Obama says Congress really needs to
do something about the fiscal cliff

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Posted By:SurferLad, 12/29/2012 11:19:20 AM

Hello Everybody. For the past couple months, I’ve been working with people in both parties — with the help of business leaders and ordinary Americans — to come together around a plan to grow the economy and shrink our deficits. It’s a balanced plan that protects the middle class, cuts spending in a responsible way and asks the wealthiest to pay a little more. I’ll keep working with anybody who’s serious about getting a comprehensive plan like this done. [Snip] But we’re now at the point where the law says that every American’s tax rates are going up.

As soon as the Dems come up with significant spending cuts that actually MEAN something, the Pubbies will go along. My fear is that the coward Republicans will go along anyway on anything. Serious cuts to say, defund the EPA, do away with Homeland Security and ATF, and then I awoke and taxes were sky high, spending was sky high and all was right in DC. s/o

In retrospect, the Constitution should have included one more requirement for POTUS: raised as a Christian. This 24X7 lying mussie POS is destroying the country.

It´s not just him. Obama is not the problem. He is a symptom of the problem. The problem is all the people who voted for him. Who believe him. Who think he knows what he is doing, that he is honest, that he is sincere when he claims to be above politics. The problem is American universities, which are crawling and infested with anti-American Leftists like Obama. The problem is the mass media, including the news and entertainment sectors, also riddled with Left wing partisan ideology. And of course the Democratic party, which is currently in the grip of Left wingers opposed to almost every single traditional American value.

There are tens of millions of adults who actually think Obama is on the right track and that the policies he and his Leftist pals are pushing will be good for the country. They really and truly believe this, and nothing, absolutely nothing anybody can say or do will change their minds. They are beyond listening to arguments and other viewpoints.

They are going to have to see and experience for themselves what happens.

The best thing is to go over the cliff and stay there. This country is in serious jeopardy as the number of those not paying any Federal income tax at all approaches 50%, while we are building a permanent unemployed class with benefits seemingly that are approaching infinity and disability claims are the new, early, early retirement plans.

I really do not want to pay more taxes but I prefer a system that more evenly takes from all of us rather than makes of us a nation of envy rather than aspiration.

While the political rherotic soars nobody seems to notice that fiscal year 2013, which started October 1, 2013 the borrowing makes the excesses of the past few years seem paltry.

For the first time the Social Security system has paid out more than it took in by $47B, putting it in the red. This only happened because Social Security revenues was foolishly cut by more than 20% for the past few years.

The Democrat strategy is to build a permanent voting class that pays absoulutely no taxes whatsoever but can be counted on to reliability vote for greater and greater taxes for those who have to support them. The Republicans, seemingly the inept, stupid party keep falling victim to this strategy.

So one more chance, let the sequestration on cuts go into effect, let the tax rates go up, stop permanent unemployment compensation, restore Social Security revenue and cut more spending or we won´t have to worry about falling off the clift, we will drop of Mt. Everest.

In meetings in college and from then on, he was the guy who said little, contributed nothing, just sat there and soaked up what everyone else said.

In the Illinois State Sentate he voted Present. He only presented bills for vote that the Jones guy (powerhouse whose name I forget) took from the poor senator(s) who did all the work and handed to Obie to give him a PR boost.

In the U. S. Senate he voted Present. Or in ways that were counter to the best interests of the citizens of the United States.

The story continues. He is a cypher.

Reply #11, you are so correct. I have never seen such a incompetent, useless, do nothing State Senator, Federal Senator, U.S. President. A coward afraid to speak for the U.S.A. against our complete enemies, a coward to do anything for the working Americans here. We need Herman Cain, or Colonel West, both now, they are real Americans.

Obama needs to do something about the wasteful spending that brought us to the edge of the cliff. His Gravy Train Committee must be the only people in Washington who actually work because the train is getting longer and moving faster. The Republicans were stupid enough to get caught in this no-win situation that is now called a cliff, a choice between raising taxes on everybody or raising taxes on the rich. Either way, it´s a forced tax increase with no spending cuts, exactly what Obama wanted.

If we had honest people at the networks they would be saying that obama has never worked a day in his life including the time he was in the senate. To have to listen to this fraud as his word means anything is infuriating!

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
budget hurts Americans

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

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.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

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.

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
