. What is the more reasonable choice?

    Mitt Romney Says, “If I’m The President, I’ll Get It Right”
    By George Kennedy

    The stars appear to be in alignment for Mitt Romney’s quest to become his party’s presidential nominee. If this proves to be true, perhaps the most prophetic words spoken by this candidate to date may be, “If I’m the president, I’ll get it right.”

    Mitt Romney made this promise Tuesday night in a speech in Appleton, Wisconsin. More broadly he said, “It’s time to have someone who will take responsibility, and if I’m president I will not only get things right again, I’ll take responsibility for my errors and make sure that people understand we will have a president in the White House again where the buck will stop at his desk.” So, Romney is a fan of Harry Truman, that feisty Democrat from Missouri? His statement is profound in its implications.

    Romney suggested that our sitting president failed to accept responsibility to manage the collapse of the nation’s financial system in 2008, the biggest crash in household wealth ever in the U.S. Romney infers that President Obama failed to accept responsibility for the resolution of two unfunded wars, two costly but unfunded tax cuts, and an unfunded Medicare Part-D.
    Also, Romney would have us believe the President failed to manage the fallout from an economy in the throes of the worst recession since the Great Depression, an economy that could not find the bottom for bad news. Moreover, Romney suggests the President failed to address a nine percent unemployment rate, a moribund manufacturing sector, a bankrupt General Motors, and an economy that had lost 3.5 million jobs in the six months before President Obama took office.

    We need crystal clarity to understand the level of Romney’s charge against the president he would replace. So, that is our departure point.

    Any incoming president, cabinet member, or CEO has to begin with a review of the budget. They would ask, what is the
    relationship between revenues and expenditures? What are essential priorities and programs that define us as a nation? What are discretionary programs and thus amenable to restructuring, reduction, or perhaps elimination? These are but a few of the myriad questions that merit serious review. The outcome of this review would define the early period of any new presidency.

    Romney, the candidate, has embraced Congressman Paul Ryan’s budget. In fact, Romney called it “marvelous”, an unusual appellation for a federal budget proposal. We should assume the Ryan budget would provide the framework for the eventual architecture of a Romney administration. That seems fair.
    Here is where it gets tricky for Romney. The Ryan budget, if passed by a Republican-controlled Congress and approved by a Romney White House, would inflict unusual pain and suffering on the middle class, the poor, children, and the elderly; and that’s just for starters.

    So, how would Romney “get it right” by adopting a budget that features across-the-board cuts in discretionary spending during a weak economic recovery dependent upon a delicate balance between government spending and private sector growth?
    How would Romney get it right by supporting tax cuts which would disproportionately benefit households earning more than $250,000 annually and would cost $4.6 trillion dollars over the next decade?

    How would the new president get it right by phasing out Medicare as 78 million Boomers know it and shifting its recipients to a system of vouchers that would drive up the costs of health care for the elderly?

    How does the new president get it right by gutting Medicaid, Food Stamps, transportation, and child nutrition? Average and lower-income Americans depend on these programs. Romney has said there is “no free lunch”, and no more government handouts when he’s president.

    How would the “extremely conservative” Mitt Romney get it right when he says that one of his first acts as president would be to end Obamacare thus alienating the millions of families whose 2.5 million adult children are currently covered under their parents’ health insurance up to the age of 26? To those numbers, you need to add the 17 million young adults no longer denied coverage because of pre-existing conditions.

    How would the former-governor-turned-president get it right by cutting Pell Grants – college scholarships for tens-of-thousands of needy college students? Does he get it right by cutting funds for medical research, national parks, and environmental preservation?

    Polling reveals that Mitt Romney remains undefined to a wide universe of people. To approach his hypothetical presidency as a surgeon would amputate a limb would generate as much public alarm as the patient losing the limb without the benefit of anesthesia.

    If Romney says he “will get it right”, his tin ear needs to be more sensitive to the economic insecurity many Americans feel today. The problem Romney confronts is he lacks empathetic qualities that put him in the shoes of less fortunate others.
    The challenge even for candidate Romney is his failure to square his campaign rhetoric with his own reality. Success in Romney’s world trickles down from the success of a wealthy few – like himself. The American tradition, the success model for the average working/professional American, is that success comes from the effort and success of a strong and growing middle class.

    Romney pays lip service to middle class concerns in his public statements but his life’s experience and embrace of the Ryan budget are the contradictions he will have to address. Americans know that “trickle-down” economics devastated the middle class under Reagan-Bush and Bush-Cheney. David Stockman, Reagan’s first budget director, admitted the theory doesn’t work and said it only widened the wealth gap between the rich and the rest of us.

    The underlying theme of the Ryan budget, that Romney embraces, is that we as a society are “not in this together.” The theme is “every man or woman for themselves.” There is big government for the wealthy and small government for everyone else. And, there is big and intrusive government with regard to women’s healthcare and contraception. As the GOP’s standard bearer in the coming campaign, the message he will convey is angry; the vision he will offer is morality-based, and the underlying philosophy of his party is judgmental towards society at large.
    Over the next seven months, Romney will have to hit a reset button. Should he make that tactical shift, would it fly with conservatives and the election-deciding independents? How does Romney shake up his campaign’s public posture to restart his campaign while consolidating his base, many of which are not convinced he is the conservative he portrays himself to be? He may be the classic candidate impaled on the horns of an interesting dilemma.

    How does Romney “get it right” with a 16 percent gap in likeability among women? Furthermore, he has a Latino problem and current polls reveal a Jewish preference to stay with the president.

    Recently, the current GOP frontrunner identified Russia as the preeminent adversary of the U.S. Would Romney “get it right” by reigniting another trillion-dollar arms race with Putin’s Russia?

    Mitt Romney says he will “get it right” because of his proven success as a businessman and leader; that he has the courage to make the hard decisions the Ryan budget requires. Implementing the Ryan budget plan would represent no more than a continuation of the GOP’s preference for tax benefits for the rich while privatizing the safety net for the 99-percent, and unbridled capitalism at the expense of balance and the larger public good. It would represent another four years of squandering the public trust while feeding the GOP’s addiction to mismanaging our national and natural resources.

    To “get it right”, we would ask Romney to have the courage to represent a larger more positive and compelling vision for the country. Engage us with big, bold, and imaginative ideas, ideas that would excite a new generation and renew the faith of those who daily balance hope against the fear of falling into the abyss. Tell us how you would uplift, not how you would deny, impoverish, and set adrift those who seek a fair deal and not a handout.

    This, Mr. Romney, is how you get it right.

    • Johnnie

      I commend you Pritty Brains, but on this website you made one fatal mistake. You speak of Facts and Realities and you describe to his supporters just how weak the candidate is. No one on the GOP/Teabaggers would read your posting and accept it let alone understand it. They have been brainwashed for so many years they have a feeling of insignificance and low self esteem. It is a personality disorder (voting against your own interests) that borders on self destruction. Romney would bring their desires to fruit and then and only then would they realize their foolishness. We have to re-elect President Obama for the good of their mental health.

    • macgyver1948

      Pritty Brains…. I just read your post and then read Johnnie’s in response to yours. I believe Johnnie said it right so I do not have to add much. It is difficult to reach a mind that will not open to opposing views. I’m not saying any have to agree but to close off opposed views without knowing them and/or trying to understand them is pure ignorance. I think some day the dictionaries will define this kind of brain dead activity as The TEA mind. They might even put Wayne Allyn Root’s picture by the new definition so people would know.

      By the way, with, as you said “the underlying theme of the Ryan budget, that Romney embraces, is that we as a society are “not in this together.” The theme is “every man or woman for themselves.”. Yes it is.

      Without moral leadership from our government, not tight control but guidelines in the laws and help where needed, the Ryan/Romney approach could lead to mass anarchy. Maybe TEA wants just that since all they care about are the big corporations. And TEA (Koch) owns Romney so we better know what we will get if Romney wins. Romney is a Bain businessman (job killing and transferring over seas – while at Bain and as Governor) and Koch loves it, which is why Koch pledged so many hundreds of $Millions to own Romney during this campaign. Do any of us still think it is Romney’s voice we hear when he speaks?

      If Romney, or should I say Koch, wins there will be just the 2 classes as soon as Koch can arrange it, the masses of us – the new huge lower class, and what we now call the “1%”. David Koch ran for office a while back but it looks like he and his bro want only to own, and control, the government now. All it takes is to follow the Koch history to come to that opinion.

      Pritty Brains,
      Are you related to Joe Biden, by chance? Pritty long winded post, of course that’s what you get when you copy and paste drivel from progressive sites. To state that Obummercare would lower the US deficit after 10 years is pure hogwash. When have you ever known the government to not run into cost overruns? How’s it working for the Post Office?

  • macgyver1948

    Wow, this is so incredible. Root is so above us all in his ability to KNOW what other people’s intentions are. “Obama’s plan has always been to ruin the private sector”. Did root have dinner with Obama and O told him what his “intentions” are?

    Every time I listen to this root guy I look for the strings that work his mouth. Just his exaggerations are staggering but his attempt to fake the “truths” is amazing. This root is less credible than Alfred E. Newman or Howdy Doody. “Obama thinks…(whatever)”. Root is a mind reader so we should bow to him. Isn’t Root cleaver, LOL….

    • tlgeer

      It is amazing to me, too, how many people are psychic and are able to tell what someone else is thinking, without it being evident at all. In fact, what these people are saying is directly opposite from what all observation and evidence says is true.

      • macgyver1948

        Tigeer. it is very amazing but it seems to be the way of TEA…. I didn’t mean for that to rhyme but it fits, LOL….

        • http://yahoo Gail

          Are you a Democrat? You diffinitely are for Obama. You hate the TEA Party and I am an Independent as far as I am concerned I would through them all out of office

      • macgyver1948

        Tigeer… There are so many who follow tea who feel they do not need more than the words of tea. Facts are just in the way when it is so much easier to listen to what they are told. Forget about Root, he is just a small insignificant cog in the Koch plan for dominance. IT is all that huge money we should fear. Now before I get hate responses telling me I hate money let me say what I mean.

        Money , no matter how much, is not evil. Actually what we have come to know as the mis-quote should be “The Love Of Money is the root of all Evil” and it is saying it is not money but intention that is evil. For those religious people the Tenth Commandment, “Thou shall not covet” is what that old expression is based on. When one loves something so much he can lose sight of what is important. I see Koch as loving power and control so much, in favor of their bottom lines, all that matters to them is controlling and protecting that without regard for any of us.
        That is why they, primarily they, started TEA. They mass produce misinformation and they go after whatever might threaten their bottom lines and their bigoted and discriminating nature.. They went heavily, for example, after the Solar energy industry because alternative energy that they do not control is a threat to their bottom lines. We very much need to develop alternative energy but OIL is what flows through Koch veins. So they created TEA to get help from as many US citizens as they could and then it continues as it did with their dad and grand dad with the group called The John Birch Society and all the misinformation flows just like oil.. They love their money and their power…
        Trying to get people to believe you are psychic, even if they do not think of it in those terms, is one way. To spread the Root of misinformation is what they do. But it is only one way they go.

        IF you think the Koch family, the brothers and their dad are nice people here is a small polite showing of who they really are.'s_campaign_to_segregate_public_schools,_end_successful_integration_program_in_nc/

        There is so much more out there that is so much worse. We can stick with this for now but people who are themselves involved with the Tea Party should know who is backing TEA and what TEA really is. See if you, and your religious beliefs, really want to align yourselves with TEA. If you are Christian ask your self if Jesus would want anything to do with TEA.

  • macgyver1948

    Dennis. What you say is true and should be repeated so I will. Thank you so much. I want to add that long before Obama was elected, the Koch Klan did their research, being the dutiful investors and businessman they are, knew what Obama would be like so they created their TEA (from the John Birch Society) hate campaign against Obama. 3 or so years later Obama was elected.

    They knew Obama would try to do the nasty things you show, again below, and they had to stop him. Only thing is you TEA folk seem to think helping people is a bad thing if it is not you guys doing it. But what has the GOP done for us since the bush dumped all over us? Well, not much except neglect the country and our people for the main 2 purposes the GOP lives for.

    Purpose One is to benefit and protect the Big Corporations and the very wealthy pretty exclusively. And the other is,,, hhhhmmm, oh yeah, “Kill Obama”.

    Here are your words again but they do not mean as you would want them to, as TEA has wanted for you to believe. Enjoy your words again, :-)))

    Dennis says:

    Obama has spent more money on education than anyone else.
    Obama has spent more money on immigration control than anyone else.
    Obama has spent more on the military.
    Obama has spent more on alternative energy.
    Obama has spent more on the EPA.
    Obama has spent more on infrastructure.
    Obama has spent more on “jobs”.
    Obama has spent more on Police and Fire control.
    Obama has spent more on EVERYTHING than anyone else.
    Hey, wait a minute, what about all this massive deficit spending?

    Oh yea, that, thats the Republicans fault.

    LOL, you Oscumbocrats sure are braindead..
    It isn’t us “ Oscumbocrats” that are the brain dead, Thank you again for your kind words. LOL…

  • Questionman

    What happened? For the last three years, I keep hearing crap about you “american people” are broke under Obama. For the last three years they don’t have enough money to make ends meet, suddenly they have enough money to help try to get the black man they hate out of the White House! he is not a homosexual!

    The biggest lie of this or any political campaign has been the republican claim that President Barack Obama is a Marxist socialist who is attempting to destroy America. Most of the people making the allegations are individuals who utilize the epithet in a manner that demonstrates that they have no idea what ” Marxist Socialism” is, and even less of an idea of what types of programs are legally permissable in a constitutional republic.

    Unless it’s a particularly egregious racist comment like calling the First Lady “Moochelle” or a monkey then just address whatever nonsense they’re spewing about Obama and crush their ridiculous argument whatever it may be.

    No. “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” — US Constitution
    Obama is NO traitor!

    I’m really talking about the racism Obama is facing & how disgusting it is that the Tea Party is so focused on getting him out that they aren’t bothering with any actual issues.

    Dear neocons. Since you’re too lazy to research what the President said and are willing to blindly swallow whatever swill is written here without a moment of skepticism, Thank you for proving my point that neocons care nothing for the truth and are stupid, lazy, and incapable of ever considering anything that isn’t force-fed you by the great puppeteers here at Breitbart. Go ahead and remain in your cocoon of ignorance and racism. It’s very amusing to watch.

    Just admit it- you have an irrational hatred of Obama and the man could make it rain gold bricks out of the sky and you would still find some way to hate him for it. The man can’t even give a 4th of July speech celebrating America and the immigrants who made this country great without all you mentally ill mouth breathers twisting his words into something they weren’t and seeing false boogeymen. Just admit you are racists!

    Calling the POTUS a fraud seems to be the calling card for bigots andd racists like you!
    Obama inherited a sinking economy, I don’t like everything he has done, but I agree that he has more successes than failures. He has my vote. I just wish he would pull us out of Afghanistan. Anyone who calls Obama a failure is a lying racist!

    You clearly don’t understand anything about what makes a Muslim, never mind the fact that President Obama’s father was born a Christian (was actually an atheist when he married Obama’s mother) and then converted to Islam later.

    >Christianity HAS NO SUCH RULE!!!

        Gail… Apparently it is not Questionman who doesn’t know the real power behind TEA. I wonder if you are a Christian. If you are, what do you think Jesus would say about the Koch and the real TEA? Do some research on the Koch Family and FIND OUT FOR YOUR SELF what TEA really is.

Obama is a muslim and what about Isreal next the Tea Party is against Obamma look at Sarah Palin and what the Democrats did to her Inthe Constitution it says there will always be a Republican outcome look it up

    • macgyver1948

      Wow Questionman, your comment is fueled with anger but you speakith the truth and I agree with you. Years ago I wanted to believe the John Birch Society, the TEA Party forbearer, was primarily against those in government who weren’t totally for the big corporations, pretty exclusively. They hated President Eisenhower because Ike was for more fairness than that so JBS called Ike a Communist.

      I wanted to believe that it was just greedy business with the JBS, now the Tea Party ruled still by The Koch Klan, but I can’t. The real other color of the JBS/TEA is well know from when, in the 1960′s (TEA not conceived yet), put all kinds of money into fighting against Civil Rights.

      The Koch brothers, David and Charles (there is another but he isn’t so well know) took over for their greedy and bigoted dad.

      So why does the TEA Party hate Obama so much? Well, like Ike Obama wants more fairness for all of us. The fact that Obama is black is an added evil bonus for TEA.

      I have said this before so what the heck. When Romney speaks it is Koch voices that come out of his mouth. It looks like Romney needs an exorcism, LOL….

      I wonder how some TEA followers, those who claim to be religious Christians, feel about who they are supporting.

      Questionman, try not to pay mush mind to the Root. Maybe if enough people ignore him he will just take his puppet self and go away and he might realize how insignificant he really is. Also, hopefully when Obama is re-elected, Root will realize how much of a fool he is with his BS predictions.

        In 1832, the threat of nullification by States that opposed tariffs on imported goods came close to bringing about a civil war. Thirty years later as cries for the abolition of slavery reached a fever pitch the War Between the States would begin.

        Today, in the wake of the Supreme Court decision that found that the Affordable Health Care Act—Obamacare— is constitutional and thereby the law of the land. Republican Governors are lining up to say they will not obey it.

        Not only has President Obama and the Democrat Party imposed an enormously unpopular law on the nation, they have initiated a huge constitutional crisis.

        Nullification is a constitutional theory that gives an individual state the right to declare null and void any law passed by the United States Congress which the State deems unacceptable and unconstitutional.

        In a debate in the late 1700s, both James Madison and Thomas Jefferson, in the Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions (1798) came down on the side of nullification if a State concluded that the federal government had overstepped its limits of jurisprudence.

        In ruling that Obamacare cannot use the Commerce Clause as its justification, the Supreme Court kicked the Act back to Congress, ruling that it is a tax and that Congress has the right to place such taxes on the citizens of the nation.

        The Obama administration maintained that Obamacare was not a tax until the case was argued before the Court. It then conceded that it was.

        The least troublesome response is to wait for November to remove for office every Senator and Representative who voted for Obamacare and who is up for reelection along with Obama.

        The most troublesome response would reflect the crisis that occurred when Andrew Jackson was President. On December 11, 1832, Jackson issued a proclamation that he would use force to uphold the right of Congress to enact tariffs which were widely seen as a burden on the southern States. Several compromises ensued.

        Thus, President Obama has set the stage for a major constitutional crisis.

        He could, in theory, declare martial law to defend Obamacare and this is not just an idle threat because, as of this writing, several State Governors have already announced they will not enforce it.

        Florida’s Governor, Rick Scott, has declared his State will not comply with the overhaul of the nation’s health care system—its nationalization by the federal government.

        Earlier, the Missouri legislature passed a bill in its House of Representatives declaring Obamacare null and void for the second time. It would prohibit the establishment of an exchange without the consent by vote of the people of Missouri.

        In Louisiana, Gov. Bobby Jindal has declared his opposition to Obamacare as has Wisconsin’s Gov. Scott Walker, both of whom urged other States to refuse to implement the law.

        Just as South Carolina led the opposition during President Jackson’s time, Sen. Jim DeMint has called on “every governor to stop implementing the health care exchanges.”

        Despite the Supreme Court’s ruling that states can opt out of a Medicaid expansion, there is nothing Jindal and Walker can do to prevent health insurance exchanges from being set up in their States.

        As if President Obama has not already driven the nation’s economy to the brink of collapse and his administration has opposed enforcement of the Defense of Marriage Act, and has opposed Arizona’s efforts to secure its borders and its right to protect its citizens from illegal aliens, Obama has now brought about a crisis comparable to that which launched the Civil War.

        The current President has created a firestorm of opposition that initially led to the Tea Party movement and the 2010 midterm elections that returned power to the Republican Party in the House of Representatives. Major forces are emerging and aligning to stop Obamacare anyway they can.

        This is occurring as a case before a Florida court challenges Obama’s eligibility to be on that State’s ballot.

        Florida law is unique in that it gives the average voter greater freedom to challenge eligibility and fraud than other States.

        More than a hundred legal cases nationwide have been brought over his eligibility.

        The Constitution specifically states that the President must be “a natural born citizen” with both parents being citizens of the United States.

        Obama’s father was a citizen of Kenya.

        Buckle up, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

    The ancient Roman rhetoricians developed rules for their oratory. They began with “the exordium,” an emotional or ethical appeal to put the audience in a receptive mood. The “narratio” followed, a narrative of the events leading to the situation to be discussed and an explanation of their manner of treatment.

    The main body of their speech delivered the proof of their argument, confirming their conclusions and refuting their opponent’s claims. They developed techniques called “the praemunitio” and “the amplificatio,” which cleared away obstacles and amplified their case with a rhetorical flourish. They concluded with another appeal to the sympathies of their audience.

    These rules have been used throughout subsequent history. Today, the majority of our citizens no longer require proofs from our political class. They applaud any slogan that stirs their emotions, and they conveniently forget when a promise is not fulfilled. This has enabled our political leaders on either side of the spectrum to continue the policies and spending that undermine our liberties and our economy.

    Public education has been instrumental in the dumbing down of political speech.

    Beginning in the late 19th Century, our industrialists used their wealth and power to methodically dismantle traditional education and replace it with a progressive system based on the Prussian model.

    Rather than enlighten, education was redesigned as job training, a system to raise compliant citizens who always looked to the experts for answers.

    This schooling would become the central feature of their planned society with its planned economy, both necessary for our industrialists to maintain and multiply their wealth and power.

    Using the experiential discoveries of psychology, it’s taken a century to perfect today’s public indoctrination system.

    The unthinking emotionally-driven perpetually-dependent products of this schooling attest to the success of their method. Our politicians are the beneficiaries and no longer need sound arguments to justify their positions.

    Our political class also enjoys the advantages of a two-party system, which divides the people in two opposing camps, the “haves” and the “have-nots,” terms verbally engineered into the common vocabulary by the Left.

    On its simplest level, the Left appeals to the have-nots with promises of increasing governmental assistance to ease their sufferings under Capitalistic inequalities, while the Right appeals to the haves with promises of less taxes, less government, and more liberty.

    Each side has a receptive core that readily applauds when their emotions are aroused through simple sound bites and slogans. And when the promised benefits are not delivered, each side points the blame at their conniving opponents, arousing anger, further dividing our country, while engendering sympathy for their tireless benefactors.

    These techniques have been setting up the final solution. After we are irrevocably divided, we are ripe to be conquered.

    This false left right paradigm has successfully served each side over the years, as our government’s bureaucracy and power have continued to grow unchecked, and the inequalities between the haves and the have-nots have increased unabated. That is, until a few small groups on the Right no longer applauded.

    Rather than accept the status quo of continual broken promises, these tea-partiers and libertarian groups like the Campaign For Liberty have demanded accountability. They demanded a return to sound government not in the fairy tales of their fraudulent speeches, but in a reality darkened by a fiscally irresponsible federal government that continues to reach into all aspects of daily life, as it gobbles more power and throttles liberty.

    Yet, these small movements have been demonized from the start and are now blamed for bringing us to the brink of insolvency, something they alone seem concerned with preventing.

    In this respect, the rhetoric of the mass media is similar to that of our politicians – the truth is inconvenient to their agenda. Without the safeguards of an objective press, the status quo in Washington continues. Our debt gets deeper, our economy more mired, and our liberties more threatened. It matters little whether the Right or Left is in power. Our country continues along the path to insolvency and moral bankruptcy.

    The recent Debt Crisis illustrates the false paradigm. It was engineered under a Republican President with a massive bailout of big business, and it continued under the current Democratic Administration.

    These opposing camps have become hired mouthpieces without the will or inertia to do anything but the bidding of those who keep them in office, the international banking elites. If left unchecked, the US Dollar will continually weaken until it is replaced as the world’s reserve currency, which will ruin our economy and facilitate our merger into one-world-government.

    And still, the underlying causes of our debt crisis have not been addressed.

    We have both a spending and an entitlement crisis, as an unsustainable debt piles up.

    Yet, we hear the same rhetoric echoing from the halls of Washington.

    Both sides claim the other side won’t compromise and allow an equitable solution.

    While the Right wants to punish the poor with spending cuts and reward the rich with no new taxes, the Left wants to soak the rich with massive taxes and aid the poor with more spending.

    The so-called solution was demonized as a tea-party victory. Surprisingly, or perhaps not, these patriots didn’t celebrate because it is a mirage with the appearance of spending cuts in the face of massive spending increases.

    There was an interview with both Ann and Mitt recently. In it Ann said she feels “Obama’s entire strategy is to KILL MITT”. WOW, I wonder if she was told to say that. Anyway, on another site some one commented on that article and I returned his comment with a poem I wrote just for his comment. Here is his comment first and my poem following… To all a good night.
    Did that interview in one of their million dollar homes. I really feel the Romneys are one of us. Maybe we should meet and compare off shore secret accounts, how you made money on American workers pensions and shipped their jobs overseas, becoming an outsource pioneer of American jobs. Yes siree, you are looking out for me!
    The thing he misses more than most, as he says ”let them eat toast”… IS that when he speaks he misses the peaks and none who really listen feels his tweeks.

    He in no way a man of the people, well unless you are of the highest steeple.

    But as he knows us not, he thinks we miss “our” jobs get shot, as he deludes himself to us he is hot.

    But more than he knows, the less of we he see (((and as you just said of Mitt)))…Yes siree, you are looking out for me!

      The primary cause of most Off-shoring can be found by researching the egregious, over regulatatory policies of Agencies such as EPA, Department of Energy, USDA,FDA, ETC. ! While sound, efficient, commonsense regulation is very necessary, a large portion of these Agencies policies have nothing what so ever to do with the benifit to the people!
      Two cases in point; The Clean Air Act, on the surface a worthwhile idea, will soon require that we use only CFL lighting, at the same time regulations from the EPA drive the cost to manufacture these lamps to over 300% of what they can be produced for overseas. As a result there are ’0′ American manufacturers, these MANDATED lamps will need to be purchased from off-shore manufacturers !
      At the present time, with less than half of the Law reviewed, PPACA will require 180 new Boards, Commissions and Bureaus to administer. Over 13,00 pages of new regulations have been written to cover this 2700+ page Leviathan ! Current estimates are that over 14,000 new Government workers will need to be hired to manipulate this hugh mess, remember that we are operating at, or soon will be, a $16.4 Trillion deficit ! If PPACA is allowed to stand…Well You haven’t even seen off-shoring yet !

  • Pritty Brains

    More Republican lies corrected:

    #1 Republican distortion: “The President promised he wouldn’t raise taxes on the middle class by a penny with this health care law. Well, that’s been proven false now.”

    The facts: President Obama has cut taxes by $3,600 for the average middle-class family over the last three and a half years, and the Republicans fought him nearly every step of the way. From cutting taxes for every working American through the Making Work Pay and payroll tax cuts, to the American Opportunity Tax Credit which gives up to a $10,000 tax credit to help families pay for four years of college, the President has put more money in the pockets of middle-class Americans.

    Here’s another fact: Obamacare includes the largest middle-class tax cut for health care in history. According to the independent Congressional Budget Office, 19 million people will receive tax credits — worth an average of about $4,800 each — to help afford health care. These tax credits will finally put health insurance within reach for millions of American families. In short, Obamacare cuts taxes for middle-class families. Period.

    Around 1 percent of people — those who can afford to buy coverage but instead choose to opt out, shifting their costs to the rest of us — will pay a penalty. The Supreme Court acknowledged yesterday that this penalty will be charged through the tax code — but that doesn’t change its purpose (to ensure everyone who can afford insurance buys it) or its effect (to lower costs for everyone). It’s also the same policy Mitt Romney implemented when he signed health reform in Massachusetts. For many folks in Massachusetts, the penalties under Romney’s reform were even bigger. In fact, here’s a video of him extolling the virtues of his penalty.

    #2 Romney distortion: Romney said Obamacare meant “a larger and larger government, more and more intrusive in your life — separating you and your doctor.”

    The facts: Totally dishonest. In fact, this is one of the most dishonest claims in American politics. First, this isn’t about government. Obamacare builds on and improves the nation’s private health care system.

    Second, here’s what it fixes. Before Obamacare, insurance companies had free rein to arbitrarily cap and cancel coverage, and they could waste our premiums on overheads and big CEO bonuses. With Obamacare, there will now be clear rules of the road to give patients and doctors more control over their health care. These rules will make sure that you and your doctor — not your insurance company, and certainly not a Washington bureaucrat — have control over your health.

    #3 Romney distortion: “Obamacare also means that for up to 20 million Americans, they will lose the insurance they currently have.”

    The facts: Outright false. If you like the insurance you have, you can keep it. The only thing that’s changed is that your coverage is stronger. Here’s how:

    — If you had a lifetime limit (and about 60 percent of employer-based plans did), it’s been lifted.
    — If you have a child under the age of 26, they can stay on your plan.
    – Insurance companies can no longer discriminate against children with preexisting conditions.
    – Starting in 2014, insurance companies will no longer be able to deny anyone insurance based on preexisting conditions, helping up to 129 million Americans get the care they need.
    — Insurance companies will no longer be able to charge women more than men for the exact same coverage.
    — 54 million Americans already have access to better preventive services, free of charge.
    — And if you get sick, your insurance company can’t drop your coverage, and if they deny you a treatment, the law makes sure you have a chance to appeal.

    Republicans who tell you Obamacare won’t let you keep your plan if you like it are lying to you — and it is shameful.

    #4 Republican distortion: “Costs are going up.”

    The facts: Health care costs have been going up for decades — that’s one of the reasons President Obama fought to pass the Affordable Care Act. Obamacare makes targeted changes to hold costs down. The President started by taking on the insurance companies. As he said yesterday, the law ensures that insurance companies spend 80% of your premium dollars on your health care, not administrative costs or CEO bonuses. If they don’t follow that rule, they have to send you a rebate. This month, more than 12 million Americans will receive over $1 billion in rebate checks, and we’re all seeing lower premiums because of it.

    The law also takes on waste in our health care system. Let’s take just one example. We spend billions of dollars every year treating people for infections they get while they are in the hospital. The health care law helps hospitals take simple but necessary steps to prevent infections. These types of reforms will save up to $35 billion and 60,000 lives.

    #5 Romney distortion: “Obamacare adds trillions to our deficits and to our national debt.”

    The facts: Wrong again. The Affordable Care Act cuts the deficit by over $100 billion during the first ten years. In the following decade, it cuts the deficit by another $1 trillion. Not only is the Romney campaign misleading people about the President’s deficit plan, they won’t tell the truth about their own. Romney would grow the deficit by as much as $5 trillion by giving tax cuts that favor millionaires and billionaires while taking away health care benefits that people rely on. We can’t let them get away with it.

    I’m going to be perfectly clear: Mitt Romney has promised that if elected our next president, he will repeal Obamacare on Day One in office. Immediately after the Supreme Court ruled to uphold health care reform yesterday, Romney reminded his supporters: “When I’m President…Obamacare will be over.”

    If Romney gets his way, 105 million Americans could see their lifetime caps reinstated, and more than 3.1 young Americans could be booted off their parent’s plan and could again be without insurance. Up to 17 million children with preexisting conditions could, once again, be at risk of being denied coverage, and insurance companies could once again drop you if you get sick.

    Really, you GOPers need to listen up and get out while the getting’s good. Your political leaders are blatantly lying to you and it’s a shame you are eating it all up without doing any research on your own. Remember Gail is going around screeching “KARMA!!!!!” And she’s right, karma is a mean /b/i/t/c/h/ with a long sword and she’s coming after you liars! *laffs*

          Why are you from in this wide world of ours? i am from Florida the drugs state if you think politics are bad this is horrible

          • Pritty Brains

            I’m in Orlando… But on my way out… moving to Oregon. I don’t like Florida. It boasts three seasons: Summer, tourist and hurricane. When you’ve seen one palm tree, you’ve seen ‘em all. And the biggest hill is a fireant hill… not to mention how the humidity makes it seem as though you’re being Water Boarded each time you walk outside.

            In addition, I don’t like Gov Rick Scott, or his policies… and of course, the Zimmerman trial, which is a laff… the Stand Your Ground law needs to be amended.

            So, hello Oregon… here I come!

          • http://yahoo Gail

            i am going home to Vermont for awhile. I live in Hudson Florida. You will like oregon my daughter lived there for awhile but moved back to Colorado. This is my email stay in touch. As far as the politicians it is hard to pass judgement when all of them have skeletons in there closets and what they will come up with everyday is hard to swallow.

      • opar5

        Pretty Brains, hate to offend, but the Zimmerman case isn’t about “Stand Your Ground,” but is a classic case of self-defense – supported by all the physical evidence and actual witnesses. The trial itself is political, fueled by the race-baters Jackson, Sharpton and a number of black legislators, else there would have been a Grand Jury called to indict on the evidence. By all accounts, Zimmerman is a decent man, even tutoring black kids, and NOT the “white Mexican” he’s been called. Note the furor ending when they found Zimmerman has a black grandfather? But the politics now rule and the prosecutor needs a “win.”

        • Pritty Brains

          I beg to differ, Opar, the case most certainly IS about the Stand Your Ground law… Zimmerman was a self appointed vigilante… he took the law into his own hands when he didn’t heed the police when they advised him to let them deal with the matter. He profiled Trayvon and then stalked him.

          If he had stayed with his vehicle as he was told to do, this whole scenario would not have happened and he would not be in this situation today. And he sure as hell didn’t help matters any by lying on the stand, having his wife lie for him etc etc etc etc… He has a past record of violence and has been known to be a racist.

          Frankly I believe he was thinking about the Stand Your Ground law when be bought his gun… I believe he was thinking about that law when he appointed himself as a neighborhood watch capt. I believe he was thinking about that law when he disregarded the police when they told him to stay with his truck and he chose to stalk instead. And I believe he was thinking about that law when he pulled the trigger. Because he believed he could get away with murder.

          But he won’t.

    Interesting that no one seems aware of Obama’s choice of lecture material he espoused to college students: “The Cloward-Piven Strategy of Orchestrated Crisis, to overextend and bring down Government.” This is a quite reasonable topic for one born into Islam (communism with a god-head), first educated in Indonesian Madrassas and raised in a communist-favoring family. In college, his friends called him “the little Marxist.” What kind of “Christian” sits in a pew for 20 years and cannot remember his pastor’s sermons – even the most firey? Islam has a name for it: “taqiyya,” meaning Divine deceit to advance Islam. Seems to be working Ignore the rhetoric and tell yourself exactly what he’s done and has occurred during his administration that hasn’t weakened the “great Satan” or the “little Satan” (Israel). Frances Fox Piven and communist mentor Frank Marshall Davis (a father-figure in his teens) should be proud!

  • matthew onyebuchi

    please gentlemen and ladies, give president Obama chance to do his work.YOU ARE DISTRACTING HIM. With GOD behind him he will serve for another FOUR YEARS COME NOVEMBER 6th 2012.

      That’s been the plans of the Republican Party since the day he was inaugurated… and for the last four years that’s what they have focused on… bringing down the president. In the meanwhile they have all but destroyed this country.

      Obama has my entire extended family’s vote, as well as a mass of friends… He’ll win his second term and the Greedy Old Party will have to back down and start, at the very least, pretending they care about this country.

        If you and your extended family can’t see that everything that prick has done since he took office is to destroy this country, then there’s just no hope for you. When do your food stamps and welfare check get delivered each month. I’d like to releive you of them ang give them to some needy family that deserves them, not just some jerks wanting freebie handouts because they’re too lazy to work. Vote him in again and then you can explain to you children and grandchildren how you were part of the problem that took this country down!! YOU JUST CAN’T FIX STUPID!!!

        • macgyver1948

          DaveG.. I couldn’t resist. I read what Pritty Brains posted and no where in what she says does she include that she and her family are receiptiants of food stamps and welfare, certainly not in her post that you are responding to. Do you know them or are you so typical TEA and ASSume so much about the other side of the aisle? Maybe since you ASSume so much of us that is the reasons you guys are so very wrong about us so often.

          You are so right, DaveG, about this one thing – “YOU JUST CAN’T FIX STUPID!!!” and if ASSuming is the primary method you employ to think it will never be fixed for you. It is so amazing how so often TEA ASSumes about those who do not agree with them.

          TEA, with Koch rule, will turn us into The Corporate States Of America. I want smaller government too, with less intrusion on my life, but you won’t get it from TEA. With them you will be trading Big Government for Big Corporate Government. Do you want to “FIX your STUPID”? Stop ASSuming, stop listening to TEA without finding out for yourself and think for yourself.

          • http://yahoo Gail

            You keep talking about TeA you should be talking about all these parties if it was me I would get rid of them all, they all have the mis fortune of siver spoons in there mouths and brat bringing up . It is everyones choice what they listen to and everyones choice who they vote for thats what makes this country likeable somewhat..

          • DaveG

            Uh, oh Gail. You sound like the typical leftist that doesn’t like the Tea Party. I haven’t figured out why you people are so against them. They are against the following Obama accomplishments, so I’m assuming that you approve of all the following:

            this government spending money we don’t have, advertising for people to get more food stamps (so they will vote for them),being against purging the voting roles of dead people and illegals (so they can vote for anyone on the left), having a President who added 5 trillion to the deficit in just over 3 years….that’s just over THREE years (after in 2008 chastising Bush as being unpatriotic when he added 4 trillion to the deficit in 8………that’s EIGHT years……the largest deficit in the history of the United States (which your children, grandchildren or great grandchildren will never pay off), having unemployment over 8%, having the worst housing situation since the Great Depression, having a President who is raping the Constitution and every word coming out of his mouth is racist (again so the blacks will vote for him), having a President who picks and chooses which laws that he will enforce and then suing states who go ahead and enforce the Federal Laws that he won’t enforce, having a President who won’t take responsibility for any of his failures (which are too numerous to mention here), having a President who is the most anti-business President in the history of the United States and then has the nerve to lie and say he’s for the working class (watch it, his lips are moving), having a President who accuses anyone who opposes him as being racist, having a Attorney General who is “above the law” because he’s black (but that’s not racist on his part) and didn’t prosecute blacks who intimidated white voters at the polls (I wonder if whites had done that to blacks if they would have been prosecuted………… bet your sweet butt they would have been………..within about 30 seconds), having idiots like Nancy Pelosi stand up before the vote on Obama-doesn’t care-healthcare and say, “We need to pass this bill so we can find out what’s in it” (What’s wrong with reading a bill before you pass it????????), bailing out GM and Chrysler with the help of the Democratically controlled House and Senate and then having a President that brags about saving GM (I’ll bet you didn’t see the video of the CEO of GM addressing a stock-holders meeting recently where he stated that over 70% of General Motors production is coming out of China………way to go Obama…… saved GM for China with our tax-payers’ money!!), and having a President who continues to lose our tax-payers’ money in his Green Agenda companies (who are typically Obama supporters). Wow!! Let’s get some more investment advice from Obama……he’s running at about a 1% success rate!!!!

            Now, anybody who thinks that Obama hasn’t accomplished anything since he took office is out of their mind!. Of course, all of the accomplishments listed above are all Bush’s fault.

            I could go on for another 10 pages at the least, but if you don’t get the picture by now, YOU NEVER WILL……..THERE’S NO HOPE FOR YOU. But, can you go over each of the Obama accomplishments listed above and say you approve of what he’s done since he took office???????????????????????????????????????????? If you say approve of all of this, I wouldn’t want to be standing in front of you when you said it. I wouldn’t want to be killed by your nose going through my body.

            Now, all of this being said, let’s be fair…..we want to give him a chance. We need to give Obama another 4 years to correct all of Bush’s screw-ups

            I’m not a member of the Tea Party, but I’d vote for a rattle snake before I’d vote for Obama and watch him continue to intentionally screw this country.

          • http://yahoo Gail

            Dave I am an Independent voter and I vote for who I want. I flood Congressmen and Senators letters all the time. I am a true believer in the sovoienty of the states. I believe that all men in office have the love of money and power. This is my motto God Family and Country, and the men who hold office today I see control power and money so you figure it out!!!!!???

          • macgyver1948

            Gail …. I do not think The GOP is bad, just misguided by those who pay big bucks for them. We need opposing views in Government but I have problems with how things are working.

            As you say all parties have their problems but I think people should know the power behind what they are backing. I actually fear TEA because of Koch and their family history. They come from the John Birch Society, their family money was a major financial influence in the JBS’s creation and workings. The Koch money helped them fight against Civil Rights in the 1960s and they fought so hard for corporate dominance. So TEA scares the hell out of me.

            With that said I feel we need a major over haul of our government. No so much The Constitution, I love the thing. I feel some things should be added but that I will touch on in a bit.

            We need so much Congressional Reform. There is so much not working right from both sides of the aisle. There is a lot we can do and I have a list of reforms that have been passed around which would very much help. For example term limits for Congress. I’m for making all in government subject to the same laws they impose on us. Well, like Social Security and reasonable retirement for all in government . In a way, and just in a way, I would like to see all levels of government, from city/town to state to the federal levels, to be treated as employees are in the private sector. When someone is elected to a city/town counsel he/she is treated to a retirement program fitting that position and if he/she moves up in government it is the same retirement program and not accumulative for each position and level. There are other things but thats enough for now on gov pension. But if you lose an election there should be nothing accumulating until you get back in.

            Back to the constitution. Historically speaking I see so much crap in
            gov. I see corruption and influence and conflict of interest especially since the Civil War. I know the founders addressed two important issues but maybe they felt it wouldn’t get as bad as it has so they left some things out of the Constitution and I feel they should be added. There are two things that have similar affect/result but they might seem like different issues.

            One was Corporations. Many of the founders, especially Thomas Jefferson and some others, feared the effect corporate money would have on the elected. They did not want corporations to have person power. So, Romney lied to us when he said “Corporations are people too”. TJ and some others wanted “Separation Of Corporations And State” because they saw much of that from British Corporations and their controlling influences on colonial politicians before the revolution. I guess they were side tracked with the war and creating government that didn’t make it in. But we can clearly see how right they are and the fact that Corporations, especially big ones, are buying our politicians through their campaign investments, etc. The founders were very wise about that for today so Id like to see “Separation Of Corporations And State” added…

            For similar reasons I would like to see “Separation Of Church And State” added. It isn’t just money that can buy a politicians influence.

            I bet the Koch’s would hate these. They are fighting to eliminate all government control over corporations – including but not limited to The end of the EPA so there are no restrictions on how a company does business regardless of how it hurts the planet and people. They want to eliminate minimum wage (after all Payroll is the easiest expense to control), Social Security and all other expenses the corporation should not be straddled with by their definition. The GOP is fighting to get all that the Koch’s want for the corporations. How do we who aren’t a big corporation/very wealthy win if they win? I so much feel the founders would not like this TEA or how we evolved since their time.

          • http://yahoo Gail

            Men and women both are evil we were given free will by the creator what you do with this free will will determine what kind of person you are? You talk about koch what about Bill Gates what about Warren Buffet? Movie stars and there non reality state are the biggest bothersome people in Politics? You have made a sound voice in your politics we do need change what we really need is all these men out of office people local state offices right straight through to the top. You realize that the states could put a complete halt to the Federal Govn? I love you may friend you are my brother and we all have political views.

          • macgyver1948

            Hi Gail… thank you for your responses. I agree with you that we need to clean house, all branches and many of the Agencies as in the FDA, not eliminate, clean. That’s another story for another time but we will never be able to fix the problems with the minds that have created them. WOW I wish I made up that old cliché, lol…

            You mention Warren Buffet. Well, him too I suppose but I liked the concept of the Buffet Plan, even with some of its flaws, and I wrote an article about it and HuffingtonPost published it. It didn’t work because Congress didn’t vote for it and I suppose that is because so many in Congress are very wealthy and it would help only the UN-wealthy.

            You mentioned men and women are evil and the Free Will thing. Because of Free Will men and women choose to be either good or evil. Free Will is the reason I do not believe in fate because fate takes God’s gift away and I do not believe that. We make the choices for what we do and we will pay either way for them. God knows what he is doing and it is also partly the Free Will thing that I believe we are not born with sin and partly because God strongly implies that in the Hebrew bible. We make our own good and evil as we choose after we are old enough to be responsible.

            With that said politicians have done some good and a lot of evil over the last couple of centuries. Many of them are paid to do their good or evil and that is why we need to clean house but also to make sure the new guys know we can easily get rid of them too if they do not work in a good ways for us. But we have to mean, and always back it up, it or we will get new crops of not-working-for-us greedy and on the take politicians all over again.

            We also need more than one party with opposing and like views but all parties in politics must work for “We The People” and not just the corporations. The Founders feared the corporations and with good reason as we have seen for so many decades. Thomas Jefferson, among several of the others, said Corporations should not be given people status. Corporations do not deserve votes. I see it as they having two votes if Romney gets his way, their personal ones and as a corporations. One heart beat, one vote and since corporations have no heart beat there ya go. The founders feared the huge money influence on politicians so they wanted and said “Separation Of Corporations And State” but it never got put in. I bet if the Founders have been watching our political evolution since their time they would wish they did put it in the constitution as well as seeing the need to put “Separation Of Church And State” in the Constitution as well for many of the same reasons. As I said before it isn’t just money that can corrupt political decision making in a free and democratic society.

            That’s enough for now. Thanks again…:-).

            I have no doubt that the only things you have heard about the Tea Party is what the Left and all of Obama’s mouthpieces haver said about them. Let’s see…….they’re racist, they spit on blacks, they’re for protecting the rich, etc. Why don’t you take your own advice and don’t blindly follow Obama………….after 3 1/2 years of total destruction of this country. If you like what he’s done to this country…………vote for him again. I’ll say it again, if you have children, you can explain to them and your grandchildren why you voted for this guy and helped him destroy this country. They’ll be so proud of you!!!

            I’m not saying that Romney is the perfect solution, but we absolutely know what we’re getting with Obama…………he’s proven it ever since he took office……………..a lying, racist, arrogant jerk who said, (and I quote) “If I can’t turn this country in one term, then I don’t deserve a second.” Oh, wow!!! Did he lie???????? No…..”God”………oops, sorry, Obama doesn’t lie. I’m not willing to believe him this time after seeing all the lies he’ already told. We have at least of a CHANCE with Romney!!

You saying you have no doubt proves you have nothing to go on. How can you know anything about people you do not know at all and say you have “no doubt” about anything as you go ASSUMING your life away.

            Did you have fun throwing all that crap at me? I hope you did because there is no substance to you. I very much do not have to explain any of the stuff you say to my grand kids. Talk about a lying jerk. Do you listen to Romney all? When I hear him speak I hear the Koch voices come out of his mouth because they own him with all the money they threw at him. How well do you think Romneycare worked for the people of Mass when he was Gov or about the so many jobs he out sourced while Gov and as a Bain major investor kisser. HE will do all that again as President. He will do as Koch says and that is do all he can to help the corporations over the rest of us.

            I do not think Obama is perfect but the things you and the other haters say about his are mostly fantasy…. Obama needs help not your hate. Aw what is the use, you are programmed to hate him.

In the last 3 years I’ve had grown men break down and cry because of all the crap he’s doing to this economy. So, MR. RESEARCH MAN get your butt out in the business world and hear it from the independent business people. They are “scared to death.” You are, no doubt are not an independent business man. Post your name and phone number so I can start handing it out to them so they can call you. Then you can assure them that “Obama has their backs”, and they have nothing to worry about. If you like what he’s doing, why don’t you get a head jump on the situation and move to Greece, Italy, Spain, etc. You can go ahead and riot now with all the people other there who are upset because they’re not getting their freebies.

            If Obama gets in again………….THIS COUNTRY IS TOAST!! CUZ, YOU JUST CAN’T FIX STUPID!!!!

      Dear Matthew, I am sorry to have to tell you this, but everything Barrack Husane Obama does is geared toward Western Europe style Socialism. In other words, everything he does goes against everything that America was originally founded on. We are fortunate enough to live in this wonderful country, which is unique in that, it is not governed by Socialism, or at least it was not until Barrack Husane Obama came along and fooled so many people with his smooth talking bull(cant say it). So, I am sorry, but I will not give him a chance to work. If you like Socialism, please move away to a country that already has it. Don’t try to bring it here. Do you not like freedom? Please, I ask all of you who know nothing about the Constitution of the USA, take some time to learn about it. Barrack Husane Obama treats our Constitution as though it means nothing. Consider for a moment that Barrack Husane Obama is working to destroy this country from the inside out, because that is exactly what is taking place. He has done a tremendous amount of damage already. If you truly love this country, you owe it to yourself to learn why it is such a great place to live. If we allow Barrack Husane Obama to destroy America, where will we go? It all comes down to this – America or Barrack Husane Obama – You can’t have both. DON’T GET FOOLED AGAIN!

    Amazing how easily indoctrinated Obama followers are. He is little more than a cult of personality created by his corporate masters and the media. By screaming racism when anyone objects to his plundering of the US economy and particularly the middle class, Obama & co expect everyone to get in lockstep. Thankfully there are still clearheaded patriots who see through this very obvious takeover attempt by those in power who want the US to fail.

Barack Hussein Obama is a Socialist, and Dictator wannabe, and you are too foolish to see it. I guarantee you that Barack Hussein Obama does not give a rats a** about you. His only goal is to fulfill the dreams from his father. And, that is to bring America down in the world. Barack Hussein Obama has a nice smile and he gives a great speech. He has the ability to make a stinky pile of dung look, and smell like a rose to a weak mind. He is a con man, and a very good one too.

Can you believe act 421 which is a Treaty Obama intends to sign on July 27th with the United Nations concerning this Countries rights this is an infringement on the people of this country which to me is unlawful and using marchial law if the healthcare act is not accepted where is this man from and where are all these politicans from along with the Supreme Ct.??????

        What, exactly, are you talking about? Please post a link to the document that Obama is supposedly going to sign.

      That one man has the left wing mouthpieces (CNN, NBC, ABC, etc.)behind him. And there’s too many STUPID people in the United States. If they see or hear something on TV, the IT HAS TO BE TRUE. Remember that Obama hasn’t taken responsibility for ANY of his failures. HE’S BLAMED EVERYTHING ON BUSH…..and the left wing mouthpieces have yelled it from the hightest mountain top. SO,IT HAS TO BE TRUE. We have too many people who have the “take care of me” syndrom and are willing to settle fro handouts. Just like the people in Greece, Spain, Italy, etc. who have the same mentality, the “take care of me” people will take to the streets and riot when the money runs out just as they have done in Europe. Obama will still be yelling, “IT’S BUSH’S FAULT!!” And the dummies in the streets will still be cussing Bush. Cuz God (Obama) wouldn’t lie

      He told a whopper when he won the election. He said, “If I can’t fix the problems we have in one term, then I don’t deserve a second one.” My question is: Why’s he running for a second????????? He says, “Vote me in again, and I’ll fix it this go-round.” Sorry, I feel we have at least a chance with Romney………We know what Obama is all about! Hey, I’ll vote for the convict in prison in Texas who got 40% of the vote in the North Carolina primary against Obama………he’s a crook, but he would at least admit it. Obama will never admit ANYTHING where he’s lied, cheated, or just plain screwed the country out of!!
      But, he’ll give Bush all the credit for his failures…………..still after 3 1/2 years!!!


      • tlgeer


        Except that he hasn’t.

        I have some questions, too.

        The GOP in Congress has voted 30 times to repeal the ACA, and they have lost every time. Why would they think that this time it will be different, and shouldn’t they be doing more than focusing on the ACA? As our elected officials, they should be taking care of business, not attempting to out maneuver our President. It is up to the candidates to convince the public to vote for them. Congress is supposed to be working for ALL of us, not just the ones they agree with.

        Why haven’t they?

        • daveG

          I hope you’re last statement that you were talking about BOTH sides. The thing that I give the Democrats the most credit for is that when they want something, they go after it with a vengeance. Their idea of compromise is for the Republicans to give them EVERYTHING they want and “fold like a cheap suit.” So, if you notice, when a deadline on a vote approaches, the Democrats are screaming that the crummy Republicans won’t negotiate and are causing gridlock. The left wing mouth pieces (CNN, NBC, ABC, etc.) say the same thing, “The Republicans are causing gridlock in Washingto because they won’t negotiate.”……and the stupid Americans believe it because it was on TV and the President said it………….SO,IT HAS TO BE TRUE!!! The Republicans, I assume, don’t want to be the reason that there is gridlock, so they ALWAYS end up folding and give in to the Democrats. THE DEMOCRATS KNOW THIS, SO WHY SHOULD THEY NEGOTIATE??? This happens time and time again!! Case in point: Every time raising the debt ceiling has come up in the last 3 years, the Republicans have folded. I seem to remember when Obama was running for President that he publically chastised Bush for wanting to raise the debt ceiling, and called Bush unpatriotic. Answer this: How many times since Obama took office has the debt ceiling been raised????? However, when Obama does it numerous times, it’s not unpatriotic, right????? There’s a different set of rules for the Democrats!! Another case in point: The transportation bill that was just passed included the Keystone Pipeline project in it. Obama and the Democrats kept yelling how important that this bill be passed. They kept saying that the Republicans wouldn’t negotiate. Obama had publically said the if the Keystone project were in the bill, he would veto it. I guess the Transportation Bill wasn’t THAT important. So, at the last possible moment, Boehner, McConnell,and the other yellow bellied, chicken crap Republicans “negotiated” and folded AGAIN!!!! WOW, what a surprise!!! They should have left the Keystone project in the bill and forced that scumbag Obama to sign it (if it were so important) or veto it. By signing it with Keystone in it, hundred of thousands of jobs would be created (North Dakota is drilling for oil and has a teriffic boom going just like Alaska back in the 80′s………..3% unelployment, housing industry exploding, tons of middle class people making a lot of money). But, the people who would rather receive their food stamps and welfare didn’t go up to North Dakota to work……they stayed home checking their mail box!!! But, had Obama signed the bill with the Keystone project in it, it would start this country on the road to oil independence, created jobs and lowered the unemployment rate (which has been kept over 8% only because of Obama’s “creative accounting.” Everyone who’s quit looking for a job has been taken out of the mix!! Keep them in the mix and the unployment rate is around 12+%…..But he’s “God” so he can do whatever he wants and the stupid people of the U.S. buy into his lies) But no, Obama would have lost face with his left wing wackos had he signed it. They would rather keep this country dependent on foreign oil, and keep flushing our taxpayers’ money down the toilet with “Green” agenda “INVESTMENTS” that continue to fail time and time again. We should be letting private businesses take all the risk in developing GREEN stuff and not blowing taxpayers’ money………But, what the heck……….we’ll just print more money….we have a lot of ink and paper!! Are you aware that Obama has loaned millions of dollars to China for their “GREEN” agenda. CHINA???? The country we owe the most money to????? We’re loaning them money that we borrowed from them?????? The Chinese are laughing their butts off on this one!!! Why don’t any one of you left wing wacko’s try explaining this one with a straight face. We’re “loaning” Hugo Chavez in Venenzula millions to help them drill offshore down there and we’ll never see a drop of that oil………Chavez hates our guts!!!

          But, keep remembering…………ALL OF THIS B.S. THAT OBAMA HAS DONE……………………….IT’S BUSH’S FAULT!!!!

          Vote him in again cuz…………YOU AIN’T SEEN NOTHING YET. HE’S JUST GEARING UP!

        • daveG

          You caught me. No, Obama hasn’t blamed EVERYTHING on Bush. He didn’t blame getting Bin Laden on Bush. He took full credit for that. And then the left said that in a
          re-election ad that Romney wouldn’t have had the nerve to make that call. Oh, well……their lips are moving!!!! If Obama had listened to “Biarea of the Mouth” Biden telling him to not do it, and hadn’t sent the troops in to get him after all of the intel that the that had been gathered on the situation, and all of the military people telling him to give the order, when it got out that Obama had backed down………………..he would have been in deep crap. ANY PRESIDENT that has half a brain would have given the order…It was a “no brainer.”……even for Obama!!! But, you’re right he did take full credit for this and blame Bush which is surprising because I heard that Michelle said that he talks in his sleep. She said that he keeps screaming, “IT’S BUSH’S FAULT!!! iT’S BUSH’S FALULT!!! IT’S BUSH’S FAULT!!! IT’S BUSH’S FAULT!!! IT’S BUSH’S FAULT!!!”

          I also get a kick out of Obama stopping that terrible torture waterboarding. It’s so inhumane!!! But, he has no problem what-so-ever personally giving the order to take out a terroist and anybody else that’s nearby with a drone. I’ll bet if we gave them a choice that they would choose waterboarding. But, we all know that “Allah” (Obama) has the power and ability to personally decide on life and death of anyone who crosses him…………………….and we all thought that it was just typical Chicago, thug politics.

          Hey, dummies!!! Vote him again, then remember that when the crap finishes hits the fan that YOU and the rest of the weak-brain lefties who can’t look at the situation and make a decision on your own without the left telling you how to think, are responsible for the downfall of this country. Then you can get back on this web site and apologize for your stupidity!!!! But, it’s not in your character to admit you screwed up!!! You’ll be yelling, “IT’S BUSH’S FAULT!!! iT’S BUSH’S FALULT!!! IT’S BUSH’S FAULT!!! IT’S BUSH’S FAULT!!! IT’S BUSH’S FAULT!!!” (A TRUE OBAMMAN!!!)

          But if he does get in again and turns this whole thing around (and I pray that he does, but there’s not a snowballs chance in hell of that happening) , I PROMISE YOU THAT I WILL BE TICKLED TO DEATH TO GET BACK ON THIS WEB SITE AND ADMIT I WAS WRONG!! You see, that’s the difference between the non-character of the left and the character of the right! I have made some mistakes in the past……….one time I thought I was wrong, but I was actually right…….gotcha!!!

  • Tom Tee

    You are not very smart are you mr root? Have you noticed GE’s profits and all the record profits of business? Republican policies are creating plenty of jobs in China and India. Mean while they BLOCK EVERY ATTEMPT BY THE PRESIDENT TO CREATE JOBS IN THE UNITED STATES!!!!!

    • daveG

      If you will remember, one of Obuttma’s Czars, CEO of GE, (the “Jobs Czar”) moved GE to China………..did you say, “RECORD PROFITS OF GE??? GONE TO CHINA……, I’m glad he’s looking after our jobs!!! GREAT PICK, OBUTTMA!! And recently the CEO of GM addressed a stock holders’ meeting and said (and I quote, I saw the video), “70% of GM’s production comes from China……..this after Obuttma “invested” billions to bail out GM with our tax-payers’ money………Thank you Mr. Obuttma………you saved GM for China!!! And, you say that those “Wascally Wepublicans” have blocked Obuttma from creating jobs. Are you an idiot, or what………sorry, stupid question. The President (doesn’t matter which party he belongs to) doesn’t create jobs!! He can help create the situation where jobs can be created. In other words cut taxes for everyone (this doesn’t mean that the 50% of the people who don’t pay taxes get more money given to them), issue oil drilling permits in areas where there is lots of oit and gas just sitting there (right now, North Dakota is like Alaska was when they were building the pipe line…..this because Obuttma couldn’t find a way to stop the drilling (it’s on private land) they have3% unemployment, booming businesses and private citizens are making a ton of money………..and of course Obuttma keeps taking credit for the increase in oil drilling (again, he couldn’t stop it, but he’ll take credit for it and the mush brain Democrats who keep drinking the cool ade……..keep believing him………..BECAUSE HE SAID IT………..HEY, DUMMIES,HIS LIPS ARE MOVING………LIE, after LIE, after LIE!!!

      If you’re the typical Democrat, and I’ll bet you are (your looking for the government to take care of you and your family forever. Hey, I just got it!!! If Obuttma is defeated and Romney helps to turn around the unemployment by doing the right things, then your and a lot of the other lazy slugs who don’t want to work (it’s a lot more fun sitting on the couch watching re-runs of Okra, isn’t it?) would first have to admit that you were wrong, which isn’t in the vocabulary of any die-hard Democrats (IT’S ALL BUSH’S FAULT!!)………would have to go to work……………darn those “Wascally Wepublicans” making it possible for people to go back to work instead of being dependent on the government for everything.
      Don’t worry. You can Tevo Okra and watch it when you get home from work!!

      You also need to remember one thing…………..the things that Obuttma is trying his best to instill in this country are the same things that are now in Greece, Italy, Spain, ect. HOW’S THAT BEEN WORKING FOR THEM???? And when the money runs out (as it has in Europe) you and, the rest of the Obuttma believers, will be the first to take to the streets because the government cuts off your money…… it doesn’t have! THE MONEY HAS TO RUN OUT!!! The people that the government keeps raising taxes on will vacate this country…….just as GM and GE have done……….these were Obuttma’s projects…….not Bush’s!!

      You just can’t turn around people who want, and demand a “free lunch.” And there ain’t no free lunch!! If Obuttma gets in there again, you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. Of course, you won’t admit that Obama took down this country (it’s not in your nature), but will keep saying…………………IT’S BUSH’S FAULT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      You know, if I had bought all of Obuttma’s, lies and failures……..oops, sorry, Bush’s failures…………..after seeing the miserable job Obuttma’s done (after all his lies) since he took office, I think that I would “Google” Jim Jones’ recipe for some great tasting cool ade, and go drink about a gallon of it……… make sure it worked.

  • marie heinemann

    To all the people who think we who love America and would like it to stay free, should read Thomas Pane’s common Sense”. Obama;s America sounds a lot like socialiam to me.I am 79 yrs old I have seen what socialist is.

    • tlgeer

      Really? When was this, and under what conditions?

      • macgyver1948

        Tlgeer  … I am curious… Most governments over the course of history was some variation of Socialism. The basic and general definition from the dictionary being – ”Socialism – social or organization based on government control of the production and distribution of goods”.

        Here in America there has been this to some degree with regulations for the purpose of fairness and interstate transfer of goods since we became a country.

        Socialism varies in its degree of humanity from the far right to the far left in its dispensing of Socialism – or how it runs things. The more we go toward the extremes at each end the less fairness we seem to get. It all seems as we get closer to the extremes, and further from the middle of the road, the more unfair it becomes to the general population.

        Examples of extremes, the far right and Adolf Hitler reorganized National Socialists and encouraged the assimilation of other radical right-wing groups. Although Hitler believed in private ownership those with that ownership had to be on Hitler’s “love list”. Fair huh? On the fat left we have Communism. We here in the US, as to how it has been here, is some where in the middle. Obama is somewhere in the middle.

        My question to you is, since you say “…I have seen what socialist is” what forms of socialism have you personally experienced that you oppose? I have experienced one extreme only 2nd hand being American born. As a young kid I listened to stories from old relatives, after they came here from Europe, with damn tattoo-ed numbers on their arms and their stories were so real to me then and they still are now. I do not see any of it in Obama but there are factions in this country who want to make us all that here. What I see is a lot of programmed hate for Obama.

        • tlgeer

          I agree with you. In researching the town and city records of the pre- and early US, they quite plainly show that they took care of those that could no longer care for themselves. Every successful civilization has utilized a combination of several different types ways of Government, and rules/laws/etc, in order for their citizens to be successful, and for their countries to be successful.

  • Grandmaw

    To “pritty brains” “typical white person” spoken by Obama WAS an insult. It was followed by she was afraid of black men. That made it a slur. As a “typical white person” are you afraid of black men? I’m not. Unless one should give me reason to be, which so far, none ever has.

    • Pritty Brains

      Oh please, that’s a crock of cow caca (can you say that over and over real fast?) The woman married a black man, she had black friends, she had children whose heritage was a black heritage so no she wasn’t afraid of blacks and Obama didn’t say that in his book…

      I have read so many distorted quotes the republicans have taken out of context and used in derogatory descriptions in that the quotes used meant something entirely different than what Obama stated and meant in his book. Read Snopes for example:

      And unless you document your own sources, Granny, I’m going to consider you a ‘typical’ republican who spreads baseless rumors and blatant lies created specifically to try and destroy a man’s character. I’d say that’s pretty /d/a/m/n/e/d/ evil. Which is par for the course.

  • RozLynn Downer

    I read through the first batch of posts from July 5th and then scrolled to the bottom; so my comments are my general feelings and facts that I have discovered. First of all, Obama joined the “New Party” in 1996. It is a Socialist party; it has since been disolved, but from his words, actions, associates, etc. he is at the very least a Socialist. Don’t take my word for it, look up the “New Party” and Obama and see for yourself. Next, I believe all the evidence is there to prove he is doing exactly as he said he would do, “fundamentally change the US.” He has and is doing that be redistributing wealth; taking from the “haves” and giving to the “havenots.” For example, I am a counselor, mental health and substance abuse. Through the years I have very much been involved and seen on a daily basis what big government was doing with creating an entitlement generation. They have done a wonderful job of teaching people they do not been to be responsible for themselves; including working or having any self=pride in accomplishments; rather to be dependent and lazy, to lie, to say they are disabled when they are not, etc. Personally, in my own practice, which made me one of those “evil capitalists,” I have now almost lost my entire business because it was state and federal funded. So, we got people hooked on “free” counseling, and then we took it away from them! That is the direction we are headed at break-neck speed in every area of our lives if Obama is reelected. We are the frog boiling away in the pot, never trying to jump out because we were totally aware of the fact that be were being lied to and lulled into sleep. All of you liberals-do you realize that there are 22 hidden taxes in Obamatax? You will be paying them too, just like everyone else, not just the rich but everyone. Even those on Welfare will be paying. And beyond that, when you are no longer a “productive member of society” (socialist/communist term) you will no longer be needed, see George Bernard Shaw for further explanation. That will be all those elderly, actually disabled, or somehow seen unfit to live. We have totally gotten away from the vision of the founders of this great country. I’m positive if George Washington could see us now he would say, “What were we fighting for and why did we ever do it!” Remember why they left England in the first place, to get away from a tyrant and dictator. Obama is very rapidly doing away with all our freedoms as we boil away and becoming our dictator. My feelings are that if he is reelected, immediately we will see things get so much worse for everyone, and I do mean everyone; it will make our heads spin. Then everyone who is being led down the Obamapath will say, How did this happen!!! Vote for Romney, he’s not my pick, but at least he’s not a Communist!! wise old counselor

Amazing election play for him and amzing that Bush is to blame for all this all the time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want to no how Obama looks at 250 thousand dollars as middle class and there is no middle class anymore they have messed with that so much that it has gone it is either Rich or Poor and it takes two incomes to survive and oh exuse me what have they done to the Family????

        Why shouldn’t I have a copy of it? And, no, I’m not an attorney.. There is nothing wrong with being an attorney,BTWThe ACA file can be found at. It’s a very interesting site, with a lot of information. I like dealing with provable face, not hysterical rants about the world as we know it ending if the politician or policy either does or doesn’t get voted in favor of. The plain and simple fact is that the people who make claims like that don’t seem to me to have a very firm grasp on reality.

          Terris I went to the site you have in your comment but this is not what went to the Supreme Court and these plans have been around for along time already one called Kaiser permerrante. But this article you have here is not what went to the Supreme Ct

        • macgyver1948

          terris…. You should have a copy of it. We all should all understand it., is interesting. Take a look at the below, its just a small piece of it, and you will see there are some tax stuff in it but see who it will apply to. Then do your own research on the rest of the law itself for your self. It is so nice to find out the truth rather than to just listen to a PARTY or it’s mindless followers. In general we might see ObamaCare will help us but only time will tell for sure. I think the insurance companies do not like it but that, in itself, should tell us something. I have a feeling the Insurance Companies do not like it because their old “doing business as usual”, so often at our expense, stuff will not hold up now. We should all see if the taxes apply to ourselves before we get angry about them. Did you make over $500,000 in clear profit (over what you paid for it) on the sale of your house?

          There Is No Obamacare Tax On Most Home Sales. Really.

          We will find out in time but we really have to stop listening to hateful and misguided rumors.

          Take a look at the site I link below. If you do not want to go there I pasted the article bellow the link. The article is titled “There Is No Obamacare Tax On Most Home Sales. Really.” See who the taxes are on before stuff is believed from those who want to kill ObamaCare because they hate Obama. Then do your own research on the tax some of you guys seem to think about in ObamaCare.

          There Is No Obamacare Tax On Most Home Sales. Really.

          It is the unfounded rumor that never dies: You will have to pay a 3.8 percent federal health care tax on the sale of your house.
          For all but a handful of taxpayers, this is not true. It is wrong. It is urban myth. It is the revenue equivalent of death panels or theHalliburton conspiracy to start the Iraq war.
          This is one of those seemingly immortal Internet stories. You know the ones: They usually start with the assertion that, “They don’t want to know this but….” In the words of one blogger, “Obamacare will impose a 3.8 percent tax on all home sales and real estate transactions.”
          Umm, no it won’t. Yes, the health law will impose a 3.8 percent tax on investment profits and other non-wage income starting in 2013. But that tax applies only to couples with adjusted gross income of $250,000 (or individuals with AGI of $200,000). About 95 percent of households make less than that, and will be exempt from the law no matter what.
          In addition, couples who sell a personal residence can exclude the first $500,000 in profit from tax ($250,000 for singles). That would be profit from a home sale, not proceeds. So a couple that bought a house for $100,000 and sold it for $599,000 would owe no tax, even under the health law.

          If that couple had AGI in excess of $250,000 and made a profit of $500,010, it would owe the new tax. On ten bucks. That would be an extra 38 cents.

          The Tax Policy Center figures that in 2013 about 0.2 percent of households with cash income of $100,000-$200,000 would pay any additional tax under this provision. And they’d pay, on average, an extra $235. Keep in mind that is added tax on all sources of non-wage income, not just home sales.

          Still, like Dracula, this rumor can’t be killed. Politfact tried to knock it down in 2010. A couple of months ago, my Tax Policy Center colleague Donald Marrondid the same in a Tax Notes article called “Health Reform’s Tax on Investment Income: Facts and Myths.”
          People who send Internet chain letters probably don’t read Tax Notes. Still, imagine Donald’s surprise when just last week he met a guy in Kansas Citywho insisted that the tax not only exists, but the rate is 7 percent (some sort of weird bracket-creep, I guess).
          Now imagine my surprise when, after I wrote a TaxVox article the other day about the (real) tax provisions of the health law, I got an email from a frustrated housing industry tax specialist. “There is usually some confusion/disinformation associated with new tax rules,” he wrote, “but I’ve never seen an issue that has as much as this one.”
          So the bottom line is this: If you are a married couple whose AGI exceeds $250,000, and if you make more than a $500,000 profit from the sale of your house, yes, you may owe this tax. But if you are anybody else, spend your time worrying about how you’re going to win the next $600 million lottery—or whether you are going to get bopped in the head by a stray asteroid on your way to work.

            Good morning First how are you this morning ? It is so fabulous to not watch the news as to listening to the ravings of news broadcasters politicians and lawyers and drs but no Indian chiefs. In November America will make its choice but either choice is not a good one the damage is done to this country and it has been done for a long time. Rant and rave about politics whos right and whos wrong but the damage has been done and all those people who landed here in boats a new country ,to them as they erased there tyranny how will you erase yours???????????????? Where will you go when your government has full control over you George Orwell 1984 or Animal house? Whether either party likes it civil war is here Socialisim is here next stop Communism Enjoy your day Folks!!!

          • macgyver1948

            feather and others.. Good afternoon… Yes, the damage is done but we can’t give up. All those people you mention didn’t give up, they came here and they created the experiment known as American Democracy. It was very good in the beginning but I believe when we strayed from the founders warnings we got lost. We can still fix it because there is still time. We very much need huge government reform and while “We The People” still own both this country and the Government we have to reform it. There are many suggestions floating around the Internet but we have to do it with massive amounts of citizens demanding.

            Unless we individuals are very wealthy or a big corporations our so-called “representatives” do not seem to have very good hearing. So we have to band together, with our collective money and our massive voting power, and demand reform. I felt for a very long time we needed a strong group like AARP but one who stand for all citizens.

            It is a huge shame we are left with choosing our personal definition of the “least of the evils” but we are. I see it as a huge slap ion the Founders faces if we allow our country to become the “Corporate States Of America” replacing huge and infringing government. We own the Government and we need to shrink it but we need to do that compassionately and with prudence for all individuals equality. The private sector is for “what you can afford” and our Democracy, our government, is for all of us equal. I think the Founders would be totally pissed off if they see how corporations get preferential treatment at the expense of the middle and lower classes and that is from primarily from one very influenced party more so than the other.

            The Founders warned us of Corporate greed and it’s power to greatly influence our “representatives”. We over the centuries, more so since the Civil War, have allowed this corruption to take over. We need the reforms to being it back to how the founders built it for us.

            It is not our only problems but Romney, the Koch puppet, is denying the founders and us when he says things like “corporations are people too”. The GOP’s exclusive fight for the corporations is killing us. If you do not like Obama vote for someone else but do not give us totally to the corporations as we would be with the GOP and the Koch’s of the world.

            “I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country.” – Thomas Jefferson

            Thomas Jefferson and others were very much in favor of “Separation Of Corporation And State”. How very wise to this day they were. We have to wake up soon and take it back before it is to late..

            This election will be not so hard or not so easy I wish we could get rid of all washington and start a new. Happy days for us all in the days to come and the hope we will stick together and fight hard for this Country WE THE PEOPLE HAVE THE RIGHTS!

          • macgyver1948

            feather… You are right. This election will not be easy but it really shouldn’t be so hard. Yep, I agree with you totally, “…and the hope we will stick together and fight hard for this Country WE THE PEOPLE HAVE THE RIGHTS! “.

            We have to stick together, all of “WE THE PEOPLE” or we could lose it all together. The founders said we should take it back if we do not like how our government evolves over time. I hope so much it is done nonviolently. We very much need Government reform because it has become that our “representatives” are not representing us. We need to get it back to the way the Founders made it for us and we need the Constitution working for us again without any of those so-called “representatives” editing it without our permission. Someone say hi to gw bush and home land security on that note.

          MY comment is to everyone in general; I just happened to read these comments last week because I am a Bob Livingston subscriber that thought a little dose of truth and logic might be a good idea….. and now I am getting the blogs on my email and so am kind of following them. A lot of what I am reading is hysteria. Most of you need to calm down and be willing to see the truth; no matter where it is coming from. The “real truth” needs to be the agenda, not blindly following anyone just because. First of all, the ACA does contain many taxes; hidden and of course as we are finding out now, actually penalties if not followed. I will not point out page and paragraph to anyone; do your own homework, but a few “hidden taxes are on every banking transaction anyone will make, salon tanning, medical equipment, selling your house after Jan 1, 2013, death counseling and encouraging you to end your life when there is not the perceived government quality left, (God help us as to what “they-bureaucrats” will decide is necessary and proper; I can guarantee if you are old or disabled it will be minimal. As I said previously, if you are not a “productive member of society” (working and contributing to the common welfare, you are not needed. All of these and other hidden taxes will help pay for Obamatax. I don’t believe in spoonfeeding, hopefully everyone is really on the same page afterall and wants American to continue to be the home of the Brave and the land of the Free. If you agree with Obama, and hate America and Capitalism, and really do believe we are just this huge, greedy country who has ruined the world, deprived all other countries to take from them and make us richer, then vote for Obama and all other big government thieves and liars. You do remember Obama took a solemn oath of office to uphold the constitution of the US! Are you aware of what the Constitution actually says the Federal Government is for? It is the instrument by which we the people put people in Washington to protect us and regulate commerce. Basically the rest was to have been up to the states; we have been asleep, boiling away in the pot for 200 years while we trusted the thieves, liars, those only interested in making themselves rich at the expense of the people, and the downfall of our country. Wake up, quit fighting with each other, find out if you agree on basic principles of honesty and helping each other. We the People can speak and take back America; but in 4 more years it will be too late. By then the America as we know it is gone forever. Do your homework and find out the truth. A good beginning is the new movie just coming out 2016, see it if you can. Also read the book “The Amateur” by Chris Klein. It tells many FACTS about Obama. At this point I am sure he is not an amateur; but has been very heavily schooled since birth for his position to take down our country. There are legions behind him worldwide, of course George Soros, at the top of the list. Be willing to look the truth in the eye, and then make your decision; do you want to just be a part of the 10 divisions of the World Order, or do you want to continue to be the Shining City on the Hill that takes in the tired and poor, masses yearning to be free as stated on the Statue of Liberty. Yes, we are corrupt in Washington, almost everyone there. Yes, we need massive medical change to get rid of the corruption and greed, but “We the People” are smart enough if we are willing to become informed and educated to send the right people with values and ethics, without hidden agendas to Washington. Othewise, we go away. Make your choice and educate yourself, if you don’t, everyone, no matter which side you are on will find yourself the loser. The Elite only care about themselves. Wake up!!!!!!!!!

      Hi RozLynn Downer, You are a true lover of America, and you know evil when you see it. I pray that there are more of us than there are of those under Barack Hussein Obama’s evil spell. He has a way about him that sucks people in, and gets them to believe he really cares about them, while he tramples on our Constitution as though it means nothing. I am sure he is having a good laugh at how foolish his followers are, and their willingness to help him ruin their own future. I have never seen anything like it. I think they would follow him off a cliff, and he would be the only one with a parachute.

        Well said. YOU JUST CAN’T FIX STUPID!!!

  • macgyver1948

    WOW this is very true and Democrats better wake up very soon. We the people, all of us, need more Dem response.

    Breaking from
    Nader: Fearful Democrats on Defeatist Path
    Republicans criticize Democrats in Congress for being too liberal, but consumer activist and former presidential candidate Ralph Nader criticizes them for being too conservative.

    “If the Democrats in Congress were all drinking water from the same faucet, there might be a clue to their chronic fear of the craven and cruel corporatist Republicans who dominate them,” he writes on his web site. “But they don’t, so we have to ask why their fear, defeatism, and cowering behavior continue in the face of the outrageous GOP actions as the November election approaches.”

    Republicans have won over voters with their passion, Nader says. “To paraphrase author and lapsed Republican, Kevin Phillips, the Republicans go for the jugular, while the Democrats go for the capillaries.”

    Democrats take it on the chin from House Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Nader says. “But they do not go into these politicians’ backyards in Virginia and Ohio to expose the unpopular agendas pitched by these Wall Street puppets.”

    Democrats let Republicans get away with backing big corporations, Nader says. “The Democrats should be land-sliding the worst Republican Party in history,” he writes. But that’s obviously not happening.

    “Though rolling in promotional capability, the Democrats still have not come up with a clear list of the hundreds of Republican disastrous proposals – passed in the House or proposed,” Nader says. “These wrongful Republican initiatives should be boiled down to their vicious essence for public diffusion. Instead, the blue-dog Democrats are constantly, and with impunity, giving Republicans cover.”

    Democrats had better awaken soon if they hope to avert an electoral disaster, Nader says. “The coming days await a new and open jolting push by prominent outside Democrats who fervently want to wrench their party back from the abyss, from its own self-imposed sense of dread before a devastating, self-inflicted November defeat.”

          • daveG

            And you keep kissin’ Obama’s butt, not thinking for yourself and taking his freebies. As I said, if you turn out to be right, I’ll admit I was wrong!! But, how in the world do you think that his programs are going to work better in the U.S. when the same programs in Greece, Italy, Spain, etc. HAVE BEEN A TOTAL DISASTER!! THOSE COUNTRIES ARE OUT OF MONEY!!! They are rioting because they’re not getting their free money!!! By continuing to raise taxes and not cutting spending, the people who are being nailed for higher taxes will ship their money out of this country. The government won’t be able to get it. The money has to run out!!!! WHERE’S THE FRICKIN’ MONEY GOING TO COME FROM????? Now, instead of making your smug short remarks……………..tell us WHERE IS THE FRICKIN’ MONEY GOING TO COME FROM????? Are you going to pony-up and give 90% of your income to save everyone???? I don’t think so!! So, WHERE IS THE FRICKIN’ MONEY GOING TO COME FROM???? We’re all waiting………….I don’t think that you’ll be posting your solution because you don’t have one!!! And none of us will accept that more government workers will solve the problem……….the money for all of those government workers has to come from somewhere……….where????????? Obama has raised the deficit 6 trillion in just over 3 years (Bush raised it 4 trillion in 8 years).

            HOW’S THAT PLAN WORKING????

            I’ll give you some help on the solution:

            1. Replace the tax code. Lower taxes on everyone. Let everyone keep more of their money. They will be able to spend more money, and the independent businesses will hire more people……….Gosh, do you see a trend here…..Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder can see this, but you’ll never agree that lowering taxes is a good idea……THE LEFT LIKES RAISING TAXES SO THEY CAN SPEND MORE.

            2. Force the government a–holes to live within a budget (of course the Senate hasn’t had a budget in over 3 years…….I love Harry Reid and the Democrats in the Senate for continuing to break the law………typical of Obamaites!!! Bring in people like Fred Smith (Fed Ex), Ceo of Pepsi Cola, Bill Gates, and a few other people who have run successful businesses. They would have red sharpies and would take the government spending programs and scratch off the ones to cancel……effective immediately!!! If congress doesn’t live within the budget, then everyone who voted for the programs that put us in the red………….they would be permanently ineligible to hold a government office again.

            3. There’s several trillion dollars offshore that won’t be back into this country unless the Corporate taxes are lowered. Let them bring this money back into this country with ZERO TAXES… long as at least half of it is used to create jobs. (I KNOW YOU’LL BE AGAINST THIS ONE, BUT HERE’S THE 2 CHOICES: LEAVE IT OFFSHORE WHERE IT DOESN’T DO THIS COUNTRY ANY GOOD BECAUSE YOU WANT THEM TO PAY HIGH TAXES ON IT………..OR LET IT BE BROUGHT BACK IN AND CREATE JOBS……….DUHHHHH!!!

            4. Lower Corporate taxes down to 15% and more people will not move out to other countries with much lower tax rates…..and a bunch of the ones who have left will come back.

            5. Lower Corporate taxes down to 15% and more people will not move out to other countries with much lower tax rates…..and a bunch of the ones who have left will probably come back.

            6. Start issuing oil drilling permits on federal land………North Dakota is drilling on private land and has a 3% unemployment rate, tons of people making a lot of money, and the economy is exploding. But, you lefties would rather keep us dependent of foreign oil and Obama blowing billions of dollars that we don’t have on GREEN crap that is going to take years to develope…..In the meantime, we’re going broke!!

            7.Take all of the people in congress (and this will tick off EVERY ONE of them) off their gravey train. Unless they serve at least 4 terms in congress they would receive $2,000 a month pension. Anything under 4 terms, they get nothing!! (Gosh, kind of like the real business world!!) This would be retroactive back to 1960. Adjust the pensions on the people who qualify for the $2,000 a month and completely cancel the pensions of the ones who don’t qualify. (Have any idea of how much money this would save us immediately……..I’d sure like to know that figure).

            8.. Pass a law that anything passed in congress that the citizens of the U.S. have to abide by, everyone in congress has to also abide by the same laws. Which would mean that from now on, they all have to pay for their own healthcare and abide by Obama-Doesn’t-Care Healthcare.

            Anyone in congress who doesn’t like #7 above, then we would settle for term limits……..
            2 terms only………….first one in Congress…….the second in prison!


            We’re all waiting for your plan!!

          • macgyver1948

            Hi DaveG… LOL… nice read there. Apparently I do not have to answer any of your questions because you decided what my answers would be, or is it should be. Thank you for that. You are truly the generalizing and also mind reading sponge your programmers want for your mind. Good for you and you go on believing what you want about me and any who do not agree with you. After all, you cannot be wrong – Isn’t that right?

          • daveG

            BOY, DID I READ YOU LIKE A BOOK, MR. RESEARCHER I said that you wouldn’t come up with a plan to help solve the problems of the country because YOU DON’T HAVE ONE. You lefties can’t think for yourselves. So, your plan must be to continue to listen to Obama, raise taxes and keep spending money that we don’t have. GOSH!! HOW’S THAT PROGRAM WORKING????

            UNEMPLOYMENT AT +15% (real numbers including the people who have quit looking for a job),





            No wonder you’re not an independent business owner, because they can’t just go print money like Obama. They have to have the money to be able to spend it…………a novel idea, wouldn’t you say?? Why don’t you go into business for yourself…………bet you wouldn’t last a year………….wait a minute……….you don’t have to open up a business and take all that risk. Big Brother is taking care of you!! The biggest risk for you is watching out for the cars coming down the street when you go to your mail box for your food stamps and welfare check. But, if there isn’t a change…………THAT MONEY WILL RUN OUT……..GUARANTEED!!!

            Since you can’t think for yourself, I am going to give you some advice…….which you really need to take: If Obama brings out the Cool Ade…………..RUN!!!!!!!!!!

          • macgyver1948

            DaveG… Does Goofy or Daffy Duck write for you? WOW…LOL

          • daveG

            You’ve proven that I was right about you!!! You don’t have a plan!! So, you won’t answer my questions. They’re really simple………..even a simple minded leftie can understand them……….unless they just know that they really are on the wrong side of right! And, I think that you really know that you can’t think for yourself and and so you just blindly follow the Pied Piper (Obama) down the pier to destruction. Have a good swim!!

            Gail… Ralph Nader tells the truth as well as any politician, more than most, and a whole lot more that Romney, which is really very easy to do. Soon there will be talking Mitt and Ann dolls which will say “pull my string and I will say anything you want for a price”…

          • macgyver1948

            Gail… I would agree that there are many “SKELETONS IN the CLOSET”s of politicians on both sides of the aisle, Ralph Nader included. We choose to agree or disagree with a point of view or a political party and we see more SKELETONS on the other side than on our own. Otherwise why would we make that choice? I like and agreed with what Nader said so I shared it, nothing more. I do not see Obama as perfect and neither do I see Nader that way.

            You do not like HARRY REID and NANCY POLOCI, among others I bet on the left, and I respect that. I do not like John Boehner or Eric Cantor because I see them being as phony as Hitler’s love for the Jews, assuming Hitler would pretend. But they do and I do not like them. We have that choice, that right. I would very much support your right to be on the other side of the aisle and I will go with the side I see as being more for the majority of the country, more for the things I agree with. It wouldn’t be America if I didn’t have that right.

    Government “Whistleblower” Says Obama IS Planning to Declare Martial Law — Click below to DEMAND Congress STOP Obama’s “Emergency Powers” Executive Order:

    ALERT: A government “whistleblower” inside the Obama regime has blown the lid off of why Barack Hussein Obama has recently signed Executive Orders that give him the power to declare martial law across America!

    Obama, through the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and other agencies and “czars,” is plotting a major “Reichstag” event to generate racial riots and produce the justification for martial law, delaying the November 2012 elections… possibly indefinitely!

    A DHS whistleblower informed the Canada Free Press “that the DHS is actively preparing for massive social unrest inside the United States. He then corrected himself, stating that ‘a civil war’ is the more appropriate term. ‘Certain elements of the government are not only expecting and preparing for it, they are actually facilitating it.’”

    It’s more and more obvious that Barack Obama is preparing to DECLARE MARTIAL LAW — we MUST STOP HIM NOW!


    A “Reichstag event” refers to a fire started in Germany’s legislature during Hitler’s rise to power. The fire allowed him to grab emergency powers and eliminate his opposition. While he blamed it on Communists, historians have long believed that Hitler started the fire himself.

    According to the anonymous “whistleblower” inside Obama’s DHS, this “Reichstag event” would take the form of a staged assassination attempt against Barack Obama, “carefully choreographed” and manufactured by Obama operatives. It would subsequently be blamed on “white supremacists” and used to enrage the black community to rioting and looting, the DHS source warned.

    The Obama administration would then use the violence and chaos they created as justification for the imposition of martial law in major urban cities in America, the creation of DHS checkpoints, restriction of travel, and the indefinite delay of the November 2012 elections:

    “The DHS takes their marching orders from the Obama administration, from Obama himself, but mostly from his un-appointed czars. And Jarrett, especially Valerie Jarrett. Don’t think for a minute that the administration is doing anything to stabilize events in the U.S. They are revolutionaries, and revolutionaries thrive on chaos,” he added.

    This is getting TOO BIG to hide — now, even the MEDIA is starting to pick up on the shocking news:

    Barack Hussein Obama has signed Executive Orders giving him the power to declare MARTIAL LAW in America!

    On a recent episode of his Fox News show, Sean Hannity himself declared:

    “Tonight… we shine the spotlight on an executive order that the White House was hoping that you would never learn about. Now, the President signed the National Defense Resources Preparedness [NDRP] executive order late Friday afternoon. And since that time, now the measure has been virtually ignored by the mainstream media. Now, the order essentially gives the president of the United States absolute power over any and all American resources during both times of peace and national crisis. Now, this includes, but it’s not limited to food and livestock, water, plants, energy, health resources, transportation and construction materials and gives the government the ability to, quote, ‘control the general distribution of any material, including applicable services in this civilian market.’”

    Hannity then went on to discuss how “this would give the President of the United States the authority to declare basically Martial Law during times of peace. And to be sure, this is simply the latest string of actions taken by the administration that ignore the basic principles of our constitution.”

    Barack Obama is OUT OF CONTROL — we MUST STOP HIM NOW!


    Of course, that Executive Order was only the BEGINNING. Obama’s preparations to institute MARTIAL LAW IN AMERICA are coming together quickly.

    FIRST, he signed an Executive Order, for so-called “National Defense Resources Preparedness” — that would give him DICTATOR POWERS whenever he decides he “needs” them.

    THEN, he signed ANOTHER “Executive Order”, this time to take control of America’s domestic natural gas production.

    NOW, he’s done it AGAIN — Barack Hussein Obama has signed YET ANOTHER Executive Order… declaring INTERNATIONAL LAW for the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

    As reported by blogger Henry Shivley:

    “On May 1, 2012, our Glorious Leader, Premier Barack Obama AKA Barry Soetoro AKA Barry the Rat, signed yet another Executive Order – Promoting International Regulatory Cooperation. This dictate is designed to standardize regulations between the United States and its so-called trading partners.

    What is a regulation? A law. So what is actually being attempted here is a standardization of international law. It is an absolute violation of the Constitution for the United States to legislate our law outside of our borders.”

    And what exactly can this latest unconstitutional Executive Order lead to? As Shivley states, “Considering the many international security agreements the traitors occupying our highest seats of power have entered into, this latest executive order can absolutely be used to institute gun confiscation laws/regulations, without any consent by our Congress or our Judicial. And once these foreign laws are brought to the United States under the various security agreements, foreign troops will be brought in to enforce the foreign laws upon the people of the United States.”

    This new Executive Order came hot on the heels of the recent one that Barack Obama signed to take control of America’s domestic natural gas production. As columnist Mac Slavo reports:

    “While Americans focused their attention on the Colombian controversy involving U.S. Secret Service agents, prostitutes and excessive drinking, President Obama quietly signed his latest Presidential Executive Order.

    The Supporting Safe and Responsible Development of Unconventional Domestic Natural Gas Resources Executive Order seeks to create what amounts to a Presidential super committee that will oversee the regulation and development of the ‘unconventional’ natural gas industry for the purpose of ensuring a long-term natural gas supply for the United States, as well as to do so in a safe and environmentally responsible manner.”

    So now, by Presidential decree alone, the federal government can “coordinate action” through thirteen core federal agencies against any domestic natural gas production facility — all according to standards determined to be “appropriate” not by law, but because of political agenda.

    Moreover, because a key stated purpose of this latest Executive Order is to “ensure long-term supplies,” Barack Obama’s new decree gives the federal government the ability to shut down gas production operations as THEY see fit, which can lead directly to government price fixing and centralized control of an essential natural energy resource.

    While Obama’s Executive Order aims to curtail some of the practices of the hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” industry, it further expands government control over our lives through more centralization of power and bureaucracy.

    THINGS ARE GETTING WORSE. As experts start to dig deeper into Barack Hussein Obama’s recently-signed Executive Order, for so-called “National Defense Resources Preparedness,” they are reporting just how bad this really is: OBAMA IS PREPARING TO DECLARE MARTIAL LAW IN AMERICA.

    As detailed in this report from the Canada Free Press:

    Under this order the heads of these cabinet level positions; Agriculture, Energy, Health and Human Services, Transportation, Defense and Commerce can take food, livestock, fertilizer, farm equipment, all forms of energy, water resources, all forms of civil transportation (meaning any vehicles, boats, planes), and any other materials, including construction materials from wherever they are available. This is probably why the government has been visiting farms with GPS devices, so they know exactly where to go when they turn this one on.

    Specifically, the government is allowed to allocate materials, services, and facilities as deemed necessary or appropriate. They decide what necessary or appropriate means.


    It’s up to YOU AND ME to STOP HIM NOW!


    We’re not alone in reporting this. It’s starting to be reported in more and more media sources:


    The latest report comes from the Russia Times:

    “As folks headed out to happy hour last Friday evening, President Obama signed an executive order that could potentially give him the power to institute martial law in the United States in times of peace or during a national threat… Many Americans were shocked to find out that this order gives the president practically unlimited power over US citizens and their property. All in the name of national security of course.”

    IT’S TRUE! As we said, Barack Hussein Obama has signed a Presidential Executive Order, which would give him the powers of a DICTATOR — whenever HE thinks it’s “necessary” to institute MARTIAL LAW!

    According to press reports, “A White House order updating federal emergency powers has raised alarm among some conservative commentators, and U.S. Rep. Sandy Adams, that President Barack Obama is attempting to grab unconstitutional powers.”

    A columnist with The Washington Times declared the mid-March order — an update of a 60-year-old document outlining the president’s authority in a national emergency — “stunning in its audacity and a flagrant violation of the Constitution.” The conservative Drudge Report website linked to it with the headline, “Martial Law?”

    And Adams, R-Orlando, said it “leaves the door open for the president to give himself control over American resources during both times of peace, and national crisis.”

    It’s almost unbelievable what Barack Hussein Obama is trying to do — BUT IT’S TRUE. According to a bombshell article in the Washington Times, “President Obama has given himself the powers to declare martial law — especially in the event of a war with Iran. It is a sweeping power grab that should worry every American.”

    On March 16, the White House released an executive order, “National Defense Resources Preparedness.” The document is stunning in its audacity and a flagrant violation of the Constitution. It states that, in case of a war or national emergency, the federal government has the authority to take over almost every aspect of American society. Food, livestock, farming equipment, manufacturing, industry, energy, transportation, hospitals, health care facilities, water resources, defense and construction — all of it could fall under the full control of Mr. Obama. The order empowers the president to dispense these vast resources as he sees fit during a national crisis.

    In short, according to the Times, the order gives Barack Obama the ability to IMPOSE MARTIAL LAW: “He now possesses the potential powers of a dictator. The order is a direct assault on individual liberties, private property rights and the rule of law. It is blatantly unconstitutional. The executive branch is arrogating responsibilities precluded by the Constitution without even asking the permission of Congress. The order gives Mr. Obama a blank check to erect a centralized authoritarian state.”

    But why this — and why now?

    SIMPLE — because he’s about to provoke a confrontation with IRAN, which could give him the excuse to implement martial law in America:

    “Obama may be ready to launch devastating airstrikes on Iranian nuclear facilities. If that should happen, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has promised massive retaliation. American troops will be targeted by Iranian proxies in Iraq and Afghanistan. American embassies will be struck across the Middle East and North Africa. Most ominously, Iranian-backed Hezbollah cells could launch devastating terrorist attacks in major U.S. cities, killing numerous citizens. The war may well come home, triggering domestic chaos. These are the very real risks of a major conflict with Iran.”

    As columnist Jeffrey Kuhner notes, “The president does not – and should not – have the authority to subordinate the entire private economy to the government, especially without the consent of Congress and the American people. It is national socialism masquerading as military security. This is why conservatives — those who are serious about defending our constitutional republic – should demand that the executive order be repealed immediately.”



    Thankfully, there are Members of Congress who are standing UP for the U.S. Constitution. Rep. Sandy Adams (R-FL) has introduced H. Con. Res. 110 in response to President Obama’s blatant attempt to go around the Constitution and institute martial law if HE thinks it’s “necessary.”

    In introducing her bill, Rep. Adams stated, “President Obama issued a National Defense Resources Preparedness Executive Order on March 16, 2012 that raises some serious concerns in its wording and intent. The order has historically been based on the Defense Production Act of 1950 (50 U.S.C. App. 2061 et seq.). However, unlike previous presidents, President Obama’s executive order broadens the definition of ‘national defense.’ This leaves the door open for the president to give himself control over American resources during both times of peace, and national crisis. In response to the order, I have introduced a resolution to make it clear the president cannot use this as an excuse to abuse his executive power.”

    Rep. Adams’ bill presently has 37 co-sponsors — but she needs a lot more to get the bill to the floor.


    If we can FLOOD the offices of all of these Congressmen, demanding that they SUPPORT H. Con. Res. 110, we CAN put a stop to Obama’s attempt to circumvent the Constitution and lay the groundwork for martial law. But we need YOUR help. Send your Blast Faxes to every single U.S. Congressman and Senator NOW!


    William Greene, President

    P.S. As Rep. Adams stated when introducing her bill to stop Barack Obama’s attempt to put in place the ability to institute martial law on his own whim, “Each of us in Congress began our service to our friends, neighbors, and communities with the knowledge it was our responsibility to uphold the Constitution. We were elected to protect the values that make our nation great and to be a line of defense against the growing interjection of government into the everyday lives of the American people. I will continue to defend the principles on which our nation was founded and I will continue to uphold our Constitution.”

    YOU AND I need to JOIN IN and force the REST of Congress to uphold our Constitution! TAKE ACTION NOW!

        Hi Pritty Brains .

        You said of JT “This is hilarious! *laffs* Well written, very entertaining. Did you major in creative writing in college? You should write for comics. I bet you’d be very good.”

        I got a good laugh too. If Obama is planning this it would have to be after he wins the re-election because if he does it before he loses totally. And if he does it after there will be so much riot in the streets in so many places. There is nothing going on here that is bad enough for him to justify or even think of it.

        I bet some nut case thought this one up just to promote Obama hate. Obama hate has been going on for his presidency, for him, long before he was elected President.

          Good afternoon nice to see ya back again. Like I said DRs Lawyers Politicians and Bankers no Indian Chiefs. This world is so messed up I dont care who it is they will never beable to mend the destruction that has been done for the last 60 years I dont care what politcian it is.

          • macgyver1948

            It is nice to hear from you again too. Politicians are very strange creatures and I think there are a variety of species among them. There is the young impressionable do-gooders when they first get elected the want to do well for the people they represent. Then the system happens to them and they conform just to survive.

            Another species is trained from birth and then through the kinds of universities they go to and the clicks they feel the need to join. They believe money and power are what it is all about. The systems suits them just fine and they make their marks by attaching themselves to huge money and working for them for their entire political careers.

            I do not see any of how our political structure evolved since the founders days, especially since the Civil War, as something the founders would be proud of. So we have to fix it with so many of us non-wealthy people and those wealthy who want this country to be as it should to band together and demand of our government to reform itself as we, who own our government, demand it.

            It seems, as I have heard since I was a kid, money and power talk- BS walks. In our case the BS is non wealthy people. The politicians do not seem to hear us without the wealth and power. If there are enough of us US citizens, with our then collective wealth and votes, they should listen. I do not believe it will get better otherwise. We have to make them know if they do not reform as we demand we will get rid of them and we have to prove it at every election and not just so so to each other.

            The problems were created by the same kinds of minds decades ago, maybe more, and we cannot fix the problems with the same kind of minds that created them today. And then, to be cliché a bit more, if we keep going how we have and expect real working change “We The People” have to be nuts. We need massive government reform. The system we have now is sick so we, not the politicians, have to fix it and always remind our representatives, the new ones, that they work for us because once they forget that it will all happen all over again.

            It will happen again as soon as the new politicians see the money they are given by special interest groups and very wealthy corporate types and it will begin to be sick again. The founders warned us about corporate influence and they were so right.

            We have to always stand up for our freedoms and liberties. I will end this with a couple of quotes from some old guys you might know.

            “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Benjamin Franklin

            “I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country.” – Thomas Jefferson

            Thomas Jefferson and others were very much in favor of “Separation Of Corporation And State”. How very wise to this day they were. We need to know more of the founders, as they really were and not how they are being phonied up to us today.

          • feather

            We do agree on some points dont we lol! I enjoy talking with everyone on here and I am not here to bad mouth anyone for there personnel views. We all know alot of mistakes have been made and being Rep or Dem doesnt matter its the men who are in office that count. I think that there diffinitely should have been term limits along time ago also I believe these men need to pay social security and taxes and that there salary should be no more than 50,000 dollars a year and quit making a job out of politics making millions of from us and get a job in the real world and feel the little people.

      • Eark

        Pritty Brains, Picture this, The U.S. Armed Forces Invades America. Prisons are being built around the country now. The NDAA,that Obama secretly signed New Years eve which gives the authorities the right to arrest and detain anyone without any charges. Obama is a willing puppet as well as others for the New World Order. He and his crew have given China access to our U.S. Treasury and The goon Baneke has given China permission to open their banks here. They will eventually take over all of the banks here. Your government and China are secretly conspiring to impoverish the citizens here. This is going to take place soon. Please don’t laugh. It’s real. Stock up.

  • Rick

    Shame on all of you people who still support Barack Hussein Obama. He is a master at fooling weak minds. I think most of you are young and are easily tricked. When I was younger, it was easier to pull one over on me too. We as a country have been slowly losing our freedoms a little at a time for many years. It has now gotten so bad that our Federal Government is putting a surveillance device, called a Smart Meter on every home in America. They are using the power companies to do it, but the biggest share of the funding is from our government, which is flat broke and so deep in debt that it is pathetic. You now do not even have privacy in your own home! Where is the uprising about that? Everyone I ask about it says, “What is a smart meter?” Research it people. With this device they can pretty much know everything about your daily routine; when your home and when your not. They are also making smart water meters and smart gas meters.The result will eventually be rationing, so they can control us like sheep. We should never trust any elected person to have our best interest in their heart. They all need to be watched very closely. Barack Hussein Obama does not love this country. I do not understand the spell he has over you, but I pray that you will step back and try to see him for what he really is. He is the enemy within. Try to look past the smile and smooth talk. The quality our future (yours included) and the future of our children is in very real danger. By supporting this smooth talking, American hating Con Man, YOU ARE LITERALLY CREATING YOUR OWN PRISON. DON’T BE A FOOL.

  • Incriminally Sane

    I completely fail to understand how and/or why ANY true American would bow to this criminal Obama who has done NOTHING but destroy the freedoms of the people in America and turn it into a very socialist nanny state. Obama has spent more money than any president in American history, done more to steal our rights, and give himself more power through Executive Orders, he completely bypassed Congress for the illegal attack on Libya,He signed off on KILL lists for American Citizens and already killed some abroad, he gives nation wide construction contracts to the Chinese that put Americans out of work, This guy has done EVERYTHING in his power to force the failure of America . , Obama is NOT going to leave office, he enjoys power far too much and his wife seems to enjoy her weekly foreign vacations on taxpayer money far too much to allow Obama to leave office, this must be the best (free) ride she has EVER had.

  • Erik

    Hey Wayne, if Obama is trying to destroy capitalism and the corporations why has the DOW JONES DOUBLED since he took office? Why did corporate America have record profits for 2010 and 11? If thats destroying capitalism, good for Obama!!

    It was free market anarchist Libertarians like YOU who caused the Wall Street free-for-all casino to build a house of cards and then leverage that to $900 TRILLION in derivatives based on phony liar mortgages. Your bankster buddies then sold these to poor European countries like Greece which then went broke when the phoney WStreet derivatives went bust.

  • Brad

    Honestly, when are we going to stop blaming the President (conservative or liberal) for the failures of this country, and put the blame squarely where it belongs? Namely, the lobbyists, the CEO’s, and the oil barons. Those who took our tax dollars in the bailout and used those dollars to foot their own bonuses and those of the sycophants who continue to serve them. It’s big business and the FED that runs the show in this country, robs us of our tax dollars, assaults our basic rights, and has put this country on the road to ruination. The president is just a figurehead anymore. Someone who puts a face to the myth that our vote actually matters anymore. The only “vote” that matters is monetary in nature. If you care about anything more than the monetary bottom line in this country, than you are all of a sudden branded as being too soft. And you have no use for the super PAC’s and the people behind them who pervert the real meaning of what a free country and a true capitalist economy looks like.

    • Pritty Brains

      Well said…

        There is no hope for you Pritty Brains. You will not be happy until you are completely imprisoned by your government. Our educational system has obviously completely failed you. They might have taught you how to add and subtract, but they sure neglected to teach you about our Constitution and freedom. Go ahead – Rolls your eyes. Did your parents not teach you that there is no such thing as free? When someone starts telling you that you will get something free, you are a fool to believe it. Under Barack Hussein Obama Socialism, we will all (including you) be paying unimaginably high taxes and fees on everything, and that will evolve to include food too. What is the power that this deceiver has over you? Please move to Western Europe. They already have what your looking for there. See how that works out for you. Barack Hussein Obama does not care about you. He is using people like you to help him fulfill the dreams from his father. And, that is to bring America down in the world. Barack Hussein Obama is laughing at you and other foolish Americans for helping him to accomplish it.

        • Pritty Brains

          Rick Rick Rick… The things you say with such impunity, without thinking things through…tsk tsk tsk… If you would have documented your sources when you declared as though fact that:

          * Under Barack Hussein Obama Socialism, we will all (including you) be paying unimaginably high taxes and fees on everything, and that will evolve to include food too.

          * Barack Hussein Obama does not care about you. He is using people like you to help him fulfill the dreams from his father. And, that is to bring America down in the world.

          I might have found your comment to be debate worthy. As it is, the above statements are foolish and undocumented and such I consider them baseless rumors, pure conjecture, absolute speculation…

          And the rest of your comment laced with such statements as:

          * There is no hope for you Pritty Brains.

          * Our educational system has obviously completely failed you. They might have taught you how to add and subtract, but they sure neglected to teach you about our Constitution and freedom. Go ahead – Rolls your eyes.

          * Barack Hussein Obama is laughing at you and other foolish Americans for helping him to accomplish it.

          are offensive and unnecessary and also not worth debating. I hope you understand in the future when I don’t bother to respond to your comments.

I do not expect you will ever try to google to find any fault in your GOD…B.O. so I will provide you with the first page of google on B.O. war crimes for you, although I do not expect you to look at it, you will just fire back that it is all racist or untrue.

    Re: DHS Study Brands “Liberty Lovers” as “Potential Terrorists”
    Terror Chart
    A newly released Department of Homeland Security study entitled Hot Spots of Terrorism and Other Crimes in the United States 1970-2008 characterizes Americans espousing traditionally patriotic values as potential terrorists.
    Yes, that’s right. It’s all in the report on pages 11-12, where it purports law-abiding Americans exhibiting any of these characteristics to be potential extremists and right-wing terrorists:

    Americans who “are fiercely nationalistic, as opposed to universal and international in orientation”
    Americans considering themselves “anti-global”
    Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority”
    Americans who are “reverent of individual liberty (especially their right to own guns and be free of taxes)”
    Americans exhibiting a belief in “conspiracy theories that involve grave threat to national sovereignty and/or personal liberty and a belief that one’s personal and/or national way of life is under attack”

    The DHS vs. Our Founding Fathers!
    How far we’ve come. Do these characteristics sound familiar? They should to anyone who just celebrated the 236th anniversary of the founding of our country.
    Terror Chart
    During the drafting of the Constitution John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and George Washington, all expressed strong “suspicion of centralized authority,” “reverence for individual liberty,” and beliefs that there were persistent “grave threats to national sovereignty and/or personal liberty.”
    Yet now the federal government from which our Founding Fathers hoped to protect citizens considers the characteristics of its founders to be indicators of terrorism. Perhaps the Department of Homeland Security should investigate the possibility that our Founding Fathers were, in fact, terrorists.
    This Is Not an Isolated Incident –
    Contempt for Liberty Dominates Washington
    As much as I wish this were simply an isolated incident, it is not. The federal government has recently generated an alarming number of documents and press conferences with similar assertions.
    An FBI press conference in February 2012 warned the public of anti-government “extremists” who believe that “the United States went bankrupt by going off the gold standard.” The press conference went on to vilify these “extremists” who believe in sound monetary policy, and even describing how these citizens pose a serious threat to the IRS, all the while neglecting to cite a single credible threat.
    Sponsored Message from Independent Living
    Stop snoops, busybodies, nosy neighbors, and government bureaucrats cold!
    Learn how to lower your profile and protect your freedom here.
    Similarly a Department of Justice manual entitled Investigating Terrorism and Criminal Extremism lists those who attend “preparedness expos,” possess “Constitutional money” (that is, gold or silver), and “Constitutionalists” directly alongside Al Qaeda, Hamas, and Hezbollah members as potential terror threats.
    The same manual also cites economic sabotage, which it defines as “a term often employed by extremists… to mean a clandestine action carried out to cause financial loss to a victim,” as a tool of the extremists such as the Constitutionalists it rails against.
    In a twist of irony the federal government, an entity whose inflationary monetary policies can only be described as the king of “clandestine action carried out to cause financial loss,” wants to associate Constitutionalists, gold, and silver with economic sabotage!
    Terror Chart
    Another document that was released by the FBI Phoenix office urged citizens and law enforcement officers to call the Joint Terrorism Task Force if they encountered “defenders of the US Constitution against federal government and UN” as well as citizens who “make numerous references to the US Constitution.”
    A Department of Homeland Security assessment entitled Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment expresses even more stunning sentiments. The document suggests that rightwing extremists are often concerned with “the perceived loss of U.S. jobs in the manufacturing and construction sectors.” Not the loss of jobs, the perceived loss! This document was written in 2009 when reported unemployment first rose into the 10% range.
    The document continues saying, “Many rightwing extremists are antagonistic toward the new presidential administration and its perceived stance on a range of issues, including immigration and citizenship, the expansion of social programs to minorities, and restrictions on firearms ownership and use.” The assessment even has the audacity to list military veterans as potential threats to the country.
    Paradoxically, this very same document that characterizes protected political speech and ideas as “extremist behavior” claims a major issue in the recruitment of these “extremists” has been “perceived government infringement on civil liberties.”
    One document even went to far as to specifically list libertarians and Ron Paul supporters as likely extremists of whom law enforcement officers should be particularly watchful. The highly controversial document released by the Missouri Information Analysis Center entitled The Modern Militia Movement, states “Militia members most commonly associate with 3rd party political groups. It is not uncommon for militia members to display Constitutional Party, Campaign for Liberty, or Libertarian material. These members are usually supporters of former Presidential Candidate: Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, and Bob Barr.”
    As the number of these documents released continues to increase, their attacks are becoming increasingly pointed. This is the first document to specifically single out specific political support (a Constitutionally protected right, no less) as an indicator of extremism.
    While government vilification of those who believe in limited government is increasing at an alarming rate, the practice has been going on for quite some time now.
    An Alabama DHS document released in 2006 entitled Anti-Government Groups proclaimed that certain terrorists “claim that the U.S. government is infringing on their individual rights and/or that the government’s policies are criminal and immoral. Such groups may hold the current government is violating the basic principles laid out by the US Constitution.” The document also asserts that the with many domestic terrorist groups, “the theme is always the same. Big [government] is bad… our government in particular is using its power immorally.”
    Why Domestic Spying Is on the Rise, Big-Time
    Let’s not forget that these documents are only the small fraction that have slipped through the cracks and been unclassified. The federal government is systematically putting into place all of the requirements for a true police state, right under our very noses.
    A police state where nationalistic orientation is cause for suspicion. A police state where being “suspicious of centralized federal authority” is the sign of potential terrorist activity. And worst of all a police state where “reverence for individual liberty” is not tolerated.
    Our Founding Fathers would have been horrified. I know I am.

      1. Do you have a link to the actual document? That would help a lot.

      2. There are a lot of people in this country, even on this blog, that scare the hell out of me (sorry for swearing, Bob!) because they believe in conspiracies and are willing to kill the ones who do not agree with them. And what’s worse is that they do not see the wrong in that.

      For the first time in my life, I feel the NEED for a gun. And it’s because of the people who end their posts with “keep your powder dry” and that if you are not a Christian you cannot be a Patriot.

      My family has been here for a very long time. Each generation since the Revolutionary War has fought for this country. Including the generation below me (I’m 53). Nobody has the right to tell me to leave my own country because THEY do not agree with my point of view. Nobody had the right make me to be threatened at having a different point of view. Nobody. Do I think that you have the right to your own opinion? Of course. Do I have the right to disagree with you? Of course.

      But your right ends where my begins. If you are willing to take the law into your own hands because your party lost an election, or something got passed that you didn’t like, then you have the right to do so. But, those of us who do not agree with that radical action have the right to stop you. It is not one sided. The best thing to do is campaign against, and vote out the people you don’t want in office. Campaign for and vote for the people that you do want in office. That is the way our country was set up. Use it, instead of trying to take unconstitutional, and illegal, measures.

      You want to talk about our FF’s? They would be absolutely appalled at the thought that a small group of citizens has decided, without court or other legitimate means, that a duly elected President should be killed. I actually saw a post on this website that said that they would look forward to our President being hung! They fought hard for the right to their own opinion, for the Constitution they drafted and ratified, for the laws that they wrote. By saying what you have been saying, you are indicating that you have no respect for anyone without your point of view.

      If you want to get rig of our President, either vote him out or get legal charges against him. But just your opinion is not enough for legal charges against him. You have to have proof that he violated the actual laws. Our laws are documented, thoroughly, I suggest you use them.

  • Incriminally Sane

    It looks like there are people with impaired judgement as corruption and war crimes are very evident since the days of Kennedy, the rationalizations to either defend or accuse any person of said crimes should be based on reality, not fear of being persecuted as a racist or bigot, if a crime is committed, the evidence should place guilt or innocence on these people period.

    What are you all afraid of? All they can do is kill you! Are you afraid of this thing called death? You should understand more the reality of life and death and stop being swayed by this fear, It is merely another plane of life, not the end of it as people believe, so just be REAL about who is guilty instead of hiding behind a label they may attach to you.

    Pritty Brains,
    I don’t mean to be condescending or insulting, I just get so furious seeing my country get hijacked and destroyed.
    And I can assure you that is exactly what is happening B4 our very eye’s, some can see more clearly than others, I am not right nor left I’m American and I believe if we don’t pull together quickly it will be too late, prol already is.

  • Grandmaw

    Well, Pitty brains, In Obama’s own words on the Larry King show were “Well, what I meant really was that some of the fears of street crime and some of the stereotypes that go along with that were responses that I think many people feel. She’s not extraordinary in that regard. She is somebody that I love as much as anybody. I mean, she has literally helped to raise me. But those are fears that are embedded in our culture, and embedded in our society, and even within our own families, even within a family like mine that is diverse” I did not make this up. It is a fact.
    And I wasn’t aware that Stanley’s grandmother married a black and had black children. I thought the grandmother’s husband was Stanley Dunham, a white man. It was Obama’s wife, not her grandmother who married a black and had black children. You argue like my EX- husband. Saying one thing then changing to something else to confuse the matter. So you can keep your “cow caca”. I don’t have to destroy the man’s character. He’s doing a pretty good job of that himself.

    • tlgeer

      Where did you get the idea that Obama’s Grandmother married a black man? He never said that, not even in what you quoted.

      • Grandmaw

        Maybe I can make this make sense. I first said earlier that Obama’s racial slur was that he stated that his white grandmother (typical white woman) was afraid of black men. Then Pritty Brains answered that “she” was not afraid of blacks because “she” married one and had black kids. I figured Pritty Brains had switched and was talking about Obama’s mother instead of his grandmother (you can go back and see comments if you want to take the time and effort) Therefore, the comments I made this time about his grandmother were actually sarcastic. I know she married Stanley, a white man as I stated in my comment and that “mom” Stanley married blacks.

      • Pritty Brains

        (NOTE: I am replying to Grandmaw even though the reply says I am replying to Tigeer. Grandmaw’s comment did not have a Reply button… so I am replying to Tigeer who is also in this thread, but it is meant for Grandmaw.)

        Well Grandmaw, if you would reply within the thread so people can follow without being confused and having to hunt down the previous comments and put them together so it makes sense, it would be much more convenient for everyone… I’ve taken the liberty to hunt down and copy the rest of the broken thread so we can see just what was said. If there are any other comments to this I can’t find them and I’m done looking.

        Your first comment below, which is the beginning of this debate, says nothing at all about Obama’s grandmother. When you suddenly threw in Stanley and the grandmother (and Obama’s wife which didn’t make any kind of sense) in the last comment below, which is towards the end of the debate, I thought you were speaking of something else altogether and I ignored it, because here, in your first comment, at the beginning of the debate, nothing was said about Obama’s grandmother (or Stanley or Michelle). I thought you were speaking of his mother here.

        I reiterate, his remark about being a ‘typical white person’ was not a slur or an insult against his mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, best friend, or his pet dog etc etc etc whomever he was speaking of. And your copy of his explanation to Larry King illustrates that.

        Now I am done with this. I’m tired of hunting down your previous posts because you comment outside the thread, in addition, this debate is going nowhere and means nothing.

        Have a good day.

        To “pritty brains” “typical white person” spoken by Obama WAS an insult. It was followed by she was afraid of black men. That made it a slur. As a “typical white person” are you afraid of black men? I’m not. Unless one should give me reason to be, which so far, none ever has.

        Oh please, that’s a crock of cow caca (can you say that over and over real fast?) The woman married a black man, she had black friends, she had children whose heritage was a black heritage so no she wasn’t afraid of blacks and Obama didn’t say that in his book…

        I have read so many distorted quotes the republicans have taken out of context and used in derogatory descriptions in that the quotes used meant something entirely different than what Obama stated and meant in his book. Read Snopes for example:

        And unless you document your own sources, Granny, I’m going to consider you a ‘typical’ republican who spreads baseless rumors and blatant lies created specifically to try and destroy a man’s character. I’d say that’s pretty /d/a/m/n/e/d/ evil. Which is par for the course.

        Well, Pitty brains, In Obama’s own words on the Larry King show were “Well, what I meant really was that some of the fears of street crime and some of the stereotypes that go along with that were responses that I think many people feel. She’s not extraordinary in that regard. She is somebody that I love as much as anybody. I mean, she has literally helped to raise me. But those are fears that are embedded in our culture, and embedded in our society, and even within our own families, even within a family like mine that is diverse” I did not make this up. It is a fact.
        And I wasn’t aware that Stanley’s grandmother married a black and had black children. I thought the grandmother’s husband was Stanley Dunham, a white man. It was Obama’s wife, not her grandmother who married a black and had black children. You argue like my EX- husband. Saying one thing then changing to something else to confuse the matter. So you can keep your “cow caca”. I don’t have to destroy the man’s character. He’s doing a pretty good job of that himself.

    • Pritty Brains

      Your stated quote “… In Obama’s own words on the Larry King show were “Well, what I meant really was that some of the fears of street crime and some of the stereotypes that go along with that were responses that I think many people feel. She’s not extraordinary in that regard. She is somebody that I love as much as anybody. I mean, she has literally helped to raise me. But those are fears that are embedded in our culture, and embedded in our society, and even within our own families, even within a family like mine that is diverse”… has nothing to do with Obama’s mother being afraid of specifically black men. You called this a slur.

      You are twisting that statement completely out of context. I am not afraid of black men, yet on the flip side I am very leery also of ‘street crime’ as anyone with any sense would be. And he is saying she is typical with this fear because many people in our society, white and black, men and women alike, also fear street crime and the stereotypes that go along with that. His statement has nothing to do with accusing his mother of being afraid of black men, not in the way you meant it. Nor does his statement reflect offensiveness, nor was it a slur against his mother as you accuse.

      Obama is not destroying his own character as you stated. The republican politicians are working overtime to try and do that for him with their fear mongering lies and anti-Obama hate machine that sends out hostile propaganda to the masses. You know, the conservative run media, republicans in politics with loud mouths etc., and people like you who spread deceitful statements out of context to what he genuinely said or literally meant hoping people who read your comments won’t realize this and take what you’re saying at face value and run off and tell the next nearest person. It’s like a spreading cancer. It’s like you’re all afraid Obama will win on his own merits so you have to try and smear his character and deeds with deceit.

      I’m not saying I approve of everything he has done. I am not saying he has never made a mistake in office. Because I don’t and yes he has. But I am saying I believe his intentions were and still are towards the beneficial welfare of this country and middle American especially. The day he was inaugurated the American people loved him, they voted him in, after all, and the world loved him as well. Everyone was happy except a very small group of people. The republican politicians. It started with them.

      They vowed to make him a one term president damn near from day one before he had a chance to really give to the people. And right from the beginning he was blocked towards making any progress at all. On the one hand the people were screaming, he isn’t doing anything! Then when Obama circumvents congress so he CAN do his job, he’s accused of being a dictator and worse. The man was damned if he did and damned if he didn’t.

      I believe if he had been allowed to bridge the chasm between the red and the blue, between the two parties as he wanted to (and it needs to be done!), he would have been able to bring about many positive changes to the people. Imagine with such solidarity, the successes of our government for this country. Our country would grow in strength and the hard working American people would prosper. But the republican party absolutely refused to cooperate with any thing resembling compromise. So as the old adage goes, A house divided cannot stand… and look at our country today.

      It’s not easy being president… not for any one of them who’s won the highest seat in the land… yet it’s one of the most coveted spots… And if by chance Romney wins, he, too, will be faced with the same abject horror Obama and all those who came before was faced with. (I highly recommend the book, The President’s Club by Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy.) Romney will not know what’s hit him until after he has sat for a time in the same chair Obama is right now. I’ll give Romney less than six months before the American people start screaming, Impeach Him! And Obama, of the two, has far more experience with being a president than Romney does and I believe if he is worked with and not against by the republicans the American people, middle America, will see alot more of those positive changes in his second term.

      And now Tigeer is asking you a question and I am interested in seeing your response.

    i just read the dicator is going to close nine border patrol stations.this just goes to show his total committment to destroying america.more american lives in danger.more drugs.and still the spinless congress allows this crap too happen.every thing he does is screwing us over.the sad thing is most people refuse to see it..

    • Pritty Brains

      Hmmmm… why don’t you try and twist the real truth around a little bit more while you’re at it. Go ahead and add more lies and deceit to your comment… call Obama a few more names as well… go on… it’s what you people DO. And then when you’re done document your sources… back your fear mongering rumors up with factual documents. That’s the thing, you can’t… because they’re lies. If anyone who is refusing to see the truth it’s you and your republican ilk.

      Here’s the truth:

      Nine Border Patrol stations to close; 41 agents to move to posts closer to borders
      July 09, 2012|By Carol Cratty, CNN

      Nine Border Patrol stations will be closed within the next six months to move 41 agents closer to the southern and northern borders, according to a spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

      CBP Spokesman Bill Brooks said the interior stations that will be shut are in some instances hundreds of miles from a border. He said the decision is in keeping with a strategy to use resources wisely and “increasingly concentrate our resources on the border.”

      Attorney general will not face criminal contempt charge

      The stations that will be closed — most of which are in Texas — are:

      – Abilene, Texas;

      – San Angelo, Texas;

      – Riverside, California;

      – Dallas, Texas;

      – San Antonio, Texas;

      – Lubbock, Texas;

      – Amarillo, Texas;

      – Billings, Montana;

      – And Twin Falls, Idaho.

      But the Federation for American Immigration Reform said the interior stations are a needed “second line of defense” to track down and apprehend illegal immigrants who make it past international borders and into heavily traveled corridors in the United States.

      Brooks said the decision has been in the works for some time, but local officials and the media are now being notified. He said the move was not influenced by any recent news events involving immigration.

      Five indicted in Border Patrol agent’s death

      There will be a budget savings of $1.3 million a year when the nine posts are closed, according to Brooks.

      Administration officials have said regular apprehensions of illegal border crossers are at their lowest levels in decades, indicating the administration’s border strategy is succeeding. That view is not echoed by some in Congress.

        Have you ever lived on the borders of Texas and Arizona? Have you ever talked to people who lived there? The news media takes everything out of context unless you have lived there.

        • Pritty Brains

          I have relatives who live in Texas, and have for 45 years. I don’t think it was the news media that took anything out of context, as I read several articles from various media and they all said the same thing… But I do think the person, None, with whom I was responding to, was taking it out of context, with vitriol I might add. It is one thing to report accurate news with anger and dismay… but to report news out of context with hostility is a whole other animal.

        Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy one a President and one a Congressmen private conversations did not think Obama should be President a junior senator who maked himself there did not vote on issues and was just put in office because it suited someones purpose for New World Order

        • Pritty Brains

          Feather, document this… If you can’t document your ridiculous allegations I am just going to ignore your future comments as those from an irresponsible radical whose agenda is just to turn people off from Obama with fear mongering lies.

          It’s one thing to try and turn people away from Obama with documented truth… but it’s another thing altogether when you do it with undocumented lies.

          Because while I know Bill and Barack were not the best of friends, Ted really liked and believed in Obama because he endorsed him. Here let me show you how to document your allegations for future use.

          Now, this is what actually was said:

          Bill Clinton helped sink his wife’s chances for an endorsement from Ted Kennedy by belittling Barack Obama as nothing but a race-based candidate.

          “A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee,” the former president told the liberal lion from Massachusetts, according to the gossipy new campaign book, “Game Change.”

          The book says Kennedy was deeply offended and recounted the conversation to friends with fury.

          After Kennedy sided with Obama, Clinton reportedly griped, “the only reason you are endorsing him is because he’s black. Let’s just be clear.”

          That doesn’t sound like Kennedy was whispering derogatory cow caca behind Obama’s back. It was old Bill who was doing it but Ted was righteously very angry about it. As he should be. Bill was the low life here. New World order, my pritty arse. *rolls my eyes*

          Oh and for more evidence that Ted and Obama were friends, here is Obama’s Eulogy to Ted. Very beautifully written as is all of Obama’s speeches. You should read it so you can educate yourself about their mutual friendship.

          • http://yahoo feather

            What one says in one corner of the mouth is not what comes out the other side. Ever been to the Cape the Kennedy compound and talked to the famous Ted Kennnedy?

    I’m not a Republican, I’m an independent and I certainly am glad this stupid discussion is over. I hadn’t intended to get into all this anyway. Bye, all.

  • Bruce in Jacksonville

    There is the additonal loss that occurred with the auto industry bailout. The dealership closings. The CEO of GM said that these closing would not save a $%&# dime. in spite of this out of a sense of fairness Obama insisted they be done. This is 100,000 needless layoffs that are Obama’s fault. We need to get the word out that he is hurting America.

  • FEDUP!

    Dennis: You make it sound like as long as he is spending more money, he is doing something good. Look at what he is doing with the money, Epa for example is in the way of everything that creates jobs. He is lying to you. Why can’t you see it? Because all you can do is point your finger, that’s why. When we are this much in debt, just spending money on things we don’t need, is not the answer!!!!!!!!!!!

    • macgyver1948

      Fedup… Actually the EPA does need some re-work but it is a very necessary entity. Without them corporations would do nothing to preserve the land/water/air if it meant saving on their expenses and if it killed or diseased people along the way the Corporations wouldn’t care. All so the Big Corporations can build their bottom lines and lower their expenses. That is a very apathetic Koch-like approach you have.

  • Christopher Romero

    The Obama plan is working perfect, if we want to get rid of Capitalism and become a great socialist or Communist Nation by all mean we have to destroy the economy of the Country, so that every one be equal (redistribution of the wealth), that’s what they did in Cuba fifty years ago and Chavez is doing it in Venezuela. Why can we do it here? If we elect him for another four years our dreams will come a reality and we will be just like Cuba, every one equal.
