The best worst president ever

It was written in July, and it's more true now.


"...The bottom line seems obvious: Much to the GOP’s bitter revulsion, it turns out a calm, intellectual black man really can run an entire country – certainly far better than an inarticulate Texas bumbler, and even in the face of what is easily the most obstructionist, hateful, acidic and often downright racist Congress in modern memory. Quite an achievement, really..."


Saw this on Facebook....

I could not be as thorough, but certainly agree.

Pretty disgusted in this republican ad running in NH.

The scene is a spelling bee, and the girl is asked to spell Shaheen (Jean Shaheen-re-election U. S. Senate).....well watch for yourself.


What's up with the Pentagon, and various generals, criticizing the President's position in Syria?

They are all talking about "boots on the ground," and how it will probably be necessary for the U.S. to go that route. That is a total contradiction on what the president emphatically stated about no ground troops. Last I heard the president was still the commander in chief. I hope to hell there are repercussions for that crap.
Then on tonight's news I see Leon Panetta saying, "I told you so" about Iraq. What a bunch of backstabbers in DC.

How Many Minimum Wage Hours Does It Take To Afford A Two-Bedroom Apartment In Your State?

I'm not sure if this was posted here yet, but it certainly tells us something about minimum wage.


Iran's deputy minister assassinated

Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 10
By Dalga Khatinoglu - Trend: Iranian deputy minister of industry, mines and commerce Safdar Rahmat-Abadi was assassinated on November 10, IRNA reported.

Has there been any mention if this is related to the failed negotiations?

Cuts in Hospital Subsidies Threaten Safety-Net Care

Source: New York Times

SAVANNAH, Ga. — The uninsured pour into Memorial Health hospital here: the waitress with cancer in her voice box who for two years assumed she just had a sore throat. The unemployed diabetic with a wound stretching the length of her shin. The construction worker who could no longer breathe on his own after weeks of untreated asthma attacks and had to be put on a respirator.

Many of these patients were expected to gain health coverage under the Affordable Care Act through a major expansion of Medicaid, the medical insurance program for the poor. But after the Supreme Court in 2012 gave states the right to opt out, Georgia, like about half the states, almost all of them Republican-led, refused to broaden the program.

Now, in a perverse twist, many of the poor people who rely on safety-net hospitals like Memorial will be doubly unlucky. A government subsidy, little known outside health policy circles but critical to the hospitals’ survival, is being sharply reduced under the new health law.

Here's hoping the hospitals administrators get on all the republican governors, who opted out of the major expansion of Medicaid, under the Affordable Care Act. If there is enough pressure, maybe they will 'opt back in' so the program can help all the people who need it.

Patriots Offense .....

...needs to get its act together quickly! They have a good test this weekend with the Saints coming to town.

Defense was looking okay this year.....losing Wilfork and Kelley, the tackles is going to hurt. 2 free agent rookies cannot fill the hole.

Our Democracy Is at Stake

Hell of a good article about what is at stake for our country with this shutdown.

"President Obama is not defending health care. He’s defending the health of our democracy. Every American who cherishes that should stand with him."


Why put down those who think it's a new revelation?

Old, new, one instance, many instances......what the hell is the difference. The results will be the same eventually.....a nuclear disaster that should never happen.
Sometimes competitive intelligence can be blinding.
