    I CANT TAKE IT:: Pres. Obama met with Al Sharpton to sell his tax scheme…Al Sharpton, who keeps getting leins on his assets because he doesnt pay his taxes…Al Sharpton has never paid his taxes, he gets his followers to pay them and all fines…Al Sharpton who owes big money for campaign improprieties….please Lord, who writes these comic books??

    Obama Wants Unilateral Power To Raise Debt Ceiling

    Can’t fix stupid.

    That mechanism, designed by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., requires the president to notify Congress of the need to lift the debt ceiling and request an increase in the borrowing cap. The request would not require congressional approval, but Congress could pass a resolution to disapprove the increase and the president could veto any such move.

    “It gives the president of the United States unilateral power to raise the limit on the federal credit card, the so-called debt ceiling, whenever he wants, for as much as he wants,” McConnell said.

    370k New Jobless Claims; Gallup Reports Unemployment Jump to 8.3%

    Meanwhile, Gallup is reporting that unemployment spiked last month from 7.0% to 7.8%. Adjusted seasonally, the rate is 8.3%. This is the sharpest one-month increase Gallup’s seen in two years:

    Billhilly this once again proves that the MESSDNC watchers dont have a clue of what is REALLY going on. WHY? Because MESSDNC just doesnt talk about it! That is why Solyndra, Fast and Furious, Bengazi and the likes are “no big deal” to these loons. They dont know any better!

    To go along with you cant fix stupid……………stupid in, stupid out! :lol:

  • Doug Z

    Perhaps President Obama should invite Maddow, Sharpton, and O’Donnell back to the WH for consulation on how to reduce unemployment? I’m sure their advice on the Fiscal Cliff was most illuminating. Or where they really at the WH to get marching orders for the next propoganda campaign!? Sieg Heil mein Fuhrer!!!

    When Your World Comes Crashing Down

    You’re told – You’re NO LONGER NEEDED, YOU’RE BEING LET GO!
    In other words: You’ve just been fired from your job. A job you worked so hard to get, a job you invested money in through a college degree to acquire. So your loss is multiplied many times over through what you’ve given over to work for your employer.

    You walk in the front door of your home and look into your wife’s face, and she instantly knows because your face to her is an open book. She knows you’ve lost your job.
    Her first thoughts are of the children, how will they be fed, what will happen to their shelter their happy home, who will pay the bills that are never ending? Yet she automatically knows for everyones concern, she must bolster your confidence and come to your defence, to empower you to get out and back into the game. She needs your strength, yet she’s running on overtime, using up all of hers to keep some calm in the household storm, so as not to affect the kids.

    You’re now out on the street, applying everywhere you think best, you’re writing resumes until your wrist is so sore your pen and keyboard are no more than a further extension of your hand, you’re tired as your clothes are wearing thin and your shoes are in need of new soles.
    You’ve nearly had it, when more bad news happens, your house is being foreclosed, your wife, who’s been patient for so long, has had it with the dire straits the family’s been in, she plans on lightening your load by moving back in with her mother taking the kids with her.
    All the while your becoming more and more deflated by all of the events taking place. You believe some alcohol or drugs will ease the pain, but it only makes matters worse.

    You’ve now lost your car, you’re behind on all of your payments, the credit card companies are hounding and chasing you, you’re in more debt than the cost of your tuition fees, you are going under and falling into deep despair. The whole country is going through the same turmoil, and everyday more and more people are looking for the same jobs you’re now willing to take. Your life’s upside down and it appears as if no one is doing anything to create a prosperous atmosphere, so you look to your President to change things for the better, and where is he?

    He’s out on the Golf Course, on vacation, spending over $4,000,000.00 to enjoy himself from all of his hard work, which was doing nothing other than making a few speeches and moving his jaws to a set of TelePrompTers, a definite strain on his neck. Making promises upon promises of a hope and change that’ll never happen or ever take place under his leadership.

    You’re over the ledge and now Washington wants to tell you all about their problems.
    They want to talk to you about their going over the cliff, when you’ve already fallen over yours. It’s time for a Revolutionary change when you who are down on your luck and knees area being played for fools by your political leaders. It’s time America took stock of who’s running the shop.

    And some of yo guys are questioning Hannity and Oreilly?????? :shock: :lol:

    Chris Matthews: Bill Clinton Is the Best Person to Help Get You Into Heaven

    Chris Matthews’ affinity for Bill Clinton is well known. But on Wednesday’s Hardball, Mathews argued that the Democrat would be the best lobbyist to get one into heaven. Talking to journalist Joe Klein and GOP strategist David Winston, Matthews lauded the former president’s campaigning for Barack Obama.

    The liberal host enthused, “…I have to tell you, who would you rather have make your case to Saint Peter than this guy?” Clinton, of course, was accused of rape by Juanita Broaddrick, of sexual assault by Kathleen Willey and by Paula Jones of exposing himself.

    Bill Clinton: a silver-tongued devil – a devil is a devil – will get you into a place where you’ll be required to share someone else’s pain. I don’t think such a place is “Heaven”. :lol:

    @ AppleStinx
    You are the master of getting to the point!! :)

    In case you guys missed it, here’s the classic showdown that happened between Hannity and Coulter.

    Gallup???

    Didn’t you guys learn your lesson? Gallup and Rasmussen are no longer legitimate pollster. They failed horribly once again.

    Nice to see Harry Reid working so hard to get a bill passed that allows members to bring food into the congressional auditorium so they can eat and watch Lincoln. First off, what the heck are they doing spending our time and money watching movies and why do they have a viewing room for which to watch movies. Back to my idea of cameras on everyone of those politicians to make sure they are doing the work of the people. Are they for real with this crap!

    What’s the problem? It’s not like they have anything IMPORTANT to work on! :shock: :twisted:

    Oye! I managed to negotiate 2 deals, resolve an Earnest Money Dispute, close 2 deals, keep another deal from going off the rails and this was all within this week. Add on top of that, run a construction business and a family in my spare time. And these losers get time to watch movies, take trips and vacations, play golf and yuck it up at functions and galas. I’m not the only one getting it done, so are every other hard working American and Small Business owner. What gives these guys the idea that their way of working doesn’t work. I’m embarrassed for these losers.

    And Cathy is correct, if it was Cathy that stated it. Big Corps are in the bag with whoever is in power. They don’t care about the small S-Corp businesses that have to compete with the same rules and without the resources to utilize the tax loopholes they so enjoy.

  • cathy

    Thanks Moncon it was me.

    But don’t you know it would be inhumane to make the senate watch a movie for free (which we the people have to buy a $7 – $10 ticket to see) without allowing them to eat popcorn, candy and have a soda. (smile)

    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/07/us/politics/jim-demint-to-leave-senate-to-run-heritage-foundation.html?_r=0

    WASHINGTON — Senator Jim DeMint, the conservative Republican from South Carolina who helped ignite the Tea Party movement, will leave the Senate to become president of the Heritage Foundation, a conservative research group.

    Mr. DeMint — who has fashioned himself into a bit of a kingmaker for conservative Republicans, often at the expense of his own Republican colleagues — now finds himself with a comfortable and well-paying perch that will provide a platform to continue his efforts to push the Republican Party to the right.
