We are told that we have to be tolerant of others not like us. We have to accept their chosen life styles and opinions. Why do they not have to respond in kind?
Hey board monitor, have you no defense for all these lies that have been brought to your attention? Why is it that you can find fault with all the disagree with you and your favorite lying politician, but have no defense for these lies and how they have negatively impacted this country?
Come on, surely you can do better than to just ignore the truth!
I disagree; a genius politician is one that can skillfully manipulate his compatriots and the opposition into doing similar things and thinking that they won the debate.
Obama has none of those skills. Obama's tactics are more around 'skillfully' hiding the truth or creating a false truth to win what he wants. He plays on the misery and dissatisfaction with life to pretend he really cares about those that are less successful in our world. He creates a crisis to lead many into thinking that he has a solution to a problem that really didn’t need his solution.
He cares only about winning his point, making sure that his legacy will reflect kindly on his efforts and propping up a post Presidential career as a speaker and writer.
As a leader, he is an abject failure. A genius or even a moderately skillful politician could do better and accomplish considerably more positive things.
“But the way to change laws you don't like is not to shut down the government at the expense of the entire country."
Nor is the way to change laws by fiat on decisions made by the wanna be King of the Country.
The ACA is just one of the symptoms of the many a varied problems created by this current administration and one vehicle used to try and change the course of our over-the-top spending and taxing liberals Congress.
Obama opened the budget issues by not putting one on the table for years, so that no one could hold him or Democrats accountable. Democrats started the slide into financial oblivion with their so-called 'fair housing' tactics. There are no clean hands in Washington, on either side and your quoting a liberal journalist proves nothing. His is just one of the many opinions of what are problems are and how they are created and solved.

Kick Your Feet Up For $18,000
While more than 90 percent of its 18,250 employees were furloughed during the government shutdown, NASA was paying some 20 people $18,000 each to lie in bed for weeks as part of a bed-rest study. But don’t call them couch potatoes; they were “pillownauts.”
$325,525 Study To Prove A Calmer Wife Is A Happier Life
Husbands will like this, but the wives won’t. The Wastebook revealed that the National Institutes for Health spent more than $300,000 to conduct a study of 82 married couples, finding that wives would be better satisfied with their marriages if they just calmed down sooner after fighting with their hubbies. Note to men out there: don’t follow this advice. The last thing a woman wants to hear when she is angry is to “calm down.”
The Million-Dollar Virginia Bus stop
This isn't just shelter from the rain or sunshine, or a place to rest while you wait for the bus. Why be so average when you can have heated benches and sidewalks, and wireless zones for personal computers? Apparently that’s what’s up at a SuperStop bus stop in Arlington County, Va., according to the Wastebook.
These guys don't think anyone is watching or cares. The new American Royalty is pretending voters don't exist.

$17 Million Brothel Tax Exemption
It’s not only the customers who are getting a happy ending. It appears that brothels in Nevada are taking advantage of millions in tax deductions for things like groceries, salaries and even the wages of prostitutes, as well as breast implants and costumes.
$50 Million For Google Searches
The Department of Commerce’s National Technical Information Service (NTIS) states that its mission is to promote American innovation and economic growth through the collection and sharing of scientific, technical and engineering information to the public and industry. According to its website, the NTIS provided information management solutions to other federal agencies without appropriated funding.
But according to Coburn’s wasteful spending report, the NTIS has gotten a bit innovative itself, charging other federal agencies and taxpayers for reports, many of which can be found online. About 74 percent of the agency's reports were readily available from multiple other public sources. Moreover, a $79 CD-ROM, a best seller for the agency, can be freely downloaded from another website.
Obamacare’s $684 Million Marketing Costs
Can’t say this was an unexpected entry -- but the numbers are jaw-dropping nonetheless. It cost the Obama administration more than $319 million thus far to build HealthCare.gov, which had a fumbled roll out on Oct. 1 after being riddled with technical glitches. However, based on data from the Associated Press, the report stated that to publicly market the website cost more than double what was spent to create it.
Army Waste Nearly $300 Million On Blimp
For nearly four years the Army spent nearly $300 million developing a massive unmanned blimp known as the Long Endurance Multi-Intelligence Vehicle (LEMV) to continuously stake out the Afghan battlefield. However, the Army ended the project this year and sold the blimp to the contractor building it, for a mere $301,000.
Speaking of handouts, this administration is now set to reduce retirement benefits to our service men and women, but not for other government workers like Congressional members. They are against changing the loopholes that allow illegal immigrants to receive Federal benefits but will cut benefits for those that protect this country instead. How do the liberals explain away this shame?
The Tea Party didn't shut down the government. The Democrats consistent refusal to negotiate, to present a budget for a vote for several years and for readily agreeing to sequester because they gambled that they could force the Republicans to back off, shut down the government. The right stuck to their position and the gamble failed. Poor assumptions and ego caused the left to fail yet again.
Ideology of the left and stubbornness on their part is the biggest cause of others in Congress trying to right the ship of state and move forward.
The ACA is turning out to be a nightmare for the left with a looming election and it is not working or achieving the results promised by Obama, Harry, Nancy and others. You can't keep you doctor or insurance, costs are climbing higher than before, and the savings promised are non-existent. This administration continues to lie about the benefits and the intent of this program.
This administration lies about a great many things and it is beginning to catch up with them. They have no one but themselves to blame, although they will continue to blame, Bush, the Tea Party (which technically doesn't exist) the weather, the FED, anti-Muslim protestors, etc. They accept zero accountability for any of these scandals or failures.
Speaking of phony positions, the Muslims and the Pope, and this administrations issues with both; why is it that the Muslims firmly believe that abortion is an abomination, as does the Pope, that this administration never forces the issue with that religion?
I am perfectly at peace with myself. My family is at peace with me. My friends respect me and often listen to my ideas and thoughts. I had a good career and an even better retirement.
I don't consider any difference of opinion with you a loss, but an occasion to point out how illogical, blinkered, and biased you and your ilk actually are.
Peace be upon you and yours.
I already told you that you’re an idiot for suggesting you lost the election because you’re candidate was white.
Never said that butthead. I said that millions of voters voted for him because he was black. Not just blacks, but many duped liberals that thought having a black President was a cool thing to do. They didn't tell me personally, they told many different news organizations and others. There are a great many interviews that have been done and polls that have been taken that reflect similar results. I don't have to look them up, because I am not one those fools that think this man is good for America. You're the poll 'expert' and seem to have all the poll results at your fingertips, go look them up.
This man had no business experience, very little government experience and even that wasn't noteworthy, so based on those factors alone, why was he qualified to be President?
He had a history of associating with known criminals, soon to be criminals and radicals. Are those the traits that causes you to think he would be a competent President? Please explain how but without complaining about how poor you think the alternates were. It isn't about alternatives, it is about this man that is corrupting our government and our society.
Oh come on TB, you know that all these are tall tales put out in the public my either the Tea Party or Fox News. Lord Barry would never stoop to the level of saying things that were untrue to protect himself, his plans or anyone in his administration. The world must be full of lairs that simply are racists and don't like Obama.
Oh here we go again. More deflection of the lies, failed results, poor management and little understanding of what is necessary to lead by our current President with tales of woe about past Presidents.
Wasn't this guy the one that said 'we must move forward and not look back', but apparently moving forward, and quickly, is only necessary when wanting to move past one of his latest scandals before more lies have to be told.
The fact that the man lied, intentionally, knowing that he was lying and the impact of those lies holds no weight with you, but the fact that I misspelled a word is all consuming.
Wonderful, and with that contribution to the discussion, you expect respect and attention?
You're simply a failed regime's deflector. Are you being paid to do so, or have you simply appointed yourself the Yahoo board monitor? Is your experience being the hall monitor in grade school...you know the kid that ratted out all his class mates?
And how many blacks have admitted publicly that they voted for Obama because 'he is one of us' or because he is black? Answer; millions.
How many liberals voted for him simply because they thought it would be cool to have the first non-white President be a Democrat? They knew little or nothing about him or his past.
He had little or no history of ever serving, meaning to actually serve and participate in governing. He had little history of ever working in an economy he was going to intentionally work to change, and did, but for the worse.
Little was known of his foreign affairs philosophies, and when we did find out, even Democrats were shocked. He publicly stated his aversion to the way this country was founded and that he thought he could negotiate with all our enemies and cause them to change their ways. He won’t even negotiate with representatives of his own government and has done little or nothing to improve our foreign relations with dangerous countries.
He is the one that uses the race card in defense of his actions and words on a consistent basis. He has appointed or hired more blacks that have little or no background or training in their appointed functions.
As I have said before, many times, black, white or purple...the man is not good for this country and is a dishonest, devious, charlatan that will say or do whatever he thinks it will take to further his cause, enhance his imagined legacy or his and his Party’s election opportunities.
Did your deductible go up? Did your out-of-pocket cap change? Is this coverage furnished by your employer or union? If so, just hang on, after the mid-term elections are out of the way, all those policies will be forced to change as well. Is your additional cost subsidized by taxpayers because your union got a kick back for supporting Obama?
“And it is time for those who talk about family values to start valuing families.” – John Kerry
And how does any liberal make that claim while supporting abortion on demand?
It is becoming a toss up to his 'If you like your insurance and your doctor you can keep them. Period!'
The debt comment was just his version of 'say anything to get elected' politics. The second was just a flat out lie that he and many on his staff knew at the time was just plain not true. He lies and doesn't even blanche at the outcry over his lies. He sees them as a tool to get what he wants, when he wants it.
TWO IRONIES !!!!!!!!
We are told NOT TO judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics." BUT on the other hand. "We are also encouraged TO judge ALL Gun Owners by the actions of a few lunatics."
How is that supposed to work.....??????
The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing this year the greatest amount of free Meals and Food Stamps ever, to 47.5 million people as of the most recent figures available in April 2013.
Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us "Please Do Not Feed the Animals."
Their stated reason for the policy is because "The animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."
Thus ends today's two lessons in irony.
