Perhaps it is a symbol of 'something' growing, but it definitely is not of any type of prosperity that we have come to know in our past.

I suspect that Jae "yawn" A. has probably bought one of these hideous things and is just to afraid to admit it to us!

Here is another Care2 article to chew on:

Chicago -- In 2008, with ties to Obama's early political career, Antoin Rezko was convicted of 16 counts involving fraud, money-laundering and bribery while using his connections with top political leaders to influence their decisions. Rezko doing 10.5

I am not happy with some of the things Obama has done, or not done. But people forget that the Fascist Party (AKA Republican Party) ran up a 10 trillion (that is 10,000,000,000,000) debt. The deficit was caused by two wars not paid for; huge tax breaks for the wealthiest people in this country, and a recession as a result of the greed, recklessness and illegal behavior on Wall Street.

The Fascist Party lambasted Obama over the stimulus bill. But they say nothing about the $300 billion stimulus bill they passed and gave to Wall street without any accountability.

Too many people believe everything they read in those anonymous e-mail messages they receive blaming Obama for the deficit.

As the FactCheck.Org site says: Don't get spun by Internet rumors
Just because you read it on somebody's blog or in an email from a friend or relative does not mean it is true. In fact, it is probably not. See our list of the false or misleading viral rumors we're asked about most often.

Oh this store had me busting a gut in laughter!!!...........Especially the two cheap Walmart green and red to easily bustable ball ornaments, LOL1 Then they had the audacity to pimp baby onesies, when Obama and the missus are all for abortion. Then get a load of the "magnetic" Obama sticker stuck on the ford focus on the front page of the stores website...He must know he's toast when you magnatize your sticker for two reasons....1). You don't anticipate being around for long and 2). you make a sticker that is far to easy for a Conservative, say such as myself to peel it right off and toss it into lake Michagan.......DUH!!!!!

The yawn was for more racist crap ..image etc....being posted by you Pink.

Dubya sold us out to China long before Obama came along...and he did more so than Clinton as what's the point here..if not just another rightwing racist posting ?

Oh dear Jae, time to lighten up.

Jae A (316)
Monday November 28, 2011, 2:37 am's always time to lighten up or is that light up ! Anyway, I am not 100% pleased with Obama nor am I 100%
dissatisfied with Obama. He's the best that the Republicans have going for them which is my objection to him primarily. However....Racism for the sake of racism posting I am not in favor of..but most of us know there are such people who that's their main attraction and attention span that are on care2. Nothing new, just gets old etc. and boring after so much of it by the same people over and over. Their choice of course, just not mine, nor do I find pandering to their threads in a positive manner helpful to the nation. Anyway, I have stated long ago what I said about Obama just a few sentences ago at the beginning of this post , yet Pink doesn't want to admit to my doing so. She can't grasp the reality that the rightwing Congress is the real problem...and has been for over a decade now along with Dubya. Presidents come and go but those A.H.'s hang in long past their time in the case of the majority of them, on the GOP side of things expecially. Never a negative post about them from Pink, only Neg.s about Obama, which the vast majority of us know about already.. so more of the same...well to me that can only be racism .While the rest of us are trying to discuss solutions,current ones being tried like that of OWS ets., the racist find nothing more to post than the same ol Obama neg.s that we all hear and know by now etc..Obama might not be 100% approved of by myself as well as many other liberals but he's a thousand times better than any of the religious and or corrupt scum running against him presently. Lessor of evils ..perhaps. We shall see in time if someone out of the dark will jump in that is better but at this time, I see none.

I enjoy tasteful ethnic humor as much as the next person but when the underlining theme is the 'black character' role when it comes to Obama again and again...boring...and yes...wrong....and or just a big ol yawn, in my opinion .

There is more mainstream evidence in existence right now that supports the realization of President Obama being nothing more than an inexperienced Chicago politician, than there is any existing evidence to the contrary ...

And this body of evidence appears to be growing by the day within the mainstream media!!

-------- Obama Solyndra Scandal
-------- Obama Fast and Furious Guns
-------- Obama Rezko Fundraiser
-------- Obama Healthcare Supreme Court
-------- Obama Disapproval Rating
-------- Obama Gridlock
-------- Obama Democrats Worry
-------- Obama National Security Weak
-------- Obama U.S. Economy
-------- Obama Supercommittee Failure
-------- Anti Obama

And where are the few jewels of mainstream counter-evidence to support President Obama as being a great president and doing an excellent job???

We have asked some of you to produce those links of counter-evidence and you mysteriously fail to submit them, but rather issue us with empty Campaign 2008 Pro-Obama rhetoric in its place instead.

Perhaps it is because there is no existing body of evidence to support President Obama as being even a good president -- I bet!!!

Everyone has the right and freedom to choose their own personal candidate for 2012, so do not listen to empty rhetoric; however here is some food for thought ....

> Green Party USA Is Preparing For 2012:

Dr. Jill Stein has recently won an amazing 27% 3-way split of the vote during a mock election trial-run. Her presidential campaign for official Green Party USA nomination continues.

Please see my comment #1 for full-coverage links and then share the following article:

I was just told that the Chia-Obama is very much like a 'Pinnochio' puppet with a growing ever-longer nose, however I replied that the Chia-Obama nose is vastly too short for reality's sake, but then the image wouldn't fit on the box!!

LOL!!! Sadly true.

Thanks Obama, because your administration was warned back in 2009 that you should engage your promised Campaign 2008 U.S. state-to-state reconstruction plan, which you ignored and went Stimulus/Stimulus instead ....

Wrong Answer!!!!

As it is now, every gas station sign is an anti-Obama 2012 campaign ad ...

But just wait and see how high the prices-per-gallon jumps after these new Iranian oil sanctions go into effect.

I certainly understand how U.S. businesses feel and who could possibly blame them for not hiring until Obama is ousted.

President Obama is more worried about Campaign 2012 reelection agenda, rather than being concerned with other things such as the U.S. unemployment numbers escalating and the economic crisis as a whole (hole)!!

When you find yourself in a hole, then quit digging -- Reject Democrats -- Reject Republicans too!

Vote: Green 3rd Party 2012!!!

Having just seen a TV ad selling the Chia-Obama this morning, I suppose this item is just barely note-worthy. However, that's not why PinkMindy is posting this. She's just using it as another excuse to bash Obama even though this has NOTHING to do with him other than using his name & likeness.

Though, come to think of it, shouldn't Republicans be happy to see such an example of American inventiveness? I'm sure this created some jobs, even if most of them were in China.

I just did a presentation on the health benefits of chia seeds for my science of nutrition class haha. So if you would rather not look at a ceramic Obama head growing green hair, try eating the seeds instead! They are very heart healthy. Although the seeds found for chia pets or chia "people" are not FDA approved for consumption :/

Horse slaughter plants are now in legal operation once again within the U.S., with the stroke of President Obama's pen in signing the H.R.2112 spending bill and thereby lifting set restrictions on horse meat processing for human consumption.
