    What Happened January 1, 2014!

    The danger to America is not only Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting an inexperienced man like him with the Presidency of the United States. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama Presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their President. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. Our great Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their President.

    Get a grip, face reality! Obama is worthless! He is the worst US President that we have ever had. Even worse than Jimmy Carter!

    In case you didn't notice. Here is what happened on January 1, 2014:



    Top Medicare tax went from 1.45% to 2.35%


    Top income tax bracket went from 35% to 39.6%
    

Top income payroll tax went from 37.4% to 52.2%
    

Capital Gains tax went from 15% to 28%


    Dividends tax went from 15% to 39.6%
    

Estate tax went from 0% to 55%

Remember this fact:
    


    These taxes were all passed only with democrat votes, no republicans voted for these taxes.

These taxes were all passed under the Affordable Care Act, Obamacare. And, you thought it was a healthcare bill, didn't you.   

    Better think twice when you vote in November!

    Let’s get real here.

    The US and it’s Allies have determined the names and locations of the top 15 supporters and financiers of the ISIS, ISIL and other brutal Islamic State militant terrorist groups. The US and it’s Allies are going to use every means necessary to eliminate you and your family members from the face of this earth no matter where you go or where you hide.

    You may expect this action to start within the next 10 days!

    If this action is ignored, the next 15 top supporters and financiers will be our targets. The US and it’s Allies will relentlessly continue this action until there are no supporters or financiers of any brutal Islamic State militant groups left on the face of the earth.

    Signed:

    USA and Allies

    Thx wally. We are wasting a lot of innocent lives to please the whims of the wealthy. Those who are supporting and funding the Islamic State militant terrorist groups are MORE guilty than the fighters that are setting the bombs and pulling the triggers….. Just my humble opinion. The sooner they find out that they can no longer hide from the evil that they are doing the quicker peace will reign…..

    co1trane, apparently you did understand, comprehend the salient points or read my post completly through. Try it reading it again and let me know your opinion/feelings.

  • dowjones1234 by dowjones1234 Aug 25, 2014 9:54 AM Flag

    We all keep hearing, seeing and reading about how vicious and brutal that the Islamic State militant terrorist groups are.
    Instead of fighting these individual terrorist groups in endless battles and wars, the US and all of it’s Allies should find out who the major funders and supporters of these groups are.
    Once that information is known and verified, the US and all of it’s Allies should use every means possible to destroy each one of these individuals physically as well as economically.
    Unfortunately, I think the US and all of it’s Allies already know who these individuals are but, instead of eliminating them on an individual basis, we continue to perpetuate the never ending ground wars through the sale of guns and ammunition.
    Multiple, periodic and large arial strikes that would eliminate at least 90% of these individuals, where ever they may be located, would set back the advance of those groups, warn other rich people to think twice about supporting brutal Islamic State militant terrorist groups and save tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of lives of innocent people around the world. Let’s get started!

    9 Big Mistakes!

    tedbazol:

    thx for your response and opinion. I would very much appreciate your point by point refutation of my stated points, thx in advance for your wisdom and facts.

    Now regarding the funding and support of ISIS. The Iranian government may not be directly funding ISIS but rest assured the ruling class in Iran are seeing to it that funding and support to ISIS as well as several other terrorist groups is and has been ongoing for quite sometime and are responsible for much of the present and continued Middle East turmoil.

    Presently and more so as time goes on, it is a proven fact that Obama and his liberal, progressive and democratic supporters were elected to office on lies, mistruths, omissions and mistakes. Twice!

    When I think of what Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Eric Holder, Barbra Boxer, Charles Rangel, #$%$ Durbin, Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson Lee and others have done to our Great Republic over the past 6 to 10 years, it absolutely turns my stomach.

  • dowjones1234 by dowjones1234 Aug 12, 2014 7:19 PM Flag

    The US and all of it's Allies must to do a blitz and find out the details (names, detailed family member information, countries, addresses if any, banks and bank accounts where they do business, assets, investments etc.etc.) of who and whom are funding all of these radical terrorists groups. Once that information has been assembled, give a date certain for stopping the funding and support of those terrorists organizations or pay the consequences of deadly force and personal elimination.

    The US and their allies should work together to use all force necessary to eliminate all of those that support and fund any terrorist organization world wide.

    We continue to allow people that have no morals, values or principles to beat us with our own stick of high morals, values and principles.

    It’s time to circle the wagons with all of our allies, draw a hard and unified line and with all terrorist organizations and let them know we mean deadly business just as they do....

    Let's assemble the sides and go to work!

    A recent article posted in a Chicago, Ill news paper by:
    Reis R. Kash, Springfield, Ill.

    Those who compare the bare-chested conqueror of the Crimea with the metrosexual ruler of the United States and find our emperor weak to the point of deserving ridicule miss the essential strength of President Obama.

    It’s no ordinary weakling who can turn a once-respected country into an international joke; reduce Congress to a gaggle of sniveling sycophants; turn the world’s finest medical system into a failed third-rate socialist nightmare with a stroke of his pen; shatter our Constitution without attempted recourse by the sons and daughters of frontiersmen and pioneers whose blood was used to write that inspired document; and turn the people of our once-united states into a herd of competing minorities who, like suckling pigs, are each afraid to lose his place on the government teat should he raise his voice to protest the ruin of our country.

    So don’t denigrate the nonentity ruler who has overcome his uncertain ancestry and ludicrous incompetence to do what no other king of dictator has been able to do in our 237-year history: He has destroyed America.

    “Al Qaeda has been decimated.”

    “The 1980’s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back.”

    “Iraq’s future will be in the hands of it’s people.”

    “A red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. That would change my calculus.”

    “Egyptians have made it clear that nothing less than genuine democracy will carry the day.”

    “To take out a credit card from the bank of China in the name of our children. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.”

    “No question that Libya would be better off with Qaddafi out of power.”

    “You know, they said we needed to triple the Border Patrol. Or now they’re going to say we need to quadruple the Border Patrol. Or they’ll want a higher fence. Maybe they’ll need a moat. Maybe they’ll want to put alligators in the moat.”

    Obama’s history of predicting world events isn’t too stellar. Perhaps that’s because neither is his policy...

    1. Jamming through The Health-care Reform Bill without one Republican vote. Present approval rating of the Health-care Reform Bill is 39.8% with 55.8% disapproving. Coupled with all the lies and mistruths from the President before, during and after the jam through the approval rating is surprisingly high.
    2. Failing to stop Iran’s nuclear enrichment processes above the electrical generation level.
    3. So far, Obama has green lighted Assad, Putin and Iran. And, Iran is backing and supporting ISIS as well as Hamas.
    4. Obama has Ballooned the National Deficit from $10 Trillion to it’s present figure of $17 Trillion. It’s estimated to be at $20 Trillion by the end of his second term. Yikes!!
    5. He has failed to fix the housing market. Freddie and Fannie are still in business and going strong.
    6. He over promised on the economic recovery to all those that wanted to believe and were willing to listen but were to uneducated and inexperienced to see through the fog of lies and mistruths.
    7. He has created a permanent underclass of people with no jobs and no education. He, his White House staff and Senate minions have flooded the nation with unlawful immigrants that are in direct competition with lawful employed and unemployed Americans.
    8. Obama and his supporters are running a disinformation campaign that is not only against but is ruining our Great Republic.
    9. He and his minions have enhanced the welfare system so that it now pays more for people to stay home than to work. Additionally, he has made no efforts to police those that are taking advantage of the system.

    There's an old sea story about a ship's Captain who inspected his sailors, and afterward told the first mate that his men smelled bad...
     
     The Captain suggested perhaps it would help if the sailors would change underwear occasionally. The first mate responded, "Aye, aye sir, I'll see to it immediately!"
    The first mate went straight to the sailors’ berth deck and announced, "The Captain thinks you guys smell bad and wants you to change your underwear." He continued, "Reid, you change with Schumer, Obama, you change with Holder, and Pelosi, you change with Boxer."
     
     THE MORAL OF THE STORY:

    Someone may come along and promise "Change" but don't count on things smelling any better.

    Obama, “Change You Can Count On.” He so love the poor he created millions more.... And, they voted for him... Twice!

    The definition of the word conundrum: Something that is puzzling or confusing.

    1. America is capitalist and greedy; yet half of the population is subsidized.
    2. Half the population is subsidized; yet they think they are victims.
    3. They think they are victims; yet their representatives run the government.
    4. Their representatives run the government; yet the poor keep getting poorer.
    5. The poor keep getting poorer; yet they have things that people on other countries can only dream about.
    6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about; yet they want America to be more like those other countries.

    Three short sentences should tell you about the direction of our current government and cultural environment:

    1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few.
    2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. But we never hear about welfare of food stamps running out of money? What's interesting is the first group worked and earned their money, the second group didn't.
    3. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not cutting or stopping the payments or benefits to illegal aliens?

    Am I missing something here?

    BT541, I did work and retire from Chevron, great company and they treated me very well.

    Having been retired for several years now and have had more time to read, think and contemplate about the present state or our Great Republic, I now feel more strongly than ever that Chevron should move to Houston, Texas where attitudes, values, morals and principles are more, “Main Stream.”

    Presently, the majority of our population and cooperations are being bullied by a small percentage of our population and supported by the liberal, progressive media that continues to grease, “The Squeaking Wheel.”

    Still invested in Chevron and collecting those great dividends!
