The great handout society
New York Daily News, by Andrea Tantaros

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/9/2012 5:50:31 AM

The verdict is in: After over a year of what seemed like an endless campaign of attack ads, debates and dirty politics, the country re-elected President Obama to a second term. (Snip) Obama all but bought Ohio and secured Michigan with the $25 billion auto bailout. The biggest portion of the almost trillion-dollar stimulus went mostly to create dependents through expanded Medicaid, more food stamps and the hiring of more state government workers — with little to show for it from an economic growth standpoint. Obama has created a new paradigm in America: dependency politics.

The freebie and "gimme" society won. Obama has made begging eloquent. There is no more shame in free sex and free anything. Our side is being shamed into thinking we have to think like them. They are literally trying to take down the work ethic and our faith in God.

I'm here to tell you that I will not give into their thinking. I will not be shamed into thinking that I should feel guilty for what I do or have.

More evidence that political solutions are no longer viable. We have a moral and spiritual problem. Prayer is our answer, and with God's grace we will be able to discern what actions to take on the personal and community level.

Most people have no idea what Obama actually did to the automotive industry. He did not save them from bankruptcy. He forced them into it then literally stole GM from the bondholders and delivered half of it to the UAW. Suppliers were payed off pennies on the dollar. I was there. Chrysler was forced to sell off a controlling share to Fiat. They are no longer a US corporation and there are rumors of them moving their headquarters to Italy. GM in the meantime built a glut of cars that are sitting on dealership lots unsold. Oh well. No point in explaining it. No one cares.

If Allen West wins on recount then I will know for sure that the Dems cheated on election night. West was 2,000 ahead until a supervisor (Dem) counted the same votes and got West -2,500. So on re-hand count that West is insisting on, and he wins, then I will know for sure, somehow, someway, the Dems, not known for their honesty, stole the election. THINGS JUST DO NOT ADD UP! Do you really think George Soros and Axelrod would allow an honest election?? Seriously? A handout society or a fraud, almost as big a hoax as the radical foreign student in college who is the president!

I heard someone use the new term ''givernment''. I think that's appropriate now. The takers have overcome the makers - as Ann Coulter bemoaned the morning after with Laura Ingraham: We have reached the tipping point.

Time to Go Galt. Hubby and I did this 2 years ago, knowing 4 years ago that we probably would have to. We're under the radar now - we own nothing, our household income is a tiny fraction of what it was in 2010. By design. By design for self-preservation.

We had hoped to open another small business, but now, we wonder if we can. Or should. I'm a warrior by nature, hubby a warrior by force of circumstance. We'll do what we have to do, and plan for it to get worse. And we'll continue to weight the pros and cons of that new business.

At least there were no riots, right?

What do you get when you take 39% of whites, 100% of the blacks and 80% of the Latinos and Asians? Why the USSA of course, similar to any other "developing" nation around the world, rife with corruption, electoral fraud, redistributionist economic policies and media whores/ lap dogs compliant in the cover up. Get used to it. Or move to a red state and start taking the 10 amendment very, very seriously.

I will not let Barack Obama and his multitude of unquestioning followers to force me into submission. On Wednesday morning, I was as depressed as I have ever been in my life, but I felt better yesterday and am even more emotionally strong today. We will survive this. In WWII France, I would have been a member of the Maqui. In 2012 America, I will fight, legally, openly and aggressively to hold on to our country. There is another election in two years. We must be ready for it. In four years, we will change this. The Dems will not have the head start advantage of Obama's race in 2016, but we can't assume anything. We have to match Axelrod's superb ground game and avoid ugly primary battles that leave not the best standing, but the least wounded.

We can do it. Keep the faith and don't despair.

I'm still having a difficult time in accepting the fact that such ignorance exists among American citizens .... especially those who vote left because they 'were raised that way.' None bother to question today's left by investigating what the Democrat Party has become nor have they any interest in knowing that their votes allow the laws of this land to become void.
.... I have to assume that such voters believe that only 'evil rich white guys' will suffer the consequences of this president's plots.

I now fully expect, in continuation of following the Hugo Chavez plan, that Obama will convert America into a dictatorship, ridding this country of it's electoral process entirely.
.... Many of us were very stupid to believe that Hispanics came to America to be free of tyranny.

#7, very interesting. Wish more Rep were demanding recounts.

Anybody know if the House (Boehner, Issa) can't demand review of the Federal Election Commission?? Impound some voting machines used in battleground states, then publish the software that counts the votes?????????

It is hard to believe that people are willing to live on welfare and foodstamps. What kind of life is that?

I believe we'll see a whole different set of circumstances in 2016 if the dems put up a white candidate as their nominee. You'll see those 47%'rs sitting that one out.

We need to focus on snatching 6 Senate seats to get the majority in both houses in 2014.

An L-dotter offered a link (previous article) to the Census info. I garnered that there are now 50 million Hispanics in this country since the 1990 count. Also, childhood is now considered to stretch to age 30. With these demographics of an ignorant and immature voting mass, a party other than the Demonrat party has no chance of winning anything.

On upcoming trip, Obama
will try to pivot to Asia - again
McClatchy Newspapers, by Lesley Clark    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 5:19:38 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the departure

While the media is obsessed with the Koch brothers this campaign season, a billionaire hedge fund manager from San Francisco just bought off the White House to the tune of $100 million in order to delay the Keystone XL pipeline decision. From Fox News: The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections.

Rapist’s painting hung in the White House

A painting of President Barack Obama by a shock artist with a rape fetish hung in the White House for at least two years. Artist David Choe, known for his graffiti and shock art, rose to minor fame after drawing the murals in Facebook’s first offices. He hosts a Vice show centered on hitchhiking, has shown Anthony Bourdain around Los Angeles on Bourdain’s CNN show, “Parts Unknown,” and one of his paintings graced the walls of the White House from at least 2008-2010. But Choe also has a rape fetish. On the podcast that he co-hosts with porn star Asa Akira, he

Martinez and the War on GOP Women

Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 5:01:50 AM     Post Reply
One of the Obama administration’s favorite themes is the idea that Republicans have been waging a “war on women.” Though Democrats may overestimate the appeal of this canard, the notion that troglodyte conservatives seek to send American women back to the 19th century has become a form of conventional wisdom, especially in the liberal mainstream media. But though that war is a piece of fakery rooted in the confusion between political liberalism and gender equality, there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican

Turning the tables remains the first refuge of liars called on their mendacity. “I was hurt,” Elizabeth Warren relays in her new autobiography, “and I was angry.” The second-year senator speaks of her 2012 political opponent using her claims of Native American ancestry against her during the campaign. Elizabeth Warren could pass for Bull Connor’s sister. She couldn’t pass for Sitting Bull’s second cousin five times removed. So when the 2012 debate descended into genealogists arguing over whether Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was or wasn’t partly Cherokee, the law-professor-turned-candidate winning the question meant that she had already lost it. How would American Indian

Some good folks are pig-biting mad about my recent article noting that the rate of foreclosures has dropped dramatically as a result of the reinflation of the real estate market.(Snip for tweet)Some of the vituperation is coming from the usual gang of housing justice fairness activists incensed that anybody (let alone a majority of homeowners and experts) would oppose the practice of giving public assistance to people who borrowed money with no intention of paying it back.

Timing is everything in politics and the latest Fox News poll suggests the timing of the 2014 midterm election could not be worse for President Obama and his fellow Democrats. With public approval of Congress in the single digits, senators and representatives in both parties may face the most challenging political environment of their careers. But the Fox survey makes clear that things aren´t breaking well for Obama, either, and his popularity rating may be the most important factor in determining how Democrats fare in November. Presidents have been unpopular before. Harry Truman´s approval rating sank to 23 percent at

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
