I think he should start with Congress' wealth, since most of them have mysteriously grown their wealth exponentially at a rate much higher than the average "investor". How is that "fair", Barry? Aren't you all about being "fair"??

F***ing socialist.

Dictator? that would be a little much for the American public... he's actually Apollo and we need further analysis because that man sure has enemies now

My politicians are to be working on something else, mostly foreign affairs in my opinion... we can take care of our own in America as if she doesn't take care of us enough already!



this man is doing nothing but turning in on the American people slandering and throwing racism out thru the medias... Like I care? our nation got over slavery quite awhile ago but I guess some of they who experienced the 60's never evolved their mindset. There are so many interracial couples out there it is not even funny, myself being in quite a few of them being an American and all.

Obama you better get to work or who the American people work for will not be working... in a silent rebellion by not paying taxes... I certainly am not going to pay for this crap! and obviously that is exactly what the nation s doing because "their" economy graph is looking kind of flatlined. (of course the media is covering this up too)

our Supreme Leader can do no wrong...

Hitler was a socialist,

Germany experienced massive technological growth before they set off on their world conquest...

if the American public love-worships any of these politicians we are all doomed! they must remain on their toes or the next thing you know you will be on a openly spoken world conquest.

his voters are Powerslaves nothing more

Xuenchen, I haven't read the thread yet (8 pages at this point). But I want to add something that might be pertinent in explaining Obama's attitude.

One of the Islamic virtues is redistribution of wealth. This was a continuation of an old Arab custom. So there is a certain commonality among Muslims and Communists, Islamic Extremists or Jihadists are linked with the Left-wing worldwide.
edit on 3-4-2012 by AuranVector because: (no reason given)


wow!!!......now the connection is between left-wing liberals, and islamic extremists?, what world do you live in?
that is the most ignorant, and/or naive statement that i have heard, since the last time i inadvertantly turned on FOX NEWS


Ignorant & naive? Really? I suggest you read "Muhammad: A Biography of the Prophet" by Karen Armstrong.
This particular biography is actually considered fair & balanced by Muslims.

Turn to pages 58 & 59, where the concept of muruwah among pre-Islamic Arabs is explained.

One of the aspects of the "communal spirit" of muruwah, is a sharing of wealth within the community or tribe. A good Arab was expected to take care of weaker members of the community.

This pre-Islamic concept of muruwah was not only continued by Muhammad, but expanded upon.

As for the worldwide alliance between Islamic Extremists (Jihadists) and the Left-wing, this has been noted on air by Anderson Cooper during a demonstration in Egypt.

This newscast was about an American woman* who joined the Jihadists in Egypt to demonstrate -- her name escapes me at the moment. She's the one who freaked out after her son was killed in Iraq.

Anderson Cooper described the alliance as "well-known."

*The American woman's name is Cindy Sheehan.

The following link takes you to a photo of her waving a communist flag:

In Genesis, Adam and Eve’s first-born son is Cain and their second-born son is Abel. Cain becomes a farmer and Abel becomes a shepherd. When Cain offers the fruit of his farming to God and Abel offers a lamb, God is pleased with Abel’s offering but not Cain’s. Cain then kills Abel. When God asks Cain where Abel is, Cain says: “Am I my brother’s keeper?”



has anyone ever noticed, that the lord never actually answered that question and abruptly changes the subject?

Healthcare for all in a single payer model is the way to go. Today's insurance companies are crooks.

The only other way to go is to deny sick or dying people health care because they don't have insurance. Single payer is the only option.

We are a 1st world country, we should have 1st world health care for all citizens.

He may want us to be our brothers keeper but his brother is living in poverty and he does nothing about it.

Redistribution of wealth always sounds good, except for those whose wealth it is to be distributed.

Who the hell voted for this fool in 2008?

Lets throw more money at education..........well that hasnt been working(for years). OK now lets tax the hell out of millionaires, that more then likely own a buisness, bet they dont pass the extra tax cost off to thier customers(joke).Has anyone noticed that no one is really talking about the national debt( which both parties did to us) in this election year. We are broke,dead ass broke and it wont be long before it all comes crashing down. I dont no about anyone else, this isnt about party politics,it is not about pointing fingers and who is right or wrong,it is about doing what is right, it is about our future. The kid said something smart the other day, 370,000,000 people in this country and this is the best we can come up with. WOW !!!!!

your talking about a very specific kind of socialist of the past . whereas in 2012 most people talk about social democracy which has really binned the idea of moving to a purely socialist economy

Instead its more about having a mixed market economy with good funding for social programs, improving capitalism to make it more stable, helping those in need like the poor and destitute. Yes this requires bigger redistribution of wealth. I'm all for it

The Truth is our country is based on and given the land to us the opportunity of freedom to co-create. The attack on prosperity is in contrast to the teachings of the Bible given to us in the parable of the Talents and the right to conduct business according to how we feel and desire by the teaching of the owner of the vineyard. The attempts to take the wealth from those who have earned it honestly is nothing short of short circuiting the plan of prosperity offered as an opportunity to every person by God. If you need supply ask God, No demand it from him. He wants us to depend on him and not the government. If we depend on him and TRUST IN HIM he will not fail us. This is the separation of light and darkness. Open your eyes and see. Listen and hear. Pray for the resurrection of The United States of America and Freedom.
Freedom is like sand, while you watch it can slip through your fingers.

Socialism always comes down to the workers owning the companies...and that is the direct opposite of what it means to be American....private property rights. Most people in this country do not want their rights to own businesses to be taken away...that is what the backlash against the unions is all about.

America is the land of the free and that means private property rights including businesses and it also means the government should not be giving money to any businesses or bailing anyone out...that just screws up the natural evolution of the free market.

You know, the problem with taking Barry at his word this time about the wonderful and bright future plans he has for us all is that this isn't a new guy fighting against the establishment. HE IS THE ESTABLISHMENT and has been for over 3 yearsin D.C. and several more in the Senate.

He talks the talk so well even I find myself swayed occasionally by his speeches. His charisma is almost spooky. Fortunately, his skill and record are no match for his ability to sling the crap. All I have to do is remind myself that this was all said 3-4 years ago.....it was said often and with even MORE promise than this drivel.

3-4 years after it was all said before...We're still lamenting the same problems and they're as bad or worse. So before I even pretend to humor the man about what 4 MORE years can do I need to know what the LAST 3+ years actually accomplished to the LAST set of pie in the sky dream talk.

If track record defines a person, Obama is really better off pretending he IS really an outsider and he's running against himself. He sure can't stand on much more than the TALK of the past. It's all he's actually done to brag about.


Consumer protection act
dont ask, dont tell repeal
-attempt- at closing Gitmo
some health care reform passed (albeit a compromised pos with no single payer system)
there is more...stop using ATS flame board to measure the man and look at what was passed, what was promised, and what -exactly- is holding up the rest of the promises...you will see filibuster opposition to him fulfilling most of the campaign promises at the moment...

So, lets not talk about what he said and didn't do, lets look at what its not done...see the spike trap on the road verses be angry that the car stopped...





...stop using ATS flame board to measure the man and look at what was passed, what was promised, and what -exactly- is holding up the rest of the promises...you will see filibuster opposition to him fulfilling most of the campaign promises at the moment...


I am looking at what he's done and what he hasn't. He swore to end two wars

Bzzt, wrong.
He said he would end iraq (done) and would refocus back on afhganistan (done). Sorry if you decided to think what he said verses hear what he said..but he was very clear on this.

As for the rest of your anti-war rant...tell you what...put a republican in office...see what happens.

get your flags ready..you will be instructed to wave them lots as more men go off and fight big wars in iran, syria, etc...cause..you know..our freedoms or something.
