News & Politics News & Politics

I am very, very disgusted with America right now. How can so many people be so blinded for so long. How is it possible that you can't see how this man is making our once great country weaker and weaker everyday?. How can you not see that he is siding with our enemies and pushing our dearest friends away? How can you not see that he wants to make the rich and middle class poor, all the while keeping the poor people poor?How can you look at your children and think you are giving them a brighter future? How can you feel confident in our Constitution: your freedom of speech, your freedom of religion,the fact that the government is suppose to work for us and not against us?...Every person out there who voted for Obama....you are who I blame for our damnation...not Obama, not the Congress...YOU! I blame your utter insanity for the imminent fall of this mighty country.

You make me sick.

Excellent...I'm not bitter, I'm disappointed.  I didn't realize how stupid Americans could be.  I still believe that Obama offers alot of "free stuff" and that's why he was elected.




Watch something outside of fox. What freaking stuff!!! I kept hearing about this stuff, but everyone I know get up and work, pays their mortgages, car notes, etc.....not with stuff but with cash!!! What stuff are you talking about? Less than 13 percent of the people are on public assistance, maybe lower. Not only is your statement bigoted, it's a straight out lie.

Check it out...20-30% are receiving some sort of public assistance and that doesn't include social assistance or medicare.  Everybody I now pays there bills as well, but that doesn't mean EVERYONE does!  Bigoted?  What makes me a bigot?  And it's not a lie at all...check your figures.  And I don't watch fox.

The more one has eaten the propaganda Cheerios the more they have to call other people blind when they don't get their way.



And then cry about profanity. Lol


Quoting SeakingPeace:

bad Nice language.

The lower a person's IQ, the more they need to resort to profanity.




Quoting Momniscient:

How is it that so many Republicans can't accept that the will of the American people is just that...

Lol. Oh yeah all you fuckers are blind cause you didn't vote for Romney. Jeez. Get over it. Even I didn't scream and cry 'blind' when Bush got reelected.

Wow, you are an unfriendly person! The links I provided you showed that the term "czar" had been used before. Sorry I didn't STATE that before, but I highlighted in red the paragraph which shows the Bush administration popularized the term.

The paragraph in purple shows where rabble-rouser Glenn Beck , Hannity, etc., all of a sudden started taking exception with use of the word as if President Obama was using "commie" or "socialist" terms.

I regret that I thought you were mature enough to acknowledge my demonstrating my point.

I don't understand why you have so much animosity and are just plain mean, but your screen name DOES suit you:

Mud-sucking bottom feeder.

 From Factcheck.org:

There’s been a certain fascination with calling Obama’s advisers and appointees "czars." Fox News host Glenn Beck has identified 32 Obama czars on his Web site, whom he has characterized as a collective "iceberg" threatening to capsize the Constitution. Beck and other television hosts aren’t the only ones crying czar, either. Six Republican senators recently sent a letter to the White House saying that the creation of czar posts "circumvents the constitutionally established process of ‘advise and consent.’ " Republican Sen. Bob Bennett of Utah issued a press release saying that czars "undermine the constitution." And Texas Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison wrote an opinion column in the Washington Post complaining about the czar menace, including the factually inaccurate claim that only "a few of them have formal titles."

The habit of using "czar" to refer to an administration official dates back at least to President Franklin D. Roosevelt, but the real heyday of the czar came during President George W. Bush’s administration. The appellation was so popular that several news organizations reported on the rise of the czar during the Bush years, including NPR, which ran a piece called "What’s With This Czar Talk?" and Politico, which published an article on the evolution of the term. The latter, written during the 2008 presidential campaign, points out that czars are "really nothing new. They’ve long been employed in one form or another to tackle some of the nation’s highest-profile problems." Politico quotes author and political appointments expert James Bovard saying that the subtext of "czar" has changed from insult to praise: "It’s a real landmark sign in political culture to see this change from an odious term to one of salvation.”

Now it’s turned odious again, with Republican senators calling czars unconstitutional and cable hosts like Beck and Sean Hannity characterizing them as shadowy under-the-table appointees used by Obama to dodge the usual approval processes. In fact, of the 32 czars Beck lists:

  • Nine were confirmed by the Senate, including the director of national intelligence ("intelligence czar"), the chief performance officer ("government performance czar") and the deputy interior secretary ("California water czar").
  • Eight more were not appointed by the president – the special advisor to the EPA overseeing its Great Lakes restoration plan ("Great Lakes czar") is EPA-appointed, for instance, and the assistant secretary for international affairs and special representative for border affairs ("border czar") is appointed by the secretary of homeland security.
  • Fifteen of the "czarships" Beck lists, including seven that are in neither of the above categories, were created by previous administrations. (In some cases, as with the "economic czar," the actual title – in this case, chairman of the president’s economic recovery advisory board – is new, but there has been an official overseeing the area in past administrations. In others, as with the special envoy to Sudan, the position is old but the "czar" appellation is new.)
  • In all, of the 32 positions in Beck’s list, only eight are Obama-appointed, unconfirmed, brand new czars.

These new "czars" include the special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan; the director of recovery for auto communities and workers; the senior advisor for the president’s Automotive Task Force; the special adviser for green jobs, enterprise, and innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality; the federal chief information officer; the chair of the Recovery Act Transparency and Accountability Board; the White House director of urban affairs; and the White House coordinator for weapons of mass destruction, security and arms control. Or, as Glenn Beck would have it, the Afghanistan czar, the auto recovery czar, the car czar, the embattled green jobs czar, the information czar, the stimulus accountability czar, the urban affairs czar and the WMD policy czar.

Some of these new positions would have been meaningless in a previous administration. Previous presidents didn’t need an Automotive Task Force or a Recovery Act Transparency and Accountability Board. These positions are similar to George W. Bush’s "World Trade Center health czar" and "Gulf Coast reconstruction czar" in that they are new advisory positions created to deal with temporary challenges facing the administration. Others do represent new long-term concerns (urban affairs, climate change), but the act of appointing advisers to manage new areas of interest is hardly unique to the Obama administration. The Bush administration, for instance, created the "faith-based czar" and the "cybersecurity czar."

Another thing: Beck counts among his 32 "czars" three who have not been called "czars" by reporters at all, except in stories claiming that the Obama administration has lots of "czars." We’ve compiled a FactCheck.org list that discounts these positions, which seem to be "czars" only in the context of media czar-hysteria. (Our list also adds three czars Beck’s research didn’t find – a "diversity czar," a "manufacturing czar" and an "Iran czar.")

As for Obama having an unprecedented number of czars, the Bush administration had even more appointed or nominated positions whose holders were called "czars" by the media. The DNC has released a Web video claiming that there were 47, but it’s counting multiple holders of the same position. We checked the DNC’s list against Nexis and other news records, and found a total of 35 Bush administration positions that were referred to as "czars" in the news media. (Our list of confirmed "czars," with news media sources cited, is here.) Again, many of these advisory positions were not new – what was new was the "czar" shorthand. Like the Obama czars, the Bush czars held entirely prosaic administrative positions: special envoys, advisers, office heads, directors, secretaries. The preponderance of czars earned both ridicule and concern in editorials and in media, but no objections from Congress.

Quoting Carpy:

Thanks for acknowledging?  I did not acknowledge what you purported to be fact, because it was not.  He has used them to write policy against the will of the american people on issues such as internet control, cap and trade, union card check and many other regulations.  The most dangerous is Carol Browner.

Quoting joyfree:

Okay, thanks for acknowledging, but please tell me which "czars" are trying to usurp Congress?shake hand

Quoting Carpy:

I acknowledge what comes from historical fact. Woodrow Wilson was the first president to appoint czars.  FDR had several czars, but none were ever used to write policy and usurp congress in the way that Obama has done.

Quoting joyfree:

Why bother? You wouldn't acknowledge anything that doesn't come from Breitbart, Fox, or The Blaze... Your name fits you well...toddler tantrum

Quoting Carpy:

Get some real sources.

Quoting joyfree:

Stop with the sour grapes and personal attacks:sarcasm

I feel sick. I really do.  It's appalling that people are just that STOOPID.  We deserve what we get. I hope we go into such a depression, and all hell breaks loose. I really do.  Then I will shake my head and these STOOPID people and say "You deserve it."



America will reap what she has sown. Sadly those of us who did not vote for Obama will suffer with the blind leading the blind. How many more Communist leaders will Obama whisper to....if I'm re-elected I will be more flexible. What else is he doing behind closed doors!?


totally agree. We who did not vote for him do not deserve him.  I do not trust him either.  Look how many "czars" he's put in gov't. Isn't a czar something that's used in um...communist Russia??? Either the people are blind, or they actually believe communism/socialism is a good thing.


It was your hero George W. Bush who started appointing "czars". Look it up.slap


 

 


 


 

Now that's funny shit!  I've been thinking that for quite some time.  Carpy or Crappy either way, she's just nasty and narrow minded.  Thanks for the giggle!

Your ignorance is shown in your lack of vocabulary...those who result to vulgar language, lack the intellect for intelligent conversation. Actually, I love being in the minority. If that means that I don't blindly follow a man whom I know nothing about....I'll take being in the minority.

Quoting notonepercenter:

Ignorance may have no bounds, but fuck!  You are re-defining it with your dumb ass, closed-minded, opinions.   You religious freaks are shameless!  Your comments sound like something a suicide bomber would say.  You are as extreme as the ones you fear the most.  All the talk of you blaming Obama supporters is laughable, because it shows how uncomfortable you feel being the minority.  Sucks doesn't it!  Well, get the fuck over yourself.  What a martyr!  Just go crawl back under your rock for all of our sakes.  FYI - Xanax obviously isn't working - just go check into the hospital - on Obamacare of course!  Leave the weed for those of us who know how to enjoy it, and be thankful for it.  Ha!Ha!

Rest assured, my vocabulary and intellect are sufficiently adequate to debate you and your like-minded counterparts.  My use of vulgarity may offend your sensibilities, however, it does not in any way give indication to my intelligence.  So, save your holier than thou deflections for your captive audiences at your church socials.  Fare thee well my sister!
