The last election was so long ago. At this point what does it matter what obama says anymore. His disrespect for the traditions and morals of Kenya, his fathers country by the way, is on par with most of his other actions.

Haha, sounds like you have more in common with Kenyan culture than you do with American culture.

some excerpts....

Putin slaps down Obama, again

“If he wants to stay here,” Putin said, “there is one condition: He has to stop his work undermining our U.S. partners, as odd as it may sound coming from me.”

Another Russian official was even more biting and contemptuous of President Obama: “I join the opinion that we by no means should expel him. I think Snowden is a great pacifist. This man has done no less to get the Nobel Peace Prize than U.S. President Barack Obama.”

now you libtards can do what you do best....blame bush.

War on the Unemployed

By PAUL KRUGMAN

Published: June 30, 2013
NY Times


Is life too easy for the unemployed? You may not think so, and I certainly don’t think so. But that, remarkably, is what many and perhaps most Republicans believe. And they’re acting on that belief: there’s a nationwide movement under way to punish the unemployed, based on the proposition that we can cure unemployment by making the jobless even more miserable.

Consider, for example, the case of North Carolina. The state was hit hard by the Great Recession, and its unemployment rate, at 8.8 percent, is among the highest in the nation, higher than in long-suffering California or Michigan. As is the case everywhere, many of the jobless have been out of work for six months or more, thanks to a national environment in which there are three times as many people seeking work as there are job openings.

Nonetheless, the state’s government has just sharply cut aid to the unemployed. In fact, the Republicans controlling that government were so eager to cut off aid that they didn’t just reduce the duration of benefits; they also reduced the average weekly benefit, making the state ineligible for about $700 million in federal aid to the long-term unemployed.

It’s quite a spectacle, but North Carolina isn’t alone: a number of other states have cut unemployment benefits, although none at the price of losing federal aid. And at the national level, Congress has been allowing extended benefits introduced during the economic crisis to expire, even though long-term unemployment remains at historic highs.

So what’s going on here? Is it just cruelty? Well, the G.O.P., which believes that 47 percent of Americans are “takers” mooching off the job creators, which in many states is denying health care to the poor simply to spite President Obama, isn’t exactly overflowing with compassion. But the war on the unemployed isn’t motivated solely by cruelty; rather, it’s a case of meanspiritedness converging with bad economic analysis.

In general, modern conservatives believe that our national character is being sapped by social programs that, in the memorable words of Paul Ryan, the chairman of the House Budget Committee, “turn the safety net into a hammock that lulls able-bodied people to lives of dependency and complacency.” More specifically, they believe that unemployment insurance encourages jobless workers to stay unemployed, rather than taking available jobs.

Is there anything to this belief? The average unemployment benefit in North Carolina is $299 a week, pretax; some hammock. So anyone who imagines that unemployed workers are deliberately choosing to live a life of leisure has no idea what the experience of unemployment, and especially long-term unemployment, is really like. Still, there is some evidence that unemployment benefits make workers a bit more choosy in their job search. When the economy is booming, this extra choosiness may raise the “non-accelerating-inflation” unemployment rate — the unemployment rate at which inflation starts to rise, inducing the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates and choke off economic expansion.

All of this is, however, irrelevant to our current situation, in which inflation is not a concern and the Fed’s problem is that it can’t get interest rates low enough. While cutting unemployment benefits will make the unemployed even more desperate, it will do nothing to create more jobs — which means that even if some of those currently unemployed do manage to find work, they will do so only by taking jobs away from those currently employed.

But wait — what about supply and demand? Won’t making the unemployed desperate put downward pressure on wages? And won’t lower labor costs encourage job growth? No — that’s a fallacy of composition. Cutting one worker’s wage may help save his or her job by making that worker cheaper than competing workers; but cutting everyone’s wages just reduces everyone’s income — and it worsens the burden of debt, which is one of the main forces holding the economy back.

Oh, and let’s not forget that cutting benefits to the unemployed, many of whom are living hand-to-mouth, will lead to lower overall spending — again, worsening the economic situation, and destroying more jobs.

The move to slash unemployment benefits, then, is counterproductive as well as cruel; it will swell the ranks of the unemployed even as it makes their lives ever more miserable.

Can anything be done to reverse this policy wrong turn? The people out to punish the unemployed won’t be dissuaded by rational argument; they know what they know, and no amount of evidence will change their views. My sense, however, is that the war on the unemployed has been making so much progress in part because it has been flying under the radar, with too many people unaware of what’s going on.

Well, now you know. And you should be angry.

Sarah Palin: Third Party Could Be Created If GOP Abandons Conservatives (VIDEO)


The Huffington Post | By Paige Lavender
07/01/2013 12:00 pm EDT
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/01/sarah-palin-third-party_n_3528959.html?ir=Politics

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) claimed the GOP could take a big hit if it "continues to back away from the planks in our platform," suggesting some Republicans could look into forming a third party.

"Remember, these are private parties, and no one forces us to be enlisted in either party," Palin said.

"I think there will be a lot of us who start saying, 'GOP, if you abandon us, well, we have nowhere else to go except to become more independent and not enlisted in one or the other of the private majority parties that rule in our nation,'" Palin said.

Palin hasn't been shy to criticize the GOP since she rejoined Fox News as a paid contributor in June 2013. On Saturday, Palin said it was an "absolute betrayal" for Republicans in the Senate to support an immigration bill that would give a path to citizenship to some of the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States.

Liberty University: Training Champions for Christ and Drone Pilots for the Military

Founded by right-wing theocrat Fallwell, Liberty U is among the foremost training grounds of drone pilots."

[these shits are all joined at the hip to military contractors... is about all that gets their dick up except the underage]

Professor from Right-Wing Evangelical University Touts Benefits of Domestic Drones to National Sheriff's Conference
Prof. John Marselus of Liberty University focuses on drones "to prepare Champions for Christ in all areas of aviation."



“The reason we got into Unmanned Aircraft Systems is because the School of Aeronautics wants to prepare Champions for Christ in all areas of aviation. Unmanned Aircraft Systems are part of the future of aviation. We want believers prepared and ready to serve the Lord in that area, too.”


youd be amazed what they mean by "believe"

http://en.ria.ru/world/20130702/182000045/Snowden-Slams-Obama-Over-Interference-in-Asylum-Bid.html

“On Thursday, President Obama declared before the world that he would not permit any diplomatic "wheeling and dealing" over my case,” Snowden said in his first public statement since fleeing Hong Kong eight days ago and posted late Monday on the whistleblowing website WikiLeaks.

“Yet now it is being reported that after promising not to do so, the President ordered his Vice President [Joe Biden]to pressure the leaders of nations from which I have requested protection to deny my asylum petitions,” Snowden said.

“This kind of deception from a world leader is not justice, and neither is the extralegal penalty of exile. These are the old, bad tools of political aggression. Their purpose is to frighten, not me, but those who would come after me,” he added.

our governments communications on this issue is pathetic.

they can't even keep the POTUS and VP on the same page.
