Obama Demands Quick
Action to Raise Debt Limit

Associated Press, by Julie Pace

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 1/14/2013 2:59:44 PM

Washington - President Barack Obama demanded on Monday that lawmakers raise the nation´s $16.4 trillion federal debt limit quickly, warning that "Social Security benefits and veterans´ checks will be delayed" if they don´t and cautioning Republicans not to insist on cuts to government spending in exchange. "They will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the economy," he said at the 21st and final news conference of his first term. "The full faith and credit of the United States of America is not a bargaining chip. And they better decide quickly because time is running short."

FTA: "They will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the economy,"

The president gets his ransom AND crashes the economy.

What we should do very quickly is recount the votes.

Since the constitution is so flexible, let´s extend consideration of the
Electoral College´s initial estimate.

As little more than a gummint estimate, it could have been way off.
Seems to many that it was.

Quick recount is in order.
Constitution? Be damned!
Two or more can play the game, Bammy.

Social security checks come from a trust fund, separate from the federal budget.

And President Zero, as a u.s. senator, voted against raising the debt limit.
He said it was treasonous, or some such words.

Not all leaders are tyrants, and some resist tyrants. This creep communist is becoming the most hated tyrant since Caesar, and I wouldn´t be surprised if he has his Ides of March moment.

Since the President gets his authority from the Constitution, and when he violates his authority with illegal actions and demands, he betrays the trust of the American people, and becomes their enemy. I don´t think they can protect him or his cabal from a free people.

How did Nero end? Mussolini? Hitler? Stalin? Mao? Castro? Chavez? The modern tyrants all disarmed their people.

#4, was that algorezero´s Lock Box... ?

No funds for Social Security have ever been saved in any way.
They´ve all been spent as we go.
Recipients get theirs.
The rest is always spent on the general budget, very conveniently for liberoids.

Only IOU´s have been thrown in a drawer for later reference.
Once the drawdown begins, funds have to come from taxes.
Nothing has ever been saved.
It´s always all been spent each year.

In a perverse bit of post-trial agitprop, ABC News somehow recruited the one woman of color on George Zimmerman´s "all white" jury and twisted her words to reflect the presumed editorial position of ABC News. In this clip from an exclusive Robin Roberts interview which has played just about everywhere including CBS News, Roberts says to the juror, "Some people have said, point blank, ´George Zimmerman got away with murder.´ How do you respond to those people who say that?" In the edited video ABC floated about, "Maddy" answers unhesitatingly, "George Zimmerman got away with murder.

It should come as no surprise that some of the very worst rants about George Zimmerman’s acquittal are coming from an Ivy League professor. The competition is stiff, but will be hard-pressed to keep up with Anthea Butler, an associate professor of religious studies at the University of Pennsylvania. The Zimmerman verdict has caused Butler to conclude that God is “a white racist god with a problem” who “is carrying a gun and stalking young black men.” There are conclusions Butler could have reached short of equating her caricature of Zimmerman with God.

Perhaps I´m just a creepy-a** cracka´ who doesn´t get it. But it always seems that when it comes to standards, the left gives you two for the price of one. And the idea that white people "can´t" understand black folks -- a similar point to which was made in a recent article about the George Zimmerman trial -- is a good example. But before getting to that particular piece, I have a question: is the issue here that one race simply cannot understand another? Or is this really just restricted to white people?

This is what happens when the President of the United States is dragged into making foreign and defense policy decisions, instead of determining American interests and then making policy to suit. And it is what happens when the president fails to make a clear case for those policies not only to the American public, but also to his own cabinet. It had been understood that senior members of the Obama administration wanted to provide arms to Syrian rebel forces in opposition to the Assad regime.

Michelle Obama has been capitalizing on her status as a descendant of slaves. Her latest junket to Ireland shows she is definitely enjoying the 21st-century benefits of the transatlantic slave trade her radical friends in Chicago refer to as "genocide" by white Americans. According to the First Couple´s pals, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, Rahm Emanuel, and Dr. Conrad W. Worrill of Northeastern University, white Americans should monetarily compensate black Americans for past slavery.

Once that fabric is weakened, the dangers to an ordered society are extreme.

State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf did not say how long the international installations would stay closed -- only that the decision was taken “out of an abundance of caution and care for our employees and others who may be visiting.” Sunday is a normal workday in many Arab and Middle Eastern countries. Embassies in Europe and Latin America would be shuttered that day anyway.

American scientists claim the planet is undergoing one of the largest changes in climate in the past 65 million years. Climatologists at Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment have warned the likely rate of change over the next century will be at least 10 times quicker than any climate shift since the dinosaurs became extinct. If the trend continues at its current rapid pace, it will place significant stress on terrestrial ecosystems around the world, and many species will need to make behavioral, evolutionary or geographic adaptations to survive, they said.

The administration has popped the bubble of hope some small business had that switching to part-time staff would let them escape the high costs of Obamacare. The Small Business Administration on Thursday created a website to explain to businesses that the government will simply tally up the number of part-time employees firms have to determine if enough hours have been worked to essentially create a "full-time equivalent." Some smaller businesses had thought that if they could get under the 50 full-time employee cap that activates Obamacare by cutting full-time workers and hiring more part-time workers they would escape
