Can't let you get by with that. Latinos call P. Obama the export president. In 1986 Reagan gave 3 million Illegals amnesty, with the amnesty he and congress also passed a law that was suppose to make it more difficult for illegals to enter and stay in the US., but that part was guess what? Wasn't enforced. And the vast majority of illegals in this country came in during the gw BuSht regime. Even the most conservative talk show hosts of the time, like Rush Limbaugh, O'Rilley and Lou Dobbs were complaining about it, they were clamoring about putting National Guard or even the military on our borders to keep them out. And Lou Dobbs while still at CNN did segment after segment showing how the gw BuSht regime made it impossible for our Border Patrol and Law Enforcement to stop it. I never missed one of his segments for as long as he was on CNN. I also believe he lost his show over it. All I'm saying is if we are to stop such things we have to be honest about who is most responsible for it.
""When I took office, I committed to fixing this broken immigration system. And I began by doing what I could to secure our borders. Today, we have more agents and technology deployed to secure our southern border than at any time in our history. And over the past six years, illegal border crossings have been cut by more than half."
— President Obama, November 20, 2014"
And I still don't like P. Obama, mainly for the back stabbing Trans Pacific Partnership he negotiated in secrecy, that will flatly destroy the good paying jobs the US still has, and even more importantly sell out our sovereignty.
Job displacement is an interesting subject to me. Since the next generation of smart robots will replace virtually every good paying manufacturing job in the world, that's in progress as I write. Then we have programs that have eliminated book keepers and accountants. The over abundance of well educated people, willing to work for less just to get a job is driving down the costs of labor in all industries, never mind the hordes of less educated people working fast food and Walmart type service jobs, that are unionizing in order to get a fair days pay. Good paying fed and state jobs are under pressure because people can't afford the taxes that support them any longer, so they privatize thinking they will get a cut in taxes and better service, but what they get is neither, corps step in skim the cream for their investors, and we end up with is lower paying government jobs, with less benefits and worse services. Call me a Luddite if you will but because I believe more jobs will be lost through technology advances then will be gained. The different this time is the population explosion and most of the world assets being concentrated into fewer and fewer hands, leaving less opportunity for the masses.
US Corps pay some of the lowest taxes in the world, and people that don't think so are ignorant of the facts. The gap between effective and statutory rates is huge, with the average US corp paying under 13%. In some years many US Corps pay no taxes at all, in fact some paid more in foreign taxes than US taxes, and many fortune 500 companies that showed a profit paid no US taxes on it The problem is Political outlets acting as News Outlets, politicizing information,instead of telling it like it is. Of course Fox so called News comes to mind. So why do politicians keep making the bogus claims? Simple it's a wedge between the D. and R. that they like to use, despite the fact it is untrue, so what is new in politics?
Not angry, just trying to figure out how you can get so many things so messed up. It may not even be your fault, you may have Alzheimer's for all I know, and that would explain it, in which case I hope you have a full and fast recovery.
hm- As usual you miss the points of the post you refer to. I'm not a strong Christian, But I do know a lot about the bible simply because I read it, you people who call yourself Christians ought to do the same. I just point out the hypocrisy and beliefs of the pompous righties, whose beliefs are in conflict with their prophets teaching. If your comprehension level is as low as it appears to be, you need to get out of the stock market while before you lose everything, past post indicate you are a loser.
And you need to read my post again, because I said war migrants should have a safe place and all the necessities of life supplied to them, until the war ends at which time they can go home and rebuild their own country they way they want it.
But, I'm not surprised by your reply after all misquotes, misinformation, disinformation and spin is what righties do.
Too much oil because not enough demand. Evidence to this the No.2 oil importing country China, economy is slowing for sure, with some saying even worse to come, in addition their strategic oil reserves are now full. Japan the No.3 importer of oil in recession. And the US No.1 importer of oil economy benefiting from lower fuel prices, but by itself won't be enough resurrect our dying middle class. Western Europe economies struggling. And what does the right fungus rot have to say? Its the D. fault. Perhaps the D. won't investigate because unlike the past hedge funds aren't manipulating the prices higher, today there isn't anything to investigate when it comes to that anyway.. Oil demand hasn't risen mainly because the world is still suffering from the R. caused world wide depression. If you want an investigation how about investigating the illegal, and unjust war that massacred tens of thousands of innocent people and destabilized the mid east, the wars that the gw BuSh regime is wholly responsible for. And while we are at we should investigate the nine billion USD sent there that still remains unaccounted. Its a black hole no one knows what happened to it, so much money stacked on pallets that it could be seen from the space station, but its gone and our first MBA regime says we have no at clue.
Toady Wall Street is way better off after the R. depression, and main street is struggling at best. All this compliments of the regime that the right was most happy to point out would bring us capitalistic utopia because their P., gw BuSh was the first MBA ever elected to the high office, and because of that we would have the most wonderful economy ever, R. had six years of total Fed control. And today we have
an oligarchy to show for it.
I should add that any man who is over eighteen and capable should be fighting ISIS, not immigrating to another country.
I don't want anymore immigrants period, we are not even taking care of our own, and bringing in more people in need will just add to their problems.
Why isn't it possible to establish safe zones where all war migrants can be protected and live with basic necessities supplied by the US, Germany, England, Greece Poland, Russia, Italy, so on, why is the solution immigration? When the wars are over they then can return home.
NO, instead of invading a sovereign country on false pretenses, and killing thousands of innocent people in the process, turning sympathy for us into hatred, and making enemies out of people who wanted to help. We should have done what we did in the past, go after the individuals who were responsible. And by the way gw Busht gave up on catching or killing bin laden, its recorded on youtube if you want to see and hear him say it again, and your hated black man didn't, and we all know the outcome of that.
The cause is reaganomics, since reaganomics the middle class has been in steady decline and since NAFTA that was pushed by mainly R. reagan, gwh and D. clinton that's despite 2/3rds of the then D. congress who were against it. Since reagans election the US has lost 50,000 factories, that primarily sustained the middle class. Now we have Obama pushing more of the same with the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), if it passes it will not only undermine our sovereignty it will end most of what is left of our middle class.
The terrorist army will be defeated, but I'm sure they will go underground and occasionally will be able to make trouble, and that will probably be with us for another twenty years or longer, depending on what kind of government eventually emerges in the mid east.
One thing I can say for certainty FrankenCheney and gw Bush's measures didn't make us safer, it did the complete opposite they created ISIS.
I would agree the price should rise by then, if they don#$%$ means big trouble for the world's economy. But, I still believe the main reason for low oil prices, is more on the consumption side than on the production side. In other words the worlds economy is anemic.
According to a couple of polls reported by Thom Hartmann today, Bernie beats both Carson and Trump by double digits, strange that what the right refers to as the demonic lefty news outlets hasn't reported on that. Seems like the commie news would be all over that. Maybe the righties don't know what there talking about? Yea, that's a joke, because we know there is no maybe.
cg0- "What did he say that was incorrect?" EVERYTHING.
I disagree vehemently with P. Obama's trade ideas, which pretty much cancels anything good that I thought he may bring. With that said, up to this point I mostly agree with his Iraq policies, as I would no matter who was P,.
I'm in agreement with your points, but in the defense of the populace many never get the pure truth. In order to keep people from uniting they are bombarded by falsehoods, half truths, and twisted facts. R. want democracy as long as they define what it is, and if the populace don't want what they offer, they simply steal elections. The group Anonymous claimed they stopped voter theft in the last election, the book "Matrix of Deceit," is one of a number of books that give proof to voter theft by the right. They have over four hundred outlets that form the opinions of their listeners, they claim the major news outlets are liberal, but when an anchor reported that gw BuSht was AWOL from the National guard, he was fired even though what he reported was thoroughly vetted. Besides voter theft, they also have mastered Gerrymandering, and voter suppression. If the populace got the whole truth and were allowed to vote, R. would sit in the back rolls of our government just as they did for fifty years after FDR's New Deal, that's why they have to lie and cheat.
I'm in favor of planting boots in gw Busht and FrankenCheney's posteiror
Ports are backed up with oil tankers. ISIS controls very little oil anywhere, what little they do is very heavy oil that is refined into mainly kerosene, used in that part of the world for heating and cooking.. And they are about to lose control of that.
