Original Article

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden today officially embarked on their second term, taking the Constitutionally mandated oath of office in two separate private ceremonies inside their homes. Shortly before noon in the Blue Room of the White House, Obama raised his right hand, with his left on a family Bible, reciting the oath administrated by Chief Justice John Roberts. He was surrounded by immediate family members, including first lady Michelle Obama and daughters, Malia and Sasha. "I did it," he said to his daughters after taking the oath. Biden was sworn in earlier today

There once was a boy named Barry?
and some friends named Joe, Nancy and Harry
totally useless moroons?
And complete buffoons?
Not unlike Moe,Curly & Larry

There once was a boy named Barry
Who had a composite doll named Marry
Quite inflatable we know
but she would not tang-go
and she was rather embarassing to carry

When Won´s accomplishments don´t really exist
Like the “girlfriend” he tried to enlist
In your Dreams from Your Father...
Oh please just don´t bother!
Four more years of putting up with this cyst :-(

I´m not sure anymore that in the end communism will not win. It may just win as Zero, the communist, is demonstrating.

Perhaps moving to a country that is merely socialist would be a good move.

Capitalism certainly seems to be in its dying moments.

We never heard what the heck was going on: epilepsy, seizure, TIA, Stroke -what?

MIAMI- Florida lawmakers will hold hearings this fall on the state´s "Stand Your Ground" self-defense law, which has become a lightning rod for criticism following the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin. The announcement on Friday by Will Weatherford, the speaker of Florida´s House of Representatives, marked the biggest concession yet by the state´s Republican leaders to protesters´ demands for a top-to-bottom review of the law, which allows people in fear of serious injury to use deadly force to defend themselves rather than retreat.

President Barack Obama has the summer blues. Obama is facing a sluggish economy, low job approval numbers and a combative opposition party focused on dismantling Obamacare. While rainy summer days in Washington and lengthy speeches by members of Congress and the president have become the norm, no real progress and no new proposals by the president have been made to help improve the state of the U.S. economy. The president gave a one-hour speech last week in Illinois talking about his plans to help boost the economy, and he stated that he would lay out more

This week, the Daily Beast contacted and harassed private citizens who made contributions to Sarah Palin´s political action committee, SarahPAC. In doing so, the outlet attempted to also weaken her organization by smearing it in the eyes of those most responsible for ensuring Palin´s free-market populist message and conservatism is widely disseminated. During the first half of 2013, a political off-year in which there are few elections, Palin´s political action committee spent $35,000 more than it took in. The Daily Beast seized on that number and tried to convince donors to SarahPAC that Palin was defrauding them by

In court filings this week the state said that a process to begin identifying thousands of inmates who are near the end of their prison terms and are at the lowest risk of committing new crimes if released early would be finished in two weeks.

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

The nation´s most active death penalty state is running out of its execution drug. The Texas Department of Criminal Justice said Thursday that its remaining supply of phenobarbital expires in September and that no alternatives have been found. It wasn´t immediately clear whether two executions scheduled for next month would be delayed. The state has already executed 11 death-row inmates this year, and at least seven more have execution dates in coming months.
