Obama Ready To “Shutdown” 16 U.S. States

obama UN

 


It has never happened before in the history of the United States. We The People are watching a political game of chess unfold from our nations leaders and are on the very brink of a financial catastrophe like no other since our nations founding. When and if this occurs in just a mere 11 days, on October 17, President Obama is not looking to fix it but rather “shut down” or terminate the charter of 16 U.S. States!

The train wreck that was predicted with the Affordable Care Act, AKA Obamacare, is being scheduled. Our national debt clock is ticking down like a time bomb. October 17th, for the first time in U.S. History, we may default on our loans. Not a joke.  October 17th is when the check to the outstanding accounts that we borrowed from to fund our Federal Reserve comes due to countries like China who President Obama borrowed over a Trillion dollars from.

Imagine if you will:

The sequence of events would likely go as follows…

Within seconds of news that the United States missed a payment, almost simultaneously, the stock market and the U.S. dollar would plummet in value.

A super-spike in interest rates would follow in short order.

A gallon of milk would suddenly cost upwards of $100.

A loaf of bread, $44.

A gallon of gasoline, upwards of $1,000.

In a panic to protect their inventories, business owners would shutter their doors, triggering widespread looting and chaos.

Then, within an hour later, the federal government would issue emergency notification that its disaster map is in effect.

“The United States of America would look dramatically different,” says renowned global analyst, Karim Rahemtulla, adding that “not every state will survive.”-Town Hall

Town Hall reports some interesting comments from the Secretary of Treasury, Jack Lew, on this subject.

“If we have insufficient cash on hand, it would be impossible for the United States of America to meet all of its obligations,” said Treasury Secretary, Jack Lew, on Wednesday.

What our treasury secretary is hinting at is bigger then anything we could imagine and an almost doomsday scenario for the United States being planned out by President Obama and his administration. How serious is the threat? Well it is serious enough for the NSA, Department of Homeland Security, and the Federal government to put contingency plans in place completely annexing 16 states and redrawing the federal United States Map.

The Federal Government has put into place contingency plans for if this happens implementing a virtual “government shutdown” of 16 states. Which 16 states? Well that depends on the map, as two are in play. One shuts down the biggest welfare states, the other redraws the map of the Civil War!

Is your state on the map to be annexed?

illinois-welfare-percentage

 

This map shows the biggest TANF, or federal funds to low income families, recipients. This is one of the biggest drains on the government borrowing from the Social Security and Medicare tax income that is received since the 1996 reform. Dark blue indicates the biggest percentage per population that receives these funds.

According to CNBC and the National Counsel of State Legislatures (NCSL) the top 15 states to be victims of Obama’s government shutdowns to punish the people would be: 15. Oregon, 14. Pennsylvania, 13.  Michigan, 12. Rhode Island, 11. Indiana, 10. New Mexico, 9. Washington, 8. Minnesota, 7. New York, 6. District of Colombia (not a state but one of the highest per capita welfare recipients), 5. Vermont, 4. Massachusetts, 3. Tennessee, 2. Maine, 1. California. The 16th state could be a choice from any of the darker blue states from Virginia, Florida, Alaska, etc.

This could also be drawn up by the 2012 census of Household Median Income which would pretty much redraw some old battle lines and old wounds of our Nation.  This list would included from lowest to highest: 16. Mississippi, 15. West Virginia, 14. Arkansas, 13. Kentucky, 12. Alabama, 11. Tennessee, 10. Louisiana, 9. South Carolina, 8. New Mexico, 7. Oklahoma, 6. Idaho, 5. North Carolina, 4. Montana, 3. Florida, 2. Missouri, 1.Ohio.

Basically the bread basket of America. It would be agriculture verses industry. The rest of the southern states are not far behind on that list. We can record government interference with the farm industry and recent flooding, droughts, and natural occurrences for the gap.  The one missing from the list as a major player in industry in the old Confederate States has a plan that makes this even bigger.

Republic of Texas

 

Texas Governor Rick Perry (R) made no secret since 2009 his feelings on if the United States Federal Government and the republic collapsed what his feelings were. It is no secret that Texas is a big battleground state and one of the industry leaders with even a slot in the World Economy.

This year, the Attorney General of Texas, Gregg Abott, signed a contingency plan that he would help the Texas Nationalist Movement in the event of an economic collapse to restore the Republic of Texas to the full glory of the nation it once was. This has led to some serious debate with constitutional lawyers as if it was even possible since the civil war. But Texas remains one state that is still classified as a “Republic” and is one of the only states that can fly its flag at the same level as the US flag.

This prompted legislation in Oklahoma from the Oklahoma House and Senate and was signed off on by Governor Mary Fallen (R) to also leave the US in the event of a catastrophe. It seems that Oklahoma would join its sister state in leaving and they are on the list of the 16 states that would be cut if President Obama does this by wealth.

Louisiana is flirting with the idea and Arkansas as well. Parts of Colorado (considering that they had the first re-call election and replaced legislatures for the first time in history during a term) and New Mexico are also lining up with the idea . Could we see the rise of the Republic of Texas again?

How credible is the threat? Well there are several things that makes this doomsday scenario possible. Number one, the government already has the contingency plan in place and President Obama signed off on the executive order already.

We have the truckers shutting down the dollar on October 11-13 to get their attention and demand impeachment. We have the banks threatening to follow suit in retaliation. Instant market flux or maybe market crash.

The powers that be stand to make money on this, in fact they are routing for it:

“It’s piling into very specific global markets,” says Karim Rahemtulla, author of the bestselling book, Where in the World Should I Invest?

“Certain insiders will get rich off of this event. It happens in every crisis dating as far back to the Depression. You just need to know where to put your money,” Rahemtulla adds.

Next, The Blaze reported while we were writing this article that Speaker John Boehner now states that if President Obama continues to negotiate that we will default on the National Debt.  Here is the video that they are talking about:

It is bad enough to get Speaker Boehner to cuss in another speech directly to the White House of “This Is NOT some damn game”!

Here is the situation in a nut shell, IF the President comes to the table and negotiates, then we raise the debt ceiling; we risk a credit downgrade again in our US History, the dollar weakens, and we risk another catastrophic market collapse.  However, the United States stays intact, and we can possibly end the insanity as of late.

If that doesn’t happen, then see the doomsday scenario set in place for us all. We have his excuse to declare martial law and rip the United States to pieces.

Either way, if your Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, Independent, or not affiliated with any party, the final outcome of October 17th, 2013, does not look good.  Check Mate.

    Since when does the President have the power to shut down a state? I have never heard of this. I have heard of kings being able to disband parliments. I know that the states could voluntarily withdraw from the union as they did during the Civil War but for a President to just shut a state down out of spite is unheard of.

  • Teacher needs a raise

    “under the constitution, states should be able to craft their own plans…” Mitt Romney. I agree with Mitt Romney on this. When the ACA is fully implemented, my students parents, who now get totally free healthcare for their children, will be penalized for not purchasing the overpriced subsidized plans that are still not affordable. It’s going to make their situations worse, not better. Right now, one of my single parents gets her healthcare through her employer and her two children get free “soonercare” insurance. Her children both require monthly medications that she cannot afford. It’s a disaster.

  • Carry

    Obama signed an Executive order he can take over anything he wishes…during peace time..it was an old order but he changed the word “War Time” to Peace Time..and under any condition he desires…

  • mims5

    I think he thinks he is a king……but how he is acting is like a dictator….Demanding etc……He is NOT acting like a president.

  • Jusitn

    Is there any evidence of this agreement between Gregg Abbot has any agreement with the TNM? I figure that would have made news, at least locally.

  • David Fullerton

    I don’t think this president will follow the rules,he thinks he is king and will do as he pleases.He blocked the memorials,the grand canyon,mt. Rushmore,and even the ocean around Florida.He has been building his own little Army DHS so yes i think he will try to do what ever his brain thinks of

  • David Fankhauser

    This President has relied a lot on the Executive Order. I hope that the use of the Executive Order can somehow be curlailed. The way I see it, it is an illegal way to bypass the Congress if the President doesn’t like something.

  • Brian Davis

    We need to get ALL of America back to a Republic, not this broken system called democracy. Democracy leads to oligarchy.

  • Quintin Schlosser

    So when are we as “American” people gonna stand up for what we know is right in our hearts and impeach this fool. Remember all the talk of him being the anti-christ, well geuss what its looking pretty real now. He has stooped so low to make it so that we can’t even go and see one of the greatest american man-made mouments in the U.S., Mount Rushmore, and has the nerve to pay people to go out and cone of area’s off the highway and roads so that American’s cant see it. Get out of the White House already, bullying people into believing your idea’s is not the american way, Obama Care is nothing but a scam for the government to make some tax money to line their own pockets,
    I dont care how long he still has in his term if we don’t stand against him now we’re all fucked the rich and poor alike. He is the worst mistake this country has ever made. GET RID OF HIM NOW, we as the american people have the right to look out for what is right for ourselves and our families, stop letting the government (Obama) make your decision’s for you. We as american’s tried to impeach Clinton for a sex scandal but we let a moron like Obama try and put us further into debt and screw the whole country over because of some bullshit medical scam like this.

  • patrickscafe

    If Obama does declare martial law, or any other of these actions, will congress act as the elected representatives of Americans and immediately remove him from office? Or will the citizens quickly band together and march on Washington D.C?

  • Curtis Shipman

    Yea and so is shutting down fedral parks that have been paid for by the people through taxes David.

  • Orpin

    @Brandon Walker: You’d have a little credibility if you’d used the proper version of “you’re” in the last paragraph. When you don’t take the time to use acceptable writing, you lose everyone (or should.)

    Besides, for Texans, the “Doomsday Scenario” is a Paradise. I call it a Win.

  • Mr. Anonymous

    The author of this article really doesn’t know what he’s talking about.. $1,000 for a gallon of gasoline? $100 for a gallon of milk?…over exaggerating much?

    I HIGHLY, no I GUARANTEE they will raise the debt ceiling. They won’t let this ponzi scheme fall apart just yet.

  • Cynthiac

    Obama thinks he is a damn king and everyone should bow down to him. I am glad I live in Texas because we can tell him to go straight to hell. I just don’t understand how he is allowed to continue to destroy this country, and he still has idiots out there that will follow him to Hell if he told them to. I hope the truckers and bikers that are headed to Washington Oct 11-13 can get something done, we need a change. I wish I could go but since I can’t I will do my part to stay home and not spend any money on those days.

  • Larry Johnstone

    An Executive Order is a legal order for the people who work in the Executive Branch of Government.
    Problem is Americans will accept it as if Congress passed it as law…and never have.
    That means nothing when the people give him what he wants even if its an illegal order when he tries to apply it to the people as if it is law.
    He is a fraud, but people treat him as if he genuine…that is the real problem

  • DisgustedWithGOP

    Obama has the lowest executive order rate than any other President in 100 years other than Cleveland.

  • Sas0924

    He’s acting like a petulant child! Very “mature” behavior from the so-called “President” of the biggest nation in the free world! I’ll be the lets it fall off the cliffs, and then blames the GOP! Have you ever noticed that when things go wrong, he always points the finger at someone else……NEVER THE KING ALMIGHTY FAULT! He’s an evil, arrogant, America hating man. Flat out: OBAMA DOES NOT CARE what happens to the United States, His only concern is who to blame it on! As long as his “agenda” for America passes, he just doesn’t care! Dictator, King, Slimeball, Bully!!

  • Ty

    When are people going to actually read the US Constitution and realize that we the people can completely remove everyone from office and institute a new Government? There is a provision for it IN the US Constitution…and it’s what we need to do.

  • DisgustedWithGOP

    That was not on order by the President. A contingency plan prepared in 2011 — the last time a shutdown loomed — said all 401 of the country’s national parks would close and cease activities except for those necessary to respond to emergencies. Without federal employees to oversee the parks it is a liability risk to allow people on to the land. State owned parks are not affected…only parks that require federal funds to function.

  • maybefree

    Let it happen. I’m tired of the games and lies. The only thing they’re not taking into account, The states that they want to retain may want nothing to do with them either. Maybe this will be what it takes to wake the people up.

    Well David, I am a veteran and I know plenty of others that think as I do, the oath I sworn when I became a solder had no expiration date. if need be I will fight to preserve my country and the Constitution of the United States of America and in the words of the oath against all enemies both foreign and domestic. If it come to that then I will because I did not serve for it to be torn apart for nothing but some man’s whim.

  • Corey Fox

    Clearly this is a tea-party funded webpage because all of you sound ridiculous. Most of you are elderly people who do not know how to run this country. Let the young people take over, we can handle it from here. Obviously this nation cannot be any more soiled by you and your fixated values and underhanded morals. Let new ideas flow from new people and I guarantee this situation will be resolved. The government is currently filled with bureaucratic non-sense from baby boomers who can barely wipe their own arse yet they can run the country… I’m tired of this – you have tried to mold the millennial’s to your form fitted ideas from centuries ago, and it’s not working! Reform is near!

  • guyzino

    Last paragraph, it’s “you’re”, not “your”. Good article though.

  • andrew

    He “shut down” the memorials, grand canyon, and mt. Rushmore because those are federally run properties and they needed to close them to save money. just like you don’t keep paying for a cellphone if you’re going in debt: you’re going to close the account until you’re in better financial condition to pay it again.

  • Eric Wilks

    This is why we need all the states to declare their State Militias active and available, so we can defend against this DOMESTIC TERRORISM. Remember this people? A well-armed citizenry is the best form of Homeland Security and can better deter crime, invasion, terrorism, and tyranny.

  • MsMadDog51

    He’s spending more money putting up barricades and closing facilities that aren’t Federally funded than it would cost to keep some of them open. Not to mention the fact that he is closing some areas that cost nothing to operate due to State funding or civilian volunteers or areas where there isn’t even any manpower required! He is throwing a damn temper tantrum like a 2 year old child and needs his ass whooped!

  • plaintired

    He’s spending more guarding the closed Memorials than we did when they were open. And your analogy about cell phones – I’ll bet none of the millions of so called Obamaphones have been turned off, so don’t tell us about “going in debt”!

  • MsMadDog51

    But with the most damaging effects to this Nation!

  • Alyson Perry

    You just sound like an under educated liberal idiot. Why change something that worked? It’s all of the reform bull shit that got us here in the first place. And this is coming from a millennial, so hold your ‘oh, you must be old’ bull shit.

  • Alzina Kress

    This is his plan, the only way, he can declare marshal law is to have everyone rioting in the streets, looting, etc, what he doesn’t plan on is that several million people, including military are sick of his bullshit, he will fail, he will fall, just like bin laden and Hussein. It is time for us to stand against him, if our governor’s do not want to stand up to him, then we need to remove him from office and put someone in there that will. He thinks of us as complacent cows in a field, his every move ridicules us as Americans, he doesn’t care about our health no more than he cared how bin laden died , he was competition, he wanted him dead.

  • Ben Flores

    Theres one thing i learned from this the more Obama does a poor job the more united we get cause thsi is probably one of the few things we can all agree on that were not split up on him being a bad president i mean somebody plz name one person who actually thinks hes the best president and is leading the country in the right direction.

  • Diane

    Calm down, folks. Nothing is gonna happen.

  • Chuck

    Technically, he has done nothing illegal. That is the first step.

    Clinton was impeached, not for a sex scandal as you claim, but for committing perjury when asked *about* sex, under oath, which IS a crime. It was the trigger event which allowed the rest to be set in motion.

    Distasteful as Obama’s actions have been, please specify what he (not someone in his administration) has done that is actually illegal. Even Benghazi is unlikely to qualify for that specific requirement.

    Even worse, Impeachment does not mean removal from office. The two are related, but are distinctly different processes.

  • Chuck

    Frankly, I’m amazed that there is not a continuous circle of protesters surrounding the White House and Congress, 24 hours a day, every day.

    Oh that’s right…it’s now illegal to protest in the presence of almost anyone in government.

  • Chad Lazzari

    Think “Clinton,” could help with this situation. Political solutions are often not revealed to the general public however sometimes they are the only solutions. The legacy of the Bush era will never have a quick fix. The public and the Senate will always have the ultimate decision even with a crazy executive order. Doubt this is even close to the real story.

    don’t play games? what a farce. when gw. was racking up debt at a record rate, while building schools, roads, and industries in forign countries they all towed the line. now that obama is spending about the same here , in this country, they are throwing a fit. if it wasn’t for the spending we are still on the line for in foreign wars, and countries, we would probably be about at the same spending levels bush had. it is really unfortunate that we had to worry about overseas problems at the same time we had to deal with an economic crash here at home. I am not happy with all this debt. let me stress that, but i sure am glad it is at least being spent here. it is really too bad that the dems didn’t use this idea of holding our economy hostage when they controlled the congress with a republican in office. i am sure we could have saved some lives. it seems they have an understanding that regardless of if the money is being spent the way they like it or not, our country has to pay its bills. the republicans are the ones that are trying to deny that legislation has been passed, and according to our constitution, must be funded unless repealed. i don’t like obamacare, because it was written by the insurance industry, that being said, a large part of the concepts in it like the individual mandate are republican concepts, but well. you have to pay the bills. no questions asked. that is what obama is saying, and i agree. dems never did it to the republicans, so why is it happening now? they are all despots.

    Stole money from retired teachers and police officers

    During the Chrysler bankruptcy, Obama violated the Fifth Amendment and more than 150 years of bankruptcy law by illegally treating secured creditorsworse than unsecured creditors. Some of these secured creditors were retired teachers and police officers from Indiana. Richard A. Epstein, a law professor at New York University School of Law, wrote, “Upsetting this fixed hierarchy among creditors is just an illegal taking of property from one group of creditors for the benefit of another, which should be struck down on both statutory and constitutional grounds.” Todd Zywicki, Professor of Law at George Mason University School of Law, wrote that Obama’s treatment of secured creditors was “dangerous to the rule of law.” The Economist wrotethat Obama’s actions could “establish a terrible precedent. Bankruptcy exists to sort legal claims on assets. If it becomes a tool of social policy, who will then lend to struggling firms in which the government has a political interest?” Francis Cianfrocca, the CEO of Bayshore Networks, wrote that Obama’s actions were “an astonishingly reckless abrogation of contract law that will introduce a new level of uncertainty into business transactions at all levels, and make wealth generation more difficult going forward… An extraordinary uncertainty has been created when the most powerful man in the world can rewrite contracts and choose winners and losers in private negotiations as he sees fit. Since this is an unquantifiable uncertainty, and not a quantifiable risk, its effect on business and investor confidence will be large and unpredictable. As in the 1930s, a time when government also cavalierly rewrote private contracts, the prudent approach for business will be to invest minimally and wait for another administration.

    I agree with all of you that the man is very dangerous, but he is only a puppet. He has a master. THAT is who we need to be truly afraid of. The only reason Obama has thus far gotten away with all the crap he’s pulled(no real birth certificate, no school records, bogus social security card, giving funds to our enimies, trying to force feed us this ludicris ObamaCare insurance of his(which includes some very scary things indeed such as chip implants that have a GPS in it and giving child protective services the right to forceably enter your home and take your children if you have alcohol, weapons or have grounded your child, or just taking funds right out of your bank account if you refuse to sign up for the insurance) and now closing down our nation’s memorials). If he didn’t have some VERY VERY powerful person or persons behind him he would NEVER have gotten this far out of control. I believe we are in for some of the darkest days this country has ever known. I also believe that it is going to take almost every man woman and child to bring us back to the United States that we have known and loved for so many many years and have fought for to be the kind of country you can be proud to live in. We are going to have to make some very hard and dangerous decisions in the near future. Are we willing to fight for our country or are we willing to just sit back and let these people take it away from us and live on the crumbs they are willing to throw to us? I for one—will fight for my right to be a FREE AMERICAN and not have my Constitutional rights that my forefathers gave their lives to see that we would have taken from me and my children,grand children, great grand children, and so on. STAND UP AMERICA—-FIGHT FOR YOUR COUNTRY—because its’ for damn sure NOBODY else is going to do it for you!

    Clinton was impeached by the House on Dec 19, 1998 on one count of perjury to a Grand Jury & one count of Obstruction of Justice. It then went to the Senate where they only received 50 votes out of the 67 needed for removal from office.

    Andrew, buddy, those memorials don’t cost anything except once-in-a-while for
    maintenance or repair. There are no guards around them. So they aren’t saving anything by shutting them down. He shut them down out of spite, hatred of the American people, & just plain meanness. We are still in sequestration & the jackazz is spending extra money to PREVENT people from seeing them.

  • Tyler Stiles

    I can see this happening, however I believe the wording is a bit sensational. I’m sure IF it does take place it will be labeled as some sort of state debt consolidation where as one state is assimilated into another in order to settle its debt.
    Personally, Obama is not my favorite president, however to demonize and blame him for everything is a bit ridiculous. People need to get over the entire illusion of the left and right being somehow different. The true power lies with the individuals that run the banks that we borrow from. We haven’t had a real president since JFK.

    What we need to do is stop dividing ourselves along racial, religious, political, and moral lines. History has proven the best way to defeat any force is to divide and conquer.

    I think you mean while… not why. Also the fact that you think an amber alert can’t be placed for a missing child. The website that allows you to see them is down, but that doesn’t mean local police stations can’t send information to each other. Grow up and quit trying to fin ways to demonize a pawn. I am so so so sick of morons like you who are ignorant enough to believe that we wouldn’t be in this same exact position if say Mitt Romney was elected. THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS. They are all politicians, they all play golf together. They are all bought and paid for by the same corporations and mega banks. However, I will say that they are doing a wonderful job of keeping you blinded to that fact. Also, they are doing a wonderful job of keeping all of us AMERICANS divided so that we are more easily destroyed. I hope that America is destroyed by these idiots so that when we reclaim it no one will ever again be as ignorant as so many people like you are now.

    3000 Truckers will be there 11-13 with reasons to impeach. They will be going through the halls of Congress & giving them to all Reps & Sens. If Bam has the memorials blocked, I’m sure they will “unblock” them at that time. This is typical Bam throwing a tantrum because people found out what a bust Obamacare is & now is an albatross around his neck so he is stomping his feet & waving his hands while yelling waa, waa, waa! I hope you all know that Ocare also funds his private army that answers only to him & is just like Hitler’s brown shirts. The first class graduated a year ago & many since.

    “to restore the Republic of Texas to the full glory of the nation it once was.” I guess it is not a Texan writing this story. Texas was having a hard time after becoming a Republic. It was broke, and Sam Houston Fought hard to get Texas annexed to the States. Some countries did not want anything to do with Texas due to the slavery issue, Texas was a slave state. Hardly any glory days for Texas back then…

    When will you people realize that it ISN’T Obama? We haven’t had a real president since JFK. Do you REALLY believe that anything would be different if Romney or Mccain were elected instead? Especially when they are all bought and paid for by corporations and bankers? Do you REALLY believe that Americas problems are so shallow that they can be solved by removing one man from office? Do you know who would take Obama’s place if he were impeached? Do you have any idea at all? Joe Biden the Vice President would take over. Now ill go ahead and ask. Do you really believe that Joe Biden would change or do anything differently?
    What we the people need to be worried about is agreeing that while we may all disagree with each other the problem we all need to work on solving is how do we limit the power of corporations and banks to lobby our officials. I think we can all agree that anything that causes our officials to make decisions based on what is in the best interest of those corporations and banks instead of what is in the best interests of the people should be considered evil. We need to focus on taking congress off their pedestal. We need to limit terms for our congressmen, make their pay comparable to what a soldier would be paid. Don’t allow them to decide how much they should be paid, don’t let them exempt themselves from certain laws(Obamacare)etc. That is what we should be focused on

I cannot just sit here and let these people whom have sworn their souls away to King Obama destroy my daughters future. I will not see them as slaves with no rights because that is where this president and those that follow him are sending us and I really hope that those whom are still in the military remember their oath and not follow blindly to a kings tune.

  • Andrew Tucker

    It doesn’t cost the government anything for people to walk in the woods or go to the WWII memorial. It does cost them money to pay these police officers to stand there keeping people out.

    Furthermore, he has closed some PRIVATELY OWNED parks that actually paid fees INTO the government so the government is NOT getting that income.

    On top of that he has tried to shut down the Atlantic Ocean. How much money does the government spend to keep those fish alive and the waves churning? None. Yet he doesn’t want anyone going anywhere near it so he’ll send in the Coast Guard and US Navy to blockade ports and whatever else, at the cost of millions of dollars per day.

    This is the President who spent, in one stroke of a pen, more money than all prior Presidents combined and then said he cut spending. Bull shit. Stop defending him, you look stupid.

  • Lincoln

    Not paying attention are you ……. Although I agree with you on the fact that there one in the same ….. with the Amber Alert being shut down …. Yes the Alert is shut down the Local police departments unless they fund there own cannot use the Federal Amber Alert system ……. Since only a few local Police have there own system in place and also since the Amber Alert has been mandated by the Feds with it being Shut down …. we cannot see it …. in other words if the populas cannot see it the point of the Amber Alert system is Mute ….. According to my Local police station rendering it useless to us all …. I am Honored that My Local police station as opted to place flyers in place of the Alert system …. but that will deal with those missing Kids that are local to my town …..

    You must not have children.

I do agree that there really is no difference in a Rep and Dem, but I will sat there are a few fighting for us up there on both sides its just the majority have sold their souls to the king. Honestly anyone would have been better than Obama he and members of his cabinet have ties to the same people we have been fighting for years now one of them even put their symbol up on his website claiming it as his new symbol and nothing is done about it and yes I have researched it and it is true. We are not blind we are pissed off. Its the people who still follow this King and his court and even as far as defending them who are the blind and ignorant ones. And to hope that America is destroyed? I am ashamed of you, its people like you that are killing this country, to hope that your homeland your freedoms are destroyed is despicable.

He is the one refusing to negotiate and as the article says this is all part of his master plan to declare martial law and proclaim himself “king”!! I for one am glad to live in Texas and Welcome the day we leave the “states” and this domestic Terrorist behind!

    this is a list of Executive orders ( How Many were made by each president) ….. I think you need a clue mate …. I don’t like Obama but the truth will set you free not BS

  • Bobby J Clevidence

    You are so right and his re-election only proved one thing…..there is an over abundance of idiots who never should be allowed in the gene pool in this country!

  • Bobby J Clevidence

    It is Illegal and according to law the president is limited to so many executive orders per term and are only supposed to be used in extreme circumstances to protect or preserve the country in case of political gird lock and are time limited to so many days,these are not “permanent” laws as Obama seems to think they are!

  • Bobby J Clevidence

    You need to get your head out of your ass,or maybe it’s in Obama’s hard to tell the way you post…But one thing you make it very obvious that you are one of the idiots that voted this tyrant in and then re-elected him..Please do the country and the world a favor and stay away from the gene pool!! You are what is wrong with this country today,greedy want everything free and never have to work leech that has been “dumbed down” by the system and people you support so blindly

  • Bobby J Clevidence

    not to mention he shut that down and the parks but managed to keep his golf course open so he can play golf while the gov is shut down

  • Bobby J Clevidence

    You are WRONG!!! THings would be different with another President..and they are not all the same…Proof…Ted Cruz…Though I agree that most are puppets and the Amber Alert system is NOT a device between law enforcement agencies it is a public service announcement to alert the public so it can not be placed right now..An amber alert is also the quickest way to get all the details out to other agencies and the public at the same time as well as saving time..So as a public safety professional I am telling you that you are the moron to think shutting down the amber alert doesnt hurt saving kids because it will!!

  • Bobby J Clevidence

    yeah and to think we “impeached” Clinton over a blow job but can’t this fiend over war crimes,crimes against this country as well as treason..this is all unreal but the “money” of this country doesnt want him out cuz they are getting richer so we may never see impeachment

    Ive never cared to listen or bother with politics. I’ve always just done what I needrd to do. But obama is a terrorist who managed to get himself in to the presidents chair.

I picture a civil war happening and I am well trained and will definetly be picking my rifle up to remarry her when this shat pops off. And so will many many others.

  • Jeannine Huskey

    Here’s where Obama definitely crossed the “impeachment” line:

    He “waived” a law prohibiting our government from aiding a terrorist organization. This was due to the fact that he wanted to send arms to the Syrian rebels (who are becoming infiltrated more and more with Al Qaeda operatives).

    I declare that it is TIME for an Article V Convention, convened by our STATES to propose a Constitutional Amendment that would give the STATES the authority to impeach or “RECALL” one or more federal official(s). Article V is VERY CLEAR as a means for the STATES to propose amendments, but only with ratification by 2/3rds of the States. No such thing as a “runaway” convention when 2/3rds must ratify an amendment.

  • Christopher Richey

    But, they didn’t actually stop paying for anything. They even agreed to back-pay Federal employees. There is no “shut-down.” The question is what are they actually (immigration) doing while we are all debating this?

    No Kevin. Clinton WAS impeached which is the congressional equivalent to an indictment.

    Lavish trips, entitlement programs, obnoxious salaries, non-essential employees, all those items also need to be strangled to a screeching halt.
    De-fund and exterminate the IRS (as we know it today), and learn to work and pay bills this Nation incurs with a simple fair tax system ( http://www.fairtax.org ), walk away from the Federal Reserve AND our association with the U.N.
    Cut all ties that require the U.S. to send our hard-earned tax dollars away from this Country to overseas entities, re-structure the Farm Bill entitlements, refrain from foreign oil dependency, and the list could go on and on, including “pork” added into legislation that is being voted on.

    And who do you think has been dividing us since taking office in 2009? You say that we should not demonize him but when he does the work of those running things, he is a demon. Obama is the enforcer for the globalists and their subjugation of this nation. Sure, many presidents before him did their bidding as well (Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush Jr) but Obama is being used in a way that is more obvious than the other 3. Bush Jr. was a stooge that probably did not know what was going on while Sr., Clinton and Obama are complicit with Obama having been trained since childhood to destroy America. Again, he is a demon and should be portrayed as such. To support him is to continue the divide.

  • Ron Gilbert

    We are in the death throws of the Obama Administration. What happens when a body starts to die? It thrashes about violently. Obama knows that once the people learn the truth about what he is doing, it’s all over for him and his destructive agendas. If the House were truly for the people of this nation, we would have seen the defunding of Obama Care right after the Republicans took over. According to SCOTUS, they ruled that Obama Care cannot be a law due to several issues with it. It requires us to purchase from a 3rd party (Roberts said this was a no-no and ruled as such). It started in the Senate and according to the Constitution, all bills that generate revenue must start in the House. When SCOTUS ruled that it was a tax and not a law, it should never have seen the light of day due to one glaring fact, it was NEVER VOTED ON IN THE HOUSE AS A TAX! The Democrat run House in November of 2009 voted on it as a law. Once it was deemed a tax, it should have started all over again and been voted on all over again. These are not my words, these are from various Constitution experts starting with Dr. Howard Pease.

  • thisheart

    I agree with David that the gist of the article is sensationalist. Economic issues however can be a door through which dictators enter. I have recently been studying how Germans became Nazis, how Hitler — a small man with dreams of dictatorship got a foothold and relentlessly pushed open the door. I believe that the current globalists know the story well and are trying in essence to repeat it, albeit without the mistakes that ended Hitler’s reign. Hence my study. One of the resounding themes is that Germany had truly been suffering economically from the reparations that had to be made as a result of WWI. People were literally jobless, hungry and spiritually weak. Satan saw his oppportunity and took it. Also, as Tyler mentioned the country was divided allowing that crack for radical ideas. And as another person wrote, the military was the only hope, in this case, of preventing Nazism, but by the time it rose up it was essentially surrounded. Like Obama, Hitler received a huge show of support from the populace. Of course, many would regret their support but too late. Hitler had a small but passionate circle of supporters and had managed to charm many of the rich (is this sounding familar?). I believe if we study this particular piece of history, we will see the pattern being repeated. Maybe we can repeat what those did who stood their ground. Overall we all need to put our trust in Jesus Christ, and not a Constitution or the actions of individuals, or even ourselves.

  • Tamara179

    Keep telling yourself that. To even think that the government would think in such a similar way to the American public is a bit naive. Our National Parks make this country so much money it’s not even funny. But it’s not about ‘saving money” here. Since when had that ever been a concern of the government? I mean just a free weeks ago we had money to almost go to war with Syria. And while I realize even that was an illusion and this country is more in debt than we’ve ever been, you have to understand that this shutdown has nothing to do with money. It’s a huge pissing contest over power and control. A lot more going on behind the scenes than we realize. But the fact the Elites are guiding Obama to bring this country down is blatantly obvious and if you doubt that then your not paying attention.

    There is no ‘America’. It’s just a social construct. It isn’t race or ethnicity. It isn’t a common religion at least in the conventional sense. Considering the amount of immigration the last few decades it isn’t even a common language, history, or culture any more. It’s no more than a set of vague propositions whose meanings depend upon whom you ask and when you ask them. Paradoxically its proponents hold these propositions out to be universal anyway. There is no ‘America’. It’s just a social construct.

    I say rip it apart and allow the true nations present on this continent come into being.

    David I do not think its a matter of shutting down per say. I think rather is a defund issue. The city county and states collect taxes that are sent to federal who in turn redistributes where it goes.

    After reading some of the comments below I am amazed that people are placing the blame on one individual or one party. Just look back over the years. Each and everyone one of the parties and the president are to blame. ALL of them take care of their party and themselves. They ALL have thrown us all under the bus in favor of their interests. When you have representatives that pass laws that apply to us and not them or vice versa there is something wrong. They all have divided the congress and this country. We as voters are to blame too. We keep putting the very same ones back in office. The only way we are going to fix this is to vote everyone of the incumbents out and put new non lawyers in office. We need folks that have worked in the working place and that will truly represent the people and not the party or their self. If they do not do the job the first time, we the people need to vote them out. If you feel that you must vote for a certain party, then vote the incumbent out in the primaries, then vote for your party in November. We really need to eliminate the two parties and just have one party and elect people that works for the true betterment of our country which is representing us.

    Raising the debt ceiling will only postpone the trouble. It will return, and at ever-shorter intervals, until there is no more possibility of postponement. Further, the longer we wait to shut off government borrowing, the worse the eventual crash will be.

    There is one way to avoid the crash, but doing it will probably cause a major war. Congress can draft an Amendment repealing the provision of the 14th Amendment that says the public debt of the United States shall not be questioned. After the repeal is ratified, an Act of Congress can repudiate the entire national debt by legislation. Then, of course, foreign creditors will become angry enough to attack us. That’s when we must rely on our ability to deter those foreign creditors from military action, or else fight them and, by the results, make them wish they had not chosen to make war on us.

  • Ron Gilbert

    Obama in his own biography stated that his mentors since childhood were Frank Marshall Davis and several others who have been show to be experts in bringing down capitalism. Ergo given that Obama is now president, this was his influence in his childhood, combining the facts of what direction he is going and how he is giving away trillions of our dollars to foreign countries, I would say that this is trying to destroy our country.

    actually as a Texan I think it looks damn good. shut em down and keep them down.

  • Ron Gilbert

    These are open air monuments that people have to pay to attend. This generates money into the system and with him posting guards at them with no money coming in for them it now sucks more money from our coffers. He shut them down to try to hurt others and cause them to believe it was his enemy, the GOP, that caused this when in fact it was him and Reid that did this shutdown in the face of the GOP sending bill after bill to them to be signed that would have kept these places open. These bills were rejected by those narcissistic children not because, as they claim, they did not like the stipulations attached but because they wanted the shutdown to take place just like they initiated the sequester. Their goal is to continue the divide so that it is easier to control us.

  • samazf

    Because Obummer is throwing a temper tantrum because he’s not getting his way.

    Washington Politicians, you need to clean out your ears and lesson. 1. We the people do “blame” the the Democratic Party and Obama . 2. Obama thinks he’s King and the USA, does not have a king and never will. 3. Obama is acting like a spoil little brat that needs his ass whip. 4. Obama needs to listing to the people who he serves and we don’t want Obama care. I like almost everyone can’t afford OBAMACARE. It will not fix anything, just add to the mess. 5. We do need to fix health care I do believe that, but this will not work at all. So all of you need to sit down and come up with something that we the people can afford and live with. 6. I AND MOST PEOPLE STILL BELIVE OBAMA IS A TRAITOR. THAT HE HATES AMERICANS AND AMERICA AND WILL DO ANYTHING TO DESTROY US. I WILL ALSO ADD THAT HE DOING A HELL OF A GOOD JOB OF IT. PEOPLE LIKE HARRY REID IS HELPING HIM DO JUST THAT. 7. OBAMA IS INTENTIONALLY SHUTTING THE COUNTRY DOWN. HIM AND HARRY REID ARE PROVING THAT BY THEIR CONTINUAL REFUSAL TO COMPROMISE OR NEGOTIATE ON THE BUDGET.
    8. Last but not least, Obama is a compulsive pathological lier that has spent millions to hide his past the American public!

    Jesus David, what planet are you from? The WWII memorial is an open air Monument! Any other day you won’t find but one or maybe two park rangers near the entire mall in D.C.. You cut people from the EPA, DOE. You don’t close “AIR”. The closures cost more to shut down than it did to just leave the BarryCades in storage. They had a better security response at the Mall in W.D.C. than in Benghazi.

    Conclusion: Both major parties need to go. Just as the nation had to put up with 8 years of the Bush antics, we now have 8 years of dem antics except, we have a law in place that Rep and Conservatives do not like. I do not like the fact I have to pay for two unjust wars, and a party is whining about people having healthcare? Grow up and accept the law. Make changes after the fact. Vote 3rd party candidates. At least they will have some passion about being a statesman instead of being a tool to be bought off.

    Laughable. The cherry picked statistic of money spent on poor families is great. Yeah Oregon spends more on the poor than Texas does. And yeah that map makes it look like the liberal states are draining the coffers. But the real question if controlling costs would be, which states are net contributors to the federal government, and which states take more than they give? Check taxfoundation.org. Texas and Oregon are about even in federal spending per Tax dollar received. Overall though, the map is reversed. It is the red states that live off the largess of the blue states. It’s just that they don’t help their poor. So if you only look at spending on poor, their parasitism disappears.

  • Legatus legionis

    The Communist have gained the seats of power in America. They will not leave peacefully. Just look to history. You will note that the Communist always make war on their opponents. Obama is no exception. He longs for the time when he can exercise his Emergency Executive Orders. Can you hear it know. Obama, “I am implementing the EOs President Bush and Clinton put in place while they were President. I am declaring Martial Law and Federalizing the State’s Nation Guard. Don’t worry, I’m in charge.” Obama is a deceiver on the grandest scales. When the SHTF, look to your local Democrats. These are you enemies. Start to clean house locally. Shi….t rolls down hill, but the clean up begins from the bottom up.

    THE CALLING-CARD NARCISSIST

  • crazybaldhead

    the koolaid tastes a bit funky around here. last I heard, congress borrowed 1 trillion from china, under this administration, as well as the GW Bush administration. this isn’t a blue and red argument, it’s corporate control of politics. drives a lot of traffic to your website though, great for advertising revenue. the plan for martial law has been in place for decades (centuries?), and you’re acting like Obama invented it. sorry, gotta spit this koolaid out, plllbbthtthh

  • crazybaldhead

    bullsh*t. If staff isn’t available to deal with possible problems, it gets shut down. asking Obama to negotiate on legislation that was passed, and upheld by scotus is like your boss calling you in on Friday morning to negotiate how much he is going to pay you for the last two weeks.

  • crazybaldhead

    you have it backwards. Obama is following protocol and constitutional law is on his side. the tantrum is from the guy with the Boehner

  • crazybaldhead

    bullshit. you have a lot of different names on this comment string don’t you?

  • Denise Lynn Hemmingway

    I’m thinking that in a worse case scenario that a resurgent Republic of Texas maybe larger than the historical one. There are people in nearby states who would love to see their state join the Reborn Republic of Texas if the Nation goes down the path which President Obama seems willing to lead us.

  • crazybaldhead

    wait a minute, GW Bush spent $750 billion, in an emergency state, with virtually no discussion, on NOTHING!! he didn’t buy or purchase anything! It was just for propping up banks in 2008. You really equate providing benefits to the American people with that?

  • crazybaldhead

    you are batshit crazy

  • Ronald Reagan

    The real question is not about Obama’s powers, intentions or results of those actions. The real question is who comes up with this nonsense and why do you people believe it? Okay, that was two questions. But, when I was president, I screwed this country harder than Rush Limbaugh on a 10 year old Dominican boy. I let the illegals in, had congress raise the debt limit a bunch of time and nobody gave a shit about it. I think it was 17 times, but the memory was getting foggy and all that cocaine I did didn’t help. Which brings up another point – I was snorting coke off of hookers’ asses in the oval office while pushing through the “war on drugs” agenda, which costs way too much money and put tens of thousands of innocent people behind bars. But my friends go rich in the process. Oh, and for those of you blaming Obama for the shutdown, let me let you in on a little secret – Until congress puts a bill on his desk, it has nothing to do with it. If he vetos the bill, then you can blame him. Anyways, I’m back to fisting Nancy while watching TIp O’Neill felch Margret Thatcher. It’s not as vile as you think. Dumbass crackers.

  • Nonya

    You go George, way to ask the same question over and over after already getting an answer every time.

  • Laurie Wolford

    My concern with all of this, is once again stuff gets put out and people get scared that those who were so complacent when the shit was being gathered up, now that it’s hitting the fan and flying in every direction, they may find a voice. But: will it be the right one? You can’t cry and whine about a National Park being closed down due to the President’s temper tantrum and ask them to please get the government back up and running when the cost will be ours. The picture is much bigger than this. We must not cave to this. We are a military family and we have discussed at lengths the oath my boys took and where they stand in all of this. Every one of us feel our government needs to be replaced. Not in part, but completely. The biggest question of all: Does America really have the balls to stand up and take our country back from these tyrants? Only the future can see that answer. I would hope that the answer would be yes, but it ultimately it falls back on us for allowing it to get this far in the first place. I used to say when I was a firefighter that complacency kills and this is exactly what I see happening. The signs have been there for a long time. The enemy is among us.

  • Keely Shaper

He’s done ALOT OF SOMETHING, yet, nothing from all of those ‘bravehearts’! Just crickets chirping! It’s all just talk. You people aren’t going to do a damned thing, except sit there, in front of your screens, and spout your bravery. ALL OF YOU spewing your crap, and doing nothing. Our country is gone, and only because our nation turned into an Anus-Addicted, Penis-Craving, Godless, Abortion-Obsessed Sodom! The only one’s to blame, is YOURSELVES!

    Everyone must remember that during Marshal Law there are no elections. And in a state of Marshal Law the bone-head-in -chief can pretty much do what he wants as long as congress backs him and he can get the military behind him. Obama is a moron if he thinks that people will just stand by and let it happen, but we have to count the number of morons that re-elected him. So now everyone that voted for him, he is your president, not mine. And David, I also am a veteran and will stand behind my oath all the way to the grave.

    What everyone is failing to realize it that this isn’t Obama’s plan. The “New Boss” is same as the “Old Boss” and the “Bosses” before them. He is the figurehead, the scapegoat. He doesn’t have enough sense to do any of the things he is doing on his own. He is a puppet, like every President before him since Kennedy. It has been the plan since 1913 when the Central Bank was established to enslave America. Obama was just chosen to be the leader during the end game because he is such a polarizing figure. We’ve all been duped to go along with it!

    It would seem , if you studied on it you would see that the vast majority of “The People” do NOT want obamacare or any number of other programs he has initiated. They all agree his “cutting the deficit in half” actually meant he would triple it in 6 years. You say the republican mind is scary? The liberal democrat mind is down right frightening. Makes my skin crawl to see those mindless zombies blindly following a despot in the making. Now he says that raising the debt ceiling won’t raise the debt? One thing I have learned after 50 years of watching politics is that if you give the government access to more money they will find a way to spend it.

    SOTUS upheld it as a tax…but in so doing, they have declared it unconstitutional, as all revenue bills MUST originate in the HOUSE, and ACA originated in the SENATE.

    I am as conservative as you can possibly imagine but this piece is utter nonsense and I wish I hadn’t read it.

  • Stuart Perkins

    And the HOUSE has the duty to fund or not fund government programs as it sees fit. He who holds the purse strings ultimately makes the decisions as to what is done, and since the HOUSE allegedly represents the people, it should be so. The people have said don’t fund it, and the HOUSE is doing as we wish…if they will hold to it.

    Changes that will very likely take place shortly after The United States of China goes into default:

    A glass of water = 100 million dollars
    Blowjobs = 6 billion dollars

    average 2 door car = 8 trillion dolares (notice that its now in Spanish,
    because English would cost upwards of 3 gazillion dolares.)

    Now, wait a minute. We have enough daily incoming taxes that we could pay the service on the debt, though not much else. If your doomsday scenario plays out it is because Obama refused to pay the debt first. Which is a horrible position for him because that scenario would spark the second Civil War, and if that gets sparked, his head is on a pike on the North Lawn. That would really put a cramp in his golf game. But seriously, even if he thinks he can rule it is better to go all emperor Palpatine and keep the people playing the game. This is throwing the game out the window, I don’t think that will happen because he values himself to highly. So I guess I’m a skeptic on this “doomsday” FOR THE RECORD, AND THE NSA AGENT READING THIS POST: I DO NOT IN ANY WAY CONDONE NOR ENDORSE VIOLENCE AGAINST ANY ELECTED OFFICIAL, INCLUDING THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

    I am sorry liberals but this President is leading you into a Civil War. We dont want it. Cant fathom it. Do not like the idea of having to attack our own neighbors, families, and fellow citizens, but there it is. President Fraud has intentionally tanked this economy and created chaos for this purpose – to declare martial law, promote insurrection and take dictatorial powers. It is not going to last. I would remind every oath taker in this nation that they either respect their oath to the people & protection, OR they face trial with this illegal administration at the upcoming US version of Nuremburg. If you don’t know what that is, look it up children.

    Andrew, when you grow up and hopefully wise up you can come back and post your ideas of wisdom. Meanwhile, Obama is also closing parts of the ocean, some rivers and lakes, some farms, inns, STATE parks, and many other things that are NOT federal property, and even things that are but he does not have the right to close because they are ALWAYS open, all day every day. What he really needs to close is all colleges so the liberal professors would not be able to destroy the minds of our young people anymore!

    Thanks Folks for posting. Americans/WE THE PEOPLE are on the same page, know this. Here’s a spin I must share, as all information is helpful for us. Remember, the Federal Government needs our money, the State’s money. In most cases, we do not need their’s. Any State not receiving Federal money, will nullify paying Federal taxes. If a large number of State’s do not help the Federal ‘government’, then they will collapse without our funding. Succession, Interposition, and Nullification, will destroy big ‘government’. Most Americans are as David said: Patriots. Most Military will stand for WE THE PEOPLE and the Constitution, not the Plutocracy in D.C.. I am somewhat surprised Americans have not marched on D.C. already. Let the Liberal States have what they got coming. It will be painful, but let the Plutocracy even keep the name. At least we can then institute a Constitutional Republic again and restore Freedom and Liberty. But if the Country does split, we will still be the Americans. Possible with a name such as Liberated States of North America. At any rate, the State’s need to Nullify, any attempts by the Plutocracy, our Governors and Sheriffs need to know this, and how to react to this treason by D.C..

  • Luke Meter

    Let’s face reality, is this truly a bad thing? Americans have been an irrevocably divided people ever since the ’60′s when the first liberal congealed out of some filthy hippy’s used bong water and immediately set about infecting other weak minded, lazy people with the plauge known as liberalism and replacing American values with the communistic perversions liberals call progress. Why should we, as freedom loving patriots, suffer existing alongside (and PAYING for) the parasitic human garbage on the left when it is blindingly clear that we can no longer co exist as one people?

    I say give the liberals their own country and let them run it as they see fit. If what they spout on the internet is any indication of how their country will turn out, it will be a place where everyone is on 100% welfare, nobody works, the government has all the power and authority and gives and takes freedoms as they wish, every drug known to man is freely legal and available, abortion is completely unrestricted and there are no limits to which term you can choose to kill your unborn, homosexuality is the preferred orientation and any straight people are treated with scorn, morals are illegal, religion is illegal, and Christianity is punishable by death. You know, pretty much just plain old communism, but don’t tell them that, they hate being called what they are.

  • karacek

    Obamacare is not about health care, but Control. Our Bill of Rights will be abolished under this egregious un-Constitutional law, and other provisions would make our Constitution moot! Congress also knows all this; well, those in office for more than 2 terms. That’s why McCain and other senate traitors are bashing Ted Cruz and those who stand with him. Ted is going against “The Establishment”!
    We the people need Amendment V for the Grand Jury of We The People…the 4th branch of government and the most powerful. I fear a Con Con could get out of control! If we had followed all the statues of our Constitutional Republic, we would not be under the control of these banksters. There would be NO private central bank, no fiat money…but gold and silver tender as stated in the Constitution. No laws infringing on our unalienable rights given by our Creator. We would have county Grand Juries already in place keeping a watchful eye on elected officials to follow the laws and trained militias ready to defend any invasion. We would have no fraud in elections, as paper ballots should be issued and counted openly…a paper trail! This wonderful document is not outdated…but the powers that be don’t like it because it’s about Freedom!

    his father’s teachings, as displayed at the Democratic National

    What about the congress who passed the NDAA, virtually destroying the Constitution? What about the Congressmen who are receiving their pay while shutting down the govt and costing Americans their pay? This sh*t storm is not the cause of one man, but of many … those elected officials who are so removed from the people that they’re playing roulette with our futures! What about Diplomacy? The great forefathers of the United States were masters at Diplomacy, and they loathed war … why is everyone so eager to go to war and tear to shreds whatever society we have left? We the people of the United States of America need to see who the real enemies are: the hubris oligarchs serving corporate interests over the interests of the people. I admire the veteran’s loyalty to defend the Constitution. Yet, where were you when they shredded it with the Patriot Act, then the NDAA? Why blame your Commander in Chief now as the only one responsible? Hold Congress responsible! I’m no Obama fan, yet I respect the office and believe in Diplomacy as the way. We are a Democracy. United we stand, divided we fall. No one will fare well if this goes to martial law. No one, except the very oligarchs responsible in the first place. Our only hope is to unite under a common purpose. How’s this for a start: Our Children’s Future. Can’t we come together for the sake of our children? Level heads, gentlemen.

    FUD alert. It’s, one, a direct Constitutional violation to default on the national debt and, two, we have FAR more money coming in monthly in tax revenue (approximately 30x the cost to service the current debt load) to ever default on the national debt.

    Your map says “percentage of poor families receiving TANF”, Does that mean that only 8% of poor families in Texas receive TANF? And the other 92% of poor families in Texas don’t qualify? This would seem to indicate that it is harder to qualify for support in Texas and that state is leaving a majority of “poor families” (who knows what that means because you certainly don’t explain it, are you using the poverty line, or some made up qualifier?) without assistance to fend for themselves. Why don’t you just admit that your map is applauding those states that make it harder for the poor to get help. Plus your map cites no sources, normally you would provide the source for the maps data in small type at the bottom so people know you aren’t just making a graph with bogus numbers in order to scare people who are gullible and believe anything they see on the internet.

We cannot be like an ostrich and bury our heads in the sand because too many people are depending on us to do anything less than to be prepared.

    as for the Texas flag… ALL states can fly their flag equal to or greater than the US Flag, the reason they don’t is federal flag code that SUGGEST proper ways to fly US and state flags side by side, but if you don’t, there is no penalty for any perceived violation..please we have enough bs in our reporting, just the TRUE facts for us to judge on, thank you.. as far as the debt ceiling and milk costing $14 a gallon on the 18th, just not going to happen that fast.. those we owe debt to will not come unglued (except those in our own country, which is the majority of our debt) the rest will take a wait and see approach. much of our destruction will be self imposed if we allow yourself to run around with the sky is falling mentality.. relax, it will work its self out

  • Gilbert Glaser

    that’s where “we the people” stand tall and take it back…the cowards in congress will now see ,who has a backbone…I fought for my country and the war is not over…STAND TALL MY FELLOW PATRIOT

  • MitchHoff

    Brandon, Congress has the exclusive duty to raise the debt ceiling, and failure to do so would be the fault of Congress, not the President.

    Sure, Obama may be getting ready to shut down 16 states; but (if true) he would be derelict in his duties if he does not ask his administration to make contingency plans–because he is making plans, doesn’t mean he is responsible for the actions that would force him to put these plans into place.

    Finally, I’ve been holding off on making this comment; but your little bio piece states that you are a licensed Preacher and Journalist in Texas. (Gee, I didn’t know that journalists were licensed ). I have to ask, in your role as a “preacher” do you preach about the teachings of Christ? Are you a Christian? Are you a Buddhist? A Muslim? I’d really like to know. As a preacher and a so-called Journalist, I would think you would be more aware of your duty to our God and your neighbors to remain true to the 9th Commandment. By bearing false witness about an issue that could possibly impact millions of poor and needy in our country causes me great concern–not only for you; but for the people who may view your false witness as the truth. You know as well as I do that many of your readers will take what you write as at face value, because, well, if it’s on the Internet, it must be true. As a Christian, I feel as if it my duty to ask another Christian that you remain true to your God and the teachings of his messengers here on Earth. While your opinion piece today may simply talk about the plans the government is making if Congress fails to do their job; but you distinctly leave the reader with the impression that it is the president who raises the debt ceiling, not Congress.

    Sure, when I berate you like this, I am mindful of Matthew 7:3-5; but when so much is at stake, the plank in my eye is of little concern to me.

  • Clark Smith

    come on down to Texas young lady your father paid your price of admission and we will be happy to teach you how to hunt and how to use a weapon and we probably got a few spare ones around here we can sell or barter for ya around here somewhere we got plenty of land and a lot of small towns with good schools and we don’t mind ya having a few animals hell I got a small zoo and we take care of our friends and neighbors unlike most of those yankee states

  • MitchHoff

    Brave Native, part of being an American is to be part of a well-informed electorate. Unless we learn how to see the truth in the midst all of this madness, we will get the government we deserve. Those who belong to the well-informed electorate, true patriotic Americans know that the debt ceiling is the responsibility of Congress and not the President–and don’t let people tell you otherwise.

  • MitchHoff

    Gee, go figure, it defies logic that the Commander in Chief would put in place generals who he trusts. I’m like you Zaphod, if I were President, I’d go out and find general officers who decide for themselves which orders to take–that’s the mark of a true patriotic general. Are you seeing the local police following unlawful orders in your town too? All I see these days is cops engaging in gestapo like tactics by beating up patriots and law abiding Americans. I agree. It don’t look good.

  • RED1958

    Exactly what did Our Past History teach you?? Americans don’t want a Fight, but we will Fight if we have to!! And we’re Damn Good at it!! Most all of us have Men and Women Buried in this Country that Died and Sacrificed their Lives for Our Freedom!! And if we Don’t Fight for Our Country, they will have all Died for Nothing!! And that Surely isn’t going to Happen!!
    So Annmarie72, If you don’t want to Fight For this Country. Find a Corner to Hide In until it’s over. Then you can Crawl out and March in the Victory Parade!! That’s what alot of People like You will Do!!
    Most Freedom Loving Patriots are willing to Die for what we have in this Country. So our Children and Grandchildren can live in a Country like we Grew Up in. And we didn’t get to this Point in History by being Cowards and “Taking Meds”!! We have Spilled alot of Precious Blood for this Country!! The Blood was even Spilled for People like You!! The ones that Believe that Our Freedom was Free!!
    Benjamin Franklin said “The tree of Liberty must be Nourished with the Blood of Patriots and Tyrants from time to time”!!! And it’s almost time to water that Tree again!!
    And if you don’t want to Pay the Price of Freedom, then you don’t deserve to Share in the Liberty Our God and Constitution Guarantees!!
    If you’re Scared of a Fight, it’s O.K.!! We’re Scared too!! But we’d be more Scared of what will take Liberties Place if we Don’t Fight!!! And the Russian and German People what the Alternative is!!!

    Fuckin’ A, Joe. Just today, my neighbor was “asked” to present himself at the FEMA camp on the edge of town, and the bastards marked him with what he thinks is a something like a patriot tag on his left thigh. If we have a hurricane here in my home town, he says FEMA is going to go from house to house checking everybody’s left thigh–and how are we supposed to know if the person checking our thighs is looking for patriots to put in their camps? This fuckin’ scares me.

    …speaking of drinking the Kool-Aid…

    Perhaps, Winston, you could offer us all a source for your claim that he said he was raised in a Socialist/Communist family. And when I say source, I mean Barack Obama, since he is the one you claim made the remark.

    By the way, I didn’t know George Soros was a war criminal. Got any proof of that?

    I’ve got all night, so if you want to give us some other “facts” about our president, and you’re willing to give us a source other than Fox “News” or Michelle Bachmann.

  • RED1958

    @WTF—Do you somehow Doubt it?? Obama was Born to a Communist Sympathizing Mother and Father!! He was Raised by Card Carrying Communist Grandparents!! And was Mentored by A Hardcore Communist by the name of Frank Marshall Davis!! Obama even admitted that he was a Follower of the Teaching of Marxist Radical Saul Alinsky!! And Obama himself is a Card Carrying Communist Member of the CPUSA(Communist Party of The United States of America)!!!
    You can Believe what I say, or Not Believe it!! Makes no Difference to me!! YOU, and your Frame of Mind will be No Benefit to Us in what is Coming!! So if you’re On Obamas Side, or On their Side, you will in time Perish Anyway!! Either Way, we’ll be Rid of People with your Mindset!!

    Dear crazybaldhead bullsh*t, have you ever been to the memorials? They don’t have staff available to deal with possible problems because they know people can take care of themselves. It is only shut down for rare maintenance or repair. The majority of Americans know what Obamacare entails & know it is a Democrat debacle & disaster so they don’t want it. It has a provision in it for Bummer’s private army which is exactly like Hitler’s brown shirts that answers only to Bummer. Do you want your tax dollars funding that? That is only one reason it needs to be defunded. Have you noticed how quickly the WH distanced itself from the word “Obamacare”, his signature legislation, since it has become an albatross around his neck? I didn’t think so.

    Why doesn’t Congress just impeach the bum, and start trying to undo some of the damage his policies have caused? I would even go so far as to suggest a ‘special’ election be held to replace both President and Vice-President, since Nancy Pelosi would be an even bigger train wreck! It isn’t as if there weren’t sufficient grounds for impeachment, the man has committed ‘High Crimes and Misdemeanors”, and is clearly not in his right mind, if he thinks he can destroy America, and have her citizens sit idly by.

  • wikisaur

    I have a problem with a video that has a commercial bleep in the middle of serious talking. Something was said there that mattered. Something was said that the people involved didn’t want the American public to know about.

    As for the rest of the video, Boehner kept two items vague in his answers no matter how pressed he was to answer. First, he never named the people he thought would be hurt most by the ACA. In the past the Republican party was concerned with the upper middle class and the upper class. Are they the people he is referring to? Second, while he reiterates his willingness to just meet with the president and talk (like a mantra!) he never mentions what he wants to talk about.

    Now the Democrats are going to fill in the first silence with: Upper class just like the last time. Republicans are going to fill in: the working class.

    The second silence will have this effect: Democrats-he will demand to defund ACA, Republicans-he wants to get the budget balanced and that may take lessening the funds going to the ACA.

    The information provided in the body of the text was meant to be incendiary! It sure did have it’s effect! The states do NOT have the right to seceded from the Union. That’s one of the things that started the Civil War! Conversely, the President, Congress, nor the Supreme Court have the right to remove a state from the union. The removal of a state from the union must come from a mutual agreement.

    The Federal Government can, however, refuse funds from a state and no longer fund that state. The state would still have representation in the congress, but since the States form the Union, not the Federal Government, the states are not required to send Washington money as long as they no longer receive money from them. The government is looking at the states that receive the highest amount of money from DC and are “defunding” them. That’s the gist of the above tirade. Any politician can find a legal way around a sticky situation. They don’t need to break the law to screw us. Only the lazy ones do like Nixon and GW Bush.

    The only thing blocking his vision is 2 years of the Republican party shutting down congress with 40 bills to repeal the ACA, Republicans voting as a block on all bills introduced by democrats or by the president, Republicans refusing to put forth a budget unless it includes defunding the ACA.

    It’s not so hard to figure out what you think, because a person who draws such broad conclusions with nothing to back them up, doesn’t have a lot going on up top. I’m sure those people who read your post will be really impressed with your analysis, especially since most of them have no idea who Mao and Stalin are.

    In your own little world, you may think the president should have been gone two years ago; but the American people, by far, didn’t agree with you. You and your tea bagging buddies can do all the psychoanalysis you want; but in the end, your misinformed ranting will get you nowhere.

    Our president will continue to lead our country with honor and integrity for the next three years, and perhaps after Hillary Clinton serves her two terms, you will come to grips with the fact that your radical views run contrary to that of the American people, and maybe then, you will realize how ridiculous your views really are.

    People don’t honestly believe articles like this, do you? I could fact check half of this article in two second. Do you guys honestly believe that Obama is trying to mastermind the downfall of America and start a new world order or something? I’m not a fan of a lot of Obamas policies, but you aren’t even living in reality. These conspiracy theory articles do no favors in the honest policy debates we need to be having. a

  • jarenolds

    He can’t do it David, which is exactly why he won’t. A state can’t just withdraw from the union either, that is why we had the Civil War. Our founding fathers were very clear that someone didn’t have to join the union (at least at that moment) but once you were in you couldn’t just leave when things got tough. You were in for good. All you constituionalists, so knowledgeable.

  • jarenolds

    Yes I would much rather have you guys and your militias defending my rights than someone who is democratically elected. That would lead to a much better government and one with much better oversight. It really looks like you guys have the credentials to form a good government with your militia friends. And every knows that great governments are formed out of violent overthrow all the time.

  • jarenolds

    Provide me with a few examples of things that Obama has in common with any of those people? Has he tried to kill millions? Has he actually taken over a government and forced his underlings to live for fear of their own lives and their faimlies at all times? Have you ever read anything about Mao, Stalin, or Hitely

  • jarenolds

    Thank God someone else is living in reality. I don’t know why anyone would ever think we would prefer to have a bunch of nut job people in a militia running our government as opposed to people who were democratically elected, even someone who I didn’t vote for. What would qualify any of these people to be better leaders? This Red1958s post is pretty funny though.

  • jarenolds

    Just to let you know, Thomas Jefferson said that quote, man who is so informed on our constitution. He said that 250 years ago, when nearly every government in the world was run by tyrants. But today that is no longer the case in the west or in America. We have a democracy, an imperfect one, but a democracy indeed. Why should you be the one to decide when it is time to overthrow it?

  • jarenolds

    Yes, so much of Texas is beautiful fertile land. We will be so lost without you. We barely survived before you joined the union.

    He is NOT my president. He does NOT lead with honor or integrity. He has no idea what those two words mean. You just keep drinking your Obama kool-aid while we true Americans will eject this creep out of office. You are very misinformed and evidently believe everything mainstream media spews. They are liars almost as bad as Obama is. Catch up kool-aid drinker! He was elected when he was not LEGALLY able to run. And Hillary Clinton making the office of the presidency? Really? I believe the majority of the American people have had enough of socialism in this Republic, our nation. She won’t make it into office. Sorry to disappoint you.

  • Karla Moseley

    You go Red! I will be one of the proud who are in the streets of D.C. I will fight if necessary for our freedoms. That fight is nearing, despite the folks that believe it isn’t necessary, that Obama is a “good man”, and that he will take care of our society. Yeah, he’ll take care of it alright, right into the ground, taking away our liberties. Not gonna happen on our watch!!!

  • Zaphod Smith

    No, when I say “real military leaders” I mean, ones that know that the Constitution FORBIDS the US military from firing on US citizens on US soil. Military leaders take LAWFUL orders from the sitting President. To obey unlawful orders is also an act of treason. How I think they should act is irrelevant. The true laws of the land lay the rules for how they are to act. So in fact it is your logic that is flawed.

    Outsider looking in: When you have people voting 6 times and proud of it there is a problem. When you have DEAD PEOPLE voting, you have a problem. When they have 2 choices: (1) Get off your butts and prepare to work because your free ride is over or (2) Go buy a new couch, because you are going to be on it for another 4 years.. They chose Option (2).

    I read a report that over 97 percent of the votes that were case by the above mentioned were for the democratic party.

    Now here is the kicker, the government is running out of money and now the couch people are going to be screaming “GIMMIE, GIMMIE, GIMMIE”… There is no more go be given. What now?

    The answer is “Lets go Farther Into Debt”. Isn’t it amazing the special they just did on “60 Minutes” and how the number of people on Disability has climbed and certain ATTORNEY’s have figured out how to beat the system with False documents and doctors signing away their career. Did I mention that over a BILLION DOLLARS was given to Attorney’s so that $135 Billion could be spent annually to people on Disability.

    I can go on and on but the FACTS are there if you are willing to look. This Country has taken a turn for the worse and we would have been better off with a Businessman in Office who understands numbers. Not somebody that spends $100 Million to go on a Vacation during the SEQUESTER (oh, did we forget about the Sequester already?

But that is really the least of the craziness in this article of made up paranoid delusions.

    May I ask a few simple questions?

    (a) The Affordable Care Act (ACA or OBAMACARE) was voted on without it being read and understood by the People and Congress. Would you Blindly Vote for Anything without fully understanding it?

    (b) If you were an Elected Official representing your State or District and the VAST MAJORITY of your people after reading the above contacted you, would you uphold your vote or try and strike it down?

    (c) Obamacare was upheld but NOT for what it is, but because it is now considered a TAX. It was NEVER designed to be a TAX. There are MANY ASPECTS of the ACA (OBAMACARE) that have good aspects but as a whole, it is causing more problems not only for the companies but the Citizens as well. Is it really what the people want?

    I know people who have had their hours CUT to 29.5 in order to save the company money because Part Time Employees do not fall under the law.

    (d) If this Law (ACA or OBAMACARE) is so good, why is it that OBAMA has made it so that his FRIENDS are EXEMPT, that Congress is Exempt, that POTUS himself is EXEMPT? Why is it that a program that he is so proud of, he is not a part of?

    I can go on for Hours but if you can just think about it…. There is something wrong with this picture.

  • MitchHoff

    Karla,

    Sounds like somebody has a case of sour grapes.

    Now, let’s look at your rant, and see what we can conclude:

    First, Karla, Barack Obama IS your president. You may not have voted for him, you may dislike him, you may disagree with his politics; but that doesn’t change the fact that he IS your president. You can stomp your feet, demean those who voted for him and disavow the election all you want; but Barack Obama won the election by a significant margin, and to say he is not your president is as effective as shouting at the wind.

    Second, you BELIEVE he does not lead with honor and integrity, and you claim to know that he doesn’t know the meaning of those two words. Sorry, Ms. Moseley; but the majority of Americans disagree with you, as demonstrated by their vote last November.

    Your comment about Kool-Aid doesn’t merit comment. Just because I support our President, doesn’t mean I am a blind adherent to the man. It’s easy to make comments like that from the cheap seats.

    Now, as for your statement that “we true Americans will eject this creep from office,” the internal contradictions in that statement are baffling. If you were a “true American,” you would support the will of the people as expressed in the presidential election, because to do otherwise would fly in the face of the foundations of our representative democracy. Now, as for ejecting “this creep from office,” by what mechanism do you intend to do this? He is your duly elected leader, and there is no basis in law or fact to remove him from office. I’m truly sorry; but you cannot just wave your red, white and blue wand and expect Mr. Obama to say, “Oh, if Karla Moseley wants to eject me from Office, I might as well leave. Honey, pack the bags, we are moving back to Chicago.”

    I find it odd that you seem to think my opinions are formed by some brainwashing by the mainstream media. (Keep in mind, Karla, your beloved Fox News is part of the mainstream media as well–just because they kowtow to an undereducated and gullible viewership does not exempt them from the same financial motivations that drive their editorial content). As for your statement that the media are “liars,” I’m shocked, shocked that you could make such a contention. The media lie? Never. I couldn’t happen…I thought if it was on tee vee, it had to be true.

    I assume your statement about whether or not President Obama was legally qualified to run is in reference to the contention by the birther movement that President Obama surely must have been born in a foreign country. Sorry, Karla, the only people who continue to spout that long disproved notion are truly on the fringe of American society. If he was not legally able to run, he would not legally be able to serve, and last I checked, he was still living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue; so that ought to tell you something about the validity of these whacky claims. Plus, I don’t see anybody of any consequence actually pressing this matter; so you may want to save your breath.

    As for Hillary Clinton, you may not care for her; but you’d be stretching credulity to think that she could not be elected President. What’s more, the only people who label Secretary Clinton and President Obama as socialists are the tea bagger nut jobs who don’t even understand what socialism is. Just because you and your brethren call her a socialist, doesn’t make it so. What’s more, if you look at the Clinton finances, I think you’d find they are pretty darn good capitalists.

    So, there you go, Karla; pretty much everything you wrote is not based on fact. While that is just my opinion indeed, I think it’s fairly clear that your contentions are incorrect.

    Finally, at the risk of sounding redundant, let me close with this: Barack Hussein Obama is Karla Moseley’s President, whether she likes it or not, and there ain’t nuthin’ she can do about it! How do you like them apples?

  • Sherry Woodworth

    Why do you think there are hundreds of thousands of foreign troops on our soil? And are armed (with taxpayer money) better than our soldiers in other countries. Our troops – out of our country, foreign troops here. The US is not a democracy, it is a REPUBLIC. This country has defied the Living God, thrown Him out of our schools, killed our unborn, Perverted marriage, family, and His Word. We are under judgement. In short, we are screwed. Our only hope is Psalm 91. Repent, and turn to Him.

  • MitchHoff

    Really, Karla? Love that mixed metaphor–it’s truly inspiring.

    Clearly, you’re not the sharpest lightbulb in the knife drawer; but I’d like to enquire what, exactly about my comments are incorrect or untrue? It’s not exactly rocket surgery to come up with some fact-based reason, and I’d love for you to step up to the plate and lay your cards on the table–tell me, what did I say that was untrue?

  • jondaris

    Well, where we are today includes an American public that has twice voted to repair our broken and expensive health care system, an economy that continues to grow, and a deficit that continues to shrink. On the other hand, we have a group of nihilistic GOP congressmen who are holding all of our progress hostage, hoping to wreck our economy and remove American’s access to health care.

    I don’t think Americans are blind, since they’ve overwhelmingly voted for Democrats in the last two presidential election.

    Hi Xavier– I am off to work soon, but I wanted to point out that you are utterly mistaken about a and d above.
    The ACA was negotiated and discussed for MONTHS prior to the vote. My husband works for a fortune 100 insurance company- the executive and strategic staff had a draft copy of the legislation WEEKS before it was passed and submitted formal commentary (as did other insurance companies, the AMA, union groups, etc). I remember this vividly, as we discussed, at our dinner table many aspects of the legislation. It was not “secret” or hidden- it was available to anyone (including the media, which wrote many, many, articles about the particulars). The meme going around that the bill was passed without anyone knowing what was in it utterly and completely false. I have no idea if your representative bothered to read, but he certainly could have had he wanted to. My husband read the entire 1200 plus page document as part of his job. My feeling is that it was your representative’s job to read it as well, If he didn’t bother, you should take that up with him.

    And, congress in NOT exempt. Congressmen and staff (and executive branch staff) will all be going into the exchanges AS SPECIFIED IN THE LAW.

    I don’t usually reply to comments, I offer grace and usually respect peoples opinions even if I don’t agree with them. However, having said that, Cartmonkey….it is your lack of perspective and ability (apparently) to even comprehend the scope of the stupidity that you put out there like it was an intelligent/rational way of thinking….. I’ll explain and even agree on some points.

    #1 yes you should read up on socialism, it would be a great reminder to thank God every day that we are not totally there yet and there just might be some way to save us and our children from being slaves, because bottom line, the only freedom you have is to choose between what choices someone else has already made for you…. I.E. Obamacare, there will never again be freedom to go out and choose your own way and enjoy the pursuit of happiness.

    Under socialism, majority wins or is just decided by whomever may have the most power, so we are all submissive to whomever can buy sell trade the masses to go along with their opinion or promise things once we vote for them, I.E. Obamacare, welfare programs and not doing anything about that F***** southern border so you can get 20 million illegals to vote for you and demonize people because we say you must have an id to vote so that 20 million people vote for them…. sorry lost myself there for a minute….

    under a republic I.E. America,,,, the will of the majority will never infringe on the rights of the individual which in my view is the only reason you are able to post something so naive and irresponsible is because you live in a republic, for now anyway…..

    #2 I agree being blindly anti-something is a terrible way to live but yet blindly saying no to something you may not understand, in my view, is still a hell of a lot better, safer, more responsible and better for the rights of the republic than it is to blindly follow someone who promises to give you stuff telling you that where your going is a really cool place,,,,, did anyone else just get a visual of a child having to choose yes or no to the guy at the playground offering them candy to get in the card telling them their mom and dad said that it was ok????

    #3 the rest of what you said is so out there, inaccurate, dumb and unintelligible, I’m actually at a loss at to even how to try to communicate the reality of actually how dangerous your opinion and stupidity really is.

    Is this what your college professors told you is the right way to think?????

    Cartmonkey it is obvious you’ve not really had to be accountable to your utopian ideals, someday soon you will be, all of the sudden you’ll arrive at your destination of liberalism and socialism,,, you’ll blame the tea baggers,, look at what they’ve done! then you’ll see a mirror, you’ll realize you were the one that sent all the children to the slave mines of life and despair, for dinner, they will eat…. i pray you are shown mercy, though you didn’t show me, my family, my neighbors and my heritage any…..

  • Cartmonkey

    Wow. I’m not sure how to respond. You somehow managed to deduce I’m a liberal socialist from 4 sentences of text. I’m impressed. Allow me to respond.

    First off – Obamacare is the compromise between the GOP and the Democrats. The ACA was originally a republican idea. I would link articles, Wikipedia and other sources, but I’m sure you would blow them off as liberal and unfounded. The ACA is the free market solution to healthcare created by Republicans. It gives millions more people to insurance companies. While they will have to spend more on care, they will take in billions more in payments. A socialist system would have the government, or an entity acting in the government’s place, be the sole provider of health care. That is not what we have. We have a system which looks shaky and may very well fail.

    Now to address your…writing. “Socialism is an economic system characterised by social ownership of the means of production and co-operative management of the economy.” So first off, socialism isn’t a form of government, but rather the economy. I’m pretty sure the socialist countries of the world don’t consider themselves slaves anymore than the capitalist people of America do.

    Next, socialism is not majority rule. There a large number of social democracies which are much more robust in how their elections and governments operate. They have multiple parties which act in tandem with each other. It isn’t perfect, but it isn’t the communist rule everyone seems to think socialism is. It isn’t perfect, but nothing is.

    Beyond that, the rest of that paragraph is highly confusing. You started off so well and the rest of what you wrote is difficult to follow, but i will do my best.

    In America the opinion of the Majority frequently treads on the rights of the individual. That’s part of society unfortunately. We have a lot of freedoms in the United States, but we give some up to be a functional society. Despite this, we still have a lot of rights and the way our government is established allows for all people to provide their opinion.

    I am curious on how the ACA actual infringes on your rights. It may be difficult, but could you explain that without rambling or personally attacking me? I don’t like the ACA, I’d rather we have single payer and get it over with, but I am genuinely interested on how it attacks your rights.

    Moving on, (#2) seems like rambling. From what I understand, it is, in your opinion, better to blindly oppose something you do not understand for the good of all. I disagree, I believe all people have the responsibility to be informed and make intelligent decisions based on information provided to them. But that’s just me. Somehow, this then moved to someone kidnapping children. I think this is you attacking me for being “liberal” again. Which is interesting since I never mentioned my affiliations.

    #3 – This is funny. I wrote 4 sentences. You didn’t address any of my short post directly. I’m really lost on what you managed to gather since you never directly speak on it. You simply insult me and talk around the post.

    And in case you wonder, I went to a private Christian college. My professors taught me the material and occasionally prayed in class. My government teacher was a retired Jr. Director to a Republican think tank in DC. We had lovely discussions in his class and it made me change some of my viewpoints on how the system is run.

    Your last paragraph is once again nonsense.

    For fun.

    Oh boy. In case you haven’t seen the numbers, your marvelous health care program has raised the cost of healthcare. and if left in place it will.. well I tell ya what. lets just wait and see.. (hope you like surprises) And lol on the “I don’t think Americans are blind, since they’ve overwhelmingly voted for Democrats in the last two presidential election.” ok not blind.. just stupid then. Like it really matters who is in democrats, republicans both are just two sides of the same filthy disgusting coin.

    That would be true if it where not for the Declaration of Independence that in fact requires such actions under such circumstances. “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government”

    People there is no chance we are going to shutdown. THis is a scare tactic. THe government brings in $200 billion in tax revenue a month. For us to default we’d have to miss a payment on the $20 billion a month in interest to the Federal Reserve. How can we default then when the government brings in much more than $20 billion? This is a scare tactic and it’s being used by both parties. How about balance the frickin’ budget NOW. politicalplangetis.blogspot.com

    For any of you to think that any of the government is on our side, is idiocy. They have their own agenda, and sadly, as blue collar americans, we are not part of it. The Democraps and Retardicans are all the same, they are just scratching each others backs for monetary and political gain, and laughing at everybody who argues one side against the other. All we are is a distraction for them to do as they please without notice. After all…look at how quick the Fast and Furious mistake, and Benghazi were swept under the rug while we are arguing over the “Next big thing” the government comes out with…

  • Drew R.

    This is nothing more than continuing Republican garbage. If the United States defaults on anything because the government is shut down the blame falls squarely on the shoulders of the Republican Party, who could restart the government any time they choose. Their refusal to do so, in direct violation of the law, makes any negative consequences entirely the fault of the Republicans.

    Stop selling your right-wing crazy-talk, man. Nobody with a brain is buying.

  • Drew R.

    A. Kind of like Bush 2′s KGB-creating “USA-PATRIOT ACT?”

    B. Kind of like how the majority of Americans Favored the ACA and voted for Obama?

    C. No, it was impeded because Republicans will do anything to obstruct Democrats, even plunge the nation into chaos. And if companies are doing that, and we all know they are, that is an evil act on the part of the company, placing profits ahead of human dignity and safety. That is not an act of the Obama administration, that is corporate greed.

    D. Actually, the Congress itself created the exemptions, so you don’t get to lay that at the feet of Obama, either. Nice try.

  • MitchHoff

    Zaphod,

    I have a sneaking suspicion that the law enforcement authorities would not see it that way. (What’s more, I’m guessing David is no Thomas Jefferson, and I’m certain he’s no Ben Franklin).

    There is that old adage, “One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter.” However, since the rest of the country doesn’t share David’s desire for violence, and his actions are clearly unlawful, I’m sure the authorities would make quick work of putting down his little gun totin’ insurrection.

    And, hell, why take up arms, when the Koch brothers are already buying our government? it’s a lot less bloody.

    Alllow me to share the definition of “domestic terrorist” from the United States Code:

    (5) the term “domestic terrorism” means activities that—

    (A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State;

    (B) appear to be intended—

    (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population;

    (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or

    (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and

    (C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States.

  • Harmon MacLeod

    If Hitlery gets voted in, we will have most of the countries of the world at our throats, and then we will “need” the UN to come in and help… Barack Osama is counting on that. As to calling someone who believes in freedom, individual rights, etc a “libtard”, check what the lay-definition of that epithet is… A moron who follows the Democrat Party, and whatever they say, blindly.

  • MitchHoff

    Harmon,

    Don’t want to burst your bubble; but Hillary Clinton is extraordinarily well respected around the world. She is on first name basis with the majority of the world’s leaders, she has worked with many of them for the past 20 years, dating back to when she was first lady. To the contrary, Harmon, the rest of the world would be relieved if Hillary were elected President. Over the past 15 years I have worked with foreign governments in nearly 40 countries, and I can report that she is revered around the world.

    As for being a member of the Democratic Party (It’s not the Democrat party, by the way), nearly half of our country are democrats. Neither the GOP or the tea baggers have a monopoly on good ideas–in fact, half of the country would agree with me that they have no good ideas, otherwise they would join their ranks and they likewise wouldn’t have elected President Obama to a second term.

  • ARTHUR H. NICANDER

    Guest, I hate to tell you this but we do not have have a democracy !! It is a Constitutional Republic !!…..

  • Harmon MacLeod

    you REALLY need to read the constitution… the people can depose a president, by popular vote, if he is unfit. Barry is unfit. He is NOT ‘her’ president, as she did not help in his election. and a 4% margin of POPULAR vote is not a ‘significant amount’. The electoral college voted him in, and their new cars and houses should be sold tto make up the money this “president” has cost us. Give the titles and deeds of EVERY CONGRESSMAN to the Chinese, then their personal holdings, and finally empty all of Osama’s off shore accounts, and sell his personal homes and vehicles. We would be debt and deficit free.Barack Hussein Osama is NOT my president, and I do not support him, Hitlery Rotten Clinton, or any of the rest who would strip us of our freedoms.

  • Harmon MacLeod

    walk, alone and unarmed, in downtown Detroit at night. THOSE people love him there. Then, head on over to Iraq (you’ll have time to learn Arabic while healing from the beating/stabbing/shooting in Detroit) and ask how many folks there were killed for no reason at all, and not by American soldiers.

  • MitchHoff

    Harmon, I have read the Constitution–as a lawyer, I have studied Constitutional law, and I doubt you want to get into a debate about its contents with me. Maybe you should read it too, because nowhere in the Constitution does it say the people can depose a president by popular vote.

    Take a look, you won’t find it. If you do, let me know. http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/constitution_transcript.html

    In all of the 30+ years I have voted I have not once seen the poll’s close and chose a winner at the stroke of closing at 8 p.m. It has always gone into the early morning hours or days after to get all “ALL” ballots counted. Not all the votes had been counted. As well Where are all the ballots from our Military Service Men and Women? They never arrived to them in time to Vote as they were possibly in a plane crash and burned to close to get new ones out to them and be counted before they called the election. The intimidation at the Polling places was on National news. No I wish to disagree with you about he was voted in the second term since watching the map of where POS won was not the majority of the country, Sad that small cities with Mass populations vote for everyone. The Majority of the map during the election was RED but the numbers they posted did not show such. No I do not think he won. You may have your dream of how wonderful the POS is. It is so sad that you can not see the lies he and Hillary have said “But what does it matter now any way?”

    He’s been trying to bring us down since he was elected.People are blinded by his BS. He tried to take our guns away. Leave us unprotected. He’s building his own military by using the police. Trying to start a race war. Giving illegal aliens amnesty. He’s an illegal himself. Then he becomes legal. Paying people to vote him in. Now he wants to pass a law where you don’t need an ID to vote. Can you imagine how much fraud will be going on then. Now part of the government has been shut down along with parks and government property. He’s doing everything he can to dictate. Shoving Obama care down our throats will give him total control of our lives. Lawfully it takes an act of congress to impeach him. Which is never going to happen . Were standing together but we need a solution and we need it quick.

  • jarenolds

    Because you are citizens that are standing up only for fringe beliefs. Give me some solid reasons why I should support your overthrow of the government instead of someone who was elected? Not rhetoric, most of which is spewed on this comment board, but actual policy that would make you a more effective government. Then inform me why you couldn’t then just participate in our electoral system and become elected as opposed to needing to start a revolution to impose your fringe beliefs. The biggest threat to our democracy is someone thinking that anyone who my disagree with them must have “rode on the short bus with a helmet.” Most of you are incapable of have an actual policy discussion based on the realities of the world that we live in.

  • jarenolds

    What do you mean how America came to be. I would be glad to have an educated discussion with you about that if you are interested. I enjoy political discussions as long as they aren’t filled with conspiracy theories that when proven wrong are blame on that “liberal media” and another conspiracy theory cover up. That’s like debating a born against Christian.

  • Renee Danell

    Please watch “The Four Blood Moons” , a sermon by John Hagee, a long time trusted pastor from San Antonio Texas. I am not a church going person myself, but this sermon uses facts from NASA and can explain what all of this political crap means to us and our future. It brought about the “whole picture” for me and I hope it will do the same for you.

    Yes, Obamacare will bankrupt us. It is unsustainable. Ohitler’s brown shirt army has to be paid for by Obamacare. The armed IRS agents have to be paid for. We’re so far in the hole now we’ll never see daylight again & he keeps adding on more debt & borrowing more money that we can’t repay. Did you believe him when he said raising the debt ceiling won’t raise the debt? What the heck is the purpose of raising the ceiling? He’s about to find out that we’re not as stupid as he thinks we are.

  • Canadian.F.H

    not literally, but effectively… simply put after oct 17th, money stops moving from Fed to state, since the money isnt there… that shuts down the governments of those states as they run out of money shortly after… one way of looking at it is to say that the shutdown punishes states that require the most federal aid.

He has no idea what America means apparently neither do you.. but you will.. those words you thru out there honor , integrity, the Constitution, The Bill of Rights, Justice, Truth, Respect. Those things mean something to America, to Americans.. Obama has woken once again the sleeping Giant..It is not a Republican, A Democrat, A black man or White… It is an American.. Washington is a small part of a huge Country,the representatives are pawns, We are the People. We are the Sleeping Giant.

    To Deirdre Tours : Don’t fall into the trap of pitting one party against another. That is what fascist governments do. They divide and conquore. The two party machine in America is really one big dictatorship designed to destablize our country from within, like it has all the other democratic governments within the last 40 years, or more. We need to put aside our differences, and keep the big picture in focus, KEEP THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES INTACT.
    Do you like your slavery, working for a corporation? It hasn’t always been this way you know. If you start a small business, then the regulations and laws clobber you from one party, if you are too poor and weak, the other party condemns you. There is no winner. You will have to pick a side one day ,sooner or latter. Kings and serfs, or soldiers for the constitution.

  • jarenolds

    Yes that’s why we learn history, so that we know how to reproduce, not to learn from it. Many countries were founded in many different ways but only in America do we consistently recommend going back over 200 years, to pre-democracy, to once again experiment with how ours came to be. You couldn’t really answer my question though could you? You u don’t know what you would do, you only thrive on conspiracy theories. You can’t run a country based on that.

    It’s true. Jesse Ventura did a documentary on it once. Do a search on Fema camps. They are spruced up & ready. They started hiring guards in 2009.

  • MitchHoff

    Judy, ultimately all the votes are counted. The “they” calling the election is the television networks and wire services–the government does not “call” the election. Following election day, your State or Local election office continues to tally the votes well past election day, to make sure every vote is counted.

    Following the tally of the votes, States then send their electors to a meeting of the the Electoral College to actually “elect” the President. So, don’t fear all of the votes are counted.

    As for your 30+ years as an election observer, may I remind you that the majority of elections have been called by the media shortly after the polls closed. Remember Reagan vs. Carter? That was an early one. Reagan vs. Mondale was an early call as well. George H.W. Bush handed Michael Dukakis his head immediately after the polls closed in California. The Clinton/Bush Race was called early in the evening, as was Clinton vs. Senator Dole. It wasn’t until Bush vs. Gore in 2000 that the decision went on for ever–Although, the race was initially called for Bush early in the evening, the Networks quickly reminded their call. In 2004, it was fairly early in the evening when Florida and Ohio were called for George W. Bush, and at that point, it was fairly clear that John Kerry wouldn’t stand a chance.

    So, your memory on this front may be a bit foggy. However, you need to know that just because the media calls the election, the vote count does not cease. Each state must continue to vote until they have counted every vote they can practically count.

    Now, to 2012, you only need to look to the state by state tally of votes for Obama and for Romney to know that Obama beat Romney in the popular vote as well as the electoral vote. The color of each state doesn’t much matter because the number of Electoral Votes each state has is based on Population. The map could be all red or all blue except for Florida, New York, Ohio, Illinois, Texas, Michigan and California, and the entire election could be decided based on which way those seven states voted. That’s why many people from both major parties want to do away with the electoral college.

    Hope this helps. And, if you have any remaining concerns, please throw them out there for everybody to consider.

    Mitch

    So, Mr. Name, if the American People hate President Obama, how do you explain his re-election last year. You tea baggers seem to throw the phrase “the American People” around as if you think you know what the American People think. Sorry to inform you; but the only people who hate our President are a small, radical tea bagging fringe.

    I’ll tell you what the American People think. They think the entire cadre of tea baggers are dangerous nut bags who threaten the very existence of our great country. If you want to talk about honor and respect, you should show some honor and respect for your president, even if you disagree with his politics.

    What’s more, you throw the word “traitor” around as if there exists evidence to back up your claim. That being said, I challenge you to identify one–only one traitorous act the president committed. You can throw these words around; but if you cannot back them up, your claims will fall on deaf ears–except of course the ears of all of the nut bag tea baggers.

    However the members of the Federal Government think otherwise. They are hell bent on subjugation of the people. Meaning they believe WE ARE THEIR SLAVES.

    We live, to be taxed, to pay for their fallacy.

    WE THE PEOPLE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR UNCONTROLLED SPENDING OR FOR FINANCING THEIR WARS.

    Did you authorize war or sign off on drone attacks? OR Did you lose a family member in those wars.

    Does the “War on Terror” make you feel ANY SAFER?

    Does knowing that 18 of the 21 terrorist events in the USA were sting (entrapment) operations conceived byt the FBI make you feel any better. What about the other 3? Did you know in every instance there was US Government involvement prior to the event and yet the US Government failed to stop these events. 9/11 is not included because it was not a terrorist event. The WTC was wired for demolition by MOUSSAD. The US Government was complicit.

    Do you feel any safer today than you did 20 years ago? Why continue to pay for failed policy and made up wars? Knowing that the US Government provided weapons to drug cartels in order to push legislation against the Second Amendment, which in itself is criminal, and knowing those weapons were subsequently used to kill Americans. Does that make you feel any safer?

    So Obama orders National Monuments and Federal Parks to close even though many of those parks are self supporting and use no federal monies. Even unto forcing people out of their paid for homes and destroyed vacations costing upwards of $40 thousand.

    How about the squatters who are living in the White House “prison” (Michelle Obama quote) they do not pay rent and because the government is shutdown I do not recognize their employment.

    EVICT the War Criminals. Try them for TREASON and provide appropriate punishment. During war the punishment for TREASON is DEATH.

    Obama will declare martial law and it will be bad. He already had tourist in a Yellowstone hotel in lockdown with armed rangers, foreigners were so confused they thought they were under arrest, Obama is dangerous and as egotistical as the worst dictators of the past.

  • 440Dodge

    LOUD applause to Mr. Fankhauser’s comments!

  • MitchHoff

    JD, did you listen in High School, or did you sleep through all six years of your high school career?

    Let’s get right to the point. You cannot, by any stretch of the imagination, draw parallels with the Founding Fathers and the tea baggers and other nut jobs who are currently advocating going to Washington and taking over our government simply because they don’t like Barack Obama.

    First, most of the Founding Fathers were respected elected officials, judges, business leaders and members of some of the great landholding families in the colonies. The founding fathers were well educated, and, most were opinion leaders in the colonies, who had already found broad success in the public arena. Such cannot be said for the Tea Baggers of today who seek to take up arms against our elected officials and those who support them.

    These so-called Tea Bagger Patriots, (who are anything but patriots) who seek to overthrow our government by violent and unlawful means, are largely uneducated, radical, green-toothed, beer-bellied, gun totin’ buffoons who, unlike our founding fathers, have little idea about the creation of democratic institutions, and how to maintain those institutions through lawful and civilized means.If these people were actually to try to violently overthrow our government based on their unfounded beliefs that our President was not a natural born citizen, or because they do not believe many of our fellow citizens do not deserve affordable health insurance, they will find themselves rightfully locked up in prison or placed in a mental institution for the rest of their lives. …and the majority of “real Americans” will applaud the fact that these tea baggers are put in their place so the rest of us can live a life free from domestic terrorists who seek to impose their will on the rest of the country through violence and unlawful overthrow of our duly elected officials.

    Now, if history is any guide, all of you tea baggers will respond to this post with one word replies such as “moron,” “idiot”, or “commie,” You will then tell me that I am a Kool-Aid drinking lover of “Barack Osama,” and that I ought to “go fuck myself.” Interestingly, NOT ONE of these people have been able to offer arguments based on fact, or in reality. Many think that it’s the President who decides whether or not the government stays open, despite the fact that Congress has the sole responsibility for doing so. Many also believe that the raising of the debt ceiling is the same thing as increasing our national debt. A fair share will provide quotes by the President that he never made, or make up clauses in the United States Constitution that simply do not exist. Many will contend that because he or she did not vote for the President, Barack Obama is not their president. However, one constant in the replies I receive will be myriad misspellings, 3rd grade level sentence structure, and a baffling lack of knowledge about how our government actually works. (For example on person exclaimed that President Obama was placing members (members, plural) in jobs at the department of Homeland Security. It turns out that one person was appointed to serve on an unpaid informal advisory board for DHS whose only responsibility was to sit in on infrequent meetings and offer an islamic perspective during the meetings, where appropriate. This person had received awards from the FBI, the United States District Court and had helped protect our country from terrorist attacks. Just because this man was muslim, suddenly Barack Obama was putting muslims in charge of all of our national security.

    Finally, I’ve found that those people who respond to me with “wake up” or “open your eyes” are the ones who are always quick to offer the latest conspiracy theory that their crazy Aunt Harriet emailed them earlier in the day….Things like Obama is a traitor, he cancelled Mother’s Day for next year, and the following year, he is going to make Christmas a Moslemm (sic) holiday.

  • B

    That is where the Patriot Act steps in. This is why that was a bad idea too. Just like obamacare it was thrown together without any real research, testing, discussions and consequences acknowledged. Luck us, not!

  • AmWiser

    WELL then…if that happens then those states just need to go ahead secede. In effect what he is saying is he is going to deny any and all federal funding going out to those states for whatever reason. When Obama “shuts things down”, if you haven’t noticed, he targets things that serve to HURT We The People THE MOST.

  • B

    Can you say AntiChrist? With what he’s doing how can I/we deny this.

  • AmWiser

    He has full reins of the revenue department and will not permit any funds to go to the targeted states. Obama is not one to look to see if he has the power to do things before he does them. That is why we call him a D-I-C-T-A-T-O-R.

  • AmWiser

    Uh….it’s the existence of the union between the DNC & the labor unions in Detroit that caused the auto industry to move out of that state and just resort to outsourcing.
    The President of The United States today is not negotiating with The House of Representatives and that is the reason why we have a shutdown. The fact that Obama wants his way without negotiation is in fact the same as OBAMA taking UNILATERAL ACTION and forcing Obamacare onto the nation. The President takes an Oath to follow the Rule of Law and that Rule of Law is called The Constitution and it includes the checks and balances put in place so that one branch doesn’t have too much power. BY NOT NEGOTIATING with the House of Representatives, Obama is IN FACT ACTING UNILATERALLY and FORCING THIS LAW ONTO THE NATION. That is what a MONARCHY (aka King) or a DICTATOR/ TYRANT (aka authoritarian / totalitarian) regime does.

  • Keta Williams Blue

    I can not say what is right or wrong because none of us knows what the future holds or what the President is thinking. Whether he has a strategy or not. But let me ask a question; if all of you people know so much about everything…why didn’t any of you run for President?

  • Merica

    This is the most ridiculous article I’ve ever read. Get real. Congress is using this as a political strategy, they will most certainly sign, and are already planning to, before the deadline, they would never let the government default because it wouldn’t benefit them in any way shape or form, its just a scare tactic to get Obama to get rid of Obamacare which isn’t going to happen.

    “When the government fears its people, you have democracy; when the people fear their government, you have tyranny.” – Thomas Jefferson, 3rd U.S. President; guy on $2 federal reserve note. A ‘democracy’ is two wolves and a sheep voting on what’s for dinner; A constitutional republic, is two wolves and a sheep voting on what’s for dinner but the sheep has a shotgun. (America was originally engineered as a constitutional republic so perhaps Jefferson used the term democracy incorrectly or in the wrong context.)

    If what this article suggests actually happens, I believe there would be a run on Washington DC. People would tear the seats out of the halls of Congress in the spirit of ‘New Beginnings.’

    Now, until the United States takes back its power to print & coin its own money, the Federal Reserve cartel will remain in control and continue hanging these ridiculous debt numbers over our soverign nation’s collective head. The Fed prints / creates paper money out of this air and sells that same paper to the US government AT INTEREST. The language these gangsters are using implies we have a credit report at risk and we have to ‘make that payment on time’ or the sky will fall. Baloney. The United States is a soverign nation with plenty of natural resources, a productive, knowledgeable population with manufacturing skills which have in fact been sold out by the Federal Reserve banking cartel – an offshore corporation with no allegiance to Americans. They, (Fed) through their treasonous DC politicians and treasonous trade deals (WTO, NAFTA, GATT) have exported most of America’s manufacturing base to Asia and Mexico in the interest of their own corporate profits; you see, the Fed has its tentacles into all sorts of companies worldwide besides the United States government. The NAFTA was railroaded through Congress on ‘Fast Track’ basis which means no public debate or involvement, and a vote in Congress to pass it regardless – much like the current debacle with the AHCA / ‘Obamacare’ being stuffed up our rear ends, whereby the legislation had to FIRST be passed to find out what was in it. Well this is the tail wagging the dog once again. The splineless gutless, treasonous Congress was again forced into passing this AHCA garbage with a ‘shotgun vote’. DEFUND & REPEAL THIS SOCIALIST DEBACLE !!!!! or let the chips fall where they may.

  • franklingray

    First off, no, Obama didn’t borrow a trillion dollars from the Chinese. In fact, the Chinese have been trying to get rid of their dollar holdings of over 1.2 trillion they had when Obama took office. I believe they are down to 1.1 trillion. Obama has been borrowing much much more than all other presidents combined, but it is from within. That is the reason they have to “print money”, because they aren’t replacing the trade deficit with loans. Our true money supply in this country is shrinking but with the funny money being pushed onto the banks from the fed, it’s been able to stay stable temporary.

    The fact that you mis-state that Obama has borrowed 1 trillion from China makes this whole article suspect of true facts.

    With that said, I would love that my wonderful state of Texas would succeed. It is it’s only hope.

    Every bit of this is political posturing for the sake of an election year. B0ner has never done anything for America without first reviewing how it will benefit him. This is all show and our elected officials, at the end of the day, will give each other a high five and then announce how they came together on a deal that is good for everyone. In reality, America will lose again.

  • MitchHoff

    Gaylib, what are you talking about? Of course the people’s vote decides who the President is. The voters vote, and the electoral college votes according to the electoral laws from the state in which they reside.

    Now, that’s not to say, what some people like to call the “world’s greatest democracy” is a country that has more people voting for the contestants on American Idol than those who vote in a presidential election.

    Now, as for the power elites, the banker,s and the evil Koch Brothers, they only have control over elections to the extent that people let them have control.

    Sadly far too many people are willing to hand over the electoral process to the highest bidder.

    We all know Congress is essentially run by Lobbyists, and for those on this site who are so quick to call Ted Cruz a hero, I’d ask them to follow the money–that’s all they need to do, is follow the money, and they’d see how corrupt this man really is. So, say what you will about President Obama, he’s not running for reelection; but Ted Cruz is trying to establish himself on the national stage, and you can bet that he is giddy over this government shutdown.

  • Ricky Medina

    There to be some confusion in this article over the use of annex. Where are these 16 states going are we giving them to some other country cause then annex barely applies. But if they are just being let go and allowed to for their own republics then expelled granted independence would be more apt. I really can’t believe that an article like this has any truth when I see no links or notations to actual legislation or executive orders.

  • Ar-15

    Umm…what? You are living in pot induced euphoria, king Obama has changed the healthcare law unilaterally several times after congress voted on and passed this law…so really the law that we know today is a completely different law than what was voted on. I understand you want to be a blind sheep, and by all means please do so on your own accord. Within the last two months congress, unions, congressional staff along with big businesses have indeed received exemptions from the law. Please do us all a favor, put the bong down, sober up and check your facts because you deirdretours are WRONG.

    The closest thing he’s done on there is executive orders, but he’s on the low end of usage for a modern President, and he hasn’t done anything which directly overrode Congress or the Supreme Court. I would like to know what you consider his dictator like qualities.

    The middle column is the Republican bill offered in 1993. It looks vary similar to the Senate bill in 2009 which ultimately became the ACA.

    The Heritage Foundation had the original idea, healthcare reform died in the 90s, the Republicans suggested it as compromise in 2009 and divorced it when the President accepted it.

  • HappyHarriet

    This is unbelievable balderdash. Within the first paragraph there are several errors. To wit: NOT raising the debt ceiling does NOT mean USA defaults on it’s loans. It makes zero sense to any educated person.

    For example, if you have a credit card with a 5000 limit, and you spend up to that limit, and you ask your credit card company to give you more credit (raise your debt limit) and they say “no”, does that mean you STOP PAYING YOUR CREDIT CARD BILL? Of course not! In fact, it is an incentive to pay your credit card bill because THEN you can SPEND MORE MONEY ON YOUR CREDIT CARD which now has MORE CREDIT AVAILABLE because you have PAID YOUR BILLS.

    Raising debt limit is one thing.

    Paying bills as they come due, or NOT DEFAULTING, is a completely separate thing! And the USA has PLENTY OF MONEY to PAY IT’S BILLS!

    The big squawk here is about whether the USA should BORROW MORE MONEY and the answer is HELL NO.

    Whoever this preacher is, stick to the Bible which is murky enough and difficult enough to understand and interpret, and stay out of dire predictions for political futures.

    Or better yet, get an education before you open your mouth and write trash on the internet. At least get your facts straight.

  • ladagosta

    my friend, i have looked into this a bit more with a slightly level head and I come to the conclusion that this is a smoke screen that the country is run more on the lines of a Plutocracy and the threats of a default are not as relevant as they would like the people to believe the current statements coming from Liz Kennedy in DC right now is very interesting and I am tuning in as they are addressing that wealth is controlling factors in our government and the people are tired of it blocking the progress of decision making in congress hooray but now what will come as a result chins up people we have enough money and assets to keep the debt tended to for about 3 months with out getting the house to even concede to a clean CR.. so touche.. hopefully something will be resolved the debt under control and the ACA issue addressed..more to come.. LOL

  • ladagosta

    i would concur, yet this needs to be known ,, the republican party tried to explain that our country is in no real threat of defaulting on our debts even if a clean CR was not presented we can still manage for at least 2 months with our assets to pay the interest on our current debt so there is still enough time to work through this nightmare and resolve the issues presently pressing that the people need to have answered , and yes we do deserve better and we collectively pay the salaries of everyone in office and they should not forget that this threat of default is a power trip and a tactic to panic everyone and press the CR to be pushed through without addressing the issues .. which at this point would be far worse to have to undo the damage that pushing it through without addressing the issues. the public is not happy with the games at play right now. we need to remain calm and civil and cooler heads will prevail, not just pushing things through and sorting things out later.. that is like shooting first and asking questions later it will leave us with no solution to the main issues just more problems fix it now before we seal the fate of our country .. prevention is worth a pound of cure.. good old adage hand down over many generations..

  • ladagosta

    touche but the candidates they offer are pitiful not even worth considering them to run office. who is the lesser of the two evils?

This is proven time and time again the promises in the beginning all turn to dust once sworn in as money sways and decides what morals should.. sad but time and time again it proves to be the case ..insurance is not the answer health care is, insurance delays healing and insurance companies make the decisions not the doctors. this is NOT the answer those who have insurance know this the deny deny deny.. cash gets more results than insurance. so this insurance mandate is BS to the top of the rim.. thank you but no thanks ..

Thats giving aide to our enemy….i.e. The definition of Traitor to the United States. Those are all researchable facts.

    I don’t understand how everything you say, in every comment you make, is blamed on the ‘tea-baggers’ saying that they are radicals and extremists (just like the rest of your Democratic party) and are the biggest complainers and whiners, just because they disagree with you. This site is viewed by more people than just the Tea Party members. You are, in essence, doing exactly the same thing you are “complaining” about on this blog. You knew (assuming since you made a point to let everyone here know that you’re a lawyer who has studied Constitutional law) that this site was a conservative one. So I can assume, as you apparently like to do, that you came here for the mere purpose of stirring the pot. If you do not like what is written, you are free to leave. It is asinine for you to come here and talk about the people who disagree with the President just because they do. You are no better than anyone on this site, or any of the “progressive” sites I’m sure you like to visit to glorify your stance. The fact that you sit here with the “my way of thinking is right and yours is wrong” mentality is what is wrong with this country. You think Obama is so great and smart? If that is so true, why won’t he release his college records so that all of his followers will know what they need to study and learn to become as great as he? Why is it that anyone who does disagree winds up being on a watch list, or called a domestic terrorist? I believe BOTH parties are responsible for the shutdown as this was not something that sprung up all the sudden. BOTH parties were aware of the deadlines and neither were quick to work to a resolution before time ran out. So you go ahead and bicker about the one side or the other. Until we get rid of damn near all our politicians and start new with term limits, Washington will never change for the better. We went wrong with allowing these people to stay in office for 20, 30+ years. If you think after all that time that they are looking out for your best interest, you, Sir, law degree or not, are delusional. Quit being another example of the exact thing you tirelessly sit here bitching about!

    This might lead to actual state banks and horrors no usury fees – good be onto a good thing here – just lifted my own spirits – well it’s 5 o’clock some where.

  • kazer

    They arent actually “exempt” that’s just inane bullshit spouted by people who don’t understand… well anything. The reason that some people have called them “exempt” is because all members on congress/pres already have their own health care plan that is provided for by the country.

    The mandate can’t apply to them, because they already have insurance. And since the ACA only really affects accessibility, there’s no other way for them to really be exempt from it.

  • kazer

    No, the country is being shut down by 80 people who have a blatant disregard for our legal process. (ACA has been upheld in every branch of govt. 45 times in congress). You don’t negotiate with people who are essentially government destroying terrorists. Especially when the ACA and the fed funding are completely unrelated. (ACA has its own funding, and the shutdown doesn’t affect it at all.)

  • Rusty

    My wife has coverage through work, we can not afford for me to be on her policy so I have no insurance. But her out of pocket cost will go up $5500/yr. To meet her co-pay will now cost her $2500 when it was $600 and an extra $300 a month or 138.71 per pay check (bi-weekly) and her co-insurance will be higher as well 30% up to 50% for many visits. Her company has not given pay raises for the last few yrs. If she quits and goes on disability (she would qualify easily), we would actually be better off. She wants to hold out the 6 yrs to get her retirement.

    as with ALL CIVIL SERVICE EMPLOYEES, they pay a Dollar amt for their Insurance, and the Gov’t picks up the rest like maybe 80/20… This NOT THE SAME AS THE EXCHANGE PROGRAM, if it were so why did the companies cut back on employees hours. The language said FULL TIME EMPLOYEES, ( FULL TIME MEANS 40 hours or more).

Your inner liberal is showing.

  • Corinne Mercier

    Oh that’s right Drew. Throw Bush into the quagmire. He hasn’t been President for over 5 years. But that’s so typical of Democrats – don’t take responsibility for one’s own actions (or inactions in Obama’s case)…deny, deny, deny and keep on denying….and let’s shift the blame to the other guy. This man is well into his second term as President. Maybe he was left a mess by Bush (or maybe not – I don’t know) but Obama has not only done nothing for our economy, our deficit, our unemployment – and the list goes on – but he has actually made all of the above worse (go do the research yourself – you’ll see – numbers don’t lie). He has never submitted a budget that anyone could live with because all he wants to do is raise the debt ceiling. Only this time, Congress has said enough is enough. THIS HAS TO STOP NOW. And NOW throw in Obamacare. The ONLY way he could get the ACA passed was to submit it as a tax, which the Supreme Court upheld. This law was shoved down our throats through trickery and lying. Even his biggest supporter, Pelosi, admitted she had no idea what was in it. And don’t believe for a second that it was an accident that the ACA was written in such double talk and confusion that even reading it, you were left with your mouth hanging open, thinking WTF did that just say? It was NO accident. Obama had to get this “tax” approved so he could move forward with his plans. I’m just sick that Congress approved this tax without being fully informed, and I’m surprised that the Republicans fell for it. They sure are sorry now – but unfortunately for the American people, it’s probably too late. However, if nobody signs up for this joke of a healthcare plan, I don’t believe that he can get away with imposing it on us. However, this is just the first step in Obama’s plan…there’s more to come – you can believe THAT.

    So, Drew, before your open your uneducated mouth and start spewing whatever comes in your head, do a little reading first. Put your PS3 away for a night and do some research. Being ignorant is no excuse for being an idiot.

    We have the money to pay our bills, this is ridiculous. Our taxes give us more then enough money to pay our debt, this has already been proven. We have a law that says we must pay our debt before we pay anybody else. This shouldn’t even be a talking point, the fact he is threatening us with this means he is willing not to pay the debt if he doesn’t get his way. And that should be an impeachable offense, if not arrestable!

  • Paul Wesley Miracle

  • schistdigger

    You may not THINK there will be “death panels” included for the elderly or seriously ill in Obamacare – BUT in a law filled with personal affronts to the liberty loving, perhaps the most palpably unconstitutional provision introduces the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), a group whose 15 members ARE SELECTED EXCLUSIVELY BY THE PRESIDENT and whose stated purpose is the reduction of Medicare spending. Not only are Board members unelected; neither Congress nor any future president will have veto authority over recommended IPAB cuts unless they can obtain a super-majority (3/5ths) vote in the Senate, a majority in the House, and the president’s signature! Failing these extraordinary requirements, all Board “suggestions” for the reduction of Medicare expense MUST go into effect immediately!
    In short, the IPAB effectively wields more authority than Congress or the President! It is a thoroughly unconstitutional mix of corruption and tyrannical power for which the American people have the Democrat Party and Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts to thank.
    However, as scary as all of that is, it just scratches the surface. In fact, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health care choices. Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated. If this law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United States will effectively have been destroyed.
    The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the U.S. Government. The Congress will be transferring to the Obama Administration authority in a number of different areas over the lives of the American people. >> >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Major portions of this post have been cut and pasted from Michael Connelly Retired attorney, Constitutional Law Instructor Carrollton , Texas and >Doug Book < writing in western center for journalism October 5, 2013 <<<<<<

  • schistdigger

    First, Republicans went for a complete repeal of ObamaCare. When that was met with Democrat resistance, they offered 4 compromises that were also met with resistance by Senate Democrats:
    (following is from -Bob Dufresne)
    Compromise 1- One year delay to review the law that was passed UNREAD – Shut down by Democrats in the Senate.

    Compromise 2- Give individuals the same Equal relief that the POTUS gave to Big Business – Shut down by Democrats in the Senate.

    Compromise 3- Repeal the Medical Device Tax, which BTW had bipartisan support – Shut down by Democrats in the Senate.

    Compromise 4- Negotiate a “Compromise” in Conference Committee WITH SENATE DEMOCRATS – Shut down by Democrats in the Senate.

    So, since the Senate Democrats decided to shut down the Govt., House Republicans decided that it would be a good idea to keep some things going. So, since the shutdown started, they passed bills to:

    1. Pay the military.
    2. Fund lifesaving research.
    3. Open National Parks so that Americanscan enjoy their beautiful country.
    4. Fund Nutritional Food Program for Low-Income Women and Children.
    5. Keep critical veteran’s services running.

    But, STILL, these bills are being blocked by Senate Democrats. The only thing that top Democrats like Reid Pelosi and Obama have to say is, “We won’t negotiate.” and “It’s the Republican’s fault.”
    The compromise score is:
    Republicans- 9
    Democrats- 0

    He has tried to do away with the 1st Amendment by making the hate crime law & stifling free speech. Presidents can’t make laws. Only Congress can make laws. Dictators try. Attempting again to do away with the 1st Amendment, some members of the military have been told not to read books written by conservative authors because it may offend others, asked if they are Christian & if they answer yes are told that is offensive & then ridiculed for it. It’s like being a Christian is now like DADT. At the same time Muslims are allowed to pray five times per day. That seems like a hate crime to me but to Obama it doesn’t because he is a Muslim & wears a Muslim ring on his left hand. He has done away with the 4th Amendment with the NDAA. You are no longer safe in your own home. Again ruling by EO. Presidents cannot make law. Dictators try. He is trying to do away with the 22nd Amendment changing the law to give himself the power to remain in office. He doesn’t have that power. Dictators try to change laws. Again with the !st Amendment threatening Clergy when they use the word Jesus. Only dictators threaten the Constitution. A president never would. He has taken away our freedom of choice of personal health insurance with Ocare. Even if you have your own ins, it still has to pass his guidelines & there will be forced IRS home inspections without notification for certain groups of people. He is trying to do away with the 2nd Amendment as all dictators have done throughout history. If he doesn’t get his way through Congress he simply goes behind their back & does it anyway. He can’t write laws. That isn’t legal. Dictators do. He has given himself the power to assassinate any US citizen of his choosing. Do you think the founders would approve of that under any circumstances? Since he didn’t grow up in this country, he knows nothing of our core values, morals, beliefs or customs. When he arrived, he spent his time in CA, NY & Chicago–three of the worst places to learn any of these things. Maybe that’s why he’s showing such contempt for us now by barricading memorials that aren’t even guarded in the first place. That is just out of pure hatred & spite. These look like the actions of a dictator to me. Just sayin…..

They are well overpaid. He would stop PAYING to keep us from seeing our memorials. There is nobody there in the first place so why pay someone to put up gates to keep us out & someone to arrest us if we don’t? Because he is a mean little brat throwing a hissy fit. He would stop sending money to AQ & the MB & the countries that hate us. He would stop rebuilding mosques in foreign countries. Let the Saudis do that. He would stop the ridiculous grants like that study on overweight lesbians. Who cares? And the genitalia of the male duck. Who cares? Or the effects of drugs AND beer on an 18-yr-old female. Who cares? If we want the government to run properly we should fill it with farmers & fifth graders.

I doubt he wanted the government shutdown- he is the government, and everything that occurs under his presidency will go down in his legacy. There are forces at work in the U.S. government, however, that speed us toward ill, and they go by both democrat and republican. Simply trust in yourself, not the suits.

    All of these comments is just infighting of the American people. This weakens us, folks. Don’t get tricked into dividing yourself into republican and democrat! That helped get us here in the first place. What we need is to unite, now just as much as during the Revolutionary War. From there, no wrong turn will hold weight for us, because nothing can stop unification. All it requires is a gentle heart to accept someone who may think differently than you to create a common achievement, just as our forefathers did in drafting the document that birthed our nation.

    Please, do not degrade yourselves into pandering so. “Retard,” “Uneducated,” “Moron.” This is elementary playground jaunting, people! Do we need teachers to keep us in line still?!

  • trevor

    You people do realize how invalid this post is don’t you? For one, its a blog…… two, their are so many grammatical errors in this article it is sad…… and third, there is this thing called checks and balances. It is impossible or the president to do anything that either the supreme court or congress can shut down. And if that fails, its called impeachment. I get that my comment isn’t grammatically sound, but its a comment, not a blog post claiming that president has the power to do something that he simply doesn’t possess, especially with all of the republicans that have dug us into this mess by fighting Obama every step of the way. Republicans and Democrats alike are a big joke. All they care about is padding their pockets. Screw Party politics, we need politicians who care about the people. I honestly believe that once the close minded baby boom generation has passed, our great country will get back on track. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and I am not trying to be an ass, but the generation in power is extremely closed minded. I am liberal by nature, but I have many conservative ideals, we need people who can see the good and the bad in both sides of that spectrum to lead us back to economic stability and out of unnecessary wars. But again, That is just my opinion, to which I am entitled.

  • Lorde xD

    Actually the Executive Branch IS exempt from Obamacare….as is Congress….as is certain major companies/businesses. If you actually look up, Obama, as with all his buddies, are exempt from Obamacare. During the shutdown, the House has tried to compromise, saying they’ll fund Obamacare IF Obama and his buddies are part of the ACA too. But the Senate (Democrat-majority) AND Obama shot that plan down and said no…..hence the shutdown we’re in. You should really look this stuff up, and research….just saying

  • MitchHoff

    David,

    There is no question about it: I did not care for George W. Bush, I hated his politics, he took us to war in Iraq through lies and innuendo and I did not think he was intellectually or experiencially up to the task. However, he was my President, just as Barack Obama is Karla’s President.

    I travel out of the country quite a bit for my work, and during the Bush years, I found myself in the very awkward position of defending President Bush, because, when abroad, I feel strongly that I am an American first and I have a duty to support my country when I am abroad—but, once I return home, the gloves come off. That is what it means to be a true American.

    I wonder if Karla would do the same.

  • David Whitmore

    Why do you say “tea baggers”?
    This sexually derogatory terminology is as offensive to me as not correctly saying the name of the Democratic Party’s name seems to be to you.
    No, I am not a member of the TEA Party. The acronym TEA stands for “Taxed Enough Already”. But you knew that, didn’t you?
    Side Question: What are individual members of the Democratic Party called?
    The news media’s article’s talk about Democrat or Republican so-and-so; this is why I ask.

    They also seem to be a bit biased; almost always giving the full names of people with their titles, when talking about members of the Democratic Party; yet saying things like “on the other side of the aisle”, or “the Republicans”, or when they do specify an individual they will say “Republican ‘insert full name’ “; only occasionally using their titles along with the individuals last name only.)
    I am not a Libertarian, but it upsets me that none of the various news media will not name Senator Paul’s beliefs and affinity for the Libertarian Party. I am not affiliated with the ‘Independent’ Party, yet there is one Senator that is listed as an Independent. Why does the news media insist on maintaining the illusion that our country does not have more than two (2) political parties.

    May it be because there is no money in it?
    I am also not a member of either the Republican or Democratic Parties, either.

    Back to the point of this missive:

    I’m one of those silly people that try to ascertain each candidate individually; judging for myself whether or not their public views are similar to my own. I also try to investigate, for myself, any of their privately-held views on issues that are important to me. I try not to prejudge any candidate, based on our public news media alone.
    I also try to be as respectful of others, and their opinions, as I would hope they would be toward my own. I’m asking that you please refrain from using derogatory terminology in your comments.

    Thank you.
    Have a great day!

  • Mamagee

    David,
    Where is our top military brass in all this fiasco?
    I, personally, feel that Obama has had a total and complete mental breakdown (and several others along with him. They are all drinking his koolaid). Why has he not been declared mentally incompetent and removed from office? I have heard rumors that he has been treated for a mental breakdown, but, of course, it was on the internet so who knows. From his behavior I would bet that it is true. So what do our top military people plan to do. It is apparent that these crazies are domestic enemies. Will they ever take them into custody as prisioners of war?
    I am 60-year old female and have never been in the military, but I will do anything in my power to protect my children and grandchildren and our once great country. I just need to know what to “do”.

    If 2/3′s of the states wanted to vote to do away with the current government, they could shut down the government, fire everyone and get rid of all the laws and policies that have restricted our freedoms and rights that are at risk now and have been taken through corrupt legislation and overreaching government/politicians. It may be a good idea to start all over again and WE the PEOPLE could have a major say in how this government is run and taking back our rights and freedoms guaranteed to us by the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence…. This whole political thing and government has gone too far by taking away our choices and rights of health care… parenting rights… into our banking systems… housing… denying and restrictions on pray and other religious freedoms for a radical group who wants us dead… property rights… restricting access to our national parks or other historical monuments that many are actually privately owned or run without funds by taxpayers or trying to shut down the ocean…. greed, corruption, selfish and self-centered, hateful, mean, evil…. to gain more power over the people. This Congress better do something because the WE the People are starting to wake up and want the Government out of our private affairs and out of the doctor’s office, bedrooms, schools, bank accounts…. It may have to come to that the states sue and take down the corrupt system and overreaching, beyond the limits the Constitution has empowered them to do. I think the truckers, vets are rallying too, and other groups are starting to come together and force compliance to the will of the people and serve the best interest of the people instead. Don’t say this is impossible to do because there are a lot of things going on that was also considered “never happen is”.

    I have been listening to the Business Channels and have worked on the Hill in DC; it will get tight only if the Administration wants it that way! We have enough tax income every year to cover our bills. The people who should be affected by this are the “non-essential” government employees. And “non-essential” means “not really needed”, so why are we paying them anyway…

  • UncommonStats™

    Since when does a President have the power to write a hit list of American citizens?! He picked one.. bombed him without trial or CHARGES.. then accidentally murdered the guy’s 16yr teenager American born son! These are acts of a King, Warlord, not a President. While this happened two years ago and I was busy making videos about the assassination.. you were probably enjoying a steak and watching the NFL..

    Wake the fuck up.. this shit has been happening since 1776.

  • constitutional patriot

    passing a health care bill that exempts Muslims from forcing them to buy health insurance? singling out Christians in that same bill charging them more than anyone else? a whim on a whim on a whim on a whim. denying military death benefits? bowing down to foreign diplomats? this is the only president to bow, kneel, and kiss the feet of a religious figure. a would be king he is. this president thinks he has the power to do whatever he wants and congress follows him like a line of turkeys walking to the slaughter.(yes I’ve seen it happen) yes he will attempt to shut those states down and most likely succeed. in that time he will try to abolish the constitution that you swore to protect and set up a monarchy or dictatorship with him sitting on the throne. this man is slapping you in the face and making you thank him for it at the same time.

    Thank you for your response.

    It really doesn’t matter at this point to me what she thinks. I gave her post a negative review.
    I also gave yours a positive one. It was logically presented, and well written.
    I spent 20 years in the military. Even prior to my time in the service, I held the office of the President in high esteem. My feelings regarding the individuals filling that Office varied with the individual.
    My personal opinions: John F Kennedy was one of this country’s best Presidents ever; whereas Leslie Lynch King, Jr. (aka Gerald Ford) was one of the worst. I also believe that Jimmy Carter was one of the weakest we’ve ever had. Peace at any cost is not, nor ever was, good for my country. I don’t remember much before Dwight Eisenhower (I was a bit too young then), but I do remember that he was a damn good President. A Warrior devoted to Peace; a paradoxical individual.

    My oath of enlistment, way back when, was just a verbal form of what I had grown up believing. I’ve already sacrificed my physical health and well-being in defense of my country, and I am willing to sacrifice my life in my effort to support and defend my Country and its Constitution.
    Sorry; got carried away.

    Back to topic:
    That is not to say that I agree with, or agreed with, everything that each of the individuals that got elected into office did or said. The Office is worthy of Respect and Honour, and all of its occupants should strive to exceed all of the expectations of all America citizens.
    I need to leave this conversation now before I get carried away again.

    Have a great afternoon.

  • Rusty

    Having checked into it further or trying at least … it may not be considered “affordable” or it is right there I bet just under the wire. But the increase to meet deductable cannot be considered which I of course feel is total BS. Could say premium is $100/ month but deductable is $10,000 effectively 11,200 before insurance starts but affordable at $100/month sh. I am just truly expecting it to bankrupt us and leave us completely homeless.

  • Rusty

    actually Obama says full time is 30 hrs so even part time employees who were getting 32 hrs will now be getting 28 hrs. I do know one gal who will be cut to 4 5hr days and one 4 hr day (she will not get a lunch at work)

  • fan of Dr. Carson

    No, you are wrong

  • LetFreedomRing

    I’m Sooo glad to hear you say that….Unfortunately, it seems to only be the old vets that support the Constitution…Obama went around the other day asking military men if they were willing to shoot and kill Americans…an overwhelming preponderance said “yes” The ones who said “no” have been reassigned overseas

  • LetFreedomRing

    There are thousands of TRUCKERS on their way to Washington DC right now to shut it down and force the arrest and Impeachment of OBAMA and his treasonous cronies (from both sides of the isle) who have spit on our Constitution and our rights

  • LetFreedomRing

    Are you aware that they have reprinted the text books our children are using in school to include a “new bill of rights” as the NWO sees them? They are telling our children that the “old” bill of rights is outdated!
    They are teaching second graders in “history” class that they are to be “good workers” and to listen to authority “without questioning”
    Save our children before they are a generation lost…They are being programed and brainwashed by the NWO’s AGENDA 21

  • LetFreedomRing

    Allowed? The OBAMANATION that would be king can’t ALLOW anything…He is only one part of a three part government who ALL must agree….The powers he has voted himself are UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND TREASONOUS, much like his presidency itself….Foreign nationals are NOT ALLOWED to be an American president, which is what prevented Arnold from running….Obama should have never been allowed on the ballot!
    It’s time WE shut down the government and elect some people in there who are not from the rich and famous, but from the common man, for the common man, and get rid of the career politicians….no body should hold office more than two years MAX, and should not be able to hold more than ONE office in a lifetime!

  • LetFreedomRing

    You could have stopped at fortune 500 and Insurance company….of course your husband knew about it, he’s part of the problem!
    However, the Congress did not get to read the final version which is over 1500 pages, andto those who say, but it was passed legally because everyone wanted it that way
    It was rejected by congress 4 times and Obama over-road it and signed it into law
    And those who say…but the supreme court upheld it
    The Supreme court has upheld allot of unconstitutional things in this and the last administration….They are APPOINTED cronies of the NWO!

  • LetFreedomRing

    Yes…It has already been shown that the OBAMANATION CARE (ACA), costs far more than private single-payer programs and offers far less…..The premiums are already climbing because people are a “captive audience” for them
    The full-time workers are being cut to part time…they cannot sup[port their families on part-time wages and they lose their benefits, so they must come out of their part-time wage pockets to pay $256 per family member and sign up for ACA…this gives the insurance companies more and more money…it also destroys the middle class and makes them the impoverished class who have to apply for food stamps and they lose their homes because they can’t afford their mortgages, so the bank gets to reposes their homes and keep all they have paid in on them….they then get their bank accounts robbed of their hard earned savings by the government in the form of fines and if you can’t pay your fines…you go to jail, well the jails are all full, so that’s where the FEMA camps come in…debtor prisons are once again alive and well and in YOUR neighborhoods
    WAKE THE FUCK UP AMERICA…STOP SPOUTING DIVISIVE HATE SLOGANS AND BELIEVING ANYTHING THE GOVERNMENT TELLS YOU
    WE NEED TO STAND TOGETHER…THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS RICH AND POOR, THERE IS ONLY THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN BEAT DOWN BY THE SYSTEM AND THOSE WHO HAVEN’T SLIPPED ON THE BANANA PEEL YET! THERE IS NO “RACES”..THERE IS ONLY THE HUMAN RACE!

    Look, I love a good conspiracy theory as much as the next guy, but we cannot default on our debts…it’s impossible. We bring in 250 billion every month and our interest payments are 18 billion… this has NOTHING to do with the debt ceiling which only has to do with raising our credit limit. Do I believe Obama would try an end run around the Constitution and basically declare himself King? sure I do. But let’s get our facts straight about the “debt ceiling” and “default”.. two different things.

    There is no valid reason for that. I just find it rare that ANY American President DOES use “logically valid” reasoning for anything. I simply state that this is a problem in all our presidents, not just one. The bulk of the meaning of my comment was simply to implore U.S. citizens and everyone else who dwells within our borders to be ready for the crap the suits may throw at us. It will likely be needed.

  • shara70

    You don’t understand Obama’s roots and the background of the people who helped form his identity as a child. His legacy, and the only one he is truly interested in, will be that he took down the United States of America. Research his mother, his father, his grandparents and his early mentors such as Frank Marshall Davis. Your studies will help you understand Obama’s mentality and the inner space from which he operates from.

  • Will

    This is so F@cking stupid!

  • Stephanie

    Seems this was probably the plan all along. The huge buyout of billions of rounds of ammo, the refusal to create a budget, the tremendous spending, the extravagant vacations, the support of the muslim brotherhood, all the scandals, the push to give amnesty to 11 million illegals that would put a huge strain on our economy, the lies, the threats, the blaming, race baiting, divisive language and playing the blame shame game. He points fingers saying others are terrorists (when that is how he is acting.) The huge influx of IRS, the NSA spying, giving guns to the cartel, common core propaganda, the media propaganda, attempting to destroy our first amendment, the blatant executive orders, the signing of the small arms treaty with the UN. the list goes on and on. We are a nation in DENIAL. This man is not representing America, he is representing anything BUT a Democratic Republic. I hope that every state refuses Federal help, refuses the ACA and gets self sufficient immediately. I would say we need to be planting gardens on every empty lot, on every street in America, so we can tell those scum to stuff their “help” and ban them from our country. Become independently self sufficient, work within your community to make a plan to feed everyone. Give big gov the big boot and lets restore America.

  • Kim

    Sorry, but when I read this section

    “This map shows the biggest TANF, or federal funds to low income
    families, recipients. This is one of the biggest drains on the
    government borrowing from the Social Security and Medicare tax income
    that is received since the 1996 reform. Dark blue indicates the biggest
    percentage per population that receives these funds.
    According to CNBC and the National Counsel of State Legislatures (NCSL)
    the top 15 states to be victims of Obama’s government shutdowns to
    punish the people would be: 15. Oregon, 14. Pennsylvania, 13. Michigan,
    12. Rhode Island, 11. Indiana, 10. New Mexico, 9. Washington, 8.
    Minnesota, 7. New York, 6. District of Colombia (not a state but one of
    the highest per capita welfare recipients), 5. Vermont, 4.
    Massachusetts, 3. Tennessee, 2. Maine, 1. California.”

    And then verify the accuracy of the that listing, I wonder whether I can believe the rest of what the writer is saying. The percentages from the map for these states are in parenthesis.

    15. Oregon(41), 14. Pennsylvania(25), 13. Michigan(31), 12. Rhode Island(45), 11.
    Indiana(29), 10. New Mexico(38), 9. Washington(66), 8. Minnesota(30), 7. New York(41), 6.
    District of Colombia(72) (not a state but one of the highest per capita
    welfare recipients), 5. Vermont(35), 4. Massachusetts(75), 3. Tennessee(39), 2.
    Maine(65), 1. California(80)

    I hope I copied them all done correctly. As you can see the neatly ordered states are, in fact not in order at all. One of them is actually 17th with (30) which makes the ones with less than (30) ranked higher (or taking less federal funding. Not mentioned in this list is: Hawaii (56), Iowa (42), Ohio (39), New Hampshire (42), Connecticut (37), and Delaware (38).

    What I understand the writer to be saying is that the 16 states on this map that drain the government the most are the ones to be shut down. So, if his list does not match the map, then what other information does not match up with reality?

    Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like our government right now, but I want to make that what I am reading is fact and not fiction. I stand behind our flag and Constitution and what they stand for. Please lets print the facts and not scare tactics.

    Thank you

  • Meghan Hall

    I see little about Frank Marshall Davis besides the fact that he was a communist and writer. The FBI tracked him, but they will track almost anyone for anything that seems mildly threatening. Everything I see about his family is positive- though that doesn’t mean anything since internet info is so conflicting oftentimes. But let’s focus on Davis for time’s sake. What is so terrible about him? I hope it isn’t simply that he is communist.

He is broken almost every constitutional Law and is trying to rewrite them to suit his own need, while flushing America down the toilet. Stand up America This has been his primary goal ever since he stepped into office. Let us join together and take America back.The Fema camps are nothing but concentration camps just like Hitler had. And I am afraid for America that Obama is planing the same thing for America that Hitler did to the Jews.

    Correct me if I am wrong when I say this but

    Shut Down Over Oboma Care is more like a hostage situation (we do not negotiate with terrorist).

    I must ask the republicans a question. I am confused on the shutdown.
    the republicans want to shut down the country over a bill that was voted
    on an passed by the country. It is like sitting on the field with
    spoiled sport because you lost. I mean in my eyes
    the republicans are doing this because they lost the vote on Obama Care
    and you expect us as Americans to vote for you. You put a big part of
    the country out of work because you mad. Sounds like the work of a bitch
    to me

    Someone just brought something up to me that makes the
    situation funny. The GOP has shut down the country because of Oboma Care
    but it in no way affects Oboma Care. The only people that you are
    hurting are the people who already vote Republican and the ones that you
    are trying to get to vote Republican

    If I use a credit card, then that in itself means I dont have any money. So for me to get to the maximum limit (5000 in your example), Ive just spent 5000 that I never had. I never worked for it, it wasnt mine, so I have zero reason to pay it back. Especially going in knowing these credit companies are pretty much all greed based anyway. The problem IS that credit exists. Credit is the problem. If you dont have the money, you go without and save until you do. This mafia mentality of ‘you owe me now’ is just that, an extortion tactic. INSTEAD of credit, pay fair wages, stop running an economy on greed and profit, eliminate ALL credit AND electric/card money. Stocks are a scam, banks are a scam, credit is a scam.

Do you actually think the people who sell that crap actually BELIEVE the sky is falling?

    Actually, it’s full-time EQUIVALENT employees. That means there can be 1 full-time employee that works eight hours each day, or it could be eight part-time employees that work one hour each day (or any variation that equals eight hours). Either way, both examples equal one full-time equivalent employee. I fill out medical applications on behalf of people for Blue Cross Blue Shield and this is training I just completed.

    Any business that has two or more FTE employees is required to offer health insurance to them, otherwise they have to pay a fine when they file their taxes. Small businesses with 50 or fewer FTE employees could be eligible to receive assistance from the government in paying the insurance premiums. A small business that only has 1 FTE employee (and this could be four employees that work two hours per day or just one employee that works eight hours per day) does not have to offer health insurance.

    There are exemptions for people. If you’re Native American or Alaskan Native, facing a hardship (e.g. death in the family, job loss), unable to afford insurance, or you’re a member of a religion that doesn’t believe in health care (you have to prove you’re a member of a church or congregation that has this belief AND they’re recognized by the gov’t), then you are exempt from health insurance and do not have to pay a fine/tax for not having it.

    I’m reading a lot of comments here, and it’s clear a LOT of people do not understand how the Affordable Care Act works.

    Although I agree the spelling mistake shouldn’t be there as they should proof-read their articles prior to publication, I, however, don’t agree that the spelling mistake makes the whole article bullshit. America is going down like a lead balloon and has been for some time. It is starting to accelerate and a lot of wall street people are totally focused on the deadline date (Oct 17). If the US defaults on the debt it is ‘holy fuck’ for the whole world. But if we raise the debt ceiling is it ‘holy fuck’ for those who buy the debt as the debt levels skyrocket. So, either way it is a ‘holy fuck’ scenario.

    Once the Great Pretender declares Martial Law, he can do any damn thing he wants and no one can stop him. If you remember what happened in Boston after the bombing you would remember scenes of armored cars with SWAT type troops entering homes and taking people out and searching for weapons. The Great Impostor has his FEMA camps already in place to house anyone deemed a terrorist (if you are Republican, Conservative, Christian, white, you are a terrorist). He will cancel all elections and shut this country down tighter than a can of sardines. Remember, he has 38,000 foreign troops in this country under the guise of training.

    The States need what is called a Constitutional Convention in order to consider leaving the Union. If this Great Pretender does what the article says he will do, the Constitutions of those states will be voided, their Governor replaced and their legislature dissolved. I would suggest moving to Texas.

    The House continues to offer the President a simple and fair path forward: (1) offer the same Obamacare waivers to individuals and families that you’ve offered to big business and labor unions and (2) ensure that the President, his White House team, his agency heads and Congress are all pushed into Obamacare in the same way that so many American families are. In other words, apply the law equally to everyone, or don’t force it on anyone. The President has yet to sit down at any negotiating table to explain to America why such a request isn’t patently fair to everyone…

    Or the usurper in the White House can be declared what he really is, and usurper, and arrested for it.

    You are nuts – Congress shut down the government – Mr. Obama did not personally do it – they are all at fault.

  • Texasbranguslady

    That’s a lie – congress and all the people who work for congress and the President have to get their insurance through the AHCA just like others who do not have insurance. Get your facts straight lady.

    “If we have insufficient cash on hand, it would be impossible for the United States of America to meet all of its obligations,” said Treasury Secretary, Jack Lew, on Wednesday. This statement by Lew is only true IF United States does not have the cash to pay its’ bills. However, the U.S. DOES have the revenue to pay the interest AND the principle on its’ debt. The ONLY way we would default on our debt is if the government refused to pay that debt.

  • Mary St. George

    This is all a bunch of hogwash in the way the information is presented. We are becoming a laughing stock to other countries. We used to be the world leader and now we spend more time ripping our country apart instead of showing leadership qualities. It is not just the left or right. It is all political parties and it is a distraction to what really controls this country. Just follow the money and forget the rhetoric. If we keep bashing each other, we will become a crippled divided country and be vulnerable to attack. It is time to start acting like a “United” nation instead of a bunch of spoiled little brats.

  • Mary St. George

    Where do people get the idea that the President shut down the parks? The budget is controlled by Congress. That is their constitutional responsibility. If people continue to hate each other and throw their poison darts around, that is all that will be left…a bunch of poisoned minds. Building his own army, are you on drugs? Where is this army coming from ? Start thinking from logic and not evil spin just to make people irate and pass along bad information..

  • Mary St. George

    Congress has always been exempt from everything. And of course they are exempt, just as I am. I already have my own healthcare plan. That means I do not need to sign up. Companies in the past did the same thing to prevent having to supply retirement plans, pay for holidays etc., That is why my occupation is completely a contract occupation. That way the people we do work for 40 hrs a week do not have to contribute to anything. I pay all of my own expenses such as Social Security, health insurance, income taxes etc.

  • Mary St. George

    Only Congress can shut down the government and they did. The president has no incentive or power to shut down the government. I am amazed that supposedly intelligent people come up with such off the wall ideas.

  • Zaphod Smith

    Where did you see me say the President has the power to shut down the government? I’m amazed that supposedly intelligent people haven’t learned to read. As far as incentive goes I would have to disagree if he has nothing to gain from it then why are the orders to make things harder on the general public coming out of the white house and not Congress?

  • A retired Vietnam Vet

    More B.S. from the Ultra Right Wingnuts. We have been through several shutdowns in the past and will see more in the future. The GOP KNOWS they are in trouble now because of the Teabagger’s and they are grasping at straws trying to keep afloat.

  • A retired Vietnam Vet

    DHS was built by your IDOL GWB (aka Baby Bush)! The GOP shut down the Government with their LONG list of demands and are now acting like 2 year olds in the store that just got told they can’t have that toy they wanted! They can’t expect to have a shutdown of just the parts that they don’t like yet keep open the parts they do like! They got their shutdown, now WE ALL have to live with it!

  • Kernighan

    This is part of what ostensibly looks like a contingency plan within one of the emergency agencies, presumably DHS. I think I’ve seen this also on Infowars.com and perhaps on the Blaze. I’d bet if a mere far sweeping healthcare act can cause such extensive D.C. difficulty, that trying to shut down the existing states would cause political armageddon. One big problem is that Congress has no police power. It cannot use DOJ to help it act against wrongful actors in the administration, if the administration will not cooperate.

  • Wake Up

    Congress is not exempt to the law, but they ARE exempt to the effects of the law. While Main Street’s insurance costs went up under Obamacare, so did Congress’s and their staffers. They were given a subsidy, at taxpayer expense, to make up the difference. Did you get your subsidy?

  • DeirdreTours

    Wake-up– Obama care went into effect two weeks ago and policy costs were LESS that originally projected not MORE. Congressional staff HAD been covered by employer paid insurance, JUST like most employees of large employers. The are now going into the exchanges and are being subsidized to the EXACT cost of their previous insurance.

    No, I didn’t get a subsidy. I ALREADY have insurance through my husband’s employer. BUT- one of my closest friends (divorced, living in Mississippi with an income of $12,500 last year) just got Silver level insurance through the federal exchange at a cost of $270 for the ENTIRE YEAR and capped out of pocket expenses of less than $2300. She is really luck that she wasn’t poorer- Because Mississippi refused the medicare expansion, had she made 11k last year and been under the poverty line, her policy would have cost about 5k.

    Here is a link to an online calculator for cost of exchange plans: http://kff.org/interactive/subsidy-calculator/

  • DeirdreTours

    Rusty- here is a link to an online calculator which will show you exactly what an exchange policy will cost: http://kff.org/interactive/subsidy-calculator/
    The policies offered DO NOT have 10k deductibles! You can choose from three levels of plan, bronze (higher deductible, but not 10k) silver and gold.

  • DeirdreTours

    Letfreedomring– This is simply not true! Here is an link to an online calculator which will show you exactly what the three levels of policies will cost at your income level (bronze, silver and gold). Premiums are LOWER than expected and FAR, FAR lower than private policies (of equal coverage) were last year.

    http://kff.org/interactive/subsidy-calculator/

  • DeirdreTours

    Rusty– she should check out the exchanges then. Depending on her income level, she may pay far less for better coverage. Here is a link to an online calculator for exchange policy cost:

    http://kff.org/interactive/subsidy-calculator/

  • DeirdreTours

    I have read large sections and don’t find it any more difficult than any modern statute. It is overly detailed– but that is because congress was unwilling to allow the kind of broad leeway in implementation that say, the canadians, did (their statute was 3 pages). If you want to micromanage ever bit of the implementation, then the law will run many, many pages.

  • DeirdreTours

    You are a little right, WE are the government. EACH AND EVERYONE OF US who casts a vote is the government.

  • DeirdreTours

    Uh, no.

  • DeirdreTours

    Canadians do not come to the US for emergency care- ever. Emergency care in Canada is better for everything except gunshot wounds (they don’t get enough practice at that). Very wealthy Canadians sometimes come to the US for ELECTIVE surgery.

  • DeirdreTours

    Meghan– The credit ceiling rise is to pay for spending ALREADY APROVED AND SPENT BY CONGRESS. To vote against raising the debt ceiling is like going to a restaurant, ordering a bunch of food, and then refusing to pay the check when the waiter brings it.

    It was not “sneaked” by the court!

    She didn’t that is a myth spread by right wingers.

  • DeirdreTours

    Huh, if the ACA ruins insurance companies that is big news to Wall Street. Insurance stocks have done very, very, well in the last three years.

  • DeirdreTours

    Ar-15– There is no mechanism for the president to “unilaterally” change the law. Please cite a specific example, with statute number and section of a law changed by the president.

  • Zaphod Smith

    Believe what you want. I’ll stick with the forefathers and the Constitution.

  • DeirdreTours

    My husband’s employer pays over 80% of the cost of my policy! Most large employers offer heavily subsidized health insurance to their employees in order to attract good employees. Government workers are not getting anything more than any other employee of a big company.

  • DeirdreTours

    THERE is NO WAIVER.

  • DeirdreTours

    They did get to read it– The senate aproved the ACA on December 21, the house voted on it nearly 6 WEEKS later- they had plenty of time to read it. In fact, they passed a second bill immediately after with various changes to way the funding/taxes would work. They must have read enough of it to know what they wanted to change.

  • DeirdreTours

    Another totally crazy myth! Show me the place in the ACA that exempts muslims.

  • Keith

    Yo Terry you tool. All tax laws need to originate in the house. This bill originated in the Senate. Therefore it is illegal ….. By the way are you signed up Terry or you just running your mouth. Libtard.

  • DeirdreTours

    His evil plan to make sure that every citizen can afford to see a doctor? Pelosi said no such thing. The ‘tax” interpretation of the court is utterly irrelevant to the law when it was under discussion.

  • DeirdreTours

    Tracey, You might want to check out the cost of a policy through the exchange. If your employer was refusing to provide health care when you were full time, you might find that the lower cost of getting coverage through the exchange makes up for the lost hours. Really, many low and middle income people will pay 5-15 thousand dollars a year LESS with an exchange policy than with a private policy. Here is a link to a policy cost calculator: http://kff.org/interactive/subsidy-calculator/

  • DeirdreTours

    I agree that both parties suck, but the Democrats suck significantly less than the Republicans. I do have a small business (truly small, I gross less than 200k per year) and two part time employees. I don’t find the regulation that onerous, I file monthly, quarterly and annual tax documents of various types and pay my taxes.

  • DeirdreTours

    Gosh, that’s an informed response! I do agree that Obama is beholden to corporation, exactly like Republican politicians. This results from our deeply flawed campaign contribution laws.

  • DeirdreTours

    The ACA was passed by both houses and signed by the president. Period. The house is trying to blackmail the rest of us into taking back the law that was legally passed.

  • DeirdreTours

    Wow, WalMart JUST STARTED during Obama? I had no idea! I thought WalMart had been abusing low paid workers, keeping them part time, firing them if they try to unionize, locking them in at night, etc for the last 30 YEARS. Oh, and your bizarre muslim stuff is just crazy.

  • DeirdreTours

    I come from this country, the state of South Carolina, to be exact. Family has been here since 1742. Typical of your type to assume that anyone who disagrees with you must be foreign. But, although you are entitled to your own opinion, you are not entitled to your own set of facts. The reality is that that a small part of the house has refused to raise the debt ceiling unless they can blackmail the rest of us into not proceeding with implementing a law that was legally passed in both houses and signed into law by the president.

  • DeirdreTours

    Oh, so you are one of the crazies who keep insisting the president wasn’t born in the US state of Hawaii. Well, that explains it.

  • DeirdreTours

    Oh Ron, it must be nice to try imagine all who disagree with you as powerless and incompetent. Though, it must be hard to reconcile that belief the resounding reelection of the president? I am plump, middle aged mother of three with a thriving small business, a well employed husband and a top 1% income.

    As a young woman, I was lucky enough to travel the world for five years as a Pan Am flight attendant. I was able to see what the world is really when capitalism is totally unregulated (an awful mess with lots of desperate, violent poor and gated communities of the rich, like Brazil) AND able to see firsthand what a disaster Russia was in the late 1980s. I also found that most of Western Europe had solved several problems that we hadn’t.

  • DeirdreTours

    How do you convince yourself that the DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED president being overthrown by violence is a defense of the democratic process????

  • DeirdreTours

    This is not true– the colonies had VERY different religious traditions. Some had laws that forbade Baptists (who were widely hated at the time) or Quakers from holding office. The constitution specifically forbade this practice or the establisment of a state religion. Yes, many founding fathers were Christians. But many were not. AND, none were fundamentalists, they were very proud of the Enlightenment and the intellectual flowering that followed.

  • DeirdreTours

    Under the Bush presidency, the attorney general’s office spent over two years exhaustively searching for cases of voter fraud. They found it to be almost non existent.

  • Keith

    Speaking of your own set of facts. It was rammed down the throats of the American people without ONE REPUBLICAN VOTE. In your small mind saying that is was you passed by both houses is just a lie or you are misinformed. It is a Tax and all tax bills MUST ORIGINATE IN THE HOUSE. This one originated in the SENATE> And even if I give you that it is law as you say. Then that means the MUSLIM IN CHIEF cannot pick what parts he wants to enforce and which parts he wont. No exemptions to his big business donors or any other form of change. IF ITS LAW THEN THE WHOLE LAW MUST BE ENFORCED …… The problem is the rape of the public by hospitals and doctors and the whole medical profession for that matter. This is a way to pay for the 15 dollar aspirin instead of regulating how much a hospital or Doctor can charge for one. It only favors the insurance companies and big Pharma. Obama himself said raising the debt ceiling was a failure of leadership when he was a senator and Bush was President. He sings a different tune now that he is in charge.So you are either a blind follower lib or just don’t have a clue and you are spewing what Chris Matthews told you or repeating what you heard on MSNBC. Either way that makes you a TOOL … Have a nice day !!

  • Keith

    And they made 4 separate offers. The last one delayed it for a year. And dirty Harry Riediculious refused to even read any of them. So its the Dems that are not willing to budge. The Repubs have already sent them 4 different bills …. The dems turned them all down and refused to negotiate. So they shut the gubmint down … Don’t correct my spelling either. Its a form of disrespect for this administration.Have a nice day …

  • Rusty

    no her deductible is $2500 ($1900 increase) $3547 increase in premium over the old $1230/yr so almost 400% of what she was paying but hey she has maternity care now despite being near 50 and having had a hysterectomy. lol Thank you for the link. Deidra

  • Tracey Sparks

    actually, my son used to qualify for healthy start insurance… which is free. i make around 36k and i did not qualify for anything, but didn’t really care as long as he was taken care of. i figured out how to see my doctor for 20.00 if i need to go and my meds i have to take for my heart are 4.00 a month. once this market opened, i received a letter from the state saying they shut off my son’s insurance. he is currently uninsured because i don’t qualify. so yes, i did look in to the market. it’s 300.00 a month for insurance for the both of us. if i figured out how to see my doctor for 20.00 and my meds are 4.00 a month. i’d say 300 a month is a huge LEAP in cost for me that i can not afford.

  • DeirdreTours

    Tracy, When I plug 36k and family of two with on child into the Affordable care calculator I get this response:

    Amount you pay for the premium:
    $2,673 per year

    (which equals 7.42% of your household income and
    covers 64% of the overall premium)
    You could receive a government tax credit subsidy of up to:
    $1,472
    (which covers 36% of the
    overall premium)
    So, your monthly premium would be $222 for the silver policy (the mid level) that covers all preventive care at 100% with no deductible, the deductible for all other care is no more than $2000 and has a maximum out of pocket of $10k (so if you or your child has a serious issue, say cancer or a major accident, you would not be bankrupted).

    I assume you know that Healthy Start insurance is Medicaid, right? Your son’s eligibility for medicaid is not negatively affected by the ACA. He probably grew out of the covered age group for your income level in your state. If your state is one of the 26 who refused to expand Medicaid as the ACA originally required, it is solely your state government that is denying free coverage to your child. Slashing funding for Medicaid is one of the goals of the Republican party.
    I am curious as to how you have worked out a $20 doctor visit bill– I can only assume that it is either a government funded program or a charity care program as no private doctors charge $20 for an office visit.

  • DeirdreTours

    If your wife had a premium of $1230 a year, then the remainder was covered by her employer. The ACA does not increase the cost of decent employer based insurance. So, either the plan that she had did not cover the basics (which in now illegal) or her employer is lying about the reasons for the hours reduction.

  • Gouchybear

    You are so full of crap, no one but the dems had access to the final draft of the bill BEFORE THE VOTE WAS TAKEN. The Republicans were not given sufficient time (less than 2 hours) to read all 2,800 pages (NOT 1,200 as you claim) before the vote. Go on YouTube and look up the news clips of Nancy Pelosi stating “you have to pass the bill in order to read what’s in it”.

  • Bob160

    Have you ever worked IN government? Your department SPENT x amount last year and if you don’t spend x amount this year YOU DON’T GET IT. You get “the amount next year that you spent this year”. Do you plan on taking “the hair cut”. So the GSA goes to Las Vegas and has a party on YOUR dollar. Wonderful. Now they have spent X dollars and get it next year. COULD WE START WITH ZERO EACH YEAR AND SAVE THE WASTE. YES, yes we can. However the CULTURE in Washington DC is “lets do whatever we can to keep this free ride going and get re-elected”. After which they move across the street to K street to lobby for “special interests” at a high dollar price. Politicians are no longer a Citizen Class but a “Ruling Class” and you are their SURF. YOU are being FARMED. You are their CASH COW. SPENDING IS THE PROBLEM AND CONGRESS/SENATE IS THE CAUSE. It is in the constitution that the bills will be paid. I.E. there will be “no default”. And raising the debt limit only protracts the ability to OVERSPEND on whatever they WANT. More pork to keep them elected. It is more like the POLITICIANS ate the lunch at the restaurant and is now asking the chef (public taxed to provide it) to pay the bill. 50% taxed is 50% slave. Now with ObamaCare you could not afford insurance but will now be fined for not being able to afford it. THANKS.

  • Bob160

    And if you have to wait a year to treat your near terminal condition you come from Canada down to the states and get it treated ….and live. Forget Americans.

    Most of this is just bull. All states and not just Texas can fly their flag at the same height as the American Flag in the proper configuration of flag poles. Also, the 14th Amendment requires that the government pay on the debt before any other funding, and folks seem to forget that the tax revenue is coming in every day just like always. Only 17% of the government is shut down and if the President would ever submit a 1 year budget like the Constitution requires him to do, it might make things a little clearer on who is the culprit behind the whole mess.

  • david

    how the fuck do you know what i am. do you hear my thoughts are you psychic… no you are not higher minimum wage is more taxes for the government to take and less benefits they would have to dish out to poor people you idiot. i am sure the god damn fat cats sitting in thier 50,000 dollar office chairs could stand to make a couple million dollars less in bonuses a year so that the people who make money for them can have a decent life. you probably have a good life and say fuck everyone else. well you know what fuck you.

  • david

    little do you know that pretty much anyone making minimum wage is qualified for food stamps and government assistance. instead of the government making up for rich people being so greedy they need to step up and make the whiny bastards pay what is fair. so the government is paying billons of dollars in food stams so that corporations can keep breaking peoples backs for chump change… doesnt make sense open your narrow mind asshole

    lol so i ttake it you are one of those rich people. well its your fault or government is in debt. if you paid your employees a fair wage to keep up with times then the government wouldnt HAVE to pick up the slack you create by creating obamacare and handing out food stamps to pretty much any person making minimum wage. poor people arent asking for riches and gold to be handed to them they are asking for a chance to be able to pay their bills. feed their family… something you take for granted. if the shoe was on the other foot you probably wouldnt even know where to beginas far as finding a decent job. all the millions of people who are top of the ladder ceos presidents vice presidents of coorporations dont fuckig care plain and simple and this country is going to keep being in debt until all you greedy bastards stop feeding us the load of bullshit that you do saying oh you could live off 5 dollars an hour…HOW!!! i want people like you to be cut off from all of your assets for a 3 months. i want you to not be able to touch a dime of your money except be able to have 120 bucks a week wich is on average what a person making minimum wage working 20-15 hours a week makes and tell me you can survive wihout help. if you can do that i will shut my mouth until then you are nothing more than a greedy pig.

  • david

    oh by the way just so you know most electric bills average about 200 bucks in the summer and 150 bucks in the winter leaving you with only about 300 dollars each month to pay rent… oh dont forget food if you want to eat unhealthy processed foods like banquet meals thats gonna run you 50 bucks a week. oh car insurance if you have a car. also health care if you want to survive oh wow i named off 4 things and its already in the negative! haha you are such a god damn idiot. i hope rich greedy people like you burn in hell for your arrogance and lack of compassion for people who just want to be able to survive.

    somewhere along the lines a monkey named george bush and a wrench named obama got thrown into the machine. how anybody ever thought they would be good tools to fix our system is beyond me.its sad that during my life i have seen way more bad presidents then good ones.

  • ckirmser

    Ah, the sign of a liberal; demand silence when uncomfortable.

  • Clifford Fargason

    Actually David, it is almost exactly the reverse. I just took the numbers of EOs by each president, and divided by the number of years in office (Obama gets only the years to date) to get the average number of EOs per year. The results follow, sorted by highest down to lowest:

    President Yrs Total EOs Avg
    Franklin D. Roosevelt (D) 12 3466 288.8
    Herbert Hoover (R) 4 995 248.8
    Harry S. Truman (D) 8 893 111.6
    John F. Kennedy (D) 2 213 106.5
    Jimmy Carter (D) 4 319 79.8
    Richard Nixon (R) 5 345 69.0
    Dwight D. Eisenhower (R) 8 481 60.1
    Gerald R. Ford (R) 3 168 56.0
    Lyndon B. Johnson (D) 6 323 53.8
    Ronald Reagan (R) 8 380 47.5
    William J. Clinton (D) 8 363 45.4
    George Bush (R) 4 165 41.3
    Barack Obama (D) 4 162 40.5
    George W. Bush (R) 8 290 36.3

    (Edited: Evidently disqus doesn’t like tabs or extra spaces, so the nicely lined up table that I originally input lost it’s alignment.)

  • Clifford Fargason

    I don’t like Obama, but as far as original Executive Orders go, he currently has the lowest number, and the next to lowest average of Executive Orders per year in office. GWB has the lowest average.

  • Clifford Fargason

    Would you care to reference the law that limits the president’s power to issue Executive Orders? I, for one, would love to be able to read the source documentation on that.

  • Clifford Fargason

    Not Marines, Seal Team 6 (Navy) were the ones who pulled off the raid.

  • Clifford Fargason

    You really need to do more research. It was Seal Team 6 that pulled the actual raid.

  • Mike Boatman

    So far none of the dire predictions in the article came about, just like the huge computer crash on 1-1-2000, nada amigos. Stuff your ‘rroids back in and wait for the next Chicken Little.
    Do I trust obama? HeII No! Do I think obama is capable of doing some really dangerous Shiite? HeII Yes!
    just save your spunk for the real deal guys

    I did and no reply..i signed petitions and they didn’t work..you think these a-holes will listen? they only care about money. It’s not about smarts..it’s about who has all the money. It’s about control! WAKE UP AND GIVE A DARN ABOUT OUR FREEDOM.

    Ever taken an ambulance ride here in Canada? I don’t know what you’re smoking, but it’s certainly NOT free for any Canadian citizen. You are billed for each ride, personally, and if you don’t believe me just try it.

  • Orthospinedoc

    Maybe not emergency surgery but MRI’s, bypass surgery, Orthopaedic procedures, spine surgery and the list goes on and on…get a clue. Point in hand the highest density of MRI machines in the USA are located along the US/Canadian border…specifically Syracuse, Rochester and Detroit areas…why do you think that is…because it takes sometimes up to a,year to get one in Canada…so if you have a simple meniscal tear that if detected and treated early and appropriately in most instances problem solved…but if left to go for a,year or more degenerative arthritis settles in and instead of a relatively minor meniscal repair or even appropriate non-surgical treatment it typically doesn’t progress or does at a much slower rate but if not detected and not treated appropriately you potentially looking at a total knee etc….and these places give Canadians a huge cash discount…so tell me why again why is the Canadian medical system is so good…think before you speak…because you don’t have a clue what you’re talking about…by the way I invested in several of those MRI’s thanks Canadians for all that extra cash…keep it coming.

  • Orthospinedoc

    By the way there is no such thing as a free lunch…somebody pays and I’m sure it comes with a tax burden on the Canadian people one way or another!

  • jane

    when this happens someone is to releave the president of his dutys and that i believe would be our vice president. i really do not think our military is going to allow another country to come in and take over. if our gov is having problems paying the dept back then they need to give up some pay and help pay it. if they get rid of all the illegals in the united states then united states citizens can get jobs back and start paying into the system. is the govt pee ons that stupid to figure this out? it does not take a well educated person to figure this out. each state has a right to enforce their laws. start rounding illegals up and deport them. send their off springs with them back to their countrys. let their govts take care of them.

  • Orthospinedoc

    Yeah and congress is supposed to be the only ones to declare war….and Obama was willing to do that without congress’ approval!’

  • me

    Thats not the only thing he is doing he will be shutting down the power grid east to west or west to east on Nov. 13 and 14 too.

  • me

    Dont you know he thinks he is a king, and his wife thinks she is a queen. Someone needs there meds.

  • Paul Riley

    get your head out of obamas ass its obvious you voted for him hes killing america and your the one that will stand back and watch as it happens go ahead sheep and let him lead you to slaughter as fo me im wth nick and dave ill fight to the death for my rights

  • Jessica Quick

    a whole lot of people voted for Obama and did not understand what his agenda really was that’s why he’s president they believed the lies without looking any deeper
    so yes lots of people would have voted for it every congressman and woman who voted yes unless your are a lawyer specializing in political law YOU CAN”T READ THE DAMN TRY IT YOU WILL SEE WHAT I MEAN 10,565 pages of the article referring to that article referring to that sub chapter it’s not written to be read

  • Jessica Quick

    in case you haven’t notice this administration doesn’t care about what the Constitution says they can or can not do .It does whatever it wants

  • Jessica Quick

    I think there might be more truth in that than we know

  • Jessica Quick

    no the harry reid shut it down when he refused to bring the bill passed by the house to the floor for a vote

  • Sandy McClendon

    AMEN, David. I’m there with you as a Veteran and I love my country too much to let an ego maniac destroy Her.

    Thank You Richard, Just did that

  • Iron Tub

    lol.full blown

    I am sure that was too much for her to comprehend all at one time. Perhaps you should put it in cartoon form

    I would go slap your teacher if I were you

  • Zaphod Smith

    You betcha I’ve noticed.. I also see that my post is slightly off.. The Constitution does not grant them the power to fine us for not having a health care plan.

  • Ken Con Reeves

    Yep, all those things happened… not so much on that checkmate.. mate…

  • Deborah A

    Deidre,
    We get this stuff from honest reporting and research that isn’t paid for by liberals and foreign governments. In case you haven’t noticed the change that Obama has promised has been old people and kids being massacred in their own homes by police and SWAT teams; constitutional rights being declared unconstitutional every day; thousands of regulations that promote business (job) destruction; and spying on EVERYONE. This is not the America that I grew up in and is not as the founding fathers intended it.

  • Deborah A.

    He is not a part of this, because he is better than us. He is king Obama- or so he thinks.

  • Blue

    President Obama needs to punish all Americans including his own color responsible for all the ills of his old country and all Muslim deaths and anything we have previously done to blacks even though we aren’t responsible to be punished anyway he can get it done and that means to destroy our country and people are allowing this to happen. Your not voting to get rid of him was the fault of all of us. SHAME ON US! Our lives are going to change and not for the best.

  • ForTheMusic

    who is him? Obama?

  • ForTheMusic

    i didn’t do anything to blacks, you did something to them?

  • Keta Williams Blue

    Most of the time when people put he or him in the middle of a sentence they are talking about God right? And president or not…the final say so at the end of the day belongs to God, so pretty much that’s who I am talking about.

  • Elizabeth Garcia

    Mr Fullerton what do you think about him taking the veterans pensions?

  • David Fankhauser

    Carry: I may sound like a radical, but I was flag wavin’ red-blooded country lovin’ man long before I served our beloved American in the Army in the early 80′s. I am dismayed and angered to see the many changed and not for the better since I got out of the service. I am like a lot of my fellow service members in that we dislike in the strongest terms the direction the man in the White House is allowing the country to go because he is doin’ nothing. There are more kin this country that are willing to put a stop to all the shinnaniguns than there are that want all the hand outs. It is all a matter of timing.

    Interesting “food for thought” …
    ———————————————————————–

    When
    I asked my colleague, the Army Colonel, why he thinks Obama is doing
    this ( firing Senior Military leaders, procuring millions of rounds of
    ammunition and small arms for Homeland Security Administration) the
    reply I received from this life-long soldier and Army leader shocked me.

    Paraphrasing him, this is what he told me in a nutshell.

    He
    said, most branches of the service routinely engage in war “games” and
    come up with strategies and tactics on how to handle every type of
    military conflict and scenario that can be imagined . One of the big
    new battle scenarios being actively discussed in the military recently
    is how to handle civil unrest in the U.S. and fighting in the streets.
    What will the Army do if called in to fight armed civilians in the
    streets of the United States? How will that urban warfare be
    conducted? Will troops be able to fire upon other American citizens
    when the troops take an oath to protect American citizens?

    He
    said many in the military are discussing the very real possibility that
    Obama will attempt to stay in office beyond two terms. It is being
    speculated that Obama will do this by declaring a state of martial law.
    The easiest way to declare martial law is when there is massive civil
    unrest and riots throughout the U.S. Thus, it is believed that Obama,
    and his regime, will intentionally create a situation of massive civil
    unrest. Some believe he has already started to implement that strategy
    by forcing Obamacare on everyone (when the populace did not ask for it
    and less than 300 people in
    power voted for it). Perhaps the Obama Administration is not too
    concerned over the totally dysfunctional Obamacare website and the
    additional fact that millions will be dropped from their existing
    insurance policies which they already had and liked. The Obama
    Administration may not care if getting health care becomes more
    difficult and more expensive because it is all leading toward civil
    unrest. It is believed by some that Obamacare will only get worse and
    worse, and then in 2 to 3 years when people have a very difficult time
    getting medical treatment for themselves or their loved ones, people
    will get enraged.

    Moreover,
    it is being speculated that around the same time when the frustration
    levels over Obamacare are hitting a critical point in 2 to
    3 years, there will be a “glitch” in the welfare payment (or EBT) payment system.

    The
    tens of millions who rely on EBT handouts to sustain themselves will be
    cut off.
    The overwhelming majority of the EBT recipients are Black. The Obama
    regime will then blame the “glitch” on the Republicans, i.e.,
    Republicans froze government spending which “forced” Obama to suspension
    of EBT payments. (Obama will intentionally drive spending up and up
    uncontrolled knowing full well that one day the Republicans will be
    backed into a corner and finally vote for a freeze in spending.) Obama
    will create heightened racial tension by telling everyone that the White
    Republicans are racially motivated and did this to hurt the Black
    community. This manufactured racial tension, combined with growing
    tensions over the then-collapsing medical coverage due to Obamacare,
    will result in race wars and civil unrest. People will take to the
    streets.

    By
    the way, you should know that my colleague, the Army Colonel who is
    telling me all this, is Black. He specifically commented, and outwardly
    expressed his embarrassment, about how Blacks have become so dependent
    and enslaved by the welfare system and the Democrats that it would be
    very easy to create civil unrest and race wars merely by cutting off, or
    dramatically hindering, EBT payments for only a month or so. He
    believes that most Blacks, who have a misguided sense of entitlement,
    will then take to looting stores and rioting.

    Once
    the race wars, civil unrest, and violence becomes pervasive throughout
    the U.S., Obama will declare martial law and take over.
    Elections can, and will, be postponed under martial law.

    My colleague noted that this possibility
    is clearly being analyzed and discussed inside the military because
    such a martial law strategy is nothing new. Tyrannical and dictatorial
    leaders in the past have done the martial law strategy many times. He
    noted that dictators such as Stalin, Mussolini, and Hitler did basically
    the identical thing. He went on to say that one of the most recent
    examples of this strategy was when Marcos declared martial law in the
    Philippines from 1972-1981 due to civil unrest. The Philippines had
    democratic elections up until that time. When martial law was declared,
    the Philippine constitution was suspended, its Congress dissolved, all
    elections were suspended, and Marcos remained in power for years beyond
    his elected term. The alleged “terrorist bombings” that occurred in the
    Philippines, which lead to Marcos declaring martial law, have always
    been questioned and
    never proven to be the acts of actual terrorists.

    He
    concluded by saying that many believe this is the real reason behind
    the purging of military generals. The older members of the military,
    and especially its generals and leaders, tend to be more conservative
    and they believe in the Constitution—and following the Constitution.
    Thus, a tyrant and dictator needs to get rid of these military leaders
    before a state of martial law is declared if the rising dictator wants
    the military to follow along and do what the dictator says. Due to the
    loss of many
    experienced military leaders the past few years, the military is now
    being run and guided more and more by younger, inexperienced leaders.
    The type who won’t really know what to do if martial law was declared.
    Moreover, he noted that there is a growing mindset throughout the
    military now that every soldier needs to keep quiet and just follow
    along with what Obama says and wants to do or you will be fired and your
    military career ruined.

    Again, I was told this is nothing new since removing strong military leaders in
    advance of declaring martial law is a historically-proven element of a rising tyrant and dictator

    I am saying that his statements about the US Constitution don’t apply to the Constitution, but rather to what he thinks the Constitution says. I’ve read the first 5 pages twice this year (2013) to make sure I was getting things right. First time through I realized I was remembering it wrong.

    Just because you learned the Constitution in school doesn’t mean you remember the constitution. People remember the way they want to remember. The Constitution applies to me. I even know how it applies and why. Do you?

  • joseph

    you must be batshit fucking crazy. You think this dictator isn’t acting like a king? How about he passes laws that punish you for NOT buying a product, or how about he has decided that he can detain you without cause indefinitely? Wait how about telling Putin’s crony that he will have more “power” after an election. OR better yet “I will fundamentally change America.” people as dumb as you need to get a clue this P.O.S and those backing him are destroying the greatest country in history.

  • John Miles

    no one will be paying that much for that bs no matter what happens nonsense I say!

  • DeirdreTours

    You need to get a basic understanding of how laws are passed at the federal level. Obama did not pass anything- The US House of Representatives and the Senate passed the bill. Obama signed it into law thereafter. In our system, the majority of the house and the senate must vote for a bill for it to become law
    And, I hope you won’t respond with the lie being promoted by crazies that “congress didn’t get to read the bill before voting”– Some of us actually remember the process- the senate bill was passed 6 weeks prior to the house bill- Before the vote- The entire bill was put into the public record (as every single bill is). My spouse works for a major insurance company and the entire strategy dept at his company (including him) had read the entire bill multiple times (and had lobbyists working to get the bill to reflect industry interests).
    Is the ACA perfect? Oh, god no. But, it was the best that could get a majority vote of both houses.

  • Cliff E.

    Something tells me had they let the “Shutdown” continue Obama the Usurper would have taken the road to default and chaos if the GOP didn’t Cave…. i say they should have held their ground, the U.S. Constitutionally can not default, it has to pay debts first then money to support armies, no where does it say we have to give money and subsidies to the poor, farmers, industry or other nations. Before 1913 and the Income tax we had armies, we had roads and bridges so tell me why we need a federal income tax?

  • Tyler Stiles

    OMG you are a moron. He hasn’t done anything that Bush didn’t start first. When will you stupid fcks start realizing that you can’t just cover up the problem? You act like taking Obama out of office will do anything. When the real problem will just put another pawn in place. He is a pawn because he isn’t the one running the show he isn’t the king of anything. Go ahead continue to look at him as the problem while the globalists and bankers and lobbyists laugh at you. If you really want to do something good, for change, vote third party.

  • Tyler Stiles

    No we have no hope for unity because of attitudes like yours.

  • Citezen

    As the United states presently has an absurd state of being the best outcome would be to separate the states into their own nations. Some states won’t make it and will be torn to pieces by other states. Any state that relies too heavily on government funding will patchily automatically collapse. Frankily in my opinion this should’ve been done as soon as Obama was reelected. With no United States the military will either force the general public to submit to the government or split back into the homes of their families. Basic trading between the poorer states with the richer states will commence. theres even a great chance that other countries that the former government owed money to will simply take what their pound of flesh from whats left over.
