Thank you, America. Thank you for re-electing Barack Obama. Thank you for solidifying Obamacare. Thank you for ensuring that my health insurance rates will rise to the point where my employer drops my coverage. Thank you for future higher prescription drug prices, for lower quality care, for long lines to see my doctor, and for allowing a board of 15 people to determine my fate. Thank you, America. Thank you, America, for making sure our media will be taking a coffee break for the next four years instead of holding our elected officials accountable (unless they’re Republicans, of course).

Breitbart is running the following headline, with text and charming video:

Obama Supporters Celebrate: No More Israel! Kill Those Motherf***ers

But it's not as if we're surprised.

Thank you, Jack Finn, for putting here the majority of what's been rattling around my thoughts since Tuesday night.

And thank you, America, for finally settling the age-old children's riddle: If a TelePrompTer got in a fight with an Etch-a-Sketch, who would win?

I agree #3. I cringe when I think of the wonderous America I grew up with. My decades go back to the 40's. I can only tell my children and randchildren what a wonderful country this used to be, It is still good, but it won't be great again until we rid ourselves of all those who occupy our White House, Senate and House of Representatives. If only the Supreme Court could be tossed out too. I feel as though we need to sink to the bottom ( we are almost there now) before we can rise up and be a great nation once again. Like I said we are good but not great anymore. I am in deep sorrow for ourselves and our children.

#3, from your post I know he already has a head start on a lot of boys his age. You are right though. America was never a guarantee, just a ticket to take a shot. Somehow the natural competitive nature of being an American was melted away. One of the consequences of screaming 'feminists' who insisted on equality instead of fairness. Now equality is, find the lowest performing denominator and make everyone work to that. Equality of the failed.

Having insane Russians with their finger on the nuke button was traumatic, but like a breath of fresh air in today's world of mud. BTW, if someone thinks I'm unfair to put WMDs all on the Russians, they need to research the Russian sub commander who wanted to fire a nuke torpedo during the Cuban crisis or the Russian generals ready to launch ICBMs over a flight of geese.

Find a 40 year old or younger.

Explain what they voted for.

Tell them when they are age 80, there will have “built” an America that will no longer take care of them. And tell them, “Yes, you WILL build that”!

Tell them that they are voting for barbarians who have turned parents and children against each other to stay in power. These pathetic excuses for public servants will have retired with 1 million dollar pensions that we all are paying for as well as specially designed health care plans that we will never have access to!

Tell them they are destroying their own future and do not even know it.

Tell them that they will not have an inheritance because Congress will seize their parent’s assets in taxes and fees.

Tell them that Washington is supposed to work for them but now that has changed. We are all slaves on the "Big Government Plantation" working FOR THEM!

But remind them that for all of that, they have their stuff from Obama:

Phones that other people pay for
Healthcare that other people pay for
Condoms that other people pay for
Birth control pills that other people pay for

What a bargain! (or is it?)

I'm around college aged fools on a daily basis and you'd me amazed to learn just how many of these young adults believe obamacare is free healthcare.

I tried to explain reality to them but they insist I'm wrong and obamacare will work just like Medicaid, all the basics will be free. I'm not kidding, they think that obamacare obamacare = free healthcare, no premiums, no co-pays, no co-insurance.

The USA was intended to be a loose federation of independent states. That doesn't work so well for power hungry socialists who want to redistribute wealth so our federal government has grown to behemoth size and eliminated the firewalls between states. Why should someone in a ward in Philadelphia be able to exact so much revenge on me (in Texas)?

The only solution to this problem long term is to get back to where we have separation btween the states. Question is: How do we get there?

I think I know the answer, but its not pretty.

Quit all the whining. Start figuring out what you can get for free to help the Democrats bankrupt the government faster. There is a finite amount of money and I intend to do everything I can to help them find the bottom faster.

We are set up by evil forces at work using the media and many American's selfish indulgance for the biggest collapse of an empire known to mankind. The great experiment in freedom and hope for mankind has been successfully dismantled...(from within) but for a reason in God's overall planning. Don't think that the enemies of the west don't see what destruction and chaos Sandy caused and won't exploit that with a couple of well placed suitcase nukes to bring us to our knees, Then they will march against Jerusalem without any aid from Israel's once powerful friend.

You are in the minority but hang in there, Brother!

I am 62 and have already had this conversation with my three daughters (38) (36) and (29). They are in shock right now for what they unknowingly did and by the time the next Presidential Election comes, their eyes will be opened.

I am closing my 28 year old business before the end of the year and laying off two of my employees. I am selling my business before long term capital gain rates go up. My daughters were celebrating today as their father was having to close his business. They can’t believe what has happened to their father.

The Progressives have turned parents and their children against each other and what little inheritance I wanted to leave to them will be confiscated by Washington in the name of "fairness”.

Maybe my children will think twice before they vote to re-distribute their parent’s wealth with Washington.

My sacrifice and financial slaughter may awaken their self-interest in four years.
I am praying and believe it will!

I call on my fellow Eagles to soar high aloft and live for Freedom!

I vote among a group of people that waited 3-4 hours to vote that hated Zippy. Hard to believe he really won.

I would like to thank those that believe Zippycare is free for taking my income and that of hospitals, doctors, and insurance agents. I don't know any small business that is celebrating lower insurance rates or taxes.

We are at the I gots mine, who cares about you ? period in history.

#27 simply demonstrates how many highly-educated people seem to lack real-world understanding, especially when it comes to the inverse relationship between government subsidies and spheres of liberty. Even geniuses can get distracted by idyllic thoughts (e.g. an end to human suffering) to fall for things that sound great but don't work.

You'll find a lot of Marxist graffiti on basement walls at MIT, too. Just because they're "smart" doesn't make them right. I lost count of the times I saw Eat The Rich down there.

Let´s start with the biggie: same-sex marriage. Yes, polls show gay marriage is breaking out all over, but when put to a vote same-sex marriage has lost (even in California) much more often than not.

Is Texas Gov. Rick Perry “sitting pretty” for 2016 as one journalist put it, or is another presidential run likely to be a flop, a campaign that barely gets off the ground? At the Conservative Political Action Conference gathering last month, Perry showed that he can still deliver a stem-winder. And at a Fort Hood news conference after the shooting, he showed the maturity and calm that voters will look for in a presidential contender: “There aren’t any easy answers to what occurred here, and there’s no way to wish away the suffering that’s occurring.

HOUSTON – Deputies have arrested and charged a Spring couple accused of keeping a 5-year-old boy malnourished inside the stairway closet of their home. Investigators said the child was found in his diaper in the small closet by his 16-year -old brother at 9:30 p.m. Thursday. Then the teen confronted his father Bradley Bleimeyer. The teen and father got into a fist fight and officers were called to the house located in the 21500 block of Castlemont. By the time officers arrived, they said the victim’s stepmother Tammi Bleimeyer and biological father took off with the little boy. On Friday,

The 300,000-member union that was the first to endorse then-Senator Barack Obama has released a devastating Obamacare report that says Obama´s controversial healthcare program will slash worker wages by up to $5 an hour, reduce worker hours, and exacerbate income inequality. The report by Unite Here--a North American labor union that represents workers in the hotel, gaming, food service, manufacturing, textile, distribution, laundry, and airport industries--is titled: "The Irony of ObamaCare: Making Inequality Worse." "Ironically, the Administration´s own signature healthcare victory poses one of the most immediate challenges to redressing inequality," states the 12-page report. "We take seriously the promise

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Houston Mayor Annise Parker married her long-time partner, Kathy Hubbard, in a California wedding Thursday. Eyewitness News was the only Houston television station in Palm Springs for the wedding, and Mayor Parker told us shortly after she tied the knot that her wedding was "lovely." "We had a beautiful day," Parker told us. The city of Houston says Parker and Hubbard were married before a small group of people Thursday on the 23rd anniversary of their relationship. Parker´s mother and Hubbard´s sister were on hand for the exchange of vows, which were presided over by the Reverend

The float, sponsored by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), is titled, “Love is the Best Protection.” The parade will be watched by an estimated 68 million people around the world. San Diegan Karen Grube, who said her protest is not out of her religious convictions, and says she is opposed to having any wedding featured in the parade, has requested that corporate sponsors drop their funding of the parade if the

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like
