Hahahaha - which I'm sure their stockholders are just absolutely ecstatic about. GM stock is now double what Ford's is. I'm sure they're just ecstatic that Ford never took any stimulus.

I hate to be picky, but I'm quite certain the Ford shareholders and creditors are much happier than those of GM or Chrysler that got wiped out in their bankruptcies.

"Wiped out"? Why? GM stock is worth 37 times as much as in 2008. How were the shareholders "wiped out"?

The Republican Party first gave us the Worst President to ever sit in the White House.

Then they gave us the worst Congress ever to occupy the Capitol.

And now we have the worst Speaker of the House to oversee our Democracy.
Second in line if the President dies.

That is what you get when you vote Republican; clowns, idiots, morons, tools and pawns to Corporate Money.

They're only platform is being against everything, they don't have anything to offer, except more suffering for the Country so they can suck out more riches for their cronies and campaign funds.

Why the obstruction for progress? Because the system is rigged! any change will shift the balance out of their control.
Basically we have the best bought off Tools running our Government because Americans are too stupid to see what they are voting for, and instead vote on fear, propaganda, misinformation and advertising. All bought and provided to you 24/7 by the very same Corporations via the right wing media.
Divide and Conquer.

really?

and why don't you educate us Ron on how exactly your President "supports" radical Islam in Syria?

links to perhaps the speeches he has given supporting your accusation, and links to money or weapons that your US Pentagon has given especially to the specific groups that call for radical Islam out of the 35 different fighting groups fighting the Syrian government there right now?

and then contrast that to how your President has masterfully behind the scenes supported the overthrow of that same radical Islam in Egypt, so much so in fact that the new government of Egypt just last week told the Muslim Brotherhood to take a hike, that they would no longer have a voice in Egypt government

knowing that you were involved in all the intelligence briefings by satellite linkup in Mound, Nevada

purpose of driving US interest rates to the lowest level in over 80 years, a damn good thing

Norton,, you go goolge up about a hundred pages of info on who obama supports there now. Muslim Brotherhood, thats who. Same crapfest he tried to shove on Egypt and weve seen how that worked out. Same crapfest that arms through Benghazi were going to. Funny that the Christians there all prefer Assad to the alternative. In fact we have a lengthy history of supporting these snakes- worked out well for us when we armed them against the russians in afghanistan now didnt it.

and as far as the artificially floating stick market:

The bitter irony is that Ron thinks he's intelligent when he types.

I'm sure you're intelligent and well respected in your field Ron, you do good work. But, when you type about politics nobody takes you seriously.

Drop the hick twang, cite credible sources and you'd be on track to people listening, rather than mocking you.

Friendly advice. Seriously, I'm not trying to be a dick.

The four phoniest accounts in the sample, which included Democratic and Republican Party leaders in Washington, D.C., were those belonging to President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, first lady Michelle Obama and the White House communications shop.

Of the president's 36.9 million Twitter followers, an astonishing 53 per cent – or 19.5 million – are fake accounts, according to a search engine at the Internet research vendor StatusPeople.com. Just 20 per cent of Obama's Twitter buddies are real people who are active users.

Overall, the five most influential accounts linked to the Obama administration – the first lady has two
– account for 23.4 million fake followers.


Biden's nonexistent fans make up 46 per cent of his Twitter total, with 20 per cent being 'real' followers. The White House's followers are 37 per cent fake and 25 per cent active; the first lady's primary account is 36 per cent fake and 29 per cent active.

time to man up, Anderson

post those credible sources you read proving your President is a Muslim Brotherhood "supporter"

and then when you are done with that....take a basic grade school civics class to find out the Republicans you support control the House, where all Federal spending must be passed

really Ron, you are hurting "conservatism" by posting like a high school girl,....stupidly

ron and Werner, and several others here are the people that the Book
"Idiot American" describes in detail
http://truth-out.org/opinion/item/13281-idiot-america-how-stupidity-became-a-virtue-in-the-land-of-the-free

it remains a defining - and wry - look at how culturally and politically much of the United States has come to value ignorance over knowledge. As Pierce observes in the book excerpt following this introduction,"The rise of Idiot America, though, is essentially a war on expertise ... It also represents the ascendancy of the notion that the people we should trust the least are the people who know best what they're talking about."

They are the directly associated with the demise of science and our credibility, and economic failings in the world

Five Republican Myths on Defunding Obamacare

By Paula Dwyer Sep 24, 2013 7:19 AM PT
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-09-24/five-republican-myths-on-defunding-ObamaCare-.html

Welcome to budget showdown week, version 2013. The Republican-led House has approved a spending bill that strips out funding for the Affordable Care and Patient Protection Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. Senate Democrats this week plan to delete the defunding section and send it back to the House. House members will then have just a few days to decide whether to stand their ground and allow a government shutdown on Oct. 1, or cave to the Senate.

As this game of chicken plays out, it's worth paying attention to Republican rhetoric -- mythology may be a better description -- to justify putting the economy at risk.

Myth No. 1: Shutting down the government will stop the health-care law from taking effect.

Not so. By coincidence, the start of enrollment for the health law and the first day of the new fiscal year both arrive on Oct. 1. Unfortunately for Ted Cruz, the senator from Texas leading the defunding drive, cutting off the government spigot wouldn't stop Obamacare. Turns out, the health law's funds come largely from the entitlement programs Medicare and Medicaid, which don't need Congress's annual blessing.

As Bloomberg News reported, even the ability of new insurance exchanges to link with Internal Revenue Service computers (to see if applicants are eligible) wouldn't be affected. Such computer connections can be defined as "essential business" and would keep working through a shutdown.

Myth No. 2: Republican governors oppose Obamacare.

False. Even though Florida Governor Rick Scott, a Republican who once ran a for-profit hospital chain, gets a lot of attention for blocking Obamacare's implementation, his view is far from universal.

As E.J. Dionne reports in the Washington Post, many died-in-the-wool Republican governors are expanding their state Medicaid programs as the fastest, least expensive way to care for the low-income and uninsured. One such governor, Ohio's John Kasich, is a former House Budget Committee chairman.

When confronted by a state legislator about his heretical views, Kasich responded that, at heaven’s door, St. Peter is “probably not going to ask you much about what you did about keeping government small. But he is going to ask you what you did for the poor.”

Kasich is joined by Michigan's Rick Snyder, Pennsylvania's Tom Corbett, New Jersey's Chris Christie, Arizona's Jan Brewer and New Mexico's Susana Martinez. They aren't exactly Obamacare cheerleaders, but they are going along with some of the Medicaid expansions the law allows but doesn't require.

Myth No. 3: The U.S. is headed toward a Greek-like budget crisis.

Wrong. There are no signs of a debt crisis or bond vigilantes demanding higher returns in exchange for lending to the U.S. As Bloomberg News also reports, demand for Treasuries from the biggest buyers of government debt is as strong as ever.

These are the facts: Investors who control 81 percent of the $11.6 trillion in Treasuries, including hedge funds, sovereign wealth funds and central banks, are snapping up government bonds even as dealers and individuals back away. These investors want the income, safety and liquidity of U.S. bonds.

The budget deficit, moreover, will fall to about $700 billion in the fiscal year ending Sept. 30, down from the $1.4 trillion record set in 2009, says the Congressional Budget Office.

Myth No. 4: Polls support Republican efforts to deny funds for Obamacare.

Nope. As late as last week this was true, but not any more. The CNBC All-America Economic Survey of 800 people finds that Americans oppose defunding Obamacare by a plurality of 44 percent to 38 percent.

As CNBC's Steve Liesman reports, "Opposition to defunding increases sharply when the issue of shutting down the government and defaulting is included. In that case, Americans oppose defunding 59 percent to 19 percent, with 18 percent of respondents unsure."

Myth No. 5: Obamacare is causing job losses and is forcing people into part-time work.

Sorry, wrong again. That conclusion just isn't supported by hiring statistics, says Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody's Analytics. "I was expecting to see it. I was looking for it, and it's not there," Zandi tells USA Today. His firm manages ADP's surveys of private-sector job creation.
