Several Questions I Want Republicans to Answer About President Obama

obama-thumbs-upWhen Barack Obama was elected in 2008, I knew the right-wing freak out over our nation electing its first black president was going to be fairly intense.  Though I really didn’t think it would be as bad as it’s been.

I figured there would be a lot of ignorance thrown his way, but I really didn’t believe that it would reach the level of unrelenting paranoia and hatred that we’ve seen.

And even after well over five years in office, you can’t convince many conservatives that their ridiculous conspiracy theories about the president that haven’t remotely come true are wrong.  They still believe them.

Heck, depending on what poll you find, anywhere from 30-40 percent of conservatives still don’t believe President Obama was born in Hawaii.  Ironic considering a tea party favorite like Ted Cruz, who many “birthers” want to run for president, was indisputably born in Canada.  

It makes absolutely no sense.

But there are some questions about President Obama I’d like Republicans to answer.

For instance, when is he finally going to come around and confiscate our guns?  I’ve been hearing the NRA and their fellow gun nuts proclaim President Obama is out to confiscate our guns since he was elected in 2008.  So, I’m just wondering, as we’re quickly approaching about the 75 percent completion mark of two terms in office, when exactly does he plan on doing this?

Another question I’d like conservatives to answer is what freedoms have they lost since he’s been president?  He’s this big “freedom-hating socialist,” right?  Well, what freedoms did they have prior to his election in 2008 that they don’t have now?

Speaking of freedom, when is this big government takeover of our health care system going to happen?  I know we have a law that states Americans must buy health insurance, and that health care plans from private insurance companies must meet certain minimum standards, but I’ve yet to see a government takeover of our health care system.  When exactly is that supposed to happen?  Time is running out.

Oh, and where are those death panels? I’m really curious to see which sick American will be the first one the Obamacare death panels sentence to die.

Also, where’s all this socialism I’ve heard about?  It’s been well over 5 years and all I’ve seen is record stock levels, high corporate profits and record-setting private sector job growth.  If he’s a socialist, he’s the worst one in history.

And can some conservative please explain to me how has Obama made the United States less safe?  Is it his high use of drone strikes against terrorism?  His threatening military action against Syria if they didn’t turn over their chemical weapons?  Or what about when he ordered the killing of Osama bin Ladin?  I guess he needed to start two wars, while not accomplishing the goals of either, to be seen by conservatives as “making us safer.”

Another thing, if he’s really this radical anti-Christian Muslim, why has he come out in support of gay rights, more specifically same-sex marriage?  You do realize that if he’s some kind of radical Islamic sympathizer in disguise, they too oppose gay rights?  In fact, they’re even more fiercely against gay rights than many far-right evangelical Christian conservatives.

I guess the same question could be posed about his stance on women’s rights.  Being that followers of radical Islamic laws aren’t known to be the most pro-women’s rights people out there.  In fact, if he were really some radical-leaning follower of Islam, his social policies would be much more in line with conservatives than liberals.

And I’m sorry conservatives, but you can’t claim “Republicans in Congress have prevented most of this from happening.”  Because, according to those same congressional Republicans, President Obama has acted unlawfully and unconstitutionally to wield his power, bypassing Congress to “rule more like a king or dictator.”

After all, isn’t his “massive abuse of power” the reason why so many of you think he should be impeached?

So, conservatives, please enlighten me.  Because I’m really curious as to why so many of your conspiracy theories and outlandish claims against the president have yet to come true.

    Stupid questions, move on.

    • onemusicguy

      I suppose that if you are unable to answer the questions, the best you can do is grab them. You say you have answers, where are they? Are you embarrassed by them? Is that why you choose not to share the your answers?

      • onemusicguy

        Grade, not grab sorry

      • giankeys luvs shemale porn

        he is a troll; I have eviscerated him so frequently that he is afraid to answer— even when I catch him casting verbal aspersions against others on these threads.

    • Retrodude

      Face facts- you guys CANNOT answer these questions, because it’s all BS.

      • giankeys luvs shemale porn

        their ” answers” are to claim we are so ignorant that THEY will NOT answer
        ===============================================
        archetypal regressive repub ploy : textbook examples of what the recite/repeat
        recite and repeat– do it enough and hang with those who do the same
        (see: FOX “news” / anne coulter/ michelle malkin/ glenn beck / rush Limbaugh / mark Levin ETC)

      • Scaramongus

        You’d think then if he can’t answer the questions he would want to engage in a conversation why HE thinks these questions are stupid.

      • giankeys luvs shemale porn

        that’s pretty good,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, should I lay that on him? then I will throw in my laundry 4 the SPIN cycle!!

    • Retrodude

      What makes these stupid questions? They seem quite legitimate to me.

    • giankeys luvs shemale porn

      stupid (????) as they are the factual ones which destroy( easy2do) all regressive lying claims against this administration
      ==================================================
      how about a ” smart” question: say– hows that taxpayer funded Benghazi investigation going???

    • Haskell Cherry

      Yo Wild Bill,
      I have to agree with you these are “Stupid Questions”. After all they were raised by the Ignorant Reich Wingers who can’t even answer their own stupidity. But then again that’s just the Standard Operational Bullshit from the Social Conservative Unified Movement. (a.k.a. S.C.U.M.) Because as we all know the party of “Personal Responsibility” is never “Responsible for Anything”.
      Since you’re obviously unable to answer your own “Stupid Questions” please allow me to help you “Move On”.
      #1. When is Obama going to “Confiscate all of Our Guns”?
      NEVER!!! The Lying Propaganda Spewing Reich Wingers have been Parroting this lie for years and it’s simple Not Going To Happen. However if the Goobermunt wants your gun, THEY’LL TAKE IT!!! But the only way that’s going to happen is if you get some Fascist Reich Winger in the White House that thinks he’s on a “Mission from GOD” to confiscate all guns.
      #2. What Freedoms have we lost under Obama?
      None. It’s that simple. As a matter of fact we have more freedoms under Obama because we’re now allowed to marry whoever you like and get healthcare with preexisting conditions. But if you can think of any we’ve lost please feel free to answer your own Stupid Question.
      #3. When is the Big Goobermunt going to take over our healthcare system?
      Unfortunately not any time soon because we need a single payer Healthcare System that allows people to get the healthcare they and their doctors see fit. Not what their Hypocrite Bible Thumping Employer decides they can have because of their “Sincerely Held Beliefs”.
      #4. Where are the so called “DEATH PANELS”?
      Well we are surrounded with Healthcare DEATH PANELS but we refer to them as the Board of Directors at Blue Cross & Blue Shield and the FAT CATS at every other Huge Insurance Company that blocks access to the healthcare procedures your doctor prescribes.
      #5. Is he a Christian or a Muslim?
      WHO GIVES A FUCK???? The last time I checked according the “EVIL Constitution”(Maybe you’ve heard of it? It’s that pesky little document the Right Wingers HATE so much.) guarantees us “Freedom of Religion”. not “Forced Christianity”!!!
      So now I hope you can “Move On” since some of your stupid questions have been answered.

      • DonRice

        You forgot something on that last item. The Constitution states that there will be no religious test to run for or hold the office of President. Just thought I’d strengthen your statement a bit more.

      • Haskell Cherry

        THANX, Don. I knew I had forgotten something. It’s nice when somebody has your back.

      • DonRice

        You’re welcome!

    • Guest

      No such thing as a stupid question, on stupid conservatwits.

    • BendExPat

      There is no such thing as a stupid question, but there are quite a few stupid conservatwits.

  • Peggy Fischer Kesler

    What’s the matter, can’t answer the questions, William?

    • William Fite

      I can answer them, but why answer stupid questions. They are meaningless questions. He is taking one comment and putting it with another comment and makes it like that is how the whole Republican Party feels about Obama. As I said stupid questions, move on.

      • BobLoblaw

        You said you can answer them. Well let’s hear it. How about just 1, your choice.

        Also you said they are stupid questions. Well who are the ones accusing him of all of this? Stupid people?

      • JB

        The stupid people are the democrats the follow the party line instead of using a single brain cell to see the truth of the president.

      • giankeys luvs shemale porn

        shall we compare the last 25 yrs of dem VS rep federal policies and the effects they have had on ALL americans??
        shall we?????? no?? awww,,,,,,,,,,,,, u pooped ur pants again??

      • Marilyn Olsen Scheffler

        That is just hilarious!! I’ve got more brain cells functioning in my little finger than most of the republicans that are in office right now. Who are the people that follow like sheep whatever is spouted on Fox news? And they repeat it to others as if it were the gospel truth. I’ve heard from my republican friends the most bizarre stories about Obama that are so far fetched it’s pathetic. One of them even told me that she heard Obama give a speech and that when he said the word “ask” he pronounced it “axe”!! Even the other republicans in the group were astounded by what she was saying. SHE hadn’t heard anything but someone TOLD her that they had heard it so she thought she would pass it on. OH yeah—-those braincells are just working overtime alright!

      • Sharon Kidwell

        You just think you have more brain cells, however your ignorance proves otherwise. Listen to Fox every once in awhile since they are #1 news and you might learn something.

      • Retrodude

        Honey, FOX is not real news, and they can legally lie to or mislead the public. In February 2003, a Florida Court of Appeals unanimously agreed with an assertion by FOX News that there is no rule against distorting or falsifying the news in the United States.

        Back in December of 1996, Jane Akre and her husband, Steve Wilson, were hired by FOX as a part of the Fox “Investigators” team at WTVT in Tampa Bay, Florida. In 1997 the team began work on a story about bovine growth hormone (BGH), a controversial substance manufactured by Monsanto Corporation. The couple produced a four-part series revealing that there were many health risks related to BGH and that Florida supermarket chains did little to avoid selling milk from cows treated with the hormone, despite assuring customers otherwise.

        According to Akre and Wilson, the station was initially very excited about the series. But within a week, Fox executives and their attorneys wanted the reporters to use statements from Monsanto representatives that the reporters knew were false and to make other revisions to the story that were in direct conflict with the facts. Fox editors then tried to force Akre and Wilson to continue to produce the distorted story. When they refused and threatened to report Fox’s actions to the FCC, they were both fired.(Project Censored #12 1997)

        Akre and Wilson sued the Fox station and on August 18, 2000, a Florida jury unanimously decided that Akre was wrongfully fired by Fox Television when she refused to broadcast (in the jury’s words) “a false, distorted or slanted story” about the widespread use of BGH in dairy cows. They further maintained that she deserved protection under Florida’s whistle blower law. Akre was awarded a $425,000 settlement. Inexplicably, however, the court decided that Steve Wilson, her partner in the case, was ruled not wronged by the same actions taken by FOX.

        FOX appealed the case, and on February 14, 2003 the Florida Second District Court of Appeals unanimously overturned the settlement awarded to Akre. The Court held that Akre’s threat to report the station’s actions to the FCC did not deserve protection under Florida’s whistle blower statute, because Florida’s whistle blower law states that an employer must violate an adopted “law, rule, or regulation.” In a stunningly narrow interpretation of FCC rules, the Florida Appeals court claimed that the FCC policy against falsification of the news does not rise to the level of a “law, rule, or regulation,” it was simply a “policy.” Therefore, it is up to the station whether or not it wants to report honestly. (Anybody surprised this happened in Florida?)

        During their appeal, FOX asserted that there are no written rules against distorting news in the media. They argued that, under the First Amendment, broadcasters have the right to lie or deliberately distort news reports on public airwaves. Fox attorneys did not dispute Akre’s claim that they pressured her to broadcast a false story, they simply maintained that it was their right to do so.

      • dylan

        Just because a bunch of people watch which gives Fox “News” a #1 rating, doesn’t mean they are the best or correct. They are not fair an balanced. Unless the person they are talking about is a far right wing Republican.

      • cherykie

        Well I heard him say he had visited all 57 states in his first campaign with a couple to go. Also he stated in one interview that John McCain had not talked about his ( 0bama’s) muslim faith. The interviewer had to correct him….As for ask and axe- many blacks pronounce it that way. It was hard for me to say asks, and I’m white, so that was a bad example. I heard the sound clip of 0bama telling one of Putin’s officials to let Putin know that he( 0bama) would have more flexibility after the election(2012) How did he know he was going to be re-elected?Evidently , you voted for him twice- I hope you’re happy with your choice in the end.

      • dylan

        states was a bit of a misstep—there are 57 places that vote for president, however. Not states, but states and or territories that contribute delegates for the nomination.

      • Sharon Kidwell

        I agree! Every senator and house of representative was elected to protect the people, not the party, or the president. I say get rid of them all and start over with term limits!

      • Frosty

        YOu never saw the conservatives votes in congress when all of them vote the very same way? Also note just how often that happens, yes just about ever time. So you seemed to be mistaken about what party follows the marching orders of their 1%.

      • cherykie

        How often do you hear about a house passed bill being voted on by the senate?? Harry Reid table tops them and won’t even bring them on the floor. So don’t blame the right for dragging heels. The real ” heels ‘ are the members of the donkey coalition.

      • Retrodude

        Just answer ANY of the questions above. They aren’t “stupid” questions. Answer any of them, please.

        Wow that is funny coming from someone who spins everything about obama instead of admitting the truth. He is the worst president that ever was and probably the worst that will ever be.

      • giankeys luvs shemale porn

        worst ever? hell yes! he single-handedly helped America see how easy it is to remove the atavistic elitist white trash regressive republican policies which have kept ALL AMERICANS from tasting the equality which ALL AMERICANS deserve. that makes him worst ever in the myopic crying eyes of white trash small dicked low IQ religious scumbags who WERE IN POWER; now having joined pterodactyls in history as “BYE BYE”

        Your answers were bullshit. Where is the evidence to back up any of your claims? There isn’t any.

        Open you blind eyes and you will see it.

      • Retrodude

        And we won’t take you seriously until you back up those claims with facts.

      • JB

        I’ll back them up like the cult followers of obama does, because I said so.

      • giankeys luvs shemale porn

      • giankeys luvs shemale porn

        ya mean like your (NOT) answering my question TO YOU about the comparison of Repub VS democrat policies ( federally) in past 25 yrs and the subsequent effects upon ALL AMERICANS? ya mean THAT ( non )ANSWER?
        you- sir– are an ersatz scumbag white trash regressive crybaby who is easy to refute.
        William “fite” is another troll on these threads who is allergic to facts,,,,,,,,,,,,,

      • Nathan Frigerio

        Yes, yes, yes. Everyone wants to focus on the stupid, wedge (social) issues, instead of the long lasting destructive fed policies. These guys (‘pubes) get voted in on ridiculous, indefensible positions based on social rights(or the dismantling of them) then get to congress and gut the protections we all take for granted. E.P.A., clean water act, clean air act, bulldozing beaches for even more condos that won’t stand up to the first category 3 storm. Basically deregulating everything and ruining the lives of millions. When these environmental disasters occur, it’s an act of God. Not the fault of the scumbags that allowed big business to foul the air and water.
        But, hey, they stood their ground on important stuff like gay marriage and those pesky teacher’s unions. Can’t the rednecks just secede? Let these theocrats ruin their own country, not ours. Where was the outrage when all Americans were required to carry car insurance? The sheep are being led to the slaughter, but we are getting caught up in their herd migration Thanks for pointing out (as I’ve read you do often) the important destruction these guys really do, unfortunately they don’t get the headlines like ACA, gay marriage and the like.

      • Sharon Kidwell

        Thank you JB for speaking the truth. I am a conservative but never had anything against Obama or any other democratic president until now. His policies are killing the working class and have caused millions to lose jobs and pay more and more in taxes! I don’t care who is in office – they are to protect the America people and not protect those who enter our country illegally!

      • Retrodude

        No dear- you have it backward. NO Republican president since Ike has balanced a budget or left a surplus. Only Dem presidents leave surpluses. And unemployment is down from when Bush left office- you guys truly have the worst memories of anybody. What cave do you live in again?

      • Retrodude

        Home • Breaking News • BREAKING: Fed Runs $114 Billion SURPLUS In April! Thanks Obama!BREAKING: Fed Runs $114 Billion SURPLUS In April! Thanks Obama!

        President Obama’s Socialist-Marxist-Nazi-Communist master plan to destroy the US Economy reached another milestone in April. The U.S. Treasury Department put a $114,000,000,000 dollar surplus on the books.

        According to CNN:

        Federal coffers saw a 7% increase in individual income taxes and payroll taxes, a 15% increase in corporate income taxes, and a 37% increase in money paid to Treasury by the Federal Reserve.

        Last month, the CBO projected that the 2014 shortfall would decline to 2.8% of gross domestic product — or $492 billion. That is well below the 4.1% — or $680 billion — recorded for fiscal year 2013.

        This devastating economic news (for Republicans) is just one of many recent disasters resulting from President Obama’s un-American fiscal policies. April also saw unemploymentplummet to 6.3 percent the stock market hit a record high, consumer spending skyrocketed, the US Uninsured rate imploded, and finally insurers confirmed Americans are paying their Obamacare premiums.

        The GOP has already attempted to prevent future surpluses by blasting through crushing $310 billion tax cuts to big business and adding that directly to the deficit. But not to worry, they did simultaneously vote down $12 million for disadvantaged children! ‘Murika!

        The GOP/Tea Party united prepared a statement to counter all this devastating economic news: “Benghazi.”

      • Retrodude

        Why is he the worst? The deficit is shrinking, Bin Laden is dead, housing market back up. DADT was repealed. What is there to hate? Please elaborate.

      • Andy Kinnard

        You answered with half truths and untruths wrapped in right wing talking points. Excuse us if we 1) don’t accept easily debunked pablum, and 2) that we, based on your comments, don’t believe you’re a registered Democrat (and if you are, it’s only so that you can vote in Democratic primaries or some such subterfuge). In short: Your critique of the Obama administration would be MUCH more believable and persuasive if it weren’t couched in the rhetoric and falsehoods of opposition ideology.

        typical liberal “militant” statement! asshat!

        I’m a registered democrat and I answered them as I see them. I hope republicans will answer too.

I tried.

      I’m a life long registered democrat but I can answer these questions with how I feel. 1: He’s doing it by pushing more and more gun laws. Making it harder to own a gun for self protection. Trying to get to the point where if they want to take your guns, they will. Look to CT. 2: The freedom from not being forced to pay a tax if you don’t want his stupid insurance plans especially when people were told they could keep their plans and doctors if you like them. period. Then it changed because “he” was the one to say whether your plan you like and could afford was good enough in his eyes. 3: The VA is pretty much the beginning of death panels, VA=government healthcare. I find it hard to believe you wouldn’t understand having a panel of non doctors saying which treatments you will or will not be allowed to have especially depending on your age doesn’t SCREAM death panels. 4: There’s way more people relying on government assistance now than there ever was, including medical assistance because of obamacare. Since people that were paying for their own insurance now can be on medical assistance putting more of a burden on states. Yet there are like 30 million people still uninsured but obamacare was supposed to make it so almost no one would be without insurance. Joke. 5: You really don’t see how we are less safe?, then you are completely blind!! Ask the family of the border patrolman’s family who witnessed him being murdered in front of them by illegals who were complete criminals and were arrested numerous times, deported and kept coming back to the US. Ask his children how nice it was to see their father shot to death in front of them!! Russia laughs at obama, did you see the laser pic on the wall of him eating a banana? No country cares about obama he has made America a laughing stock of whimpyness. 6: Muslims say it is ok to lie if it farthers their agenda. Qur’an 16:106 establishes that there are circumstances that can “compel” a Muslim to tell a lie. Secondly in Qur’an 3:28 this verse tells Muslims not to take those outside the faith as friends, unless it is to “guard themselves.” Muslims are permitted to lie: (1) to save their lives, (2) to reconcile a husband and wife, (3) to persuade a woman into a bedroom and (4) to facilitate one on his journey. Muslims are even permitted to disavow Islam and Mohammed if it is not a genuine heart-felt rejection. Muslims will tell you that concealment of a truth is not an abandonment of that truth if it benefits Islam. In some branches of Islam, taqiyya تقية (alternative spellings taqiyeh, taqiya, taqiyah, tuqyah) is a form of religious dissimulation,[1] or a legal dispensation whereby a believing individual can deny his faith or commit otherwise illegal or blasphemous acts while they are at risk of significant persecution. 7: Maybe do the research because it is the democrats that have mentioned “impeachment” much much more than republicans, they are using it as a way to raise campaign funds and bait there base. The same base as you, not the democrats who refuse to tow the party line like sheep led to slaughter. You do know there are many democrats that didn’t vote for obama, because of his policies and lack of experience in doing anything but activism. What I find sad is instead of democrats using their brains they just do whatever they are told to do and say by the party. I’m sure all the obama sheep will come out and make excuses for everything I said, because using independent thought is out of the question! Seeing and admitting the truth, is to hard so you deny. Here are a democrats answers I would like to see a republicans answers too. Let all the sheep hate begin.

      • William Fite

        I stand corrected, there were answers to those stupid questions.

      • Chris Townsend

        The ACA actually grandfathered in the existing plans…the reason some people lost their plan was not because Obama did not like the plans….lol the ones that lost their existing plans live in states where their States DOI mandated that all policies adhere to the ACA standards in that state regardless of the grandfather clause within the ACA…

      • Sharon Kidwell

        You are delusional and ignorant! Dept of Health changed the criteria for the the health care plans and it had nothing to do with the states; even the federal health department stated this in the hearings held by congress. And if you don’t think this a government take over of healthcare put another delusional feather in your cap. The government mandates what the American public must purchase – it is a violation of our rights!

        What gets me is that you people think you know what is going on and you don’t have a clue because you listen instead of investigating. Get off your lazy arse and start researching and you will find the answers!

        And their bodies will be found, full of holes, piled up outside the door.

      • Chris Townsend

        Every State has a DOI (Department of Insurance) and the DOI in each state is the governing body that determines what health plans can be sold within that state…The first state to have its DOI mandate that all plans sold in their state be ACA compliant was California…The federal law allowed existing plans to remain in effect for an additional year. Now the first thought is these plans are not being sold, they were already sold…but in California the DOI also mandated that any plan in effect in their state must be AC compliant or be cancelled and California DOI instructed Blue Cross and Kaiser Permanente to send out cancellation notice to nearly 1 million californians…The California DOI finally allowed a 2 month extention allowing the people of California until February 28 to find new coverage if their existing plan was not ACA compliant…

      • BJRCollins

        This is incorrect.

      • Christopher Hosfelt

        nope, its right on! Thats why you failed to provide any links backing your ridiculous claims. Perhaps you should do some investigating a little more in depth than your local Fox network

        umm.. Tell you what.. just look up Fox News law suits.. I guess you don’t remember the one where they actually stood in court and said it was not against the law to lie.. Not to mention the anchor that left not too long ago because of lies they wanted him to spew.
        Maybe research a bit yourself.. Hell.. just type in “Does Fox News Lie” into any search engine.. then maybe join the rest of the world in reality.

      • BJRCollins

        Local Fox? I thought it was the national FNC used for a catch-all response? Or are the Koch brothers buying up local stations in order to get in good with their followers of the leftist persuasion?

      • JB

        You must be kidding I have heard more democrats on tv with the well is it obama’s fault that “their plans aren’t good enough” or “their plans don’t meet the new set standard”! The plans were never going to be grandfathered in and obama knew it, because of the stupid standards that were set. What elderly people need birth control? You can keep making excuses but that doesn’t mean they are truthful.

      • Chris Townsend

        maybe you should actually read the law…I did and ALL existing health plans were grandfathered under the law for 12 months…it was republican Governors and states DOI’s that said only compliant plans could be sold in their state…

      • Marilyn Olsen Scheffler

        Oh my! You really are delusional!! For one thing the VA problems DID NOT START WITH OBAMA!! They’ve been going on for a long long time. And what are you protecting yourself from with the gun thing? I don’t run around with a gun everywhere I go—-what’s with that? And if you can openly carry a gun to “protect yourself” then why can’t I bring my pit bull with me to protect me from all of these horrible things that I guess are going on? As a retired educator who is 75 years old I have seen nothing change in my health care—–so I don’t know what that is all about. I should say this because at my age I supposed to be more refined and better than this but I really think you are just full of shit!!

      • Sharon Kidwell

        Marilyn, you are correct the VA problems did not begin with Obama, but the death of those who served our country did! I suspect you agree that our guns should be taken while those in office are heavily protected with armed guards. A gun is not the enemy – it is the person behind the gun that is the enemy. It doesn’t matter how many gun laws are enacted, the criminal is always going to find a way to get one and kill. As far as you insurance, since you are a retired school teacher I assume you insurance is provided by the state as mine is and you wouldn’t really see an increase in the cost because the state picks it up. How about you check the insurance sites and see what a policy would cost you under Obamacare. When I took a few years break from teaching I was paying less than $400 for full coverage – 80/20. Now for me to get health insurance that would cost me $1000. Insurance has gone up for the middle class and there are still the same number, if not more, that are uninsured. So what did this Obamacare law get us – it cost $850,000,000 just to get the webpage that is still not complete so I would say it got it nothing but more debt and more burden on the American taxpayer. Go take a laxative and you will feel better and while you are at it, do a little research so you can honestly say your knowledge is one that is or has been in education!

      • Tywebb

        ‘the death of those who served our country did’? what in the world are you talking about? And you are calling people ignorant….LOL

        Oh so you have no response and you complain about a “did” at the end of a sentence, because I’m completely sure you have the best grammar at all times. Typical liberal I don’t have a good answer to the truth so I will go with name calling, grammar, spelling, etc.

      • Frosty

        but the death of those who served our country did!

        Tell me you are really ARE NOT THAT STUPID. According to you no one died in either of Bush’s wars until after 2009? Listing year and dead;
        2003-486, 2004-849, 2005-846, 2006-823, 2007-904, 2008-314, 2009-149, 2010-60, 2011-54, 2012-1

        Please noting the drop AFTER 2009, when Obama came into the WH.

      • Leslie Ward

        You (supporters of Obama) are all being intentionally obtuse – Veterans died because under the Obama Administration – secret lists were created that put people on wait lists.

        Let me explain some truth to everyone – ALL Veterans DO NOT get to use the VA Medical Facilities. Only Veterans who served and have a Service Related Medical Condition or Injury or those who are Injured in Combat can use the VA Medical Facilities. It is the Veterans who actually Sacrificed in the Terms of a Physical/Mental Injury or Condition who were put onto these secret wait lists and many of whom died before receiving the treatment that they LIVED UP TO THE CONTRACTUAL AGREEMENT FOR IT TO BE PROVIDED TO THEM. It is a contract – for Veterans to receive Medical Care for life IF they serve 20+ years (Tricare for Life) or have a Service Connected Condition or Injury. There ARE Veterans who DIED waiting for their Medical Care – and because of the secret lists under the Obama Administration – it is because of Obama – and also proof of Federal Bureaucrats making decisions affecting the outcome of Medical Care for Government Insured Patients (i.e. Death panel). And oh by the way Frosty -’Seventy-three percent of all U.S. deaths in Afghanistan have taken place since 2009′- That too is ‘under Obama’

      • bill

        you have of info for a dip-shit

      • Ran D Dale

        We can go back 60 years and show issues that are horrendous when it comes to the care of military. They did not just start happening.

      • Lee Davis

        I would like to point out that there was no contract stating that the VA should keep these secret lists unless you in possession of a document that I have not seen that prove this “contract”. The truth is much simpler than that. Republican have been blocking funding to the VA and that is a document I can find for you! Now lets apply real world business to this awful situation. What happens when you cut funding to a source, have lots of patients, not enough staff due to money issues, a requirement that all patients are seen in 30 days and your given a bonus if you meet all the goals? What has been happening is the answer. Dishonest manager and staff are not “able” to meet the conditions for their bonuses due to short staff, no financing and long lines. To get this bonus they deceived the American people by creating “secret lists” to turn in to get their bonus. Yes there is documentation available on the bonuses as well. So what does an already troubled VA with reduced funding from reTHUGulans have anything to do with Obama. Oh it happened on his watch. Well guess what, it happened on Bush’s watch too and yes there is documentation on that as well. This has been a problem long before Obama came in office and your are a fool to think it just happened over the past 5 years. So how about you point your crooked figure at the one’s who are really responsible for this 1) The reTHUGulans for cutting funding to the VA so they could give more tax breaks to the rich and corporations and 2) the management and employees who deceived the American people and accepted money for doing to. If you require documentation please e-mail me at [email protected] and note that I will not open anything with an attachment, only texts because I do not wish to get a virus. Thank you.

      • tellthetruth

        Blatantly untrue….they need not be service connected…just a veteran. Do your homework

      • memyselfandi

        Stop watching MSNBC and CNN and you will find out all about the veterans that were left to die and many did due to the ineptness of the VA and who’s secretary is appointed by the President. So a real president would take responsibility for what his people do

      • Lee Davis

        Yes because reTHUGlan voters put Republicans in office and the reTHUGlan’s are the ones who cut funding to the VA. So where is your accountability? Let me guess you’ll pay it in the form of government shutdowns and keep voting reTHUGlan.

      • JB

        She’s talking about the VA maybe instead of pulling the liberal duck and distract, maybe you might true the truth. As usual it is still Bush’s fault.

      • Glenna Jones-Kachtik

        The thing is, the death of those who served our country didn’t begin with Obama either. There were VA scandals back when Bush II was President.
        2) NO ONE WANTS YOUR GUNS. For 5 years, you guys have been screaming about your 2nd amendment rights & how Obama was going to come & take them away. Don’t you think going into his 6th or so year that if he was going to, he could have accomplished it by now. There are MORE gun owners in the USA than ever before so his “plans” aren’t very effective & he doesn’t seem to be sweating it. The ONLY people who are talking about this are the NRA & the GUN MANUFACTURERS & those manufacturers are laughing at the people of the USA all the way to the bank. The NRA spends more money lobbying congress than ever before. You do realize that the original assault weapons ban was written by the NRA, right? Back when they were sane.
        I think you will find (outside of FOX & all the right wing hoopla) that the states that actually implemented the APCA with the medicare expansion mandate are doing well & the people who have it are generally happy with it. Have you also noticed that many of the Republicans have stopped trying to demonize it? Outside of suing Obama (& wasting YOUR money to do it) over not implementing a plan fast enough that they voted to repeal 50+ times – they have pretty much dropped the whole thing.

        Good afternoon! Texan here. So far so good, no upswing in violence. Everybody has their guns and so far, the self inflicted casualties and accidental/ incidental fatal discharges from those law abiding gun owners have been as consistently highas they were with the last administration so don’t worry! however, the problems at the border I keep reading about but have yet to see has raised a remarkable amount of xenophobic attitudes and racism towards our Hispanic friends so that’s rockin’ pretty hard.

        I’m hoping there won’t be an impeachment effort until after the 2014 election. Nothing would hurt Democrats more than for Obama to remain as the standard bearer of the Democratic Party.

        I didn’t vote for McCain or Romney and think that McCain was actually a worse option than Obama. However, in response to “After all, isn’t his “massive abuse of power” the reason why so many of you think he should be impeached? ” Kucinich nailed it when he said that Obama’s executive ordered bombing of Libya and his violations of the War Powers Act were impeachable offense. The problem is that too many Republicans supported Obama’s policy. The more hot button issue is Obama’s ‘dreamers’ legislation after Congress refused to pass it and in contradiction to the law. There are other violations of his oath of office but those two stand out. When Senator Obama was running for President , he noted, ” ‘The biggest problems we’re facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.’ = another lie.

        Marilyn the only delusional one is you. Did I say the VA problems started with obama? No I didn’t but wasn’t he the one who said he’d slow the rise of the sea level and heal the planet? Yeah he did that all right, just look at the healing all around. The problem is obama did nothing to fix the VA and the question was about death panels, the VA is government healthcare and we saw how death panels will work. I don’t carry a gun and you don’t have to openly carry a gun to protect yourself, maybe instead of blindly being a follower of talking points you could look up how many people saved their lives and the lives of their children in their home with a gun. As for your pit bull that is the most asinine comment because if your such a lowlife that you have a aggressive to the point of killing someone pit bull then you shouldn’ t own one. We have had pit bulls and ours were lovable to people. That statement about your pit bull shows how truly sick and delusional you are. Shooting someone attacking you and having your pit bull attack and maul someone just because are two completely different things. Now if someone is attacking you and your pit bull attacks them and saves your life then he/she deserves a medal and free dog treats for life. Marilyn I hardly think your refined because of your age, your a liberal and they are never refined no matter the age, they are mostly nasty name calling people when you don’t agree with them. As for your healthcare not changing yet that is because so many people are fighting against obamacare. Your probably part of AARP who fought for it, but were to stupid to read what was in it. I hope your ok if obamacare really gets a hold and with your age that if a sickness happens and the panel of non doctors deem you don’t need treatment, for you to just take some pain pills till you die you will remember your statement to me.

Your response is as usual not a response. The sad thing about you is your a liberal not just a democrat and people like your will never own up to making a mistake like voting for obama, because if you admit he is useless to both democrats, republicans, independents and any other party, then you would have to admit you were wrong. That will never happen, I feels sorry for people who live with the likes of you although if your whole family is the same then I guess you all act like any of the mistakes have never happened.

      • Baby Jesus

        Let’s look at a few other examples of socialism in this country, shall we? The military (biggest recipient of taxpayer dollars of all), roads and highways, libraries, law enforcement, emergency services, sanitation services, farm subsidies (read: FOOD), Social Security, VA, corporate and business subsidies, public parks, corporate bailouts, healthcare for 9/11 workers…shall I continue with even more horrible stuff?

      • Phil

        Farm subsidies are potentially the worst things ever. Because of them, farmers are paid NOT to grow crops. They’ve also led to rampant antibiotic use on our cows (subsidies = more corn = “let’s feed corn to our cows, even though they can’t process it properly” = antibiotics in our meat). Social Security is a negative investment: you’d do better investing in the stock market. Corporate bailouts are also terrible — if we let companies fail, then there’s an actual risk to shoddy practices. The military is over-funded — we don’t need bases around the world. Parks, roads, libraries and healthcare can all be managed without government assistance.

        These problems exist on both sides of the aisle — neither party will cut any of these things, because Democrats and Republicans are two sides of the same coin. The sooner people realize this, the sooner we’ll stop having these petty arguments with each other.

        I somewhat agree, however Social Security, is a losing proposition for many of us…I will certainly never see even close to the money I have paid in…but the alternative, is a era where 70% + of all seniors die in total poverty, and have everything they worked for their whole life taken…To presume that everyone would actually do a better job investing for their own golden years is naive at best..and eventually the realization that if we do not have a program like social security in lace a large percentage of our elderly would become horrible burdens on the state.

      • wendy

        Ok..conservatives want tiny govt. or better yet no govt. State by state can handle their own crisis’. Then cry a different tune when natural disasters strike! Then ‘where’s our govt. help?’

      • Paul Shene

        If it was actually socialist, there would be a total erasure of the Healthcare insurance industry. That did not happen. Try again when you have FACTS, and EVIDENCE.

      • Chris Townsend

        Single Payer might be considered socialist in very LOOSE TERMS…the current ACA was the republican plan, it keeps the insurance corporations and your employer in the middle of it all…The fact that democrats caved to the money of the insurance lobbyist just proves both sides will do what the one who pays the most wants…notice we now have a republican majority in both the house and senate. yet they have no plans to repeal this unconstitutional / socialist healthcare law…probably because they know it is neither socialist nor unconstitutional…in fact it was a very conservative SCOTUS that ruled on its constitutionality.

        Obama is mediocre, but far from the worst. The worst historically (considering partisans have the memory of a goldfish…)

        the problem with the economy…like business profits higher than they have ever been? Like a stock market 9000 points higher than when the Republican ran it into the ground? Like the deficit having been cut under this president? If you’re an economist and you won’t admit improvement over when Dick Cheney was the President pulling his puppet’s strings, then you’re not much of an economist…or worse, you are a biased economist…who still can’t spell a simple word: liberal…and are not worthy of any more responses from thinking people.

      • Ronald W. Mann

        Lieberals hide behind smoking mirrors, with Bill Clintoon it was mark to market accounting that blew up, he learned that from Enron. Prez zero had the fed reserve pump massive amounts of money into the economy to pump up a new bubble that will at some point take the entire economy down. Notice the first three letters of lieberal are a natural component of the overall democratic party of corruption

        I think you have that backwards..liberals think for themselves they just use their heart.. conservatives listen to fox news and the NRA…sarah palin… anything a concervative says you will hear word for word all over the news and internet..voting for Obama wasnt a mistake he is a great leader.. the mistake was not getting more republicans out of office

      • Glenna Jones-Kachtik

        You use your own brain & you spew Republican/FOX NEWS talking points???? I thought that I was listening to Sean Hannity for a bit….Liberal is not a dirty word. I didn’t make a mistake voting for Obama. Unemployment is down…the debt is down…Wall St has record profits…but I guess you attribute that to the Republicans in the house? You know what I miss???? I miss the moderates on BOTH sides who used to work together to get things done.
        You do know that on this Presidents 1st day in office a group of Republicans met to try to make sure he was a 1 term President, right? They vowed to not pass 1 bill that would make it look like he was doing a good job. They became the party of NO. Both houses of Congress passed the APCA. The act was less than it should have been because the Republicans HAD to be appeased. When he was re-elected (with both the electoral college & the popular vote) they still carried on with their plan. They have been the most do nothing congress ever.
        Democrats always have been & probably always will be a mixture of both Conservative & Liberal leanings. We are conservative when it comes to some things & liberal when it comes to others. Republicans (until the tea party took over) used to be the same way. In the end, we are all just people, you know. We need to stop this stupid game of “I’m better than you & you are dumb” & start working together again or we WILL fall apart. People such as yourself who refuse to bend are part of the problem, not the solution.

        I don’t know where you are getting this! People from other countries (this one at least, Canada) do NOT see Obama in a negative way. Obama is admired in our country; it is the GOP that raise our eyebrows because of their borderline (actual?) seditious behaviour and the appalling level of public disrespect to the OFFICE of the President of the United States of America. Russia? Who cares if Putin is laughing – Russia was an ‘enemy’ of the USA before Obama came into office, now all of a sudden he’s some role model whose lead Obama should follow? Come on!

        You might WISH that other countries see Obama as weak – but we don’t! We seem him as a strong leader, who represents his country with class and commands the respect of allied countries, but who is constantly embarrassed by the antics of American right wing b/s. We sympathize with him b/c the right wing has made his job so difficult (but he still manages to do it despite those antics).

        I’m so tired of seeing right wingers making claims about how other countries see President Obama – trust me, we don’t see him the same way you do.

I did vote, but not for those guys. Now, ask the POSiC if he can, for once, tell us the truth. Start with Fast and Furious and we’ll work our way through the IRS, NSA, Benghazi, etc. Ask him why the leaders of most countries around the world laught at him and never take him serious.

      • http://sandsregency.com ThomT’s

        You are wrong Retrodude. (I see you’re resorting to your only weapon – name calling) Benghazi has not been debunked. Primarily because the witnesses have not been made available for testimony. And any military warrior who wanted to help has been retired. As for the IRS; in the law if you destroy evidence it is assumed that the evidence would have harmed you. At some point Learner will be forced to testify or she’ll be in jail. Hopefully they’ll at least find her in contempt and she can join the ranks of the POSiC’s Attorney General, also held in contempt over Fast and Furious.
        I know I’ll survive, but no thanks to all of your cross-threaded liberals. You and Barry are doing your best to destroy what was built over the last 200 + years.

      • Retrodude

        “During the George W. Bush period, there were 13 attacks on various embassies and consulates around the world. Sixty people died.”

        As the U.S. House of Representatives was readying a new special committee to investigate the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, many Democrats were arguing that continuing to probe the Sept. 11, 2012, attack — which killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens — amounted to a political witch hunt.

        On May 5, 2014, Rep. John Garamendi, D-Calif., told MSNBC host Ed Schultz that there has already been exhaustive testimony and investigation of the incident.

        “This thing is just going on and on to boredom actually,” Garamendi said. “The Armed Services Committee actually did a hearing and the result was there’s nothing here. That’s obviously a great tragedy, but Ed, during the George W. Bush period, there were 13 attacks on various embassies and consulates around the world. Sixty people died. In Karachi, there was a death of one of our diplomats, and those were not investigated during that period of time because it was a tragedy.”

        Readers asked us whether it’s true that under Bush, “there were 13 attacks on various embassies and consulates around the world, (and) 60 people died.”

        We turned to the Global Terrorism Database, a project headquartered at the University of Maryland. The database documents terrorist attacks around the world going back to the 1970s, and experts told us it is the best resource available for this fact-check.

        We searched the database for descriptions between January 2001 and January 2009 that included the term “U.S. embassy.” We supplemented these with a few other attacks listed in aHuffington Post opinion piece that Garamendi’s staff said was their main source for the claim. The Huffington Post column Garamendi cited purposely didn’t count any attacks in Baghdad. So we decided to construct our count from scratch.

        While Garamendi spoke of “embassies and consulates,” we found several U.S. diplomatic targets killed in the line of duty outside official compounds — such as in convoys or their homes — and we included them in our count. Once we cross-referenced the attacks in the article and those in the database, we narrowed down the total to 39 attacks or attempted attacks on U.S. embassies and embassy personnel.

        Of these 39 attacks, 20 resulted in at least one fatality. (Our complete list is here.) This is higher than Garamendi’s claim, though if you only count attacks on embassy and consular property, there were 13.

        Garamendi also understated the number of deaths. In the 20 incidents with at least one fatality, the total death toll was 87 — quite a few more than the 60 Garamendi cited. If you only count those at embassies and consulates proper, the number of deaths drops to 66.

        We should note that the vast majority of these deaths were not Americans. We counted 63 deaths that were either of non-Americans or of people whose nationality is unknown. Another three were U.S. civilians. Another 21 were workers at the U.S embassy or consulate, either of American or foreign nationality.

        So, using what we think is the most reasonable definition, Garamendi’s numbers are a bit low.

        What about the implicit comparison he made between Benghazi and these previous attacks? That’s a little shakier.

        Generally, the experts we contacted agreed that Garamendi was making a reasonable point that there has been a steady, and comparatively overlooked, series of deadly attacks on U.S. embassies in recent years.

        Still, these experts also said there are valid reasons to treat Benghazi differently from the earlier attacks.

        “Is Benghazi different? Absolutely,” said Daveed Gartenstein-Ross, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and an adjunct assistant professor in Georgetown University’s security studies program.

        One reason, he said, is that an American ambassador died in the attack, which hadn’t happened since the 1970s. Another relevant question, Gartenstein-Ross said, “is whether what happened was put to the American people in an honest manner, not just with respect to the administration, but also with respect to the intelligence community.”

        Gartenstein-Ross added that he wasn’t endorsing “how the Republicans go about” investigating this question. But he did say it’s a “real, legitimate question.”

        “As always, what causes the problem is not so much what happens, but the response to it,” said Theodore R. Bromund, a senior research fellow at the conservative Heritage Foundation. “‘If the administration had come out shortly after the attack and said, ‘Our consulate was attacked by organized Islamist forces, and we will pursue these terrorists and bring them to justice, one way or the other,’ I very much doubt there would be much juice in these hearings, if indeed they were being held at all.”

        Lance Janda, a military historian at Cameron University, agreed that Benghazi brings up important issues.

        “We probably should have had more United States forces on site or at least nearby,” he said. And the administration had a “muddled response in terms of releasing information,” he added.

        Our ruling

      • http://sandsregency.com ThomT’s

        Please note that I have not been defending President George W. Bush or his administration. This discussion is about what happened in Benghazi and nothing before it excuses it. The old question of course is if President George W. Bush jumped off of a bridge should we insiste that the current POSiC do the same. How do you excuse it. And when the dems claimed to be investigating Benghazi it was said by somebody (I’m sorry but I don’t remember who it was) that the only reason was so that when the real investigation began they could claim that it had already been investigated. Sure as heck, that is exactly what occured. I notice that you say that also. Rep. Garamendi, D-Calif, said exactly that.
        We will continue to disagree. I know that it is impossible to argue somebody out of something that they weren’t argued into. I have voted both Republican and Democrat over the years and I, like everybody else, will vote for the person that thinks the most like me. I can’t believe that anybody thinks like Obama.

      • Retrodude

        For God’s sakes- when you work at an embassy or consulate overseas, guess what? You are running the risk of an attack. It’s a dangerous job. Accidents happen. Even Republicans are now quietly admitting that there was simply no wrong-doing over Benghazi. Unfortunately, 4 lives were lost, which is a shame. But, it happens when you work at an embassy. It was not an evil plot, though.

      • http://sandsregency.com ThomT’s

        It was Hillary’s job, and her’s alone, to ensure the security at the embassy. They ignored pleas for more security and were ignored. The military wanted to help on the day of the attack and were told to stand down. Obama, suprise, lied. Why? So that it wouldn’t detract from the upcoming election. He has not allowed witnesses to testify. Why? If there is nothing to hide, why are they hiding things. Time for democrats to pack their wall locker and call it the end of the season.

      • http://sandsregency.com ThomT’s

        It is old men that fought for this country to guarantee the safety of the Constitution. You know, that document that Barry is fighting against just as hard as he can.

        How many days have you spent in uniform to defend our Constitution? President Ronald Reagan told us that every generation must fight to remain free. Any of your friends in the military? Probably not. My guess is that you are all takers.

        I see you’ve moved from name calling to cursing. We are done talking.

        Be well and good luck.

        I can’t believe millions think like YOU and Fox News.

      • Retrodude

        Nobody is trying to destroy America- what a stupid thought. Why on earth would somebody go through the hell of the presidency, simply to destroy a country? Sorry if us crazy liberals just want the same equality for all Americans, not just the white, heterosexual, Christians. We don’t want your guns, we want to keep abortion safe and legal, we ended DADT, we are working on gay marriage, and restoring the middle class. We are bringing down the deficit too. Those pesky liberals!

      • http://sandsregency.com ThomT’s

        Barry is not trying to destroy America, he is accomplishing it. I am extremely sorry that I spent time in the military defending a nation that he is ruining. I suffer from the effects of Agent Orange and he is making it a total waste.
        I too am all for equality for all Americans, but not for illegal immigrants. I am for better and more extensive background checks and enforced waiting periods on gun purchases. I am for prosecuting those who attempt to purchase guns but are discovered through the background check to be unable to purchase the gun. And I am against registering my guns, and will never do it, but I believe it is the first step to confiscation. Try to take my guns and somebody, maybe me, is going to lose blood. I am for gay marriage.
        Barry has ruined the middle class. There is no middle class. They have been put out of business by the addition of million on the welfare rolls. I believe in help for the needy not the greedy. If you can work you’d damn well better do it.
        You cannot reduce the deficit by spending more than your taking in. Period.

      • Retrodude

        Wrong again. Bush wiped out the middle class. Obama is slowly building it back up. You guys are pathetic.

        And if you are afraid of background checks or registering your guns, then you are a paranoid moron. If you register your vehicle, are they coming for that too? God, your paranoia is VERY old. Seems you have issues from being in the military, and are taking out your paranoid delusions on our first African-American president. Ooh, the scary socialist Marxist Fascist Communist Whateverist dictator!

      • http://sandsregency.com ThomT’s

        Why are the democrats so hooked on blaming our alleged racism for not liking Barry. For all you know I am black. In our family we have blacks, Mexicans, Koreans, Japanese, English, German, etc. We can’t even root for John Wayne in a war movie until we find out who is in the room with us. We don’t like him because he is a liar, and you are probably going to deny that. If you do you are too simple to even have a discussion with. The dems wouldn’t come after our cars because they use them also. Why is it when a car kills somebody you blame the driver? When a hammer is used to kill somebody you blame the holder of the hammer. When a gun is used, you blame the gun. Why do you want to pass more laws when your vice president says they can’t enforce the laws already on the books? Enforce the laws that are in place now and you won’t need new laws.

      • Retrodude

        Darling, ALL politicians lie to a certain extent- no matter what party. However, to just scream “Obama lies!” is both ridiculous and quite immature. Nobody except past presidents knows how difficult it must be to be thrust into the world of being a US president. Obama has done many good things- but you nimwads thrust head int(or “Benghazi”!) over and over, and refuse to focus on the good things he’s gotten accomplished. You CANNOT give him credit for ANYTHING, and that gets real old.

        As for the tired gun argument- WE DON’T BLAME GUNS, NOR DO WE WANT ALL OF THE GUNS. When does this mass gun confiscation begin? IT was supposed to happen with Clinton, and it was supposed to happen when O took office…. and we’re still waiting for it to happen. MILLIONS of guns have been sold under Obama- yet you truly think he’s coming for them. It’s beyond stupid. If you are afraid of registering your gun, or a background check, then you do not need to own one, plain and simple. And most sane gun owners are just fine with that. I’m simple? LMAO, I’m not the simpleton screaming about big, bad, bumbling dictator Obama coming for guns and freedom. Whatever dude. WHATEVER. Done with the likes of you paranoid, delusional nutbags. I’m too busy living my LIFE, and being free as a bird. Oh and by the way, MY life has greatly improved under Obama, compared to the shitstorm left by Bush. I’ve bought a home, gotten 4 hefty raises, paid off my debt, have wonderful health insurance, and opened a business. And here’s one for you- in the market to BUY A GUN! Gasp! Yes, a pesky liberal, hell-bent on taking your freedoms away, is buying a gun! Hell must have surely frozen over!!!!! That damn Obama!

      • http://sandsregency.com ThomT’s

        Nice cover for Barry. Everybody lies to one degree or another. Barry lies about everything. Being president must be tough, agreed. He said in 2006 or 7 that he wasn’t qualified to be prersident. For once he told the truth.

        Back to name calling again. Nice. When your argument fails, call names.

        He has done a few things; not much. He knows nothing until he reads it in the newspapeer. Why? Doesn’t his cabinet and his czars ever check in with him?

        It isn’t that millions of guns have been sold UNDER Barry. It is rather in spite of him. And it isn’t that I’m afraid of registering my guns, it is rather that I will not register them. And I have never been afraid of a background check. I have concealed carry permits in 4 states and have been the subject of background checks since I was 18 for security clearances in the military.

        In that you don’t know most gun owners you are showing your stupidity in telling me what they are fine with. You just don’t know.

        I am glad that your life is better under Barry. I am sure that there are millions just like you, on welfare and drawing food stamps, paid for by people like me. Who pays for your cell phone, Barry?

        Be sure to take a gun safety course.

      • Retrodude

        The stupid BURNS. I am not on welfare, never have been. That would be my conservative family members. I do not draw food stamps, either. Your tired, welfare queen myths have also been debunked a thousand times. I pay for my own cell phone, and every president since the 30′s has done the free phone thing, dude. Same old tired talking points that hold no basis in reality whatsoever. You are obviously a paid schill for the right. Done with you. NEWSFLASH- every damn one of my Republican family members are on welfare and food stamps, and are dirt poor. I have never used government assistance, and your ignorance on the subject is not surprising. Typical Republican mentality. Don’t bother to reply- I can argue with my Republican uncle and get the same damn mentality and ridiculous replies. What a tool. OH and Repubs NEVER insult or call anyone names!

      • http://sandsregency.com ThomT’s

        I applaud you for not being on welfare or foodstamps. Neither I nor any member of my family has either. That includes both democrats and republicans.

        Have never received a dime to be, as you put it, a paid shill (without the “c”). Nobody that I know is and for the most part they are all very conservative.

        You didn’t address the question about military (or other public) service. Are you counting on somebody else to always provide your security?

        Snappy comeback on the insults by the way.

      • Retrodude

        No…. I have never served in the military- I wasn’t aware that every Tom, Dick, and Harry HAD to enlist. So every person who does not enlist is “counting on somebody else to always provide your security”? Hmm. I am very thankful for my freedom (which I still have, thanks…)- and never take it for granted.

        However, I’m not one to plaster SUPPORT OUR TROOPS stickers all over my vehicle. This isn’t 1776- we don’t all need to join the military. We have the largest in the world- I’m pretty sure we’re doing just fine there.

      • http://sandsregency.com ThomT’s

        Not everybody is required to serve in the military Retrodude. Nobody expects that. I guess my point is that if you have served you have taken an oath to protect the Constitution, and most of us take that oath seriously. There is not statute of limitations on that oath.

        A lot of people see obama trying to circumvent the Constitution. He changes laws at will. Only congress can do that. It doesn’t matter what his intentions are; the law is clear.

        When we see the Constitution, the law of the land that he is sworn to defend, being abused it does cause us concern.

        You have seen democracy attacked around the world. Do not believe for a moment that the very same thing cannot happen here if people become complacent.

        I am not asking anybody to become a conservative. God knows the conservatives in politics are just as bad as the democrats. Just be aware of what is going on in your country.

        And I do plaster SUPPORT OUR TROOPS all over the tailgate of my 1995 pickup. But not on my 2004 Corvette or on my 2009 Harley. And we are doing just fine. We have the finest military in the world and they are the best trained military in the world. But we have to stop forcing the warriors leading the military into retirement. The ones we are left with are pencil pushers who wouldn’t know how to fight a battle.

        Be well and good luck in your business.

        Conservatives on food stamps? Oxymoron…With all due respect to your family, must be because they are devout Christians. Because gays being allowed to marry would be way worse then not having food for their kids which the Reps. would love to wipe out (food stamps)

      • kimmydavid

        Bush did NOT wipe out the middle class. If you’re stupidly blaming the recession on Bush, think again! It was foolish democrat policies (you know, equal outcome INSTEAD of equal opportunity) that caused most of the sub-prime mortgage mess and democrat politicians that blatantly IGNORED the many many requests to reform and audit frannie/freddie mac. The middle class is also being wiped out by the millions of illegal immigrants driving wages into the dirt….the same huge group of lawbreakers you simple-minded fools hope to “legalize”. Seriously, have you folks really thought about what that means to the unemployed working class and poor US citizens hoping to find a job? I doubt it.

      • kimmydavid

        Please don’t bother mentioning the ridiculous BS that “they do work Americans won’t do”. Utter nonsense for the most part. They come to this country illegally, obtain stolen identities or fake social security numbers and ID and go to work at at a company that most likely formerly employed US citizens at or above minimum wage (with typical benefits). If you don’t think that’s happening, you clearly haven’t been paying attention.
        Giving them any sort of amnesty will only encourage that next huge surge of illegal immigration.

        Actually, you are the incorrect party here. The benghazi commission, led by house republicans, has already filed it’s report finding no wrong doing by the white house, the state department, or anyone else in the government for that matter. You must have missed the memo, since Faux news did not report on the story. Every other news outlet not owed by news corp did report on the commissions finding, and hundreds of articles from last week can be found with a quick Google search.

        Maybe it is the election fraud like the lady who voted for him six time in Ohio. Plus all the other election fraud. Maybe it is because he is destroying America. The Canadian might feel differently if he had to live with this for a president. Bush blundered the wars? at least Iraq wasn’t taken over by extremist murdering everyone who doesn’t agree with them, that was until the idiot obama let them know the exact day we were leaving and then left no troops there to keep things under control.

        I have found, for the most part, that Canadians I know are pretty much ambivalent about American politicians. They only that as the 500 pound gorilla, when America cuts itself shaving, Canada bleeds.

        There is no doubt in my mind that America had to overhaul its medical service. I spent 5 days in the hospital in July of this year. While there two young ladies came in: one from occupational therapy and one from physical therapy. They asked if I needed their services. I said no. They left. The cost? $461 a piece. WTF?? The solution would have been better to provide coverage for the 15 million who didn’t have insurance. Now millions of people lost their insurance in order to provide insurance to the 15 million. That doesn’t compute. We uninsured the insured to insure the uninsured.

        I don’t try to change anybodies mind Jillz. You cannot argue somebody out of what they weren’t aregued into. Canada is, for the majority, liberal. I accept that and when I am in Canada I follow the crowd. I have no hand guns in Canada and accept that most criminals there don’t have them either. When they unarm the criminals here, maybe I won’t need mine. Until then I will continue to have mine with me. Legally. I read in the local paper, in Canada, where a home invasion took place and the owner of the house said “if I only had a bigger flashlight to hit them with”. Here I could wish for a larger caliber instead of a flashlight. But I think .40 S&W is sufficient.

        I have enjoyed trading comments with you.

        “I have found, for the most part, that Canadians I know are pretty much ambivalent about American politicians. They only that as the 500 pound gorilla, when America cuts itself shaving, Canada bleeds.”

        This, I 100% agree with. MOST Canadians are ambivalent about American politicians. In cases where American politics is brought up, however, there is no hatred toward President Obama, nor have I heard anyone say they think he is weak. That’s why I posted in the first place – I’m tired of hearing the American right lie about this.

        We also say, The USA gets a cold, Canada sneezes ; )

      • http://sandsregency.com ThomT’s

        Have you complained about Harper? Trudeau? I hear a lot of Canadians complain about them but have not heard any Americans do it. Maybe the policies of the politicians have to be applied before you truly understand what they are doing.
        Obama has never shown any leadership qualities at all. He had to darn near be forced to make a decision on taking out Osama bin Laden. He is afraid that if he makes a decision it may come back to bite him. Think about his ridiculous statements regarding Syria and the Red Line that he later said he didn’t say. When something comes out, he either blames President George W. Bush or says he wasn’t aware of the problem until he read it in the paper. What ever happened to “The Buck Stops Here”?
        At any rate, I have enjoyed our exchange. I wish you well. Thm

      • TheOpinionGuy

        Obama drew the red line, then went to Congress for authorization after Republicans demand that he do so. Congress refused to authorize the bombing, and now Republicans blame Obama for not bombing! :smack head:

        Complained about Harper? Oh yeah! I’ve often wished we could exchange leaders actually, send Obama here and we’ll send you Harper! I think Harper would make a great Republican Presidential candidate b/c he understands the necessity of addressing social issues while balancing both liberal and conservative ideologies, but loves big business and has no issues with deregulating to allow them to destroy the environment. You guys think you have it bad? Harper makes deals with other countries that allow them to pretty much do what they want here without fear of being sued on environmental issues and keeps the deals secret until it’s almost too late. Please take him!!

      • JB

        Yeah that is why obama said let putin know after the election I will have more flexibility. I guess obama didn’t know putin was our enemy? Maybe he should have found out by watching the news. What countries admire us now? I don’t have to “wish” other countries saw us as weak they do. It is only the blind sheep like you who are seeing something that is not there. Mexico respects him so much we still have Marine in prison for a wrong turn. All the middle east respects him so much that it is being taken over by extremist. You are out of your mind.

      • Jillz

        Blind sheep like me are seeing something that’s not there? Do you mean things like there is a Nobel Peace Prize winning President sitting in office in the USA with a right wing Congress trying to paint him as some Marxist-Socialist-Atheist-Un American tyrant for doing things like trying to help the PEOPLE of his country instead of supporting only wars and big business? Or is it that I am not seeing this President being obstructed at every turn in everything he tries to do (for which he is then subsequently blamed for). Maybe I didn’t notice the government shutdown, at a cost of billions of taxpayer dollars thanks to the party of fiscal conservatives (which they tried to blame the President for). I’m not sure if I noticed emergency unemployment benefits being cut off right before Christmas, and I’m sure I didn’t notice Congress cutting veteran’s benefits either, all the while hypocritically screaming “Support our Troops!”

        Not to mention the frequent outrageous and slanderous attacks by right media and politicians and the daily obstruction by Congress. What is it (besides right wing conspiracies) that I’m not seeing?

        I see a lot up here, JD. Our news is news up here – not opinion disguised as news. My opinions are based on the disgust I feel at watching the Republican Party divide and hurt the USA, a country that I consider ‘family’. If you don’t see it, I suggest you look in the mirror and ask yourself who the sheep really are.

      • JB

        You are sadly thick, Nobel Peace Prize was a total joke what did he get it for he didn’t do anything. When he first came in office democrats had control of everything didn’t they so stop with the he couldn’t get things done. I also guess you forgot about reid, blocking everything and was the problem for the govt. shut down but once again a sheep like you just follow talking points. Why should the truth stop you from the talking points, like a broken record. How many times were reid and obama given to stop the shutdown but obama with his I will not budge attitude. I guess you blindly missed all that. The only one dividing the country is obama, where is his MOST Transparent administration? Oh no where, he is the most secretive administration ever. You stay in you world of denial, have fun.

      • Jillz

        1. The fact that you have no idea why your President won the Nobel Peace prize doesn’t mean that it is a joke. In fact, wouldn’t most people would consider it a national honour that their sitting President was a Nobel Peace prize winner, regardless of how they personally felt about the man himself?

        2. Reid was not responsible for the shutdown; neither was Obama. The Republican controlled Congress was fully responsible for that. I wasn’t following talking points when that was happening, I was paying attention to the dirty “agreements” Congress was forwarding – keeping up a perception for their right wing base that they were actually trying to resolve their issues productively. Obama didn’t refuse to budge – he just refused to participate in dirty negotiations and strong-arm tactics by the right. He told them he would only consider a clean resolution and they refused to submit a clean resolution. That’s Republican obstruction. By the way, in case you forgot (since he so quickly and ridiculously denied it), tea party wonder boy Ted Cruz spear-headed the “government shutdown fiasco.

        I don’t live in denial, my friend. I just don’t live behind blind hatred of a person to the point where I can’t see both sides or the greater good. Obama has been treated appallingly by the opposition since the day he took office. At this point, after all their obstruction, I don’t know how any Republican can keep a straight face while making the ludicrous claim that “Obama hasn’t done anything”.

      • Retrodude

        Moron. Actually, gun sales have skyrocketed under Obama. I can walk into any Wal-Mart and buy as many guns as I choose to.

        if he is pushing more and more laws how come more then double the americans have guns now then when he started? it was all the NRA the president only talked about registering guns and doing background checks for mental health..that sounds reasonable to me, but right after he said it NRA went to work and told everyone he was taking their guns so everyone bought more.. smart move on their part isnt it?

      • nana

        more people relying on government assistance because they wont pass a job bill to get jobs in america

      • Glenna Jones-Kachtik

        More & more gun laws? Remember, that Congress WRITES those laws, not the President. He just would like for us to return to the laws we had concerning assault rifles. & he would like to see some of the loopholes closed. We have more idiots running around with open carry to try to make us ‘more comfortable’ – haven’t seen many of them arrested – oh, a few to be sure, like the nut carrying one in Sky Harbor airport & pointing it at a mother & daughter & the equally insane nut running around in a Dallas neighborhood claiming he was a sovereign nation but there were a whole group of doofus who went out to Cliven Bundy’s ranch to “stop the law from taking his cattle” off PUBLIC LAND where he had been grazing them without paying – not one of them were arrested so WHERE THE HELL do you get the idea that he is passing more laws?????
        I know that it really pisses people off about the APCA. So far, I don’t think one soul has had to pay that tax. & as far as the doctors? That was the private insurance companies – not the APCA. 2) CONGRESS wrote this plan, not the President, so HE isn’t the one saying anything. (Did you forget your basic civics lessons? Congress writes the laws with the input of the President … all the President does is sign them into being. Then the justice system interprets them …. you know, that 3 branches thing? It didn’t suddenly change because a BLACK man got into the white house.)
        3) Those death panels? They have ALWAYS been there & it has been the insurance companies who said which medicines they would pay for – NOT this new law. As for the VA yes, it has become bogged down – too many veterans & not enough hospitals or staff to go around…but the VA has always been a single system payer. My father used the VA up until he went into a nursing home & he always received excellent care. So the INSURANCE COMPANIES are continuing to say what they will & won’t pay for. In many cases, the poor care comes from RED STATE governors who refuse to sign off on the medicare expansion leaving the plan not working as it should. The medicare expansion was supposed to cover those who made too much to qualify for medicare but too little to qualify for medicaid. In the states where the governors complied, the plan is working fine.
        4) As for government assistance? There are way more people who are homeless now than they have ever been. 1% of the people own all the wealth & there is a greater gap between rich & poor. Paul Ryan & others (not the President) keep cutting benefits & giving more & more money to the rich in the form of tax breaks. We have had this trickle down theory for a really LONG time now & nothing has trickled down. If these rich people & the companies they own would pay their fair share (& don’t give me the “highest corporate tax in the industrialized world” crap because there are many countries who pay lots of corporate taxes & they are doing quite well.
        The rest of your tirade is just as delusional as the first part…if you are a lifelong Democrat the world should fall apart….you were a dino……..

        How exactly is he making it harder to buy guns for self protection? Just bought one this week. Walked right in, filled out a 4473, handed them my money and off I walked with a gun. Got a new cleaning kit and three boxes of hollow points too. No questions asked other than those on the 4473 to find out if I’m allowed to legally own a gun. Was the exact same process as last time I purchased a gun prior to Obama’s presidency.

        2) Nothing in the PPACA forced people off of their plans. If a person lost their plan, it was directly due to actions of the insurance carrier in one way or another.

        3) The VA has had issues like this for almost as long as it has existed. The VA that is the nearest to me had its ability to perform anything but emergency procedures taken away in 07 or 08 due to similar problems as in Arizona.

        4) Your point does nothing as far as a government takeover of health care is concerned.

        5) See point 4. You act like nothing similar happened under prior administrations, but it clearly has.

        6) Advocating gay marriage does not meet any of the criteria that you give for a Muslim to lie.

        7) Republicans have been talking impeachment since Issa mentioned it in 2010.

        Your points prove one thing – you’re an idiot.

        You cry like a baby, that Obama said you could keep your health insurance you all ready have, that you don’t have to change it, and it didn’t happen, and many millions of people got cancellations or weren’t able to access the AHA. Well first off, Obama didn’t cancel the policies! Also it was the Republican run States that refused to sign on the expanded Medicaid and made it difficult if not impossible for the people of their State to sign up for AHA. It was the insurance companies that cancelled their current policies to change to a plan that was more comprehensive and had updated regs to fit with the new law. They could have still kept their doctors on a plan that fit their criteria, they didn’t have to go without insurance. It was the ‘private’ insurance companies that decided to cancel and offer updated versions, not the President! It was actually part of the law that they could keep their presence insurance policies. The insurance companies should have done it different and just ‘added’ an amendment to the insurance policies that were all ready in place if they didn’t meet the qualifications, but they knew they had to come up with something to make the President look bad, or make the AHA look like it wasn’t going to work, so they came up with a plan to make people think he was lying to you! It’s sad that he even had to apologize for what the insurance companies did, and probably at the coaxing and training of the Conservatives and the Koch Brothers, since the insurance companies are probably in their pockets or vice versa.
        As far as you saying the President is making it harder to obtain guns…. he isn’t ‘taking guns away’ from you! There has been no laws passed that take them all away period! And there are no laws intended to take them all away. Yes some weapons that are meant for only military combat might be considered too dangerous for the public, since they aren’t used for hunting or anything other than to kill as many people as possible in a matter of seconds. I’m sure people that like to target practice don’t need too much skill to shoot one, except to make sure it goes in the right direction and doesn’t have so much kickback that it shoots or kills an instructor, or innocent person. So what’s the good reason people should have them? The original intent to be able to ‘bear arms’ isn’t so it can support anarchy, it’s to be able to form a regulated army, at a time when we didn’t have them, or to hunt for food or protection from all the marauding savages(sarcasm, but not so much) ‘Native People’, it wasn’t so every Tom, Dick, and Harry could carry them around in the streets and threaten people with their presence. The U.S. has managed since the Fifties to get away from the paranoia of living in a police state and having law enforcement on every corner, armed and ready for battle, We’ve tried to strive for peace, and carrying around guns and looking like the bad guys doesn’t help the cause for gun rights in our country. Besides, how are people to know who the good guys or the bad guys are. It’s not like people go around with a stamp on their forehead saying “I’m a good guy”. So your saying the President is a lying cheat, or whatever name is on your roster for the day, and you supposedly are a lifelong Democrat, maybe you should start to act like one. Democrats don’t just like the President because he happens to be black, liberal, or have the exact same talking points and they don’t just follow everything he says like he’s a god. It’s the Republicans that gave him that title and power, because that’s what they are looking for. They want another Reagan they can call King, but the problem with that, is Reagan has been shown to be even worse than George W. in how he handled not only his Presidency, but his time as Governor of California. So if you are truly a Democrat, from what I read here, would never come out of a Democrat’s mouth. Sorry, you can fool some people all the time, or all people some of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time, I don’t care what your registration on your ballot says. :/

      • doughnuts64

        Everything you just said is wrong.
        He hasn’t been pushing gun laws. He has no say over what laws states pass. Ever heard of states rights?
        VA = Government healthcare? Duh. It always has been. Still no death panels at the VA. The closest thing to a death panel is when combat wounded come in and the get triaged.
        The economy is improving, and people are coming off assistance. And it was the states that expanded Medicare. Again: ever heard of states’ rights?
        All your terrified whinging about how unsafe we are doesn’t mean we are any less safe. It just means you are more afraid.
        Also, nice bit of Islamophobia.
        GOPers started bleating about impeachment, their pet pundits took up the cry, and then the left started mocking them about it so they shut up. It’s still funny.
        It’s also funny that you are repeating whatever drivel comes out of a half-dozen right-wing mouthpieces almost verbatim, and you talk about hoe the Left are a bunch of sheep.
        It’s funny watching you do whatever the Border Collies tell you.
        Baaaaaaaa!

      • breezy

        insurance companies have death panels and alwasy have, they can refuse to pay for treatments and before Obamacare could kick you off your plan or refuse to gve you insurance due to preexisiting conditions. We still have no stronger gun laws which we desperately need. Do you really need an assault rifle for self protection? The VA is not adequately funded due to tax breaks for corporations that is why it has a problem. Millions more now have insurance who didn’t before because of Obamacare. you apparently don’t like the facts and i don’t belive you are a Democrat.

      • Dylan Payne

        So far you’ve managed to argue that the president is responsible for a state law in CT, the creation of the VA, the murder of a border patrol officer by an armed gang, and that he is furthering his secret Muslim agenda by fooling everyone into thinking he isn’t a Muslim by advocating for anti-muslim positions. You did all of this without providing a shred of evidence or even a coherent argument. Best case scenario you’re a paranoid republican troll and worse case scenario you’re delusional. Either way I think we can safely toss your opinion to the curb like so much garbage.

      • Jason Peak

        I hate to break this to you JB, but the VA existed long before Obama was president. And if you believe that non-doctors choosing which medical procedures will be paid for and which won’t, you must think of private insurance companies as having always been death panels. And finally, as for you being a “lifelong Democrat”, you’ve never been a Democrat. Every point you made screams Fox News. If you can’t at least be honest about who you are, I can’t believe a single other word you have to say.

      • Rae Downing

        If I were an advocate of gun ownership I would heavily lobby toward making private ownership more difficult to keep them out of the hands of criminals and 16 year old who shoot up their schools. In doing so I am protecting my right to fire arm ownership.

  • Meghan Digby

    Alright Fine. I’ll take a cracking at this. First I will point out that I haven’t heard a peep about Obama supposedly not being born in U.S. since he first ran for candidacy. And it’s typical stupid slander just like claiming the Republican party choice hadn’t paid taxes in years. Both sides are guilty of stupidity with slander. Let it go. Second I was relieved to discover Obama supported Gay marriage. It’s a phenomenal stance to take as a leader. Next, Republicans are concerned he may step on our right to conceal carry and own a gun. But we are not the party saying he is going to come around with a large sack asking for us to turn all our guns over to him. That would be a tea party fear. How about you turn your passive aggressive question towards the correct people. Let’s try that on. Finally. Government in forced health care is socialist. Not only is it socialist but the other countries who have it are wondering why we would decide to give it a go when it’s failed everywhere else. We aren’t that special. If it fails in Canada…guess what? It’s going to fail here. So what we have here is a bunch of misguided questions twisting republican viewpoints. Wonderful article. Get your facts straight on which party is fearful of what and let go of the slander from 6 years ago…we have.

        I don’t give a rats ass if you believe I’m a democrat or not I have a voter card that shows I am. What else did she mean? He considers Kenya his home but he wants to be US president? How about run for office over in his home country.

      • Andy Kinnard

        I didn’t contend that your lying about your registration was the only option. There is still the option that you registered as Dem in order to vote in Dem primaries. Given your posting of right wing talking points, you clearly don’t have a liberal or progressive point of view or sympathies; so, I feel justified in my assessment. Cope rather than cuss.

        It means he spent a great deal of time there and feels like home; what’s so terrible about that?

    • cattnipp

      the GOP has been singing the “he’s gonna take away your guns” song since at least 1960….. that was one of the big fear issues about JFK….. the GOP made 2 promises over the election of JFK…. 1) that he would take away everyone’s gun…. and 2) that if JFK was elected it would cause nuclear war —– and entire generation was traumatized by weekly nuclear bomb drills in our public schools…. we were forced to hide beneath our school desks to protect us from the nuclear war the Democrats caused by getting JFK elected.

    • cattnipp

      where has it failed?????? countries with universal medicine have a higher 5 year survival rate on breast cancer than we do…… how does a better result make their health care less????

      • JB

        I guess that is why people from Canada and other places come here to get medical treatment because of long wait times. I don’t know what your talking about.

      • boosb

        Canada’s “healthcare tourism” rate is roughly 1 out of every 850 canadians. To contrast, the US has a rate of roughly 1 out of 350 Americans. A smaller percentage of Canadian’s go abroad for healthcare than Americans. Also, 40,000 Americans died each year because they don’t have healthcare, not so in Canada.

      • cattnipp

        that is so darn funny………. Sarah Palin admits that she and her family used to sneak into Canada for healthcare, even while she was Governor of Alaska, simply because it was cheaper …….. and you claim that she understood that Canada had poor healthcare and doing so would place her family at risk …. are you admitting that the GOP does not care who dies….. just so it is cheap ……………………………. lmbo

      • Jillz

        The United States has some of the best healthcare options in the world. The problem is that until the ACA many people couldn’t afford to use it. The Canadian system doesn’t cover everything (though it covers all basic, emergency and most preventive care) so rich Canadians can afford to go the USA and pay for additional treatment (though they still have the same basic healthcare as every other Canadian).

        I’ve commented on waiting times before. I have a GP and two specialists. I get same or next day appointments with my GP and aside from my initial appointments with the specialists (for which I waited 2 or so weeks each) I get appointments the same week if I need them.

        There are wait times for special services (MRI’s for instance) but not if it’s a life threatening condition.

    • Lori Nicocia

      When I see a ballot that says “Tea Party” AND “Republican” on it, I’ll stop lumping them together. Until then, sorry; the GOP created them, the GOP owns them.

      I have several friends and famy in Canada and they are happy with the healthcare offered. The bogus stories the Right uses to claim Canadian or European healthcare is failing is PURE BULLSHIT. I know this from personal experience while living there.

      • Jillz

        It’s actually irritating hearing the American right lie about our healthcare and how we feel about it. We don’t actually even THINK about our healthcare often because we take it for granted. We’ve never had to worry about healthcare.

    • Jillz

      Health care has failed in Canada? LMAO Well now I’m a little upset – I just had to renew my Health Card last week and no one told me it wouldn’t work anymore!

      Meghan, the Canadian system isn’t perfect, might even need repairs in a few places, but it works and I doubt you would find any Canadians who aren’t glad for our health coverage here. I’ve never been financially worried about getting sick or seeing a doctor. Not once in my life.

  • sportsproducer

    1) The president has on multiple occasions either sided with or signed laws that GO AGAINST gun control. In 2009 President Obama was asked by then Mexican President Felipe Calderon to call for the re-authorization of the Assault Weapons ban. Obama politely refused.. Which by the way caused some strife between the 2 countries. In 2010 he signed laws allowing people to carry guns on Federal park lands ( As long as it was inside the states gun laws) and later allowing passengers to carry guns in checked baggage onto Amtrack trains. -A Ban that was put in to place after 9/11 – AS a matter of fact this president has signed and puched for less gun control measures than the last 3 Republican Presidents.
    2) None!
    3) The ACA is actually boom for the private insurance industry. Once several democrats decided they would never let a “Public Option” – A government backed health care plan which would be available to only those who were considered lo income or unable to afford the private plans – this became a law which has created jobs in both the private health care and insurance industry. Now this is where one of the ole “We lost our Freedom” has come about. What is interesting is that the government has on many occasions mandated purchases by the public. One if which is Auto and Mortgage insurance. This is simply a big CYA for the banks. Now you will hear them say.. “Well you don’t have to own a car”.. Which is one of the most ignorant statements and American can make. In the later half of the 19th Century and the first half of the 20th Century Industrial and Manufacturing plants were built and neighborhoods sprouted up in that area during it’s construction. Since 1960 most industrial and manufacturing plants were constructed outside of an already budging landscape which strapped the limits of public transportation and placed an emphasis on more private car ownership. As the price of cars increased the option of cash based auto purchases decreased and insurance was needed for financing. So in effect how society and industry has changed has destroyed the notion that an automobile is “Optional”.
    4) There are no “Death Panels”! The phrase was created by a person who has the brains of 10th grader that was unfortunately thrust not only in to the Republican party but the American body politic altogether. It should never be mentioned again by people who have graduated High School. Now the ACA does give patience more ability to have conversations with their health care providers to make decisions when on many occasions doctors have continued treatment for terminal ailments that were already doomed before they begin. This law exemplifies the right of people to die without prolonged medication.
    5) Most of the people who shout this out actually have no idea what the term “socialism”, “Marxism”, or “communism” even means. Since the recession ended private investment has skyrocketed, the number of millionaires has more than doubled and private job creation has increased exponentially as opposed to public job growth which boomed from 2001 – 2007. That is anything but “Socialism”.

    I hope this helps.

        Yeah not so much unless you have a car. I see people running people over or wrecking into them with their bodies everyday.

      Look no farther than the VA for death panels. Only people with a 10th grader brain would think other wise. A panel of non doctors aging what treatments you can and can’t get depending on your age is called what? Yeah obamacare, we will tell you whether you can live or not.

        Only a person who is in the 10th grade would believe that this just started with the VA. The VA hospital program has been plaques with these issues for decades, mainly because it has been a bad business model from it’s inception which was prior to the the current president birth.

    Rightwingers are never going to answer these questions. They just make these baseless insinuations but cannot logically defend them, or answer the simple question, “Well? Why haven’t we seen any of the things that your lunatic mouthpieces claimed would happen?” LOL

  • JB

    I’m a life long registered democrat but I can answer these questions with how I feel. 1: He’s doing it by pushing more and more gun laws. Making it harder to own a gun for self protection. Trying to get to the point where if they want to take your guns, they will. Look to CT. 2: The freedom from not being forced to pay a tax if you don’t want his stupid insurance plans especially when people were told they could keep their plans and doctors if you like them. period. Then it changed because “he” was the one to say whether your plan you like and could afford was good enough in his eyes. 3: The VA is pretty much the beginning of death panels, VA=government healthcare. I find it hard to believe you wouldn’t understand having a panel of non doctors saying which treatments you will or will not be allowed to have especially depending on your age doesn’t SCREAM death panels. 4: There’s way more people relying on government assistance now than there ever was, including medical assistance because of obamacare. Since people that were paying for their own insurance now can be on medical assistance putting more of a burden on states. Yet there are like 30 million people still uninsured but obamacare was supposed to make it so almost no one would be without insurance. Joke. 5: You really don’t see how we are less safe?, then you are completely blind!! Ask the family of the border patrolman’s family who witnessed him being murdered in front of them by illegals who were complete criminals and were arrested numerous times, deported and kept coming back to the US. Ask his children how nice it was to see their father shot to death in front of them!! Russia laughs at obama, did you see the laser pic on the wall of him eating a banana? No country cares about obama he has made America a laughing stock of whimpyness. 6: Muslims say it is ok to lie if it farthers their agenda. Qur’an 16:106 establishes that there are circumstances that can “compel” a Muslim to tell a lie. Secondly in Qur’an 3:28 this verse tells Muslims not to take those outside the faith as friends, unless it is to “guard themselves.” Muslims are permitted to lie: (1) to save their lives, (2) to reconcile a husband and wife, (3) to persuade a woman into a bedroom and (4) to facilitate one on his journey. Muslims are even permitted to disavow Islam and Mohammed if it is not a genuine heart-felt rejection. Muslims will tell you that concealment of a truth is not an abandonment of that truth if it benefits Islam. In some branches of Islam, taqiyya تقية (alternative spellings taqiyeh, taqiya, taqiyah, tuqyah) is a form of religious dissimulation,[1] or a legal dispensation whereby a believing individual can deny his faith or commit otherwise illegal or blasphemous acts while they are at risk of significant persecution. 7: Maybe do the research because it is the democrats that have mentioned “impeachment” much much more than republicans, they are using it as a way to raise campaign funds and bait there base. The same base as you, not the democrats who refuse to tow the party line like sheep led to slaughter. You do know there are many democrats that didn’t vote for obama, because of his policies and lack of experience in doing anything but activism. What I find sad is instead of democrats using their brains they just do whatever they are told to do and say by the party. I’m sure all the obama sheep will come out and make excuses for everything I said, because using independent thought is out of the question! Seeing and admitting the truth, is to hard so you deny.

    “Death Panels” were a real thing, just not anywhere as insidious as the GOP made them out to be and have almost nothing to do with death. They were a cost saving measure but were ultimately removed from the bill because of the bad press. Funny thing is that Hospitals are required to make cost saving changes so many of them have elected to form “death panels” on their own.

    • aspromised

      Oh wow. Just wow.

    • Andy Kinnard

      That was NEVER true, and you have no evidence to support it.

      • Joseph Tiberius Orabona

        Death panels were made out to be nameless doctors sitting in a room deciding who lives and who dies. In reality they are the doctor ( or someone designated by the hospital) having a discussion with the patient about what they want to have happen if/when their condition deteriorates. It saves them and their family from having to make hard decisions during already difficult times.

        It was originally part of the ACA but was taken out. Today many hospitals are electing to do it on their own.

      • TheOpinionGuy

        Death panels were never part of the original bill….

  • Jim Bean

    Guns: he’s not going to confiscate them – not because he wouldn’t if he could – but because we won’t allow it.

        The function of it is to control costs by limiting payments to physicians, etc. The idea that providers will continue to provide the same level of service for diminishing rewards is as illogical as Reno’s assumption the bankers would have no recourse other than to eat the losses from the subprime mortgages she was forcing them to make.

    I have a question for you! Who took the money out of the social security super secret tripple locked box and dumpdit into the genreal fund and allowing congress to spend it on all sorts of give away programs? Who ? One more what if that democrat presdient hadn’t done that and the social security money was left in the social security tripled locked lock box how much money would be there today!

        Moreover, all that borrowing is in the form of government backed bonds, still the safest investment in the world. It would literally take a full-on government bankruptcy where all creditors were disavowed for that debt to be defaulted. Not only that, but borrowing from ourselves prevents our having to getthe money from China or other foreign countries. People who are outraged by this simply don’t understand the dynamics of government finance.

    • TheOpinionGuy

      By law, Social Security taxes are automatically converted into special Treasury Bills, which bear interest. There has never been a “lock box,” or all of the monies collected would simply melt away due to inflation.

      To combat inflation, there are only four choices: (1) invest in U.S. T-bills, (2) invest in foreign bonds, (3) invest in corporate bonds, (4) invest in corporate equity (or equivalent). Holding cash in a lock box would be stupid.

    Barry would, if it didn’t fly in the face of the Constitution take all guns, like Chicago. Okay, not all guns. Just the good guys would give up their’s while the criminals would not. Obama wanted to sign the UN Treaty which would have allowed the UN to take our guns.
    Obama was against the Army in Nicarauga removing the ex-president from office when he refused to leave after his Constitutional approved two terms. Why would Barry back the guy when his own Constitution forbid what he was doing?
    His term isn’t over. I believe that at some point he’ll declare martial law so that he can continue in office. He’ll suspend elections. They’ll want our guns before that. I, like millions of other, will then have undocumented weapons. Barry’ll like that term and concede. As long as they are undocumented and not illegal, he’s happy.
    He is inviting thousands of illegal immigrants to cross our border and he’s shipping them throughout the country instead of back across the border. Our schools aren’t ready for these disease ridden criminal invaders to infect our children. And the schools will have to spend so much time and money on them that our own children will suffer.
    Now, answer the questions that i’ve posed here.

    • Marilyn Olsen Scheffler

      And because you “believe it” it will come true? Ok then! He had INVITED these immigrants to come over here? Those “disease ridden criminal invaders ” are mostly desperate mothers and children who are terrified they will lose their lives in their own countries. I don’t have the answers to how we should handle all of that (but I’m sure YOU do) but I don’t don’t think I would be calling them all criminals. I don’t know where you live, but if you’ve ever been to south Texas and the RG Valley you would see the kindest caring individuals who have tried to help some of these people on their own. And a lot of them don’t have the wherewithal to do that but do it out of the goodness of their hearts. You know—hearts? Where you are supposed to love your fellow man?

      • http://sandsregency.com ThomT’s

        They are criminals Marilyn. They are here illegally. The solution for any difficulties in Central America is certainly not for the American taxpayer to support them. Before we can do anything meaningful we have to deport all illegals and secure our border. Right now the gates should be closed. If they can’t sit foot in our country then they are Mexico’s problem. I am an immigrant. I moved here, LEGALLY, in 1956. We waited until it was our turn and we came in an orderly fashion. We had a sponsor who had committed to support us should we find ourselves unable to support ourselves. We learned the language and my father got a job immedialy, and he stayed with the company until retirement. My brothers and I have done the same. Why can’t these criminal invaders get in line and come here legally. They are causing those hopeful immigrants who are waiting patiently for their turn to wait even longer.

      • Jillz

        Is there a difference between an “illegal” and a “refugee”?

      • http://sandsregency.com ThomT’s

        Anybody can claim to be a refugee. And a lot of the illegals have been told to claim refugee status as this will allow them to stay in the country longer and they can them claim that we are tearing their family apart. That is impossible to do as they have already accomplished that. Then, because they have no legitmate claim to refugee status, they don’t show up for their hearing and stay illegally in the country, draining our resources.

      • Jillz

        So these human beings on your southern border right now – are they “illegals” or “refugees”?

        Many of them are children – it’s hard to believe that they would leave their families, possibly never to see them again, just to try to stick it to the USA unless they had a pretty good reason.

      • http://sandsregency.com ThomT’s

        They are illegals. And their families in Central America know that if they can get their foot in the door through their children that they’ll be allowed to move here also. Don’t be so thick headed.
        Are you aware that the U.S. pays Mexico $500,000,000 (that 1/2 billion) each year to secure their southern border so that those in Central America won’t sneak into Mexico then work their way north?
        Have you wondered how children can make this trek alone and survive or how their parents can pay $8.000 to a coyote to get their kids here?

      • Jillz

        Thick headed? Excuse me? I’m thick headed because YOU have judged that these children are here for reasons other than fear for their lives even though there isn’t enough information to know for sure either way?? There seems to be no room in your head to understand that they just MIGHT be telling the truth. I’m not saying they are btw, you may very well be absolutely right in your judgement, but there is also the chance that you’re not [right].

        Oh yeah that’s right! A Republican delegation was sent down to one of the countries of the refugees to check it out and reported that it was too dangerous to leave the hotel.

        But why don’t you just shoot these frightened children on the border (like the militant groups patrolling with guns against the wishes of the border patrol) or send them back to the conditions they are running from without even making an attempt to verify or discredit their stories. As long as you don’t know the truth either way, your conscience should be clear.

      • http://sandsregency.com ThomT’s

        The U.S. pays Mexico $500,000,000 US dollars per year to secure THEIR southern border against illegal immigration from central america. How are these children getting through and then traveling the length of Mexico to invade the U.S.? And they aren’t just children. There are confessed gang members who are murders and there are drug cartel members amongst them.

        How many of these “refugees” has Canada offered to take in? How many would you house, feed and provide medical care for, if you couldn’t afford to do the same for your own family?

        The “refugees” come here with communicable diseases that we in America have all but eradicated in the U.S. They have been found with tuberculosis. And they are going to put them in school with our children where we’ll be forced to spend tax dollars on them to provide an education in their language. We have already increased the class size in most jurisdictions because we can’t afford the teachers to educate our own children. And we are forced to pay higher insurance premiums to cover the cost of medical care for these thousands of invaders.

        When you are willing to take 25%, or more, of these “refugees” into Canada, with a significant percentage of them into the schools closest to you, then and only then will I think about changing my mind about them.

      • Jillz

        Canada is not unknown for its hospitality. If this situation was being dealt with properly, perhaps by now a solution like that you stated would have been proposed (and maybe accepted). I am not an elected official in a position to make such a decision, however, I’m pretty confident that if this were happening on a Canadian border, those children would have been safe by now.

        Instead, right wing obstruction has turned the situation into a political talking point and proper process is not happening for the CHILDREN in that group, who are guaranteed by law (thank you GWB) immigration hearings to determine their status since they are CHILDREN from non-contingent countries.

        How are they going to get to Canada when they can’t even get across the American border?

      • http://sandsregency.com ThomT’s

        They are not being stopped at the border. They are all over the country now. And the reason they sent the children is so that they’ll be allowed to join them later.
        Nor am I an elected official. I reserve the right to complain about them but I wouldn’t want to be one of them.
        But if you think Canada will take them I’ll contact my Senators and suggest it. (That’s a joke Jillz).

      • Jillz

        “The U.S. pays Mexico $500,000,000 US dollars per year to secure THEIR southern border against illegal immigration from central america.”

        Then the problem is Mexico – why are children being used as pawns to make the point?

      • http://sandsregency.com ThomT’s

        I believe that Obama has secretly invited these kids here. But yes, the problem for us is Mexico.
        Governor Perry has called out the National Guard to protect his border with Mexico and now Mexico is complaining and asking why we aren’t being good neighbors. WTF? I believe and I have read that Mexico actually counts on the American dollars being sent back to Mexico by our illegals, to support their country. Wouldn’t surprise me at all. They have more criminals per acre than any place I’ve ever heard of. And they want to bring their criminal activity to America.

And they will be bringing them into our schools. This has nothing to do with racism Retrodude. I didn’t call them wet-backs, I called them criminals.

    1. Answer: What part of “Shall not be infringed” isn’t getting through? That means “you cannot even touch it! Not even a tiny bit! not even on the fringes!” ANY “law” (I use that word laughably since his highness seems to think he can decide which laws to enforce and which to ignore while the rest of us are held at gunpoint to follow them to the letter) that touches guns is UNCONSTITUTIONAL and thus illegal. Limiting magazine capacity (it’s NOT called a “clip” you morons),laws against it because of the “scary” black handle it has, UNCONSTITUTIONAL, ANY law that says privately owned weapons MUST be registered (only one reason for a registry, to know where they are when it comes time to take them) UNCONSTITUTIONAL …. and the list goes on. This means ANYBODY who proposed these laws is a traitor to the United States and it’s constitution. To use a word his highness seems to love to wield but only as glamour ….PERIOD! 2. Answer: Tolerance is a word the moronic left LOVES to throw around without having to follow the definition of the word them selves. (THAT…. is an action defined by the true descriptive …ARROGANCE) you libs seem to think that just because you believe something that it MUST be law. The most important freedom that has been taken by law is the right to decide for ourselves and to hold that decision sacred. Marriage defined as between a man and a woman, Homosexuality is NOTHING more then a sexual perversion and should be treated as such and kept behind closed doors where it belongs. The right to NOT be ruled by hypocrisy. Example. The libs cry out about how we should not hold an entire group of people accountable for the actions of a few when it comes to terrorists, but refuse to hold the same thing true when it comes to gun owners in the US. You dont wail at the wall to remove every terrorist from the face of the planet, so why do you do it about law constitutionally guaranteed right to gun ownership? #3 Answer. Let’s start with this. “If you like your doctor or healthcare plan, you can KEEP your doctor or healthcare plan. NO ONE can take that from you…..PERIOD!”…A bold faced LIE proven by the 6 million (plus) policies that were FORCED to be dropped the second the ACA law (there is the key word) was implemented. But… to make it enforceable it was hidden behind the disguise of the word “TAX”, since to make Americans purchase something against their will is unconstitutional. Even if you refuse to sign up … you are forced to pay in the form of the “shared responsibility tax” where they confiscate your tax return to fund this debacle while you STILL have not purchased it!!!! Highway robbery. I would continue but, unlike the usless, jobless, hopeless, wastes of humanity that you libs throw yourself on the puddle for, I have a job I need to go to or I would continue to destroy your BS attempt to make his highness faultless in his own administration. We the people refuse to be burdened the weight of a fool.

    • Andy Kinnard

      There are so many points to answer here but let’s start with the first: Not even the most ideologically extreme right winger on the SCOTUS agrees with your interpretation of the 2nd amendment. Please read Scalia’s decision in Heller.

      Oh, and registries are invaluable for law enforcement when they try to track ownership and history of a gun used in a crime. Your conspiratorial thought patterns reveal your right wing extremism.

      Gay rights: Your entire argument is based on historical momentum (and isn’t true anyway) and religiously predicated judgment of the innate sexual orientation of other American citizens. That makes everything you posted about this issue completely null within a debate about secular law.

        Federal law under FOPA makes regisration of fire arms Illegal. this is why the CDC report ordered by Obama said UBC’s will not work
        “No such rule or regulation prescribed [by the Attorney General] after
        the date of the enactment of the Firearms Owners Protection Act may
        require that records required to be maintained under this chapter or any
        portion of the contents of such records, be recorded at or transferred
        to a facility owned, managed, or controlled by the United States or any
        State or any political subdivision thereof, nor that any system of
        registration of firearms, firearms owners, or firearms transactions or
        disposition be established. Nothing in this section expands or restricts
        the Secretary’s authority to inquire into the disposition of any
        firearm in the course of a criminal investigation.”

      So let me see, you’ve expressed your OPINION that homosexuality is a perversion, and because you THINK that, there should be a law to back it up and homosexuals should be denied the freedom to decide for themselves. Is that what you’re saying?

      • Vince Edmonds

        Americans are NOT “more and more accepting of gays”. We are being forced at gunpoint to accept “your viewpoint” without regard to our own. Why is it my concern you ask you dirty cocksucker? Because of slime like YOU, who think two guys sucking face in public should be forced upon us as acceptable, but a child who wants to quietly read his or her bible in quiet reading time in school is deplorable and should be suspended for it. Who the fuck am I to decided that you ask, fucker? I DECIDE WHAT I THINK IS RIGHT…NOT THE LIKES OF YOU!

      • Retrodude

        Actually, they are. Over 70% of Americans polled see no harm in gay marriage, and could care less. And more and more states are allowing gay marriage. So homosexuals should be forced at gunpoint to stay in the closet, never love, never speak about love or sex, all because of your fragile male heterosexuality? Seems legit. And totally fair. How DARE gay people have feelings and all those other pesky, human emotions! Durrrrrr!

        WHEN IN THE HELL did you choose to become heterosexual, you moron? Reading bibles are for CHURCH- you know, that place where YOU go Sunday morning to practice YOUR beliefs. SCHOOL is for learning, idiot. YOU don’t decide who loves whom or who gets to marry whom- it’s not YOUR decision. As Americans- we are all free to love the people of our choice, and practice our beliefs. Not just white, heterosexual, Christian Americans. Nobody is forcing you to accept anything, dipshit. You can hate gays or blacks or Muslims all you want- you just cannot enact laws about hating those people. Poor white man- you can’t hate people anymore! BOO HOO. When did you choose to become heterosexual again?

      • Vince Edmonds

        actually…there isn’t! “Over 70% of Americans polled …. blah blah barph …” You idiot child extremist… always trying to use “polls” as evidence in an argument …. BAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Just because you walked into a meeting of the “he woman Man haters club” and asked the 10 of them who all is fine with homo’s and got an answer of 70% …. does not make it a viable statistic. More and more states are NOT “allowing” gay marriage. They are being FORCED to allow it by the federal government. Gigantic difference. Who the hell died and made YOU the bible police, dipshit? “reading bibles is for church” Listen to your (completely expected since it is so very libtarded) hypocrisy. Faggotry is nothing more then another in a long list of sexual perversions exactly like necrophilia, beatiality etc. and should be kept in the closet just like all the rest. The choice of MY sexuality was made at conception when I was born male. MY (and everybody elses) sexuality was decided for me by nature. to make a choice against it is to pervert the act itself…. thus making it BY DEFINITION a perversion. Now…. obviously, you’re a flaming homo and thats ok because otherwise the topic of being a homo wouldnt be your ONLY problem with the statements I made destroying this Fine example of libtarded stupidity. You wanna be a walking perversion of who you are, then have at it. But DO NOT EXPECT everyone around you to just accept you for the homo you are. And don’t get indignant when those who do not accept you say so. You have the right to be a flamin pole smoker ….. we have the right to reject you for it. From this point forward you will receive zero further responses from me on your rant to defend being a dirty cocksucker. Just go ahead and run along with your leftwing extremism and join your pals ………

      • Retrodude

        Everything you just said to me I could turn back against you. MY sexuality was also determined at conception- NOBODY chooses to be gay, you fucking moron. I have simply never been attracted to females- if it’s a choice, then YOU could decide to be gay as well. Try that for a week and get back to us.

        See, this crazy country called AMERICA said that all men are created equal- NOT JUST WHITE, HETEROSEXUAL, CHRISTIAN MEN. It’s simply NOT American to tell an entire population of people that sorry- you cannot marry your loved one, nor can you publicly display your sexuality. Who the FUCK are you to decide that? You can fucking reject me all you want- but gay people are born every fucking day and there’s not a goddamn thing you or any other goat-fucking hillbilly can do about it. Talk about stupidity. Now I’ll ask you this ONE MORE TIME- when did you choose heterosexuality? If it’s a choice, then YOU must have chosen at some point. Homosexuality exists in over 1,400 species on Earth- homophobia exists in ONE. Now tell me- which is unnatural again? I was born male too- guess what? We are all born with both male and female DNA, Einstein. Some of us get more female hormones than others. Human sexuality is NOT just black and white- there are a million shades of gray in there, but you’re too busy fucking your sister to understand that, obviously. I’ll shout my gayness from the rooftops if I choose, and obviously your male ego is too fragile to handle other men being gay. You DO realize that not all gay men are flaming- there are gay construction workers, football players, cops, wrestlers, etc. Now get the fuck out of here and try learning something for once, you stupid oaf.

  • Retrodude

    President Obama’s Socialist-Marxist-Nazi-Communist master plan to destroy the US Economy reached another milestone in April. The U.S. Treasury Department put a $114,000,000,000 dollar surplus on the books.

    According to CNN:

    Federal coffers saw a 7% increase in individual income taxes and payroll taxes, a 15% increase in corporate income taxes, and a 37% increase in money paid to Treasury by the Federal Reserve.

    Last month, the CBO projected that the 2014 shortfall would decline to 2.8% of gross domestic product — or $492 billion. That is well below the 4.1% — or $680 billion — recorded for fiscal year 2013.

    This devastating economic news (for Republicans) is just one of many recent disasters resulting from President Obama’s un-American fiscal policies. April also saw unemploymentplummet to 6.3 percent the stock market hit a record high, consumer spending skyrocketed, the US Uninsured rate imploded, and finally insurers confirmed Americans are paying their Obamacare premiums.

    The GOP has already attempted to prevent future surpluses by blasting through crushing $310 billion tax cuts to big business and adding that directly to the deficit. But not to worry, they did simultaneously vote down $12 million for disadvantaged children! ‘Murika!

    The GOP/Tea Party united prepared a statement to counter all this devastating economic news: “Benghazi.”

    I’d love to try to respond to as many points raised here and I hope those that have brought up those points read this as I DO love intelligent correspondence. 1. There have been no laws to date enacted by the administration that have made guns harder to purchase. A thorough background check and criminal background check seems only logical to me but that’s another matter. Connecticut acted without the force of the administration so that can’t be blamed on the President. 2. Death panels was a fancy, yet ominous term made by the republican party. It’s unfortunate because it seems they don’t have their facts straight. As one who’s served on these panels (the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force), it is our job (and I’m going to drastically reduce this description) to ask pertinent questions as to how a patient wishes to be treated (which medications they approve and are opposed to because of potential side effects), talking to women about breast exams and how often is realistic to get them because of false positives in our current testing methods) and a host of other questions as to determine the efficacy of those treatments. The truth is that for decades our hospitals have given unnecessary medications and operations that have driven up those hospitals’ revenues but not saved patients. It doesn’t make sense to treat someone with terminal cancer with cholesterol medication and other things if he’s going to die soon. By doing this, a more sensible approach has been implemented and more reasonable care is being provided and saving billions per month. Please realize that most of our nation’s debt is to it’s citizens, not international debt, and the lion’s share of it is medical costs. You’ve heard of the government paying $125 for a hammer, right? The medical industry was no different but now it’s changing. Using the term “death panels” is irresponsible at least and downright stupid at a more realistic term. There are definitely more people on government assistance and part of that is the current administration’s fault and just as much is the previous administration’s fault. The Obama administration has allowed more people to sign up for government assistance and I believe it’d be fair to say that it’s because the Bush administration allowed the deregulation of the stock market and the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement and Modernization Act. It is STILL in place and has cost Americans more than both the Iraq and Afghanistan invasions combined. America lost more jobs in three months than in recorded history before him. More people have needed assistance and that’s a shame. The Obama administration, in all it’s faults, have created more net jobs in five years than Bush did in eight. Obama’s administration re-regulated the stock market and it’s now running at all time highs. I hope this answers a lot of concerns. Thanks for reading this.

    Here is my response and you will find some answers mainly in the form of logic, so it may escape a few on this story feed. For those loyal to the country, not the man!

    Systems of corruption and loopholes are endless, MANY of these systems and holes, are benefitting the latinos in every part of society today. Latinos that are speaking up are either profiteering from or, are failing themselves by following along with the movement, and they generally know it. Those elitist latinos that receive grants from government and special interest donors are failing their people, all current and future generations will pay for our collective lack of testicular fortitude in the matter. What will drive this push backward, is a lesson in accountability and integrity. Both are currently missing in humanity. Until we shame the political folks back to reality, we will not compete with race baiting, religious (aka government) “leaders”, that are nothing more than faux people, faux causes, faux issues. Real immigrants and hard working Latino people are NOT looking for handouts. Nor, does their independent pride or, survivor soul demand anything at the expense of someone else. Emigrants with no loyalty to our great nation behave that way! Immigrant is not the same as emigrant!

    Shame on you entitlement lovers for demanding what I would give willingly if asked, and if truly needed! Shame on those that mandate my good humanity in the form of law. Shame on lawbreakers that write policy, and policy breakers that write laws! Shame on any politician for putting one group of voter on a pedestal for any reason, in any party, or of any color. Shame on anyone taking on the mission of slowly deconstructing our glorious country, and wrecking what our military sacrifices, have helped kept sacred, and for hundreds of years, SAFE from outside infiltration of our borders, for your personal, political and profit agendas!

    Stop HB5 visa investments from benefitting foreign countries and killing ours! I don’t care who started any of it! I care who is using it.

    Do not develop our communities at the detriment of our citizens by taking federal money that carries heavy future sacrifices by our citizens!

    STOP Government and Religious Partnerships, and STOP TITHING IMMEDIATELY TO ANY DENOMINATION OF CHURCH THAT DOES NOT SUPPORT SOVERIEGNTY OF THE USA OR SUPPORTS A BORDERLESS SOCIETY! TITHE ONLY TO THOSE THAT BELIEVE IN AMERICA AND SUPPORT AMERICA FIRST. IT IS OK TO LOSE A FEW FRIENDS AT CHURCH TO SAVE OUR COUNTRY. JESUS WILL APPROVE IF YOU MAKE UP THE HELP IN WAYS THAT SUPPORT OUR US CITIZENS TOO!

    DO NOT DONATE TO CHARITIES THAT YOU HAVE NOT RESEARCHED YOURSELF AND VERIFIED THE AGENDA OF!

    STOP BIG CORPORATIONS BY SHOPPING LOCALLY. IT WORKS.

    Trust me, WalMart will survive, but will have less to handout to the illegal agenda. If not, picket them! Same goes for any of these fools that support gentrification or reverse gentrification!

    If moms that hate guns can go nude in protest, you must be bolder and fight with extreme pride in our country! We are the new revolution! We are the change that hope forgot! Viva America!

    The GOP is a party of Christian Extremist, that are far more dangerous to Americans than Muslim Extremist have been since 9/11/01.

  • BubbaTex

    I guess the left has amnesia after the way they treated President Bush for 8 years. Senator Jay Rockefeller wrote a memo at the begging of President Bush’s term and said the democRats would exploit every issue and blame Bush. The democRats blamed Katrina on GWB when the incompetence was on the Governor of LA, Blanco and mayor of New Orleans, Nagan, who by the way is in jail for corruption. The democRats turned their backs on the American troops in Iraq for political reasons. The economic issues can be laid at the feet of the democRats and liberal policies.
    Obama is so incompetent and every decision is based on politics rather than what is best for the American people.
    If Obama is so smart why can’t we see his college transcripts.

  • melanie faulkner

    The right-wing has never cared about the color of obama’s skin as much as we are concerned with his lack of experience, which has brilliantly shown through over the last six years. His own statements of how he would side with Muslims and Islam over all the rest caused much mistrust considering what the U.S. has just gone through with 9/11 and the wars.

    Obama has said himself during speeches and in his own books that he was not born in Hawaii, and the birth certificate that was finally produced is horribly suspect. In addition he attended college as a foreign student. Why all the obfuscation and lack of transparency on his part in producing the proving document? The democrats and Obama caused the distrust themselves playing hide and seek with his birth records and school records which took years to get and the woman who produced those documents is now dead. Reminding us of all the dead bodies around Clinton’s.

    1. Liberals have been making a concerted effort to reduce and eliminate law abiding citizens ability to possess many types of fire-arms, has been under attack since the liberals swept the white house and congress. Their inability to due so is testament to pro second amendment rights advocates to preserve the wishes of our founding fathers.

    2. I think the only people who feel their freedoms slipping away are fly-over state Americans and the Conservatives still hoping for the return to sanity, that live in on the Liberal coasts of America.

    Questions 3 and 4 are non starters due to the abject failure of the roll-out of ACA and the continued collapse of O-care. We will never see a government takeover of health care or death panels because the deadlines for the ACA to go in affect keep moving by Executive Order and political pressure because of the negative effect ACA is having on liberal elections. Exploded on the launch pad is a good description for ACA.

    5. Socialism is alive and well and has been for quite some time. Social Security, Medi-Care, the nationalization of the education system and the large expansion of welfare programs we have seen over the last six years. Open your eyes it is all around you. Record stock levels have nothing to do with socialism, the federal manipulation of the market the possible federal takeover of U.S. energy markets do hint at the move toward socialist government. Government ownership in fortune 500 companies by way of bail-out is a move toward socialism. Government manipulation of energy costs has pushed a larger number of middle-class people into needing to rely on government programs. Government bail-outs of “to big to fail” companies and the push toward “green energy” has stagnated the recovery that would have happened years ago had there been no interference.

    The most recent surge of the stock market is due to oil prices going back down to where the should have been at the end of 2008. Coupled with the Republican sweep of Congress, clearly the market sees the swing back to sanity is in full effect. Let”s also not forget the hated “Tea-Party” gains in the last mid-term election that put a screeching halt to the liberal/progressive/socialist agenda. They were elected and sent to D.C to block and delay, excellent job done by most. Now we can pick up the pieces and rebuild the country I love.

  • Gary Bazydlo

    Ok, let me take a shot. First the premise is wrong. The right did not freak out about a black President. It freaked out about the junior senator from Illinois who lacked the experience and political savy to be effective and who was more liberal than any president in decades. The author making it at all about race shows he is incompetent. The second mistake that he labels kooks as conservatives – they are not. I am conservative. Limbaugh, Beck and Cruz are as offensive to me as they are to liberals. This is really too easy. Could I have more of a challenge please. Guns – he did not get the guns because Congress has prevented it. This writer (aka complete moron) confuses the fact that Obama is incompetent with his lack of intent or desire. Obama has spoken about registration, about making it harder to get a gun, and has had his attorney general argue that the Second Amendment does not protect the right of ordinary citizens to own firearms (on the other hand, giving them to Mexican drug runners is ok). So the intent is there, but thankfully Obama is incompetent at acting on his view of the Second Amendment. FREEDOMS – again, how much time do you have. Obama has ordered all Americans to buy insurance at inflated prices so that he can fund giving it to people who will vote for him. I can think of no other president who has ordered people to buy something on the open market that they would not other wise have purchased. The right to privacy took a pounding as Obama’s NSA took aim at our emails. The right to free speech and association has not fared so well under Obama’s IRS, especially if you are a right leaning political organization. And lets not forget the regulations – which by definition are controls on our rights. Obama passed 3400 of them – in one day – it was last Friday. HEALTHCARE – oh my God is this guy stupid. The only reason you are not feeling the impact is that Obama has – unconstitutionally – delayed the parts of the law that will hurt. For example, if you have a “Cadillac” health care plan, the $20,000 per person tax (yes, $20,000 per insured – I got that from my HR department) was delayed until next year. What will a $20,000 tax do? Force companies to drop cadillac plans, forcing their workers in to the government controlled exchanges. Still think you can keep your plan and your doctor? NOPE. The government passed regulations that made sure hundreds of thousands would lose their coverage and their doctors so they had to go in the government plans. Time is not running out on government take over, it is just beginning!!! Conservatives dont believe in death panels. Idiots do and they dont speak for me. If I hauled out all the crap the far left says, they would look like kooks too. How easy it is to assign stupid opinions to people that done hold them and then mock them for opinions they do not hold. Conservatives do understand that there are only two ways to pay for coverage for millions of new uninsured – ration care and raise costs. Obamacare does both. SOCIALISM – he is looking at the wrong records. How about record amounts of people on food stamps and welfare? How about transference of wealth under Obamacare? How about a complete absence of entitlement reform? LESS SAFE – premature withdrawal of troops from Iraq resulting in ISIS. Failure to establish US oil independence and export capability to weaken Russian hold on Europe. Failure to check Iranian nuclear advancement. Complete lack of effort to sercure our borders (one reporter, waiving an ISIS flag, crossed the border with no problem). ISLAM – again, conservatives do not claim Obama is a muslim, kooks do. But thanks for again assigning to conservatives an opinion they do not hold, and then mocking us for having an opinion we dont. If there is a more ignorant writer on the planet, I have not seen him or her. That was easy. Got any tough ones?

  • Matthew F. Mendonsa

    I wonder if you could explain why Obama even bothered to give a eulogy at the funeral for a person slain in the SC shooting and even sang Amazing Grace which is a strongly Christian song and the very next day light up the White House with the rainbow colors showing support for Same Sex Marriage which is an offence to all the Christian believers in this country. Why does he refer to the White House as ” his house ” when it belongs to the people and he is merely a temporary resident ? If he’s so caring and claiming to be a Christian, why is he telling our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan to obey Sharia Law ? Why is the narrative, ” Black Lives Matter ” even allowed since by very nature it is racist. Shouldn’t the narrative be, “All Lives Matter ” ?

  • origwwotp

    Allen, you are so hopeless. Your first sentence says you are not up for intelligent discussion. When someone is running for president, credentials are what is important. Obama didn’t have any. His senate attendance and voting record were enough to recognize this guy was not to be taken seriously. Simply being black does not qualify one for office. Republicans recognized this while Democrats got a thrill up their leg and voted for a drug addict. No one who allows pictures to be taken of themselves smoking dope has the level of intelligence necessary to be a public figure, much less the president. Nothing to do with skin color, everything to do with content of their character.

  • Brock Johnson

    Q: When is he finally coming to confiscate our guns?
    A: In the wake of this last shooting he has ramped up his gun control measures. Unless you’re blind, you have already seen the several federal gun confiscations from private owners that have committed no crime already. So it’s already begun unless you’re too dumb to see it.

    Q:What freedoms have we lost?
    A: How about our freedom to practice and live by our own religious values? When a Christian baker can be forced out of business for simply saying they would prefer not to bake your cake, there is a serious problem. How about the freedom of expression? Those that want to wave the Confederate Battle Flag should still be able to even if you don’t like it. The government is stepping in to try to decide what should be morally correct for our nation and that is not it’s place.

    Q: Where are the death panels?
    A: Have you seen a local VA? Being a veteran myself, I know how long it can take to get a single appointment, and if they don’t feel you warrant something, you don’t get it. Even if it would be the best for you care wise. It’s all about budget and not about care. This is the same structure of your Obamacare system.

    Q: Where is all the socialism?
    A: You do realize that taking away from those that have and giving to those that won’t do for themselves is considered redistribution of wealth and a socialist tactic right? You do realize that our welfare and entitlement programs have jumped astronomically during this presidency because they figure they can make enough by not working while relying on those that do. The problem with socialism is that sooner or later you run out of other people’s money.

    Q:How has Obama made the country less safe?
    A: Let me see. Purposeful race baiting to incite our own riots and disorder for a start. You did read the letter he sent to his brother while running for office in Illinois right? He got into politics for racial reasons. He stated it directly himself. Then, how about the growing threat of ISIS in the Middle East, and their expansion around the globe? They were not even a legitimate threat till he decided to surrender everything that was gained in the Middle East and let them take over. Not only let them, but shuttle guns to their supporters. There is proof of all this too if you just look under the freedom of information act. Then how about amnesty for illegals? Shutting how many into our country with no physicals or checks? With no background checks to ensure we’re not getting just criminals? Where do you think these diseases we haven’t seen in decades in the US came from people? Not to mention a completely porous border and directives to directly hinder the Border Agents from controlling it.

    Q: Why if he is a Muslim did he support gay and same-sex marriage?
    A: Ok, this may be tough for you to wrap your little liberal brain around , but I’ll try. It’s about a basic war against religion period. You need to remove it if you want to have a more socialistic control. The Supreme Court saying it is morally right and should be legal all around the 50 states is a huge victory in this regard. Once you establish precedence that you can use the Federal Government to decide what is morally correct, then all gloves are off. This is already proved considering the law states that same sex marriage has to be recognized around the country. It doesn’t say churches have to perform it. Why? Because that would be against their freedom to practice their religion guaranteed under the 1st Amendment. BUT, the government is now trying to come down on those churches that won’t and force them to, otherwise they lose their tax exempt status. So this is basically an attempt to strong arm the Christian churches into falling in line. Now if he is a Muslim, it would show… How? When was the last time you saw an Islamic Mosque pressured to preform a same sex wedding? When was the last time you saw an Islamic business shut down for failing to serve a Christian member? They hypocrisy is so in your face it’s become stupid.

    Hopefully you were able to wrap your tiny liberal brains around some of this, but I’m sure the time I took typing it was wasted. About 95% of you will stop after the first paragraph and call me a racist homophobic conservative and say you won the argument. Get educated people…
