Black Friday Blues.

People ready to crash through the door way at a Wall- Mart
what is wrong with our society? 
Forget the kids starving in this long line of over night
shoppers. Mom and Dad have to get that new
I pod.
We have a growing trend in our society . On Black Friday and every holiday sale . Here I am going to get you to think twice before you go to that shopping mall . An old woman is knocked to the ground and trampled as a crowd races past; one person turns to help her and is swept away in the mob, only to be injured himself. Two other men begin to beat and kick each other; soon the violence escalates into what has been described as a “small riot” as the pain and suffering of the injured seems fade away into a surreal sea of bodies. Are people fleeing an attack? Is this a natural disaster? Are people starving and fighting for survival for themselves and their families? What crisis could possibly make human beings behave this way towards each other? Sadly, the answer is greed. This disgusting display did not happen in a third world country or a disaster zone. It happened in the affluent community of South Hill Washington where all people could think of was their own need for material things at the expense of the health and safety of others and even their own dignity.Sadly, this scenario played out over and over again all across this “great’ country of ours, as people left their homes and families in the cold, dark wee hours of the morning in order to beat others to holiday sales and deals, resorting to violence when they deemed it necessary. The Tacoma News Tribune decided to print an editorial about how stores should do a better job of stocking their shelves in order to prevent this from occurring .Are the stores taking advantage of people’s most base instincts? Yes. Do they contribute to the problem because all they care about is sucking people in to spend money on other things? Yes.The market system has people hooked into spending on things that they may not need . The stores KNOW HOW TO BAIT and SWITCH YOU. They make the "price" look like a markdown bargain , yet it's the "regular price" . There may be a sign posted that says " 30 to 50 %" off , but you are paying for it's actual costs . The Market system knows how to drag you into the store thinking that you'll save big , but on the other hand your wallet or purse will be a lot lighter.Although Black Friday represents a glaring example of what is wrong with our country, every time I think about how awful we are when it comes to crass consumerism I have to stop and realize that people buying crap all the time is what makes this economy go. It represents job growth, and GDP growth, and in the end, a better life for the middle class. The entire economy depends on people spending money on stuff they really don't need, but without that spending the economy, and people's lives suffer. It is an ugly double edged sword for sure, but I don't see a way out of it.What stood out to me as I watched the footage was the people shown turning back into the crowd with merchandise in hand, eager to push others out of their way in their hurry to get to the checkout line (or perhaps to snag other items for sale).To me, the behavior captured in these videos symbolizes the selfish, uncaring attitude so many people seem to have these days. There’s so much screaming and yelling in this video that I can’t make out any coherent dialogue. But the body language is clear: I’ve got mine, now get out of my way!  Whatever happened to humility? Goodwill towards others? Has consumerism so consumed us that we’ve forgotten the message of timeless works about the true meaning of the holiday season – like Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol?


Black Friday is no longer simply an exercise in selfishness, greed, and bad taste. It has become a human-rights issue. The spectacle of human beings transformed into baying hounds by the false promise of things is almost on a par with the grotesque social engineering of Stalin and Mao. Rather than the brutality of the Khmer Rouge, it seems that all it takes to enslave American minds is the promise of 50 percent off two lipsticks from Moulin Rouge.

I feel really sorry .

Our Secretary of the State gave a vary heated glance back toward the Israeli  Minister .

Sometimes I wonder who is really the persecuted minority . Is it the Israeli , or the Palestinians  ? This last onslaught  is no example of why there should  be a "peace plan" in the Middle -East . Our nation has remains  vary indifferent toward the Palestinians , and shamefully in a vary un-American way not recognizing these people's national status at the UN makes America less a broker of any peace between Israel and the Palestinian authority .  I know it's hard for my Jewish Friends to take  criticism .  I understand that there is a feeling towards Israel because the Christian world view of that piece of land being the "holy land" and so on.Take my word , my last blog post I relented that it was Israel that fired the fist shot  , making a preemptive strike on a Hamas leader . Remember amid the Arab Spring we never did hear up until now any rockets firing into Israeli territory . It seems to me that the Israeli media is trying to portray the Palestinian's as the bad guys who use "human shields" hiding rockets in Mosques so innocents could be killed by Israeli retaliation . Remember folks the Gaza Strip is nothing but a "ghetto" by human standards , and its so over crowded with people per square inch that there are no bomb shelters there unlike those in the well off Israeli territories . Right now the Israeli -Palestinian conflict is well over due for a resolution .


What is the point of those who argue that Israel is built on stolen land. In addition to it being untrue, even if it were true it is a wasted argument. It is there now, and will continue to be there. Nuclear powers do not get dislodged. Either Hamas accepts the Jewish state or have their people live in perpetual misery. It is their choice. They and other Arab peoples could enhance their lives if they choose peace. If not, they will remain backwater locations. When the oil revenue stops flowing they will go from backwater to irrelevant wastes. The choice is their's to make. Hate or progress. Which will it be?

" Cry Havoc ye dogs of War."

Israeli airstrike kills Hamas leader , blame Israel for this one. Now the whole
region is about to explode .
" Cry Havoc ye dogs of War." Shakespeare was well aware of the use of the meaning of havoc and he used 'cry havoc' in several of his plays. The 'cry havoc, and let slip the dogs of war' form of the phrase is from his Julius Caesar, 1601. For the State of Israel there is another "saying" out of the Bible . " Ye who is without sin cast the first stone ."   Israel just started a meaningless war of aggression . How can Israel be justified in killing the leader of Hamas , and now poised to send 30,000 troops into Palestinian  territory . Sure Hamas reacted with a barrage of missile fire hitting Tel Av-iv and Jerusalem . Sorry but Israel deserves what ever the outcome . Since it cast the first stone . It invited aggression.   I am sorry my dear readers . I am sick of all the violence in the Middle-East perpetrated by Muslims , and Israeli alike . Sick of the blood shed over a piece  of worthless ground . The killings , revenge all done in the name of God.

Here is Israel's sin .
The Israel Defense Forces didn’t just kill Hamas military leader Ahmed al-Jabari on Wednesday as he was driving his car down the street in Gaza. They killed him and then instantly posted the strike to YouTube. Then they tweeted a warning to all of Jabari’s comrades: “We recommend that no Hamas operatives, whether low level or senior leaders, show their faces above ground in the days ahead.”
Hamas missile strike  comes close to a Mosque .
If the United States of America bows and supports this unjustifiable act of war . Then too this country has fallen into despair , and out of touch with reality .  it's not funny how u mention a 1 year old and 13 year old that got killed it is no doubt a tragedy however these Arab people terrorize each other let's take a look at the Arab spring for example over thousands of Arabs have been murdered ruthlessly killing each other just in Syria alone Syrian army killing men killing woman and children and many more in Libya how about Iran , we don't even know how many men woman and children died this past year as a result of Arabs on Arab killing sprees. Are these the people you want Israel to make peace with ??? and how come the world is so slow to react to a country killing it own but when a country like Israel has a need to go on the offensive to protect it's own citizens and a couple children die as a result then all hell brakes loose??? the Arab world needs to be more responsible how they behave between themselves and needs to educate and set an example to their children how not to live a life a violence then the world can be a better place Funny how you don't mention that Israel has Gaza confined to what amounts to a prison. It really is similar to the cities and ghettos that Jewish people were confined to (if they were lucky) during world war II in German occupied land. The issue really isn't as one sided as you might think. If you lived in Gaza under the totalitarian rule of Israel, without the right to have even a government, what would you do? I can say for a fact that I would not be happy and I would rebel. Yes, I do understand that Israel is being attacked, but seriously can you really blame the people for revolting?  What can one say? This conflict, frozen in time, rises again. I'm reminded, I hope not as a way of minimizing the violence of the Hamas=-Israeli situation, of the conflict in the U.S. between Republicans and Democrats. If one studies the literature, it's possible to find almost identical descriptions of these disputes after the Civil War. It's uncanny. 150 years.  Its's shocking that Israeli soldiers can murder civilians, including children, in the Gaza Strip with impunity, as their media manipulators all the while spin the truth and place the blame on the victims. Isn’t that Israel’s entire story? Always pretending to love peace but warmongering more than any other country in the Middle East?


After Caesar's murder Anthony regrets the course he has taken and predicts that war is sure to follow.
Blood and destruction shall be so in use
And dreadful objects so familiar
That mothers shall but smile when they behold
Their infants quarter'd with the hands of war;
All pity choked with custom of fell deeds:
And Caesar's spirit, ranging for revenge,
With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
Shall in these confines with a monarch's voice
Cry 'Havoc,' and let slip the dogs of war;
That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
With carrion men, groaning for burial.

How "they" Helped Obama win again!

The Obama win fosters curious propaganda .
There has to be a drawing line  to this recent Newsweek cover . I am sure that the aim is to present President Obama as victorious politician , and to compare him with   Napoleon? The Obama dream team from the start had created propaganda as well as some 'racial' overtones as we see here . The Newsweek cover also has a above caption reading ' GOP : YOUR OLD , YOUR WHITE , YOUR HISTORY !' The Republicans today are in a similar position to the Democrats ca. 1970. The extremist fringe is triumphant and will be content to lose election after election as long as they stick to principles no one else holds to be valuable. They need their own Bill Clinton right about now. But they really aren't ready for such a figure. REMEMBER . Newsweek is also the same magazine that told boldly for Obama to HIT THE ROAD and publicly endorsed Mitt Romney for President. A divided America has given President Barack Obama a second term: an extraordinary result given economic fundamentals that should have doomed the incumbent, according to the usual rules of electoral gravity.Scotching fears of drawn-out legal wrangling over disputed ballots in dead-heat races, the result became clear soon after the polls closed on the west coast. After billions of dollars in campaign spending, many thousands of vicious attack ads and unprecedented interventions by deep-pocketed outside groups, the balance of power looked remarkably similar to how it did a day before. Mr Obama is on course to lose just two states that he had taken in 2008, Indiana and North Carolina. Republicans retained control of the House of Representatives and the Democrats kept hold of the Senate. Yes I BLAME the REPUBLICAN'S for Obama's re-election . FIRST from the vary start we have had the Anti- Obama right wing NEWS media  like FOX , and to name the TEA PARTY as examples that for the last four years pushed so much of their propaganda which fostered on LIES accusing Mr. Obama for being a Marxist . All this hype made Mr. Obama look like a martyr , it helped him win his obvious publicity , as well as his forthcoming notoriety as America's first African American President .   I voted for a Romney win . Here is why I did that . First I can't see Mr. Obama surviving a second term  , and getting this country back to any economic recovery . Our United States government for one is run by the Big Business Gangsters who have already sold out Congress on both Party Lines . Secondly if in the next four years Mr. Obama can't turn things around remember vividly how commentators spoke of the "extinction of the Democratic Party" after the huge Republican victories in 2004. Coincidentally, that was the year when Barack Obama entered the public consciousness. Politics, like economics, is cyclical. The Republicans will adjust. Likewise, the Democrats will preside over failures. Here also is why I am endorsing other political parties outside of the Democrats and Republicans .If Obama honors his word, assuming he is a Democrat in the true sense of the word, (for as far as the public are concerned he has won by a mere 1.9%) he will try to work with Romney. Rather than try to govern a divided nation, this would be logical, realistic and honorable. Was this a win is the question many ask? Wall Street reacted strongly to Tuesday’s election results with a broad selloff. As the deadline looms over the fiscal cliff, worries of possible debt downgrades remain in focus. After the election, small-businesses know the Affordable Care Act will stand, and tax increases for those making above $250,000 are likely. Now that the 2012 race for the White House is in the books, the spotlight on Wall Street is shifting from a major political question mark to a more monumental fiscal one. How Obama’s win could change America! Then, can we steer clear of the fiscal cliff by January? There seems to be more questions then answers. When Obama has inherited the seat it he kitty was empty then it is our years and we still are not sure if he can re-fill the run the next four years and get the coffers filled up as this was before the 2000?

ON THE NEWSWEEK COVER : While Napoleon Bonaparte did help create key civil and economic reforms, the ruler, through legal trickery, crowned himself France's emperor in 1804. He was also a warmonger, reinstated slavery in the country's colonies, often ignored treaties and laws to obtain his goals, and he sanctioned the institutional plundering of conquered regions, resulting in the deaths of millions. How exactly is this a great cover? Newsweek editors look like they're once again creating propaganda for the government. I'll never, ever join the Republican Party, but for a party that prides itself on being "inclusive" and "colorblind," the Democrats keep stirring up racism to create division. Isn't President Obama part-white? It's pure evil to teach someone to hate themselves for their skin color. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, " I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." Well, let's ignore that uniting promise; it doesn't help sell magazines.
Romney called his loss to Obama a disappointing result that he and his team had not expected, but he said he believed his team had run a superb campaign. He said he was trying to turn his thoughts to the future, "but, frankly, we're still so troubled by the past, it's hard to put together our plans for the future

They want the Fiscal Cliff.

There is no Doubting   in my mind that some one wants the so called "Fiscal Cliff"  to happen. It Could only  benefit the Democrats.

The first major test for John Boehner and the GOP caucus in the upcoming lame duck session of Congress will be confronting a newly elected and freshly emboldened Barack Hussein Obama over a series of issues that have been named by the left and its stenographers in the media as the “Fiscal Cliff.” 
Powerful imagery, eh.  Going over a cliff. But is that really what will happen. Yes , there will be a Fiscal Cliff , and here is why I am saying it. Our Nation is broke just as much as my State California . So in order to generate revenue the Lame Duck Congress will try to raise taxes on everyone . 
The tax rate reductions implemented by President Bush in 2001 and 2003 will expire. This will increase taxes on Americans, or as the Democrats would say it increases the government’s income, by $281 billion.  This means the average household will pay between $60 and $400 per month in additional taxes, depending upon your income. Go here for a detailed table of how the rates would change and here for what it means state by state. The states most heavily hit would be CT, NY, NJ, MA, and ** CA, in order. The payroll tax holiday enacted in 2010 will expire increasing payroll taxes by 2 points.  For someone earning $50K per year this means you will lose $19 per week. All told this increases taxes by $115 billion. As preserving Social Security and Medicare are things everyone is interested in, this should go away by acclamation. Trust me folks , if Congress can cut the 16 Trillion dollar debt here is a Perfect time for Obama to stick it to us with tax increases by letting it all slide.While there is just two months to this . I am sure that it will weaken the economy to a level worse than several months ago . Here is another catch -22 of this Cliff . The Alternative Minimum Tax will expand as a the eligibility will ensnare more taxpayers. It will raise about $40 billion and will impact about 27 million taxpayers. The good news is that if your make $50K and live alone you are now considered wealthy enough to pay the same tax penalty as millionaires. Welcome to the 1%, bitches. Extended unemployment benefits will expire decreasing government outlays by $34 billion. This will undoubtedly cause some hardship. An estimated 2 million people will lose their benefits from this programObamacare will come into effect and begin collecting taxes, this will increase government revenues by $24 billion. The “doc fix” for Medicare will expire reducing government outlays by $14 billion. (This will be fun to watch play out as Obamacare promised a permanent “doc fix” as a way of buying the American Medical Association.) So let not fool ourselves . It's all a Governmental trick to "raise" revenues , and tax us into debt. I wonder how President 0bama  will explain to his constituency the expiration of their child care credits, their increased taxes (minimum rate goes back from 10-15percent and the threshold incomes go back down their decrease in the payroll tax back up to pre-2008 levels, the earned income credits go back down) and their new taxes under ObamaCare jump. Republicans should point out that the President signed the bill, and therefore owns it. Until he proposes a rational solution to it, that will remain the law of the land. Just sit back and watch our  elected leaders just walk away from this.

** California is an example how a failed Government raises taxes over taxes , and strangely can't balance it's budget . The current (lower) payroll tax rate will increase and extended unemployment benefits will end, cutting benefits for some 500,000 Californians. California would be hit especially hard. A study by Professor Stephen Fuller at George Mason University shows that these cuts would cost California 230,000 jobs - 135,000 from the defense industry and 95,000 from non-defense sectors.

2 bits' of News.

K-12 funding problems are far from over even with the Passing of Prop
The fact that this passed is a fail, but hey, im glad people want to pay more taxes so "history of humor" can be taught! California’s voters avoided massive cuts to public education that would have gone into effect in January by approving Proposition 30, Governor Jerry Brown’s tax measure. Now the question is: when will the money show up? The short answer is the income tax revenue on anyone who earns more than a $250 thousand dollars a year, plus the additional quarter-cent sales tax, will have a ripple effect on the different systems of public education.Moreover, large corporations were given a pass from the rate increase. Skeptics believe that was a strategic maneuver by Brown’s team designed to keep the powerful Chamber of Commerce and other industries on the sidelines during the campaign. “Very frustrating for us,” Kabateck said. The state chamber did remain neutral. It did not return emails asking for comment, nor did Brown’s campaign. For K-12 schools, not much may change in the short term because most districts assembled their budgets assuming that Prop 30 would pass.The extra cash infusion expected next fiscal year – about $5 billion in 2012-13 and an estimated $10 billion in 2013-14 - means students won’t lose any more instructional time and teachers won’t have to take off more unpaid furlough days. School districts are still reeling from $20 billion cut over the last four years. The Prop 30 money isn't going to "restore" anything. It just avoids further cuts. In order to restore programs schools would need 1. to be paid what they are owed due to $10 billion already deferred and 2. additional money on top of that funding. When asked if higher taxes scare the wealthy into fleeing California, Gov. Jerry Brown likes to cite a university study suggesting that divorce is more to blame for chasing out millionaires. “The Stanford study shows very clearly that high paid individuals have more to fear from their spouse than they do from the state of California,” Brown has said, often drawing chuckles. Before last week’s election, much attention was paid to the roughly $6 billion Proposition 30 would raise through temporary tax increases, the bulk of which will go to schools and the rest into the state’s general fund. But the measure also guarantees annual funding for the counties, some of which have struggled to lock up or supervise the additional offenders. But what about next school year? Prop. 30 essentially keeps K-12 education funding level, which means that we still would be 47th out of 50 states in per pupil funding. Regarding higher education, even Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom has publicly said that Brown is misleading college students to believe that passage of Prop. 30 will prevent 2013-2014 tuition increases at campuses of California State University and the University of California systems. (It won’t.) And what about the school year after that? Most voters don’t seem to realize that Prop. 30 is a constitutional amendment that permanently moves a portion of the state prison responsibilities (and its corresponding budget) down to the county level. This is called “realignment,” and it sounds great in theory. But, here is the dirty part: Realignment shrinks the state general fund. Oh, so what? Well, education funding in California is determined each year as a percentage of the state general fund. Basic math tells us that X percent of a smaller number will be smaller than X percent of a bigger number. So, Prop. 30’s realignment provision, by shrinking the state general fund, actually reduces the funds for public education in the long term. Well we just all have to wait and see.......................

Retired U.S. General David Petraeus, the man credited with helping turn around the second Iraq War, has resigned as chief of the Central Intelligence Agency, citing an extramarital affair.

Paula Broadwell promoting her Petraeus biography last January on “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.”Wowee!
CIA Director David Petraeus resigned Friday after admitting to an extramarital affair -- an affair with his biographer that was revealed over the course of an FBI investigation, Fox News has learned. you people actually believe this self-serving trash that Petraeus resigned??  Ho - Ho she's hot . If you see the picture .

He committed the unpardonable crime of letting the truth out about Obama leaving the diplomatic team in Benghazi to be murdered at the hands of the people Team O and the State Dept put in power.  
Enough with this idiotic cowardly hand wringing about an investigation.   We already know what happened.  The  Claim that the FBI had been investigating an unrelated and much broader case before stumbling on the affair. Fox News has learned that during the course of this investigation, the name of biographer Paula Broadwell came up. The FBI followed that lead and in doing so, uncovered his affair with her. The FBI for some time was concerned that perhaps Petraeus was some sort of victim, but there has been no evidence discovered to back up such concerns. Broadwell co-wrote Petraeus' biography, "All In." That's a good and healthy looking woman. She's a triathlete and it shows. I can't hate on the general, I'd be highly tempted too. Have you seen the picture of his wife? These women get married then let themselves go, are always tired when the man is feeling frisky, then wonder why he strayed.That's a good and healthy looking woman. She's a triathlete and it shows.

These women get married then let themselves go, are always tired when the man is feeling frisky, then wonder why he strayed.Analyzing Broadwell's physical self-presentation: As a late-thirties female doing interviews for a book she's just published, she is dressed way too young. Too young to the point of possibly suggesting psychological issues above and beyond the usual human anxiety over getting older and experiencing waning physical attractiveness. I mean...ruffles? Really?? And what is up with the skin-tight jeans tucked into boots. Is this a high school production of Grease. It's sort of a mid-to-late twenties version of looking nice - not what a professional woman who's almost forty wears into a press encounter.  The way she winks at the interviewer at :50 seconds into the CBS interview creeps me out and makes me wonder about her extracurricular activities more generally. It just seems icky. For surely it was just a coincidence that Petraeus resigned on Thursday, the very same day that Fox News reported that the Foreign Affairs Committee was planning to call him to testify at their Benghazi hearings, along with Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and Matt Olsen, the director of the National Counterterrorism Center. Surely that had nothing to do with Petraeus’s decision to submit his resignation. This couldn’t have had anything to do with his quitting. It is much more likely indeed that suddenly, just as the news that he was going to be summoned to testify came in to his office, Petraeus was overcome with remorse over his affair, and decided – although apparently the affair began some time ago, since there were rumors about it while he was still in Afghanistan – that Thursday was the day, right then and there, to come clean and resign his position.The preposterousness of this scenario is obvious. And the convenience of the timing for Barack Obama cannot be overlooked. Now Petraeus will not be testifying at the House hearings, and so, barring a subpoena, the primary witness to who ordered the CIA to stand down in Benghazi has been removed.

The fiscal challenges ahead.

President tears up addressing team at campaign headquarters, while advisers discuss how to maintain 'ground game'

January is two month's away and so are looming economic problems .With the Fiscal cliff just a breath away from all of us . President Obama asked key congressional leaders to visit the White House early next week in a bid to stave off the looming fiscal cliff. “I’m open to compromise. I’m open to new ideas. I’m committed to solving our fiscal challenges, but I refuse to accept any approach that isn’t balanced,” he said in remarks from the White House—his first public utterance since his wee-hours victory speech. Yet Obama shed a few tears while addressing his team earlier at his campaign head quarters . Perhaps President  Obama has a sense of worry . At this point President Obama is ready to face off with House Speaker John Boehner next week "so we can start to build consensus around the challenges that we can only solve together."The president was referring to $64 billion in automatic spending cuts that will take effect in January if a deal cannot be reached. Those cuts are mandated by the Budget Control Act that Obama signed into law last year. Budget analysts call the combination of automatic spending cuts and tax increases set to occur at year end the fiscal cliff.As part of an agreement to avoid the fiscal cliff, Obama and congressional leaders must also agree how much taxes ought to go up and which taxpayers will be hit by tax hikes. According to the Congressional Budget Office taxes will increase by more than $400 billion in 2013 under current law.Adding to the pressure to design a deal that would avoid the fiscal cliff, the CBO on Thursday repeated its previous warnings that the spending cuts, combined with scheduled tax increases, would probably cause a recession next year.Specifically the CBO said in its Thursday report that the tax increases and spending cuts would cause the unemployment rate to rise to 9.1 percent by the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to a jobless rate of 7.9 percent in October.  The tax increases would raise the average tax burden by almost $3,500 per taxpayer in 2013, according to According to the Tax Policy Center. This would happen because the current income tax rates and some tax breaks are scheduled to expire or shrink on Dec. 31. Among them, the popular middle-class tax break, a $1,000-per-child tax credit for each child age 17 and younger, would be cut in half. In addition, starting on Jan. 1, the Affordable Care Act imposes a $20 billion tax increase on people with incomes above $200,000, or $250,000 for joint filers.  Adding to the tax increase, a temporary reduction in the Social Security payroll tax is set to expire at year end.The president has argued for raising taxes on Americans with incomes over $200,000 and over $250,000 for married couples who file jointly.But the exact mix of tax increases and who must pay them will be the subject of intense negotiations between the president and congressional leaders over the next few weeks.


Maybe now that Obama has won, he can reveal his secret plan for dealing with his 6 trillion dollar debt.So far, all I've heard from Obama is the reapeal of the Bush tax cuts for the top 3%, which comes to about 80 billion dollars (generously, and assumes billionairs won't move their money to avoid paying higher taxes).Where does the other 1.17 trillion dollars in anual shortfall come from? Where are Obama's 1.17 Trillion dollar cuts?Dems are too stupid to subtract 80 billion from 1.25 Trillion, and so they think the tax cuts on the rich solves the whole problem. Just like they think shorting Medicare by 760 Billion dollars will save 760 billion dollars. Never mind that that has been tried for over a decade and every year, congress must reconvene to write a second check to Medicare. If he was a Reagan he'd go on TV and get the country behind him and pressure the congress to get this work done.  How many times?  As many as it takes, and as often as he needs to embarrass somebody to get it done.  I'm tired of excuses from both parties, but he has the big job...let him earn it.  He pointed fingers for four years, now he needs to get something.  Enough skating from Obama.

Four More Years ......................

Despite the odds of his record Obama won a Second term. 

 Could it be that by a slight chance game Obama wins a second term ?
One Night I was flipping the channels on my remote . As I was surfing , changing channels . I for a brief second in time & how it came about in some galactic intermission moment on one of those government channels saw a minute glimpse of the future.............................There was ole President Obama speaking to the league of women voters . On the bottom of my TV caption read 2014 . Now you tell me how this could of happened ? In some Twilight Zone kinda way there it was Obama speaking and it's the year 2014 . This information would un-nerve every Tea Party member, and most of all the GOP. What I am saying could be real . If true , what a joke it would be in COSMIC STANDARDS . Obama won the 2012 reelection. How could this have happened ?   From my Blog  posting  " 2012 election PREDICTION."  9/26/11 .

Well I was last night watching FOX NEWS waiting for the numbers to come in , as close to 8 :00 p.m. PST Obama had gathered over 230 or so delegates . Every election night has at least one standout television moment,  and  -- with all due respect to John King and his magical fingertips -- the clear winner Tuesday was Republican strategist Karl Rove, who staged a civil war on the air after Fox News called Ohio -- and therefore the entire election -- for President ObamaTechnically speaking, it was Chris Wallace who fired the first shot. Shortly after Fox projected Obama as the winner, Wallace explained that he had received an email from the Romney campaign contesting the network’s decision.   Karl Rove made a fool of himself on television .  Rove wasn’t willing to concede, either, saying it was premature to call the race, even though most of the remaining votes were from Ohio's Democratic-leaning Cuyahoga County. After several minutes of protest, he warned,  “I’d be very cautious about intruding into the process.” The entire panel on FOX news looked as if  they were about to have a nervous breakdown . Wallace was left nearly speechless by Rove’s obstinacy. “Well, folks,” he said, laughing nervously. “Maybe not so fast.” That’s when Megyn Kelly stepped in -- or, to be more precise, stepped out -- leaving the Fox News studio and making the long walk through a labyrinth of offices to the ”Decision Desk,” a.k.a. the conference room full of number crunchers who make projections for the network.   Sadly to say to my Republican friends . Obama won . After the FOX news people falling apart there was one logical person who warned them that Mitt Romney may not win altogether . It was Bill O'Reilly. Mr. O'Reilly warned his viewers in his nightly tacking points memo the consequence of "making predictions". I am guilty my self of making predictions . I wanted Gov. Romney to win , and I wrote and told my friends that the race was close . Yes it was close . Romney won the popular vote , he started ahead of Obama with electoral votes . Regardless the electoral  map shows that 90 % of the country is a red State . With the exception of my state California and Ohio there are vary few blue states in the United States , each of the blue states have high electoral numbers. 

Our Nation at a glance , More red than blue .
Why did Obama win?
It wont end there folks . Obama won his second term . The explanations ?  Perhaps the easy explanation is that two hurricanes and two betrayals by Chris Christie killed Mitt Romney's chances.The first hurricane was Isaac, the one that skirted Tampa in late August during the Republican convention. That one seriously disrupted the official schedule. GOP star Marco Rubio — who gave the best speech of the convention — was bumped off prime-time TV coverage, and so was the video biography "introducing" Mitt to the nation. Aging actor Clint Eastwood was scrambled into the schedule to offer a funny but often incoherent monologue with an empty chair. He stole Mitt's show. And prime-time keynoter Chris Christie barely mentioned the nominee or Obama in a speech that sounded like the New Jersey governor was pumping his re-election.
The ground lost in Tampa wasn't regained until the first debate in Denver, when Romney shined. It was the first, best, and last time he would really sparkle.As a result of the debates, by late October polls showed that Romney was finally beginning to see a surge.Then the second hurricane, Sandy, struck on Oct. 29. The campaign went into “freeze” mode while Obama swung into “commander in chief” mode. Romney's surge was suddenly frozen too.The reason for this is the demographics have changed in the US. It is more of an entitlement society now than ever, and that is what Democrats want. Give away record amounts to Welfare recipients, food stamp recipients and even student loan recipients and you will win their votes forever. The Republicans no longer have a chance to win and probably won't for a long long time.

Four More years with Obama. 
After $6 billion, two dozen presidential primary election days, a pair of national conventions, four general election debates, hundreds of Congressional contests and more television advertisements than anyone would ever want to watch, the two major political parties in America essentially fought to a standstill.  The Stock Market reacted , U.S. investors dumped stocks Wednesday and turned their focus to a world of problems - tax increases and spending cuts that could stall the nation's economic recovery and a deepening recession in Europe.The Dow Jones industrial average plummeted as much as 369 points, or 2.6 percent, in the first two hours of trading. The average was on track for its worst decline in a year. At 10:30 a.m. PDT, stocks were down 264 points.The Standard & Poor's 500 index fell as much as 40 points, or 2.8 percent. With this Mr. Obama has a vary hard job in regards to his relation with Congress . Can he get is act together to prevent the "fiscal Cliff  " ? The balance of power hasn't literally shifted, but a sitting president being re-elected with 300+ electoral votes in this economic climate is not to be ignored. The issue that screams for first-100-days attention is immigration reform. Any sensible Republican can tell you that the Latino vote is a demographic time bomb for the GOP. If Republicans don't moderate their politics on immigration issues, they'll keep a toehold on control of the House of Reps but won't make inroads in the electoral college for decades to come. The marriage of country club Republicans with an aging rural voting constituency is a loser for the foreseeable future. Obama and the Congress has to sit down this new year and get the country working by  putting aside party politics . But there were strong indications that the first two years of Obama’s second term would resemble the final two years of his first term – that is with a Republican-held House and nominally Democratic Senate stalemated over major tax and spending issues, as the balance of power in Congress remained unchanged after Election Day.  The specter of gridlock appeared quickly as Obama prepared to confront the immediate task in addressing the series of automatic tax hikes and spending cuts – the so-called “fiscal cliff” – set to spring into place at the end of this year. Obama must put himself out there and get to know the Republicans in Congress and win their trust and respect. Obama needs to get the he11 out of the White House and over to the Capitol just like Reagan did despite the hatred he was first greeted with when he came into office. We need "Obama Republicans" just like the GOP had "Reagan Democrats".
