Barack HUSSEIN Obama Hates The United States of America




Does President Obama hate the United States of America?

Conservative friend George says so.

Here's his proof:

Subject: USA... What we asked for????

PLEASE READ AND FORWARD WITHOUT CHANGING OR ADDING A SINGLE WORD.

I forward this as received and without comment.

Yes, he told us in advance what he planned to do. Few were listening.

The following is a narrative taken from a 2008 Sunday morning televised "Meet The Press'.

From Sunday's 07 Sept. 2008 11:48:04 EST, Televised "Meet the Press" THE THEN Senator Obama was asked about his stance on the American Flag.

General Bill Ginn' USAF (ret.) asked Obama to explain WHY he doesn't follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.

The General stated to Obama that according to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171...

During rendition of the national anthem, when the flag is displayed, all present (except those in uniform) are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Or, at the very least, "Stand and Face It".

NOW GET THIS !!

'Senator'Obama replied:

"As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as taking sides". "There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression.." "The anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all that sort of thing."

(ARE YOU READY FOR THIS???)

Obama continued: "The National Anthem should be 'swapped' for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song 'I'd Like To Teach the World To Sing'. If that were our anthem, then, I might salute it. In my opinion, we should consider reinventing our National Anthem as well as 'redesign' our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love. It's my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we, as a Nation of waring people, conduct ourselves like the nations of Islam, where peace prevails - - - perhaps a state or period of mutual accord could exist between our governments ......"

When I become President, I will seek a pact of agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts. We as a Nation, have placed upon the nations of Islam, an unfair injustice which is WHY my wife disrespects the Flag and she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past".

"Of course now, I have found myself about to become the President of the United States and I have put my hatred aside. I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new path..My wife and I look forward to becoming our Country's First black Family. Indeed, CHANGE is about to overwhelm the United States of America " 
WHAAAAAAAT, the Hell is that???

Yes, you read it right.

I, for one, am speechless!!!

Dale Lindsborg , Washington Post

EVERYONE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA NEEDS TO READ THIS, KEEP IT GOING ! ! SAVE AMERICA BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE ! !

                                                                                         ***

Wow!

Obama really does hate America!    
   
He even said so on “Meet the Press” – Sunday, 07 Sept. 2008 11:48:04 EST! 
                                                                         
Wait a minute...

Here's what Snopes says - http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/stance.asp    

Once "bells have been rung" -- once "eggs have been cracked" -- they will never be un-rung and un-cracked.

Currently, American “conservatives” capitalize on the irreversibility of "popularized falsehood." Dedicated to mendacity, they goose-step with The Prince of Darkness, seeking political advantage from the deliberate propagation of lies – both “big” and “small.”

De novo fabrication -- down to the last jot and tittle -- is their "standard operating procedure."

If "The Truth Will Set Us Free," this generation of "conservatives" will lead us into bondage.

"Things to Tax" - Paul Krugman

Total US Tax Revenue as a Percentage of GDP


Total US tax revenue as a percentage of GDP


As a percentage of GNP, the total tax burden in the United States is at its lowest level since 1959. http://www.deptofnumbers.com/blog/2010/08/tax-revenue-as-a-fraction-of-gdp/


"Things to Tax" by Paul Goodman 
http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/28/opinion/krugman-things-to-tax.html?src=recg

Excerpt: "And it’s instructive, too, to note that some countries already have financial transactions taxes — and that among those who do are Hong Kong and Singapore. If some conservative starts claiming that such taxes are an unwarranted government intrusion, you might want to ask him why such taxes are imposed by the two countries that score highest on the Heritage Foundation’s Index of Economic Freedom." 



A.A. I have long supported a financial transaction tax. During my 1950s' boyhood, the commission on a typical stock trade ranged from $50.00 to $100.00 -- in today's dollars. Since the 1980s, that range has been between $7.00 and $10.00. Tens of billions of dollars of revenue could be raised from Americans who are in the best position to pay by imposing a $15.00 stock transaction tax, a tax that would still leave contemporary traders paying far less on their stock transactions than they paid during the boom years of the Eisenhower administration. Krugman also notes: "Because there are so many transactions, such a fee could yield several hundred billion dollars in revenue over the next decade. Again, this compares favorably with the savings from many of the harsh spending cuts being proposed in the name of fiscal responsibility. But wouldn’t such a tax hurt economic growth? ... The evidence suggests not — if anything, it suggests that to the extent that taxing financial transactions reduces the volume of wheeling and dealing, that would be a good thing."

Vital community is the best medicine



America requires the most expensive per capita healthcare on earth, not because the American "sickcare" system is better, but because, over time, we have constituted the sickest society on earth.

Why are an unusually sick people because we we subscribe to the pathogenic political philosophy that "We are all in this... alone."

Alternatively, the best preventive medicine is rich participation in vital community life.
