    ““If you look at last year’s State of the Union address, the president made some specific promises. Raise the minimum wage, immigration reform, background checks for gun purchases — none of that happened,” Karl said. “Isn’t this year only going to be harder?”
    “…none of that happened.” “

    Simple answer; George W. Bush said it best,

    “This would a whole lot easier if this were a dictatorship….”

    You see, we have checks and balances, namely congress, namely the house controlled by republicans which have gone against everything the president has been for even if they once supported those same things. Therefore nothing is being done until those republicans get voted out. Lets not forget the senate that has had more filibusters against Obama by republicans then any other president in history.

    In the 2012 election dems in the house received about a million more votes then did republicans but because of redistricting, the republicans remained in power.

    That might be close to what a police chief might get but certainly not a typical cop.

  • December 27, 2013 at 3:49pm

    The median income for a cop in the US is about $50,000.

    Having an armed, untrained, un-vetted, uninsured civilian doing police work in order to save a dime and contribute nothing to the local economy? Wreckless.

    Feed a (homeless) man for a day and tomorrow he’ll be hungry again. Give a man a job making a living wage and you have a customer for life.

    “I would rewrite the Constitution, and I would have a provision in there that’s very explicit that the government has no role to play in economics.”

    Considering the “honor system” never worked in the capitalist system, hence the need for regulations and laws, we, the US would once again revert back to:

    Human slavery

    Child labor, where children as young as 6 would be allowed to work

    Polluting our planet, our drinking water and crops that we ourselves consume directly as well as the animals we consume

    Hunting animal and sea species to the point of extinction

    Allowing people to work in hazardous environments with no regard to their or families safeties

    Then we would refer to the US as a Christian nation under this new rule that would be little more the rebirth of the Roman empire. Except this time, there will be no Christians in the coliseum, just everybody else.

    “Rubio said the country’s economic well being is tied to its moral wellbeing.Rubio said the country’s economic well being is tied to its moral wellbeing.”

    A moral code indeed. A republican moral code that that hides behind the Christian bible all the while condemning, mocking and ridiculing the poor, the infirmed and the elderly as thieves and the scrooge of modern society. All the while praising and glorifying the rich who believe their given right is to take form those that have the least and to do so in Christ’s name.

    “As the President attempts to ally w/ Al-Qaeda in Syria’s civil war, we must always remember who attacked us on our soil 12 years ago.”

    This is the phony Christian republicans’ attempt at framing the story of the tragedy in Syria to distract the some 1400 civilian deaths caused by nerve agas while one third of those killed were children.

    Let one of those children have been a Christian and the phony godless Christian right would have been coloring the airwaves that Obama hates Christians because he hadn’t attacked already.

    This coming from the republican crowed including Beck that wanted to stay in Iraq forever despite of the financial and human cost as well as that little fact that no WMDs were ever found, almost forever in Afghanistan and ran out of time otherwise, the republicans would have also attached/invaded Iran on the same phony premise they went into Iraq.

    No bunnies; only fools listening to the rich man as he uses their hatred against them to steal their country right from under them.

    more sequester truth theblaze keeps from you:

    “Here’s what passes for good news in the era of sequestration: “Only” 57,000 children are being kicked out of Head Start, instead of the 70,000 that had been projected. Along with those 57,000 children losing their preschool, 18,000 Head Start workers are being laid off or having their pay cut.”

    “An ABC News/Washington Post poll in May found that 37 percent of Americans say they’ve been negatively affected, up from 25 percent in March. And 18 percent say they’ve felt a “major impact.””

  • August 20, 2013 at 1:38pm

    Bunnies; this is what theblaze wants you to believe is being affected by the sequestration cuts. This only proves how dumb and out of touch its readers are. The republicans raised the debt ceiling 7 times under Bush and almost as many as Regan, but when it comes to Obama who inherited all the mess, they want to take the country over the cliff.

    This is the sequester:

    “Budget cuts known as sequestration are reducing funding for programs ranging from Head Start and Meals on Wheels to the Department of Defense”

    “WASHINGTON, May 10, 2013 – During a Senate hearing yesterday on President Barack Obama’s $9.5 billion military construction budget request for fiscal year 2014, Defense Department Comptroller Robert F. Hale said the severe and abrupt budget cuts imposed by sequestration are devastating the U.S. armed forces.”

    • “Services cut or eliminated for millions of students.
    • Funding for children living in poverty, special education, and Head Start slashed by billions.
    • Ballooning class sizes.
    • Elimination of after-school programs.
    • Decimation of programs for our most vulnerable—homeless students, English language learners, and high-poverty, struggling schools.
    • Slashing of financial aid for college students.
    • Loss of tens of thousands of education jobs—at early childhood, elementary, secondary, and postsecondary levels.”

    Tennessee is one of the top 6 states in poverty. They have 18.3% of their population below the poverty rate. About 1% or less difference separates the top 5 ( MS, KY, WV, AL) out of 6 states in poverty levels. Yet it is always these poor states and poor souls that allow themselves to be fooled by the rich white men spewing fear of the black, Asian, Hispanic and even women.

    The following are comments from the link:

    “Whoo boy. This from a paper that runs on electricity from the TVA, and where the Smart Grid investment is already paying off, to the tune of $1.4M in one storm: https://www.greentechmedia.com/articles/read/distribution-automation-saving-epb-millions

    Couple that with the fact that the budget deficit is coming down rapidly: http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2013/jul/25/barack-obama/obama-says-deficit-falling-fastest-rate-60-years/

    And this is demonstrated as one unhinged rant.”

    “New Push: Birthers Declare President Ineligible — Claim Foreign Origins”

    Oh, the story is about the hand pick successor to dictator Chavez to lead Venezuela, not President Obama. Typical theblaze emphasis on misinformation, spin on words and un-facts (lies).

    “Edwin Park of the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities predicts that this “probably should have little effect on coverage in 2014,” since the biggest increases are “primarily due to increased participation from the individual mandate, not from the employer responsibility requirement getting employers to offer or continue to offer.” “That’s because the employer mandate applies to larger employers who are already offering and likely would continue to offer with or without the penalty.” ”

    “From the Small Business Majority: “For larger businesses with more than 50 employees, 96 percent already offer insurance and we believe will continue to for business reasons. Only the 4 percent of larger employers that do not offer health insurance will be impacted by the delay in the penalty.” ”

    Where was the news media back when all this was being created and signed into law by Bush?

    Don’t ask the republicans as they were too busy saying if you have nothing to hide then don’t worry about it.

    Why isn’t the news media worrying about the fact that top intelligence has just been released compromising US security?

    How long did this guy know about all this info before he decided to release it?

    Why did the source wait until now to release it?

    If an incident happens and many lives are lost because of this leak, will the news media have blood on their hands?

    The source first left US territory before he released the classified info. This tells you he new what he did was illegal to the hill. This guy is not a whistleblower as the last time I checked, the US did not break any of its own laws.

    “One of the most shocking reveals in the lead-up to today’s hearing was that a team of Special Forces in Tripoli were told not to deploy to Benghazi during the attack. That decision has led to an uproar on the right, including claims of dereliction of duty towards Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey for not taking actions that could have saved lives.

    During questioning, Hicks confirmed that the team was ready to be deployed — not to join the fighting at the CIA annex — but “to secure the airport for the withdrawal of our personnel from Benghazi after the mortar attack.” Hicks also confirmed that it was the second such team to be readied for deployment, with the first having proceeded to Benghazi earlier. Despite the second team not deploying, the staff was all evacuated first to Tripoli, then to Germany, within 18 hours of the attack taking place.”

    Once again in the Boston marathon tragedy, the NY POST and the blaze have paranoid egg on their face.

    The NY Post was the only news organization to report 12 people had been killed when everyone else was reporting 2-3 people. The Post never admitted an error in reporting 12 dead. Later they claimed a Saudi student was a “suspect” when he never was and was later later cleared.

    Now they’re releasing a photo of two people claiming they found the bombers the FBI is looking for. When yesterday the FBI discredited the stories by several news outlets claiming an arrest had been made in the bombings. Those news organizations had to recant their stories.

    If by some change these are the people the FBI is looking for, the Post just warned the suspects. They may be charged with interfering with an FBI investigation if they get away. If these two are innocent, the Post will be open to lawsuits.

    “OBAMA’S ‘TAX FREEDOM DAY’ WAS MARCH 5…THE AVERAGE AMERICAN’S ISN’T UNTIL APRIL 18″

    The blaze is going after Obama who last year made about $607k (funny how the blaze didn’t mention it) paying about 18% tax rate but the blaze supported a man, Romney who ran for president who made for 2011 almost $14 million dollars paying about 13.7% in taxes. Also, Romney only released one year of tax returns. Can you imagine what the neo-republican crazies would said and called Obama if he had done the same.

    Gee, Glenn should talk to the history channel to ask if they’re for sell as Glenn’s past and current values seem to be in lock step with what the history channel is doing today. Ironic, this video produced by Christians is echoing Glenn’s and the extreme far rights talking points.

    @ROBERT999
    “@Soul Leister, the answer is to restrict voting. First, no one who is receiving socialistic benefits from the government should be allowed to vote. Second, all voters need to pass a civics/government test to be allowed to vote. These steps will prevent the ignorant and dependent from voting and insure a permanent Republican majority.”

    Behold the currently manifestation of the KKK. Only the strong, powerful and rich may vote in order to insure the survival of the white race at all cost. After the Godless, neo-Christians tea party republicans get that out of the way, they will next focus on bring back incandescent light bulbs.

    You you we are very near the end of something when those proclaiming to hold the teaching of Christ are constantly corrupting it by condemning the poor and meek and portraying them as lesser while praising the wealthy in Gods name.
