The loons love this guy, jn. That says a lot about the loons.
After The Golfer in Chief miss his latest security meeting, Jimmy was seen doing hand springs and cartwheels.
He probably had an important golf date he couldn't pass up.
This guy is positively making Jimmy Carter look competent.
The Democrat/Socialist Party hopes to gain from this mas migration. They will no longer be called illegal immigrants. They are now to be referred to as undocumented Democrats.
I've heard that before and Putin is supposed to have said it.
Once again, two thumbs down for telling the truth. Knee pad wearers can't stand the truth. Reality makes their heads hurt.
Beach, you can't logic with an ideologue. Logic makes their heads hurt. They blame Bush for the assassination of Lincoln, menstrual cramps and the crash of '29. But The Golfer in Chief is responsible for nothing. He's a saint and as such is blameless of everything that has gone wrong in his admin and to make matters worse to the knee pad wearers nothing in his admin has ever gone wrong.
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. 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. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president."
In it he said "THAK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!" Until now I was thought to be the worst president in the modern era. You have just relieved me of that burden.
Bec, you got a thumbs down for telling the truth. loons can't stand reality. It makes their heads hurt.
The loons will never address reality beach. You should know that by now. Reality makes their heads hurt.
You ask a rational question on a stock board about an investment opportunity in the Devil's weed and you get three thumbs down. Is there no justice?
Of course a unlimited supply of cheap labor will drive wages down. It is Eco 101 but I guess the loons failed Eco 101. They just can't wrap their heads around simple basic concepts. They will blindly follow anything their socialist masters tell them. If you blindly follow it requires no thought and we all know thinking makes their heads hurt.
RAISE THE MINIMUM WAGE TO $14 AN HOUR USING THIS ONE WEIRD TRICK!
By The Devi's Handmaiden, Ann Coulter
February 26, 2014
Democrats believe they've hit on the perfect issue to distract from the horror of Obamacare in the 2014 elections: the minimum wage.
Apparently, increasing the minimum wage was not important for American workers during the first five years of Obama's presidency -- least of all his first two years, when Democrats controlled Congress and could have passed anything. (And did!)
No. The minimum wage did not become a pressing concern until an election year in which the public's hatred of Obamacare is expected to be the central issue.
As The New York Times explained, Democrats see the minimum wage as an issue that "will place Republican candidates in a difficult position," and also as a tool "to enlarge the electorate in a nonpresidential election, when turnout among minorities and youths typically drops off."
(Unlike Republicans, Democrats consider it important to win elections.)
To most people, it seems as if the Democrats are giving workers something for nothing. But there are always tradeoffs. No serious economist denies that increasing the minimum wage will cost jobs. If it's not worth paying someone $10 an hour to do something, the job will be eliminated -- or it simply won't be created.
The minimum wage is the perfect Democratic issue. It will screw the very people it claims to help, while making Democrats look like saviors of the working class, either by getting them a higher wage or providing them with generous government benefits when they lose their jobs because of the mandatory wage hike.
Of course, the reason American workers’ wages are so low in the first place is because of the Democrats' policies on immigration. Republicans might want to point that out.
Since the late 1960s, the Democrats have been dumping about a million low-skilled immigrants on the country every year, driving down wages, especially at the lower end of the spectrum.
According to Harvard economist George Borjas, our immigration policies have reduced American wages by $402 billion a year -- while increasing profits for employers by $437 billion a year. (That's minus what they have to pay to the government in taxes to support their out-of-work former employees. Of course, we're all forced to share that tax burden.)
Or, as the White House puts it on its website promoting an increase in the minimum wage, "Today, the real value of the minimum wage has fallen by nearly one-third since its peak in 1968."
Why were wages so high until 1968? Because that's when Teddy Kennedy's 1965 Immigration Act kicked in, bringing in about a million immigrants a year, almost 90 percent of them unskilled workers from the Third World.
Our immigration policies massively redistribute wealth from the poorest Americans to the richest. It's a basic law of economics that when the supply goes up, the price goes down. More workers means the price of their labor plummets.
Unfortunately, politicians spend a lot more time talking to rich employers than to working-class Americans. And the rich apparently have an insatiable appetite for cheap labor.
Having artificially created a glut of low-wage workers, now Democrats want to artificially raise their wages.
It's win-win-win-win-win for Democrats.
-- Employees who get a higher minimum wage are grateful to the Democrats.
-- Employees who lose their jobs because of the minimum wage hike are grateful to the Democrats for generous government handouts.
-- Poor immigrants who need government benefits are grateful to the Democrats.
-- American businesses enjoying the deluge of cheap labor are grateful to the Democrats.
-- Democratic politicians guaranteed re-election by virtue of ethnic bloc voting are grateful to the Democrats.
Do Republicans have any principles at all? Why isn't the GOP demanding an end to this dump of unskilled workers/Democratic voters on the country?
Democrats show how much they love the poor by importing a million more of them to America each year. But then they prevent the last batch of poor immigrants from getting decent, well-paying jobs by bringing in another million poor people the next year.
You want a higher minimum wage? Turn off the spigot of low-wage workers pouring in to the U.S. and it will rise on its own through the iron law of supply and demand.
In response to the Democrats' minimum wage proposal, Republicans should introduce a bill ending both legal and illegal immigration until the minimum wage rises naturally to $14 an hour.
Australia has a $15 minimum wage for adults -- more than twice the U.S. minimum wage. Meanwhile, their official unemployment rate is lower than ours: 6 percent compared to 6.6 percent in the U.S. -- and that's with a lousy $7.25 minimum wage.
Sound good? Try immigrating there. Australia has some of the most restrictive immigration policies in the world. Their approach to immigration is to admit only people who will be good for Australia. (Weird!) Applicants are evaluated on a point system that gives preference to youth, English proficiency, education and skill level.
Similarly, New Zealand will soon have an official minimum wage of $14.25 for adults. Even our Democrats aren't proposing that! New Zealand's minimum wage hit $10.10 -- the Democrats' current proposal for us -- back in 2006. Their unemployment rate is also 6 percent -- up from several years of 4 percent unemployment a few years ago.
Like Australia, New Zealand's immigration laws are based on helping New Zealand, not on helping other countries get rid of their poor people, which is our policy.
Instead of training the citizenry to look at the government as our paternal benefactor, distributing minimum wage laws and unemployment benefits in important election years, why don't Republicans put an end to the artificial glut of low-wage, low-skilled workers being imposed on the country by our immigration laws?
Republicans could guarantee a $14 minimum wage simply by closing the pipeline of more than 1 million poor immigrants coming in every year.
Businessmen will gripe, but maybe the GOP could explain to their Chamber of Commerce friends that they will help them by slashing oppressive regulations, reining in government bureaucracies, passing tort reform, etc. They'll also be able to cut taxes because the welfare state will shrink, a result of Americans going back to work.
But if the plutocrats insist on admitting another 30 million Democratic voters in order to get ever-cheaper labor, then, soon, Republicans won't be in a position to help them at all.
Hillary Clinton Promised Clinton Library Would Be Open And Records Would Be Available Earlier Than Legally Required
I guess not.

Politico reported this week that records from the Clinton White House held at the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Ark., are still being kept hidden from the public despite their processed status and the expiration more than a year ago of the legal reasoning for withholding the documents.
Politico reports that about 33,000 pages of documents have not been released, citing the National Archives, which runs the library.
In 2004, then-Sen. Hillary Clinton said that records at the Clinton Library would actually be available earlier than legally required. Clinton said the library would be about “openness” where people can “come and really study,” adding “everything’s going to be available.”
Here’s the transcript from Clinton’s 2004 interview on CNN with Larry King:
Larry King: Well, make a call as I said. Do you think the impeachment thing was handled tastefully and well?
Hillary Clinton: I do. I do. I’ve told everyone that the history was going to be full and accurate. Nothing’s left out. Obviously, not everything can be shown. But there’s going to be access to all of the documents. In fact, Bill is going to be making his documents accessible even earlier than legally required.
LK: He is?
HC: He is. Because he really thinks it’s important. That’s one of the things the library really stands for. It physically stands for openness with all the glass and the light. But he wants it to be a place where people come and really study. And everything’s going to be available.
George Soros, the billionaire financier and liberal activist, was dealt a legal blow this week when the European Court of Human Rights refused to overturn his nine-year-old criminal conviction for insider trading.
A French court convicted Soros in 2002 for insider trading in the late 1980s, but the Hungary-born investor appealed, arguing that the French law on insider trading at the time was too ambiguous to find him guilty.
But the European court ruled Thursday in a 4-3 decision that the French rules were clear enough to convict him.
The loons love this guy but would hate him if he were a conservative. Hypocrites!!!!
Fraud, the loons hate the Koch brothers but love the N:A:ZI collaborator Soros who is convicted felon in France.
To the loons, Joe is a rocket scientist. They love this moron. That says a lot about them.
They want to clear the way for undocumented Democrats to vote. In order to get into the NAACP Convention or any state or national Democrat convention you need a photo id. The Dems are stifling voters by requiring photo ids.
