In other words, only 7 percent of those polled in the Rasmussen survey would support the Obama administrationís directive to ďgutĒ President Clintonís welfare reform law."

I guess working in concert by telling a bunch of entrepreneurs they didn't build it themselves and easing "work" requirements for welfare, obama is trying to convince people that you can't get anywhere without gov't handouts. And he wonders why our education system fails to produce educated people. In his world, you don't have to exceed or even work for that matter. Uncle Sugar will take care of you. Just call us mini-Greece.
Except that is not what he said, he was clearly referring to roads, bridges and other infrastructure (that you as a businessman did not build)! It is simply pathetic and unconscionable how you right-wing morons are falling all over each other every time Mr. Obama says something that is apparently to hard for you peabrains to comprehend!

SO, you we hear you saying: "blah blah blah blah, race card". Is that about right?
Sorry but most of the country is really past the empty race card thing so let's try to at least stick to facts..... UMMMMK?????
Oh, I know most of the country is beyond race. It's just that you, the Ratz who continues to bait, and the entire crew of you morphing trolls from the GR crew truly ARE bigots and racists. That's why you are forced to re-attire yourselves in new identities after self-destructing with "red dots on foreheads" and "rags on heads" and racial and ethnic insults, coupled with your pride in and support for the self-admitted white separatist and supremacist Gloria/Tally/Monica. Worse, you're scared out of your gourds of what will happen to you when you become the minority. If you live long enough, you'll witness it.

Nothing will happen to you except that more of the people you encounter won't like you, simply because you don't know how to like them - based strictly on the external and superficial. In your limited view of the world, they aren't "Americans" like you. They're all here illegally and to mess up your perfect experience in white world where 97% of the population is white, and you and the neighbors keep trying to get the interlopers to move and stop depressing your property value. Mmmmmmm-k?

I beg to differ. The buisnessmen did indeed build the infrastructure. The very first roads briges and ferrys where built by private buisnessmen and they charged a toll for them. The same as the very first boat docks and Warves on the waterways. The buisnessmen provided the jobs that paid the wages that where taxed to build todays infrastructure. Those whose wages are derived by taxes actually contributed nothing. If your money comes from the goverment that produces nothing. then you parasites never really pay any taxes. The tax you pay is derived from a tax. So its just a recycling of tax dollars robbed from some productive buisnessman or his productive employees wages. Kinda like the parasites getting a dollar for free and paying a 10 cent handlig fee.

according to Marxists and Socialists and umpteen other fringe LEFTY -isms and groups, yea, he would appear to be a centerist to them.
somehow the center has become somewhere between far-left and left-of-center. the new conservative is about center and anything right-of-center is rightwing wacko. being a Constitutionist is just plain nuts (see the many folks that described RP as such).
how many MSNBC pundits, many now openly calling themselves Progressives (a political term not heard pre-Obama), and others, have said that O did NOT go far enough with his HC reform bill, meaning, of course, he let them down by not getting full-blown, single-payer national insurance. to them, he is not only 'right' of them (the new center), he is a Rep-conservative!
another fall-out of an American-Values take-over of the DC pols will be the resulting change of programing on MSNBC (which will probably occur shortly anyway).:) I'll have to stick with the Comedy Channel for my yucks, then.lol

<quoted text> I see the American Dream as only being obtainable when opportunity exists for it to take place, when good public education is available for all, regardless of income level. I don't think hungry infants and children get the nutrition required to reach the best mental development. I only have to look at those parts of the world where hunger is rampant versus developed nations where the mother's prenatal health is valued and nutrition is good.
When I read reports that upward mobility is greater throughout most of Europe than it is here in the U.S., I can't help but be concerned for our children and their futures. I view the polarity of wealth and income inequality, coupled with the segregation of the wealthy from the well-being of our nation as being truly problematic.
Most of your post is nothing more than slanderous mischaracterizations. That seems to be about the best you can do.
here is a little lesson in Nature, maybe u can disprove Natural Law, too.
a rising tide raises all ships, and
an ebbing tide lowers all ships.
for the past 50 yrs, our tide has been going out (out-sourcing, globalization... get it?).
can any one tell me ONE thing our Fed Govt has done to reverse this trend?
I can think of many, many things it has done to either facilitate or excellerate the 'ebbing'. now, it is only natural for the Govt to start preaching fairness. of course, IT is not talking about RAISING every one's standard of living. oh, no, that does NOT concur with an ebbing tide... IT is talking about LOWERING the standard, starting with the amount of wealth the best off of us has. to re-distribute it DOWNWARD to the Middle? NO. to the BOTTOM. which the 'new' Middle will soon become (like the 'new' center, get it?).
Nature is a funny old Bitch... she's not into progressing or changing. her same Laws applied to the former USSR and shall apply to future such societies... where ever they be... even HERE.

<quoted text>How so, Posit? I don't understand what you mean by that, unless you're referring to the fact that pensions are being cut or frozen (some were far too generous), unions have been neutralized, Americans have been displaced in favor of cheaper labor. We're as disposable as used kleenex. The elite would like to shut us up by feeding us fish and blocking us from getting to the lake with our rods and reels in hands - and a shovel for bait. If we make it to the lake, all we'll have is a couple of rocks in our pockets. Good luck catching a fish by skipping one into his head! Well, you never know. Once in a blue moon somebody will get lucky - if they keep throwing rocks in the lake.
The wealthy industrialists have been replaced by the money changers, and they do have lavish homes here and there...and there, etc. Is that what you mean?
What is Romney's plan for fixing it? Will he teach us all how to turn $30,000 into $100 million dollars in a decade with IRAS on steroids? Can he outsource us into a booming economy? Will we all be competing for 1,400 jobs with the Keystone pipeline? Gawd, I hope they pay well, especially for the folks in the midwest who still drive cars to work. Will he send more police into the low income sectors to keep the crazies from preying on and harming everybody who is too hungry to fight back?
Now, I realize that that scenario was pure speculation, but since the man won't get specific and detail his plans for us, my guess is as good as anybody else's, because nobody really know how he thinks he can pull off keeping his promises for the ever evolving and myriad "first day on the job" plans he has - whatever they are. It just depends on who he's speaking before as to what those promises for the first day in office really are. He's like a Cracker-Jack box. I don't know what the surprise is going to be, but I figure it will be broken before we ever extract it from that little foil lined pouch it comes in.
Still, I know that some of you would be exquisitely relieved that a white man sits in the Oval office, regardless of how bad you get screwed or how little of consequence it means to improving your lot in life.
And there it is, the 'race card'. I wondered how long it would take you until you tried to use it. Getting desperate now?

<quoted text>Why don't you expand your horizons and look at the global economic picture. Don't forget to understand that the Republicans promise their base that they'll "take care of them" and just sit tight - don't move 'til we get there. So? They're parked in neutral waiting for an additional $150,000 to spend. That has absolutely NOTHING to do with you, aside from the fact that maybe the plant where you work will be outsourced, because there is no tax penalty either way if you take it off shore and repatriate it at your convenience. Romney says so. Another "day one" task.
No summer will be the summer of our recovery until we get busy educating our children again, including the ones who weren't born to mommies and daddies with trust fund bestowals to pay for their college education and a beamer.
Well, since you played the race card, I'm going to trump you.

Personally I'm sick of trying to educate half-breeds, jbies, and illegals, who don't give a shit about an education. They all want to be rappers, hookers, pimps, and dope dealers anyway. Waste of taxpayers money.

UH, I'm a registered Ind. but will NEVER vote for a democrat like obama, reid, pelosi and a whole host of others. There are a few D's that I actually do agree with on some issues, but they are rare. Not saying I'll vote GOP consistantly either. I'll support the one that is closest to my beliefs. obama's not even on the same planet. Romney wouldn't be my first choice but given the field of candidates for pres, he's the most qualified to run the country better than obama has, comparatively speaking.
consider the choices we have been given in the past Presidential elections... usually just two sides of the same coin. follow that with how each winner performed and u see that they were Progressive and Progressive-lite.
no, our AMERICAN salvation rests where it always has: with the People... in the People's House.
to affect REAL change, we need a TP'er for Speaker as well as MORE TP-type Reps and Sens. look what 40 TP'er Reps did and are doing in this Congress. imagine 100 or 200...

<quoted text>Obama did say those words, but in context, itís clear he was referring to infrastructure:
"If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If youíve got a business, you didnít build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didnít get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.
The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together. There are some things, just like fighting fires, we donít do on our own. I mean, imagine if everybody had their own fire service. That would be a hard way to organize fighting fires.
So we say to ourselves, ever since the founding of this country, you know what, there are some things we do better together. Thatís how we funded the GI Bill. Thatís how we created the middle class. Thatís how we built the Golden Gate Bridge or the Hoover Dam. Thatís how we invented the Internet. Thatís how we sent a man to the moon. We rise or fall together as one nation and as one people, and thatís the reason Iím running for president ó because I still believe in that idea. Youíre not on your own, weíre in this together."
(Continued:)
http://www.care2.com/causes/romney-obama-insu...
here's a little History, American History, lesson. please do try and learn from it...
which came first, the Model T and mass auto production or paved road systems?
or, the Wright brothers invention, the heavier than air, powered aero-plane, or airports?
this notion that somehow the Govt is at the root of Man's achievements is backwards , false and evil. the Govt either facilitates some ONE's idea or IT stiffles it, or, IT waits to co-opt it, like their wealth.
the Govt, Military or otherwise, did NOT invent the Internet. some ONE or group of ONES, came up with the idea. the same with our Mission to the Moon, teflon, Tang, etc...
how does Obama explain the poor, disadvantaged kid struggling for years to 'suddenly' make it? or, explain F Douglas telling Lincoln and others in 1865-70, NOT to give the recently freed Negroes forty acres and a mule... to let them be as other free men and allow them to sink or swim on their own merits. Douglas was preaching AGAINST the Govt handouts ONE-HUNDRED YEARS before they became the norm. I don't remember Dr. King demanding handouts or 'fairness', either. I do believe he was asking for simple, Good Old Fashioned American EQUALITY (like Douglas, before him).
oh, what a difference 50 years and mass-indoctrination makes...

I hate having to spoil your nostalgic nonsense, but we are in the 21 century now, can't tell you how to catch up with the rest of us Bubba you have to figure this one out yourself - sorry! Iíll give you an example to contemplate, when the Govít built the Oakland Bay Bridge in 1936 at cost of $70 Million, commerce between the San Francisco and Oakland increased way beyond expectations, hundreds of new businesses sprouted up on both side of the bay, so there goes you stupid argument right out the window. It should also be mentioned, conservative naysayers like you and your ilk, fought the bridge with tooth and nail claiming it way too expensive and could not be done due to the impact of turbulent waters, gusty winds and earth quakes Ė sorry old man you got your head so far up your smelly arse itís not even funny ...
