"The pipeline will go through if I have to build it myself"
"Vote for Obama and Iraq will get the for me and they will not"

Holy shit, is there any stopping the inane, banal comments that ooze out of this man's pie hole? Anyone would be hard pressed to consume so many syllables and still manage to say absolutely nothing. Nothing....just an endless barrage of worthless rhetoric in a failed attempt to prey on the human condition known as stupidity. 
Just how stupid do you think we are, Governor?  How about you cease with the meaningless platitudes and level with us....or are you even capable? Has it been so long ago that you were actually long ago...years before you became this reprogrammed presidential running machine that you are incapable of delivering an original thought? Has it been so long that you don't even know what your personal viewpoints are without someone telling you what to think?

Once again a republican claim is completely and totally shot down in flames...of course us liberals tend to argue with facts as opposed to the FOX dwellers. That's right............ an exhaustive new study by media watchdog Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting shows that the Sunday morning talk shows have been dominated over the last eight months by white, Republican men. AND that includes the (allegedly) completely biased MSNBC!

According to a study by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities:
“In 2009 the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program was responsible for lifting the income of 3.6 million Americans over the poverty line, providing an average of less than $300 in monthly food stamps to families in need. In 2010 this program lifted 3.9 million Americans above poverty, including 1.7 million children.“

And the Ryan budget plan will reduce the Food Stamp program by 133 BILLION over ten years. 13.35 billion in reductions each year over ten years....and he won't budge on the tax breaks for the uber rich. What an asshole. What an unfeeling, uncaring, unsympathetic asshole. What kind of a man would risk children going hungry while he maintains the tax breaks for multi-millionaires who do not need the money? This "SNAP" program has never been more important, given the economic hardships our fellow Americans are going through....

"In fact, America’s dependence on the SNAP program has been all the more important because of the tight job market and slow economy. From the economic collapse of 2007 until the start of the recovery in 2011, food stamp rolls grew from 26.3 million to almost 45 million.
The millionaires in our nation’s capital may never have to make eye contact with the reality of our ongoing recession. The rest of us are not so lucky. Half of the rest of us are poor or low income. Fifty-seven percent of American children live in a poor or low-income family. Out of all SNAP food stamp funding, approximately 75% goes precisely to these poor or low-income families with kids."

Over two years of job growth....yes, it has been a slow, uphill battle. But then again, what did you expect? Did you expect the administration to come in and immediately stop the negative economic vortex of GOP slowdown / near-depressionary eight years of performance? Did you expect an immediate halt to two undeclared wars, a failed energy policy, near historic job loss and a surplus turned into a huge deficit? You did? Then you are either a fool...or you weren't paying attention. Please don't vote in November. Four more years of tax cuts for the rich...four more years of attempted world military domination....four more years of pushing the middle class down...four more years of Bush / Reagan policies might just end us.

While the nation watches, or more accurately.......reads about (the court sessions are not televised by order of the court) the Supreme Court case over "Obama Care," I think it's time to discuss where the President went terribly wrong, while trying to do something terribly right.

Obama certainly had his heart in the right place as he sought to insure 40 million Americans who cannot get health care today. Most of the uninsured cannot afford the exploding costs for insurance to be sure, and in a perfect world the nation could afford to pick up the tab, but we simply cannot afford another expensive social program on the books. Obama claims efficiencies would make this program budget neutral, but I seriously doubt this claim. Virtually nothing is budget neutral coming out of Washington.

So where did he go wrong? In my opinion, when he caved in negotiations on creating a sense of competition in the free market, he killed it. The idea was simple. Anyone who cannot secure health care would be eligible to purchase a low cost form of Medicaid. Anyone would be eligible, and this would force insurance companies to sharpen their pencils if they wanted a piece of this newly formed pie.

Secondly, his notion that everyone would be mandated to get health care was a huge mistake. HUGE. Because taking away freedoms from Americans is never popular, and at its core is unconstitutional. And in doing so, he hurt small business, at its core just plain stupid in any economy, let alone our present condition.

Instead of forcing citizens to get health care, he should have shifted the focus to mandating the insurance companies to offer low cost plans for low income families....or they could go to government supported insurance...not for a full blown PPO, but a modest health care plan with moderate co-pays offering basic coverage.

Could it be he was so desperate to achieve a bi-partisan effort on health care he threw the baby out with the bathwater? I would say yes. And considering the almost universal criticism of all or portions of the Affordable Care Act, he certainly failed to get a return on the investment. He gave up way to much and got nothing in return for his efforts.

And he is about to pay the price for it as the Supreme Court is about to at minimum, bitch slap the President in public, and at worse, give him a public taking to the political woodshed.

The decision will be 5-4 and John Roberts will jump hurdles in order to write the opinion. This is one of the decisions that will be studied for generations to come. Judicial versus Executive powers. Conservative decision versus progressive president. A good idea poorly executed in my opinion.

And that is the world........."The World According to Kimba." Thanks for reading.
