I heard a man on NPR, with standards of measure of great Presidents. He rated him less than the standards. Washington, Lincoln,&FDR was in the top 3. All 4(Obama) suffered the ravages of war. Most historians will compare Obama with FDR. He has already been weighed with Lincoln. Truely, Technology has made Obama's Admin., more sensitive to challanging events; more than most Presidents have faced. How does He react to these events? That is primal in deciding if he has Nads, and how low they hang. He gave the Congress 4 years to Cross The Isle's. Who did not? Rm posted a few charts. Why did the Deficit lower in 2012, by 1/2? Could it be, the money made from the American People, ownin controling interest on all Banks, Financial institutions, Auto Manufactors...What else...And, selling that stock for a profit? Would the scenery be different today, if he had not done that?

 

I do get amused with the Healthcare Act. The Healthcare Industry had a chance all along, to widen pools, but chose to make many homeless, or teter on starvation, due to cancellations, High Premiums, Illegal Denial to Pay...The list is long. The badge of Honor/ Contention,should go to Hillary,and Teddy K. It was BYRD'D. Look up the BYRD Law. The Law was fully implimented in 2014, with a 10 year-Self Pay Rider in the Law. This was in 2011, with the Country, trying to find the bottom of the Great Recession that has eased considerably, today. Job's are being Created; the Barometer of Economic Life...Without 2 Wars.

 

I have not researched the implications of the Tax change on those that play in the over 1/2 Million Dollar market. Tax on people of Title, and Manufactorers is IRS territory. For that Legislation, Obama got a 15% Shutdown of  our Nation's Utilities(National Parks,Furlows). Bad move, Cruzzz. TitTat stuff. The 48 Rep's got Directives...The Show Must Go On!         B-)LV1

Trust me born1top I'm very aware he was voted in twice! What in the hell do you think he's done but but put our country into further debt? I cannot think of a single thing that he's done that has been good for this country.  He bailed GM out! Maybe if they had failed they'd make a better vehicle! Obama hasn't held a real job in his life! He's never run a business, never had to balance a check book, never had to live paycheck to paycheck! He along with most of DC do not know the meaning of honesty and honor! They are in it for themselves!

You speak of well educated people who voted for him...those people have no common sense! And I can speak of my own family. My brother-in-law is partner in a Wall Street law firm, my sister, John's wife, is an attorney, they met at Syracuse Law School, their son went there and is an attorney, my niece, their daughter, went to London School of Economics, all flaming liberals and not a lick of common sense between them! I'd take common sense over education any day!

I don't like that he wants to give my money to people who can go out and earn their own, I don't like that he allows illegals into this country and gives them more than he gives our military and the American people. Race relations in this country have gotten so much worse. He's caused people to lose their health care. If he really wanted to help the poor wouldn't he have just covered those who didn't have health care and left the rest of us alone?

He is a very smart man. People think he's disconnected. I don't think that at all! He said he'd fundamentally change America and that is the only promise he's kept!

The president of the United States is Barack Obama not once but twice elected,  many may not like him for some known or unknown reason but the voters of America has spoken. It may be that those who decided to vote for Obama wanted to see and do something different than drive our country into a deeper state of darkness and despair.  If you have any fourm of good education spiritual and secular you know many of our elected officials are untrustworthy.  They sell us and their on souls for financial gain and power, leaving us the American people jobless, fighting over low and high wages like a bunch of wild animals.  Pushing many into bankruptcy by cons both male and female with Ponzi scheme leaving retirees and uneducated people bewildered by a bunch of unrighteousness minded people. These smiling face well groom half witted people say they love American while selling us and our children down the river by playing with those who are dangerous and have the ability to rob, kill. Steal and destroy.

 

Obama gave people hope, auto industry,  banking institutions,  real estate companies were all in danger of sending this country into a bigger state of depression.  Because those who were in control and lead leadership roles did not know how to do business in a honest an honorable way. They were fearless but gutless to take a stand for righteousness and are still blinded by their own lust and greed. Putting many Americans lives in danger.  

 

That's why he won those who have a decent education seen that those other candidates would have sold every piece of America to those who are supposed to be our enemies and it is still taking place.  Because of hate not because of his skin.  Point if he agree to take that money and do business as usual he be a good olboy. It takes a real good man to love his country and fellow countrymen not to sell them out to the highest bidder, and he put his life and family life in danger. 

 

Hate and greed is destroying man kind,  it's causing division between rich and poor, the color of one's skin the level of one's education.   

And whats sad is they don't care how they manipulate one into their ignorance,  some who will not benefit from these dark minded individual run head long and join in in the celebration and find themselves crying foul at the wrong person.  The one who stiff you was that one you trusted but didn't know that individual was a no good snake just because he had same skin tone. Love you all and that's real.  Ladies I need a hug is any willing I'm 6 ft built handsome have a romantic smooth beastly kinda sexaul appetite with a desire to keep you smiling and give you a happy swag when you strut away to get us that tasty treat and beverage.

Quoting Good2BTheKing:

Dekan, I agree with you that they pretty much got the Constitution right and it has served us very well for many years.  It was not perfect.  For instance, they had to compromise on slavery in order to get passage, and that was not resolved until the Civil War.  The founders didn't intend the Constitution to be set in stone forever.  They included a mechanism for amendments.  Some important constitutional scholars argue that we need to update the Constitution for modern times.   Here's a talk by a well-known constitutional law professor who thinks that we need a new constitutional convention to solve some problems of modern democracy.  An example of the problematic sections is  the electoral college, which gives voters in battleground states much more power than voters in other areas. 

 

Edit-- sorry, it won't let me link to the video.  You can find it by searching for "Sanford Levinson  Our Undemocratic Constitution" on Youtube.


Links have been established, by the good graces of the MM Watchers. If you cut the link, the Threader has the choice of Blue linking it(copy), Pasteing to the Bar, and deciding if they wish to view the media. Copy Hyperlinks the item. Always cut,in MM compliance...

There are sufficient tests to laws, according to Constitutionality.  Our Common Law has at least 5 Parallel, Common Laws. The greatest threat to Jefferson, was the Usury System, and the 1st Bank of the USA. Proper reorientation of the tax system should have begun with LLoyd Long vs US(1993?).We would have to revisit Jeckell Island(1913?). These 25-45's can read the Constitution! Obama has reduced the Deficit by how much?

One fact of this fight, was that the shutdown of the Economy affected 15% of the function of the Gov't. All National Parks closed down, in their busy Fall season. This had an EFFECT on the voting public...The Show Must Go On!

 

 

I would Direct, we stockpile lot's of salt, now. I saw snowflakes in Kansas City! LV1

Quoting Diana3316:

Indeed, but I can't take credit G2BK.  The kudos for exposing yet another hypocrisy, goes to the ever impressive Jon Stewart and the talented writers/staff of The Daily Show for making the find!

 

I agree the claims about lack of patriotism are silly, but silence could and often is.....interpreted as agreement.  Too many unanswered blows add up to a knock out. 

 

Isn't complacency in part as responsible for injustice as the deed itself?  The lies and the liars that tell them, must be resisted les we allow our humanity, our wildlife, our habitat to be completely degraded!



Diana, I appreciate your efforts here quite a lot.  You might enjoy this article from 2012 that Paul Krugman referred to recently in the Times.  It is an interesting investigation of the sources of some of the alarmist propaganda that frustrates our side so much.  It details the connections between some right-wing fundraisers and mail-order hucksters and frauds.

Quoting 3345roc:

While your propensity for exaggeration is comical the lack of governance has rendered Washington irrelevant.  Luckily some Governors and Mayors have made some progress   by negotiating with the opposition.

 

You might also want to reacquaint yourself with which of the three branches of government is responsible for governance.


Roc,

Ahem......not only was I paying attention in Biology class....I took NOTES during Government and Political Science!  My statement stands.  They don't want to govern!  They run and hide, but then say.... oh look, look...that mean and terrible Obama is trying to run the country without us!  It would be laughable except for the offensive voter suppression activities being employed in order to keep from being voted out.  

 

The treachery this president has faced is beyond the pale.  And the next time you hear someone (Fox News) wailing that President Bush would never disrespect the troops by saluting with a cup of coffee in his hand......No Never!  Because his hands were full of dog!

The yellow curtain behind President Obama is not a Muslim prayer curtain.  It's been there since the 1960s.  There are numerous pictures of it from different administrations.  There's actually no such thing as a Muslim prayer curtain.   I found the truth in a fraction of a second by Googling "Muslim prayer curtain in White House."  

 

The Snopes article also shows other presidents having press conferences without flags.

 

I don't regret voting for Obama when I consider the alternatives that were available.  It's foolish to compare our leaders to a non-existent ideal statesman who agrees with us on every point.  

 

Our Founding Fathers were great men but they were human too. They tried plenty of things that didn't work, such as the Articles of Confederation.

Quoting Dekan09:

Diana I totally agree with your comment on Congress! I'd like to see term limits on them. The problem the founders pointed out with that it you may get rid of those who have a genuine love for the country and doing what's best for her to be replaced by a total reprobate! Congress cares more about their job and keeping that than the welfare of our country!



DEKAN, 

 

When members of CONGRESS are collecting good pay and able to vacation on our dime, they are incapable of seeing the troubles through our eyes. 

 

Know where you see the most passionate advocates? IN PTA'S, AND NON PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS LIKE ELKS AND EAGLES WHERE PEOPLE DON'T GET PAID, BUT WORK FOR FREE FOR THE SATISFACTION THEY HAVE HELPED OTHERS!!! 

 

As far as regret? 

 

REN - Go to the streets of Chicago where they protested Obama for taking care of ILLEGALS, and not our own indigent children! 

 

WAKE UP PEOPLE!!

RenaissanceBM I bet if you took a poll of those who voted for the president now they'd be sorry! Those who've lost jobs, insurance, homes, 401's. He's weakend our country by cutting our military. What is the point of that? He's having "pink slips" given to our officers in theater but yet he signed an executive order to enlist illegals? What the hell is up with that? Supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood are in his cabinet. He won't call radical Islam a terrorist group. No not all Muslims are bad and most people know that. Look at what has taken place in OK this week. Workplace violence? Fort Hood workplace violence? A woman came home from work to find her husband with his head cut off and they are calling it a suicide? How in the hell can he cut his own head off then tie his hands together? This president is a coward! Nothing is ever his fault. He finds stuff out like we do....ON THE NEWS! He runs the freaking country! He's got to come up with something better than that! He doesn't care! That's the simple explanation.

TO ALL----

 

I think most are missing the most serious issue of all here, and it ISN'T MONEY, PAST PRESIDENTS, PAST DEBTS or even FUTURE DEBTS.. 

 

In the medical field, there is a term called "TRIAGE" which refers to assessing the URGENCY of a patients care. 

IE: If you walk into an ER and are turning blue and can't breath, you take presence over the broken arm, even though that patient has been waiting for 2 hours. THEY FOCUS ON THE CRTICAL SSUES...

 

So, although finances, debts, etc. ARE major factors here and need to be dwelled on and changed, the fact remains...  

 

WE ARE FACING RADICALS AND THEY ARE BEHEADING AND KLLING PEOPLE AS WE READ!!!! 

 

If living in the sticks of Louisiana has taught me one thing, it is this...

 

A customer who spent 2 years in prison for drugs explained this one day:

 

When you are in the penitentiary, most people belong to a group. You do not go up to another man and question him from another group. Say a man from another group comes to talk to me.

BAM... I lay him out before he ever says his first sentence. 

It's how it works. 

WHY? We alreay know we don't want that person in our group and that person cannot be trusted, therefore they are USELESS to us. I punch him one time to knock him out and set the stage for others not to come jack with me or our group. 

 

IT MAY SOUND BARBARIC, BUT IT IS WHAT WORKS BEST FOR SURVIVAL IN A PLACE WHERE MANY ARE OF A VIOLENT AND UNCARING MIND SET ... 

GET THEM BEFORE THEY GET YOU... 

 

Well my friends... 

It is a sad reality we are being pelted with heinous acts as we are with the current ISIS movement, etc... 

But to TRIAGE our fine nation and to assist in securing the world's future, (we are not the only ones being brutilized) 

we need a LEADER who does not tolerate this.

 

We have CLEARED OUT 2 UNITED STATES EMBASSY'S WITHIN 3 MONTHS!!!

 

NEVER is there a good time to downsize our military... NO COUNTRY SHOULD EVER DOWNSIZE THEIR FORCES. 

It's STUPID! It makes us WEAKER! And it's the most disastrous move ANY President could ever make, regardless of any other mistakes he makes in offiice!!!!!!

 

Know WHY my ex-con customer says he hits first and knocks them out with one punch? 

As long as he is feared, no one messes with him again. 

 

NO ONE FEARS US ANYMORE...

THAT STEMS FROM A WEAK LEADERSHIP.

 

LIKE IT OR NOT-------

 

Bush Jr. was a far better LEADER, on THAT ONE PREMISE ALONE.. 

 

If someone can't see the URGENCY of this issue, I'm sorry.. No other way to put it. They are ignorant! 

 

STOP TALKING ABOUT THE PAST, AND WORRYING OVER WHO WAS BETTER, WHO DID WHAT, YADA YADA... 

IT DOESN'T MATTER! FOCUS ON WHAT IS RELEVANT, NOW!!!

 

AND AMERICA'S SAFETY COMES FIRST!

 

If you see a child playing in the road, you don't concern yourself with WHY they are there, or WHO is suposed to be watching them. YOU SECURE THE CHILD'S SAFETY FIRST AND ASK QUESTIONS LATER! 

 

COMMON SENSE PEOPLE! 

WAKE UP!!! 

 

OUR SAFETY IS AT RISK!!!!

But I wanted to say HELLO..

TOO MUCH $$$, TOO MANY VACATIONS, AND TOO MUCH TIME NOT SPENT WORKING!!
