Letter: More change is coming

For 62 years, I was perfectly content being totally disinterested in anything political. Then, when Senator Obama decided to run for the presidency, and I saw the immoral way he was being treated, I found myself suddenly and totally engrossed in everything political, and started listening to the news 24/7. And for the last five years, I have dwelt on the dedication our president put forth to bring us out of the Republican's recession, and the deplorable and unrelenting lies, extremism, racism, and antics of the Republican Party.

I have defended President Obama tirelessly against the tirades of Obama haters in these letters to the editor. I, along with other Democrats, have been called stupid and ignorant and every other derogatory name by right-wing posters simply because we support our president. Yet these same posters believe the hate and ridiculous garbage spewed by the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck, and Sean Hannity.

We Democrats have been personally attacked and ridiculed by these radical, conspiracy-loving Obama-haters. And I, for one, have grown tired of trying to talk sense to people whose only sense is ruled by hatred and lies. I am proud of President Obama and his accomplishments. He has brought this country back from a devastating recession and kept us from suffering through another Great Depression. However, since having my heart attack, I realized that I had better things to do with the rest of my life than dwell on the letters to the editor section of this newspaper or listening to the news.

I will continue to support our president and Democrats with my vote, without any interference from those who resort to lies in order to prove their point and who despise all Democrats. The more extreme and radical the Republicans become because they are ruled by the Tea Party, more and more people will vote the Republicans out of office. Once this obstructionist party no longer has the ability to obstruct, then the Democrats will get done what needs to get done. Whew! Already, I feel as though a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.

Ms Athens

“The silence from the left is deafening but I suppose by now, they all know global warming doesn't exist and never did exist.”

You’re wrong. Empirical evidence is available by going to climate/nasa.gov. I apologize because it is not FAUX News or right wing shouting head site.

“Wind farms are a very costly joke at our expense, thousands of birds are dead because of them…”

It was about two years ago that you were shown that, although correct, there are many other sources killing millions of birds. The primary killer of bids is feral and domestic cats. Next are power lines with 130-174 million bird kills annually. Windows account for 100 million. Pesticides take out about 70 million. Cars kill between 60 and 80 million,. Communications towers wipe out 40 to 50 million. Wind turbines - only 40,000.

“..and our tax dollars have been totally wasted on this crazy nonsense.”

Tell that to people who have wind turbines supplying power to their homes.

”Had Romney been elected, we would probably be drilling for more oil in our own country, creating more jobs.”

Actually had Willard the Money hider been allowed into the White House it would have been a greater economic disaster than that The Criminal stuck us with. Willard’s track record of job destruction, favoring COMMUNIST CHINESE sweatshops, hiding his money off-shore and being a tax cheat is proof of his hatred of America and American workers.

”And that whopping $33,000 you are giving back to the treasury out of the $400,000 salary you get - well, it is actually miserly. 5%.”

How much are Republican members of Congress giving back? Oh, that’s right 0%!

“Meanwhile your black brothers …”

And there it is again – bringing race to these pages.

"Chuckles, im not mad about obama not passing a budget, im just saying that that doesnt mean he hasnt blown up our debt. Thats a fact"

Then you are mad about nothing, because nobody is saying he hasn't increased the debt.

"If they are gun free zones, maybe that is why they get robbed so often. If Banks were gun free zones why do they let guards wear guns at least the banks with guns do not get hit quite as often wouldn't you say?"

Not sure what point you are making here.

As a person who spent 15 years working in banks, I only stated that banks are gun free zones. I was not commenting on the merits of such a law. Just correcting an incorrect "fact" in your post.

Of course, guards, who must hold a guard card or some certification, are permitted to carry a gun in the bank in which they are stationed while on duty.
Just as police officers are permitted to carry a gun into banks.

Additionally, I am not a liberal and I do not agree with the policies of "mexifornia". I have no idea why you addressed any of your comment to me.

Like I said before, you would think you liberals would look at what liberalism has done to Mexifornia and try to keep it from happening to our State, but for some reason, Mexifornians when they move, try to change the State the move to like Mexifornia....who can figure!...

And more bad news. As if the devastating 88,000 new jobs figures aren't bad enough this week, we now learn Fisker is firing 80% of it's employees and will go belly up.

More of our taxpayers money under this worthless administration wasted.

Here's a suggestion Mr. President. Get the hell out of the car business and stay out. What WERE you thinking? Get out of the solar panels business. What WERE you thinking?

The silence from the left is deafening but I suppose by now, they all know global warming doesn't exist and never did exist. Wind farms are a very costly joke at our expense, thousands of birds are dead because of them and our tax dollars have been totally wasted on this crazy nonsense.

Had Romney been elected, we would probably be drilling for more oil in our own country, creating more jobs. It's enough to make you want to tear your hair out.

But you have a grand trip to Martha's Vineyard Mr. President. You certainly deserve yet another vacation. And that whopping $33,000 you are giving back to the treasury out of the $400,000 salary you get - well, it is actually miserly. 5%. Wow! Others are giving back 20%.

Meanwhile your black brothers in America have a 25% unemployment rate but who's looking at skin color?

“And we have long known what you lefties favor. Limiting or doing away with 2nd Amendmant rights.”

Absolute hogwash and you know it.

“Your willingness to grovel has been stated by you right here on multiple occasions.”

I find it odd that anyone would consider actually following the letter of the law to be “groveling” – oh wait, I forgot who wrote that bit of ignorance. Never mind.

I’m sure that you also operate a motor vehicle without a driver’s license because to have one would be indicative of “groveling.” Pathetic.

Oh, yeah, almost forgot – LOL!

@OKR

"You seem to be under the impression that governors and presidents are dictators.

The system of government, at both the federal and state levels, is set up to prevent this.

States have bicarmel legislatures where bills are originated. Both houses of the legislature need to pass a bill which is then sent to the governor to be signed.

First, in California, the state legislature is, and had been for many years, democratic. Even though " Arnold " is a Republican, he didn't have much influence over the legislature.

Second, calling "Arnold" a Republican is very different than calling him a conservative. He is more of a RINO- yet compared to the CA legislature, he was very conservative."

Funny you should say this now, when just a short time ago, you were saying that Obama, as chief executive, is solely to blame for the mess we have now. Hmmmm....your opinion has changed already?

Oh ,yeah, I forgot IOKIYAR

We are living in a dying country!! So says Rush Limbaugh. A country in decline overseen by Barack Hussein Obama.

As we continue to slide into decline, obama pushes loans to those who will be unable to pay them back, pushes getting more out of the rich.

American Enterprise Institute stats are bleak. We now have nearly 90 MILLION AMERICANS OUT OF WORK, largest ever.

While 88,000 found work in March (a dismal figure), we had the largest number dropping out of the labor force in a year. Had they counted those, the true unemployment rate would not be 7.6% but 15%.

663,000 dropped out of the work force. The AP won't be reporting this. Take note, neither will Media Matters, Rachel Maddow, etc. Actual jobs available has plummeted. These figures are actual government figures, reported by legitimate news sources and that does not include the leftist media.

Eight (8) million are now on disability and 388,000 new people just applied for unemployment in March.

These stats are the obama admin policies at work. Some libs will say sequester did it. It didn't.

continue to back obama, think he is working hard to find answers. He isn't. This was his plan, laid out for the world in his first overseas trip, take us down a notch as we are kind of evil, use the European model, make us equal w/the third world countries.

Congrats! It's a great success. What you will learn the hard way is that once America the great is gone, there is no other country to take our place. You will finally see, we really were the greatest country on earth....but it will be too late then.

Then perhaps you should take a reading comprehension class. Obama has proposed a budget, just the fact that neither house of Congress likes it one iota does not mean he did not propose one. Oops...darn those pesky facts.

CA's issues stem from the state's very liberal laws.

"And now we see the truth of what righties favor."

And we have long known what you lefties favor. Limiting or doing away with 2nd Amendmant rights.

Of course making illegal a vast array of currently legal firearms is not a big problem with you. After all, you are the one who admits that multiple times you have begged the govt. times in different states for permission to carry a gun, even though you did not need their permission to so. Your willingness to grovel has been stated by you right here on multiple occasions.

Speaking of gun grabbers, here is the fun story of the day. A member of congress, one Diana DeGette (democrat, of course) said this about limiting magazine capacity and why it was a good thing:

“I will tell you these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those now they’re going to shoot them, so if you ban them in the future, the number of these high capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will have been shot and there won’t be any more available,”

She does not even know that magazines can be reloaded.

A spokesman for her made things worse when she attempted to clarify what DeGette meant by saying:

“The Congresswoman has been working on a high-capacity assault magazine ban for years, and has been deeply involved in the issue,” Juliet Johnson said. “She simply misspoke in referring to ‘magazines’ when she should have referred to ‘clips,’ which cannot be reused because they don’t have a feeding mechanism."

And these idiots think they know enough to craft laws on limiting magazine capacity?

Not leftist enough? Here’s the Denver Post link:

“Try taking your RV to a state park and see what they charge you,…”

Try going to a private RV park and see what THEY charge you! What’s your point?

“Texas has an influx of 10,000 people a day moving out of States run by Dem's and moving to Texas where they can find a job and live with out the Democrat state ruining them.”

Can’t find that story, please post a link. BTW – that would be 300,000 a month or 3,600,000 a year. See how ridiculous that is?

“Democrats are destroying this country …”

BTW – Obama won, deal with it.

“What part of ‘shall not be Infringed’ did they miss?”

And now we see the truth of what righties favor. They want to make certain that every felon and mentally challenged individual be allowed to have a weapon, despite the fact that 90% of Americans want to see a program of universal background checks as a modicum, of protection from arming people who obviously should not possess a weapon.

I liken this to someone defending the right – under the Fist Amendment – for a pervert to publish and distribute books, magazines and videos featuring child pornography. How did those laws come about? Aren’t they a violation of the perverts First Amendment rights?

Poor lil righties – on the wrong side, again, as usual.

@The Root

Last I checked we've already infringed on that right quite a bit, then, right?
Let's start with the Gun Control Act of 1968
Can a felon own a gun? Nope.
Can a fugitive own a gun? Nope.
Can someone dishonorably discharged from the armed forces own a gun? Nope.

There are quite a few more restrictions in there, but the point is that you don't seem to know how the laws of the U.S. work.

Furthermore, the Supreme Court ruled LONG ago that the militia portion of the 2nd amendment is pretty important, and that gun ownership is not unlimited.

You're not a legal scholar, you're decades behind the curve in terms of understanding reality. You need to understand how much research and talking has already taken place on this topic before you start in on it yourself.

Universal background checks.

What part of "shall not be Infringed" did they miss?

What about the White House being closed to visitors for the first time EVER when we are not in a state of war.....Because it "costs" too much....But the can go jetting to Go skiing and play golf in Florida and vacation in Hawaii and the Bahamas....While the US is in "The worst financial crisis since the Great Depression”? (Obama's own words..Look it up)

Obama and Ilk=1%ers.

Have you been to Mexifornia lately and seen what liberalism and Dem's have done to that State? It is sickening!
Try taking your RV to a state park and see what they charge you, plus there are people who have lost their houses and living in their RV's in State parks and the State has jacked prices out of sight.....nice of them huh?
Texas has an influx of 10,000 people a day moving out of States run by Dem's and moving to Texas where they can find a job and live with out the Democrat state ruining them. Mexifornia and New York among the worst!
As far as gun control goes and schools have you ever heard of a school that does not have "Gun Free Zone" on them being hit by left wing whacko's? Why is it Banks don't have "Gun Free Zones" signs on them....just a thought.
Democrats are destroying this country and if they are all like my whacky left wing sister, we are in big trouble and I think we have several writing in paper, you included!

Pleas, by all means go ahead and laugh …. And now explain how the righties can claim Obama has never presented a budget and then state that his budget has doubled The Criminals budget. Total hogwash of course, but please, present your argument in a cohesive manner. I will be waiting.

@Tj

When he said "Since the righties keep whining that Obama has never proposed a budget it is thereby impossible for him to have doubled The Criminals." He was just spouting nonsense.

And of course he gives no evidence of anyone saying ovomit never proposed a budget. It is just more of his leftist unsubstantiated BS.


But it does work to deflect the conversation away from the truth they do not wish to be face. That even domocrats don't like his proposals. Leftists don't like to be reminded of previous budget that was rejected 100% by all democrats in the Senate and rejected 100% by all democrats in the House. It does not fit with their hope & change fantasy. Has any other president had their budget proposals reject by everyone like that?

Here's hoping the next budget, that he's doing everything to avoid presenting, does as well as that one did.

LOL
