Topic: Serious Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election

“Even worse, President Barack Obama and his administration seem to view budgeting as just one more political maneuver. His efforts have been so completely unserious that the President’s 2012 budget was rejected by a vote of 97-0 in the Senate. And three weeks ago, when Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-South Carolina, sponsored a budget proposal based on Obama’s 2013 budget plan, it lost in the House by a vote of 414-0.

That’s right, not a single member of Congress cast a vote in favor of Obama’s last two budgets. That is a stunning repudiation of his leadership. What it really represents is a total abdication of leadership.

Democrats in the Senate have all the votes they need to pass a real budget and show the American people their plan for today and the future. But they refuse, because they don’t want to be held accountable. They would rather cut backroom deals that hide the details of their plans, and then take political pot shots at Republicans who have had the courage to produce and vote for a serious budget."

Also, I like how you avoided the real point of the post… the first part. Because you know it’s 100% true. THAT is what is wrong with this country. We let the media pick and choose what WE are supposed to accept and agree with. The media are hypocrites see here

It’s important to also note that the same people calling this intolerant are boycotting which in itself is a show of intolerance. Just sayin’.

Owner of Chick Fil A is a highly religious man. Chick Fil A restaurants are closed on Sun so that employees can worship as they so choose on that day. Can you fault a man because of his beliefs? We are a FREE country so how he runs his business is his business and if his business falters because of his religious beliefs then so be it, as long as he has a choice to do what he believes is right in his own views. It hurts no one. Don’t like his store policies, go to Micky D’s for your chicken sandwich.

I guarantee you that if this was a Muslim owned, or a Black owned business NO ONE would be saying a word, wouldn’t have even made the news. So, why are we not protesting Muslim owned businesses that do not carry our same beliefs? Because we would be labeled RACISTS and anti-Muslim by the ACLU and LULAC.

It’s EASY to target a white, christian owned business and not get labeled a racist or anti w/e. Chick-fli-A has made it KNOWN since they were first opened they carried heavy Christian beliefs, so why a big deal now?

I’m also surprised the token President hasn’t weighed in on this issue yet…

Topic: Serious Discussion / Supreme Court Decision on Obama's Health Care Law

IF only some of the Liberals were as smart as they think they are… Congress exempted themselves that is how great this plan is.

My only “rant” with it (so far) is that it puts our health care in the hands of a group of politicians that have a 13% job approval with the American people. I haven’t looked into ObamaCare anymore than the average American, nor do I need to. All you need to know is who will be running it. It’s literally insane to think that this Government program will be any different than the others.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Supreme Court Decision on Obama's Health Care Law

The people who are getting the free stuff don’t like the folks who are paying for the free stuff, because the folks who are paying for the free stuff can no longer afford to pay for both the free stuff and their own stuff.

And, the folks who are paying for the free stuff want the free stuff to stop.

And the folks who are getting the free stuff want even more free stuff on top of the free stuff they are already getting!

Now… the people who are forcing the people who pay for the free stuff have told the people who are RECEIVING the free stuff that the people who are PAYING for the free stuff are being mean, prejudiced, and racist.

So… the people who are GETTING the free stuff have been convinced they need to hate the people who are paying for the free stuff by the people who are forcing some people to pay for their free stuff and giving them the free stuff in the first place.

We have let the free stuff giving go on for so long that there are now more people getting free stuff than paying for the free stuff.

Now understand this. All great democracies have committed financial suicide somewhere between 200 and 250 years after being founded. The reason?

The voters figured out they could vote themselves money from the treasury by electing people who promised to give them money from the treasury in exchange for electing them.

The United States officially became a Republic in 1776, 236 years ago. The number of people now getting free stuff outnumbers the people paying for the free stuff. We have one chance to change that in 2012. Failure to change that spells the end of the United States as we know it, especially if the present administration gets it way and gives illegals aliens the right to vote.

If you don’t believe this can happen look at Greece and the election that just took place in France . Now France is a Socialist Country with a 75% tax rate on those that PAY for free stuff .

Government subsidized Health Care has failed in Europe and Canada. Many current employers will drop their (and your) current health insurance as it stands because it will be cheaper for them to pay a “fine” to the Feds rather than the health benefits for the employee. There fore, all of you (who actually work for a living) will be forced to buy insurance from the government or you will be “fined”. On top of all this, this current “regime” gave out 80 Billion dollars last year in Food Stamps, or free hand outs (which have zero acountability as to what these food stamps actyually bought). We need to rally now, or the United States of America as we knew it is gone. This unfortunate (and probably corrupt) vote today by Roberts is history in the making, unless we can repeal it. In 2009, Obama stated publicly that the Heath Care Bill will not include tax dollars, yet the reason the bill passed today was because of a tax loop hole?

If Obama wins this November, I wouldn’t be surprised if we didn’t have a civil war within a year or two after.

Topic: Serious Discussion / What's Your Political Party?

Liberals to me are the lesser evil.

Obama can’t fix this mess and it is easy to blame others so he does the blame game and now he has played the Race card, so what else is new? And Obama shows a NET LOSS of jobs of 1.4 MILLION. ENJOY that fact.

Bush was awful, but OBAMA has been an enormous let down. Only the minions that still hope he walks on water would disagree.

When Obama comes in and tells you he can fix it in three years, that’s his word. He wasn’t an outsider; he was a senator. He knew how bad things were. He had plenty of advisement. Bottom line is Bush handed over a bad situation and Obama has made it worse.

If the RICH would SPEND instead of HOARDING it we would do FINE! $15,000,000,000,000 didn’t just evaporate its here some where and they are NOT going to spend it now because they are afraid and DO NOT TRUST Obama. Simple as that. So the choice is, either we vote for Romney and regain the trust and confidence of those who can help FIX the problem… OR we vote for Obama and see ANOTHER 4 years of stagnation in the economy.

How can anyone say anybody’s to blame when the basic reason this all happened has not been exposed to most people. George Bush didn’t create the mess… he was involved on the fringe of so-called fixing it. This current president doesn’t have a clue. Almost a trillion in wastes stimulus… basically over $300,000 per job. Most of this mess can go way back to Jimmy Carter and his failed policies. But let’s play pretend and blame conservatives for liberal problems.

You can ALSO thank Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Congress for blowing Social Security too. Because BEFORE that, Social Security was in a SEPERATE account… but they put it in the General Fund which allowed Congress to draw from it and put IOUs in there.

Obama has created some job growth, but how many greeters does WalMart need? How many order takers does McDonalds need to work their Drive-Thru?

Obama spent nearly a trillion dollars on a stimulus that was to keep unemployment from going above 8%. Did that work? No. Three years later the real number is closer to 15%, and it was to be 6% by now.

Where are those ‘shovel-ready & ’green’ jobs? The dollars to the ‘green’ industry largely went to reward Obama’s campaign donors in a manner that smacked of corruption.

Thanks to Obama’s failed policies, we have higher unemployment, higher poverty, higher food stamp usage, and the workforce continues to shrink.

GM could have survived by allowing them to declare Chapter 11, reorganize, renegotiate their unreasonable contracts, and reemerge more lean. Instead the bondholders & stockholders were robbed in an effort to reward the UAW for its campaign support. Killing Bin Laden was good, but pretending that nobody else would have made the same call is laughable.

Topic: Serious Discussion / President Obama: American Jobs Act

5. Try to provide respected sources whenever you’re asked to justify a claim. Quoting a journal by the friend of a scientist (alternatively, Ducklette) saying oranges are blue does not make it true.

Which is why this board sucks ass. No one needs to actually think, if it’s not posted on the internet it must not be true!

This wouldn’t force companies to hire someone. It doesn’t say “YOU HAVE TO HIRE JOBLESS PEOPLE OR ELSE!!!”

Actually it does, because if the company didn’t hire someone what is the persons next step? FILE A LAWSUIT!

What it does say is that posting an ad for a position and saying outright “no jobless applicants for any reason” is unfairly discriminating against an applicant that could very well have been laid off by no fault of their own.

When have YOU or anyone else EVER see an ad that said, “no jobless applicants for any reason”?

It says that companies that refuse to consider an applicant that is currently unemployed, whatever the reason for their unemployment, is basically not helping the economy since a lot of those jobless individuals are perfectly fine, healthy, qualified folks that just got caught in the economic downturn.

That would have to be proven, which it can’t be because you can’t read peoples minds. But apparenly that wouldn’t matter because all you would have to do is FILE A LAWSUIT saying you were discriminated against and the games will begin!

To automatically exclude them from any hiring is not only ridiculous, but borderline discriminatory.

I said it would CAUSE companies to halt hiring for fear of a lawsuit. Anyone who lives in America knows that the proposal Obama made would only bring out the most upstanding citizens who honestly feel they were “discriminated” against… I wish there were an eye rolling icon on here.

As for your affirmative action comments:

Someone mentioned it up there, I commented and related it to Obamas “lawsuit” proposal as in it is a mistake. Who is this proposal geared twards and who will be filing the most lawsuits? Just like affirmative action, I rest my case.

In summary, you DID NOT give your opinion on how this will HELP the unemployed, but yet you did a real good job of side stepping and dancing around comments!

Next; a quick lesson.
Burden of Proof
See, since one of you made claims that “the existence of welfare means people won’t work”, to wit, I asked for a citation proving as much. None was ever provided. The burden of proof is on the person making the claim. That would be you guys, not me. There is no reason for me to prove your argument for you, since that is YOUR job.

I see you haven’t changed a bit, still on the “proof” kick, I wish people on this board would think a little bit more and stop yelling “proof” when they have nothing to contribute. What he/she should have said is, welfare gives people a “reason” to stay unemployed, see soft sometimes you have to think a little bit and be aware of the real world happenings. The Welfare systems are abused whether there is a “proof” link to support or not. You’re an older guy this should be KNOWN by now unless you live a sheltered life.

Oh, and San Antonio; way to miss the point there, guy.
Like, COMPLETELY. Wow.

Why FORCE companies to hire someone who is clearly NOT qualified due to threat of a possible lawsuit? What is there to miss? Please by all means “school” me with your intellect and show me how this can be spun into a positive and fix the jobless problem? All it does is make people think filing a lawsuit is the solution every time someone doesn’t get their way, not just with the jobless but Americans as a whole.

The idea would be, similar to how you can’t refuse to hire someone for being black or female (it just gives women another reason to not work and get out of the kitchen, and get paid anyway, I tell you!), people who were getting discriminated against for being jobless would still have to be hired.

That is a completely different subject and as I have said many times before, affirmative action was the stupidest thing that happened in this country. Me being Hispanic find it more offensive than helpful, basically saying I need help getting a job because I can’t qualify for one/get hired on my own? Whatever…

That’s not the point.

I’m sorry but IT IS the point. I never said I agreed 100% with the way he handled the situation but she fought with the school officials, then her mom and her were laying on the ground fighting, so yeah the cop had no reason to believe that she would fight him next.

you don’t body slam her “because she has no manners.”

Never said or implied that so I don’t know where that came from?

Furthermore, Spurs, your reading comprehension sucks, and your police apologist stance does, too.

Maybe you should scroll up a bit; I even laid out my post in easy-to-read bullett points.

I saw your post and you actually made sense and I agreed with it for a change. As far as the apologist stance… what?

Topic: Serious Discussion / Do you feel this is police brutality, or is it justified?

Wow, the replies in here are shocking to say the least. Everyone is focused on what the cop did there seems to be no concern for what the girl was doing/did before and after the cop showed up?

Then we wonder why the youth of America are the way they are, no manners, no common courtesies, and think they don’t have to listen to anyone. Nice!

No one is saying that cops are always the bad guys, but sometimes they clearly are. This case is one such incident, and if you can’t acknowledge this, it probably says more about your own biases than it does about the specific case.

It has nothing to do with bias, but yeah you are right she did absolutely nothing wrong and should have been allowed to just walk away and be left alone…

I believe there was another case like this involving a twenty-something year old man being smashed into a wall by a policeman. Similar to this case, except that the man went into a f***ing coma for God knows how long.

I bet he follows directions from an authority figure next time too…

Again, Rocket, it depends on a matter of degree. If the advertising was found to be pushing too many psychological buttons with full prior knowledge of the effects, and still targeted to that demographic, then there might be a case. It is certainly morally reprehensible beyond all doubt to do so, its whether it is legally so – to deliberately and with malice aforethought push your profit margins at the cost of health.

In a way there could be some parallels drawn to the old marketing campaigns of the tobacco companies. An extreme example being the quiet introduction of nicotine into cigarettes with full and complete knowledge beforehand of its addictive effects, but being unable to resist the lure of the extra advertising hook that would give when the person’s body kept wanting its fix.

So what about people who constantly eat junk food (little debby snacks, chips, candy bars, ice cream) they buy from a grocery store? Should we sue the grocery store too? Same difference.

I love how Americans have fallen into the “let me blame someone else because I’m a stupid asshole and don’t want to take responsibility for my own actions” mentality….

b) Drugs don’t destroy areas.
c) Illegals work for low pay. How very destructive. Also, no one is pro-illegals, though many liberals are for changing the laws regarding immigration.
d) Prostitutes destroy areas by spreading STDs, presumably. This could be fixed by requiring licensing.

How are these illegal children getting in public schools?

I’m sure teachers would be able to pay attention to both if funding was raised.

Apparently, liberals are all upper-class, and conservatives are the oppressed lower class. That’s pretty new.

I’m not sure what that has to do with terrorists, anyway. But I am most certain that the issues in your town are all Obama’s fault, as Obama has been president for twenty years. I have no idea how he got elected for that fifth term, btw.

So that I wouldn’t have to post the same thing in multiple threads I posted in this one. No one thinks for their self, which is why “citation needed” and “where’s the proof” is a common reply to anything that goes against the liberal agenda/thinking.

Everything you posted above must have been attempt to be “funny” and you failed miserably.

The point in what I posted (which you missed) was that the people making the comments about “oh I don’t agree with killing bin Laden on site, he should be tried in a fair trial” or “that is stripping people of their rights” have never experienced any of the problems the are so against.

Anyone who defends or attempts to defend bin Laden for ANY reason, should have to suffer the same fate as he did. There is NO reason what so ever to defend him after what he claims responsibility for doing.

Also, Stalin had an actor who was in all his movies. Osama might have one as well, saying things that sounded bravado-esque, not under orders.

See your reply to this post when he said, “BIN LADEN HIMSELF CLAIMED RESPONSIBILITY” to which you replied, “You don’t know that, you weren’t there” shows a lot about your line of thinking.

Also, I really would have liked to see Bin Laden get a fair trial so we could keep the moral high ground, but hey, he did get caught up in a firefight, and it makes disposing of the body so much easier.

There would be no fair trial no matter where you tried him, not to mention the American tax payers would have to foot the bill, I pay taxes for enough stupid shit already… Also amazingly no one requires proof from Obama that bin Laden is dead, but instead take his word for it.

This whole ‘terrorists aren’t entitled to any right to due process’ thing does not sit well with me, not least because the definition of ‘terrorist’ is so nebulous.

This is why America is going into the shitter. Do-good people are KILLING America with comments like this. The people who make them (most likely upper to middle class) who probably don’t have to live with all the illegals and the gangs/drugs or prostitutes they bring to the areas that they destroy.

They don’t have kids going to school where the teachers have to spend all there time trying to teach english to the illegal children and ignoring english speaking US born children. They don’t have to go to a community hospital and spend hours waiting with hundreds of illegals who are recieving free medical care. If you have money you can live without all of what normal Americans are having to put up with. This is the problem with all our government officials they are shielded from the real world because of money.

I would like Obama to come live in my area for a week. It has been destroyed by illegal mexicans in the last 20 years its not safe to walk the streets. I dont even have a grocery store within 20 miles that they speak english. The parks are full of graffiti and drug dealers. Come live in the real world for a week and they will change their tune (hopefully). My situation is happening to hundreds of communities in the US.

It is easy for someone to criticize when they don’t have to experience what they are being critical of!

I’m simply going to say citation needed.

http://www.thestar.com/news/world/article/984041—bin-laden-remains-given-burial-at-sea?bn=1

Watch the news, THINK FOR YOURSELF AND STOP HAVING TO BE SPOON FED. That’s exactly why Americans are so damn stupid, NO ONE wants to have a though of their own!

There are many possible conclusions you could draw from that information, even assuming it’s true: For example
a) The US government does not want anyone worshipping the body/grave
b) The US government does not want people being angered by seeing photos of the body
c) The US government is currently trying to “interrogate” Osama to find out where other terrorist leaders are, and who is funding him
d) Osama has a will that requires he be buried at sea

These are all conclusions I just made up. There’s no reason you conclusion is correct, or even that Obama even knew about the attack until after it happened.

When Bush killed Saddam everyone in America loved him and he had record ratings. Obama is pulling the same stunt since he would NOT get elected a second term. Bush released pictures, Obama didn’t, so what makes it TRUE for all you people who get off on needing PROOF? Right, Obama is omitted from having to show proof… Don’t worry though, just like his birth certificate he will release the photos AFTER he has them made!

Anyways DONALD TRUMP has my vote!

USA does not need China. They can reopen all of the factories that they send to China.

China fears this.

Actually China doesn’t fear this and the USA (companies, not the USA by the way) won’t bring all the factories back. If they did all the stuff you buy would be 5 – 6 times the current price. Cheap labor over seas keeps the prices down, common sense 101.
