Really clever American voters stick
with Obama's failed status quo

Investor's Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 11/7/2012 8:51:47 AM

Well, American voters have made their 2012 presidential choice, and now they get to live with it. On Nov. 6, the same day that saw the election of Abraham Lincoln and reelection of Ronald Reagan, they opted to reelect Barack Obama, the first time since the Founding Fathers that the country has awarded two terms to three consecutive presidents. Two-thirds of Americans have consistently said the country is on the wrong track. So, naturally they opted to stick with a stinking status quo they've whined about for years now.

I'd like to see the republicans shut down the government...for years. Will they lose seats? Sure. But not for 2 years. In other words...war.

In other words...no more checks from the (democrat) government, which purchase votes.

As a woman, I am sorry to say that 12 percent single women and 8 percent married women voted for Obama. Stupid, stupid!

"Staus quo" is the way people vote when they're scared stiff.

Be a maker, not a taker today.

Unfortunately, I suspect that in the near future, all of the grousing in polite forums will have to become something more forceful before they start herding us all into metaphorical or literal cattle-cars. Yes, that's what it's going to come to. There will be no debating or reasoned discourse with animals.

Let those clever Americans pay for my upkeep once I quit working and paying taxes. Let's see those 20-21 year olds who voted for Zippy find employment with their basket weaving degrees.

Christie may still try something in 2016. Oh, look! With Romney's defeat, the road is conveniently clear for him -- and others from the GOP's incredibly deep bench. But Christie will have as much success with that effort as he has with Jenny Craig.

Our Andrew really lets him have it.

It is mystifying, but I guess we have to realize that millions of people did not vote for Obama based on his past performance, his record, or the fate of the country.
I predict any euphoria over his victory will be short-lived.

The take on the speeches last night was right on. Unfortunately, no one on the left notices or cares. They are also thinking I/me/mine. This article expresses everything I have been thinking for the past 10 hours. Especially the part about Christie. It is going to be an interesting 4 years. The country gets what it deserves. Unfortunately, many of us will be collateral damage. I'm not proud of my thoughts this morning. Part of me hopes that the Jeep plant in Ohio shuts down as the one in China becomes lucrative. My motto: Put the pain where the problem is.

Romney did better than McCain but clearly many of us were right in saying he wasn't the right candidate. He wasn't wlling to get down and dirty like the Rats. Enough of the old rich white guys leading the parade. It's time for some young, smart, charismatic guys and gals on our side to step up. Senator Rubio, I'm talking to you. I'm depressed today, but I'll bounce back ready to fight another day. In fact, I just heard Sabato say the GOP will do very well in 2014. Always look on the bright side of life ...

More layoffs coming next quarter- just heard on CNBC. Fiscal cliff. Which is exactly what this administration wants, IMHO. Cloward Piven in full force.

And American exceptionalism down the drain.

I am disappointed too. But I am also encouraged. I have a terrific family. Beautiful wife and 2 beautiful children that are healthy and are being educated in one of the best private Christian schools in our city. I am self-employed and make a lot of money. We will be able to keep the lifestyle that we have enjoyed. We will still be faithful to God and will still tithe to His church. So life for us will continue to be great and we trust that God will reward our faithfulness. I hope that the people that put their trust in obama get what they deserve. When I see a college student that is still living at home because he is working for minimum wage I will ask him who he voted for. And when he tells me obama I will ridicule him. When Gov't workers complain about their meager 1% raise - same. Suck on it!

#15, I will be surprised if there is a GOP in 2014. The dems just proved to themselves and everyone else that they can steal an election and no one dare says boo. It is over.

Heard that they are already thinking of overturning the 2-term limit so we can keep bozo forever. And they will get it done, no doubt.

Once again, the numbers don't add up. Two-thirds of Americans believe the country is on the WRONG track yet they voted to re-elect Zero? Uh-huh. Something stinks and it's not just the garbage piled on the streets of NYC.

14 million fewer voted than in 2008 and 4 million or so fewer than in 2004.

Want to make a Democrat mad today? Remind him or her that the great Obama got 2 million fewer votes in his reelection bid than George Bush.

Tensions continued to mount over Ukraine Tuesday as that nation´s military engaged rebel insurgents in the east and Russian leaders refused to recognize the Kiev leadership as legitimate, blaming it for the growing instability. An estimated 50,000 Russian troops remain massed on Ukraine´s borders as uniformed intimidation. In the adjacent Black Sea, a Russian military jet buzzed American naval ships, the high-seas equivalent of a drive-by middle finger.

Inside the Bundy Ranch standoff:

It was a tense standoff in rural Nevada with armed protesters closing I-15 for a while and facing off against even more heavily-armed federal agents. For now, that volatile Bundy Ranch confrontation has been defused. But it´s not over by any means. And we may well experience others that do not pause in non-violence. These are profound disputes illustrative of abiding suspicions among average Americans and their government headed by a man who promised to bring people together but didn´t. And it comes in an uncertain economic time when so many have given up big dreams just to keep what

The impending death of Archie

Hate to break the news to you, but our old pal Archie Andrews is doomed. After 73 years of not looking a day over 17, the long-running all-American symbol of wholesomeness and teen goodness is set to die in July, according to Archie Comics. He´ll go out good, saving someone. Which is swell. But is this really necessary in a soiled age of cynicism, non-heroes and non-role models, lying leaders and downright criminals? It's already hard enough being a parent with all the unwholesome temptations at hand. Must we inevitably give up every enduring symbol of hope and good and fun for a one-month publicity splash?

GOP: Not just equal pay,
equal opportunities
Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article
Posted By: SurferLad- 4/12/2014 9:28:08 AM     Post Reply
There was plenty of talk in Washington this week about equal pay. The thing is — it was just that: more talk. As a woman who worked at McDonald’s to get through college…. as the mom of two young daughters … and as the elected representative of thousands of hardworking women, I have always supported equal pay for equal work. And if a woman is being paid less than a man because of gender discrimination, that is both wrong and against the law. The protections provided to women and others in the Equal Pay Act must be enforced to make certain there is no pay disparity because of discrimination.

Obama: The Republican

Hi, everybody. Earlier this week was Equal Pay Day. It marks the extra time the average woman has to work into a new year to earn what a man earned the year before. You see, the average woman who works full-time in America earns less than a man — even when she’s in the same profession and has the same education. That´s wrong. In 2014, it’s an embarrassment. Women deserve equal pay for equal work. This is an economic issue that affects all of us. Women make up about half our workforce. And more and more, they’re our families’ main breadwinners. So it’s good for everyone when women are paid fairly.

It was really just a matter of time until Kathleen Sebelius was looking up at the Obama bus passing over her bureaucratic body. On April Fool´s Day when President Obama attempted his ObamaCare victory lap with unsubstantiated enrollment numbers and failed to mention Sebelius even once, her fate was sealed.Obama is not known as Mr. Gratitude by anyone. But staring right at Sebelius in the front row of the Rose Garden and praising only Nancy Pelosi and Dick Durbin, of all people, for the trumped-up success of ObamaCare and not even mentioning his Health and Human Services secretary after five years of tough, loyal duty was

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
