Obama agenda: Heading to Kansas City
“Locked in a tug of war with lawmakers over spending and borrowing, President Barack Obama is pressing his case in America’s heartland that Congress mustn’t jeopardize fragile economic progress with threats of a government shutdown,” AP writes. “A recently expanded auto plant near Kansas City, Mo., is the venue for Obama to argue Friday that the U.S. economy is primed to thrive, if only Congress will let it.”
By the way, Obama’s trip to Kansas City today does not land on the front page of the Kansas City Star. MUCH bigger news was the Chiefs’ Thursday night 26-16 win over the Philadelphia Eagles that saw Chiefs’ head coach Andy Reid’s victorious return to the city where he coached for 13 years.
Obama is coming to Kansas City today? Who knew?? (Big whoop)
I'm going to Subway today.
I'll have a more positive impact on the economy than Obama.
If you actually think about it you will! Obama will be spending probably hundreds of thousands of tax payer dollars,
According to our source, within the secret organization allegedly at Fort Leonard Wood and corroborated with many eye witness accounts, the military had started a secret program in 1983 at Fort Leonard Wood when locals found a crashed UFO on the boarder of the Mark Twain National Forest and the military reservation. Shortly after the crash was found, many sightings of Sasquatch like creatures were seen throughout Pulaski county. The latest sightings of UFOs and Sasquatch like creatures happened December 24, 2009 near the Gasconade River, just off Highway 133. Our source said that the UFO studied at Fort Leonard Wood was actually a control module and incubation chamber created by advanced reptoid aliens. The module/incubation chamber held the DNA of the reptiod aliens genetically altered ape-like shock troops used to destroy humanity. Some of the creatures escaped and started to breed in the wild. Without an active control module to condition them for combat, the creatures reverted to a natural state. Many sightings of these creatures have been seen throughout the county. Our source has also stated that the U.S. Army has created a new module, and with the remaining DNA found in the original craft, have created their own version of those Sasquatch type shock troops. Our source also stated that they will be tested in Afghanistan sometime in 2010.
So i am curious, what is up in KC this weekend that would draw the POTUS?
What possible reason could you have had for starting this thread in the first place?
To inform us that the POTUS was in town and you didn't care?
That too is preposterous.
You could have done this yourself but chose instead to make an ultimately empty thread that failed to point out that very soon more people in Kansas City will be working to make an american product which ultimately has a positive effect on your local economy as well as that of the nation.

If you want to give up then cool, most people have or will, but i have yet to stop believing that we as a people are better and can continue to be better if we took a breath, stepped back and realized that the real problem in America isn't JUST Obama.
