Obama pushes for targeted tax,

WASHINGTON- The best thing Washington can do to spur the U.S. economy is end the "constant cycle of manufactured crises and self-inflicted wounds," President Obama says. The president said Saturday in his weekly radio and Internet speech he wanted to "talk plainly" about what´s needed to bolster the economy and create jobs. "It begins by ending what has done more than anything else to undermine our economy over the past few years -- and that´s the constant cycle of manufactured crises and self-inflicted wounds," he said. "And one way to do that is through the budget that Congress started working

Apparently the print media have spent decades assuming the general public do not own radios and are therefore able to listen to these propaganda broadcasts (D or R) without an ´interpretation´ from the dinosaur press.

The solution to all our problems is to just declare barry a king and let him rule by decree. Life would be great, then.

Oh...so bobo´s answer is a budget.
Does he mean a budget like the ones that Reid and the democratic controlled senate have given us for the last how many years has it been now ?

FTA:""Here´s the bottom line. Congress should pass a budget that cuts things we don´t need, and closes wasteful tax loopholes that don´t help create jobs, so that we can free up resources for the things that actually do create jobs and growth."

Hopefully one of his handlers will inform him that: Following the procedure required by the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974, the President presents a budget proposal for the coming Fiscal Year to Congress on or before the first Monday in February.

What are you waiting for, submit a budget already.

And not for nothing, but when UPI publishes an article without the authors name, is it safe to assume that it is coming directly from the Regime´s Ministry of Propaganda?

More spending, more taxes, the left´s answer for everything. He is forgetting that by the time the tax payer gets done paying for this new health care everyone will be broke. Still his cult will drink the new koolaid. Meantime, we point these facts out and have to carry the tag extremist.

Obama´s mantra is fairness by making everybody in the country equal. To do that he has to bring down half the country to a certain economic level and bring up the other half of the country to that same economic level. That has never worked in any place where it has been tried before, but Obama´s mission in life is to attempt it here, with the faltering Obama Care fiasco transitioning to a single payer government run health care system for the masses, leaving room of course of a first class private health care system for the elites and the rich and famous. Much higher taxes for the people in the country who are the real producers who keep the country afloat economically, and then redistributing as much of that money as possible to the half of the country that produces very little and who pays little or no taxes, but who are by far the largest segment of Obama´s supporters. Obama obviously has never thought about what the country will do when his socialist big government plans eventually cause the producers to run out of money.

I am surprised at the skepticism O´s speech has elicited. With his successful track record in the growth of GDP and employment during his tenure as POTUS... excuse me while I get off the floor from laughing. I mean not in memory have I read/heard more vacuous drivel from one person. How can he stand to listen to himself, and that is a serious question.

Bill Maher took on Paul Ryan‘s recent comments about black culture and while he didn’t necessarily agree with Ryan, he did find it striking that prominent black people have made the same point he did but haven’t been attacked by the left, which begged the question, “Is something less true if a white person says it?” Comedian W. Kamau Bell argued you can’t blame people in the inner city “for not having jobs when there’s no jobs in the inner cities.” Republican Rick Lazio pointed out that Democrats are the ones running these cities and asked what they’ve ever done

More than 100 aftershocks have been reported since a magnitude 5.1 earthquake rattled Southern California on Friday night. Most of the aftershocks have been small, but some were strong enough to be felt in the areas around the epicenter in northwestern Orange County. Meanwhile, officials surveyed the damage, which for the most part was considered minor. Fullerton police said early Saturday that as many as 50 people had been displaced by the quake. Several buildings are being investigated for possible structural damage, including some apartment buildings. The quake, centered near La Habra, caused furniture to tumble, pictures to fall off

Did baby Barack Obama live with

Only "mere scraps of data documented" Barack Obama´s mother´s "days in Seattle," writes Obama biographer David Maraniss in his 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article. And it appears that the only "scraps" of evidence of Obama´s mother´s time in Seattle during 1961-1962 was a listing in a Seattle Polk directory and a University of Washington (UW) transcript.

Quite a quartet. Quite a variety of famous men, and a woman no one ever heard of, all members of a generation rapidly headed for judgment and reward, all dead in the past few days. I knew two of them — Admiral Jeremiah Denton and Secretary James Schlesinger — fairly well, and I spent years in the nightmare supervised by Judge Walsh when he was special prosecutor in the Iran-Contra matter. I never knew Wendy Davis, but her obituary is a disaster, and I’m going to correct it. But first the famous men. It’s hard to render more honor to

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, on the heels of an internal review that cleared him in the still-churning road closure scandal, told Fox News he feels exonerated and indicated the ordeal will not impact his decision on whether to run for president in 2016. “There’s no baggage here because I didn’t do anything,” the Republican governor told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly on “The Kelly File” when asked whether the scandal would hinder a presidential run. The governor spoke with Fox News on Friday just hours before giving his first press conference since the scandal broke in early January. A day earlier,

Mark Witaschek never had a firearm in the District of Columbia, but he is now on the city’s Gun Offenders Registry. This bizarre case has drawn national attention because an upstanding citizen was tried and convicted of possessing unregistered ammunition for muzzleloader bullets, which are simply pieces of lead and copper. On Friday afternoon, I accompanied Mr. Witaschek and his wife, Bonnie, to Metropolitan Police Department headquarters to abide by the terms of his sentence, which meant registering within 48 hours. Immediately inside the front doors and metal detectors is the Gun Offenders Registry Unit, which has suddenly appeared in

SACRAMENTO -- Gov. Jerry Brown called on three scandal-plagued state senators to resign on Friday, speaking out for the first time on a series of criminal cases that have sapped Democrats´ power in the Capitol and tarnished the Legislature´s image. Brown´s statement comes hours after the Senate voted to suspend Sens. Leland Yee (D-San Francisco), Ronald S. Calderon (D-Montebello) and Roderick D. Wright (D-Inglewood). “Given the extraordinary circumstances of these cases – and today’s unprecedented suspensions – the best way to restore public confidence is for these senators to resign," Brown said. Yee was arrested Wednesday on charges involving allegations

PITTSBURGH — A suburban Pittsburgh teenager has published a study suggesting the federal government could save millions of dollars a year in printing costs by switching to a thinner typeface that uses less ink. Fourteen-year-old O´Hara township resident Suvir Mirchandani says there was plenty of talk at school about saving paper and he wondered about saving ink. He said Friday the amount of ink the government might use "was really surprising" to him. He says he hopes to make people aware choosing certain fonts for printing can save ink and money. His research began as a school project but was

Pope Francis surprised his own master of ceremonies on Friday by confessing his sins to an ordinary priest in St. Peter´s Basilica. The pope was presiding at a service intended to show the importance he attaches to the sacrament of reconciliation, commonly known as confession. After reading a sermon, he was to have gone to an empty confessional booth to hear confessions from ordinary faithful as some 60 priests scattered around the huge church did the same. His master of ceremonies, Monsignor Guido Marini, pointed him toward the empty booth but the pope went straight to a another one, knelt

The official death toll stands at 17 because those bodies have been identified, but another nine have been found and authorities are working to identify them. Ninety people are still missing or unaccounted for - but authorities have warned that they are unlikely to find anyone alive nearly a week after the disaster.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

"This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the

During his nearly hour-long papal audience, Obama said Pope Francis “actually did not touch in
