Obama et al destroy US economy as they did Illinois, Suburban poor living in distressed neighborhoods grew by 139 percent, Illinois worst US recovery and twice as many food stamp recipients as new jobs

 

“Over the last six months, of the net job creation, 97 percent of that is part-time work,”…Keith Hall, former BLS chief

“One of the CBO’s most intriguing estimates is that by 2017 there will be 2 million fewer full-time jobs on the market than there would have been without Obamacare, and that figure could climb to 2.5 million by 2024.”…Market Watch February 4, 2014

“Nearly half of U.S. companies are reluctant to hire full-time employees because of the ACA. One in five firms indicates they are likely to hire fewer employees, and another one in 10 may lay off current employees in response to the law.

Other firms will shift toward part-time workers. More than 40 percent of CFOs say their companies will consider switching some jobs to less than 30 hours per week or targeting part-time workers for future employment.”…Duke University Fuqua School of Business December 11, 2013

“Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”…George Orwell, “1984″

 

 

I warned you early that Obama et al would do to the US economy what they did to Illinois.

From Citizen Wells March 29, 2012.

What do Obama and John Glennon have in common aside from associations with Stuart Levine and other Chicago corruption figures?

Involvement with the IL TRS, Teachers Retirement System.

What else do they have in common?

They were both involved with the TRS in 2002 and 2003.

What is significant about these years?

2003: “Of the five funds, the one in the sorriest shape is the Illinois Teacher Retirement System, which provides the pensions for suburban and downstate teachers. Its ratio of assets to liabilities stood at a mere 52 percent last year, so poor that it was considered among the five worst-funded plans in the country.”

From Citizen Wells October 26, 2009.

“What is the current attempt by Obama and liberal Democrats at health care reform all about?

  • Appeasing their far left core support.
  • More control over the American people to get votes.
  • Payback to trial lawyers and other big supporters (refer to contribution table above).
  • Achieving the goals of far left, socialist, communists who are controlling the party with the goal of redistribution of wealth..

Truth about Obama Health care Reform

WOULD YOU TRUST OBAMA, ET AL WITH YOUR AND YOUR FAMILY’S HEALTH CARE?

Please pass this story along to Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and as many people as possible. The story of Alonzo Monk pleading guilty has been barely covered. The much larger story of Monk’s involvement in Illinois corruption, the impact on health care in IL and Monk’s ties to Obama is a much bigger story. And the really big story is that Obama is trying to force health care changes on this country just like Rod Blagojevich tried, for the enrichment of himself and his cronies.”

Here are some more recent examples.

From Illinois Policy September 16, 2014.

“Illinois’ sluggish jobs recovery is coming at a tremendous cost. For every post-recession job created in Illinois, nearly two people have enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly known as food stamps.

In the recession era, the number of Illinoisans dependent on food stamps has risen by 745,000. Without adequate job creation in the state, Illinois families have had no choice but to depend upon food stamps to put bread on the table.

The Prairie State has had the worst recovery from the Great Recession of any state in the U.S. There are nearly 300,000 fewer Illinoisans working today than in January 2008, and 170,000 fewer payroll jobs.”

From the Brookings Institute July 31, 2014.

“This brief updates the 2011 report, The Re-Emergence of Concentrated Poverty, using the latest neighborhood-level poverty data from the American Community Survey for 2008 through 2012, to examine where and how poor populations have shifted at the neighborhood level. The 2008-2012 period captures the peak of the Great Recession and the sluggish recovery that followed, which as of 2012, had yet to translate to declines in the nation’s record-high poor population. These data reveal the extent to which concentrated disadvantage has grown since 2000 in the nation’s 100 largest metro areas, and how these trends have played out across city and suburban lines.3 In particular, the brief examines the changing incidence of both distressed neighborhoods, in which at least 40 percent of residents live below poverty, and high-poverty neighborhoods, where at least 20 percent of residents are poor.”

“As poverty increased and spread during the 2000s, the number of distressed neighborhoods in the United States—defined as census tracts with poverty rates of 40 percent or more—climbed by nearly three-quarters (Table 1). (Note that the analysis excludes both tracts with small populations and those where more than 50 percent of residents enrolled in college or graduate school.) The population living in such neighborhoods grew by similar margins (76 percent, or 5 million people) to reach 11.6 million by 2008-2012. Of those residents, 5.4 million were poor. By 2008-2012, the concentrated poverty rate—or share of poor residents living in distressed tracts—had reached  12.2 percent, up from 9.1 percent in 2000. This trend indicates that an increased share of poor individuals today face the “double burden” of not only their own poverty, but also the disadvantages of those around them.”

  2. CW…….
    I would be a believer in the fact that there will be no intrinsic recovery…..rather the quality of life in America will continue to PLUMMET. Nor does the forseeable future offer any recovery. The more companies(particularly large companies) that are forced offshore the worse the problem will become. When no companies or taxable business remains then the REGIME is also finished,and unfortunately so will a hell of a lot of innocent people. The grand,and wonderful Socialist bullshi# will be exposed for what it really is……..”an idiotic notion” practiced by stupid people,who think their living should be HANDED TO THEM FOR FREE!

  3. ………..and at which point America will look like Detroit does today.

  4. Well said …Oldsailor82

    By the way, that has been the Democrat PLAN all along ..for all of America to look like Detroit, we are well on the way toward accomplishing that goal

  8. Dean M. | September 16, 2014 at 11:48 pm (from previous thread),

    Your points that you have researched re. O’s shiite ties are indeed compelling, and I’ve always ascribed to your viewpoint, which you’ve held
    unwaveringly from the beginning.

    I still do consider them very important and valid but lately have begun to see O in a different light, as I explained in two threads back. This latest opinion is not at all in conflict with your findings, it is just that I continue to wonder how dedicated he is to either one of the sects. He vacillates, has no true core values of decency, and at times acts absolutely idiotic; and, of course, the lies continue unending.

    He is also very saturated with the Black Liberation Theology, which Jeremiah Wright preaches and sat under that doctrine for 20 years. So he has a lot to juggle these days.

    That preaching (“G…D….America”) goes along with how the writer of the following article views O’s present actions. It is a good read.

    Obama Can’t Afford to Win in Iraq
    (quote)
    Obama does not want to win his new Iraq war. He can’t afford to. If the projection of American military power successfully solved the problem of Islamic terrorism, it would shatter Obama’s entire worldview.
    (snip)
    The only way to end terrorism is for America to apologize to those we have oppressed. To make ourselves weaker, and thus, more moral. To surrender our material advantages, making our world more fair.
    Obama might employ military solutions here and there to buy a couple more years for his great liberal project. But his ego cannot afford a sweeping military victory against third-world enemies.

    *************************
    Frankly, I think he is more interested in his image as referenced above than he is in religion.

  9. Dean M.,
    Of course, we also must factor into O’s behavior the years of heavy drug use and other excesses. That could account for some of the downright stupid things. I’m thinking about when he was recently asked how he would advise ISIS, to which he replied that he would send hostages back home with a note attached to each telling their countries to stay out of ISIS’ business, or something very similar. That coming from the pResident? What an ignoramus!

  10. Do you know this?

    The 3,000 troops to be sent to Liberia in the war against Ebola will not be under the Dept. of Defense but rather under the State Department.

    I am seeing red!!!

    (quote)
    None of the government health witnesses testifying were able to answer basic questions, including how many physicians and nurses would be among the 3,000 troops allocated or what type of protective equipment and training would be employed to prevent infection.

    The witnesses explained the State Department was in charge of the military mission, not the Pentagon.

    “Who do we call when there is a problem with the troops in Liberia?” asked Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Texas, a physician and a guest on the committee.

    “You call USAID,” replied Nancy Lindborg, assistant administrator for the U.S. Agency for International Development, USAID.

    She explained the situation in Liberia is a medical emergency, and USAID is directing the Obama administration’s response in West Africa.

    USAID reports to the State Department, not to the Department of Defense.

  12. Did anybody watch the recent stuff on Lurch Kerry. His mind is pretty disheveled of late. He can’t even utter one sentence without saing “I MEAN”.
    Exactly what the POGUE FROM THE PICKLE FACTORY means is indeed in need of translation. He keeps getting his tongue wrapped around his eye tooth,and like his protoge Mr.Biden can’t see what he is saying.

    As I have said before……

    The 3,000 US troops have been sent on a suicide mission by a proven madman…..I’m really surprised that he didn’t put old drunken Joe Biden in charge.

    I’m taking bets on when the first soldier comes down with that incurable disease…I’m also waiting to see how Obama justifies such a blunder as this.

  17. MICHEAL OBAMA SPEAKS TO THE KIDS…..

    First Lady Michelle Obama visited sick children at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, where she complained about living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and being married to the president of the United States. She made the comments in response to being asked about her “favorite part about being in the White House.”

    “About being in the — about being First Lady is being able to do stuff like this, really. And it is so special for me to get to meet kids like you guys,” Michelle Obama started.

    “Because sometimes living in the White House and being married to the President and trying to live a life like that, it can be hard. But when I meet you guys, I am so inspired, which is one of the reasons why I like to come and spend time with you guys.
    —————————————————————————————————
    three things to be said here…..

    1. Parents of sick children were banned from being with their sick children because of Michael’s visit and photo op……double shame on you.

    2. Those children are not GUYS, stupid….they are sick children that require some very serious treatment…..”YOU GUYS” are in Chicago….south side.

    3. If living the “life of Riley” is “SO HARD” on you…get the hell out of the White House and save the American taxpayer the expense of 26 servants who wait on your every mood swing. If you think things are HARD on you now…wait until you have to do things for yourself like 99.9% of all Americans.

    You are the only person I have ever heard of who constantly complains about the “easy life” which has been handed to you on a tarnished platter.

    You make me sick.

  18. IN CLOSING HIS REMARKS YESTERDAY AT MCDILL AF BASE IN FLORIDA, OBAMA SAID:…..

    “In his closing remarks on the Ebola outbreak, Obama said: “And please know that you’ve got your President and Commander-in-Chief behind you. Thank you.”

    The key word in this statement is BEHIND……That’s right Mr. pResident, you are well BEHIND every American…so far BEHIND that we can’t see you…

    You have been BEHIND ever since you were SELECTED to LEAD.

    Good leaders lead from the FRONT and say “Follow Me”….

    not from BEHIND and saying, “Why can’t you GUYs keep up with me”..

    You too, just like Michael, make me sick.

  19. When Soetoro says he is BEHIND everybody,he is really saying just that,only referring to SOMETHING ELSE…..sorta like doing a game of “DROP THE SOAP”…..that is why the word BEHIND comes out so easily whenever he opens his VACUUM CHAMBER. har har

  20. Robert the Bruce says vote…….Y E S !!!

    Come out from under the English yoke.

  21. Today I listened to a few minutes of the Ukraine president’s speech at a joint session of Congress. I think that he might have a much clearer feeling of what freedom is than our own young people,who never were aware of to begin with. It sounds to me as though the Ukraine might know more about freedom,than most Americans in general.It is a really sad epitaph of our now dying society,who once stood as the ICON of freedom. Bring on the beer,whiskey,the porn,the drugs,the sexual deviates, and all the rest of our now depraved, so called society. A very large portion of our so called Society has lost even the tiniest remnants of MORALITY and,all our alleged society wants these days is all it can get of all of the aforementioned vices. They no longer care about RELIGION, TRUTH,HONESTY OR,HARD WORK.
    They now think that everything should be FREE,including their living. We have lost several generations of our own,because of our own negligence. When our kiddies whined we gave them a new toy, and very quickly they figured out that all they needed to do was WHINE, and they could get anything they wanted. ……..and they grew up believing that everything should be for free. Sadly we failed to remember what the woodshed was used for so long ago. Recently a professional football player remembered and he is now out of a job. All he done was use a willow switch on his son who probably deserved it to begin with. In addition to his removal is the potential removal of the NFL commissioner himself.

  22. AND NOW……..
    …….many more of our young people are joining the ranks of the GOATHERDING BEHEADERS. This seems to support my belief that our young people are slowly losing the control of their own minds. They are being told that ALLAH ACKBAR,is the path to immortality,and they swallow the bullshi# hook line and sinker,and buy a ticket to Syria on the first available flight. One youngster was caught recently as she began to board her flight to Syria. She is now in jail. She wanted to teach JIHAD. One thing is certain…….most of the bullshi# that is going on in the world was choreographed,and perpetrated right at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. by the MASTER BAITER himself. It is NEVER TOO LATE for the application of the qwillow switch upon the buttocks of a persnickety little child.

  23. RMINNC……
    What many people fail to realise is that the Scottish referendum is in reality an attempt by the left to break down the UK. If they are successful in this effort Ireland will be next. This is nothing more than DIVIDE and conquer,which then takes the UK out of any meaningful resistance to being dominated by the Muslims…..and is the doorway to all of Europe. If you think this is all baloney I suggest that you take a very in depth look around then take a second look. You might begin to see the truth. The UK is in danger of total collapse,and it is result of people who are putrting their own selfish pursuits ahead of what is right. The UK is the doorway to Europe. After Europe comes America. We can sit on our complacent a$$es and let it happen or we can take steps to head off our own beheadings. Take you pick. If you choose the first then your life could come to a screeching halt as you are beheaded. If you think it can’t happen in America you had better think again. It can, and indeed you might be among those of the FIRST mass executions.

  24. BYE NOW,have a great day!

  25. ……..the stinking a$$ed youth gangs of America will become the tools of the jihad,and public figures will be among the first to be beheaded. Bye again!

    You sum up my opinions exactly re. Scotland and the UK. I have no roots there but just have that gut feeling that the secessionist move at this time is very unwise. This is a subtle way to break down the UK and make it easier for the Mooooslims to gain more control.

    Boko Haram, the vicious savages that kidnapped the 200 girls in Africa, is now joining up with ISIS.

  29. OLDSAILOR82….

    Your preaching to the choir.

    The UK has destroyed itself……by openly seeking to be “the all” to every HEATHERN race of people on planet earth……you know, “the White Man’s Burden” thing.

    They have committed self suicide by accepting all the radical Muslims from every nation in the Middle East into their motherland, then provide them with “free everything” (provided by their outrageous tax system) while those same people work to destroy England from within……

    Just last week, an 82 year old woman was publicly beheaded in England in broad daylight by a MUSLIM convert with a funny middle eastern name.

    Their jails are not full of criminals, they are full of Muslims……and the whole damn world knows that David Camron refuses to come down hard on the massive Muslim population which is now in England…..

    I, for one, do not blame Scotland for wanting to shed the albatross of England that has not only been a bloodsucker, but also one of Europe’s biggest supporter of a liberal agenda for open arms to the Muslims.

    If the British empire falls it is be of her own choosing and her own doing….you are right though when you say England is the doorway ( I say the back door) to Europe but exactly what resistance is the gate keeper providing to the fight against the radical Muslims who are already occupying their own country?

    England is full of radical Muslims, and England brought them there, and now England is paying the price for their yester-year foolishness…

    Now America is next and in that same process…Obama is bring them to here……

    Yes, the UK is in danger of total collapse as you say, but does that mean that the Scots, or Ireland, or Canada, or Australia must go down with a sinking ship that brought all of their grief upon themselves?

    I think Scotland can pretty well handle their own affairs. and if Ireland desires to also breakaway, I blame them not.

    I personally think It’s time for Elizabeth to get another day job.

    This is just my opinion, it will be up to the people of Scotland to decide.

  35. I believe you right again BOB……..

  36. Senator Ted Cruz

    The ETA thus has applicability beyond the immediate threat of ISIS, it is an important adjustment to our existing laws governing the renunciation of citizenship to reflect the threat posed by non-nation terrorist groups. As then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said concerning the Lieberman-Brown legislation, “United States citizenship is a privilege. It is not a right. People who are serving foreign powers — or in this case, foreign terrorists — are clearly in violation…of that oath which they swore when they became citizens.”

    The Expatriate Terrorist Act of 2014 is only a very modest change to current law, it’s one small step in a larger and necessary effort to re-focus our ISIS strategy that I urge President Obama to consider immediately: http://1.usa.gov/XM5KjO

  37. THIS SHOULD SCARE THE LIVING HELL OUT OF EVERYONE….

  38. NOW YOU KNOW WHY IRAQ FELL APART………

    If you’re wondering how Iraq fell apart, the Wall Street Journal has some new insight. According to a new report, President Obama put Vice President Joe Biden in charge of “day-to-day” management of Iraq.

    Mr. Obama had made exiting the prolonged Iraq and Afghan wars a cornerstone of his presidency.

    Through tight control over airstrikes in Syria and limits on U.S. action in Iraq, Mr. Obama is closely managing the new war in the Middle East in a way he hasn’t done with previous conflicts, such as the troop surge in Afghanistan announced in 2009 or the last years of the Iraq war before the 2011 U.S. pullout.

    In Iraq, Mr. Obama had delegated day-to-day management to Vice President Joe Biden.

    Explains a lot. Of course the downfall of Iraq isn’t all Biden’s fault, the majority of the responsibility lies on President Obama’s decision to put politics above the advice of generals and pull troops early.

    As a reminder, when Biden was tapped way back in 2008 to serve as Obama’s VP much of the reason given for choosing him was based on his “extensive” foreign policy experience. In his memoir, former Defense Secretary Robert Gates wrote, “I think he [Biden] has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”

    That extensive experience and whether it would serve in a useful, positive way was debatable years ago and it’s certainly debatable now.

  42. DiCaprio film magnifies the real climate change ‘monster’
    by TOM HARRIS AND BOB CARTER September 17, 2014

    In Carbon, Leonardo DiCaprio’s new film about the “climate crisis,” we are told the world is threatened by a “carbon monster.” Coal, oil, natural gas and other carbon-based forms of energy are causing dangerous climate change and must be turned off as soon as possible, DiCaprio insists.

    But he has identified the wrong monster. The real one is the climate scare – something DiCaprio promotes with his sensationalist, error-riddled movie. That is the real threat to civilization.

    Carbon is the first of four films that DiCaprio planned to release in the weeks prior to the United Nations’ Climate Summit 2014, to be held in New York City September 23. If Carbon is any indication of what the rest of the series will be like, the public needs to brace itself against still more mind-numbing global warming propaganda.

    DiCaprio repeatedly uses the “carbon pollution” and “carbon poison” misnomers – when he’s really talking about carbon dioxide (CO2), the plant-fertilizing gas that is essential for all life on Earth. But in addition to that deception, DiCaprio’s film is based on a myth: that CO2 from human activities is causing catastrophic climate change.

    The Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) lists thousands of scientific papers that either debunk or cast serious doubt on this popular though misguided notion.

    Oregon-based physicist Dr. Gordon Fulks explains that the climate scare has “become a sort of societal pathogen that virulently spreads misinformation in tiny packages like a virus. CO2 is said to be responsible for global warming that is not occurring, for accelerated sea level rise that is not occurring, for net glacial and sea ice melt that is not occurring, for ocean acidification that is not occurring, and for increasing extreme weather that is not occurring.”

    Fulks is right. DiCaprio’s film is just another vector for spreading the virus.

    According to NASA satellites and ground-based temperature measurements, global warming ceased in the late 1990s, some 18 years ago. And yet, CO2 levels have risen almost 10% since 1997, a figure that represents an astonishing 30% of all human-related emissions since the industrial revolution began. These facts contradict all CO2-based climate models, upon which nearly all global warming concerns are founded. Similarly:

    * Rates of sea-level rise remain small and are even decelerating; over recent decades they have averaged about 1 mm/year as measured by tide gauges and 2-3 mm/year as inferred from “adjusted” satellite data. That works out to a mere 4 to 12 inches per century, which is hardly a cause for alarm.

    * Satellites also show a greater expanse of Antarctic sea ice now than at any time since space-based measurements began in 1979. During this period, Arctic sea ice has remained well within historic bounds and fluctuations, dating back centuries.

    * The NIPCC’s March 2014 Biological Impacts report explains that the minute decline in alkalinity of the oceans projected by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s speculative computer models is small compared with the daily and seasonal changes that marine organisms already experience. Neither the IPCC nor the NIPCC forecasts that human CO2 emissions will cause oceans to become acidic in the coming centuries. They have become ever so slightly less alkaline over recent decades, but they are still very far from becoming acidic.

  44. COMMENTS FROM TED NUGENT……

    Quite honestly, I’m not shocked at all that so many apathetic Americans are not shocked over the ISIS voodoo Muslim monsters beheading people.

    The dumbing down of America has been on the runaway fast-track for more than 50 years and counting, just in time to brainwash unsuspecting sheep into voting for an America-hating Muslim community organizer dedicated to the fundamental transformation of the greatest nation on earth into some “social justice” hellhole.

    These same comfortably numb, clueless souls couldn’t tell you what the Bataan Death March was, either. I can guarantee you they never heard of the Rape of Nanking, or the Trail of Tears, or that Nazi jackboots bludgeoned Jewish children to death with the buttstocks of their rifles to determine how many blows it would take before they die so they could make lampshades out of their skins.

    So many are dumbed down just enough to unleash their hero Saul Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals” destructo derby on honest guitar players, or anyone else who dares to expose their evil plan to wreck America.

    To witness roving reporters on the streets of America ask people basic questions about critical issues and occurrences is an abject lesson in engineered buffoonery. Ignorance is bliss all right, suicidal bliss when you dare ignore the depth of evil at the hands of demonic beheading, women enslavers and “honor killing” voodoo zombies.

    By the way, Islam is the religion of peace, yeah and Shariah law is compatible with the Ten Commandments, and I’m a gay pirate playing electric accordion on a Lawrence Welk cover,

    Sometimes the entertainment world does make sense out of things. Thank you Ted.

  45. If my memory serves me correctly…

    In the British colonies of America, we didn’t get an opportunity to vote on whether we wanted freedom and Independence or not in 1776…..thank God for that…but I can say without reservations that I would have favored Sam Adams, Patrick Henry, and John Hancock in that matter.

    We were not given the opportunity to vote, so we took our Independence by force and….thank God for that too.

    The Scotch blood that runs in my veins says today to vote….YES…we shall soon see, the polls are closed and the counting begins.

    If the vote is NO…then the people have spoken and so mot it be…if the vote is YES then the people have also spoken and their voice has been heard…

    Either way, Scotland is a winner.

  46. cabbyaz — Ever heard of the expression, “stupid like a fox?” It takes everyone off guard if they think you are just stupid. Then we underestimate the intelligence of the one acting so stupid.

    I think Obama has been playing that game all along, like Adolf Eichman, who pretended to be just a clog in the vast machinery of the state. He was playing stupid like a fox, too. He even took in Hannah Arendt who wrote at his trial of the “banality of evil.” But new evidence from newly discovered writings of Eichman shows he was a dedicated Nazi who knew exactly what he was doing. He was one of the masterminds behind the “final solution” and the death camps.

    I believe Obama wants to destroy Israel and wants Shia Islam to be vindicated. He will assist the Sunni jihadists when it is to Iran’s advantage, such as the overthrow of Sunni leaders cooperative with the US and/or Israel. When it is not to Iran’s advantage or if they become a threat to Shiites, they must be contained.

    Obama has gotten a lot of mileage appearing to be incompetent and “stupid” at times. The Left tries to cover up and the Right is taken in, seeing Liberals in general as lacking sense. I see him as having a definite agenda and quite competent in carrying it out.

  47. OUT OF THER MOUTHS OF IDIOTS…COMES THE TRUTH…

    HER BRAIN IS ABOUT THE SIZE OF A HUMMINGBIRDS ASS….

  48. our one eyed leader….

  49. 85% and better are turning out to vote in Scotland…..

    If we could muster these numbers in America, we could rid ourselves of this garbage we now have in office.

  50. Dear Abby:

    I am a crack dealer in Beaumont , Texas , who has recently been diagnosed as a carrier of HIV virus. My parents live in Fort Worth . One of my sisters lives in Pflugerville and is married to a transvestite. My father and mother have recently been arrested for growing and selling marijuana. They are financially dependent on my other two sisters, who are prostitutes in Dallas . I have two brothers: one is currently serving a life sentence at Huntsville for the murder of a teenage boy in 1994. My other brother is currently in jail awaiting charges of sexual misconduct with his three children. I have recently become engaged to marry a former prostitute who lives in Longview . She is a part time ‘working girl’.

    All things considered, my problem is this. I love my fiancee and look forward to bringing her into the family. I certainly want to be totally open and honest with her.

    Should I tell her about my cousin who supports Barack Obama for President?

    California’s first cases of a virus that has been spreading across the country were confirmed Thursday by the state’s chief health official.

    Four cases of enterovirus D68 have been confirmed, all in Southern California. One was in Ventura County; three others were in San Diego County.

    Dear Worried About Your Reputation

    Your cousin’s support for Obama is the least of your problems…so I think it would be wise to fess up and tell your fiancee about the foolishness of your cousin, and if you voted for the village idiot, then admit your stupidity. I recommend you be frank and open to her about this matter.

    Now about the other things you mentioned…it sounds like you are a normal, unhealthy all-American male. So if you want to discuss those small things you mentioned such as your crack connections and dealings, your incurable HIV problem, your sisters deep love for a transvestite, your mom and dad’s income producing illegal farming skills, the exciting and dangerous night life of your sisters, and the petty childlike conduct of your unruly brothers then please do so….but It will probably be no concern to your soon to be bride as long as you don’t ask about her past life……..if you decide to remain silent, then of this stuff will all come out at the first family reunion she attends.

    However you may consider how you are going to explain your HIV positive problem when she has her first blood test…and it would be advisable for you to buy some bullet stopping body armor and also lock up all the weapons in your house.

    It would also be advisable to learn how to sleep with one eye open, because the scorn of a woman knows no bounds……super glue is cheap and very effective…so is a butcher knife……

    Otherwise, I wish you well in the future life with the love of your life

    Dean M.,
    I cannot disagree with your above statement, it is just that I see many facets. To me he is the perfect enigma, but regardless of what his inward motivations are, the end result is the same, and that is he is destroying our country and would eliminate Israel. He is definitely political through and through and is happier on the campaign trail and golf course than anywhere else, not to mention other activities that are indecent. Do you think we will see the day when he is no longer in power? Sometimes I wonder.
