    So do I have a civil right to break the law? I think I will go rob a store and then say it is my civil right and “It is about who we are as a nation. And it goes to the core of our treasured American principle of equal opportunity” After all I don’t have the stuff that I am gonna steal but others do!

    Holder Calls Amnesty a ‘Civil Right’

    During a April 24th speech to the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Attorney General Eric Holder said that creating a “pathway to earned citizenship” was a “civil right.”

    “Creating a pathway to earned citizenship for the 11 million unauthorized immigrants in this country is essential. The way we treat our friends and neighbors who are undocumented – by creating a mechanism for them to earn citizenship and move out of the shadows – transcends the issue of immigration status. This is a matter of civil and human rights. It is about who we are as a nation. And it goes to the core of our treasured American principle of equal opportunity.”

    ‘Round and round they go and who knows when they will stop? Karl Rove and Fox hosts making fools of themselves on election night, thinking the R and R duo were going to win. Gee, you were only off by 5 mill. voters. W. thought he had a ‘mandate’ with 500 more voters. I just love it when Repubs. spin their web. Keep it up b/cause you will lose in ’14 ’16 and beyond. The more strident Repubs. are, the more the general population exits from them; never to return. BBL

    Job Picture Looks Bleak for 2013 College Grads

    THAT’S WHAT THEY GET…for voting for Obama…..

    Pay backs are sure a b!tch….aren’t they. And that’s Obama’s way of paying them back….BEING JOBLESS!!

  • Chriscee

    Obama’s sequester BACKFIRES right back into his FACE. Hope he and Jack Lew are finally satisfied.

    Obama looks damn stupid today.

  • Chriscee

    Obama and his administration protect Islamic Jihad Terrorists at all costs.

    Today we find out…

    Boston suspects closely followed al Qaeda bomb recipes, government doc shows

    Yep..the Obama way…protect his muslim brotherhood at all costs….EVEN AMERICAN LIVES.

    ‘You’re making me blush’: Obama feels the love at Planned Parenthood event

    Obama is an absolute disgusting man not fit to be president.

    In Obama eyes:

    Killing children with guns…..BAD
    Killing children via abo.r.tion…GOOD

    sick..just plain sick.

  • Chriscee

    Obama: I think of the millions of mothers and sisters and daughters that walked through those doors.

    Does he think of the millions of babies being flushed away??

  • Chriscee

    From Laura Ingraham:

    Planned Parenthood performed a record 330,964 abo.rtions in 2011 (from its annual support). Obama should be blushing–IN SHAME.

    Oregano can be burned with a positive effect but sage is touchy.

    Actually burning sage clears out your house of negetivity. Just make sure you open a window.

    Mmmmmm, wonder if there is electronic sage, cuz that would send ate ate ate scampering like a peek, sneak or hook or any other low level spirital parasite.

    The only thing I remember oregano smells like when it burns is the wacky tobaccy

    President Obama walks into a local bank in Chicago to cash a check. He is surrounded by Secret Service agents. As he approaches the cashier he says, “Good morning Ma’am, could you please cash this check for me?”

    “It would be my pleasure sir. Could you please show me your ID?”

    “Truthfully, I did not bring my ID with me as I didn’t think there was any need to. I am President Barack Obama, the President of the United States of AMERICA !!!!”

    “Yes sir, I know who you are, but with all the regulations and monitoring of the banks because of 9/11, impostors, forgers, money laundering, and bad mortgage underwriting not to mention requirements of the Dodd/Frank legislation, etc., I must insist on seeing ID.”

    “Just ask anyone here at the bank who I am and they will tell you. Everybody knows who I am.”

    “I am sorry Mr. President but these are the bank rules and I must follow them.”

    “I am urging you, please, to cash this check. I need to buy a gift for Michelle for Valentine’s Day”

    “Look Mr. President, here is an example of what we can do. One day, Tiger Woods came into one of our bank branches without ID. To prove he was Tiger Woods he pulled out his putter and made a beautiful shot across the bank into a coffee cup. With that shot we knew him to be Tiger Woods and cashed his check.”
    “Another time, Andre Agassi came into the same place without ID. He pulled out his tennis racquet and made afabulous shot whereas the tennis ball landed in a coffee cup. With that shot we cashed his check.
    So, Mr. President, what can you do to prove that it is you, and only you, as the President of the United States?”

    Obama stands there thinking, and thinking, and finally says, “Honestly, my mind is a total blank…there is nothing that comes to my mind. I can’t think of a single thing. I have absolutely no idea what to do and I don’t have a clue.”

    “Will that be large or small bills, Mr. President?

  • PaulG


    Paul–we borow at today’s interest rates, not tomorrow’s. And would you rather have a depression? Open up the econ book, You sound like a reasonable guy not a right wing kook like Chriscee….once the economy is growing again and the right wingers stop obstructing, money will be POURING into the Treasury and things will be fine….

    I appreciate the response with a reduced amount of animus..I agree growth is the key to our economic future,,but I’m sure we disagree on some of the policies to get us there and with higher growth our days of easy money will be numbered as the Fed incrementally withdraws it’s QE policy..A depression is not a likely outcome,,no matter what the fiscal policy,,as our banks are very well capitalized,,so it seems antithetical to allow the debt to rise above the total output of the entire country for one year,,devouring resources and seriously impeding our ability to spend on critical programs required to accelerate our growth like education,,research and infrastucture..By the way I’ve cracked my share of econ books,,have my degree and now just read to improve as an investor and for enjoyment..

  • Chriscee


    That “blank mind” describes Obama perfectly!!

  • Chriscee

    Obama was warned in 2011 about the Boston bombers and he did nothing.

    All in line with Obama protecting his muslim brothers

    The Obama Broadcasting Network

    Unbelievable: MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts Brings On Three Consecutive Guests To Promote Ab0rtion

    The ongoing trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell has ignited the already contentious ab0rtion debate across this country. Dr. Gosnell is on trial for the murder of four babies and one woman at his ab0rtion clinic, which people have called a “House of Horrors.”

    Given the horrific nature of the crimes Gosnell is accused of committing, one would think MSNBC would discuss this horrific trial in any future discussion on ab0rtion. Unfortunately, if you are Thomas Roberts, such a concept is foreign to you.

    Following a speech by President Obama at the annual Planned Parenthood gala on April 26, Roberts decided to bring on three pro-ab0rtion guests to trash Republicans, yet did not ask any of the guests about the Gosnell trial.

  • Ratboy

    so now it crosses A line not THE line he said would be crossed if they used chemical weapons. What an absolute loser.

    President Barack Obama said that the confirmed use of weapons of mass destruction “crosses a line.”

  • Chriscee

    Again I would love to see the ratings for CNN, FOX and MSNBC between the 9-5 hours of the day
