    freidmanite neoliberal

     

    There's a vast difference between the free-market principles espoused by Milton Freidman and crony capitalism as practiced by Obama.

     

     



    The crony capitalism that Obama follows has it's roots in a political philosophy of the 30's in a european sort of way.

    Milt Friedman was a genius.

    The far left isn't crazy about Obama either..so I doubt they are ignoring his perceived failures.

    Another collasal failure not being duly reported in the good ole USA

    UN investigators suspect that chemical weapons attacks in Syria were carried out by the country's rebels and not forces loyal to the regime.

    Former war crimes prosecutor Carla Del Ponte told Swiss TV that a UN commission has 'strong, concrete suspicions' that rebels had used the nerve agent sarin gas.

    'This was use on the part of the opposition, the rebels, not by the government authorities,' she said.

    Her comments came as fierce fighting continued in Syria, where rebels in the east claimed to have shot down a military helicopter, and government forces defended a military air base in the north for the secnod straight day.

    Syria has claimed that rebels used chemical weapons in an attack Tuesday in Khan al-Asal in the northern province of Aleppo, according to state-run media.

    You do not see the difference in CNN reporting that Syira claims it wasnt them and the UN stating it was the rebels?

    Now analysts are also "leaning hard away" from the notion that Syria used chemical weapons against its own people, a U.S. military official directly familiar with the preliminary analysis told CNN.


    The Syrian government has sent U.N. investigators the results of blood and soil testing from a mysterious attack that killed 25 people and injured more than 110 others, CNN affiliate ITN reported Sunday.




    So, that's a NO. Got it.

    I guess the UN investigators aren't really part of the UN

    And why bother listening to our own intelligence sevices when you idiots now are big fans of the UN... except all the other times when you wanted the US to stop funding them and kick them out of the country. Now they're your BFF's.




    LOL, You nor anyone else really expected the UN inspectors (Syria sent??) to state that it could be the rebels using chemical weapons including the POTUS.

    I don't trust the UN and I do not think they have freedom/liberty/democracy and the US's interest at heart.

    lol whatever.

    So, Obama said redline in regards to Syria but, is it the same redline if, it's rebels?

    Seems like a tough spot for him since it can't go both ways but, works very advantageous to Assad, russia and china. Which make me wonder how truthful the UN is again!?!?

    Find your brain cell's on switch and move it.

    If the rebels did in fact use them, what are you suggesting Obama do? Ask Assad if he needs some troops?

    Assad is a murderous dictator himself.


     
    damn emotional twit.

    Im not saying anything other than it a tough situation and what do you (the message board) think should/could be done now.

    if the rebels are using sarin they are all murderous thugs!

    take a pill or something; I asked a question

    who drew the red line?  tvoter, or Obama?

    In your answer is the answer.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-partisan/wp/2013/05/06/the-insiders-hard-facts-cloud-the-obama-presidency/

    E.J. Dionne Jr. wrote yesterday that “many Americans have lost the sense of what he [President Obama] is doing to improve their lives.” Dionne goes on to say that to combat this disillusionment, President Obama needs to do a better job of telling the American people how his agenda promotes “growth and opportunity.”

    The fact is that President Obama needs a new agenda, not a better way of selling the status quo. If we define the success of the Obama presidency by examining some of the quantifiable facts that measure our country’s progress, it’s hard to argue that the lives of Americans have improved over the past four years or that these discouraging trends are going to be reversed anytime soon.

    Since Obama’s first full month in office in February 2009, the unemployment rate has gone from terrible (8.3 percent) to very bad (7.5 percent). But a true picture of just how bad the unemployment situation is in our country is revealed by the fact that more than 9.5 million people have dropped out of the labor force since the president took office in 2009. Undoubtedly, the impact of this number is reflected in some of the other indices and statistics that we can use to objectively measure the success of the Obama presidency.

    In the past five years, 9.5 million people have quit working and the current labor force participation rate is just 63.6 percent, the lowest it’s been since May 1979. More than 15.2 million more people are on food stamps today than were in February 2009, and during the same time frame, the poverty rate has increased by 0.7 percent.

    Gasoline prices have almost doubled under Obama, and there’s nothing more corrosive for the middle class than when more cash comes out of everyone’s pockets at the pump. This is especially true given that the median household income has dropped more than $3,000 during the Obama presidency.

    All the while we have experienced the biggest jump in our national debt in history under Obama, with the debt exploding from $11 trillion at the end of 2008 to almost $17 trillion today. And I’ll point out once again that if we look at this huge number in more relatable terms, our current national debt translates to a cost of more than $148,000 per taxpayer, up from just over $90,000 per taxpayer in 2008.

    Even the infamous “Misery Index,” created by Jimmy Carter, has gotten worse under the Obama presidency. Remember, the Misery Index is the unemployment rate plus the inflation rate. In January 2009, the index was 7.83, but as of March 2013, it increased to 9.07.

    It’s safe to say that the above statistics are key benchmarks of the U.S. economy. You can pick through other available figures and try to find some small pieces of good news, but by any measure, what these data show is that things have gotten worse rather than better for many Americans during Obama’s tenure. His time to enact change is rapidly diminishing, and as I have referenced over the past couple weeks, he appears to be out of ideas and energy. His second-term agenda, which should be fresh and marching its way through Congress, is nowhere to be seen. Given where we are now, it is hard to see how Democratic candidates will want to embrace an Obama agenda in the 2014 election.

    Lol it's not about Obama!!

    It's about a federal govt that is no longer "for the people". We have a federal washington establishment that is about more power and control over the people because they claim to know whats better for EVERYONE EVERYWHERE in washington than states, locals or individuals!

    Like the majority of the GOP senators voting against background checks when buying firearms even though a vast majority of Americans citizens are for it !

    The republicans and dems who voted against it claimed to do so because it did not address the actual paraded problem.

    It would not have stopped the Newtown masacre etc.

    Do something that helps solve the Fing problem instead of just laws so politicians can grandstand about doing something!

    The Newton Massacre is not the only problem with guns in America. That is true regardless of whether politicians pointed to Newton in pushing expanded background checks.



    True enough.  However, I always get stuck on how the proposed laws seem to be aimed at the law abiding.  Heck, even the Obama administration understands that illegal guns are the problem, not legal ones.  This is the whole intent behind Fast and Furious, export legal guns to Mexico, have them come back in as illegal guns, then scream and howl about how guns need to be confiscated.
