What they agree on...

Postby Stella_Guru » Wed Aug 29, 2012 1:23 pm

Thirteen issues Obama and Romney agree on; 13. The Feds shouldn't enact any sort of WPA-style program to put ppl back to work.
12. Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security need to be cut to relieve the deficit.
11. NAFTA should be extended to Pacific Rim, Central and South America.
10. Banksters and Wall St. speculators deserve their bailouts and protection from criminal liability, but underwater and foreclosed homeowners deserve nothing.
9. Africa should be militarized and plundered.
8. U.S. Presidents can kidnap, torture, murder, and indefinately imprison anyone anywhere.
7. Oil and energy companies must be freed to drill offshore almost everywhere and permitted to poison land and water with fracking to achieve energy independence.
6. The FCC shouldn't regulate telecoms to insure that poor and rural communities have access to internet.
5. There really are such things as clean coal and safe nuclear power.
4. Immigrants must be jailed and deported in record numbers.
3. No Medicare for all.
2. No minimum wage increase and no enforcement or reform of existing labor laws.
1. The 40 year war on drugs must continue.

You're just making that up. Obama hasn't really agreed to those things. Has he?

Wasn't any of that covered in the movie? No? Oh that's right, the movie just had lots of made up stuff in it.

12. See "Grand Bargain"; also, Simpson-Bowles.

8. "Due process, but not neccessarily judicial process"

3. Instead we get the PPACA (aka Obamacare)

1. See: crackdown on medical pot

Even the lame-stream-media covers these issues.

The only thing covered in the movie, which can also be gleaned by reading Obama's book Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance - and when I say covered, I mean completely covered - is that Obama was carefully schooled by his mother to hate middle class Americans and, if he gets a second term, he will predictably make his memory of her proud.

Pretty much what I've been she 2 saying all along. The problems is not the Demmies or the Repos. It is the DC party. There is not a dime's worth of difference between two parties.

Look what the Repos did with the rules committee. They got worried that another Paul might come along in the future and threaten their rice bowls. So they fixed it to give even more power to the DC party.

Screw them all.

15. Don't mention the prison state and its 2.3 million prisoners, a per capita total that beats the world.
