There is only one thing worse then being unemployed for a long period of time. When you are hired by two different companies and they take the federal tax credit for hiring someone unemployed but then give that person no hours. Socialism for the rich, capitalism for the poor.
- from USA Today Article abut the 90 million who make a choice against voting that didn't link: """""""The survey identified one extremely persuasive argument. Among Obama supporters, 85% say they would go to the polls if they knew their vote would help swing a close election to the president; 70% of Romney supporters say the same for their candidate."""""""""""""""""
- ""In fact, if this bill were passed and the Supreme Court upheld it, I'll bet that a rapist could go to court and sue to prevent his victim from getting an abortion. He'd argue that the fetus was legally a human being, and the court has no power to discriminate between one human being and another. He'd probably win, too."""""
- saw one this morning---NorCal in play!""""""" And the next attack on Obama: The Koch-founded Americans for Prosperity rolls out a new $7 million ad campaign in multiple swing states, featuring former Obama supporters concluding, more in sorrow than in anger, that they’ve concluded he hasn’t earned a second term.
Keep an eye on this one. It’s the emerging GOP tactic for dealing with Obama’s personal popularity: We didn’t want Obama to fail; we shared his high hopes for his presidency; but..."""""
- """""""Two points: 1) Far from suppressing coverage of Mitt Romney’s proposals, the media have been asking for more details, more substance, on them; 2) Palin is entitled to her impression of how the media treatObama. And so is the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism, which this past spring released a systematic study of coverage of the candidates. One sentence therefrom: “Of all the presidential candidates studied in this report, only one figure did not have a single week in 2012 when positive coverage exceeded negative coverage—the incumbent, Democrat Barack Obama.” """"""""""
- """"""And then the obvious finally hit me: the Romney campaign is reviving the single oldest tactic of southern reactionaries: race-baiting white working class voters to distract them from the many issues on which this segment of the electorate is naturally unsympathetic to policies that reinforce economic and social privilege. It’s how the Bourbons reasserted control over the Populists in the late nineteenth century. It’s how conservatives undermined southern support for the economic policies of the New Deal and Fair Deal and New Frontier and Great Society. It was ultimately the fulcrum for the realignment of the whole region from the Democratic to the Republican Party.
So it’s a familiar tactic, but what makes it novel is that it is not being narrow-cast into North Carolina or Virginia or northern and western Florida or Missouri, but broadcast everywhere. And there is zero way it can be rationalized as a part of an overall GOP message supposedly focused on economic recovery and job creation—or even, given the ridiculously small quantities of federal money that go to the Temporary Aid to Needy Families (TANF) program, as part of a budget austerity message. It’s a flat-out racial appeal aimed at convincing non-college educated white voters that this black president wants to take their tax dollars to give them to his shiftless black brothers and sisters. """""""
- """""""""""There is nothing for it now but than to say, flat-out, that Willard Romney has decided that the only way he can become president is to become a racist and to appeal to the racist base of his party. This is the second ad in as many weeks centered on the general theme of The Negro President Wants To Give Your Money To The Black People Like Him...."""""""
- """What many people don’t realize is that outlawing Shariah is akin to outlawing the Ten Commandments, Talmudic law or the gospels of Jesus Christ. Shariah is a moral imperative for all Muslims and defining it as a threat is equivalent to deeming all observant Muslims a danger to society. To ban Shariah is to ban the Muslim religion and harshly strip several million taxpaying Americans of their first amendment rights""""""
- """""""But the chain analogy is used relatively often by members of both parties.
Rick Santorum invoked chains last summer to warned Iowa voters that health care reform would lull citizens into government dependency. “They will put you in chains called ‘Obamacare,’ and you will never break away,” Santorum said.
Florida Rep. Allen West went a step further, likening Obama’s programs to slavery. “He does not want you to have the self-esteem of getting up and earning and having that title of American,” West said in July. “He’d rather you be his slave.”
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, refused to condemn West’s comments at the time, but he tweeted his disapproval of Biden’s remark Tuesday.
The Obama campaign does not believe the comments were out of line. “Bottom line is that we have no problem with those comments,” Stephanie Cutter, deputy campaign manager for the Obama campaign, said on MSNBC Tuesday afternoon. """"""""""

I heard today that the Government has a contract with an outside country that is over our voting machines. I think it is Spain.
Someone check this out They will be in charge of counting our votes. if they want the contract they could arrange for Obama to win? This is a scary thing. I wonder if this country also was in charge of Putin winning in Russia. I would like to think that we take care of our own voting machines and count. Ask the government about this. This is scary, that way Obama can win. This reminds me of a James Bond movie.-----
