Flooding, Failed Infrastructure + Joblessness

Proof that we don't need the big, evil, Socialist government raising taxes on millionaires to invest in infrastructure jobs. Sounds like a no brainer to me...Spend millions on evacuation and clean up whilst shutting down all economic activity in these areas, lose the power generated from these nuclear plants or hire a bunch of people that will stimulate the economy and save property, lives, to build levees and rebuild dams, rivers,etc. Which would you rather do? They both cost money but one helps the economy and people, the other doesn't. One could be paid for by taxing rich people.

And it's also proof that the climate isn't changing at all...This is completely normal...For Noah.

What He Said


What he says is what I have been saying since forever ago. Jesus never addresses homosexuality and when it is condemned in the Old Testament, it's on the same page where it also condemns eating shellfish and having sex with your wife on her period. And then of course the only place it is addressed in the New Testament, by Paul, not Jesus, it only condemns male homosexuality and then in the same breath condemns short hair on Women and long hair on Men. And as he states, in many places in the Bible divorce is condemned by several people including Jesus yet the Bible belt, which is the most homophobic part of the country, leads the nation in divorce rates. So, there is a lot of hypocrisy out there.

“Barack Obama has failed America"

“Barack Obama has failed America”

That's what Mitt Romney said in a recent debate. He said so referring mainly to the economy because you know, the two wars Bush started which drive up oil prices and the uprising in the Middle East also, driving up oil prices, is all Barack Obama's fault. Unemployment was up again slightly for the month and so after 2 1/2 years in office, apparently everything that is wrong with America is the result of Obama's actions.

Here is why I can't wait for one of those Youtube debates again or one where citizens get to make of the questions because what I would ask Romney and each of the other candidates would be what specific policy or piece of legislation has Obama signed resulted in a failure that has ruined America...The only sound you will hear will be crickets.

Again, the debt, deficit, wars, were all inherited by Obama as was a much worse economy than what we have today. I certainly don't want to go back to Oct 08-Jan 09 which was a result of 8 years of a Republican President and years of Republican Presidents and Republican Congresses (yes I realize Clinton signed a lot of those bills) deregulating the financial and housing markets and encouraging jobs to be sent over seas while irresponsibly lowering taxes and lowering them on the rich more than anyone else which has had the exact opposite affect they said it would have. As it turns out tax cuts don't pay for themselves and when you cut taxes on rich people, they don't go out on a hiring spree, they get greedier and send your jobs to China and then have more money to hire fancy accountants to find more tax loopholes.

So Republicans, what specific policies has Obama instituted and what has been their dire and drastic effects that have failed America?

Here is the way I see it, at the end of 2000 before Bush took office the Dow Jones Industrial Average was at 10,787. At the end of his term at the end of 2008, it was down to 8776. Today it is around 12000.

Housing starts in December of 2008 were at 549,000, in May they were at 612,000. Not great, but better than where Bush and the Republicans got us.

These numbers don't tell the entire story but I feel if McCain and Ms. Dumb Dumb and the Republicans were still in charge, continuing their policies of letting the banks and auto companies fall whilst lowering taxes on rich people and expanding the debt and starting more wars, we would be in the midst of a depression.

Historical ignorance isn't a problem if you just rewrite history

This is not the first time you have heard about this I am sure but Palin fans are taking a page from the Texas School board to literally rewrite history to fit their conservative and or ignorant (often synonymous) view of history.

"What are you taking away from your visit?" GOTCHA!!

She has to be the dumbest person ever to run for President.

Romney Lies

Well, Joseph Smith wouldn't be too proud of Mitt Romney right now for lying...I though lies made the baby Jesus cry??

Yes Romney, in his first campaign speech, said the economy was worse now that when Obama took office...Which everyone, even Sarah Palin knows, isn't even remotely true. The fact is, that after 8 years of a Republican President, mostly under a Republican controlled Congress, our economy hadn't been worse in over 75 years. Obama is the one who took us out of that and we are now on the road to recovery. The economy is ADDING jobs (slowly) not losing them like in 08.

The other lie he said was this, "A few months into office, he (Obama) traveled around the globe to apologize for America." Though we probably should apologize to many peoples of the Earth, especially Iraq, this did not happen. Obama did talk about how he wasn't going to be like his predecessor who invaded countries for no cause, gave up on Bin Laden, crashed the economy and tortured people. Bush is the one who should be apologizing, not Obama.

He also said foreclosures are at a record level which is false. As is Romney's lie that Obama has raised taxes on entrepreneurs and businesses which can't even be denied even in a Republican fantasy land...He didn't even get to raise taxes on the rich like he wanted to...I wish I could say that he did but that has not happened.

These are the first words out of his mouth from his new campaign and it's pretty much all bullshit. Is this someone you can trust?

Just tell the truth! What are you afraid of Romney?
