The Obama Administration is planning to allow complete U.S. Federal Government control over ALL individual retirement accounts (401K's) and tax us until death do we part ... evermore! This has now become known as the 'De-Privatization' of America.

Thanks PinkMindy, I have heard of this and think there will be some major riots, but certain Homeland Security and the National Guard is ready for Civil Unrest and "disobedience and unless we are aware, will kill most of us anyway with toxic Montsanto GMO foods and big Pharma drugs, then who needs to pay back?

Thank you PinkMindy...I am so shocked when some people tell me Obama (OH OH OWEBAMA) is ok and they get Mad when I send them some information like this...I can't wait until 2012, I am sure he will be a goner...we need him OUSTED period...so many cuts to my mother Social Security, and probably in just a few years when I should be able to get benefits, they are now so low I would be better off with a shopping cart picking up bottles out of the trash...I certainly DID not Vote for this PERSON and SHOCKED that he is STILL in OFFICE -- sick when I see him on the news - after Japan's devistation - here on the Pacific Coast we were watching the news for information and UGH here comes (Twinkly Toes OH OH) changed channels and he was just all over the place, one station still was reporting the news, while "O" was talking about OIL PRICES...OMG -- GUYS get this Joker out of the USA!!! We are going under water and need scuba gear!

And, What is with the Health Care...got another raise from Blue Cross..now they have ousted me from Heath Insurance at 890/month....That is HIGHWAY ROBBERY! I will be like the illegals that get to go to Emergency and get free help when I am at death's door!

Sorry Pink Mindy -- Ranting, loved Fifth Knights Blog! Thanks!!!

Maybe it's not just a matter of this not being quite the guy you wanted for change, maybe he's got the wrong kind of advisers??? And he's so inundated with advice from all sides, he hasn't got a hope in hell to 'vote' against them? Seems like the American people are 'digging graves' for themselves; it's time they wake up to the real world and start doing something to ensure a better future for themselves by NOT allowing politicians and governments to make life choices on their behalf without them having any say in it!!!

Nothing like taking something out of context such as the clips have. Oh well, even the stupid need something to hold onto since they are the ones [Fascist GOP] who have put us into mulitpul crisis and ending democracy currently. Why not post the entire speech [s] if this is anything worth even watching in the first place which it [they] aren't as just edited bullshit for hyping the stupid to rally ......and to crawl back out from under their rocks or wherever it is they hide each time FACTS not rethoric and edited clips come out showing how they are suppporting the shredding of our democracy.

There is one big problem with Obama Carol D and others...he is thinking more like a Republican/Neocon . ONe would think you folks would be applauding him as he's doing just what you want.....You talk about 2012 like it's going to change anything...it isn't...they've all been bought up by your gods the corporates. Take back what you destroyed...now that is funny Carol D. Obama's not a great choice as he is more Neocon than he is liberal but he's a hell of a lot better than anything the GOP/Neocon side has to offer. There are better choice than either out there and that's who we should all be looking for...not supporting Obama and damn sure not supporting the eggheads on the right ....one thing we do not need is more of the same for those who put us into this crisis that's for certain.

..in addition :-)..The biggest difference between liberal supports and rightwing supporters is that liberals reconize when one of their own isn't working out and we change that a.s.a.p . on our own without the opposition. The right will keep trying to ride a dead horse. Right is too blind to reality ...Bushler showed that ....Would be great if you people would think of the country and not just your political side now and then for a change but you don't...it's like sides at a football game for rightwing supporters...Not about the country some kind of win be it against your own good.which you did show everyone in the 2010 elections that you'd vote against not only your own good but the good of the nation.

By all means please do then...get him the h*ll out of the White House now!!!!!!! And sorry gotta disagree with you because Obama sure is not doing what we want him to but more so what the liberals have been wanting to do and in fact doing ever since Clinton was in office! That is when I can tell you I saw this country going down hill for sure. Bush was not perfect no..but he loved his country which is way more than anybody can say for Obama!!!! If it was up to him you would living under Shariah Law pretty soon!

I tend to doubt this, and urge others to beware of the Karl Rove Swiftboating actions of the republican party. This is just someone's blog. I serched it out, and found nothing.

H Nick H (1826)
Sunday March 20, 2011, 1:01 am
Jay, I agree with you. That is the difference. At least liberals truly look at things, then make decions, rather than have decisons made for them by the ruling party. I am very aware of these attacks without truth or merit. I see it all the time, and am cautious at what I send. This does not mean I agree with everything our president does, but I seek truth. Opinions are OK, as long as they are listed as such.

But over 95% of our media is controlled by republicans, so it is difficult to get the truth. That's why I wstch the BBC and PBS (which republicans want to destroy.. it's another sourch of truth they don't want). And if I could watch Other news sources outside the US, I could get a better picture of what is going on here nationally.

So, spreading gossup like this is not a good idea. And beleive me, I see a lot of it every day. It's disguesting at times, the lies and mis-information that is spread. Just makes me think how desperate republcians are. I miss the republicans I knew a long time ago, that really cared. It's not the same today. Even R Regan would be considered a "liberal" today. It's crazyi!

Perhaps we shall be forced to barter our massive national federal spending debt, as we balance precariously upon the edge of total economic collapse, by selling our ingeniously procured 'CLUNKERS' on the international black-market for real Yen and of course in the final payment of our U.S. toxic debt to China!?!?

*Note: The reason for the currency exchange to Yen is due to the fact that the U.S. Dollar is slowly being removed as being the accepted World Reserve Currency, and if that happens across a majority of nations, then the United States will no longer be legally allowed to indefinitely print more 'new' devalued money!

Question: Has the Obama family taken their 8th or 9th expensive vacation (I have lost count) to the Caribbean as yet???

The following link contains video proof of Obama's intention for the economic conspiracy to seize legal control over all retirement accounts and its inevitable reality to finally wipe out the middle-class of Americans from existence .... in a move to generate economic genocide and slavery.

Which Tea Bagger group does this "person" belong too? If they knew anything they should also know that the House of Representatives does all the money bills and dear one, that is totally controlled by Tea Baggers.
I don't approve of all he does but the House certainly hasn't given him a chance. By the way, it is the Republicans that want to privitize Social Security and do away with Medicare, have even introduced laws that protect child labor, so rant somewhere else. Am really disappointed in Care Two for not vetting this kind of political Swift Boating.

I heard this on the radio, too, but I think its ANOTHER CRAZY LYING RIGHT WING SCHEME...wake up and realize that anti-Obama people will say and do anything.
I have never heard the man call for privitazation of 401Ks, it has always been the Conservative/Republican Corporatist (see Bush Administration) who tried to get Social Security/Medicare to be privatized -- if President Obama has had a problem these past 2 years it has been forgetting his base and working with Republicans too much (otherwise we would have universal health care, would be completely out of Guantanamo, closer to being out of Iraq/Afghanistan, and would have done away with DODA/DOMA/etc long time ago. We would also have comprehensive global warming abatement legislation).
STOP TRYING TO MAKE PRESIDENT OBAMA A LIBERAL-PROGRESSIVE HE IS CLEARLY MUCH MORE A PRAGMATIST AND MODERATE, yes I do think he has too many corporate leanings which makes him the bane of liberals.

Mad Hatter, you apparently,like the majority of the rightwing fascist aren't aware [as with most thing about politics] that Dubya Bush took more vacations...even with two wars going/.katrina/etc. ,than any president ever in history has,so I would go on about what the Obama Family does when it comes to vacations.

Now back to the topic of the thread...one that is one thing only ...make up BULLSHIIT...of the same ol same ol kind we've all come to expect from the brain dead tea bagger/white supremist/skin head fascist supporters.

I will not bother going to more links that probably have edited clips of someone proving nothing just as the one on this thread is saying is proof....Profit of editing and mindless bullshiiiit but that's all it is proof of. Well that and someone knows how to edit a clip of someones speech. How lame this entire article/clip is.

Ok, now you can all go with more diversion tactics from this pointless edited clip that is the topic of this thread,which really is nothing short of laughable at best....Like I said at first above..it was a ROFLMAO kind of meaningless clip for possible Black comedy entertainment only.

It's too bad that some of you missed the opportunity to work together as Americans and instead will allow yourselves to be defined by a political party and have choosen to remain divided mis and uninformed.

It is clear that neither party is working in favor of the American people, only a choosen few of them. Allowing that spirit to continue will have a poor outcome, especially for those that are feeling especially confident their politiical choice, you are not amoung the choosen few. By the time you realize it, it will be too late. The rest will have moved on, leaving you behind, by your own choice,alone and broken.

It doesn't need to be that way, but it will because it is your choice, we still have a choice. Make an effort at choosing well.

http://terry136.wordpress.com/2008/09/10/factcheckory-the-annenberg-foundation-and-barack-obama/

We now have a possible reason why FactCheck seemed to be in Obama’s pocket. Namely, FactCheck’s sugar daddy is a big donor to the anti-Second Amendment folks at the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence.

FactCheck supposedly exists to look beyond a politician’s claims. Ironically, in its analysis of NRA materials on Barack Obama, these so-called “FactCheckers” use the election year campaign rhetoric of a presidential candidate and a verbal claim by one of the most zealous gun control supporters in Congress to refute facts compiled by NRA’s research of vote records and review of legislative language.

There’s another possible explanation behind FactCheck’s positions. Just last year, FactCheck’s primary funding source, the Annenberg Foundation, also gave $50,000 to the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence for “efforts to reduce gun violence by educating the public and by enacting and enforcing regulations governing the gun industry.” Annenberg made a similar grant for $100,000 in 2005. (source)

Regardless of the cause, it’s clear that while FactCheck swoons over a politician’s rhetoric, NRA prefers to look at the more mundane details – like how that politician voted on a bill and what kind of impact that legislation had or may have had on law-abiding gun owners.

As Columbo would say: just one more thing.

The Annenberg Foundation? Doesn’t that sound familiar in the context of Barack Obama? Why, yes it does!

Jae, Nick, Dave, Esther and Jason are tight on. Look at this blog....and that is what it is!! The Right Wing is so prone to believe any Right Wing Propaganda that they ignore everything else.....even facts. Do you remember how all of the Far Right was so concerned about "pulling the plug on Grandma"? Now with the Republican cutting money going to Medicaid, which will actually throw Grandma out of the nursing home, they tend to go right along with the cuts. FOX has set the stage for how to set up a Propaganda Ministry and the other "Right Minded" groupies are joining in. What a sad case of living in a free country and spouting so much misinformation and hate on their own citizens. Instead of trying to sit down with people they disagree with and work out solutions, as have been done for over two hundred years, they are bent on resurrecting the McCarthy era with distortions and lies.

Has any one heard of project censored? Of course you didn't! You don't care! Fox doesn't want you to know.

CNN is liberal!? lo That's why it's headed by about 10 republicans. Blitzer is a raving fascist. Spitzer is a Liberal. He asks the right questions.

Lets look at the PROOF that the fascist bought up most of the media and controls it with 188 board members.

Ignorance is alive and well on Care2 - it's obvious Pink and her kind hated Obama from the start. What you don't make clear is any solutions to problems you have listed. Some don't even exist. You have SS because of a LIBERAL Democrat and it is solvent regardless of what Repugs say - straight out lies, but you are too lazy to look for the truth. You want it spoon fed and to believe like most sheeple that Obama is bad without finding out what he has done. Could be racism mascarading as "concern" that he'll run the country - he is more toward that middle than most Presidents and even tries to work with the other side. Of course he can't please either side. The left wants everything NOW even after it took Bush 8 yrs to ruin the economy and give us a winless war. But still, you want yours and even think you deserve it for being born. If SS is gone when you are old it will be the fault of right wingers and baggers not Obama. You can't have it both ways - supporting Repugs who plan to do away with SS, and the middle class and working poor, deconstruct the educational system so everyone goes to private schools - or at least the poor and rich since the middle class can't afford it. Badmouthing liberals - that's so clever as if you didn't get that from your right wing bigots. Obama is not the BAD boogie man. If you think he's bad wait til you get the Repug you want in office - he will quickly do away with SS, Medicare and Medicaid, hate on gays, and tax the middle class out of existence and keep corporate welfare alive and well. And if you think Repugs will make more jobs - forget it. Repugs support the corporations and top 1% wealthy people but he will cut your taxes so you will have a $200 check to look forward to. And since he probably doesn't believe in evolution or science, we will fall even further behind in medicine (38th and falling now)/health care and he doesn't care if you EVER get health care unless you are already rich. The middle class and working poor are definitely targets of baggers and Repugs. They have been vocal about it. Really self defeating aren't you? Of course you think you are going to be rich "someday" but don't hold your breath. Have you noticed any Republican business or corporation racing to create jobs? You can always go where our jobs are: in India and Mexico. All I see in this thread is pure HATE of Obama based on what? Nothing conrete here. Your arguments are weak - I think you mouth what Beck et all say without researching to see if they have a clue what they are talking about. This country will be what you make it. Your mistake is not being more educated and balanced (like FOX - what a joke). It's all about me, ME, MEEEEE. With this kind of division, we are doomed. When an intelligent president who speaks well, and acts on what he says he'll do (but not at your speed) is a BAD guy, I recognize sheeples who conform instead of thinking for themselves. Just as with Clinton, you won't realize how good you had it, til he's out of office.

Come on people, did you actually go to the page linked in the above? There is a 3 second part of a sentence Obama makes saying something like there are no garauntees for your money invested in the stock market - that" "proof" that he's taking control of our retirement accounts. Give me a break ya'll. That page is an ADVERTISEMENT for gold investing. THe only way you can get to see the 2nd "proof" video is if you order a booklet.

The “danger signal” is the thought process of those who post this sort of bull, not Obama. The issues today for America is our living beyond our means, we lack of fiscal discipline, we seem to not want to pay for what we get through appropriate taxes. Politically we have turned our votes to what the wealthiest lobby thinks best, and we strive for short-term gratification. Studies indicate that if the entire world lived like we do it would take 5 earths to support us. Comes the revolution we will see how it goes.

Thank you, Karen. I remember when the scam came out. They have to recycle them.

Use your brains! Perfect message/plea. The future was supposed to be made bright. Atwater/Reagan started the ruin and some people still buy the lies. Too many to get turned around.

Question:
Boehner said you people have spoken and there will be no tax hikes on the rich and no cuts to oil company welfare ($30billion).

Did you say that? If not, why didn't you call him on it? It's really important.

That is what I was trying to say. Who is telling the truth anymore? I voted for Obama but he has been bought by the corporations to a point I fear. Now we are going into our third war! Wasn't it Obama who was against these wars while he was running for office? What about nuclear power since when was Obama a pro-nuker? Then there is that little problem with cutting taxes for the rich and stealing from the poor actually that is the BIGGEST mistake he made! There was also that healthcare issue his base wanted songle payer once again he sold out to the right and the Corporations.
That is why I don't trust any of them and probably never will. They all go in saying one thing and get bought off by lobbyists and corporations.
The whole Governement needs to be cleaned out. Maybe we people could do a better job. NOT we all have to many differing opinions. In fact the country is pretty much split down the middle on ever issue according to almost all the polls. how are we ever going to get anything done? I don't know but I agree it is very serious and needs to be fixed now and I do not mean just the deficit people need JOBS like yesteryear! Where are the jobs?

What do you think of when you see a highschool kid or a college kid wearing a Che Guevera shirt. Do you think he is smart or do you want to tell him that Che killed millions of his own people. Sibelius is now the top person in Obamacare. Sibelius, who along with Holder and Emanuel wrote books about depopulation. Writing about forced abortions saying that it wouldn't work as well in third world contries because of no Dr at birth. Writing about forced sterilization, saying they should sterilize the women because men would rebel too much. Even suggesting putting sterilants in our drinking water but making sure it didn't affect the animals. There is a video of Bill Gates in a lecture hall saying we have to depopulate the world by billions. He said 'fortunately we can do that with health care and vaccinations. This can all be verified. Read the books. Watch the video on he net. Are these the people you want running America?
There is a video of Gore telling school children that they know more than their parents. A video of the self admitted Van Jones speaking to our children, telling them they no longer have to respect their elders because they are smarter than their parents and Grandparents, making fun of the elders because some of them sometimes have to ask their children for help on the computer. Is this what we want? Self admitted communists speaking to our children?
There is no longer a Dem party. The Progressives have taken it over. They have also infiltrated the Rep party and every aspect of our govt. our schools and colleges, our churches. They consider themselves the "educated elite" and you are "useful idiots". Do you know what Socialism/Communism is? If not then ask yourself why Cubans risk their lifes in rickety boats to flee Cuba for the U.S. When you see one of B.O's appointed people say Mao is one of her favorite people, a man who also killed millions of his own people, what do you think of her statement.
The Progeessives want an open border because they see it as more votes. Not only are we being overrun by illegals from Mexico, terrorists are coming across the border posing as Mexicans. At last count there were thousands of them. The illegals all say they want to come here to work and the American dream. And yet they burn our flag and say we stole their land. (History shows this is not true) La Raza teaches them we stole their land and it is their duty to cross the border and fight in the revolution.
It is your duty to fight against this if you are a true American and love your country. You don't have to love the politicans but love your country and fight for it against all injustices.

Evil can succeed only if good men and women do nothing. So do something! 0.012% of Americans control 50% of the total wealth,and controling the course of the country. Does that constitute a Plutocracy equal to the pre Revolutionary War, minus a coronation and crown?

Mexico is a wealthy country. Their leaders could have created decent paying jobs for their people yrs ago. Instead they chose to let them live in poverty or forced them to cross the border and be exploite by big growers, just to feed their familes. They cost us 5.2 billion a yr. In turn they send billions back to Mexico. We are not only supporting them here, we are Mexico's second highest source of income.Money that they get here but does not go back into our economy. They are not just taking jobs that Americans don't want. They are in constrution, home repair, roofing, and the casinos employ thousands of them. Jobs that any American would take, especially nowadays. And yet with all this plus the terrorists crossing B.O refuses to protect our border. Read up on the NWO. Because that is what this is all leading up to. And America will be a third world country led by a dictator.
Some of you are claiming this article is false. Just someone's blog. I have written many things here and got tired of verivying it for you and started saying look it up. But all I am met with is name calling. No facts. No proof that what I said is wrong. Just you are an uneducated, unintelligent redneck racist that needs medication. I think I covered it all. Don't believe in your politicians. None of them Read their records. Read how they have voted in the past yrs. Don't take their word for anything. Reps or Progressives. I read about all of them. I don't just pass stuff off as being someones blog. I study what I am told by anyone. I listen to both sides. If you don't know by now that B.O hates America, if his not saluting our flag, canceling National Prayer Day, not protecting our country's borders, helping Brazil drill for oil that Soros owns while not allowing drilling here, appointing communist Tsars don't convince you that he should not be running America then all I can say is what will happen to you is worse than anything I could wish on you.

And above all his collusion with the Unions who are killing business and helping bankrupt America is proof that he is not trying to help America. Businesses can no longer afford union worker. Unions started off as s good thing. They quickly were taken over by crooks and became as corrupt as the govt. What some union members don't seem to grasp is that if we let the unions keep their power over people then soon there will be no money and they won't even have a job. We are broke and in debt. We have to stop the fraud and corruption in govt. We send billions of dollars to other countries, even terrorist countries thru U.S aid and charitable donations. Do you see any difference in their poor? Take Haiti for instance. They won't even tell us where all that money went. George Clooney has saved Haiti and moved on to New Zealand. So far he and Sean Penn have not been to Japan, nor were they in Tenn when it flooded or any of the other states that were flooded in the east. I didn't see them complaining about nothing being done about the people suffering in the gulf coast when the oil rig blew up.
Americans are the most charitiable people in the world. And if I see an illegal spreading our flag out and spitting on it and walking on it and trying to tear and burn it I would be in jail or killed because I would cover that flag with my body till one of the other happened.

Life is so expensive and life has so many road blocks it is very difficult for parents to do their job properly and I mean BOTH parents when they have to work six jobs to make ends meet.

My math error in my previous post. Americans controlling 50% of nations wealth is 1.14% = roughly 400 individuals, not 0.012% which would only = 42, sorry. But then again, its close enough for the right to be barely discernable.

If we had No central banking system, (PRIVATELY-OWNED Federal Reserve), we would likely carry No debt from one presidency to another, and we certainly wouldn't be anywhere near 14 Trillion dollars in debt! We need to take back the control of our monetary system, and stop paying interest on our own money!

Good grief. Another idiotic ploy by the right to discredit Obama and make the ignorant more afraid of him, because he is different than them. The hysteria originates, it seems, with a February Department of Labor and Treasury Department request for comments on how 401(k) plans might be encouraged to offer annuities to 401(k) participants and how those participants might be persuaded to convert their 401(k) assets into a stream of lifetime income-in other words, how to put some of their retirement money into annuities.

Why would Obama and many financial experts be for this idea?
1. Annuities are the best way to insure that you don’t outlive your money in retirement. The classic annuity promises a check for life as long as you live;
2. Fixed annuities avoid the shock of stock market losses. The annuity provider promises to keep the checks coming regardless of the market’s ups or downs;
3. By locking up your money, an annuity protects you from grifters who prey on older seniors ;
4. As 401(k) sponsors offer group annuities to their employees, the costs will be lower and the payouts higher than if you bought an individual annuity yourself; and
5. Research shows that retirees who get a portion of their income from annuities are happier than other retirees.

So - NO, this is not a plot to do away with your 401(k) or to take it away from you. It's an idea to encourage people to invest in ANNUITIES instead, which would HELP THE PEOPLE, not WALL STREET. THIS is why the right is against them - because it does not benefit WALL STREET, WHOM THEY REPRESENT. The GOP does not represent YOU. They represent BIG BUSINESS.

The market is subject to ups and downs - this would keep your money stable and GET YOU MORE MONEY when you retire. There is no plot, people. This is another fantasy to scare you.

As for Obama's vacations, don't make me laugh. George Bush was the all-time record holder for the most time off of any president in US history! Obama usually does some work on the last day of his 3-day weekends, and plus he's working on his supposed days off. He is one of the most product, effective Presidents we've ever had. He had made more contributions to Middle Class America in his short time than Bush did in 8 years. In fact, he has created more jobs already than Bush did in 8 years. That's PRIVATE SECTOR jobs, not government jobs.

And he LOWERED YOUR TAXES. FACT: TAXES ARE THE LOWEST NOW SINCE THE 1950s. The GOP is NOT YOUR FRIEND. They openly represent big corporations, and they openly are against the American worker. They were elected to create jobs and fix the economy. What have they done? First of all, they voted to de-fund The Affordable Health Car Act - when Boehner was told that it would ADD to the deficit and cost 700,000 jobs by doing that, he said, "So be it." So, it is NOT about creating jobs or fixing the economy. What else have they done? Declared war on women. The GOP is about less government intrusion into our daily lives, which is theoretically why they oppose the Affordable Health Care Act - unless you have a uterus. Then, it belongs to the government. In state after state, they are proposing legislation to limit women's right to do with their bodies as they choose. Women, apparently, cannot be trusted with their OWN BODIES. Oh, and they also found time to hate on the gays, deny climate change, and re-define rape! Yeah, they have not taken that language out of that bill. They said they would, but they didn't. Rape is still defined as "forcible" so that children victims and date rapes, and drugged rapes don't count as "real rape."

Climate change is a "theory" like gravity is a theory. Suddenly, it's fashionable to deny science and American history! Ignorance is the IN thing to be, in this rightwing fright fest. GOP politicians like Palin and Huckabee actually believe that dinosaurs co-existed with man 6,000 years ago! OMG, these people are STUPID. There isn't even a scientific question about this stuff.

What else have they accomplished? Oh, they attacked American Muslims! Who, by the way, don't even come close to being responsible for most of the terror attacks in this country - those are overwhelmingly committed by rightwing extremist Christians. So all that did was give bin Laden ANOTHER recruiting tool. Fools. Some GOP idiot actually said, "All Muslims are not terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims." OK - all conservatives are not racists, but all racists are conservatives. How do you like that logic now?

Then they attacked Middle Class American workers. Now they attack Child Labor Laws! WAKE UP. They are coming for you, middle class. Don't let them fool you into fearing Obama with these lies and idiotic theories. It's complete hogwash. They won't rest until they take away all the progress we've made in the last 100 years. Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, child labor, 40-hour work week, vacations, holidays, minimum wage, safe working conditions, safe drinking water, clean air to breathe, food safety, education, women's rights, veterans care, civil rights, it's all either under fire now, or it's going to be.

"If you don't know by now that B.O hates America, if his not saluting our flag, canceling National Prayer Day, not protecting our country's borders, helping Brazil drill for oil that Soros owns while not allowing drilling here, appointing communist Tsars don't convince you"

This above Myke is written proof, though your apparently unaware as you write it, of your own ineptitude in evaluating information and your desire to let yourself be led as long as the leader feeds your hate and paranoia. All of it, and this post itself it laughable but not funny as it is evidence of why we can never improve our situation. Minds such as posted this and made the claims above are as a millstone around our necks. Full of mindless hate, hungry for inaccurate claims blaming everyone but the guilty parties.
Pink is fifth-nights minion, he lies and she swears to with a sneer knowing full well, its just hateful, baiting, claptrap. In my opinion there is something sociopathic about it, but I'm not qualified to make that call by degree.

The debt is high. No question about it. But its not our biggest problem. That one is how to get the debt down. And getting it down involves taxing more than cutting in the ready, fire, aim, method being used by the baggers now, but taxing the top 2% oh no. Many here seem to desire a full fledged depression, perhaps because they can't really imagine it. I am a believer in Keynesian economics, which helped lift us out of the first great Depression.

Keynes′ ideas influenced Franklin D. Roosevelt's view that insufficient buying-power caused the Depression. During his presidency, Roosevelt adopted some aspects of Keynesian economics, especially after 1937, when, in the depths of the Depression, the United States suffered from recession yet again following fiscal contraction. But to many the true success of Keynesian policy can be seen at the onset of World War II, which provided a kick to the world economy, removed uncertainty, and forced the rebuilding of destroyed capital. Keynesian ideas became almost official in social-democratic Europe after the war and in the U.S. in the 1960s.

Keynes′ theory suggested that active government policy could be effective in managing the economy. Rather than seeing unbalanced government budgets as wrong, Keynes advocated what has been called countercyclical fiscal policies, that is policies which acted against the tide of the business cycle: deficit spending when a nation's economy suffers from recession or when recovery is long-delayed and unemployment is persistently high—and the suppression of inflation in boom times by either increasing taxes or cutting back on government outlays. He argued that governments should solve problems in the short run rather than waiting for market forces to do it in the long run, because "in the long run, we are all dead."

Perhaps a discussion about the realities of its success make for a better more constructive conversation than the tabloid shouting of libelous rumor that this post entertains.

Marilynn, I'm waiting.... Did you view the "proof video"??? ANY OF YOU THAT ARE SPOUTING THIS CRAP VIEW THE "PROOF", which says NOTHING OF THE KIND?!?!?! If you go back and view the whole speech, he is arguing AGAINST the Repuglicun plan to lose our Social Security in the stock market, there is nothing AT ALL about taking away anybody's IRA. What a LOAD OF CRAP! Carol, I'm ashamed of you too. I had given you credit for having a brain and checking your facts. Sorry I was wrong about that.

We've been waiting for years to continue the conversation. They always scatter like the rats they are. Nothing changes in a cult.

Waiting!

Question:
Boehner said you people have spoken and there will be no tax hikes on the rich and no cuts to oil company welfare ($30billion).

Did you say that? If not, why didn't you call him on it? It's really important.

"Businesses can no longer afford union worker."

And here we are. CEOs with billions and the middle class without a dream. Real cute.

Carole D. , Who are you taking "your" country back from and what are your plans for it when you "get" it. Will YOUR country have any clean water left to drink or be simply under water like most homes are now economically thanks to your buddy Bush. If tax breaks for the rich were the answer and have been in force since Bush, why are we where we are? Where are the jobs? What trickle down? And you know what the Baggers are doing now right? After they got elected? They are pushing one social issue bill after another with an occasional ready, fire, aim, cut to programs and a concerted effort to break unions, and even ruin public broadcasting. Hip hip hooray, everything will be so much better without clear fact based reporting unbiased by Corporate control. But ideas for Job creation. Zip. Just more trickle down or as Bush one called it. Voodoo economics.

There is a vast difference between facts and opinions. Facts are verifiable. Opinions are just subjective and personal. Opinions are like as_ho_s, everyone has one. But this opinion exress here is not fact, and people forget that. I checked to see if it is true, and it's not, but it is an opinion, which is part of our freedoms. Where it crosses the line is when it's spread as some kind of "truth". Therein lies the problem. And so much of what the right wing has to offer is just opinions.

But, I do have a question I would love to get an answer. This is directed to all those who favor republicans (the current batch). Here it is: PLEASE TELL ME AT LEAST ONE LAW THAT REPUBLICANS TRIED TO PASS THAT WOULD ACTUALLY HELP THE MAJORITY OF US CITIZENS......EVEN WITHIN THE LAST 40 YEARS???
Please let me know, I've been serching and haven't found anything to date. And I mean a law that would help just the 98% of Ameicans, not the very rich.

This kind of stuff on here just inflames people, and doesn't improve the situation in America. All along, even repulicans were yelling at Obama that we need jobs. Now that they are in the drivers seat, what have they done to promote jobs here......... I'll answer that one, NOTHING. All they have been doing is going after 4% of our national budget and forgetting the 800 pound gorilla in the room. (and please note, SS and medicare are NOT part of our national budget). Just look at your paychecks for evidence 3 parts are taken out.

Income tax, which goes towards the budget, SS which goes to SS, and Medicar which goes to ........yes, you got it, Medicare.

If you take time to make sure of the facts, then it makes you a better person. Not someone who shouts with passion and says nothing. Enjoy the coming week. WE need jobs!!!!! That's what all of our govenment needs to be working to acomplish.

Marilynn M,

You say,
"Right now with Obama at the head of this Country we have way to much Government CONTROL for my taste!"

On what do you base this assertion? In what way does he have or use his power in ways that others have not? Is there any basis for your statement... or is it a repeated talking point meant to persuade those who are suspicious of government to start with, that Obama is somehow a bigger threat to us somehow and not just a blacker one, while Democrat and with a funny name?

For everyone out there who doesn't know how these things work. Your corporate pension not public pension because public pensions can't be touched by the stock market or investment bankers, but your PRIVATE pensions are put up and gambled on by the same people that your for, the Private investment bankers in this country. They gambled with your retirement and like in the case of the stock market crash we just went through sell your pensions account managers empty assets that were illegally rated as good investments but were essentially junk mortgages. Your pensions holders not the President or the Government but the people you trust to hold onto your money for you took the junk mortgage investments that were falsely rated as good investments and they bought them when the banks new very well that they were worthless. Then when the housing bubble popped and all these pension holders and investing houses were stuck with hollow loans they had nothing to show for it. This was all before the person who you are making stuff up about such as the lie that he is taking over private pension funds which is not only a lie but also illegal and completely impossible to do from his end our President he came in after the fact and saved your pensions by having the fed buy up all those toxic assets that the PRIVATE corporations illegally rated and sold to your pensions managers so that you could still have some pensions instead of none at all, it also prevented a lot of people from loosing their houses even though so many already have. Now to the de-Privatisation of this nation accusation based on nothing but complete ignorance considering the bills that are being introduced all over this country, such as The Bill to remove Child Labor Laws(by a Republican), or how about stripping unions and taxing the poor and giving it to the rich(by Republicans) or how about the bill in Michigan that allows the Governor to deem any public government such as a Mayor or City Hall, or Board of Education in a financial crisis to where he can appoint a Private person not elected by the people to come in and say screw democracy and then supersede and essentially fire all those elected officials and take over said town privately(You guessed it, A REPUBLICAN). All those sound like the Privatisation of America to me. What bill... What single bill has publicised anything? Anything? Not the Healthcare Reform, there is no single payer or public option so it can't be that. The only things that are left that ARE even public is Social Security and Medicare that Republicans are trying to make Private and that's it. So clearly you have no idea what your talking about your just ignorant children who are unhealthy to the point were your soul is blind and your egos have complete control over you body to only express fear and hatred with no logical understanding of the world around you. I pity you and hope that those of us who are really trying to change the world for the better have less of you to come across in our way while pushing for fairness and equality for the REAL freedom of present and future generations.

The right is pushing fear siting the deficit as its catastrophe of the moment, using the shock doctrine in order to impose its Corporate Globalist agenda which is hurting this country they claim to love. These traitors have no nation, they are Capitalists first who simply want a cheep labor pool as they do in China, right here at home. Thats why when you call a help line you get the guy in India. That was not a high paying union job they shipped over seas. It was a low paying job done for even less overseas. The greed knows no bounds and if your paying attention it sends a message. This is not about whats best for America's people.. Its about whats best for Wall Street and the quarterly balance sheet which must always show more profit than the last...at any cost without any other considerations. So we are being sold out. And the agenda now is to take our ability to fight. Not as the right would have us believe, as in they are coming to take our guns, but in killing off the only competition, and so by killing the unions, they get the Democrats. Check and mate. The race to the bottom begins in earnest with Corporate rule in place unchecked, unregulated and endlessly hungry for more. When the people chose the Baggers in this last election, Obama was forced to the right and things have gone so right already that Nixon would today be a moderate Dem. I hope you wingnuts like the world your helping to create with our blind self defeating votes. They have your numbers and when you vote your social issues, you serve the banks and poison your own well. Just sayin.

you people do not seem to remember your history. the debt has nothing to do with a person who has been in office for less than one term. the outrageous debt began with reagan and bush senior and their insatiable lust for invading the countries of latin america and for wasting trillions of dollars on the "star wars" program that was defunct to begin with.

the second increase to the national debt has everything to do with the shrub, bush and war criminals inc, for the invasion of iraq to the tune of 5 billion dollars every month, the cutting of the estate taxes, the tax breaks for the rich, raiding the social security fund and the tax incentives given to multi billion dollar corporations to move their jobs out of the country and the bailouts with absolutely no accountability to where the money was going, of which, by the way, went to ceo's in the form of hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses and purchases of jets.

why in the world would i believe a 2 minute video clip of which i have no idea to what the context of that one little sentence pertains to? do you believe everyone to be that gullible? and then the only way you will watch video #2 for the real proof, is if you fill out your personal information to sign up for their stock advice which is nothing but an advertisement? this is absolute joke! whoever posted this, how much stock do you own in the company who is promoting this bullshit??

I find it hard to believe that people get all up in arms about Obama based on an individual's blog. Where are the factual sources. It seems that if people want to believe something bad about someone, they will do so regardless of facts and that applies not only to those who hate Obama but to those who hated GW Bush. While the internet is a wonderful tool for research and communication, it is also a harmful tool for spreading misinformation and lies.
I do wish we could find a way to get past the extremes, come together and find solutions to the real problems that beset us... not ones that are just made up to distract and divide us. We are a better country than this.

@Robert S.: You are so right about the Shock Doctrine. My son educated me about that and I have read a couple of articles about it. It sounds exactly like what is going on right now with the GOP. It is scary, scary stuff.

I truly do not understand why people are willing to vote for a party that, again and again, has mismanaged the economy, not created jobs, added to the deficit, raised taxes, and done everything in its power to help big money corporations AT THE EXPENSE of Middle Class Working America. Why on EARTH?! do they fall for this crap? It's so illogical, so backwards! Over and over, they say the answer is to cut taxes - and over and over, it fails to work. It didn't work for Reagan, who had to admit defeat and actually raised taxes about 10 times while in office. It didn't work for Bush, look at the huge mess he made by cutting taxes and deregulating everything. Wall Street naturally took advantage of that and screwed our entire economy!

I think it's foolish and crazy to trust corporations by deregulating them. They've already PROVEN that they will, indeed, pollute the air, water, and land. They've already PROVEN that they'll rig the markets and crash the stock market and the entire US economy! They will poison us, as they have in the past. The only thing between us and them is the EPA, which the GOP wants to abolish! What other answer is there except that they serve big money corporations at the expense of the health and welfare of the people of this country? What other reason could they have to speak out against food safety, for godsakes?! Against child labor laws?! What kind of people do you think you're dealing with? They're immoral. It's all part of their plan. I consider the Koch Brothers to be genuinely evil people who are leading the ignorant masses to their own destruction. How jolly!

And these sad people are afraid of Obama, who's fighting for them every day?! They have no concept of who they should be afraid of. If the Teapublicans have their way, we'll go backwards in time 100 years, when nobody had any rights, except for the wealthy. That's certainly the direction they're headed. WAKE UP, FOLKS!

This was shared with me, and I"m doing so here. It's the truth, sadly.

You didn't get mad when over 200,000 US Citizens lost their lives because they had inadequate care and no health insurance.



You didn't get mad when we gave people who had more money than they could spend, the filthy rich, over a trillion dollars in tax breaks.



You didn't get mad when lack of oversight and regulations from the Bush Administration caused US Citizens to lose 12 trillion dollars in investments, retirement, and home values.



You didn't get mad when we didn't catch Bin Laden.



You didn't get mad when Bush rang up 10 trillion dollars in combined budget and current account deficits.



You didn't get mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans, drown.

You didn't get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.



You didn't get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate Energy policy and push us to invade Iraq.



You didn't get mad that at the end of the BUSH presidency we were loosing 750 000 jobs a MONTH ( month of feb. 2011, we gained 200 000 non farm jobs under President Obama. Source: US dept. of labor )



You didn't get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.



You didn't get mad when we spent over 800 billion (and counting) on said illegal war.



You didn't get mad when Bush borrowed more money from foreign sources than the previous 42 Presidents combined.



You didn't get mad when over 10 billion dollars in cash just disappeared in Iraq .



You didn't get mad when you found out we were torturing people!!!!



You didn't get mad when Bush embraced trade and outsourcing policies that shipped 6 million American jobs out of the country.



You didn't get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.



You didn't get mad when as a result of of the reckless BUSH adm. harm done to the country is so massive , we migth never be able to recover from this one...

Politifact.com gave this a "Pants on Fire" http://politifact.com/virginia/statements/2010/dec/03/william-howell/virginia-speaker-william-howell-says-congress-cons/

Instead of standing together to make OUR Country better - you had to rip it to shreds, tear it down with your hate...Great Job, thats whats wrong with America today...Everyone has to be right - no one wants to compromise for the better of Americans - that is the downfall of America......

It's interesting how, if anyone opposes these messages of hate, they're the haters. For example, anyone who disagrees with Sarah Palin or points out what she said was incredibly ignorant is suddenly a Palin-hater. Calling out the lies in this post make us haters.

Well, the Super Full Moon certainly brought out a bumper crop of Lying Lunatic Reich-wing Talking Point Parrot manure spreaders! One, Jackass Joe Blogger spews pure politicking lies and the flies gather for the feast believing every piece that they are fed, no questions ask of facts checked.
GET ONE THING CORRECT YOU LYING MORONS; PRIVATIZATION AND DEREGULATION ARE NOW, ALWAYS HAVE BEEN AND ALWAYS WILL BE THE HOLY GRAIL OF THE REPUGNICAN PARTY BECAUSE PRIVATIZATION AND DEREGULATION PROFIT CORPORATIONS, THE TOP 2%OF AMERICANS WHO OWN AND RUN THEM WHO BUY ELECTIONS FOR REPUGNICANS AND NOW THEIR ILLEGITIMATE CHILDREN THE TEA BAGGED. The Repugs have hated and fought Social Security and Medicare from the beginning because they are designed to help the small people of the lower 98% of Americans. Privatization and deregulation benefit Wall Street and Big Banks as they give both more, of what little they do not already control, of the lower 98%'s money to Gamble with without any of the risk. If they win their bets most of the profits go to them in fees and bonuses and 15-20% go to the unwilling investors, if they lose all of the loss is covered by the losers and the rest of the lower 98% and they still get big salaries and big bonuses, JUST EXACTLY LIKE 2008 WHEN 6+ YEARS OF REPUG DEREGULATION AND PRIVATIZATION WAS GAMBLED AND LOST, THE BANKERS AND WALL STREET GET BAILED OUT, REMEMBER REPUGS HELPED WRITE THE LAW AND A REPUG PRESIDENT SIGNED IT, MAKE HUGE PROFITS AND GREAT BIG BONUSES FOR LOOSING ALL THE MONEY AND FLUSHING THE AMERICAN ECONOMY DOWN THE SEWER.
And now as usual the Repug/Tea Baggers and their lying sycophants are trying to shift the blame on to Obama and the Dems because they are actually trying to clean up the steaming piles of elephant shit and get the economy and American workers working again. And the Repugs are doing everything they can to be sure that nothing gets better because politically they are betting that America and American workers in the crapper are better for their chances in the 2012 elections. Since Eisenhower in the 1950s Repugs have never governed for the majority of Americans or America they only govern for Corporations and the top 2% of Americans that own and run them. Now with Citizens United legalizing the wholesale buying of elections for Corporatist Repug/Tea Bagged politicians and the slimy use of 'disaster capitalism', the fake economic disasters used in MI, MN,OH, IL, etc,they have created the disasters by giving Corporations massive tax cuts red lining surplues and ballooning deficts to make them worse and they are doing everything to benefit corporations and destroy Unions, because under Citizens United only Corporations and Unions are allowed unlimited spending and only Unions spend for Democrats. Nice way to buy a permanent Repugnican Corporatist majorities in legislatures, State and Federal, and in the ALL THE COURTS State and Federal, remember All judges and magistrates are either elected or appointed by those who win elections.
Remember also that in the last 50 years the lying hypocrits of Fiscal Responsiblity have never when in control of Government done anything except increase the size and cost of government and balloon the defict, absolutely never. And in that time the only ones that benefited from their corporatist ideology were the corporations and the top 2%, in the last 50 years the income for the top 2% has increased by 250% and the income for the lower 98% has dropped 20%, under the proposed Repug budget the top 2% will pay essential nothing in taxes and those making between 40-200,000 will pay 23% more in taxes.
Personally, I think you need to go back on your meds, crawl back under your meadow muffins and quit spewing lies and hate for your Corproate masters.

For Example: from Lloyd H "Lying Lunatic Reich-wing Talking Point Parrot manure spreaders! One, Jackass Joe Blogger"......NOW was that necessary b/c once I read that I didnt even bother to read anything else he stated and he could have made a really valid point but ONCE he started with HIS HATE I ingorned it...same as with every other post on this thread - start it out with HATE and IGNORNANCE then it gets ignored and your POINT doesnt get across at all.

Notice ladies and gentlemen how Kat finds a way to avoid addressing all that she opposes by claiming its the fault of others that her head remains firmly in the sand. And if we would just address stupidity nicely, she would listen. Don't believe it for a minute.

Sorry Guys, was not online -- had other IMPORTANT PERSONAL LIFE issues...Now Lisa, Nope haven't had a chance to view your video and Robert S. as far as the Government NOW having more control over the USA it is a fact...

Not until Obama came into power did the Health Insurance get the OVER HAUL and sadly priced those people that were trying to pay for Healh Insurance right out of the Market, as well as small business and some larger Corporations...

Also, Becides Big brother looking over our shoulder and listening into our phone calls, now Obama wants to have total control over the Internet. I do know in the case of a Disaster, No one that has a safe deposit box will anymore -- Locked up (read this awhile back)...so dig a hole in your backyard for what papers you want to keep.

That being said, I was stating my opinion not stating that another person does not have a right to THEIR OWN personal opinion (even if I don't agree with it)....And, I would never try to change someone's MIND into my Way of thinking.

As far as "YOU RIGHT WINGERS, etc" I am not Stating YOU Lefties~~~.

Now, sure if you hate the article I am sure I could look up some of the articles that some of you have written and may agree, but wouldn't tell you YOUR WRONG, YOUR WRONG....

It is so much better to see what is going on...and I will leave it like that!

Robert S you are so far from the truth its sad...laughable actually. I never once said it was the fault of others...

What I am saying is try and talk without insults and maybe just maybe your point will get across to more people.......

I never once said I agree or disagree with what this article is about...I have read both sides and I see both sides and I agree with points from both sides...but points from those opposing the article would be better taken if it wasnt filled with such insults.

NoFwds AwayJae A. - thanks for proving my point...every other word was hate towards the right - you say its not but it sure comes across as such...It comes across that you can't stand to believe anything the right has to say YET those on the right have to lay down and take whatever YOU or those on the left have to say...........oh and I didnt see where you posted any articles against what this thread is about.........so why should I believe your word?

Steven I never once called you or anyone else a hater. I just now was able to read the two articles you provided...Thank You for posting it but when you started off by saying "criminally gullible as Pink Mindy " that makes me not want to read anymore of what you have to say...Insults dont go very far when your trying to get a point across.

I read both and I see both sides - again it comes down to which side you believe...I hope its not true but I guess in a couple of years we will all find out...

Kat, I'm not going to apologize for calling Mindy criminally gullible. Anyone who sits in front of a computer has access to sources to check articles they read. Any responsible person would do so before passing on two-year-old propaganda on behalf of a silver and gold investment firm. I have to call a spade a spade here, and Mindy and anyone else (and I include all the various forms Mindy apparently takes here) are criminally gullible.

Mindy and her worshiper/acolyte Mad Hatter seem to think the facts are abusive, nor are facts considered slander. What you SHOULD be doing is apologizing for passing on false information as though it were true, when that truth content could be easily checked and proven false. What you ought to be doing is learning that lying has consequences, rather than blaming everybody else for your shortcomings.

I'm not sure why all this "noise" over a silly blog. It was poorly constructed, offered no facts and no the videos are not facts, it's one persons opinion. If it was meant to stoke more fires of divisiveness and mutual distrust then it would seem successful. Otherwise, not really worth the effort. Is this meant to lead some where? There is a lot of talk about privatization these days. Sir Robert perhaps to be fair to your reading audience you might go back, explain what 401k's were originally all about, how seriously they have been abused by hedge fund owners and even look at the actual statistics on their overall success. Just saying.....

Yes, there is something going on here. It's called "people believing what they want to believe," even if what they want to believe is fabricated garbage. This ridiculous submission, that you and others have raised to the level of "a wondrous revelation," is a joke. If you weren't able to determine that by the picture that accompanies the article (if it deserve to be called an article), than you might want to think twice about posting comments. You might also want to consider a looser-fitting hat.

Your hate for our President is evident, but if you're going to insult him, you really need to use information that has some basis in fact.

To those who think that Social Security elimination, look no further that he RepubliCONS. They are the ones who want to privatize everything. They are the ones who have given the rich more money at the expense of the working people. O am not thrilled with the performance of Obama, however, I prefer that to McCain and his senility and complete contradiction of what he said only moments earlier. He has voted against the minimum wade increase every time since he was in office claiming that it would mean less jobs, but taking money and giving it to the rich like himself had not made jobs in this country and he even thinks that Ipads are made here and not in China. He also continues to vote against a woman's right to control her own body. And his running mate Sarah. If John had won, she would have made short work of him in a heartbeat and we all saw what a bang up job she did in Alaska, how long do you think she would be in office after really getting the U.S. involved with more wars with Russia over the Georgia dispute and don't forget about Iran and this weekend her bad mouthing the President, fellow repugs and even China?

The repugs have put up roadblocks every step of the way in anything that Obama tries to do. Place the blame where it belongs. At the doorstop of the repugs. And G.W. who ran up this debt and failed to show it on with the real debt, took over 3 1/2 years out of 8 as prez and went on vacation, mostly at his ranch in Crawford. Even after Katrina, G.W. was out on his ranch cutting up sagebrush with a chainsaw. He could have accomplished more by heading out to Louisiana with that chainsaw and started to cut up debris instead.

Yes, this is no doubt the end of the American way of life, but put the real blame where it belongs. To the party that sold us out to the MIC, mega corporations and the privatizing of everything. And for the person paying 890/mt for medical insurance, you can thank G.W. and the repugs who have eliminated almost all the watchdogs and rules and regulations on these companies to do as they please4 and they did.They raised their rates so high most people cannot afford it. Now when the southern politicos get done taking the minimum wage to less than $2 an hour as Mitch McConnell is trying along with all the union busting Rep. Gov's in the past month. Look back in the mirror and you can say, "I did that."

Of course it is....as its the only arguement you have. We however watch and appraise, and factcheck checking cuts both ways therfor making of your arguement a farce and as you say...laughable really.

Kat again, you say, "I agree with points from both sides" The post itself has no sides. It has one point of view, but simply repeats a old and debunked lie. Where it the point of view.
Kindly give an example of each, one side and the other of the points of view, as I call no name here, and give you no excuse to ignore the question. Just one, from each side, or do you make this claim so as to give the impression of fair mindedness where non on your part exists?

That's not it, KAT H. It's the decades long culture of a corporate owned media, the tons of misinformation that promotes fascism and the ongoing culture of lazy people that go along for their ride to hell.
It IS personal. Don't get me wrong. You right winger supporters that don't know right from wrong if it took your wallet, I hold directly responsible for the mess the republicans got us in, along with the fascist politicians you re elected. If any one is coming across with "nasty vile comments", it's because you all deserve every last one of them and more for what you did to us. We've tried to be nicer in the past but those days are long gone. It's time to call you out. Why won't you answer? Because you're all unsure of yourselves. Why? Because you have no idea what's been going on. This is it. You're all on notice. No more mister nice guy. If you don't start caring about the future of the people and their country, we'll have to split the country in half and send you all to live with the fascists.

If anyone would like to view the ACTUAL videotape of President Obama addressing the issue of privatization of Social Security in response to Republican leaders who were pushing to make privatizing Social Security a key part of their legislative agenda if they won a majority in Congress in the fall of 2010, please copy and paste the following link into your browser: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/38704709/ It will take you to MSNBC's website, not the Fifth Knight's blog. While you're on the site, please check out the comments. You'll notice that the hate comng from the right is blatant. Commentors on the right went so far as to collapse comments by those on the left --not because they were offensive or inflammatory-- but because they were true!

To Pink Mindy and Mad Hatter: why would you post this information, when it's an obvious lie? Your names are all over the Fifth Knight's blog site. And you encourage people to spread this lie all over the internet! It's called slander. And it's punishable by law. And Kat H.

I would also like to make a quick comment to Carol, and I will say this publicly, because people might have seen her on my friends list previously, and I want them to know why she is not there anymore. Carol, you stated in of your posts that " there are no good muslims" and maybe you didn't realize that I am one of them. I am really saddened by your lack of logic and integrity as this comes as a total surprise to me. You appeared a fair and compassionate person, and I very much enjoyed communicating with you.

I can now also see why you tried to convince me how bad the unions are for the States; this is propaganda for the form of politics you wish to spread, the racist, warmongering government you unfortunately support, that kills innocent people in the Middle East and elsewhere in the world. Can you really not see that this form of governance will ultmately lead to your own destruction as well?! It 's just a matter of time.

Jason who is "you people"...YOU DONT KNOW ME...Oh and to those who think I watch FOX news making those comments are just plain silly and childish.

Again winning an argument with liberals is when they call you names - so thanks, I'll take my win.

Hello, I just wanted to add, I would love to have given stars to Jae, Jason, Robert, Nick, etc on this thread. However I cannot do so because I have to wait a whole freaking week! My comment follows on from what Sandra has written.

Carol, I thought you were a really nice person especially when you helped me with Dusty’s problem. I t really made me smile and I truly thought you a ‘good old bird’. However, now I know the real you and I find it an absolute disgrace that you could write such a thing. You have truly hurt a wonderful person and someone I call a friend, not a cyber friend, a true friend. You have brought shame on C2 with those words and I cannot fathom the hatred you feel towards a Nation of Human Beings. Your feelings should be towards the asshole governments and the Jihadist/extremists not the good people you decided to address with your hateful words. Life is too short to harbour such hatred .All I can add, is that I hope one day you come to your senses and become an enlightened one, a person that can speak from their heart and of peace in the world and not this vile, insipid hatred. May your soul be enlightened and open to all Humanity after reading these words and by being confronted by your own hateful words...

To everyone here; this is the comment Carol D wrote:

"Radical Islam" Hearings -- The Latest Updates

First of all that Keith Ellison crying jag is the biggest phoniest bunch of BS I have ever seen!! Second of all.. all of these lies about Muslims being good and wanting nothing but goodness to the world is so full of BS it makes my head spin. Do you people really think we are going to believe what you're saying is anything other than a lie!? First off, even ONE death under the name of Islam is too many! It is a contradiction right there that says your religion is all good....notta..nope...zilch...and on top of that if there were Muslims that would outwardly contradict what these Muslims are doing as in killing, beheading, stoning and etc; then it might show some validity to what you are saying. But that don't happen because all Muslims appear to be afraid to go against anything in their Religion that they do not agree with for fear of being killed! The laws/rules that you have in your so called Religion are totally insane!! They are so far from being holy that if you ever ran into holy you would not know what to do! It's all lies and more lies!!! You put women down and right there is shows you discriminate against women. You show no respect towards women and women whether you believe it or not are your EQUALS!! Men are by no mean superior to women!! The fact that the Muslim world wants to take over the world by popping out Muslims like breeding rabbits is proof enough that your so called Religion is in fact not Religion at all but an effort to take over the world!

If anyone recalls, there was another poster here a few years back who posted stuff to the 'fifth knight'. He disappeared about the time "pink Mindy" materialized.

This isn't even 'news'. It's just sensationalized, out-of-context nonsense. Take anyone's words and cut them up out of context, put in some spooky music, and you've got the 'substance' pink mindy spews.

Its not necessary for each to post his or her own individual article/site debunking that posted here. What has been posted here debunking it is enough for fair minded reasonable people. That said, of course its not enough for you Kat.

Post something worth talking about, something true, something not total crap and you may get a different response. People here have had enough of the lying, enough of the evasion, and now your cries for reason while standing perversely, for that, this post, which is unreasonable, mean spirited, baseless, smugly posted by sociopaths full of grinning idiocy, warrants not respect and civil discourse, but disdain and earned contempt.

i guess the thing that kat h does not understand is that the article itself does not have any facts to back up its claim, it's just an opinion with someone trying to sell her something and she bought the goods, lock, stock and barrel. the horrible thing about being a sheep is that they don't realize they are a sheep and they run in flocks. so, the trick for the remainder of us is how do we educate the sheep so that they actually do have the ability to walk out of the hole before they drown in the rain?

Hummm.....Kat H said "...I read over both and commented that I see both sides and it comes down to which side you want to believe"... ...so facts need not be given to back up this piece of Fascist email rethoric 'blog' but facts are wanted to prove it not [rather one sided] ...no matter ''they'' say..one can just go with what they want to believe....Wow is that ever a familiar neocon rightwing message it sounds like to me. No proof,just go with blind faith and the will to believe in lies...yep, sounds about right for the GOP side of when it comes to herding their supporters beneith them.

Time to start backing up the GOP misinformation with facts Kat H....Can you do that with this blog's opinion ? Of course you can't....Yep a big ol........ROFLMAO....at the rightwingers in general.. Fire with fire and lies get their pants set on fire on these kinds of threads in the future. No more over looking the lies and crazy threads of the Fascist here on care2.

I just want to say thanks to those 3 who just responded - you did exactly what I knew you would do - insults.....keep up the good work, your message is getting through loud and clear.

And the fact that never once have I said this article is right or wrong YET everyone assumes I take the side of this article - yes ya'll read very well.....when in fact it appears all these 3 want to do is jump on those wo may oppose their views and beat the crap out of them until they give in and say Uncle......so your way of getting your point across is to beat someone down until they give in...sad, really, really sad.

Keep throwing the insults and punches, I will continue to bounce up and smell like roses. Thanks you 3 for making my point! Love it!!!

What's left to do after all these years, Kat/Hans? Almost 3 years since this crap came out and no sign ofit being true and you still want proof that it's not? If 3 more years go by and Obama STILL hasn't taken your 401k, will you believe it then? No. You will have moved on to other liberal hating material. You see, Kat. We know you like the back of our hand. You'll never wise up, no matter how low the american people become. You'll never answer the important questions to continue the debate and grow. You'll only ask for proof and never consider it. We know! We know every single one of you all to well.

Do you know what House Republicans have done to create jobs since claiming the Majority three months ago? Nothing.

However, they’ve found time for votes to restrict access to reproductive health care, take teachers out of our classrooms, nurses out of our hospitals, and even to defund NPR. All told, Republican cuts would destroy 700,000 jobs.

I’ve had enough of the Republicans’ extremist anti-jobs agenda and I think you have too.

On March 31st, we’ll hit the first FEC quarterly filing deadline since the outrageous GOP power play in Wisconsin and Republicans took the reins in the House. The eyes of the nation will be on our fundraising numbers to judge our grassroots determination to fight back against the radical Republican agenda. We must have a strong showing.

Then do the same thing.

Dear Mr. President; What About Middle Class America? -- Is Your Solution Still Printing More Money???" -- The Fifth Knight's Blog - New March 22, 2011 Entry

For those who oppose the Obama Administration's U.S. economic policy decisions and after reading the "Annual Report on Middle Class" pdf, with their noble posturing in February of 2010, then we can vividly see why there is a growing opposition.

By reflecting back over the past 13 months (Feb 2010 - Mar 2011) up to current time and basically looking slightly forward into our economic future, we must take pause to address our present concerns.

We fail to see any significant assistance actually being rendered toward those identified as average American Middle Class families and their continuing desperate pursuit of legal employment within the United States of America!

Wherever President Obama is involved, we always hear pro-Obama followers exclaiming "Give him more time and have patience!", but after the last 13 months with virtually NO results in sight and having to constantly hear people complain (including my own family members) within our local grocery and retail stores on a daily basis, then we begin to seriously wonder ... What's Up With That????

The United States Government is becoming more desperate by the day and a loud question is currently being raised as to what is going to be done in Washington D.C. concerning these volatile financial situations.

The United States Government has been eyeing American individual retirement accounts since 1993, in order to manipulate this as an emergency reserve cash-flow fund, which of course the federal government would promise to insure its monetary safety and stability.

Our main hope is that if enough Americans speak-out against this total federal takeover of all individual 401K's and IRA's, then it would become political suicide for them to commit such an absurd act in the first place.

Social Security is a government controlled system and has now become morally and economically bankrupt, so federal control over individual retirement accounts would also be run-into-the-ground -- no differently in-like-fashion over the long term.

Raiding an already crippled system as an emergency cash fund is obviously not the appropriate answer!

Over the next 12 months the U.S. economy is going to be inundated by a tsunami of financial reckonings and if the United States currency (USD) continues to slowly be removed as the World's Reserve Currency, then this is where the real and absolute threat and present danger to the American way of life exists!

It appears that hyperinflation could possibly be right around the corner ... and we have to stop and ask ourselves:

Where are the jobs Mr. President?

The stimulus did not effectively work and how are we going to continue paying for these rising commodity prices in our stores!?!?

Are you on vacation again Mr. President and will you get back to us very soon on these critical issues????

We can only sincerely hope that President Obama will in fact physically respond with no fancy speeches ... if any ... before it gets too incredibly late.

Americans are beginning to wake-up and ask themselves these very same exacting questions here today!

"Obama Administration Plans to Seize 401(k) Retirement Accounts" - New American - May 2010

"Annual Report on Middle Class" - White House Vice President Biden - @ WhiteHouse.gov - February 2010

What's the hold-up .... or is this exactly what it seems ....

A HOLD UP!?!?!?

The US is not a dictatorship which is why Obama, in a sense, has his hands tied, If congress & the Senate don't bill, he can't sign it. the Repub congress has done nothing productive since they have been in power.

I made an early comment and after reviewing the comments since, felt it useful to provide the following: By way of background, I am a tax attorney and consider myself a middle of the road Republican. I follow the proposals regarding taxes and legislation. There has never been a proposal or an attempt to require private pensions plans or 401k or IRAs to be only invested in government securities. At all times, so long as fiduciary responsibilities are met, these sort of plans are individually invested. There has been a Republican proposal to privatize Social Security investments, which most folks who work in this arena see as disastrous. First, the government uses the Social Security funds to invest in government securities to provide money and that would go away. Second, since private investments go up and down in value, the failure of this approach would simply lead to another costly bailout. The private investment of Social Security funds should be resisted by each of us.

pink has no clue as to what she is talking about. she mentioned social security as being "morally bankrupt". i didn't know a program can be "morally bankrupt".

fyi pinky, social security is a federal trust fund so that if times warranted BORROWING from the fund, then the federal government was able to do so. the idea behind the BORROWING is that eventually, the ones who BORROWED the money would have to budget appropriately so the money could be returned to the fund. i guess you can't name the one who continuously raided the fund so that now everyone is screaming the fund is broke, which, by the way, is not true. come on, give a guess! if you guessed bush and war criminals inc, then you win a cookie!

it's funny how you are referring to this economy as less than a one term president's economy. were you asleep for the past 30 years?

do you know what the federal reserve is?

how about the world trade organization?

international monetary fund?

world bank?

do you know how u.s. and e.u. agricultural subsidies work?

do you know anything of the futures market and who writes the laws that governs the futures market?

do you know which entity is working extremely hard to de-value the dollar? do you even know that there negotiations occurring between nations to decided which currency would remain solvent and which would be de-valued?

Two comments. An earlier comment stated that the Republicans deregulated Wall Street. Actually is was during the Clinton Administration after heavy, heavy lobbing by the banks, particularly Citi. The most devastating law aimed at high income is Internal Revenue Code 409A, which penalizes certain forms of executive compensation. It is a Republican induced law.

Linda Away, I'm sorry you lost your dream. A LOT of republican supporters did too. That was supposed to wise them up to see the light that we're trying to shine. Instead, we see a total and utter display of a cult like zombie. A loyalty that scares the hell out of me and others, I'm sure. They followed the enemy of the people right over the cliff and here we are. Having a conversation about it as we fall to our deaths.

Hans may appear to be a regular guy like you and I but I suspect he's more like a wealthy shill, posting his BS in between stock market looting shorts. It's safe to say, deception is a way of life on the right. Honor and respect have no meaning anymore. Taught to them over the years. They laugh as they lie. It's now their culture. They'll pass their hate on to their kids like racism is passed on. Never thinking or CARING about the future they will leave them.
No Nick, they will never answer the questions. They know they can't, so they just play the game and giggle about it like the children and go on their merry way.
Who gets more blame for our down fall, them or the politicians they're shaking the reigns at?

Dear Jason,

Today on the first anniversary of the historic Affordable Care Act (ACA) the Republicans on the powerful House Energy and Commerce Committee are holding a “public” hearing at the state capitol in Harrisburg, PA to attack the health care law. Except they're not there to listen to the public and people like Pennsylvania's Stacie Ritter, whose family had good insurance and still had to file for bankruptcy because of massive medical bills.

The Republicans don’t care about families like the Ritters. They want to repeal the new law that would help prevent other families from going through what happened to Stacie’s family. Stand with Stacie and millions of others who refuse to let the Republicans put the insurance companies back in charge of our health care. Fight back against these partisan attacks on America’s middle class.

Stacie and her husband Ben had to pay huge fees for the treatments their twin girls, Hannah and Madeline, needed when they were diagnosed with leukemia. It was too much and they went bankrupt. Thankfully Hannah and Madeline are doing well today but Republicans in congress want to take us back to a time where insurance companies could deny them coverage because of their medical history.

While the Republicans play politics and grandstand, Stacie and hundreds of others will be telling the truth about the ACA in the Capitol Rotunda to make sure the stories of average Pennsylvanians are heard, especially those already benefiting from the law’s many cost savings and consumer protections. Join us and fight back today.

The ACA is providing life-changing benefits, cost-savings and protections that are making a huge difference in people’s lives right now. But, the ACA is about more than health care. It’s also about economic security for families struggling to make ends meet. We can’t preserve and expand the middle-class if people have to worry about health care.

Stacie says it best, “This is America,” she says. “I knew we could do better with our heath care than we’ve done in the past and I’m glad we have this law. We won’t go back. We’ve got to move forward.”

Join the fight today to protect America’s middle class families.

In Solidarity,

Jason --

Once again, Republicans are on the wrong side of history.

House Democrats have led the fight to create jobs, enact health care reform, demand financial accountability on Wall Street and, together with President Obama, restore America's leadership and reputation around the world.

It is because of these accomplishments that House Democrats are now the targets of vicious attacks by their Republican opponents, funded by unaccountable special interests.

This is no time to stand on the sidelines. We need grassroots Democrats like you to get involved.

unaccountable special interests means the federal reserve banks, such as jp morgan chase, the world trade organization that is supposed to be the ruling entity over global trade laws, the international monetary fund that actually has democratically elected leaders assassinated because those leaders refused to accept loans at ridiculously inflated interest rates that they knew a small country, such as bosnia, could never pay off, etc and so on. one notorious member of the federal reserve banks is...drum role please... bush senior! his grandfather was intricately tied to jp morgan, the bank that took care of the nazi funds. yes, the bush family made it's fortune off of the nazis. and who did bush senior have assassinated while he was the director of the cia? president jfk! jfk did three major things that would have taken control over the u.s. economy out of bush sr's hands and put it back where it belongs, with the people.

1) jfk would not continue the invasion of cuba in order to capture/kill castro. bush is extremely pissed about this because, under the despot batista, bush sr was able to gain the controlling interest of the sugar plantations on cuba and have a significant share of the cuban oil reserves. bush sr was able to build a close relationship with batista because he was the director of the cia.

2) jfk was going to have the cia investigated for its shady activities. who was director of the cia? bush sr!

3) jfk had signed into law executive order 11110 which abolished the federal reserve and put control of the money back into the people's hands. jp morgan is a federal reserve bank. the federal reserve, a private banking conglomeration, actually tells our federal government how to run OUR economy. WTF! fascism at its finest. with the federal reserve gone, the bush war criminals inc family would have lost their strangle hold on our economy.

I am not sure how you arrive at your conclusion about my “fake” profile page, whatever you are referring to. I graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Wisconsin in 1954, set the then all-time scholastic record at my law school, was “number 1” on the Florida Bar, am an av rated lawyer, which is as high as it can be. At age 80 I am still practicing, writing, and speaking. I am a moderate politically, and find no room for a moderate in the Republican Party. You may wish to check out my blog, theglobalnaturalist.com. So what’s your problem? Is it that I read the law, follow what is going on in the world on a daily basis, write books and articles about the law? Or that you don’t agree with what I said?

I've received mail after writing letters to the editor in the local paper - it's not easy to track somebody down if they have your name.

Does anyone research anything any more or does the majority just believe every piece of propaganda and drivel it reads without question. What a sad society we have become. Do half of the people in this country know what congress, the senate, and each titled member of the government do? The fact of the matter is the party system is broken and no longer works. Special interest is really running the country. Does any one remember the words "We The People" and which piece of paper they are written on? Believe it or not people the President of the United States is not the Anti Christ and is not responsible for everything that someone may or may not like in this country. Please educate your selves and stop jumping on the band wagons. By the way name calling makes you look so much more intelligent and makes people want to take you so much more seriously.

Phyllis, I agree with much of what you say. I just want to point something out to you. When you say the ignorance and stupidity that runs rampant in this country, your words could be construed as name calling...as in someone or group is ignorant and stupid. I know, I know, your simply describing their actions as you see them, but stupid is as stupid does...and thats the quandary we find ourselves in as we confront behavior in words acted out here over and over again. Not once as with a mistake which could be isolated and experienced as if as a single thing alone, within a vacuum. No. We see here the same group sometimes with multiple pseudonyms displaying remarkable stupidity as a part of their embedded personalities, regurgitated with remarkable regularity. After a while the actions can not be separated from the actors...thus "it", (the action), is not stupid as its to oft repeated, so It is they... they are stupid. And because we no longer can separate the action from the actor, we have name called. So be it.

Interesting comment Robert, though I am disappointed to see so many bright and otherwise constructive minds wasting their time on this thread. If any thing is to change in this country then it will only happen by unity. Threads like this create move divisiveness and actually lead no where.

Get off your asses and get out there in your communities, do something positive and try to bring people together. We are being eaten by the oligarchy and you waste time fighting over that which will not be affected by fights on the Internet. Be a force for some thing positive - forget the party lines - go plant some trees, build some community gardens (you'll be needing the food) bring in the BSA and GSA and then reach out to their parents. We no longer have a need for the wealthy they offer no jobs, small businesses and co-ops offer jobs, take a long honest look and stop being dupes for the plutocracy - shed the years of indoctrinations and learn to see the reality of the world as it is - America as it is - a myth.

There are those who will attempt to throw mud all over the facts, but they cannot ultimately extinguish the truth!

The once muscular and robust Obama presidency has now undergone a dramatic downsizing.

Three polls on Tuesday revealed he is quickly losing core support and even the dwindling Obama die-hards are beginning to question his limited abilities.

There is a quote, by I can't rcall who but it totally applies to the Current situation. "When Fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in a flag & carrying a cross." That is what the current Republican party is.
And that what their backers are, Fascist Kochites & Pseudo-Christians.

We have to seriously wonder if Vice President Biden's blunder (remember him?) was just a prelude to Obama's failed economic policies, because now we understand that Obama's solution was and still is to throw money ( 1+ trillion $$$) at the problem.

To The Reader;

Do you feel that President Obama is a lame-duck leader stuck in perpetual grid-lock and do you further suspect the Democratic Party is about to ask Obama to withdraw from the 2012 re-election race, in order to clear a path for real viable Dem candidates???

Then here is the alternative Care2 group for you to join, because we have daily articles that do not protect Obama with any kind of 'white kid gloves'!! : > > > >

And now for some truth...

Thom's blog
Hell no you can't!?

You need to know this. "Hell no you can't!" In a speech yesterday - Speaker of the House John Boehner slammed President Obama's "American Jobs Act" - calling it a "poor substitute" for actual job creation policies.

But a week ago - when President Obama unveiled his plan - Speaker Boehner seemed open to negotiating on it. So it looks like Eric Cantor and the rest of the Tea Party Republicans who'd rather see the economy crash than Obama succeed - once again stuck the shiv in Boehner and told him, "no deal," just like they did in the debt-limit debate. Instead of the "American Jobs Act" - Boehner put forward more of the same Republican proposals to create jobs - more tax cuts for millionaires, billionaires, and transnational corporations - the so-called "job creators" as pollster Frank Luntz calls them - and more deregulation to that the Republican Party's corporate overlords can keep making profits off poisoning the air we breath and contaminating the water we drink.

But this is great news for the President - because now he can put his Harry Truman hat on - and run against the Republicans in 2012 - as the Party that's against job creation in America.

-Thom

Last week wasn't great for Republican Senate candidates. The Truth-O-Meter found that Ohio’s Josh Mandel and Virginia’s George Allen lied. Fewer primary candidates mean Republican Sen. Dick Lugar might have a harder time winning the GOP nomination. Michigan Republicans are decidedly not excited about voting for congressman-turned-lobbyist Pete Hoekstra, and we’re going after all these Republicans on their willingness to end Social Security as we know it. And if you missed the GOP debate, this clip will tell you all you need to know about values of the Tea Party movement.

Share these stories on Facebook here and Twitter here. And be sure to follow me @guycecil, where you can get my take on politics throughout the week.

If this email was forwarded to you, and you’d like to see what I’m reading each week, sign up here.

Truth-O-Meter Reads FALSE for Mandel and Allen
PolitiFact’s Truth-O-Meter found that both Ohio’s Josh Mandel and Virginia’s George Allen made claims that were completely and utterly false. Mandel lied about Sen. Sherrod Brown’s campaign finances, and Allen lied about cutting spending as governor. Nice try, Republicans.

Delph Not Running is Bad News for Lugar
Republican Sen. Dick Lugar got bad news this week when state Sen. Mike Delph said he’s not running in the Republican primary. Why is that bad news for Lugar? That makes it more likely that Richard Mourdock can win the primary. Two primary challengers could have split the anti-Lugar vote and let Lugar squeak through. In either case, we've got a great candidate in Joe Donnelly. This is one red seat we've got a good chance of turning blue. Full Article »

Conservative Activists Take a Pass on Pete
Bad news for Pete Hoekstra: Conservative activists in Michigan are saying that the congressman-turned-lobbyist can’t beat Sen. Debbie Stabenow, and they’re looking for a candidate who can. They’ve branded Hoekstra as a “Washington insider,” which certainly won’t endear him to Tea Party activists. Full Article »

DSCC Taking Social Security Fight Down the Ballot
Here’s an example of how the radical views being touted by Republican presidential candidates will affect races down the ballot. Last week, the DSCC launched an effort to tie a number of candidates, including Scott Brown of Massachusetts, George Allen of Virginia, Dean Heller of Nevada, Dennis Rehberg of Montana and Jeff Flake of Arizona, to Rick Perry’s view that Social Security should be scrapped. It’s a decidedly unpopular view with American voters, and we’re going to keep up the pressure. Full Article »

Your Gift Now Helps us Fight!
You know how high the stakes are in 2012. If the GOP flips only four seats, they’ll retake the Senate. We won’t be able to stop them from ending Social Security as we know it, or whatever else the Tea Party demands. We have a huge fundraising goal in September; we still need to raise $671,000 to meet it. Can you chip in to help us get there? Support Democrats »
