And "win" the future!  Since when is the future something we "win"?  All a game?  Our futures?  Ridiculous.

Thought the same thing.  What stupid phrasemaking.

Then again, all that really matters in the world is fucking the other guy over in the market, so perhaps is beautifully rational.

Grunt, actually what we saw in the state of the Break-up speech was the perfect practise of double-speak.

So clear now why Omama was the chosen spokesperson for this phase of the takedown.

AS Teleprompter in chief with a perfect voice/demeanor/gravitas, on command, he can pied piper many "followers" into anything, anyplace. 

This is nearing the pinnacle of 1984 for real and the gates look to me like they are going to clang shut anyday now. 

After this, it's going to be One Flew Over the Cuckoo's nest all the way. Imagine beign a sane person in an insane asylum!

The gentleman signing the affidavit may want to disappear for awhile. Hang low so to speak. Go incognito......

blindfaith's picture can write and or find anything you want to back up this claim or defeat it.  Stop wasting you time on this tired notion.  IF IT WERE TRUE...what the heck is anyone going to do about it, call INS?

The 'fact' is, he is the best neo republican the democrats ever put in office.  As for the old republicans and democrats they are on their way to join Volcker to feed pigeons in the park.  They have given up, don't care, or can get any attention.

A national crises, a security crises in employment, foreclosures, infrastructure, intelligent health care, law and order, standard of living, American Morales, veterans treated like trash, any of these that should have gotten the SAME national emergency attention that Iraq and Afghanistan receives.  Just look at the trillions spent/lives lost on these farces, and he didn't even mention them in his worthless  and meaningless "State of the Union".

WHO gives a fat f*#& about the American people...NO ONE!  Not even Americans, it seems.

If you don't have an official, original birth certificate proving you are a natural born citizen, you will not be able to be on the ballot for President of the US here in AZ in 2012.  The law is making it's way through AZ senate right now, should be law very soon.  Other states to follow soon.

I don't think it will matter, Obama is a "one and done" like Carter.

...we need...THE WAR ON TIME!!!

Evidently his speechwriters didn't get the memo:

"On a long enough time line the survival rate for everyone drops to zero."

But that won't stop DC from chryogenically freezing previously vibrant and necessary components of our society into a state of utter uselessness. I say pull the plug on the lifeless cadavers and put them in the ground where they belong.

Apparently the future has been something you "win" at least since 2005 when Newt Ginrich wrote a book on the subject with that exact title:

Who's vetting the president's bullshit these days?

Nice going Barry.

Why stop there.. lets keep it going witih the photoshop removal of the BATF, DHLS, and CIA. Photoshop removal of the Internal Revenue Act as well, and photoshop in the un-equivocal and mandatory compliance to the constitution by the many states that, amongst the absolute compliance of the many states to the rights of the people, that the 2nd amendment be understood that all small arms in equivalence to the military, are allowable, and able to be purchased by citizens of the many states with no infringement including the ability to travel to, from and through any state in the union without repercussions. What one group of people thinks is not needed is not covered under the 2nd. It doesn't care what you think. That the 1st amendment includes all speech; even hate speech is covered under this. Just because we don't like it, doesn't mean it can't be said.

i love that! you should write a letter to the NYFRB. I am sure they will be thankful for the advice, as they donr seem to have much experience in modern technology, considering their POMO desk ;)

as i just learned recently:
"As far as I know, there's no absolute definition for the size of any C/C++ type." So theres still way to go, even with strg+a :)

Without Oprah and Facebook, USA Worth 40 Dollars



by Andy Borowitz | January 26, 2011 - 9:01am

MINNEAPOLIS (The Borowitz Report) - A new economic study reveals that once Oprah and Facebook are subtracted, the United States of America is worth 40 dollars.

Professor Davis Logsdon, who conducted the study for the University of Minnesota Economics Institute, called the findings surprising: "Quite frankly, the number came in several trillions lower than we had expected."

And he added, in a note of caution, "That forty dollar figure is deceptive because we owe 42 dollars of it to China."

As a sign of Oprah's continuing economic power, yesterday more than 20 million Americans stepped forward to claim that they were her half-sisters.

An angry mob of Oprah's purported half-sisters marched on the talk show host's studio yesterday, demanding new cars and trips to Australia.

In an acknowledgment of the country's ballooning budget deficit, President Obama announced that tonight would be the first ever Tostitos™ State of the Union Address.
