    Yeah, I've seen that. $.90 of every dollar will be going to China, Japan, Russia, etc.
    I wonder, if Obama's own family survive if he keeps10% of his income.

    Impeach Barrack Hussein Obama for Treason

    The American people deserve a legitimate government - limited to its constitutional authority - and they deserve a justice system willing to uphold those foundational principles and values.

    5 Steps to a better national-socialist health care:

    • beat up the opposition
    • call the other side fascists
    • whip up hysteria
    • criminalize difference of opinion
    • report dissenters to flag@whitehouse.gov

    So freedom of speech is only for the Tea Baggers? And look who gets taken off by the police? Oh yea, the person with difference of opinion. Who did nothing up voice that opinion!
  • Karlen. PRO 5y

    As much as I didn't like what Bush did in his second term, at least he never had in mind to fundamentally change America. The only person that would want to "fundamentally change America" is the one that never liked America. And, how could he if he was OK with 20 years listening to some nut bashing America, another nut that never said sorry for bombing American Federal buildings, another nut, Davis, who was his mentor, that hated America and was a communist and all his nut friends.
    You, Sarita, would never friends like Obama had. By his own admission he had friends that were marxsists, revolutionaries, radicals.
    I have one thing to say. He is the wrong guy and the wrong place. His behavior is exactly how Politburo acted. If you know what Politburo is.
    He is no different than any bolshevik.
    BTW. Their slogan was the same as Obama's and SEIU's: workers of the world united.

    postal, can you think for yourself just once...instead of walking around in an Omama trance?
    I would like to see you get well. I am praying for you.
  • Tony W 5y

    I'm SO upset I think I just might cry! Thanks again for promoting my business...keep up the good work!

    "We're not going to sit down and shut up. Thank you for standing up," Palin said.

    Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department sent officers to patrol the crowd, but aside from a report of fistfight that officers didn't see, the event appeared peaceful. Officer Jay Rivera said there had been no arrests.

    The tea party movement is a far-flung coalition of conservative groups angered by Washington spending, rising taxes and the growth and reach of government. It takes its name from the Boston Tea Party in 1773, when colonists dumped tea off English ships to protest what they considered unfair taxation by the British crown.

    Always some BS story about some mythical attacks against the communist Tea Baggers.

    Here is something we can all enjoy, actual VIDEO of congressman Cleaver getting spit on by a racist, fat scum Tea Bagger PIG!

    www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/03/28/congressman -spit-on-by-...

    Watch that Son of a Bitch smirking after they walk past, so proud of himself for being racist oinkers!!

    Tea Baggers are the scum of this society.
  • Tony W 5y

    Funny how 'you' people love to shove the word 'racist' to the front of the line when people HIGHLY disagree with a socialist scum bag such as our current president. I would love to step in the ring with him or any of his admin...pathetic socialist/marxist scum. And for MY disagreement and complete dissatisfaction with him and his admin I will be labelled as a 'racist.' Those who throw that word around so easily are more likely to be the 'racist.' Pathetic fools.

    And if you are going to quote me dumbpostal then quote me correctly moron.
  • Enigmaa 5y

    gunpostal, bravo, you completely crashed Alien and cplphoto! LOL.They sit and dont know what to say. LOL.
  • Sarita Linda 5y

    Well CPL, if a maggot calls someone who happens to be black a Ni@@er and spits on him, yea that's a racist. No confusion on this is there? If Alien refers to Michelle Obama as a character out of "Planet of the Apes" yea that's racist. I don't think there is any arguement there?! Alien said the Congressmen was not spit on, just showing her the video, you know FACTS!
  • Tony W 5y

    President Dumb Ass doesn't even know WHAT is and WHAT IS NOT in the healthcare bill! He stated that the benefits for children with preconditions will be helped out now...NOT TRUE. Even Axlrod stated the same, so NEITHER one knows!!! Pathetic. It wont actually happen for children until 2014!!! Idiots.

    The fiscal train wreck is happening sooner than we thought, a leading bond market trader says. Which is why investors are now telling the U.S. government it will have to pay more to borrow money. Not as much more as Greece, but enough to constitute a shot across the Obama bow by what we call the bond vigilantes, investors who try to punish governments that splash too much red ink across national ledgers.

    The passage of the health care bill has focussed investor attention on the runaway deficit situation, and its long-term consequences. The deficit, which ran to around 3 percent of GDP in George W. Bush’s final year, is now exceeding 10 percent. (Mercy dictates rounding numbers that are in any event estimates; all data from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office.) Government debt held by the public has gone from 40 percent of GDP when Bush was last in the White House to 63 percent now and will hit 90 percent by 2020. That’s the level at which new studies say debt begins to reduce growth and jobs.

    Unfortunately, the situation is even worse than reported, figures suggest. For one thing, the accounting tricks used to get the health care bill through Congress made it seem a deficit-reducer. It isn’t. Ask this: how can the government increase the number of insured people by 30 million, with half needing annual subsidies of $6,000 per year per family, and lower spending? Answer: it can’t. Most dispassionate observers are estimating that the new law will add $1 trillion to the nation’s $8 trillion debt, and that the government’s unfunded liabilities -- its promises of future pension and other payments -- come to somewhere between $60 trillion and $75 trillion over the next several decades. Even without those obligations, the government now has $14 trillion in liabilities against only $2.7 trillion in assets. Bring in the receivers.

    Well, no. We are not dealing with a private-sector company, but with the U.S. government, which differs from an ordinary company in two crucial ways: it can levy taxes, and it can print money. President Obama knows that. He knows, too, that if he is to pursue his ideological commitment to “transform” America he has to ignore calls for fiscal responsibility, and such roadblocks as the opposition of the vast majority of the American people to his takeover of the health care sector, some 18 percent of the U.S. economy.

    Nothing of 'substance' from you as usual. Typical dribble from one of ho-bo's flock.
  • Tony W 5y

    Our worthless NO balls president bows to another leader...WTF?! The 'president' does NOT bow to anyone! I'm sure the chinese leader had a good laugh about president toothless when he met with the rest of his administration. Pathetic.

    OK, maximus-asscrack, where is YOUR proof that these healthcare benefits start now or ANYTIME before 2014? Provide it or are you just speaking through your ass again?
