Obama Job Approval Nears All-Time Lows

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Despite the apparent preponderance of polls proclaiming the Republicans as the party at fault (with their ratings at record lows); it appears there are no winners in this game of global macro economic war. President Obama's job approval rating has plunged to two-year lows, near all-time lows.

Well, the NASG & RUT are at all-time highs, so we know that the fat cats approve of everything Obuma is doing.

For all the talk about all the shit that is wrong with this economy, the markets keep going up.

There will be no real change without the collapse of the empire.  its only a matter of when.  And the real question is will we have a cleansing forest fire with a bright future or mad max?  Either way, it's gonna be real fucking ugly when the SHTF.

His approval ratings are entirely based on the success of the ponzi scheme to project itself, as anything other then what it is! The rating falls when people get concerned in the free shit army (both corporations and indivduals on welfare) and rises when he passes another CR that continues this BS charade!

Nothing more, nothing less!

I love you as long as you keep giving me my fix for free, and sending the bill to someone else, I fucking hate you and will kill you, if you stop! That's American Politics today, in a sentence!

There is not much joy in this.  I told my son when he voted for him the first time around that President Obama would probably wind up being the most reviled president in American history.  I suggested there were two reasons for this:  First he had signed up to be captain of a ship that had already hit an iceberg.  And second, because his progressive mindset, he was in no way equipped to be able to perform the triage that was necessary in a world of declining resources.  The real truth is nobody can save us short of an actual honest to God deity.  We need real magic.  Smoke and mirrors won’t cut it this time around.

As a citizen of Indonesia, and according to Indonesian law a citizen of no other country, he should be deported back to Indonesia.

When he came to the U.S. as a FOREIGN STUDENT on a Fulbright Scholarship, what was his country of origin? An Indonesian student needs a student visa. He has overstayed it. He is eligible for IMMEDIATE DEPORTATION.

Mike Adams on ObamaCare Computer Issues
Oct 11, 2013
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABOykoQQ2l0&t=7m6s

"I happen to have a long IT development history... My casual assessment of the code, indicates this system, at this point, it would be faster to scrap it and start over than to fix the current system..."

"The only reason that social security numbers and emails and other private financial data has not yet been stolen in huge numbers through healthcare.gov is because healthcare.gov is so broken that even the hackers can't get through it yet..."

"The philosophy of Obama is to wave a magic wand and fake like something is solved and then talk your way out of it. Obama is a salesman..."

"Computer code cannot be hypnotized by Obama. So let's get that straight. He can talk to the systems all he wants, they're not going to buy the dream. The computer code follows instructions, and instructions are a nightmare..."

"By the time January rolls around the media will have to admit something, unless they try to pull off the biggest mass hypnosis campaign in the history of the country, and try to tell everybody, you know, 'This is working!'. Maybe they'll say, 'Millions of people have signed up', and they'll try to make each individual person think they're the only one who can't get in..."

Why they chose such a complicated implementation is a mystery.  Anyone who has an inkling of understanding of computer systems would have known this was going to be a bust - particularly when attempted by government cogs, where the "best and brightest" are marginalized and the "protected classes," "affirmed," and brown-nosers are glorified.

Why didn't they just mandate insurers issue 1099s at the end of the year to those who bought insurance directly from them - enumerating the premiums paid.  Federal tax returns could have had a line for the credit and the booklet a worksheet for the calculation.  End of story.   (Maybe the politicians didn't want everyone to feel the pain of the full premiums - for fear they would balk at the absurd amounts.)

Not that I'm in favor of Obamacare (aka: the unaffordable insurance act) - but at least we wouldn't be wasting tons of money on a beastly system.

I believe the biggest IT mistake they made is not seperating all of the "shoppers" from the "buyers".

DEAD DOOR IT RULE #1:  If 90% of the traffic is shoppers, don't make SHOPPERS sign up for an account until they are to BUY.

This is why the "the traffic" is blasting out the flanges on the servers.  

Having broken DEAD DOOR IT RULE #1, they are about to break DEAD DOOR RULE IT RULE #2. 

DEAD DOOR IT RULE #2:  If your design is wrong, re-design the system.  Don't paste it togeather with bale wire and scotch tape.

Since Obama is a resonable person I'm sure he will re-design the system BEFORE it goes live.  /sarc

Under the Constitution, all spending bills MUST originate in the Congressional House (considered the People's assembly).

Clearly, the House gets to choose what is funded.

Clearly, the House has voted funding for government, though not all that Obama wants.

Clearly, Obama and his Senate lackeys have  rejected all funding  they would normally have approved for programs they would have normally approved.

Clearly, despite economic risks and hardships,
Obama et al have rejected all funding in an attempt to blackmail the House into approving the funding Obama wants.

Clearly, despite MSM presentations,
Obama is the obstructionist  who has taken the economy and government function  as hostages for a ransom demand on the House.

Several dozen U.S. Army active duty and reserve troops were told last week that the American Family Association, a well-respected Christian ministry, should be classified as a domestic hate group because the group advocates for traditional family values.

The briefing was held at Camp Shelby in Mississippi and listed the AFA alongside domestic hate groups like the Ku Klux Klan, Neo-Nazis, the Black Panthers and the Nation of Islam.

Corporate Fathers blame Welfare Mothers!! I grew up in So. Cal., where and when the MICC was born. This is NOT a classless society and the rich have always had a "war on the poor". Yeah, let's just let millions of children starve for lack of WIC; that will solve the problem nicely. I, for one, am tired of rich fuckers blaming "welfare", which doesn't and hasn't existed for twenty years, on the ills of this country. The lack of accountability and responsibility for the bloated pentagon budget is a large part of the problem, as is the Feral Reserve Bankstering System,  crony capitalism, nepotism and lack of checks and balances. Oh, and stagnant wages for the "undeserving worker class" musn't be left out of the overall picture.
