The bald racial hatred that underlies many of the posting for this paragraph as well as the attitudes of many in Congress blinds and deafens them to any reasoned remarks that enter the debate.

How about addressing the racism that you at times inadvertently inspire.  Or, are you afraid of loosing some of the crazies with their encapsulated delusions about Obama's origins.

Jim Rogers says:

  • US already lost AAA rating
  • Moodys don't know jack squat
  • politicians just getting free face time on camera for next election
  • balancing the budget hasn't happened and won't happen
  • default will be a few days if at all

1) Ding. We've already lost the AAA, and did so three months ago when we had to resort to the accounting tricks. So when does a major call them on it?

2) Ding. See question to end #1.

3) Buzz. What people do not understand is that, if he tries to withhold the SS checks for any considerable length of time (and let's not even get INTO food stamps!), he can forget about an election of any kind.

4) Ding!!! You cannot balance the budget anymore without an immediate societal-dislocating balancing of the size of the population to match it.

5) See #3. Especially if that is Obozo's belief, he has to pay those checks on 8/3, or it won't matter how long the "default" lasts, because that will turn a "soft default" into a very "hard default" in short order!

#2-Most of the people on SS (unless it is SSDI) would never vote for a black, "socialist" President anyway. If he refuses to pay the people who did not earn their social security dollars, he will lose the next election. If he refuses to pay SS to the people who put into it for most of their lives, he won't lose many votes at all.

 

Let's stop pretending the elderly are going to vote for Obama. It's the leeches who work a few years and go out on permanent disability he can't screw.

I subscribe to the guy from australia and his FFT economic newsletter at http://www.forecastfortomorrow.com that guy has called many big events before they have happend, including the stock market crash in 2008 and the current financial collapse of the US. (currently happening) but he is saying to watch what happens at the end of the year. hmmm

He is not from Kenya, was not born there and did not live there. What the OP said is akin to saying "send him back to Africa" and hints at the racism-based belief that Obama is not a legitimate US citizen.

Funny though. Your insistence on calling him Soetero not only shows unnecessary disrespect to a man who undeniably legitimately earned the presidency (can't be said for either of Bush's terms), it's part of a larger trend among some on the right that appears to be a substitute for nigger. It's an obvious code word.

So, in your estimation, which half of Obamatron are us'ens prejudiced against?

Sorry, but "promising" all of the following and then promptly doing nothing earns mega-points for being hypocritical:

1. Bringing (ALL!) the troops home from Afghanistan -- FAIL!

2. Bringing (ALL!) the troops home from Iraq -- FAIL!

3. Closing GITMO -- FAIL!

4. Trying all the "detainees" in civilian courts -- FAIL!

5. NOT raising taxes -- FAIL!

6. Making creating jobs a #1 priority -- FAIL!

7. etc.

Go take your paper-thin skin to another site, if you truly need like-minded people to agree with you that the World is NOT fair (it's NOT, by the way!)

The only thing that kills bigotry is cold, quiet, COMPETENCE -- I see no such thing in

Obamatron.  (Haven't seen any such thing in the US Govt for quite some time, actually!)

Its obvious that he was not raised in a village in Kenya, what makes the JOKE funny is that his ideology and actions are foreign.  Now stop acting like a righteous wally, if you want to take everything seriously go nuts, but myself have come to the conclusion that I can't do too much about it so I'd might as well have a few laughs along the way (see today's caption contest).  Enjoy the show and stop taking yourself so seriously.

Hivemind does not imply the people are insects. That's your own inference. It is a reference to groupthink. It's a noun.

Dude you are fucking clueless about the joke. It was a two-fer pun. Pun number one, 'a village is missing it's idiot'. Pun number two, Barry was born in Kenya, so hence, KENYA NEEDS IT'S IDIOT BACK, you fucking moron. It's a birther pun combined with topical commentary. Birther puns are funny because some days you get the feeling someone wants to give our country's sovereignty to the U.N. Barry plays up his blackness after he gets into politics, it gets him votes, it's not real, it means -nothing- to people on ZH.

Not sure you are firing on all cylinders Derp.  Obama is a failing politician, whose own agenda has left the country in a much bigger mess than was necessary.  In terms of racism, one of the key things I like about Obama's election is breaking the race barrier - because it says a lot about social progress in the US over the past 60 years.  It does not mean, however, that he is right; and political satire and opposition do not constitute racism.   

You look like you are looking for a boogie-man under every comment.  What's up with that?

Nice defense, but the reality is Barry "bought the votes" to get elected. It was called promising handouts. Bush was legit.  The Founding Fathers had a point that only property owners could vote, and if we had followed that rule, Barry would poll lower than whale snot. Bush would still have been elected.

Now that the money supply is being cut, It's obvious that Barry can't lead, and is not qualified to hold office. He has no plan. NONE. So all the shots he takes are fair game.

My Jamaican friend was making fun of the way of white people treat their pets (better than their children) to my face and I said to him "if you think us honkeys pamper and spoil our pets you should see Asians, they always seem to be fattening up their dogs and cats".  Is that OK cause a black man started it?

Yeah I heard a lot of white people just thought he had a really good tan and were suprised to learn after the election he had a little African ancestry.  (Or as a true racist might put it : "there's a nigger in the woodpile someplace")  But not a threatening Jesse Jackson type-so calm and reasonable.  They didn't realize he was a European Socialist whore to the international bankers and the amount of melanin in his skin was quite irrelevent.  Oh well, live and learn.

I have made no other argument than to point out the OP's racist remark. How then am I a pussy who won't debate? I'm debating the point I made.

Would you contiually call a married woman by her maiden name despite it being quite clear which name she now uses?

The use of Soetoro and Hussein can only be construed as a racist code word. It serves no purpose in debate. It has no material impact on anything. It's only logical use is to say nigger without sayng nigger.

Do you call married women by their maiden names when they use ther husband's name?

No, because it's disrespectful to do so. Likewise, to use Obama's middle name for unofficial purposes when he chooses not to is disrespectful. The only reason to do so is to point out that he has a Muslim middle name. It's a nod and wink to the idiotic, racist belief that he's a secret Kenyan Muslim Manchurian candidate. It's a code for "I don't like this nigger but I can't say nigger so I'll point out his Muslim middle name as if it's evidence of something sinister."

Soetoro no longer chooses to be identified as black; he's now Irish (or didn't you get the memo).  Anyway, he ain't black, he's high yellah and there's a difference (as any Black Man will tell you).

You should be cautious not to lurk here too much.  You may begin to understand sarcasm and "black" humor.  If you permit yourself to laugh in the face of absurdity, your programming may begin to crack ( ruh roh).  BTW, Chris Matthews called, he needs you to scratch his tingly leg.

He did not "legitimately earn the presidency."

His father was not a US citizen when he was born, making him ineligible to be president. Many countries have similar citizenship requirements to lead their countries as a way of raising the bar of allegiance. It is obvious Obama's allegiance is with the international bankers. Proof of constitutional ineligibility:

Vattel's Law of Nations, used when writing the constitution, states both parents must be citizens at the time of the child's birth for the child to be natural born.

Benjamin Franklin's letter to Charles W.F. Dumas, December 1775 references Law of Nations:

I am much obliged by the kind present you have made us of your edition of Vattel. It came to us in good season, when the circumstances of a rising state make it necessary frequently to consult the Law of Nations. Accordingly, that copy which I kept (after depositing one in our own public library here, and send the other to the College of Massachusetts Bay, as you directed) has been continually in the hands of the members of our congress, now sitting, who are much pleased with your notes and preface, and have entertained a high and just esteem for their author

This is letter 459 in this link:

They both have to accept blame for the problem because both parties spent way too much and promised too much. But why give them more of our money to blow because that will only allow it to continue. You still hear Obama using the 'invest' word...over and over...and we know what that means. In around 2000 the US Govt spent approximately what it is taking in right now in revenues. So, were you all in really bad shape then? So, cut the spending to the levels we had in 2000. Sorry, but we need to live within our means.
