    Don’t know if ya all heard highlights of Obama’s affordable health speech to George College in Maryland. Wasn’t sure if the transcript I found was a liberal site, but I wanted to make sure it was not my imagination.

    What a dumb group of students. Obama said he was being truthful, clear, and honest. These students were so dumb they didn’t not catch Obama’s jokes. They laughed at his telling he watched and listened to FOX reports on the issue.

    He told them signing up for the right plan was as easy as going on line and getting airplane ticket and hotel tickets.

    That there were plans that would only cost 100 dollars. He explained this would be less expensive than their cable or cell phone bill. He repeated the cell phone bill.

    He said now women won’t have to may more for insurance (applause).

    Now I’ve never heard of women paying more for insurance, have you?

    It was like lying to 3 year olds. He said a rep in their state dissed his health care as being worse than the law entitled for a slave owner to get back their slave.

    And there was the old my mother, but he did not mention how he didn’t even visit his dying mother as he was to busy while she was in the states, he was in her Indonesia apt with writers block hoping for peace and quiet.

    I’d kind of like every student in school to read his speech so they can see what an in the face liar he. Who would trust their child with him.

  2. I just had an idea.

    President golf kick (thanks Rusty…lol) says he won’t negotiate with the republicans, but I just saw where he’s talked with the greatest sponsor of terror on the planet’s president, and his Secretary of State is negotiating with the same country’s officials.

    Why don’t the republicans just announce that they are going to start a chemical and nuclear weapons program. Then president coke-head will talk, negotiate and give them everything they want. he may even say nice things about them and be seen shaking hands with Ted Cruz. It’s works for North Korea, Iran and Syria…even Al Queada in Afghanistan. I mean, one of his mouthpieces is already calling them terrorists. Damn the difference. At least this way he could be consistent.

  3. THE EARTH WILL END IF THE GOVERNMENT SHUTS DOWN!
    Where have we heard that before? Oh yeah, every time the democrats don’t get what they want.

    Let’s take a look at the last time they made this threat, it was the “Kick-back-to-Voters Bill” also known as the Stimulus Bill:

    “If we don’t move swiftly to put this plan in motion, our economic crisis could become a national catastrophe. Millions of Americans will lose their jobs, their homes, and their health care. Millions more will have to put their dreams on hold.”—(D) Barack Obama

    Let’s take a look at where the money went, and how stupid and disastrous it was to blow money on such things that don’t actually help our economy:

    ~$1 billion for FutureGen in Mattoon, Illinois is the “biggest earmark of all time” for a power plant that may never work.
    ~$15 million for “shovel-ready” repairs to little-used bridges in rural Wisconsin are given priority over widely used bridges that are structurally deficient.
    ~$800,000 for little-used John Murtha Airport in Johnstown, Pennsylvania airport to repave a back-up runway; the ‘Airport for Nobody’ Has Already Received Tens of Millions in Taxpayer dollars.
    ~ $3.4 million for a wildlife “eco-passage” in Florida to take animals safely under a busy roadway.
    ~Nevada non-profit gets $2 million weatherization contract after recently being fired for same type of work.
    ~$1.15 million for installation of a new guard rail for the non-existent Optima Lake in Oklahoma.
    ~Nearly $10 million to renovate an abandoned train station that hasn’t been used in 30 years.
    ~10,000 dead people get stimulus checks, but the Social Security Administration blames a tough deadline.
    ~Town of Union, New York, encouraged to spend a $578,000 grant it did not request for a homelessness problem it claims it does not have.
    ~Universities: $498,000 to study facebook, $233,000 to study how Africans vote, $389,000 to study how much students drink and smoke marijuana, $219,000 study sex patterns of college women, $15,551 to study alcohol and motor functions of mice, $325,394 mating of cactus bugs.
    ~$100,000 to a liberal theater in Minnesota.
    ~$1 million for minority summer jobs programs.

      • $500 million for building and repairing National Institutes of Health facilities in Bethesda, Maryland.
      • $160 million for “paid volunteers” at the Corporation for National and Community Service.
      • $5.5 million for “energy efficiency initiatives” at the Department of Veterans Affairs National Cemetery Administration.
      • $850 million for Amtrak.
      • $100 million for reducing the hazard of lead-based paint.
      • $75 million to construct a “security training” facility for State Department Security officers when they can be trained at existing facilities of other agencies.
      • $110 million to the Farm Service Agency to upgrade computer systems.
      • $200 million in funding for the lease of alternative energy vehicles for use on military installations.
      •Three-fourths of the $680 million spent in Wisconsin was for public sector posts which included teachers, police officers and other government workers

      If you look at this list, it’s basically GOVERNMENT investing in GOVERNMENT. Of course! What did you expect government to do? They have no business training, they are just people who steal money and give to their buddies, who in return give them re-election funds.

      *Maybe the government SHOULD SHUT DOWN. We need a”Holiday from OPPRESSION.” Let’s see if the Republicans can capitalize on the public’s foaming-at-the-mouth hatred of government, and market this situation in their favor. NAH! Just kidding! They will fold like a deck of cards during a tornado, just like they always do!

    in May 1960 when the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) shot down an American U-2 spy plane in Soviet air space and captured its pilot, Francis Gary Powers (1929-77). Confronted with the evidence of his nation’s espionage, President Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890-1969) was forced to admit to the Soviets that the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) had been flying spy missions over the USSR for several years.

    Before the world leaders opened their Paris meeting, the Eisenhower administration took responsibility for the spy flights and admitted that the weather plane explanation was false. But the president’s confession could not save the summit. The U-2 incident had convinced Khrushchev that he could no longer cooperate with Eisenhower, and the Soviet leader walked out of the Paris meeting just hours after it began.

    December 04, 2011.
    Iran’s armed forces have shot down an unmanned U.S. spy plane that violated Iranian airspace along the country’s eastern border, the official IRNA news agency reported Sunday. But a U.S. defense official said there was no indication it was brought down by hostile fire.

    Tehran has focused part of its military strategy on producing drones for reconnaissance and attacking purposes.

    In a hurriedly arranged telephone call, Mr. Obama reached Mr. Rouhani ;

    Obama:

    “Hey buddy ‘ol pal,

    did you happen to find, you know some stuff, that we maybe kind of , like something that flew over your fence?

    boy gosh golly we sure would like it back.”

    Rouhani ;

    “Finders keepers”.

    “Have a nice day,”

    taking his feet off the desk to bow,

    “Thank you,” Mr. Obama replied,

    Blog today;

    Maybe Obama should call the Iranian president to see if he needs the blue prints too!

    Harry Reid has put the blame of the government shutdown on the Tea Party who wanted to embarrass the President.

    How come Harry Reid said everyone would be back in the morning at 9:30? Why 9:30? Why not
    9:00? 9:15? or why not 10:00 Anyone’s guess, why they’ll be back at 9:30 in the morning?
    Did 9:00 to 5:00 change to 9:30 to 5:00. I’m so confused.

    As to the female suspect, one reporter casually ignored the initial yelling and screaming of law enforcement yelling and screaming with pulled arms surrounding the female terrorist, but not shooting the tires out. Then he looked and saw it wasn’t another brawl by lawmakers at the capital.

    Now the news has Obama yelling about it was wrong for Republicans to point or hold guns to to people’s heads. “rah rah rah rah…” So, is this a clue the dead suspect might have attempted a terrorist attack because she couldn’t get through the health care government phone law.

    One persistent reporter aggravated the differing law enforcement won’t call it a terrorist attack
    asked, isn’t it true she is a “Somali descendent?”

    Well, carrying an endangering a baby in the auto does fit the profile.

    Last report is the baby is being kept under high security at a hospital, I guess no reporter has been able to sneak a photo of family members.

    Then I hear that the brave Obama security service, and D.C. Police working around the capital aren’t even getting paid to work. The show host said “oh yes”.
    I thought emergency would still be working and get paid.
