“angry, panicked political
“Well, looks like all you liberals got your wish, Santorum rolled over and Mitt's the guy.”
“They all need faith addiction rehab, all of them.”

Fun for the whole family; popcorn sales will be through the roof!”
Nothing to see here.....
“The $5 Trillion Man: Debt Has Increased Under Obama by $5,027,761,476,484.56
In the 39 months since Barack Obama took the oath of office as president of the United States, the federal government’s debt has increased by $5,027,761,476,484.56.
Although he has served less than a term, Obama is now the first American president to see the federal government's debt increase by more than $5 trillion during his time in office.
During the full eight years that George W. Bush served as president, the federal government's debt increased by $4,899,100,310,608.44. (Rising from $5,727,776,738,304.64 to $10,626,877,048,913.08.)
The $5,027,761,476,484.56 that the debt has increased during Obama's presidency equals $16,043.39 for every one of the 313,385,295 people the Census Bureau now estimates live in the United States.”
“Robin Leach: Obama Is a 'Socialist' - He Is 'Whipping Up This Racial War and This Economic Divide'
LEACH: There were more people who paid it than didn't pay it, and it looked like the end of the world. Because what happens is if you remove the monetary supply from the economy and turn it over to politicians and the government to administer, you know that everywhere you turn be it a bush that costs $300,000 to plant in a road or a GSA conference in Las Vegas, government wastes money.
Government cannot run anything efficiently. Government breeds corruption and laziness because it is a we do not care philosophy. It is rich people and it is private enterprise and it's small business owners who go out there and bust their humps to make progress in whatever line of work they are doing. It is in our human nature.
But then there is this other group of people who think that the money should be taken away from the go-getters and do-gooders because they are not going to do it and they can't do it and they won't do it. And for as long as you have a president who is whipping up this racial war and this economic divide, which he is doing quietly, but some of us see through it, you begin to realize that level the playing field is truly socialism.

Yes, but the BIG difference here is that you supported that increase in the debt when Bush was in office and you opposing increasing the debt while Obama is in office.
Isn't THAT weird?
Agreeing with Robin Leach!?!
“OMG! LMFAO! Dood is taking his news cues from the guy who made his living mooching off of rich guy's crappers!”
“"But then there is this other group of people who think that the money should be taken away from the go-getters and do-gooders because they are not going to do it and they can't do it and they won't do it."
This is one of the best sentences in the above quote. It portrays an image of all of those trust fund babies and people like Romney with their sleeves rolled working so hard in the hot sun digging ditches and pulling their own share while beating off (YIKES) the leaches of the welfare state as they pick away at all of their hard earned cash.
I can just see Paris Hilton crying now about just how unfair it is, as she checks her bank account filled with money given to her by her parents on her 1,000 dollar IPhone while on her way to brunch at the yacht club.
I really feel for those rich people. It's like really super hard work being rich.”
“Times were tough for Mitt and wifey when they had to go to school and live off of Mitt's stock options.
They know the pain of the working poor.”
“...and Mitt didn't help pay the welfare that buys off for all the crooks that didn't rob him every two days of his life. Mitt can't sell the welfare society that panders to the two ends, the rich and the poor, he thinks the rich deserve all the help as they now get.”
“Willard Romney is a worse flip flopper than John Kerry.
Hey that's weird
“From chapter 18 of Dreams of My communist Anti-American Father, Obama brags about eating dog
“When in Oklahoma do as the Indonesians do.”
“Romney put his dog on top of the car.... At least he didn't eat him!”
“Heartless DB! You can say that again...
“So yawl are teaming up with the muslims against Obama?”
“Concerned Americans should read this.
“"As a Mormon God, Mitt believes that he will be given his very own planet-kingdom in which to call his wife, Ann, into by her secret name, given only to Mitt in the secret Mormon temple ceremony. If Mitt does not call Ann into his kingdom, she will be placed in one of the lower Mormon “kingdoms of glory”, which puts Mitt in charge of Ann’s literal Mormon salvation and eternal life destination. If Mitt does call Ann into his kingdom, he and she will have relations to populate it with spirit children."
Western organized religious belief systems make me belly hurt from all the chuckling it provides.
A "planet-kingdom"? Seriously?
Will Mitt anal probe his spirit children, too?
I know the guy displays many sociopath traits; combined that with this whacky crap and oh boooooooyyyyyyyyyyyy, y'all sure have a gem running fer ya.”
“It's too bad he can't limit it to the moon like Frewty Newty? Do Spearit Children live in planet trees”
“What's an "“Ad homonym”"?”
Lets Keep Focused on What Obama Did in His Youth
“... and overlook what this POS DB Romney did in his:
"Mitt Romney’s prep school classmates recall pranks, but also troubling incidents
... John Lauber, a soft-spoken new student one year behind Romney, was perpetually teased for his nonconformity and presumed homosexuality. Now he was walking around the all-boys school with bleached-blond hair that draped over one eye, and Romney wasn’t having it.
... A few days later, Friedemann entered Stevens Hall off the school’s collegiate quad to find Romney marching out of his own room ahead of a prep school posse shouting about their plan to cut Lauber’s hair. Friedemann followed them to a nearby room where they came upon Lauber, tackled him and pinned him to the ground. As Lauber, his eyes filling with tears, screamed for help, Romney repeatedly clipped his hair with a pair of scissors."
What a phuckin A-hole bully.”
““What's an “Ad homonym”?
A dwarf lesbian with hairy legs/ or a homograph or homophone of 'ad hominem'.”
“As much as I detest Mittens, I don't give a flying f@rt about what he did as a kid in high school. I'm sure it's just a coincidence this hit piece came out a day after Obama said he was for gay marriage.”
“A hit piece? lol.
When Obama's time as a kid and community organizer becomes a non-issue, then I will apply the same metric to Willard.
Until then, Willard's time being a complete jerk off bully is in play.”
“And yes, let's DO focus on Obama's past - like attending an America hating, racist church with his children for years. That's much more telling than anything he did as a dumba$$ kid.”
“I have no problem talking about that; it's kind of beating a dead horse but if you wanna get off on that I won't stand in your way. I don't see where Obama or that pastor caused physical harm to anyone; please feel free to falsely equate the two.”
“Obama was bred by communists, raised by communists, taught by communists, mentored by communists, but let's pretend none of that happened and focus on Romney cutting a kids hair....
Hmm, that seems weird...”
“Dead horse, really? What do you think motivated Obama to say some pretty racist things during the "08 election, to prematurely call the police stupid during that idiot professor"s tantrum, to quickly jump in to the Zimmerman fray before the media was outed for deliberate race-baiting? Why do you think the racial divide in this country has turned into the Grand Canyon during his term. It"s a HUGE issue.
But the point is, this kind of thing matters because Obama is this way as an ADULT. I don"t care what Obama (or Mittens) did as a stupid kid. The man is a piece of shyt adult.

“Democrat plan: The politics of fear, division, envy, and hatred.”
“Flashback: Obama’s Sordid High School Past
Obama, by all accounts, was a habitual drug user in high school. He tried cocaine, he admits in Dreams From My Father; he “tried drugs enthusiastically.” The Chicago Tribune reported back in 2007 that Obama thanked the “Choom Gang” in his high school yearbook; “chooming” was Hawaiian slang for smoking pot. The Honolulu Advertiser reported that Obama’s senior portrait “prominently displayed … A package of ‘Zig-Zag’ rolling papers and a matchbook.” One of Obama’s close friends was arrested for drug possession during high school.
"I will confess to you that I was kind of a goof off in high school as my mom reminded me," Obama said. "I went to high school in Hawaii, so there's a lot of opportunity to goof off because the weather is really good all the time …
"You know, I made some bad decisions …. You know, got into drinking and experimenting with drugs. There was a whole stretch of time where I didn't apply myself. It wasn't until I got out of … high school, and went to college that I started realizing, man, I wasted a lot of time.”
During his high school years, Obama hung out with communist radical Frank Marshall Davis; in 2007, the Los Angeles Times reported that during his high school days, “he felt the first stirrings of anger toward whites. He says he also delved into black nationalism.” He was “offended or even enraged when white classmates adopted black street slang or revealed their underlying consciousness of his race by going out of their way to tell him how much they admired a black musician or athlete.”
“What a bunch of BFD. I'm glad we have a president that finally admits openly he did drugs.
I'd say bullying, and acting violently against fellow classmates and against their will, is a WHOLE lot worse than recreational drug use and gives a tremendous insight into character.
Sorry the Rethugs got stuck with a born loser as a candidate, but them's the breaks.”
“Of course you'd say that. He's your guy. You'd give him a pass on murder. That's just the kind of hypocrite you are.”
“Notice how y'all never mention the communist part? What about that Rosey and Lapkiss? Don't care? Totally cool with it?
Yeah change the subject and call me a DB, it all you got.....”
“Because some folks in this country just can't stand a black guy being President.
A small minority, and you know it. On the other hand, Obama institutionalized racism at the Federal level (DOJ, for example). People don't have a problem with Obama's skin color, they have a problem with racism and the growing racial divide.”
“"People don't have a problem with Obama's skin color, they have a problem with racism and the growing racial divide."
That's pure projection as a means to hide their racism-based hatred, and you know it. It makes folks like that feel warm and fuzzy but the fact that we have a black President rots them from the inside out. The attitude of these folks is no different than the folks in that little town of Rock Ridge when a black man became their sheriff.
Nope, folks can choose to continue to piss their pants over some whacky-ass preacher, supposed birth certificate "irregularities", feigned anger over supposed "institutionalized racism" (neat term, though); self-hating TBers blame all of their failures on everyone else and never take responsibility for their past support of a real phucked up Republican President who got a bunch of our men and women killed in a fake war, drove up the price of gas, drove up the debt, handed cash to his buddies in Black Water and KBR, raised drug prices for the elderly, created a failed and unfunded education mandate, etc.
Yep; Obama is sure one huge a-hole. No President is perfect; at least this one is noting close to Bush x2 and Clinton -- I'm fine with that. I know it's easy for some to not take personal responsibility for the kitchen table economics; I even get a chuckle with a see DB TBers crying over "abuse" of government hand outs while they sit in their government subsidized Rascals/Hoverounds riding around on government provided sidewalks and streets, taking government subsidized prescription meds and cashing their Social Security checks at a FDIC insured bank/credit union. A big belly laugh comes when they are questioned about what they are taking from the government and they justify it "Yea, but I deserve it".
I have my issues with Obama but I see this Presidency as a step in the right direction, and certainly not in the directions of the Presidents of the past 40+ years. We need to get over this BS that is facilitated by the current political parties. We need to stop repeating this same cycle every 100 or so years. We need to move forward as a cultural and as a country. Looking to spoiled, whiney-ass Daddy state Republicans for guidance will not get us there.”
“"Notice how y'all never mention the communist part? What about that Rosey and Lapkiss? Don't care? Totally cool with it?"
Talk about a Red Herring. Is there ever going to be a chance that you'll be able to engage in a conversation without using hyperbole and fallacies? You're going to have to pick a metric and stick to it. You really like to move the goal posts that are rooted in heavily biased entertainment mediums.
I don't really give a phuck if Obama hung out with Micky Mouse when he was 22; if we hold Obama to a certain metric than all politicos must be held by that same metric.
What's it gonna be, strat? Call your shot and stick to it for once in your life.”
“but Q you gotta understand, the TB DBs have been conditioned to fall into a terror-induced apoplexy at the mere fishy scent of a real-live commie. This fear-conditioning is only rivaled in the TB DB agenda by the conditioning that anything related to Obama automatically equates to communism, socilism, fascism (though not a single TB DB could tell you the difference between the three) or racism. From a political science perspective, it's truly a brilliant approach to drag this fear of commies up from its 40-year grave and make yahoos (the same yahoos who probably, themselves, watched each McCarthy hearing with the attention and shock of an American Idol finale) once again check under their bed for a pinko before going to sleep. Absolutely brilliant. The best part will be to see just how high this rhetoric can ratchet up once Obama wins in a landslide and gets to spend another 4 years as president of the United States.”
“Anyone have a count on how many MBAs would fit in the GITMO Cages?”
“Fepsis - - Your post illustrates things that I am very concerned about. It freaking blows my mind sometimes how people can be led by the nose at the hand of big business. The whole TBer bowel movement is a joke; it's not some grass roots thing, it's completely facilitated and funded by the likes of FreedomWorks and Dick's Army. Sure, they'll point to the Occupiers and scream like this:
yet turn a blind eye to their own masters.
It's like they've been zombified; turned into intolerant bassturds who hate absolutely everything not white, male, Christian and Corporate. Some of these folks are the poorest of the poor who get roped into defending the alters of Capitalist Pig Dogs. They can't see that their getting soaked while the fat cats laugh at their slaves.
Why do we really need to tell a women what they can and cannot do with their bodies? Is it right that we force them to be vaginally probed with an ultra sound before an abortion? Why can't people who love each other come together in government recognized relationship? What is so wrong about caring/providing for fellow US citizens who can't do it for themselves or have fallen on hard times? Is it really so wrong that I care about how fat kids are nowadays and wish something be done about that? How come I'm called a Communist when I want clean air and water? Why do people scream at me and call me a unAmerican traitor when I disagree with the government in Republican controlled hands, then berated and called a fascist when I support the government action for taking care of those in need?
It's phucking bull#&%!$.
Look the way I see it; it comes down to a few specific things:
1. The TBer bowel movements is purposefully diverting attention of past failures of the Republican party through subterfuge.
2. They are trying their damnest to hold up as many appointments hoping that those positions be filled by a Republican President on 2013.
3. They've been using Hobbsian fear as a means of a power grab.
4. They know that when times are bad people get desperate. Therefore, they are exploiting people when they are the most vulnerable and gullible.
5. There is no going back to the economic times of the 90s and early 2000s. Yet, they feed the public's desperation of living the champagne lifestyle on a beer budget with false hope.
6. They count on the stupid people who feed at the trough of propaganda/entertainment to do their bidding.”
“Like the president isn't an empty suit corporate schill...please Q.
That said, there is no way holding another man down and running your fingers they his hair isn't sexual. And it happened often enough you don't remember it?? Well that seems pretty gay to me.”
“sounds about right to me... and you hit the nail on the head that the TB DB BS movement has people fiercely and devotedly going against their own best interests again and again. "I'm hopelessly poor, but if you dare question the capitalist society that made me this way then you're a commie!" Again, brilliant propoganda marketing in action...”
“"Like the president isn't an empty suit corporate schill...please Q."
Never said anything to give that impression.
Read closer next time.
What this President does at face value is represent a break from our very negative past. It shows that we as a country and culture can move beyond racist methods and shows the rest of the world that in the United States, yes, anyone can become President.
For the most part I applaud and support what he has done during his first term; I look forward to him completing his second term.
"That said, there is no way holding another man down and running your fingers they his hair isn't sexual. And it happened often enough you don't remember it?? Well that seems pretty gay to me."
Can you make this clearer? I do not understand what you're trying to say here. Are you saying you're a homophobe?”
“I'm saying holding another man down and cutting his hair because you think he's queer is a form of rape, and the President is a warmonger..clear enough?
Some choice. Glad you're happy tho..lol.”
“Anyone can become President if backed by the Chicago mob...yeah, heartwarming.”
“"I'm saying holding another man down and cutting his hair because you think he's queer is a form of rape, and the President is a warmonger..clear enough?"
Well, now it is.
Was it because he was queer? I read that it was because he was different, a "noncomformist" per the Washington Post article. I do agree with you that it was an aggressive act and I feel that it is very wrong on many levels. Combined with Willard's other statements and actions, I would not feel that he is fit to be President. Seeing how he will say anything in order to get elected shows to me that he would be easily manipulated by the Religious Right, and if he is elected this country is going back 150 years.
"Some choice. Glad you're happy tho..lol."
Thanks; and I am confident that since this country's economic collapse (facilitated by Bush) has been stopped, and improvement being made, you're happier now as well than you would be if McCain were elected. It's OK not to publicly admit it, though.
"Anyone can become President if backed by the Chicago mob...yeah, heartwarming."
Geez. Another unproven claim fed by the biased propaganda machine. Care to back that statement up with something factual? I'm sure that if that's true many people would be interested; myself included.”
